Leadership ideas for the USA

Family, Community and Your Neighborhood

It’s a New Year in America, and we need to look ahead. A long ways ahead, and then it helps us know what to do today. Everyone agrees that in America, pursuit of Happiness is the right of the individual. Your dad didn’t have to be a King or other Monarch for you to rise to the top in America. Anything was possible, even the impossible! Your family values were backed up by your family integrity, and your grandparents helped you understand who you were. You had shame and humiliation to help back up those family values. If you couldn’t […]

Willing to Thrive in 2025!

It isn’t enough to just get by in America. This is where a family can grow and thrive, and benefit from the kindness that America brings to the dinner table. With VELOCITY of money, the economy thrives because money keeps moving through the local economy. You can’t “not spend” your way out of a recession. We all must support the local business in town, if you want it to be there for you. America is where the focus is on the family, values, and integrity to keep the system running. Our local government needs to have integrity and character to

We the People need to speak up.

When did Congress stop looking out for “We the People?” When did they remove themselves from social security and build out their own retirement system? We still need 50 United States that come together with their different flavors and characters to make up the fabric of the United States of America. What made America great was the fact that anyone could rise up and do better. Work ethic was as important, and maybe even more than just your blood line. Society is made up of many people and many groups, and our strength is in the variety. It’s only when

Obama Scare in one sentence…

I can’t be proud of a Congress that doesn’t read any law before they pass it.  The Senate and the House have a job to do for the American people.  They let us down in 2010 when they kicked the can further down the road on the Bush Tax Cuts.  The 12/31/2012 time frame looms in front of us, and again, Congress cannot get anything done.  I’m watching families fail on a daily basis, while congress waits until November.  The American People are not stupid.  Stop treating us like we are. With all the technology we have now, why was

Ode to Wisconsin!

My DNA was in Wisconsin during the late 1880’s when my great grandparents left Europe and made their way to America. My own grandmother was born in Wassau in 1893 and grew up speaking German before English. I think back to all the opinions my grandparents had, and even how narrow their minds appear now. My grandfather was never interested in being politically correct, and he felt confident we should all know what he thought. His lifetime had taught him many lessons, and as an old man he knew some things! He knew that freedom meant others could not tell

Leadership of America

It’s so basic, we forget how simple it is. The Governor is in charge of the State, and each state in the Union has a little different flavor and character. The Cities, towns and communities have their own leadership and we all work together to keep local economies moving and a healthy chamber of commerce. It is all built around clean water and sanitation with a power grid to sustain life and industry. Transportation is key, and how the people get around is open for discussion. In 1850 the world moved at 3-5 miles an hour. Technology has been put

The Royal Wedding

I remember in 1981, when I got up very early while it was still dark.  I wanted to see Lady Diana Spencer marry Prince Charles.  It was a wonderful courtship and the wedding did not disappoint us.  I was a young bride myself at the time.  We watched them have children together, heirs to the throne.  It was a beautiful thing.  The Queen could see life, and her mother was still alive too.  It is fun to see your bloodline thrive.  The Monarchy has a place in history and it helped early man survive and evolve.  The Monarchy still has

Are you ready to travel?

We just got our new US Passport in the mail, and it is beautiful.  I’ve had a passport since I was 13, and it made me feel like a global citizen.  When I traveled in Europe the blue USA Passport was like traveling on the “gold card.”  You were treated well, and they knew we were a secure nation of good people.  Europe wanted our travelers there!  Many of us had DNA roots in Europe.  Back in that day we checked “white” on the paperwork and forms.  Today I’m a EuroAmerican!  The new Passport ID Cards are very good too.

Why we didn’t need Obamacare.

In 1996 we had Kennedy-Kassebaum which was intended to fix the health care problem. It gave self employed the Medical Savings Account, a forerunner to the newer Health Savings Account. “They” were paranoid too many self employed would take advantage of this new tool, so they capped the number at 700,000 eligible participants in the country. We never got near that much participation initially and they have tinkered with it ever since. There are so many rules and regulations that continue to bog down “the system” and make it so honest men can’t comply. Kennedy-Kassebaum Law Means Greater Fraud Scrutiny

A Proud American

If you could stick together, as 87 Proud Patriotic Americans, committed to old fashion values, and not sell out for cash and power, would you? We have that group right now in our new freshman congressmen. We must return to the vision that Benjamin Franklin showed us when he gave away money to a university, to hold and manage for 100 years before they used it. He was brilliant, to show us compounding interest grows geometrically. But so does debt, and we all know that lesson now. We all need to brush up on our history lessons. My son’s 8th
