CENTRAL VIEW for Monday, September 9, 2013

by William Hamilton, Ph.D.

Are your ready for some Fantasy Politics?

Lots of folks play Fantasy Football these days. How about some Fantasy Politics? A future White House press briefing might go like this:

"Ladies and gentlemen: I am the new presidentís press officer. If yaíll think Iím some redneck you see on reality TV, then thatís yaíllís problem. The president directed me to tell yaíll to expect some major changes. For notepaper, yaíll can use the back of them Democrat National Committee Talking Points yaíll rely on. They ainít nothing but male bovine excreta (MBE), anyway.

"First of all, the president ainít gonna be issuin’ a bunch of executive orders that are contrary to the U.S. Constitution. So, all them previous 900 or so executive orders are hereby null and void. As for all them 49 or so unconstitutional political Czars, they’s all lookin’ for jobs.

If the people want a particular action taken, they need to contact their members of Congress and maybe weíll git-er-done. In fact, the president has sworn to faithfully execute all the laws. No more pickiní and choosiní. Speaking of Congress, the president wonít sign any legislation that does not apply to everyone in the United States, to include members of Congress.

"As for the Supreme Court, the president suggests they go back applyin’ the Constitution to their decisions. Of course, bein’ a separate branch of government, thatís up to them. But the Supremes would be well-advised to stop inventin’ stuff that ainít in the U.S. Constitution. You J-school grads, listen up. The Supremes ainít some Mo-town singiní group.

"Regardin’ the Joint Chiefs of Staff and all them generals and admirals, the president is goin’ to make some really stupid proposals that have nothing to do with combat readiness but have to do with social and political correctness. The generals and admirals who tell him he is full of MBE will stay on. The wimps who tell the president his ideas are the greatest thing since von Clausewitz will join the previous president on the golf course. As for foreign and military policy: If it ainít a vital national interest -- such as freedom-of-the-seas -- itís just more MBE.

"Also, those Republicans-In-Name-Only (RINOs) might as well join the other party. No more White House dinners for them. The president needs men and women of principle. And no more usin’ Air Force One as a political payoff machine.

"Turnin’ to health care: The system installed by the previous president stuck all the taxpayers with the health insurance tab for all the non-taxpayers. But the new system doesnít provide affordable, quality-health care. Meanwhile, until the president gets that sucker repealed, the poor folk are stuck with it.

"Notice the British Royals used a private clinic to birth their new prince, not their crappy National Health Service. As for our rich folks, they can fly off to Thailand or the Cayman Islands and get all the health care they need. Stand by for a plan that uses the forces inherent in the free-market to produce an affordable health-care system. Wonít be no more death panels.

"On immigration, them who have been standin’ in line the longest will get the consideration they deserve. If illegal immigrants want to stay here and they get caught, they go to the very back of the line.

"Okay. Thatís it. I know all yaíll have deadlines. Please, no more MBE."
