END BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP!!

This is an idea from the 1800s that anyone born on United States soil is automatically a citizen. Other countries do not do this! You have to be born of a citizen to be a citizen. I think ending this practice will basically solve one of the biggest immigration issues we have. The practice of illegal imigrant coming here to have children (aka anchor babies) so that they can stay in this country. Just something to think... more »

Get rid of Congresses Personal Jets and Other things

Right now the biggest thing that comes to my mind is Nancy Pelosi and the multi million dollar jet she had the government pay to get her so she could fly nonstop from her home state to DC, with her, her crew, and 200 reporters. Seriously, why is the government paying to transport reporters? Everytime her aircraft flys in any direction it costs the taxpayers 60,000 dollars. Why not do away with all the private aircraft,... more »

One Function = One Provider

We have WAY too many "service versions" of the same functional items. Great examples would be Combat Camera, Network Warfare, Spectrum Management, etc... Increase the use of FUNCTIONAL commands and stop allowing each service to create their own version of the same capability.

Save billions by using military instead of contractors

The Government pays contractors billions of dollars to do installation projects that could be accomplaished by assets that are already in place! I work in the Telecommunications field and have deployed twice to Iraq and Afghanistan to install communications on bases there. I also went to Iraq for 1 year as a contractor. I made more money in the one year as a contractor (over 170k) than I did the other 2 combined! And... more »

I recommend the entire security clearance operation be transferred to the Department of Homeland Security. Homeland Security will have direct IT access or work with various Federal agencies and local law enforcement to complete the entire adjudication... more »

Eliminate Air Force Linguists Receiving iPads

It has been announced that all Air Force linguists will be receiving iPads for their individual home studies related to their language(s). Previously, they were issued iPods to do the same. I can understand receiving a device that you can listen to linguistics, but to issue iPads at the super-high costs is an utter waste of DoD funds! The current iPods are not even used by the linguists for the purpose intended. To... more »

All measures with a payback of less than five years should be implemented immediately. These energy savings measures will... more »
