    Suggestions for Obama

  • America Officially Being Declared a Nation that is Agnostic

    James Adams
    26 Mar 2014 | 9:02 pm
    Dear Mr. President, Greetings! Grace and peace to you from God our Father and Jesus Christ, the One whom God sent! My name is James Adams and I have a suggestion for you tonight: That America be declared at an official level an agnostic nation, not to be confused with one that is an atheistic nation. As you know, sir, the 1st Amendment of our Constitution goes as follows: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and…

  • Curb Flooding and Help California’s Drought

    24 Feb 2014 | 7:11 am
    It seems like every year I hear about the drought on the west coast and flooding on the east coast. Why can’t we build a national aqueduct to divert the flood waters to the west? The ancient Egyptians were smart enough to divert flood waters from the Nile when needed. The Roman Empire was smart enough to move water via an aqueduct to areas that needed water. We all know with the climate change, an expanding population, and contaminates in our water, potable fresh water will be a very important to us in the future. Just as the highway system brought the country together, a national aqueduct…
  • Another way the whitehouse can increase wages of people

    Bill Benkula

    President Obama, I enjoyed your state of the state speech Tuesday. I agree with you desire to increase wages for the working poor. I am from Idaho so completely understand the challenges of getting Congress on board with this process. While your idea to raise wages for Fdereral contractors to 10:10 an hour, it will probably not make a huge impact on our economy but it is certainly a great start. Another way to raise wages that would impact thousands of people all over the nation would be to have CMS hold states accountable for paying a living wage to people who work in the HCBS Waiver…
  • A potentially internationally viable solution to global warming

    James Adams
    5 Jan 2014 | 12:34 am
    Mr. Obama, I have an Idea that is po tentially a two-fold solution to two separate problems here that are of international concern: global warming and international unemployment. My suggestion for you, Mr. President is this: That a unified international measure be taken against global warming through running a subglaceral, as opposed to subterranean, refrigeration system around and throughout both polar icecaps at absolute zero, Fahrenheit -468 degrees, first off. I believe that this step will, in and by itself, not only stop the shrinkage of the polar icecaps of the planet, it will also…
