If I were President of the United States of America I would say if you have a gun with out a license you would go to jail, you would have to be a police officer or a licensed hunter.

"Good Evening ladies and gentlemen. How are you doing?” "Great!" “Good, now I am going to talk about helping the whole world. I'm holding up this key, (holds up a GIANT KEY) up here and I want to talk about unlocking the minds of all the people in the audience. Now I want two volunteers to come up here and line up. You lady, how did you help someone?” (She has doctor clothes on with a stethoscope around her neck.) “I brought food, water, and clothes and I built shelter for the needy in Haiti.” “Thank you lady. You may go sit down now. Now little girl, how did you help someone?” "I helped a little boy when bullies beat him up and I said I saw those bullies beat you up. People care about you and I'm one of them and then I gave him a hug." "Thank you little girl. You may go sit down now. Helping people is easy. Think with love and help." We have an MP3 recording we would like to also share with you somehow...

If you do not know, hamburgers (with cheese on top) come from cows.
Please only eat veggie burgers.
Shelter more dogs and some cats, too. Take care of your pet and make life better for your pet.
No more taking elephant tusks to make things.
Give peace to others. Give them life and treat them well.
Love your family.
Let the kids do more:
Catch butterflies and give them back
Going in adventures
Do Chinese jump rope
Go on the taxi boat
We should do those things to make life better. Happy New Year and have a good 2011!

Right now, we are not acting as a whole. We are acting like a divided and segregated country. And we need to do something about it. Black or white, rich or poor, child or adult, democrat or republican, we are America, and we need to start acting like it. We need to start focusing on the big picture and stop fighting this worthless battle about who knows what among ourselves. We need to start focusing on the fact that one in four children live in households that struggle emensley to put food on the table. That's about 16.7 million children. Or maybe that about 46 people get shot daily in the us. Or even the fact that after all these years we still haven't figured out how to plainly, just get along. And the sad thing is, that problems such as the ones that i just listed are never going to get solved unless we act united. So for the sake of a fresh new year lets all put aside our differences to try whip this country back into shape. Lets all show the world a different America, one that we can all be proud of.
