Vice President

          Kamala Harris is the current Vice President of the United States of America.  Below is a quote from her on 02/16/2021.  The left wing “fact checkers” say it is not true, but what would you expect from the biggest spreaders of disinformation in the history of our country?  They told us that the Russia hoax was true and that Hunter Biden’s laptop was Russian disinformation.

 

“The United States government cannot continue to pay for every need of what has become a special class of citizen.  Veterans are equal to us, not better than.  Veterans Affairs coddles them.  It creates a dependency on us which is not doing these former solders any good.  They need to learn to live on their own and be responsible adults.  The easiest way to assist them is to cut them off.”

 

        Kamala went on to say the money could be used to help illegal immigrants.  This is insane.

        Joe Biden is undeniably the worst President in the history of the country.  He clearly does not have the mental capacity to be President, but I hope he hangs on as Kamala would be even worse.

        The next in line would be House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.  Biden is not capable of forming a coherent sentence, but listen to Harris and Pelosi.  They can’t either. 


We must fight for fair elections and take control back from the DC establishment and Deep State.  These are the first steps to take back this country.

Business Fits Introduction

          If you expect me to describe to you the perfect business that cannot fail, forget it; there is no such thing.  No single business fits every person’s goals and talents.  No business fits in every geographic area.  No business fits every individual’s financial resources.

        There are many reasons for owning your own business.  The most common is to just control your own destiny.  Maybe you just want to create a job for yourself. Some of you are just looking for an investment.  A few of you want to build a business empire.  There are hundreds of other reasons.  I hope this book can help you find the right option to meet your individual goals.

        Some of you think you already know the direction you want to go and are just looking for help in certain areas.  For example, you may want to turn a hobby into a full-time business and are just looking for financing. 

        You are now tempted to read only the chapters on independent start-up businesses and financing.  Please don’t make this mistake.  Read the entire book,  You don’t know what you don’t know.  You may discover that an independent start-up business does not meet your goals.

        Starting a business can be frustrating and expensive.  I started a business in 1984.  I worked out of my home.  I had attorneys, accountants, and bank trust officers all working pro bono.  I put in some long hours.  Once I worked thirty-six hours straight to complete some financial projections. 

        Late into the hours of a particularly frustrating night, jotted down my thoughts.  The next morning, I typed them up and sent them to Entrepreneur Magazine.  Entrepreneur published “An Entrepreneur’s Thoughts” in the February 1985 edition.

Money Laundering

        Laundering money is a crime, and it is a crime that promotes other crime.  If you deposit $10,000 or more in a bank account, the bank reports it to the government.  When I was in the collector car business, some clients would buy cars as an investment.  Some were only interested in cars under $10,000.  It was obvious they were going to pay in cash and did not want the government to know about the transaction. 

        The IRS wants to add 87,000 more agents, and they want to arm them.  The IRS will be coming after you, and they will not limit their investigations to transactions of over $10,000.  

        Criminals like drug cartels and Islamic terrorists deal in large amounts of cash.  The problem is that money is of little value as cash.  A drug cartel may have a bundle of $100 bills the size of a hay bail, but it is not spendable like that.  It has to be laundered.

        What do you think should happen to people that launder money for drug cartels and Islamic terrorists?  They are committing a crime that aids crimes that kill hundreds.  I think life in prison or the death penalty sounds reasonable.  How about you?

        HSBC bank is a large international bank.  It is the largest in Europe and has offices in the US.  In 2012 HSBC Bank in the US plead guilty to laundering money for drug cartels and Islamic terrorists.

        The bank paid a fine of $1.9 billion to the US government.  Part of the plea deal was that no one involved with this crime would be prosecuted.   It was just not right to condone a crime against humanity like this.  

        Who were these criminals?  Some of them were Cheryl Mills, Sandy Berger, Lorretta Lynch, James Comey, and Robert Mueller.  That’s right.  They all are part of the Obama/Clinton corrupt deep state establishment. 

        These people should have been incarcerated for life, but instead went on to powerful positions in government. How could this happen?  Why was it not the lead story for every newspaper an TV network in the country?  

         

We must fight for fair elections and take control back from the DC establishment and Deep State.  These are the first steps to take back this country.

Dedication

           My dedication for my book Business Fits:

This book is dedicated to all the small farmers and the small town business owners that played a huge part in making this country great.  Unfortunately, they are both disappearing.

 

          I was raised on a farm in northwest Iowa.  The average farm was 160 acres or a quarter section.  This meant there were four farmsteads on every section of land.  Many of these farms provided a living for a traditional family consisting of a husband, wife, and two or more children. 

        Farms were diverse to provide a consistent living with changing markets and prices.  Crops included corn, soy beans, oats, hay, and pasture.  Most farmers raised cows, pigs, and chickens.  Large gardens and orchards provided much of the family’s food.  These farms produced food. 

        The small town merchants supplied the goods and services the farmers needed. They were productive and filled a need.

        Several things had a high priority for all these people.  They put family, God, and country first.  Education was high on the list for their children, and the quality of education was very good. 

        Honesty was very important.  A person’s word was very important.  A person’s word meant more than a written contract in many cases. 

        My Father farmed the land I was raised on for sixteen years.  There was a written agreement with the land owner the first year.  The next fifteen were done on a handshake.

        People had a strong work ethic.  They did not look to the government for a handout.  The poor, disabled, and handicapped were taken care of locally.  There was alcohol and drunks, but very little drugs or crime compared to today.

        I feel so lucky to have grown up in this time period.  It was a great time to be a kid.  Now entire sections of farm land do not have a single building.  As population decreases, businesses close, and small towns die.  We have lost an important part of our society.

        Too many people get rich in today’s society without ever producing anything.  The stock market makes many people rich, but produces nothing. 

        We have 5% of the world’s population and 70% of the world’s attorneys.  Many never produce a service or product with any value.

        Teacher’s unions no longer put the children first.  Kids are indoctrinated instead of educated.  Small fortunes are spent on four-year college degrees that are totally worthless, and then graduates that do not have the skills to make a living want the government to pay off their loans.

        The federal government has grown totally out of control, and is inefficient at best.  Most of their regulations hamper rather than help or assist business.  Welfare and give-a-ways increase with hope of buying votes.  Politicians that produce nothing become millionaires.    

 

“No society ever thrived because it had a large and growing class of parasites living off those who produce.”  Thomas Sowell

 

We must fight for fair elections and take control back from the DC establishment and Deep State.  These are the first steps to take back this country.

Amendment IV

 Amendment IV

          The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

 

        This amendment is part of what is normally referred to as the Bill of Rights.  The founding Fathers knew how they been treated by the British and wanted to protect this God given right.  It is very clear and easy to understand. 

 

        Now let’s take a look at the Search Warrant used to raid Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home:

Property to be seized

C. Any government and/or Presidential Records created between January 20, 2017 and Januar4y 20, 2020. as well as any other containers/boxes that are collectively stored or found together with the afore mentioned documents and containers/boxes.

 

          Any literate person of reasonable intelligence can clearly see that this search warrant violates the 4th Amendment and is illegal.  It is simply a fishing exposition to harass Trump.  I don’t care if you are Democrat, Republican, or Independent; you have to be appalled by this type of government over-reach and corruption.

 

        The affidavit for the warrant to raid Trump’s home has been released.  Over half of it has been redacted.  This cover-up proves that the search warrant was in violation of the 4th Amendment and should be prosecuted as a felony,

        What are we going to do about the corrupt politicization of the FBI and DOJ?  This can’t be allowed to continue if our Constitutional republic is going to survive.

 

 

We must fight for fair elections and take control back from the DC establishment and Deep State.  These are the first steps to take back this country.

How DO You Make Money?

I am only going to address legal ways to make money.  I will not discuss either private or public organized crime.  The private sector could involve jail time which is not attractive.   In the public sector, we have too many people going to Congress as paupers and leaving as millionaires. 

There are five ways a business makes money. 

1.  With a special skill or talent. 

If you are a medical doctor or surgeon, people come to you.  Some other special skills might be; veterinarians, land surveyors, lobbyists, and in some cases lawyers.  Congratulations if you fall into any of these groups. 

2.  Having money to invest. 

Many of us have money invested in a savings account, stocks, bonds, or a 401K, but it does not generate enough income to live.

If you have enough money, you can invest it wisely in a business and make money.  You may or may not want to be personally involved in the business.  Both options are available

3.  With employees.

If you have enough employees working for you and those employees are efficient in their jobs, you should make money from each employee’s efforts.

Employees may be skilled or unskilled, but in either case you must be able to manage those employees.  Employees are human and do not always do what they should.  Some people cannot manage employees even with a good system. 

4.  Selling.

If you don’t have a lot of money and or employees, you have to be able to sell.  A good sales system can help, but not everyone can sell.  

I have had clients say, “I can sell if it is something I believe in.”  This is a false premise.  Handling rejection is a big part of sales, and when you believe strongly in your product or service, the rejection is even more devastating. 

In reality, most businesses involve some combination of 2, 3, & 4.  Number 1 could still require the other 3. 

Every business has to be marketed.  A good web site or newspaper ad will not do it.  I have seen people spend their money on a great web site without a complete marketing plan to drive potential customers to the site.

 

“How Do You Make Money?” is chapter 5 in my book Business Fits.  More information is available there.

Democrat Party Gestapo

We have never seen the amount of corruption in our federal government that we are witnessing today.  Enough is enough.   

Government agencies have been turned into a political Gestapo for the Left.  All the intelligence agencies have been corrupted, and even others like the IRS.  The IRS is adding 87,000 new agents and arming them.   They are not needed and certainly don’t need to be armed.         

The FBI and Department of Justice are the worst.  There is no excuse for their criminal actions targeting Donald Trump and anyone who supports him while all Democrats go free and their crimes are covered up.  

Trump and Trump supporters have been submitted to raids of their homes, strip searches, and been put in shackles in public arrests.  This has never happened to a Democrat. 

The FBI raid on President Trumps Mar-A-Lago home is a crime in itself.  I hope this is a step too far for the Democrats.  It should wake people up and guarantee the Democrats losing the House and Senate in November.  It may even guarantee Trump’s election in 2024.

Nobody in the history of this country has been investigated more, or had more false claims and lies against him than Donald Trump.  Even after all this he is cleaner than any of the people trying to frame him. 

Our justice system demands people be investigated that are suspected of a crime.  It does not allow investigating people to look for a crime.  This is what has been done with Trump. 

Attorney General Garland says we need to trust the FBI and DOJ to treat everyone equally under the law.  These are the same people that have called parents domestic terrorists.  They have manufactured evidence, altered documents, used illegal surveillance, and lied to the courts and Congress, including the Fisa Court.  They said the Steele dossier was real and Hunter Biden’s laptop was Russian disinformation.  Why should we ever trust them again? 

I used to say that there were only a few politically corrupt people at the top of the FBI and DOJ that needed to be replaced.  The corruption has gone past that now.  Any person that has participated or condoned the political corruption attempting to hurt Donald Trump or his supporters has to be fired and in some cases prosecuted.  “I was just following orders” is no longer an acceptable excuse.  Everyone must be held accountable.  

If we had equal justice, there are many people with clear evidence of crimes that should be in jail.  Nobody should be above the law. They include:  

·       FBI Director, James Comey

·       U.S. Attorney General, Loretta Lynch

·       FBI Deputy Director, Andrew McCabe

·       FBI Deputy Director of Counterintelligence, Peter Strzok

·       FBI attorney, Lisa Page

·       FBI General Counsel, James Baker

·       DOJ Senior Official, Bruce Ohr

·       Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper

·       Director of CIA, John O. Brennan

·       IRS Director, Lois Lerner

·       U.S. Attorney General, Eric H. Holder Jr.

·       National Security Advisor, Susan Rice

·       Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton

·       FBI Director, Christopher Wray

·       Attorney General, Merrick Garland

·       Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden

·       President, Joe Biden

 

        It is about time our justice system does its job. 

 

We must fight for fair elections and take control back from the DC establishment and Deep State.  These are the first steps to take back this country.
