Excellent idea, Mr. Speaker

This is perfect.....

First, the backstory......Divine Intervention/Government Incompetence

My darling daughter lives in Salisbury, NC, along with the off-line "brains" of United Smiths of America. On my return journey via Amtrak, I was a southbound passenger on the following train derailment, I have the stub in Google Picasa, tell me how to make it my "avatar".......

http://archive.salisburypost.com/archive_detail.php?archiveFile=./pubfiles/sls/archive/2005/April/27/Area/17342.xml&start=0&numPer=20&keyword=train+derailment&sectionSearch=&begindate=1/1/1983&enddate=12/31/2006&authorSearch=&pubsection=&page=&IncludeStories=1&IncludePages=1&IncludeImages=1&mode=allwords&archive_pubname=Salisbury+Post

And after the 10 hours episode (thank god we were'nt on the 10th floor of a bombed building, or a rooftop in NewOrleans), me and five strangers discussed the derailment in the barcar, plus I showed them 5 planks the United Smiths of America came up with.

This was the THIRD pre-Katrina episode I witnessed, telling me, "we are screwed", the first in 1978 when we broke into the nuclear fallout shelter underneath the Abbey Church in St. Bernard Alabama, found tins of moldy 1960's crackers as the "food" in case of emergency.

So, this is a great place to discuss common sense government, the United Smith's of America.

Plank 1-Revoke every pension/insurance perk for "elective/elected" officials, the dole is over for millionaires who got us here in the first place.

Plank 2-Bring back "exile" to quickly deal with dictators involved with crimes against humanity. My Sisters in Benedictines for Peace assure me that St. Helena Island (Napolean) or Antarctic moonlike pods appear feasible and justified.

Plank 3-Mint a one dollar and 5 dollar coin.

Plank 4-Education-uniforms work/year round calender works/segregation of sexes benefits both groups. Just do it.

Plank 5-TrueMajority.com describes it best. 10,000 nuclear warheads is a tad uberboard in the US arsenal. Tractors/waterpumps replace arming the rest of the world. Our helicoptors are threatened with clones of the same missles we gave the Afgans in the 1980's.

This is serious, folks, looking for ideas the 80% of citizens can agree on.

Estate tax? Environment? Hubble versus "return to the moon"? "Corporate welfare (agri. bill favoring Con-Agra/ADM versus small farmers")

These are the "dead horses in Main Street", dealt with promptly. 80% of us can agree on "spammers", probably legislate something to deal with it in less than a week.

Anyway, love to hear from other citizens.

United "my name ain't Smith" of America.

Plank #6 - Fully scour the patent office, nationalize "energy conservation" devises hidden by pubically traded/regulated corporations.

Plank #7- People before corps, bankruptcy/prescription/interest rates/utilities/ etc. etc.

Create huge tax burdens for people who are going to drive gas guzzling SUVs, and cuts for peope who drive efficiant vehicles.

The "SUV" surcharge would be natural IF the price of gas was realistic. They are saying this "lower before the election" is a Goldman Sachs commodity shenanigan (the new Sec of Treas), but the price versus barrel of oil price is out of kilter on the graphs.
And the price does not include the military to guard the supply line, nor the future cost of correcting global warming.
And the energy policy/corn-based (con agra/ADM) ethanol would collapse if we bought all the sugar cane we can get hold of, AT A REASONABLE PROFIT TO THIRD WORLD FARMERS.

This whole "mystery" of why gas prices dropped, people changed their habits at $3 gas, and the lower/lower middle continue to carpool while the consumption stays the same. ???

THINK OF THIS- In WW II there was "rationing". How could a fair/balanced plastic card type rationing system be implemented??? To force a drop of 10% per year, for 5 years?
:unsure: Just a mental puzzle, winner gets to be "sec of gas rationing." :unsure:

Not so, the "Bratz" bike (aprox. $59 on sale @ W-Mart) can fit an engine w/ a 90 degree intake adapter, the plug electrode fits inside the frame perfect. Its a kids bike but would be a good starting point.

I dont understand how some people drive these old lifted trucks with really loud exhaust that get about 8 mpg. i get 80 mpg. I pay about 3 bucks to go 80 miles, and they have to pay 30 to go 80 miles... I just don't get why anyone would do that.
