    Isn't it true that even if you back go to college and get an engineering degree, you will stil find a tough job market, lower wages than in the 90's, higher insurance costs, a sluggish 401k, and higher cost of living?

    And economizing won't help the economy.

    We've gone through this before. The Democrats will have to fix what the gop did. We'll have to tax imports so it is cheaper to make things in the US again.

    We might need a new kind of union. One for all workers.

    We have to roll back the Reagan and Bush tax cuts to the rich and lower the masses taxes so consumer confidence goes back up.

    We have to make it easier to start a small business, not just talk about it.

    We have to abolish the Federal Reserve. The bankers own America. The bankers and oil companies were deregulated and caused this recession. We should pnalize them financially. Same for the Defense companies that stole or lost billions in iraq. The money we take from them should go to social security. Bail out the home owners. Don't bail them out but give them a fair interest rate.

    Give subsodize to the car companies, not the oil companies.

    Give subsodize to small organic farmers to grow fruits and veggies, not to big farmers to not grow food,or when they produce crap.

    I could go on, but basically if smart non politicians could control government without corporate lobbiest corruption, they could fix the problem.
    That's another one. The usa is for we the people, not corporations. They can't vote so why are they involved? One person, one vote. No more bribing politicians.

    If we don't fix what's realy wrong, we'll never fix todays problems.
