Simple (common sense) Questions..

Considering that all businesses (large and small) in America from giant “Aircraft” manufacturers to the makers of “zippers” for jackets, jeans, dresses, shoes, boots, handbags, tents for the outdoorsman and for purposes yet to be discovered, are in business to make a profit, ..which is a “really” good thing for a (capitalistic society)…

gold and silver bars 1

..why then are there (seemingly virtuous folks) ..currently busting their humps to exchange “their” unduly overvalued, “overpriced” gold and silver for your worthless dollars?

greed 1b

..and the lack of a moral upbringing would be my guess, ..but then what do I know? 

Richard C Blum 1a

(Richard C. Blum).

Second Question: Who is Richard C. Blum?

Richard C. Blum, is an American investment banker. He is also the husband of the senior United States (Democratic), Senator from California, Dianne Feinstein.

He is the Chairman and President of Blum Capital, an equity investment management firm that acts as general partner for various investment partnerships and provides investment advisory services.

Blum also serves in various boards of directors of several companies, including CB Richard Ellis. He is also a Regent of the University of California where until May 2009, he served as the chairman of that board.

very impressive resume

Albeit outside of elitists circles Richard doesn’t hold a candle to his wife’s celebrity.

Diane Feinstein 4a

(Diane Feinstein – U.S. Senator).

Dianne Goldman Berman Feinstein, born Dianne Emiel Goldman is the senior United States Senator from California. A member of the Democratic Party, she has served in the Senate since 1992. She also served as 38th Mayor of San Francisco from 1978 to 1988.

(Senior Senator from California is hard to beat).

Of course, with the culpability of investment bankers in “our” failing economy, you can’t blame Richard for not wanting to set on the front porch.

 ..not that there’s probably a lot of room on their front porch with Diane’s proclivity for headlines.

Diane Feinstein 3

SAN FRANCISCO — Dianne Feinstein has long been one of the Senate’s strongest advocates for gun control. But few people may know that the California Democrat used to own a firearm herself.

During an appearance at San Francisco’s Commonwealth Club on Wednesday, Feinstein recounted the time she was targeted by a domestic terrorist group, the New World Liberation Front, while a member of the city’s Board of Supervisors in the mid-1970s.

She described finding an unexploded bomb outside her San Francisco home, the lives of her family members saved only by a rare overnight freeze that disarmed the weapon’s mechanism.

Shaken from the scare, and another incident in which the windows of her beach house were shot out, Feinstein obtained a revolver that she kept in her purse.

“I thought if they were going to take me out, I wanted to take a few of them with me,” she told the audience with a laugh.

But after witnessing the assassination of City Supervisor Harvey Milk and Mayor George Moscone in 1978, Feinstein’s views on guns shifted. She later gave up her concealed weapons permit.

“I was the one that found Supervisor Milk’s body, and I was the one to put a finger in a bullet hole, trying to get a pulse,” Feinstein, who succeeded Moscone as mayor following his death, told the Advocate in an interview earlier this year.

“Once you have been through one of these episodes, once you see what the crime scene is like — it isn’t like the movies

— “it changes your view of weapons.”

“I know from first-hand experience what damage … weapons can do to bodies,” she explained at Wednesday’s event. “I have a deep belief that these weapons are antithetical to our values.”

(Sidebar).

According to Webster: “an·ti·thet·i·cal,” Being in diametrical opposition.

Editorial: (Of course this is just my personal opinion). Albeit (an opinion) that I earned under fire serving in the U.S. Army in Vietnam, (1965), ..while “our” illustrious Dianne was sitting behind a walnut desk in a San Francisco city office, ..I was sitting behind an M-60 machine gun drawing fire from every disgruntled North Vietnamese soldier who didn’t appreciate tall Americans with M-60 machine guns.

Accordingly, I feel as though I may have almost as much combat experience as the senior U.S. Sen. from California.

Fact: George Washington and the Continental Army routed King George’s redcoats with muskets and lead ball through smoke from British cannons that I’m sure occasionally put a hole in a Continental soldier.

Question? Imagine if you will, ..what “America” might be like today ( if ) George Washington (upon first sight of a man with a bullet wound) ..had sent his weapon to the Pope to be cast into a crucifix, followed by organizing a rampant campaign to ban assault weapons?

Continuing…

A personal observation: Americans don’t need selfish whiny (anti-American) liberals representing them in government.

We the People, ..need real Americans representing “us” in government. Men and women who will fight to protect and preserve the Constitution that our forefathers died for.

Feinstein red coat 2a

If memory serves, Americans defeated greed corruption and tyranny, i.e., (the redcoats) ..in 1783, ..so why in the hell are “we” (the common working folks) ..just standing by with “our” hands in our pockets while the elitists in Washington D.C. continue to (redistribute the wealth) from the “working class” into their “elitist” pockets?

(Sidebar).

Fact: Barack Obama was not a multimillionaire before he became a politician .

Continuing…

.and while were on the subject of (elitists pockets), where is Barack Obama’s “redistribution policy” ..in the current matter of selling 56 surplus U.S. Post Office buildings?

Question: Can someone explain to “me” ..and the other (311 million) struggling Americans currently suffering Obama’s failed economy, ..how it is fair to sign an exclusive contract with a single Real Estate company to handle the sale of the aforementioned 56 U.S. Post Office buildings?

Just how far is the Obama administration going to stretch the blatant disregard for equality and fair business practices?

shazam 1a

Richard C. Blum’s Real Estate company was just given an “exclusive” contract to handle the sale of 56 (surplus) U.S. Post Office buildings.

Maybe our Commander-in-Chief doesn’t understand the definition of equal?

According to Webster: “e·qual,” (in context) Having the same privileges, status, or rights.

I live in a community with less than 5000 residents, ..albeit we have three Realtors in town.

Since U.S. Post Office buildings were originally bought and paid for with U.S. tax dollars, ..why can’t the Realtors in my community share in the wealth that the six percent sales commission will bring to the individual, and/or, ..individuals, who find a buyer for the properties?
