If you've spent any time with me at all, you've heard the title words come out of my mouth at some point. Some things that occur in our society seem so easily fixable, but you just need to have absolute power to overcome the objections from those with power and money. And yes, that implies that many of these things DON'T happen already because of people in power and/or the rich. That makes this entry a little less fun and a little more sad unfortunately. All of my suggestions are achievable.
Instead of categorizing these, I'll just start running off the action items....after all, I'm dictator on the move!!!
First and foremost, Superbowl Sunday will be moved to Saturday. It's just stupid to have it on Sunday and then have people go to work the next day. The site will be rotated around the league to ALL stadiums as well, not just warm weather and domed stadiums. That's bullshit. And No, I won't just give you Monday off. We will be in a productive society.
People who kill other people and whom would otherwise be put on death row will be publicly executed. They will be hung from a central area in town as a reminder of what happens to killers. And pedophiles, also publicly executed. We just don't need that kind of trash in our cities. And we used to do this! No I don't think it's too grisly. I think it sends a very strong message however.
Drug dealers are in for a rude awakening as well. I realize that if there were no buyers then there would be no market, but I also realize that people are easily tempted and are generally stupid. Dealers will also be publicly executed. Watch out gangbangers, I'm coming for you.
Marijuana however will be legalized and taxed. The drinking age will be eliminated. Not to 18, eliminated. The onus will be on the parents to teach their kids.
These next few aren't actually being prevented by the rich and powerful. We just don't do them and we should. Under my administration, we would!!
No one under 30 will be allowed to get married. You're young and stupid before then and many people remain stupid after 30.
Similarly, everyone will be implanted with those multi-year contraceptives when they are 13 or so. No teenage pregnancies. No unwanted pregnancies. No irresponsible fathers or drug dependent mothers. The contraceptives will be removed after they pass mental, physical and drug tests (and they are over 30): basically everyone will have to get a reproduction license whether you're married or not. Just getting married doesn't give you the right to reproduce. The economic and moral weight of this issue will free our country's minds to think about and focus on other issues.
Finally, for this entry, children born of illegal immigrants will not be citizens and will have the same legal status and rights (limited) as their parents.
Tomorrow: speed limits, taxes and changing the envrionment of some states.
