tea-party-mapOver 2,000 tea parties were held throughout the U.S. on April 15, over 700 of them in major cities.  By all estimates there were overwhelming numbers of attendees at these events, highlighting it as a marked moment in history.  Even in light of all of the other movements (such as the Vietnam War, civil rights, women’s right to vote, etc.) which have all notably marked our history, this is the first time that everyday citizens have rallied in such record numbers.  Even more significant is that the majority of those who attended these Tea Parties had never attended a rally previously.  That’s right.  These were not paid ACLU or ACORN advocates orchestrating a fake grassroots movement.  These were everyday Americans, leaving the comfort of their security, even some taking time off from work, to finally let their voices be heard.  Thousands came out in spite of severe inclement weather.  But that’s not the story.  The story is the story.

 

On April 15th and all day yesterday, no major newspaper or mainstream news station (non-cable) covered this story with any more time or emphasis than they would have a basement flooding in a person’s home.  Network news didn’t cover it, except that NBC personally, on a 3rd grade level, attacked the folks who showed up for such events.  Not so surprising was CNN represented by a female reporter who was blatantly prosecutorial throughout the course of her “interviewing” of Tea Party attendees.  THIS was the story in spite of the fact that this act of so many, even novices, gathering in protest of their government was a truly historical day. 

 

tea-party-protest-chicagoAnd yet how were the acts of these modern-day Patriots portrayed?  With scoffs, and “intellectual” scorns.  Their intelligence was insulted.  Their education was questioned.  Even their virtue and parental capabilities were slandered.  Not by a few, but by the mainstream media.  Does anybody wonder why an “Us vs. Them” mentality has begun to manifest itself in our America?  Better yet, does anyone wonder why newspapers are now begging for a bailout?  Pelosi has the audacity to call these historical efforts “astroturf” contrived by the wealthy.  Really?  Raise your hand if you were compensated one penny to protest at a Tea Party.  Better yet, raise your hand if it actually COST you money to be there.

 

As honest, law-abiding, tax-paying citizens took to the streets to make their rationale voices heard, the cowardly sheep stayed at work on their computers posting anonymous comments as to the caliber of the individuals doing so.  One person commented on the “lack of education” of those who would take such proactive actions.  I ask you—you, who cowers in your cubicle to mock those who stand—just how much education does one need in order to understand that they are being raped and pillaged?  They don’t need to have an understanding of the constitution to know that they’ve got more bills than they have money right now.  They don’t need a PhD to understand that they’ve been laid off of their jobs.  And are you aware, Oh Stupid One, that the majority of the millions of Americans who laid the groundwork of this United States only had the education equivalent of our present fourth grade level? 

 

tea-party-cant-fix-stupidWas the Boston Tea Party of 1773 merely “astroturf,” Pelosi?  In my patriotic, fed up opinion, those who would deride the genuine efforts of April 15th are indeed the enemy of our freedoms.  Regardless of what position they hold, what power they wield, or how much money they make, they are the no different than those who opposed the original Boston Tea Party of 1773, favoring instead the mythical power and influence of the tyrannical King George.

 

Remember this—Tyrants and Traitors of Our Freedom—when the day comes that you find yourself void of the freedoms which you’ve come to take for granted, yea, even that day when the very freedom which permits you to mock and scorn in the name of journalism is eliminated, don’t ask me to defend you, for I will truly “know you not.”  Instead I will be focused and fighting solely for those who have a deep-seeded virtue of Freedom within them.

Joe the Plumber vs. Rick Sanchez—the talking head of CNN.  And the winner is…Joe Wurzelbacher.  On the other hand,  at the risk of sounding like the amateur mass media, Rick Sanchez  is this year’s entrepreneurial putz.

 

In his November 4th interview with the newly famous Joe the Plumber, Rick Sanchez appeared to be as knowledgeable of the abilities of entrepreneurs as the Mr. Clean knows hair care.

 

Mr. Sanchez’s mindless questions of Joe the Plumber demonstrated that he had clearly NOT done his research of this nation’s entrepreneurs.  He joined the mass of misperception when he underestimated entrepreneurs all over the world as indicated by empty-headed questions to Joe Wurzelbacher.  Sanchez’s ignorance was manifested on at least 3 separate lines of questioning.

 

1) “Why would you be so upset about people who clear more than $250,000 a year—having to pay taxes, when you’re nowhere near that category?” 

 

One does not need to live in a leper colony to have sympathy for their plight.  Wurzelbacher made it clear repeatedly that he objected to the principle of the wealthier paying more taxes simply because they had more of it.  Like most entrepreneurs,

 

2) “…you are not in a situation where you’re going to be able to make that money any time soon.”

 

 

Who is this talking bobble head to dish out the socially acceptable level and speed of any person’s achievement or fulfillment in this life?  (business owner or not)

 

The fact of the matter is, every entrepreneur is very near making $250,000.  Many have succeeded in making multiple times that in one day.  Some are content to choose to earn less, and some push themselves to earn more.  There’s no mandate that it must take decades, years or months to earn this kind of income. No initials after your name are required. No special gene pool.  It’s not a secret and it’s accessible to any literate human being in our nation.  It requires applied knowledge, a restlessness with the status quo, and a combination of passion and commitment.   

 

3) “You’re nowhere near being able to buy a business that clears more than $250,000 a year because that would take millions and millions of dollars, right?”

 

Another mistaken assumption.  It does not take millions of dollars to clear $250,000.  In fact, there are many well known business owners who have brought in significantly more than that for significantly less.  Entrepreneurs of all kinds know how to create huge profit margins.  Paul Hartunian, for example, paid $500 for the discarded wood of the Brooklyn Bridge walkway to be delivered to his home.  He then cut the wood up in tiny little square pieces, wrote a killer press release, and made millions of dollars actually selling the Brooklyn Bridge to people all over the world.  To this day he is STILL getting free press about this and subsequent feats of similar style. 

 

Credible information marketers such as Dan Kennedy, Lee Milteer, Michael Cheney, Rich Shefren, Matt Bacak, Shawn Casey, Tellman Knudsen, Jeff Walker, Bill Glazer, Andrew Fox, and countless others regularly clear 7 figures within a matter of days in exchange for a weeks worth of writing and sharing their expertise—and do so repeatedly!   Write, launch, reap, repeat.

 

Here’s the ultimate problem with Sanchez’s skewed vision of the world of capitalism.  He’s forgotten about freedom combined with human potential.  For every story of failure, there’s an enduring story of success in even greater proportions.  In my opinion, there are equal amounts of ways to succeed as there are to stumble. 

 

One of my clients recently earned over $500,000 on one transaction.  Granted, he had to make his way through whole lot of “suspect clients” in the last 9 months to get access to the real deal, but he did so.  And now that he’s accomplished this, no Rick Sanchez of the world can ever convince him that his ideas of success are impossible. 

 

One significant success will breed a confident, unshakable entrepreneur.

 

My hope is that one day entrepreneurs will be viewed as the standard of success, genuine security, and credibility.  In my opinion, they certainly deserve the respect, sincere assistance and accolades more than Wall Street, Big Corporate America, or the sacrosanct banking institutions do.
