Pamela Anderson: Potential Obama Brain Trust?

images-5.thumbnail.jpgPamela Anderson is a very deep thinker who has some things she’d like to get off her chest and share with our president-elect. And really, isn’t that what blogs are for?

Along with recommending that Obama read Naomi Wolfe’s Shock Factor and Robert Kennedy’s Crimes Against Nature, the former Mrs. Tommy Lee/Kid Rock/Rick Salomon has some generally agreed-upon progressive advice for our new president that includes bringing home the troops and closing Guantanamo. She also stresses vegetarianism and ending animal testing.

And importantly the ex-Playboy centerfold recognizes that prison economy is not good for society:

(There are too many people in jail that don’t need to be there-it IS a broken system- that enrages more people than it helps) – not saying that there aren’t people who need to be jailed while determining their fate- but Jail should be a holding cell for justice and not a lifelong waste of taxpayers money to run a spa for criminals-how does this improve society?

The Baywatch star, who has apparently never visited "a spa" like San Quentin, Angola or Pelican Bay–or even county jail–has a solution to the problem of prison over-crowding for one nasty class of criminals:

Government must Castrate every molester-or potential molester- error on the safe side- if any child pornography is found in anyone’s possession-or anyone creating such atrocities-or if any child Is brave enough to come forward (at any young age to bring attention to a potential molester- listen)…It needs to be PREVENTED not just punished.

In an oddly liberal counter to this Draconian measure, Pammy suggests a panacea for America’s ills:

I think we should Legalize Marijuana, tax and monitor -farm Hemp etc-this would make our borders less corrupt and then I think eventually this will be more secure option and save children in the long run – we should be able to farm Hemp in America- it’s just silly— it would create jobs- and be good for environment.

In conclusion,  Ms. Anderson points out a very real problem:

some Americans sure have a sense of entitlement that’s unhealthy, unwise and selfish at times… Thank God it’s a new day!
