17 days and counting: Go GO America

I wish I had enough money to book a suite (and tickets) for the inauguration of our first black president.

I will not be attending in person, as it is too difficult to (even) think of...

1-4 million people, buses (over 2-3,000 expected) at last estimate

At any rate, better seats on TV.

PS: I declare that We are OFFICIALLY in the SECOND GREAT DEPRESSION

+--------------------------------------------------------------------------+
OK, you wanted a Political discussion: Here goes.

The background I believe that:
* We're HEADING into a DEPRESSION.
* It's going to be as BAD as the last one.
* The current failures only bring us 25% into the problem!!
* According to Robert Reich (former Sec'y of Labor under Clinton): The only number that he EVER saw, defining the
depression was that the unemployment rate hovered around 25%.
* We need a new deal.
* After 58 years of NO Health Care Reform (since 1950!) it will FINALLY be coming soon...
* We've managed to WASTE a FULL generation (from Zero to thirty) with decaying social, educational, and interpersonal skills.
* Our nation is no longer DOING (producing) anything.
SO, from these few premises, I have extrapolated a great deal of items to FIX our society...

But....
We need to make sure that a number of issues are resolved ALL at once.
If we don't do them ALL at once, its like juggling three RUNNING chain saws, but dropping one!

Here's what I came up with:

We need to do the FOLLOWING to FIX our Society:
* Create A Living Wage
* Create a National Single payer Healthcare
* Create a National 3-4 year draft (or alternate service)
* Create a Federally paid Day Care starting at six months
* Implement Tax Reform on the ULTRA Rich
* Lobbying (Political Reform)
* Education
* Infrastructure (road /bridge/Systems repairs)
* Lack of Training/futures
* Truth and Reconcilliation Commission
* A new "Manhattan" project, focusing on Energy INDEPENDENCE

Social anxiety disorder can either be temporary or permanent, or somewhere in between. It is a conditionwhereby the sufferer feels extremely afraid especially in the social situations. The only way to make sure you do or do not have social anxiety disorder is to get a thorough examination via a specialist in the said field.http://www.buy-xanax-online-now.com
