DoD Recycling Centers

Due to the exponential growth of the DoD’s Demil Stockpile, the costs associated with it, and the export of valuable raw materials from the demilitarization of munitions and DoD turn-in items, I recommend the scrap material from DoD turn-in items and Demilitarization efforts be recycled at government run or contracted processing plants (i.e. Steel mills). Congress passed the Resource Recovery and Recycling (R3) Demilitarization ...more »

Stop replacing furniture for every new senior management official

Stop the practice of replacing furniture every time a new SES, or political hire takes over an office. This is a waste of money for prestige or personal tastes at the expense of the government. New or like new furniture is replaced and goes where? If furniture is in useful condition it should stay, especially if in a sitting area or waiting area of an office.

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 »

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 »

Scratch This! (Pad, that is).

I have a suggestion to save money - government wide. I call it "Scratch this! (pad, that is)." This is a very simple idea with huge cost-savings. When I was in the private sector, I worked at a hotel/resort that conducted business with a printing company (letterhead, business cards, etc.) We were constantly steno pads, tablets of paper, etc., for folks to jot down notes (even though those notes were of a temporary ...more »
