Until we have a huge public works project such as the Army Corps of Engineers have had planned since the ‘60’s called NAWAPA we cannot recover prosperity; also Obama may have to go on an extended vacation since he doesn’t seem to know what to do except protect Wall Street, multinational corporations such as BP, and those vacations.

There ain’t gonna be any economic recovery without bringing home industrial manufacturing. The service economy cannot provide enough jobs, and even they cannot afford to continue paying executives the outlandish salaries they have paid themselves all these decades. It is time to wake up from the unreality of living beyond your means!!
