#Google+ @google #tech #startups #business

Large tech companies try to think outside the box and end up only creating another box. This new one for a few years is productive and innovative to a point then its just a box again. They forget that they were once the basement guy the dreamers and fringe in their fields.

They forget they didn’t learn it in class or internship they learned it in the basement of parents or the apartment with only a dollar and a dream. They forget that mindset. This happens to all successful companies for profit and not for profit, how we fix this is not just challenging staff and being creative its also going back to the basements of the world finding talent there! Its looking at other fields and not being afraid to fail again, after all it teaches us!

Corporate subsides and large company tax loopholes dont help anyone but large companies! They don’t help the middle class or small business in fact they make the taxes for the middle class and small business go up… We dont live in a progressive or liberal country we live in a county that since the late 1980 has done nothing but destroy our middle class and blue color workers!

Cutting taxes and deregulation for top 1% and corporations under ALL presidents since Regan has destroyed our country. Yes some were worse then others but they all contributed to helping wall street and not main street….

Just look at the economic numbers and tax rates! We need to raise the min wage, cut taxes for middle class, Start ups and small businesses! We need to raise taxes on millionaires and 1% to 1950s rates! Change and fix our broken education systems allowing for civics classes, economics classes, entrepreneurship learning, tech classes, programming/coding classes and how we get technical degrees!
