Implement federally supported regional manufacturing, agricultural, and other trades public service academies to teach people how make, build, and do things. They can be taught by experts and retired people from those fields. Participants can learn about all levels of production through management. What is produced and the skilled labor can benefit the communities and country. Certified graduates can go on to work in their own business or other companies after 4 yrs service.

Where I live big industry discharges millions of pounds of toxins into the air. The inside of homes and cars have weird dust and grit in them. Please regulate companies being allowed to discharge millions of pounds of toxic waste particles into the air and make then use scrubbers and equipment to clean up their manufacturing process.
This is more of a comment on the idea of basic housing for the homeless. In the state of TN we have homeless shelters. There, the homeless have their needs met for food, clothing, and a warm place to stay, It would be great if every homeless person in this country could have a private shelter, but there is no way this could be paid for. We need to keep trying to find a way to help educate and find jobs for the homeless, so that they can get off the streets and have a meaningful life!
Eliminate tax returns and filing by changing the tax laws and enforcing a 10% accross the board tax for everyone, to be collected by the employer. This would include all Corporations income. If a working person is making less than poverty level, no taxes are to be paid. NO tax returns or deductions. No evasive tax laws. Everyone pays the same pure and simple. Corporations that have their bank accounts out of Country are still required to pay the 10%.
show that Hydro-Fracking is not sustainable, way too toxic,wastes millions of gallons of fresh water per well, per day, fills up the groundwater with 600 plus, volatile,hormone disruptors, and cancer causing chemicals, skirts the Clean Air, Clean and Clean Water Acts, by way of ,the Halliburton Loophole ,written by the extraction industry, and Dick Chaney,leaks large amounts of "Methane" that is 80 times worse than C O2. Ruins farms, and property values, it will never pay for itself. Treason
GMO crops promised higher yields and claimed required less toxic pesticide spraying. Of which neither are true. In fact, GMO seeds stop the plants ability to obtain minerals and other nutrients from the soils its planted in. Therefore, rendering the food derived from those crops worthless in much needed nutrients to sustain human and animal lives. Stop GMO crops now and return to true natural seeds immediately in order to feed our growing population!
Allow online taxpayers to itemize not only their tax deductions, but their tax expenditures as well. Want to fund only the Forestry Service? Go ahead! Have a fondness for the Navy? Make it your 50% priority! Those who choose not to itemize will have their tax dollars allocated by the formula Congress passes; and if no one steps up for the NSA, well, too bad so sad!
Use transitioning military personnel to reduce the overall cost of public infrastructure while at the same time providing on the job training and providing introductions to prospective employers. The project funding should supplement the military pay such that the transitioning military personnel's pay would be relatively commensurate with private sector workers in comparable positions.
