    Need signatures, or at the very least feedback!

    Petition here, still waiting for changes to update on fail website. The two important points are 1) people should not feel like sharing it will make their friends look stupid, and 2) people should feel like it has a chance of success, or else they would not support it. (A third key point is that it explains why economists have not supported it.)

    This is the image that is supposed to be showing up on the petition:

    Target: People who like to win
    Sponsored by: (should be) Occupy Wall Street

    The rich are rolling in cash. Capitalists complain they don't have anything to invest in. 18 million houses in the US stand empty as those who can afford them already have one.

    If highly-paid skilled workers spent less time at work, companies could hire more people. This is all it takes to fix our economic problems.

    But economists won't support this because they fear retaliation by the corporations and individuals who control most of the world's wealth, or they are being paid to advocate for the rich.

    Maybe one person could have an "accident". But they can't kill everyone.

    With a simple system like paying skilled workers 1.2x their normal rate for the first 24 hours, and 0.7x after that, people would not feel they are being unfair to colleagues by working less.

    Don't think this is not your problem. This is everyone's problem, due to crime and taxes to fund welfare, unemployment benefits and even prisons.

    Our target is to change the world.

    A CEO, a conservative and a liberal enter a room. There are 10 cookies lying on a platter.

    The CEO takes 9 cookies, then whispers to the conservative, "That liberal is trying to steal your cookie."

    Well, OP, Obama is forcing us into being a nation of part-time workers, so you may get your wish soon enough!

    The dinosaurs. Modern technology would not have been developed if not for fossil fuels, or at least not nearly as quickly.

    There is little to no investment in many sectors of the economy because of the lingering doubt and uncertainty that Obama has fomented for the last 4 years.

    Don't expect things to change until that idiot is gone.

    The smart money will remain on the sidelines or invested abroad as long as this Marxist asshole and his regime are in place.


    They don't call it smart money for nothing.
