This morning a local news channel asked this question on its Facebook page:
“On this Presidents' Day, we want to know: If you could be President, what is one thing you would do?”
Here are some of the comments of the less cerebrally capable of our citizens. Remember, the question was "one thing." These people are idiots.
Quit giving so many foodstamps away, and some tighter conditions on the system
bring honor and prestige back to the office
Approve the Keystone pipeline project on day one!
Uphold the Constitution!
I would cut congress pay and benefits instead of those of our troops!
Bring God back into the country
Read the Constitution and then FOLLOW IT!
Make drug testing mandatory for any type of government assistance.
Close our borders.
Cut off welfare completly...sum ppl take advantage becuz they r too lazy to go to work...
Deport all illegals, close our borders, cut funding to prisons (make the inmates work for themselves)
Cut all unnecessary regulations, laws, and taxes. And institute a flat tax after kicking out everyone who isn't a citizen.
Get rid of all the regulatory bodies.
I would go back to the basics of the constitution.
no more obamacare costs to much for what you get.

Republican US Senator from Idaho Michael Crapo was arrested in Virginia on 12/23 for driving under the influence after running a red light. Crapo is also a Mormon. Nice.
Not surprisingly, this epitome of ethics:
- Voted YES on allowing some lobbyist gifts to Congress. (Mar 2006)
- Voted NO on establishing the Senate Office of Public Integrity. (Mar 2006)
- Voted NO on banning "soft money" contributions and restricting issue ads. (Mar 2002)
For more on this craptastic piece of self-righteous hypocrisy, check his voting record.

We interrupt this program for a secession reality check.
As of last night, there are petitions in seven states urging secession from the United States. The signature breakdown follows:
Texas 108,000 (.421% of state population)Louisiana 35,000 (.765% of state population)
Tennessee 29,000 (.453% of state population)
Georgia 30,000 (.306% of state population)
North Carolina 28,000 (.290% of state population)
Florida 32,000 (.168% of state population)
Alabama 28,000 (.583% of state population)
Total 290,000 signatures
Wow! 290,000 is a pretty hefty number. That number of people would fill the huge Los Angeles Coliseum (former home of my beloved football Rams) almost three times! Holy shit! Dust off your quills and start drafting your constitutions!
If I did my math right (and please remember, I suck at math!), 290,000 signatures is only NINETY-THREE ONE THOUSANDTHS of ONE percent of the total population of the United States.
I think the mathematical formula goes something like:290,000 x 100 / 311,591,917 = 0.093070450219669851063562730351571
Again – that’s NINETY-THREE ONE THOUSANDTHS of ONE percent of our citizenry.
In closing, I encourage secessionists, and wannabe secessionists to use the numbers to put these numbers, and everything else into perspective.
Abraham Lincoln once urged us to remember that a "government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
