I am sorry to have disappointed you if you clicked on the link to this site with the expectation of experiencing a sexual thrill. This website was created for the purpose of dealing with a very serious matter: the future of the United States of America. Admittedly, I am also attempting to use the f-bomb in a creative way—one that will transform it from the vulgarity it is today, to an acronym that harnesses the anger and anxiety with which We the People are dealing, as we experience our beloved country descending further into fiscal distress. How do we know our country is descending further into fiscal distress? We know so by reading the annual Financial Report of the United States Government. The Report contains, among myriad other details, a discussion of the national debt, also known as the gross federal debt.
In 2007, Tricia and Frank conceived FOLKS UPSET BY THE CAPITAL KARMA: A Shock and Awe Campaign for Political Reform—a political pamphlet in which they expressed their outrage regarding the level of the national debt: Nine Trillion Dollars ($9,000,000,000,000)! As they pumped their pens in protest against fiscal irresponsibility by the representatives of We the People, the co-authors perceived that an angry electorate might be ready, willing, and able to get a new political party started for the purpose of spanking the spendthrifts in Washington, D.C. (the “Current Capitalists” in FOLKS). Tricia and Frank envisioned getting a third major political party started: Folks Upset by the Capital Karma (F.U.C.K.)., in order to deal with the debt, head-on. The partners in political action were excited by the thought of We the People wanting the F.U.C.K. to get a party started.
Less than a year after the publication of FOLKS, Tricia went her separate way, but Frank remained hopeful their pamphlet would someday become relevant, especially since President Barack Obama’s change was not the change Frank had had in mind when he co-wrote FOLKS. Frank believes that that someday was November 8, 2016 when “The FOLKS” elected Donald J. Trump President of the United States of America. On that day, The FOLKS had definitely demonstrated that they were as mad as hell and not wanting to take it anymore—not wanting to take any more fiscal folly continually committed by the political “establishment” representing We the People, in our nation’s capital. Ironically, less than ten years after Tricia and Frank had published in FOLKS a list of 69 names of individuals whom the co-authors had thought could help the F.U.C.K. get a party started, Donald J. Trump, who was 31st on their list, became President Trump—the F.U.C.K.head—the leader of the F.U.C.K., but within the Republican Party. Frank is beyond excited for President Trump and the possibility of seeing him toss the Two-Party Pirates overboard, as described in of FOLKS, or “drain the swamp,” as candidate Trump promised to do.
President Trump took office on January 20, 2017. But exactly how would the Two-Party Pirates be tossed? How would the swamp be drained? In those regards, Frank admits he was missing a set (of principles) when he co-wrote FOLKS in 2007—the pamphlet was merely an unprincipled populist rant very much like candidate Trump’s campaign. However, since the publication of FOLKS, Frank has discovered a set of principles that he is proud to have adopted as his own—a set of principles that, if adopted by President Trump, would be the philosophical basis upon which to toss the Two-Party Pirates overboard, drain the swamp, etc.
Frank is majorly excited to share his adopted principles with his fellow citizens; however, because he is inundated with myriad tasks, he had to leverage his self to accomplish the share. Hence, Frank requested that I develop this website to not only share those principles, but also introduce his fellow citizens to FOLKS UPSET BY THE CAPITAL KARMA: A Shock and Awe Campaign for Political Reform, by way of supplements to its content that appear here. (Special Note: The supplements are a work in progress.)
Before I began developing this website, I read FOLKS UPSET BY THE CAPITAL KARMA: A Shock and Awe Campaign for Political Reform to be sure I completely understood and appreciated Tricia and Frank’s seminal thoughts that would result in the birth of this site. (If you want a copy of the pamphlet for yourself or “a friend,” order one here or here so that you may not only join me in understanding and appreciating the co-authors’ seminal thoughts, but also experience a temporary release from the frustration you might be feeling at the hands of the present politicians in Washington, D.C.—a frustration the co-authors had felt at the hands of the “Current Capitalists” about whom they had written in FOLKS.) I admit I had a laugh or two while reading FOLKS, but then I became real worried about the future of the United States of America. Consequently, I decided that I had to engage in my own shock and awe campaign to capture your attention. I apologize if you are offended by my decision to continue using the f-bomb approach that Tricia and Frank used in FOLKS; however, I believe it is best to build upon the layout of FOLKS not only in remembrance of a comically cantankerous presidential campaign in 2016, but also in recognition of the fact that, no matter what the subject matter, “sex” sells it.
On a more serious note, and in full disclosure, I am working on the contents of this site while I am under the influence of Frank, who is not only under the influence of the words of Jean Racine, a French dramatist who said: “Life is a comedy to those who think, a tragedy to those who feel;” but also under the influence of the consciousness of Ayn Rand, a Russian-American novelist, philosopher, playwright, and screenwriter, who developed the philosophy to which Frank subscribes: Objectivism—the philosophy to which he was introduced by way of having read Ayn Rand’s magnum opus: Atlas Shrugged; after which he read more of her literary art, fiction and non-fiction. Objectivism is the structural paradigm housing the principles in accordance with which Frank lives and the principles upon which Frank firmly believes the United States of America was founded.
I am deriving great pleasure from my work-product, and I hope you will experience a similar level of pleasure as you examine the contents of this site. If you do, I respectfully request that you spread the word. If you do, you will increase the odds that President Trump, The FOLKS, and the remainder of We the People will become aware of, and begin dealing with, THE ISSUE. If President Trump can be convinced to lead We the People in making the transformation to philosophically correct, I believe the national debt can be eliminated within the two terms that candidate Trump said he could eliminate it, and We the People will be well on our way to living in liberty in hot pursuit of happiness ever after.
Thank you for visiting this website. I look forward to experiencing your consciousness through your comments on FOLKS UPSET BY THE CAPITAL KARMA: A Shock and Awe Campaign for Political Reform and the contents of this site; and remember: Be a F.U.C.K.E.R., not a F.U.C.K.U.P.!
