  • National education requirements - screw the NCLB testing. In order to receive a diploma, each student must be able to:
    Pass the GED
    balance a checkbook
    complete a tax return
    plan out a monthly and yearly budget with different variations of one and two incomes
    cook from scratch and have a basic understanding of nutrition and the damage caused by fast food and convenience food
    pass a driver's ed/road safety course and pass the written test for their state

    Now the funny part is, except for the cooking and the GED part, those all were the requirements to graduate where I went to school. Sadly, a lot of people who graduated, and many of the people I meet now who think they're so much better than someone with a GED, would never have a chance in hell of actually passing the GED. The requirements are currently more difficult than most high schools.

  • All sexual predators be sent to prison for the remainder of the natural life, no parole, on the first offense. Why? Because they are vile, depraved scum. Studies can't agree on recidivism rates...but they all agree the criminal with the haighest rate by far is the sexual offender. Child sex offenders who have been convicted and released later often begin to kill the children to avoid being accused again.

  • I'll go further than. We'll just abolish name calling all together. Discuss issues like adults without calling eachother names.

    You seem to be having trouble discerning adjective from name calling. Someone who molests children is called a pedophile. Someone who steals is called a criminal. Someone who insists entire religions should be abolished, members of those religions are inherently evil, or equates the acts of individuals with entire groups is called a bigot. If people don't want to be called pedophiles, criminals or bigots, they shouldn't act like them.

  • Ok, seriously, how many of you all have the same assignment and when is it due?

    Abolish the lobby.

  • Outlaw the word bigot. People can come up with another word to describe people they disagree with.

    But it's so much shorter than xenophobic idjit

  • Recycling. I think each county in a state should have this. This would produce jobs for one and cut back on waste. But the government isn't concerned about either of these things, sadly.

  • That BEFORE a person can take the office of President of the United States, especially if they are already a Senator, they are REQUIRED to attend ALL Senate, and House hearings, unless they are dead or dying. NOT because they are out becoming the darling of the media, running for President. Hopefully, that way, they will KNOW what is going on in our country, and will not be in over their head, with no clue what's going on, and make us all suffer for 4 years.

  • The federal government shall not be allowed to control, discuss, rule on, etc.... any issue not directly concerning national security or inter-state dispute. All federal laws (or court rulings) concerning matters that should be of state control should be hereby abolished. (in short)

  • That I am queen......because it's good to be queen! :P

    No, just kidding....I think we have enough laws, we just need to enforce them, and the ones I would enforce involve clean air and water...
