Get rid of most of the military

The Cold War is over and no country is left out there that has the means and desire to invade us. Most of the military mission now is to play world policeman. We could save trillions if we just told the rest of the world they have to carry their share of the burden of keeping international peace or we quit. We have problems with terrorism but the military can't do much about that, since we don't know who or where ...more »

Forget about Resolution of the Birth-Certificate 'Issue'!

(or rather, non-issue) No matter what document he displays NOW, no matter what series of heavily-locked vaults he puts it in, no matter how the paper smells (even if you have C. Everett Koop himself sign on his medical honor that the carbon-date tests show that the certificate Obama shows is the self-same one that was printed as he lay in the manger of the Hawaiian stable) ... SOMEBODY is going to claim that it's ...more »

Break michigan and california off the dollar

In order for michigan to compete on a global level it needs to have its own central bank that would have the ability to internally issue money independent of the federal reserve. Also it needs to become self sufficient manufacturing base. This would allow them to produce at a lower cost of production than china and korea. As an autonomous member of the united states the rest of the country wouldn't be liable for it. Since ...more »

Monetary Spending

Just a thought, in economic hardship why is there wasteful spending. An example, a week or so ago NASA sent people to repair the Hubble space telescope, I don't know how much it cost to send a space shuttle into space or how much it takes to repair a space telescope, but I'd imagine that it's a lot. But when you really think about it, what is an immediate economic concern, spending money on a space telescope that is not ...more »

No Tax paid Health Insurance and Benefits for any Public Employees

No public employee should be furnished any kind of Health or Life Insurance benefits from our tax dollars by the city, state, or Federal Govt.

The need for a starflight program.

Nasa needs to retool and to be expanded as an infrastructure management agency that brings together corporate/public/personal and financial interests in developing the resources of low orbit, the moon and the inner system. That needs to be done as part of preperation for particle research facilities on the moons of jupiter and saturn. I believe the materials required to achieve super luminal flight to other systems ...more »

Tax inert wealth

We know that trickle-down economics doesn't work. The truth is that the more money you put in the hands of the middle & lower classes, the more money you are circulating through your economy. People that are salaried at the mean & below spend the majority of the money they make, which in turn improves the economy, and essentially trickles up into the coffers of corporations and eventually, those with the largest investment ...more »

Stop trying to pass excessive agendas such as health care and cap and trade during economic hardships

Every poll I have ever seen has health care as the very last (about 2% usually) in importance to the American people. I can honestly say I do not want to pay for an illegal alien to go to the emergency room 10 times a week (know for a fact from working in the healthcare field). Also, there are millions of people who do not believe in global warming and scientific data has backed them up on this. For this reason alone ...more »

President's Salary = $1 per year

I really like Obama, but in this modern age there is no real need for the President to make a salary of $400,000 per year. Right? For several decades each new president has already been wealthy when entering office. After leaving office the multi-million dollar book deals, lucrative speaking tours, and their general celebrity makes the idea of paying the president seem silly. I think the presidential salary during ...more »

us a fiat issue to retire national debt and privatization of assets build through fiat financing to pay it off.

an idea would be to use fiat issues on potential value gained through infrastructure and industrial contruction as well as contruction of lowcost public housing. This would allow the president to jump start the production and consumption base of the economy by building both demand and consumption. As well as having a supplus value through controling contruction that could be used to negate existing treasury bonds. Projects ...more »
