Too big to fail firms will NOT tolerate anything that will not surely give them at least as much profit as business as usual would. They are risk averse and need their profits almost handed to them on a silver platter. The 99% need for the government to print up a bunch of printing press money and use it to bribe the too big to fail firms to do those few things (1 replace fossil fuel with sustainable energy, 2. Fix the health care system so it works as well and efficiently as in the rest of the industrialized world, 3. Treat the poor decently enough to minimize the cost to society of having them.) that the 99% really need.

Innovation does not mean that we have to revert back to the olden days of manufacturing we can innovate many of modern technology!

'Bulls, Bears and the Ballot Box' [book]: Of the five best economic presidents since Herbert Hoover, only one is a Republican. The paydirt finding: $100,000 invested during the 40 years Republicans had the White House would be worth $126,027. The same amount invested in the stock market during the Democrat's 40 years would be $3,912,210.
Stuff that in your ballot box.

These are tough times. I do not believe there are any easy, simple solutions.

I am all for Obarmy but if he is all for innovation he will repeal 'Second to invent' aka 'First to steal' that he signed into law last year.

And repeal the patent attorney industrys' patent on the patent system. And let inventors have a say.

If a patent system is adopted that reflects the UNDHR we will see a 3,000 to 5,000% increase in the number of successful inventions. And a better chance that the planet will 'survive' - from the human point of view.

What's scary, scary, scary is that Romney was even considered a possible candidate and then is so close in these polls. What does that tell us about the American population? Does this come from having grown up on TV and Cheetos? Millions and millions of dollars spent on campaigns (talking about how they're going to cut funds for social services) and there are children starving in this country? Our military budget is the largest in the world and we contemplate more war?
We're sick and I honestly think it's too late to find a cure. Just have to do the best we can to help each other.
