In a perfect world, the president will address anything and everything that the average American's brain could possibly come up with, and nothing would ever get done.

odds are that whole non-constitutional-kill-list thing won't be getting much coverage either.

No doubt Brock Obomber will not discuss his:

War on Whistleblowers

Drone strikes everywhere

Ilegal drone surveillance of many, many countries

EconomicWarfare waged against specific countries, most notably Iran since the halted selling oil in petrodollars and switched to selling it in Euros.

His destruction of habeas corpus -- due process, etc.

His signing of the NDAA and what that entailed.

His abysmal performance on behalf of the citizenry of this country; continuing to fudge the real unemployment statistics.

His position as the latest Wall Street puppet in the White House.

His refusal to acknowledge the laws of the land, and go after the banksters/speculators/traders and super-criminals in general.

His bullcrap record on everything!

I'd bring up meat just to push Ted Nuget's buttons. He's primed for guns but any kind of moderately enlightened comments on meat or women's breasts or big trucks is all it will take to about give him a stroke. Imagine the video of Ted Nugent being dragged screaming from the gallery.

The angry white man of the 21st century is a deeply sensitive, delicately feeling creature that upsets oh so easily. I expect fainting couches to make a comeback.

I can't buy an antibiotic for my pet without an Rx. The Obama administration has discussed extending this rule to livestock, but a representative at Jeffers Pet Supply just told me I could buy livestock antibiotics without a prescription.

Considering how much I have paid doctors and vets to get access to antibiotics for myself and my pets, I find it kind of bullshit that agribusiness can just buy the stuff.

It is time to build up a 3rd and 4th party yet or are there still lessor of two evils we have to grudgingly support ad infinitum?

Look man, we gotta reduce the global population somehow... and improving microbes ability to get us sick and dead is a perfectly valid way to do that.

Keep eating meat, people! Nothing to see here. Move along.

(Vegetarians, here's the special password for the post-apocalypse rendezvous...)
