    #1 Teachers, firefighters, Police dont need to make $20.00+ an hour with benefits, these are very basic education jobs that our desired not for money anyway, most of these jobs can be supplemented with an all volunteers force who will work for free. or min. wage.

    #2 The Navy and Army??? Huge worthless expences! What are they for? to battle Hitler and Japan, those days are long gone, these branchs should be totally disbanded, just the upkeep for those ships is an insane amount of wasted money. (just selling a few aircraft carriers would bring some big bucks)Our missles silos, satllites and CC stations can defend our waters better anyway, The marines, airforce,coast guard and national guard would remain our national defence force.

    #3 Sports stars making millions...what a joke, again alotta people would play for alot less,(just enough for a medium life style) and just for the fun of it and the fame, they would probably be better than the millionaire players anyway, they would be playing because they love the game.

    #4 (Houseing problems) All house mortgages should be in paid in full by the federal government , then each propertys, property tax would be raised accordingly to recoup their money, the propertys value would be reflected by the taxes owed on it, ie. so a property that is free and clear would be worth more on the housing market, then one with higher taxes owed, but paid for by the government houses would be easier for applicants to get in to.

    #5 (unemployment)Let the unemployment rise!!! cut uneployment to 3-6 months max, either work or fall to welfare...people will figure it out sooner or later that their gonna have to goto work probably for less money then they think their worth... or stay in their government housing waiting for their bare min welfare checks.

    #6 Tax the hell outa cell phones...ive seen even bums on the corner talking on a cell phones..thats a way to get money outa everyone fast.

    made this list in 15mins

    So you expect somebody living in pretty much any city in America to run into a burning building to save citizens for less that $800 a week?

    Yeah, right!

    eh, if you find yourself in a burning building, well...that's your own damn fault. Folks should inspect a building before they enter to make sure it's fire protected.

    And you should have to put in a credit card number when you call 911.

    I have to confess.... I was laughing so much about police and teachers being 'minimum education' jobs that I didn't get any further.

    :lol:

    While you can fill in with volunteers, for emergencies, or temp work... Teachers, FF, and cops are high end educated. a degree is required for each and then there's the extra training.

    #2 The Navy and Army??? Huge worthless expences! What are they for? to battle Hitler and Japan, those days are long gone, these branchs should be totally disbanded, just the upkeep for those ships is an insane amount of wasted money. (just selling a few aircraft carriers would bring some big bucks)Our missles silos, satllites and CC stations can defend our waters better anyway, The marines, airforce,coast guard and national guard would remain our national defence force.

    Well the Navy can replace the CG, and the Army can replace the the National Guard as well as absorb the AF. Not an entirely bad idea.

    #3 Sports stars making millions...what a joke, again alotta people would play for alot less,(just enough for a medium life style) and just for the fun of it and the fame, they would probably be better than the millionaire players anyway, they would be playing because they love the game.

    Sounds like you got cut early from the team. This has zilch to do with the economy beyond the taxes the players and owners pay.

    #4 (Houseing problems) All house mortgages should be in paid in full by the federal government , then each propertys, property tax would be raised accordingly to recoup their money, the propertys value would be reflected by the taxes owed on it, ie. so a property that is free and clear would be worth more on the housing market, then one with higher taxes owed, but paid for by the government houses would be easier for applicants to get in to.

    That's just bat shit crazy. The government would end up owning all our homes, and what the government owns.....

    #5 (unemployment)Let the unemployment rise!!! cut uneployment to 3-6 months max, either work or fall to welfare...people will figure it out sooner or later that their gonna have to goto work probably for less money then they think their worth... or stay in their government housing waiting for their bare min welfare checks.

    sounds fair.

    #6 Tax the hell outa cell phones...ive seen even bums on the corner talking on a cell phones..thats a way to get money outa everyone fast.

    Why just cell phones?
