22. Hey, we get to issue lists of demands, now? Cool. Here's mine.

1) Single payer health care.

2) End the drug war. Legalize, regulate & tax marijuana.

3) 50% reduction in the military budget.

4) Restore the Bill of Rights, esp. Amendments 1 & 4.

5) reinstate Glass-Steagal.

6) tax upper income earners and corporations at a higher rate.

7) liveable minimum wage

8) if we're really worried about our kids competing for 21st century jobs, STOP LETTING FLAT FUCKING EARTHERS near our kids' science curriculum. If you don't accept the science behind evolution or global warming, you shouldn't be in charge of educating anything more intelligent than a schnauzer.

9) massive peaceful technological and infrastructure investment, everything from smart roads and metropolitan light rail to NASA. Emphasis on transitioning to sustainable, renewable green energy.

10) Once and for all, get the government out of the personal morality business. This means if 2 consenting adults of the same gender want to get married, mazel tov. If consenting adults want to watch movies of other consenting adults fucking, and Mother Jones, Noam Chomsky, Pat Robertson or Concerned Women of America don't like it, too fucking bad. Same goes for birth control and abortion. Also, if terminally ill people want a dignified, painless exit of their own choosing, THAT'S THEIR OWN DAMN BUSINESS. Obviously, this applies to the drug war (#2) as well.

11) Corporations aren't people until they can be sent to prison for injuring or killing folks. Capice?
