Open Letter to the White House and Mainstream Media
"We will harness the sun and the winds and the soil to fuel our cars and run our factories. And we will transform our schools and colleges and
universities to meet the demands of a new age. All this we can do. All this we will do."
President Barack Obama, Inaugural Address, January 20th, 2009.
Job Creation and the Grassroots Economy
As you know, America is hurting. Jobs are scarce. How are graduates, laid off factory workers, and a slow motion flood of immigrants going to find
work in 2014-2015?
There's a wave of technology, made in the USA, that could provide millions of jobs. But only if given enough news coverage.
America has food, water, finance, nutrition and media issues. These public domain, forgotten technologies, listed in detail in Appendix A, can begin
to solve all these problems.
Hydroponics, Aquaponics, Fog Collectors, Liposomal Vitamin C, Vertical Axis MagLev Wind Turbines, Magnesium Oil, Low Tech Vertical Farms........
and much more.
A lot of these ideas cost less than one hundred dollars to set up.
Calling all backyard geniuses.
Why aren't these technologies on the front page of every newspaper?
Token coverage isn't enough. A two minute segment, or half page article can't untangle the economy overnight.
This wave of human innovation can alleviate many human ills, and create millions of jobs. Real recovery will take a ten year media push. Pioneers in
this these disciplines will need to be interviewed again and again until everyone understands these concepts. Can the corporate media defy their
handlers and start to cover these devices?
Cynics have told us that it's not worth the effort writing to Congress and the Senate, but I know that there are a few of you inside the corridors of
power working hard to turn this ship around.
Recovery is Inevitable
This is to put you on notice that America will recover, with or without the help of the Whitehouse and corporate media. Please be aware, a prolonged
silence regarding this simple, open source technology will not help opinion polls or viewer ratings, both of which are in freefall right now.
The Hard Way or The Easy Way
You have two choices. The easy way is that media, congress and entrepreneurs cooperate loosely to make these technologies a household word. The hard
way is that the free market resurrects itself beneath an uneasy silence from corporate America.
What's up Congress? Please don't let 200 million workers suffer while you needle each other over non-issues. Enough partisan pantomimes.
It's jobs, stupid.
Please help America, and the world, recover.
Most of these businesses can be set up for less than a hundred dollars. No typo. A hundred dollars.
Agricultural problems can be solved with hydroponics, aquaponics, low tech vertical farms and more. Water scarcity has dozens of solutions, from
ceramic filters to Atmospheric water generators. Home energy can get a quick boost with Maglev VAWTS. Plenty more where that came from.
Don't Wait for a Leader, America
More than to Congress, Fox, or MSNBC, this is a call to the American people. We didn't write this to stimulate a wave of muttering anti-government
resentment. No one needs to sit waiting for the JOBS act. Kickstarter and bootstrapping will cover set ups costs for now.
The tiny startup price of these grassroots industries means nearly anyone with a head for hard work, and simple, small town businesses nous can turn a
profit. No excuses.
Advertise with flyers, keep a small inventory, and stimulate interest with sale or return.
We will harness the sun and the winds and the soil to fuel our cars and run our factories.
If Obama couldn't realize his visions, the rest of us can step up. Beats sitting and griping. No one
needs approval, permission or assistance from DC.
It's a scrappy plan, but a scrappy plan is better than no plan, as General Patton nearly said.
America will recover.
The only variables are
1) How much self-leadership modern Americans can muster. How long will it take?
2) How long the eerie silence from Washington and the MSM will continue.
No whining plz. If our glorious leaders don't deign to help, we can circumvent the media blockade with a few Tweets and a photocopier:
How that was a lot to take in. That's awesome though! Hopefully We the People can make the change if the President and Congress won't fix anything.
Right now it seems the gov't's only concern is undermining each other and trying to get bigger and more involved in everyone's lives. The irony is
the more involved they are the less good they do. Hate to say it but it's getting obvious they just want a financial collapse.

Honestly I'll say it like my Historical Principles of War teacher put it "look at every great empire in the past. What happened to them? They all
collapsed. Whether it was from being conquered or economical they all collapse and every empire will collapse one day, even the US." See the US is a
fairly young country and we didn't really become a global power until after WW2 (that's a matter of opinion. No definitive answer on that one) and our
economy has been getting worse and worse for over a decade. We the People have the power to make the changes we need in this country, but I'm afraid
it might be too late. We have already been conquered by complacency.

Who cares if it's too late? If it is (which it's not) just go out doing your best.
If the Empire falls, the Republic will RISE. Don't mix the two up.
Conspiracy types have been crowing that the sky's gonna fall in for years.
This is why the controlled alt media lays on the doom thick and heavy year on year. So aware people don't gut up and do something.
"Because people who have no hopes are easy to control; and whoever has the control... has the power!" G'Mork
The Renaissance starts the minute you plant a seed.
But... no pep talks. I'm looking to connect with the 3 per cent.

Rome was a republic and that was its downfall. The word empire is a blanket statement for a powerful country. I'm not trying to be pessimistic I'm
being realistic is all. I've lost hope in society so I do what's best for me and my family and IF the time comes for me to rise up I'll gladly do
so, but until then I'm going to take care of my family. Good luck reaching the 3%. I don't see them being on this site. Also I'm not saying don't
try but I am saying a downfall is inevitable. It's a pattern and truth lies in patterns my friend.
No they're not they only represent 3% of the population haha. Smart assness aside maybe you've heard that speech a million times because it's
truth. Most Americans are just trying to survive. I had to join the Army to put food on the table.
Now off topic: what's the hardest decision you've ever had to make so you can take care of your family?
a reply to: HiAliens
I think people should just focus on their lives and help others when they can. I'm young but I have a lot of depressing stories as well, but that's
neither here nor there. Pretty soon I'll be out of the army because they're cutting close to 400,000 of us next year. So things are going to get a
lot worse in the job market. And to be honest I can't wait for the end of days haha it'd be a lot easier
The free market's always been there, it's just been regulated to near extinction. Too many rules.
Come on now...that's just Rush L. BS and you know it. In fact small start up businesses are being offered tax breaks, regulation incentives and aid
in hiring practices. That's the reason for my expansion into a business that I know absolutely nothing about but the incentives were to good to pass
up, it's a A franchise operation. There is more venture capital available now than I've seen in a very long time. In fact I'm watching a bunch of
Pakistani's unload their truck, starting up a new shop just up the street from mine.
In America the spirit of entrepreneurship is well and thriving for those willing to work maybe get their hands dirty and stop the crybaby whining. I
love America because it's still the land of opportunity. Just ask the guys that own this web site!!!

The free market never died, it was always technically there, true.
Big gov has taken over medicine and charged billions of dollars of taxpayer money for substandard products. Linus Pauling therapy is much cheaper and
better than pharmaceutical heart disease protocols. I know because I cured myself of heart disease with nutrition, twice.
Selling Iodine is restricted by state intervention, the only type of Iodine on general release is Povidone. Povidone Iodine contains toxins. SSKI and
Lugols need a prescription.
Those two small medical examples alone have caused untold suffering. Huge amounts of cash has been drained out of the free market economy and
channeled into arms, offshore banks, and god knows what else.
We could've researched and sold it ourselves, but they didn't make it easy for us.
It was a nightmare, but whatever happened happened. We can get on with what we've got, I agree.
