State of the Union ..It is not clear what the fallout will be from the ‘06 State of the Union Address. But one thing is for sure, the Dumbplumber needs to weigh in on the issue.
Iraq….We will keep our promises to deliver you from tyranny, help you develop a successful democracy and protect you from your extremist neighbors. However, you will take on more responsibilities like, assist in ferreting out terrorists living among you, showing a little appreciation for what you now have, so stop acting like we will leave you at the drop of a hat and discontinue bitching about the soldiers and support personnel that provide you with the security, that you may go on about your miserable lives.
The economy…. We will continue to lead the world, as the strongest economy on the planet. We will ask our trading partners to commit, as a percent of their GDP, resources to the War on Terror, or face cutbacks on their exports until they do. And not to point out the obvious, but if we suffer at the hands of terrorists, everyone suffers including our trading partners. Obviously, we prefer to do business with those that support us. Additionally we will ask countries, like Japan, to open their markets to our goods on a par with theirs to ours.
Energy….We will demand the Big Energy Companies to provide maps and leases of all reserves, producing and capped, and require that they either uncap and produce from these reserves or face losing leases, within two years. The name of the game here is to provide reasonably priced energy while we transition to other energy sources, NOT move to monopolize every square foot of oil producing ground on the planet, while allowing militant regimes hold hostage to our futures.
Social Security….Liberals will work with Conservatives to produce a plan to save Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, pass it through Congress, then shut up and stop using it as a pawn in their petty little game of politics.
Immigration….America needs guest workers more than it needs Russian tennis stars, East Indian computer programmers, English actors or Canadian Country and Western singers. So from this point forward, we will greet Mexican farm workers with the same courtesy efficiency and conditions that we provide the aforementioned guests at any international airport or port of entry for ships or automobiles.
Taxes…. History, which is routinely ignored, tells us that a rising sea lifts all ships. Likewise, lower taxes stimulates growth, increases jobs and ergo increases revenues to the Government coffers. So, let’s stop the political hand job and go with what works. If we want to do something about taxes, let us concentrate on how the Government spends our money rather than how they can get more.
