Wednesday, January 21, 2015; ho-hum-hump-day

I heard Obama gave his State of the Union speech last night. ho-hum. More of the same, more of the same. What’s he gonna do? The Republican Majority in both houses of Congress won’t pass anything he proposes, so he is free to propose anything and everything.

The only way anything’s going to get done is if enough Democrats in Congress cross party lines to vote in favor of overriding a Presidential veto. Which, quite frankly, is likely.

So I’d like to offer my own “State of the Union” if you will, at least as far as certain policy proposals go:

First and foremost we must restore this great country to the greatness that we had before, and by before, I mean before things went to hell in a hand basket and we invaded not one, but two independent sovereign states in wars based on lies. And to do that, I’m ordering the immediate arrest of the prior administration, to be handed over to the International Criminal Court for to be tried for crimes against humanity and international war crimes.

Next, I am restoring tax rates to where they were before ‘trickle down economics’ destroyed our middle class and restore regulations to where they were before deregulating destroyed our economy.

Free trade agreements that benefited multi-national corporations at the expense of the American Worker will be replaced with Fair Trade agreements.

Guantanamo is history. I’m shutting it down. It’s a blight on our nation as a nation that respects and upholds the rule of law. I don’t care if Congress doesn’t appropriate funds to shut it down, I’m shutting it down. I’ll find the money somewhere. And if Congress doesn’t like it, they can impeach me. In fact, I dare them to.

You get my drift. Oh, and these are my policy proposals, and do not necessarily reflect on the policies and proposals of The Zoo.
