-           Technical professionals, not managers being in charge of outsourcing.

-           Significant technical presence in politics with emphacis on big national projects.

-           Transformation of the corporate   strategy   back to the product- oriented one.

-           Strong, organized and highly qualified manufacturing   people; Trade Unions are actually good for   professionals.


And   here's the one overcasting all the others- stop lying.


Someone   said in my former life in Russia   that lie was not economically viable.   That   means that no matter what the lie is about-it is always a waste.   Take the budget issue for instance. GW squandered the budget and when he was doing that GOP was with him. He lied about everything. Just imagine how much money was wasted on the covert vengeance against Valery Plame and you will understand   where the whole US budget went. So when now the   GOP folks howl about   fiscal responsibility they lie through their teeth. Democrats   lie too. They lie     in their vehement effort to lie better then   Republicans. " Everything they can do, we can do better,'- sing the Dems   the same song all the time.   In reality they all serve the same masters.

Lie destroys our country.   It was a lie that paralyzed   the Katrina response and thousands paid the price. It was a lie that sent our troops into the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and we still   are paying for it.   It   is   a lie that our country   will benefit from the predatory outsourcing   and from the losing of the Trade- Unions. It is a lie that our teachers are bad- our schools are bad because we do not want our children to study; we do not have perspectives for them.



I do not want   to be super- rich. I want to be able to work for living and be valuable and useful as me, not some compendium of skills. And I want respect, very much so.   The climate of total disrespect we cultivated had created monsters. I don't want to be one of   them. I want   to live and   die human,


Considering all of the above on whose side should   I be?   On whose side we all should be?   Isn't it obvious that   GOP and Dems   had abandoned us; they sold themselves   to the highest bidder/ Then what must we become? We must become   a highest bidder. And that brings me     to the   last   point in my stylish narrative: we need a victory.
