  13. The Proposal When a company falls on difficult times, one of the things that seems to happen is they reduce their staff and workers. The remaining workers must find ways to continue to do a good job or risk that their job would be eliminated as well. Wall street and the media normally congratulate the CEO for making this type of "tough decision", and the board of directors gives upper corporate management big bonuses.. Our government should not be immune from similar risks. Therefore: Reduce the House of Representatives from the current435 members to 218 members. Reduce Senate members from 100 to 50 (one per State). Then, reduce their remaining staff by 25%. Accomplish this over the next 8 years (two steps/two elections) and of course this would require some redistricting. Some Yearly Monetary Gains Include: $44,108,400 for elimination of base pay for congress. (267 members X $165,200 pay/member/ yr.) $437,100,000 for elimination of their staff. (Estimate $1.3 Million in staff per each member of the House, and $3 Million in staff per each member of the Senate every year) $108,350,000 for the reduction in remaining staff by 25%. $7,500,000,000reduction in pork barrel earmarks each year. (Those members whose jobs are gone. Current estimates for total government pork earmarks are at$15 Billion/yr). The remaining representatives would need to work smarter and improve efficiencies. It might even be in their best interests to work together for the good of our country! We may also expect that smaller committees might lead to a more efficient resolution of issues as well. It might even be easier to keep track of what your representative is doing. Congress has more tools available to do their jobs than it had back in 1911 when the current number of representatives was established. (Telephone, computers, cell phones to name a few) Note: Congress does not hesitate to head home for extended weekends, holidays and recesses, when what the nation needs is a real fix for economic problems. Also, we had 3 senators who were not doing their jobs for the 18+ months (on the campaign trail) and still they all accepted full pay. Minnesota survived very well with only one senator for the first half of this year. These facts alone support a reduction in senators and congress. Summary of opportunity: $44,108,400 reduction of congress members. $282,100,000 for elimination of the reduced house member staff. $150,000,000 for elimination of reduced senate member staff. $70,850,000 for 25% reduction of staff for remaining house members. $37,500,000 for 25% reduction of staff for remaining senate members. $7,500,000,000 reduction in pork added to bills by the reduction of congress members. $8,084,558,400 per year, estimated total savings. (That's 8-BILLION just to start!) Corporate America does these types of cuts all the time. There's even a name for it. "Downsizing." ------------------------------ Also, if Congresspersons were required to serve 20, 25 or 30 years (like everyone else) in order to collect retirement benefits, taxpayers could save a bundle. Now they get full retirement after serving only ONE term.
  14. Musings for the New Year 1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die. 2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong. 3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger. 4. There is great need for a sarcasm font. 5. Was learning cursive really necessary? 6. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood. 7. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired. 8. Bad decisions make good stories. 9. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blu Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again. 10. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to. 11. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call. 12. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay. 13. I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option. 14. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger. 15. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a damn word they said? 16. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters! 17. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever. 18. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is. 19. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey—but I'd bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time. 20. The first testicular guard, the "Cup," was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important. OK; Now go out there and heal the past, live the present, and dream the future. Have a great Weekend!! “We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.” --Mother Teresa "Not every day will be sunny. Some days you're the pigeon; some days you're the statue." --Jimmy John
