Black Caps don't deserve "celebration" for being second best Top 5 reader comments today: 'I'm an oval, which is not hot!' Sledging isn't why Black Caps lost Cricket World Cup The Cricket World Cup is over: long live the Cricket World Cup 'Sport should not give a child an excuse to avoid accountability' Recipe: Carrot cupcakes with maple cream cheese frosting Bad behaviour stains Australia's final triumph Top office dog: Louis the French Bulldog 'A different type of lonely' raising child who's 'a different type of perfect' Black Caps 'gave us something to believe in'

I would do the following, were I elected POTUS (president of the United States):

- End fossil fuel subsidies.
- End corn farming and large agribusiness subsidies.
- Subsidise and incentivise organic and permaculture farming and land use.
- Return land to the indigenous owners of it.
- End all nuclear programs.
- Cut all financial and military ties with Israel.
- End the wars.
- Create jobs across the country planting food forests and community gardens.
- Get people onto solar and wind energy.
- Scrap the Patriot and the National Defense Authorisation Acts.
- End the revolving door of corporate involvement in politics.
- Remove the definition of a corporation as a person in law.
- Clean up all the rivers.
- End mountain top removal style coal mining.
- Make healthcare free.
- Make all education free or affordable to the poorest people.
- Cut all ties, military, intelligence, and financial with dictators worldwide.
- Reach out to Hugo Chavez' government in Venezuela.
- Reach out to the Palestinians, provide funds for infrastructure and end the siege on Gaza.
- Put George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, and Henry Kissinger on trial for war crimes.

That does it for day one. Day two, naturally, I'd be shot to pieces.
