This Week's Game

Your Origin Roots Embraced

Columbus Day (CD) is a controversial holiday commemorating Christopher Columbus's arrival in the Americas in 1492. However, we propose replacing it with YORE long weekend (YW), three days to celebrate all our rich ancestries. YORE stands for Your Origin Roots Embraced. Why is this change needed? ONE PARROT claims that Columbus is a hero who brought civilization and Christianity to the new world and that his legacy deserves to be honored by the nation. THE OTHER PARROT reclaims that Columbus was a villain who invaded and exploited the native peoples and lands and that a holiday should not glorify his actions.

Should YORE Weekend Adopt Columbus Day?


Let’s get horizontal, Politics 4.0 makes strange bedfellows

Turn your phone and your perspective horizontally
Widen your views, literally and figuratively
Politics is a landscape not a self-portrait
You’ll need both your left and right thumbs
Widen your views — left and right
Let’s knock down some figurative silos
Let’s sit on the 50 yard line, not just one end zone

This unifying theory of public policy is based on the ground truth, “There’s a time to save and a time to spend, there’s a time for freedom and a time for laws, where can we agree?” The PolicyKeys™ Gameboard is a one-page narrative tool which drives an AI to check for possible forecasting discrepancies. Now that public policy solutions can be fairly scored with a replicable and scalable system, the best nonpartisan public policy solutions can rise up to the National Idea Leaderboard to take the mystery, sleight of hand, spin, and outright sabotage out of identifying the best public policy for America. This makes somewhat dry public policy read more like a delicious restaurant menu and the sports page. Politics 4.0 transparently presents the theory, four laws of public policy formation, methodology, process, and examples for truly-interested open-minded citizens. Is it better to be a wonk or a parrot?
