FACT: The change necessary to insure an economic rebound in 3 to 5 years and its viability is to effect change in corporate America’s mind-set, which is what neither political party can do. We can AND we must OR we could deal with the perils of a new United Sates of America. Our economic predicament necessitates that we comply with what President John F. Kennedy said: “Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country”.

FACT: Albert Einstein is noted for saying, “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” We are ALL affected by what we DO or DON’T DO: no one escapes the consequences. Comparable to the Army Ants mentioned in the Wall Street bull obstacles would be overcome by cohesiveness and determination.

Our actions today or the lack of would have consequential effects on the successes of future generations. The following defines my objective for using a patent pending technology to start a company of which its “modus operandi” would demonstrate on a small-scale what would entail a Renaissance in Corporate America that could accomplish the following:

  • increase in profitability
  • create new jobs with job-security
  • effect an economic rebound with long-term viability
  • motivate students to excel to become world renown innovators

The company that I start would have the potential to gain recognition amongst web-based advertising companies. Thus, its modus operandi would be observed as it accomplishes the objectives noted, which could encourage public opinion to dictate the necessity of Renaissance in Corporate America.

Everyone has the potential to make contributions to the betterment of our country. Old ideas would be followed by better ideas, which would be followed by even better ideas. That is how the country became what it is . . . simple logic. Please see, YOU Are An INTELLIVENTOR, which would prove that your ingenuity is your leverage for economic viability.

“Old School” Policy

Employees in corporate America have often been reluctant to disclose ideas for inventions to their employers. The foremost reason is that corporations usually require employees to sign waivers whereby the rights to work related inventions go to the employer, which is understandable.

The contempt an employee has for an employer often stems from feeling unjustly treated when he/she submits an idea that makes $millions for the company and he/she is only paid a one-time relatively small bonus or receives a slight increase in annual wages. Consequently, many innovators have kept their ideas secret, found means of circumventing their employers to bring them to market, and terminated their employment when the inventions generated revenues that replaced their wages.

An Equitable Modus Operandi

The new dot-com company is on the horizon.  Its employees would be assured that they are appreciated by their salaries and benefits. As the company grows, the objective would be to invest 30% – 50% of its profits in a program that would encourage people to be innovators. The company’s CPA’s and attorneys would oversee investment strategies to insure that its viability isn’t threatened.

Employees would not be fearful of having to forfeit intellectual properties to the company. If an idea is related to improving the technology and is used, the employee would be paid annual bonuses throughout his/her tenure. The employee could possibly be placed in a position to see the progression of her/his innovation.

If an invention is unrelated to the dot-com company, an employee would be asked to offer it the first right of refusal. If the company decides to underwrite the project, the employee would be provided the funds to secure an attorney of her/his choosing to advise her/him on working with the company. A similar offer would be extended to innovators not employed by the company.

If the invention is determined to have market potential, the company would negotiate for 33% ownership. If the innovator accepts, the company would contribute to underwriting the patent, manufacturing, and marketing. Given an inventor’s qualifications or willingness to qualify the company may propose setting up a new enterprise and grooming her/him to be its CEO over a three-year period.

Given that the world is generally computerized it is conceivable that the dot-com company could underwrite and monitor the process of bringing more than 100 inventions to profitability. If the additional income averaged $1-million annually, the dot-com company would have an additional $100-million profit yearly. More than 50% of the profits from such enterprises would be invested in the program.

The remaining 50% would be deposited in a contingency fund and reserved for the employees should a decline in the company’s main line of business occurs. The company would contribute to the fund until it equals the sum of the personnel’s straight time wages for three years.

Should a reduction in personnel become necessary, terminated employees that had satisfactory and above annual reviews could receive amounts equivalent to what their weekly straight time wages were. This would continue for up to three years unless they find new employment sooner or while they are enrolled in school for that time to qualify for other vocations. This would ease the transition from one profession to another without menacing the quality of life for individuals (and their families) that gave their best to the company.

The plan would provide for job security to never become a stress factor, which could produce anxieties that may compromise ones health and efficiency. Individuals knowing that their employer is truly concerned about their well-being would be totally committed to maximizing the company’s potential for success.

Incentives for Students & Non-employees to Be Creative

The program would extend to public schools, trade schools, and universities to motivate students to excel and become world renowned innovators and enterprisers. They would be encouraged to submit ideas for inventions and paid royalties on those that enter the marketplaces. The conditions would be that students MUST remain in school and maintain a minimum 2.5 grade-averages, good attendance, appropriate conduct, and graduate.

The royalties students receive from their intellectual properties would start at 10% and be based on the grade-point averages: 2.5 = 10%, 3.0 = 11%, 3.5 = 12% and 4.0 = 13%. To further motivate students to achieve their highest potential, 3% would be added annually for seven years if the student continues to graduation and receives a diploma.

The stipulation would be that student’s royalty funds would be held in a “Trust”. Given that NO student needs a luxury car to ride to school her/his tuition and resident would be paid and he/she would receive suitable allowances monthly until the time of graduation. After receiving the diploma, the graduate could now assume control of the business created by the invention. However, the business would be under the umbrella of the dot-com company until it receives $1-million annually from its 33% ownership.

The language of the stipulation would specify that if the student does not graduate for other than medical reasons, he/she would loose the Trust and the company would have full ownership of the invention. He/She would be paid only a 10% dividend retroactive to the date the invention became profitable. The payments would continue for seven years. He/She would be required to have a “Will” on file with language that enforces the stipulation. These terms would not be negotiable in order to motivate students to be achievers.

A similar program would be offered to individuals that are not employee by the dot-company or students. The requirements for “Wills” would apply to them also.

If an inventor is a retiree, he/she would be paid a negotiated dividend annually. In addition to that and if so desired, the retiree would be provided an office so that he/she could participate in the work process of the invention on a flexible work schedule. This would keep the retiree’s mind sharp, which would contribute to extending her/his productive years. More importantly, retirees could pass-on words of wisdom about life in general to younger people . . . if they would listen.

Strategically Empowering Local Communities

Given that churches typically have longevity in communities and that some pastors are true humanitarians some churches strategically located could become resource centers for their communities. (Most assuredly there would be absolutely NO REQUIREMENTS for any beneficiary to be affiliated with a particular church.) Funds would be donated to implement the following key items to empower local communities socioculturally, intellectually, and economically:

  1. tutoring for neighborhood students

  2. mentoring program for pre-teens and adolescents

  3. free day care for children of single parents or dysfunctional families (The environment would be structured to prepare the children to be the next generation of productive adult citizens.)

  4. indoor/outdoor recreational facilities for pre-teens and adolescents (Refreshments and light lunches would be served daily with weekly motivational presentations.)

  5. educational field trips with neighborhood parents as chaperons (to expose children to professions in action in order to stimulate their thinking about what vocations to pursue)

  6. weekly seminars (career planning for students, family business development, patents and trademarks, managing finances, estate planning, and etc.)

  7. host “town meetings” (with refreshments and wholesome snacks) for the communities to know their elected officials and voice neighborhood concerns

Decreasing the Indigent Population

Indigent people come from every economic level of our society. Several are extraordinarily talented and have genius IQ’s. Some were professionals and corporate executives. Whatever their histories, something broke their spirits and they lost hope.

One such person may hold the key to the next medical or technological breakthrough. One may be the next great inventor. Right now they must be assured that their past does not have to control the present neither dictate the future.

One idea would be for the company to establish a non-profit entity that would purchase vacant houses in need of repair. At least seven men would reside in each property and have FREE room and board. They would have their individual spaces for privacy. The rules of conduct would be stricter than a military boot camp.

Licensed carpenters, electricians, and plumbers would be employed to teach them to make repairs to prepare the properties for market. The revenue from each sale would pay only an allowance to each man and the greater portion would go into trusts.

The program would require the group to move to other properties and repeat the process. The revenue from the sale of the 7th house would pay minimum wages. After an additional three houses have been sold, the men could be paid wages sufficient for each one to purchase a house. They would be required to continue with the program in order to pay for their purchases or face foreclosures and evictions. Alternately, one may be motivated to resume practicing his profession.

The process would have taught the men skilled trades and teamwork skills. They would be encouraged to form their own corporation and continue their new roads to prosperity.

Women would be offered programs that provide FREE room and board if they attend classes for developing skills to qualify for employment or becoming entrepreneurs. Details would be worked out by the aid of social workers and services they recommend.

The “Big Picture”

The ideology could prove to corporate America that discontinuing the practices of sacrificing PEOPLE for PROFIT could increase profitability. Corporate America would see the result of dispelling the perceptions of greed whereby employees perceive themselves as being nothing more than mere numbers. Corporations could be convinced that the genii for their successes and economic rebounds are in the souls of their employees and also people not in their employments.

The accomplishments of individuals who become successful and the intellectual contribution they make to their employers and humanity would be unprecedented. It could convince corporations that imitating the practice could mean substantial additional revenues. Thus, corporate America’s mind-set would have changed. The change could spread globally.

The prosperity of a company operating in this fashion would be comparable to the powerful current of a mighty river into which numerous tributaries flow. Its diversified income could sustain it should its main line of business declines. As Albert Einstein said, “. . . It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.”

Conclusion

The success that the ideology brings the dot-com company could influence stockholders in corporate America. Investors could be persuaded to vote for their respective companies to imitate the dot-com: thus, encouraging the renaissance. It could cause a domino affect in which proprietors of private companies could even be persuaded to also imitate the dot-com on smaller scales. Thus, the affect that the dot-com company could have on corporate America could parallel the novel/movie, “The Power of One”. It could happen in five years or less.

Corporate America cannot afford to continue business as usual. As Albert Einstein said, “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” In order for the United States to regain economic stability, it must take heed to the words of the late Martin Luther King, Jr.: “Philanthropy is commendable, but it must not cause the philanthropist to overlook the circumstances of economic injustice which make philanthropy necessary.”

Whereas the reputation of the United States as a superpower has been attributed mostly to its military strength, its intellectual contributions to the world and the prosperity of its citizens would become factors. The renaissance could effect multiple long-term benefits for American citizens:

  1. increase in employment

  2. job security & annual bonuses/raises

  3. decline in the student drop out rate

  4. students excelling in education

  5. funds for college grads to payoff student loans

  6. capital for college grads to become entrepreneurs

  7. decrease in citizens dependency on government aid

  8. decrease of the indigent population

  9. additional profit for corporations

  10. adverting the predicted social security crisis

By God’s Grace, we CAN make it happen! “Renaissance in Corporate America” would exemplify the words of the late President John F. Kennedy: “With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God’s work must truly be our own.”

Two miraculous experiences cause me to believe that God is honoring my vow to effect the Renaissance in Corporate America. They convince me that I will acquire the finances to underwrite the startup without relying on investors that are too often driven by greed and could consequently impede effecting Renaissance in Corporate America. I’m committed!

 

lever + fulcrum = leverage

The 2008 economic tailspin continues to have lasting effects on the middle class especially. Too often employees are carrying the work loads of two or three former employees. Too many college grads have to accept employment that does not necessitate them utilizing the studies they pursued in school. There are still too many unemployed professionals, skilled labors, and college grads. I am committed to contributing to a CHANGE.

A Greek mathematician, physicist, engineer, inventor, and astronomer, Archimedes (287 BC – 212 BC), is noted for a popular quote: “Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.” In this scenario, the three aspects of the cartoon above would be applicable as follows:

  • LOAD: Renaissance in Corporate America
  • FULCRUM: a dot-com company
  • EFFORT: Acquiring the start-up cost to execute the modus operandi defined in Renaissance in Corporate America

The new dot-com company would market a simple patent pending technology that could excel the capabilities of keyword dependant advertising mediums. The technology would circumvent the #1 problem of keyword searches displaying numerous pages of results. More specifically, whereas listings beyond their first pages have diminishing potential for visibility and too often no visibility, businesses would be assured of the highest potential for visibility regardless to where they rank numerically in the results.

A second patent application would be submitted upon completion of the revenue-generating beta version of the patent pending technology. Simplicity would preclude it from being imitated by competitors.  Therefore, it could be licensed to some.

The potential market would be the 95% of the country’s local businesses that do not advertise on the Internet. (Please refer to the highlighted headings in About Me for what initiated the idea, the potential market, and its aspects.) Given what the technology brings to the Internet and the size of its market the dot-com company has the potential for substantial growth. It’s modus operandi could conceivably be effective enough to leverage Renaissance in Corporate America. The name of the dot-com company would be published when the beta version of the technology is operable.

It is conceivable that it would begin preparation for an IPO in three to five years. My business associates in other entrepreneurial ventures would be the first to receive announcements of the plans for the IPO should they like to keep abreast of new ones. They would be asked to notify their associates and encourage them to notify theirs and so on. The reason is that they too may want to be aware of new IPO’s regardless to their markets.

I see America in the future and it looks much better than it does right now. Two experiences that I believe to be miraculous convince me that Divine intervention is overseeing my efforts to contribute something to bring the renaissance to fruition for the good of the people and not selfish ego. I believe that others that truly want to make a difference would have comparable experiences.

 

The six videos below comprise the [approximately 1-hour] movie, “Inside The Meltdown”, which depicts the progression of the economic meltdown.  It discloses that blatant lies told by corporate executives on Wall Street precipitated long-term global economic consequences.

The meltdown has perpetuated fear amongst the working-class: receptionists to executives and entrepreneurs. Unemployment soared for which we know the consequential effects, especially with the real estate market and the automobile industry. Job security and hopes of financially secured retirements have virtually become dreams of the past.  Employment is reportedly on the increase in 2012.

A cliche says something to the affect that 5% of the people make things happen, 10% of the people watch things happen, and 85% of the people wonder what happened.  Corporate America’s statisticians know that this is basically true.  Corporate America also knows that it is loaded with employees that would rather complain than be innovative and therefore feels no immediate threats from them.

What corporate America is perpetrating on its employees would diminish their long-term economic viability. For example, November 20, 2010 New York Times reports that profit making companies have begun adopting the unfair two-tier wage system: new hires being paid about 50% of veteran workers’ wages. It’s evidence of profit at the expenses of employees.

Companies given to this injustice would likely contrive ways of keeping new employees at lower wages indefinitely. They are also likely to devise ways to systematically reduce the wages of veteran employees: profit at the expenses of employees again.

If the two-tier system becomes widespread, workers would have 50% less wages to survive an ever escalating cost of living and virtually nothing to save toward retirement years. It would ultimately eradicate the middle class. To verify the increase in companies adopting and contemplating the two-tier system, Google  the following phrase: two tier wage system 2012.

Consider that the following general expenses would be equal for both new hires and veteran workers alike:

  1. mortgage/rent (property taxes and utilities)
  2. automobile (payment, fuel, and maintenance)
  3. insurances (health, property, and automobile)

Escalating Cost-of-livingCorporations are making future plans based on the statistics for life expectancy and retirement ages of veteran workers. When they are gone and the lower wages remain in effect the ever-escalating cost-of-living could ultimately dictate for two or more employees (and their families) to equally share the same residence, vehicle, and associated expenses.

The video below is depicts a growing concept for sharing automobiles. Regardless to how environmentally friendly it’s reported to be, the considerations for others, and etc., the bottom line is the that it’s profitable for the car owners. Sharing cars reduces the expenses for ownership:

The following video is reflective of the old concept of “roomers”. A roomer is one to whom a homeowner rents a room in her/his house, usually by the month. Roomer usually share bathrooms and kitchens but pay no utilities, just flat rates for rooms. However, they would pay extra if  homeowners provide meals.

It is conceivable that the volatility of our economy could necessitate the resurgence of the concept here, in the United States. Note the story of how necessities caused two guys to turn the concept into a global business under a different name, “Air BnB”:

YouTube Preview Image

Sharing automobiles are conveniences to the renters. However, residences are essentials to roomers because being homeless is their alternatives.

The aforementioned two-tier wage system could force the concept of roomers. Their savings could offset the ever increasing essential cost-of-living expenses per individual or family:

  1. groceries
  2. medical
  3. tuition
  4. apparel
  5. occasional entertainment/recreation

A threat to the middle class was published in the New York Times June 11, 2011: “Getting by Without the Middle Class“. It details how the emerging middle-class in foreign countries could virtually destroy the middle-class here. It could conceivably happen over the next five years and make the aforementioned sharings everyday realities.

The Wall Street Journal published an article on February 16, 2012 about General Motors: “General Motors Co. is freezing the pay of its 26,000 U.S. salaried employees and will eliminate its traditional pension contribution for those salaried workers who still receive them in moves to reduce financial risks and cut costs, which is a top concern among investors.

The new pension system, which goes into effect October 1, applies to workers hired before 2001. They will keep their existing pensions, but future retirement contributions will be made into a 401(k) plan. Around 7,000 workers hired after 2001 already receive retirement contributions though a 401(k) plan.”

What the article did not mention is that GM’s employees hired since 2001 do not have retirement plans. Their options are 401(k’s). What GM has done is an example of maneuvers companies make to cut costs without respect to the negative impact on its employees and then interpret the savings as profits.

The Prudential Insurance Company announced on June 2, 2012, that “Prudential signs pension transfer agreement with General Motors Co.” Retirees speculate that the amounts of their retirement checks would ultimately be less. However, the point is that General Motors would do what it deems necessary to boost its financial rating.  Only time will tell if this strategy inflicts negative consequences on retirees.

The continuing development of such scenarios and the accumulative results proves the inevitability of the birth to a new United States of America. It would have NO middle class because the two-tier wage system would ultimately become a single low paying system to which corporate America would contribute nothing to retirement funds.

Job security is virtually a thing of the past. Retirements are being deferred to the age 70.

The 2012 presidential candidates claim that they will bring jobs. However, the reality is that ONLY corporate America could create jobs. Given the low wages corporations pay in foreign countries they would have to accept lower profits to pay higher wages here, which the greater probability is that they will not.

The United States is a democracy. Consequently, neither the Democratic nor the Republican parties could impose nothing on corporate America to create jobs. Furthermore, the dissidence between the two major parties would impede the progress of any good economic policies that either one proposes. The “CHANGE” required to insure an economic rebound and its viability is to change corporate America’s mind-set. (Please see Renaissance in Corporate America.)

To total darknessThe country is ours. We have no option but to be convinced of our own individual God given abilities and maximize our potential severally and jointly. But, if we don’t and lay back and wait for camaraderie between political parties to cause them to stop criticizing each other and to truly focus on the needs of the people, total darkness will be our plight.

Each of us is an INTELLIVENTOR and therefore has the potential to develop a product/service and start a business to market it as described in YOU Are An INTELLIVENTOR, which could prove that YOU are the key to your destiny. However, businesses must have a modus operandi by which contributions would be made to our educational and economic rebounds.

Let’s make our country better by incorporating back to basics into this high-tech era. Present and future generations depend on it. Otherwise, a new United States of America is inevitable and it DOES NOT look good.

Given the disappearance of 401k’s resulting from the 2008 economic meltdown corporate America’s employees MUST have working PLAN-B’s that would have much greater returns than 401k’s could yield. The losses are harsh realities for what could happen to individuals nearing retirement ages and depend on volatile 401k’s.

The fact is that they don’t have the time to rebuild their finances with contributions from wages and therefore could face bleak futures financially. However, the GOOD NEWS is that by virtue of being an INTELLIVENTOR it’s not too late for one to prepare for her/his financially secured retirement now even if he/she is a already a retiree.

When we want to insure our personal possessions we look for a company that has the highest performance record for reliability. This gives us measured of confidence with the companies we choose. It is also coincides what the historical statesman, William Penn once said, “I know no way of judging the future but by the past.”

The defining question is where do you see yourself economically in the next five years or at retirement age? Factor into your projections what the famed scientist, Albert Einstein is noted for saying, “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

 

banana

A defining moment

One ordinary day at home I decided to have a banana for a snack. Peeling it sparked an epiphany about life that made me a better person. It was a comparison of me to the simplicity of peeling the banana, which was no different to what virtually all of us do. I have a daily awareness now without concentrating on the experience.

I would like to think that when success comes from the patent pending technology’s performance in commerce it wouldn’t change my persona; I don’t know. But, having the broader perspective on life, I feel confident that I won’t change. It’s also because I want my legacy to testify of my contribution to the United States especially being a better place at my death than it was at my birth. (Ref: Renaissance in Corporate America.)

Needless to say, virtually every time I even pick up a banana it triggers the memory of that experience. I would like to share it with you. If it affects you to any degree, seeing or peeling a banana is likely to be a reminder of what life really is and is not.

The lesson

A banana is recognized by its hull. The quality of the fruit is judged by its appearance: not ripe enough, just right, too ripe, or beginning to decay.

If the banana falls to the ground, the hull would shield the meat from collecting dirt particles that would make it uneatable. The hull also protects the meat from the air, which would cause it to turn brown.

Your hull would consist of your assets, profession, social status, and education. Just as a banana is judged by its hull, you are judged by your’s.

You should not feel over confident by what comprises your hull. It CANNOT stop accidents, diseases, or bad circumstances, neither can it guarantee fulfillment.

Peeled banana

The news media occasionally gives heartbreaking reports of celebrities facing dire circumstances and/or suffering from illnesses that prove to be terminal. But, nothing that defines them can help.

Just as it happens to them it could happen to you and me. It’s that one second [00:00:01] in a day that could instantly turn our lives in completely different directions. It could peel away our hulls quicker than we peel bananas. What remains would be the “The real YOU/ME”: fragile and virtually helpless; no control over situations.

That would prove that life truly DOES NOT consist only of the abundance of things that one possesses. It would also prove what a person truly is in comparison to the perception that her/his hull gives others: nothing more than a mere person that like everyone else experiences life’s vicissitudes, ages, die, and decays.

You undoubtedly have insurances on your personal possessions to protect yourself against financial loss incase of fire, accident, theft, vandalism, and natural disasters. You likely have health insurances so that you incur no financial losses from the cost of doctor visits, hospital bills, prescriptions, and other cost for health care. If you have a family, you would have life insurances to guarantee their financial security after your demises.

Paying the monthly premiums is what guarantees the coverage specified in policies. Making the payments may require making some sacrifices: fewer new clothes, less dining out, smaller house and car, and etc.  Whatever sacrifices necessary to have the monthly payments you make willingly because of the returns.

The question is, what assurance would you have for making the right decision when facing crucial issues, such as deciding on the treatment for a potentially terminal medical diagnosis, handling personal conflicts, dealing with family crisis, critical business matters, and etc? Such instances are when it’s not uncommon to hear people refer to dependency on higher powers for guidance.

Virtually all of us have to navigate matters that are to big for us to handle alone. They may be relative to personal issues, a spouse, children, parent, or friend. As for me, the basis of my conviction for navigating life is defined in Scientific Reasoning: the Catalyst for Evidence.

The reality check

The experience reminded me of a poem I heard a few years ago: “The Dash Poem”. The author, Linda Ellis, recites it on YouTube:

YouTube Preview Image

My dash must be comprised of more than me making money. Otherwise, I would personify the cliche by the unknown who said, “he who lives to make money dies poorly”: just a “blip” in time with no memorial for having lived.

Amongst the content of my dash are living out my Spiritual convictions, having success (as defined by Ralph Waldo Emerson), and pursuing my object for Renaissance in Corporate America.

 

The Wall Street Bull

The Wall Street bull must be brought down!  Otherwise, the trampling from its constant rampage will harm us even more.  Namely, we will continue to be victimized by corporate America’s unfair practices of putting profit before people: downsizing to translate the savings into profits, the two tier wage-system, the systematic eradication of the middle-class, outsourcing, forcing fewer employees to do double their workloads, and etc.  Our hope is that we, jointly and severally, possess the God-given intellect to stop the bull: change corporate America’s mind-set.

army antA species of ant in Africa known as the “driver ants”, sometimes referred to as “army ants”, could be used to make a strong point. These vicious creatures have been known to kill tarantulas, lizards, birds, snakes, and pigs. Usually larger animals can get away from the oncoming ant army, but if they are caught off guard or sleeping, these could become eatables for the hungry armies.

Google Books states some facts about army ants.  On page 17, “Ants cannot swim, and they are so small that the slightest current can carry them away.  These problems do not stop them from crossing streams and rivers.  Soldiers and works can use their bodies to make a “living bridge” across a small stream.  For larger stretches of water, the ants link their bodies to make “living rafts” that can float the colony across.”  

Another amazing fact from Google Books (pg 29) is “that army ants have been known to kill and eat animals as large as horses”.  A single ant is less that 1/millionth the size of a horse and therefore no threat to it.

The point is that comparable to one ant, one person would be insignificant relative to what he/she can do to deter the bull on Wall Street: the cause of the USA’s economic situation. But, by networking, we would be a force to be reckoned with: the matador that could stop the bull.

Consider this. There has not been a war within the contiguous United States since the American Civil War (1861-1865). Since that time Americans have never experienced casualties of war and fears as people in war-torn countries have and do because of enemy-nations.

All we have known is “freedom”, which reflects in our attitudes. We have consequently become so used to the word that we just assume that we will do whatever we want to do (within the boundaries of the law) regardless to the opinions of others. Consequently, virtually all of us have at times used the phrase, “no body’s going to tell me what to do”, and often with a degree of arrogance whether it was realized or not.  If we didn’t say it, we proved it by our actions, which speak louder than words.

Corporate America is using such mind-sets as leverage against us without us realizing the consequential effects. One example would be the automobile industry’s outsourcing the manufacturing of cars to foreign countries and importing them to the USA for us to purchase.

Corporate executives obviously give no consideration to the fact that the people that lost jobs to the domino effects of outsourcing do not have the money to buy the imports. The execs play on the psychology of self-centered freedom-minded people who are not paying attention to the big picture: the consequential long-term effects on our economy.

The buyers don’t consider that purchasing imports encourages outsourcing, which contributes to their unemployment, that of their family members, friends, acquaintances and others.  For examples, many of the unemployed were from American suppliers to the car companies and other auto-related companies that closed because of outsourcing.

Individually, it is impossible to affect the decision making of corporate America. But, collectively, we could if we would have a cohesive mind-set like Army ants that bring down big animals that weigh more than a battalion of ants. Namely, we could simply refuse to buy cars that are not manufactured in the United States. Our actions would tell the manufacturers to sell the cars where they were made.

It is a fact that some foreign manufactured cars are cheaper and others are more expensive and even look better than domestic companies’ products. But, the sacrifice we make today to buy cars and other products manufactured here could be the price that we pay for job security today and for succeeding generations. Otherwise, our “freedom” could boomerang and devastate us even more economically with a much worse domino effect on succeeding generations. It’s back to the quote from Einstein, “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”.

We don’t need to organize a movement. It would be up to individuals to make personal decisions about personal feelings for the succeeding generations and our country.

Think about it! . . . if tenacity and cohesiveness enables army ants to bring down a horse, we could exhibit the same characteristics and bring down the Wall Street bull in three to five years, i.e. change Wall Street’s mind-set.

My personal plan is to use the patent pending invention to contribute to the cause as detailed in Renaissance in Corporate America.

I would presume to say that you also have an idea for an invention that for whatever reason(s) you didn’t pursue. But, now you should. Its success in commerce could enable you to escape being subjected to corporate America’s unfair practices and conceivably start a new business. Please see About You.

Made in America Lastly, the state of our economy necessitates that we go promote “Made in America”. Our future depends on it. Not doing so would contribute to the Inevitability of A New USA.
