Advertising could easily pay for public transportation

The Web has two models for income
ads and subscriptions for services rendered There is no reason why all the economy cannot  operate just the same way Advertising could easily pay for public transportation  if cars were vastly reduced  and newly invented public conveyances  were operated by brands Starbucks, Burger King etc Businesses that operated new settlements  modeled on ships or malls or stadiums  could most certainly devise  new and inventive ways of generating income

A market plunge attributable to the stasis of the Speaker and Congress7. Pressure from Mitt Romney
You can guage the horrendous stasis that exists by concluding that not one of the seven notions above has the slightest possibility of coming to fruitionOur society is so deeply mired in the spellthat was cast when I overcame weand morality and ethics took a back seat to profit(thickening a wall of corruption that is still present) that the notion of the unprecedentedeludes usWe have lost our capacity to believe anything can…
