  1. It’s been a real PITA to watch videos. I’ve got things to do, people to see and places to go, so it seems I am done with these videos for awhile.

    Changes require testing. I’d guess testing didn’t happen, but the changes sure did.

    1. Don’t be an asshole “king”. Shit happens. Paul’s the most engaged resource for hi fidelity. Looks like he’s now directing his staff to accommodate
      your busy calendar.

  2. Hey Paul!
    I want you to know that, I agree with everything you said in your video!
    I don’t remember who once recorded this song, but I heard it countless of times on the radio, when I was a baby boy.
    “What the world needs now, is love sweet love.”
    Everything you said in your video, lines up with that song.
    I agree that we need to quit judging other people, and just try to get along with each other.
    Everybody is different, but you don’t need to let that stand in the way of reaching out to someone, with open arms.
    If we all done that, this world would be a better place to live.

  3. Amen to everything you said. What we need is love and peace.Condolences to all effected by the recent shootings in Boulder. Once more we appear to be an intolerable people but let us someday figure out how to cure this stain.

  4. Thanks for sharing this with us Paul.

    I’m reminded of a line from ‘Desiderata’, a poem written in 1927 by American Max Ehrmann.

    “Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit.”

    You strike me as someone who strives to behave at the other end of the scale. I think we could do a lot worse than trying to live according to your sentiments (and those expressed by Mr Ehrmann 🙂 ).

    1. MikeK,
      In Australia we have, for many decades, considered Americans to be generally “loud & aggressive”.
      So when you come a cross guys like PM, it is refreshing to be able to dispel the myth 😉

      1. Hey FR,

        Being a fellow Aussie (I live down on the Mornington peninsula in Victoria), I can have a chortle at that. However, it’s refreshing to know that there are still plenty of good Yanks across the pond. 😀

  5. Fiscally conservative, we can throw that out. Neither party is fiscally conservative anymore. One party might be a little more fiscally conservative than the other but that’s about as good as it gets. We are drowning in debt and it keeps rising. Unfunded liabilities are over 125 trillion dollars. With the amount of debt that is mounting we can only get that under control by growing the economy and by easing regulations and taxes on corporations and bringing jobs back to our country not destroying jobs. Growing debt will never produce prosperity, we are screwing our children.

    We need to be energy independent. China and Russia are not going to go with the new green deal so they will kick our asses economically because green costs too much right now to change to and it’s much less efficient. If the rest of the world isn’t going to play by the same rules pollution will not be reduced, it will just shift to countries that don’t give a damn and they will overtake us economically. Can our corporations compete if they are forced into a new green deal? They will just pack up and leave this country. We need to sell more product then we buy from the world.

    Close the trade deficit. We need to put our country first or be taken advantage of by the rest of the world that puts themselves first. I love trees, clean water and fresh air but not to the point where it destroys an economic advantage over the rest of the world. Under the previous administration we still had the tightest clean air and water regulations in the world. Go to China and see how clean their air and water is. We close the trade deficit gap by putting tariffs on countries that flood us with cheap product while not buying our products. We need an equal playing field so our labor can compete with the type of labor imposed on it’s people by countries like communist China.

    NAFTA was a disaster and so were the former trade policies with China but I see this new administration is taking us right back to the old trade policies and destroying our energy independence. Oil and gas prices are going to rise again and that’s like another tax.

    NATO was also a disaster with other countries not paying their fair share. The world health organization also dropped the ball when they defended China’s handling of the Corona virus that originated in their country. China shut down travel within it’s country but allowed travel to other countries. Of course Trump was a racist when he imposed travel restrictions to and from China.

    Oh and racial discrimination is not systemic in this country nor is it divided by party lines. That is BS one side likes to play for political reasons when they cannot get their way or to try and force their agenda through by demonizing the other side.

    1. Joe,
      The whole world economy is one huge Ponzi Scheme.
      The IMF guesstimates that the world is US$220 Trillion in debt.
      The world has been living beyond it’s means for at least 50 years now.
      The GFC of 2008 was just a small sample of what’s to come.
      Try & explain that to your children & grand-children.
