Minutes of March 7th 2013
Presented on March 21st 2013

Ladies and gentleman as you may be aware, the government is undergoing some very large cuts to itself. Never fear though eventually our friends in DC will probably figure it out and when they do the money will start flowing again. When that does happen I figured I would suggest a few projects I would like to see funded.

1. My face being added to Mount Rushmore
3. A NASA program to rain meteors down on other meteors (The revenge of Earth)
4. Pokemon
5. No serious creation of actual Pokemon
6. Dr. Knox’s Weather Control Machine
7. The Reaganomicon: with the Reaganomicon economies can be brought back from the dead using voodoo
8. The Death Star
9. Nationwide access to Google Fiber or some other equally useful internet
10. One word, two planets: MARVUS
11. Public Education
