    Duke for Prime Minister?

    What do you think? This is a follow-up from a comment made by Vautrin that was funny....

    I wonder what kind of life I would have if Duke were elected? Would I be moved to a poshy place to play shuffleboard, pool, bingo, and get a state-of-the-art walker in my golden years? :? but

    I think, as Duke is unmarried, you would be forced to entertain all the world leaders, Luba. With your cooking and your wit.

    Or you would form a national committee to force marriage upon your son; can't be too unrepresentative when visiting other nations. Taking the Bachelor to new extremes.

    I'd vote Duke, if I were Canadian.

    Are you kidding me? I'd hire someone to do both and just sit back and laugh, what I'm REALLY good at!

    I already imagine you sitting at a table with say George W. Bush. And Duke making remarks on Clinton.

    And what would Duke do with these powers?

    Perhaps we should make a list of proposals Duke would make?

    1. Make the use of pants as an item of clothing illegal. .

    Re:

    Ya this is hilarious. I thought I'd leave you all alone to ponder the possibilities before injecting my $.02 CDN worth

    I've been busy making suggestions at cPanelŽ on how we can fix up the site because I'm tired of looking at it. Right now there's just a lot of debate on what to do and when/how to do it so it's consuming more time than I have.

    I've also made my first payment on a dedicated server so I should start migrating websites in the upcoming weeks to what will represent (hopefully) our last move, ever. Since the process will take up to 3 weeks before we're situated, I'm not really too keen on starting the process all over again.

    If I were elected though I'd:

    - make it very difficult to own/operate and/or, represent a crappy webhosting company.
    - legalize pot and tax it to help pay off our debt and help re-build our Pension Plans, Educational Programs and Parks Programs.
    - legalize eye for an eye justice where convicted felons were punished in a manner consistent with the victim's wishes.
    - make pants at the workplace optional.
    - rally for a 9 hour/day, 4 day work week instead of 5, 8 hour days.
    - deport convicted felons (usually gang related) who commit violent crimes.
    - castrate convicted rapists, the same goes for child molesters (no anesthetic).
    - make it mandatory for convicted felons to drive with a hot pink license plate on their vehicle so the public is aware of who they are when mixed back in with society.
    - surgically implant a GPS tracking chip at the base of a convicted felons spine.
    - create massive tax shelter programs to companies that embrace child development.

    The problem is most of you here wouldn't understand most of it...

    If I said "stalingrad pipe with roser", I don't think you all would find the humor in it.

    rofl, too bad we don't know someone who has the screenshots, that would certainly clear things up a bit.

    I sure miss those days, back when BF was the game and we all were n00bs.

    Re:

    Yes, we know you have been extremely busy with your other projects. And we are all thankful for the efforts you make Duke.

    - Are you sure you do not want to pursue to legalise torture of the CEOs of crappy webhosting companies if their service fails?

    - legalize pot and tax it to help pay off our debt and help re-build our Pension Plans, Educational Programs and Parks Programs.
    Agreed.
    - make pants at the workplace optional.
    Optional?!?
    - make it mandatory for convicted felons to drive with a hot pink license plate on their vehicle so the public is aware of who they are when mixed back in with society.
    Yes, but what if convicted felon lends his car to a non-convicted friend? Or vice versa?
    - surgically implant a GPS tracking chip at the base of a convicted felons spine.
    That definitely has some potential. Same holds for the public at large (in case someone goes missing, for instance).
    - create massive tax shelter programs to companies that embrace child development.
    Totally agree.
