I could easily have spent that money on what have been termed "frivolities", and achieved much better results. My first thought, heartlessly rejected , was to convert Iowa into a giant chessboard and rename the state after Bobbie Fischer. My second was to build a Colossus of Rhode Island, based on Lysander Spooner. My third was to forcibly rename everyone in the US "Voltairine de Cleyr", give them tax rebates and hire them to crew blimps that deliver hypo-allergenic shampoo samples to Sweden. My fourth was to reprint Rights of Man — on Florida — using lego blocks.

Any one, or any combination, of my remedies would have done much more that the idiotic Obama plan.

Remind me whenever you’re running for anything. I’ll be available for campaigning, funding, and surprising your opponent with a lead pipe as he comes off the ice.

(I especially liked the colossus idea.)
