The sentence I hear most from well-meaning, conservative friends since President Trump’s election is this: “We suffered 8 years under Barack Obama.”
Fair enough. Let’s take a look.
The day Obama took office, the Dow closed at 7,949 points. Eight years later, the Dow had almost tripled.
General Motors and Chrysler were on the brink of bankruptcy, with Ford not far behind, and their failure, along with their supply chains, would have meant the loss of millions of jobs. Obama pushed through a controversial, $8o billion bailout to save the car industry. The U.S. car industry survived, started making money again, and the entire $80 billion was paid back, with interest.
While we remain vulnerable to lone-wolf attacks, no foreign terrorist organization has successfully executed a mass attack here since 9/11.
Obama ordered the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden.
He drew down the number…

Donald was promoted to his level of incompetence. He had some basic skills in the real estate field. A fairly simple industry. Find, acquire and reuse is the basic premise. There’s not much else to it. Politics requires empathy and compromise. He just doesn’t have it in him. Most often action and inaction speak louder than words. In this case his inactions were the product of one of two things. Either he does have racist tendencies or he was so busy trying to keep his job that he forgot to do his job. In other words, he may have been trying not to offend, as David Duke stated, “those who voted for him” many of which have bruised egos from watching “inferior races” surpass them in our class system. This especially struck a hard cord once the highest office in the country was occupied by an individual who is of a mixed race, Obama’s name alone became a racial slur among Republicans. This was more than apparent when the Affordable Care Act was first and is still referred to as ObamaCare. What they really mean is “N Word Care”. Evolve America! What makes America great is equal opportunity and caring for those less fortunate than us. I saw the shift in our country in the 70’s. President Carter addressed the nation bravely when he said we have become a nation where “Human identity is no longer defined by what one does, but by what one owns.” What makes us “Americans” is standing up for the less fortunate and resolving injustice here and abroad. http://www.americanrhetoric.com/speeches/jimmycartercrisisofconfidence.htm
Happy Birthday to my amazing mom. You taught us how to love our children, how to appreciate nature and how to empathize with others. We all miss you here but we know you are always watching over us from over there. Thanks for your love, encouragement and support in all ways.
Over the last few years few years I’ve received an on air mediumistic reading on Being with Ron Ash before our annual family picnic. I never ask for anyone in particular to come through, This year my mom came in with a much needed message, “Stop suffering!” She mentioned that she loved a car with a light colored interior, She said, “when you are driving that car I’m with you.” Her hair would be blowing out the window of that 1979 Pontiac Trans Am, a car I had purchased as a tribute to her after she passed. She always wanted one. I could feel an overwhelming sense of her energy as West Coast Medium Vicki Murphy channeled my message on that July 17th.
Fast forward to August 5th following a tour of Marble House and Breakers in Newport RI. My cousin Jay and his girlfriend Cynthy were visiting from California. After our tour he suggested we stop for an Ale. They followed me to a restaurant which happened to be closed down. I went up the street further and pulled into another. We went in and in a short time the mediumistic reading came up in conversation. As I talked about it, I got a powerful sense of her energy. I shared what I was feeling. Shortly after we paid the check and walked outside to say our final goodbyes before their trip back. To our surprise, parked next to my Jeep was a 1979 Trans Am. It was mom just letting us know she’s always with us.
I had an interesting conversation with close family over an amazing dinner at the Safari Room at Oceancliff this week. You have to try the Seafood Scampi. Good stuff!
We were discussing politics. Very dangerous ground since we all have very different political views. Maybe we’ll get into religion next time. Anyway, we came up with a streamlined program to solve our nations financial crisis. Well, maybe we did.
Most won’t like this but, it makes perfect sense. First, we need to get rid of cash. Most don’t use it anymore anyway. Those who do in most case are either pawns in someone else’s scheme to not pay taxes or are simply wanting to reap the benefits of our economy without having to pay their share of taxes. You’ve seen legitimate licensed cash only businesses in your daily walk. Ironically, I’d visit them more frequently if I carried cash but, I’m that direct deposit debit card kind of guy. Those conducting illegal activities prefer cash as well. Yes, there are those who simply don’t trust the banks, but these are few and far between. Taxes have gotten a bad rap over the years because our government keeps raising them to counteract the damages from those who don’t pay their share. You know, “The smart people.” No cash means reduced crime, lower law enforcement costs and it will make the IRS virtually obsolete. It also means more money for or deteriorating infrastructure, educational systems and an affordable health care system that doesn’t strangle the middle class.
That brings us to our next idea. Let’s remove the deductions for everyone. There are so many loopholes in our tax laws that the middle class simply foots the majority of the bill for everyone else. I’m talking about the richest and the poorest. When we remove the deductions everyone can pay the same tax rate. Yes, I know the flat tax scares a lot of people. I’ve been on both sides of the fence on this issue. However, a flat tax absent of deductions will ensure everyone pays their fair share of taxes. This will improve the quality of life for all and solve a plethora of other issues as well; the taxation of interstate commerce being a huge one So, are you with us? Are you for a better, cleaner healthy life for all or are you a mattress stuffer who has kid yourself into believing stashing away cash is how the richest and most prominent people in the world got to where they are today? Let us know. I’ll pass it along to my “Safari Room Round Table” participants.
