4/24/2017    Regarding changes to the tax code, I would draw attention to the fact that we would be smart to focus                                 much more effort on collecting the personal income taxes that are due. This effort might include                                         educating the public on how to pay taxes, and employers on how to withhold taxes due from paychecks.                             The Federal Tax Code, which provides guidance on federal tax law has become enormously complicated.                           It now contains over 70,000 pages.  What to do about these 70,000 pages?  Rollback to 1980?  Is that a                             possible route?  I understand that changes must have been seen as necessary, but can we rollback to the                           taxcode of 1980 and then amend?

4/24/2017   Carl Vinson Carrier Strike Group and the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) commenced an at- sea bilateral exercise in the Philippine Sea amid tensions from North Korea.  Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruiser USS Lake Champlain and USS Michael Murphy are part of the American strike group.

4/21/2017     Gary Cohn, speaking at the Institute of International Finance Washington Policy Summit spoke of                                      privatizing the building of  infastructure , such as power supply installations.

Earthquake in Oklahoma  9/2/2016

While there is some controversy over the connection between "fracking" and the increase in frequency of earthquakes in Oklahoma and surrounding areas, if I were President, I would order the shut down of all wastewater wells.  Owners could then take the opportunity to demonstrate that fracking is not causing weakness to the substructure which is resulting in increasing frequency of earthquakes. 

Trump or Clinton.  Let's see who wins. I am "America's Win", but could not get out on T.V. and/or the newspapers. Both Clinton and Trump would make a terrible President.  Neither candidate has a grasp on how to fix our enormous problems. With either candidate as President, this nation would fall.  As went so many other nations, so would we go. These candidates are not up to the job.  Other countries lend us money thinking that we will elect the right President. That President is me.  Just ask our lenders.  But I am not on the ballot.  I have been blocked.  What could happen in this election, other than Trump or Clinton winning on November 8th?  I know that the future of America is at stake, and that if either of these candidates becomes President, America will fail.

If I were in the President's position, I would use a multi-pronged approach to the economy.  I would view the economic situation as fragile, since so may of our working people are in minimum wage, unskilled jobs.  Adding to the burden, many of these jobs are currently welfare jobs, meaning that the government pays the salary.  We do not have the number of high paying jobs, that is income tax producing jobs that we once did.   Where are our high risk, high income decision makers?  The technology sector is thriving and pushing forward nicely, but is not a money maker either at the corporate level nor at the employee level.  Entertainment, i.e. T.V., is an important category, but how does it make money?  Communications providers, i.e. telecommunications providers is a good category, and the government collects taxes from it.  It takes money to run a country. We have 90 million people in this country not working. 

So, 1st in planning the multi-pronged approach to working the economy is a critical analyis of where we are now.  

What is in the plus column for us as a nation?  I see the Trans-Pacific Trade Pact as providing long reaching, if unforseen benefits.  Richard Nixon opened trade with China in the late 1960's.  Who could have forseen that they would, by the 2000's be a critical source of loan money for the U.S.?  The fourteen member trade alliance smoothes the way for exports as well as imports, creating jobs and contributing to the gross national product.

Also in the plus column is our aerospace industry.  Not much of an investment opportunity to the public, but a stong industry sector in terms of tax revenues for good old Uncle Sam.

I see our people as a plus.  People here want to work.  I do not believe in job creation in the Democratic tradition. When jobs have been created in a Democratic administration, they have been government jobs.  Fine, perhaps, in the past, but I do not support job creation in that sense in these times.  Jobs in business and industry are paid for by the business or industry, not paid for by the government. We need these kinds of jobs to carry on as a Democratic Republic.  I think that government jobs should be only 27% of all jobs in the United States.

The cause of today's explosion of the spacecraft readying to be launched by the aerospace company SpaceX remains a mystery.  The launch was to take place from Cape Canaveral, Florida.  I did not know that we had civilian space launch in the U.S.  Do we regulate this activity?

Congratulations to Hillary Clinton on the nomination.


I oppose the nomination of Hillary Clinton because I think that if nominated, she could easily become President.  This would be an enormous disaster for the United States, and our trading partners.

I am asking the appropriate Washington Court to make me the Nominee of the Democratic National Convention, as Hillary Clinton cannot legally accept the nomination because of her criminal record.  The nation is in for a surprise, a good one.

The events reported in the news regarding a possible overthrow of the government of Turkey would cause me, as President, to keep abreast of unfolding events. 7/15/'16

Protests, Arrests, Police Shootings

"I still enjoy watching a batter successfully cross home plate, but nothing thrills me more than seeing the Holy Spirit at work in hearts as the Gospel is carried into stadiums, across the airwaves and the world."

Rev. Billy Graham

I will be at the Space Shuttle Exhibit at the Intrepid Air and Space Museum in New York on Monday, July 4th from 3 p.m. until 4 p.m. I would very much like it if at least one delegate to the Convention were there to see me, so that I am no longer "sight unseen".  I am aiming for the nomination, which is a critical hurdle.  If I do not get the Democratic Nomination, I do not win the election in November.

I have decided to call an old friend, Chelsea Kehde, who is a Democratic National Convention delegate to ask her to bring some delegates to meet me on July 4th at the Intrepid Museum in New York.  As of right now, I am sight unseen.  I will call her on July 1, when I have exact details about tickets/times.

Congratulations, Gay Pride.

I am much saddened by the mass shooting in Orlando, Florida this week.  On the matter of increasing gun control, I will classify assault rifles military weapons, unavailable to civilians.

Margaret Elizabeth Schweigert has begun an effort to secure the Democrat nomination through the Nation's primary system coupled with election law. She has made claim to Democratic Nominee.  6/1/'16
