kecksburg

I think that there should be a review on the comments made at the kecksburg site on December 5, 1965. The government officials should at least consider and vote on releasing full disclosure of what happened in kecksburg that night. If there are aliens then we should know now! If there aren't any aliens and the witnesses were lying and it was just a satelite or meteor they should present it to the public to prove their ...more »

Human Rights

I have many concerns about human rights in our country. The latest law signed by the governor of AZ is one recent example that does not bode well for our country. The Patriot Act is another of my concerns-and it should be done away with. Then there is the rise of militant right wing groups that make open threats and also more subtle threats by the act of carrying weapons.The "War on Drugs" is another concern of mine. ...more »

State Dept's PRM refugee website information

The State Department's Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM) offers very little information on the State Department website about how the domestic part of the U.S. refugee resettlement program works. Of course, lack of information is the antitheses of an “open” federal government unit. Missing are comprehensive basic rules and of the program. For example, how much money is provide to resettlement agencies? ...more »

Improving our image in the world

I am a naturalized citizen. I have been to atleast 6 US embassies in different parts of the world - Canada, Mexico, UK, Sri Lanka. One common theme in all of them is the way they treat people as criminals or second class human beings. President Obama's philosophy is to treat people in the world as equals. There is a easy way to implement and promote this image. And that is by having good customer service at the ENTRANCE ...more »

Passport acceptance at Foriegn Embassies

Dear Sate Dept

There is a new disturbing trend which is started by Indian embassy in Dc of NOT accpeting US passport from US citizens of certain backgrounds. As our visa system is based on reciprocacy, my idea is to start a initiative that ensures ALL US Citizens get to travel of their US passport. If som country does not accepts our passport, we should be agressive in getting that fixed.

Thank you

Hi, Thanks for allowing citizens to provide feedback on your new OpenGov System. This is a great example of how democratic systems can improve not only information literacy at the state level, but also to improve collaboration at the federal level. As always, communicating change to the masses is often one of the state's toughest challenges, and with the OpenGov system, this may alleviate some of these barriers. ...more »

Edit wikipedia; or give away your research so the public can.

Other government agencies should take a cue from the NIH, which has started to edit Wikipedia pages relating to health issues: http://nihrecord.od.nih.gov/newsletters/2009/09_04_2009/story2.htm When a small amount of information is added to Wikipedia, it is like planting a seed; other people come along and add water, and everyone shares the fruit. Wikipedia editors today have high standards; they write professionally ...more »

Other OpenGov Ideas & Information Resources

Rather than post each of my "OpenGov" Ideas at 27 different websites, I have posted them at the GSA's website (since they are in the forefront of the OpenGov initiative). So, by this notice, the members of the OpenGov Team for your agency have been informed of those ideas. (At least, now, you can't say you were unaware of them.) http://opengsa.ideascale.com/a/pmd/29640-6960 ALSO -- Your OpenGov Team members, ...more »
