2014 | Agreement to Incorporate | Enlightened Media Group LLC

Agreement to Incorporate – Enlightened Media Group, LLC

Enlightened Media Group LLC - Changing the World - Just In Time

Executive Summary

Enlightened Media Group, LLC will be incorporated as a Nevada LLC with seed capital and assets and creative properties and alliances contributed by the founders including existing Joint Venture relationships between large hosting companies with server farms all over the world and a virtually unlimited number of hits, and distribution channels to be used to capitalize creative works through independent distribution channels and main stream media on the web, on streaming TV channels with a proprietary streaming media player on thousands of websites. Through alliances and relationships with mainstream film and music distribution channels and FAME held by the management team and their existing relationships and assets including the ability to offer streaming independent media with all the capabilities of Youtube and other existing digital media distribution channels, the business of ethical investment in creative works will be conducted.

The unique combination of these huge collective resources and distribution resources for feeding hits, markets, celebrity endorsements, search engine placement, influence and rankings, product placement branding, advertising on millions of pages and monetisation through the sale of products thus will facilitate advertising sales and instant revenues.

Ethical  Investments will be used to put people to work independently all over the world on a level playing field facilitated by modern technology and totally free immediate distribution thus turning the whole media world into a creative meritocracy for the talented, gifted and enlightened; devoid of gatekeepers, casting couches, and organized crime.

The company will raise 100,000,000 to be a managed fund for facilitating and funding of individual creative works, with the overhead and expansion funded by immediate and existing advertising revenues, other digital, intellectual,  and real assets; and rights being contributed by the founders.  This funding will be raised in three stages:

  1. This regulation D Rule 506 Nonpublic ownership shares offering for seed funding of  up to 100,000,000 which will be used to qualify the startup for a successful and imminent  public offering
  2. An Existing relationship with an International Private Equity Fund structured to fund Humanitarian Projects and Entertainment Projects internationally without limitations to region or country or language, soon to be publicly listed in the USA as well as other jurisdictions and has just completed the acquisition of Iastra Broadcasting Corp from Alexander P. Thorn.
  3. A subsequent public offering with existing properties, distribution contracts, reach all over the world, and advertising sales revenues from a digitally enhanced “boots on the ground” local and international independent sales force of two tiers of affiliates and independent agencies and mainstream agencies and channels to create a 1 Billion+ dollar  Hedge Fund to be managed and used to fund such ethical investments and change the world.

Being merged in, in addition to other assets, for ownership shares at $10.00 USD per share: a car dealership in the auction capital of the world, a credit repair company (the only legal one in the US not owned by the credit bureaus) and many other assets owned by my clients and contacts worldwide.  - Interested parties please contact me at rothmanisrael@gmail.com

Casino Night Party Tips – How To Host A Successful Casino Party

How to run your Miami-Dade County Fun Prize Casino Party. Of all the Casino Night Party Games the two most popular games in Miami-Dade County are roulette and blackjack. Both of these games are easy to learn and because they are a fast game, they will bring in the fun you are looking for and that the guests will enjoy and remember.   To start your Casino Night Party each guest should receive the same amount of an agreed amount of fun money. If you are holding your party as a fundraising event, you need to make sure that you cover the basic cost of your fun casino from the sale of tickets, just like you would if you had a live concert or a dinner. You also can sell the fun money at an exchange rate – something like $20 of fun money for $10 in real cash. By doing this you ensure that your expenses for the event are covered and that all proceeds from the sale of the fun money go to the charity or whatever the association is that you are doing the fundraising event for.   At the start of the party, all the fun casino night party tables are opened for play and each of the guests fun money is exchanged by the dealers for chips and the fun begins! FYI: The casino night party company that you hire usually provides the dealers as well as a pit boss. Sometimes people want to use their own dealers and just rent the tables, either way, the exchange of the fun money is the same. Fun Money can even custom printed with the fundraisers name, logo, photo etc.   Your tables should be open for between two and three hours and either start your fun casino after your meal or break for everyone to eat! Even GAMBLING FOR FUN is very addictive and you do not want anyone to miss out on dinner.   As your Miami-Dade County event comes to the end you will see that as the guests start running out of their fun money and no longer wish to re-buy, the winners will start to gather together at one table as the other tables start closing down to ensure full tables and fun play. This is when the action and fun really starts heating up. Typically all the guests will gather around the remaining tables to see who will be the top prize winners.   Prizes can and do vary from a bottle of bubbly to a trip around the world and can be presented to the “best” or “worst” gamblers. If you are fund raising, a selection of prizes, well publicized, will always improve the take! Often businesses in Miami-Dade County may be interested in donating items using an Miami-Dade County theme.   Casino Night Parties in Miami-Dade County are fun for all and can include many guests that is why it is becoming one of the fastest growing theme parties for fun, company holiday parties and for fund raising. A Hot Party is the expert for Vegas-style parties in Florida. We are a 3rd generation entertainment company specializing in authentic, top quality casino games with fun, interactive dealers. Delighting your guests is our #1 priority and our network of entertainers are sure to please!  We have options for every occasion, from DJ’s & Dancers to Showgirls & Cigar Rollers.

“Mobile devices will not ONLY “replace” desktops

It is no secret that we are deserting desktops for tablets and smartphones, and following tablet gifting bonanza this Christmas, mobile traffic is set to overtake desktop in early 2014. John Lewis is predicting that 2013 will see the UK’s first ‘mobile Christmas’ with traffic from mobile phones and tablets overtaking that from desktops for the first time on Christmas Day. But not only mobile devices will surpass desktops in terms of traffic, they will excel them in enabling people do so much more on the internet: anytime, anywhere.  And marketers need to be prepared for the always-on consumer.” (source here)

2014 | the Year for Independent Media – SEO – Facebook – Google

35 of 1001 | New Media Revenue Model – 1300 Independent Agents Needed in every City – Earn while you learn!

According to this report by Newspaper Association of America (naa.org): “Circulation revenue for U.S. newspapers recorded a second consecutive year of growth, rising 3.7% to $10.87 billion in 2013, according to preliminary data compiled by the Newspaper Association of America…

Key Findings

  • Total revenue for 2013 was $37.59 billion, a decrease of 2.6% from the prior year. Within that total, $23.57 billion came from advertising across all platforms, $10.87 billion from circulation and $3.15 billion from newly-developing and other sources.
  • Revenue from digital channels — advertising, circulation, digital marketing services, and other — rose 5.8% and accounted for 12% of total industry revenue.
  • The group of newly-developing and other revenue increased 5% overall.  The component of digital agency and marketing services, where newspaper media companies tap into interest among local businesses in the digital environment, increased 43%.
  • Digital advertising rose to $3.42 billion and accounted for 19% of advertising revenue; pure-play (digital only) advertising rose 14%. Mobile advertising revenue, though a small portion of overall total revenue (less than 1%), jumped 77%.
  • The $23.57 billion in advertising represents 63% of total revenue in 2013, declining 6.5% from $25.2 billion in 2012. Traditional print advertising was reduced by 8.6% to $17.3 billion, and makes up less than half of total revenue.

1-New-MediaAt the same time, according to this article by Night Digital Media Center.org: ” A new report on a study of the business models, revenue streams, and sustainability plans for 69 digital journalism start-ups in 10 nations reveals business lessons that could cross borders… In the U.K., we found a few journalistic startups who’ve experimented with business models and have found somewhat unexpected revenue streams — including money made selling something other than their journalism, most often technology.”   In Europe, some journalists have founded digital news agencies that supply content to news outlets. One Irish agency, Storyful, employs “more than 20 journalists who discover and verify newsworthy content from the social web and deliver the vetted material to clients, mostly in traditional media.”   Their conclusion: “Unlike [traditional news outlets], these online publications are not generalists but specialists. They do one or two things exceptionally well and leave the rest to others. It remains to be seen if there is still room for traditional media that tries to bundle ‘all the news that’s fit to print’ on a single website, newspaper, or newscast. Based on our research, the new publishers are not finding sustainability with [that model].” In short, this new model, that we helped to invent by giving away free ads, before there was a craigslist of any size, has evolved; and the market is moving toward a new type of niche/local news and advertising agency, all digital; an independent team of professional bloggers, with a common core of fee splits and independent agency relationships for global collaboration in this new market. We have been earning our livings this way for three and one half years at http://uplog.org. Now we need your help: we cannot grow without building the size of our independent team of professionals who sell the most cost effective digital advertising on the world: organic digital publishing.  This historical digital video explains how we have done this on purpose, and created a duplicate model for you to use in your home town, to be in our business:

1001 Ways to do Business E-book

In the new global digital marketplace known as THE INTERNET, currently:

From the youngest and most tech savvy amongst us, to the nearly blind grandmother with a grandchild on her knee, a home or auto is rarely purchased; a vacation is rarely planned without some online research beforehand.  In this brand new market, where people who were heretofore stuck living and working and commuting in the same  geographical location are now able to live and work anywhere (like me), it is those with a global vision who are reaping the big rewards available from these changes in how people live and work aided by technology.    The rewards from such “global vision” marketing can set an agent, broker, or other businessperson aside from their competition and even feed their largest competitors prospects and clients to them.  By reaching everyone in a geographical area or niche audience with on-topic and interesting content, news, events, holiday venues, music, art and attractions, any audience can be targeted efficiently, economically, and cumulatively:

With our advertising model, there is no per click, per lead, or per column inch. Each category in the phone book is an exclusive for our agency per city, so that non-competitive clients can reach out on each others’ area blogs:  Our Real Estate Masters cover areas:

32 of 1001 | 2014 – What I would do with an empty building to fill it up

According to this recent survey in the Oregonian

More than half of U.S. adults have had to cut back elsewhere to cover their rent or mortgage, according to a new survey.

The John D. And Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation found that 52 percent of adults had made trade-offs. Of those:
21 percent took a second job or worked more hours
19 percent stopped saving for retirement
16 percent accumulated credit card debt
14 percent cut back of health care
12 percent cut back on healthy food
6 percent moved to a neighborhood they considered less safe
3 percent moved to a neighborhood schools are not as good.
Renters were more likely to make such sacrifices than homeowners. Blacks and Hispanics were more likely to have made such sacrifices than whites. And homeowners and renters spending more than 30 percent of their income — a widely held standard of affordability — on housing were more likely to make those sacrifices than those who were spending a smaller share.

There is a solution to this problem, and I am about to tell you what it is!

A simple blueprint to list, fill up, rent out, and sell any number of empty buildings on purpose, at almost no cost:

  • ADD AMENITIES – In my sixty years, I have owned and rented multiple times.  Surprisingly,  the happiest time in my life and my families life was when we rented in a luxury apartment complex with all the amenities (The Boulders on the River in Eugene, Oregon)  With so many of us living and working at home, a few amenities can really enhance rentability, especially fitness and spa facilities, especially for techies like me.  In this building I live in, there was a Curves downstairs years ago, so adding to and upgrading those facilities is not hard.  Since it was mostly offices here, there are not enough bathrooms without the facilities, so rentability for a small apartment with community showers is greatly enhanced by nice facilities.
  • GET WITH MODERN LIFESTYLE CHANGES – With work and living styles changing, due to changes in marriage, divorce, and  a mobile, global society; do we really want to live in the suburbs by ourselves?  Those cracker box houses and chemical lawns were originally designed in the 1950′s when everyone looked like Ozzie and Harriet, and had a day job.   That was a very long time ago, and the model was never sustainable, environmentally sound, or attractive to me.  I am an extrovert, who grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, and I had to go all the way back to the land, raise and can my own food, and get very bored to realize that I can never be happy out in the bushes all by myself with only hillbillies to talk to!  Many of my generation went through this.  Now that I am single (and a great deal of us are, or will be again), I want to be around people.  If I marry again, probably no kids; a beautiful old building in a wonderful town like this one where the cost of living is low, climate is great, and I can have Clint Eastwood and many other celebs as neighbors; world class beaches, dunes, and golf courses  in Bandon and Charleston (close by), only 20 miles from these amazing clean, almost empty beaches; and a bunch of nice nightlife, pubs, restaurants, and recreation from fishing to elk hunting to skiing a short drive away; combined with a mix of young people and hip west coast baby boomers to hang out with in Coos Bay, this is much better for me, and also for many of you. The Oregon coast is beautiful and temperate - 805-827-2450Many years ago I saw a buyer of a dilapidated apartment complex in the Bay Area become independently wealthy when the place filled up instantly with Gay people, much to his surprize!
  • APPEAL TO MODERN THINKERS AND YOUNG PEOPLE – Just as my generation and myself had to explore “back to the land”, so the young people of today want to be exposed to and learn all these things, and their values are actually similar; after all, we were their parents!  Also, I love gardening, as do most people, it is really wonderful and I like to eat fresh clean organic produce.  Most of these downtown buildings, for instance, have flat roofs.  It costs almost nothing to create a roof garden of beds, or to allow the residents to do so.  But for me, a cool garden on the roof, fresh produce from it, and some kids to teach (I have the encyclopedia of organic gardening committed to memory) would be a deal-maker!  Would you believe there is not one single building in this town with a garden and lawn chairs on the roof like that for the residents?  Some building improvements and marketing ideas do not require money, just imagination, and perspective!  A knowledge of the marketplace is irreplaceable.  When was the last time that you evaluated what you want, what you like, what makes you happy, and where you can best find that with low overhead?!   Likewise, if you own a building, and it is empty, you are compelled to listen here!
  • APPEAL TO THE NEW RENTERS – They have bad credit, but it is not because they are a bad risk.  They have a good income, they pay their bills, but things got so bad during the recession that they short-sold their homes, ruining their credit.  Now they rent, and as rents in California and other places skyrocket, there becomes more and more need for affordable low cost housing; and no, it is not my opinion that Government should be involved there.  The building that I am in was remodeled one room at a time, bootstrapping the cost.  Many old guys like me have tools and expertise, and like to work with our hands; would gladly exchange some rent consideration for our time.  Now, all of a sudden, building maintenance, remodeling labor, and gardening on the roof could cost nothing but temporary rent on space that is empty right now!  If you are afraid if execution cal me I will refer you to somebody licenced who is not.   Unfortunately, most rentals are managed by professional property management companies – with no incentive at all to even think like this or listen to any of it, and who, in my opinion, are usually as creative as a rock!  Wouldn’t you rather have your local real estate broker, who has commissioned incentive to see you do well, manage that building for you , fix it up, then sell it??!! Now we are starting to get closer to what I am proposing, read on!
  • THINK ECONOMY OF SCALE AND CONVENIENCE – If I raise some of my own food, barely have to drive, and have very low rent, with recreation of every kind a stones through away, how much money to I really need?  Lets examine the existing model: High rent, high consumption, commuting hours per day, paying huge taxes before we even see our money, in debt to create appearances and buy cars and clothes – this is kind of like slavery without whips and chains, isn’t it?  Why do they want to take away our guns, HMMM??!!  But consider that, if my rent included food and utilities for between 500-1000 month, and I worked from home independently, as so many of us do, and was in a state with no state income tax (like Oregon), I can make 24,000 per year and pay 0 taxes legally in 30 minutes online, and never pay anything in, get all my money from clients money  immediately, without waiting…are you starting to see this…
  • HEALTHY LIVING AND LOCAL BARTER –  I never go to doctors.  I do not trust them, don’t laugh; they are educated by drug companies and chemical companies who support the universities.  But if I have a guy in my building who has a credential or expertise, from herbal medicine to fitness, many services could be offered by somebody who did not need $250,000 per year just to stress themselves into an early grave with the old lifestyle!  I would venture to guess that there some doctors right now who would like to be our resident doctor with an apartment, food, and a steady supply of direct pay cash clients.  My back healed because I could not afford the operations.  They do not do those fusions – almost never now!!  As  a patient, I need to trust my doctor.  (related: The 19 Jobs Where You’re Most Likely To Kill Yourself )  If he is my neighbor and friend, and does not have to worry about money, I trust him.  Likewise I want to trust my food to be safe, my contractor to be honest, my janitor to give a __… I could go on and on.  Those who know me know that I will never be too good or too old to mop a floor, do dishes, dump the garbage – and, frankly, some of the kids these days would benefit by being exposed to me, and I have two beautiful successful kids 33 and 34 to prove it!  Once upon a time, maintenance work was done by people who lived there!  With a farmers market every wednesday one block away, I could almost do without a grocery store, and actually, the evolution of this model could greatly reduce the size and number of super-behemoths in favor of local organic.  From headache remedies and simple medicine, to hand made a local furniture and clothing, to 7-devils Brew, there is really very little that we need an “establishment” for with this model.
  • SHRINK GOVERNMENT  BY REDUCING NEED AND REVENUES  - I put to you that there will be very little crime at all in such a community, too many people watching.  So would we need less police, with less traffic, less budget for tickets, right?  Lets take that train of thought farther, shall we:  how do we shrink our Government?  We don’t, because they are in charge.  The only thing that they are not in charge of is how we spend our time and our money.  So what if we all start on this plan and significantly cut the revenues?!  Yup, that is the only way to shrink government, and we have the power to do it.  If we don’t do it, we will be answering to more and more regulation soon.  If there is a grass roots solution, there is not a need for a government one.   They have been dealing with shortage much longer in England.  they do not have lawns!  They have victory gardens!!  We have a better climate!!!

I am not some fringe type.  I drank Republican cool-aid for may years.  I laughed at first too.  But I believe that sustainable living, in local communities (and empty buildings) is the answer to a great deal of our problems in 2014.  What do you think?  Please let us know!

31 of 1001 | The Value of 1 Believer | Human Capital Defined | The New Metric

Would you invest in your labor?

human capital

To really understand the value of one person who believes in something, you must understand the potential results from one human’s  actions.   To say that this “beauty’ is in the “eye of the beholder” would be a misstatement, because beauty and value are there inherently independent of anyone’s awareness of that value.

And yet, value unperceived is often undervalued, and never capitalized upon.

I believe that every person is a perfect somebody; in other words, everybody could be very good and happy doing something, if it fits them.

I believe that managing ourselves, our “human capital” is of foremost concern, because we manage everything else.

I believe that a job description should be designed to fully utilize human assets; the job should fit the human, and never the other way around.

I believe that when you do what you love for a living; the thing that your very soul cries out to do, the thing that you are made for, you excel.

I believe that every person, from the janitor to the spiritual leader, has value and something to offer to and something to teach the rest of us, even if it is only a uniquely humble attitude that inspires a loving and giving response.

I believe that we are indeed brothers and sisters, joined at the hip physically, emotionally, spiritually – one family, which must function and go forward as a family, a unit, to progress.

In short, in believe in human capital, and I believe that we do a woefully bad job of managing it.

Lets examine, for instance, the standard 9-5 “day job” which is fading away in the modern world:

7:am – Wake Up

9:AM – work after 30 minute commute

11:00 AM 15 minute coffee break stops all work

1:00 PM Lunch 30 minutes

1:30 Back to work

3:30 Another coffee break

5:30 Another commute

6:00 Family time, rest, do it again.

Does anybody really believe that this is living?

As someone who has done this, and worse, for over 30 years; and as a self employed businessman now, I can tell you that there is a better way.

Allow me, if you will , to propose an alternative that is more human friendly:

Sustainable Communities

A stable family with a lawn and two cars in the driveway is no longer the history of most of us.  I was a pioneer in being a “latch key’ child of a single mom – but that background is now the new norm.

In my 60 years alive on this earth, looking back, the happiness times most definitely were not when I was the richest, or poorest.   The very happiest time was when I worked a great deal doing something that was not too bad for a living, auto sales three blocks away, and my kids, stay at home mom, and myself lived in what was, at the time, the first luxury apartment community in Eugene, Oregon: the “Boulders on the River.”

My schedule was not 9-5, so that I had random times off, mostly when the 9-5ers were working.  The facilities at the apartments provided me and the wife kids with everything we needed, including neighbors as friends, to live a good life every minute that we were not working or in school – pools, games, workout facilities, social life, parties…

I did not hate my job, did not spend my life commuting, and I really enjoyed my healthy time off.

Somewhere there is a sane alternative to the way that we live, and we must find it.

Imagine this lifestyle:

  • You live in a sustainable community – it was an empty building in a small town, untill you and your community members moved in, remodeled, and made it into a home.
  • Your job is to tend to the aquaponic garden, or to cook breakfast, or to mow the yard today, or to fix the roof, or to operate your business as an independent professional, or to provide services of any kind to the other community members.
  • You have friends,  families, and children all around you, and you love them and participate in their lives and their upbringing.
  • Your community has workout facilities, a game room, a business center and conference rooms, a pool, sauna, whirlpool, party room..
  • Your spouse and you have your own apartment, and you are also part of the community.
  • You do not have to worry about shelter, food, or company, because your services to the rest of the community pay for these.
  • Your kids have friends, supervision, and plenty of good healthy safe activities to keep them busy when you are away, and they are learning to interface with other people of all ages.

Lets face it: we can never go back to the “Ozzie and Harriett” days, and those days really never existed anywhere but on TV and in the movies anyway.

May we please move forward with this new model?  I have an income and early retirement coming up, will be a grandfather soon.  I still like to party, swim, workout, listen to music, be social…I love kids and two beautiful ones of my own to prove that I am good dad.  Lets some of us just take over some of this empty real estate in this paradise, or yours, shall we?  Lets invest in ourselves, (our human capital) pool our resources and live well with almost no money at all? Any takers?! 805-827-2450  I have an unlimited number of work-from-home jobs that can be located anywhere where there is Internet for bloggers, salespeople, customer service, phones, technical…cooks dishwashers gardeners…what is your human capital?


30 of 1001 | Social Media Builds World-View Perspective in 2014 | Online Dating Changes the World Forever | The Gracie Nakalyango Example

The Internet changes our view of ourselves and the rest of the world.

Example: Meet Gracie Nakalyango in Uganda

Gracie  Nakalyango in Uganda

Gracie is a living doll – 31 years old, single mother of three, looks half her age, is in business for herself to feed and clothe her children ( Abandoned by their father)  and to feed and clothe those of other abandoned and widowed mothers.

What a perspective builder for me!  Gracie is hard working, raises her own garden, makes her own clothes, builds her own buildings, owns her own land, and just simply wants to be somebodies wife and to care for her children.

Where would you find a woman like this in America?  I probably would not.   Many Americans with fussy, lazy, out of shape wives and girlfriends could not even imagine her humbleness, willingness to love and work, and give herself with total faith in God, a committed Christian, spirit filled beyond the understanding of anybody who has never been poor.  A woman who is still a woman, all the way, with all these wonderful qualities, and without a selfish “me first” American mindset; devoid of rampant wasteful consumer attitudes that are so prevalent here.  Gracie does dishes; makes, washes and recycles clothes by hand; raises a garden, and two pigs, and she has her own ministry and school, is self-sufficient out of necessity.  Where would an older American man find a woman of such character, so beautiful and unencumbered by vanity or addictions?

Gracie wants a man older than her, mature, not likely to run off, who will be a strong and good father to her twins and her other child; and they are beautiful beyond belief!  She would gladly relocate, with her kids, to do so.

If racist “world view” thoughts are going through your mind right now, consider that modern genetic research proves that Gracies’ genetics as a young black woman, who is inches taller than this 5′ 7 ” white American of European Jewish decent; her DNA differ less from mine, that that of two thoroughbred dogs from the same mother!  It is now proven that we are all, in fact, brothers and sisters.

With everyone in the world able to talk to everyone in the world, the best and the brightest from all generations and all countries are meeting online, and that “world view” is changing our culture, and our perspective, and our view of ourselves forever; our very genetics are changing.

If I had the money at the moment, I would back her ministry and  her replacement, and bring her here, to care for her and her children.  Her youth, and hard working humility would be hard or impossible to find here, for me, and for many of my divorced, widower and otherwise displaced peers.  We could not find such a young and loving beauty, and such an instant, undemanding,  appreciative family here.

But there are women like Gracie all over the world.  They would come here in a heartbeat if they had the opportunity; and in her culture, she is considered skinny (they like fat women); here, she is a beauty beyond belief;  Model material – you would never imagine that she could have three children and look this good.

According to this article in Forbes: 

A Third of Recently Married Couples Met Online and They’re More Satisfied and Less Likely To Split-Up

“A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that 35% of couples married between 2005 and 2012 met online and that these couples were slightly more likely to stay together and “associated with slightly higher marital satisfaction among those respondents who remained married,” according to the report.”

Who would have thought that  the trend would prove that such unions are less likely to result in the couple splitting up, and “slightly higher marital satisfaction” ?!

As a man who can retire early with enough to support such a family, I can tell you that no American woman would embrace such an opportunity the same way that Gracie would.  As a writer with a tested proven IQ that I wont share here, I can tell you that Gracie is extremely intelligent, nothing wrong with her genetics, healthy, beautiful, smart…only the best, quickest, brightest survive where she is from.

In my opinion, we will all be “Heinz 57″ hybrid mixes someday soon, healthier and less inbred than our ancestors – less bigoted, and more tolerant humans, and I, for one, look forward to that day.  These trends are accelerated by technology, and especially by the Internet and global free communications.

That this is good for mankind, for me, for Gracie and her kids, and, eventually, will change the entire world, is obvious to me.  What do you think?

Perhaps American women, who do not cook, do dishes, wash clothes; who are not the least bit humble or loving or giving; perhaps the selfish and the fleshy will become more like Gracie to compete, and everything will change.  I suspect that it will, and according to almost everyone else, it already has.
