8. I would love to see a re-vitalized, new-millenium version of the New Deal's CCC ...

 

The CCC was gone by 1942 (WWII drained its manpower and fund$).
But much of its work remains.

We should try to bring it back, bigtime, IMO.

Among its functions, it could build/refurbish/maintain trails like this all over America.
The CCC, re-formed for this era and connected-together with social media and modern high-tech
communications, could be awesome!

It could provide decent jobs (some shorter-term, some longer) for people all over the country,
and protect, maintain and upgrade our Nation's natural treasures for the the present AND future.

That's my view.

"... the CCC was probably the most popular New Deal program..."

Here's what remains of CCC work in, just in California ALONE ...
