This Great Country of Ours: Fix U.S.
Many of us are faced with tough challenges. Life sets a good deal of obstacles in front of us regardless of our circumstance.
Many families are burdened with drug-abuse, suicide, and serious social impairments. Government and the community does little about the problem.
Many of our children were raised with corrupt social skills, low self-esteem, and a twisted sense of self-worth. Much of this has been caused by big business and horrible marketing campaigns targeting people's weaknesses.
The problems persist as we assume the I-Pad is a form of innovation. However, things like this just serve as a platform for profit, and will continue facilitating the steady decline of society.
I really believe that we need a switch here. We need a change in this country more than a vote can really facilitate. We need people to wake-up a little.
I think it's important to look at a few variables in our society. If we can command these...we may have a chance at changing things.
AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF HIGHER LEARNING
We should create a 2.5 billion dollar facility to house, teach, and build people from our communities.
We would create a facility that could house upwards of 5,000 people at a time. These citizens would go through a program allowing them to pick and choose a trade they enjoy.
The schooling would be free and a job is guaranteed so long as you follow applicable guidelines. The teachings should be hands-on and text based using dynamic teaching strategies...not a set of guidelines for every situation.
The funding is available for large-scale programs. We just don't try.
Creating programs like this will have massive benefits for our country. Education is key...we have to begin building our communities...we must focus on our people...they are what matters, and that's not just some hippie rant...it's a reality.
