I Declare My Independence Day!

Did you know that everyday of the year is a special day?

You can find your special day here. Crazy National Day Just look up your birthday.

Mine is Start Your Own Country Day.

Which is pretty cool. For my birthday I can give myself my own country.

I'm going to have to find a place for it. One thing's for sure. It's not going to be here in Alberta where the snow goes up to the roofs and if you stand outside in one place too long you eventually become an ice sculpture.

My language would be English because that's what I know and I'm too lazy to create another.

The leaders would be all women. I know that sounds sexist, but I want to see if society would be better if women ran things. Men have had centuries to prove themselves and they've been screwing it up all along.

Making sure that everyone had a decent home and food to eat would be a priority. So would education, health and the arts.

It would be a capitalist/socialist society. Yes you can make money. Yes you can get ahead. No you don't get to stomp on the poor to do it. Yes, you have to help out your neighbor. Yes, we want you to have a mansion but can we get the homeless a place to live first?

Truck drivers would be banned on highways. Goods would be delivered by train and then truck drivers deliver goods from the train to the businesses. This would cut down on the "get out of my way, I'm a big truck" mentality.

Murderers and rapists would be sent to some island where they would have to fend for themselves. They want every man for himself, I'll give them every man for himself.

My country would be called Everything so that I can say that I'm
