Take Back our Country

Roughly 50% of the American population could be classified as “white”.  The other half are a mixture of Latinos, Blacks, Asians, etc.  If you are a politician, presumably you want to be able to produce results for all of your constituents.  There is no question that you would be destroyed if you developed policies that […]

There is a story told about Henry Ford.  He was walking with a union organizer  at the Ford plant in Dearborn, Michigan.  Henry, proudly, pointed to one of his Model T Fords, and said, “let’s see you organize that”.  The union man replied, “let’s see you sell it a car”.  True story?  I have no […]
