8/24/11 Thinking...........

So i saw my friend Vicky and her family last weekend, and while I love them to death, they are totally against government as it stands today. I do not blame them for most of their views, but i personally would not go to the extremes that they discuss going to. Anyway, we were talking and she says that Bill Cosby is running for president as a write in candidate and that when I get home and online I should check out his platform. Well I did and via as well as many other urban legend sites, it is of course a hoax that has been attributed to Bill Cosby, Robin Williams and George Carlin over the years. However, I got to thinking, that our government is supposed to be for the people and of the people, so what would happen if everyone who agrees with the following "platform" writes to their government officials and lets them know that of the people and for the people want this and they want it NOW! ???
Here are the platform issues listed:
(1). Any use of the phrase: 'Press 1 for English' is immediately banned. English is the official language; speak it or wait outside of our borders until you can.

(2). We will immediately go into a two year isolationist attitude in order to straighten out the greedy big business posture in this country.. America will allow NO imports, and we'll do no exports. We will use the 'Wal-Mart 's policy, 'If we ain't got it, you don't need it.' We'll make it here and sell it here!

(3). When imports are allowed, there will be a 100% import tax on it coming in here.

(4). All retired military personnel will be required to man one of the many observation towers located on the southern border of the United States (six month tour). They will be under strict orders not to fire on SOUTHBOUND aliens.

(5). Social Security will immediately return to its original state. If you didn't put nuttin in, you ain't gettin nuttin out. Neither the President nor any other politician will be able to touch it.

(6). Welfare. -- Checks will be handed out on Fridays, at the end of the 40 hour school week, the successful completion of a urinalysis test for drugs, and passing grades.

(7). Professional Athletes -- Steroids? The FIRST time you check positive you're banned from sports ... for life.

(8). Crime -- We will adopt the Turkish method, i.e., the first time you steal, you lose your right hand. There is no more 'life sentences'. If convicted of murder, you will be put to death by the same method you chose for the victim you killed: gun, knife, strangulation, etc.

(9). One export of ours will be allowed: wheat; because the world needs to eat. However, a bushel of wheat will be the exact price of a barrel of oil.

(10). All foreign aid, using American taxpayer money, will immediately cease and the saved money will help to pay off the national debt and, ultimately, lower taxes. When disasters occur around the world, we'll ask The American People if they want to donate to a disaster fund, and each citizen can make the decision as to whether, or not, it's a worthy cause.

(11). The Pledge of Allegiance will be said every day at school and every day in Congress.

(12). The National Anthem will be played at all appropriate ceremonies, sporting events, outings, etc.

Or you know what? How about making your own list of 12 things you think would make this a better country, or help the economy or whatever and sending it out to your friends and family as well as your local, state and federal government members? I just feel that if we as Americans keep just sitting back and waiting for some public official to magically fix things, then we deserve the fall of our nation which at this point I see as inevitable.

Anyway, that is my thought for the day, as always ~peace and luv to all ~ Laura
