    in your thoughts. If you have somethin' better, I'm all ears.

    The only way we win as a country is if we brainstorm, learn from our competition, and then out-think them.

    The anti-intellectualism that seems so vogue in the other party will hopefully only lead to their destruction......not the destruction of the country as a whole.

      directly, but something similar. You give tax breaks to companies that hire unemployed people. Could also be a loan they get in return for hiring. Any number of things.

      When opportunity calls pick up the phone and give it directions to your house.

        I don't dispute that tax cuts/credits can spur growth. But the Republicans hand out blank checks to millionaires and they don't even ASK them to create jobs.

        Instead you target the folks that have 6 employees and you directly incent them to bump it up to 8.

          Not AT&T or Exxon. I just see this working getting folks hired and also getting money in a secondary way into the economy, which is how those loans would have to be used.

          Capital improvements. New computers. Power tools. A truck. More office space. R&D. So not only would you have new employees earning money and not taking government aid, you'd have money going to your local car dealer, hardware store, you name it.
