We Know We Can Do It Better.

 

I’ve always wondered that myself. If we want to go back to the Moon, we have the BLUEPRINTS to do so! One or two manned missions… knock out a few scientific errands, tie up a few computational loose ends, snap a few selfies, then call it a day.

It almost seems like a wasted opportunity not to do some location scouting, while we work on a machine that can be used as a reliable workhorse for establishing a permanent human presence on the Moon.

 

“It’s the way in which the WORLD has moved on since the engineers first created those F1 engines.”

Every piece of that machine was HAND CRAFTED, custom fit, built to order. A one-of-a-kind that could not be replicated TODAY… the skills and knowledge of the process, now LOST to the passage of TIME.

 

Still one of the most powerful rocket engines ever made. Still one of the greatest engineering accomplishments of human history. 400,000 people, years of planning and design, trial and error, countless hours manufacturing each part… the Saturn V stands as a testament to the ingenuity of the American People.

 

 

“… because engineers can do just about anything.”

5,600 individual pieces, hand crafted, precision welded by skilled American Engineers.

Now, with the knowledge gained over half a century, aided by computer assisted design…

… we can build it with only 40 pieces.

 

“It’s sometimes easier to redesign something from SCRATCH, than it is to try and remake the PAST.”

 

… 

 

 

 

 

At some point it becomes detrimental to hold on to the past simply out of nostalgia. Even the Space Shuttle, as amazing as it was, began to show its age by the end of its service.

Once the cracks have been found, turning a blind eye to potential danger is unacceptable… especially when we know we can do it BETTER.

Is THIS the way we want it to continue to BE? Beyond 2021… is THIS the government we choose to empower? Does THIS represent the Will of the American People?

 

The PEOPLE deserve a THIRD OPTION on the debate stage this fall. A candidate who represents their agendas and their responsibilities.

With your help… I would be HONORED to be that candidate.

… to Overcome.

 

A successful investor like Warren Buffet is successful because he invests in the things he uses, the things he enjoys. There is no big secret… there is no magic wand or crystal ball. At its core, it’s basic common sense. The KEY is having the confidence to ACT when the timing is right.

But even Mr. Buffet knows… there is no “I” in team. An organization is only as good as the people you surround yourself with, and their input shapes the decision making process as well. A good team not only reinforces good ideas, they also expand the field of view and provide insight into areas previously unknown. A good team also tells their leader when they are WRONG, and they demand only the BEST LEADERSHIP for their endeavors…

Meaning a good team must have core ideals that NEVER BEND.

What… like Hitler?”

No. We know where that leads… we’ve seen that message before. Whether it be a religious institution or a corporation, a king or a president; those organizations that STAND the test of time are STRONG at their foundation. Because they stand in the RIGHT. Not just factually or authoritatively…

 

Because they stand FOR what’s right.

 

And this is what makes OURS the greatest! That SIMPLICITY… the well-thought, endlessly debated, constantly remade and amended, beauty and simplicity…

That we are ALL created equal, and entitled to be judged equally in the eyes of the law. Without favor due to family ties; and without the prejudices of race, religion, or creed. In this moment, we are judged by our ACTIONS. What we defend is what will define us. Our actions will declare to the world what THE PEOPLE of the United States want this nation to BE.


Today we write our HISTORY. Today marks our beginning… let us celebrate in remembrance OF what was, instead of mourning what might have been.

Let no crime go unpunished, but not to make punishment the ends that we seek. What punishment exists that could surpass what we already face…

For this crime of INACTION we’ve been sentenced to CONFINEMENT with nothing but TIME on our hands, in a penitentiary of the mind. Once we’ve paid this debt to society and we begin our rehabilitation, we must decide… what will we create? What will we deem ‘worthy’ of being pulled up from the ashes, in this hour… as so many of us fight to survive?

 

DIVISION is our enemy.

 

Not some NATION, not some VIRUS. As we fight amongst ourselves, the other nations of this world CARRY ON… with or without the United States.

The answers we seek will be found once we UNITE in-support of OURSELVES. The Moral Compass that guides the heart of every American points TRUE. In every instance over the course of the last 200 years, inevitably… we’ve found our way.

The MAJORITY of this nation STILL STANDS united in SPIRIT and in PRINCIPLE; and when the majority of this nation stands united in common cause… Continents remain FREE. Viruses are eradicated.

 

Democracies are SECURED.

 

There is no problem THE PEOPLE of the United States cannot SOLVE.

The Choice is Always OURS

My son asked me the other day, “What happens if the Dow Jones falls to Zero?”

 

um… brain BROKE.

 

What WOULD happen… COULD it happen? Zero would mean NO work was happening, no profits being made. In theory, it could never happen. Someone has to pump the oil, turn on the waterfall at the power plant, milk the cow BEFORE sunrise… so, what happens?

 

The Dow Jones Industrial Average has always been just a “rule of thumb” about how things are going in America. It’s never been a solid indicator of our economic strength. In large part, the “BOOM” witnessed from the Obama Administration through the Trump Administration has been theoretical… speculative. A huge amount of that financial growth comes from the Baby Boom generation and the DECADES of investments they’ve made saving for retirement.

If the growth was theoretical, in the form of interest and gains from investments, how does losing that detract from the value of the overall economic engine, the physical infrastructure, and the personnel that maintains and operates it?

 

What is the “American Dollar”… what is our economy BASED upon? It’s the hopes and dreams of a child. Promises made and placed on the back of the wings of a butterfly…

 

The economic strength and security of the WORLD is backed by the BLOOD, SWEAT, and TEARS of every citizen of the United States of America.

 

 

US_one_dollar_bill_obverse_series_2009

 

And as long as we still BELIEVE in the promise of ONE NATION UNDER GOD, then we will HONOR the value inherent in every dollar we print. That is what we give to the WORLD, and what we gain is a bigger market and a stronger community for all of us to live in.

The economic security we’ve created is NOT by accident. It is the product of trial and error, science and speculation, and lessons learned from knowledge received. Standing behind the portrait of George Washington is the face of every American Citizen. Should he FALL, behind him stands ANOTHER. And in every transaction made, on every continent, in every corner of the globe,

The WORD of the American People is HONORED as the standard, and is accepted as such no matter where you go.

 

It’s not because of the INK.

It’s not because of the paper.

It’s not even the promise of GOLD or SILVER that could come from it.

It’s the words written within our CONSTITUTION, and the value we place in it.

 

In this moment, when we are asked to bring our economic output to ZERO, when the choice we face is truly LIFE or DEATH, we are failing to meet our challenge. This is not being asked of us out of GREED. We are asked to do this out of CHARITY, for the benefit of our neighbors… and ourselves.

We must listen to our hearts and act as we know we should. To do what’s right for our COUNTRY. It is a challenge that we MUST meet, and anyone who attempts to push us in another direction is NOT advocating for the health and safety of ALL Americans… as our elected leaders should.

 

Our Nation was once given a promise, of rebuilding a Union from the ashes of War. With malice toward none and charity for all he wrote, and we were once again, ready to be made WHOLE.

That promise was STOLEN from us, that vision never came to BE. What could have been was left to our imagination, and the consequences of that day still reverberate in every corner of our society… following us where ever we go across the globe.

Today, we face a new struggle. Testing once again if ours is a Nation that can stand the test of time. It is a battle that stretches throughout Human History, and a fight that afflicts ALL MANKIND.

 

Right now, the markets have de-coupled from our economic activities. How they move in this moment is NOT a reflection of our nation’s economic strength, it’s a reflection of our government’s ability to LEAD. Based on historical data points, created by previous actions taken under similar circumstances; the rise and fall of the numbers tells us what the markets PREDICT will come, based on those actions within historical contexts…

If we do what has been done BEFORE, we will continue to see the SAME RESULTS.

 

Trust in the DATA… it cannot lie. Only the people who interpret the data can do that.

With confidence in yourself, believe in your ability to spot the LIES. Our best defense is a good bullshit detector… and an overabundance of CAUTION never hurts as well!

 

With charity for ALL… because we’ve ALL been lied to. Be sparing with your BLAME and HUMBLE in the light of knowledge, as the MAJORITY of us still have much to learn. Arm yourselves with knowledge and demand accountability for those who would continue to celebrate ignorance, even when presented with overwhelming evidence and are fully informed.

“Governor Rejects State Lockdown”- Jackson Free Press (03/23/2020)

 

Educate them NOW… SAVE LIVES.

And if they continue to dispute the numbers, and willfully do not act… then the tally of the dead will educate us this fall when we VOTE.

 

STAND UP and SPEAK OUT!

 

Let everyone know exactly where you STAND! The line is drawn. CLEARLY… let there be NO DOUBT! We must do what is necessary to SURVIVE, and that means going AGAINST what we’ve been taught. (Once again we find ourselves through the looking glass. When libraries reopen, don’t look for it in the fiction section. It’s now been permanently relocated under reference… but I am confident, we will find our way!)

 

 

The self-made billionaire President, who went bankrupt multiple times and wrote off a billion dollars in LOSSES on his taxes, calls an emergency aid package a “stimulus”, implying we must BOOST our productivity. Still focused on economic growth, when what’s prescribed is CONTAINMENT.

 

To suggest anything OTHER than what is necessary for the survival of the PEOPLE of the United States of America should be seen as an affront to us ALL.

 

In the spirit of the season, of renewal and rebirth, we’ve been asked to sacrifice of ourselves, only for the promise of what might BE. With malice toward none and charity for ALL, let us fulfill the promise and ensure the vision of our Founders is affirmed.

 

ONE CITIZEN=ONE VOTE 

 

When every citizen has guaranteed access to the ballot and every election is FUNDED in the SUNLIGHT, by the tax payers… we cannot begin to imagine what the future will bring! A restoration of our faith in the Rule of Law, born from the wellspring of our Union… envisioned by a new generation of infinite possibilities.

 

We, The People of these UNITED States… decide, and the choice is ALWAYS OURS.

Let us guarantee that for ALL TIME, and ensure this can NEVER happen again.

 

We must End the Electoral College.

Let This Be Our Finest Hour

Ours is not a monarchy, but we entrust our President with immense power. Each piece of our Federalist Puzzle acts independently of the others, yet they are at their BEST when they act in-concert. We despise socialism, decry anything that even smells like it, but we know… charity has always been our strongest suit.

 

The Federal Government of the United States has entrusted to us more than TWO TRILLION DOLLARS, to mothball our economy and support each other as we fight this battle. The Government must pick some winners as a matter of National Security, but the rest is up to us.

 

Today we must choose our destiny.

 

We must decide what we will create for our children. Will we act based on emotion, blindly running away from danger? Or will we act with KNOWLEDGE, and turn our eyes toward the future. We must work to lay out a solid foundation… and ensure this can NEVER happen again.

The sickness has always been there… it’s just taken a PANDEMIC for us to fully SEE it.

Months of inaction… months of misinformation. Months of insider trading and months of delusion… Time lost. Opportunities now GONE… and this is only the FIRST WEEK of a 30 day shutdown in Kansas City.

 

… since January 24th.

 

They’ve asked us to give up so much. Our progress… our future… our security… and they repay us by focusing on ‘Small Businesses’ as they call them: The Airline Industry, The Cruise Ship Industry, and the Real Estate Industry… BOY! That sounds like one hell of a payday for anyone named TRUMP… and every Senator who is subservient to him.

“How a McConnell-backed effort to lift Russian sanctions boosted a Kentucky project”- The Washington Post (08/13/2019)

 

 

To the Congregations of Faith across this Great Nation-

Your faith is needed in this hour! Stay home and PRAY… but also, take ACTION if you can. DONATE to your local food pantry. GIVE all that you can if you have that ability, because SO many of us will now be in need.

Science and knowledge are the gifts we have been given, so that we might begin to understand… and we are to use these gifts as best as we are able, given the limited sight with which we were born. IN UNION, we’ve pledged our fates and fortunes! We must shepherd the weak in this hour, as we are ALL but men… and inaction will surely cost us more lives.

 

 

Our dependence on technology and our need for a clean and reliable energy source to power it, will only GROW because of this experience. My endocrinologist recently told me that insulin pumps in the next five years will be as reliable and accurate as my pancreas used to be. So much so that insurance companies will start requiring them in order to limit the complications caused by diabetes.

And now, we’ll become more dependent on teleconferencing to diagnose sickness, to educate our children, to communicate with loved ones trapped in another city, or summon first responders. All dependent on electricity and a stable high-speed internet connection. If you don’t have either one of those, you are now unable to participate in our society.

 

Will we allow this to become another tool of oppression… another discriminating factor used to keep others out? Or will we ensure it is a necessity, a vital utility that must be accessible to ALL Americans? A RIGHT, protected and secured by our United States Government.

To be clear… we must be CLEAR! We must define exactly what we want our future to BE. The Top-Down economic policies of the last 107 years have brought us to this point. The stability envisioned by creating our Federal Reserve is now being artificially manipulated by individuals who only want to gain INSIGHT… to have KNOWLEDGE of the future that others do not.

 

So that they might profit off of the misfortune of others. 

 

Two trillion dollars, unchecked and mismanaged, will only further that agenda if we do nothing about it.

 

 

In the blink of an eye, roughly ONE THIRD of our nation is now unemployed. Restaurants, bars, fast food… every commercial kitchen across the country has now been hollowed out, out of necessity. To prevent unnecessary loss of life.

With adequate foresight into the current situation, we could have PREPARED ourselves for this and made the transition seamlessly. Instead, we’ve upended families and taken them away from their HOMES. A decade of hard work spent recovering from the LAST recession, slowly fading away… it must NOT be so.

 

Take advantage of every lifeline the Congress is making available to us in this hour, and HOLD THE LINE. If your home loan is backed by the Federal Government, you cannot be evicted… HOLD THE LINE. Money is coming, though it’s not as much as they will be giving to Boeing… take it, and do all that you can, and HOLD THE LINE.

 

Defeat the virus, and then defeat FEAR and DIVISION. Our Nation’s economy is STRONG when the people have money to SPEND… and when people have money to spend, they can take care of the people they LOVE.

It is not the job of our Government to take care of the people, it’s the job of our Government to make sure everyone has an EQUAL OPPORTUNITY to take care of themselves.

 

 

 

In this hour, it is our DUTY to protect and defend our Constitution from those who seek to kick us while we’re down, as we fight for our lives… as our attention is turned somewhere else.

No, it’s NOT the first time. BULLIES are as they’ve always been. It’s nothing new. We know who they are… and we know how to defeat them.

 

STAND UP and SPEAK OUT!

 

When you STAND UP and defend the rights of others… you protect those rights for yourself.

 

HOLD THE LINE until NOVEMBER!
