Yet, there are some thinking people out there, not politicians, who are trying hard to find ways to create jobs. This July 23 article by Barbara G. Ellis on Truthout.org, "Put 15 Million Back to Work Fixing $2.2 Trillion in Infrastructure: the Works Progress Administration" makes a great argument for solving our jobs problem; one that would employ millions of workers and buy time to develop permanent new industries.

 

America needs more in-depth, innovative thinking from our governmental leaders, from our business community and individuals on how to create new industries and rebuild our manufacturing base. This is not at all an impossible task but someone has to jumpstart the effort. That's where the wealth of America must be infused; not in debilitating wars. What more proof does this president need to finally convince him that he must bring an end to these wars and direct a massive job creation program?

 

Something is just not right in America; in fact, something is very, very wrong.
