As a graduate of UWGB's "inter-disciplinary Environmental Science" program - and "partner" - for 4+ years - of a 1970s NorthEastern WI "Fur Trapper" - the analogy of
fur-trappers eating everything caught in their traps - and, complaining of 'bad-tasting ' stew - seems a 'fit'.
In fact, my [then] "business partner" gave raccoon [a] and muskrat [b] meat to the Farmer's wife - in exchange for exclusive "farm land" access - and, she cooked it - right along with the venison [c] - also taken. Always a "finicky" eater [d]- I did not even taste the bad smelling goo - but, I observed it; and, recall my Partner's complaints. In fact, what my Partner desired - was carnal knowledge [e] of the farmer's pretty wife; AND the farm - SHE SAT UPON. The "Farmer" - eventually realized - what his wife was about - and, they divorced - but, not before - she had him imprisoned - for attempting to "kill" her. My Partner - actually, had her one time (he said) - and, quickly grew tired of her cooking.
The angst of Republicans today - is directly related - to an UN-AMERICAN "impression" [that] "business owners" have "rights" ... that exceed - their responsibility - to the places and people - they depend on. Donald J. Trump - has a long history of this belief system - well documented in the New York Times. [g]
In fact, because WHAT "MY" BUSINESS did - the "services" we provided - were at the "cutting edge" of technology (1987) - in A "Woman Owned Business"- AND, we (thus) paid our staffers - very well - to "keep them" - working for us... In fact, "Employee Health Care" - was our next largest "EXPENSE". [Thus, "socialized medicine" ( for everyone)- for our society - seems like a "field leveler" to me - as in "level playing field" ]
Thus, "regulations" [ US LAW] - (that) would "prohibit polluting activities" - and "building" in swamps is disdained - by "Trump Republicans"; And, increases in the minimum wage - to a "living wage" (of $15/hour - for even "hotel housekeepers" ) - is viewed as a direct drain on "owners" profits - is a view reinforced by a Real Estate Executive - steeped in illegally avoiding taxes. First, for his father - THEN, for himself. The RICH DEVELOPERS never live in the polluted "pigsty" - they create -- "build-baby-build" !
AND, let us not forget to review the events of 1787 and 1850 - in American history.
In 1787 - the subject of "slavery" was squashed - by an UN-just agreement. (1) In 1850 a "compromise" - which was bound to "fray" - in the face of reality - was reached. (2) The US Civil WAR officially began - in 1861. [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Civil_War ]
At issue now - is not slavery - but necessary "protectionism" (to sustain the "American Standard of Living") - and, how "PROTECTIONISM" could be implemented [ in the New World Order ] :-) to: simultaneously maintain "markets" , tame "world-wide competition" , end World pollution , HALT CLIMATE CHANGE - and, avoid war.
Again, my experience is pertinent: I "founded" a small business - in the spare bedroom of our Single Family home - located in Columbus, Ohio. Very important, I required - in 1987 - [that] my "clients" ( America's Major College TEXTbook Publishers ) pay me a cash retainer "before" I would incur significant EXPENSE and work would begin - on producing the "digital art programs" - their USA college textbooks required. My prices (per art/per project) were set - after a careful review of the work required [in terms of "manhours"] and - a simple calculation of the "Profit" - I expected to make.
I - in fact - learned to do this - from my father: Milo Gerald Cassady 1902:1964. He was a "wall paper hanger" , "wall surface and banister fixer" and, "carpenter". He performed work - all over Central Ohio - based on "bids" to property owners. He permitted me to observe him "calculating" his bids -on legal paper. He DIED - from Mesothelioma - when I was 10 years old.
I also learned by working - at General Electric. The US Military hired GE - to develop military-related systems (for them). I participated - in the "bid meetings" - for some of these systems. I also coded software - for the DDG Aegis system. And, I am the lowly "Technical Writer" - who invoked the "Lincoln Law" - when "ordered" (by my GE manager) to sign a document [stating that] a Systems End User Manual was "complete" - when, I knew [that] it had NOT been tested - and, did NOT match - the latest version - of the system - being "pushed out the door" - ONLY to meet an internal dead line.
I did NOT collect - as a "whistle-blower"; Instead, I quit that day! And, placed a card onto the Engineering Building bulletin board - to encourage my co-workers - to also "rebel" - if needed. I took another job - within days (1986). I also - within months - began the business [ described above 1987 ] - with my very talented husband Hans Neuhart .
HOWEVER, circa 1994 - my clients learned [that] they could "out-source" [e] the digital ART Program services - my company performed - to foreign countries. Which, (these foreign countries) provided their citizens with "Health CARE" - and, there existed no minimum wage - in these "foreign countries" . My company could not be "competitive" - against such "foreign" competition - which, we experienced - suddenly - as a series of lost "bids".
Our reaction - upon realizing the circumstances - circa 1995 - was to close our USA established business [ Hans & CassAdy, Incorporated ] - AND sell our accumulated assets: residential home, office building, equipment. We moved "West" - and, went into "consulting roles" - in America's "Silicon Valley" - and, experienced a "NEW" kind of success. Thus, we "survived" in a new "Darwinian" evolved form. [My husband and partner was - and is - Hans Neuhart ]
Today's choices are just as stark:
1. America needs "temporary" immigrant workers - to perform work - [that] Americans - do NOT want to do.
AND, 2. America's technological "edge" depends upon the kinds of systems, devices, mathematics and algorithms - Americans lack the ability - to create. Again, both (of these) "problems" can be solved - But How? Again, I have practical - and related "experience" - in both areas ... and, suggestions ( if invited )
!! THANK YOU! PRESIDENT BIDEN - FOR YOU "INVITATION" MOMENTS AGO "Inauguration speech" ( suggestion - based on "experience" in progress ) " ... https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/interactive/2021/01/20/biden-inauguration-speech/ ..."
Trump co-opted "birther-ism", "racism" - and "sexism" - already in existence - and codified - by Far Right Organizations. These "organizations" un-checked - threaten our country's domestic tranquility AND well-being. They are Domestic Terrorist platforms. And, by the Right's "FAILURE" to examine his proclaimed "successes" - as the "fool's gold" - they were - these ACTORS nearly demolished the Republican Party. Which, Democrats NEED occasionally (to keep us "honest") I admit [that] I am mostly a "Liberal Democrat"; but, I think I voted for Ross Perot - because, he captured my imagination ( in 1996 ).
Godspeed Mr. Biden - to right our ship. It will not be easy. And, it begins (in part) with an examination of the damage done [to our time-tested institutions] - AND, how the "damage" happened. I will continue - to do my best - with my very small audience - to educate - and inform. Our mountain is high and wide. Your long "political" experience - will be helpful; - as, I hope - my personal "experiences" - will enable me to reach - my small audience - which, may help you.
