What Could Be Done With $30 Million

Original post made by R.Gordon on Aug 21, 2010

One of the reasons this country, and communities like the Peninsula are failing to make progress, is the way we spend indiscriminately on issues usually involving lawsuits, lawyers, more lawyers,slow acting government on every level, our OUT OF DATE love affair with the outdated parts of our Constitution and our own LAZINESS as a people.

If you want to see something remarkable, take the time to check out the following POWERPOINT SITE which I cannot make into a web link, but is simple to access:

TinanmanMountains.pps

It has NOTHING to do with Tiananmen Square but does show what can be accomplished by a productive society. I do not want to hear about comparisons in wages or I will mention the cost of living compared to ours. Also, the beauty is something we have to WORK at preserving while these people have pride. They are now the number one power and the U.S. is sinking faster. Now stop complaining about noise and become visionaries.No, I am not a Communist...perhaps a community est.

There are going to be posts saying that it is not the correct spelling, but Google will get you there and show you the many variations because of the Chinese language interpretation, which is complex if you speak any Chinese and try and translat.
Dan Calistrat is responsible for this AMAZING site which will make the most stodgy person think...
Now, take a look at it, and then at yourselves.

The best way to see this....BY THE WAY......it cost only 13 million U.S. dollars.......is full screen and if you have trouble, try DAN CALISTRAT on your search engine.
It is humbling.
