as the dictator of the united states, i would… (Part VI)


I just looked up at grandpa with a grin on my face and answered, “What!!!! and commit mutiny on the best captain I know? Besides, grandpa, you know swimming is not my best way of getting to shore. Nope, I’m still on board and will remain on board until you order that we abandon ship. But will have to admit I’m looking for my life jacket at the moment.“

grandpa’s friend just looked at me and began to chuckle at my words and when he did so did the rest of the small crowd then he looked at grandpa with a grin and said,

“You have done a fine job of raising the boy and I think he speaks for the rest of us also. So, lead on, me Cap’itan”.

Grandpa chuckled at the words and then continued,

“Congress you have work to do now, real work. First of all, members of the Senate, you are now holding a position in this government that you no longer have the constitutional authority to hold. So, pack up your belongings, send your staff to their homes and you go with them. The Senate is in recess until the State governments have appointed men to be their representatives in the federal government.

House members, since the Senate is now in recess no new laws can be passed so you have but one job at the moment. Comb through the history of laws that this government has enacted by the authority of these repealed amendments, gather them up and place every one of them out on Constitution ave. I know that the pages of tax laws will, by themselves, be enough to pave the entire avenue. That job alone should take you until the end of your terms in office.

Supreme court members, the same task is yours. Comb through your history and gather up all of the decisions that related to these amendments and add them to the stack of laws that Congress has piled up on the street. For they no longer can be declared as constitutional law.

Given that the government will no longer have the revenues necessary to sustain all of the departments of government I will only say this. Department heads, you are now closed with the exceptions of a few departments, so start handing out notices to each and every employee and then close down. The exceptions being the Department of Defense, Department of State, and the Department of Justice along with the Department of the Treasury.

One more thing that will effect each and every employee of the federal government. Each and every employee will take a cut in pay that is equal to the tax bracket that they filed on their last federal and State income tax returns. The only exception are members of the military. Their pay cut will be equal to 3/4 of the tax brackets that they filed on their last tax returns.

All federal employee unions are now banned. And all pension plans no longer exist. Working for the government is a service to the people of this nation. It is not a career choice. If you are seeking a career, join private enterprise.”

With this said grandpa again paused to allow what he was saying sink into the heads of those listening.
As I looked into the faces of those listening. The only thing I could see was disbelief that they were hearing the words being expressed this day.

    Regarding “All federal employee unions are now banned. And all pension plans no longer exist. Working for the government is a service to the people of this nation. It is not a career choice. If you are seeking a career, join private enterprise.”
    …how much is the dictator paid?

  2. The Griper

    right now, BB, room and board with all of the extras that goes along with being the leader of a nation. don’t need any money at the moment. figure that with all of the chaos i am creating i may not live long enough to collect any more than that. 🙂

    btw, wanna be my Secretary of the Treasury? i figure with your frugal ways you’d make a good pick.

  3. BB-Idaho

    Secretary of the Treasury? Uh, well, at my advanced age and limited talent…..
    perhaps Minister without portfolio ?

  4. The Griper

    i’m not looking for men of talent, BB. there are only two criteria that the men of government need to possess while i be the leader of this nation. Wisdom be one and that comes with age and experience. a cool-headed logical approach to the solutions of any problems they might encounter is the other.

    and over the years that we have been friends those are the two qualities that i have seen in you. that is why i have always considered you as a silent partner of this blog.

    as for the position you suggested, minister without a portfolio, the author of that wikipedia piece doesn’t know American politics very well. There is a position that would meet his every criteria in American politics. That position being the Vice President of the United States. Constitutionally he has only one responsibility and that is to cast the deciding vote in the Senate. so, the position is yours. welcome to government.

    Vice-Dictator? What’d Sherman say..if nominated, I will not run etc? But, in checking around I found there is already a vice dictator: Herein referred to as ‘Ralph’:

    “Tacoma Area Chapter. (Washington State, Pacific Northwest, Northwest Canada & Alaska). Our meetings are held on the 3rd full weekend of each month, Each meeting place and time is decided by our volunteer hosts. We welcome everyone to visit and/or join our club. Our goal is to keep Studebakers alive and well in our eyes and hearts.

    Dictator:
    Mable Jones
    Vice Dictator:
    Ralph Novarra
    Secretary:
    LaDonna Gange
    Treasurer/Membership:
    Sheryl Smith
    email
    Newsletter: The Washington Dictator
    Editor: Dennis Massie”
    ….BTW, Griper, being Dictator, you have the power to appoint a ‘Minister without
    Portfolio’.. VP is so, well, look at Aaron Burr, Elbrige Berry, Hannibal Hamlin, Schuyler Colfax, Garrot Hobart: VPs all. And in the interest of self-preservation, as Vice
    Dictator, I would be in an uncomfortable position should you be overthrown, which
    is as I understand, fairly common in the dictating business… 🙂
    Have you selected a cabinet yet?

    “Have you selected a cabinet yet?”
    that was going to be part of a future post on this issue.

    “And in the interest of self-preservation, as Vice
    Dictator, I would be in an uncomfortable position should you be overthrown, which
    is as I understand, fairly common in the dictating business…”

    i have a feeling, BB, that anyone who held a position in this government would be in that position even as minister without a portfolio. if overthrown the one’s taking over will want to punish everyone associated with me, even if it is by the use of trumped up charges.

Be respecful or your comment will be deleted. Also know that Alinsky tactics do not phase me
