Department of State

One World Government

The United States shall make every effort to work toward the goal of uniting the entire planet under a new world order. We could bring in more taxpayers from all over the world and end senseless war. Defense would be concerned with defending the planet instead of having to worry about another nation on our own planet.

Steam Engines to Go Green

Back, as far as 1900, people used to drive steams car. Where the used of boilers, fans and water produced no pollution. If the new government intent under the new “Green Project”, for all agencies is the conservation of our resources, I strongly believe that the government can take back some of the olds engine models and their applications as it’s the steam engine, to be use it on future model cars. “A steam engine is... more »

Printing money is expensive. We could save money with an automated system. I propose we show our patriotism by getting an American flag tattooed onto our hand – or some patriotic Americans can have it on their forehead. The flag will be specially coded with a small bar code under it that is unique for every citizen. A database will keep track of each person’s accounts. To enforce this system, cash will become void... more »

Same Day RDOs - Regular Day Off

I suggest the entire government go to mandatory same-day RDOs and close offices - lights, heating, air, everything, during non-hours. A few secure laptops and access to a central computer room for emergencies could fill the gap. Command centers and the like should be powered separately. Lots of energy savings - timekeeping savings, security guards, carbon footprint. You name it. Day established for mandatory RDO would... more »
