Writer's Block: If I were president ...

What would you do if you were president or prime minister for a day?
Ha! You can't do anything as President in one day. At least not as long as the Republicans still exist. Look how long Obama's been in office, and how much the Repubicans have been stonewalling all his attempts to do any good.

Yeah, there's a few things you can do in a day. Pardoning prisoners, for example. Give a mass pardon to everyone imprisoned for non-violent drug offenses, for example. Or to people imprisoned for non-violent sex offenses.

Of course, the catch is that most executive orders can be undone by your successor issuing contrary executive orders. There are some that can't be undone, like pardons, but most can be.

Let's see... Executive Orders doing the following:

1. Repealing DOMA.

2. Making it illegal to make gay marriage illegal.

3. Require that only violent criminals with a high likelihood of repeat offending can be put on sex offender registries.

4. Make it illegal to make anal or oral sex illegal.

5. Make it illegal to ban the sale of sex toys.

6. Mandatory sex ed in middle school. (and "abstinence only" doesn't count)

7. Legalizing marijuana.

8. Legalizing prostitution. (With some provisos)

Then pardon anyone in jail for non-violent drug offenses and for being a prostitute. (Pimps would stay in prison as one of the provisos. A new system would be put in place to ensure the womens' safety.)

You can if you're a Republican.

I'd fuck some celebrities and then jerk off to the scandal.
