How Do You Spend a Trillion Dollars a Year and Not Cure Cancer?

Murders by guns are minuscule compared to deaths by cancer. Where are our priorities?

Drinkin’ cold coffee.
Seems I’m not alone.
Can’t find the time.
Time’s already gone.

Livin’ in the moment,
Cuz there’s no going back.
Caught in the spin,
Not sure it’s a sin.
This thing we’re living in.

You’re not dyin’ alone.
Zoom’s just a token,
For words unspoken.
We still feel.
Our tears are real.

Drinkin’ cold coffee.
Seems I’m not alone.
Can’t find the time.
Time’s already gone.

I’m still breathin’
My heart’s still beatin’
You’re still my everythin’
Holding you close is no sin.
Let’s kill this thing.

If you’re going to kiss a frog,
Just make sure its the one,
Warts and all.
Those lips you kiss,
Could get you this thing.

Drinkin’ cold coffee.
Seems I’m not alone.
Can’t find the time.
Time’s already gone.

In Life, the Most Important Decisions Are Made Alone.

It’s easier to make the tough decisions if you know someone has your back. Loyalty is earned, not deserved.

We are experience!

My experience from a flailing and fledgling salesperson to the owner and CEO of a successful software company, the most important decisions you make, you make alone.

I’m not a life coach.  I’m not a marketing guru. I’m not a motivational speaker or social media guru.

I have nothing to gain by sharing my personal experiences, so I will spare you any hype. I just want to reinforce my own beliefs, that people can make a difference, if they are willing to open their minds and hearts, without prejudice.

Whether you are a family man or woman, a CEO of a multi-billion dollar corporation, if people depend on you for guidance, you are held accountable for the success or failure of others.  Therefore, you have to make decisions that affect other people for better or for worse. That is my definition of a leader, plain and simple.  You don’t have to be Bill Gates to shine or suck. Worse, you probably have less to gain by making the tough decisions, at least from a monetary perspective.

Others will pontificate as to what a leader is, what a leader must do and how a leader must act.  I don’t have time for all that and if you’re like me, neither do you.  The best way to describe how to deal with your life’s biggest challenges is to rely on your past experiences and your gut. Do something!

When it comes to crunch time, a leader must decide on their own and act accordingly.  You’ll no doubt, get plenty of advice, but no one is going to know better than you, what to do.  So there is nowhere to turn.  Ultimately you are the most qualified to make a decision that affects you and your loved ones.

You must make the most important decisions in your life, and make those decisions on your own.  Sorry Doctor Phil.  This isn’t a TV show.  This is real life.  The same holds true in business.

When the time comes no one wants to make the important decisions for you.  Don’t get me wrong.  You will get plenty of advice.  “If I were you…” “You should…”  “You could…” “You might…” Later on, after the decision has been made, you will summarily receive the same words, only in different context.  “If it were me…” “I would have…”  I could have…”  “I would have…

I am sure you have heard these expressions as well, “It is lonely at the top.”  It matters less your stature in life.  It matter most, the decisions you make based on the challenges you face.  Trust me, from a person of experience, the most difficult decisions you have ever made and the most important decisions you will ever make, will be your decisions alone.

We are experience.  Small business owners are the lifeblood of free enterprise. Their heart is still beating.  Their soul is intact.  They epitomize what comprises the backbone of our country.  They are the chief cook and bottle washers; the real risk takers.  Small business owners are essential to the future success of the US economy. 

Small business owners are the spine that stands up and remains strong in the face of diversity, against ever increasing government regulations, against subsidies to big union, subsidies to big businesses and big government.  Small businesses must prevail if we are to remain strong and maintain our leadership position in the world economy. 

We need to lift our voice above the fray.  We need to unite. We need to be heard, above the voices of the mainstream media, the politicians, above the voices of divisiveness and hate, above the voices of fear and doubt. It is time to come together.  The future is now.  The future is no longer an individual choice and your choice alone.  We need to unite. Let’s make some noise.  Let’s take a stand.  What are you doing to preserve the American dream?  Email me: ideacapiltalists@gmail.com

 

 

Bill Gates Says The Cost Of Switching To Wind And Solar Would Be “Beyond Astronomical”

Bill Gates says renewables are rubbish.

Bill Gates says renewables are rubbish.

Finally! Someone with some serious creds behind him talks common sense solutions!

Retired software kingpin and richest man in the world Bill Gates says today’s renewable-energy technologies aren’t a viable solution for reducing CO2 levels, and governments should divert green subsidies into R&D aimed at better answers.

Here is Obama’s GREENTECH FAIL list WHICH HAS LAID WASTE ON TAXPAYER DOLLARS!!!

Real Science

Bill Gates points out that wide scale wind and solar energy are a farce, and that people who claim it isn’t have no idea what they are talking about.

Retired software kingpin and richest man in the world Bill Gates says today’s renewable-energy technologies aren’t a viable solution for reducing CO2 levels, and governments should divert green subsidies into R&D aimed at better answers.

Gates expressed his views in an interview given to the Financial Times yesterday, saying that the cost of using current renewables such as solar panels and windfarms to produce all or most power would be “beyond astronomical”. At present very little power comes from renewables: in the UK just 5.2 per cent, the majority of which is dubiously-green biofuel burning1 rather than renewable ‘leccy – and even so, energy bills have surged and will surge further as a result.

In Bill Gates’ view, the answer is for governments to divert the…

ISIS Beheads Cigarette Smokers: Islamic State Deems Smoking ‘Slow Suicide’ Under Sharia Law – IBT

ISIS, ISIL, FU

There’s enough tears to go around.

There’s enough hate to abound.

Soon we’ll have boots on the ground.

What’s already real is up in the air.

We can’t stop the scorn,

You won’t weather the storm.

We can’t tolerate the act.

That’s a Politifact.

Truth is we don’t care anymore.

What’s right, what’s wrong, there’s the door.

You signed up for this mess.

ISIS, ISIL, FU. No forgiveness.

Bring a shovel, dig your grave, then confess.

Tomorrow’s headlines are already read.

You’re dead.

The End

Liberals fly 1,700 private jets to Switzerland so they can PRETEND to care about global warming and income inequality

I guess pigs can fly?!

Dan from Squirrel Hill's Blog

Perhaps someday, these global warming conferences will be done using environmentally friendly Skype instead of the current policy of burning massive amounts of fossil fuel on 1,700 private jets.

Officer Down

ODMPI was reading all the vitriol regarding police officer shootings on websites like this one Nobody Knows How Many Americans The Police Kill Each Year.

This site reported an FBI estimate the number of police homicides per year at around 400. This site is hoping to get the public’s help We’re Compiling Every Police-Involved Shooting In America. Help Us. A potentially more reliable site just reports police officer shootings, whether or not deemed justifiable, Killed by Police.

There are plenty of these sites looking for bad cops.  Not so many, expounding the virtues of good cops.

I am more interested in determining how many police officers actually have lost their lives in the line of duty.  I found this site to be an excellent and reliable source with great detail and presented in a caring, highly professional manner Officer Down Memorial Page.  What it didn’t have was a quick snapshot of officer and K9 deaths summarized by year.  I listed some of the more violent categories and lumped the rest, like heart attacks, not to be taken lightly, under Other.  You can draw your own conclusions but serving your community as a police office is a dangerous profession.  God bless the men in Blue!
