USA/Mexico Border Wall: Crowd Funding

I suggest a government ran website that will allow American citizens to donate their own money to offset the cost of the USA/Mexico Border Wall. The website does not have to be for just the Border Wall. It should also allow citizens the oppurtunity to donate to a variety of other important government projects. When someone donates to any of the causes listed on the site they can receive a mailed official certificate... more »

Border Wall and How to pay

After viewing the proposed wall designs it is apparent most of these entries have never spent much time on the border. I grew up on the border and have ranched along the border. I have attached a design that is feasible, will create jobs and use existing production capacity.

Besides Sen Cruz's funding proposal to use El Chapo's assets I would suggest putting a 20% EXPORT TAX on US CURRENCY being wired "home" (to MX... more »

Augmented Intelligence

As a whole we have a gluttony of different technologies from common operational pictures, GIS maps, decade old form based applications and new comers like social media monitoring. We as an industry have not embraced technology and the lifesaving benefits that comes from well implemented solutions. Augmented intelligence, systems that enhance human capabilities can make the operator in the seat as smart as possible. Streamlining... more »

Arab Christian Immigrants: A Sad Story of Oppression in the Middle East and Unfair Treatment By The US Travel Ban

The rise of Islamic extremism has been a singular driving force in the plight of religious minorities, fueling a growing desire to resort to religion as a palliative. Although Christians have lived in the Middle East - the birthplace of Christianity - for nearly two thousand years, as a result of years of persecution and discrimination, especially in the past 15 years, they now constitute no more than 3-4% of the region’s... more »

Emergency Communication with no power and mass population methods of rapid delivery

How effective would AM radios be for the long term power outage to assist with communication from the responders and the population?
Some extra batteries and built with GPS chips in them would afford some additional help with the use of drones, but at the very least helicopters can of course drop packages that contain supplies and the radios. This has probably already been done or included in supply drops but if not... more »
