State of Union Address – 2016
I was listening to President Obama’s pompous State of Union Address while sipping a delicious cup of coffee. Despite the coffee induced stimulus, my head had started spinning following the spins and twists performed by Obama. I was getting a bit dizzy and, sort of, discombobulated. In a state of mental fatigue, I might have dozed off.
I was watching and listening to the President’s State of Union Address again. But, this time, the Address was different – and so was The President.
As the President finished, I decided to write down his entire State of Union Address lest it escapes my memory. Here it is for my readers to enjoy, and to decide if it were real or just a dream.

Mr. Speaker, Mr. Vice President, Members of Congress, my fellow Americans:
We are sixteen years into this new century. Sixteen years of tyranny and terror on Americans and on people all over the world. Terror struck on our shores; that unfolded with a new round of terror on innocent people who were no threat to us or to anyone else. Our young generation was used as cannon fodders for the same tyrants who had attacked us. We ended up killing and destroying millions of innocent people, including women and children. We ended up sending many nations into the stone age by bombing and destroying everything they had built over the last one hundred years. We did it because we had been duped into believing that those poor people ‘hated our freedom’ – The Freedom that we didn’t have. The wars that we started ended up destroying our economy and destabilizing the entire world. Consequently, we saw a vicious recession spread across our nation and over the world. It has been, and still is, a hard time for many.
But tonight, we turn the page. It is the dawn of a New Era – the Era of Change – a change for the good, and Hope is finally here.
Tonight, after a back breaking and disastrous era for America, I pledge and declare to my fellow Americans and to the people of the world that it is the beginning of a New Era. America now stands for peace, prosperity, and harmonious relationship with people all over the world. Those who were responsible for the carnage, both here in America and abroad, will be brought to justice. They will be made to pay the price for their crimes against humanity. I assure you that there will be no tyrannical empire left once we are done with them. As I am speaking to you, our forces, those brave young men and women who until now were being used to serve them, have been deployed to round them all up and bring them here to stand trial. Their global power bases and security forces have already been pacified.
I hope, and I believe, this is going to be the last use of American might – But, this time, it is against the global tyranny.
As Americans, we respect human dignity, even when we’re threatened. But, the tyranny that had taken over our nation made us commit the crimes that made the humanity loath us. We tortured innocent people to death, and committed the atrocities on helpless people – even the thought of such acts makes me shiver.
I humbly ask the God to forgive us for our crimes against humanity as we were not ourselves. I ask my fellow Americans to join me in earnestly seeking the forgiveness from the God and from the people whom we did wrong. We will do our best to correct the wrong to the best of our capabilities.
It is time to rebuild and restart a new era my fellow Americans. We have a lot of work to do. But, now you will work for the betterment of your own life and for the future of your children – Not for the tyranny of the banking dynasties.
Our economy is in shambles. Discarding the phantom growth and jobs figures fabricated by our past tormentors, we are in a big mess. Our unemployment stands at more than 35% – and that is including the part-time, seasonal, and temporary employment. Whatever jobs that had been created were the low wage jobs with no benefits – and, those jobs with meager wages were replacing the stable and high paying jobs. With the glut of millions unemployed looking for the job, there was no bargaining power left for the workers.
It is all going to change.
The economy is the worst ever in the history. More of our kids are living in poverty than ever before. Number of homeless in the nation is well over 4 million. Our young are coming out of schools burdened with debt to the tune of $50,000 to $150,000. More of our people have fallen out of the health insurance coverage – thanks to the greed of the health care industry and insurance companies – both groups vassal of the same tyranny.
On the environment side, Fracking for Oil has contaminated and poisoned our once pristine underground water reservoirs and has damaged our ecosystem to such a degree that it will take decades for us to repair the damage. The greed of oil companies, owned by the same tyrants, has caused perils for our coming generations.
These tyrants, in their hate of us and the humanity, have poisoned our food chain through the use genetic modification of seeds and carcinogenic chemicals on our crops and farmland. Those poisons are inside us, and killing us and our children.
Pharmaceutical companies, a creation of the same tyranny, have destroyed our health and the immune system of our children by injecting us with infectious and poisonous substances in the name of ‘Vaccination’. A vicious act.
But, punished they will be – I assure you.
Now, on the global front:
Tonight, for the first time since the tyranny of 9/11, our combat mission in Afghanistan has been transformed into a rebuilding and reconstruction mission. Nearly 180,000 American troops who served the tyranny in Iraq and Afghanistan, killing the people and destroying their countries, are being redeployed on reconstruction mission. It will give our troops the opportunity to wash away their sins with their good deeds and build the bonds of lasting friendship. American troops will now be the messengers of peace. The new free governments of Iraq and Afghanistan have accepted our offer of help. We are humbled and grateful for having the opportunity to rectify and correct the wrong.
America, for all that we’ve endured; for all the grit and hard work required to come back; for all the tasks that lie ahead, know this:
The ugly shadow of tyranny has passed, and the State of the Union is now strong.
At this moment – with an economy in a mess, shrinking employment, bustling prison industry, and booming phantom production – we have fallen from a position of prosperity and strength to a state of fascism and deep into the recession.
But, now we are free to write our own future and to help other nations to be free of tyranny as well. It’s now up to us to choose who we want to be over the next sixteen years, and for decades to come.
Will we accept an economy where only a few of us do spectacularly well? Or will we commit ourselves to an economy that generates rising incomes and chances for everyone who makes the effort?
Will we approach the world fearful and reactive, dragged into costly conflicts that strain our military and set back our standing? Or will we lead wisely, using all elements of our power to defeat new tyrannies and threats and protect our planet?
Will we allow ourselves to be sorted into factions and turned against one another – or will we recapture the sense of common purpose that had in the past always propelled America forward?
In two weeks, I will send this New Congress a budget filled with ideas that are going to bring the new era of Hope to our suffering people. And in the months ahead, I’ll crisscross the country making a case for those ideas.
So tonight, I want to focus less on a checklist of proposals, and focus more on the values at stake in the choices before us.
I will scrap the BS, and will not insult you by presenting the customary carp of the old dark times. I will not give you the nonsensical stories of ‘Rebekah and Ben Erler of Minneapolis’. I am going to give it to you straight.
Of course, it begins with our economy.
As we all know, our economy has collapsed. We produce nothing – except, of course, the Dollars and the Weapons of Mass Destruction.
Real wages have fallen steadily for American workers since 1973, dropping more steeply since 2007. The real income of the average working-class family is now back to the level of 1933. That is while the wealth of the rich had grown leap and bound during the same period.
The free money handed over to the super rich class has made the prices of the essentials for living beyond the reach of our working people.
It is unacceptable.
Nearly half of all Americans and more than half of all US school children are poor or near poor. One fifth of American children do not get enough to eat, while the overall rate of food insecurity has jumped to more than 20%.
It is a sad scenario and cannot be tolerated.
Further, since the looters of the past had created so much worthless dollars to enrich themselves, no country in the world is willing to accept our currency. We have to work hard to regain the trust of the world again to enjoy the benefits of mutually profitable trade again.
But, we believe we can reverse the tide and re-industrialize our nation again. The era of outsourcing is certainty over. W have initiated programs to establish a strong manufacturing base. We have a very large pool of highly talented and skilled people that we are mobilizing, R & D is already in the full swing, and we are poised to emerge as the high-tech manufacturing giant in the world within a short span of time. Soon the world will see us as a useful and important partner in almost every field.
As we work hard, we will create millions of high paying jobs for people within a span of five years.
Now, to correct the wrong, and to bring the wrongdoers to Justice:
First of all, all the bank accounts in excess of $100,000 has been frozen. All the real property and assets, both personal and corporate, has been put in a state of freeze. These are temporary measures. Once the fairness in the acquisition and accumulation of wealth is established are the restrictions shall be removed.
Every one will be required to provide the proof of rightful ownership of assets – how they got them, and what did they produce to have such wealth. The same criteria of ownership will apply to the inherited wealth. The heirs to the wealth will have to verify the legality of the acquisition of wealth by their fathers. Wealth acquired by corrupt means, and without producing and contributing the equivalent value to the society, will be confiscated.
I am pleased the inform to my people who have suffered for generations under the vicious tyranny that, as I speak to you, all the tyrants and their minions in the US have been arrested – Their global counter parts who were involved in the destruction of our lives in the US, are being apprehended and brought back here to stand face the justice, or, in case of resistance, have been eliminated.
Federal Reserve Bank, an instrument of the tyranny, is dissolved. The function of the creation of money has been restored to the US Treasury.
All the labs and facilities that have been involved in the research and production of poisonous material and bio-weapons for the purpose of destroying the life on earth have been sealed. Production of nuclear weapons has been stopped. These actions are being taken in conjunction and in reciprocity with China, Russia, and all the other major nations.
All the licenses for the Media, form the TV stations and Radio stations to the print media, Have been canceled. All Media across the board has been temporarily put under the control of an appointed committee of expert in the field. Control will be passed to independent hands in due course.
All the media owners and their executives, along with the news-anchors involved the dissemination of disinformation to the public, have been arrested and shall be tried for treason.
All those who sacrificed the interest of the nation for the interest of a foreign entity shall be tried for Grand Treason.
Justice will be done.
Education is the pillar of a nation. Our educations had been taken over corrupted by the same tyranny. We will be systematically working to bring the integrity of education back to our schools. Our schools shall be put under the management and supervision of dedicate educators who care about the education.
Education, like the health, is the right of people in the nation. It will be national service – Free to all people of the United States of America.
We will bud our nation again – A stronger and better America for our coming generations. A beacon of hope to the world.
On the subject of defense:
My first duty as Commander-in-Chief is to defend the United States of America. In doing so, the question is not whether America leads in the world, but how. When we make rash decisions, reacting to the headlines instead of using our heads; when the first response to a challenge is to send in our military – then we risk getting drawn into unnecessary conflicts, and neglect the broader strategy we need for a safer, more prosperous world.
That’s what the tyrants wanted us to do.
There are not going to be any more threats of “all the options are on the table” to other defenseless countries. We are not going to threaten other countries with nuclear strike if they don’t obey our dictate. There are not going to be any unilateral actions any more. We are part of the global community and are going to act like a community.
As for our relationship with Russia and China, as of now, we are engaging them in discussions based on mutual respect and equality. The response from both of them is very encouraging. The are both very eager to end the confrontational era and start a mutually beneficial relationship. We have reached an agreement to start a serious plans and a solid schedule to eliminate all the nuclear weapons form the surface of earth – all the other nuclear nations have also joined in our effort to create a world free of nuclear bombs.
I believe in a smarter kind of American leadership. We lead best when we join the world as equals, not as a dictating super power; we engage the world with strong diplomacy; when we leverage our strengths with coalition building; when we don’t let our fears blind us to the opportunities that this new century presents. That’s exactly what we’re going to do from now on – and around the globe, it is going to make a difference.
First, we stand united with people around the world who’ve been targeted by Tyrants and their hired terrorists – from a school in Pakistan to the streets of Paris. We will continue to hunt down the tyranny and dismantle their networks, and we reserve the right to act unilaterally, as we are already doing it as I speak. We are going to take out the tyrants of the world who pose a direct threat to humanity.
It is my pleasure to announce that next week, leaders of Russia, China and all the other major countries are coming to DC to finalize the agreement to end the era of confrontations. From this point onward, all the disputes between nations shall be resolved by way of mutual discussions and global arbitration. The era of wars is over.
Soon, we all have a world free of Weapons of Mass Destruction. Free of wars, and free of tyranny. It will be the rule of people. People’s will shall prevail.
That’s a better politics. That’s how we start rebuilding trust. That’s how we move this country forward. That’s what the American people want. That’s what they deserve.
I stand in front of you today to assure you that a better tomorrow is here.
Because I want this chamber, this city, to reflect the truth – that for all our blind spots and shortcomings, we are a people with the strength and generosity of spirit to bridge divides, to unite in common effort, and help our neighbors, whether down the street or on the other side of the world.
I want our actions to tell every child, in every neighborhood: your life matters, and we are as committed to improving your life chances as we are for our own kids.
I want future generations to know that we are a people who see our differences as a great gift, that we are a people who value the dignity and worth of every citizen – man and woman, young and old, black and white, Latino and Asian, immigrant and Native American, gay and straight, Americans with mental illness or physical disability.
I want them to grow up in a country that shows the world what we still know to be true: that we are still more than a collection of red states and blue states; that we are the United States of America.
My fellow Americans, we too are a strong, tight-knit family. We, too, have made it through some hard times. Sixteen years into this new century, we have picked ourselves up, dusted ourselves off, and begun again the work of remaking America. We’ve laid a new foundation. A brighter future is ours to write. Let’s begin this new chapter – together – and let’s start the work right now.
Thank you, God bless you, and God bless the Humanity that we are part of.
