CONDITIONAL RESIDENT CARDS. A TRUE SOLUTION TO ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.

There are not 100 illegal immigrants in the USA….. There are thousands. A CONDITIONAL RESIDENT CARD should be given to immigrants who DO NOT have a criminal record for murder, rape, DUI, or domestic violence. Those illegal immigrants who, at any point in their stay in the US, committed those crimes, should get DEPORTED to their country of origin right away. Illegal immigrants should pay a fine of $2,000 to $6,000 if ...more »

Government Bicycles!

I just heard about the “SAVE,” award today. I wish that I would have had more time to better breakdown my ideas but they are both fairly simple. Idea #1: I work for the United States Army Garrison Schweinfurt. It is a great military community. Our community is a little spread out on several sites. I think it would be a wonderful idea to have a government bicycle system for making trips between the sites. Since we are ...more »

GET THE ACTUAL VOTES AND TALLY THE TOTAL OF ALL LIKE IDEAS.

Combine all the similar topics into one to tally actually votes. Who has the time to read through 16k plus ideas? That sounds like a waste of Government time and money. For instance there are nearly 10,000 telework, tele-commute, telecommute, work from home, etc. these should all be tallied and then count the total votes. Do I have to take the time to read through all of these? The point was made with one; although ...more »

UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRATION SOLUTION:SELF FUNDED DETERRENT PREVENTING THE HIRING OF UNDOCUMENTED WORKERS

I suggest a new type of proactive solution in the form of an enforcement system to deter the hiring of undocumented workers (illegal aliens, deportable/inadmissible aliens) through self funded economic incentives (monetary rewards) generated by fines. It will encourage the public to report violators and discourage employers from hiring undocumented workers. A percentage of the fines levied on employers of undocumented ...more »

Open Communication

I suggest that we allow government agencies to share certain information. Just like hospitals will have online records that will enable them to share information, the government should be able to do the same. If the Social Security Administration has a fraud case, it would make sense that other departments would know to be on the lookout. If someone passes away and the VA sees a death certificate, it would make sense ...more »

Advertise Job Detail Opportunities Nationwide

Currently, opportunities for job detail assigments are handled in an ad hoc manner. Sometimes they are advertised within an office or agency, and sometimes they are done on an individual basis. I am suggesting that a database of job detail opportunities of 120-days or more be advertised in a central location similar to USAJOBS (perhaps a blog). In that way, anyone that is interested would have the opportunity to apply ...more »

Redefine Liberal Leave Policy to allow Telework

When OPM declares "Liberal Leave Policy" due to inclement weather or other events/emergencies, Federal employees are expected to use annual leave (without prior supervisory approval) or come in to work. I suggest that the "Liberal Leave Policy" be revised to also allow employees with valid telework agreements to telework from home (without prior supervisory approval). This would greatly increase Federal employee productivity ...more »

The following is a collaboration of thoughts and processes that can be taken to turn around the American Economy and head down on the path to recovery. The biggest problem with the gov’t is that it has become an Oligarchy. That is when the rich rule everything, and creates the deciding vote regardless whether the people voted or not. The biggest problem is the people have no say or voice. Big company lobbyist have ...more »

Computer Competency Assessment

Whether we like it or not, computers are here to stay. Yet many individuals struggle with computers and do not take the free training courses offered by the government agencies, ether because they do not feel like they have time to or are embarrassed to take an introductory course. Require that every single government employee take a mandatory computer skills test, and enforce training courses for those who do not pass. ...more »
