    I was listening to On Point yesterday, and they had an hour discussing whether Americans' innovations and entrepreneurship would restart the economy and employment.  They had four spokesmen who suggested the next big thing could be:

    1. Shopping for rich people using the internet.
    1. Wireless charging for cell phones and small electronic devices.
    1. Computer programs that acted more like people.
    1. Coal gasification.

    We are so screwed.

    •  Yes and scary in PA that both of the candidates (0+ / 0-)

      for Governor favor Marcellus Shale and more drilling. The only difference is the Democrat losing in the polls badly wants to guarantee that all those jobs will be taken by residents of this state and not outsiders. The Republican does not care if all the jobs are taken by residents of TX and OK and PA gets screwed. But he wants to make sure Marcellus does not get taxed.
