Back when Trump was president, I remember this one time we were coming home and got stuck in traffic. At that time, we lived in Durham, land of traffic jams. Anyway, my wife turns to me and says “those are the Mexican terrorists spurned by Trump’s vitriol.”
Some fellow peeks out the side of an unmarked white van with tinted windows—it just fit the stereotype, awful as it was.
My wife is funny if nothing else.
Now, lest I throw my hat into middle of the Trump-bashing crowd, let me say I think the man did two things right:
He appealed to the lowest common denominator. That’s no easy feat.
…He was also a great salesman. Who else could sell the idea of a paid-in-full wall to keep out the very people who paid for it?
It’s like something out of Seinfeld.
I think the concept of a wall is a great idea. Think about it.
Walls hold things back. Or they hold things in. They’re inherently protective.
Imagine throwing up an emotional wall and not letting anyone in. See? It protects you from getting your feelers hurt. You get to carry around a bunch of emotional baggage for the rest of your life. Bonus.
No? No good?
OK, I got it. A financial wall.
Suppose you had one of them. And it held back the forces of evil trying to steal yer stuff. Wreck yer biz-naz. Sue you into oblivion. Tax you to Tahiti.
Such a thing does not exist? Au contraire mon frère.
This is something I teach all my clients. It’s dope, and it has worked for over 160 years. Longer than I’ve been alive. I talk about this all the time on my email list and media platform. If you want to know more, I have a new “AmateurClass” you can join. All you have to do is join my email list.
