    I like the concept, I'm just not sure how to execute it. I hate frivolous lawsuits, but sometimes they're not. Like the McDonald's coffee woman. Everyone laughed and thought it absurd, but then you see the degree of her injuries from a cup of coffee and you see she has a point.

    I wonder what the deal was there. Spills are typically glancing and don't really cause that much damage. It's like she dumped the entire cup all over herself and just let her flesh marinate.

    Yeah, coffee burns can be pretty nasty but those photos are more like acid or hot oil burns...

    How hot can 212 degrees be?

    Term limits, no more lobbyists, all legislature members pay into Social Security just as we do, no pension other than match what they put in, same type of health insurance as we have, salaries reduced, increases based on cost of living index only. No more free services such as barber shops, pay their way just like we do.

    Flat rate income tax with all deductions other than dependents eliminated.

    Comprehensive welfare reform, mainly requiring seeking work for those able to work.

    Increase benefits to military when discharged, make reparations for those killed in action, and add to payments for those wounded.

    Rather than spend Billions on building a wall, and spending many millions on immigration control, pay those to stay in Mexico. Got to be cheaper.

    Improve Homeland Security, do extensive background checks on immigrants, paying particular attention to those from countries known to be housing terrorists. Increase penalties and deportation for immigrants that are found to be involved with terrorism.

    I hereby nominate RBroyles as this third party's first candidate for president. He can make these things happen to the legislators, and better still - make them like it.

    How about doing something about gang activity. A lot of residents are held hostage in their own neighborhood.

    She was in a car and dumped it in her lap. McDonald's also was brewing their coffee hot as hell to keep people from getting as many free refills.

    This portion is rock solid. Not sure how you enforce no lobbyists, but I like the idea.

    Not saying I disagree, but why deductions for dependents? What is the rationale?
    Comprehensive welfare reform, mainly requiring seeking work for those able to work.
    Good idea, but the devil will be in the details
    Increase benefits to military when discharged, make reparations for those killed in action, and add to payments for those wounded.
    Depends on details for me here. Medical care for any and all service-related conditions should be given at a high quality. I'm fine with reparations for those KIA. I think details will matter when it comes to extra payments for wounded, and I'm also in favor of foreign wars being made a matter of public voting with those voting yes automatically registering for draft service if necessary (in whatever capacity they can contribute, even if it is processing paperwork for others at bootcamp)
    Rather than spend Billions on building a wall, and spending many millions on immigration control, pay those to stay in Mexico. Got to be cheaper.
    I don't understand the point of this. I don't think it is a viable solution.
    Improve Homeland Security, do extensive background checks on immigrants, paying particular attention to those from countries known to be housing terrorists. Increase penalties and deportation for immigrants that are found to be involved with terrorism.
    I like the idea, but I'm not sure what more can be done on this front. The penalty for being involved with terrorism seems pretty steep as-is.
    My comments in bold.

    She originally just wanted McDonald's to pay for the medical expenses (~$20,000), Mc Donalds offered $800. Kept escalating monetarily from there.

    According to the lawsuit it was between 180-190F,which is actually considered below optimal brewing temp. Serving temp was asked to be no higher than 140f. What got her apparently we're the cotton pants she was wearing soaked it all up and held it against her skin.

    Plank #1: give a shit about people.

    Not as a one-issue sound-byte, but genuinely prioritizing this in all our decisions. Leave war as a last resort, because we give a shit about the collateral damage it does. Examine all domestic policy to make sure it's not throwing a segment of the population under the bus (you can see this in the justice system, entitlement reforms, worker protections, etc.). Listen to people you disagree with, rather than shouting them down. I'd like to extend this to being pro-life, but since I'm sure I'll get pushback on that, at least ban abortion post-fetal viability.

    IMO, the majority of people don't care about the specific policy nearly as much as they want to know that their leaders aren't ignoring them and/or throwing them under the bus. Start with that, and we're on the right track.

    That one was really tongue in cheek.
