  2. I wouldn’t make anyone start talking, instead we need to start LISTENING. Conversations and discussions are started with entrenched points of views on both sides, leading to frustration. When was the last time we as individuals we have been open to changing our opinions? I want to hear solutions, positive thoughts and a way forward for society in general. We are all in this together, and have so much to learn.

  3. Oh, I’d like it very much if Julius Malema would stop talking for 24 hours. No. Make that forever. He’s the leader of the ANC Youth League. And talks rubbish. All the time. Whatever he says is rubbish. But that could just be reporting. I doubt it. He promotes hate and violence. But he is the voice of the black (mainly) youth in South Africa. Who have a lot to complain about. Justifiably. There is so much unnecessary poverty. And there is a large number of super-wealthy (in comparison) people. The gap is far too wide. The greed is too great. And the poverty crippling. The youth (all of them) need a voice. Sadly his voice is loudest and his greed the biggest. He is using the desperation of others to enrich himself. And because he is (mainly) the only voice for the sickeningly poor, they do not seem to see his avarice and general vileness. I do agree with economic democracy. But he doesn’t. He wants to be mega-rich at the expense of the gullible and needy, angry youth.

    And I would like it very much if people like the Dalai Lama would speak more.

  4. My first choice to silence for 24 hours would undoubtedly be Barack Hussein Obama, a so-called president, so full of himself, a useless narcissistic maggot who believes that we Americans are just so ****ing blessed to have his arrogant worthless ass in the Oval Office. Too bad this would be limited to 24 hours since this demagogue, Anti-Semitic, Anti-American pretend president needs to be silenced permanently before he can screw up this nation any more than he already has. Every time I see his face on the television screen now, I cannot help but think “Oh boy, what does this buttwipe have to say now that he considers so important that he must interrupt regular programming AND WE JUST HAVE TO HEAR WHAT HE HAS TO SAY!!! You can call me “crazy” if you like, and I’m sure that some of you liberal buttwipes who STILL believe the sun rises and sets on Obama’s ass will, so I conclude with a little variation on a Muslim saying: Piss be upon you!! And, just one more thing: we could certainly use a REAL president like Thomas Jefferson again, And Obama is not it!!!

    1. Tell us how you really feel.

      Thomas Jefferson? Oh, good idea. That way we can have more sex scandals when he knocks up the 21st century version of Sally Hemmings.

      1. I myself would like to see Richard Nixon president again, because he is dead, which would make him our first zombie president. And nations would tremble before his mighty undead jowls.

  6. Myself… just last night I said Gawd! I’m actually annoying myself and I shut- up for five minutes. The short silence was blissful.

  7. I might make myself shut up for 24 hours; I tend to to talk too much and say way more than I should. I’m sure that gets annoying.

    I have an idea of who I’d get to talk, but I’m going to keep that quiet.

  8. It’s kind of a close toss up between Fred Phelps and Pat Robertson. As someone who self identifies as Christian, these men embarrass me and the Church every. single. time. one of them opens their mouth.

  9. It would be great if the politician can shut their mouth up for 24 hours so we as a nation can be in peace. If it is possible, I would like to have Oprah Winfrey to talk for hours to share her success and life experiences.

  10. My co-worker. I simply cannot stand the sound of her voice, nor the constant stream of drivel that flows from her “all knowing” lips. Amen.

  11. Who would I want to stop talking? Well it’s easy for me this morning. It would be my sick, sweaty, sleeping soundly son. It looks like he’s got laryngitis poor thing! So I am actively trying to stop him talking – word count so far today 3 “No” “Okay” and “Warmer” in that order. Let’s keep it that way. I need a slate…

  12. I would silence my immediate supervisor because she talks so incredibly slow. I believe a tapped molasses tree goes faster. I would also silence our boss because he drones on and on and on about nothing half the time. Three hour staff meetings — good grief! So, needless to say about an hour into it I’ve completely zoned out.
