The SEIU Is Looking for a Few Good Ideas

Through the web site, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is offering cash prizes for "fresh, new ideas for a better America."

Do you have a common-sense idea that will improve the day-to-day lives of everyday Americans? Or an opinion on how working families can succeed in the new global economy? You have until December 5, 2005, to submit your idea and to weigh in. A panel of judges will select the top 21 ideas. All of America will be able to vote on the finalists, and on February 1, one person will win $100,000—runners up receive $50,000 each. Ordinary Americans can help determine the future, so join this important national conversation right now. More »
One of the things I remember from my long-ago days as a Communications major is that groups of reasonably intelligent non-experts, provided with accurate information about a given problem and working together to find a solution to the problem, will often come up with more effective and workable solutions than the experts. So let's not leave it to the supposed experts — politicians, consultants, pundits, CEOs, and think-tank parasites — to determine our country's future. Let's work together to form a more perfect union. I want my country back!
