TRUMP’S FIRST BIG MISTAKE!

I have supported our President since he announced his intention to seek the office. The reason for my decision was that he was only the second American from a major political group to seek the office who was not a career politician. The other was Dwight Eisenhower who was also the first person I was able to vote for to be President a long time ago. I had spent over four years in the Navy, three and a half on active duty. I was Married with one daughter and one on the way when I cast my first vote for anything.

Now we have Americans voting at 18 that can’t add 2 + 2, ignored by society or preparing to enter a college or University. After four years of being taught to ignore the Constitution, how to spit on or burn our flag, hate our military and demonstrate before they graduate. This has been happening long enough now to divide the people and spew hate in every direction. The hate in America appears to have reached a crescendo that will end with another civil war if Trump fails.

Watching every move Trump had promised to do, several have ended up squashed by Congress, the political driven Supreme court or the Demoncratic Secret Society. These groups have funded protest for everything possible and are corrupting every Federal Agency including the FBI, the State Department and likely every arm of Government. The media is using every event to stir up Americans with fake news, hysterical lies, innuendos to motivate the young people to riot, damage property and hate our country.

Trump has been systematically doing things he promised in the months of bloodthirsty and savage campaigning. He has started draining the swamp as promised while having to fight both the Republican and Democratic losers who have nearly led and managed America to bankruptcy and third world stature.

Much to my surprise he has now attacked one of the most innovative and expertly managed companies since Sam Walton started Sam’s Clubs and Walmart. He has, for some strange reason, mounted an attack on Amazom.com for taking advantage of a contract with the Postal Service. If he has a problem with Jeff Bezos he should attack what Amazon has done wrong. I doubt the Amazon folks took advantage of an agency that has never made a profit in history. President Trump should have avoided the Postal Service, Tennessee Valley Authority and Amtrac when starting a fight with anyone about failure. He should be trying to privatize these perennial failures and eliminate the losses written off every year. If he is jealous of Bezos wait until he is no longer President. He should be trying to get Amazon to modernize every government agency that exists and save us Trillions by “Doing the Right Things Right the First Time”. This was the slogan for my companies

If the truth were known I imagine the contract Amazon has with the Postal Service was sought after by the USPS? Before he attacked by backstabbing Amazon he should have asked some questions.How many people did the USPS employ just to do the increased Amazon workload.

If it was none, what were the people doing before the added work?

If it was 2,000 new people, what will they do if the Amazon contract is ended? My guess is nothing, what is your guess?

Of all the recent new companies Amazon operations and leadership should be used to teach our Government how to be successful. I doubt Amazon has a pension program that allows people to retire after 20 years service. I spent 27 years, 25 in management, for a major corporation. I did leave them to improve my family’s life but had my 27 years been in management for a Government Agency I could have retired at 47 instead of 63 and be enjoying my 40th year of a fat Government pension. Instead I retired at 65 with the 27 years of service. I have drawn $221.47 each month for 22 years now with zero, none, nada other benefits.  

If “Joe American” working in any position similar to a Government worker had any idea the difference he will get in pension benefits there would be Hell to pay explaining why. I hope President Trump will keep his focus to level the playing field and adjust the Government employee benefits to match private industry. Leave Amazon alone unless they break the law. Get the FBI honest and make every Government agency out there justify their existence. Start with the USPS as I feel certain any successful business in America could make a profit managing them in less than two years. I know I could if I had the funding.

HOW THE INTERNET STARTED

My great friend Ron Jenkins sent me these words of biblical wisdom I had to share with others. I have no idea who searched out these facts.  CB

(according to Biblical scholars and for the non computer literate) 

In ancient Israel, it came to pass that a trader by the name of Abraham Com did take unto himself a healthy young wife by the name of Dorothy.

And Dot Com was a comely woman, large of breast, broad of shoulder and long of leg. Indeed, she was often called Amazon Dot Com.

And she said unto Abraham, her husband, “Why dost thou travel so far from town to town with thy goods when thou cans’t trade without ever leaving thy tent?”

And Abraham did look at her as though she were several saddle bags short of a camel load, but simply said, “How, dear?”

And Dot replied, “I will place drums in all the towns and drums in between to send messages saying what you have for sale, and they will reply telling you who hath the best price. The sale can be made on the drums and delivery made by Uriah’s Pony Stable (UPS).”

Abraham thought long and decided he would let Dot have her way with the drums.

And the drums rang out and were an immediate success. Abraham sold all the goods he had at the top price, without ever having to move from his tent.

To prevent neighboring countries from overhearing what the drums were saying, Dot devised a system that only she and the drummers knew. It was known as Must Send Drum Over Sound (MSDOS), and she also developed a language to transmit ideas and pictures – Hebrew To The People (HTTP).

And the young men did take to Dot Com’s trading as doth the greedy horsefly take to camel dung. They were called Nomadic Ecclesiastical Rich Dominican Sybarites, or NERDS.

And lo, the land was so feverish with joy at the new riches and the deafening sound of drums that no one noticed that the real riches were going to that enterprising drum dealer, Brother William of Gates, who bought off every drum maker in the land. Indeed he did insist on drums to be made that would work only with Brother Gates’ drumheads and drumsticks.

And Dot did say, “Oh, Abraham, what we have started is being taken over by others.”

And Abraham looked out over the Bay of Ezekiel, or e Bay as it came to be known.

He said, “We need a name that reflects what we are.”

And Dot replied, “Young Ambitious Hebrew Owner Operators.”

“YAHOO,” said Abraham.

And because it was Dot’s idea, they named it YAHOO Dot Com.

Abraham’s cousin, Joshua, being the young Gregarious Energetic Educated Kid (GEEK) that he was, soon started using Dot’s drums to locate things around the countryside.

It soon became known as God’s Own Official Guide to Locating Everything (GOOGLE).

That is how it all began!!!

And that’s the truth!
