State of the Union Thoughts

Posted by madjillmom on January 26, 2011

  • Boring and out of sync.  The usual applause lines were stepped on as the standing and cheering was different.
  • Unnecessary Parenting Advice – Teach your children to worship the science fair winner instead of the basketball players he loves.  Make your kids do their homework.  Move to schools with nearby gangs because they become better schools.
  • Career Advice:  Become a teacher because all our teachers are really old and will be retiring soon.  Go to college.  The government will give you money.  Don’t worry that the education may cost more than you will ever get out of it.
  • A Trip Down Memory Lane:  Sputnik, getting a job in the local factory without college, the Transcontinental Railroad, the Interstate Highways, etc.
  • Illegal Aliens pledge allegiance to the flag but might be deported anyway, at the schools that still allow the Pledge to be said.
  • Rebuild America for the 21st Century, patch roads, high-speed internet to all (still waiting).  Didn’t this all get done with the Stimulus?  I guess not.
  • Now that the Dems and I have rammed Obamacare through, I am now willing to listen to other ideas and concerns that I already heard but ignored before signing it into law.
  • Debt is a bad thing.  Let’s freeze spending at an unsustainable level and call that good enough.  But wait, let’s invest in infrastructure and high-speed rail to 80% of Americans.
  • Tax the Rich.  I won’t be happy until I can take more money from the rich and give it to people who don’t do much.
  • Government should function well.  Kinda like the oil spill last spring.  Salmon shouldn’t have to go to three or more agencies to be eaten.  Perhaps he should have an agency devoted to Salmon.  All the people who work for the three agencies can then go to work for the Salmon  Agency.
  • Muslims are part of America.  Al Queda is bad.  Taliban is bad.
  • Iran and North Korea shouldn’t have nuclear weapons.  No plan.
  • Support our troops made up of diversity.  Allow ROTC on Ivy League campuses like the one I attended.  Put the recruiting booths right next to the Gay and Lesbian Club booths as they are now drawing from the same pool.
  • Let Illegal Aliens become citizens.
  • Reform Social Security but do not put anything or anyone at risk.
  • Five Pillars of Plans.  Pres. Obama is fond of pillars.  They look real good in stadiums.
  • Things we didn’t hear:  $3 gallon gas, foreclosures, unemployment statistics, the value of the dollar, food shortages across the world, where to cut, the killing of Christians in the Middle East, wage stagnation, Fannie and Freddie, Pension Time Bomb, Higher Education Bubble, the scary picture of Lil’ Wayne on Rolling Stone, Just for Men Haircolor…

  1. I can’t thank you sufficiently for the articles on your web-site. I know you placed a lot of time and effort into all of them and truly hope you know how deeply I enjoy it. I hope I am able to do the identical thing for another individual someday.
