    As a professional resume writer (like Jacqui above), I like her career/resume support idea. It helps put America back to work and assists job seekers in the art of selling their skills.

    Since I'm also on the board of directors for and work with a canine rescue group, how about a cash for spay/neuter program? Too many people with animals "can't afford" the surgery and contribute to the rampant animal overpopulation problem in the US.

    Cash to spay/neuter the family pet would reduce the number of unwanted animals in shelters across the US. That means fewer tax dollars going to the care and (yes, I'll say it) disposal of a growing problem. (Eight to twelve million animals end up in shelters every year -- five to nine million of them die there.) A proactive spay/neuter program would greatly reduce those number and the operating costs for cash strapped shelters nationwide. Sounds like a tax savings to me.

    Now THAT'S a "cash for ... " program I can support.

    Jacqui, I like your thinking. Maybe sign up for http://www.BusinessCard2.com and create your business card for the internet. Note: although it doesn't cost anything, it isn't subsidized by the government, and therefore may be of value.

    How about 'cash for career resume clunkers?' These are resumes with extremely dated career tombstone formats and Microsoft Resume Templates. If you give each job hunter $1K+ to turn in their archaic resumes and invest in a private-sector resume expert to tailor their job search materials, it would be amazing the career momentum.

    Cash for Clunkers...I think this whole idea will be referred to as a "clunker" when it is all said and done.
