Governor Walker Announces!

Much to the pleasure of many Americans and the chagrin of union leaders across the country, Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin finally announced his long awaited Republican candidacy for President of the Unites States! Despite the fact Governor Walker does not have a college diploma – a fact exploited by the liberal press — he is a well-spoken, intelligent and caring man that has the innate ability to speak with people of various economic, ethnic, religious, and political backgrounds, and to unite them in a common cause to make life better for all Americans.

I have had the pleasure of meeting Governor Walker and hearing him speak. Unlike some, he is very personable and when he speaks he does not need sheets of notes in front of him nor a teleprompter. He uses his hands and eyes to embrace the people to whom he is speaking and to make them feel comfortable with his style and message. Additionally, he is comfortable meeting and speaking with people on their own “turf” — whether it be in their neighborhood, their church, or another setting that is comfortable for his audience. His approach is one of honesty and compassion. Governor Walker has used this amicable style to win his first Governor’s election, a recall election orchestrated by big labor the following year, and a second term election in 2014!

Governor Scott Walker understands he has to be seen as a “President of the People” and his campaign style and governing/management abilities show he can excel in these roles, not only by winning re-elections, but taking Wisconsin from a highly indebted, union-controlled state to a debt free, citizen emboldened state. He did this by freeing the citizens from union shackles (see The Decline and Fall of Wis. Unions) and enacting policies that are good for the people and that provide them freedom of choice. Several previous blogs have featured Governor Walker and his victories and successful programs in Wisconsin:

However, I felt that the blog best highlighting Governor Walker as the top Republican candidate for President is Lessons from the Wisconsin Recall. The blog, refreshed below, examines Walker’s techniques and beliefs, which are much like those utilized to defeat the SEIU as chronicled in The Devil at Our Doorstep!

Big Labor took a roundhouse to the chin despite the millions of dollars in member dues spent in an attempt to recall Governor Walker. Conservatives and practical-minded Americans, however, cannot become complacent with this victory. Big Labor showed how desperate it was in orchestrating the offensive recall. Big Labor thumbed its nose at the citizens of Wisconsin and America because it could not win the first election legitimately. In doing so, it resorted to its campaign of misinformation, coercion, propaganda and intimidation to bully its way to victory. Thankfully, Americans are waking up and drawing a line in the sand with Big Labor and all who endorse or utilize these type tactics. Tactics which are uncalled for in modern America!

Interestingly, nearly a third of union members who cast votes in the recall election did so for Governor Walker as did 48 % of voters who live with union members. Additionally, teachers in Wisconsin have been showing their disdain for union tactics as polls of active teachers show that Wisconsin’s teachers positive view of the teachers unions have declined from 58% to 43% and the percentage of teachers with negative views of the unions doubled from 16% to 32%. Furthermore, the fact Wisconsin Unions Saw Ranks Drop Ahead of Recall Vote is another indicator the rank and file members continue to question Big Labor policies and voted ahead of time with their feet! Wisconsin membership in AFSCME fell from 62,818 to 28,745 over the past year. Apparently they don’t like their union dues and their union credit card fees (see Big Labor: Credit Card Profiteers) and interest utilized for political purposes, especially an unnecessary recall election.

Ultimately, What Wisconsin Means is that there is clearly opportunity for a major conservative victory in November. However, a few critical lessons must be remembered and implemented.

1.) It is the economy and we are not stupid! Fiscal Responsibility Trumped Union Power in Wisconsin. Fiscal responsibility must be trumpeted nationwide.

2.) Complacency will end in defeat. Big Labors’ Gasping Dinosaur’s are headed toward extinction. Remember, desperate people do desperate things. Expect a down and dirty fight to the finish, which must be countered with professionalism, character and ethics.

3.) The Conservatives and Tea Party countered the union foot soldiers with an effective ground game. Now it must be done nationwide.

4.) Don’t be afraid to expose the misinformation, propaganda, and coercion for what it is, and counter with common sense and the truth! The majority of people will wake up and understand.

5.) Don’t buckle to the intimidation tactics. Look the bully in the eye and smile.

6.) Don’t be afraid to expose the opposition’s agenda, socialism through the catch phrase “Social Justice”.

7.) Don’t be afraid to expose the truth about the opponents past affiliations. A person or entity’s past affiliations speak volumes.

8.) Take the offensive. The best defense is a strong offense.

9.) Use the unions/democrats misuse of members’ dues against them.

10.) Don’t buy into the ruse that the “Citizens United” case created an unfair playing field for republicans. Expose the fact that it merely evened a playing field that Big Labor had been exploiting for years at the expense of membership dues.

These lessons must be learned and implemented if The Decline of American Exceptionalism is to be reversed in November 2016! Listen closely to Governor Walker, as it is truly worth the time! We must Identify the “Devils” at Our Doorstep who are intent on Taking American Freedoms! America, we are at War! Armageddon is at Hand! Please Wake up and support the man who has the backbone to reclaim America’s greatness, Scott Walker!

The Evolution of The Devil at Our Doorstep

In October 2013, I published a blog about my second year college basketball coach, a coach who ultimately served as the impetus for my leaving Wabash College. Prior to being hired as head basketball coach, he was a janitor at a college in Pennsylvania, as confirmed in the following article Twilight on the Wabash. Such an ironic title, as Snowy’s hiring turned out to be my twilight on the Wabash!

Recently, I had the pleasure of re-uniting with Rusty Nichols, the coach that initially recruited me to Wabash, and whose departure was ultimately the catalyst for Snowy being hired. Rusty visited and toured our facilities, followed by lunch, during which time I related how his departure from coaching after my first year at Wabash triggered a series of events that changed my life and career path as described in the The Destiny of The Devil at Our Doorstep. Rusty was incredulous by what had transpired, but was complimentary of the path taken and the accomplishments achieved. He agreed it is a story that America needs to know and that The Devil at Our Doorstep: The Movie would be appropriate. Now, as the story goes…

As a pragmatic businessman I have never believed in coincidences. As a religious person who believes in God I have always believed each of us are placed on this earth for a purpose. An event occurred this past week that solidified my belief in both.

At the engagement party of a friend’s daughter, I happened to meet a former local sports writer for the Indianapolis Star newspaper. As we were conversing, I mentioned to him that I played basketball in high school and went to Wabash College on a basketball/academic scholarship and transferred after my second year. The coach who recruited me left after the first year and I was dissatisfied with his replacement after playing for him for one year. Consequently, I went back to the school that was my second choice and ask them if they would still honor the scholarship they had initially offered. The school, Tri-State University, agreed.

Unfortunately, due to the transfer, I had to change my major to pre-med as Tri-State did not offer degrees in education. In essence, I went from preparing to be a teacher and a coach — my life’s dream — to preparing for life as a doctor at the advice of my counselor. I received a B.S in Biology and went to Ball State University where I received a Masters Degree in Micro Biology. I applied for Indiana Medical School and was place third on the waiting list due to the fact my grades at Wabash my first semester were just average. I subsequently went to work for Central Soya Company headquartered in my home town of Ft. Wayne, Indiana. I started in its experimental feed mill and eventually became a plant turn around specialist. I was able to accomplish this through creating a team atmosphere and treating employees fairly. Interestingly enough they were all union facilities! I held this position for about eight years, and the position required several transfers around the country. When I ended up back in Indianapolis, Indiana, I decided to reject the next request to move yet again, and to leave the company. I eventually become the Indiana General Manager for a regional janitorial company, a position I held for three and a half years before I left to start my own company.

Upon relaying my story to the writer, he mentioned that he knew the coach Wabash had hired, and understood why I decided to leave. He then mentioned that this coach’s background was kind of unclear. Being the inquisitive person I am, the next day I did a search for this coach on the internet to learn more about his background. To my surprise when I found his information I learned more about my destiny than I did his. Prior to being hired as the varsity basketball coach at Wabash he was a janitor for a college in Pennsylvania!

How ironic is it that a man who became my coach and influenced my decision to transfer from one college to another, and in the process forced a change of my major from being a teacher to a doctor, was a janitor! A profession I migrated to as General Manager for a regional janitorial company and a position I would assume myself when I left and started EMS in 1989 where my first account was my insurance agents 5,000 square foot office, which I cleaned myself! EMS grew from that small account to a national company that today provides services in 36 states. We have constantly strived to stand as company that does the right things for it employees and its customers.

Ultimately, due to our growth, we attracted the attention of the SEIU who attempted to force unionize EMS employees as well as other employees of janitorial companies throughout the Midwest with its patented Death by a Thousand Cuts and Corporate Campaign tactics. Tactics designed to force me to sign a Neutrality Agreement, which would have eliminated my employees rights through a secret ballot election to determine if they wanted to be represented by the SEIU, and instead allow the SEIU to use the intimidation tactics of Card Check to force unionize them.

As a religious man and a firm believer in American freedoms I could not morally give up my employees’ rights and allow this to happen. My company and I fought a 4-year war with the SEIU to preserve our employees rights and defeated them! Subsequently I wrote the two books, The Devil at My Doorstep and The Devil at Our Doorstep, which have been instrumental in the passage of “right to work” laws in Indiana and Michigan, and have provided hope and support for employees across the country in extricating themselves from big labor abuse. In fact, my first book “The Devil at My Doorstep” Was Recently Introduced to the Supreme Court  in defense of an employee who was subjected to the awful intimidation tactics of a Corporate Campaign.

I sincerely believe all of us are placed on earth by our creator for a purpose. Some destinies are more subtle than others, however it appears mine through divine intervention, was to expose the atrocities of big labor’s Gasping Dinosaurs and help preserve American freedoms! Ironically this was preordained years ago through my Lord and Savior’s message delivered through a coach, I mean a janitor! The lord in his infinite wisdom recognized years ago the course of history would have to be changed, and The Devil at Our Doorstep revealed. Simply put, without a new coach (janitor), there would have been no college change or career change, and in turn, no EMS janitorial company, no SEIU attack, and most importantly, no win for employee rights! Ironically he used a janitor to begin the chain of events to allow me the opportunity to expose big labor’s agenda and start a movement to protect employee rights!

California Sinking?

For decades California has been under political and financial siege by labor unions partnering with state politicians to press their political agendas. The poor financial condition of the state of California is indicative of the symbiotic relationship of labor and politics which serves to benefit each other to the detriment of its citizens (see Symbiotic Relationship that Short Changes Americans). Despite the fact that many Californians recognize that big labor represents an oppressive cost which is destroying the state, they are currently fighting a losing battle and it continues to get progressively worse (see Big Labor Racket Being Exposed and The elephant in the political spending room). Recently, union members themselves became concerned of Big Labor’s agenda and began mounting a push back (see Push Back Against Big Labor’s Agenda).
In June 2014, Mariam Noujaim — whose fight against union corruption is documented in The Devil at Our Doorstep — and her fellow SEIU Local 1000 members ran a campaign to have members’ dues reduced by the amount the SEIU used for political purposes. Overcoming tremendous odds, they won a major victory as almost 50% of the members had their dues reduced by nearly 50% (see Rank and File Union Membership Post Victories). However, Mariam and her partners continue to believe that the SEIU’s use of dues money is tied to its political ambitions. They are once again mounting a campaign to get the rest of Local 1000 members to sign up and reduce the SEIU’s political money reserves. Please see the Local 1000 voting form below and help Mariam any way you can!

The SEIU is seeking out new allies to press its political agenda in California. They are now reaching out to Republican politicians to do their dirty work. In an excellent recently published blog, Unionization of the Republican GOP Part 1 & 2, talk show host Elise Richmond exposed the fact that unions, especially the SEIU, are making significant political contributions to the California Republican Party to elect or re-elect Republican candidates and, in turn, expect laws passed favorable to forced unionization or lucrative public collective bargaining agreements. Case in point:

“Republican Assemblyman Chad Mayes broke with his caucus on a union-supported bill. On March 24, he voted in favor of Assembly Bill 211, which puts the collective bargaining rights of all in-home support service workers — those who treat the blind, elderly and disabled where they live — into the hands of a statewide authority starting in 2016.”

In summary, California Assembly Bill 211 will allow forced unionization of home healthcare workers by making them state employees and thereby becoming subject to the unionization efforts of the SEIU. Reeling from loss of home healthcare workers in Illinois due to the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) ruling in Harris vs. Quinn, the SEIU is attempting to rebound in California. In Harris v. Quinn, the SCOTUS handed down a narrow ruling that home healthcare workers could not be forced to pay union dues. The ruling stopped short of declaring that no public employees should be forced to be part of the union or pay union affiliation/representation fees by being designated as state employees as is the thrust of Assembly Bill 211.
The obvious question is: “Why would Republican politicians in California — and for that matter across the country — accept political contributions from the unions and support such legislation?” The answer is that unions are using the signature SEIU’s Death by a Thousand Cuts Corporate Campaign used against business owners to allow forced unionization of their employees to intimidate republican politicians into supporting their agendas! Most business owners found it much easier to capitulate than to suffer the persecution and intimidation tactics of the unions and their foot soldiers. It is not surprising then that politicians are falling onto the same trap. “Trap” is the correct word, because this is all about control and turning America into a Socialistic totalitarian run country by the labor bosses and their friend in the White House (see Wake-Up and Connect the Dots… Obama Wants Us to Sign a Neutrality Agreement!). Truly, It is Time for Republicans to Go On the Offensive. Americans need to be educated, and ultimately find the intestinal fortitude to expose Union Hypocrisy, and to stand up and punch the bullies in the nose in order to Restore America’s Prosperity before all is lost! The question Californians and ultimately all Americans must ask is Do They Think We Are Idiots? Is California, and ultimately America, sinking? Unfortunately, the answer is yes, and we must realize The Taking of American Freedoms are at hand. We are at War! Armageddon is Here! Please Wake Up!

Union Hypocrisy

It is truly unfortunate that labor unions, once a true force for protecting employee rights — as described succinctly in The Devil at Our Doorstep — have become nothing more than Gasping Dinosaurs, bent on avoiding extinction at the cost of the very members they are supposed to protect (further illustrated in Big Labor Conundrum). The preponderance of this dilemma is big labor bosses’ objective of increasing membership growth (see US Union Membership Sinking, Except for Managers: Pew Study) to pad their own pockets and press their political agendas. This is not not based on social justice as they would attempt to have you believe, but rather the fundamental transformation of the United States of America to a socialistic/communist country because It’s All About Control! In fact, big labor hypocrisy has once again been brought to light on several fronts this past week, and is simply continuing the philosophy of “do as I say and not as I do.”

First, the UAW who has been unsuccessful in forced unionism tactics at the Volkswagen plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee (see UAW fails (for now) to strip VW employees of secret-ballot election) has truly shown its colors in Alabama, as witnessed by the fact Frustrated Alabama Workers Just Can’t Get Rid Of Their Union and that Johnson Controls employees in Florence withdraw from union. The following quote sums up the UAW hypocrisy, and the hypocrisy of the current Administration, who are bedfellows through political contributions and political paybacks. This has been further illustrated by the President’s use of the Rogue NLRB to further protect big labors objective of growth through intimidation and forced unionization.

Mark Mix, president of the National Right to Work Foundation, said in a statement Thursday.

“The [National Labor Relations Board] NLRB has stacked the deck against workers seeking to remove unwanted unions, allowing union officials to throw out results that don’t go their way and hold onto power.”

“The group, which offers free legal assistance to workers struggling with their union, has been helping to represents Ginger Estes, the NTN-Bower employee who filed for the original decertification election to remove the United Auto Workers.”

“Ginger Estes’ saga highlights an ugly double standard in federal labor law,” continued Mix. “While the activist Obama NLRB makes it easier to organize workplaces by enacting new ‘ambush election’ rules to get unions certified, union lawyers are allowed to game the system by blocking or overturning workers’ votes against unwanted unions.”

So what have the UAW Gasping Dinosaurs come up with as their solution? More of the “do as I say, not as I do” hypocrisy by advocating lower tiered union wage scales so they can induce companies to hire more employees that they can unionize as seen in the Report: UAW and Detroit carmakers eyeing 3rd wage tier to pump up UAW membership. What happened to social justice and elevating the middle class?What happened to the “Fight for Fifteen” minimum wage? More Union Hypocrisy (see Union Bosses Use Fast-Food Workers For Personal Gain)!

Meanwhile The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) unlawfully attempted to have one of its members fired from their job because the employee was responsible for the unions decertification (see AFSCME Chapter Unlawfully Tried to Cause Employee Firing During Decertification). Obviously, AFSCME was more concerned about maintaining the union’s dues collection than protecting employee rights and being a true representative of employee concerns. Ironically, this comes from a government employee union who has the advantage in securing forced union membership of government employees. One would think AFSCME would concentrate on member concerns to stave off decertification rather than padding its own pockets!

Finally, the Same Old SEIU was at it again as it was truly caught in a “do as I say, not as I do” moment by none other than another union the UAW! Unions have always pontificated that they should never utilize nonunion vendors. Evidently the SEIU is feeling the pinch of declining membership and the reduced union dues forced upon them by last year’s NGO vote (see California SEIU Members Score Multiple Victories Over “SEIU 1%”). The distressed SEIU Local 1000 in California recently had election ballots printed by a non-union shop, but had the printer place the UAW’s logo on the ballots to make it appear it was a union print shop. The UAW immediately called out the SEIU and threatened a lawsuit unless the SEIU agrees to the terms in the following letter, which included a $100,000 payment to the UAW for unlawful use of its UAW logo bug – Union Label Cease and Desist.

It is woefully apparent that big labor is not concerned about its membership, but that It’s All About the Dues Money! for their own purposes and political agendas. They are supported by the current administration at the cost of American jobs, lower wages and a flagging economy as described in Breaking News: The Ambush is Upon Us which is picking up steam as chronicled in Ambush election update: 40 percent reduction in campaign time, almost 100 percent more petitions. When Will Congress and the Main Stream Media Wake Up and put and realize with the unions, It’s All About Perception! We need to put an immediate stop to this travesty before it is too late! Wake-Up and Connect the Dots… Obama Wants Us to Sign a Neutrality Agreement with his big labor buddiesIt is imperative for Americans to watch what this Administration and its big labor allies are doing and not just listen to what they are saying!

It’s All About Perception!

Recently, the “Fight for Fifteen” demonstrations at McDonald’s and Wal-Mart stores across the country have sparked empathy in the news coverage by the main stream media. The liberal coverage of these outlets portrays employees as being taken advantage of and in need of increased wages and benefits. As with most things in life, it is prudent to do the research to make sure we have all the facts, and that they are presented honestly and concisely. It is imperative we don’t rely on our political leanings and that we not have the proverbial “wool pulled over our eyes.” Every American, should re-check the position or “window” from which they the view things, as succinctly demonstrated in the following.

The Window from Which We Look
A young couple moves into a new neighborhood.
The next morning while they are eating breakfast, the young woman sees her neighbor hanging the wash outside.
”That laundry is not very clean”, she said. “She doesn’t know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better laundry soap.”
 Her husband looked on, but remained silent.

 Every time her neighbor would hang her wash to dry, the young woman would make the same comments.


About one month later, the woman was surprised to see a
 nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband,”Look, she has learned how to wash correctly. I wonder who taught her this.”

 The husband said, “I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows.”



And so it is with life. What we see when watching others it depends on the purity of the window through which we look! 

“Fight for Fifteen” and the so called “Work Centers” that are championing this cause — providing their own version of training and assistance — are nothing more than union fronts where Union Bosses Use Fast-Food Workers For Personal Gain. Unions are pouring millions of dollars into these “Work Centers” as a method of unionizing the fast food workers across America! It is unfortunate and despicable that The SEIU’s Support for Wage Hikes are based on Self Interests and that these Protest Organizers Pay Consulting Fees, however, even more astonishing is that the SEIU has funneled $15 million into the Fight for $15 campaign! This sleight of hand by the SEIU and other unions demands that we check the purity of the window from which we view the true intentions of these unions and this Administration. Even some of the union members are cleaning windows as demonstrated in Union Members Are Getting Tired of the Anti-Walmart Campaigns.

Essentially, these worker centers are union branches. Labor Unions are organized as 501(c)(5) entities, and as 501(c)(5) entities they cannot receive tax-deductible contributions. However, many Worker Centers are organized as 501(c)(3) charities, which means they can receive tax-deductible donations and they are not accountable to the workers they claim to represent.

In other words, they are conduits for labor unions in disguise. They provide the labor unions with benefits which they could not otherwise independently receive. Labor unions are a dying breed, they are nothing more than Gasping Dinosaurs trying to avoid extinction, and the worker centers are proof!

Another benefit to the “Fight for Fifteen” demonstrations is that they serve to Deflect Attention from the Rogue NLRB and its attempt to establish Card Check through Regulation vs. Legislation with the new ambush election law, designed by this Administration to allow unions to rapidly force unionize employees and employers across the country, further described in Reprise: Beware the Ambush! It is nothing more than a payback to the union bosses for political contributions and votes!

The bottom line is, while America’s top labor union bosses raked in millions in 2014 for their own pockets and to press their political agendas, it has become apparent that Millennials don’t want to join unions! They are waking up to the fact that Labor Unions’ True Motivation comes from the Dues Money. Union bosses want to line their own pockets and promote their political agendas! Subsequently, union bosses are waking up to Why 78 Million Millennials Are Choosing Non-Union Jobs and are desperate to invent ways to force unionize them in order to survive, which is what the “Fight for Fifteen” is truly all about!

It is time for all Americans to wake up and see big labor’s intentions through a crystal clear window and not through distorted, long held political viewpoints or beliefs. Big labor and its claims are all about perception not reality! They could care less about these employees! When Will Congress and the Main Stream Media Wake Up and unmask this misperception and protect the freedoms of all Americans from this Administration and the SEIU’s Persuasion of Power?

Breaking News: The Ambush is Upon Us

On March 31, 2015, President Obama vetoed the Congressional Bill that would have reversed the Rogue NLRB’s Ambush Election Rule.

Unbelievably, and likely in support of unions, this was not reported on national media yesterday. This could create havoc for businesses, who will be unprepared for the mass onslaught of unionization when this rule goes into effect on April 14, 2015. Businesses need to prepare now! You can be sure that unions are already staking out non-union businesses and employees across the nation. When the clock strikes midnight on April 14, 2015, you can expect to see mass union election petitions all across the country!

This information was confirmed by the Labor Legislative Aid to a prominent Member of Congress in the following statement:

President Obama vetoed S.J.Res. 8 this morning.  Considering that the measure originally passed on party lines, it is highly unlikely that Congress will have the votes to override the President’s veto.

This is an urgent request that all Americans call their  Senate Representatives and demand they override the veto! Democrats and Republicans alike must work to fight the Ambush Election Rule in order to save employees across the country from threats, intimidation, and ultimately forced unionization!

The blog below further explains the detrimental effects that this ruling will have on American businesses and employees!

The Reason for “The Devil at Our Doorstep”

As I continue to write blogs, appear on radio shows, perform speeches and discuss my book, The Devil at Our Doorstep, I am frequently asked, “Why did you write The Devil at Our Doorstep?” and, “Why do you continue to champion this and spend so much of your time and energy?” The simple answer is, because I love the United States of America. The freedom that it stands for, the values of the republic, and the opportunity created by our Free Enterprise/Capitalistic system. The United States has created more prosperity for all the people of the world than all other civilizations/nations combined in history! I am concerned, however, that this great nation’s future is in peril, and I want to do my part in educating Americans as to what is transpiring so that we can eliminate The Devil at Our Doorstep and reinstill God in our great country!

I was once naïve to what was transpiring in this great country. I was focused on taking care of my family and my business, and intent on doing what was legal and what I felt was right. However, when the SEIU raised its ugly head and utilized politicians, clergy members, little kids, misinformation, rhetoric, intimidation and public attacks, endemic to SEIU’s “Persuasion of Power,” in an attempt to force unionize my employees, I woke up to what is truly transpiring in this great country. I realized that the same rhetoric and tactics utilized by the SEIU extended to the political scene and were being utilized to brainwash naïve and ideological Americans with the intent of ‘fundamentally transforming America,” as espoused by our illustrious President. At times, I have struggled with how to best document the reasons I continue to fight the battle, and work to educate Americans to the true objectives of the Union bosses and their political allies. However, a recent encounter with a young man working as an appliance repairman provided me the opportunity to express my desire to educate Americans before it is too late!

My wife and I hired this young gentleman to repair an appliance in our kitchen. On the day he arrived to replace the faulty part I had the opportunity to engage him in a short conversation before he informed me the part he had brought was not the correct part and that he would have to return the next day with the correct part. During this short conversation, he brought to light two interesting facts. First, that his previous job was with a janitorial company as an Area Manager; second, that his goal was to start his own appliance repair company because he wanted to treat customers and employees the right way. I was instantly intrigued and told him about my business, how I started it, the growth and the eventual attack by the SEIU. Since he had another appointment I kept it short and told him we could discuss it further upon his return the next morning.

The next morning the young man arrived around 9:30am with the correct part. As he began the installation process, he told me that he had been on the website and had watched my speech to the “Heritage Foundation.” He was astounded at the tactics used by the SEIU. He indicated that he shared our values of placing employees and customers at the forefront, and commented that in his short experience, he felt many business owners/entrepreneurs lacked the passion to grow the business and do the right things, which he felt from our conversations was the root of our company’s success.

I thanked him for his comments and told him I would provide him a signed copy of my book so he could understand that the book was not just about the SEIU’s attack on my company, but how to build a business, family values, ethics and religious values.  I explained that it highlighted the fact that America’s Republic free enterprise system allowed people to be successful based on their work ethic, desire, persistence and passion as well as overcome threats to themselves, their business and our country!

I mentioned to him that I was not concerned about his political bent, but wanted to forewarn him of things in the book with which he may struggle. I mentioned up front that I am traditionally conservative and voted that away most of the time, but primarily for candidates I felt were best for the local, state or federal office. Furthermore, I brought this up because he may or may not find parts of it offensive such as President Obama’s relationship with the SEIU and their collective socialist background as related in my recent blog, Wake-Up and Connect the Dots… Obama Wants Us to Sign a Neutrality Agreement! I did this because, despite the fact he wanted to start his own business, liked what I had to say and respected EMS’s business philosophy, certain comments he made indicated a liberal position. However, I was astonished by his response to my comments.

He looked me square in the eyes and said that in 2008 he was prepared to vote for Barack Obama, because of his rhetoric, his smooth oratory skills and his seeming concern for all Americans. He then told me an incident that transformed his thinking and changed his mind. One evening after work he had dinner at a local pub and spent a long time that evening imbibing with some ladies he met who worked for the Obama campaign. As the evening wore on and the ladies became more loosed lipped they began to expose the real Barack Obama and the fact that despite the skills mentioned above that he truly was not for America, but for himself and that they personally would not be voting for him! Wow! The young man was astounded and woke up to the reality of President Obama’s tactics, and still clearly sees today, that this President does not love America as recently broadcasted by former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani. It was like I was hit with a lightning bolt as these young ladies employed by the Obama campaign delivered to this young man the same message, which is the reason for The Devil at Our Doorstep and subsequent blogs, I have been attempting to deliver to the American people ever since I was awoken by the SEIU and the rhetoric and tactics they taught to President Obama — who has a blatant disregard for the Constitution and separation of powers.

It is apparent that people like the President and organizations like the SEIU understand that there is a large percentage of the population that is naïve and easily misled and their collective efforts are to brainwash these people to their thinking, and to use them in their attempt to ensure The Decline of American Exceptionalism, its free enterprise system, and to replace it with socialism/totalitarianism. All Americans need to wake up now and understand before it is too late that The Problem with Socialism is Socialism! Please take this young man’s story to heart and realize we are war and it is worth the time Identifying The Devil at Our Doorstep who is intent on The Taking of American Freedoms! Wake up America, we are at War! Armageddon is at Hand! Please Wake up!
