It looks bogus, but it was a funny read. I got this in my email today.

Bill Cosby said:
I HAVE DECIDED TO BECOME A WRITE-IN CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT.HERE IS MY PLATFORM:

(1) 'Press 1 for English' is immediately banned. English is the official language; speak it or wait at the border until you can.

(2) We will immediately go into a four year isolationist posture to straighten out the nation's economy. NO imports, no exports.
We will use the 'Wal-Mart policy, 'If we ain't got it, you don't need it.'

(3) When imports are allowed, there will be a 65% import tax on it.

(4) All retired military personnel will be required to man one of our many observation towers on the southern border.(six month tour) They will be under strict orders not to fire on SOUTHBOUND aliens.

(5) Social security will immediately return to its original state. If you put nothing into it, you will get nothing out of it. The president or any other politician will not be eligible.
(6) Welfare - Checks will be handed out on Fridays at the end of 40 hours of community service, and the successful completion of a urinalysis test.

(7) Professional Athletes --Steroids - The FIRST time you check positive you're banned for life.

(8) Crime -There are no more life sentences. If convicted of murder, you will be put to death by the same method you chose for your victim; gun, knife, strangulation, etc. Sentence to be carried out immediately following conviction.

(9) One export will be allowed; Wheat, The world needs to eat. A bushel of American wheat will be the exact price of a barrel of oil.

(10) All foreign aid using American taxpayer money will immediately cease, and the saved money will pay off the national debt and ultimately lower taxes. When disasters occur around the world, we'll ask the American people if they want to donate to a disaster fund, and each citizen can make the decision whether it's a worthy cause.

(11) The cost of college tuition (at all public universities) will be pegged to students' G.P.A.s The higher a student's G.P.A., the lower tuition.

(12) The National Anthem will be played at all appropriate ceremonies, sporting events, outings, etc.

Sorry if I stepped on anyone's toes but a vote for me will get you better than what you have, and better than what you're going to get. Thanks for listening, and remember to write in my name on the ballot in November.
God Bless America !!!!!!!!!!!

In that case, those welfare checks need to be a hell of a lot fatter. What's the minimum wage these days?

Once upon a time I was in hard times and had to use welfare. I got a whole whopping $300 a month. I would have worked 40 hours a week if you paid me $300 a week.
