"Holiday Trees and Floral Arrangements" pare it down, folks

Really, do I want a pay freeze, then watch hundreds of thousands of dollars in fabulous floral arrangements and holiday trees stuffed to the brim in the White House? Fresh flowers all over the Executive mansion, when all my utility bills are higher and my take-home pay keeps getting lower? Really?

Lead by Example

Our President, Congressmen and Senators are in the news daily stating that we all need to make cuts in order for this country to survive. People will be more inclined to do this if our leaders showed the same restraint in their public and personnel lives.

Create a 8 Year (1Term) for President

The president will have 8 years to get his or her agenda completed. The president will not have to start campaining half way through the first term since they know they will not be reelected. This would save millions in election costs. Every 24 years we would have three elections instead of 6.

Website Security

The registration process for this website is not secure. This should be a secure website. Userids and passwords should not be transmitted in the clear. There is a high probability that some government employees may register using a password that is also valid on a government system and then that system could be hacked. My suggestion is that whitehouse.gov, as the agency running this idea process should secure the website ...more »

SHARED DOCUMENTS

The best idea I can think of would be to implement an internet shared drive between all of the agencies. Only information that needs to be shared on there will be posted, with access given to only those requested by the creator and modifying availability only allowed to a certain few. By utilizing the internet as storage for documents, we will no longer have to use burn bags and we will greatly reduce our storage costs. ...more »

4. Select team members for critical initiatives based on solid c

Current practices require office managers to select individuals from their organizations, to participate on critical cross-government and cross-office initiatives. Instead of finding the proper skills and competence for the task, office and organizational mangers, driven by interest and turf protection, are more likely to appoint those individuals who can protect their interests. This result in less than effective ...more »

Create a career ladder for engineering excellence and growth.

The current system provides no room for engineers to grow and thus grow the nation economy. They are currently driven under labor policies that have no appreciation for true engineering work or innovation. They are becoming endangered species and if not protected under national law they may soon become extinct.

Hire grumpy old codgers to manage press briefings

Instead of high-priced, highly-trained public information officers, hire dirt-cheap, grouchy old codgers, coots, and old farts to conduct press meetings. Invasive press questions can be quickly dismissed with a signature "why you ... in my day we didn't ask questions about the House Foreign Affairs Committee, we just ignored them, like you should be doing!" Then the old gentleman could make some meaningless witticism ...more »
