My mom I think would make it illegal to argue while driving.







333 times 12 is equal to 3996







3996 times 65 is equal to 259740







Website Type A is a company website that have legal to purchase downloadable midi (.mid) music.







Website Type B is a website that the owner of the website does pay owner of Website Type A at least $333 per month.







Whether by PayPal or mailed in cash or mailed in check or other payment

as long as Website Type B owner pays Website Type A owner at least $333 per month

then Website Type B owner is permitted to have on any website for free downloadable .mid







But ^ Website Type B owner must let Website Type A owner know of what websites will contain .mid






Downloading any .mid from Website Type B is legal.







Using any .mid downloaded from Website Type B is legal.







Broadcasting any .mid downloaded from Website Type B is legal.







Recording any .mid downloaded Website Type B is legal.







Publishing any .mid downloaded from Website Type B is legal.







Reason for such laws is because there are plenty of copyrighted

but people both want to use such .mid

and also have trouble paying for such .mid sometimes

so by Website Type B owner paying Website Type A owner

then Website Type A owner can still use some of the money to pay needed payments

and also people can now much easier get needed .mid especially if having trouble buying .mid

and also of course people who can buy .mid from Website Type A can still of course buy .mid from Website Type A

I'd make much harsher and quicker punishments for cyberbullying (and bullying in general but cyberbullying is taken especially too lax despite having tragic rl consequences).

I'd equal out the punishments between men and women for same crimes. i.e. no more women getting very soft sentences for crimes of same nature like sexassault etc. and generally make those aforementioned types of crimes a much harsher sentence. Especially if perpetuated against children.

I'd make healthcare a right, since it should be a right. And grant more help to people with disabilities so they can finally get ahead of living off the government instead of being trapped. (currently it is almost a crime to be disabled in the USA, we are treated very poorly by the system)

weird post structure, and the user shows a trend of sound posts right before this one.
I'm reporting this, in case the account has been hijacked by a bot.


scratch that.
I'm putting the chance of bot closer to 80% now, after some digging.

....yeah, most definitely bot, most likely a forgotten account that was hijacked.

I would make laws stating cyber bullying is fake.

And, FYI, 'cyber bullying' is not the same as things that can get drawn into real life ie. actual credible threats.

What is one's definition of 'cyber bullying' and 'bullying'. It is rather hard to get people to even agree with 'cyber bulling' (let alone real life bullying) is. Laws that leave it up to interpetation are weak laws because they are abuseable.

By, some definition, I have been 'cyber bullied'. Hell, I've been threaten with rape, murder, and worse. I laugh it off. Should those who do that be locked up? Nah.


As for other laws: I'd get rid of seatbelt laws altogether (maybe keep them up for underager). Their body their choice. PERIOD.

Drinking should be legal at age 18 - the same age it is legal to join the army and kill people on behalf most countries. If you are old enough to be trusted with a gun, you are old enough to be trusted with a beer.

Pedophiles - I mean actual pedophiles (not 20 somehings haviNg sex with 16 year olds which I don't approve of). Their lives would be forfeit. there is no excuse for sexually molesting little babies.

Those found guilty of rape, cold blooded murder, and other heinous crimes would have longer sentences. PERIOD.

Spousal support should be eradicated. It should not be a thing. marriage is about two people coming together. Diviorce is about two people separating. We would force the separated parties into having sex but it seems it is fine to force one to pay the other money? You are an adult. Grow up, and get a job.

Father/Male style abortion. The father of a child should have the right to 'legally abort' their child - this means willingly surrendering all rights *and* responsibilities of fatherhood. No take backs either. There would be time limited based on when they found out about said child.

I would make laws stating the gov't can't tell me what I can or cannot put in my mouth/body. PERIOD. That means ALL drugs are legal, no limitations on sugar/food portions. Less gov't telling me the 'right way to live the better'.

If I'm not hurting anyone stay out of my business. On that note, if someone does drugs or drinks or whatever and then hurts someone they should not be given a lesser sentence.

There is so many things that require changing to help the masses. Without making anything political as that is banned in the forums, I would change how people, websites, and companies are held accountable. There is way too many lies and libel online, and accountability would assist in changing that. How that would be accomplished precisely though, I am unsure. Laws need to be changed for the digital age.

legalize maryJane on the whole world,without lizenses ect
(free to grow for everybody)

In Cases where rape is heavely prooven because of Videos or other Valid proofs, the punischment should be Castraction
(no matter if the criminal is rich or not, and no matter where the criminal comes from)

A Law that forbids to print money out of nothing.
(bring gold and silver coins back)

A Law that forbids to waste Food while people are starving
(food that is near to getting "to old" should be availleble for free ,minimum 1 week before it gets "trash")

I stop here because that list could be endless,there are a lot of things in the world that are corrupted and it would take days to make a "full list" of the most important things.
(also this forum isnt the place for that anyway)

(@ Mods feel free to delete everything if i was allready to "politcal")

Dishonesty in business & politics would be a federal offense with a prison sentence no less than 10 years. Full transparency is both fields would be mandatory. I'd also put a stop to this mass-surveillance nonsense & charge everyone involved from George W. Bush & Obama to every member of the NSA for putting forth the Patriot Act & the mass-surveillance program PRISM.

This. And as technology continues to evolve, those laws should be required to evolve with it in a fair and balanced sort of way.

Companies earning over a ceratin amount of profit annually (in the millions at least) would be forced to split a certain percentage share of the profits with the employees instead of pocketing it and giving huge bonuses to the people at the top.

1. Marriage is illegal. You like someone enough to live with them and have children with them and share your life with them, there's no need for a contract or legal binding anything. When you leave, you take what's yours and be grown adults in splitting everything else equally.

2. Fathers can give up their parental rights. Doing so means they can never be held accountable for their children, so they no longer have to pay child support. If a woman can give up her child for adoption and never has to pay child support for it, then it should be equal with the men.

3. If your child commits a crime while 18 or under and still lives with their parents, those parents will be charged as "accessory" to that crime. They should know what their kids are up to. If they don't, they're bad parents. They should know when little Johnny is planning to shoot up his school and alert the police. Parents will pay closer attention to their children and get involved in their lives as well as get to know them as people if it means they can be charged as accessories to murders, drugs, DUI, and anything else.

4. Riots should be labeled "acts of terrorism" and responded to with military force. No, I don't care what the Riot is about. No, I don't care who is involved. If you are setting fires and looting and threatening the peace and safety of other people, you deserve to be responded to with lethal force.

5. Charities should be illegal. Most of the money goes into the pockets of workers rather than where it's meant to go. It is very rare that any charity isn't an outright scam. You don't need money to help people, you just need to provide opportunities for people to help themselves. Or, you know, help people with your own money rather than asking other people give theirs.

6. I'd make laws about executions. No more sitting on Death Row for 50 years waiting to be executed. You get ONE YEAR to make all your appeals and find evidence of your innocence. If you don't manage to do it, then you get executed. I would rather we accidently kill a few innocent people than let murderous psychopaths live off the taxpayer's dime for their entire lifetimes with a possibility of escape or to do their heinous acts again. No more "life in prison" either unless we're talking, "someone tortures you for 50 years until you die of old age". Let's stop spending money on people who don't deserve it. Likewise, jail should be a terrible place to go with almost nothing to do. It should be hell on earth. If it isn't, it isn't a deterrent to people who commit crimes. Yes, I know it won't deter everyone. It isn't meant to. But, it will deter people who commit minor crimes.

7. Women found to have been "making it up" when making sexual allegations should be given the sentence the man would've received had he been convicted. She should have to register as a sex offender and tell everyone in the neighborhood she moves into who she is and what she did. She should also get the full stay in prison for doing so. I am in favor of putting scumbag men into prison for their terrible crimes, but I'm also in favor of making sure people aren't abusing the law just because they think they should be able to for power or revenge.

8. "Future Tech" legislation. I would enact a policy that cover 25 "Future Techs" or "Future Goals" for the species. These would be opportunities for businesses (and not the government) to create technology humanity has only dreamed of. Colonies on the moon and mars. Teleporters. "Tricorders". Faster than Light spaceships. Completely green energy sources that output as much power as as the polluting ones with a far smaller footprint. Flying cars. "Full Dive" video games (100% immersive VR that simulates accurately 3 of the 5 senses). Cure for Cancer. Cure for AIDS. Etcetera. Any company that manages to hit one of these goals and maintain the rigorous stipulations (cures for the diseases would have to be either free or as affordable as medicine you buy at your local Walmart, for example) would have the luxury of paying 0 taxes to the government for the next 10 years and any employee who works for that company also pays no taxes for the next 10 years. Each item accomplished is removed and replaced with a new goal. If it is proven that something cannot ever be done (like say, Teleportation is actually impossible), then it will also count for the reward. This proof must take into account "no future technology could ever manage it either".

9. Every individual pays 10% of their income in taxes. No, I don't care how much you make. You do not get more money at tax time just because you've mismanaged your life. Pay your 10% and figure out how you should've spent and saved your money more wisely next time. If you have no income, you must donate 500 hours of community service to the government over the course of the year. Failure to complete the 500 hours will result in seizure of assets and jail time for tax evasion. This will be in the form of 8-5 jobs with an hour lunch. You will not be paid, but you will be fed and provided any necessary clothing for the job you are given. Children will be placed into Daycare facilities if they are too young to take care of themselves for 8 hours a day while the parents are working. There is no excuse for not working and paying your taxes. If Stephen Hawking could get a job, there's no excuse for anyone else other than "I'm incredibly lazy and use things as an excuse to not work".

10. Food stamps (EBT) will no longer exist. The government program will instead send you a month's supply of food based on amount of occupants in the household and age ranges of those occupants. Each occupant must show up and provide identification to the local government office at the time of applying for this service. If you're hungry, you get food. You don't get money you can spend on junk food, soda, and whatever else you want. You want money? Get a job. The government is obligated to help those who need a hand up. It is not obligated to help those who just want a hand out. In short, people with EBT will no longer be eating better than those who make $15-$20 an hour with a 40 hour work week. Learn to budget your food as practice for learning how to budget your money. Want to eat better food? Get a job and buy your own food.

11. You are subject to weekly drug screening when you are on any government assistance program. You are immediately removed from the assistance program if you are found to have any substance in your system that would hinder you from finding or keeping employment (this includes alcohol, and no, I don't care if they make every drug legal under the sun. If they would impair your ability to find and hold a job, too bad). Not only are you removed, but you cannot reapply for 3 years.

12. If you are in the country illegally, the laws of this country do not apply to you. You have no legal standing at all. If someone stabs you in an alley and you're an illegal immigrant, too bad for you. That person doesn't go to jail and you don't get medical treatment. You want the rights of people in our country, you come in the correct way. Likewise, any business found to be hiring illegal immigrants will be fined $30,000,000 for each instance as well as lose their business license and all management of that business will get put onto a "black list" so that they cannot apply for a business license again in the future. All identification will come with a photo-ID.

13. Everyone's DNA will be on file at birth. The DNA will be stored on file and in vial in designated facilities across the USA. When a vial would be degraded, it will be required to give another. The purpose of this program is to help law enforcement track down criminals who leave DNA at the scenes of crimes. There will no longer be criminals who "got away with it" because they were never in any database or known to anyone. The DNA Database will connect all the facilities and only the facilities. The records will be made public, but the DNA Database will be a "stand alone" system with no connection to any public server or access in order to prevent hacking. Giving your DNA for the purposes of aiding an investigation will be compulsory. Business agencies will not be allowed to ask a private citizen for their DNA. DNA information will be treated as "Private Health Information" and will be protected under HIPAA. Government employees found to be abusing the DNA Database (for example: Changing the files in order to frame someone for a crime) will be punished by execution if convicted.

14. Appliances and Electronics sold to consumers will be required to have a lifespan of at least 7 years without breaking under normal usage. No more "planned obsolescence". If an appliance or piece of electronics fails in less than 7 years, the company will be required to replace it for free, fix it for free, or prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the item in question stopped working because it was not "normal wear and tear".

15. Regulation of the Video Game industry. Games must work on launch. Game companies must have a plan for their games that are "online only" other than "they die and nobody can ever play them again". If they do not have a plan for the death of their online games, then they must refund the full purchase price of the game to every consumer who requests a refund as well as a refund of any money spent in game on cosmetics or anything else. Companies will be forced to patch a game for LAN play, singleplayer play, or release the source code so others can pick the game back up and host it on their own servers if they want to. It will be illegal to let games die or only create them with a 3 year lifespan in mind. It will also be legal to pirate any game that is not currently distributed and sold to consumers as there is no other way to obtain it. If a game company stops selling Pretty Ninja 5, it is now legal to pirate it. This also works for ports and "remasters". If you no longer sell the original version of Pretty Ninja 5, but have instead made a "Pretty Ninja 5 Remastered and Reloaded!" version, people can still pirate the original version of your game legally. If you don't think you can make money by leaving your entire catalog for sale, then you shouldn't have any problem with letting people pirate the game you no longer find it profitable to sell. Likewise, Loot Boxes will be made illegal. Gambling is for casinos. If you want to make money on gambling, open a casino. You also lose the rights to your IP if you haven't created any game of it in the last 5 years. It becomes "Public Domain" after that. Don't like it? Make games for the IP's you intend to hold onto then. Kill IP's that are no longer profitable and let them become freeware and Public Domain. Employees will be treated as they are in any other industry as well. No more "crunch time". If you can't figure out how to make a game in 3-5 years with a staff of 200, then that's a "you" problem. Employees should paid what they're worth and not overworked.

16. Elected officials will be paid minimum wage and receive no unnecessary perks. They will not get healthcare they do not pay personally for. They will also be required to disclose all of their financial information as well as any gifts or donations received from anyone while in office. They are there to serve the public and not to get a free ride amongst "the elite". They do not get personal cooks unless they pay for them on their own. They get a private plane only on official business. Same with security. If Joe Schmo wants to go down to the Golf Course, then he can pay for that himself and his security stays home.

17. Basic insurance will be illegal. Insurance should be in cases of catastrophic care. Suddenly get hit by a car and dying? Insurance should be to cover that. Getting the sniffles and needing some cough syrup? Pay for that yourself. Making Basic Insurance illegal and only having "Catastrophic Care" type coverage ensures healthcare prices drop since hospitals will have to charge what their patients actually have on hand, rather than what they can get away with from some third party company who is making a killing by covering these things. Insurance will only exist to cover things that would be outrageous for almost anyone to pay. Most of which would be filed under "life threatening" or "affects quality of life" rather than "basic care". Pay for your flu shot yourself. Pay for your broken leg yourself. Get cancer? Insurance gets involved. Become paralyzed and need to live in a wheelchair for life? Insurance gets involved.

Honestly, I'd just turn the whole country on its head. This is the "short list". My actual list is something like revision or creation of 3,200 some odd laws to fix a lot of issues in the country.

I like this law, parent's need to be more accountable/responsible for their kids. Certain cultures are better than others at this, but a certain standard wouldn't hurt.

9. Every individual pays 10% of their income in taxes. No, I don't care how much you make. You do not get more money at tax time just because you've mismanaged your life. Pay your 10% and figure out how you should've spent and saved your money more wisely next time.

There is no excuse for not working and paying your taxes. If Stephen Hawking could get a job, there's no excuse for anyone else other than "I'm incredibly lazy and use things as an excuse to not work".
There's a HUGE loophole w/ this. Someone could simply report they made $1 income and pay 10¢ for their taxes to avoid the 500hrs community service. Or they could use a more reasonable, but still low figure, such as $1,000 and pay only $100 in annual taxes.

12. If you are in the country illegally, the laws of this country do not apply to you. You have no legal standing at all. If someone stabs you in an alley and you're an illegal immigrant, too bad for you. That person doesn't go to jail and you don't get medical treatment. You want the rights of people in our country, you come in the correct way. Likewise, any business found to be hiring illegal immigrants will be fined $30,000,000 for each instance as well as lose their business license and all management of that business will get put onto a "black list" so that they cannot apply for a business license again in the future. All identification will come with a photo-ID.
What if the business was deceived by the applicant? Like if they hired an illegal immigrant thinking they were a citizen. Perhaps the employee had fake documentation or w/e. As a former restaurant owner, I've seen people go to extreme lengths to try and get a job/position.

I'm not saying these laws are bad, the loopholes simply need to be addressed 1st.

Nope. Let's keep going! :LZSrasp:

Make RPG Maker compulsory learning in school. (Totally serious.)

Remove prison sentence as punishment: If someone is found guilty of a crime, flog them 10-150 times. (Depending on the crime.) And then let them go.
There's no need to waste their time by keeping them in prison.
Publicly executed punishment for a publicly executed crime.
Death penalty if they commit a major crime. (Like intentionally murdering an innocent.)
Prison sentence only to keep the person captive, so they don't escape during their trial.


A closer eye on conflict of interest in science & research: Especially in this internet age, what is true has become extremely muddy for most. Truth now is what's marketed and repeated more, and not always what's factual.
Ideas, concepts, and knowledge that can bring in more money, end up becoming public truths. Even when they are false, or when they are harmful and outdated.
A law to fix and remove conflicts of interest when it comes to science and research and publication of information.


All laws rechecked for Independence from government: the goal of the government should be for it to not be needed anymore by its citizens. Every law should be considered, to check whether or not it's making the citizen dependent on the government.
If it is, then that law ought to be tweaked, or new laws need to be put in place, to lower that dependency.
Example: A government should not have to educate children. Parents, should. Laws should be put in place to create the sort of citizens for the next generation to be less dependent on government for education.

1. Marriage is illegal. You like someone enough to live with them and have children with them and share your life with them, there's no need for a contract or legal binding anything. When you leave, you take what's yours and be grown adults in splitting everything else equally.
You obviously don't understand any of the legal benefits from marriage, clearly. Say a long time couple with no kids die. Does the surviving partner inherit their estate? Or do the deceased's next of kin? And that's just one of the problems you're setting up with this boneheaded idea.

3. If your child commits a crime while 18 or under and still lives with their parents, those parents will be charged as "accessory" to that crime. They should know what their kids are up to. If they don't, they're bad parents.
If a tenant commits a crime and lives with roommates, those roommates will be charged as "accessory" to that crime. They should know what their roommates are up to. If they don't, they're bad roommates. I mean c'mon man, you can't actually think this is a good idea. This would require parents to violate their children's privacy constantly. Actually, it'd completely destroy the idea of privacy for anyone under the age of 18. Are parents supposed to be monitoring everything their kids do, 24/7, for their entire lives?
6. I'd make laws about executions. No more sitting on Death Row for 50 years waiting to be executed. You get ONE YEAR to make all your appeals and find evidence of your innocence.
You clearly don't understand how courts work. Believe it or not, most death row inmates don't want to spend decades waiting to find out their fates. Court systems are overworked and overloaded with cases, that's why appeals take so long. By putting a one year limit on death row appeals, you're just gonna bog down the appellate courts and hold up everything else. And the fact you'd rather kill a few innocent people than have actual justice take time reeks of bait, and if it isn't, then oh boy are you messed up.
7. Women found to have been "making it up" when making sexual allegations should be given the sentence the man would've received had he been convicted.
Strange how you single out women and false rape accusations here. Every developed country already has laws against filing false police reports or falsely accusing someone of a crime. I wonder why you'd single out this exceedingly rare occurence as if it's some actual issue. It's such a stupid idea, but at least be consistent and extend it to all crimes.
9. Every individual pays 10% of their income in taxes. No, I don't care how much you make. You do not get more money at tax time just because you've mismanaged your life.
Imagine thinking poor people are poor cause they've "mismanaged" their life. Flat taxes, in addition to being a terrible way to raise revenue for the state(aka the entire point of a tax), also tend to destroy social mobility and drive up poverty rates. Given how much you seem to hate people on welfare, the last thing you wanna do is drive more people onto it.
11. You are subject to weekly drug screening when you are on any government assistance program.
Florida tried this! It was insanely expensive, wasteful, and turned up very few people actually on drugs, so they killed the program very quickly. Turns out poor people care more about eating and having shelter than getting high. Then again, you clearly think very lowly of anyone in poverty, so I guess it's not surprising.
12. If you are in the country illegally, the laws of this country do not apply to you. You have no legal standing at all. If someone stabs you in an alley and you're an illegal immigrant, too bad for you.
This is such an astonishingly bad idea, you have to be trying to bait people. I'll bite. What's gonna stop companies from kidnapping and importing people from third world countries to be exploited under this system? Human trafficking is already an issue at this point, you're literally legalizing it with this program. Not to mention the complete and utter disregard for human life.
13. Everyone's DNA will be on file at birth. The DNA will be stored on file and in vial in designated facilities across the USA. When a vial would be degraded, it will be required to give another.
Besides being a massive invasion of privacy and stupidly expensive, you're just setting yourself up for failure on this one. Most unsolved crimes aren't unsolved for lack of DNA evidence, they're unsolved because of shoddy police work or because crime scenes go undiscovered for years, past the point where forensic evidence can solve crimes. Not to mention, how are you going to safeguard people's genetic information?
16. Elected officials will be paid minimum wage and receive no unnecessary perks. They will not get healthcare they do not pay personally for.
This is gonna do the exact opposite of what you want to do and just ensure the government is run by the wealthy, for the wealthy. Although given how you seem to view poor people, maybe that's the idea. Congress being payed minimum wage means only those wealthy enough to effectively not be payed for legislative work can afford to run for office. Say bye-bye to blue collar Americans holding office, and hello to corporate lawyers and CEO's running our country.
17. Basic insurance will be illegal. Insurance should be in cases of catastrophic care. Suddenly get hit by a car and dying? Insurance should be to cover that. Getting the sniffles and needing some cough syrup? Pay for that yourself. Making Basic Insurance illegal and only having "Catastrophic Care" type coverage ensures healthcare prices drop since hospitals will have to charge what their patients actually have on hand, rather than what they can get away with from some third party company who is making a killing by covering these things. Insurance will only exist to cover things that would be outrageous for almost anyone to pay.

Insurance gets involved. Become paralyzed and need to live in a wheelchair for life? Insurance gets involved.
This is a great way to kill the insurance industry. Insurance companies make bank by covering people who only need it for things like the sniffles or cough syrup. By making catastrophic events the only things covered by insurance, you're gonna drive everyone not at risk out of the pool and drive up costs for those who are, or who think they are, at risk. This will do the exact opposite of what you expect and lower quality of care and drive premium costs up.

Looks like @rainyday actually understands how the world works. ;)

Besides being a massive invasion of privacy and stupidly expensive, you're just setting yourself up for failure on this one. Most unsolved crimes aren't unsolved for lack of DNA evidence, they're unsolved because of shoddy police work or because crime scenes go undiscovered for years, past the point where forensic evidence can solve crimes. Not to mention, how are you going to safeguard people's genetic information?
This is especially true in the age of information, where such personal info/data has value. DNA should be YOUR property, not anyone else's, and certainly not the government's.

As someone who holds a Life & Health Insurance license, I just want to say that Life Insurance policies, particularly IUL (indexed universal life) policies, are actually used primarily as an investment vehicle and not typically purchased for the insurance features. The insurance part of the policies is really just icing on the cake and so that these policies technically fall under the category of insurance and not other financial commodities. So yea, I concur...don't kill the insurance industry, they do more than just insurance.

11. You are subject to weekly drug screening when you are on any government assistance program. You are immediately removed from the assistance program if you are found to have any substance in your system that would hinder you from finding or keeping employment (this includes alcohol, and no, I don't care if they make every drug legal under the sun. If they would impair your ability to find and hold a job, too bad). Not only are you removed, but you cannot reapply for 3 years.
Dumb idea and such a waste of resources. Plus, anything and everything could be argued to "impair your ability to find and hold a job". It's simply too open to interpretation. Someone with crazy high tolerance wouldn't be impaired at all for instance. That cough syrup you took cuz you had a cold? Well, it causes drowsiness so no EBT for you! Sodium levels too high? No EBT for you! Also, even plain H2O can kill you in the right quantities.

Also, I do want to add an actual law (not a Law of Physics lol): UBI!!
UBI = Universal Basic Income, meaning every citizen gets $x cash per month from the government, no questions asked. Andrew Yang suggested a figure of $1,000/month per person under this "Freedom Dividend" plan. It's the most efficient way of distributing the country's wealth.

Also, what's w/ all the hate on welfare and the idea that everyone should "work hard"? Imo we should strive for a utopian society where NOBODY has to work since we'd be a post-scarcity civilization. That should be the goal anyway since that's obviously a long way off. But the idea that we need to work harder is silly; we should be working smarter instead. For instance, I don't "work" per se...instead I do stock options to earn my living. I literally don't need to get off my ass to make money. Granted, sometimes I screw up and lose money, but that's just me not working "smart" enough. Did I mention I also have EBT & MediCal benefits? MediCal covers what would otherwise have been a $300/month bill. Oh, and the government pays me over $500/month to look after my 90yo grandma at home (even though she's really the one looking after me haha). I just love her cooking! The program is called IHSS (In Home Supportive Services). So yea, the government is basically giving me ~$1,000/month value (IHSS = $500, MediCal = $300, EBT = $200). And no, I am not ashamed to be on any of these programs. In fact, I take pride in the fact that I've taken advantage of "the system" to such a degree. It's that same feeling you get when you find something you wanted on sale at the store (or on Steam) and you go like "hell yea!" lol.

I wholeheartedly agree and endorse this law!

Cigarettes are illegal. Smoking weed is mandatory. Wall Street is seized as public land, bull dozed, and replaced with a roller coaster mall and a sick 90's arcade, free admission. Also, anyone who doesn't buy my game has to pay a fine. The fines pay for upkeep of Roller Coaster Mall Street.

You obviously don't understand any of the legal benefits from marriage, clearly. Say a long time couple with no kids die. Does the surviving partner inherit their estate? Or do the deceased's next of kin? And that's just one of the problems you're setting up with this boneheaded idea.

I'm a man, there are zero legal benefits to being married. Also, there's such a thing as "leaving a will", which is what married parties have to do anyway, even with "next of kin". Your children do not automatically inherit anything you didn't will to them. Likewise, "notifying next of kin" has little to do with being married in the first place.

The only legal benefits to being married are... um... taxes. But, you know, I'd rather pay the lower rate of filing single than jointly. All other benefits of being married only apply to women. Why do you think a lot of men are refusing to get married any more? There's no benefit to doing so and a ton of things that make it not worth doing.

If a tenant commits a crime and lives with roommates, those roommates will be charged as "accessory" to that crime. They should know what their roommates are up to. If they don't, they're bad roommates. I mean c'mon man, you can't actually think this is a good idea. This would require parents to violate their children's privacy constantly. Actually, it'd completely destroy the idea of privacy for anyone under the age of 18. Are parents supposed to be monitoring everything their kids do, 24/7, for their entire lives?

Parents are meant to be raising their children to be responsible adults. If they did their job, they don't have to destroy their privacy. If they aren't doing their job, then they would have to destroy their privacy. Raising a child correctly isn't all that difficult. Well, unless you're a lazy parent who just plops their kids down in front of the TV, Video Games, iPad, or whatever to get them out of your hair as often as possible rather than spending time with them.

My parents gave me an extreme amount of leeway in my life and a lot of privacy. But, I never got in trouble with the law. I didn't drink underage. I didn't do drugs. I didn't go out and cause trouble. Why? Because from a young age, my parents involved me in just about everything they did and spent the time to teach me how the world worked, what was expected of me by society, and punished me when I'd done wrong.

It's a very good idea and it will at least get the lazy parents to do their jobs rather than just having kids for the sake of having them and then being negligent and turning those kids loose on the world. The only people who wouldn't like this law are those that want to be lazy parents.

You clearly don't understand how courts work. Believe it or not, most death row inmates don't want to spend decades waiting to find out their fates. Court systems are overworked and overloaded with cases, that's why appeals take so long. By putting a one year limit on death row appeals, you're just gonna bog down the appellate courts and hold up everything else. And the fact you'd rather kill a few innocent people than have actual justice take time reeks of bait, and if it isn't, then oh boy are you messed up.

I'm sorry, but I believe in "the most happiness for the most people possible". I'm very utilitarian. If it requires our society mistakenly execute a few people innocent of the accused crimes in order to execute the vast majority of dangerous people in our society, then I'm in favor. No, I wouldn't even mind if I happened to be one of those executed as "an innocent".

Also, a lot of death row inmates file endless appeals in order to keep themselves from being executed. If they were to just accept their fates, they'd never file an appeal at all. Don't be ridiculous.

File your appeals in a year, set your court dates, have your trials, and if you fail, executed anyway. It's not a difficult concept to grasp.

It also wouldn't hurt to have some means of putting in an "express lane" in our court system for all other stuff.

Though, the less appeals you have going through the system, the less work there is going to be to do... so... you know, you might have an initial issue with the workload, but it would normalize once appeals started dropping and other laws went into effect.

Strange how you single out women and false rape accusations here. Every developed country already has laws against filing false police reports or falsely accusing someone of a crime. I wonder why you'd single out this exceedingly rare occurence as if it's some actual issue. It's such a stupid idea, but at least be consistent and extend it to all crimes.

No, it's not strange. It is the only crime that carries with it a punishment far greater than the courts carry. There mere ACCUSATION ruins the life of a man. He can be found completely innocent and the world still finds him guilty. Just the accusation is damning and damaging. It is also not as rare as society would lead a person to believe. An accusation with no proof can cause a man to be kicked out of college (happens all the time), lose his job (happens all the time), make him unhirable (happens all the time), unable to see his children (happens all the time), and drop his social status to just above pond scum (happens all the time). All of this happens before even going to court or being convicted. No other crime works like this in western society. None. It needs to be balanced in order to prevent abuse and to punish those who would abuse it with the same punishment that it causes the man.

The only people that wouldn't like this law are those that would like malicious women to continue to abuse it and ruin lives through that abuse.

Besides, women rarely get more than a slap on the wrist when it's found out they made the whole thing up. Seriously, go look it up. Even when undeniable proof is found, there are women who continue to believe the one making the accusation or worse... say the man deserved it anyway.

It's disgusting behavior and it needs punished.

Imagine thinking poor people are poor cause they've "mismanaged" their life. Flat taxes, in addition to being a terrible way to raise revenue for the state(aka the entire point of a tax), also tend to destroy social mobility and drive up poverty rates. Given how much you seem to hate people on welfare, the last thing you wanna do is drive more people onto it.

Poor people are poor because they've mismanaged their life. The only times in life I've ever been poor is due to my mismanagement of my own life or funds. A person can get a job doing pretty much anything and move up in that job fairly easily. All it requires is a willingness to learn new skillsets and apply those skillsets to other jobs. If you don't have a job, you aren't looking hard enough.

I started work at $6.00 some sixteen years ago. Bottom of the ladder. Entry-level position. No ambition to do anything but that job because it was easy to do and had almost no responsibility and everyone left me alone. 3 years ago, I began looking for a new job because I was only making $10 an hour doing that same job.

The problem? I knew too much and the reason that entry-level position even worked at all, was because I had been managing it and had been unofficially put in charge of it. In short, I was defacto "Lead". If I left, nobody knew how to do anything in there except the basic part of the job. I was taking a ton of information with me.

That information and skillset was leveraged into getting a new job. In fact, it's a job that never existed before me, created because of me. Supervisor. Sure, there was a "General Supervisor" that the position reported to sometimes, but that Supervisor didn't know anything about the job and let the entry-level position run autonomously so long as it was running smoothly, which it usually did, because it had to police itself and find its own solutions for everything since nobody would help it.

So, the new Supervisor position had the requirements of my exact skillset (they asked me to do a Desk Audit of my job to find out exactly what I did every day. That was then turned into the Supervisor job since it was essentially already a management job).

I applied for the position, got it, and got a $3 pay bump. I spent the next 2 years sorting out the division, making it as light and efficient as possible, getting rid of anything unnecessary, and giving my employees motivation to take on better paying jobs as well as giving them good references if they used me as one. My entire staff that had worked there for extremely long periods of time with no ambition pretty much all took jobs with huge bumps in pay and I had to hire a brand-new team. That "entry level" job that existed where people's will to live used to go to die is now a "stepping stone" to better jobs because I don't let my staff sit idle and resign themselves to this post for all eternity.

Just a few weeks ago, I took a new job. I did everything I could do in my Supervisor position and had been spending most of my days with nothing to do. I reached the upper limit of what was possible within my position. So, I decided I wanted more pay, I needed more skills to get that pay, and began applying for jobs again. I need a skillset that primarily deals with customers and phone etiquette, so I applied for two of those jobs. One of which was a Supervisor role (because frankly, I didn't know being a Supervisor was so rewarding and fun despite being stressful. I sort of found my niche). But, anyway, I can't move on to bigger and better things without this skillset, so I'll pass through this new job with our Telephone Service Unit and learn everything I can learn there before applying for something better again.

People are poor because they've mismanaged their own life. They got too comfortable. They decided they don't want to do more. They decided to be lazy. They decided they don't want responsibility. They killed their ambition and dreams. They spend their money on short-term bursts of joy rather than long-term money investments. Or, in the case of some of the homeless, they refuse to take their medications or get the proper help they need in order to be functioning members of society.

I've hired the mentally impaired in my job. You know what? They work just as hard as the people I've hired who aren't mentally impaired. In fact, near as I can tell, they're completely capable of doing higher functioning jobs than they do, but nobody ever teaches them how to. Why don't they? Because they believe they'll never be able to do it. They aren't smart enough to learn it. Or, it takes too much time and effort to teach them to do it. I've found that to not be the case at all. I hire them anyway so long as they've got the ability to retain information and a desire to complete the job correctly. Then, I begin the work of teaching them job skills that they could use at other jobs.

Also, a flat tax would actually work, and would provide the government an actual budget so they aren't wasting money on stupid crap. There is currently a ton of waste in the system for no reason. I work for a state government, I can tell you that about 60% of our budget is wasted on nonsense and fraud rather than actually doing with it what is meant to be done with it.

It is constantly amusing to me that people who think businesses are corrupt and need to pay a lot of money to the government don't see that same government as corrupt for having that same amount of money to throw around. At least the business has to make money and goes defunct when it doesn't. Government doesn't have to make money at all and has no obligation to spend that money wisely for any reason except re-election of candidates and political parties.

Florida tried this! It was insanely expensive, wasteful, and turned up very few people actually on drugs, so they killed the program very quickly. Turns out poor people care more about eating and having shelter than getting high. Then again, you clearly think very lowly of anyone in poverty, so I guess it's not surprising.

I don't know the details of the way Florida did it... but they obviously did it wrong. About half of my friends are of the crowd that "do drugs". Most of them are also on government assistance programs. In fact, I know people who sell their EBT money for drugs. Or who use EBT money to buy innocuous things that they then turn into drugs (including Meth for a time, until it became much harder to get some of the ingredients on EBT). I know people that use Medicaid to get prescription drugs that they then sell to other people for a high price.

My guess is... it's Florida. It's more of a surprise if that state does something correctly. What probably happened (because I work for state government, particularly government assistance programs, and it's what would happen here) is that they found an exceptionally high number of people using the drugs and just chose to sweep it under the rug. See, if you kick everyone off of government assistance programs, the people working for those programs aren't necessary, so they lose their jobs. Likewise, if you no longer need the extremely inflated budget because of all those people being kicked off the programs, you can't go to the state legislature and ask for more money. That money is often used for raises for the employees and to relax the standards so more people can get on... so we can ask for more money again next year.

This is such an astonishingly bad idea, you have to be trying to bait people. I'll bite. What's gonna stop companies from kidnapping and importing people from third world countries to be exploited under this system? Human trafficking is already an issue at this point, you're literally legalizing it with this program. Not to mention the complete and utter disregard for human life.

What stops them from doing it now? It won't even exacerbate the problem either. Nor does it make it legal in anyway. Kidnapping is still a crime. Human trafficking is still a crime. The difference is that businesses can no longer employ these people and these people have a good reason to not come here illegally.

Besides being a massive invasion of privacy and stupidly expensive, you're just setting yourself up for failure on this one. Most unsolved crimes aren't unsolved for lack of DNA evidence, they're unsolved because of shoddy police work or because crime scenes go undiscovered for years, past the point where forensic evidence can solve crimes. Not to mention, how are you going to safeguard people's genetic information?

How is it an invasion of privacy? Anyone can get anyone's DNA at any time if they want to. There are even services now where you can pay to find out someone's lineage using that DNA. A person literally sheds their DNA anywhere they go. You have no reasonable expectation of privacy with your DNA in the first place.

It's actually also not that expensive to get your DNA on file. It becomes expensive when you're trying to run forensic tests on the DNA to get a match or find reasonable probability of maternity/paternity. That's what makes it expensive. Just mapping your DNA is relatively cheap. It will only get cheaper as it is made mandatory as well, and places try to cut the costs of doing so in order to maintain competition in the marketplace.

It's also easy enough to safeguard your genetic information. Or at least, in theory. Same as your medical records (which, if I'm honest here, aren't safeguarded at all by any government agency! In fact, if someone wants your medical records, they are insanely easy to take without anyone knowing they were taken! Most are locked behind a flimsy desk drawer... when they're not spread out all over countertops... or put into plastic shred bins that are shipped out to companies to do the shred with no guarantee that they didn't look over your records before shredding!). You protect the information the same as you would with HIPAA compliance laws. You just keep the servers off the public internet to prevent hackers as another safeguard.

This is gonna do the exact opposite of what you want to do and just ensure the government is run by the wealthy, for the wealthy. Although given how you seem to view poor people, maybe that's the idea. Congress being payed minimum wage means only those wealthy enough to effectively not be payed for legislative work can afford to run for office. Say bye-bye to blue collar Americans holding office, and hello to corporate lawyers and CEO's running our country.

These are the people who already have office to begin with. What's the difference other than we're not paying them tax dollars to make them even wealthier?

It's funny that you keep making these assertions about how I'm wrong while ignoring the fact that these things are going on anyway.

"Only the wealthy would be able to run for office". Yeah, that's true right now. "Corporations and CEOS would be running our country". Yeah, they already do. That's why lobbying exists. That's who gives candidates their campaign money, usually in exchange for representing their interests.

The law isn't meant to stamp out the political system. It is meant to stop the country from paying already rich people tax payer dollars that could be more effectively spent elsewhere. Likewise, it is meant to ensure that the politicians are doing their jobs rather than using office as essentially "money making vacation".

This is a great way to kill the insurance industry. Insurance companies make bank by covering people who only need it for things like the sniffles or cough syrup. By making catastrophic events the only things covered by insurance, you're gonna drive everyone not at risk out of the pool and drive up costs for those who are, or who think they are, at risk. This will do the exact opposite of what you expect and lower quality of care and drive premium costs up.

The idea is for the insurance companies to make money on people who pay in every month and limit the amount of "paying out" they have to do. You know? The original point of having insurance? It's a pool of people's money that can be dipped into, "in case crap happens"? That's what insurance is. You pay in money to limit the risk to you when unpredictable life events happen to you.

I want health insurance to work the same as car insurance. You don't take your car in for every minor ding or scratch. You take it in for things like massive hail damage, car accidents, legal trouble due to a car accident, etcetera.

If Health Insurance worked the same way, in which they didn't pay out for minor issues and only paid out for the "in case crap happens", you'd eliminate a lot of fraud (like $800 ambulance charges to drive you 9 blocks where they did nothing except check your blood pressure once on the way and you were healthy). Insurance, as it exists now, eliminates competitive pricing in the healthcare market. People aren't charging patients what they think the patients can afford. They are charging patients what they think their insurance can afford. This is how you get $300 doctor visits that result in giving the patient Aspirin (yes, I've seen this) for a headache.

Insurance is insanely exploitative of the poor. Politicians have made it even worse by running with the (false) story that you can't get treated without insurance (I used to just pay in cash and never present my insurance because it was cheaper to do it that way. It was cheaper to tell them I didn't have insurance and ask what I owed, then cut them a check rather than give them a few months to figure out how to bilk my insurance and then have my insurance ask me to pay for part of that cost). Most places even used to offer "payment plans" on care you received. They often take whatever money they can get from you, if it looks like they can't get it through your insurance.

Eliminating insurance for simple things that SHOULD be dirt cheap if insurance wasn't involved is the point. Healthcare is only expensive because the patients aren't paying for it and insurance is. In short, the poor are paying for prices that the super rich can afford, all because the super rich have made a business out of saying they'll pay for your medical bills for you, and don't worry how much it costs.

It's exploitative of poor people and there's a lot of idiots out there who like to claim the opposite and then claim to have compassion.

Besides, you can always get treated at the ER, even if you can't pay. It's illegal to turn away patients who present to the emergency room as we value life in this country and want to save as many lives as possible, even if they don't deserve to be saved.
---
Finally, I have nothing against the poor. I have issues with the lazy. The people who make excuses for themselves in order to continue to be lazy. I have issues with people who were told how to live life the correct way, did it wrong anyway, and now want a hand-out.

It is very easy to not be poor.
1. Don't have kids before you can afford them.
2. Finish at least High School.
3. Avoiding taking on debt as often as possible and pay off debt as quickly as possible.
4. Don't live beyond your means.
5. Get a job.
6. Use your job to fuel your ambition for more money and more job skills.
7. Use your job skills to acquire better jobs.
8. Budget your money and don't buy unnecessary stuff.
9. Avoid activities that are prohibitively expensive or illegal.
10. Avoid vices that will become expensive over time (cigarettes, alcohol, etcetera).
11. Don't count on others to do anything for you, and do as much as possible yourself.
12. Don't impose silly limits on yourself that restrict you from moving up in the world (I can't take this job, I don't want to move to X, that would be away from my family).
13. When opportunities show up, take them.

Barring extremely rare circumstances in which you're just screwed over by random chance... there really shouldn't be anyone who is poor or even without a job. And, really, society shouldn't be structured to assume everyone who is poor was screwed over by random chance, since it is insanely rare.

@Frostorm

Sure, you could have a loophole like that. But, there's nothing that stops that from happening right now. I think such declarations would produce a tax audit for you to ensure that yes, you really did make only $1. If a person really did make just $1, then fair enough. Though, if they were working for someone, I would think the laws about minimum wage would come into play.

What I have posted are basically the "short-hand" versions of the laws I have in mind. I've excluded a ton of details and caveats just because... well... nobody wants to read my walls of text anyway.

Plus, I do have the mindset of, "a law can really only do so much. You're not going to eliminate all fraud or loopholes. The best you can manage is stopping most of it.". Someone who wants to break the law will find a way to do so. Someone who wants to get around the law will find a way to do so. Short of turning the country into a fascist dictatorship, you aren't going to have a ton of control over that.

I would also like to point out that it's pretty difficult to "fool your employer" when it comes to illegal immigration. It would become even more difficult to do so if they knew they were at risk for hiring one. Where I work, we eliminate the issue very easily and with a two-step process. On hiring, you need to present a photo ID as well as your social security card and those go to our HR Department who makes sure they're valid and correct before you ever get paid.

Most businesses and companies don't require anything like that. They just ask you for your social security number so they can pay the money into that, and off you go to work. They don't have anyone even check if it's accurate or correct.
