Report by Howard Myers
Kevin’s “Don’t Jump!” Tour
Kevin started by saying that he is beginning his “Don't Jump” tour. He claims to be an optimist but also a realist. How have we changed the land of enchantment to land of enrichment (of others)? We find ourselves with a leader that is the 'anti-Lincoln' in a civil war where nobody wins. How does it feel to be at war with your brother?
As a black conservative when I tell people I didn't vote for Obama or have my own ideas, they get very upset. Our country is very polarized. I am becoming less tolerant of the left; maybe it is a sign of maturing. But they irk me.
I am not advocating you hang out with liberals, but this is dividing our country. Obama has ruined more relationships than internet porn.
Kirstin Powers said she understands conservativism. She grew up with liberals in a bubble and no other ideas were considered. When she looked at conservativism she found more open minds than in the liberal world.
Try to talk about gun control with liberals…you can’t do it. They are being controlled by the media and don’t know anything else.
Talk about crazy did you see where Beyonce spent $200,000 for a birthday party for a one year old? In my family if anyone spends that much on a birthday party for a one year old, we would beat the crap out of them.
And now Republicans raised the debt ceiling without even a fight. Chicago is looking for money and decides they are going to tax tennis shoes 25 cents. The world is crazy.
In the US there are 350 million gun owned by 84 million people. If you have your guns you have life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. Consider what the government is doing to you now, and you have a gun! Can you imagine what they would do if you were unarmed?
We defeated the Nazis, the Japanese and others. And now our biggest enemy is some liberal, caviar eating schmuck trying to take our freedoms.
We can spend time wondering how it happened or work on solutions.
What’s with this foreign aid? We give money to every country in the world it seems; Money we don't even have. With all that why can't we sell America? This is the America people leave their homeland for. Why don't liberals sell what we have?
Would you put John Kerry in charge of the American marketing dept? That is what the State Dept is. And John Kerry hates America! How are we going to sell people on the idea that America is a great country?
The left has trained us to believe the past. Walter Cronkite used to sign off with, 'That is the way it is' and we believed him; We believed the media. (Black people didn't because we were represented as crooks). Used to be we had a healthy respect for the media until it started to lose its mind. People would sometimes ask him why he does not vet what people post on his site, but he didn't go to journalism school (which I think is a good thing). But the media whose job it is to actually report facts doesn't vet what they publish and they all took oaths to be a journalist.
You want to know a dirty secret about Benghazi?, he asked. A black man named Johnnie Carson is U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs. He is the one the most involved in this. Have we ever heard him questioned or asked to testify? No, we have heard nothing from or about him.
The media wants you to believe Obama is a hunter or at least a shooter. That photo they released is fake; it was photo shopped. And they said that photo is classified??? How crazy is that?!?! They said not to photo-shop the photo so the first thing we did was photo-shop it.
We do everything backwards in the US. Instead of looking at gun control, we should be looking at hammer control. The headlines should say ’84 million gun owners killed nobody today’.
How many people were killed with assault rifles each year? 325.
How many were killed with a hammer ? 450. We need hammer control.
And buses? Did you know that 4,000 – 6,000 people are killed by buses every year?
Look at immigration. There is no such thing as an illegal immigrant. Immigration is a legal activity. If you are here illegally you are an illegal alien. The left likes to change the language. Let’s deal with the crime from the victim’s point of view instead of from the criminal’s point of view.
If you have a plant that makes buggy whips and a competitor opens a shop and wants your workers he can offer more benefits. You can fight back by matching or exceeding what he offers. That is the free market and the benefits are an enticement to work there. If the government gets involved and makes it a requirement to provide these services, they are no longer a benefit but they are an entitlement. The government can squash a free market.
Kevin briefly introduced a new program he is working on called 100,000 Black Ambassadors. The intent is to find a capitalist and match them with a young potential capitalist to serve as an intern. This will develop into a conveyor belt of new capitalists being generated.
Did anyone hear in the news about this being the 150th anniversary of the Republicans freeing the slaves? You would think this would be a big deal, but nothing. It is very important because that is why Harry Bellefonte doesn’t have to pick bananas for some white guy and Obama doesn't have to get coffee for Clinton.

In answer to a question Kevin did recommend the movie ‘Runaway Slave’ and not only because he is in it. This is a movie about a black man running from the plantation represented by the government.
Kevin’ talk was very well received and he signed and sold all books he brought with him.
