Make America Great Again
But, the professor takes it a bit further, saying that the federal bureaucracy should take a hike as well, to more places where they can actually improve the local habitat.
So perhaps it’s time for a role-reversal. I propose that over the next several years, we transfer a lot of federal employees out of the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, to parts of the country that aren’t doing so well economically. This would provide a boost to places like Buffalo, New York, or Quincy, Illinois, or Fresno, California, while getting federal bureaucrats out of the D.C. bubble.
President-elect Trump should immediately order all federal agencies to pick a town in the US with a population under 50,000 and make immediate plans to move, lock, stock, and barrel. I think it’s a great idea, and would serve to de-centralize government i a way that we haven’t seen in decades.
Meh. If NASA had stayed focused on actual human exploration and colonization of space (remember the promises of the ’60s?), we could send them where they really belong. Preferably via a really, really efficient Hohmann transfer.
