What do you think about this solution to our economy? Sounds good to me!

Dear Mr. President,There's about 40 million people over 50 in the work force; pay them $1 million apiece severance with two stipulations if they are citizens:1) They leave their jobs. Forty million job openings - Unemployment fixed.2) They buy NEW American cars. Forty million cars ordered - Auto Industry fixed.
BUD 28:

Billy, be sure to let us know what "Mr. President" says.

.......:

That would require that the replacement workers have experience, education and job skills. Visit a fast food place. Look behind the counter. See any "kids" or even "college" kids working to earn some money? No. It's people that must work to pay the rent and bills. Employees are now trying to get retired workers back for some jobs as they aren't enough skilled people to replace them.

......,....,:

you know that would work ,its makes a whole lot more sense than borrowing money from another country and worry about... ifn china is going to own our souls .....the money would stay here and every one would have a job even tho its like forced retirement it could work .there are some that love to work and -money that much money --would not entice them at all .my husband is a workaholic and it would kill him to have to retire .........................god bless ya ..working makes some men stand taller

BILLYKID:

Yes it does, grammaw.

D?d?b:

The China issue is very worrysome!

2 Cents:

gramma. I hate to say this, but we are so enamored of cheap stuff made in china and other countries that we have put ourselves out of business for way too long. it seems as though Americans AND the factories did it to themselves. The manufacturers didn't pay enough attention when the first VW bug was imported here. They didn't cater to the thrifty customers that like a bargain, like to save money. Yet the unions were in the mix, and they didn't help much by DEMANDING more and more benefits. The unions made this country, and are breaking it, at the same time, and not many people realize it, yet, even. I don't blame the unions or the \manufacturers, we did it to ourselves.
And all of a sudden we are paying the piper. I agree with you and Billy. THE UNITED STATES HAS TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO SAVE ITSELF...... I wish I knew what the answer is.. i like Billy's though, it would be a miracle. Should be mandatory that they spend the money HERE!

......,....,:

fire and ice ,i have the china syndrome ....every thing that i pick up is made in china .i get a feeling in the pit of my stomach if my purse says made in china ...what the hay ....why is this ...this needs to stop ,.....god bless ya ..i am sure there are some way to start a purse factory here, because ,i would like to buy american made only heck our under wear comes from mexico good grief ,its just not the unions ,unions can be voted out and they would if the people knew they would lose their jobs to mexico ,they moved these factories out because a mexican will work for peanuts .....its greed that killed us .....god bless ya

D?d?b:

Great idea- if only it were that simple :-)

BILLYKID:

I wish it could be done.

D?d?b:

You should run for office, Billy!

BILLYKID:

OH YEAH, that would happen!

Bewitched:

If only it were that simple, Billy. How about this.
Dear President,
The war on drugs in fruitless. The American taxpayers have spent billions over more than three decades to fight a war that cannot be won. Instead, it has been more of a war on Americans and the lifestyles they choose for themselves than on narcotics. Illicit drug use has gone up rather than down. Decriminalize narcotics, make them and distribute them in this country and tax them. The taxes can be used to buy up toxic assets (which appear to be more toxic than the drugs themselves), so our country can get up and running like it should be. Moreover, this would lessen the violence in Mexico, so we would not have to pump money into their country and others to fight this meaningless war.
Thank You
Blixa

2 Cents:

Blixa, we should talk. I'd like to anyway, because you have a handle on one of the biggest problems in the USA. Why don't you and Billy run for president and vice president.. draw straws to see who gets to be president in charge; I think that we could find enough people here on QnA to fill the whole cabinet!

Bewitched:

Oh boy, I don't think this country is ready for nuts like Billy and I lol. Thank you for the compliment though!
I live right next to murder city, that being Juarez , Mexico. Tons of drugs are caught here every year either coming into this country or found in "stash houses" all over this city. Non violent drug offenders are arrested on a daily basis here. It is absolutely ridiculous considering that only a small portion of drugs are found and seized.

D?d?b:

Another good plan! Too bad none of these things will ever happen.

Bewitched:

I know. That's sad part, ddb.

BILLYKID:

Oh yeah, ME run for office? THEY CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!

Underdog:

That is great !!
I like the plan,
and the baby boomers would be set, and their kids may not have to worry about about their parents,, which will lead to less stress which equals less heart attacks and strokes.
Which will help improve the health care at the same time.

maybe add $250,000 if they are a vet!! (must have served at least 15 years)

BILLYKID:

15 years? Why? A vet is a vet!

Shenandoah:

yeah, really, Billy!

Underdog:

opps!! sorry I was thinking of something else when I had type..
I was thinking of a court case and the sentence the guy had got.

Mtn? G?L N?rma:

Hey, works for me!

BILLYKID:

Mornin, Norma.

Mtn? G?L N?rma:

Morning Sweetie

~Behind<3BlueEyes:

Good morning Billy, where do I sign up?

BILLYKID:

Mornin, BBE. That's what I'd like to know. Where's my check?

Shenandoah:

That would be very nice, Podnah, but what if you don't drive?

BILLYKID:

TOUGH, ya gotta buy a car anyway!! That's the rules!! heh eh, Hi Podnah. Good to see ya.

Shenandoah:

Same here. I guess I could give it away as a Christmas present for my daughter--Help out the USPS too, I guess. She lives in Italy...

Seth:

That's not a bad idea. The concept seems solid and could be applied to other areas as well. I think you should send it to D.C.

BILLYKID:

I bet I wouldn't get MY million though.

________________________:

That sounds great Billykid. Wish it could be done but this Washington political system we have would never do something as simple as that. They like controversy and like paying themselves big bonuses and retirement funds and of course the best medical care available.

BILLYKID:

You got that right, girl! Thanks.

Glenda:

The 2 parts sound good, however you forgot about the healthcare part, which people would lose in quitting their jobs, which alot do thrugh their employment, need to add one more about fixing healthcare, $ 1 million is alot, but would not go far in healthcare, thanks President BTK, has a good ring to it,

BILLYKID:

Pres BTK,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,hmmmmmmmm. Don't sound bad, except that it IS! Heh heh, besides, those are the initials of that murderer that just went to prison.

Glenda:

Oh my gosh President BK, i 'm sorry, I will drop the T.
