An example for Number 10 below - it exemplifies the BRILLIANCE of politicians, here in Maryland.
I watched FOX NEWS last night, and they reported that our astute 'leaders' in Annapolis were proposing a change in the law, regarding DWI offenders - on the THIRD offense they would be forced to install a SPECIAL RED TAG on the vehicle they drove!
I immediately sent FOX a scathing email - questioning - WHY IN GOD'S NAME WOULD THEY STILL HAVE A LICENSE TO DRIVE?
Methinks that cerebral functions are not their strong suit! Makes you wonder just who is minding the store? Doesn't it?
Open Letter to The President Elect

Some suggestions you might want to consider:
1. BRING ALL TROOPS HOME!
Not just those in Iraq and Afghanistan, but from all around the world - BUT before doing so, have them BLOW UP ALL BASES we have established. Do not leave them available for use by future enemies! For a change, let us mind our own business again, and let all those TWO-FACED FRIENDS in other countries VIE FOR THEMSELVES!
2. SCRAP THE PROJECT 28 BOONDOGGLE!
Instead of paying BOEING that RIDICULOUS amount of $21,000,000 - yeah, that’s MILLIONS - for their screwed-up MESS on the 28-MILE FENCE being constructed South of Tucson, Arizona - reported today on PBS Radio - Cameras that DON’T WORK! Radar that DOESN’T WORK! LAPTOPS that DON’T INTERFACE with Border Patrol Computers, et cetera - ALL DESIGNED BY THAT CORPORATION without input from said Border Patrol - ( GEE, wonder if they are using any OVER-PRICED RIP-OFF items like those used in designing multi-million dollar airplanes? ) -
Instead - string simple BARBED-WIRE and RAZOR-WIRE fences, and install BUNKERS with MACHINE GUNS, manned by all those TROOPS we bring back! Then, they will still be in the Armed Forces, still HAVE A JOB AND GET PAID - and still EARN their other BENEFITS! Naturally, WARNING SIGNS - EN ESPANOL - will be strategically placed, all along this fence.
ALSO - we can set up BORDER INSPECTION STATIONS, at important locations, which WE DETERMINE, to X-RAY ALL TRUCKS AND VEHICLES ENTERING!
3. DEPORT ALL ILLEGAL ALIENS - PERIOD!
ALL - Mexican - Muslim - Students and Workers with EXPIRED Visas, or Green Cards.
ALL - so-called “ANCHOR CHILDREN” - NO MORE FREE RIDE! NO MORE INFRINGEMENT ON OUR SOCIAL SECURITY RETIREMENT SYSTEM, WHICH WE PAID IN ALL OUR WORKING LIVES FOR!
4. STOP IMPORTING FOREIGN OIL! -
Drill new AMERICAN WELLS - it is my understanding that NATURAL GAS is a natural BY-PRODUCT, when wells are tapped - eliminate all MORATORIUMS on drilling for oil.
If it is HERE - let’s USE IT! The same American Oil Corporations that have been RIPPING US OFF with pre-fabricated, avarice-ridden gasoline prices at the pumps will now have to SPEND SOME OF THOSE ILL-EARNED PROFITS ON RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT - and FUTURE EARNINGS WILL BE PROPERLY TAXED!
Let’s see what happens to the price of a BARREL from OPEC - AFTER AMERICA STOPS BUYING IT FROM STINKING FILTHY RICH ARABS!
5. INTEREST REVERSAL! -
WHEN WERE THE USURY LAWS RESCINDED? BY WHOM? FOR WHAT PERSONAL AND CORPORATE GAINS? Ii is not turn for a SWAP, or FLIP-FLOP!
Based on amounts borrowed on CREDIT CARDS - PLASTIC - LIMIT THE CORPORATIONS TO ONLY - ONE PERCENT - TWO PERCENT - THREE PERCENT - FIVE PERCENT MAXIMUM INTEREST - and then PAY CONSUMERS FOR SAVINGS AT: FIVE PERCENT - TEN PERCENT - TWENTY PERCENT - HECK, EVEN UP TO THIRTY-THREE PERCENT - like the THIEVES USED TO CHARGE!
6. NATIONAL HEALTH INSURANCE ACT! -
STOP THE RIP-OFFS BY INSURANCE COMPANIES AND PHARMACEUTICAL MANUFACTURERS! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! SCRAP MEDICARE - SCRAP MEDICAID - SCRAP THIS HEINOUS BOONDOGGLE that has been SCREWING OLD PEOPLE!
EVERY AMERICAN CITIZEN should be covered for: ALL HEALTHCARE COSTS - ALL DOCTOR VISITS - ALL HOSPITAL VISITS - ALL MEDICATIONS - ALL SURGICAL PROCEDURES - FROM CRADLE TO GRAVE - ALL!
If any company, or any doctor, or any health practitioner doesn’t like it - LET THEM MOVE ELSEWHERE IS THE WORLD!
7. NATIONAL FREE EDUCATION ACT! -
You truly want “No child left behind?” - Education in this country has turned into an industry which operates like a PROFIT-SEEKING one - higher costs of: Tuitions, Textbooks, Resident Housing, Construction of more and more, and more BUILDINGS -
EXPANSION - SPRAWLING EVER OUTWARD - GROWING - TO FILL THE COFFERS OF HUGE UNIVERSITIES - in the State of Maryland alone, just take a drive through the campuses of: Johns Hopkins - Morgan State - University of Maryland - and more, more, MORE!
You want more truly competent and well educated: Engineers - Scientists - Mathematicians - Language Experts? As long as ANY child works hard, PASSES all his/her tests and examinations, they get PROMOTED UP THE EDUCATION LADDER - AT NO COST! NO MORE STUDENT LOANS TO BURY THEIR FUTURES IN - NO MORE PARENTS’ LOANS ON THEIR MORTGAGED HOMES, WHICH SOME ARE NOW LOSING! NO MORE! NO MORE!
8. MORTGAGE MARKET! -
THE FALSELY CREATED BALLOON HAS BURST! Just like I predicted it would!
Fly-by-night CREEPS, CEO’s, and other PEDATORS had their HEYDAY! IT IS OVER!
Prosecute and JAIL the CULPRITS! - Just like ENRON - our government officials and politicians KNEW what was going on, but DID NOTHING! One cannot help but wonder -
How many of them had their HAND IN THE PIE?
Just like the HURRICANE KATRINA FIASCO - good, hard-working HONEST CITIZENS NEED TO BE BAILED OUT! PERIOD! NOW! NOT NEXT WEEK, OR NEXT MONTH, OR NEXT YEAR - NOW!
ALL MORTGAGE FORECLOSURES SHOULD BE ESTOPPED LEGALLY - BY LAW! Let the Banks, Lenders, Mortgage Companies - SUFFER THEIR LOSSES!
Just like playing RUSSIAN ROULETTE - THEY GAMBLED - THEY JUMPED ON THE BANDWAGON - THEY REAPED EXORBITANT PROFITS - AND NOW, THE VULTURES HAVE COME HOME TO ROOST - THEY LOST! PAY UP!
ANY COMPANY OR CORPORATION THAT DOESN’T LIKE IT - MOVE TO CHINA! I’m told there is a HUGE MARKET THERE! WE DON’T NEED YOU!
9. THE SO-CALLED “WAR ON DRUGS” FIASCO! -
Now come on - whom are YOU trying to kid? VIET NAM WAS A DRUG CENTER, SO WE GOT INTO A WAR! AFGHANISTAN IS CURRENTLY A DRUG CENTER - SO WE GOT INTO A WAR! We tell them that growing POPPIES IS A NO-NO, so instead of producing poppies for OPIUM, they switch over to CANABIS - to produce MARIJUANA and HASH-HISH - which, parenthetically, is easier to grow, and MORE PROFITABLE!
MEXICO IS STILL CURRENTLY A DRUG CENTER, and the volume of illegal drugs coming over the border is HUGE --- DO YOU WANT ANOTHER WAR? RIGHT HERE IN NORTH AMERICA?
Gim’me a break! Dis-locate your HEADS out of your RECTUMS, and CEASE AND DESIST BEING CROOKS!
10. LAW ENFORCEMENT - GANG-BANGERS - CRIME - JUSTICE! -
Another SICK JOKE! The cops chase them, catch them, and the prosecutors prosecute them, the judges either let them go, on a TECHNICALITY - or they get PAMPERED in over-crowded prisons - where they somehow get their DRUGS EASIER! DUH!
OUR TAX DOLLARS SUPPORT THESE ROTTEN INGRATES! How about employing some COMMON SENSE? How about a new law? THIRD-TIME LOSERS GET DEPORTED! PARACHUTE THEIR ARSES OVER IRAQ - OR IRAN - OR THE ARCTIC CIRCLE - OR ANT-ARCTICA --- ANYWHERE - WE DON’T WANT, OR NEED THEM, AND SURE AS HELL SHOULDN’T HAVE TO PAY TO SUPPORT THEM! PERIOD!
Well, Dear Friends, there are certainly more ills in our society that could be addressed, but for now - TEN should be sufficient for this noble treatise. While I do apologize to all the PURISTS out there, for all the CAPS used herein, but some stupid issues just PISS ME OFF!
In closing, you may ask - how are we going to PAY for all these proposed costly CHANGES?
It is really quite simple - another pet peeve needs to be totally ELIMINATED - the entire top-heavy IRS SYSTEM!
EVERY GROSS DOLLAR EARNED BY EVERY WORKING INDIVIDUAL, AND EVERY CORPORATION OR COMPANY SIMPLY GETS TAXED A FLAT RATE OF TEN PERCENT! Kind of like TITHING!
Every PAYDAY, or for companies, every MONTH, based on P&L statements, an automatic FEDERAL DEDUCTION OCCURS. There is no longer any need for: ANY TAX RETURNS - NO DEDUCTIONS - NO CAPITAL GAINS - NO OIL DEPLETION ALLOWANCES - NO PARITY PROGRAMS - NO ‘HIDING’ OF MONEY VIA ANY ‘LOOP-HOLES’ WHATSOEVER - NUTTIN’ HONEY!
OH - to be sure all the TAX REVENUERS AND TAX ACCOUNTANTS AND TAX LAWYERS will have to find other HONEST jobs - BUT, just like Number 8 above -
SO SOLLY - WE DON’T NEED THEM EITHER!
GEE - wouldn’t it be something if RALPH NADER WON -
And picked ME for a running mate? DUH!
