Why not ask for a partridge and a pear tree as well since Christmas is coming up.

Obviously someone thinks that they can pay for all these things with monopoly money rather than real money.

In addition, they are looking through the rose colored glasses of "America is the root of all the problems in the world" and dont actually live in the real world.


I am suprised that they dont have nationalize all illegal immigrants and double social security payments for all as well as gaurentee a private doctor on a minutets beck and call for each citizen in the US. Maybe they just forgot about those things.

I would ask for some of what ever they are smoking but I am sure that it is illegal in most states. Although it probably wont be if they get their wish.
