MORE INEXPENSIVE PLAN TO CREATE MILLIONS OF JOBS 1) Find and send home all illegals. Employ border guards and build the fence along Mexico to keep them there. Mexico complains, but their own southern border tries to repulse Central Americans from coming in to find work. Now there are hundreds of thousands of construction, farm, factory and other jobs open. And less people on the dole. Throw out the stupid rule that foreigners bearing children in the USA automatically makes the kids citizens. 2) Throw out any international agreement that allows any of the stimulus money to be spend on any foreign supplies, goods or services. 3) Build a thousand highly automated factories to replace the significant stuff we buy from Asia. Let's build our own televisions, electronics, appliances, compact fluorescent bulbs, again. Doesn't matter if they are breakeven. A job is a job. 4) Hire 300,000 currently unemployed people to go into all older or lower-class housing, and screw in free CFC bulbs, replace old, caulk, insulate, and START IT NEXT MONTH Replace older heating oil with "American natural gas" heaters. Now you don't need heating oil subsidies for the poor any more. Uses a lot less CO2 to boot. 5) Give huge incentives to owners of LARGE older vehicles to turn them in and replace them with smaller new AMERICAN made vehicles. We can use the proposed cap and trade to do this, rather than cleaning up pollution in 3rd world countries to earn credits. 6) Redo all levies in coastal cities that might turn into another katrina. Think what $5 billion would have done in New Orleans, saving us over $200 billion trying to house displaced residents and rebuild it. 7) Build massive geothermal stations wherever there is good underground heat sources. Stop requiring so many years to start a nuclear power station. Come up with safe designs, and allow them to be built en masse. Stop arguing about keeping nuclear fuel safe for a million years, and stuff it into the place we already spend billions planning. 8) Cut off international aid. Spend that $20+ billion aiding those in THIS country who are still destitute. 9) Put a new $1.50 tax on gas or petroleum heating, to push the price back up near where it was, so people continue on this newfound energy efficiency binge, and actually make them cost competitive. Use the money to build the clean energy stuff. 10) Start 500 new nursing schools in THIS country, since it is so hard to get into the existing ones (try it!!!). Then, there will be 10,000-50,000 new American nurses, instead of importing from other countries to finish the shortage. 11) Why are we importing engineers, technicians and programmers from Poland and India? There are unemployed ones in THIS country! If we don't have enough, put more Americans who test well into these programs at schools. Build NEW schools if there isn't enough space for them, nad hire existing unemployed technical people to teach at them. 12) Shut off immigration by those who have poor job skills or aren't relatively well off for the most part until things improve here. That is what some countries ALREADY do. 13) Give Puerto Rico its independence and kiss it goodbye. You would not believe how many people there need public assistance. 14) We import far more than we export. free trade seems to mean, "you sell to the USA, and don't really buy from the USA" New rule - unless it is raw materials or we absolutely need it, you must buy 70-80%, of what you sell here, back an American goods and services or pay the difference as a tariff price. Basically, our market is open, and much of the rest of the world depends on selling to the US, Europe or Japan. Do we need to be China's employment program??? They pretty much copy all our intellectual property and our movies, shows and software are pirated there. Feel free to add.
