Problem solving

Simple Solutions: One of my internet friends sent  solutions for some of our current problems.
We seem to be having a few problems in this country lately: illegal immigration, hurricane recovery, alligators attacking people in Florida...
Not me, I concentrate on solutions for the problems. It's a win-win situation
  •  Dig a moat the length of the mexican border.
  • Send the dirt to New Orleans to raise the level of the levies.
  • Put the Florida alligators in moat along the Mexican border.
Do You have another problem? How about :
  • Cows
  • The Constitution
  • The Ten Commandments
Cows: is it just me, or does any else find it amazing that during the mad cow epedemic our government could track a single cow, born in Canada almost 3 years ago, right to the stall where she slept in the state of Washington?  And they tracked her calves to their stalls. But they were unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around the country that could speak very little or no English. Perhaps we should give every one of them a cow.
Constitution: They keep talking about drafting a constitution for Iraq.  Why don't we just give them ours?  It was written by a lot of real smart people.  It worked for over 200 years, and we are not using it any more.
The 10 Commandments: The reason we cannot have the 10 commandments posted in the courthouse is this: You cannot post "thou shall not steal, thou shall not lie, thou shall not commit adultery" in a building full of lawyers, judges, and politicians.  It creates a hostile work environment for them.

My personal thoughts: Sometimes the solutions seem so simplistic.
People are getting laid off left and right as the infrastructure of this country crumbles.
fixit!!: hire the laid off people to fix the infrastructure. I am sure there are a few people who could use the work and are very highly skilled.
The banks are in deep trouble because they made stupid mortgages.
fixit!!!: You don't have to a financial genius to figure out that all these foreclosures are not good for the banks or the homeowners. Why don't the financial institutions and the home owners make a deal with the aid of the government.  How about a make loans to people who are qualified and not with those reverse legalese trimester balloon type upside down transbiforated convoluted mortgage note from the National Bank of Confusion.
fixit!!!: Wall Street ripoff artist. They shouldn't be in Jail. They should be under the jail. (Thank you Dr. Phil).  All their possession should be confiscated and sold. That is a good start.
 Just a thought: How about this. Their first year in prison they could live in a cardboard box and eat dog food and have Rush Limbaugh tapes playing over the radio 24/7.
Oh, I'm sorry. Yes, listening to Rush 24/7 is cruel and unusual punishment.  
How about if I throw in Bill Reilly on weekends?
