Well the republican congress actually accomplished something. I guess that's good. Are you excited about the tax cuts? I haven't had a chance to read the new law at all and I probably won't. I'll just wait and see what happens to my pay check. If it goes up I'll be happy. If it goes down I'm going to be pissed. So we'll see.
I love how many people have such strong opinions about it when all they know about it is whatever some talking head on TV has said about it. It's unbelievable to me what sheep people are. Not even considering the idea of actually checking and thinking for themselves.
By the way I've figured out how to win any political argument and the results are running pretty much 100%. I guess when people see how big I am maybe think I'm just big and dumb. And, you can debate that (laughing) and I've never professed to be the smartest guy in the room. But, I'll tell you 2 things. I remember things like an elephant and I don't miss much. So to take a position that I don't know what I'm talking about is probably a mistake. And, I'll be the first to tell I don't know everything about everything. Jen was asking me the other day about welfare. I don't really know much about. So I don't talk about it and I'm not going to argue about something I don't know anything about.
But, here's the way I've been winning arguments. And by winning arguments I mean winning hearts and minds. Changing people's way of thinking. Let me tell you that's a gift. A powerful gift I'm thankful for and take very seriously.
I do it by asking questions. So for example I was talking to a woman the other day and she said she didn't like the new tax plan. I said why not? She said because it's only good for the rich. And, I said how do you know that, have you read the law? She admitted she had not. I wasn't judging her, I wasn't telling her what was right and wrong. I was genuinely interested in what she had to say I just wanted to know the facts. The fact was she didn't have a clue what she was talking about. I didn't say that. She realized it. And guess what? It changed the whole conversation. In a good way.
Winning hearts and minds that's why I'm America's Culture King!
