    The politicians debating how to send back more quickly the kids fleeing violence in Central America are little more than cowardsIn the United States, it seems that childhood is a privilege afforded to only certain people. We only recently ended juvenile executions and still practice juvenile life without parole; we are a country that lets children go without food and water; we are a nation that purports to welcome "your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free" only to stack up the juvenile poor like cord wood in euphemistically-named government "detention…

    I am a low income, lower class 34 year old mom of 3,and I have an idea for all of our government to consider. Instead of worrying about all these other countries and helping the people in them, how about focusing our resources and abilities on our very own country. Our country is far from perfect, and there are quite a few things that need to be fixed and people who need to be helped right here on our very own soil…..After we fix ourselves then, maybe, we could attempt to try to help others see things our way, and show them how smooth it is working for us. But as we sit right now our…

    I have a simple humane solution to resolve housing the border children. Operation Kid Drop – In a nutshell load them up in a cargo plane like the ones used for transporting troops and fly them back to the capitals of each of the countries they came from. This is very humane and they will be back in their own country having been safely removed from ours. This will cost less than housing them here and discourage further illegal immigration to the U.S. Location: El Dorado Hills, CA

    I would suggest that you eliminate the patient satisfaction criteria for the valuation of healthcare facilities. Healthcare facilities spending enormous amount of money trying to prove that they are creating patient satisfaction to fulfill government regulation. Millions of surveys are sent out in an attempt to prove this to the government. Very few of them are filled out and the people that fill them out are very rarely satisfied. This leads to a few dissatisfied customers directing an entire health care system for the rest of us. When did we ever consider something is nebulous as…

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.
