Control/Ban Fireworks: Fireworks spread carcinogenic heavy metals and toxic gases, harmful to humans and all living things. FIREWORKS present one of the deadliest ongoing degraders of clean air and water quality in the USA.They are detonated at an ever growing and alarming rate. We are not free if we cannot escape poor air and water quality caused by fireworks. We need strict limitations or a general ban on the sale and use of fireworks in the USA.
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.
Mandate sustainability by requiring transformation of energy from oil economy to sustainable energy economy including solar, wind and free energy. And transfer from conventional agriculture practices to green agriculture--no GMOs, no pesticides nor herbicides--which uses permaculture & biodynamic techniques.
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!
Demand that legislative lobbyists register (all levels: city, county, State, federal; all branches: legislative, executive, bureaucratic, court), with a fee - substantial - to be applied except for 3% administrative fee to any debt carried by lobbied agency. This is anyone wanting to 'talk,' other than answering a summons or completing a required form. Does not apply to someone applying for assistance under mandate of agency.
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
Restructure corporate income tax so that the companies that made over 200 billion dollars will pay a fair share, instead of nothing. If the Republican party is being honest about debt reduction being a priority, then they can close the tax loopholes and reduce the debt while saving Medicare, social security, and repairing the infrastructure.
More money for CPS Services to protect children from abusers; a national database of abusers and their victims; better follow up by CPS workers to homes of children who have been designated as victims of abuse. There are way too many children being abused and killed because of lack of resources for CPS Services.
Start a National campaign to teach people how to prepare healthy food for themselves. The skill of food acquisition and preparation is necessary for healthy populations. Early childhood education for appreciation of home cooked food and food ambassadors at grocery stores to teach adults are good places to start.
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!
I would like to see the government impose a penalty. equal to or greater than, the amount of money the government pays out in subsidies to fund or supplement costs of related to housing, health care and other benefits for under paid workers by companies like Walmart, Sam's Club, McDonald's, and others.
