THE STATUS QUO HAS TO GO - Americas Tipping Point

The Hoover Dam was built in 1936. It produces over 4 BILLIONkw of electricty a YEAR. 70 years later and a QUANTUM LEAP in technology we are still using the same Old Crap! These numbers are DISGRACEFUL. People must keep in mind that this is also the holiday seasons where employment number would come up a hair so it's not real Rocket Science. There is no chart anyone can show me that will predict the future. The bottom line is America needs an overhaul. A REAL GAME CHANGER. Americas Corporations have TRILLIONS on the side lines for "Uncertainty". One thing is certain is Government and Private Sector need to get together and put America back together or we will have our own Greek Tragedy! We have had this debate of this ridiculous 4% increase in taxes that lead to the downgrade in our Country. Unemployment is still at record levels, the government is Floored with CORRUPTION and until we fundamentally fix our problems here at home nothing will change. It will keep us right here with a divided Nation, Social Unrest, high unemployment, record foreclosures, banks not lending. American Corporations that were founded and built during the Industrial Revolution are being run by BaBy Boomers who pinch pennies for quarterly earnings with no long term view on the horizon. A 4% tax increase is the LEAST of our problems and there is no Question that OUR American Corporations have a fiduciary responsibility to invest here at home. We are loosing ground so fast before our eyes! If the founders of half these companies that are now publicly traded were still alive I would assure you half the CEOs would be fired. Eisenhower and or Roosevelt would have had the other half locked up as Communists. We do not need a jobs bill or paint a bridge. We need a National Smart Grid Infrastructure Plan like The Manhattan Project. We are still talking about going from one liquid gold of oil to another liquid gold of nat gas which is great and should be PART of a solution. The day China no longer needs us they can dump our debt on the open market and we would be a 3rd world country overnight paying 20 dollars for a gallon of gas. Not only is America giving them the technology we are paying them to do it with nothing in return coming back to the states but cheap products. They have stolen Intellectual Property Rghts, Piracy and NO Economist can answer the question that the TRILLIONS it will cost us in the future in lost revenues and American Jobs when they turn the tides and compete against us. Their own Government uses Oracles software, only difference is they copied it and made it their own. Great! China is investing 10 times more in Renewables than we are because they have a long term outlook. Our politicians long term outlook is their next election our our Corporations long term outlook is there next quarterly earnings report. The durations of recovery in unemployment from our recessions are getting longer and longer to the point these numbers are outright scary and I worked on Wall Street. Any Economist or Analyst with 1/2 a brain will tell you that. We need real Change and Leadership. Corporate America owns our government and they are the ones who really dictate Policy. That has to go to or eventually The American People will do it for them. We need to invest in America. WE THE PEOPLE make up 70% of GDP! You don't bite the hand that feeds you! Corporate America has a MORAL obligation. Our Founding Fathers would have called it DUTY! China has one interest and that is to be the largest economy in the world. What do you think they
