Waterboarding – I think that anyone who actually defends the practice of torture by water-board like Karl Rove should be subjected to it a few times just to make sure they really want the US to have this form of interrogation in their tool chest. While they’re at it, we might also try out gerbils up the old kazoo. I’d even cough up the money to pay for Roves’ rectal exam.
Debt Forgiveness Day – I can remember as a young boy of about nine who forgot to return a library book when it was due. I lived in agony for a week as the money due mounted up. A debt I knew would break my parents back. Then, one day, I overheard someone say that the library had announced a ‘day of forgiveness’ event which would allow anyone with an overdue book to return it with no fine imposed. You can just imagine my relief. I got that book back and walked away a new man. So, perhaps we need some of the same medicine for the world today. Let’s all forgive our debts as we seek forgiveness of our debtors…hey, wait a minute! I’m sure I’ve heard that somewhere before!
Health Care Bill – I really wish more media attention would be placed on Heath Care! Also, could someone please ask the president to make a speech on the subject? I’m just dying to hear a little more detail, so as a citizen, I can feel like I’m part of the process. Heads up Fox and you other lesser media entities! Now is the time to stop your bickering and get on the bandwagon of truth, justice and the Obama way for all.
Our Present Dependence on Oil – Our, how we have seriously tied an extremely heavy chain around our necks. But, hold on! Obama and his fellow Progressives have a nifty solution just waiting in the wings. How about a tariff on every gallon of gasoline? How about $7 a gallon for instance? That would surely bridge the deficit gap while helping to make America Greener at the same time. Can you give me three ‘Hail the Chiefs?’ And if you don’t like it, just keep the old gas guzzler at home! We can all ride scooters and before you know it our American would look just like India or Japan or….
