Modernizing the Mealer 3R economic Energy Plan...

 WE MUST GET THIS RIGHT THE FIRST TIME.. In the private sector! 

THE ECONOMY and MEALER COMPANIES SOLUTION... the ONLY viable plan.

The economy has not disappeared due to one problem, but several problems. The main problem is also the solution with which we will revive the economy.

Everyone must agree that with the best mortgage, the safest mortgage and the best loan possible... Not a single man or woman anywhere can purchase on credit without a job. good paying jobs at Walmart or Home Depot selling Made in China junk or scrap lumber will secure a loan... especially with the lay-offs we see today and will see tomorrow.

USA jobs, mainly in the manufacturing sector is the solution and I have the means to get there.... I won't waste breathe or your time with too many details of this solution that MUST be instituted in the private sector now. There are so many "experts" out there who come up with bad ideas... I am not an 'economic expert' who has polished seats with his/her hind-end more than having done anything else.

This plan I worked out was done so as to offer a replacement the fuel taxes that Mealer American Motors Corporation automobiles would eventually do away with. *MealerAMC autos also act as home power sources...

The government (of any country) would lose hundreds of billions in fuel tax revenue and have no decent way to re-gain it. The 3R changes that!

If you can now grasp why I have put extensive researched into this plan, you can read on....If not.. Start over and read slowly.

All communities nationwide would gain immediate revenue from these training programs and local community colleges would benefit as well.

The Mealer (aka McCain) 3R Economic Energy Plan entails utilizing the millions of vacant buildings (like old Walmart and stores that were put out of business by Walmart) as hands on training in USA MFG. America has thousands of '3R teachers' looking for jobs and many of them from old union killed businesses that are now in China and Mexico. No matter what the trainees build... It can be re-sold as Made in USA quality products. Does anyone remember the days when most products in America had that stamp?

Huge tax write offs for building owners do differ payments or donate buildings or years of lease amounts, plus fair write offs for equipment that is purchased and deferred. (I have spoken with several USA tooling companies and they are thrilled to work this way!)

Paid 3R Schooling is a great moral booster and means even more American jobs.      Paid?     Sure..      The students are paid to learn as per federal and state higher education/school programs, PLUS they earn a percentage of the products that are sold. Once again, I checked... Even 'evil' Walmart will stock these goods... If some slave labor Red China Communist or a poor child in a sweatshop can build the Chinese junk we buy today... A skilled (and learning) adult American can do better.

Another huge revenue source is packaging these small private businesses as commodities (...checked... it's legal) and selling them to the thousands of  "Speculators".. You know, like the crude oil speculators who helped destroy the economy we are now being forced to save?  "Packaged an group commodities" makes these businesses much less likely to fail, and I am certain teams or memberships will be formed to help one another when certain manufacturing is slow in demand.

These small businesses need not compete with the Walmart made In China craze that really killed the economy. They need not manufacture billions of 'widgets'... only thousands. There is no monopoly in the deal, just a great job to be had. This of course, is after the trainees are out of the schooling stages and several of them past the advanced business law schooling  -'quick classes' (they can learn as they grow the companies)... These people with the proformas would find the huge new class of investors looking for huge profits, take their packaged team of loosely collected USA MFG companies as one LLC or Corporation and put a lot of people to work.

For every USA MFG position, a new economy around that person would be created in food services, clothing, etc... including housing and local government. THIS IS HUGE.

Go ahead, find the problems with this plan (typos excluded)... I know your concerns.

I already have the answers and they are well researched and legal answers.

There is no other way to save the economy.

NONE!

 NOT A SINGLE VIABLE PLAN, except the 3R...

If you can find a better plan, I will buy it!

Just like Mealer Companies products and our non-fossil fuel, non-EV automobiles are the next phase for technical growth, this economy saving plan is IT for the future of America and the world economy.

No. Don't even suggest what you are thinking...Neither Mealer Companies, nor myself make a dime from instituting this plan and saving America... I refuse to.

 HOWEVER, I do plan to sell every American one of my cars and take us off the grid when possible...

 HOPEFULLY... See me on FoxNews soon!

Everyone and their mother are on social networking sites

Everyone knows the term “social networking” or “social networks” by now. Most people are a member of a social site weather it be myspace, friendster, or some other site. There are literally 1000’s of different social sites. Some are more social than others and some probably shouldn’t even call themselves “social. but since that’s the big thing now days, everyone jumps on the bandwagon.

Basically it’s come to the point where everyone and every different group has their own little online club. They are generally broken down in the following ways.

The first, and biggest social groups are general sites like myspace where anyone and everyone signs up. There is no deciding factor on who should signup. If you’re looking to meet people in your area, Myspace is usually your best bet because of its HUGE userbase. I don’t know the exact number of members, but they have millions. Each town you can find 1000’s of your peers with an account, even tiny towns have a good presence on the site.

Second, you have social sites that target by race or religion, or even sexual preference and even, like this site, political preferences. These are definitely smaller than normal social sites but the members also seem to have a much tighter bond. Sort of like a small town feel where everyone knows everyone.

Third you have geo-location social sites. For example we have one in my town called Fort Myers Business Networking. I’m not a member myself because they charge money and I’m definitely not going to pay for something that should be free. But most decent sized towns do have social sites, just search Google for something like “[your town] social” and things will pop up.

Weather you like it or not social sites are going to remain popular. Just like social groups in real life have always been around, we will always have social sites on the web too.

My first post

I’m probably one of the last people on Earth to get a blog. My wife has one, my kids have them, my friends and business partners have them, and even my business competition have them. I feel like I’m literally the last one to get a blog.

So my name is Scott and I live in Naples, Florida. It’s nice here, usually stays sunny and warm all year long. We do get a few cold days in January but it’s not too bad. I did get ice on my window last week in the morning but that was the last cold day we were supposed to have I think, now it’s back to the warm weather and sunshine.

One of the reasons I decided to finally get a blog is to not only blog, but to try and get some awareness for my company. I’m a small business owner(Bonita Window Treatments) and things are hard right now, everyone is keeping closer tabs on where they spend money. A couple years ago in South West Florida it was like a total free-for-all. People had so much money they didn’t even think before spending it. Now it’s not like that, people are losing their homes and losing their jobs.

So that’s it for now, I’ll post more soon. I just wanted to make my introduction post and get warmed up. Now I need to find something interesting to post about.

Call For Development Of An Activist Empowering Plug-In

Cross posted at: The 41st Vote.

I am degreed in Computer Information Systems.  I do not make my living in the field and am not a "coder".  I have always been more focused on the Business Process side of it and how  do you use technology to solve a problem and improve processes.  That being said, I have become active in my local party and as, you can see from this blog, activist on the web.  I am determined to help bridge the gap between the GOP and the Democrat party when it comes to the use of technology.  To that end I fully support the goals of Rebuild The Party, one of which is to "Recruit 5 million new Republican online activists".

Wordpress has developed into a powerful tool for activists. It is simple to setup and administer for those less technically inclined, . As a result it is ubiquitous within cyberspace. While Drupal, and to some extent, Joomla have extremely powerful widgets that can be utilized for political activism (CiviRM, Write A Newspaper etc.). Tthe added administrative overhead of those extrememly powerful platforms make them less so.  I have an idea for a plug-in that could greatly empower the  grassroots t impact the behavior of our elected Representatives.

In developing this blog, I have scoured the Wordpress site and the Internet looking for plug-ins that can leverage the power of my blog by making it simple for day to day people to impact a specific piece of legislation or political opinion.  I am most focused on enabling people to contact their Congressman or Senator.  As many of you know, the Congress has gone to great lengths to filter and make it more difficult for people to contact them.  Mail suffers from delay resulting from the need to process it for biological terrorism and spam drove most of them to secrete their e-mail addresses When we capture the eyes and imagination of a member of the grassroots, we need to capitalize on that by making it simple for them to express their will immediately and in the broadest form.

To that end, I thought of a need for a plug-in that would have the following Charter:

"Empower the user to immediately respond, through all available means,  to the party that can impact the desired outcome."

  1. The specific requirements:
    1. Provide an interface to a predefined template with wording that will form the basis of the communication for a specific purpose.
    2. Provide a method of searching for the most effective targets of that communication, specifically that constituents elected Congresman for his District and surrounding Districts within a specific radius and the Elected Senators that represent him.
    3. Provide for the ability to send the communication by all the following methods of transit, both individually and in concert:
      1. E-mail
      2. Fax
      3. Snail Mail
    4. Provide access through an API, to a database, to be maintained by a sponsoring organization that will contain the e-mail contact, FAX number, telephone number and the Washington mail address for each and every member of Congress and for all of this information for each and every elected State House Member and Senator of the 50 states and the territories.
    5. Function as a plug-in to the Wordpress platform.
    6. Provide the ability to insert the title of the blog post from within which that individual was stirred to react.
    7. Insert the permalink of that post into the e-mail body.
    8. Ability to color the background of the subject line with a color determined by the blog author for visual targeting.
    9. Insert the e-mail of the letter submitter, simultaneously capturing that information to the blogs subscriber list.

It may be that we need to scale back the scope.  That is for the coders to determine.  My purpose is to place the idea into the activist community to try to stir someone to undertake the development of the plug-in.  I intend to cross post this at Rebuild the Party and the attendant community sites.  The database will require the largest effort I am sure, but among all of the activist out there we can reduce the manhours per individuals to collect that data.  I know that the data is available for purchase, however I am unsure that it would be feasable to utilize that data within the scope of this requirment due to licensing terms. I anyone woudl like to discuss this, find me at these links Facebook or through the Action Network of the Rebuild the Party website.

A 2010 resolution: No more Oberweis/Jenkins style candidates

A lot of old time Republican senators have decided to hang up their cleats, or may decide to do so in the coming months.

Already deciding to retire are Mel Martinez (Florida); Sam Brownback (Kansas) and this week Kit Bond (Missouri).

There is also a rumor on RedState that Ohio's George Voinovich may step down at term's end.    

All things being equal, we are usually better off running an incumbent, but unless we adopt a Weekend at Bernie's  strategy the day will come to replace incumbents.

The future of the Republican party will depend on who gets to step up in these races.

The Right's Successful Vision for Education Reform

If we're going to successfully renew popular support for conservative ideas, the right must capitalize on opportunities to demonstrate how we offer a better vision for America than the left. Florida's success story with education reform is a good example.

Since the 1960s, liberals have backed a failed strategy for improving education -- increasing government spending, growing the federal bureaucracy, and largely resisting serious reform efforts at the state and local level.  Over time, per-pupil spending has doubled and the Washington bureaucracy has ballooned.  But we’ve seen little improvement in student learning.  Millions of kids continue to pass through the nation’s public schools without receiving a quality education.  

Unfortunately, we should expect more of the same from the new administration and congressional majority.  But this will give conservatives a real opportunity to offer parents and taxpayers a more compelling vision for improving education.  A vision based on conservative principles -- limiting Washington’s ineffective role and offering a broad reform agenda at the state and local level.  Growing evidence shows that unlike federal intervention, aggressive-state level reform can deliver real progress.

Thanks to the leadership of former Gov. Jeb Bush, Florida is proving that conservative education reforms work. Over the past decade, the Sunshine State has enacted sweeping reforms, including quality testing and transparency reporting, ending social promotion, improving classroom instruction, and strengthening teaching by offering performance pay incentives. Florida also leads the nation in offering parents the power to choose the best school for their children.  

These reforms have led to dramatic improvement. Since 1998, Florida students have made impressive gains on the National Assessment of Educational Progress, far outpacing the national average. Importantly, the biggest strides have been made by Hispanic and African-American children. In fact, Florida’s Hispanic students now have higher NAEP reading scores than the statewide average of all students in 15 states (see map below).

The cop who tackled a bicyclist in NYC this July has been indicted using the YouTube footage capturing the incident

in

The officer claimed that the bicyclist had shoved him before the officer tackled him back, but the video shows no such incident.

Critical Mass is held on the last Friday of every month in over 300 cities across the world. Bicyclists join together for a cross-city ride moving as one unit and often disobeying traffic laws. The movement is intended to allow bicyclists, who typically must watch out for cars on the road, to be the traffic themselves.

We need to do something if we are to survive!!!

There needs to be a change to the Republican Party starting with the graceful exit of the current leadership. They have done their best and they need to step aside. It is clear that we need voices that are current and no longer live in the past, mind you I do not feel we should in any way forget the past we just need to learn from it and move forward.

Further changes or a better way to put it would be that we need to take a "different direction"as a party or better yet return to the direction that this party was founded on. We need to return to our roots as the party for ALL THE PEOPLE and we need to do this by governing again.

We need to keep our values strong and we need to attract a younger base. We are not the strong the party of Conservatives that we once were. We are now considered the party of the extreme that is not willing to change. I have no issue with any one group of the party, but we really need to adjust our thinking to include everyone.

The days of the Grand OLD Party need to evolve into something that all of the people can agree with. I am not suggesting folks to give up there values, I am asking the leadership (especially the leadership in states that were defeated in) to step aside and allow the party to grow with new voices and different ides. Folks if we do not than we might as well fold up our tents and close up shop.

The clock is ticking we only have 2 years to fix the current problem and it needs to start now.

We must, as Republicans, become more with-it when it comes to capturing people's interest via the internet!! Obama was a master at this - we need very good community organizing to change our position within America. Michael Steele is a good start with the RNC, and Sarah Palin is another! We must learn how to market them to the rest of the world, and young people are the way to do this. So, let's get going all you young Republicans!!
