The economy will prosper when we understand that people want basic change that reflects new realities

The economy will prosper when we understand that people want 
basic change that reflects new realities
Current housing is retro and tied to the domination of the car
over every element of design 
Developing technology enables a quantum leap 
beyond the construction that created sprawl 
We want our communities to reflect the diversity
we have come to value in our society
We want housing that is flexible
rather than a premade cookie-cutter
We want and could easily have
communities with all the amenities of a city
within walking distance
The recovery of our economy is intimately related
to a growing will to create integral communities
where one can walk to everything 
because everything is within a mile 
The political risks of this approach are small because
people can initiate the creation of these
The goal will be denser communities
that are both safe and walkable
with squares and kiosks and places to sit
Communities large enough to create local economies
Communities freed of automobile traffic within
their borders
New design technologies
Architects will not design individual houses
but whole living and working and recreational areas
Zoning will be turned inside out
Our new frontier is face to face community everywhere
The nattering about unemployment begs the question
This is the vision
This is the answer

Funny MSNBC misses the purpose of Obama's speech which is to remind us that we are the power that needs to be exercised.
Grover Norquist - We want the Paul Ryan budget. ... We just need a president to sign this stuff. 
"Romney-Ryan can only win by lies unlimited money and voter suppression" 
"The only chance Romney has is the one he has always had - trying to win with a wall of bullying attack ads" 
Obama restored hope. The future really is with us. Particularly the young whose vision will create a world past today's injustices.
The whole world is caught in the same bind - oil, cars, sprawl=destruction - Obama is a bridge to a better vision of things.
The Romney Ryan lie machine - A Quatrain | ShortFormContent at Blogger 
Barack Obama is hardly disdainful of success. He celebrates it and enables it. Romney seems more the "If I win, you lose" type.
Obama is not government-centered. He is not for growing the military and legislating morality. That would be Mitt Romney.
Obama goal is not redistribution. It's greater wealth for all. Compare Bush & Clinton records. Romney is the redistributionist.
Obama's 4+ million private sector jobs record makes Romney's entire record look like what it is - a tissue of mostly hidden lies.
The work and job creation of the future awaits a Congress capable of governing. We need to create one.
For every obvious Romney lie, four independents reject his candidacy.
What did not work was the GOP Congress which conspired 1/20/09 to reject its Constitutional responsibility to block Obama completely.
Romney's hidden records reveal a history of obliviousness to the fate of the employed under the lash of vulture capitalism.
Unemployment may be a Romney bully weapon but for Obama it is a summons to create an economy that works for all.
If he can get a good turnout from his base, he’ll be the heavy favorite to win in November — even if Mr. Romney gets… 
I can see the GOP strategy - they will simply accuse Obama of saying the exact opposite of what he says.
Obama - "No American should ever have to spend their golden years at the mercy of insurance companies." 
Obama Goal - "Use the money we're no longer spending on war to pay down our debt and put more people back to work"
Obama Goal - Help 2 million workers learn skills at their community college that will lead directly to a job 
Obama Goal - Recruit a 100,000 math and science teachers within 10 years and improve early childhood education. 
Obama Goal - "We can cut our oil imports in half by 2020 and support more than 600,000 new jobs in natural gas alone."
Obama - "Not every problem can be remedied with another government program or dictate from Washington." 
Obama - "I don't believe that firing teachers or kicking students off financial aid will grow the economy " 
"Feel a cold coming on? Take two tax cuts, roll back some regulations, and call us in the morning."

RT : This list of Koch Brothers' Products is our pollution-prone economy in a nutshell. 
It will take days to realize the degree of care that went into the President's speech and get the nuances which reveal its brilliance.
Thank you John Kerry for flagging Mitt's most onerous sentence. Mitt serves the Kochs and could care less about the environment.
So far I've not heard mention of the GOP 1/20/09 dinner when GOP brass decided to do in Obama. I have hopes that Biden…
Let the grass roots out raise Romney and Ryan this month. Contribute to suppress the GOP! 
Obama will get a bounce. Romney didn't. Obama will outline a program. Romney didn't. Obama will win. Romney won't.
Colbert and Stewart have ammo for months dealing with Romney the Liar and Ryan the Phony.
Romney exudes crap whenever he opens his mouth. Waivers? To help states improve on welfare reform. Disgusting.
People are forgetting that the GOP kept millions unemployed by standing against public works spending and Obama jobs bills. Pathetic.
Rep. Pete Sessions should be defeated. He plotted with other GOP turncoats to block Obama at every turn the night he was inaugurated.
Correction - All Koch Industries products plus why Koch Brothers are number ten worst polluters in the US? 
Dems overconfident? Not a chance. Not when a twirp who lies and says nothing has a record of bullying his way to what he does not deserve.
RT : Did President Obama play rope-a-dope for three years? The answer is he had to to corner the treasonous and cowardly GOP.
We are better off than ever now because more and more are waking up to the problem - it is called the criminal GOP 
Barack Obama now has three in four chance of winning according to the best prognosticator Nate Silver 
Learning in the process of living is the deepest form of freedom.
September 2000, a federal grand jury in Corpus Christi, Texas returned a 97-count indictment against Koch Industries Inc.
Koch Products - or how did the brothers become the nnumber ten polluter in the USA? 
The first thing Ann Coulter does when she gets up is think of another snarky lie to tweet.
Yes we are a republic but democracy animates it. That's why we have a Bill of Rights and the power to amend the Constitution.

The GOP betrayed Constitutional democracy which requires negotiation and compromise. They will be penalized. at the polls.
The 1/20/09 GOP Block Obama Conspiracy is absolutely integral to any honest narrative of the last four years. 
 Please explain your cop impersonations, release your taxes, stop lying and renounce Ryan and other 1/20/12 GOP conspirators
Moral criminals practice intolerance and unhelpfiulness and defy democracy. This is the core of all ethics.

Koch, Adelson, Luntz, Norquist, Rove et al, are behind the same eight ball McCain was behind four years ago 
Tonight Bill Clinton reduces Ryan Romney to pants-on-fire ashes debunking welfare lies economy lies prosperity lies. Don't miss it!
