Will The Economy get Better?

The Christmas shopping season got a real boost. There were some super sale items that drove the buying. Lap Tops and Flat Screen T.V.s were hot tickets. If the price is right, people will buy. This will create jobs.

The economy is driven by perceptions. In other words, how people feel. The more people spend and buy the better it gets. The key word is confidence.

In closing, our leaders must always exhibit confidence. They must be bold in their thinking and actions. Jobs give people life. The more jobs developed the better off we all will be in the future. Please, tell me, what do you think?

Thanksgiving Day.

Pro business and Jobs

I have been fighting for a full employment act for a very long time. We need jobs badly. If you have a job you should be concerned because the fewer people working the more others may get laid off. We must look to new areas to create work. I have joined a new movement that should draw your attention. Please review the following info and share . Please tell me, what do you think?

Tennessee, California and Michigan Lead the Way in Educating and Inspiring Next Generation of Entrepreneurs Nov. 16 – 22
Interactive Activities Calendar Helps Locate Regional Events for Participants

Washington, DC (Nov. 5, 2009) – More than 1,000 partners – including top universities, non-profit organizations, successful entrepreneurs, government agencies and corporate sponsors – have currently signed up to support and initiate activities for Global Entrepreneurship Week/USA 2009, Nov. 16 - 22. The Week will engage young people in 87 countries around the world and encourage them to pursue entrepreneurial ideas through local, national and global activities designed to help them explore their potential as self-starters and innovators.

Those interested in participating can identify a host of activities, including virtual and face-to-face events, large-scale competitions and intimate networking gatherings through the interactive Global Entrepreneurship Week activities calendar. The activities calendar, which lists hundreds of events across the United States, can be searched by key word or sorted by location to help participants access the Week’s many resources and events.

Among the notable activities included in the calendar is NYSE Euronext Mentoring Madness, which brings together well-known entrepreneurs – like Snoop Dogg and Blake Mycoskie of TOMS Shoes – with more than 200 local college students and aspiring entrepreneurs to create an open dialogue about successful entrepreneurship.

Also included on the calendar are movie screenings for "Ten9Eight," a documentary that chronicles the stories of the teenage entrepreneurs who arrive in New York City for a grueling day of presentations in a national business plan competition organized by the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE). You'll find more information on these and other featured activities on the www.unleasingideas.org site.

Co-founded in 2008 by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation in the United States and Make Your Mark, a business-led, government-backed campaign in the United Kingdom, Global Entrepreneurship Week is designed to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs.

"During last year’s inaugural Global Entrepreneurship Week, we engaged more than 3 million people in more than 75 countries around the globe," said Carl Schramm, president and chief executive officer of the Kauffman Foundation. "With the support generated so far in 2009, we're set to reach even more young people, inspiring them to acquire the knowledge, skills and networks needed to grow innovative, sustainable enterprises that have a positive impact on their lives and communities."

Could Health Care Reform be Lost?

The off-year election results are in and the Democrats lost two important states. New Jersey and Virginia were piked-up by The Republicans. This may have been the kiss of death for health care reform. The real question is why dose these results kill reform?

In order to really move legislation in Washington D.C. is to have a mandate. Time has run out. The buzzer has gone off. Do we really need reform? Will it cost too much? Will reform get more people covered? Should a jobs bill gone before health reform? The answer to all of these question is, yes.

A more important question is, what will happen now? The answer to this question is somewhat historic in nature. The word is nothing. Our system is set-up for people with resources. Those who are in poverty will most likely stay in poverty. The middle-cast will stay in the middle and the rich will no doubt get what? Richer.

In closing, as for me I will continue to hope for the best. The same rules apply. We must do our best for ourselves. The true reform is get yours. Do not worry about your neighbor. Just do what you must do. Get yours. Sure we thought that there would be change. We got it. Things have gotten worst. The philosophy of do for self is a hot ticket. The have not are simply out of luck. I am sorry but that is what I think. Please tell me, what you think?
