#7 #18 The best ♥
I wish street art could be a perfectly legal, encouraged thing here in North America. It makes people happy to see beautiful images when just going about their daily business. I love street art.
Me, too. Others don't think so, though. I wanted to do a book of graffiti in NYC. So beautiful.

Seattle has some cool "public art."
U.S. Corporate and U.S. Corporate Asset Repatriation.The following saentmett was written by:William P. BrownFounder of Re-Employ AmericaSpokane WAStatement of ReasonAlmost half of the unemployed people in America once worked in manufacturing. The loss of these jobs has been a great detriment to the United States economy, personal wealth and the funding of the United States government.ManufacturingFrom the early 1940s through the early 1990s, most durable and non-durable goods used and consumed by Americans were manufactured in the United States. Since January 1, 1994 – the first day of the North American Free Trade Act – the United States economy has been weakened by the wholesale loss of manufacturing and financial sector jobs to foreign countries. By midyear 2011, about 25% of nonfood consumer products were manufactured in the United States by medium and large U.S. corporations. Most if not all of these ex-patriot manufacturers where founded in the United States between 1900 and 1950. Some of these companies were founded as early as the late 1700s. During and after World War II the United States exported the largest portion of nonfood products throughout the world. All of these products were manufactured in the United States. By the year 2000, about half of the U.S. brands were being manufactured outside of the United States then imported into the United States tax and tariff free. No other country in the world relies so heavily on its own products being manufactured outside of its borders than the United States.EmploymentAs of April 2011, roughly 13.5 million Americans, or 9.1% of the labor force, have been left unemployed as a result of the lack of employment opportunities within the United States. As a result of the lack of employment opportunities, over half of those have been unemployed for a period of not less than 6 months. Most of those unemployed held jobs in the manufacturing sector of the American economy. Recent saentmetts by government and non-government organizations have implied and or predicted that the unemployment rate will not approach 5% of the labor force for another 10 to 15 years. Most Americans that worked in the manufacturing sector are now working in the service sector at 1/4 to 1/3 of their former wages without employer-sponsored benefits such as: healthcare, vacation and retirement programs. Underemployment exceeds unemployment at almost 12%.One manufacturing facility can directly support hundreds if not thousands of jobs. These positions include but are not limited to, production workers, facilities maintenance personnel, administrative staff, management and vehicle operators. Industries supported by manufacturing facilities include equipment manufacturers, chemical and chemical related product manufacturers, grocery stores, agricultural and livestock producers, transportation providers, construction workers and the financial sector. One facility with 200 direct employees will support just as many indirect job opportunities.EconomicsMost service sector jobs pay between the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour to $10 per hour. Most non-construction and non-agricultural manufacturing jobs pay between $20 an hour and up to $35 per hour. With these positions no longer in America, this is a loss of $26,000 to as much as $56,600 per person per year; for some households, this equates to $52,000 to $113,200 per year. With an average annual income of $71,000 per person per year and 13.5 million unemployed Americans, this is an approximate direct loss of $958.5 trillion put into the U.S. economy per year, or $79.875 trillion per month.Social Security’s Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) program is funded almost exclusively by working Americans and employers. The combined rate of Social Security taxes paid by employees and employers is 7.65%. The total potential direct loss of Social Security taxes paid is approximately $73,355,850,000 per year.The United States Congress, both the House and the Senate, is missing out on $134,956,800,000 (almost $135 billion) of personal income taxes per year – 13.5 million unemployed Americans x $71,000 average income x 14.08% effective tax rate – to which it needs to help balance federal budget, this does not include income taxes paid by employers or taxes paid by import tariffs.The total number of unemployed Americans at this time has put a financial strain on the federal budget because of the need for supplementary taxpayer-funded resources including: unemployment insurance not otherwise paid by employers or employees, U.S. Department of Agriculture food stamps subsidies, medical assistance, housing subsidies, household energy assistance and other social programs funded by federal tax dollars. These financial resources could be served better to strengthen our infrastructure, military, natural disaster funding, education and other critical assets needed to provide a safe, secure and healthy nation.Statistical data for this section was obtained on June 9, 2011, from the U.S. the Department of Labor, U.S. Census Bureau and the U.S. Social Security Administration.SummaryIt is imperative the United States Congress and the President set aside personal and party ideological positions and differences to secure the future economic stability of the people of the United States.We were once a nation of builders, engineers, innovators and inventors; now we depend on the kindness of other nations. The United States used to lead the world in absolutely everything – sciences, math, innovation, invention, education, economics and defense forces. Today, we are a follower behind economically developing countries.Absent the financial sector meltdown in 2007, the employment and economic stature of the United States was already in dire straits. Other nations and governments have prospered at the expense of the American worker and taxpayer. The loss of tax revenues resulting from high unemployment has forced the Congress and the President to reduce, and in some cases eliminate, funding for many of the things that made this a once great nation. U.S. companies that choose to stay within the United States and the employed middle-class have had to supplement U.S. tax revenues with increased taxes, higher cost of living, reduced income and sacrificing personal and business assets.U.S. Corporate and U.S. Corporate Asset Repatriation.A PROPOSED BILLTo strengthen the economy, reduce the unemployment rate and reduce the debt of the United States.Review the following proposed bill, collaborate with all members of the House of Representatives and the Senate, to have this presented to and enacted by the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate and presented to the President, no later than March 1, 2012, as law, it is not to start no later than January 1, 2013.Prior to deliberation, debate and vote by the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate, this proposed bill is to be submitted to: the Congressional Budget Office for a complete economic impact analysis, the United States Department of Labor and it’s subsidiary agencies for employment analysis, the United States Internal Revenue Service for tax analysis and other government or non-partisan non-government organizations for relevant analytical review.You are expected to edit this proposed bill, as necessary, in a manner to which it does not limit the time and or diminish, restrict or remove the structure, economic value or obligations of this bill, the United States Congress and the President to the people of the United States, the Bill of Rights or the United States Constitution.Constitutional authority:Preamble;
