UNEMPLOYMENT = COMMUNITY SERVICE

If we are going to pay people who are unemployed, why don't we get some work out of them!? If nothing else, maybe there can be a minimum amount of community service required to collect these benifits! Just think of all the community projects that could be accomplished by all these millions of people! They would still have more than enough time to search for new jobs, and it might even incintivise some of the people that ...more »

Mandate that this site be uttilized

Mandate that the top 100 ideas at a minimum are forwarded to the involved agency executive for review and comment. There are an extensive amount of valuable ideas here that may not score number one. It would be tremendous waste of effort if those below number one were not reviewed for consideration. We all have an idea or two here, we all put effort into this, what a waste if the ideas were simply deleted. Mandate that ...more »

Stop Paying Twice for Windows

We buy computers from Dell. Each computer comes with a license from Microsoft. (Sticker with license key) We then buy an Enterprise license to install Windows (any version) on that computer. Dell sells computers without Windows. We can buy our computers without Microsoft licenses, and then install our Enterprise software. (Volume Licensing) We never use the preinstalled version, and we never use the license key we pay ...more »

Instead of hiring costly contractors, hire competent staff

We spend millions in contractors because our current staff is not knowledgeable or does not have the expertise to handle the work. Instead of paying an agency 2-3 times what a typical employee would cost, it would be significantly more efficient to hire people that can do the type of work. Unfortunately staff gets continually promoted that cannot do work at a higher level. Do secretaries in the private sector get promoted ...more »

Criminalize sale of food stamps

There are various examples of individuals taking the food stamps and selling them at 1/2 the value (or less), in order for them to use the cash for other uses. There should also be an audit system to ensure people are spending this given resource properly. Currently there is no way to audit spending. I have been asked several times in Baltimore city grocery stores by people to buy food stamps, or they offer to pay for ...more »

Children of Illegal Aliens No Longer Automatically US Citizens

Change the law so that children born in the U.S. are only granted U.S. citizenship if their parents are US citizens or legal residents. This would end the rampant number of illegals coming to the US just so their child can be born a US citizen. If the parents are not legally in the US, the children are not automatically granted US citizenship. This would save the federal government and local jurisdictions billions ...more »

Ask callers if we can send documents/brochures electronically

When we receive calls via the toll free number or at an SSA office, we send out a paper letter, reminding them of their appointment time if they made an appointment. In other instances, we send out big paper booklets providing information with close out letters. Why not ask the caller to provide an email address as an alternative, and they can receive the information via email instead? We can save on mailing costs and ...more »

Naturalized Citizens Convicted of Terrorism Loose Citizenship

Lately there have been a number of naturalized citizens convicted of terrorist activities against the US. None of them have lost their citizenship. They and their immediate family (if naturalized) should be immediately stripped of US citizenship on conviction of involvement in terrorist related activities. Why should someone trying to destroy us remain a citizen? It should be a privelege not a right for someone not ...more »
