Ronde Barber Will Be Back: Why schools should take pay cuts to avoid tax levies

Ok, I’m happy……………… favorite football team on the face of the planet has managed to secure a 16th season from their future Hall of Famer, Ronde Barber. I was concerned after the Buc’s picked up Eric Wright, that Barber might retire, or that he might not want to play for Greg Schiano who will be Barber’s fourth head coach for the same team over his career. But Ronde has agreed to terms that will allow him to return for a one year deal to help the Buccaneers bring back to life a defense that was epic under the schemes of the great Monte Kiffin.

The offseason moves made by the Glazer family, who own the Bucs have been impressive so far on paper. I think they did the right thing to hire the right kind of guy in Greg Schiano from Rutgers. It is very difficult to walk in the footsteps of coaches like Tony Dungy and Jon Gruden, but the Glazers interviewed a lot of coaches before settling on Schiano. After making that hire they proceeded to hire a completely new coaching staff and picked up some key free agents.

It might seem strange to some who read here every day to understand why I enjoy the Tampa Bay Buccaneers so much. Well, aside from my love of pirates, the Buccaneers have a long history of innovation and thinking outside the box for a sports franchise, and even when they lose, most of the time they are exciting to watch.

The Glazer family operates their franchise from the front of the train. If you read here often you know what I’m talking about. If you don’t, then CLICK HERE to learn what I mean. It is a scary place to be at the front of the train, and sometimes you pick the wrong track, which is what happened when the Buc’s committed so much in Raheem Morris, who was a good coach, but had lost the team halfway through last season. But that doesn’t mean everything Raheem did was bad. He went out and found a lot of good talent, by thinking outside the box, and those players are now gathered in one place. What they lacked was leadership, which Raheem could not bring to the table unfortunately, I think because of his youth.

So the Glazers rather than overreacting from the back of the train and spending a lot of money on a quarterback to save the day, like a Payton Manning, or a Bret Farve type, stuck with their players and decided to invest in leadership instead of players. The Glazers chose to go against the knee jerk reaction of the status quo by throwing players at the wall and hoping they stick and instead found leaders who think at the front of the train.

That kind of ownership is what makes the Tampa Bay Buccaneers a quality organization that I have enjoyed for over two decades now. CLICK HERE TO SEE MY PREVIOUS ARTICLES. That’s the kind of mentality that brought about one of the greatest defenses to ever play football lead by Warren Sapp in the late 90’s, and what I have seen the Glazers trying to duplicate since, without falling into the grove of complacency.

It has been difficult for Tampa Bay to retain their identity after Monte Kiffin left to help coach with his son Lane. But Tampa had to deal with that problem sooner or later, and they have tried to find the right personnel who will help them regain that level of play.

The Bucs have a lot of great young players and statistically, they should be one of the best teams on any football field. But it takes more than just players to achieve greatness. Greatness is more than just throwing and catching footballs. Or running a football. Or stopping someone from doing those things against you. Greatness is in the heart, it’s at the front of the train of thought. It’s in the drive to always become better. And for young players to see greatness, they need to be around it, so they can see what it’s supposed to look like.

In Tampa Bay the Buccaneers organization under the Glazer family has seen many players retire as Buc players, notably, Derrick Brooks, Mike Alstott, and now Ronde Barber, and each of those players late in their careers took pay concessions in order to stay with the Bucs, so the organization could afford to keep them around. Ronde if he really wanted to could most likely double his price on the open free agency market, but Ronde like Brooks and Alstott, even John Lynch before he suffered a serious neck injury and Warren Sapp just before going to the Raiders as a free agent were willing to take significant cuts in pay to stay with the Bucs. This is how so much veteran leadership has been able to stay with Tampa over the years, and why it is such a relief to see that Ronde is going to stay one more year, so that the young Buc players can learn from him.

The people I might sit at the bar in Chili’s with on a Sunday afternoon watching football understand the economics of Ronde’s decision. They also understand that Payton Manning couldn’t stay with the Colts because the price tag to keep Payton was simply too great. Around the bar over beer, nacho’s and cheese dip, people understand that sports teams can’t afford to pay $20 million dollars for a player that might not play a lot and is likely to end up hurt before the end of the season, so they often cut their losses unless the player is willing to take major cuts in pay.

But in the next conversation with the same group of people, they will say that teachers and school administrators should be paid an infinite sum of money never to be capped off. Never to end. They will say that it’s OK for a school system to operate with a top-heavy payroll and that if more money is needed to balance the budget, then taxes should be increased.

Why are people smart about sports, but not about education—or government? I have a lot of theories, but for now it’s just an observation to consider. When I say that a school system, or a public service that charges taxpayers for their service requires more money, I wonder how many of those employees at the top of their pay scale would be willing to do as Ronde Barber has done so he could stay with his team, and take a cut in pay. To help his team out with leadership so he can play another year with the group he has known and loved for years. Or should he betray his fans, and his employers the way Labron James did in Cleveland, and just go for the big money and tell everyone else to go to hell.

One of the reasons I like the Buccaneers as an organization is because of players like Ronde Barber. There is no question as to where his loyalty is, or what his intentions are. And because he is a straight shooter he has a lot of leadership to provide the young talent who need someone to look up to for guidance. It’s too bad that people like Ronde Barber are so few and far between. I can only wish for a world that had more people like him, who put loyalty before a payday, and honor before ease of gain, because if more were like him, it’s likely that the world would be a much better place. School levies wouldn’t be required, politics wouldn’t be so dirty, and people would mean what they say.

But since there aren’t many people like Ronde Barber in the world, I will enjoy the only one I know of on Sunday afternoons as he plays at Raymond James Stadium for one more year, and thank God he is still there. Because someone must pass on the torch, and it’s a veteran like Barber who has the potential to lead a rag-tag team of youngsters into the next decade of domination because it’s leadership that does such things and leadership exists at the front of the train, not in the size of the paycheck.

Clint Eastwood: It’s Halftime in America

Ok, it’s official, this is my favorite Superbowl commercial of 2012. Clint Eastwood on behalf of Chrysler, proclaimed that America isn’t done, that it’s only halftime and there is time to come back and win. I loved the metaphor, and thought it was well said–and stylish.

As for the hate and blame that is going on, I agree. When all the stupid people get out-of-the-way, America can start winning again.

I’m ready, how about you?

The Transcendentalist: Wizard of Lakota and why taxes are evil

The video below is my most recent presentation on why fighting the Lakota School Levy is a worthy cause.

As you are most likely a frequent visitor to this site, you know the rest of what I will say in regard to that video. My opinions on this matter of taxes run deep and have perplexed many. So in an attempt to address the multiple questions I received recently as to my motivations, I will spend the rest of this article going into the deeper reasons as to why more taxes are a sinister proposition at multiple levels. But I will caution you reader that the information here may be difficult to digest, especially at first.

The assumptions as to my political affiliation are robust, and have been for some time. “Are you a Republican, Mr. Hoffman? Surely you are one of these Libertarians if not.” My comment in that they might fathom just a fraction of my position is that I tend to look to Republican’s because they most closely resemble my beliefs in this current Static Pattern of social understanding. I do enjoy the message of Libertarians, but find that their positions on drugs and regulation do not completely reflect my own. I would always favor lack of regulation over regulation of any kind, but I do not believe the free market would work as smoothly as they believe it would because people are lacking a level of spiritualism in their foundations that I think is important to self-regulation, and its missing.

Upon hearing this, my critics automatically assume, “Oh, so you are a devout Christian and the church is your guide.” Again, I cringe in frustration at the necessity the masses have in slapping a label onto someone so they can better understand a concept. It is a weakness left over from our childhoods, where we first learned to read by association and memorization, and those Static Patterns formed over the first 10 years of our lives relied heavily on labeling others to understand the world around us. By the time we are ready for more advanced learning ability puberty hits, and suddenly our minds are filled with an urge to insert our genitals all over a member of the opposite sex, and much of our time is invested in this pursuit. This goes on for many up until the time that they start a family where the mind shifts gear to sacrifice for the young children we have brought into the world, who are starting the process of associated learning from the start, and as parents our minds return to that savage level of understanding to be replayed again through our children. It is these parents who are particularly susceptible to collectivism since their minds are already in a mode of sacrifice biologically as they would put their own lives before their own children. They are easy prey for the liberal looters.

In Ayn Rand’s literary work, which I adore, this is why children are left out of the equation, because it is in the raising of children that selfish impulses are sacrificed to the altruism of a child’s needs. Rand solved the problems of social looting by properly identifying the cause and reactions, but she avoided the impact of family, as dose another of my favorite writers Henry David Thoreau. The adult mind even in this mode of child rearing is still engaged in the biological pursuit of genital appeasement, typically with the opposite sex so the development of greater levels of understanding is put off till some future date.

Many of my current friends are about 30 to 40 years older than I am, because it is during this phase once the body has withered away, and sexual fulfillment is not the primary objective of the adult mind followed by a sense of sacrifice to a child. (I’d put the order of necessity for women the other way around, for men, it is as I listed it) It is these older minds who finally begin to see things as they are, unfortunately death is breathing down the necks of these fine people, so it’s often too little too late. They contributed their share of madness into the fabric of social existence confusing necessity with their biological urges and now in their later years they wish to fix what they helped to wreck through the ignorance of their youth. To my way of thinking, “youth” extends well into the late 50’s of some of these people. Some people don’t get “wise” until their 60’s or 70’s. But most do get there eventually because as the strength of their bodies leaves them, their minds increase to compensate.

My beliefs are that a human being has an obligation to themselves and to society to achieve this level of understanding much, much sooner. They should make love with their women and men in their teens and 20’s, but return back to their books thereafter and not linger aimlessly in drunken splendors. And when they raise children they should not avoid the act of self-sacrifice on behalf of the child or lose the selfish needs of their minds and bodies. The mind needs food after all just like the body needs food and sex, and I believe many people fall into the trap of feeding their bodies, but starve their minds, until their bodies start dying. Then, when it’s too late, they start taking care of their minds because it’s all that’s left.

So be it to say that I am at odds with most everything in society, because I think mankind has placed short-sighted limits on itself. Yet I have not lost touch with where people are in the world and I understand their reluctance. Where Nietzsche went mad by his early forties, and Thoreau was dead by age 44, I see in both men a tendency to question as I have, and feed their minds at an early age. But their mistake is the opposite of the modern neurotic. They sacrificed feeding their bodies to some extent by feeding their minds, leaving them sickly in their middle years proportionally out-of-balance mentally and physically which doesn’t work either.

I have found that balance in my life, and I did it early, and I raised my family around these ideas. It was my daughter who put me onto Henry David Thoreau. “Dad, this guy is just like you. You should read him.”

She wasn’t the first to make such a proclamation. Over the years people would say to me, “You are just like Thoreau.” They seemed astonished when I’d reveal to them that I had never read him, at least until fairly recently, after the encouragement of my daughter. The reason I never gave Thoreau a chance early in my life was because I partially blamed him for the Hippie Movement. It was high school English that taught me that Civil Disobedience was the model of the Civil Rights Movement and it was enjoyed by Ghandi also. Well, I thought Ghandi was a pacifist who should have led India to a violent conquest of his enemies, and this whole starvation thing never made any sense to me. The idea of self-sacrifice for a greater caused always seemed immature. Just as the idea that Christ died on the cross to relieve me of my sins never made sense either. I spotted a long time ago in those Christian studies a series of looters who sought to place themselves between the people and their God as a kind of toll keeper, and they use Jesus, the pacifist as a gate to collect the toll. Thoreau’s Civil Disobedience wreaked all these elements and I refused to read it in high school for that reason, again in college, and in my adult life until my daughter told me my rebellion was misplaced.

In history this wouldn’t be the first time this has happened, where a good message gets lost behind a teacher who attaches their view of collectivism behind an artist who is quite the opposite. The Nazi used the Übermensch idea to justify their tyranny upon the world. (Ubermensch comes from Nietzsche’s Thus Spoke Zarathustra one of my favorite books) The Fabian Socialist George Bernard Shaw in his play Man and Superman written in 1903 also took the idea of the Ubermensch to attempt to formulate in his mind the justification for socialism where the central planners could work in behalf of the “middle class” because it was the supermen who knew better than everyone else. Taint of an original idea is particularly corrosive to minds not prepared to handle it, so returning back to the original concepts is crucial when the tyrants of existence misuse the keys of knowledge with their corrupted desire to loot from the world to fill themselves. This is always the danger. In fact, you have just learned a secret about me. I see this whole Fabian debacle as so epic that I have went back and dusted off the term ubermensch to use as my own focus. That is where the term overman comes from. So revisiting the past to get to an original idea is not uncommon to me and due to my daughter’s coaxing, I gave Thoreau a chance.

It was in reading the book Walden that I felt I was reading some of my own personal notebooks, and I instantly understood why my daughter said what she did. I felt angry that I let a couple of teachers turn me off to Thoreau at an early age by presenting the material in a stale fashion, as they typically do. I felt betrayed in much the same way as I did when I discovered Shakespeare because my wife had given me a collection of his works as a Christmas present.

Without going any deeper into this topic of similarities of thought I must get to the point of this article. The modern terms shaped by the contemporary mind is only a fragment of what it started as. And as American’s dust off their knowledge and revisit the Constitution and the ideas of the Founding Fathers it is useful to study the origins of those thinkers rather than take the word of some modern fool who says and does things so that they might sneak a peek at the undergarments of their superiors, and thus rise in the world with a false interpretation of an ancient text over dinner in Manhattan. Much of modern interpretation is shaped on the pillow of a bed where two heads exchange the juices of sex.

So what do I believe, what is my political affiliation? I am a Transcendentalist. I believe the “middleclass” is an invention of the tyrant types to keep the minds of man occupied with climbing a social ladder which they control, rather than just taking the elevator, which the tyrant does not control. (THE ELEVATOR IS IN YOUR OWN MIND) America is a land of the free, and is intended to reject social classification. For nobody is free if they do not free themselves from the desire to belong to a class, and they are not free if they are limited to a political party or even a religion, a Transcendentalist is open to the truth wherever it comes from and regardless of the pain that knowledge brings.

I believe in self-reliance. I do not wake up in the morning and consider how much work I must do so that others may live off my efforts. My goal of each day is to do as little as possible on behalf of others so that I may have more time for myself. The measure of that comes as such, what is my obligation to my wife, my kids, all our pets, my debts, my taxes and my extended family (parents, siblings, and such)? After all those needs are filled, what do I have for myself in daylight left? To my way of thinking if I have taken care of my obligations before noon and the rest of the day is mine, I am successful. But if my taxes increase and push that time to 1PM or even 2 PM then I have been robbed of my time. And if government expands and asks for another levy, another hired tax collector, bureaucrat or politician, then the risk of attack on my time may push my daily freedom to 4PM or 5PM.

When most of a day is consumed in this way, I consider those thieves who stole that time from me to have committed a crime. They took something from me that wasn’t theirs. Because it’s my goal to go the other way, I wish in my life to reduce my daily obligations from noon, to 11PM, and eventually down to 9AM. To be successful in life by my view if I woke up in the morning at 5 AM and had fulfilled my obligations by 8 AM I would consider myself incredibly successful as a human being, and I have admiration for anybody who lives as such. This is why I make it a point to wake up early and go to be late. Because the time for myself is something I treasure incredibly, I have never been bored in my life, or contemplated what to do next as if waiting for something to happen, only what to do among the infinite possibilities.

But I have no tolerance for looters who wish to steal my day away because they lack comprehension and their education has utterly failed them in complete totality. The looters of life seek to wake up at 9 AM and take from me my labor so that they can pay off their debts which are committed to midnight. They purchase their time for themselves at my expense. They may work from 9AM till 11AM but are too tired and collectively rely on their social brothers and sisters to supplement the rest of their day over the next 13 hours by the looted accumulation of my labor. To the looter’s mind and the Fabian Socialist, the Marxist, the liberal, the progressive, the labor union, they think it’s appropriate to force me to work till 5 PM, the same time that they will complete their obligations. But it is they who indebted themselves till midnight and it is their irresponsibility which is the point of contention which created the need for my stolen time to save them from their own toil.

I do not consider the making of money to prop up my opportunities for social recognition which translate to sexual opportunities. I am married, when I want sex, I tell my wife, and then I return back to my books. I do not work hard to have a car which impresses my peers. I ride a motorcycle all year, even in the rain and snow so that I can have adventure, and lessen the cost obligation daily, so that I may have more freedom of my day at less cost. I do it for freedom, so my work load is fulfilled quicker in the day. I do not seek to hob-knob with the powerful in the palaces of power and at dinner parties so that I may prop up my social status. I do that on occasion for my work, but I do not do it for leisure because it takes away my freedom daily. I’ll take the hot dog over the steak if it earns for me 15 minutes more of freedom each day. The work is part of my obligation, but once fulfilled each day; I want my time to belong to me.

I do not wish to carry on my back the poor. My knowledge of them is that they chose to be poor. I offered a poor man a job once, and he turned me down in favor of begging. I know the poor; he was not the only one, but the one I most often think of. They think like the political looters who seek to make me feel guilty and give away hours of my day to them in exchange for a lack of guilt. But if I free myself of that guilt, I do not feel compelled to give them my time, for we both have two arms, two legs and a brain. I can make use of my time for my resources, and they can to. If everyone thought about their time the way I do, the world would be pretty much fixed. For in my daily plans I did not say that I would wake up at 5 AM and own my day starting then. I am aware that I must give some of my day to somebody who relies on me, so it is my task to become more efficient in what I can produce in the fewest hours so that the remainder of that time is mine.

Government, all government lacks this understanding. Even some of my friends who are Republicans are just now learning that the golf games, the nice dinners, and the homes all over the world are nice, but if they run your work into the late night hours to have them, are actually chains of servitude. And even among my friends I have seen a tendency when this debt is realized to steal the time from someone else to recover their loss. Politicians are notorious for this. Most of them being narcissistic by nature anyway and are confused concoctions of human flesh struggling to fill their bodies with food and sex and their poor minds get almost no development during their political careers. This makes them highly inefficient thinkers which translate to legislation and other policies which seek to seduce away the hours of our days to balance the budgets of their errors. God knows they won’t pay for their own mistakes, so they steal from others to cover their debts.

So what is my political affiliation? Well, it doesn’t exist in the contemporary. It exists in the past that I might make use of it in the future. I do not seek to rewrite the works of Nietzsche or Thoreau, but to incorporate them into my own observations like men around a campfire might exchange stories. But the looter, men like George Bernard Shaw, and Hitler, they seek to erase the name of Nietzsche and Thoreau from the original ideas, and change a few sentences here and a few there to suit their purpose then use those classics as a way to steal time from their fellow citizens in a pursuit to fill their bellies with food, and bring attention to their genitals and to do it with as little of their own time invested.

The goal of the tyrant is to sleep as long as they want and to go to bed at their leisure but to never be responsible for their commitments. They simply steal it from others. And Tyrants are not always in the largest positions among the most politically active. Most of the time they come from those whom we trust most, who carry the innocent expression, as the role of the tyrant is not necessarily to kill its enemies. It is to simply steal away our time in a battle that is invisible to our naked eyes, but leaves its impression upon our souls daily.

For it is more than just being tired that you feel at the end of a hard day of work when you turn on the television to have the mindless programming message your senses with something new and less mundane. It is the knowledge that it is 7PM and your day is still not your own, and you are tired and wish to go to bed soon. Your body may be satisfied from food, and sex, but your mind wants to be free and soon you will be asleep and you’ve given it nothing, and it protests as you seek to drown it with the noise from the television. And that is when you wonder why you voted to tax yourself more, because you didn’t have the guts to say no, when the hand of a looter extended into your vision asking you to bail them out from their chosen servitude, you obliged committing yourself to 24 hours of the day to everyone but yourself.
And to me, that is no way to live, and it’s not what America was intended to be. Freedom is more than words in a Constitution, or the amount of money you have in the bank. It’s a state of mind that requires food daily to live and survive the stress of modern interpretation.

Attack Watch: Brought to you by Dictator Obama

One of the great things about Glenn Beck is that he’s spent the money he’s made off his books, his subscriptions, and his shows and reinvested it back into the message he’s been committed to. You won’t find Glenn Beck running around with some stripper in a New York hotel, or find that he has used any of his money to abuse anybody in society. Regardless of whatever mistakes he may have made in the past, I sincerely believe the person he is today is a good person who just wants the truth, the same as me, and millions of other Americans who simply don’t like the progressive direction of our country.

When Glenn Beck launched his new GBTV network I wasn’t sure what to make of it. So far what I’ve seen I like a lot. I am very impressed with the $20 million dollar set he built, and better yet, he has no boss, no middleman to steer his topics into the “collective” direction of an editor or even a network owner. Glenn Beck is the owner and he has used his success to purchase his freedom from the grid of politics and he is truly free in a way that few people ever achieve to function authentically, and to use his gift of insight for all it’s worth.

A sign that Beck is achieving that success can be seen in President Obama’s new Attack Watch website, which I find disgusting, but also revealing, for it shows just how juvenile politicians as high-ranking as The President of the United States truly is. Listen to Beck discuss it from the set of his new show, totally free of any editorial censoring, which I believe has triggered this move by the president and his staff.

After I saw this episode with Beck I checked out the website for myself and the very first thing that came to my mind was the way that East Berlin used to engage in similar propaganda to prevent its people from trying to escape over into West Berlin. Obama is actively looking for dissidents to his administration so those dissidents can be targeted. Of course people like Beck will be targeted, but as I read the intent of that website it became clear that the goal of Attack Watch wasn’t so much after Glenn Beck, but it’s intended to target people like me and the material I publish on this site, which I stand behind proudly. But the nature of this type of information set my blood into a boil, so I contacted Attack Watch and turned myself in with the note shown below, which is the exact text that I sent to Barack Obama and his minions running Attack Watch.

Dear Attack Watch:

I will have to report myself. I am embarrassed at this administration and his support of public unionized labor. And he has put himself on the front line of Ohio’s Issue 2 and is very responsible for his own attacks and false information. The fact that he supports this site says everything about the guy.


Shortly after I did this I heard that Doc Thompson was covering this very issue on 700 WLW so I called in at about the 11 minute mark and confessed what I had done, that I had turned myself into Attack Watch. Doc and I had some fun at the expense of the President over his Jobs Bill and this tyrannical Attack Watch website, which the President deserves. CLICK TO LISTEN:

The parody that Doc and I were talking about can be seen in it’s entirety below. I am proud to see it produced but sad that the humor of it isn’t too far off from reality. For it is an accurate representation of the mentality of this President. This isn’t a new tactic by would-be-dictators. The Gestapo similarities are undeniable. If the President and his staff wanted to confirm everything “crazy” that critics like Beck have said about him, he just confirmed it with that website.

I would recommend that everyone take the opportunity to turn themselves in to our own American Gestapo by dropping a comment into Attack Watch and let them know what you think about a President who spends an enormous amount of money on theory, big labor support, and massively expanded government built with a theory of altruism that is naïve in its foundations, yet is sold to America with the same fast talking nonsense that we might see from a used car salesman. If I thought the Obama Presidency was a joke before the advent of Attack Watch, I am more convinced of it now than ever. If such a thing had been around during the Bush administration, the progressives would have taken Bush out of office with a posse and a rope. Yet Obama supporters write him a blank check on intelligence, of which they have all shown to be bankrupt, and not worth the paper the check is printed upon. Because this whole experiment has nothing to do with race or even party, it’s all about a massive progressive who believes just like the charismatic tyrant that if you “LOVE” him you’ll vote for anything he says. Well, only a fool does that, and I suspect that anyone who isn’t a fool will end up on the Attack Watch list at some point in time, because this is not the action of a President of a free country. This is the actions of a dictator, and that is the harsh reality.

Now, to make it simple for all those silly people who are willing to feed the Gestapo Dictator of Attack Watch information about me, which I have no doubt will happen, I have listed links to a small sample of the dozens and dozens of articles I have written about this President whom I do not believe is qualified to manage a McDonald’s, let alone a country.  The evidence speaks for itself.

Enjoy……………….and there’s a lot more where that came from.

Why Cincinnati is Failing: My Personal Experience with the CBC

With the recent news that Chiquita is considering a move from Cincinnati to Charlotte, North Carolina, it has left Cincinnati in a state of panic as to why Chiquita or any other business would desire to do such a thing. Doc Thompson covers this issue with Cincinnati Magazine Executive Editor Linda Vaccariello in an illuminating broadcast about what Cincinnati has to offer, then considers why Cincinnati has a problem attracting and keeping business in the city.

Well, I have a bit of experience with doing business in Cincinnati that I’ve touched on before, but this topic lends itself to a bit more detail. Well before there was ever a Paul Brown Stadium or even a Great American Ball Park I was with a group who was trying to win the design for the riverfront development project. In fact, the guy I was with presented a wonderful plan to the city council of Cincinnati of which Dwight Tillery seemed to like, (Dwight was the mayor at the time). The plan included paving over completely the various roads that connect the highway system downtown, and put them underground to connect Cincinnati’s downtown with the riverfront. On that paved-over section would be a grassy park, various restaurants, movie theaters, shopping centers, new stadiums, and a plan for including Longworth Hall as a Historic District connected to everything else which would wrap around to join with Union Terminal. The plan received a rousing applause from the people attending this meeting. I thought at the conclusion that the group I was with would undoubtedly be the lead design team which would head the development of the riverfront development.

After the meeting found it odd that none of the city council members, or the media wanted to speak to anyone from our group, after all, we just had the best presentation without question, but we also didn’t have “formal” relationships with any members of city council. By formal that means “friendly” in the world of politics. I knew every member of council through my work at city hall where a friend of mine and I were at that monstrosity every day trying to get the Cincinnati Building Commission to approve plans for a development we were working on which required a simple change of use on an existing building.

What should have been a simple job, relatively speaking had turned out to be a political nightmare. The CBC seemed more interested in creating work for their friends, who are architects, engineers (to design fire escapes and such) HAVAC installers and all those types of related businesses, then in helping a business get their feet on the ground in the city of Cincinnati.

Getting information out of any member of the CBC was like pulling teeth from a 4-year-old kid. I can’t even begin to illustrate without writing an entire book on the matter of how many engineers we fired for not moving at the speed we demanded, which was the speed of business. In fact I remember vividly a conversation I had with our architect and investor at the time. This guy had liked our business plan so much he put some of his own money into the project. Then one day he gave us a call and said, “I heard you guys were down at City Hall yelling at the guys in the CBC for dragging their feet. I want you to know that I have a good standing with those guys, and I find it offensive that you’d chose to do business this way.”

Our response was, “Hey, you’re our architect, you work for us. You don’t work for the CBC. If you are friends with them, that’s not our problem.”

The architect then said, “But you guys are trying to cut too many corners. They are telling you what you need to do and you are bucking them at every issue. They told you the type of HAVAC unit you had to install. They told you what the structural improvements were going to be. They told you how many restrooms you were going to have to install and on and on, and you guys seem to want to argue every fact!”
“Buddy, you are supposed to be working on our behalf. You are supposed to do this arguing for us. We’re not supposed to even be involved in this kind of thing. We’re doing it because you aren’t. Anyone can just say ‘spend more money,’ which is what you are saying, and it’s what they are saying. They want a larger fee for the cost of the project. That is all they are after. They are deliberately driving up the cost to receive the larger fee, why can’t you see that?”

“It’s the cost of doing business and you guys don’t want to pay it. It’s cheap and classless. I’m embarrassed to be associated with you guys. I’ve known those people for years and I don’t know what to tell them when you won’t follow their guidance.”

“Who are they but a bunch of pencil-pushing government workers? If we did what you and the CBC are suggesting you guys would add a million dollars to the cost of this project, and that’s just not in the budget.”

“So put it in the budget!” Said the architect. “Just go raise more money. Isn’t that easier than all this?”

My friend and I looked at each other and realized what was going on. It is the same “looter” mentality that we see in all government, especially in schools driven by radical unions. And here it was in the CBC who had an alliance between them and their friends in the building field. And we were being told to “pay up” or get out of town.

“You’re fired,” was what my friend told the architect.

There was silence for a moment on the other end of the phone. “You can’t do that. I’m an investor.”

“Consider it done.”

My friend and I finished the job by doing all the architectural work ourselves, and we found amendments in the building code that allowed us to by-pass all the additional costs that were just ridiculous excuses to make work for members of the building fraternity which centered on the CBC. The architect went from a friend to an extreme foe, but that’s ok, because he was on the wrong side and chose to put himself there. The situation took years to unravel and was extremely disappointing. My experience in working with Cincinnati is that they have made it entirely too expensive to do business within the city because just like a union, the many political factors have attached additional costs to projects just to take care of their friends in the field.

That’s why nobody would speak to us after the riverfront development meeting. We were in that class as, “radicals” who didn’t want to pay off their friends around the city. The result of course was that we took our business across the river to Covington. My meeting with their building division went something like this.

“You guys want to do what? Well, Ok. Sure, no problem.”

My friend and I looked at each other. “But don’t you want to contest HAVAC units, fire escapes, access ramps, structural improvements and fire easements.”

The man laughed, “Hell no, it’s your business. We want you guys over here. Give me a call when you’re ready to move on this project.”

To this day you can see clearly all the development that has moved in along I-275 by the airport and up in Erlanger and Florence, Kentucky. And in Newport along with Covington where both cities had a very friendly attitude toward business, surprisingly “looter” free. Covington built the Covington Landing and all the nice development around the Convention Center and Newport built Newport on the Levee which turned out to be hugely thriving business. In the process Newport gave new birth to Monmouth Street which used to be a hell-hole of prostitution, gambling, and organized crime racketeering, and turned it into a place that families could take their kids to at night. Meanwhile across the river Cincinnati built two stadiums which went drastically over budget (I wonder why) and to this day threaten to bankrupt the city with the excessive tax burdens they exclusively occupy. And Cincinnati nearly 20 years later still doesn’t have any development on the riverfront. They are just now getting around to that type of development.

That is why Cincinnati fails. And that is why Chiquita wants to move to a dust bowl of a town in Charlotte, North Carolina. Because when times get tough, for a business to survive taking care of the “looters” of a town is not their responsibility. This is the reason so many of those “looters” seek government work, because that is the most secure way to care for their network without having to deal with people like me and my friend who refuse to be “looted.”

This is why Cincinnati is in a state of decline, because it has been overrun by these types and all the people with bright ideas and money will take it someplace else, for all the same reasons that companies don’t want to be limited with unionized labor or to deal with companies who are driven by unionized labor. It’s not because they want to hurt a worker’s rights. Most companies don’t want to worry about that kind of thing, that’s why they hire human resource managers, so they can advise the company how to take care of the employees. Because the men and women of this world with ideas and the money to spend on them do not want to be tied down to the speed of complacency and network friendships. They want to move at the speed of business, which is what drives communities and countries to greatness, and is what the looters of the world simply slow down.

The 9/11 Virus: The looters behind the masks and the needle

Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinborough , had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior.

“A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a dictatorship.”

“The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

1. From bondage to spiritual faith;
2. From spiritual faith to great courage;
3. From courage to liberty;
4. From liberty to abundance;
5. From abundance to complacency;
6. From complacency to apathy;
7. From apathy to dependence;
8. From dependence back into bondage.”

With the tragedy of 9/11 occupying almost every broadcast and social event of the weekend, the common theme which came to my mind was that I felt that the tragedy of 9/11, as terrible as it was, fails in comparison to attending a memorial service for your own country while it still lives.

As the NFL did its tribute, and the firefighters climbed to the psychological heap to lift the flag high about their heads, I thought of the unions behind those firefighters, concoctions of socialism hidden behind a mask of American Pride and I could only shake my head. “They don’t even know what they are,” I would think to myself in disgust. They have no concept of history. Their rituals are only a few generations deep and keep them stuck into a ritual that reminds them of the greatest defeat inflicted on American soil, an attack that went far deeper than buildings falling in the financial district of New York City, or even the terrible deaths which occurred there. The tragedy of the 9/11 attack is that it forced America to change, to become too introspective, and to meditate on the tragedy itself in a vain attempt at recollection.

9/11 has allowed the “looters” of society to capitalize on this psychological defeat. By looters in this instance I’m thinking of the do-gooder, who shows to the public an effort at honor, respect, and valor, but the inner meanings are sinister and selfish. An example of this type of looter would be the long-lost sibling who discredited their parents, and when the parents die, the sibling seeks to launch the event into a long sought after resolution. These people show up and cry, and act as though they are devastated by the loss of the parents, but their inner aim is to reconnect with the family of which they severed relations for whatever reason. They seek to use the death of the parents as a way to reestablish contact and respect within the family unit itself. Enshrined within the 9/11 ceremonies that I witnessed were many such types, who on the surface of their soul believe their intentions are good and pure, but in reality are quite sinister. These looters seek to capitalize on the decline of America and to actually perpetuate phase 7 shown above. The goal of the looter is to use the tragedy to gain power. When people grieve in those moments of weakness they look to a leader to help put them back on their feet. That is when the looter strikes, and gains the respect and loyalty of the grieved, like the distraught family member using the death of their parents as a way to regain the respect of the rest of their family.

At a 9/11 event that I attended I was approached by a guy who said, “Hey, you’re Rich Hoffman, you’re that guy who supports Issue 2.”

I looked at the guy shifting gears, because the memorial event was touching and my mind was on it. “Yes, that’s right. I am that guy.”

“Well, I want to tell you, I grew up with firefighters, I’m friends with firefighters, and I stand with firefighters.”

I looked out the window as he spoke and looked at the long lines of firefighters gathered around their trucks and a group of motorcycles all propping up the American Flag from the backs, the riders showing AFL-CIO stickers on their windshields and fenders. “So because you grew up with them you have to think like them?”

The man looked at me with a challenging gaze. “I’m not looking to dispute you with a bunch of ‘fancy’ words. I just want you to know where I stand.”

The man walked off not looking back and I felt sorry for the guy as I watched him grab the hands of the nearest uniformed officers to shake them as if to reassure himself that his proclamation to me was one he needed to solidify.

The firefighters at the service I was at, along with all the armed forces personnel gave me the same feeling that I thought watching the start of all the NFL games, that the memorial we were all attending was not one for 9/11, it was for ourselves. And the events which led to that death was an elusive quality that nobody even saw coming. It is like a death by cancer as opposed to a gruesome death by a visible enemy on a remote battlefield. The death by cancer just eats you from the inside out and the death just happens quietly in a bed.

The men I was looking at were good people, but they are carrying within them something that is destroying their spirit without them even knowing it. It’s rotting them using their static patterns as camouflage. Many of them have no idea they even carry it within them, within their belief patterns which govern their lives.

On 9/11 the tragedy of The World Trade Center was just the needle which injected into the body of our American Culture a disease which would topple our society with apathy. For while we attend memorials and contemplate whether or not firefighters and police should be attached to communist philosophies in the form of labor unions, the enemy moves against us. It runs through the blood of our cultural bodies and is turning the elements of our body against itself, with the aim of destroying it.

The sad thing is, such as in the case of what that guy said to me, that he “stood with firefighters,” as though the prerequisite for supporting firefighters, teachers and police means you must support unionized labor. My question is, why can’t I support those public workers without supporting unionized labor, which is rooted in socialism? I wanted to tell that guy that, but he didn’t give me the chance. He walked off too quickly, and even if he didn’t it would have taken hours of conversation to even arrive at a place where his mind could accept what I was telling him. He is functioning from a static pattern that he spent over 40+ years forming, and that wasn’t going to change in an afternoon conversation with me.

As I watched the guy and his firefighter friends, I thought of the AIDS virus, how as HIV it attacks the immune system of the human body by disguising itself as a friend, then when it is near, it destroys the body’s ability to fight it off the virus, until it’s too late.

America has been infected, and the events of 9/11 has paralyzed America’s immune system and allowed the virus of our enemies to attack us, to overwhelm us, to turn friend against friend on a premise that was a virus to begin with.

My wife and I avoided the group memorial motorcycle ride. We rode home on our motorcycle alone because that’s the way I wanted it. We both had the feeling that it was the last day of the year that we could take a casual ride together on a weekend, so we wanted to take advantage of it, but deeper than that, I wanted to sort out my feelings on this matter. There is a lot at play that is just wrong about 9/11. You want to be respectful to the families, but America must find a way to remember what happened without losing it’s will to fight for its own survival, by allowing the “looters” to sing us to sleep with memorialized words. And the first step in that process is in recognizing that we were not only attacked physically, but culturally, and that cultural attack is threatening to send America to a memorial of its own, if our internal immune system fails to recognize the nature of the disease. And the first step in doing that is to look beyond the looters who use 9/11 as a platform for power, to speak and seduce their way into the good graces of a unknowing public, and realize what the enemy looks like that peers with hungry eyes behind the many veils from which it hides itself. Then and only then can that enemy be fought before it destroys everything we ever were, without a single shot more being fired as sleep reveals the memorial that awaits us in the loneliness of an empty unidentified night where more than a menace resides in the specter of our soul.

Sleeping with a Sleazy Salesman: The Path of the Obama Presidency

On July 29th 2011 President Obama said “I don’t know why the Republicans in the House are voting for their own bill, it doesn’t have a shot at becoming law.  We need to reach a consensus as a nation.”  That statement is the reason for this post.  What Obama is really saying is “play our way, or not at all.”  The Democrats have been very resistant to doing the right thing also, but are misleading the nation with this game, that America can no longer afford.  Be sure to watch every video of this one as well as read the text and take your time.  This is a history lesson from our recent past that must be remembered right now.    Now, let’s study the pattern of behavior which indicates what the true intention of this game really is about for the current President of the United States. 


Like many of us, Jim Garvin is trying to understand the most recent comments of President Obama about the debt ceiling. As I watched the video below I felt for Mr. Gavin, because he represents most of America right now. The bewildered look on their faces is one of betrayal, of being lied to. Most of America knows they are being lied to by politicians from one side or the other. What they don’t know is who to blame, how to determine who is lying, and what to do about it.

What Obama and the political class have done with the federal budget is evident in this video. This spending behavior has been going on for a very long time, and represents a sickness in American politics. It is not appropriate to justify this behavior as “it’s just politics.” The American people have this dangerous tendency to deduct from their overall income what they pay in taxes. If they don’t see the money come out of their wallet, if that money is already gone before they even get their pay check, then they have a tendency to not even care what happens to that money. It’s as if their frustration in not having control of how their money is spent; they remove the thought from their minds completely, which politicians are well aware of.

I once knew a black salesman who reminds me a lot of President Obama. In fact, I’d dare say we have all known someone who considers themselves a “slick” talker who can sell anything to anybody and talk a woman out of her panties without them even being aware of it. I once watched this happen when I went for a drink with this guy and watched him work the bar, “Hey baby, what’s happening you sweet thing.”

I watched and listened and rolled my eyes. What woman would ever fall for a line like that? Anyone could tell that this dude was a creepy guy, right?

The salesman slept with that girl about 15 minutes after he met her, and when I spoke to the salesman about it I asked him how he could do it, how he could have sex with that girl, leave her with a fake phone number after he did the deed, then go back home to his wife and have sex with her in the same night, then come back to brag about it at work the next day?

He was a tall, lanky guy who moved almost identical to Barrack Obama. “Do what my brother,” he said to me using his pinky equipped with a gold ring to scratch his forehead. “I did that little girl a favor. Women love what I got’s to give em’ and if I’d given her my real number she’d be callin’ for more. And I can’t have that. She was lucky she got it once.” He noticed the distress on my face so he added, “Dude, listen. Fu**ing chicks is like selling to customers. You have to convince them that what you are giving them is what they need. And by the time they realize they don’t need what you want to give them, it’s too late, because they’ve either given you the money already, or they’ve given you a piece of ass.”

“But don’t you feel guilty taking advantage of them?” I asked.
“My man,” He said. “That’s cute, that you think people should feel guilty about making money, or fu**ing women. If you want a clean conscience, then take it from me, you will die a poor man looking for your next piece of ass.”

I didn’t dislike that salesman, I learned a lot from him. I learned everything I didn’t want to be. So it isn’t some psychological impairment that makes me think of this salesman every time I hear President Obama talk. It’s just that Obama uses the same kind of manipulation that the salesman uses. It may not be for the purpose of having sex with women, but rather to get people to buy what he’s selling. For this kind of salesman, outright lies are normal. In fact, they are so normal that they can even lie to themselves. When Obama sat down with Google to give a town hall type of speech during his campaign in 2008 it reveals a lot about Obama.

In the clip below with Google, Obama talks about patriotism in a way to cover his true intentions and disarm the client, which is the audience. Just like the con artist who wishes to conceal his dishonesty he cleverly uses gifts to keep people focused on the topics he chooses. For this particular crowd, it is discussions of technology. Obama guarantees every home in America will get broadband access under his future administration, and that his administration will stand up to the light of day by putting ear marks and bills online for all to see. He also talks about saving the planet with green jobs which is appealing to progressives naturally, even if it’s impractical and warped with idealism. When I watched this speech I thought of my old salesman friend who might say, “baby, I’ll by you a diamond necklace if you’ll suck my big **** out in my Cadillac outside.” The girl hears, “Cadillac” so maybe this guy has money. She hears “diamond necklace,” so maybe she can steal this guy away from his present woman. And sucking on something appeals to a natural biological urge many women have and gives them an illusion of control over a man because such an act is an act of trust, since the genitals of a man is the most delicate part of his body. The same types of buzz words are used in this interview, except it’s not sex that is for trade.

Unfortunately for such con artists sometimes they get caught in the lies they tell and this is the case where Harry Reid and President Obama had spoken against the increase of the dept ceiling in 2006. Reid explained that it was only because he was playing politics and it was wrong, so now in 2011, he’s right and everyone should buy into a debt ceiling increase. Obama had perhaps the worst statement. He said that his perspective as a senator was basically not as enlightened as that of the President, where more aspects of the economy must be considered. Without question in some future speech Obama will say that the President of the United Nations must consider the entire world, and not just the affairs of the United States, which is a job he is openly campaigning for.

On occasion there have been people like Mr. Gavin who recognize that something is wrong and they’ve questioned Obama. Such was the case with Joe the Plumber during the 2008 campaign. All the guy did was ask a question and Obama talked the situation into a 5 minute speech trying to justify the scam. Obama would have done better to give a short answer and move to the next topic, because it made Joe the Plumber a celebrity, which the left then proceeded to destroy Joe’s character any way they could. But it was Obama who made the mistake in this exchange. He knew that Joe was seeing through his campaign rhetoric and Obama, the salesman wanted to see if he could overcome Joe’s opposition. When words failed, Obama became very touchy openly putting his hand on the shoulder and arm of Joe the Plumber. This is very similar to a man who has been confronted by a scorned woman and uses touching to take the edge off the woman’s anger, knowing that touching helps psychologically break down the barriers of mental resistance to an idea.

With many of the positions Obama has taken, Muslim radicals seem to have gotten a free pass under his administration. He behaves very strange for a guy who claims that he’s a Christian. The trouble with a man who claims he’s a Christian and not a Muslim is that in politics it is calculated that a Muslim could not be elected, because people are tense over the aggression of many fundamentalists.

Christianity has been attacked by the Obama administration mysteriously. So if Obama is pretending to be a Christian when he is in fact a Muslim then he is deliberately misleading the pubic for political gain. And if he is willing to do that, what else is he willing to mislead the public on? That is the trouble. A man should be willing and able to stand on what they believe, not what they think people want them to believe. Such people are no different from people like that salesman who lie about how much money they have to sleep with a woman. They will say anything to get into the woman’s pants. But even the best of them get caught in their own lies. Here Obama lets it slip that he’s a Muslim then corrects himself to being Christian. Was it an accident? (More on this later)

In this next clip Obama continues to ridicule Christian faith. For a guy who again claims he’s a Christian, he seems pretty angry about it. I mean I personally don’t care if he’s a Muslim, or an Alien from some other planet. My concern is why does he feel he must hide it? Why be misleading?

Glenn Beck shows the Michelle Obama clip where she stated this was the first time she was proud of America. I personally can’t ever recall any upper level politician saying something like this. To me, this clip reveals much of what type of conversations go on at the Obama dinner table, when the cameras aren’t running. Michelle, at the time being inexperienced at deceit in politics spoke her mind, and has since learned to put a softer edge on what she say’s publicly.

To know who Obama is you have to watch all his speeches, not just the ones where he attempts to appeal to all of America, the people like Mr. Gavin. Here is Obama among his people at the Campus Progress meet talking about alternative fuels. Campus Progress is a progressive organization designed to build a progressive political base which is in direct competition against people like me, who are American traditionalists. Progressives hope to erode the effectiveness of traditionalists by appealing to the naivety of young people hungry to rebel from their parents. The trouble with progressives is they attempt to undermine American Politics with a Trojan Horse mentality, by breaking through the barriers of American’s defenses and destroying that opposition from behind those defenses. That’s alarming because Progressives know that their ideas cannot compete directly with traditionalists so they seek the subversive route. Here Obama congratulates the creation of Progressive Leadership and the role of young people in the future.

Knowing that traditionalists will reject much of what Obama is trying to implement, he seeks to appeal to young people by admitting that he smoked marijuana, a lot. When Obama says that he is angry that Washington plays politics, and nothing gets done because of the grid lock, remember that the only reason Obama made this statement is that he was tapping into the same political demographic exploited by Bill Clinton when he played a saxophone on MTV. It’s all about politics.

I hate to bring it up because the relationship that President Obama has or had with Bill Ayers cannot be ignored even though a discussion about that relationship is as contentious as talking about the birth certificate issue. For those who don’t know who Bill Ayers is listen to him talk about his life in The Weather Underground. Obama launched his political career with Bill Ayers as a supporter in the living room of The Weather Underground leaders.

Here is a video with radio interviews of Bill Ayers where his life parallels Barack Obama’s rise to fame. Bill Ayers is a very manipulative and radical hater of the American way of life. He has demonstrated the extent of just what he is willing to do against the American Government. He is an open enemy to all things American, and the government knows it and has known for years exactly where he is at all times yet he’s been free to continue his radical movements with other methods instead of the radical violence of his early years. He’s a retired professor at the University of Chicago. In a new edition of the Bill Ayers memoirs called, Fugitive Days: Memoirs of an Anti-War-Activist, he added a new afterword about Barack Obama describing the blogospheric characterization of their relationship as “neighbors and family friends” (“In 2008 there was a lot of chatter on the blogosphere about my relationship with Barack Obama: we had served together on the board of a foundation, knew one another as neighbors and family friends, held an initial fundraiser at my house, where I’d made a small donation to his earliest political campaign.”).


Obama tried to back off the Ayers connection, but the evidence was just too overwhelming. Now this video isn’t from Fox News, it’s by CNN. Ayers is a man who is willing to do anything to accomplish his objective. When he and his wife bragged about the rise of Barack Obama as a political power in Chicago politics there is no question that Ayers at some point told Obama, “They’ll harass you for knowing me. That’s OK. It’s worth it to have one of our kind in The White House. When they ask don’t feel bad in denying you know me. I’ll understand.”

One last warning about Barack Obama, a look into his past, this video was done in 2008, well before Glenn Beck. Tony Rezko was a major fund-raiser for Barack Obama. Rezko and several others were indicted on federal charges in October 2006, for using their connections to the state boards to demand kickbacks from businesses that wanted to do business with the state. While the others pleaded guilty to the charges, Rezko pleaded not guilty and was found guilty of 16 of the 24 charges filed against him. Rezko also worked with Rod Blagojevich who was just convicted this year in late June of 17 counts of wire fraud, attempted extortion, bribery, conspiracy to commit extortion, and conspiracy to commit bribery, as well as trying to sell President Obama’s former Senate seat in exchange for political favors. This is the circle of associates around President Obama. All these people have displayed the ability to look straight into a camera and lie about their innocence or provide misleading information.

I’ve said a lot on these pages about looters, people who primarily look at public service positions as a way to enrich themselves off tax money. Look at how Michelle Obama and her husband behaved before he became President of the United States. This is how Obama got some of his money that he is so proud of when he state, “people like me are willing to give back some.” Obama has been bragging about his wealth even as far back as the Joe the Plumber question, which I didn’t realize until I just recently looked at it again.

Obama has shown that he will lie, especially in politics. There is no question that he will and has been caught many times as shown above. Listen to him in this CNN investigation.

When you listen to Obama speak about the budget below look at his record. Here he lies 7 times in a 2 minute speech.

Being Muslim is not a problem, as discussed. But lying about it so that a person can get elected is a big problem. Here is convincing evidence that Obama is a Muslim which is proof that the man will lie about a seemingly insignificant issue. So what does anybody think he’d do over a really big issue?

The reason this whole Muslim issue is relevant can be shown from this statement about the condition of the flag and the Muslim faith as told to Dale Lindsborg ‘s Meet the Press from Sunday’s 07 Sept. 2008, 11:48:04 EST, Televised broadcast. The then Senator Obama was asked about his stance on the American Flag.

I had forgotten about this whole issue until a friend of mine reminded me of it after reading other stories I have stated about President Obama and his position over this recent budget battle. The text below is quite startling.

General Bill Ginn, USAF (ret.), asked Obama to explain why he doesn’t follow protocol when the National Anthem is played.

The General stated to Obama that according to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171…

During rendition of the national anthem, when the flag is displayed, all present (except those in uniform) are expected to stand at attention, facing the flag, with the right hand over the heart. Or, at the very least, “Stand and Face It”.

‘Senator’ Obama replied:

“As I’ve said about the flag pin, I don’t want to be perceived as taking sides….” “There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression….” “The anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air, and all that sort of thing.”

Obama continued:, “The National Anthem should be ‘swapped’ for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song ‘I’d Like To Teach the World To Sing.’ If that were our anthem, then I might salute it. In my opinion, we should consider reinventing our National Anthem as well as ‘redesign’ our Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love. It’s my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. If we, as a Nation of waring people, conduct ourselves like the nations of Islam, where peace prevails – – – perhaps a state or period of mutual accord could exist between our governments ……”

“When I become President, I will seek a pact of agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity, and a freedom from disquieting oppressive thoughts . We as a Nation, have placed upon the nations of Islam, an unfair injustice, which is WHY my wife disrespects the Flag, and she and I have attended several flag burning ceremonies in the past.”

“Of course now, I have found myself about to become the President of the United States and I have put my hatred aside. I will use my power to bring CHANGE to this Nation, and offer the people a new path. My wife and I look forward to becoming our Country’s First black Family. Indeed, CHANGE is about to overwhelm the United States of America.”

Dale Lindsborg, Washington Post

This compelling story brings us to one central question, addressed by Mr.Garvin in the start of this article outlining the behavior pattern of one of the most subversive American Presidents in our history. This President was launched into politics by radicals and crooks. He is a public sector looter as defined by the work of philosophy Atlas Shrugged and gained his wealth in that fashion. He has shown that he will lie about his religion. He will lie about his associations. And he will be misleading about his true political intentions.

Just like the salesman who had slept with the girl, without question the girl felt used when she attempted to call the number and found out the smooth talking salesman had lied to her and even given a false number. She had believed everything the man had said because she wanted to. She wanted to believe that there were people who actually told the truth, especially when they spoke so wonderfully, and were pleasant to look at. Normal average everyday people like the woman in the bar, and millions of Americans of all different political affiliations want to believe that there is good in people, especially attractive people.

Sailors have told stories for generations about sirens that used their songs of seduction and elliptical attractiveness to lure those men to their deaths with enchantment upon the hidden rocks disguised below the surface. But it’s not just beautiful women who perform this seduction. Sometimes it’s fast talking salesman with gold rings. Its governors, mobsters, and senators, who use public office to enrich themselves, its radical reformers who hate America and launch a fellow board member into a path to the presidency from his living room, or it’s the President himself, who has his eye on a prize most American’s can’t even conceive, because the audacity of the deception defies credibility. That deception is the end of America as we all know it and a prized position with the United Nations heading that organization toward global concerns.

Lies are not hard for those types, and in this budget battle the fight isn’t over fixing the budget, or even the debt limit. The fight is over our ability to fix it, because the intent is to collapse America as a world power. And the fear from thousands of radicals like Bill Ayers is that their 40 year strategy to end America under the smile of a good-looking, smooth talking President is in jeopardy, because it’s no longer just the radical right, the conspiracy theorists, the Fox News junkies who see the problem. It’s the average, every day people like Jim Garvin who have the look of who just fu**ed me! And why did I let them do it!

Many women have woke up to an empty pillow on the morning after a drunken binge. Now America is about to roll over and see that there is no head in that pillow, and that while we slept the man we brought home not only took advantage of our condition, but also stole all our money, and material goods and headed home to the object of their true desire, a marriage we did not know about until it was too late and we’ll only have ourselves to blame.

Road to Dystopia: The Canton Cops

My editor is in the process of cutting the massive manuscript of my Tail of the Dragon down to under 100,000 words, which will be a difficult rewrite process, but the topic of that novel was on my mind as Doc Thompson spoke with State Rep. Danny Bubp about gun control.  The case of the Canton Police officer who openly abused a man because he had a concealed carry permit was the primary topic.  Tail of the Dragon is all about how politicians use police to impose policy that is not good for the general society, but purely for the good of the politicians who write the law.  Even though abusive cases such as theCantoncop are not the usual situation, it does happen more often than it should, and points to the danger of giving police officers too much control over the general population.  You can hear that discussion here:

To see the officer in question and exactly what was said you can see the entire video below.  This occurrence happened in June of 2011 and is deeply disconcerting for a number of reasons.   

I believe many of the police officers across the country are very much like the other guy in this video, the partner of the primary officer.  That officer seems to be pretty level headed, and is certainly the recessive officer in this search and arrest.  I can understand the initial suspicion of the officers pulling over a questionable vehicle with a known prostitute, her pimp and a guy carrying a gun.  Everything about that situation spelled out trouble. 

However, such a situation requires a coolness that comes from a battle tested individual that can handle the stress of any situation.  Not a panic prone officer who has obvious problems psychologically.  And before I launch into what those problems are I must report that I’ve been shot at, threatened, and I’ve walked into dangerous situations willingly time and time again.  Danger is not something that bothers me, and when I hire someone to work a dangerous job, I expect that person to handle it with cool collectiveness.  I do not expect over-reaction of any kind.  The officer in that video is a dangerous man for many reasons, but the primary reason is that he’s a “pussy.”  Sorry ladies, but that’s the only term for a man like that. 

There are two reasons for the officer’s behavior; first he may be psychologically damaged and ready for the rubber gun squad.  If that’s the case, he should not be on the streets.  If he is such a shell shocked person, if he’s been shot at, or threatened one too many times that he can no longer function in that position, he should not be carrying a gun, driving around in a car, and have the ability to pull people over.  The second and most probable explanation is that the officer is simply a bully, the type I write about in Tail of the Dragon. 

The officer obviously works out a lot, so he has an obsession with his looks.  There isn’t any problem with this, but such people often have a tendency toward narcissism and to satisfy that narcissism they pursue positions of authority to satisfy their hunger for self-admiration.  These types of people are naturally insecure, because real life cannot fill the image of themselves that they’ve built, so they seek a collective consensus of like minded “brothers,” which he referenced twice in this recording to the other officer.  This is a tendency toward insecurity that is unmistakable, which he seeks to cover up visually with body building.  This officer uses the law to beat people into his own self-gratification.  Any level headed individual would approach the driver who did reveal that he had a gun with caution but not be so easily threatened.  The officer obviously used the situation and timing of the gun revelation to satisfy his hunger to abuse someone. 

I propose that the officer had full intention as he pulled up to the car to abuse somebody.  He had set his target on the prostitute, knowing that she was a repeat offender.  This was his clear intention.  But when he came to the driver, who was not the original target, and the driver revealed that he had a gun permit and was carrying, the officer realized that he had a better target to satisfy his narcissism, so he let the girl and her pimp go.  

At this point the narcissistic officer proceeded to harass the driver profusely threatening to “execute him.”  Obviously the officer had crossed the line several times in this exchange.  The driver showed no inclination toward violence and any officer with any experience with violence would know that.  Instead, it is obvious that under the guise of a proposed danger, the officer used this entire situation to satisfy his need for a power trip. 

Every police department in the country has a percentage of their officers who exhibit similar narcissistic behavior.  In fact every class in school, every office, every business, has a few of these abusive types.  Narcissists are a natural by-product of the human race, so we must contend with them.  But we must also use caution on how much power we allow them to have, because such personality types are prone to seek authority positions.  They will fill jobs with police departments, TSA agents, and mall security guards and like positions because those are the most obvious places where they can live out their distorted self-images.  This is why it is a very dangerous tendency of Homeland Security to give more and more police powers to these departments under the guise of protection.  A society who changes itself ideologically out of panic is no different than this foolish police officer who used his cleverly disguised fear of being shot, as a self-fulfillment of his desire to harass another human being with fear.

When terrorists attacked the United States, they sought to create a situation where the narcissists of our culture could be used against the population in general.  By creating a situation that justified panic, we handed more power to the least trustworthy of our citizens in a flimsy trade for national security.  And that situation isn’t getting better, it’s getting worse.  The Fourth Amendment, like the Second Amendment has been distorted and revised for years to gradually wear away the effectiveness through case law of these Constitutional provisions.  The Fourth Amendment (Amendment IV) to the United States Constitution is the part of the Bill of Rights which guards against unreasonable searches and seizures, along with requiring any warrant to be judicially sanctioned and supported by probable cause. It was adopted as a response to the abuse of the writ of assistance, which is a type of general search warrant, in the American Revolution. Search and arrest should be limited in scope according to specific information supplied to the issuing court, usually by a law enforcement officer, who has sworn by it.


The real tragedy of this entire event is that our society has forgotten the meaning of the Fourth Amendment to such an extent that it has actually fed the kind of tyranny present in this video.  All three of the occupants in the car completely submitted to the officers without even questioning their rights, and this only accelerated the narcissistic officer in his search for a weakness to exploit.  The person being harassed should have been upset, not where he put the officer in any danger, but he actually fed the fire by saying, “yes sir.”  That officer didn’t deserve any such recognition for he did not earn it.  A uniform is not enough to give up everything a person is in their life, or to have the threat of that life extinguished to fulfill the fantasy of a mini tyrant under the guise of security.  When a society accepts this behavior as normal, and acceptable, the steps toward a complete loss of personal freedom are not far behind. 

If I had been in the same situation, which I have been on several occasions, there wouldn’t be anything close to the submission shown in that video.  But unfortunately, people who question these policies are fewer than they ever had been and those willing to put their whole life on the line by saying “yes sir,” hoping to appease a tyrant are a growing segment of our population.

Liberty Twp Tea Party Turns Two Years Old: The Rise of a New Guard

The evening July 11,2011 sun beat hard upon the converted barn at the Niederman Farm where the Liberty Twp Tea Party met to celebrate their 2nd year.  There have been a lot of battles over the last couple of years, and as we gathered for the pot luck dinner it was evident that there would be a lot more. 

As this meeting was taking place Obama and the local Speaker of the House John Boehner were battling over the budget and the debt ceiling.  Obama is approaching the negotiations as though various sides, Tea Party Republicans, moderate Republicans, Rhino Republicans, Blue Dog Democrats, Progressive Democrats, and far left radical Democrats all are committed to 100% of their particular positions, and must be prepared to give a little so everyone can agree.  As I scooped up some potato salad that my wife had made I wondered how a person like Obama could ever become president and even say such a thing.  There’s only one right answer, and the president is missing it.  There isn’t money for the programs his party have given away to buy votes.  That’s the bottom line folks.  All those various politicians have for years purchased votes using our tax money, and now those fools are stuck trying to explain why they’ve bankrupted the system. 

The people around me at this gathering are all there for the same reason, we recognize that the government has let us down and taken the nation on a path it doesn’t want to go.  Not everyone has come to that realization yet, because they still hope that somewhere, there is a magical golden egg that will be laid by some golden goose.  Increasingly, these elected representatives are being seen not as leaders, but as con artists and thieves who have stolen from each of us and sold us back bath water claiming it to be an elixir of life. 

While the various ceremonies of this event were going on the Lakota School System was voting for yet another school levy attempt literally right down the road, not more than 3 miles from our location.  In this meeting, everything that is wrong with the government can be seen in the microcosm of public education funding.  Public sector unions, politicians using their education support for votes, and school administrators hoping to use school boards as a political launch pad to become noticed by leaders of one of the two parties have bought into Keynesian economics, like the rest of the government, and they were wrong. 

When John Keynes introduced his Keynesian economics model from the ever-increasing socialist tendencies of the rest of the world, politicians saw an opportunity to exploit that model for their own accents to public supported power.  Keynes was wrong, and every system using it is failing, including schools.  The correct answer is not more of the same theory, but something else completely.  In schools, the task is to convert over to that system without destroying the opportunities of the kids and parents who support the school.  But in education, just like all things in government, the prices of labor, of the services created by labor, and the revenue which supports the entire foundation are artificially inflated, because competition is not allowed to kill off the waste, because government protects those enterprises.  This drives up the costs everywhere for everybody.  And presidents like Obama and school boards like what we have at Lakota, only know to close that inflated value with increased taxes.  They can’t understand any other option because their brains are not wired to accept anything else. 

At Lakota they are going for a tax rate that is less than what they’ve asked for in the past. This is consistent with President Obama’s comments to Speaker Boehner, “You can’t get everything you’ve asked for.”  In the minds of these people bending a little on their political position is what the process is all about. 

But it’s not.  There is only one right answer, not a mixed drink of many tastes.  With something like a budget deficit whether you’re talking about a local school district, or a Federal government, there is a way you got there, and to get out, you must do the opposite of what put you in that position.  That’s the only way.  If you spent a lot of money-making political promises that you didn’t have the authority to commit the tax payers to, or you are a school district that allowed a public sector teachers union to drive up your labor costs recklessly, then you have to admit that you were wrong, that you spent money that wasn’t yours just as a person addicted to gambling must admit that they have a problem before they can get help. You can’t throw more money at the addict, because they’ll never get better.  You have to take away their money so they can’t go to the casino anymore to throw away our money on some jackpot they hope will fix all their problems. 

As I sat among friends and family I thought about the worst issue in the news of them all, and that’s the case of the murdered little girl in Florida, the Casey Anthony trial where the mother appears to have accidentally killed her little girl with an overdose of chloroform and drove around Florida with the body in the trunk for everyone to smell the decomposing body.  The girl was a reckless young woman, and the prosecution went for the death penalty for the severity of the crime.  Last week, Casey was found not guilty; the jurors didn’t have the inner compass of morality to be able to pass judgment on a peer.  Society has lost their ability to judge. 

Most have anyway, except for the people having diner in a country barn with me on that hot July evening. Of American society, these people who the radicals advocating Keynesian economics, progressive global government without borders, and idealists who have never found their way out of the soviet fueled radicalism of the 60’s, those people call my friends here “teabaggers.”  “Teabaggers, meant to be a term of peer pressure, of insult, an attempt by those who are advocating evil openly, to keep society functioning with their eyes closed and hope that somehow their failed theories will somehow come true in the final hour, and if they don’t, they’ll be remembered for their compassion, and not as the thieves they truly are. 

I feel privileged that after two years, the Liberty Twp Tea Party is still here, and it’s growing.  And it refreshes the soul to partake in these events, as the aroma of barn yard animals and community prepared food mixes in a unique waltz of perpetuity.  Because this is how it was in the beginning, and this is the way of the American, to always be ready for a fight, to roll up the sleeves and eat well before a hard day’s work, or the battle that looms on the horizon.  Because only by the path of those in this barn, is the path to liberty and freedom.  And the only right answer in the entire nation is present on the tongues of those in attendance, because they are the last of their kind and Americais waiting for them to fix the nation that has been hijacked by tyrants of good intention.

Sex Trade in Rio: The World and Motivations behind Eyes Wide Shut

Barrack Obama’s disappearance to South American in a time of extreme crises looks suspiciously contemptuous. His relationship with “big labor” and even the George Soro types in the world that are intent on remaking the world is deeply troubling to the minds of many Americans that are committed to honesty and fundamental American values.

I recently wrote an article criticizing the president on his trip listing all the troubles that are currently on the table and one of them was the NFL lockout. Well, of course this got a reaction, because how is the NFL lockout as important as the tsunami in Japan? Well, it’s not. But in the secret recesses of the human mind, it is. The NFL is the game of the American Economy. The “men of the mind” buy boxes and move and shake the world from those seats on Sunday afternoons while gladiators batter each other on the field of play yard by yard. Taking that game out of the public consciousness will have an impact on our national consciousness in a negative way.

Thinking of sports, each year there are stories of athletes that attempt a competitive edge by use of steroids, or some other method. Well, in business, the same holds true, or in any other endeavor.

A few years ago I wrote a book called The Symposium of Justice that explored through the eyes of a modern Zorro type character the sinister exploits of a secret world that attempts to gain such competitive advantage over others by appeasing “the gods” or “demons” or whatever you want to call them. These rituals, which I can testify to, have their sources in ancient sacrifices where humans were killed to appease those gods. Well, to the American, Christian mind, such things are preposterous and archaic ways of thinking. But those societies that participated in such brutality such as those in central America 1000 AD to 1500 AD particularly, Native American cultures, Mesopotamia, and head hunting cultures of New Guinea all had rituals to appease the hidden elements that exist all around us in a hope that such aid would help grow better crops, or bring water to the community.

I know a few people who are practicing shaman, one that lives in St. Louis and she invited my wife and me to a spiritual gathering recently. Below is a video from her friend Chief Golden Light/Eagle who comes often to Serpent Mound, Ohio for yearly ceremonies to explain some of the mysteries between human beings and the world around us. Now to the untrained ear stuck in the world of the here and now, some of this will sound strange. Remember, just because you don’t understand, does not mean these things don’t exist.

Similar powers are explored often in the culture of voodoo, which you can find easily in the south. In fact, it’s not difficult to find a practicing voodoo priest if you go Hilton Head Island or Savannah Georgia. Many are working as dish washers in the back rooms of restaurants and they live in small trailers or even tents just outside of town, but they can certainly conger up a voodoo doll or reach into the spirit realm for you for a small fee, and bring bad luck on an enemy, or even cause an enemy to get seriously sick.

This is why I find the film Eyes Wide Shut particularly fascinating. Stanley Kubrick, creator of 2001 A Space Odyssey and The Shining jumped into the world of the rich and powerful that attempt to use sex drugs and violence to curry favor with the spirit world. Now, Kubrick was no kook. He was a serious and very talented filmmaker and he spent many, many hours researching the shocking video you will see below. He actually did what the character Tom Cruise did in the film; he snuck into these secret societies and studied what was going on and why. He depicted this action in his film, and he did not live to see it delivered to theaters. Tom Cruise violently protected the final cut of the film with his reputation, which he paid for. The film was delivered to the public as Kubrick intended, but the professional lives of Tom Cruise and Nichole Kidman were forever tarnished by the film, proving how deep the influence goes into even the very rich and powerful. In fact, Cruise and Kidman’s marriage didn’t last. They divorced shortly after the film was released. Cruise buried himself into scientology shortly thereafter and lost credibility with the public at large.

Here is an edited clip from the films ritual scene.

You can see the whole ritual scene at this link which I’ll avoid on this page because it contains graphic nudity. Now when you watch this remember that the women brought into this ceremony are common prostitutes bought though the sex trade industry and drugged with aphrodisiacs so they’d be prepared for the mass orgy.

Steve Spielberg even came in for the DVD release and helped maintain the integrity of the film, which appears to have cost him his career as well. Spielberg is only a fraction of what he used to be as a creative talent.

So what’s in the chant? You’d think by watching that clip that it is a demonic chant, but it’s not. Here’s the translation.
Romanian Chant (In the movie, it is played backwards. Here are the normal version, backwards version and translation)

Normal Version

Zisa Domnului catre ucenicii sai…Porunca noua dau voua…Domnului sa ne rugam pentru mila, viata, pacea, sanatatea, mantuirea, cercetarea, lasarea si iertarea pacatelor robilor lui Dumnezeu. Inchinatori, miluitori si binefacatori ai sfantului lacasului acestuia.

Backwards Version

Auov uad auon acnurop ias iicinecu ertac iulunmod asiz… Aiutseca iulusacal iulutnafs ia irotacafenib is irotiulim irotanihcni.
Uezenmud iul rolibor roletacap aeratrei is aerasal aeratecrec aeriutnam aetatanas aecap ataiv alim urtnep magur en as iulunmod. Auov uad auon acnurop ias iicinecu ertac iulunmod asiz…

Pray from India

Parithranaya Saadhunam Vinashaya cha dushkrithaam Dharmasamsthabanarth aya Sambhavami yuge yuge


And God told to his apprentices…I gave you a command…to pray to the Lord for the mercy, life, peace, health, salvation, the search, the leave and the forgiveness of the sins of God’s children. The ones that pray, they have mercy and they take good care of this holy place.

It would appear, much like in the Old Testament of the Bible that many who wish to social climb still believe that the spirit world will appease their earthly wishes if those that have command of the earth will make ritual sacrifices in the name of God’s children. Now those sacrifices aren’t necessarily to Yahweh but to what the Bible might refer to as“false gods.”
Whatever you believe, it is clear that there are many, who do believe such things, and they attempt to monopolize not just our physical laws in our state houses, and federal government, but they do play this game of spirit world appeasement. Whether or not it actually works is up to debate. But for such a long human tradition to endure for so long, results are believed to be promising, even among our current elite, which Kubrick studied in great detail.

My point in bringing this up is that it is obvious that there is more to the story of what is behind the obvious neglect by our elected officials to follow the laws of the Constitution. There are some, although in the minority, that are corrupt and evil to the absolute core of their being, and do believe that they will personally prosper by bringing decadence to the world. And that if anything is to be fixed, it will not be enough to fix only our understanding of the law as established in the Constitution, but we will have to have a spiritual awaking as well, one that does not subscribe to warped religious practices and a hunger for things done in secret in an attempt to get a spiritual advantage.

It is not farfetched to consider such things. Daily, millions of people read their horoscopes, which is a gateway acceptance to this type of ritualistic indulgence.

Case in point, the violence on the border of the United States and Mexico is clearly a situation that should provoke war. But instead we see appeasement so that drugs can continue to flow freely. We see the sex trade industry thriving out in the open even though consciously we all agree that it’s morally wrong.

Not only are drugs encouraged to continue to pour into our country to feed the weak among our fellow Americans with more mind numbing devices but the sex slavery is also endorsed.

The sex trade industry is an epic travesty upon the face of the world and progressives are naive to think of world peace when the hearts of man are corrupt with such black thoughts.

Yet this is how it’s sold to the public. Remember where the UN meets.

To make real and permanent repairs to the human condition, and the laws we live under, it is important to make the distinction into what it is we are actually trying to achieve. We can say with certainty that we want the nation restored, but there are those in the world that are first sexually promiscuous and crave power to have access to sexual deviancy, and those that believe that organizing sex practices are appealing to “the gods” and those gods will give them power and dominion over others.

So in our quests these accounts must be considered for what they’re worth, and if justice is sought, it must be sought for all, sex slaves and child trafficking included.

Consider just in the United States the porn industry generates billions and billions of dollars every year, 97 billion worldwide and that’s the money that is traceable that file SEC statements. That’s more money than Microsoft, Google, Amazon, eBay, Yahoo, Netflix, Apple, combined. Just in the United States porn makes more money than Major League Baseball, the NHL and the NFL combined with revenues of NBC, CBS, and ABC.

The question you have to ask is………………………….why?

Now I know why President Obama is going to Rio. He’s going to save all the children from sex tourism that is so rampant there.

Oh……..sorry to get your hopes up. Everyone knows this is going on, just like the people in the room in Eyes Wide Shut, (hence the title) Obama won’t even bring it up because his bosses would chastise him for it. And we all know what happens to people who try to expose this terrible industry rooted in corrupt human sacrifice. Ask Stanley Kubrick, and Tom Cruise, when the name Cruise used to mean something, and Kubrick was still alive.
