Federal Advisory Committees

The new "Compensation Czar"

News item: "The Obama administration plans to appoint a "Special Master for Compensation" to ensure that companies receiving federal bailout funds are abiding by executive-pay guidelines, according to people familiar with the matter."

 

I hope they start with Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Congressional staff members. They have no business messing around in the provate economy.

Legal & Policy Challenges

Mandatory Exit Strategy

My idea is to require any major or minor initiative or bill in congress to outline a minimum of two exit strategies. As any bill exits committee and enters open debate, it must articulate how its effects are intended to work and what mitigation strategies will be used to ensure it maintains its rightful purpose. Each bill will delineate a time frame for objective completion and address optimum as well as adverse scenarios. ...more »

Grassroots Lobbyists

Create legal guidelines for allowable spending for lobbying directly to congress (including political contributions) to be tied directly to the certifiable size of the public membership the lobby has.

Free Obama (No Kidding)

I spent the morning reading every single posted idea, many of the comments, and then posted my own five ideas and thought to leave it at that. However, during the mowing of the lawn it came to me. Idea first, then the short explanation Free Obama. Simple, straight-forward, and the ONE THING that we can all focus on to achieve ALL of the ideas posted so far. Right now, President Barack Obama is president in name ...more »

New Strategies and Techniques

Removing Soetono from office & purging Congress

I know we are all waiting for this since Soetono has done quite a remarkable job of luring all the espionage moles out of the woodwork, and given the Enemy the idea that they've succeeded from within, and I have the means whereby that will happen: As the illegitimate son of former East German STAZI "Master Spy" Markus Wolf, I was used to lure he to the West in the mid '70s. Even at that point, they knew that Soetono ...more »

New Strategies and Techniques

Internet Voting to Replace Congress for Representation

The strategy of having elected Congress members to represent constituencies was applicable when we had such a spread out citizen population and no technology to get every voice heard. We now have the technology available to truly have a government by the people. We will of course need congress-people, but their and their staff's role will be merely to sort through people-generated ideas (like this website)and to formulate, ...more »

Equal Representation Through the Elimination of Congressional Districts

To grant each state its specified number of representatives in Congress, we have devised a system not founded in the Constitution – Congressional districts. Each state is split up into geographical regions approved by the state legislatures and signed by the state governor. Under this system, each geographical district elects one representative who is then supposed to represent those people by voting, debating, and speaking ...more »

The Tree of Obama

"You will know a tree by it's fruit." Matthew 7:16 The Obama Tree is a black Oak. The leaves protect the tree from the light of truth. The bark is hard and callus to prevent transparency. The fruit is the ACORN, to reproduce itself again and again. The roots of deception go deep into the American soil.

Rulemaking

Make congress and senate an even political party member of numbers

It is not fair to the people of the United States to have one house have a majority in democrats or republicans to pass votes on issues that will have an impact on the entire country. Each branch should have the exact same number of members from each party. If one party member wanted to vote on an issue from another party then that would be fine, but at least it would be fair and balanced. As it is now there is nothing ...more »

American citizenship or being a citizen of Heaven

If you had a choice between being an American citizen or being a citizen of Heaven, which would you choose? For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; Philippians 3:20 I am choosing being a citizen of Heaven since Obama and his team is taking America straight to world citizenship, and then straight to hell. Citizen of Heaven = Thumbs up Citizen of America ...more »
