Public-Private Partnerships

Public/Private partnership

This term has been used to mean partnership funding, ownership and running of .... However, what is really important now is to change the meaning of that term. We now have to have business, government and employees working together. There has been too much emphasis on the 'business of business is business' and workers should receive less health and retirement benefits as well as loss of income and degraded working conditions... more »

Training and Development

Training

Business, government and employees can work together during these tough times. This idea has been promoted in Ireland where unemployment has reached 11%. The Government wants to cut benefits and people are outraged since they are NOT responsible for the crisis. This is the suggestion: 1) Have business maintain employees for 2 days/week ... pay them and they work. 2) Government covers 3 days/week while employees get... more »

Have all in government be investigated for any inappropriate monetary spending of taxpayer money

I'm sorry, but this administration so far has become the most unethical and corrupt I've seen or read about in history (aside from Nixon). I am embarrassed that my President would hire white collar criminals to serve in his cabinet and allow the Speaker of the House to lie about our national intelligence agency without asking her to step down like he asked a private business CEO to do. I have seen one democrat after another... more »

Copying our way to better school systems

Stop letting bad school systems experiment with reform. Make them imitate one of the more successful systems instead. Here's how it would work. 1. Define the demographic categories that will be applied to each school system. This would be things like the total population of students served, the relative economic status of those students, the transiency rate, ethnic mixture, etc... 2. After the demographic criteria... more »

New Strategies and Techniques

Build a more democratic democracy

When cities incorporate now they have 4 different kinds of governmental structure to choose from, strong mayor/weak city council, weak mayor/strong city council, etc... It might be time to add a 5th. Politicians these days are elected more on the basis of cash, charisma, and cronyism than on their ability to solve the problems at hand. We should take away those factors so everyone who wanted to run for office would do... more »

Public-Private Partnerships

Tie Income Taxes to Our Preferences

This idea is intended to give people more say in how their tax dollars are spent. It will also allow those whose religious convictions make spending their tax dollars on certain programs abhorent to withhold their consent. The concept is fairly simple. There would be a section added to the tax form that lists the various governmental departments (mostly based on cabinet positions). Each taxpayer would determine what... more »

Strategic Planning and Budgeting

Appoint a bipartisan panel to start limiting government programs and government departments

This administration is getting "too big for their britches." The founding fathers created our government to have very little impact on the people and to remain small and out of the private sector. Over time it has become more expanded and is invading our private lives more and more. The ONLY sector that is prospering job-wise is the government. Our president is making more and more departments and then is hiring "czars"... more »

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 »

BEING COMPETITIVE

BEING COMPETITIVE: This is how I'm being effected by the chaos caused by deregulated markets ... I've lost my job, my retirement and my health care. Let me tell you this ... if 'being competitive' means that our developed country is supposed to live on the pittance that workers in other countries get then we are just competing for the worst living conditions. If businesses do not offer workers good salary, good retirement... more »

Between Federal Agencies

Turn over the names of the Republiklan cyberterrorists to the FBI.

On June 1st, 2009 a cadre of the members of the Republiklan party decided that they wanted to obstruct the process of government, so they posted hundreds of "ideas" that more or less questioned the birth certificate and the birth of our President Barack Obama. They also voted down every progressive "idea" on this web site. These user ids and their email addresses should get turned over to the FBI so the government can... more »
