I Fully endorse George Lang for the Senate District 4 seat in Ohio

I was quite excited to learn that George Lang was running for the Senate seat that Bill Coley had been occupying in Ohio for several years. The seat itself was terming out and George let me know that on Monday at noon he was going to announce his run for it, and it brought a lot of joy to me. I first learned of his candidacy while on vacation with my family in Charleston, South Carolina touring sites that many were reviewing as the best in the world. I kept hearing while on my weeklong stay in Charleston that this neighborhood, this beach, this restaurant, this shipping lane, this and that were the best anywhere. I had to admit that everything was very nice. Property values were certainly great, and shipping vessels seemed to come into the harbor every 30 minutes loaded to their max. Even at 3 in the morning from our Mt Pleasant home I could hear the cranes working and I found all that economic activity very exciting. Yet the town of Mt Pleasant across the harbor from downtown Charleston was quiet and very chic at that time of night, just as it was all other hours of the day. The people there were prosperous and happy, no crime was in sight. Prosperity tends to do that to a community. So I was a little sad to leave and come home, but then for comparison as my family hit Cincinnati starting at Florence then going up I-71 to avoid the traffic on I-75 it was a startling comparison which culminated into our last moments of the journey travelling down Butler County Regional Highway where for as far as the eye could see, there was prosperity, especially in West Chester. After coming from an extremely wealthy area full of vibrant economic activity, it was obvious that my hometown of Butler County, Ohio was even greater and that is something the rest of the nation hasn’t been talking about. And for the last twenty years, it was my friend George Lang who has had a tremendous hand in that success, which was why I was elated that he was running for that Ohio Senate seat.

It goes without saying then that I endorse George Lang for the Senate District 4 seat in Ohio, fully. I could tell stories all day about why he’s qualified, but the best part of his resume is in this opening paragraph. I had spent a week in one of America’s most prosperous communities and coming directly home to West Chester, where I work, and Liberty Township where I live it becomes obvious that we have it better than most anywhere else in the country and that is due to the very pro-business environment that Lang has championed for many years starting as a trustee in West Chester. Even when Lang was outvoted 2 to 1 on most issues in West Chester by the much more liberal trustees who were there at the time, Lee Wong being one of them, George managed to be a change agent for the betterment of business and the results are obvious today, and the spill over has poured over into neighboring Liberty Township and other regions connected directly to West Chester very positively.

I remember well when George benefited from Mark Welch getting elected into that second trustee seat knocking out a longtime incumbent so that a second vote could be obtained, and real growth could occur for business. For a few years George Lang and Mark Welch opened West Chester to a very positive pro-business culture that is now carrying over into our current conditions which rival any of the best in the entire country and now George wants to bring that culture to all of Ohio. When George was elected into the 52nd House of Representative seat, this was his ultimate goal which he has been working toward. However, as a Senator, he will have much greater leverage to make that pro-business platform more prominent and to take it above the noise of all the other political matters that permeate the state.

George really doesn’t have any competition for this spot, his rivals during the upcoming primary are Candice Keller out of Middletown, who I think is a wonderful person. But when it comes to experience, George has many of the same positions as her on conservative ideas, but his understanding of business and his pro-business platform just puts him on a higher level. Then as I’ve said about Lee Wong, he’s the kind of guy who is a liberal in a conservative area. He has no choice but to run as a Republican. His policy decisions are very much that of a Democrat. If he were running for office in Hamilton County or even Dayton, he’d be a Democrat without question. It was Lee who stood in the way of many of the growth ideas that George wanted to implement in West Chester. I seem to remember Wong’s campaign slogan was that you “Couldn’t go wrong with Wong.” Well, yes you can, in a big way. He’s a nice guy but he’s not on the level of Lang, in any category. In many ways Lee stood in the way of growth, it was George and Mark who broke through his resistance to give West Chester the great prosperity that it sees today.

So, if there is a theme to all this, management does matter and who we elect into these positions has a major impact on all our lives. Obviously in Charleston South Carolina they have a lot of good things going on. Essentially there they have a deep and rich history to draw from which has put politics on the efforts of preserving that history, and not getting in the way of businesses wanting to capitalize off that deep history. In West Chester, Ohio the situation was harder, while Butler County does have a great history going back to before the Revolution, just as Charleston does, we had to be good the old-fashioned way, in the middle of the country with great highway access. We needed our politicians to make the most of those advantages with low cost compliance and protections on upfront investment for businesses. In West Chester, George Lang alone for a long time, then later with a good support staff from a very good Republican Party presence, have created an economic boom that plugs straight into the Trump administration. There is a reason that President Trump enjoys coming to the southern Ohio area so much, and George Lang is more a part of that success than just about anybody. Not in what he has done, but in what he hasn’t.

Most politicians measure their success by what bills they sponsor and ultimately by how much they grow government. In George’s case, it’s the opposite, he measures his success by how much he can get government out of the way of business, allowing them to spend their time and energy on being profitable, which then allows a high quality of living for everyone. For people who have lived in the Butler County area for many years, its easy to take for granted just how good it is. But if you have traveled, the benefits are obvious in comparison. I am very excited to see George Lang do for Ohio as a Senator what he has done for West Chester. I personally think Ohio has an opportunity to become one of the great economic powerhouses of the world and it will take people like George to make it happen. So he has my endorsement and then some. I simply can’t wait to get him in that seat so he can start the work, for which we will all benefit.

The Merits of Dueling

The Merits of Dueling:

As I have said, I have been working on a new book called the Gunfighter’s Guide to Business and I’m about halfway through it.  For my readers of a long time here who have been sending me a lot of emails missing the daily articles, they will return.  But I offer this little sample of this “gunfighter” project to give a taste of what is to come.

The concept of getting “satisfaction” from a personal insult went a long way to establishing honor and proper conduct among business transactions, in the time before modern rules as we know them today. As we have seen often where various religions and their value are not unified, and therefore cannot be expected to hold up in a court of law, there needs to be a mechanism that brings about honor and to hold it into the context of moral conduct where villainy will quickly grow like a weed in a garden of dreams. Dueling in the classic sense, especially in the New World during the time of the American Revolution was an answer to this problem. And if there is an argument against the American Constitution for changes, it was in the original rules of the nation that mechanisms of honor were already established before the courts were needed.

In doing business in the orient, particularly in Japan where honor is still a respected trait, business transactions are accelerated because the interactions mean something with one another. This is obvious at the airports around Tokyo among men and women as respect is a universal language that makes interactions between people start on common ground. In the West we have allowed our own culture of respect to drift away into the more centralized regulation of the state which outlawed the practice of dueling essentially so that lawyers could profit off the instillation of justice. The cost was that individual satisfaction for an insult did not get the respect it deserved while the emphasis was on protecting society from itself by settling matters in a court of law. This has led our culture to adapt into a more passive aggressive society where trust isn’t always easy to find in other people. It could be argued that we were all better off when we tried to openly kill each other to protect a slight against our individual names.

Dueling was so common at the start of America that the governor of South Carolina wrote a book on it to make sure everyone did it right called The Code of Honor: Or Rules for the Government of Principals and Second in the Art of Dueling in 1834 by John Lyde Wilson. Dueling in the time of the Revolutionary War was quite common. While it was slowly going out of style at the start of the invention of a republic form of federal government once George Washington took office, in the South, particularly in Charleston, South Carolina where so many important battles occurred in defining freedom during the start of the new nation, dueling was so common that the governor felt compelled to create some legal means of settling disputes, which sounds barbaric compared to our modern legal system, but in hindsight seemed to generate more responsible people on an individual level. This certainly helped in business commerce, because if a business deal went bad, the parties may find themselves in the streets fighting to the death to obtain their satisfaction.

The important aspect of satisfaction is that the emphasis was on the individual reputations of the participants. It wasn’t some third party “state” that decided justice, it was the people at the heart of the conflict, and in many ways, society was more honorable. People had to treat each other individually better as a result. The more the states intruded on management of the affairs of people the more passive aggressive disputes have become leaving business conduct to suffer greatly. After the Civil War it was particularly immigrants from the South who moved West in search of gold and other opportunities, and they took with them the concept of dueling that had been very much a part of early American life. Dueling with fast draw had with it a way of bringing honor where there wasn’t yet law and it forced people to treat each other better and more honorably which is why there is still reverence for it.

At the state level we can all see today that the concept of taking honor and responsibility for good conduct away from individuals has been a mistake. While dueling was a violent concept the amount of people who died from it were arguably much less frequent than the kind of violence we see in modern times. That is why thinking in the way of the gunfighter is better than in the modern context of leaving disputes to be settled by those not directly responsible for the conduct, such as lawyers and the state as a legal entity. These days instead of getting satisfaction for an honor tainted we say “see you in court” instead of settling the matter right then and there. Then of course those who can pay for the best lawyer become the winners in most cases and the state enjoys the revenue and job opportunities that come from settling disputes. But what is lost is the individual responsibility for the actions taken and the merit of an honorable exchange. Taking the example of the famous duel between General Gladsten and General Howe in 1778, both Generals in the Revolution and were in a dispute over troop possession. They took to the streets of Charleston, South Carolina where many such duels were taking place at the time and when the time came stared each other down waiting for the other to make a move. After taunting each other for a good bit of time finally General Howe fired his pistol and clipped the ear of Gladsten. Gladsten in response, who was thought to be the John Adams of the south and inventor of the famous “Don’t Tread on Me” flag deliberately fired his shot into the ground inviting Howe to try again. Eventually the two men shook hands and that settled their dispute with only a minor injury occurring to Gladsten’s ear. Otherwise, the business between two major Revolutionary War figures was settled respectfully, something that certainly wouldn’t have occurred if the two had fought it out in court with lawyers acting as their pistols and fancy words spoken in legal jargon as bullets.

The point of the matter is not that dueling is a desired trait, or even that we should bring it back in the form that it was. Killing another person isn’t a desirable outcome for any dispute, but the finality of it tended to put in the participant’s minds the seriousness of an issue and this mindset certainly set the West and its expansion ablaze with activity that couldn’t have been regulated by any legal system at the rate that human ambition was expanding at the time. Honor was preserved by the potential for dueling and this threat allowed for proper respect when a nation needed it most. We could learn a lot from this period today where honor among business transactions is desperately lacking, particularly within the American borders. Other countries have their honor driven rituals and it is noticeable during business transactions. In the United States however, we have allowed our laws to be governed by lawyers and judges who take away the responsibility for personal conduct and place it in the hands of the state, and many of our businesses have followed. The impact has been a loss in honor among business interactions that has not been desirable. Yet honor could be restored if only we stepped back into hindsight and dusted off the values that did emerge from dueling and upgraded that sentiment for our modern needs which starts in thinking like a gunfighter.

House Bill 6 in Ohio is a Good Thing–if you want free markets, then provide them

There has been a lot of criticism about the passage of House Bill 6 which is the “Ohio Clean Air Program” because both sides of the political spectrum are missing the point. The bill essentially is a government bail out of the Akron-based First Energy Solutions nuclear power plants. The hippie liberal communist environmentalists don’t like that the bill strips away cash credits for “renewable energy,” such as wind power and solar while raising $200 million per year to cover the costs of the plants as a government heavy highly regulated industry that continues to lose money to the point where they won’t survive past the year 2021.

On the other hand there are the free market capitalists who don’t like that the utility company has donated over $1 million to Republicans to keep fossil fuel energy production alive, where the Obama era administrators sought to kill the industry in 2008 with more government mandates. Given the climate of government intrusion to begin with, and the need for good, reliable energy in Ohio, H.B, 6 further allows for local townships to vote by referendum any wind or solar powered take over of land and other assets to launch their “renewable energy” proposals, meaning the government can’t just decide to put up wind power plants by force. People in local areas would have the right to vote on them, which has the radicals infuriated. But equally infuriated are the capitalist who think that the whole deal is just another example of crony politics, where politicians will do anything for the donor base.

Here’s the deal, and I have been talking about this for a very long time, our utilities companies are monopolies that are directly attached to government management. And they shouldn’t be. If they weren’t “public” utilities then the management burden wouldn’t fall on government to have to solve, and Republicans in Columbus wouldn’t be tasks to bail them out or otherwise watch them fail down the tubes. And if the companies fail, what’s that do to our ability to produce nuclear power? Letting them fail at this point simply isn’t an option. And putting regulatory barriers on that industry just to facilitate hippie energy isn’t going to solve the problem either. What is truly needed in the long term are true free market solutions, which I suggested in Thorium, where every single home could generate their own power off a government regulated grid, kind of like how each home has their own air conditioning units. The technology is there, but government needs to get out of standing in the way of it, and when it does problems like what First Energy Solutions is going through would then become a private problem instead of a government problem. That is where the real issues reside.

The current state reality of energy creation is that it isn’t privatized, which by no coincidence is precisely why the health care industry is going through the same problem. If health care were privatized competition would bring down the expensive medications that are on the market. Government intrusion raises those cost and puts all the power in lobbyists. Until health care is privatized, costs will continue to be high and no easy solution for providing health care to people will be conducive to reality. Energy is hampered by the same restrictions. Power companies are government mandated monopolies, made that way through the incredibly high barriers of entry into the market. Regulator considerations destroy anything but the deepest pocket investors who then look to government to protect their investment. It’s much like the railroad situation at the turn of the 19th to 20th century. Someone had to build all those railroads, then someone had to manage the trains themselves and the people getting on them. Public utilities do great work, but they are expensive, and they are vulnerable to mass outages which hampers so many people because they must maintain and old grid of power supply that is in this present time old and obsolete.

But until we invent a better means of power generation, such as personal Thorium power plants the size of an air conditioning unit on a home for every home in the nation, government is stuck keeping the old dinosaur alive, which is what H.B. 6 in Ohio essentially is. The future of power generation isn’t the government mandates for solar and wind power plants passed down from the communist oriented Obama administration, its in private investment and personal maintenance, such as moving public transportation from the train to a car.

I love camping and always enjoy the sites of an RV park. Sure, while they are stationed in these weekend warrior hideaways, they are plugged in usually into the campground system of power and water maintenance. But in looking at all those great RVs within most of them are generators and tanks that allow them to function independently while traveling along the vast highways of our nation. It is from them that we should be learning how to push technology into each of our homes and businesses with more independent power generation and to get there we need to allow competition into the public utilities, which of course they don’t want, but that is the ultimate solution. We have allowed government to stand in the way of that energy independence so we really shouldn’t complain when they are called on to manage the trouble.

In that regard I completely support the Republican position on H.B. 6 and the Governor DeWine’s reasoning on the matter. They are dealing with dinosaur technology to supply the energy needs for a sustainable Ohio. The goal thankfully isn’t to pander to the flimsy hopes of the environmental terrorists, or the communist desires to destroy capitalism in the United States through heavy regulations tied to the backs of “Green Energy” but to deal with the two nuclear power plants that we do have, which have already cost a lot of money and do employ a lot of people. We need to use the energy we do have to bridge us into a 21st century solution. Likely the utility companies won’t like that solution but that is a bridge to cross when we get there. But we do need to get there.

Independent energy has to be the answer for the future, and free market competition to bring down the costs. Government needs to be out of all these economic transactions so that real free market solutions can come about, just like it did when the telephone utilities were deregulated. That is how the cell phone came about. Imagine what would happen if utilities were deregulated to allow for new methods of power generation to emerge. It amazes me how good some of the RV power generation innovations are these days. Imagine what it would look like if every home in the nation had their own source of power. Think of the lack of destructive impact to any economy that happens during every major storm where power grids get knocked out and hundreds of thousands of people are out of power for days, putting many people at risk. The option could be that every home treated their power supply like they do their air conditioners or heating services. A few downed trees wouldn’t kill the power for several neighborhoods. Instead one or two homes might be affected who could solve their problem with a simple service call from a competitive repair person. If we really want free market conditions, then let’s get government out of the utilities market and put them in the hands of the private sector.

The Great Trump Poker Game

In case you haven’t heard, there are even more text messages between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok that show directly that the Clinton campaign was involved in the FBI cover-up of DNC tampering into the 2016 election which Donald Trump won anyway. But now the skin is off the cat and its quite serious. It doesn’t seem that way to the mainstream media outlets because largely they refuse to cover it, but people like James Comey Clapper, Brennan and many, many others involved directly with the Obama White House are in deep trouble, and they deserve to be. It’s getting worse for them week by week and is why they came out against President Trump from day one, because they feared this day, where they no longer controlled the flow of information in government and could be tied to many crimes they knew they had committed to stay in office against the wishes of an official election. Meanwhile the state visit of the Trumps to Buckingham Palace in London was something even the most cynical person against Trump should have been very proud of. For those who have always supported Trump, it just made us prouder of his presidency.

What makes the Trump’s so good at these oversee visits with rulers, kings and queens of the world is that they’ve been there before. Long before Trump became president, he had become the very definition of the rich and famous, so looking comfortable among the most elite of the world is nothing new to him. And Melania is just such a great first lady, always looking and acting like the best that America has to offer. I can’t think of a single Democrat or Republican who could pull off one of these visits with the Queen of England so well, as if it was second nature to Trump. Which of course it is. I mean before the White House he and Melania actually lived in a tower of gold named after him. That lifestyle has certainly put him at ease in events like this one in London and I am personally glad. His approach certainly represents the way I think America should sell itself to others. Not just as an equal partner, but as a respected leader of the world and something others should feel a need to live up to.

But that is also why there was so much opposition against Trump to begin with. For many decades the plan was to diminish America’s role in the world and to cheapen our leadership in every way possible. So when we elected Trump to the Presidency the powers that had been engaged in all this diminished activity were inflamed to protect what they had been destroying. They certainly didn’t want Trump to repair our status around the world, which is precisely what has happened. Do you want to know how you can tell that Trump is unbeatable in 2020? Just look at how he has been playing the game. If his presidency were a poker game, which I’d say it is, he held great cards from the beginning, and now that the River has been revealed he has a 100% chance of winning the hand and the massive pot in the middle. The reason is that the Democrats went all in with what they thought were great cards, even cards they stuffed up their sleeve. But Trump had the aces and during the flop two more aces were revealed along with a King a Queen and a Jack. The King was the Mueller investigation, the Queen was the Strzok and Page FBI text messages, and the Jack was the phony Russian dossier paid for by the Never Trump establishment helped along by the Republican John McCain. And the other two Aces were the tax cuts and the great economic numbers that came from Trump’s policies. The two Aces Trump had all along were his great ability to lead people and generate excitement wherever he went, and his ability to be independent of the stuffy establishment with his own personal wealth.

Trump always had a great hand but once the Mueller Report was finished and the economy was continuing to truck along boldly, there wasn’t much anybody playing the game against Trump could muster. They had nothing and what’s unusual about politics played at this stage is that Trump knew how to play the game all along without all the advisors who whisper in the ears of leaders and usually guide everything in the direction they desire—who are completely controlled by establishment objectives. That made Trump a very unusual political figure, and one who couldn’t be beaten playing the game conventionally. And Democrats don’t have a candidate on the horizon who can match him.

That seemed to be the understanding of the English who finally did this state visit and put forth all the pomp that would be expected by such an occasion. When Trump was first elected, I was in London and saw how the local news had been covering him. I was at Big Ben and saw the massive protests around it trying to steer English politicians away from embracing the new American president. So, no doubt, the Queen waited to see how things went, so no immediate plans for a state visit were entertained. Now, two years later, as all the gas has gone out of the opposition forces, Trump is going to be around for a while, so the English might as well embrace it, so that had even a bit more sauce for this fine meal. Capitalism was making a comeback and any world leaders who didn’t want to be left behind understood that they needed to make friends with this American president, which is why the smartest of us elected him. We were tired of the bowing and apologizing that had been going on and decided to take matters into our own hands, and Trump was a great hire.

Personally, I was very proud of the Trumps at Buckingham Palace and the performance of the whole family on that very important trip. Even while the theater of pomp was in full bloom, the Russians called Trump up to indicate they were withdrawing their support from Venezuela. Mexico was reeling from the proposal of new tariffs, which will cripple their already deficient economy, and China is being bent over backwards from the tariffs that are now in place and is really bringing much needed pain to their economy. Its good to have an American president who understands the Chinese book on strategy, The Art of War. Finally! It’s not hard to beat them at their own game, we just need people in leadership positions who get it, and Trump does. There is just so much to be proud of even the biggest Never Trumpers that there are realizing that their efforts are futile. Trump has all the good cards in this game and he knows how to use them, and the best thing that everyone could do is to fold, before they lose everything. The Queen of England knows the story and she was very gracious in receiving the Trumps. They may not be her cup of tea, literally. But she is a smart woman and she knows how to play the game too, and for her and everyone, that means giving Trump credit for getting this far and still having Aces. Most of the chips on the table are on Trump’s side of it and as an American, that’s what I expect to always see.

Sex and Socialism

This is a complicated concept, but one that requires a dedicated analysis. I wouldn’t say that there was a master plan to use sex to sell socialism, but it was a biological conclusion that even the most dysfunctional socialist minded person could embrace without a formal plan. So it was an easy thing for liberals to cling to in order to achieve their ultimate objective. The plan was from the beginning of the socialist incursion into North America to use sex to break down our natural resistance to the concept and the trade off would be to satisfy our needs for sex by making it easier for us to achieve it. Then of course once we accepted the easy sex in our society, they we would of course accept other easy methods of doing things that were collective in nature resulting of course into a socialist society that would eventually embrace larger government expansion as a centralized authority.

Personally, it never made sense to me why public schools even back in my day were so obsessed with sex education. I remember in my health classes that the teachers were very open about using condoms and talking to partners about sex. Their platform was that crazy kids were going to have sex and since our parents weren’t teaching us about it that they had an obligation to do so themselves. Of course, in hindsight we will recognize what was going on, it was one of those “government knows best” moments where the government schools possessed forbidden knowledge that parents weren’t providing and that like the witch in Snow White, lured us all to a diseased life by encouraging us to eat from the poisoned apple.

I really learned a lot about this whole system when I was in my late twenties and my wife was a volunteer in the Mason school system. My oldest daughter was in the fourth grade and we were given a permission slip to sign. My daughter’s health class wanted to teach the very young students how to put on a condom using a dildo as the prop. Well of course we said absolutely not. My kids weren’t even close to being interested in that kind of thing and when they were, we would handle it as a family. I thought that would be the end of the story. What happened next absolutely shocked me.

The school system actually black listed us, they immediately rejected my wife’s volunteer activities at the school and the teachers who had been very friendly to her suddenly became almost ANTIFA like activists. My wife complained and that only made things worse and pretty soon there were kids and teachers following my kids around school applying a lot of peer pressure to put fear of compliance into them to either break from our position or to actually leave the school. Well that made me very angry and my wife was already there so we had to pull the kids out of school and home school them for a while because the experience of going to school was so terrible. And it was all over us not filling out a permission slip for teaching kids to put condoms on a dildo in the fourth grade.

Of course, things are much worse now, and our culture shows it clearly. Sex is nothing like it was when I was in school. The thrill of the chase is pretty much eradicated. Young boys expect young girls to give away sex without much effort and that has really destroyed the game of sex, and created an environment where those young people are now very accepting to socialism. As we all know the game of the sexes, of the basic birds and the bees has unsaid rules. Boys are attracted to visual sign stimuli. Even if you look like the ass of a baboon if you are a boy, you can still get a hot chick if you are a star athlete or end up in some other peer group that indicates that you will be successful one day and achieve financial wealth. Hot chicks learn very early that they have something boys want so they can use sex to gain access to material needs that are better than what other girls get. This system is what the political left was targeting with the idea of free sex. The idea was to get rid of value judgments, pretty girls, ugly girls, ambitious boys and pimple faced losers were all tossed into a big pot and offered marijuana inspired hippie sex with anyone and everyone so that nobody owned anybody and that like a public toilet or a water fountain, sex had the values removed from it so that the basics were enjoyed and that the values that made young boys want to work harder to have sex with better looking girls was removed, and that was a clear shot at capitalism.

I learned all this first hand of course, I have always known liberals. I was never one, but there was a time and continues to be where they want something from me, so I get these invites into their social gatherings. One such couple that I knew lived in downtown Cincinnati overlooking the hill off Clifton down into the city. They all had friends who lived along that ridge and for many reasons they were all very liberal. Most of them had university jobs or worked for the government down into the city, this couple was in entertainment and architecture. I had in fact hired the husband who was my architect for a while. The wife, who had a tendency to be nude all the time, even around other people was the director for a play at the Taft Theater for the very controversial Equus which featured not only complete nudity live in front of everyone, but actual sex on stage. When I saw it, I thought it was astonishingly disrespectful of the values of Cincinnati, Ohio. I saw the play as an attack on American values, even back then. A few years before that play my wife and I had both contemplated careers in modeling. She much more than me, but we both heard often the diatribes about how conservative Cincinnati was and that if we wanted to do modeling that we’d need to move to markets that supported more nudity because that was what it was going to take to be successful. My wife was 17 at the time, and I was 18. Clearly that wasn’t for us. So with that backstory and meeting the director of that play through my architect I learned more than I ever wanted to know about the nature of liberalism when I attended a few of their parties. They were very loose sexually. They loved their drugs and they despised human morality. They considered nature to be superior. Values were man made so they thought they should all be abandoned in favor of nature worship which is why that lady was always more nude than dressed.

These opinions of mine don’t come from any other source than first hand experience. Sex is the gateway drug for minds to begin to accept socialism. And that plan has been there for many years and if you want to know the truth about Russian interference in our elections and culture, the real problem was in the 1950s and 60s when the KGB actually injected moles into our society to undo it, and the hippie movement was the direct result, which we still see today. And they infiltrated our government schools with a desire to teach socialism and the means they intended to make it happen was to take away the value judgments of sex so that anybody could have sex with anybody else, and once that was complete, then we’d accept other reduced value judgments.

I think my wife and I were lucky to have had such rigorous standards of living. It certainly wasn’t easy. I would say that if Everest is considered one of the hardest mountains to climb in the world that holding some of the values we have as a family over the years was like climbing 30 Mount Everest stacked on top of each other nearly into space. And there were lots of times that we ran out of air or slipped on the ice. But we made it through the gauntlet and lived to tell about it with the same values toward things that we had initially. Also, it allowed me to see clearly now how we arrived where we are and to understand how to fix it. And before you can fix it, you have to know what the problem is. Valueless sex, which was brought to the United States by the KGB and injected like a drug into our public education system was meant to open the door to all this liberalism and to have it destroy American capitalism, because nobody in the world could compete with it. The damage is quite clear now in 2019. But we can’t accept that reality, and instead, need to go back to value judgments for the good of the human race, which of course nobody is interested in preserving from the political affiliation of liberalism.

Mama, Don’t Let Your Babies Grow up to be Weak Losers

This isn’t new news but maybe very timely as of now. An academic study of 171 men looking at their height, weight, overall physical strength and bicep circumference while also analyzing their views on redistribution of wealth found that weaker men are far more likely to favor socialist politics than stronger men. I mean that makes sense. Weak people obviously don’t feel inclined toward the competition of capitalism because they figure they won’t be able to compete, so they like the idea of a strong central government protecting them and giving them resources that they aren’t strong enough to get for themselves. And to be fair, women do favor many of those same socialist policies because they have learned to accept that men are stronger and they are less able to be physically forceful to get what they need in life. Weak men and feminist types who need to tip the scales in their favor support the idea of a big central government to help them have a shake in life toward what they consider fair. You can read the article for yourself below:

Physically Weak Males More Likely To Favor Socialist Policies, Study Finds

Most of the Republicans I know are what weak people would consider tough guys so the differences of political ideology truly does come down to physicality and experience with self-confidence. For instance, I do favor capitalism because I know I can do well in life with it, because I’m not afraid to compete with anybody, and I think that the path to true freedom is that everyone should feel the same way. That is why it is great to master some kind of weapon in life, so that a person can realize the freedom of their own defense and not fear for their life with every bolt of lighting that streaks across the sky. Not everyone can be the best at everything. So for the timid types, I think we can all sympathize with their anxiety. For those of us free of such concerns, the idea of a central government or socialism of any kind is reprehensible because we have the skills to do for ourselves and not everyone comes out of the box so prepared.

I would say I spend a significant amount of my life trying to help people learn to be more courageous I certainly don’t have an interest in being the strongest, fastest, and most dominant person on the block or in a city. Rather I’d like to teach people to be self-sustaining and to have the means of always defeating any bully any time and place and of all shapes and sizes so that they can enjoy that freedom for themselves because ultimately if they arrive into adulthood scared of everything, they will essentially vote for more big government to protect them which then hinders lifestyles like mine that want the most value. I would also consider strong people as the ones who advance society forward, because when people aren’t so worried about avoiding every little danger, they are inventing new things and building up industry which is needed for economic expansion. Some stringy haired hippie socialist wearing a tie dye shirt with a peace symbol on it isn’t typically going to be doing much of anything productive so those lifestyles should be avoided. But if such people do step forward, they should not limit the actions of the strong because it is the strong that protects other people truly, whether its their families, their friends and neighbors, or even their city. It is better to teach a weak person to be strong, but it is very bad to convince a strong person to give away their power to allow weak people to be equal.

And that is what is expected with socialism and why it never works in any place its ever been tried. There is a little socialism in every safety regulation, every compliance requirement and its been a very bad trend. What we need more of is not more regulations and reminders that government is the biggest, strongest entity that there is and everyone should be required to yield to it. We need more people to yearn to be stronger and for strong people to help teach them how to get there. We need the opposite of what we have been getting and the real trouble that has occurred is that too many people have just been emasculated from birth into essentially becoming pussies. And we all know what the purpose of pussies are. Not a good strategic position for anybody.

I think everyone has an opportunity to find some strength in themselves toward the freedom of self-reliance. The trouble is usually not the physical attribute of being strong, it’s in the laziness of the people who are weak that makes them that way. We used to have a society that encouraged in men to be strong and we passed judgments against them when they embraced their weaknesses and didn’t yearn to be stronger. For some people courage is hard, and some it comes easily. It really comes down to the kinds of things that people think about that makes them one way or another. However, in our culture now, the strong are chastised and the weak embraced so there is no incentive for the weak to modify their handicap and to learn to be courageous and strong if not physically, but mentally. The PC culture of our times has not helped advance mankind, it is hindering it into a regressive state.

The truth of the matter is that we should encourage everyone to be strong, even those who are small in stature or don’t have big biceps. There are many kinds of courage and we should always work to inspire those attributes in people no matter what sex they are, what size they are or what color. I’ve seen little people who aren’t afraid of anything. If you told them they could wrestle a Silver Back Gorilla to the ground, they would find a way to do it. And those kinds of people would likely be Republicans and fearless. But grown men who put on dresses and yearn to act like girls are just abortions to everything that being human should be. And any political system that embraces such a weakness is a detriment to the human race, which is quite a bit more serious than just political ideology. A yearning to make the world more fair, and more safe produces losers who would rather embrace socialism so that they could avoid any kind of fight for survival which is essential to human beings’ needing to continue advancing in life. Its ultimately that yearning that built skyscrapers and highways across North America and drove us to explore space through the early days of aviation. You don’t have to be strong and big to be bold and fearless. You simply have to learn what you have to work with and to maximize its potential. Being weak is a choice. Not a born trait. It can be overcome rather easily, and it is essential that we all do. The sure way to end the line of human beings is to allow them to build up their governments into an almighty, ever cautious parent who insists on safety over courage and a slow descent into the abyss of complacency and ultimately a terminal existence. There are far worse things in life than getting hurt from a long fall, or a cut hand—its in becoming scared of everything then seeking as adults to vote for larger governments to conceal their neurosis due to their perpetual anxieties.

Democrats are Not Evolved due to their Yearning to be Victims

With every holiday and meeting with people you only see a few times a year comes the unsaid expectation from them for some sort of apology for being a publicly affirmed Republican conservative in all the traditional ways possible. They expect you to apologize for supporting a mother in the home with the children, to find welfare disgusting, and to endorse every failure known to human endeavor with a valueless live and let live acceptance of total failure. The game the way that liberals and so called “fence sitters” play it is that if you are going to be a conservative and insist on voting for someone like Donald Trump, that you’ll keep it to yourself. Nobody is supposed to make their thoughts about politics known to the public. So for me, as a very committed conservative who has this blog and has written books, hosted radio broadcasts and even done television and put myself out there in sometimes audacious ways, comes with it a stigma that I owe them something, which of course I don’t. The best part of Memorial Day for me this year was that Rush Limbaugh hosted his own program without a substitute and that I had time to listen to him the entire three hours in the garage as I opened the pool for the year. It was a blissful day because I normally don’t get much time to listen to him throughout a typical week day due to the many professional engagements that require my attention. The broadcast I enjoyed on Memorial Day can be found at the below video presentation in case you missed it or are coming to this article many years in the future, like so many of my readers do, sometimes a decade later once they’ve grown up and become wiser, and understand that if they had listened to me ten or twenty years ago, they would have had a much better life.

Listening to that broadcast reminded me of something I had been thinking about a lot lately. I don’t need Rush Limbaugh to explain it to me, but it is nice to hear that someone else understands these things. As I have said before, the Democrat Party is filled with people functioning from some sort of mental handicap, which doesn’t mean they are throw away people. But in their current state of liberalism they are not complete people whereas conservatives, (not all Republicans) are further along in understanding the nature of the world. There is a reason that America is the most powerful superpower in the world. There is a reason that the world wants to storm our borders while other countries couldn’t give away a seat into their nations. There is a reason that that some things and some people are better than others. And the way President Trump sells his role of leadership to other countries shows that his brand of conservatism isn’t just for show, like most American presidents have been, or leader in Congress. Trump understands that the keys to human happiness is to encourage people and nations to function above the line and to reject any part of their natures which is below the line.

I was indifferent to the game of golf for most of my life. My dad no fault of his used to have me caddy for him and that really turned me off to the game, because I have always been a leader. If I’m not the star of the show, I’m not very interested in whatever is going on. I don’t typically get in the way of other people being the star of the show. I usually leave it to them and get on with something that requires my talents as an exclusive leader. And caddying in golf wasn’t my thing. But now I’m at an age where I have lots of reasons to do it. I have arrived in a place in life where playing that game is kind of unavoidable if you want to talk the language that people of a certain nature understand. And those certain kinds of people often have in common a yearning for above the line behavior. Golf and the country clubs that come with them have in common a focus on above the line approaches to life, which is summed up in the game of golf itself. You start with a driver to see how close to the objective you can get. Then each swing of a golf club is designed to get you closer to that moment of precision that you get the ball in the hole with careful thought, patience, power, and precision. And the whole game is played on immaculately landscaped courses that remind the player that the good things in life are well managed. The trees are trimmed well. The grass is always nicely cut. And the people playing the game are expected to dress well and treat each other in an above the line way. I appreciate the game much, much more than I used to which is also why poor people and lazy people (usually synonymous with each other) aren’t also playing. I don’t mind carrying my own clubs, but having a caddy is much more of my nature than being one to say the least.

Trump as I’ve watched him over the years, I think grew into a great president not only from marrying a good woman in Melania, but in steering his business from casinos more into golf courses. His business focus certainly seems to have shifted his personal philosophies into this very above the line person. For instance, during the days where he was a known playboy and appearing on the Howard Stern Show, those were very below the lines ways of thinking, and he clearly wasn’t ready to be president. But these days, a decade later, he has changed into wanting everything he does to be above the line, and life in the White House has been very conducive toward that objective. And his interaction on international affairs is just as Rush Limbaugh pointed out at the start of his broadcast, Trump wants to help every nation to become better, in much the way that going golfing has a silent hope that everyone does well on the course because the experience of playing is to enjoy the above the line nature of it.

Where Democrats and liberals of all degrees of that political philosophy go wrong is that they insist to keep the world into a victimized state so their direction for running everything is very below the line. No human being can hope to ever be really happy when their focus within their own existence is to keep their minds on below the line behavior—otherwise a victimized status. And that is the heart of why family get togethers at holidays is so awkward. If you are living an above the line life, and most everyone else is looking for an excuse as to why they are failures, then there is nothing you can say that can make them feel better about what they are doing. In every family there are always a few members who are drowning in below the line behavior and they look to you as a life raft to save them but only under their terms. And on the national and international stage the rules are the same. People functioning below the line want company in their misery so they have started all these dumb rules of compliance. Good above the line Republicans don’t feel the need to rub people’s face in rival opinions so they are vulnerable to aggression which mostly comes from below the line people, Yet I disagree with that approach so I won’t be apologizing. And I don’t feel even the slightest temptation to do so. It is the task of everyone to take themselves above the line. Not for us to endorse their bad behavior by stepping below. And those are how the new rules of the game will be played, and Trump is the perfect president to bring that above, and I will not apologize for any of that. Ever.
