Sunday Scribblings #81

Sunday Scribblings prompted:
I thought I would lighten things up a little bit this week. The prompt this week is: "My first act as Queen/ King of the World will be..."

This is my response but I didn't write it until I watched the nightly news, so my levity lessened:

My first act as Queen of the World will be to demote all queens and kings, rulers and presidents, congress and attorneys.

The next: rescind all laws except for the original Ten. Use them.

If I survive that, repair social security, the infrastructure and send warmongers to a man-made island without food, pensions or communication.

Then I’ll inject drinking water with common sense and kindly thoughts.

Elevate education to the level the world needs. Direct the hackers and spammers to improve communication, software and Internet safety and freedom.

To make life better for the living. I’ll not save everyone by medical intervention only to let them starve while trying to pay their medical bills.

Money spent for meds advertising will be diverted to repair those whom the meds damaged.

A maximum wage rather than a minimum wage could stop the corrupts whose annual income would be capped at three million a year. Surely that would cause them give up their frenetic screwples.

Now at the end of my first day, I’ll go to sleep with a smile of security and happiness on my queenly face. Tomorrow is another day.

you make some wonderful points here that I have not heard elsewhere. I nominate you queen: I am sure someone will be by shortly to second my nomination

I didn't make the connection that you were the same Tumblewords that is on the blogroll at Huckleberries. It is nice to hear from another northern Idaho voice!

"Then I’ll inject drinking water with common sense, fairy dust and kindly thoughts."

Your wishes for world peace, more equality, and better support for the living are all wonderful, but it's this that I truly love. That, and the word "screwples" - brilliant!

And if I survive that....
I like your changes, it sounds like common sense to me.
Maybe I've had that drinking water already?
I second ascenderisesabove nomination!

Shelby said...

Were you once the Queen of Canada? Did you quit your job? We do have the medical part covered, the rest is a no go! Excellent ideas Queen of Humanity! I humbly bow to you! Now get to work....there is an urgency here!

Peace Giggles

I like the maximum wage idea.

I love your ideas, particularly the maximum wage and sending the warmongers off to an island.

PaulS said...

Cool. Can I come and live in the land of you?

Struggling/Wenona said...

Hail to Queen Tumbleweeds!
I love this. especially the drinking water!!

Writer on Board said...

Ah, third grade days. Thank you for bringing it back, Sue. And I love your Queenly changes. Except for the fairy dust. Fairy dust killed my cousin. It's more dangerous than people think. A total gateway drug. Be careful.

I had no idea! I was thinking of good things, Writer on Board. I've deleted that portion. Thanks for the heads-up. And sorry for your loss!

ana said...

Love the re-formation...nice ideas...if only water came with the common sense infusion...

Great post!!

Sandie said...

Great post. I love the idea of a maximum wage in place of a minimum one and going back to the 'original 10 laws' for living in community.

Terri said...

You're first day as queen would accomplish much more than mine would. Thanks for stopping by.

Ally Bean said...

Excellent ideas. With you in charge the world will be in good shape in 2-3 days max. What a wonderful queen you'll make.

forgetfulone said...

Lofty goals, and worth all of them.
