Path to Greatness

Barry, My Liege :

The good news about your situation today is a clear path to greatness for you ; and, the even better news is the United States of America will be a better country if you walk that path.

You will achieve greatness by restoring the Economic National Security of the United States of America.

Make no mistake, the path is difficult to walk. It will test you to the utmost.

Restoring our security will require you to pass several laws through Congress ; and, that is where the difficulties lie.

The list of laws we need is enumerated in this space as published on 9.22.12 with the title 'Recovery and Restoration of the USA, 2013'.

Now, it happens that your party does not have a majority in the House of Representatives, which means that you will have to secure the votes of some Republican House members for every law you pass.

I cannot overstate the importance of your personal involvement in the process. You cannot outsource the campaign.

Only your personal, intimate involvement will succeed.

Nobody else, not even Nancy Pelosi or John Boehner, can get this done for you.

And, My Liege, you have between 6 and 12 months to accomplish all that you can accomplish - it will be too late after that.

Here is an amateur's suggestion about how to walk that path.

First, create a list of each law required to complete the path.

Then, for each law, find a number of Republican Representatives needed to pass the House.

Ideally, each such Representative will be from a closely fought election where the Democrat opponent is a strong contender.

Contact the three largest campaign contributors to the Republican's election campaign and determine that each is indifferent to the proposed law.

Then, you personally make an offer to each backer and to the Representative that in exchange for the vote on your proposal, the Democrat challenger will not receive Party financing for the next election.

Of course, the Republican House members will be different for each law you work on, but the process will be similar.

We cannot overstate the stakes for our country here, My Liege.

Succeed here and the country is saved.

Fail here and the great American experiment is dead.

We wish you Godspeed, My Liege.

Your faithful servant,

FOR SALE - Republican Respect

Barry, My Liege :

The election was great news for the country and for you. Congratulations on your victory.

But, the following message is for the leaders in the opposition Party, The Republican Party, but you can read it if you want.

To McConnel, Boehner, et al : your Republican Party embarrassed our country with its incompetent performance in the election.

To survive as a functioning country, we need two competent political parties so that policy proposals can be vetted thoroughly.

That cannot happen unless and until the Republican Party reforms its policies into a coherent platform.

Your current platform is a mash up of outdated ideas, false assumptions, bad arithmetic and economic policies which have been proven to be unworkable.

For example, one of your Party's primary policies is that lower taxes on high income individuals will result in more investment and job creation.

This idea is false.

The American electorate understands that your party's ideas are false or irrelevant.

No amount of pandering to social concerns like homophobia, misogyny or fear of immigration can overcome a core of ideas which is perceived as outdated.

The Republican Party faces the likelihood of irrelevance unless it updates its messages.

So far, no one has proposed a coherent set of policy ideas for the Republican Party.

And yet that is what your Party needs.

As a remedy, the author hereby proposes to create a coherent Republican Party platform of economic policies that will do all these things :

* Appeal to the Conservative base

* Attract ethnic minorities, women and young people into the party

* Revitalize the party as an institution

* Make our country stronger by energizing the political debate

* And, provide more election winners.

It is a win-win proposition. The Republican Party wins back its relevance and the country wins a respectable opposition.

While such a platform is a bargain at any price, I hereby offer to provide this for a medium six figure price.

Since my specialty is national economic policy analysis, I am the logical person for this task.

It will be the greatest bargain imaginable for the GOP.

And, since I have consistently provided a deep understanding of the Democratic policy base, I am able to provide its counter easily.

To see the Democratic economic policy base, scroll to this post : Recovery and Restoration of the United States, 9.22.12

MONSANTO - C-RAT Corporate Real American Terrorist - 3

Barry, My Liege :

Monsanto is a Corporate Real American Terrorist [C-RAT] because of its long standing policy of making profits from products which cause cancer in animals and humans. Their history includes dioxin, Round Up and now GMO's, products which interefere with the genetic structure of our food.

It does so to collect profits for its shareholders at the expense of our health.

Monsanto's business model appears to be to maximize profits from cancer causing products while allowing the greater society to pay for the medical costs of its products.

As just one example of the harm done to animals consuming its genetically modified products, the Daily Mail reported on a French study of rats consuming GMO modified corn : "The animals on the GM diet suffered mammary tumors, as well as severe liver and kidney damage. The researchers said 50 percent of males and 70 percent of females died prematurely, compared with only 30 percent and 20 percent in the control group." []

My Liege, I do not recommend that you or your family eat any products made from corn grown in the United States. That recommendation is based on the practice that the United States of America does not have any labelling laws which require that food products with GMO's be labelled as such. Most other industrialized countries do have such laws. But, we cannot know what is in our food.

Additionally, Monsanto routinely places false information in the media about its products and practices as well as supressing any press reports about scientific work which demonstrates harm from its products.

A further business practice of the company is to patent genetically modified seeds made by farmers on other countries and then charge those farmers a fee to use the seeds. There are reports of strong arm tactics as well.

Even though the company's practices are obviously unethical, they are legal under our justice system.

Perhaps Monsanto's Board is simply maximizing profits while waiting for the legal system to catch up to our morals.

Here are links with futher discussion of the company :

In the meantime, My Liege, we should publically villify the company and its business practices. Additionally, any person who has a family member suffering from cancer should write a detailed hand written letter explaining the effects of that cancer on the body and family of the disease.

You can write the individual Board member listed below at the Monsanto address below or at their other affiliation :

1. David L. Chicoine, Ph.D. is president of South Dakota State University and professor of economics.

2. Janice L. Fields is president of McDonald’s USA, LLC, a subsidiary of McDonald’s Corporation.

3. Hugh Grant is the chairman and chief executive officer of Monsanto Company.

4. Arthur H. Harper is managing partner of GenNx360 Capital Partners.

5. Laura Ipsen is corporate vice president of Microsoft Corp.'s Worldwide Public Sector organization.

6. Gwendolyn S. King is president of Podium Prose, a speakers bureau.

7. C. Steven McMillan is a retired chairman of the board and CEO of Sara Lee Corporation.

8. Jon R Moeller is chief financial officer of The Procter & Gamble Company.

9. William U. Parfet is chairman of the board and chief executive officer of MPI Research Inc.

10. George H. Poste, Ph. D., D.V.M. is chief executive of Health Technology Networks.
