I am sooooooo bored right now because of the stupid rain here in Tokyo.

So I thought up something. For fun. If I run for office don't hold this against me 

If I were dictator and I were to make new rules for my country:

1) ban rap music, hip hop, MTV, the Lardashians, and confiscate all of hollywood's funding.

2) all movies must be made by Clint Eastwood, or directors trained by him.

3) listening to an hour of Finntroll every day is mandatory

4) every able bodied male will learn how to play hockey

5) learning Japanese will be mandatory

6) learning a musical instrument will be mandatory

7) no one is allowed to say "YOLO." If they do, they'll be thrown into the snake pit.

8) Anyone who says that long hair looks stupid will be forced to grow long hair themselves.

9) Basketball players will be retrained as baseball or hockey players, and basketball will be abolished.

10) The Westboro Baptist Church, any radical religious people, and Al-Qaeda will be drafted into forced labor slavery, doing the lowest, menial, disgusting jobs imaginable.

:D What about you guys?

1. Nobody is allowed to work before 11 AM.

2. Every Saturday evening, there will be a hour-long firework in every town and village.

3. Whoever shows his religious beliefs in public will be stoned.

4. Everybody who is reasonably healthy (and can prove it by a doctor's certificate) and above the age of 18 is allowed to consume any drugs.

5. Travel by car or motorbike will be illegal. The government will assure that buses, railways and airplanes are on time, comfortable and affordable.

6a. The the government and the justices will be elected by the parliament. The parliament will be elected by drawing lots.
6b. Well, I'll have the final say. The parliament and the other branches of the state only exist to make my duty as humanely as possible (e.g. about six or seven hours a week). Big grin

1. Ban of trashy entertainment. I would ban all forms of entertainment that I think are rubbish. Most television programs currently shown in Finnnish television would be banned, especially the big majority of those that feature badly behaving people, useless celebrities, bad humor. Also most American TV programs would be banned, other than something useful like documentaries. Also a lot of modern trashy music would be banned, every radio station would be required to play daily amount of Cuban and Soviet music.

2. People must stay healthy and away from bad American origin eating habits. Thus I would ban any restaurant groups that sell hamburgers from the whole country. Pizzerias and such would stay though. It would be illegal to take any product with a Mcdonalds logo to the country.

3. I would ban coca cola, pepsi etc and replace them with healthy ice tea products.

4. No state funded foreign aid other than to help with some unexpected catastrophes like earthquakes and so.

5. No more refugees / uneducated immigrants from Central Asian, Middle Eastern or African country, too much trouble and no benefits.

6. More progressive taxation, higher taxes to rich part of the population.

7. Improved state funded healthcare and education systems, private healthcare companies would not be allowed to operate anymore. Higher salaries to doctors, nurses etc.

8. More restrictions to foreign companies working in Finland. Foreign mining companies would be banned entirely, our natural resources belong to us.

9. Legalization of marijuana and brothels, though both heavily regulated.

10. Longer and harsher sentences from bad crimes like rape, murder, manslaughter etc. Death sentences for the very worst criminals like mass murderers.

11. More protected nature reserve areas, natural forests.

12. Strict pollution standards to industry. More wind power.

13. I would also use tax payers money to buy and keep operating a private Boeing 747SP to travel around the world whenever I feel like it, also a private B757 for shorter flights, both equipped with a couple of good looking female flight attendants willing to make my flights as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

I'd say that airshows need to be real airshows. Over-capable, single seat Navy GA flying in formation is about as done as it can be. Let's see a DC-10 fly under the Golden Gate... with the OverSpeed warning on!

I'd also say that weaponizing children for the purposes jacking up marital settlements would be punishable by up to 20 years (but not less than 19.5) in federal prison. To be, of course, applied retroactively, and without the possiblility of clemency.

Any DA securing more 200 convictions in the same year will receive the Dictatorial Hero Award, and become eligible for an Official Friend of the Dictator status after three consecutive such years, inclusive of course, of the same tax exempt status enjoyed so with.

I'd also say that making a false accusation of any crime would punishable, again without the possibility of clemency or commutation, with same maximum sentence proscribed for the crime falsely accused thereof. For reference, any not-guilty verdict shall be considered and cross prosecuted as a false accusation.

Any slander, or attempt to disrupt this notional dictatorship would not by itself be considered a crime. But, it would be grounds for siezure of assets and compulsory indentured servitude to be determined by Dictatorial Fiat. Hey, this is aint no democracy, right? So slander me all you want ladies, especially if you're hot!

Lots of GOOD ideas so far.

I'd ban ugly cars.

When I was based in Germany in the late sixties I had to get permission from my company commander to purchase a private vehicle. While signing the authorization I was warned by him that the polizei could and would fine you for driving an "ugly car". Of course it was relative more to safety; rusted floppy fenders, cracked or stained glass, bad tires and such, but he also added that extravagant paint jobs (read: hippy-style muraled micro bus type graphics) where frowned upon.

Anyway, remember the USA advertisements back when..."Keep America Beautiful. Buy A Jaguar." ?

So, I'd ban ugly cars. regards...jack

Why not? Stalin won hands down every time, getting 110% of the votes cast. It provides legitimacy for the dictatorship.  

Of course there is a difference between electing a parliament and that parliament actually having any powers to legislate. That is the norm in several countries where parliaments are largely advisory councils.

So what would I do?

In the interests of public health and safety, minimum seat pitch in aircraft will be 34" and the minimum seat width will be 20". Any airline executives who protest will be condemned to flying on existing Vueling aircraft non-stop for thirty three years (except for refuelling stops.) If it's acceptable for the passengers it is acceptable for the executives.

Airline food will be appealing and digestible and not something that the dog threw up. Penalty: executives will be provided with pure, pedigree chum for breakfast, lunch and dinner before being taken for "walkies."

The price shown must reflect the total paid to fly. While taxes must be clearly identified, ancillary fees and charges may not be shown as a tax. "Fuel surcharge" is not a tax. It is an extra revenue grab. Failure to identify it as such will result in forfeiture and a fine of an equal amount.

A free market economy means that not only is the movement of capital free but so too is the movement of labour. Except for the exclusion of known criminals, immigration controls are repealed. Migrants will be encouraged to become active citizens, fully participating in all areas of public life.

Plattdeutsch and OshiNdonga will be the official languages to be learned all residents, citizen and non-citizen alike.

Establish an obesity tax -- "freedom" stops when other people end up paying your medical bills because you couldn't stop refilling the Big Gulp.

Abolish income tax and replace it with a consumption tax.

Legalize all "recreational" drugs. The ones we allow are far deadlier than the ones we don't allow. If you die because of something you consumed then it's your problem and not mine.

Give tax breaks to people who don't allow those damn video games in their homes, or if that's not possible, raise the taxes on video games obnoxiously.

Eliminate tax-exempt religious organizations.

Cap the salaries that athletes and actors/singers/musicians/entertainers can make. When Madonna makes more money in one night for flashing her ass and lipsynching than a policeman or a firefighter does in an entire year I have a problem.

Put any and all reproductive-age men and women who are receiving public assistance on mandatory birth control. If you can't pay for it nobody else should have to. If you miss your shot then you miss your cheque.

Mandatory second language instruction during primary school.

Castration/sterilisation for people with a low IQ

This is potentially dangerous. It could backfire. People with a low IQ might be more supportive, or at least accepting, of the regime. The intelligentsia can never be trusted. They ask too many questions and want "freedoms", whatever they are. No, the Romans had the right idea for the plebs with low IQs: bread and circuses. Or beer and football. No, the intelligentsia might need re-education with attendance at reruns of "The Bold and the Beautiful" being obligatory.

Why not just provide them with a useful job? There are plenty of socially-useful things that need doing. Picking up dog poo, removing anti-government graffiti, stuffing ballot boxes to make sure you attain that 110% of the vote. Compulsory "sterilisation", even if temporary, will not prevent a sponge being a sponge. Put them to work. The alternative is a suggestion of failure and no decent dictator would ever admit failure.

Timely topic, given what's been happening in these parts tonight....

All businesses, with the exception of Licenced Premises and Essential industries, must close at 3PM every Friday for happy hour. Employers by Law must pay for the first round of drinks, and provide paid transportation for their employees to travel home afterwards. Employers operating Licenced Premises & those in essential industries must make alternate arrangements for their staff.

No corporate CEO or company director will be permitted to be paid no more than 20 times what their lowest paid full time staff member is paid. For most CEO's here, this will mean that most of them will be paid no more than around $800K to $1 million. This will be enforced by a government body, any board members or CEO's who are found to be in contravention will be immediately dismissed from their positions & banned from any similar positions for life. Any bonuses are to be held in trust until 5 years have passed since leaving the employment of the company, and 10 years in the case of stock options.

Ban locally owned companies from off-shoring work.

Repeal of all alcohol & fuel excices.

Ban the purchase of residential property by non-residents. Also abolish negative gearing on residential property.

Provide taxation incentives to employers to move their operations or to set up new facilities in areas outside of the State Capitals.

This is what I would do:

Nationalize oil companies.
Double the road tax for any truck.
Triple the road tax for any foreign truck only crossing Germany.
Abolish the car tax for strictly private cars, raise it for company cars.
Companies must pay the taxes in the country they make their money, not where its convenient.
Lower income taxes for anyone earning less than 100.000 a year, raise it for anyone making more than 250.000.
25% inheritance tax on great fortunes above 10 million, 50% on any private inheritance bigger than 100 million. Companies, one private home and palace and their upkeep (due to its cultural importance) excluded.
5% yearly tax on great fortunes to prevent the socially unhealthy accumulation trend. 1 million fortune is tax-free.
Personal fortunes are being capped at 500 million.
My tax laws in short: make it more easy to make your first million, and more difficult to make your 100th!

Violent criminals, rapists etc. must work for their victims and pay for their victims therapy if needed.
Repeat child rapists - castration, hardest labour until death, 75% of their fortune transferred to a welfare fund caring for molested children. No access to any sexual material, books, videos and magazines.
Repeat rapists are being castrated.
Drug dealers must pay for the welfare and wellbeing of the people who´s life they destroy.
Foreign drug dealers are being deported the day they are being caught with no chance of court appeal.
Any policeman beating or arresting someone he knows is not guilty will lose his pension.
Every drug including cigarettes is being forbidden. Any hard liquor can only be purchased on recipe limited to 20 bottles a year.
Any radical muslim, member of the salafists etc. will be imprisoned or deported.
Every member of a radical right wing party or Neonazi will be imprisoned.
Politicians and high public officials are being made personally responsible for their mistakes.
Bank managers are being made liable with their personal fortune for grave mistakes affecting their clients and the public.
No weapons for ordinary civilians, hunting weapons to be stored in special public places, not in private homes.
High taxes on any unhealthy food, a bottle of Coke or a bag of marshmallows or chips costs 5 Euros.
Everyone is liable for part of the hospital bill for any disease caused by personal misbehavior (drug abuse, obesity, picking a fight and injured in it).

Inconsistent? No, foreign trucks not doing business in the country they cross only damage roads and pollute the air. Fair to let them pay more than the rest. Germany is the biggest transit country in Europe.
And as for drug dealers, Germans (locals) cant be deported, only foreigners. So that has nothing to do with xenophobia.

If You Were Dictator, What Rules Would You Enact?

First and foremost I will declare that all flyable Concordes must be returned to flight by executive order.

All capable parties be it Airbus or others will have to work on returning one or several Concordes to the skies - again by executive order.

Existing Concorde simulators will be restored or replicated/rebuilt as new if necessary.. All needed spare parts will be built by multiples. Pilots and captains will be retrained to fly the aircraft with tutoring/mentoring from former Concorde captains and pilots who will be put in charge of this task.

After being returned to flight all the flyable Concordes will stay as they are in their same liveries and registrations.

The flying Concordes will be used exclusively for prestigious displays at air shows around the world and official events worldwide. Inviting countries will have to pay all expanses for the visiting Concordes.

No private entity or politician will be able to use the flying Concordes for their own needs be it official travel.
This will includes the dictator whose only task will be to make sure (in person) that everything will be done so the aircraft can safely return to the skies.

The flying Concordes will be made Official National Icons and be treated like treasures.

Their full maintenance cost will be paid ty the State at whatever cost. Bookkeeping will be scrutinized to make sure that all the allotted public funds will go to the aircraft to the one cent. Any cheating/stealing of funds will be punished of lifetime emprisonment.

Grand Inaugural national ceremonies and events will be planned in most major airports in the country to which everyone and all will be able to participate by admiring and cheering the restored Concordes back in the skies.

I will assure the well-being of the flying Concordes in every possible way until my last day in this world. I will designate a successor who will further the life of all existing flying Concordes.
