On June 12, 2016 America suffered the worst mass shooting in our history at the hands of a radical Islamic Terrorist in an Orlando nightclub. At this moment in history, American politicians are suffering from a serious lack of historical understanding.
Multiple times throughout America's history, we have had to contend with radical religions whose goal was to destroy our way of life. The difference between then and now is how America chose to deal with the offenders. In Episode 60, you'll meet Dr. Larry Schweikart, a #1 NY Times Bestselling Author who walks us through examples from the past and present in a unique and compelling way.
Dr. Schweikart examines 'alternative history,' which means looking at events as if they had gone differently. We drill down into specific historical examples, including one in Larry's recently published book "Halsey's Bluff,' where Dr. Schweikart examines what might have been in the Battle of Midway. Most importantly, he helps us apply historical lessons that can help American families make good decisions for our future.
In this day and age we hear a lot about our 'rights.' In the Declaration of Independence, our inalienable rights of LIFE, LIBERTY and The PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS cannot be separated from you. This is very rare because it is based on the idea that these are God given, not government given.
In Episode 59, we review the details related to Personal Property Rights. What does that really mean? Personal Property includes ideas that you create, also known as intellectual property. That is the basis of patent law and why you can think up a new idea and benefit from it financially.
Small business can have a powerful impact on your financial status because you have the legal authority, granted to you by the US Constitution, to think of something unique, validate it, protect it, market it, sell it.. and create massive profits along the way. All this hinges on protecting our Personal Property.
Before we drill into the main content on this program, we do a look back at Memorial Day and examine why it is such a unique and important day. More and more citizens are beginning to understand the massive cost associated with the 1.3 million Americans who made the ultimate sacrifice.
In Episode 58, we look at what happens when arbitrary decisions are made that impact small business. There is a big discussion about raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour. People are bad-mouthing small business owners, when they should be hammering the politicians who prefer sounding good on TV while knowingly killing jobs and putting people out of work.
While politicians are slamming small businesses with more regulations, the rest of us are looking for reasons to help. Listen and learn three specific ways anyone can inspire entrepreneurs, employees and their families to keep their chins up at the same time.
