I've been thinking. How can we get out of this recession? After about 3 days, it hit me. Build something really big. Now, it seems like a stupid thought but let me explain. During The Great Depression, to get the US economy up and running again and to employ millions of people, we built highways and dams which in turn gave millions of Americans much needed jobs. Now, what if we did this again? Would it work? Here's my plan. We start building wind and solar farms. Why? It's going to create lots of jobs. We can't send the jobs overseas because they have to be built on our own soil. It's going to solve our dependancy on forign oil. It's going to make America a cleaner, more environmentally friendly place to live. If we do this, it's going to kill two birds with one stone. The first "bird" being employing out-of-work Americans and the second "bird" being it's going to cure our addiction to oil. Now, I don't know the whole political side behind doing something this huge so feel free to help me out. Whatever you do, do NOT shoot this idea down. Add to this idea and make it better. So, what do you think?
