Dear President Obama,

Heck of a job, huh?

Hundreds, thousands, millions of voices resound with advice, and cry out for resolutions to problems that we can't collectively comprehend.

Where to begin? (hint, it's clear you're still trying to figure this out).

It's simple. Junk in, junk out.

Sincere voices aside, our nation is one drowning in junk. Not just material junk, but economical, theoretical, and epistemological junk.

Junk sells. But if one were to eat junk their entire life, one would not be healthy. One would probably die prematurely, a consequence of mental and physiological deterioration, and one would become junk food for maggots. Not a pretty picture.

So, in these times of military quagmire, economic recession, government deficit spending, declining social healthcare, and the rising cost of life, it is imperative that you learn how to separate the wheat from the chaff, the crap from the compost, and the jewels from the junk.

My guess is that the solutions you seek will come from places you have yet to find. Go look for them, and be prepared to leave the box, for the box is where everyone else keeps their junk.

I'd tell you more, but I don't have your job.

Good luck, and may the force be with you.
