Lou Pritchett is one of corporate America’s true living legends — a former P & G executive, an acclaimed author, a dynamic teacher, and one of the world’s most highly rated speakers. It was he who changed the way America does business by creating an audacious concept that came to be known as “Partnering”. Here is part of a speech given by Lou Pritchett April 15, 2012

Patriot or Traitor?

I was born in “year two” of the Great Depression (1931) and spent The first 10 years of my life influenced by the extreme hardships of the Depression. By today’s standards my family was about a mile below today’s so-called ‘poverty level’; but if you never ‘had’— doing without was not so ‘bad’. Borrowing shoes to graduate from the 8th grade didn’t seem at all demeaning because most of the 8th graders did the same thing.

In June 1944, my only brother, Joe, was killed in action on Utah Beach in Normandy, France during the D-Day landings. Exactly one year later, my father died and left me, my mother, and my sister to go it alone. And alone we went. My mother went to work at a department store, my sister dropped out of school and joined her and I went to work shining shoes on the streets of Memphis for a dime a shine. Government assistance was not available and if it were I am confident my mother would have refused it because she never wanted the government involved in our lives.
I mention this bit of personal history to help you understand that Millions of Americans, including your parents and grandparents, grew up like me during the Great Depression and never expected nor wanted the government to offer them anything other than an opportunity…. and now; to see what Obama is trying to do to our country tends to make you crazy.
As some of you know, my “Scare Me” letter went viral with millions of hits on the Internet during the past 3 years. I have now written a Follow-up letter, which I will now share with you. It will be released to the press tomorrow morning.”
“In April 2009, I sent President Obama and the New York Times a Letter titled “You Scare Me” because, as a candidate, he promised to “fundamentally transform America.”
Now, after observing his performance for over three years, he no longer scares me— he terrifies me for the following reasons:
FIRST– He has done more to damage America’s standing in the World, to lower the standard of living in America, to impoverish future Generations and to shake our faith in the country’s future than any other American president in history.
SECOND– With a compliant Democrat congress, a lap-dog media, and a weak, almost nonexistent Republican opposition; he has shattered the America’s dream of job security, home ownership and rugged individualism for millions of Americans and has poisoned and divided our civil society with his politics of envy, class warfare, race warfare, and religious warfare which he is using as fundamental building blocks for his socialist agenda.
THIRD– Culturally, he remains totally out of touch with traditional American values. This has absolutely nothing to do with race or where he was born, rather it has everything to do with where, how and with whom he was raised, schooled, educated, trained and associates with still today.
FOURTH– He has surrounded himself with naïve academicians, lawyers, politicians, bureaucrats and socialist leaning czars who arrogantly think and behave exactly as he does. People who offer no balanced suggestions or devil’s advocate positions…. think in lock step with him that big government is the answer to all our problems.
FIFTH– He not only encourages but aids and abets the unionization of all American industry…. the albatross around the neck of the free market. In turn, they give the money and muscle to intimidate his opponents.
SIXTH– He has increased the national debt by over 30% in just Three years. If re-elected and this rate of increase continues, America will be burdened with an unsustainable 20 trillion-dollar debt which will result in the Country’s financial death. Recovery will be impossible —- America will be the Greece of 2016.
SEVENTH– Given his fanatical beholding to the environmental and ‘man-caused global warming fringe, he has deliberately discouraged U.S. fossil fuel exploration and production while wasting millions of tax payer dollars on solar, wind and algae experiments. He refuses to accept that oil, gas and coal are not America’s enemies, they are America’s assets which, properly managed, could make us energy independent within a generation.
EIGHTH– He views the U.S. as a power in retreat which abused its World dominance. Therefore he systematically apologizes round the world. Last March he whispered to Russian President Medvedev “–this is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility”. Just what is the secret that Obama and Putin are concealing from the American people until after the election? With what other leaders has he made similar secret agreements?
NINTH— Finally, after all his miss-steps, bad decision-making, poor management, and zero leadership, the fact that he has the audacity to seek re-election should terrify every American.
I predict that if re-elected, future historians and political interpreters will look back at the eight year period 2008-2016, and conclude “the 44th President of the U.S. allowed the takers to overpower the payers which resulted in the greatest economy in history vanishing from the face of the Earth.”
Farewell America, the World will really miss you! Lou Pritchett April 15, 2012

When it comes to a President of the United States shedding tears, it’s a news worthy event, isn’t it? After inspecting the tears coming from President Clinton on his way to attend the funeral of Secretary of Commerce, Ron Brown, one can only question if any President’s tears are “official” or not!

Such curiosity forces the curios to research tears, if any, that might come from another Democrat, President Obama. So, what would bring President Obama to tears?

Would it be fair to ask if Obama would shed tears over the deficit he has created, the lost jobs he has created, the elderly suffering due to inflation he has created, the companies moving out of America because of the anti-business regulations he is creating, or could it be for the job creators he demeans and belittles every day? We even thought we would find tears over the soldiers that killed or wounded under his watch, but instead only found he used them as personal backdrops for photo ops! Unfortunately, the Internet doesn’t expose any event where he is crying over any of these issues, but is instead saying, “I am proud of my accomplishments.”

Someone was even dedicated enough to post the 40 most proud achievements of the Obama Presidency and they are available for everyone’s scrutiny. It is enough to say that one would have to have a strong stomach and be deeply involved in sadism to suggest these are “achievements.”

Then as big as day, we found Obama with “real” tears – we think. Obama’s tears would be over the death of a very important American, Dorothy Height. The stark contrast is truly amazing, isn’t it? He cries over the death of one person, while millions are suffering under his own actions. He sends good and decent young Americans into harm’s way to depose brutal dictators, while it seems he wants to be one.

Instead of working at undoing what he has done since it doesn’t work, he trots around in Air Force One at taxpayer expense to attempt to raise a billion dollar war chest for his re-election campaign. Nothing this man does is sensible. After Steve Jobs came to him with recommendations and offers of support, Obama responded with contempt and ostracized him from communications.

Instead, he prefers jetting about to visit with his old Acorn, SEIU, and George Soros buddies touting how it is okay to give Billions of taxpayer money to his “cronies” in the Green Energy businesses, brag about his friend Eric Holder that oversees the Justice Department that is now believed to have murdered over 200 people, brag about the Wall Street protesters as being in tune with his philosophies, murders an American citizen without benefit of trial, and the list goes on and on!

Steve Jobs

 (THE BLAZE) — A highly anticipated biography about secretive Apple co-founder and former CEO Steve Jobs, written by Walter Isaacson, is slated for release October 24. The Huffington Post, however, managed to obtain a copy early and revealed some very interesting tidbits about the life of the Apple visionary — namely that, upon meeting President Barack Obama in 2010, Jobs told him, “you’re headed for a one-term presidency.”

According to HuffPo, the book states that Jobs was critical of the Obama administration for not being business-friendly and blasted the nation’s education system as it is “crippled by union work rules.”

Jobs, who insisted the president personally extend an invitation to meet with him, told Obama that “regulations and unnecessary costs” make doing business in the United States, as opposed to China, prohibitive.

Do these revelations about Steve Jobs’ opinion of the president surprise anyone? It shouldn’t since “jobs” is something that President Obama has proven he wants to eradicate! Steve Jobs represents everything that Obama and the Democrats despise. Regardless, the world will miss anyone like Steve Jobs. We wish Steve’s family, loved ones, and friends the best. The world mourns his death and will always miss him and his dedication toward creating jobs and improving our lives.

Anyone that works their way to the top of the success ladders is now a targeted enemy of the Democrats. Why? It’s because these people don’t need “government” and won’t contribute to their anti-American and anti-business philosophies. Why else would the Democrats attack Presidential hopeful Herman Cain, personally, with such tenacity? After all, Herman Cain has a similar lifestyle as Steve Jobs – self-made, not government made!

When any politician is plummeting in the polls, strange things may happen. With President Obama, there is no exception to this rule. Consider these recent flukes in his acknowledgements:

Obama's Friends

  • Congressional hearings are exposing the Justice Department’s activities in the “Fast & Furious” Mexican gunrunning scheme linking them to more than 200 Murders, while Obama confesses he has complete and total confidence in Holder, the DOJ head.
  • Here is Obama’s quote that demands Americans to take a closer look “I think I’ve been very clear that I have complete confidence in Attorney General Holder and how he handles his office,” said Obama in a press conference in the East Room of the White House. “He has been very aggressive in going after gunrunning and cash transactions that are going to these transnational drug cartels in Mexico. … He’s indicated that he was not aware of what was happening in Fast and Furious. Certainly, I was not.”
  • Other news agencies report, “Fast and Furious has gotten a lot of people killed,” he observed, “including Brian Terry. CBS News disclosed Friday morning that former Deputy Attorney General Gary Grindler knew about Fast and Furious 18 months ago. He’s now Holder’s chief of staff. Yet the President and Holder both stick to the claim that they had no knowledge of the operation. Just how much longer does this administration think the American public is going to believe that story? People aren’t that gullible.”
  • The news reports from around the world covering the “Wall Street” protestors and sympathizers suggest thousands of arrests have occurred due to disobedience as well as costing taxpayers millions from damages and policing activities – not to include the loss from business in the area of the protests. Now, we learn… “Never before has a boisterous campaign of civil disobedience – marked by more than 700 arrests (in New York) – received the kind of warm welcome from a sitting president and his party that President Obama and leading Democrats have accorded the “Occupy Wall Street” movement.
  • After a trip to the protestor’s Internet website, it is rather easy to grasp that these protestors are not “innocent” college students that don’t have a clue about the “real world.” http://www.occupywallst.org/
  • Their demands for free education, food, housing, transportation, clothing, and adult beverages is very much beyond the pale for most people living in the real world, but they must come up with something to protest because their intent is not a mixture of “stupidity” and “innocence” but rather a darker wish to do harm to others, including the potential collapse of capitalism without a clue about what capitalism means.

With these thoughts in mind, can anyone imagine why President Obama is demanding respect and no criticism? Is this man smoking his own dope or what? The above “partial” listing of un-American support is only two from a list that is many. The reason this is important is he took an oath to defend America – not destroy Her!

Shouldn’t we ask, “What then is the value of one’s words when the person speaking places no value upon them?” Obama falsely proclaimed America had to have the stimulus for “shovel ready” jobs only after to disclose and laugh about the fact there were none.

While the President may be laughing about all the un-American activity, most Americans are not laughing with him, but instead laughing at him. Neither is Obama a contender for a Comedy Show or the Presidency. If Mr. Obama continues his run for the Presidency, ridicule will laugh him off the stage!

Wake up America. Today, when we look at politicians, we had better start asking ourselves, “Does this person running for office represent the past or future?” Is it possible to find a single American that says, “I am very proud of the historical numbers America is now producing in unemployment, home foreclosures, bank failures, bankruptcies, homelessness, hunger, education, fuel prices, grocery store prices, home sales, auto sales, and opportunities for our children?”

With the advent of Obama, America can now easily present two distinct choices of government in our history: one of capitalism and personal freedom and the other socialism and government control. The next time we pull a lever to cast our vote, we must know with certainty what the person running for office believes and is willing to enforce upon America – not voting on their good looks, great speeches, or money!

True capitalism always expresses itself as a political system that allows “all” boats to rise if citizens are willing to exert sufficient effort. Under capitalism, failure is a “choice” – never a result of a system that makes the choice. Under capitalism, there are no “classes” of people based upon education, heritage, pedigree, or affiliations. Under capitalism, people are able to do and think as they please – so long as laws are not broken. Under capitalism, fact and truth prevail while we expose fiction and lies.

On the other hand, other forms of government choose its winners and losers through government controlled media, excessive controls on the private sector, and tax laws. They see the world as a better place only when Government and elitists are the driving force and able to overrule the private sector. Non-capitalistic systems set up all sorts of religions that take precedent over logic, fact, and the best interests of the masses. The need for anti-capitalism religions is a means to extend government controls to the masses – all touted as “improving” something based upon philosophical evidence, never fact.

Anti-capitalism leadership falsely believes government is “all-knowing and wise” while the private sector is overrun with idiots, uncouth sorts, and people unworthy of entrance into “their” level of élite societies. People involved in these sorts of elitist societies look upon themselves as “rulers” – never a public servant. It’s always a group of people where arrogance and ineptness runs amuck. If one doubts these facts, then please do a little research on Russia, China, North Korea, and untold numbers of banana republic countries. Of course, if one wishes to look at America for anti-capitalism and anti-freedom worshipers, consider starting with Obama, Holden, Clinton, Bush, Oprah, Hollywood, Congress, Gore, Gates, Buffett, NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, and the like.

Now, the 10 million dollar question is, “If anyone is proud of his or her anti-capitalistic and anti-freedom society religions, then come out of the closet and let us know who you are, like Warren Buffett (a recent convert) and George Soros (a long time anti-American)?” Should anyone involved in anti-American religions hide their true feelings? Why hold meetings in dark rooms and secret places? Why stumble over significant words during Congressional hearings? Why not just spit it out and let the world know with certainty who and what you “really” are! If you believe it, be proud – never secretive!

In contrast, when others find solutions or invent something isn’t there endless articles and unknown interviews touting the facts? Anything improving people’s lives will become a hit once accurately presented, promoted, and facts support it. Otherwise, we refer to people who intentionally promote anything intended to create harm or mislead, charlatans, don’t we?

Do charlatans generally run in the light and subject themselves to fact checking? Do charlatans prefer emotional outcry to fact? Do charlatans believe emotions always trump fact? Do charlatans believe that education is a conduit for “training” children to support their philosophies, never an institution of learning fact and truth?

Therefore, those politicians and leaders favoring the record numbers that Obama and his anti-freedom and anti-capitalism supporters are creating, we beg you to come out from the closet and let everyone know who you are! The elections will be soon and we don’t have a lot of time to discover who is inside of every closet. Let’s be proud of who and what you are and let the world know why you believe your system is so superior to what made America the greatest nation in world history!

We beg you to stop meeting in dark rooms, faraway places, and trying to trick America. Please find a way to build up enough leadership to lead your fellow elitist out from the closet and on to “Main Street” America. Stop being two-faced and just level with everyone. Surely, if you believe in such anti-American philosophies, then be proud of it! If not, then shouldn’t you shut up and learn something about the real world – like truth and fact?

Traitor or Patriot?

For more years than I have lived, Capitalists are renowned for being the “Silent Majority.” While others are enjoying vacations, holidays, and time off, Capitalist are busily going about their never-ending 18-hour daily cycles of planting seeds and harvesting.

Capitalists rarely attend protest rallies, marches, or events that need time away from their business. Time is always money to a Capitalist. They don’t waste either!

Today, we watched a supposed Capitalist confirm he is now a devout Socialist. Many that know Warren Buffett say the transition started several years ago in trying to squash competition. Since Buffett can afford to hire all the Attorneys in the world to avoid tax payments, he used taxes in a way that hinders – if not end, competition. Unlike Buffett, competitors couldn’t afford to hire the sort of tax protection needed to compete with him.

Greed is a funny animal, isn’t it? One would think that since Buffett has as much money as God, he would be satisfied… but he’s not. The awful thing to see is not just Buffett’s selling out of his Capitalistic conservative values, but giving up his entire soul for a bowl of pottage!

Thus, America has watched a man with courage and determination ride from the shadows of Omaha Nebraska to the bright lights of Washington DC as a hero and major success story. Now he leaves the lights of Washington DC to return to shadows of Omaha as a disgraced and despised multi-bazillionaire!

Now, the world will remember Buffett as a liar, cheat, and coward. He lies about his secretary paying more taxes than he does since he uses an apple and orange tax payment comparison. Many are reporting Buffett owes the IRS more than a billion dollars. However, in a plea bargain “raise taxes” deal with Obama, the IRS will in turn offer favors of some sort. Finally, he exposes his true yellow color by caving in to the Federal Government demands instead of fighting for what is right. If he doesn’t owe the taxes, as he claims, then he should fight for what is just.

Instead, we now see an old warrior that entered the battlefield of life bravely but leaves to live in obscurity as a shamed and fallen anti-American activist. While disappointed, we say, “Good bye” but we no longer wish you well on your new journey as an anti-American. Instead, we pray that the pain and suffering you choose to inflict upon other Americans comes back to haunt you and your families tenfold. Proudly placing one’s name on anything that will take food away from the hungry, clothes away from the naked, and shelter away from the homeless is one evil person… and all for a bowl of pottage!

Before reading what President Obama said on Labor Day, please watch these brief videos…

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ld05-5OOLRg

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hhJ_49leBw

The president is bringing the lofty rhetoric that defined his first campaign to the White House, as he prepares to face reelection 14 months from now. Here’s the most stirring paragraph from his Detroit speech:

“That’s why we chose Detroit as one of the cities that we’re helping revitalize in our “Strong Cities, Strong Communities” initiative. We’re teaming up with everybody — mayors, local officials, you name it — boosting economic development, rebuilding your communities the best way, which is a way that involves you.  Because despite all that’s changed here, and all the work that lies ahead, this is still a city where men clocked into factories. This is the city that built the greatest middle class the world has ever known. This is the city where women rolled up their sleeves and helped build an arsenal for democracy to free the world. This is a city where the great American industry has come back to life and the industries of tomorrow are taking root. This is a city where people, brave and bold, courageous and clever, are dreaming up ways to prove the skeptics wrong and write the next proud chapter in our history.” 

Pro or Anti American?

Should anyone now doubt Obama’s desperation for re-election? Of course, the reason he selected Detroit for this speech is tourism stopped coming this way years ago. It would be doubtful if we would be able to find more than a handful of non-Detroit citizens that would know what is happening there, today.  The city is down and out. It’s also on the brink of bankruptcy. It’s a city where government and labor unions chased away the private sector and took over from a-z. In its wake, the government has left bodies, lives, and property destroyed and irreparable.

Therefore, Mr. Obama, please use this city as your shining moment in history during your campaign. Let’s hear you explain how you intend to turn every city in America into another Detroit. Will you have the citizens of Detroit come to our cities to teach us how to destroy it or will we receive our own training – Pell grants, we pray!

Politician or Scientist?

 “Equations are more important to me, because politics is for the present, but an equation is something for eternity.”

 Was Einstein only adept in science? Obviously, such a profound statement must resonate with any learned person – notwithstanding political party affiliation.

Like the scorched earth in Oklahoma and Texas, political rhetoric in America is now at its flash point status. Any spark may create massive damage. That’s why monitoring words used in public speech is “everyone’s” responsibility. Just as we wouldn’t enter a theater to yell, “Fire!” we must never do anything untoward in public speech to incite harm upon others.

One would think if we could learn anything from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. it would be to recognize that speech has consequences. One of his prime efforts was to enlighten people explaining we are more able to attract bees with honey than with vinegar. Hate speech is like vinegar and it burns. Tossing more kindling wood into a “tinder box” will not cut the risk of fire.

Today, the governors of Texas and Oklahoma are asking volunteers to bring water to help fight their fires. In contrast, we are now seeing Obama, Democrats, and the labor unions asking volunteers to bring gasoline to help put out their fires. Something is way wrong with that, right?

Should we be asking Obama, the Democrats, and the labor unions if they are pulling an instant replay from the Western Movies! Did we miss anything like offering a fair trial to the Tea Party? Who decided before the trial that America’s number one enemy is now the Tea Party? Where is the proof to back up the accusations? Did they find any Tea Party members holding public office? How is it possible to find anyone guilty of bad legislation within a non-elected group?

Logically, none of what Obama and labor unions are doing could ever make sense. However, that’s not the point. Instead, all Americans must understand these are not ignorant people. Do not believe this is a simple mistake. They are all (Obama, Democrats and Labor Unions) aware of their intentions to falsely blame the Tea Party for America’s problems. In order for Obama, Democrats, and labor unions to stay in power, they have to use “smoke and mirrors” to focus the blame upon others. Honesty would be committing suicide!

If we were Obama, we would know blaming Republicans for America’s problems is not going to work since they have been an accomplice and friend working with Obama – not against him. He also cannot select a single person like Bush or an unknown group like evangelicals since the American masses wouldn’t fall for them. Therefore, it was only through the process of elimination that Obama, Democrats, and labor unions had to focus upon the Tea Party as their scapegoat.

Obama is well-informed and knows that Whites are a minority in the Tea Party, but he doesn’t care. His hope is to secure votes from less educated, minorities, homosexuals, and labor union masses that have no choice in voting. Obama is betting these types will never learn anything about the Tea Party. He is betting on the facts that the masses will be too busy looking for employment, trying to stay alive, and focused upon caring for their families – not politics. Obama also knows he is able to depend upon the Media to put out the proper “sound-bites” and turn the spotlight of failure away from him and on to the Tea Party.

All-the-while, please remember that labor union members must continue to pay their dues – regardless of working or not. Without money from the labor unions, the Democrat Party is unable to exist. These two groups depend upon the others success or failure. With Obama’s decisions to destroy employment, move jobs overseas, and choke private sector growth, the labor unions are having more and more members refusing to pay their dues. Please do a simple math application to understand there are now around 30 million and if each of them owed the unions a dollar a month but didn’t pay it, wow! That’s a lot of do re me!

This all leaves Democrats, labor unions, and Obama with their backs against the wall. It is out of desperation they have chosen to target the Tea Party – not from fact. After Hoffa and Obama calls for union members to kill Tea Party members, they don’t know what to do next. They now depend upon the media to carry their water to give daily news stories showing how the Tea Party is killing American jobs. Good luck with that one!

Only when a Tea Party rally is in progress do we find “participants” — not members, gathered in public. Are Obama and Hoffa intending to kill them using “drive-by” shootings? Do they really believe this tactic will work? You see, the rest of the time, Tea Partiers are every day Americans doing what Americans normally do… work, worship, serve, play, and sleep.

It might be surprising to watch for the volatility between labor unions, Obama, and the Democrats from now until next November. While they don’t know who the Tea Party members are, they do know one another. What is happening within these three divisions of the Democrat Party is not good and it is bringing harm to all of them. As each day passes, we will begin to see more eruptions from within these three groups. Self-destruction is inevitable. Many now suggest that none of the three will survive after the next election. That means we will soon see political races between the Republican and another political group not yet identified. Einstein was absolutely correct because we are seeing the demise of the Democrat Party — a present day fad soon to go the way of the dinosaur.
