This is an idea on how President Obama should handle the current situation in Egypt. It is either a really dumb idea or pure genius.

President Obama should speak with President Mubarak of Egypt about setting a democracy for Egypt. An international panel could help assist in setting up a constitution and a representative democracy. I think it would be best if the USA was not part of the panel because of current issues that the USA is involved in within the region. It would probably be best to have the German's, Canadians and Japanese co-lead the panel.

To help convince President Mubarak, President Obama should use examples of what happen to past dictators. Remind him of what happened to Mussolini.

There is a great danger that Egypt and the other countries in the region might fall into the wrong hand. President Obama needs to take action to help the people of the region.

If President Mubarak agreed to setting up a democracy, President Obama needs to go live to the people of Egypt and the world letting them know the details of the plan with a time line. He would need to ask them to be peaceful in their protest and educate them about the successful method used by Ghandi and Martin Luther King Jr.

Am I way off base or am I onto something?

Your solution seems to maintain the feedback loop that humanities dominate culture has been repeating for the last 3000 years. Can't you hear the echo in your idea?

Personal transformation is social transformation. Life does not end with death. We as individuals are responsible and are the directors of evolution. We are the arms legs and minds of infinite life. Billions of minds preceded our individual moments of being and billions will follow. Our responsibility to infinite life is progress not perfection. Our responsibility is to avoid thoughts, words and actions that regress infinite life's evolution to previous conditions.

Why the Kochs Really Embraced Criminal Justice Reform...

It looks like the Koch brothers have scammed us once again.

When news first came out that Charles and David Koch -- the Koch brothers -- were supporting criminal justice reform efforts in Congress, many of us thought, "Wow, they're actually doing something good for once."

And for good reason, too.
