How to deal with widening inequality: Mandate all US citizens to dedicate 2 weeks a year to do manual work such as; farming, construction, street cleaning, garbage collection, etc. By that, it raises awareness of what's crucial supporting our lives, as well as appreciation to others who do for their livelihood. Payments of livable wage ($15 or 20/hr?) to be paid during the service by FED.
Stop spending money on projects that can wait, such a new Parking Lot for the Tinley Park Convention Center. The 77,000 they are getting to renovate the parking lot or the building is a crime. We have people living on the streets, who are homeless and unfortunately a lot of them live with a brain disorder. We have many people living with a brain disorder who no longer have a day program to go to because the funds have run out and they close the day programs or clinics.
instead of euthanization and cremation of so many abandoned or unwanted pets at animal shelters here in the USA and in other western nations -- put the sacrificed animal to some good use; allow the animals to be frozen and sold to starving distressed nations and/or people who can use the meat of the sacrificed animals as a source of protein for sustainance of life, and secondarily, they can use the skins of the animals for other adjunct products they may need to make and use to sustain life.
A paradigm shift in where (and how) we source our carbon based, liquid fuels. - Historically, we went below earth's surface to find it and deplete the nonrenewable resource - We propose that we source it from abundant atmospheric resources, above the earth's surface. This paradigm shift would replace carbon sourced from the carbon cycle that cycled during the dinosaur era with distributively sourced carbon from the current carbon cycle. Based on our research data, we can produce unprece
AIR IS FIRST, WATER IS SECOND, FOOD IS THIRD. FOOD HAVING NO NEGATIVE IMPACT ON ENVIRONMENT AND USING LESS WATER IS THE WAY OF THE FUTURE. My mission, I believe a matter of our nations survival, is to move this nation forward a large step towards Aquaculture, hydroponics and preferably aqauponics. Our food source is already dismal. We used to be called the food basket, California was producing the majority of vegetables and other foods. I am seeking grant to get started.
Pass an amendment to the constitution that citizens are the sole managers of their bodies, property, and residences. That no government or private entity can infringe upon that right, unless the citizen is causing harm to another. Thus we will have the right to die, to have sex however we want, to refuse a draft, to take any drug we need, to grow any type of drug W/O taxation, and more. Imagine a world where drugs cost pennies w/o legal issues. It was pre-WW1 and a golden era in history.
End corporate lying for profit. In honor of Dr. Clair Cameron Patterson who fought multinational oil and gas corporations to prove that lead in paint and gasoline can fatally harm people; we must end the for profit science liars like Robert A. Kehoe by punishing the corporations who employ them. The tobacco science wars have evolved into the climate science, chemical pollution dumping and GMO science wars. The US have the most relaxed regulations and relaxed enforcement.
"Lotterize" the federal income tax to put some fun into paying your taxes. Say you owe $3000 in taxes. Give people the option of paying the $3000 OR buying the National Tax Lottery Tickets at a slightly higher amount. (Actuaries could figure out the premium. bit rough example: instead of $3000 you owe, you could pay $3500 for 'lottery tickets' and a chance to win up to a $billion payout if enough folks enter.) Details forthcoming on my blog!
