Performance Appraisal

Give Citizens a Simple Checklist for Rating "Public Engagement"

When I attend a meeting that is supposed to involve some type of "public engagement", it would be nice to have a simple checklist that I could use to rate whether that meeting really was Transparent, Participatory, and Collaborative. This simple checklist could be the standard tool for citizens to provide feedback to government agencies about the quality of their public engagement activities. In fact, the requirement... more »

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 »

Tax Payer Bailout

Send every American a one time check of $10,000 The average credit card holder is $8,000 in debt, people who had debt could pay it off and those who HAVE managed to stay out of debt would be rewarded. the extra cash would jump-start the market AND help save auto makers AND the banks(have to put your $10k somewhere) it would only cost around $200,000,000,000 (2 hundred billion) we bailed out the banks for 750 billion...... 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 »

Making Data More Accessible

I used to live in Hawaii...

...and a "Certificate of Live Birth" is NOT the same thing as a "Birth Certificate" in that state. You can check this out for yourself via their own state websites. I now live in Houston and two weeks ago had a chance convesation with a foreign student who is going to school here for Business. He is from Kenya. I asked him what do the Kenyan people think about Obama and all the controvery about where he was born?... more »

Start a billboard campaign to find the Dr. that delivered Obama.

Somebody start collecting money to buy advertising in Hawaii to ask for leads as to whom the Dr. is that delivered Obama. We need a movement dedicated to finding and interviewing this most auspicious obstetrician. What an honor to be the man who delivered B.H.O.! Wouldn't we be able to contact ALL of the living obstetricians in Hawaii who were practicing at the time of his arrival upon the earth? How many could... more »

Is Anyone Really Fooled?

There is a truism more certain than the sunrise each morning. Obama, like most career politicians will stop at nothing to increase his political capital. Which simply means that if he had nothing to hide, the birth certificate would not be in a vault; it would be on display in the national mall.

 

President Obama...what are you hiding?

BIRTH CERTIFICATE QUESTIONS

TWO QUESTIONS: 1) WHY DID THE GOVERNOR OF HAWAII SEAL YOUR BIRTH CERTIFICATE JUST BEFORE THE ELECTION? 2) WHY ARE YOUR PASSPORT & SCHOOL RECORDS SEALED AND UNAVAILABLE FOR PUBLIC VIEW? YOU ONLY SEAL RECORDS TO PROTECT SOMEONE OR HIDE SOMETHING, WHICH IS IT? IF THIS IS "CONSPIRACY", FINE, RELEASE ALL DOCUMENTS & PROVE IT WRONG, ISN'T THAT WHAT THE PRESIDENT SAID IN HIS INAUGURATION SPEECH, A TIME OF FACTS,... more »

President Obama: Prove That You Are A Natural Born Citizen

What we have been shown, a Certificate of Live Birth, does not prove that you were born a natural citizen. This requirement is a Constitutional requirement. You cannot be President without it. It is so simple to produce and the Americans who pay your salary are demanding it, in court and in the streets. You are our employee; show us that you're not a fraud.

Ban the electoral collage

I remember election day. The Alaskan poles had not even closed and (elledged) president obama was giving his acceptance speech. I was so pissed that my vote counted for not. Nothing, nodda. All I ever heard was "that's how the system works". Had the peoples vote actually counted, (alledged) president obama would not be selling out our country like he lived on Jackle Island like the last jerk that sold us out. Wile we... more »

New Strategies and Techniques

Transparent is as transparent does....or is it really "Stupid" is as "stupid" does????

Ok folks, what does the future hold?? I have read quite a bit of info on the Late Great OBAMA NATION chit chat and I, as so many others (and the numbers are growing exponentially by the way), am disheartened, disgusted, and DETERMINED to make my voice heard. I know in my heart that as a natural-born citizen of the United States, a Veteran of a foreign war, a believer in our beautifully unique freedom-fought-for Constitution... more »
