Public Cable Television and Internet Service Provider Alternative Option

Similar to the administration's recent suggestion to offer to anyone who wants it a public health care carrier alternative to private health care companies, I'd like the government to offer public alternatives to a number of industries. In this case, the government could offer a public alternative to the private cable/satellite television and internet service provider companies. Piggybacking at cost to existing cable ...more »

Single Payer Health Care Truth

First we have to define why any insurance system works. It is because many people pay into it. When you need it (hopefully not at the same time) you draw your benefits. In a health system some may never need more than their yearly physical, etc. Republicans forget this definition of insurance. They say it will be too expensive. Yes that is true since they only include the poor, cheap labor, immigrants, etc. (including ...more »

World of Warcraft Psychiatrists

An avatar for spotting dangerous personalities. This idea is for a set of computerized avatars to be sent into some of the more violent online games in search of gamers who fit the profile of someone who might lose track of the distinction between the game world and the real world and go out on a shooting spree like some young people have done recently. When one of these personalities was found they'd be flagged in ...more »

Self-Changing Lightbulbs

Since the government has already accepted the principle that it's okay to take an ownership stake in companies for the common good (GM, the banks, etc...) it should take a stake in companies where, with a little support, new products could be brought to market, giving the government a share of the profits to help pay down the debt. Buying a stake in a lightbulb manufacturing company and helping it develop the self-changing ...more »

Mixed Martial Arts Rugby

When in Rome do as the Romans did... In this case the idea would be to create a public-private partnership that promoted the sport of Mixed Martial Arts Rugby and split the profits evenly, the private side using its profits for whatever it wanted to and the public side using its profits to pay down the debt. The sport itself would combine the basic rules of rugby with the more primitive rules of mixed martial ...more »

The Real Answer Lies in Government Takeover of ALL businesses!

Due to the extreme and obscene (so-called) profits of the oil companies, if President Osama would just take over all profitable private businesses and apply it to mis-managed banking, mis-managed govenment and mis-managed auto companies and share the wealth of these profitable and well managed companies, I'm quite sure that he will completely destroy not only America's wealth, he will destroy America as we know it. But ...more »

Government Run Health Care

The other day in Wisconsin Obama said "with gov't run health care you will be able to keep your own doctor and your own insurance" What he didn't tell you is that in order to control costs there will be a bureaucracy in Washington telling your doctor what he can do and what he can't do in treating you. He also didn't tell you that the government will have to ration health care (espcially for the elderly) and accessibility ...more »

Government Run Health Care

Obama's usual manipulative tactic is to "placate" people first by addressing what he thinks their fears are and then by doing whatever he wants behind the scenes in incremental steps (which he assumes no one will notice) until he gets what he wants. This process began the other day in Wisconsin with respect to his mandate that we have government-run-health care. He said "you will be able to keep your own doctor and ...more »
