What would YOU do?
    #1769416 - 08/01/03 03:00 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I dont even like to read this forum anymore, because it just seems like people whining to me..."The President did this, He shouldnt have." "America SUCKS!" Well, what would YOU like to see in a government? I mean, if you were President/Dictator/Fuhrer/Junta Head, what types of things would you implement?

I mean, its SO easy to criticize and whine and bitch and moan, but its alot harder to think of SOLUTIONS. I rarely hear any, besides "Kill the Pigs!!" "Blow Up Canada!" "Shoot Bush!" None of those 3 is going to solve all the problems of the world. One of them might help, but its not going to do it all.

Just looking for ideas out there...I mean, some of us are active in politics... www.johnkerry.com But I dont think the majority are doing ANYTHING. Here's your chance....

"Kill the Canookians!!" "Blow Up Bush" "Shoot Pigs!" Sorry, couldn't help it.


What I would do is..............



BLAME CANADA!!!
Sheila: Time's have changed
Our kids are kids are getting worse
They wont obey their parents
They just want to fart and curse!
Sharon: Should we blame the government?
Liane: Or blame society?
Dads: Or should we blame the images on TV?
Sheila: No, blame Canada
Everyone: Blame Canada
Sheila: With all their beady little eyes
And flappin heads so full of lies
Everyone: Blame Canada
Blame Canada
Sheila: We need to form a full assault
Everyone: It's Canadas fault!
Sharon: Don't blame me
For my son Stan
He saw the darn cartoon
And now he's off to join the Klan!
Liane: And my boy Eric once
Had my picture on his shelf
But now when I see him he tells me to fuck myself!
Sheila: Well, blame Canada
Everyone: Blame Canada
It seems that everythings gone wrong
Since Canada came along
Everyone: Blame Canada
Blame Canada
Some Guy: There not even a real country anyway
Ms. McCormick: My son could've been a doctor or a lawyer it's true
Instead he burned up like a piggy on a barbecue
Everyone: Should we blame the matches?
Should we blame the fire?
Or the doctors who allowed him to expire?
Sheila: Heck no!
Everyone: Blame Canada
Blame Canada
Sheila: With all their hockey hubbabaloo
Liane: And that bitch Anne Murray too
Everyone: Blame Canada
Shame on Canada
The smut we must stop
The trash we must smash
Laughter and fun
must all be undone
We must blame them and cause a fuss
Before someone thinks of blaming uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuus

I would be a lot less critical of the government if I didn't have to live in constant fear of them putting me in jail for doing absolutely nothing wrong (ie- drug use)

Also I think the government could do more to keep big business from using its money and power to take advantage of the little guys.

If I were in control, I would definiately not encourage breeding through child tax write offs

I also think more could be done to protect the environment and improve education

and of course, I would cut the military's budget by 2/3, use 1/3 to make a payment on the national debt and the other 1/3 would go to NASA and physics research.

I would also try to eliminate coercion and good ol boy networks from the job market, as they are both unfair and counterproductive.

thats all i can think of right now

Just out of curiousity...You dont think that the people have the power? I mean...If people REALLY hated George Bush as much as they say they do, they could not re-elect him. The very fact that he has so much power today is the result of what the PEOPLE did.

The PEOPLE have the power. They just use it very unwisely...In my opinion, of course.

Never again use South Park sarcasm.

It would appear many don't get it.

I don't think there are many people here in the USA saying "America Sucks" and meaning it - I think the idea that many of these people are trying to get across is that American Citizens and American Leaders are two completely different "races," and that the American Leaders do indeed suck, but the PEOPLE, the general people, are great, even if a bit misguided.

A simple search will find dozens if not hundreds of instances.

Try: "America Sucks", "Fuck America", "Amerika", and "Amerikkka".

Don't let yourself be conned so easily. No wonder Bush has such an easy time.

The phrase "America sucks" has been posted nowhere in this forum for the last 3 months except in this thread and an earlier post by pinksharkmeat.

Try living in reality rather than fantasy.
