Federal California

Splitting California is popular, because the state is too large to govern as a single entity. However, splitting California into separate states is not feasible due to political impracticability and the fact that several of the regions are not economically self-sufficient. Instead, California should adopt a federal system, where regions are ceded some decision making and tax authority from Sacramento. To avoid more ...more »

Get rid of Caltrans & improve your commute

Bring innovation and efficiency to your commute by ending the government's auto industry subsidy of building, maintaining, and policing the roads which the auto industry should be building, maintaining and policing. If you need a freeway for you hot rod Lincoln, then Ford should build it and allocate those costs into the price of your car. With this in mind, fixing California's failing transportation infrastructure ...more »

Curb Percolation

Parkways and medians are refitted with manufactured mini aquifers that hold runoff from adjacent curbs. This lessons the load on the catch basins and returns some of the seepage back to the direction existing prior to the flawed design incorporated to divert it to the ocean after being contaminated. It would also lesson the need for irrigation of parkways and medians while providing local jobs.

Ideas Should Pay Off

In the state of California if you work for the state and you make a suggestion that saves the state money you get rewarded, unless you work for the CSU or University of Cal system. Open the program for all and you may get many more good ideas.

Outlaw 2 year cell phone contracts

We broke up the phone companies because they were a monopoly. The cell phone companies are a monopoly now. It is a restraint of trade to force customers to sign a 2 year contract. It has nothing to do with the service you receive it is just the cell phone company capturing you for 2 years with stiff penalties if you cancel. And really its just Verizon, Sprint, AT and T-Mobile. Where is the incentive to provide good service ...more »

A Regional Rehabilitation Fix for Prop 47, AB 109

Prop 47 backers have admitted that the alleged funding generated from the measure will not be made available until 2017. In the meantime, over 10,000 inmates who had had their felony sentences reduced to misdemeanors have been released with no incentive to seek rehabilitation. With so many formerly convicted individuals being released onto the streets, communities should be concerned about their safety. An analysis conducted ...more »

3 Californias

Instead of creating 6 new states, what about just 3? Jefferson, Northern California, and Southern California? Seems like a simpler solution and something more people could get behind.

ferrets saved my life

I was in a terrible hit and run motorcycle accident many years ago. I purchased two ferrets to keep me company in my time of depression and pain. They are the most loving and kind animals I have ever owned. There was no risk of them trying to run away, they just wanted to be around me at all times. My biggest fear was them getting out somehow and getting eaten by a coyote or a cat. The fact is, they are not a threat to ...more »

No more professional politicians

Legislators in our state (our country) have an unspoken but clearly evident drive to be reelected or to move to a higher office. This desire biases every bill they vote on because they need to raise money for the next election. Also professional politicians have the advantage of running campaigns while they are "working for the public". No other citizen has that ability. The proposed referendum will mandate the following ...more »
