California

        I occasionally hear rumors about California wanting to secede from the union.  That would be great.  Don’t get me wrong, California has wonderful weather and is a nice place to visit, but we could still visit if it was not part of the United States.
        It would be so nice if California could secede and be an independent country.  Just think about it.  California votes as liberal, progressive socialists anyway and they could all be in sync.  California would be a liberal paradise.  They could name Barrack Hussein Obama king and Michele Obama queen.  Hilary Clinton could be the chief law enforcement officer.  Who knows more about deep state government corruption and cover-up than Hillary?  It would be a fight between Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, and Dianne Feinstein for court jester.  Which one is the bigger joke?
        The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals would be the perfect legal system for the Country of California.  They rule for partisan progressive ideas with no regard for the law, and would no longer have the U.S. Supreme Court overturning their decisions. 
        The Democratic Party of California could actually formulate an agenda beyond the anti-Trump agenda they have now.  Trying to oppose, discredit, and remove President Trump from office seems to be their only platform currently.  
        It would also be so nice to get rid of all the Hollywood celebrities that continually stick they nose into politics with little or no knowledge.  Some of these celebrities promised to leave the country if Trump was elected President.  I wish they would keep their word and leave.  
        I have to laugh at the Hollywood Me Too movement.  I agree that rape, sexual assault, and sexual harassment are wrong, but Hollywood leading the movement is hypocritical.  Jokes about the casting couch are older than I am.  It’s not like everyone in Hollywood didn’t know about and accept this behavior.   
        California could promote their liberal open boarder agenda with no opposition.  And, if anyone did object, they could accuse them of being racist or sexist just as they do now when the facts don’t support their agenda. 
        What a utopia it would be for about a year until California went bankrupt and their government had to start confiscating private property.  There would be no federal government to bail them out.
        California could attempt to join Canada if Oregon and Washington would secede too.  Canada might take Oregon and Washington, but Canada is too smart to take California
        California could try to join Mexico.  All the illegal immigrants in California that refuse to learn English and fly the Mexican flag would love that, but Mexico doesn’t want them back.  They got rid of these immigrants and don’t want to have to support them.
        This blog was written with tongue in cheek, but unfortunately there is a lot of truth in it.

God bless President Trump and guide him to make America great again.

Accountability

Son  says, "Dad, I'm considering a career in organized crime."  

The father asks, "Government or private sector."

This blog is not about Democrats and Republicans.  It is about crime and punishment.
In the private sector the saying is “Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time.”  That is apparently not true for the government sector.  
The public seemed to have accepted the fact that politicians lie, but we now see that the corruption goes way past that and extends to non-elected bureaucrats too.  I am critical of our federal government, but I had no idea how widespread the corruption was. 
Elected officials and bureaucrats live as if they’re above the law with the possible exception of sexual indiscretions.  Even these were overlooked in the past as with President Clinton.  Now any accusation about sex can be a problem.  
My concern is with felonies committed against this country, the destroying of evidence, and the cover-ups.  A top level bureaucrat can commit a crime and is only demoted or allowed to retire with full benefits.  This is not justice.  People must be held accountable.  
Appointed bureaucrats are allowed to destroy evidence with no consequences.  How can someone be allowed to delete and Bleach Bit 30,000 emails after they had been subpoenaed and not be held accountable?  What crimes did these e-mails reveal to be that important? 
Top officials of the FBI, DOJ, and IRS ignore or delay providing requested information to Congress.  These agencies have to be held accountable.  They can’t be allowed to run amuck with their own political and financial agendas.  If they are not held accountable, this great republic will not survive.  
Attorney General Eric Holder refused to release documents to Congress and was held in Contempt of Congress.  He has never been held accountable.  He should be in jail. 
Hilary Clinton leaked classified documents, destroyed evidence, and lied to Congress and has never been held accountable.  To the contrary, she was rewarded by being nominated to run for President on the Democratic ticket.   
The current leaders of the FBI and DOJ are refusing, or delaying releasing documents to Congress.  After six months of delay, it is safe to assume these documents have been sanitized to hide any crimes committed by the agencies.  
New investigations have been started to look into the Clinton e-mails, the Clinton foundation, and Uranium One.  Some people say that because Hillary lost we should just forget about it.  I don’t agree.  That is not justice.   
People have told me that Hilary and other top government officials will never be prosecuted anyway, so why waste the money on investigations.  I agree that is the most likely outcome, but again, I don’t agree.  That is not justice.  People must go to jail in order to take the power away from the DC swamp.  Government has to serve the people with equal justice for all.  
We The People must demand our government servants be held to a higher standard and not be above the law.  This disgust with Washington DC is a big reason why President Trump was elected.  Government criminals must not be given a pass.  
God bless President Trump and guide him to make America great again.

Businesses Fail

“Why do businesses fail?” is the title of chapter six in my book, Business Fits.   Here are some of the highlights from that chapter. 
The number one reason businesses and especially new start-ups fail is under-capitalization.  If you’re starting a business from scratch everything takes longer and costs more than you expect.
I give an example in the book of how quickly increasing sales in my Ford-Mercury dealership almost broke it.  Growth is not always good. 
The second leading cause of business failure is the lack of a proven business system.  People often start or buy a business with no plan.  They think they are going to learn as they go.  Think again;  It doesn’t work that way.
The new entrepreneur often makes the mistake of getting so excited about his emotional perception of the demand for a product or service that he ignores the business system.  The new entrepreneur may also ignore what role they must play in the business to be successful. 
Poor management is the third leading cause of failure.  Every business must have marketing and management.  A business can have the best business system in the industry, but if management doesn’t implement the system, it will fail.
A lot of other factors contribute to a business failing.  One of the major reasons is divorce.  A divorce can mean dividing assets, which may mean putting the business in a position of under-capitalization.  The business may have to be liquidated.
There are many other factors including changes in the market, changes in the competition, a bad location, changes in traffic patterns, economic changes, changes in government regulations and more.   Proper planning can prepare for these changes.
Franchise operations fail less often and for different reasons.  A good franchisor will not award a franchise to someone who is under-capitalized.  A good franchise will have a proven business system, but the franchisee must follow the system.  Not following the system is probably the second most frequent reason for a franchise failing.  I have seen that  the number one reason for a franchise failing is divorce.
All of these issues and many more are covered in my book, Business Fits.  http://BusinessFits.com

Please note, I have only addressed private sector businesses.  Government and especially our federal government don’t have to operate efficiently or at a profit.  Federal agencies are seldom as efficient or productive as the private sector.  They have unlimited resources.  Historically the federal government just increases the debt and taxes on the working middle class to stay solvent.  It is time for a change.

God bless President Trump and guide him to make America great again.
