Let’s Talk Business

Making Money Online

Make Money OnlineFor a minute now I have been focused writing solely on the political landscape, so I wanted to take a minute and discuss business as much of what I see in the political climate also exists in the world of business. Specifically I am addressing the level of honesty in business. In my opinion, no where is the comparison more stark than in the world of making money online.

Beware Deceptive Marketing

It seems many if not most online marketer’s will say what ever they have to when it comes to getting the sale. Case in point is a webinar I was watching last night.

This webinar was a bonus I received upon purchasing a new product. Fyi, once I have tested the system I bought I will post my results. Back to the webinar. It was touted that I was going to be shown a method to drive unlimited free traffic to my websites.

The first 45+ minutes was the guy showing me fancy pictures of all the places he had been to in the last few years as he was making money online. The next half hour was touting the use of email, in combination with CPA marketing, to make money online.

For people that have no experience it was useful information except he only told half the story. Therein lies the problem, having just enough knowledge to be dangerous. I am certain his strategy works but at what cost? In fact I have used the strategy myself. The problem is that there is a high rate of attrition in this strategy.

Essentially you go out and buy email addresses and then send what are called “email submit” CPA offers to those emails and you get paid when people take the action required. What he did not say is that those supposed offers for a “Free” IPAD or the “Free: gift card are not free. You must agree to purchase several product before you get the free IPAD. This tends to tick a lot of people off and guess what happens then? You guessed it, they unsubscribe from your list.

In addition, because you purchased their email from a third party, they never actually opted in to your list. So you run the risk of getting your IP’s banned and thus being shut down.

Now comes the “Big Reveal”. This supposed “Free Traffic Method” costs…wait for it…$1495.00 to initially set up. This will not be your only cost however. Remember your are going to be ticking off a bunch of people so to keep it going you are going must constantly replenish your list of emails and that costs more money.

This type of marketing not only damages the credibility of the marketer on the webinar but also the marketers that said it was free in the first place, thus casting doubt on the viability of the original product you bought. It seems though that marketers do not care about their reputation or their integrity. It is also noteworthy to mention that so long as people continue to deal with dishonest marketers like this, the dishonest marketer’s will continue to sell their snake oil.

Lastly, I can set up this exact program that this guy wants to charge near $1500.00 for about $500.00 total initial cost. Again the problem arises that most new marketers are not aware of this.

Personally I think it is unethical to take advantage of a person’s lack of experience just to make a buck. I sell to people all the time that need my services but I believe in full disclosure so my clients and partners can make an intelligent decision. Sadly from my experience most marketer’s do not see it this way. It makes my angry because it also effects my reputation.

Will it stop? Probably not. Has it stopped in politics? I think we all know the answer to this.

Integrity and our word is all we have at the end of the day and it seems to me that is in short supply these days.

Exposing The Lie

To hear many people tell it women are exploited to no end in this “Man’s World”. I want to examine just how accurate this is. To hear women tell it, and specifically many of the powerful ones, women have been exploited and objectified for years.

In my opinion, none of these women ever complain when their looks or body helps to advance their agenda or career.

Meghan KellyCase in point, take a look at these pictures of Meghan Kelly of Fox News, a reporter clearly carrying water for Hillary Clinton.

Where did the nice innocent girl go?

Not quite racy enough to make the point? Fair enough. How about the second image?

Meghan KellyNow I don’t know about women much but I do know that I do not walk around with “My Junk” hanging out. Apparently the rules really are different for women.

Can someone please explain to me how it is okay for women to exploit themselves like this and then somehow it is wrong for a man to point that out?

Along the same vein, why is it we never see a fat and ugly woman reporting the news. Is there no woman, that is not beautiful, that can do just as effective or a more effective job than the “Hot” one? This hypocrisy just astounds me.

Women are perfectly happy to exploit themselves to get what they want but are the first ones to complain when that exploitation is exposed. Women are the first ones to complain when a man exploits them but are suspiciously silent when they exploit themselves.

I hear so many people complain that the media is corrupt, politician’s are corrupt, cop’s are corrupt etal…Meanwhile the real truth goes completely ignored. People are corrupt!

I wrote the other day that we live in a very sick society. We do. The problem is that most people think it is the other person, read conservative, that is the problem. The same also applies to many conservatives.

I, for one, am getting a little sick and tired of hearing the rhetoric. If you don’t want me to make comments about your boobies then put them away. In addition, stop using your bodies to advance your agenda’s and perhaps men will stop talking about it.

To me it seems like basic common sense. Then again I am just a misogynistic “Alpha” male. What could I possibly know or understand?

I am not a journalist, I am just your average American male. By the way, men also have a word for women that dress like that and act in objectifying ways. We call them Sluts! I would much rather be called Misogynistic than a slut. Oh there I go again.

People really need to start telling the truth. You think my language is abhorable? You should hear how catty women talk about each other…lol. Uh oh….no…don’t tell the truth.

Ever been a fly on the wall when a bunch of women get together to gossip about the one person not present? Not pretty!

Women will have you believe that they can dress and act any way they want and it is up to men to deal with it. Here’s a news flash. We deal with it just fine, just not the way you would have us deal with it.

Here’s the thing, if I walked around with my D$@K half hanging out women would go nuts, pun intended. In fact I would be in jail for indecent exposure. Yet a women can walk around half-naked and then bitch when a man makes a comment about it. Talk about a double standard.

The power’s that be would have you focus on these inconsequential and moronic issues, meanwhile the real issues like equal pay, a rigged political system, pay for play, stagnant economy, declining wages, illegal immigration, ISIS, etc…all go un or under reported.

Personally I do not care who Donald Trump did or did not have sex with! I do care whether the constitution of the United States is upheld and enforced. I do not want to hear what Donald Trump did 20 or 30 years ago. I don’t care. I did a lot of stuff thirty years ago too.

What I do care about is whether we elect a President that will uphold the law and not break it! How long are the Hillary supporter’s going to ignore what is staring all of us in the face? How long are the women of this country going to vote for Hillary, not because she has earned their vote but because she is a woman? How long are the Progressive’s going to chant Hillary’s name to appear enlightened?

I have zero issue with electing a woman President. What I do have an issue with is the woman that you chose is evil incarnate. I mean really, you could not have found a woman to represent women that would edify women the world over? You had to pick the most disgusting example of what we are as a people?

I think I read somewhere that before we try to pull the splinter out of someone else’s eye we should pull the lumber out of our own! Pretty good advice. Clearly disregarded though because it comes from that ancient and antique book called the Bible and we all know those ideas are out-dated.

Here are a few solutions to the situation we find ourselves in. First, rather than telling everyone else what is wrong with them, how about taking a look in the mirror and examine your own life. Second, if you want to stop the corruption then stop it in your life first. Perhaps then you will stop voting for corrupt people. Moreover you will not accept that corrupt behavior in the first place!


Conspiracy Theory?

Obama 2016This is what our current leaders, a term which I use loosely; leaders that is, would have us believe. Am I the only one that is getting tired of hearing this excuse. Let’s face it, there is a full 47% of the population that is Bat-Shit Crazy.

These people thinks that Donald Trump is the devil because of comments that he made about Women in Hollywood and women that seek out the rich and powerful and famous. Still no one has disputed the truth of those comments. Again you might not like the language but we all know he was not lying.

Moreover how many have heard the things women will say about men in the ladies room of a nightclub. I can tell you from what women have told me it is also not pretty.

Hillary ClintonMeanwhile Hillary is caught on audio laughing at the fact that she defended a rapist, had him take a polygraph, which he passed and as a result has lost all faith in any polygraph test and then laughs out loud. Do the 47% find anything completely evil about that? She basically admits the guy was guilty a sin and then laughs about it!

With regards to the emails, now it is a Russian conspiracy to help get Trump elected. Now who is touting conspiracy theories? Will you people ever wake up. Read your history books. This is exactly the corruption of power that led to the rise of the Soviet Union.

The Russian Czars were so corrupt with power that the people finally had enough and they thought the answer was to take all of that unearned power for themselves and along came Stalin.

Think it can not happen here? Think again. Unless we learn from history we are doomed to repeat it! It can and will happen here. In fact it is already happening.

Just listen to the audio tape of Hillary laughing about a young girl that was raped and her client getting away with it.

Listen Here

Now that you have listened, just how sick is that? This is the person almost half of our country wants to elect President of the United States? And you think I am wrong for calling you Bat-Shit Crazy? What would you call it?

And what about her emails basically calling Catholics and Christians delusional at best? What if we said that about Muslims? How crazy would the liberal media go over that one? Probably not at all if it was the liberals who said it but what if it was Donald Trump? or the Republicans?

I said in a previous article you people are going to get what you want and oh are you going to regret it but by then it will be too late!

Oh that’s right this is all a conservative conspiracy that Vladimir Putin is spear-heading….

How come it is always a conservative conspiracy? If it was anyone else…ask yourself….if your child constantly made excuses for getting their hand caught in the cookie jar would you lose trust in them? And that is your child! Why do you continue to give Hillary a pass on these things?

It has gotten to the point of laughable. Your apathy is going to destroy the last parcel of freedom left. Is that what you want? If it is, at least have the courage to say so. Don’t pretend to be looking out for the little guy and the under-represented. You are not.

That little girl that was raped and Hillary laughed about was one of them, the under- represented I mean….

Needed to take a break so I went to my local watering hole to relax…as soon as I walked in the owner could not wait to try to egg me on with the comments about Trumps latest. So I asked her if she had heard the audio of Hillary laughing about the young girl that got raped and the man she defended against the charges and she had not even heard about it. So much for the unbiased reporting of the liberal media.

When I made her aware of it, go figure, she did not want to talk about it anymore. See this is the problem. You people know exactly who Hillary Clinton is and you still want her. Sorry but that is about as fucked up as you can get. You people are truly as sick as they get but you do not think you are. This is what scares me most of all. To hear you say it you are the enlightened ones and, as Bill Clinton put it, I am just a Redneck although I was born and raised in the Northeast…Bwwwaaahahaha!

What really sucks is that as you destroy yourselves you are going to take many others with you. You are sociopaths and think you are sane. If you would only get off the meds for a minute or two you might realize how twisted your brains have become but that would require a moment of clarity that you are all incapable of.

So after I return home I happened to catch a portion of an episode of Empire’ Let’s see…what was it about? oh just Lucius Lyons’ wife getting her vajayjay licked by the UPS guy to make her husband jealous and you are offended by Trump? oh so sorry there goes that locker room talk again. One of the most popular shows on TV glorifies the slut like actions of some people and you think Trump is the problem.

You people live your lives like it is a TV show with no regard for the fact that real people are at the other end of your actions. Please make no mistake, the writers of this show would not deliver that content if that was not what you wanted to watch.

People really need to wake up and smell the coffee. We live in a very sick society that has no respect for integrity or common decency and then feigns outrage when someone points it out and all because they told the truth.

Worse is the 47% that wants even more of it.

Here We Go Again

Miss UniverseSo this time it is something Donald Trump said 11 years ago and everyone is upset at the language he used. Notice though that no one has stated that what he said is untrue…no just how he said it. You may not like the language but he spoke the truth.

The fact is that women allow themselves to be objectified and it would not happen if they did not allow it to. Remember there are no victims, only volunteers.

The fact is that celebrities do have different standards and get away with more. So do professional athletes, rock stars and people with a lot of money, not to mention politicians. You can feign outrage all you want but please tell me the last time a movie star went to jail for excessive drinking or drug use. Let’s leave Lindsey Lohan out of it as it was finally like the tenth time she got caught that she paid a consequence and didn’t they release her early cause the jail was too full?

How about Adrian Peterson, the running back for the Minnesota Vikings. Please show me a poor black guy in Harlem that ever even got his kid back after doing what Mr. Peterson did to his son. Or how about Hillary? Think you would ever get out of jail if you stored state secrets on your private server in your basement?

I could go on all day with example after example. Here’s my point, if women want to stop being objectified then they need to stop throwing their bras and panties at every man who is either a rock star, athlete, movie star or rich!

Here is a little reality check. Women actually control everything. We only act that way because you allow it. Please introduce me to the woman that would not get naked in an instant for George Clooney. Mother Theresa would have banged the guy. For gods sake will people ever get honest?

I remember when I was much younger and dancing ballet. I was pretty good and certainly better than most and every girl I danced with wanted me. In fact, I found out years later that there were girls that had crushes on me that I was not even aware of. As I got older I learned that money has much the same effect as an aphrodisiac to women. So what did I do? I of course set about making as much money as I could! Fact, if that was not what many of you are all about then I would not have been motivated to pursue that goal.

Think I am lying or being sexist? Okay let’s again look at the facts. How many women get a boob job because they had breast cancer and needed reconstructive surgery vs how many women get a boob job just cause they want bigger tits? Why can’t those women just be happy with what the good lord gave them? And what are men to think of the women that do this? You objectify yourselves and then get mad at the men who honor your choice!

Another example? How about the latino girl that was Miss Universe. Did it ever once occur to her that she was objectifying herself just competing in a beauty pageant? Obviously not and yet 20 years later she is pissed because Trump told her she was getting fat. Your whole premise for existence was based on how you looked and then when someone points out that you no longer look like the “Brand” you get pissed. Why? You allowed yourself to be bribed into strutting around in a bikini with your ass and tits hanging out and the carrot that was dangled was a scholarship and notoriety and you were all in! Yet no one is supposed to call you out on that. Really?

Women, allow a man to tell you the truth for once, not many do. Most men are motivated by one thing and one thing only and that thing is sex. Period! Any man that tells you different is a liar. Believe me most of us wish this was not the case but it is a scientific fact. We have much more of this thing called testosterone than women do and it causes us a great deal of problems.

Point is everything else we do whether it be the pursuit of money or accolades or fame is all for just one thing. To get laid! Now most men will not tell you that because the truth decreases our chances of getting laid! So we feign outrage when men like Trump tell the truth. Women do the same thing in reverse. They will say things like money does not matter to them, that is until you run out of money and then they say things like…wait for it…baby this isn’t working for me anymore.

Now I can hear the women reading this screaching not all women are like that. True enough but many if not most are.  It has been my experience that the prettier you are the worse you are. Again men will not tell you that because that won’t get you laid.

Let’s get back to men for a second. Ladies do you really think men go to the beach to play in the water? Bwwaaaahhhhh….hahahaha. Holy smokes! Really? How many guys do you see at the beach that are there doing beach stuff vs how many men are at the beach flexing, strutting and checking out women in bikini’s?

Most of us, unlike politicians, have not spent our entire lives watching what we say and do and the fact is that we as human beings say and do some pretty dumb stuff sometimes. Many of you reading will make the assumption that I am misogynistic, sexist and have a foul mouth. That’s okay too but I would suggest that before you try to clean up my side of the street you clean up your side first.

To women, if you do not want to be treated that way then stop acting that way. Period! How many of you incensed women out there had dreams of dating the quarterback in high school. Not because he was the nicest guy cause usually jocks are douches but because he was the quarterback. The sooner you realize that you have trained us to be this way the sooner you can train us differently!


Do You Want A Revolution?

Hillary ClintonI am going to go on a bit of a rant today. I am sitting in Tulsa, OK at the Tulsa State Fair and this is the question that I keep asking myself. The answer is…wait for it…you must. You being the Hil Liars of the world.

Supposedly incomes are up 5.2% as of the latest figures. Sounds pretty good right? Oh but yet again the devil is in the details. What our fearless leaders have decided, to massage the numbers, is to double count withdrawals of retirement funds as income even though that was counted as income 30 years ago.

Now I could have told you incomes are not up as I actually own my own business and so when people are making less money they tend to spend less money and my business goes down. So how bad are things really? Well let me tell you my business is off over 50% this year!

Now you could make the excuse that I am just a horrible businessman but apparently everyone else is too because I speak with other vendors and their business is down about the same percentage. You could also say this event just had a bad year but this has been the case at every event we have done in 2016.

The simple fact is that people are broke. By the time they are done paying rent, healthcare, food and gas there is nothing left. Period! And so it should come as no surprise to you that I am sick and tired of paying for other peoples free stuff.

Yes I am talking about illegal immigrants that get Medicaid, Welfare, Food Stamps, Free Education and the like and all at my expense! I am one of the deplorables’ that is tired of paying for shit that I can’t even get for myself. I am also talking about people that are fully ambulatory and yet seem to think they don’t have to work to pay their way. And of course the government has told them they don’t have to by simply giving them free stuff.

I am so tired of people telling me there are no jobs out in the marketplace. This is pure bullsh@* and it needs to stop. You may not want to do the jobs that are out there but their are jobs. I have, in my career mopped floors, scrubbed toilets, waited tables, delivered pizza’s, been a stockbroker and run several of my own businesses.

I am not an educated man in the sense of a college degree, hell I never even finished high school and yet somehow I have managed to make my way in this world without ever having to ask for a hand out from the government. Please tell me what your excuse is? Realizing that that is all it is, an excuse!

Here’s the thing, people like me are tired of paying for people like you. Pretty soon we are going to stop entirely and then what will you do. I will be so bold as to tell you exactly what my plan is.

If Hillary gets elected I am going completely off the books. I will no longer contribute to a corrupt system. I have paid my fair share and have nothing to show for it except disgust in my heart. When people like me. the Producers are gone what will you do?

Do you really think the reason large businesses have left this country is because they would rather do business overseas? News Flash, they are leaving because they can not afford to do business here. You people hate the producers! We are the scum of the earth until it is payday.

You people that think it is okay to go to work and spend half your day on Facebook and then wonder why you don’t get a raise. Let me tell you why. Because of your lack of productivity it now takes at least two people to do the work of what one person could do twenty years ago. Worse, that is counting the increased productivity from automation. So the next time you think you deserve more money how about you start doing your job first! How about when I go to McDonalds you get my order correct the first time so I don’t have to come in the store and complain, wasting more of my time!

Add to that the ridiculous tax burden you put on business and you have the makings of a revolt. This revolt though will not come with guns. People like me will just go away. Good luck finding a job then!

Many of you that read this are probably thinking, good and go away. You won’t be thinking that when we leave. Who will employ you? Who will write your check?

You people think the producers need you and can not survive without you. There lies the flaw in your thinking. We do not need you and never did. We have always known how to survive and take care of ourselves. Can you say the same for yourself?

It really is time to get honest. People like myself have been biting our tongues for many years while you fiddled while Rome burned. It is time for some cold hard truths.

Many of you reading this will get your panties in a bunch because I used some foul language and keep saying You People. Yes you people who have never produced a thing in your life, that are only able to survive because people like me created the foundation for you. You people that think everything is free and if you don’t get it then life is not fair. Then you take it anyway even though you have not earned it. You people that are more concerned with how it looks or sounds than how it actually is.

It is absolutely disgusting and yet you think you are the enlightened ones. Hah! You will find out soon enough just how stupid and irresponsible you are. Then when everything has completely gone to hell you will want us to return but it will be too late.

The thing is we will start over because we know how to create something from nothing. Can you say the same thing? I think we all know the answer to that. In case you are still delusional you will be able to test that theory very soon for yourselves.

The fact is that even if Donald Trump gets elected President things are still going to blow up. The point is that he knows how to rebuild and will be able to rally the producers to help. Please tell me what Hillary has ever built in her life? Other than a house of lies and corruption.

You people are going to get exactly what you asked for and boy will you be shocked. Who is going to pay for all of it when people like me are gone? You? Have you ever paid for anything in your life? Have you ever built anything in your life?

Worst of all is that you know your arguments are all lies. That is why you believe in “Freedom of Speech” until it is the other persons turn to talk, as witnessed by Tim Keanes’ performance the other night in the Vice Presidential debate! You think you will just keep stealing from the producers and we will just take it. I am here to tell you times are a changin”.

We have no issue with the opposing point of view. What we take issue with is that the math does not work and if any of you actually knew how to do math anymore without a calculator you would know that too! Just go back to that same McDonalds and watch the person try to give you change when the register freezes and see the “deer in the headlights” look and you will not argue with my last comment!

I realize I am generalizing a bit but there is something fundamentally wrong with the way many people think when they have decided that a person with zero integrity is the person they want to hold the highest office in the land. You should be ashamed of yourselves and you will be ashamed of yourselves when it all comes crashing down. Don’t say you were not warned. You have been and called us deplorable and irredeemable as your way of thanking us!

So in closing, you will probably get what you asked for and I hope you enjoy the fruits of your lack of labor.

A Revolution is Coming

Hillary ClintonHouston, we have a problem. At least half of the citizen’s of this country have had enough of the B.S. The other half think things are just ducky and we should expand current policies. Half the country can not take one more minute of political correctness and the other half applaud it. Half the country can not take another second of the lies and the other half want to canonize the most pathological liar of all. Half the country thinks we need to come together as one and grow together and half the country thinks we need further separation among us, you can see it in the way they promote racism.

I think we know which camp I belong to and I apparently do not understand. It must be my intelligence which according to Hillary is limited. As of last night I am now Deplorable, Xenophobic and Racist. Sadly Hillary left out Misogynistic. Always my personal favorite.

I have to be honest. I am thoroughly disgusted with what I see in this country. We are more concerned with the plight of illegal aliens that commit violent crimes in this country than we are for the victims of those crimes. Then we are called racist and xenophobic when we point this out. When we tell the people on food stamps and other government programs that you are being held captive we are called racist. When we argue against the idea of “Big Government” being able to solve all our problems we are called stupid and uneducated.

The thing that astounds me is that just the tiny amount of “Socialism” we have implemented has had disastrous outcomes in our society and yet it appears that half our country thinks the real problem is that we are just not doing enough. Make no mistake programs like food stamps, welfare, medicare, Obamacare are all “Socialist” programs. They all reward people for being non-productive. It is quite simply a redistribution of wealth. The are many of us that are sick of it.

I believe the thing that would shock most is how many of the people stuck “in the system” realize they were played for suckers. They realize they have willingly played the role of “victim” and it has not turned out well for them. Why do you think there are so many violent crimes in the “Welfare” neighborhoods? Is that racist or fact? Problem is they may not be quite ready to admit it. I think if Mr. Trump can really communicate this message then he has a real chance of winning those dissatisfied voters.

I believe the real message needs to be this. It is not about white or black or latino or any of the small ideas that come from pitting one against the other. The real message is what do you believe in your heart. If you truly believe in your heart that things are better under Democratic leadership then by all means continue to vote Democrat. But…if you vote for Donald Trump you are not voting for a politician. He is running Republican because that is the only way he was going to be able to maintain the race for the White House.

Mr. Trump really is the voice of the people. He is echoing the anger of the people at what we have become. I believe he wants to lift all people up. As an example, he wants to repatriate some 2.7 Trillion of corporate dollars that are sitting off shore. To do this he will let the money return “Tax-Free” with the stipulation that 10 percent of the money be spent in “Economic Empowerment Zones”, read “low income” neighborhoods. That would equate to 270 Billion to rebuild and employ these American’s. To hear the liberals tell it he is giving corporate America a free ride when in fact they would be giving a straight 10 percent to make this happen. Plus the rest of that money flooding into the country would lift all boats.

Another example would be his plan for education. Mr. Trump thinks you should be able to go to the school of your choice. Obviously people would choose the schools with the best teachers and the schools that suck would disappear, along with the bad teachers. Of course the liberals oppose this because they are in the palm of the hand of the teacher’s unions.

In addition liberals want to keep people uneducated. I know it sounds sick but uneducated people are incapable of critical thinking. By education I am not talking about PHD’s, I mean the basics. Remember the 3 R’s, reading, riting and rithmetic? (Misspelling on purpose or maybe I am just as dumb as Hillary says I am.) Do you realize that nationally over a third of our young population is not prepared for college. If you go to the low income neighborhoods that percentage goes up dramatically.

We defend our homes with locks, fences and walls but for some reason we are Xenophobic if we suggest we defend our country the same way. We are Islamophobic if we suggest that it may not be the wisest thing to allow people who actively fight against what America stands for to enter our country.

The bottom line, as I see it, is that if Donald Trump is not elected there will be a revolution in this country. It may not happen the day after the election but sooner than later the liberals will realize the only way to get what they want is to institute martial law and that is when average American’s will finally say no more and then look out below.

Let’s face facts, we already know the stock market is rigged and propped up with fake money. If you and I did what the FED does we would go to jail for forgery. We already know the liberals have virtually bankrupted the richest nation in history. If you and I tried to run our financials the way our government has we would have filed bankruptcy quite some time ago. Of course we can not print money out of thin air. We already know the government elite are completely corrupt. If we did what Hillary and Obama have done we would be in jail for a very long time. All it is going to take is another financial disaster and the shit will hit the fan. At that point, finally, the people who have supported these regimes will show themselves for how hopeless they really are and just how dishonest they really are. This is why the progressive liberals resort to name calling and insulting people that do not agree with them. We are called ignorant and deplorable, Xenophobic, Islamophobic, Racist et al…Notice they never actually discuss the issues. They just start calling people names that do not see it the way they do.

They talk about having open communication and are all for it until it is the opposing views turn to speak. Then it turns to name calling. Why do they not discuss the issues? Simple. They know they have no leg to stand on so they try to distract and pit people against each other. They disregard logic and go for the emotional response and then accuse the other of doing exactly the same thing.

This is why they will not improve the education system. If you educate people better it is harder to appeal to the emotional response. If people do not understand basic math they can not be expected to think logically. Uh-oh there I go being racist again.

See this is the problem. Any time you attack the issue the progressive liberals attack the person. There is no way to win and that is exactly how they want it to be. I think they underestimate just how fed up some people are with this behavior.

Hopefully the election will turn out with Trump as the winner. If not, I fear, the resulting chaos will turn violent.

It’s Not About Me!

Donald Trump 2016This is the message Donald Trump must hammer home. I have heard him say that a few times but then he focuses on himself. I get it but the press is already trying to make it all about him, he needs to make it about the ideal. About America.

This election is not about Mr. Trump or Hillary Clinton. This election is about whether we leave America a democracy for the next generation or do we want a socialist society?

Before you answer that question consider the effects of Socialism everywhere else it has been tried and failed.

This is the part I just do not get. It’s not like the Progressive’s and/or Socialist’s can point to this record of success, where country after country that has tried it is now a bastion of success. In fact, quite the opposite is true and yet there is at least half our population that apparently thinks it will work…this time.

They can never seem to tell you why it will work but they assure you it will. My experience is that time after time the Progressive’s never seem to be able to explain the math. Perhaps that is why they want to make it about Donald Trump.

This is exactly why “The Donald” must stick to the ideal. The idea of what America is or could be and what we can become. It is our choice. Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are secondary to the bigger choice. You must explain to people exactly what it means to have 4 more years of current policies, let alone decades when it comes to the choice of Supreme Court Justices.

The Progressives claim this is Fear Politics. It is reality politics, not fear. The Progressives want everything to be free. Listen, whether that is Hillary or Bernie, that is the ultimate goal. Arguing about how fast we get there is a bit disingenuous.

Yet this is what they do. The paint this Pollyanna scenario, where we pay for all or part, depending on who you talk to, of college with no real details on how to make the math work. Pay for everyone’s healthcare and yet the system they put in place sees costs rising by 10-40% annually.

To hear them tell it things are great, the market is at new highs, unemployment is 4.9%, doesn’t get much better than that. Until, of course, you look into the numbers and then the picture is a bit different. Seems that’s always the case with the Liberals.

Turns out that more than 70% of the run up in stocks is due to corporate buybacks of stock. This courtesy of the Fed that gave away free money for the last 8 years. Much of that money wound up in the hands of big corporations. It became much easier for them to increase earnings per share just by buying back their own stock than it was to grow earnings through increase in business. What happens when the Fed finally takes away the punch bowl?

It’s the same for Unemployment. The real unemployment rate is estimated to be somewhere between 10-20%, depending on who you ask, not 4.9%. This in an economy that is supposedly humming right along? Question, what happens when things get bad?

As things continue to deteriorate economically do not expect the violence to subside. It will only get worse. When people lose the power to choose they tend to lash out. When you do not have full pockets you’re choices are, most assuredly, more limited. If the Progressive’s really wanted to decrease violence they should focus more on prosperity for all. Not give-aways but rather real prosperity.

The Progressive’s will tell you that lying to achieve the greater good is okay. The problem is that they are not lying to protect state secrets. They lie to protect their incompetence or to protect their secret.

Let’s face it, the Progressive’s will have you believe only one of two possible scenario’s. One, either they are so incompetent that they do not know what ransom is, they do not understand what Classified means and big government fix anything, even if they have to mortgage the next 100 years. Two, they are doing this on purpose to destroy the United States. These are their arguments, not mine.

So our choices are either rank stupidity or treason. Ironically enough these are the exact things they state about Donald Trump. Funny how the Libs always do that. They accuse the opposition of exactly the thing they are doing.

Think about it. The Progressive’s are accusing Donald Trump of those two scenarios. He is either stupid and treasonous or he will destroy the United States. Yet the track record for these behaviors is all on the Progressive side and specifically Barrack Obama And Hillary Clinton.

Donald Trump needs to stick to the issues. He also needs to explain to people that it does not matter whether you like him or not. It matters what you want our country to look like when you are sitting on the porch with your grand-children and children.

We are totally off in the wrong direction and if we do not get back on track quickly the road will continue to narrow.

It is clear the opposition does not want to talk about these things. They want to know whether Milania’s Green Card was issued properly. Really? Apparently they are concerned about illegal immigrants after all. Not the illegals getting free school, Medicaid, food stamps, not the sanctuary cities or the criminal’s….no…no…no, a woman who immigrated to this country almost 20 years ago and did it legally. This is how absurd this has become.

This is not an election about Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. It truly is about an ideal. Do we really want to become so pathetic and petty that just to get our way we will say and do whatever it takes or is integrity going to have any part in the conversation?

That is what this election is about. Integrity. Integrity for economics. Integrity for our security. Integrity for our selves. Freedom comes with a price and that price is integrity. That is why the Progressives try to undermine integrity. They know that without it there can be no freedom.

Mr. Trump, stop talking about yourself, love your story but stop. Talk instead about integrity. Integrity of service and how the opposition is attempting to make this a non-issue and you will win!



Are We Really This Dumb?

We Must Be Stupid!

Obama Ransom Iran

I really think it is time to ask ourselves this question, especially since it seems the current administration seems to be testing the limits of reason.

In case you missed it yesterday President Obama essentially, in his condescending tone, said anybody who thinks we paid a ransom for hostages is a boob! I know those were not his exact words but that was the general idea.

Let’s review, In January you announce that as part of the Iranian Nuclear Deal we are going to return money to Iran that was seized when the Shah was deposed, what like 40 years ago. I am no fan of that deal but a deal is a deal and so far so good. Then we come to find out that 400 million of that money is going to be made in a cash payment in foreign currency, in the dead of night, and that some of it will probably be used for terrorism against us, ala Josh Earnest. Really. Oh and we find out about this almost 8 months after the fact. Then you say we told you.

It all would have worked but for one thing. You forgot to tell the Pastor your plan….Bwaahahahaha. Turns out the good Pastor stated that he was told by the Iranians with the hostages at the airport that, “You will not leave until the other plane arrives”. What other plane? Oh, you mean the private jet that was carrying 400 million dollars worth of Euro’s and Swiss Francs? That’s not a ransom?

Please Mr. President. We all know…really. Even your staunchest supporters do not believe the string of lies. Oh, they will never say that but nobody is stupid enough to believe this fantasy. I think you know that but that is what is scariest of all.

You don’t care whether we believe it. The mentality seems to be you can do whatever you want and there is nothing we can do about it.

I watched Josh Earnest in a news conference and then President Obama in a news conference. At times, in both conference’s, it seemed like they were both laughing. Not out loud, but in their expressions and body language.

I put these two video’s up of the statements made at both new conference’s and I swear to god, it looked like Josh was ready to bust a gut while he was selling his narrative and of course, Mr Obama’s attitude was, oohhh now you are being silly. What ransom?

The same attitude was portrayed when questioned on Donald Trump’s accusation that the election could be rigged. Mr Obama’s response….you silly wabbit. The proper response would have been much different, especially considering the fact that the Democratic nomination was clearly biased towards Hillary Clinton. I seem to recall Bernie being laughed out of the room when he made the same allegations towards the DNC. Are we beginning to see a pattern here?

I would love to play poker with Mr. Obama. This guy is the player that thinks every hand he holds is 4 of a kind or a Royal Flush.

The proper response to Mr Trump’s accusation’s would have sounded more like this.

While I am not a fan of Mr. Trump, these are very serious allegations and no candidate should have to be concerned with rigged elections and we will make sure there is complete transparency in the process so no unethical behaviors will be able to hide in the shadows.

This is the type of response you give when you are being sincere. Ridiculing the other party is a defensive posture and the type of response you give when you are not being, at the least full disclosure and at worst outright lying.

Media is in the Pocket of the Elitists

By the way, many in the press are using words like misleading to describe the conduct of the current administration and Hillary Clinton. We need to start telling the truth. They are lying. Plain and simple. Worse the mainstream media co-signs their BS.

I have yet to hear one reporter ask the question, “are we really supposed to believe this non-sense?

I mean, c’mon guys after what was heard yesterday you would think one reporter would have had the balls to stand up and cry “How stupid do you think American’s are?” These guys make a bigger deal out of whether a baseball player is taking steroids than they do on whether we are paying ransom for hostages! Are you kidding me?

I always think of a scene from a movie, also a broadway stage play, called “The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas”. It has been many years but it has stuck with me. It is a scene where the sheriff is exposed as a con man and he is doing this little “Shuffle Dance” as the reporters and people chase him around and he is laughing and singing about how funny it all is and how smart he is and how stupid they all are.

The Mantra of the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton seems to be “Die with the Lie”. They will never actually reveal the truth even though we already know it. It is as if, until they say it out loud, we are all just fools for the taking.

Now the attitude of “Die with the Lie” is pretty fun to watch on “Christly Knows Best” but when I see it coming from the leaders of our nation it is disgusting to watch. On “Christly Knows Best” it is a couple of young kids and a pompous, albeit rich, dad saying these things and mostly harmless.

Mr. President we are talking about Nuclear deals and hostages and ransoms here, not how the car got dented! Hillary we are talking about state secrets and “Pay to Play” issues here, not where I was on Friday night when I was supposed to be home. Get it?

Has anyone considered that Mr. Obama is the “Inside Guy” for Radical Islam? It would make a great movie script. The President of the United States turns out to be the inside man in a plot to destroy the United States. All the while telling everyone he is the champion for the United States. Here is the not so funny reality. It’s not a movie.

The only way the things Mr. Obama does make sense is if you flip your thinking. Instead of asking yourself what you would do to make the United States a better place, ask yourself what would you do if you wanted to destroy this country?

Now take a look at what the Obama administration has done and look at what they are doing. Now look at what Hillary wants to continue to do. Pretty scary right? Oh, that’s just conspiracy theories cry the masses. Is it?

I do not believe in coincidences. This administration and Mrs. Clinton would have you believe that all of these things are just coincidences. Again I ask, Just how stupid do you think people really are? or are you just counting on the apathy of the masses?


Better The Devil You Know

Than The Devil You Don’t?

Hillary Clinton

I was somewhat surprised yesterday when talking to a business acquaintance. During the conversation he mentioned that Hillary was his best choice for President. For those of you following my blog, I have made no secret of my lack of understanding of why this is what many people want. So again, I started asking questions, as I am want to do.

What he told me was very enlightening. His basic opinion was better the devil you know than the devil you don’t. That feeling go me to thinking and I began to look at how this mentality is effecting daily life and not just politics and voting decisions.

When I think about this my mind naturally moves to business and how I earn a living. What I am seeing is, to be frank, a little disturbing. Bottom line is people just Fear change.

The business I am in, List Building, I believe is a very strong barometer of how people are feeling and I can tell you many are feeling very scared. What puzzles me is just how powerful fear can be. It literally paralyzes people into doing nothing.

The reason I get puzzled is that if you do nothing then nothing changes and yet that is why most people join one of my lists. They are looking for change…but they are also very afraid of it. The thing many do not grapple with is the reality that doing “Nothing” is doing something it just is not very productive.

Think of it this way. If you continue to do the same things you have always done you will continue to get the same results. Failure is part of building your own business. Do not let anyone tell you otherwise. If they do they are lying to you and move in the opposite direction.

I have failed many times in my life. I can tell you it is humiliating, it hurts, sometimes you may even cry but you will survive. More important is that if you stick to it you  will succeed. Remember it is almost never the most talented that rise to the top but rather the person that wants it most.

I also feel that part of the problem is that we can get discouraged. After getting beaten up a few times it gets harder to get up. But you must! If you do not keep trying then you will never achieve your personal dreams.

I am almost 52 years old and have been working at this my whole life. I started with nothing but my own ingenuity and a belief in the “American Dream”. I know that may sound a little hokey, especially in this day and age, but it is the truth.

I have made a ton of mistakes, personally and professionally. Most of the bad choices came from a decision made from a position of fear.

If you have been following my blog you will see what appears to be a contradiction as I have implied that I do not struggle with fear. What I should have said was that I no longer struggle with fear. It was not always that way.

I think what changed for me was that I finally got to the point, after many failures and many survivals, that I knew I would “live to fight another day”. So now if I am struggling with a scary proposition I ask myself “What would I do if I was not afraid?” and that is the choice I make. I may have several different choices I can make and it still might not work the way I hoped it would…but and this is a big but…I increase my odds dramatically for success if I make my choices from a position of strength.

I encourage you to adopt this as your Mantra. I may make the difference for you.

Let’s face it, their are many things to be concerned about as you grow your business but the things that seem to paralyze us have more to do with Ego and the fear of it being bruised. Get used to it. :)

Think about it. What are the thoughts that run through your head? What if I fail? What will my friends think, those same friends that said it will never work? What will my spouse think? The same spouse that shakes their head every time you try “One of these things”. The list goes on and on but you get the point.

The game is played between our ears. Yes there is some actual work involved but the thing that will get you to the finish line is your mental toughness. You must understand that these other voices are just as afraid as you are. As such, their advise and council may not be what you should be paying attention to.

You must accept that failure is the opposite of success, two sides of the same coin. You can not have one without the other.

This fear of failure and fear of change is what is driving this election cycle. Very many people love the candor of Donald Trump. They know if he is President things will change dramatically. What holds them back is that they have a fear of the unknown. This is the same fear that keeps you from taking chances in business.

Fact. If you knew for sure that if you invested your time and energy into a business that would make you $10,000.00 per month every month but it would take two years to do it, how much would you invest in that business? Especially if after 2 years you knew you never had to work again for that money.

See this is it in a nutshell. The problem is you won’t know if you have found the right opportunity until you try it. Some things work for some people and some things work for others. You have to try it to see if it fits you.

I mean really, what else do you have to do? Being a “Serial Free Position Person” get’s you nowhere. How is it working out so far? You have got to put your money where your mouth is.

You say I don’t have any money to put. Fair enough, but if you keep doing what you are doing you never will! You may have to rob from Peter to pay Paul for a minute and if it does not work then you try again. Keep doing that and sooner or later you will have your dreams, the road may just get a bit bumpy along the way.

I also believe we tend to focus more on outcomes than the journey. Learn from your failures and keep going, there will be high points too.

I think it is also important to point that out in this election. Learn from our failures! Washington has been doing things the way they do them for a long time and how is that working out for us? As uncomfortable as that may be, change we must or perish we will.

Make no mistake the longer we resist change the shorter our lives are. Even if you breath for a hundred years are you really living if everything you do is based on fear?

Think about it.

To your success,



Burnin’ Down The House

Obama Caught Again

Obama 2016

I gotta’ tell you it just doesn’t get any better than this. Just when you think you’ve heard it all, along comes President Obama with another scandal. Since when do we pay ransom to terrorists to release hostages. And if it is not ransom how come this money transfer happened under cover of darkness. I didn’t know the banks stayed open that late. Oh that’s right it was cash…oops!

The current powers that be are so corrupt they don’t even try to cover their tracks anymore. I swear to god it is like having a conversation with a six year old. You know what I am talking about, the one where you find your kid standing on the kitchen counter, reaching into the cookie jar on top of the cabinets, chocolate covering his mouth and you ask “what are you doing?”, he says “nothing” and you say “Why do you have chocolate on your mouth?” he says, “I don’t know”. You press and say “tell the truth” and he says “they did it too”, pointing at their brother or sister!

This response from the administration that says, Donald Trump is “unfit to be President”…Am I on Candid Camera? I feel like sooner or later the host of the show is going to come out and show me the camera and tell me I’ve been punked and it was all just for fun, to see my reaction.

Donald Trump Will Burn Down The House

Get ready! The simple fact is that daily we see that the house is infested with termites. It can not be saved. The termites have eaten through the frame and if we don’t tear it down it will collapse on us.

Sorry folks. No we can’t live in it anymore. If we would have fixed the termite problem 10 or 15 years ago the house may have been saved but now…not so much. This is not a “Bad Thing”, unless you are a termite. Yes it will cost us to rebuild but…

Aren’t you tired of living in a house that when you come home you have to worry whether or not the roof is going to cave in?

Don’t you want to live in a nice new house with no termites?

This is why we need Trump! He knows how to build stuff and not just any stuff but really, really nice stuff.

No…No…I hear you but it is the whole house that has to go. Not just the Democratic side of the house but the Republican side too. Yes we will be able to reuse some of the wood but most of it has to go. It is too compromised.

As a country we need to face some cold hard truths. First of those and the most dire is we are broke. Previous people running the show have mortgaged the next 3 generations to live in the style they wanted. They did not stop to consider whether this was fair or not. They just did it and now we have to be accountable to it and make the necessary changes to fix it.

No more excuses and lies. Mr. Obama likes to talk about how well the economy is doing and points to the stock market trading at record highs as an example. This may be the worst of the smoke and mirrors. Were it not for public companies buying back their own stock with the free money the Fed has made available….no not for us, just for the people and companies that matter, the stock market would be no where near record highs. As a matter of fact the market would probably be trading at half the price it is currently trading. Some experts argue that 70 percent of the run up from the financial crisis lows has been due to corporations buying their own stocks. Not improved earnings but financial engineering has led to new highs in the market.

It is the same type of financial shenanigan’s that our fearless leaders use to convince you we are not in as much debt as we are. They will admit to almost 19 Trillion which by the way is more than 100% of what we produce every year as a nation but that is just the tip of the iceberg.

What they fail to mention is the other 200 Trillion in debt that they are carrying off the books in the form of IOU’s to Social Security and Medicare so the real number is about 10 times more than they admit.

For most, these numbers are just too big to comprehend so allow me to take the liberty of bringing them down to size. Imagine you make 50,000.00 per year and you are carrying 500 thousand dollars, a half a million, in debt. Could you pay it? Let’s do the math. Let’s assume all of the half million is 30 year debt like a mortgage. Just the principal payment on that debt would be around 30 thousand of your 50 thousand earnings. Add in what it would cost for interest, at least another 10 thousand per year and now you are at 40 of your 50 thousand gone. That leaves you 10 thousand dollars for the year to live on or around 850 dollars per month or less than 200 dollars per week for food and everything else. Could you do it? Right!

So if you can’t do it how does the government? Two words, Printing Press. If you and I do what the government does they call it forgery or in the case of Social Security a Ponzi Scheme and we go to jail. However if you are the US government you call it business as usual.

See that’s the thing, the Progressives tell you that is just the way it works. News Flash, that’s not how it works. They had the luxury of disassembling a country and a way of life that was incredibly strong. So for many years while companies and governments cooked their books we could withstand it and things did not look so bad. Now…well again I ask you, how strong would you feel if you could not pay your bills every month?, and make no mistake without that printing press that is exactly where we would be.

So here’s the thing, do you want to burn down the house and start over or do you want the house to collapse on your head? The first option gives you control of the outcome, while still messy at least you control it. The second option leaves you totally out of control and yet will still be messy and your skull will get crushed when one of those rotten beams hits you smack between the eyes. It really is that bad!

If you open your mind you can learn a lot from Donald Trump. In my opinion the most important thing to learn is when to cut your losses. Because we have become a nation that no longer understands that things ebb and flow we can no longer deal with a downturn in the economy. If we would have let the chips fall where they may during the financial crisis then the excesses would have been wrung out of the system. Instead we doubled down on a bad bet and now look where we are.

In case you’re wondering just where we are, we have a government that is completely corrupt with excess. In every action they take they express their contempt for common sense and you have businesses cooking their books in the form of stock buybacks propping up a sick stock market.

This can not last and in my opinion it is completely irresponsible to continue to bury our collective heads in the sand. I mean how much lower can we go? Our leaders have decided that it is okay to pay ransom to terrorist nations. If that does not disgust you I don’t know what will and then, perhaps, we deserve the house to fall on our heads.

I encourage all of you to read “Atlas Shrugged”. Written back in the 1950′s by Ayn Rand it documents the decline and fall of the American empire. Twenty-five years ago, when I first read this book, I estimated we were about two-thirds through the book on our journey. I estimate we are now about seven-eighths through. Please read how it ends. It’s a good news, bad news scenario. Again bad if you are a termite. Good if you build things.

It is time to decide which side of history you want to be on. Do you want to help rebuild or do you want to continue to eat what’s left of the house?
