Writer's Block: Happy birthday Mr. President!

What is one thing that needs to be changed in your country?

Ugh. Today, science sucks. I can only choose one thing? Or worse, I have to be responsible for choosing one thing? I mean… my grasp of the nuances of the economy is… weak at best. Healthcare is an issue, and sadly the first thing that sprang to mind, because I’m pretty poor and heartily sick [hur hur] of the just… appalling rates for insurance. But then again, the way we hemorrhage cash is also something of a problem, the debt is astronomical. I mean, I don’t often get to use the word “astronomical” unless I’m literally talking about astronomy – but… Pluto is not up for discussion, and the debt is bloody astronomical.

But I think far and away the biggest problem I have with the government as it stands, is the assumption that the government should fix everything. Please oh please big daddy, make my mortgage payments for me and hold my hand while I cross the street.

… that went to a weird place, but that’s where I am.

P.S. When I was little, I thought he was singing "Give me the Beach Boys" and I agreed wholeheartedly. :-)
