THE GETTYSBURG ADDRESS
(See Also-America the Beautiful-Blues Piano & Lyrical Verse-Gettysburg Address-in -Above Album Rotation)
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a
new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate--we can not consecrate--we can not hallow--this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us--that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion--that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom--and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

IS THERE A GLOBAL ECONOMIC CRISIS ??
Long Run—A Long Run Crisis could be -The Great Depression—Our Current
Great Recession--- or—The End of the World as we Know It!!!
How Washington, DC defines our situations should be looked at with great cousion
and here is WHY THAT IS TRUE –When the issues are ECONOMIC!!!
In the late 1960’s and the years that followed, as the “Rust Belt” Cities and Regions
Declined, Washington did nothing to save them. NOTHING!!!—WHY???—Because aa
places like Detroit, Cleveland and others got SLAMED—Other places GREW!! As the
PROSPERTY moved. Our local leaders in Washington from our Cleveland area are
praised during that era mostly for bringing us a –“National Recreation Area”—NOT
MORE GOOD JOBS!!!! And while some argue that Reagon Era Economics helped us
here in the North Coast, the “Clinton-Bush Bubble “ really tended to more “SHIFT
GROWTH” in our region than really create “REAL NEW GROWTH”!!! My opinion
on this is based on my observation of—Rust Belt Blight in our inner city together
with public housing as being most of the new homes there and “BOOMING BURBS”
around our city. And --THE SURVEY SAYS???—We are every year also suffering
REGIONAL DECLINS IN POPULATION!!!—SO WHERE IS THE REAL
GROWTH IN OUR REGION???
------THANK GOD FOR OUR GREAT “D” and “R” LEADERSHIP—
Almost everyone in our Region feels either the “D” or “R” yearly election
Loto will save us all if only one or the other could get there total way and lead
us. I also feel that way but only if they “BOTH” first—“ACCEPT THAT THEY BOTH
HAVE REALLY FAILED OUR REGION THUS FAR!!!!
We need real—real change in our political thinking. But first—Let’s
talk objective failure and then you can “PIN THE TAIL ON THE
POLITICAL CANDIDATE --if needed.
-----IT’S ALL THE FAULT OF THOSE GREEDY UNIONS----
I graduated from high school in Akron, Ohio in 1971. I saw the loss
loss of jobs first hand in our region as the rubber workers and companies
never solved the real problem. Factory workers left, office jobs mostly
stayed, with a –net loss of income in our region and a steady population
decline. IT IS NOT ALL BAD!!!—or –IS IT???—
----IT’S ALL THE FAULT OF THOSE GREEDY CORPORATIONS---
Later, I then studied Economics at the University of Akron and became
A social studies high school teacher. Then law school at Cleveland State
and I have been a litigation attorney for over 30 years. I studied Antitrust
Law and Federal Labor Laws in school and based on my background
and observations decided “IT MUST BE THOSE GREEDY CORPORATIONS”
that took away our jobs. I always felt Washington and our locals there did
nothing to help—BUT WHAT COULD THEY DO—IT’S A FREE COUNTRY!!!
RIGHT!!!—MAYBE—NOT SO RIGHT--
Very early, I saw a problem with the NLRA Collective Bargaining Laws as
did many others. But how I saw to maybe --FIX IT—was probably too simple
in this world of “PHD” reasoning. But here goes anyway—
Just change the law to create a FAIR system of-- BINDING ARBITRATION—and
END the ability of Unions to STRIKE!! If Labor hires Good Lawyers and Corporations
do the same and they then pick 3 professionals approved by the feds –All relevant
evidence will be presented to them and the public too—IF LABOR & MANAGEMENT
CAN’T AGREE--WE THE PEOPLE WILL DO IT FOR THEM—I THINK TO SAVE
---------DID HE SAY –--“SAVE AMERICA”--?????---------
What is this—“THE GREAT RECESSION ANYWAY??? Well—it could be argued first
that--IT IS ONLY REALLY” GREAT” IN THE WESTERN WORLD???—RIGHT—
And I think---WE THE PEOPLE ARE GETTING HIT THE HARDEST!!!—?? –
I know Economics teaches that Up & Down is Normal—But—as American Companies
endlessly search for cheep labor and profits, and as that hunt keeps leading then to the
WRONG PLACES for WE THE PEOPLE—WE NEED TO SOLVE THE –LABOR—
UNION --ISSUE---NOW!!! Also, remember—Macro Economics always focused on
SHORT RUN & LONG RUN—and –Never gave any hope that OTHER NATIONS—
WOULD ALWAYS CARE ABOUT THEMSELVES ---FIRST!!!—IS IT POSSIBLE
THE GLOBAL MODEL HAS LOST THAT PERSPECTIVE???-When you throw places
Like CHINA into the mix, I Don’s think that works at all!!!!---DO YOU!!!
---------THE AMAZING GRACE---&----LITIGATION-----
I know I was trained as a trial lawyer—but--- if we could throw collective bargaining
outcomes into a QUICK—OPEN—FAIR—OBJECTIVE—FINAL--Litigation Process—
like federal mandated arbitration so that when a company says, I can’t do that and still
make a profit, the process could help everyone see the realities of that. What we do now
is a process of—NEVER REALLY KNOW---RIGHT?? And, then, the “D’s” line up
with the Unions and the “R’s” line up with the Management-- and --all the jobs end up
in—CHINA ---RIGHT??? ----PROBLEM---When the RUST BELT lost jobs—they
mostly stayed in America—RIGHT??—So how can “WASHINGTON” be full of RICH
--------THE AMAZING GRACE---WASHINGTON-- is still—WE THE PEOPLE—
Washington has lost it’s way in the past—RIGHT??—But to fix it—you first must show:
WE THE PEOPLE-IT IS REALLY BROKEN---AND THEN OUTLINE ---A REAL
Everyone who runs for office there days vows to—CHANGE WASHINGTON—
--BUT—What if someone with no intention of running –HAS A PLAN THAT MIGHT
WORK—You see—That person does not need to be a “D” or an “R” –Just a social
minded American—RIGHT??—No contributions needed—No political ties—Just
workable outcomes to be considered in ---WASHINGTON—
There will never be another “MARTIN” -- but what he saw & did -might be done again
at some impact, if we can all just—Look & See—
As the song goes, the solution is “over-there” far away—or so it seems-
The average workers over there must be “PAID A FAIR WAGE—IN A SAFE WORK
PLACE--WITH OTHER BENEFITS” or WE THE PEOPLE WILL BE LIKE THEM
IN THE LONG RUN”—WHICH MAY HAVE ALREADY BEGUN—“THE GREAT
SOLUTION #1—FIX COLLECTIVE BARGAINING IN THE WEST
SOLUTION #2---THE WEST MUST MANDATE WORKING CONDITIONS & WAGES ON IMPORTS–JUST LIKE IT DOES SAFETY STANDARDS ON IMPORTED PRODUCTS
---------THE WIN---WIN—WIN----GLOBAL ECONOMY---
WIN #1—More Good Jobs in the West—As those workers are better off—they will buy goods from WE THE PEOPLE—in greater amounts and our workers will maintain a high standard of living as they gain—NOW—We got RIGH GETTING RICHER THERE—and I fear WORSE—In China—Only the “Hate American’s” are really in the-CLUB?
WIN #2—If Management does not—FEAR LABOR—and –Labor does not—FEAR MANAGEMENT—WHY NOT RETURN SOME FACTORIES TO THE RUST BELT??—While we still can also feel the GOOD of the GLOBAL ECONOMICS-
BESIDES—I LOVE “SAMS CLUB” for some things but really-really fear it may not be there for our Grandkids unless—WE THE PEOPLE—MAKE IT SO!!!!
America’s fairness to Workers-created the-World as we know it—as it spread-UNIONS ARE GOOD—MANAGEMENT IS GOOD—BOTH –GOOD IN WESTERN HISTORY
ONCE FAIRNESS --WAS MANDATED BY—LAW—We can’t create law in CHINA—or—INDIA—Directly—BUT—If WE CAN –BRIBE—STATES- TO DO RIGHT –WITH NEW ROADS—The WEST—Can change the World—by forcing LABOR FAIRNESS IN THE 3rd WORLD & CHINA & INDIA—with IMPORT-REGULATIONS ON FAIR WAGES & SAFE FACTORIES—JUST LIKE “SAFE PRODUCT REQUIREMENTS”
WIN #3—If we do the above—The political world will be SAFER –less prone to hate due to GREATER FAIRNESS & EQUALITY WORLD WIDE—
—“THE HIGHER PLAIN” created by our FOUNDERS will only spread to places that—SEE IT’S VALUE—Prosperity will help that—BUT ONLY IF—THE WEST UNDERSTANDS THAT—PROSPERITY ALONE—WILL NOT DO IT—Just ask the JEWISH SURVIVORS of WWll Germany—RIGHT??—WE THE PEOPLE MUST—MUST—NEVER FORGET—People are just People—AS WE LOOK AT HISTORY—ANYTHING IN THE PAST or WORSE—CAN COME AROUND AGAIN AND DID AGAIN & AGAIN & AGAIN until sometime after 1776—& 1862—When the world began to Change--& Change For the Better—“TOO AMERICAN??—TOO WESTERN??” (I was told that once by someone who still teaches -Law-in college)
I SAY---IF WE HAVE BECOME TOO POLITICALLY CORRECT TO SEE “WHO WE ARE AND THE JOB OUR FOUNDERS GAVE US—WE WILL SEE AGAIN A “LOWER PLAIN” --BUT—WORSE & UNLIKE ANYTHING SEEN BEFORE—
No need for all that though—All we need are some of –WE THE PEOPLE—In WASHINGTON—To WAKE UP!!!!—
-----------GREEN IS RELATIVE----------
When I look out over Lake Erie at present—No more dead fish as seen in my youth—It is
in my opinion a Modern Example of Everything “Good About America”—PROBLEM
SEEN—PROBLEM SOLVED—Maybe not perfect yet—but getting there—
Study though “GREEN” – “Over-there” in places far away—And you will fear for
your Grandchildren even if you don’t consider “Global Warming”
In law school we learned than “Water Rights” were one of the early common disputes.
Why??—Because there was always someone-up river –putting --???—in the water which
flowed to those –down river –or using it all before it got there.
Just Remember—CHINA & all the Over-there- places -only—SEEM—FAR AWAY!!!
