Imagine a Wildcat CEO with a Bully Pulpit
"I'm pissed off and people like it..."
[Click, click, fiddles with mic, clears his throat, looks around, frowns, mutters, “I’m so goddamn mad I’ve got smoke coming out of my ears,” and starts talking into the mic]
Folks, through these live stream broadcasts twice a week on this channel, I’ve built up a big audience.
Much bigger than I expected.
Maybe that’s because I’m pissed off and people like it.
Two days ago, I talked to you about what it really takes to run my farm machinery company, and we had over a million viewers.
Today I want to say this. I’ll hire ANYBODY who can do his damn job. I don’t have quotas for race, religion, gender, age. You won’t find that bullshit here.
On the other hand, I don’t hire people who can’t do the job. In other words, my company runs on merit. Period.
That idea is going down the fucking toilet these days.
It can’t be lost, or we’re all going down the toilet. Getting and keeping a job when you can’t DO the job is bullshit. It fails every time. That’s not a goddamn secret.
The fancy word is meritocracy. That’s what I want. I have to fight for it every day.
There are people who want to substitute something else for it. When they first started showing up, I didn’t understand them. I couldn’t figure out what the hell they were saying. But slowly I realized they wanted me to give jobs to incompetent workers. That was their bottom line.
I have to tell you, these advocates for incompetence, a few of them, were really trying to EXTORT me. They said if I didn’t go along with their program, they would expose me as anti-black or anti-woman or anti-disabled or anti-immigrant.
I’m none of those goddamn things. I’m for the guy who can do the job, whoever he is. If a woman can do the job, she’s hired. If a person is fat or skinny or crippled and can DO the job, that’s all I want to know. I’d hire a bull moose if he could work on an assembly line.
I also run a charity. It’s self-serving. It’s a training school. You can enroll for nothing. No charge. We give people whatever they need. If they can’t read, we teach them to read. If they don’t know a wheel from a rod, we show them the difference. We train them up so we can hire them and give them jobs with us in our factory, where we make the farm equipment.
They have to work their asses off in the training school, and if they make it, we hire them. If they can’t make it, we let them go.
We get high schools graduates who can’t read or write. We do our best with them. We even teach basic arithmetic when we have to. In our school, we don’t keep track of how many people are black or white or Hispanic or men or women. We don’t issue reports on those numbers. We’re only interested in how much ability we can instill in a person.
My FREE school has been investigated for failing to issue certain reports. That brings me face to face with a bunch of bullshit from little bureaucrats. I believe you know what I’m talking about. I’m talking about a jungle of government regulations that assume everybody is a criminal. But the criminals are the people investigating me. They should be in jail. They’re some form of crawling sniveling life I never knew existed. But here they are. Trying to piss all over me. I’ve stood up to every one of their investigations, and I’m suing two agencies right now. In the days to come, I’ll be telling you a lot about those suits.
Here’s a heads up. I have three friends who own their own productive companies, and they’re starting their own live stream channels. I’m a polite well-mannered guy compared to them. I think you’ll want to watch their broadcasts.
Like me, they’re going to be talking to you a few times a week. No holds-barred. We aim to move this failing country into a meritocracy. It’s a very big goal, I know. But we’re ready to take on all comers.
You should know I run a non-union shop. My pay scale for employees and benefits are better than comparable unionized companies. I have nothing against unions. But when they’re colluding with government assholes who walk in the door and tell me I have to set up hiring quotas for this and that and give ridiculous extended leave for different reasons, I tell them to get lost. So I’ve received death threats. I routinely report the threats to the feds. I’ve never heard back about their supposed investigations. I believe the feds are shitcanning my reports. My lawyers are looking into that with a Freedom of Information suit.
Is that the America you want? Where I have to sue to find out whether somebody who says he’s going to kill me gets off the hook, and all of a sudden he’s the good guy?
I don’t make excuses for these cowards who crawl out from a slime pit in the dark and say they’re going to kill me. I don’t say their mommies and daddies were shitbirds and that’s why they want to kill me. I don’t say when they were young they were boys who wanted to be girls and they couldn’t get puberty blockers. I say they’re evil. You know the basic difference between good and evil. So do I. But we’re being told by our own leaders that we’re wrong and misguided and we need our minds and hearts changed.
I’m not having my heart and mind changed. I’m not going to fucking seminars where people tell me I’m guilty…
---And so after a year, there are 30 of these like-minded company owners using live stream bully pulpits every day, and the combined total of their audience is bigger than the top-rated series’ on network television.
And all the people who whine and moan and say the country can’t be saved are peeking out of their basements and wondering what the hell is going on.
And the bully pulpits are just getting rolling.
Somewhere in a large US city, a former prosecutor with 20 years of experience in the trenches is mounting his own live stream channel and getting ready to explain every day what simple honest law and order really means---and once he starts shooting fireworks, other righteously pissed-off prosecutors will drag their asses off the couch and join the fray.
And against all the supposed laws of the universe, the fucking iceberg of society will start to move and melt.
