On our way home, I pulled up next to a van at a stop light. My wife turns and says “those are the Mexican terrorists spurned by Trump’s vitriol.”
Some shady-looking fellow peeks out the side of an unmarked white van with tinted windows.
My wife is funny if nothing else.
Anywho, it reminded me of all the shenanigans Donald Trump has been pulling lately. I read this morning his campaign is imploding.
I can’t imagine Mexican (or any other minority) voters supporting him.
But, maybe they will. Who knows? He got the evangelical vote…which defies explanation.
Now, lest I throw my hat into middle and join the Trump-bashing crowd, let me say I think the man does two things right:
He appeals to the lowest common denominator. That’s no easy feat.
…He’s 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 too. 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. And longer than you’ll be.
I outline step 1 in my new book:
