Why not invent a "smart" Christmas tree - one capable of retaining its needles for twice the normal length of time?

My idea is to involve homeless people in city sightseeing tours. Who knows the city and its places to visit better than homeless people do? This seems to be beneficial for both tourists and homeless people: the first can learn interesting facts about the places they visit; the second receive an opportunity to earn a little money and communicate with people.

I wish we had a single web site with primary goal to help homeless people. The site would contain the full list of organizations helping such people, products and other stuff required to be donated. They could even have volunteers to come to your house and take things you wanted to donate. This would definitely make it easier for other people to contribute to charity as the majority simply didn't know where to go / what to donate / who to contact and so on.

What if the Government offered a tax credit to move closer to your job? This would reduce commuter traffic and air pollution. There would need to be a cap on the credits and some way to verify the move and change in distance.

Why not take your debt card; put your picture on it; and when you swipe it to pay for booze it will verify your age. I can't think of anyone that would give their debt card and pin to anyone, plus it has your photo on it.

Have the government give taxpayers access to an internet tax return form with all the sources of income that it knows about already entered into it. It already knows all or most of your sources of income because it receives copies of your tax forms. You would only need to fill in any extra things that the government doesn't know about, if any, and then click submit and your taxes would be filed. That would take just minutes. The computer would calculate how much refund you get....

Our founding fathers were exceptionally wise to ensure a separation of church and state. Now that enormous power lies in the business and financial world, we now see the results of too close relationships between large corporations and our own US government. The American people should demand Separation of Business and State.

I propose eliminating the U.S. House of Representatives, and replacing it with an online "Concordance of Delegates", as a means of minimizing corruption and making our legislature more representative. The following would apply to the "COD": 1) The delegates would communicate with one another and vote online from their homes, rather than meeting in a single location. 2) One delegate would be elected for every 5,000 voters. The current congressional districts would be...

As shown by ancient Greek and Roman writers such as Polybius, and the American Founding Fathers in the Federalist Papers, historically the most stable forms of government have featured a strong executive, provided stability for the elite, and functions to serve the masses. The best way to do this would be to randomly select a "House of Representatives" from a pool of ANYONE who wanted the job, and to sell the seats in the "Elite Senate" to the highest bidders, NO MATTER who they are or...

During Daylight Savings Time clocks are turned forward an hour, effectively moving an hour of daylight from the morning to the evening. Unfortunately this steals an hour of daylight just before Halloween, and greatly increases the danger to the millions of little children who are rushing the streets in search of candy, while their fathers are madly rushing home to help pass out the goodies, It would make Halloween much safer for the children and put less stress on the fathers to...
