Accountability in the Management of Federal Assets

Establish short-range, mid-range, and long-range strategic plans to grow the economy by implementing plans that will protect federal assets and the property of citizens, conserve natural resources through recycling, and reduce the impact of natural disasters on the people and the economy.

Short-range Strategic Plans

  1. Establish research grants with target dates to colleges, universities, and industry to:  determine the feasibility of neutralizing and recycling radioactive wastes and other byproducts of nuclear reactors; design processes to separate the organic and inorganic components of local garbage and trash for recovery and recycling; develop processes that can recycle rubber tires into new tires and other products of equal or better quality than the originals by the use of polymers or other synthetic components; find more high volume uses of the slag from smelting processes; and develop effective pollution control technologies to reduce the pollutants in water resources and the air pollution from coal-fired power plants and other sources.  These grants would also help fund higher education and create new industries and new jobs. 
  2. Provide tax incentives to assist companies in converting to more effective and efficient pollution control and environmentally friendly technologies.
  3. Open the Social Security trust fund to entrepreneurs, the wealthy, and young people who are very successful early in life (athletes, musicians, etc.) such that they could pre-pay their Social Security benefits so that they would be assured of retirement benefits and other benefits if they should lose their fortunes.  It would also allow the very wealthy to donate retirement benefits to their extended family members and the needy.  This could replenish the current shortfall in the Social Security trust fund.  
  4. Work with NASA and other nations to control the proliferation of space debris; develop space vehicles that can recover space debris and bring it back to earth for recycling when returning from other space missions; and develop space vehicles to deploy, service, and recover satellites.
  5. Develop a fleet of military/civilian firefighting helicopters for accurate firefighting and a very large fleet of fixed-winged aircraft from converted excess aircraft, and strategically locate them around the country to respond very quickly to potential terrorist attacks, wildfires and industrial fires, which should protect our forests, reduce insurance costs to citizens, and save the lives and property of citizens.  Strategically located lakes would also need to be developed to allow quick refilling of the fixed-winged aircraft.
  6. Establish a program, in cooperation with the military and the airline industry, to recycle excess aircraft in bone yards around the country and add the recycled raw materials to the nation’s liquid assets.
  7. Recover and recycle all the military debris and obsolete military equipment left from national military operations and foreign military operations by melting it down into ingots to provide raw materials for the rebuilding of the national infrastructure, new national projects, and resale to industry and foreign countries for revenue, which would reduce taxes and add to the nation’s liquid assets. 
  8. Reopen and update old foundries and establish new foundries to melt down the metal debris from the major recovery and recycling operations to provide raw materials for the rebuilding of the national infrastructure and for resale to industry and export, which would create new businesses and many new jobs.
  9. Add excess agricultural products to the liquid assets of the country and use these assets to help relieve hunger in the nation and around the world and to establish trade agreements with other countries for their natural resources.

Mid-range Strategic Plans

  1. Work toward a national 100% recycling and redistribution program for all garbage, trash, and excess equipment which would add to national liquid assets, provide income at the local level to relieve local taxes, and reclaim land devoted to garbage dumps.  It would also provide an entrepreneurial incentive to collect trash and garbage from all sources in local communities for recycling. 
  2. Establish a NASA-Styled program to develop vehicles for the exploration of the oceans to recover and recycle the debris from sunken vessels from previous wars and civilian operations.  An analysis of the sunken vessels of the major powers from World War II alone reveals that the total estimated displacement tons of sunken vehicles is 2,546,359 tons, which are distributed as follows:  Japan – 1,205,232 tons; United Kingdom – 480,400 tons; Germany – 366,464 tons; United States – 342,033 tons; and Italy – 152,230 tons. 
  3. Work with state and local governments, industry, and the public to recover and recycle all oil and chemical products to reduce the contamination of waterways and aquifers, and recover and recycle the debris from lakes, streams and the oceans.
  4. Develop a process to recycle the current stockpiles of nuclear waste materials and begin expanding the construction of nuclear power plants.

Long-range Strategic Plans

  1. Work toward the construction of a national underground power and communications grid that would connect to the various sources of electrical power generation and communications, which would reduce repair costs and power outages to citizens during natural disasters and national emergencies and save lives.
  2. Work toward the design and construction of a national flood control program that would transfer flood waters from flood prone areas in the East to drought prone areas in the West and replenish depleted water tables, by the use of pumps, canals, dams, tunnels, and possibly the Grand Canyon.
