Let's all go back into the closet in '14


Every time these power-hungry, money-grubbing, corrupt, political jackasses pass a bill, it restricts freedom or raises taxes. Kind of like having a mechanic that’s your wife’s cousin. He can’t do anything right, but you can’t fire him, so it’s best that he just stands around and doesn’t do any damage.

Another prize in the Cracker Jack box would be the long overdue purge of the Republican Party. For too long, we have been told that moderation and compromise are the keys to victory. So, we nominate McCain and Romney for president, and our congressional leadership is headed by Boehner and McConnell.

We lose, and compromise our country into massive debt. It’s time for these “has-beens” to go home! Their time is over. New, young blood is needed.

Of course, we wish for more continued success for Obamacare. It is off to such a promising start that Leno, Letterman, Kimmel and Stewart have years worth of material. 

One last wish, and that would be for an end to the nonsensical moratorium and bans on gas exploration in New York. Must our economy decay along with our culture?
