    Imagine that tomorrow morning, the Secret Service came knocking at your door. You have been chosen, effective today, to replace Barack Obama as the next POTUS.

    (Yes, I'm well aware that this is constitutionally impossible. Just work with me here, okay?)

    The agents are there to transport you - and your spouse and kids, if you've got either - to DC to be sworn in that afternoon.

    What would your plan be for the next 100 days to put the country on whatever you think is the right track?

    Remember, you still have to get the existing Congress to support you.

    By lunch time, IsNtReal would not exist.
    All " drugs" would be legal.
    The death penalty would cover ' assaults' all the way down the ladder to stealing a piece of bubble gum.

    Look for Ashton Krucher and the hidden camera?

    Ask how long you have to have the job to get lifetime healthcare and a big pension.

    I'd merge the US with Canada. I'd call the new country "Canada" and have a big red maple leaf as our flag. And everyone would have to wear beaver hats with tails.

    That is pretty mean. Illegals don't seem to like Canada much. Plus there would be a beaver shortage and that would just spell trouble.

    In no particular order:

    Lift the embargo on Cuba
    Dismiss every appointed bureaucrat.
    Furlough damn near all the rest.
    Retire 1/2 of the flag rank officers in the Pentagon
    Begin the redeployment of all troops abroad to the nearest US territory
    Re-assign the entire DEA to Adak Alaska.
    Order the Treasury to begin producing U.S. Treasury notes with an exchange value of 1 treasury note for every 5 federal reserve notes.
    Order an independent audit of the Federal Reserve and Fort Knox gold reserve.
    Grab a beer and some beef enchiladas and take a nap...someplace real secure.

    Five minutes after they arrived, I would announce my resignation.

    I'd paint the white house taupe and call it the taupe house.

    Lock pelosi in a closet.

    Fire Hillary.

    I do not think that will work. To many gun tottening Americans that would reject that option.
