Having a Bachelors in Political Science, Masters in Public Administration (with emphasis Public management) and – the biggest MISTAKE OF MY LIFE – a law degree, I can tell you that running a country is not rocket science. However in the Estados Unidos we are running an EMPIRE, which is an untenable situation.
Fortunately there are some SIMPLE SOLUTIONS to what plagues us as a nation.
1. Obamacare – Have it EXCLUSIVELY cover the uninsured and those who cannot afford coverage – that was tough, I know – and the rest of the population covered by their employers, unions and otherwise. Leave well enough alone.
2. The Poor– HELP THEM! Stop spending trillions- with a capital “T” on blowing up other people and their countries. There’s a novel concept, I know. Wars are unwinnable and stupid. Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll have pretty much guaranteed that our “culture” – to use the term loosely – will Lord over everything..
4. Public School– Focus on the 3 “Rs”… Readin’, rioting and arithmetic. I don’t care if Tina has two Dads and neither should you! Common Core/ Common Crap… whats the difference. We are a country of differences… deal with it!
5. The Drug War – STOP throwing junkies in prison if they haven’t harmed anyone but themselves. Addiction is a public health issue where “hard drugs” are concerned. Marijuana is safer than alcohol and cigarettes. Next!
6. Student Loans – Design a program where those of us who help the “poor and unfortunate” can work off our debts that way. Then maybe we can afford to buy houses, get married and have kids and become part of the bedrock of society.
“The RIGHT of the PEOPLE to be secure in their persons, houses and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath of affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the person or place to be searched.”
Brought to you, by the way, by the OLD, DEAD, WHITE GUYS- who knew what they were talking about.
8. The Environment – Think about the future, asshole. Yeah, I’m talking to you Monsanto! Food, water and air are sacrosanct, so leave them alone.
9. Male/Female relations. Women; allow men to be nice to you. Men; women are more than a life support system for a vagina and boobs! Try talking to each other again. There’s more to life than “texting, drinking and screwing.” It would be so nice to pick a girl up for a date again and get to know them before getting mired in the “Penthouse Forum Letters” section.
10) Immigration – Learn to speak English and watch the NFL. Bam! You’re an American
That’s it, I’m done. Happy 4th of July in the “Land of the Slave”
