What To Do About the State of the Union Speech: Government workers should find another job and get on with their life

I’m assuming that the Democrats will stall on their three week deal and that President Trump will have to shut the government down again.  I think he thinks he needs to appear to move toward a deal for which the Democrats will blow it.  President Trump can obviously do what he wants about the State of the Union speech he is supposed to give to Congress. However, it would be my advice to him that he give his speech anyway, but to a MAGA rally to show the Washington establishment that life goes on with or without the government endorsement of activity. Nancy Pelosi cannot be allowed to have the kind of power she is trying to display in stopping the State of the Union speech. The halls of congress are not that valuable, especially if they are infested with socialists, as they are presently. The State of the Union speech is a phony affair full of kingly assumptions and is something that should be reinvented anyway. So why not take the speech directly to the people instead of playing the Beltway game? If Trump had a State of the Union rally which filled up the seats with MAGA hats and an overflow crowd, the optics would be quite terrifying to the Democrats and the national media at how much power and persuasion the president really did have even after the last election, and would go a long way to really solving the problems we currently have in government, so why not break with tradition and do it that way? I certainly would.

Of the 800,000 federal workers not receiving a paycheck for the second period in a row due to the government shutdown, around 57,000 are from the TSA which is a recently created branch of government that was only unionized around 2012. It’s not like they have a deep history of employment in America. Previously airlines were responsible for their own security so all the sob stories about the poor TSA workers is a moot point in my book. They shouldn’t be government employees, but airport employees and they shouldn’t be unionized. It’s that simple. I’m not a fan of the TSA, I hate dealing with them at airports—especially Chicago and Atlanta. They are a terrible creation created by panic driven politicians overreacting to global terrorism which is the fault of the political class anyway, for failing to really deal with the causes of terrorism to begin with. We don’t need more TSA agents, more security, and more government unions. We need a lot less.

If it were me in that 800,000 who weren’t getting a check from the government, I can promise that I wouldn’t be waiting around for the shutdown to break loose. I’d work another job to cover my bills. I would have done that after the first day of the shutdown. There is no way in the world that I would put my family at risk by sitting around waiting for a bunch of politicians to resolve the government shutdown. In fact, not all government workers are sitting around waiting for the situation to be resolved, Michael Mateos, a graphic designer and contractor for the federal government has been selling Star Wars models as extra income generating a few thousand dollars a month, which is a great idea. His story is what I’d consider a distinctly American one, and one I can support. People like him are what our country is all about, not a bunch of parasites sitting around waiting for the world to call them back to work.

https://www.marketwatch.com/story/this-furloughed-employee-found-a-unique-way-to-make-money-during-the-shutdown-2019-01-16

I can be sure to say that I would not be one of the 800,000 because I’ve been around a few years and can report that I’ve seen many disappointing work situations that resulted in layoffs, terminations, or greatly reduced hours—and I have never ever in my life a single day not received a pay check. I have at times worked three jobs at a time all days of the week to make sure my family had what they needed and I still work 12 to 16 hours ever single day toward successful implementation of occupational goals to ensure that I do what needs to be done to keep that trend alive, and that’s the kind of mindset all Americans should have in my book. I don’t understand and will never understand a person who gets a check from one job who sits around waiting for that job to be resolved. I don’t understand the teacher who will strike and hold up classes for little kids then go back to work after they get a 3% collective bargaining agreement and only then declare how much they love the kids while their fat asses were previously in the streets protesting the tax payers for more money. And I surely don’t understand the federal worker sitting around crying about their two missing paychecks when we have the hottest economy in the world and everyone is hiring. I’d get another job either temporarily or permanently, but I wouldn’t be waiting.

Nancy Pelosi indicated that the State of the Union speech wasn’t important anyway, essentially saying that President Trump wasn’t important, and that we should hold up everything until the shutdown is over. Well, I think we should lay off all 800,000 of those workers and privatize their positions. And Trump’s border wall is a must, and if he can’t get the money from Congress, then he needs to do it another way and run right over them. Obviously, the Democrats are all about changing America from a capitalist zone into a socialist one, and they do not have our best interests in mind. So who cares what they think? Trump should show them that life goes on, the speech gets done whether or not its at congress and the government workers aren’t that important, especially at the newly created TSA.

This is a time that I disagree with Sean Hannity over the State of the Union speech, who cares if President Trump is announced in the halls of congress, “Mrs Speaker, I present the President of the United States.” I don’t want to see Trump shaking hands with Nancy Pelosi, not now and not six months from now. Honestly, I’d like to see him body slam her in a WWF ring, and I say that with a sensitivity to equal rights. I’m fine with treating women equally to men, including in a cage match in front of 100,000 people. I don’t like Nancy Pelosi, I don’t want my president to work with her. Democrats have shown their hatred of my presidential pick and they have unleashed the forces of the FBI to attempt to change the election, and they are spying on us and trying to use that information to destroy our capitalist society, then lecturing us on the way we should all live, I don’t feel a need to be nice to those people and I certainly don’t want Trump to make nice with them at a State of the Union speech. In essence, the State of the Union is that we are at war as a nation, so we might as well admit that to ourselves. Forget the pomp of a speech in Congress with Nancy Pelosi standing in the background. Just have the speech as a MAGA rally and take it directly to the people and let the world see that life goes on without government workers and corrupt politicians. If I was Trump that is what I would do and I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s not what ended up happening. Change is good, especially when it takes power away from people like Nancy Pelosi. And as far as the government shutdown goes, I don’t care if they miss the next 50 pay checks. I’d say to them, find another job and get on with your life.

Trump the Change Agent: Why we have to have a bloody fight that hurts lots of people, because its healthy

Now the panic is really setting in, Democrats have drawn a line in the sand over the border wall debate and the government has been left unfunded causing a partial shutdown that has no resolution on the horizon. In companies that are really in trouble it is common to hire a new CEO or some other form of “change agent” and disrupt the siloed culture that caused the problems for the company and now Washington D.C. from the lowly reporter to the radical activist in Congress is learning why people elected Donald Trump into the White House. Reverting back to how things were never was on the table. Many people like me want Trump to fight the Democrats on this funding issue and to force their hand finally into revealing what parasites they have been all along. To the culture that has been in power I’m sure the events of today are very scary and disconcerting. But it had to happen, and should have happened a long time ago. Yet because it didn’t, we are having that fight now.

The hatred of everything Trump does is natural from a culture that has decided it never wanted to change. The Beltway as it is called is filled with people looting off the taxpayer and making great livings as government ants pushing and pulling paperwork around from desk top to desk top in a world that has gone digital. Many of the government workers that are attached to operating an ineffective government aren’t needed but are simply there for the whims of the aristocrats who want to believe they are more than they are and are paramount cogs in a wheel of progress managing the affairs of mankind. Even the Fox News pundits and news reporters operating on the Hill have expectations consistent with accepting a defunct culture that is entirely too expensive and is in tremendous need of change.

When a change agent enters a scenario especially in business, the walls go up quickly as nobody wants to be rooted out as incompetent. If they can make the life of the change agent miserable and attack them before it is discovered just how terrible the previous culture was, they will do it with every passive aggressive weapon devised from the imaginations of civilization. If you ever want to see the face of true evil tell a group of corporate executives that they have been spending too much time next to the water cooler talking about irrelevant events, or that the corner office with the nice window is going to be changed into a bathroom. Their faces will literally melt and the resistance is always fierce.

In the great book Leading Change by John Kotter centering on his Harvard Business ideas of the eight ways to change, most corporate cultures like political ones are not aware that they need to change and there is a great need to overcome their resistance and to build a consensus toward more productive results. But putting up with deficient thinking is simply not an option. Change is always needed as conditions are always evolving. Yet when methods of evoking change to meet market conditions are removed what you end up with in every situation is massive corruption, such as we see not only in our own federal government but all governments. The more barriers to change such as in totalitarian regimes, the less opportunities for change. Some would argue that everything is fine so why change it, what is ignored in such contemplations is that market conditions are always moving forward and that change is always needed to meet those conditions. It’s not an if question but a “when.” Not even the best football team in the world can escape this reality, every year change must take place to make their organizations conducive to any hope of victory. What a team did five years ago can’t be the same as is required for the upcoming season.

Yet in our government the corrupt money has been working against our Constitution, the open border craze is in full bloom and most of the legal minds and their apprentices have accepted the very un-American concept of a borderless world. The current culture of the Beltway is built on the money that pours into political campaigns from all types of sources and the assumptions that have been made have been directed away from national sovereignty into a mixed bag of values thrown together haphazardly like a kind of stew to be consumed by those willing to be the first in line to eat it. By the time it gets to the rest of us very little will remain and that is the grand ruse that has been going on for quite some time. The Washington D.C. culture has not had American interests in mind, they have rather put their own weaknesses and corrupt principles into the decision-making mechanisms and the result is a government that does not represent the people of America, but rather exploits them for the political power provided to those most corrupted by the status quo.

Change has been needed in American government for a very long time and that was the reason Donald Trump was elected. He promised to be a change agent and so far he has lived up to it, and where the previously corrupt culture on all political sides of the spectrum are guilty, they all equally hate the idea that that coveted corner office will be turned into a bathroom. The rules of power acquisition are being turned on their heads and none of them like it. But it has to be done even if they all grow so miserable that they commit suicide in their reluctance to accept the necessity for change. Getting rid of Trump from office won’t solve their problem just as firing a change agent in a corporate culture won’t take away the needs for change. But to their underdeveloped minds, it’s the only reality they can accept because they are so ruined that they can think of nothing else.

James Comey is just such a figure, listening to him speak of his “Washington D.C.” “Beltway” culture you will get a glimpse of nightlife on a Friday or Saturday sipping wine and listening to live bands playing 70s rock songs in tightly packed bars filled with like-minded, and over perfumed government workers insulated from reality by their larger than average pay checks and the vacuum of protections awarded them as members of the elite culture. It didn’t matter that Comey was an FBI Director, he could have been a college intern trying to sleep with their boss after too many drinks in one of those evenings, the culture is just as corrupt from top to bottom and the essence of the evil is that they expect the rest of us to pay for their entitlements without giving anything back. They want to rule us all, live the dream of aristocratic assumptions, but they want none of the downsides, especially when it comes to responsibility. They are happy to sell us all out to whomever is paying the checks because they have accepted unprincipled lives hidden beyond grand philosophic yearnings but their method of interacting with those conditions is to pass responsibility for it all to those not present which of course is the foundations to all corruption. In such an environment even the most well-intentioned soul becomes the vilest human being in the world.

This fight has to happen, and bodies need to be left in the wake. It needs to hurt because change is needed and that is precisely why Donald Trump was sent to Washington D.C. It is not acceptable to listen to those resisting that needed change try to remove him from office, or to bust him for made up political crimes, because his job is and will always be a change agent elected to conduct a service to the people of the United States. And that is a hard reality that the Beltway culture is going to have to live with. It doesn’t matter if over a million workers don’t get their pay checks, or how much political donors cry about a border wall that hurts their bottom line because its harder for drugs to get into the United States driving up their costs of doing business, what matters is what the people of America want. And corruption in Washington D.C. from the media to the seats in Congress are not viable realities of acceptability.

Take the Shutdown: It could be a lot worse

Shut it down! Shut down the government, forever as far as I care, and build the wall! Build the wall tall, and wide and draw that line in the sand and stick to it. It is time for an impasse and to stop the Democrats from dancing in Washington bars to the music of American Pie, driving our Chevys to the levy but the levy is dry. The levy is dry and the Chevys are out of business and its time to have the real conversations that should have always been going on, walls mean a recognition of American values and those values aren’t in expanding government as a primary employer of so many non-essential employees. The government is too big, too expensive, and too damn slow and it needs to be cut back, and budget showdowns like the one we are dealing with are just the ticket. Bravo President Trump!

There was a lot made about the flexibility of president Trump to cave into what Chuck Schumer called the “hard right” where voices like Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter and even me were pretty hard on the president not to cave to the pressures of the Hill, to pass another budget impasse and kick the can down the road into January. But that is typically the role of any CEO, they listen to all the conditions and make the best deal for their side of things. Trump is always willing to listen, so he changes positions a lot. But when a radio personality like Rush Limbaugh makes a statement, its hard not to pay attention because he does have his finger on the pulse of the world. Limbaugh has conservatively 14 million weekly listeners, more than that if you count hour by hour ratings through the week. That more than most magazines and television shows, and is a huge platform to speak from. But those listeners don’t come out of thin air, they are a very real population sector that isn’t represented by other forms of entertainment, and they effectively make up the Trump base. Why shouldn’t Trump listen when the noise of Washington D.C. is attempting to use chaos as a cover for pork belly money projects that exacerbate the problem of out of control budgets?

And what bleeds our budget in the U.S. economy more than a lack of border security? Sure if people want to buy drugs they’ll find a way to get them, but why make it easy for enemies of America to poison our work force? Personally speaking I am an employer and I hire hundreds of people every year, if I want to hire 5 traditionally white American citizens, 3 of them will fail their drug test. It’s a massive problem and the enemies of America have been successful in poisoning the traditional workforce with the product they smuggle across the Mexican border with North America. I would go so far to call it a detrimental circumstance. Now also as an employer, I have my needs and they will be fulfilled, but it requires every company to think outside the box to deal with that problem. So why make it easy for such malicious characters to continue shipping the poison into America?

Without question, Democrats are all about open borders and dissolving the sovereignty of nations so that there can be one global government managed by the United Nations. That has been their plan for a long time and now that things are coming unraveled due to the Trump presidency, the strings are showing. It wasn’t so obvious to most people before because they believed all this garbage about continuing budget resolutions and monstrous government projects that just employ people to play on Facebook all day getting paid for doing nothing. Government didn’t listen when people were speaking. I have been speaking about this lunacy for years, all of my adult life. Trump was elected because many people like me stopped listening to the bullshit and started demanding results. Trump is in the White House because of the Rush Limbaugh audience and the NRA members, and the Sean Hannity audience then to a smaller extent the Fox News audience, the people who still like Clint Eastwood and John Wayne movies, the products of old Hollywood. And the pain that Democrats and Rino Republicans are feeling is that they tried to institute a change agency culture from the perspective of the Beltway and people have rejected it.

There are places in California and in New England that have subscribed to this Beltway culture of big government progressivism renamed from its previous communist terminology. Seattle and Portland are cities that are openly embracing socialism for instance. But most of the rest of North America isn’t going for it and the momentum is shifting away from them and they can feel it. There was literal desperation in Nancy Pelosi’s voice when they reacted to Trump’s proposal to shut down the government over Christmas if he didn’t get his border wall money. Because if he is successful, they will lose forever their leverage of public sentiment and that will literally destroy their base, which is already in trouble from young radicals wanting to pull the entire party further to the political left. What all of Washington D.C. culture has been espousing for decades has been out of touch with the people who put them in office and Trump was sent to the White House to clean it up. All Rush Limbaugh did was remind President Trump of that.

I did my own personal bits on the matter and we all should, after all if President Trump doesn’t have our support when he needs it most the options for us are a bloody one, and nobody wants to see that. I don’t want bloodshed, I always prefer a legal means of solving a problem. But we can’t give our country away to a world desperate to loot off our progress and to insist on socialist forms under a global flag. If the world wants help becoming independent and more capitalist in nature, I’m all for helping them out. But I am not going to allow America to be destroyed because the world’s education institutions produced a false philosophy rooted in Karl Marx and Immanuel Kant instead of the great late Adam Smith. Adam Smith’s thoughts on capitalism are far more powerful and the proof is in America. To protect that value for the world to see we need a border wall which is exactly what Democrats are afraid of revealing, the obvious differences between capitalism and socialism. If drug dealers and Marxist revolutionaries cannot flood the American population with Trojan horse insurgents, then how does the Democrat party survive in the future? The answer is that they don’t.

So I applaud the stand the Trump administration is taking. I fully support it. I don’t care if thousands of government workers are at the homeless shelters out of work, because its better than armed insurrection. A lot less blood will be spilled this way, which is how the system is supposed to work. But a word of caution to the big government types, the CIA, the FBI and all the losers who watch every little thing I do as well as others like me who listen to Rush Limbaugh, are proud NRA members and are severely anti-drug, anti-illegal immigration and Trump supporters through thick and thin—be happy Trump is protecting you from a real judgement day. Take the government shut down and shut the hell up—for your own good.

How Republicans Should Address Health Care: Dealing with the future to have a real plan

Warning, this may be the most important thing you read and see in your life, proceed with that understanding:

Now that the election is over its time for Republicans to announce to the world what their health care plan is, which of course in the short-term will have to be a more competitive free market option. But everyone knows that the old days of drug induced medicine are over, just as stage coaches were replaced by automobiles. We are at a point where the medical industry is under a complete overhaul, as provided in the example in the video below by the Japanese proposal of using AI to produce new healthy cells to replace damaged or diseased tissue within a body. The solution to all medical problems is in cell repairs, not surgeries or chemical medicines. So, any health care plan must look at where human civilization is headed, not where it’s been before anything can be seriously considered, so the Republican plan needs to incorporate that reality. If you want to make the heads of Democrats explode, tell them that you want to solve health care as a detrimental condition instead of just throwing drugs at people. Tell people who you can actually fix them instead of just numbing their pain and the leverage of the whole health care issue changes.

The trouble with regenerative medicine is purely in human psychology and this is why politicians have not yet touched the issue, but they ultimately will have to. President Trump is just the kind of president who could do it, but what must be overcome by the public is the desire of approximately 85%, maybe more, of the population to believe in the cycle of life and death which has been with us since the beginning of all recorded history. I would argue that like the Vico cycle, the themes of life and death were always meant for human minds to solve which is why specifically it is our species with their vast imaginations that have been born and have evolved to solve these types of complicated problems. Death and disease are literally solvable problems and they are at our doorstep in this current time to carry mankind well into the future. Yet because most people don’t know any better, they are resistant to change. Like most dysfunctional sentiments, they would rather die than change their minds about things, because they have literally been programmed from their birth to always look for an end to it all at some point.

I would not call myself a transhumanist, but as people who know me understand, the name of this site is “Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom.” There has never been a part in my life where just being human was acceptable. Even in my earliest memories I have always wanted to be superhuman. I never have said, I am too tired to work, too tired to think, care for my family or anything. I often stay up all night working and reading and all day working without any sleep at all and I love every day of my life. If I lived for the next ten thousand years, I can say that I would never be bored for one minute of that entire time and I would be very happy to do and learn and live for even longer than that. If the Vico cycle politically states that humans have always went through various cycles of theocracy, aristocracy, democracy then anarchy, all elements that we see today around the world at various stages always in combat with each other, then all our lives and the religions we have invented to deal with the problems of life and death are essentially the same. There isn’t any mythology or philosophy that properly deals with the possibility of a life stimulated by regenerative medicine. Humans just didn’t see the possibilities of regenerative medicine coming and the artists and philosophers that still construct our social context are still rooted in ancient ways of viewing death.

I was reminded of my twenties lately while watching an episode of Josh Gates’ Expedition Unknown where he took a vision quest with some shaman in Peru using ayahuasca to induce the hallucinogenic journey of what they call the journey of life and death. I was very hungry to learn more about these shaman trips while I was reading Primitive Mythology by Joseph Campbell in Waffle Houses at 4 am in the morning when I was around 23 years old. I was always impressed with how shaman were able to step into the mind of the sick and help them recover from whatever it was that had a grip on their souls, so I think there is some merit to these techniques. But what Josh Gates went through is a supercharge on his brain and all the experiences and thoughts he had experienced over his lifetime. The shaman were able to journey with him on a kind of quantum realm that they had learned to tap in to. But the nature of a soul and life itself does not need to be defined by life and death, only by existence and the amount of contribution that it makes to higher dimensional realities, whether on the very small-scale such as those that shaman likely tap into by using the artificial stimulant ayahuasca or on the scale of the huge, where entire universes are as common as cells in our body, and the one we live in is just one. All those realities intersect with each other in ways we still don’t understand and I think the key to grasping them is that humans need to step away from the cycle of life and death to help in some way the reasons for our birth. Obviously there is a reason for intelligent life, for beings like us who can think and conceptualize and to solve the riddles of the universe and all the quantum realms that connect it we must step away from the cycle of life and death that requires each generation to learn just a little from the previous one, but only gives professional observers about 50 years to crack a code, which isn’t enough time.

What is coming out of Japan and the Mayo Clinic in America are options for a completely new way of living and understanding our role in the universe. While ayahuasca may stimulate a brain in hyper charged ways typical shaman and other religious leaders view the results in the context of their religions which are formed around observations of birth and death. While the observations are interesting, the context is the variable, and that is essentially the case behind the health care debate. If we are talking about keeping a system in place that supports pharmaceutical companies and the economy they have built on delaying death as long as possible that’s one thing and is at the heart of the Democrat desire for a single payer socialist system. As we know from history, politicians whether they be church leaders or village shaman use their connection to the afterlife to control populations. And Democrats are attempting to control people’s fear of death and the pain that leads to it as a way to control their voter base. And like most people, many people are willing to die if at some point in their life they can hold great power over others. That is why health care is the number one election issue. But think of what Republicans could do in the future if they could change the view of healthcare without the conservative base getting too freaked out about it? It’s only a matter of time before politics, art and science catch up to the ambitions of the imaginations of the human race. The question is, who will do it, and what benefits will come their way as they redefine the entire game? If anyone can do it, Trump can and these new Republicans coming together under his leadership. Truly, the future is what we make it and that reality is happening much sooner than most people realize.

If these concepts are new to you, feel free to watch all the videos contained here in their entirety.  This is the future, we might as well align ourselves with it now rather than later.

The Shooting in Thousand Oaks, California: Why can’t we all just get along–because liberals don’t want to, they have declared war

In the wake of another mass shooting, this time in Thousand Oaks, California by what people are saying was a mentally deranged 26-year-old Afghanistan war vet leaving over a dozen dead, gun control and civility were cited as the things that people wanted, not just from the people present at the press conference, but across the nation. Why can’t we have gun control? Why can’t we all just come together and get along and heal this divided country? While they were saying it they might as well have asked why monkeys can’t fly like they do in The Wizard of Oz or why blue can’t be red, or green viewed as purple and why couldn’t Elvis still be alive making music—or Michael Jackson for that matter? Why can’t reality be suspended to fulfil our fantasies is essentially what came from the press conference in Thousand Oaks, in the aftermath of the tragedy was a desire to find civility and peace in all these mass shootings so that a solution could be brought forth that allowed people to just dance at a nightclub on a Wednesday night to some country music. Oddly enough, some of the people there were survivors of the country music concert in nearby Las Vegas where another gunman opened fire into a crowd there—of course the motive of the killer was never determined or released. On this shooting the motive was released much quicker, it was mental illness, PTSD and ABC News almost seemed to be reading off a script as they announced it. But not so fast.

As all this was happening Democrats were looking to literally steal the election in Florida from Rick Scott for the senate seat he won there with votes that are appearing out of nowhere. The lady in Georgia is trying to do the same—apparently Oprah wasn’t enough. Tucker Carlson from Fox News had his house attacked by ANTIFA and threats to his life were made. Of course, there have not yet been any arrests even though the protestors were going well beyond free speech. They were violent and implicating a promise of violence. Nancy Pelosi in the newly won Democrat majorities in the House are promising endless investigations of President Trump who has done nothing to be impeached but beat them in an election, which continues to happen. Democrats won the House for only one reason, because many never-Trumpers wanted out of their jobs because they didn’t like the way things were shaping up in the Republican Party, so they retired in most cases, around 38 Republicans and 17 Democrats leaving a lot of open seats coming up in this particular election giving Democrats a slight edge in filling those vacancies. It says more about the Republican Party coming together under Trump than anything the Democrats did. In Atlanta hoping to intimidate voters in voting for the eventual loser Stacy Abrams was members of the New Black Panther Party posing for pictures on social media dressed in military gear and holding guns as if to say, vote for our person or die. And when Donald Trump finally fired Jeff Sessions the day after the election there were protests and endless streams of anxiety from the political left over that, which is well within his right to do.

There is no prospect for peace in America. There are domestic enemies who wish to toss away the Constitution and to change the way that we conduct ourselves in American culture. They do not want to get along, they wish to be agents of change to alter the behavior of American life and so long as that is occurring there will be violence and conflict. The reason that so many people are willing to support Donald Trump in the presidency and why there were gains in the Senate, and very minimal losses in the House due to the Republican retirements specifically, is because people are aware of the new civil war that we are currently under. Big money from those domestic enemies have financed that war effort on a media front and so long as those agitators are functioning and challenging American society there will not be peace, so don’t even indulge in the illusion.

The cries for gun control after the Thousand Oaks shooting are just to disarm good Americans so that the bad ones can run free to do as ANTIFA did at Tucker Carlson’s house, threaten and dominate those standing in opposition to the point of death. It will be interesting to learn more about the shooter, the former Marine who did spend extended time in Afghanistan exposed to Islamic culture. PTSD sounds like an excuse to me, there are surely deeper issues not so neatly summed up. But the bottom line is that occupants of that night club should have been armed. The bouncers in the very least should have been carrying guns. So should the security outside the venue. If people inside had guns, they could have shot back instead of hiding under pool tables and having to jump out of windows just to survive. As it always is, more guns are the answer, not less. And eliminating gun free zones is the way to stop these mass shootings. The shooter was a frequent customer to that establishment and he knew where the guns wouldn’t be, making the entire area a soft target.

Gun control and civility are not even on the radar so long as insurgents are trying to change American culture through dirty tricks and outright threats of violence. When the question is asked, when can we return to more bi-partisanship, when can we all just get along, well the answer is in those who are imposing themselves upon the rest of us with threats of violence, impeachment and law breaking. The threats to peace come from these insurgent Democrats who want single payer health care, illegal aliens, and gun control to change America from a prosperous first world country into some armpit of Europe. It is not an act of violence to stand up for yourself, it’s a right. If there had been people at that nightclub armed in a way to stand up for themselves and not having to wait the short, but deadly time that it took for police to arrive, then the situation would be different.

The change agents looking to turn America from one thing to another have already had quite an impact and most of that started before I was even born fifty years ago. While guns where shown in westerns on television and movies during the golden age of cinema all through the 30s, 40s, and 50s Americans didn’t run around killing each other because we all at least had some shared values about what American society was, and gun ownership protected those values-more as a symbol than a tool. But now carrying a gun and the gun itself has been made out to be a monster by the same radical leftists that want to impeach Donald Trump for nothing more than winning an election. They expect us, “gun supporters” to sit down and shut up while they steal the elections in Florida and Georgia with made up votes pulled out of a few counties known for cheating. And we’re supposed to just shut up and like it. That is the source of the problem, and until that is gone, there will be no peace in America. Because we are at a time of war and it wasn’t Republicans that started it.

How Economics Work: Just look to the home of the Whopper

One thing that kept coming up during the election of 2018 was the Democrat notion of inside out economics, as if something grew from nothing to formulate economic activity. Clearly, the only way that economic development occurs is from the top down, starting with an idea, then its implementation, followed by creation, then employment followed by delivery. Jobs do not come from nowhere to suddenly start delivery. Only people who don’t understand the basic foundations of economics could think such a thing and it was Sherrod Brown the very liberal senator from Ohio who said it most when challenged by Jim Renacci—his Republican rival. The entire idea that government creates jobs is a ridiculous notion and it is at the center of all liberal politics. Only a top down approach works which is the general understanding of conservative thought.

A great example of the nature of job creation is in my local community. Near the intersection of Liberty Fairfield Road in Butler County, Ohio and Rt. 4, where I live is several developments that serve the local community such as a Kroger, many restaurants, hardware stores and a wonderful golf course called Elk Run. My wife and I are very busy so we eat out a lot and usually take our pick rotating around all the various food options that are located at that intersection, everything from a McDonald’s to Wendy’s and Frisch’s. There’s a Gold Star, and a Skyline Chili, a Penn Station, and Chinese food—there are so many options including a few pizza places, that there is always plenty of choices and that makes our location particularly attractive to live.

Left leaning people dislike too much development, they prefer lots of green space, which I understand. I like nature, but more than that I love to see the creations that humans come up with. So I enjoy watching new developments come to being. At that intersection there have been a few plots of land that I was hoping would become new restaurants to give us even more options than we already have, but they have sat empty for decades waiting for the right time. Again, left leaning people like to see a lack of development because they think nature is the thing to follow. But in areas where human beings have decided to reside, the ambitions of the human mind can be and to me is, a very beautiful thing. So it was quite a delight to my wife and I to learn that those two plots of land were finally going to become something other than scenery.

At one location across from the Elk Run neighborhood a Dairy Queen is being built, which is very exciting. I love Dairy Queen and this one will be within walking distance so I can take my grandchildren there easily for fun little memories as opportunities present themselves. The second I learned about from a good friend of mine who is in the restaurant creation business, and that is that a new Burger King will be built across from McDonald’s. That is fantastic news because I do love to eat a good Whopper occasionally. My family eats at McDonald’s probably about 5 to 8 times a week, but sometimes we get tired of it. Especially when they are going through management problems, as they are presently. Fast food workers are always high turnover groups by their nature and managers are always challenged with creating reliable staffs. If they get a manager of one of these restaurants who doesn’t get it, the lines are often long at the drive-thrus, and the orders get messed up. So its great to have options and that usually is Wendy’s which is down the street a bit to the southwest.

Burger King is just another great option for us and its creation is literally coming from a plot of land that wasn’t doing anything and is becoming something that gives people like me an option in dining. Its creation didn’t come from some government bureaucrat who looked at that location and thought, “I think people will be best served to have a hamburger place built here.” Rather an entrepreneurial type looked at the demographic data from the area, checked the available land and its pricing and looked hard at a forecast of the new Trump economy and thought that they might make some money at that location. So they put up their money, took a lot of risk, and started getting the permits to build a new restaurant so that a guy like me could visit and have unlimited options to buy a Whopper when I grew hungry. The restaurant builder was taking a chance that he could compete with the surrounding competition and initiated their endeavor based on their best information. There is nothing inside out about that process, only the top down.

The restaurant owners of these new businesses expect to make money, if they don’t then none of the effort would be worth it. It is in the potential of making money that makes all the hard work into building such a place possible. Without that incentive, step one would never happen. That is why socialism fails throughout the world because it is hard to build things, anything. There are so many considerations and without a motivation of profit to lure out the ambitious, nothing happens. Not everyone is equipped to be a restaurant builder or an entrepreneur. Such people often have to work 60 to 100 hours a week, so it’s not for everyone. But the potential to become wealthy with such work motivates the most ambitious to try their hand and that is the key to the American capitalist system. To me I enjoy the scenery of human development sometimes more than a nice mountain or a group of trees. What the human imagination does with wood and stone to create variety in the human experience is something that is very interesting to observe. I never get tired of driving through any town to see what human beings have built for themselves out of their attempts to create wealth. It can and often is a very beautiful thing to observe. It’s not so good when those buildings built with hopes and dreams end up bankrupt and empty. But when they work, they are great to see.

All those inventions of thought make a life-like mine more productive. When I am trying to catch up on the DVR recordings over a weekend and we need to grab a quick bite to eat, I enjoy having the option to get a Whopper and to spend a Sunday afternoon learning things I’ve recorded by people who made those programs with an effort at making money. Everyone’s ambitions come together for my benefit and that is the miracle of modern society. It’s also the nature of all economic activity. Businesses don’t exist to provide jobs, but the jobs are created to pave the way for wealth creation, expanded GDP. And that is something that no Democrat ever came to terms with. They just never understood that basic concept. And that fault is purely theirs. Economic theory is not a newly discovered science, we know the rules. Only liberals have decided to ignore the rules to bend the world to some ancient vision of Karl Marx who was creating the premise of Marxism before a McDonald’s was ever built. But in these days of wealth creation under a capitalist system, the rules are quite clear. And they are wonderful to see in areas experiencing economic growth. Because that is evidence of something even better happening and with every new place of business that opens, it says that the economy is expanding, not contracting and that is always something to celebrate.

The World of the Living, and the Dead: Understanding what makes success and failure

I don’t think about it too much because honestly, I just live my life and try to have as much fun with it along the way. But I am also a very talented person, and a smart person so naturally I associate by default with people at all levels of society, and I enjoy it. Yet my entire life, liberal society—the part of our culture that has a certain agenda wrapped in what they call, “progressivism” has attempted to herd me into some place for which they control and I obviously have never cooperated. And their illusions of power have given them the sanctimonious lust to believe that they could edit events in my life in some dominating way. Personally, I may be one of the sanest people alive, and one of the most giving, but to liberal society I am an extreme outlaw as defined by them and that conflict has gone on all of my life, from my years as a little kid to the present, 50 years later. But lately things have been different, even more panicked from that liberal side. Lately liberals have been harassing important people who I know in an attempt to cause them to distance themselves from me in shame, which actually is a direct frustration that they have regarding their lack of power in the upcoming midterms. I understand that and I see many of these antics as the last attempt of a dying party to stay in power so they attack what they believe is the power behind the conservative movement, and they start with people like me who obviously feed a great deal of information and charisma to the base of the philosophy of conservatism. Not everyone needs to have a Fox News television show or a radio show like Rush Limbaugh. Because of all my talents such venues would be too limiting for me, so I do what I do in my own unique way and that’s never going to change, and is part of Making America Great Again. But before they are crushed out of existence I feel it appropriate to explain to them a few errors in their judgment just out of compassion.

The biggest mistake that liberals have made in their entire philosophy is that they believe that all things spring forth by group assimilation. Such as, if the group doesn’t acknowledge that you exist, that you don’t. I’ve never personally cared whether I was acknowledged for something that I do. It’s nice of course and is a show of respect from the recipients, but I’d do the things I do whether 100,000 people witnessed it, or if nobody did. If I were on the face of the moon with nobody around, I would do all the things I do everyday regardless, and that drives liberals crazy. The way that they herd people into various groups for which liberalism desires to control is by this basic assumption that humans need acknowledgment from other humans in order to conduct any behavior. While most people have been taught to respond to these liberal aspects of behavior, instinctively, they desire freedom from such intellectual controls. That is why Donald Trump can go to Florida and pack a 20,000-person arena night after night while Bernie Sanders could barely get 200 in the same venue.

The second is that even among the smartest and achievement-based people we have in American culture liberals want to believe that those people would never be who they were if not for some help in getting there. This is where my name has been brought up quite a lot lately, as the midterms have become closer and people pretty high up in the food chain have actually been threatened to disassociate themselves away from me with the implied fear that their power will be taken away if they don’t comply. But here’s the thing, people don’t make people great. Associating with other people doesn’t make a person powerful. What does is in what people can do for each other. If you are a person who has a lot to offer, people will love you. It doesn’t matter how much Google tries to censor you, it doesn’t matter how many idiots try to protest against your name, it doesn’t matter if the entire press of the city or the nation turns against you and tries to make you sound like some crazy person—but what does matter is if you can do things that other people value. Liberal society does not make or break people as they believe. Success is truly in the eye of the beholder and is clearly in their power to control. Donald Trump certainly understands this notion and he has undercut the mysticism that liberal society has functioned from for many hundreds of years. Trump knows that no matter what people say about you, that if you have something that people desire, they will rush to you even under a barrage of bullets to get to it. So to be successful, liberal society has no control over that and it drives them insane with hate. I learned that trait very early in my life and I knew that it was always a matter of time before someone like a Donald Trump came along to expose that weakness in liberal logic, and much to my joy it is happening now. When we talk about making America great again this essential individual trait is what we are discussing.

A lot of people who knew me many years ago wonder why I’m not working in Hollywood. When I was younger it’s really the only thing I professionally wanted to do. And I did have my stints in that town both as a writer and as a stuntman. Once I learned that Hollywood was really like a giant high school with all the power playing among peer groups that I always hated, I distanced myself from them. They certainly wanted what I had to offer. But I didn’t want what they had. So I went and did my own thing and was successful at other things. People with real talent don’t have to play the games socially that liberals propose. If you are good at things people can’t take that away from you. They can make it more difficult to find an audience but they can’t stop talent.

Ironically this is why the Make America Great Again movement is happening now, in 2018 as opposed to 2008 or 1998 or the year of my birth, 1968. Liberal society made its move against traditional America and they infested Hollywood, the media, academia, just about everything as far back as 1948 to be precise as China was taken over by communism and other global collectivists thought their time to shine had arrived, so they made their moves to herd all members of society into groups of their political design, and Americans being kind people sort of let things go on out of politeness. But once they figured out what was happening they started to take action. Now with the internet and the ability to speak without the censor of an editor of a major magazine or newspaper, people’s true thoughts are coming forward and they have found a voice behind Donald Trump. It’s not that Donald Trump is the leader of this movement, he’s simply the product of it and that’s what liberals just don’t understand. With online chat rooms, Instagram, and Twitter people have a voice that can get out. Of course, those internet companies that host those platforms are regretting the empowerment that they gave to individual voices, this wasn’t how things were supposed to go, but honestly, if they didn’t do it someone else would have.

So back to the original premise, there isn’t any amount of isolation that can be applied to a person like me to stop this process from going forward. By forcing people to distance themselves from me who greatly benefit from my relationship it won’t make me go away. People develop relationships with other people not out of loyalty or even a favor, they do so because of what the other person can do for them, whether it be just friendship or intellectual enrichment. Relationships aren’t determined by liberal society, they are built on individual achievement. A low life slouch will not have a relationship with a productive, loving individual because those two types of people are not compatible. They can’t be brought together artificially through liberal categorization. And neither can a successful person be separated by people who help their success, because it isn’t the rules of liberalism that makes people successful, its individual merit.

A note to those who want to think of me as a “fringe” person, nothing could be further from the truth. The definition of “fringe” again has been attempted to be defined by liberalism in the modern sense and it has failed miserably. Most people think the way I do about most things, which makes me very much the mainstream. What I say and do ultimately are the kinds of things most people find appealing and that is why no matter how much attempt is tossed in the direction to separate me from other people, they will never work because the mainstream sentiment exists between me and them, not liberalism and them. What liberalism is finally learning is much what the character Bruce Willis played in the Sixth Sense learned at the end of that movie, that all along he was dead. The movie wasn’t about him getting back to his loved ones, it was in the little boy helping him realize that he had died. And for liberals, their big moment is coming with the midterms. That is their sixth sense. Separating me from other people won’t change that reality because we are all in the world of the living. Liberalism however is already in the world of the dead. They just don’t know it yet.
