Lies That the Democrats Told Me

Without lies and hoaxes, Democrats would have nothing to gin up fear among their base.

Published

on

August 11, 2017 was the day when protests turned violent in Charlottesville, VA. Since then, the Left’s media machine has worked non-stop to create and perpetuate the “Big Lie” about what President Trump said. Joe Biden ‘campaigned’ using the big lie and still spews it. Yet, the fabrication that Trump praised white supremacists is completely at odds with the truth:

“Excuse me, they didn’t put themselves down as neo-Nazis, and you had some very bad people in that group,” he said, verbatim. “But you also had people that were very fine people on both sides. You had people in that group – excuse me, excuse me, I saw the same pictures you did. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of, to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.”

Days later Trump said, verbatim, “Racism is evil, and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK,  neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”

The Left’s lie has been perpetuated to this day, despite the irrefutable evidence to the contrary. The Left wants you to believe that Donald Trump is so bad he should not be allowed to run for any future office, so there second sham impeachment trial is under way.

Don’t Take My Word for It

They want you to think that Trump is a racist who harms black people. Before he ran for president, however, he was honored or cited on many occasions by the NAACP and other African-American groups. Amazingly, that all changed the moment he ran for president.

Dr. Ben Carson, former U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, laid out, in less than five minutes, President Trump’s extraordinary measures that improved the lives and livelihoods of Black Americans.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=4uDXiCGVLoc

Dr. Carson said that if Donald Trump is a racist, he’s done a bad job at it. Most who watched the video quickly abandoned the notion that President Trump was anything other than a most benevolent president to minorities. Indeed, he wanted them to succeed and to be part of the economic mainstream

All through the 2020 presidential election season, assorted parties accused the President of this and that, non-stop. Why? The Left’s very existence is grounded in lies, manipulation, and hoaxes, and they have many weapons in their arsenal. Most of what’s featured on CNN and MSNBC, among other news organizations, represents a lie, a highly biased view, or a hoax.

 Dependent on Lies and Hoaxes

The web perpetuates the lies. The top Internet companies including Google, Facebook, Amazon, Wikipedia, Apple, and to some degree Microsoft, are all founded and/or run by multi-billionaires. As we’ve witnessed, they manipulate their sites to disparage or silence conservative views. They inflate the prominence and popularity of Leftist views. If Leftist views could stand on their own merit, why would the Internet giants need to prop them up, while deflating the other side?

Virtually everything that Donald Trump did as President was to the displeasure of Internet giants and major news sites. The Left eagerly perpetrated lie after lie, and hoax after hoax, and legions of under-informed citizens only caught the sound bites: The lie that George Papadopoulos, Carter Page, and other minor players in the Trump campaign colluded with Russians to throw the 2016 election, and the mega-hoax that Trump himself conspired with Russia.

The hoax that an actor, Jussie Smollett, was attacked by two white men wearing MAGA hats; the hoax that Covington Catholic High School students disparaged a Native American; and the hoax that racial slurs were found on black cadets message boards at the Air Force Academy preparatory school.

Bearing False Witness

The list of lies and hoaxes is nearly endless: The hoax currently dominating in mainstream media surveys indicates that Trump incited the Capitol riot. He did not.

If the truth is on your side, do you need to doctor the evidence? Christine Blasey Ford was violated by Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh? It’s likely that she never met him. African-Americans and Hispanics were not favoring the GOP in record numbers? Guess again. Record numbers of illegal aliens died seeking to reach our borders? Such numbers occurred during the Obama years.

Without lies and hoaxes, the Left in general, and Democrats in particular would have nothing to gin up fear among their base, and nothing on which to stand. So, they create falsehoods and elaborate hoaxes that the media breathlessly air. The once honorable Washington Post published a pure-garbage feature titled, “How white supremacy infected Christianity and the Republican Party.”

Decades into their lies and hoax creation, many people now see them for what they are. Granted, Democrats fool some of the people all of the time. As each hoax is exposed, however, more people – and all 75+ million Trump voters — see Democrats for who they are: The party of hoaxes.

Work-Life Balance in Your Life

It the ability to experience a sense of control and to stay productive and competitive at work while maintaining a happy, healthy home-life

Published

on

Work-life balance (WLB) is the ability to experience a sense of control and to stay productive and competitive at work while maintaining a happy, healthy home-life with sufficient leisure. WLB, also referred to by some as work-life harmony, work-life shift, work-life blend, work-life effectiveness, or work-life integration, requires focus and awareness despite seemingly endless tasks and activities competing for our time and attention.

Work-life balance entails having what I call “breathing space” for yourself each day, feeling a sense of accomplishment while not being consumed by work, and having an enjoyable domestic life without short-changing career obligations. WLB is rooted in whatever fulfillment means to you within the course of a day and a week, and however many years you have left in your life.

Supporting Disciplines

Several disciplines support work-life balance though, individually, none are synonymous with work-life balance:

1) Self Management

Sufficiently managing one’s self can be challenging, particularly in getting proper sleep, exercise, and nutrition. Self-management is the recognition that effectively using the spaces in our lives is vital, and that life, time, and available resources are finite. It means becoming captain of our own ship; no one is coming to steer for us.

2) Time Management

Effective time management involves making optimal use of your day and the supporting resources that can be summoned – you can only keep pace when your resources match your challenges. Time management is enhanced through appropriate goals and discerning what is both important and urgent, versus important OR urgent. It entails understanding what you do best and when, and assembling the appropriate tools to accomplish specific tasks.

3) Stress Management

By nature, societies tend to become more complex over time. In the face of increasing complexity, stress on the individual is inevitable. More people, noise, and distractions, independent of one’s individual circumstances, require each of us to become more adept at maintaining tranquility and being able to work ourselves out of pressure-filled situations. Most forms of multi-tasking ultimately increase our stress, while focusing on one thing at a time helps decrease stress.

4) Change Management

In our fast-paced world, change is virtually the only constant. Continually adopting new methods, adapting old, and re-adapting all methods is vital to a successful career and a happy home life. Effective change management involves offering periodic and concerted efforts so that the volume and rate of change at work and at home does not overwhelm or defeat you.

5) Technology Management

Effectively managing technology requires ensuring that technology serves you, rather than abuses you. Technology has always been with us, since the first walking stick, spear, flint, and wheel. Today, the rate of technological change is accelerating, brought on by vendors seeking expanding market share. Often you have no choice but to keep up with the technological Joneses, but rule technology, don’t let it rule you.

6) Leisure Management

The most overlooked of the work-life balance supporting disciplines, leisure management acknowledges 1) the importance of rest and relaxation, 2) that “time off” is a vital component of the human experience, and 3) that one can’t indefinitely short-change leisure without repercussions. Curiously, too much of the same leisure activity, however enjoyable, can lead to monotony. Thus, effective leisure management requires varying one’s activities.

Entirely Achievable

Achieving work-life balance does not require radical changes in what you do. It is about developing fresh perspectives and sensible, actionable solutions that are appropriate for you. It is fully engaging in life with what you have, right where you are, smack dab in the ever-changing dynamics of your existence.

Work-life Balance: The Enduring Quest

Organizations today recognize the importance of supporting employees’ well-being while maintaining productivity

Published

on

Thank goodness that organizations today increasingly recognize the importance of supporting employees’ well-being while maintaining productivity. As such, the corporate quest for work-life balance, harmony, and integration has gained great prominence.

Key Aspects

Here are 12 key aspects of this pursuit gleaned from a variety of programs:

1. Offer Flexible Work Arrangements: Offering flexible work schedules, remote work options, and part-time opportunities allows employees to better balance their professional and personal lives.

2. Have Clear Policies: Establishing clear policies and guidelines regarding work hours, overtime, and expectations helps employees manage their time effectively.

3. Support Mental Health: Providing access to mental health resources, counseling, and stress management programs can address employees’ emotional well-being.

4. Give Leave: Offering generous paid time off, including vacation, sick leave, and parental leave, allows employees to address personal and family needs without fear of repercussions.

5. Prevent Burnout: Encouraging employees to disconnect from work-related technology after hours helps prevent burnout and supports work-life separation.

6. Support Workload Management: Ensuring that employees have manageable workloads and realistic deadlines prevents excessive stress and long working hours.

7. Provide Wellness Programs: Implementing wellness initiatives, such as fitness facilities, nutrition programs, and health screenings, promotes a healthier work-life balance.

8. Enable Employee Assistance Programs: Such programs provide confidential counseling and support services for employees facing personal challenges.

9. Promote a Culture of Balance: Company culture plays a significant role in work-life balance. Leaders should model a balanced lifestyle, and the organization should celebrate accomplishments beyond work.

10. Maintain Continuous Communication: Engaging in open dialogues with employees about their needs and concerns regarding work-life balance fosters a supportive and responsive corporate culture.

11. Empower Workers with Training and Education: Providing training on time management, stress reduction, and resilience equips employees with the skills to better balance their lives.

12. Leverage Remote Work Policies: Crafting clear remote work policies and expectations ensures that remote employees have a structured work-life balance.

Bringing in the Hired Gun

As the world’s only holder of the title, “The Work-Life Balance Expert®,” as issued by the USPTO,  I am often summoned by organizations to enhance work-life balance for their troops. In all, I’ve delivered programs and spoken to 960 groups. Below depicts an encounter with a company who shall remain nameless for reasons of confidentiality. See if this squares up with your experience in your organization.

The following responses were derived as a result of my sending a questionnaire to the conference meeting planner where I was to be their keynote speaker. I requested the names of 10 people who would be in the audience. I called each of them to discuss their current challenges. Here are their actual replies to three of my questions:

1) If you could magically resolve a work-life balance issue, what would it be?

* Have more breathing room between high-level projects.
* Accomplish more during the workday and leave mentally free.
* Hire more staff!
* Take vacations and time off with no big pile ups when returning.

* Be allowed to take some Fridays off and catch up on much needed appointments.
* Reduce the number of pop-up requests and questions flying at me all day long so that I could ACTUALLY do what I need to do each day.
* Be approved to work from home or adjust my hours. My personal time isn’t respected.

2) What do you seek to derive from attending a session such as mine?

* Manage my time more effectively.
* Gain tools to embrace life while living it
* Develop stronger skills.
* Make work-life balance a reality in our company’s work-first culture.

* Acquire strategies, tips, or ideas to re-think my approach.
* Learn to change my focus, to be more productive, balanced, and focused.
* Be able to balance the few things that I do control during my day.
* Discover tips for keeping my staff in balance.

* Gain a realistic expectation of what we can achieve or experience.
* Develop a more positive outlook for the group.

3) Are there any observations you could offer?

* Work-life balance is a huge topic organization-wide. We are high performers who want to do a good job. We compromise our personal lives to meet work demands. We have to keep pace with the leaders and teams we support. If we don’t, we’ll be deemed unresponsive.

* A frenetic pace seems to be inherent in this company. Our team does a good job of emphasizing work-life balance; the problem lies with the surrounding divisions that thrive on working all the time, for no good reason. Yes, we are in a global space, working in different time zones, but some of these people are beyond the pale.

* What I love about this organization are the people. They are dedicated to the cause and truly want to deliver reliable, affordable, dynamic, and versatile solutions to our customers. However, our frenetic pace isn’t necessary. Not every project is the most vital. Not every problem is an emergency. Not every request has to be filled now.

* If in charge, I’d implement a more efficient, logical pace organization-wide. If we all took a breath and reevaluated how we work, in a more focused environment, we might find that we could produce better results with less stress.

Resonates Strongly

As you can see, the topic of work-life balance resonates strongly among today’s career professionals. Going forward, may more organization recognize and acknowledge the critical role that employee wellness and work-life balance has on the organization’s overall effectiveness.
