    Suggestions for Obama

  • Ukranias’s crisis solution.

    Renato Neubert de Souza
    7 May 2015 | 12:50 pm
    Dear Mr. Obama, USA’s president, I suggest that to solve the Ukrania’s crisis and preserve the integrity of that country would be enough to extend also to Russia the invite made to Ukrania by European Union. Every historic event, mainly the war, till today had always behind it some economic cause. Well, today wars are not more solutions, since the militar arsenals became them unviables. also economically. Wars today have no more winners, only losers. The European Union tries for the first time to solve economic diferences between diverse countries and peoples through an union…
  • The brutal war games

    Imagine a world where you didn’t have to kill countless people for the sake of some oil. Imagine a world where both parties that seek to fight over the oil would gather their best soldiers and fight the must brutal of arena games in the audience of their leaders with equal wagers. All world leaders must respect the rules of this deadly game and to the victor always goes the spoils. If a team should refuse to lose at all costs it is permitted to use deadly force. Not only could countries battle 1 team vs 1 team. There could be wagers of massive quantities of goods like precious metals…
  • Supertax luxury goods for american debt relief

    Casey Gasquet
    10 Apr 2015 | 5:25 pm
    Put massive 50% taxes on goods like playstations, tvs, plane tickets even… 75% on first class tickets. The billionaires shouldn’t mind throwing in an extra penny and I’m sure it wouldn’t kill the kids to play basketball for a couple more months instead of playing the latest game system. Even tax some various luxury foods. Reduce the tax for people with disabilities, people on welfare, and people with food stamps. Also reduce all supertaxes for people native to America.

  • Legalize weed and supertax it

    Casey Gasquet
    10 Apr 2015 | 5:12 pm
    Think about this, marijuana is basically going to be legal in a few years anyway so you need to act fast. It will be dirt cheap so nobody will notice the government taking a massive extra 50% for tax purposes in recreational marijuana sales. Maybe a 25% for medical marijuana sales. Also throw in a big tax for people buying from growers to stock their stores. If you tax it fast people will not even notice. If you wait too long then pushing the supertax will cause trouble. Use the profits to reduce America’s debt greatly. Location: Buras, louisiana, USA
  • Better Goverment

    Ron Ellison
    22 Mar 2015 | 7:58 pm
    Not enough people participate in the election process. The rich flood the poles while the working cannot afford to go to the polls due to work or illness. I propose that the government give each voter a 100 dollar voucher that is only useful to pay income tax. This is peanuts as far as the rich is concerned, but needed to compensate the poor. And no value if you don’t pay taxes. Pluss the IRS can scan and limit invalid vouchers. Location: Oklahoma 74464
