Entrepreneur

Entrepreneurs have played a key role in the establishment and success of the United States. From its earliest history, entrepreneurs funded the establishment of the English colonies, built its commercial and industrial might throughout the Nineteenth and early Twentieth Centuries. It's only in the later decades of the Twentieth Century and continuing into the Twenty-First Century that government has stifled entrepreneurship and the nation and its economy have suffered accordingly.

In an earlier blog post, I recommended The Myth of the Robber Barons in which the author describes the difference between political and commercial entrepreneurs. Much to my shame, I am forced to admit that I did work as a political entrepreneur for a brief time. Hopefully, I redeemed myself as a commercial entrepreneur during the greater part of my life.

Here's a fun way to spend a few minutes when you have nothing better to do. Just stumble around the Internet. You'll be surprised at the things you find. Fun things. Interesting things. Things you would most likely have never thought of searching for. I have.

Here's a hint: Don't do as I do. You would never want a marriage like my first one. You would never want to use the same numbers I use when purchasing lottery tickets. You would never want to reinstall a computer and go through the trials and tribulations that I've experienced this week. Trust me, you really wouldn't...
 
 

Election 2014

I've heard it said that a young person who is not liberal has no heart and an older one who is not conservative has no brain. I suppose that makes me a heartless old fart. I was never a liberal. I have been a registered Democrat on occasion when I lived where Democrats dominated. It was my goal to be able to vote in primary elections for whichever Democrat was going to win the general election. However, I could never register as a Democrat again, no matter the consequences. That party has sold its soul, promising anything to anybody, even when conflicting promises are made to opposing forces, just to build a coalition to win elections.

The following video gives me hope that conservatism is on the rise. I have enough hope to return to the political fray for the first time in 50 years and work for conservative candidates. We all need them, even those who are foolish enough to follow their hearts forgetting that "the road to hell is paved with the best intentions".

So many injustices, so little justice. It's impossible to get through life, especially a long-lived one, without encountering stories of injustice such as this one.
This is simply one of those stories I had to share beyond the social media. Thus, I have shared it here in hopes that it will receive even wider distribution. If nothing else, please pass it on to your social audience and reblog.

I was really enjoying video blogging and felt that I was improving. Visitors to my blog seem to think so, too. Then my computer went on a holiday and it may have appeared that so did I. Well, I haven't. I've been struggling to repair it by any means possible short of gutting it. Well, nothing worked. Thus, I am left no other option. Gutting will occur this coming weekend. Until then, I can't produce any more videos.
I'll return to my series on entrepreneurship when I can video record them. For now, I'm going to provide you with some insight into my next novel. The manuscript has been completed for several months now. Packaging it – titling it, producing a cover, and crafting some promotional materials – seems to be more difficult than writing it.

The new novel is set in Korea during the time of the “Police Action” there, otherwise known as “The Forgotten War”. I have mounds of research for those who share my interest in history. There's enough for many blog postings. Hopefully the cover reveal will follow soon.

Please be patient. I promise that I'll be here the rest of this week with other good stories to tell.

Yes, I'm repeating myself. I hate computers. The message bears repeating, especially after the events of today. It seems that my computer was compelled to add insult to injury. After several attempts to repair it myself, the computer sent me away and repaired itself.
