Operation Pinkslip

December 20, 2010

Well, no one has ever accused me of sitting around waiting to be robbed. But that’s what we’re all doing–sitting around, waiting for both so-called parties in Congress and the puppet in the White House to rob us of our country on behalf of their ringleader, George Soros. They would murder America, if we let them.

All this time, since 2008, we’ve been REACTING to the Soros/Obama plan instead of ACTING on our own plan and in our own best interests.

We’re playing the part of willing victims, just like Soros/Obama expects us to do. And since I am not a victim, but an American, and I’m not one to nitpick without offering a solution, I propose OPERATION PINKSLIP.

Granted, the Soros/Obama regime has planned for every contingency. Or so they think. If we go for our guns, we get martial law. If we wait like good little mutton entrees to “vote” in 2012, we get more of the same. If we even get to 2012 before any number of manufactured crises kick in–food shortage, currency collapse, economic and political retardation and death.

These Progressive traitors, these radicals praying for violence, have every avenue covered except one–PEACE.

Peace is a beautiful weapon. Ask Mahatma Ghandi and Martin Luther King, Jr. If goons strike violently at any one member of your peaceful army, they show their cowardice and serve only to bring you more recruits.

Soros/Obama and the Progressives in Congress fear our PEACE.

I suggest that in the Spring, those patriots who would dare emulate our Forefathers should start out for Washington DC with the express goal of firing all 535 members of Congress as well as the marxist in the White House and all his minions. We converge on the steps of the Capitol and at the White House on July 4, 2011, by the millions, we issue our pinkslips and refuse to leave until our recently discharged employees do.

In the meantime, those who cannot physically join us can remain at home, organizing new elections for the recently vacated seats as well as the residence on Pennsylvania Avenue.

Progressives need violence to effect their FINAL SOLUTION to the AMERICAN PROBLEM.

So, we must give them what they cannot fight–PEACE. We must, in effect, shut this country down to keep our Constitution, our liberties, and our children’s futures intact. Soros/Obama will shut our country down in their own best interests, so we might as well preempt them and their plans.

What the hell do we have to lose? Soros/Obama will take everything from us if we continue to REACT like good little victims instead of ACTING like the Americans we are, and ACTING PEACEFULLY en masse in our own best interests.

So, pass the word. PEACE is a beautiful weapon, and a revolution fought with PEACE as our SWORD AND SHIELD results in far fewer casualties than any armed uprising.

Operation Pinkslip. July 4. And please do, write your congressmen and tell them we’re coming. The idea of millions of American employers paying a visit to DC to fire their treasonous employees might serve as enough of a deterrent to make Operation Pinkslip entirely unnecessary.

But don’t count on it.

Oh, and by the way, MERRY CHRISTMAS.

If We Would Fight

October 3, 2010

If we would fight for our nation’s survival, our national soul, then don’t we have, not only the right, but the duty to appeal to the highest authority?

Can all of us who are equal before God equally call on God for relief?

Why, yes, we can. Hmmm…

The story of Lot assures us that God will absolutely, without fail, save whatever’s worth saving. Once he decides to step in, of course.

Are we worth saving? Is America?

Do the personal freedoms of millions mean more to our Creator than the greed of a few global idiots? Do we only need ask God to step in?

Funny how God hears the heartfelt whispers of a patriot over the incessant roar of crowds.

Why I Love My Publisher, Jigsaw Press

May 24, 2008

The following is a recent post Jigsaw Press’s CEO (also my editor) made to a publisher’s listserv when the subject of contracts, bankruptcies, and authors losing their rights came up. You gotta love the rationale. I sure do.

To my way of thinking, these contracts between writers and publishers exist for a number of reasons, none of them very brilliant or inspiring when you really look at the issue. I’m going to be blunt here.

Contracts exist:
1. To protect the author from being screwed.
2. To protect the publisher from being screwed.
3. To enrich lawyers, beginning with that first one way back who saw an opportunity to capitalize on distrust between two parties and suggested they put their agreement on paper.
4. To give the bankruptcy court an “asset” to “grab” on behalf of creditors.
5. To ensure timely payment of royalties.
6. To keep an author from jumping ship.

There are more less than stellar reasons, I’m sure, but do any of you see one item in the above list that implies trust or engenders loyalty? I don’t. In fact, quite the opposite. The proliferation of contracts, their increasing complexity in hope of covering “all the bases” is simply more evidence of a society crumbling into ruin. We are only as good as our signatures on paper. Our word, our characters, mean nothing any more.

A dispute over a contract right out of the gate when I started my business forced me to give this issue some serious thought. I personally do not want to work with anyone who thinks that I, as a publisher, am going to screw them, nor do I want to work with people who aren’t good for their word. A person who demands a contract can just take it down the road as far as I and my business are concerned. Because of my personal belief that God, no matter who you think he (even she) is or isn’t, sees every single thing I do, I wouldn’t take a dime, nay, a penny not belonging to me. A billion dollars isn’t worth pissing off the Creator of the Cosmos. Not to me anyway.

Everything about my deal with an author is outlined in a virtual handshake of an email. My authors are absolutely free to take their books and leave, anytime they want. I don’t charge them a dime, for my work in editing and designing their books, nor do I charge them for print set-ups or copyright fees or any other thing. I also don’t pay advances. And do you know what is happening now that I decided to pursue this course? Loyalty is happening. Trust is happening. I do pick my authors carefully, generally based on how receptive they are to editing, and sure, I expect one or two to run off perhaps after all the work is done, but that hasn’t happened yet. And that will be the particular author’s karma, not mine, if it should.

Now, if I go belly-up and close my doors, the authors aren’t out because they haven’t signed away anything, there’s nothing for any unscrupulous lawyer or court to grab outside of my business checking account, and I have no intentions of selling out, so there you go.

To my way of thinking, the ideal contract is no contract at all. And if I should get sued on behalf of an author for plagiarism or outright libel, that’s my fault for not vetting the work properly to begin with. If that’s the case, I will stand up and take responsibility, not try to shift it to someone else because “it’s in the contract.”
