A Wish List For Obama

Dear Editor,

Here is my wish list for President Barack Obama and his new administration. Didn't hear a lot about the issues during the election as I know that the paramount goal was getting elected. Now that the honeymoon is over, as a supporter of the President, here are some of the things I hope he and his impressive Cabinet will address, and with the support of the people YES WE CAN get them done:

Reformation of the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) with particular focus on the reinstitution of the Fairness Doctrine and modification of the "minority" ownership rules to quantitatively and qualitatively increase the legitimate "majority share" ownership of media properties by people of color;

Stop the genocide in The Sudan;

More ethnic, gender, cultural and/or ideological diversity on the Supreme Court;

Recommitment to UNESCO's growth and expansion to make it more functional, pro-active and visible as a viable instrument to effect positive global cooperation and mutual respect among diverse peoples, cultures and nations;

Renewed financial commitment to, and administrative restructuring of, the National Endowment of the Arts;

Support of Reparations and Restitution to those African-American Americans who are descendant of African slaves, based upon United Nations, World Court and the Charter of the Nuremburg definitions of Genocide and Crimes Against Humanity and the Civil Liberties Act of 1966;

Restructuring and revamping of the Department of Justice, Federal Trade Commission and Federal Drug Administration to eliminate any political partisanship, administrative incompetence, ethnic or cultural bias and/or ideological partiality and myopia regarding policies, processes and/or practices that are part of their respective organizational departmental cultures; and

Unconditional assistance to Haiti by first abolishing at least 50% of their foreign debt.


Return to top

Let's see now. You want the fairness doctrine back in. I am guessing that you only want this pointed at talk radio and not on the newspapers and television stations. THe one arena not ruled by liberals and you want to silence them.

The supreme court discisions are usually 5-4. THat seems pretty balanced to me. We have a woman an afro-american and various ethnic differences. Reparations are no problem for me. Pick a number (dollar amount) look to see if the person in question has received financial support from any government agency, subtract that amount and then give no future support to that person, case solved. Restructure the government (that will happen)Ha. Haiti. No problem. Please start sending 50% of your take home pay to haiti to start it off and we can go from there
