Ryan...

Some of those ideas were just plain idiotic (like the ones about no social security and the drug punishments).
When I got hurt at work, you can bet your <behind> that I wanted the money for lost wages; and I got it (or 70% of it).
The war on drugs is costing more than it's worth. Just legalize some "softer" drugs, and tax them. The amount of money saved from not fighting them, in addition with the tax revenue, would bring in some big bucks.
If you started taxing foreign goods more (like you said you would), you'd start an international trade-war. Not a good thing, as we saw with Bush's dumb-arse move with the steel industry.

My ideas....

1. I would kill the tax cuts for businesses that export American jobs and add rather larger tax penalties for doing so.

2. I would kick the **edited** marriage issue out of the federal courts and leave it up to the states just like it's always been.

3. I would federalize the school system. I would take it out of the states hands because they can apearently not handle it. The schools would be funded by the federal government and the federal government would say what they must teach.

4. I would raise the military budget for increased pay, training, and R&D funding.

5. I would stop **edited** footing around with the war on terror. I would stop trying to make everyone happy and get dirty with the people spreadin the dirt. By this I mean, I would handle our enemies like we used to, ruthlessly and efficiently and not worry about every single building we blow up or every arab we kill and also not worry about what everyone thinks about these things. In short, I would do to the middle east what we did to Japan and Germany in the fortys even if it means keeping CNN off of our backs so we can do what needs to be done.

6. I would make every drug violation after a rather minor point a federal crime and make very harsh sentences the norm.

7. I would revamp the war on drugs and include it in the war on terror. Those columbian drug lords are killing more people than Bin Laden ever did.

8. I would completely cut taxes on gas and cover the loss with bigger taxes on cigarettes and alcohol.

9. I would also encourage drilling in the U.S. and pump billions into the development of practical electric/hydrogen/whatever-isn't-gas vehicles.

10. I would reassure medicare's life and make sure everyone that needs it has it.

11. I would NOT make Social Security for those who can work. Instead I would give them temporary funds and make a data base of job seekers that business would get paid to look at first.

12. If things were bad enough I would start public works like the ones in the great depression years.

13. I would impose more taxes on imported major purchases like cars, ect. and drop taxes on U.S. made products.

14. I would allow local police to question any person they suspect of being an illegal alien. If it turned out that they were, they would be immediately deported.

15. I would make it manditory for new imagrants to learn english before they are granted citizenship.

16. I would make it illegal for Universities/Business to accept/hire minorities just because they are minorities. I would take a lot of the "reverse" racism out of our nations policies.

17. I would also make it harder for people to sue over stupid crap. No money would be rewarded if no money was lost. Pain and suffering doesn't count.


So there ya go.

what the heck is wrong with you man?

Im open minded. (open minded? how can you lend your support to something as vile as two men...)

If two men love each other then why not? Why do you not mention females? What can we base a law against it on? You cant make a law on just "Eew thats nasty its not 'the norm' ". well, you could base it on the Bible...

"the man is supposed to leave his parents to be with his wife"

no the man is supposed to leave his parents to be with a man

good lord if i was pres. i would make **edited** marrige treason, and subject to death.

Why? (because to me....**edited**s marrying as the same as you pissing on my grandfathers ashes. I'd kill you with out a second thought.)

How is it me urinating on your grandfathers ashes? I dont see the connection at all? And your actually saying that you would harm a person that supports freedom, the one thing that this country was based on?

actually, this country was partly founded on principles from the Bible

by ...... something realy realy realy bad. like forcing you to listen to the barney theme song.

I quit Barney jokes back in the 3rd grade there homeslice... (i wasn't being completely serious here. but i'd eather fry you or shoot you. not sure which. which one hurts more?)

Why are you so violent over **edited** marrige? How does two **edited**s that love each other getting married hurt you WHAT-SO-EVER?

i gues technically it doesn't, but did you think maybe he wasnt thinking only of himself, and thinking of the men/women? its a sin to be in a **edited** marriage

I would legalize Marijuana ,and prostitution , (that would almost decimate organized crime ) , I would clear Deathrow (dont ask how) and revamp the American Justice system (judiciary) , Welfare would be for those that could work and couldnt find work (think CCC or WPA here ) , those that were unable, would be covered , (nationalized insurance , like canada ) , I would develop internal economy , by upgrading education standards , and subsidizing industry backed technical/incentive programs , and a flat tax for all , 10 pct of gross , no excuses, or BS . let everybody pull their share of the load .

O man I've got it so basically you get the whole country to be interested in the same thing but have different views on some issues within this certain interest.  Then we will have a few people with 4 uhh *patches* that are all mighty and wise and try to help.  Then people with 3 *patches* that are most of the time helpful but sometimes return to the ways of the 2 *patches*.  Which brings me to the 2 *patches* that very alot, some are very smart and help the common forumer... i mean citizen but some are very mean and cruel to those who might not be as smart.  Then there are the regular 1 *patch* people that are probably the most diverse, some try and learn some try to teach, some live to flame... I mean put down, some are just not very smart and some are very smart but do not know much about this certian "interest".  Well I think we all know what I speak of just thought I'd write what I thought.

Note: If you do flame me, which is your choice what honestly will you be accomplishing?  We will never come in contact and it will not earn you credibility and if you do it just for fun well maybe there is something wrong with you.

I'd allow a select few of you to speedball through the corridors of the white house.

Then paint and rename said white house, calling it the "Jay's Palace"

Then, it's down to business.

   ~The major gun freaks like belt would be locked away. For a long time.

   ~The criminal policy in this country would be thus: For a felony, you're beaten by the victims of your crime until you're confined to a wheelchair for the rest of your life. For a misdemeanor, you're beaten by the victims of your crime until you need a colonostopy bag.

~As soon as a child hits puberty, they are given a basic intelligence/common sense test. If they fail, they are sterilized to prevent them from breeding more stupid people like the smart parts executives.

Sam Adams will become the National Drink.

Every town and public institution will have a designated government employee who carries a wiffle ball bat. If someone does something stupid, they are punished by this official who shall administer blows with the bat. Citizens are encouraged to rat out their stupid friends, as it's always funny to watch someone else get beaten.

International policy goes as such:

           We pull out of Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. and tell them "One more screw up, one more crime against humanity, and we come back...and when we leave, I'm pretty sure you won't be happy."

          Canada and England are to be treated with the utmost respect (except the french canadians) Just because they're awesome. We will also send money to Ireland....because it's awesome.

          Background checks for gun posession will be alot more grueling than it is now, and the wait period will be just as long. If you have nothing to hide, why gripe about a background check? huh? Anything more serious than a traffic ticket, you'd better start playing with Nerf guns, because that's all you're gonna get.

       Also, before owning a firearm, even if the background check clears, you take an intelligence exam. Fail it and it's a no go on the guns. You'll be given a lollipip and a kick in the genitals for being stupid.

  Let's see......

    Paintball will be introduced in schools as mandatory. It is after all, a terriffic team building activity. If you don't work as a team, you get hurt. I like how that works.

     Teachers will recieve more money for having to put up with some of the little cretins that parents have spawned. They will also be allowed to carry wiffle ball bats for the same aforementioned reason.

     High school students will be given more, harder work, which they will do well on, or stay in high school forever. The influx of morons into college will end.

     I will appoint an official scapegoat, so when things go wrong, I will have someone to blame, so my administration will not suffer. I'm thinking Dave Ellis will fit this position perfectly.

     I will also have a presidential smartass. He will be directly responsible for verbally chastizing stupid people. Enos has first pick of this job.

     I guess I'll need legitimate laws somewhere....Rambino is responsible for that. I don't know if I'll listen to him, but he'll have a job at least.

      One random forumer will be executed.

 So my ideas are slightly juvenile in nature, but what the heck...even us old folks have to have SOME fun now and then.

I am also in favor of people learning stuff, including languages.  But why is this the government's business?  We already speak the most pervasive language on the planet - any additional language learned would only serve specialty purposes.  Our situation is unlike that of any other country, excepting Canada (to the extent that this is really a country).  We already have a massive uni-lingual economy of our own, and we already speak the lingua franca of business.

As a result, there is no single second language that is the correct choice for Americans to learn, unlike in Germany or Japan, where learning English is the obvious choice for international communication.

In the US, many people might want/need to learn Spanish, but for other large groups that would be a waste of time.

If the government starts mandating additional language training in schools, there should at a minimum be a selection of languages offered.  Otherwise we might almost as well be teaching ancient Greek.

I know quite a bit about the Japanese culture, especially their business culture, and I know that English is very important to them. However, just the communism comment was towards you. I believe it would be important for Americans to learn another language, but what language would be up to our government.

Not sure if the communism and the language comments are related, or if the language comment was directed at me...?

In any event, while Germans are often skilled in language, I think you seriously overestimate the language skills of the Japanese.  You also, in my experience, seriously overestimate the business value of non-English language skills.
