Bill Cosby has always had a great way of distilling things. Looks like
he's done it again! Some of these are very good points!!
I HAVE DECIDED TO BECOME A WRITE-IN CANDIDATE in 2012.
HERE IS MY PLATFORM:
(1) 'Press 1 for English' is immediately
banned. English is the official language; speak it or wait
at the border until you can--we'll send Peace Corps
volunteers to help set up ESL centers.
(2) We will immediately go into a two year
isolationist posture to straighten out the country's
attitude. NO imports, no exports. We will
use 'Wal-Mart 's policy, 'If we ain't
got it, you don't need it.'
(3) When imports are allowed after those two years,
there will be a 100% import tax on all of them..or whatever
percentage the exporting country charges US for our goods
going the other way.
(4) All retired military personnel will be required to
man one of our many observation towers on the southern
border (90 day tours, with benefits). 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 getting nuttin out--and that includes CONGRESS:
not the President nor any other politician will be able to
(6) Welfare - Checks will be handed out on Fridays at
the end of the 40 hour school week and the successful
completion of urinalysis and a passing grade.
(7) Professional Athletes--Steroids... The FIRST time
you check positive you're banned for life.
(8) Crime - We will adopt the method that holds
down crime in many Eastern nations: the first time you
steal, you lose your right hand. There are no more life
sentences. If convicted of murder, you will be put to
death by the same method you chose for your victim; gun,
knife, strangulation, etc.
(9) One export will be allowed during the two-year
isolationist period: Wheat. The world needs to eat.
HOWEVER, any bushel of grain sold to oil-rich nations
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 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 whether 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..
Sorry if I'm not sorry--I've surely stepped on someone's
GOD BLESS AMERICA .
