WHY NOT THE BEST PERSON FOR THE JOB?
I’m Jewish . . . So, should I Demand a Jewish Vice-Presidential Candidate? Should People with a Visible Disability Demand a Disabled Candidate? Texas Governor Abbott is Physically Disabled. Was he Elected to the Position of Governor because he is in a Wheelchair? Or is Abbott the Texas Governor because he’s the Best Person for the Job?
THIS IS AFFIRMATIVE ACTION AT ITS WORST:
ONLY A SICK-MINDED GENDER-RACIST, would Demand that a Person of one Color or Another, should be Positioned to Run for any Political Position because of Color, Religion, Ethnicity, Gender, Cultural Background, Infirmity . . . Or Whatever.
For the People (Democrats) who are Always Yelling Racist, wasn’t it the Democrats who Fought on the Side of the Slavers against the Union (Abraham Lincoln) during the Civil War? Wasn’t it the Democrats who Created the KKK? And Weren’t Racist Brutes like Bull Connor of Alabama – Predominant Representatives of the Democrats during the Civil Rights Riots of the 1960’s?
And Wasn’t it The Democrats who Initiated Affirmative Action, which Placed Race Over, Above & Beyond Competence & Merit.
And Now . . . It Doesn’t just Appear to be a Strong Suggestion – but Rather, it is In-Fact Policy that the Most Important Criteria for the Choice of a Vice Presidential Running Mate for Joe Biden has to be a Woman. And probably a Woman of Color to Boot. If That’s Not Discriminatory & Racist – What Is?
It’s Funny How the Democrats Promote Themselves as the Party of the People & Justice For All . . . When the Democrats Fight Tooth & Nail Not to Protect Against Fraudulent Voting and put Illegal Immigrants on the same Footing as actual American Citizens.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez . . . the Poster-Girl for the Democrat Party is Promoting the Idea that once People Return to Work, the People should Not Go Back to Work.
Ocasio-Cortez gets paid $174,000 Per Year (Which is over a Truncated Year) plus Perks as a Member of Congress – whether Cortez Works or Not she gets Paid. Who’s Going to Pay for all these People Cortez is Advising Not to Go Back to Work? And Where does Ocasio-Cortez Think all the Money Comes from to Fuel the Government – Including Her Lavish Salary?
Imagine . . . Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is Paid $174,000 plus Perks for Working only Several Months out of the Year, while her Constituents are Lucky to Earn 10-20% of what Cortez is Paid . . . While Cortez Doesn’t Think $174,000 Is Enough For Herself.
THE BIGGER THE GOVERNMENT – THE BIGGER THE COMMITTEES – THE BIGGER THE MESS:
This was Written Way Back when I was much Younger, at about the Time of my Teenage Years, which was Coined by Sir Alec Issigonis, who Developed the Mini-Car . . . “A Camel Is A Horse Designed By Committee”.
I Strongly Share The Philosophy Of Sir Alec Issigonis – Who Detested Committees.
Many Years Ago, I was Hired through my Advertising Agency to Promote Condominium Properties for a very Successful Developer, who Wanted me to become Involved in a Charitable Social Endeavor, which he was Extremely Fond of.
I Said No Thank You, because – as it Already was, I was so Busy with my Agency and other things, that I just Didn’t have the Time to do what he Needed Done. His Response to me was Cogent . . . “If You Want To Get Something Done – Give It To A Busy Man”.
In Other Words . . . Not A Committee.
I Still Didn’t Do It Because I Really Had No Time . . . But I Understood the Meaning of his Statement. Years Later, I was Managing the Marketing & Advertising for Several High Profile Toronto Hotels, when the Vice President of Operations Decided that his Hotels’ Staff should Participate in the Marketing Strategy of his Hotels.
So – The VP Operations Arranged a Lavish Lunch at one of his Hotels, where Anne & I were to Meet with the Management of one Hotel Before Lunch, the Second Afterwards.
HERE’S HOW IT WENT:
We all Sat Down in a Meeting Room – Exchanged Pleasantries . . . And then Anne & I Listened to BS from all the People who HAD to get their Opinions Heard for More than an Hour, on how they Envisioned the Marketing & Advertising their Hotel should be.
I Have To Mention Several Important Facts . . .
1 – These 2-Hotels were our Largest Hotel Clients in Canada, Amongst more than a Dozen other Hospitality Clients we Managed.
2 – I Knew all the People in the Meeting, since Anne & I Handled their Marketing & Advertising at this Point for more than a Year.
3 – Because of our Marketing & Advertising Program, these Two Toronto Hotel Titans were Amongst the Most Successful in all of Toronto.
In Other Words . . . Anne & I Were Already Doing A Fabulous Job For Them At A Fraction The Cost They Would Have Had to Pay Another Agency .
4 – The Hotel Employees at the Meeting and their Assistants were from Sales, Food & Beverage, Catering, Revenue and the Front Desk. Not One Person In The Room With The Exception of Anne & Myself Had Any Marketing Or Advertising Experience. But every Person in the Room knew Better than Anne & Myself . . . How Anne & I Should Be Doing our Job.
It was a very Polite & Cordial Room. Everyone at the Meeting Except for Anne & Myself were thoroughly Enjoying themselves.
5 – The VP Operations Decided that all the Suggestions Made at the Meeting should be Discussed, Debated, Refined and Re-Discussed at our Next Meeting.
6 – The Meeting Concluded . . . We were all about to Adjourn for Lunch before the Second Meeting – The VP Operations was Delighted with the Discussions – And I Quit Right Then & There.
What I told the VP Operations Immediately after the Meeting was Simply This. If all these People are so Good at Promoting your Hotels, Save yourself a Whack of Money by Not Paying us, and Let your Staff Handle your Marketing & Advertising.
Every Part & Department Of Our Governments . . . Canada and the United States are Run by Committees, People who Have to Have their Say whether they Know what they’re Talking about or Not. They have to Discuss Everything Ad Nauseum . . . and Vote – Vote & Re-Vote on How to Create a Horse that comes out Resembling a Camel, when what the People Needed & Wanted Was A Horse.
Our Countries Are in Massive Debt. Whether it was the Virus or Something Else, it was Inevitable that the House of Cards our Governments Created out of Sheer Greed, Incompetence, Complications, Control & Size – Was Going To Collapse. Well, it’s Collapsed.
And Now With The China Virus . . . It’s The Same Old Same Old – The Government Knows Better Than The People.
