We'd have a four-day work week. It's hard to get two full days of fishing into a two-day weekend.
I'd place price controls on sporting goods, subsidize the industry, and make all sporting goods purchases tax deductible.
Hunting and fishing licenses would cost a dollar, but you'd have to pass a rigorous test before you could buy one.
I'd introduce my dog to everyone I considered appointing to be a judge. He's a better judge of character than I am.
I'd make all insurance companies mutual companies, owned by their policy-holders, and I'd turn all banks into credit unions.
I'd give the people the right to bill the phone companies if they screwed up their monthly bill.
I'd outlaw those annoying menu options on the answering machines at every business you really want to talk to and provide tax breaks to companies who hired real people to answer their phones.
and finally, I'd have DARPA invent affordable breathable waders that LAST! ~ Ken
