Opinion page editor Rick Holmes and other writers blog about national politics and issues. Holmes & Co. is a Blog for Independent Minds, a place for a free-flowing discussion of policy, news and opinion. This blog is the online cousin of the Opinion section of the MetroWest Daily News in Framingham, Mass. As such, our focus starts there and spreads to include Massachusetts, the nation and the world. Since successful blogs create communities of readers and writers, we hope the \x34& Co.\x34 will also come to include you.

I’ve been thinking about Rick’s response to the notion that our first black president has gleefully presided over the lynching of a criminal suspect. What is Rick’s response? 99% like this! As if Facebook overrides the Constitution. And then I point out that it was unlikely that the federal government could have convicted bin Laden in a fair trial, and Rick responds that this is ok, because bin Laden was a dirt bag.

So, here’s an idea as to how Obama can balance the budget, wipe out the deficit, pay for his social welfare program, conduct the war on terror and have fun all at the same time.

Let’s have a reality show, called Who Wants to be an Executioner? Everyone will be able to nominate their favorite criminal dirtbag, and pay a $100 filing fee. The White House will personally select the top 20.  Over the course of the season, the top 20 will go through a series of dirt bag challenges, with the public being able to vote via Facebook who will be knocked off. At the end of the show, the remaining dirt bag will be executed by a drone strike. One lucky citizen will get to fire the missile! Think of the fee collection! Think of the ad revenues! Think of all the good things that everyone will feel as Obama, as host, gets a chance to personally torture dirt bags and deny them their rights! 99% like this.

Only drawback for Obama? The first nominee for killer dirt bag beyond the reach of the law, for whom a ton of people would probably gladly pay the fee? Barry himself. But at least he’d go out knowing Obamatax was funded.
