"More Jobs" are promised Americans by political candidates. But it's bullshit.

Who will hire in substantial numbers? Nobody will employ the unmotivated or poorly educated. America has not invested sufficiently in education & infrastructure. Increasing portions of our own markets are being wrested away by clever people from elsewhere. Positive change will never come from electing a not-so-bad political joker. We need more good ideas for becoming prosperous & competitive.

My best suggestion for many communities is to decouple with the automobile economy. Change your streets & parking spaces into gardens, piazzas and pedestrian-focused market strips. Too much community space is now -- without debate -- given over to ugly dirty Joe Automobile.
