Richard Uzelac BlogOK,  I’ll admit I was a bit in shock when President Obama was re-elected. From all I understood about America, Capitalism and free enterprise, Obama wasn’t the man for the job. So now what do I do? Bellyache? Whine? Point fingers at others?

Well, maybe I did a bit of that. But after a while we all as American’s must bow to the will of the people, and the will of the people elected their representative: Barack Obama.

So where does that leave all of the rest of us that didn’t vote for him?

We move on.

We are still all the creators of our dreams. We are still individuals that can make our dreams come true in what is still the greatest country on Earth.

So conservatives, go and make a profit in this brave new world. There are those that say it is now easier to be financially successful in Obama’s America. With so many on the government dole, so many employed by the government, it leaves free enterprise a somewhat uncrowded space for the next bright entrepreneur. Think about it.

In 1979 I took a bus from the east coast to the west coast in the winter. Once I got there I hitchhiked around Southern California. An older gent in a new Lincoln MK5 Bill Blass Edition (ok, I know cars.) picked me up one day. It was the nicest car I had ever been in. The guy was a success. He had started two magazines: Skateboarder and Surfing magazines, or ones of similar names. He told me something I never forgot. He said, “Richard, come out here to California and make whatever you want out of your life. If you can just keep away from drugs and alcohol and apply yourself, you will be a success.”  He went on to say most of the youth in California were lazy goofballs that failed to create a plan and focus on success. He said if I did that, I would be a success. You know what, he was right.

Flash forward to 2012 and I say the same to all of you young people and not so young people out there. With so many focused on entitlements and handouts these days, your competition is much less. Your opportunities are vast.

So go forward and prosper Conservatives. Uphold your own values and create your own lives. Be a beacon by example for the misguided masses. May your life prove your values.

Richard Uzelac’s Take on the Election: Vote for Romney/Ryan, they understand Capitalism. Obama wants Socialism

As we wind down the election process and head down the final straight to pick our next President, I have decided to give my pick.

Romney/Ryan

Why? They understand business. They respect small business. Romney knows the only way for a Capitalist country to survive is to build up businesses so that they can hirer more people and build up their employees so that those employees can pay taxes to help fund the Federal, State, Local governments. Done, end of story.

Socialism doesn’t work. It is watered down Communism. It robs Americans of the will to work, the will to succeed, the will to truly live.  Squeezing the 50% of Americans that pay taxes for even more taxes, not only is unjust, it builds a divide, a resentment between the Earners and the Burners in America. I fear this may be a violent issue someday if we continue toward Socialism as Obama is doing.

But what about the Poor? First, there will always be Poor in any society. Stop believing that everyone is equal and that everyone is well adjusted and capable of success. It is not true. Some people wouldn’t succeed if you gave them a million dollars, a paid house, cars, education, everything! They’d still manage to mess it all up and end up back on welfare or the streets.  Does this mean us Capitalist just ignore them? No, I don’t feel that way. I help the poor and needy with charity and donations. Most well adjusted people with any kind of monetary success do the same. We are all free to do the right thing and help our fellow man.

But what about minorities? Don’t they deserve Affirmative action, Welfare, a leg up? No. In a free society all men and women have opportunity. The problem with the Welfare, Affirmative action mindset is it accomplishes the exact opposite of what it portends to do: Raise people up. These programs just continue the stereotypes and promotes the less motivated to become even less motivated at bettering themselves.

War: War is hell. We should only go to war if we are threatened by Evil. I believe we never build friendships by going to countries, taking them over and then trying to be their buddies. If a man’s father was killed in that war by the USA, that man will grow up hating the USA, no matter how many ‘good’ things we do for that country. I think we should pull out of Afghanistan and concentrate on our own country for a while.

Deficit: This is a long journey, long after Romney’s 8 years in office, the deficit will remain, but if there is reduction along the way, if it is going better for us and is being reduced, that will give Americans hope and it will be true change.

New World Order: Of course there are powerful people in the world that want the USA cut down to size, Obama included. He’d like this proud country on an even playing field with Belgium, France, Spain, and Greece. They’d like all of us workers making less with less freedoms looking up at the Federal Government for all our needs. These people of power can be stopped however, by vocal and active true Patriotic Americans willing to vote and be civilly active to preserve our great Union.

Regardless of who we elect, Americans must unite and let our elected officials know we still cherish the values and work ethic that made this country great.

So I’m feeling especially blessed and loved by God today. I thought of righting about the race for the Presidency of the United States of America, Romney vs. Obama. I thought of writing about the virtues of being ‘almost’ a vegetarian. I even thought of writing about the plight of the small business owner in this election year. But, since I’m feeling so blessed (and Loved) by God, I think it would behoove me  to remunerate the revelation, don’t you think?

So here goes my imperfect list:

Thank You Jesus for setting the example of love and peace and caring and kindness and truth and faith for all that seek these attributes. Through all of my life, the many many highs, and the lows, you have been there, constant, steady and unwavering of your love for me and your desire that I be the best man that I can be. Even when my analytical mind wanders from faith from time to time, you are there ready to welcome me back.  The older I get the more I cherish your love.

Thank You Mom and Dad for giving me life. Thank you for loving me with all your hearts, I felt it constantly through the years we had together. I feel it now that you are both in heaven. Dad, you took me to the boat, to the races and you showed up at my track and wrestling meets, how cool!  Mom, you dressed me well, taught me that history and the arts are important, believed in my abilities 110% All of the time. Thanks for all of the love you two. None of us beyond Christ is perfect on this earth, and I love how we all overlooked our faults and chose to concentrate on our positives and bettering ourselves.

Thank You Alexandra, I love you with all my heaaaaaaart! 🙂 You are the sweetest most loving woman I’ve ever met. The love you show to Bailey is a blessing and the love you’ve shown me makes me a better man striving to be better every day of my life. Being with someone so unpretentiously healthy is almost shocking even after almost four years. I thank God we are a couple every day of my life.

Thank You Bailey, like the Grinch my heart grew several fold when you were born. I’m honored to have you in my life as you are a give from the ‘Grace’ of God. As with Alexandra, I work mainly to honor, protect, and support you to have a healthy, happy, with high self esteem and live a Godly fulfilling life.

Thanks to:

My brother Dave, you are the most positive guy I’ve met and your strength is a source of power for me. I will always be there for you Bro.

My brother Steve, you are a great father and husband. I will always respect and care for you.

Cathy Perow, I will always wish the best for you and wish we had a better relationship. Maybe we were put together for Bailey and are forever bound through her.  We accomplished that with God’s grace. Hopefully we develop grace in our relationship.

 

Tribute:

John Perow: You were a hero of mine. A quiet no ego soul. A World War II reluctant hero that landed on the beach at Normandy, Omaha Beach (gives me chills to write that), saw your best friend’s head blown off at the first sand dune, charged up that hill, killed Germans, took France, joined Patton’s Army for the Battle of the Bulge (just like Easy Company in ‘Band of Brothers’), marched into Berlin and took that. Then went to Eagles Nest, Hitlers lair in the mountains and secured that as well. But you never spoke of it, never showed any memorabilia. Never accepted the moniker of ‘Hero’ from me or others, just said all the ‘Heros’ died there, that you were just a lucky guy. You went to Penn State after that, got an engineering degree, became a rocket scientist. (How cool would it be at a party: “What are you a rocket scientist or something?” “Yes, actually, I am a rocket scientist.”  Moved to Thousand Oaks when it was hills with cow chips and raised two good kids, survived the death of a spouse, remarried and routed for Penn State football and America.” The Greatest Generation” was written about men like you.

 

Incomplete List of Thank You’s:

Steve and Kika Medvecki, Chuck Mote, Ayn Rand, Milton Friedman, Henry Miller, Adam Smith, the Chaux family, especially Santa Mamita, RealtyTech employees past and present, Rob Baumgardner, John Crane, Ali Soufi, Jasmin, Chris, Steve etc. Paul Childs, Pat Condell, Mitt Romney, Ronald Reagan, the Founding Fathers, Steve Klarish, Rob Kasenow, Joe Paterno, Cael Sanderson, Bob Holloway, Tim and Sharon, Rich and Robin, Dawn, Adolf C, Emerson, Thoreau,  Julius Caesar, Small Business Owners, Honest Abe

 

Thanks,

Richard

 

 

Democrats and Republicans: So Many Shades of Grey

I had an email conversation recently with a friend, more of an acquaintance actually, but someone I truly respect and admire. the tone went sour quite quickly and it made me a bit surprised and a bit sad.

 

The Back Story:

If I had to label myself I would be a:  Fiscally Conservative, Libertarian, Capitalistic, Free Market kinda guy. I believe people work for what they have. I believe the Federal Government should defend the nation with a strong military, defend the borders from invasion, mitigate interstate disputes, and build cool monuments to American that we can be proud.  Beyond that, the Federal Politician is to follow the demands of their constituents, not the other way around. The people who elect him or her should have their voice heard and followed up upon, period.  The Politicians would need to provide a transparent view of all tax revenues and how those revenues are being spent. I think any major allocation should be approved by the people. The politicians need to be held to the fire to provide justification for every item they spend the public’s money on.

My friend is a very caring bright guy. He believes most conservatives are a bit self serving I suspect. (I agree here, but what other way is there? Everyone is self serving.) He believes the elected officials should have autonomy to do good for the people. He believes in freedom of choice, but he believes also that the government has the right to control certain aspects of life, more forced involvement.

So here is where I stand:

Abortion: I think abortion is killing. I think conception equals life and that abortion kills that human life. But, I don’t believe the government can control what a woman does with her body. It hurts me to think I am supporting abortion, which I am not, but I don’t want Big Brother to force a woman to see that abortion is killing. This is a tough one for me, but that is where I stand. I would put a limit on first trimester abortions and outlaw as murder, any abortion after the first trimester.

Gays: Non-issue, what two adult people decide to do of their own free will is none of anyone else’s concern.  There are so many issues in the world that demand more attention than this. Why do people need to control others to such an extent? It never works.  I’m a Christian, a tolerant, loving Christian that believes in redemption and that Jesus loves us all and he wants people to decide for themselves to walk a righteous path: But they must decide themselves.

Muslims: I know a few Muslims that are some of the kindest, most honest and truly great people I’ve met, and I’ve met some scary Christians, and vice-versa: Scary Muslims and Good Christians. Even though the Koran pushes conquering all other religions, most Muslims don’t feel this way I would expect.  In America we follow Constitutional Law, everyone. If you break the law you pay the penalty, no exceptions for any religion.

Illegal Aliens: Simple, the Federal government is to protect the borders. If someone comes over illegally, then that’s illegal, duh.

Taxes: Everyone, I mean EVERYONE above the poverty line needs to pay a set tax. Corporations need to pay their fair share, percentage of profits after expenses. There must be a way to do this.

Back to Democrats and Republicans.  I think they are basically the same, the politicians that is. They all have egos, all want to be in charge, all stuff their cabinets and committees based on favor and debts owed and not on merit. So therefore, they are basically the same.

 

So, my friend out there, I think we are not too far off. Hopefully we can find a common ground at our level, if not, how will this nation ever find common ground in Washington DC?

United States Soon to have Highest Corporate Tax Rate in the World

Posted by Uzelac | Posted in Ayn Rand, European Union, Internet Marketing, Penn State Football, Rich Uzelac, Richard A Uzelac, Richard Alan Uzelac, Richard Allen Uzelac, Richard Uzelac, Richard Uzelac CEO, Richard Uzelac Death, Richard Uzelac Design, Richard Uzelac Emmy Award Winner, Richard Uzelac Entrepreneur, Richard Uzelac Facebook, Richard Uzelac GOiMarketing, Richard Uzelac Health, Richard Uzelac LeadWolf, Richard Uzelac Marketing, Richard Uzelac PA, Richard Uzelac Racing, Richard Uzelac Realtor.com, Richard Uzelac RealtyTech, Richard Uzelac REZN8, Richard Uzelac SEO, SEO, Uzelac, Water and Health, Weight Training by Richard Uzelac | Posted on 01-03-2012

Hi Friends,

I came across this article in the www.AmericansForTaxReform.com website by way of the www.DrudgReport.com  website. I just had to copy and paste it into my blog.  I don’t usually do this but I am including for attribution and linkbacks so I think it’s fine with all.

One Month to Go Until We Have the World’s Highest Corporate Tax Rate

Just one month from today, the United States will have the highest corporate income tax rate in the developed world, surpassing Japan.

CLICK HERE to join the fight to stop Obama’s out of control massive tax and spend agenda.

Just one month from today, Japan will lower their corporate income tax rate from 39.5 to 35 percent.  When they do so, the United States will officially have the dubious distinction of possessing the highest corporate income tax rate in the developed world, a federal/state integrated rate of 39.2 percent.

To put that in perspective, the average in the developed world (OECD) is only 25 percent.  Our six major trading partners–Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Japan, Germany, and France–will all have a lower rate than we will have.  As a result, capital and jobs will continue to flow overseas, rather than staying here to create jobs, increase wages, fund pensions, invest in new business, or grow nest eggs.

Country Corporate Income Tax Rate
United States 39.2%
OECD Average 25%
Canada 27.6%
Mexico 30%
Japan 35%
Germany 30.2%
France 34.4%

President Obama last month proposed a plan to raise net taxes, but in the process lower the U.S. corporate rate to about 32 percent.  That simply isn’t worth it.  In exchange for a jobs-killing net tax hike, the Obama plan would still leave us with a tax rate higher than the OECD average, and higher than all our major trading partners except Japan and France.  No thanks, Mr. President.

Surprisingly Refreshing Comment From Jin Liqun, Chairman of Chinese Wealth Fund, by Richard Uzelac

Posted by Uzelac | Posted in Al Jazeera, Ayn Rand, China, European Union | Posted on 07-11-2011

The last website you can expect me to be spending time on is AlJazeera.net and possibly the last person I’m willing to read about is a Communist Wealth Fund Chairman, but…
whether it’s a case of ‘keeping the enemy close’ or just plain curiosity, I found myself watching and reading about the video below.

In the clip Jin Liqun simply but surprisingly states the obvious: the Euro-Union is unfair and doesn’t work.

He states and example where some Euro members have to work hard until they are 65 where other members in other countries stop work at 55 to enjoy a life of leisure. The inequity of the situation that allows some to retire early in one country while in another country, the members have to continue working to support and pay for the early retirees is a simple microcosm of the world order today: This is why it’s all falling apart.

Jin Liqun goes on to point out the obvious (at least to him and Richard Uzelac) that allowing some to live off the government dole while others toil away to pay for it all, breeds, ‘sloth and laziness’ in the early retiree countries. Duh. But God Bless you Jin Liqun. I still have no trust for Al Jazeera’s motives.

So Atlas is Shrugging in Europe, while the idiots at Occupy are pointing their crooked fingers at the ‘Rich’ who create the jobs and move our country forward. Hmmmmm, but that’s another story.

Go See Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, in Theaters Now!

Posted by Uzelac | Posted in Ayn Rand, Richard A Uzelac | Posted on 18-04-2011

Atlas Shrugged now a movie in theaters now!

“Who is John Galt?” The iconic line from the second most influential book in history, next to the bible, “Atlas Shrugged,” by Ayn Rand.

Why see this Movie? If nothing else but to help finance parts two and three that NEED to be made in the next few years. But seriously, all Americans need to see this movie and understand the current battle between the power of the Collective vs. the power of the Individual.

My hope is that everyone that doesn’t know the story, takes the time to read the book, the movie as always, is a pale reflection of the book. Hopefully the movie picks up the interest.

Cheers,
Richard Uzelac
