Neither Party Understands the Economy

The economy will not recover  Because the car industry was saved The economy will not recover Because there is an uptick in housing purchases or construction The economy will not recover because either party now has the policies to lead it toward new prosperity Stasis and sclerosis will endure while both parties compound delay by arguing for mutually wrong premises You ask what is the right course Simply this Concede that the triumvirate of sprawl oil dominance and the related businesses  is anemic and a recipe for a century of sclerosis war and untold poverty Concede that a properly densified society with communities of around 10K Zoned for everything needed  to live Car free  Built on modular principles  with a shared-ecostructure Is the right track Concede that the correct approach is outlined here under the label cyber-community The future must be sprawl free Car free Face to face community Enabled by cyber-means That nobody who should have seen this saw it is cause for some skep…

Three Things about America Bother Me

How About I Rewrite this NYT First Paragraph?

Republican Committee Fund-Raising Has Big Turnaround - NYTimes.com: "Once teetering on the edge of bankruptcy and irrelevance, the Republican National Committee has raised more than $110 million over the past 15 months and retired more than half its debt, accumulating large cash reserves that could give Mitt Romney a critical boost later this spring as he intensifies his campaign against President Obama."

The paragraph above assumes, I suspect in a careless, knee-jerk way, that the RNC was irrelevant and now is what - relevant? How can you accumulate large cash reserves when you still owe half your debt? Below is my more accurate declension of the reality.
The Republican National Committee has followed the course of its presumptive nominee and veered enough to the right to open the pockets of  donors who are salivating at the prospect of ridding the nation of President Obama. The RNC has as a result come halfway back from bankruptcy.
