Pay It Forward! Inspire Others!

I’ve done a lot of things in my life, from epic adventures to financially rewarding enterprises and projects that left me broke. All of them are things I learned from and all of them share a common thread in what I was most surprised by each time and what was most gratifying to me personally. Inspiring people. There are two individuals I’ve inspired that really stand out to me.

In 1998 I was inspired by a friend of mine, Mick Bird, who had built a customized rowboat and set off to row around the world. http://www.goals.com/transrow/laterprt.htm Mick wouldn’t make it all the way, but that wasn’t what was important to me, he was living his dream and after seeing him out in the water for the first time, I knew I had to make my dream happen too.

South is the new way up! Major trend for 2014: Latin America. Start checking out South American investment, it's part of our future now.

LAST weekend?

well gee I guess that means I missed it too.

Yanno, it's just like a 2 hour drive but Northern and Southern might as well be two different universes. Northerners don't like the South and getting the South to come North is like pulling teeth. We are mountain folk and they are city folk and culturally there's nothing in common but cilantro. Southern wants to be part of the big, busy world and the rest of Arizona avoids the outside world like a plague.

I guess that's why the R3VOLUTION and Arizona was such a charge because all the sudden we became this big, cohesive engine. I guess as you know, Ernie deserves a lot more credit than almost anybody suspects. But talk about influence in this movement cause Ernie is practically everywhere, knows practically everybody and how about that knack he has for seeing the freaking future? Man I seen that guy call shots from so far out it wasn't even on my scanner.

And of course occasionally I want to wrap my hands around his neck and strangle him. ERNIE! WTF DID YOU DO THIS TIME? AAARRRRRGH I COULD JUST....but there's nothing you can do. You can't stop him from being him, Ernie is a take-it-or-leave-it proposal.

I got one for ya. I finally found a way to wrankle him. And I do this just to poke him in the ribs, for the fun of it but call him a "closet authoritarian". Yup, wanna cheap shot that gets under his skin? Thats it right there.

Saw your post on FP and that's good. FP is a permanent power center. it's awesome exposure to exactly the kind of crowd I think you wanna run with.

Lemme know when you are out here. We'll get it together with Ed Vallejo the Psychic Taxi and roll proper.

South is the new way up! Major trend for 2014: Latin America. Start checking out South American investment, it's part of our future now.

Hanging out with Ernie..In person or on his show..

Is Always educational!

And I'll definitely let you know when I'm in Arizona again - My first time there was '93 and had the pleasure of meeting Sheriff Mack when he was still Sheriff....it really can feel like a small world:)

Zak C,

The penultimate sentence of the article has a typo: "I am *now* FreeAndEqual.Org's Communications Director."

Congrats for the worthy cause you are asked to join. I hope millions and millions of Americans abandon the sinking corrupt duopoly D/R shows and come to support and rely on FreeAndEqual debates for the coming elections.

Well..I guess that's what

I get for being my own editor....good thing we have a real editor for F&E business:)

And thank you! I've put together a very solid 6 point plan to make it so!

Six Point Plan?!?

. . . can we, foot soldiers in hinterlands, do anything to help expedite the demise of the R/D duopoly system and build up GREAT EXPECTATION for free & equal ways to get to know candidates?
