What if Change Seekers Truly United?

As a non-political American the elections of the different political parties are usually observed with a distant vague curiosity; much like a Superbowl without my beloved Dallas Cowboys, although watchable, I don’t Really care who wins.

The above analogy is significant only in the sense that political elections are a competition (albeit a popularity contest). As though we return to High school every  4 years and choose “Most Popular”, or “Most Likely To Succeed”.

As someone whom understands team competition, you would know that to succeed, you must know who your Real Players are, and how to Motivate them to Unite.

President Donald Trump get’s it, he knows who his Real Players are, what is important to them, and how to motivate them to unite and win. Many of those Real Players are remaining silent, and shall only “speak” in the November elections.

President Trump knows all to well that in today’s world of #anti-bullying ,#metoo, #blacklivesmatter, #LGBT, #anti-gun, #anti-religion, etc.etc.. that many Americans no-longer feel free to even practice the 1st Amendment: Freedom of Speech, from fear of being labeled one of the many negative (and dismissive) terms that shall be immediately attached to them, if they were to dare speak their mind. So they remain silent.

But their silence is being confused with their defeat, and there in lies the rub.

The Covid-19 virus is real, and most do not dispute this. Although more than capable of delving into the intricate details of this virus, I shall only mention the obvious.

This is a virus, as is the common flu. The common flu claims 200-600,000 lives World Wide yearly. This covid-19 was identified as early as October/November 2019… Therefore simple arithmetic deduces that the covid-19 mortality rate is more or less the same as the common flu. Thus many believe that simply isolating and protecting the vulnerable (i.e. the elderly and those with per-existing medical conditions) would be more logical. Rather than shutting down the Nations’ economy and promoting mass hysteria , and as a result putting 10’s of million’s of American lives in peril. As the nation’s unemployment rate continues to climb (already over 20%) and 40 MILLION without work.

This virus, more than Anything exposes how MILLIONS of citizens in the USA have inadequate heath care, thus are more likely to be walking around with undetected per-existing medical conditions. Unlike our neighbors above and below (Canada and Mexico), the USA is one of the ONLY industrialized countries in the entire world, that does not provide it’s Citizens with universal health care. You read correctly, even in Mexico they provide universal health care to all of their citizens.

The virus exposes this, yet the clearly bias mass media portrays this as some “Boogieman” virus problem that President Trump is some how mishandling, Rather than call for change of the Real problem; a need for universal heath care for All American Citizens. This Is a problem that no political party has ever fully addressed. This need is so profound that Universal Heath care for All American citizens should be added as an amendment to our very constitution.

THE 28th AMENDMENT: All USA citizens shall be provided with universal healthcare from birth till death. 


And the fact that we can derive trillions of dollars for bailouts within days should put to rest for everyone the argument that this would be too expensive. This, together with regulating the astronomical health care cost, must be done.

True Unity=True Empowerment (TU=TE²)

President Trump knows this, and immediately made sure his Real Players understood that he did not want to impose Lockdowns.

Americans Love underdogs, because the very existence of the country is perhaps the greatest underdog story in the history of the world. This is a country were Every Citizen in All 50 states can Carry A Concealed Weapon (a Gun).. which means any day they leave their homes they could be shot dead. Understanding this, may help a non-American understand that a virus of Any kind is not something that the average American will honestly feel a need to lock themselves in their homes for.

President Trump understands this, and his opponents obviously do not. And the more the mass media in the USA (CNN, and ABC  in particular) continue to berate and poke fun at his “incompetence” , all the while ignoring the Irony of everyone telling them to “Stay Home”, are doing so from Their Jobs.

This fact does nothing more than serve as a uniting call for all of the Silent Army, an army that will scream loud in the November 2020 elections and re-elect Donald J. Trump as President of the United States of America.


Brexit Is As Logical As Breathing

You are at home, the entire family, perhaps enjoying a television program. Then someone walks into your home (you are Not Allowed to have locks on your doors), grabs the remote control and changes the channel, and before you can say WTF!, they inform you that someone in France, Belgium or Finland has decided they have the right to do so.

This is somewhat like how it feels to be in the EU, as described to me by some  UK citizens (in private, for fear of being labeled a racists if expressing their feelings publicly) while I recently visited there for an extended amount of time. It was my second extended visited, this time it was the Northeast near Newcastle, previously it was the Midlands near Nottingham. I would advise anyone to visit either location to experience the Real UK. I enjoyed my stay both times immensely.

The UK is truly an awesome country and culture, this is a place were the majority of all police officers Do Not Carry Guns,  can you be more civilized  than that in today’s world?
Why does everyone seem to be under the impression that the majority of UK citizens are “confused” because they would prefer to be an independent country, free to govern, police, and decide whom has a right to work and live within it’s own borders?

This perplexes me.

Also the notion that United Kingdom will somehow collapse into some apocalyptic catastrophe, just because it leaves the EU is other nonsense!

This “logic” reminds me of the comedian Andy Woodhull description of how his  wife beats him at arguments; “she just denies she is doing the thing that I was mad about ”

It would seem that the majority of UK citizens whom wish the leave the EU shall Never be allowed. They are in-effect being treated like little children. They gave an honest answer, and now the “adults” (paid politicians), will convince them that they were to ignorant to understand the question.

They want to force Another vote, feeling confident that after almost 3 years of unnecessary political delay tactics that they have successfully emotionally terrorized enough UK citizens to now “win” a second referendum.

After a recent extended visit to Switzerland, I am convinced now more than ever that living without being a member of the EU is more than possible, it is Logical. There people of many different heritages co-existed in harmony, with All respecting and assimilating within the Swiss culture. I seriously doubt that this would be achieved it forced upon the citizens

Hopefully the citizens of the UK will be allowed to leave the EU, as the Majority of them expressed their desire to do so with their democratic rights. By holding on to their own currency, they have always expressed a desire to remain independent. With it’s greatest ally being the USA, I have no doubt that their future shall be as Great as their past. Paid Politicians’ true influence over the citizen’s lives should have a limit, and That Limit Being Defined Is The True Meaning Of Brexit.

Q: What made you consider coaching in Egypt?

A: As an African American the opportunity to return to the land of my ancestors and share my life’s passion was something I could not miss.

Q: What was your first impression of the MSA University Tigers squad?

A: Enthusiastic! 30 or more greeted my airplane in Cairo last December at 1:AM! This was impressive and humbling. 

Q: How did the team respond to your unorthodox coaching style?

A: Great Question. Their response was the key to our success… They Trusted Me, gave me the respect and dedication I needed to teach my “True Unity=True Empowerment” philosophy, and way of playing. By mid-season we simply referred to it as “TIGER BALL” 

Q: What do you think of the level of football present in Egypt and how does it compare to other countries?

A: The level of football is at the German GFL 3 level, with several players having GFL 1 talent

Q: How do you describe the maturation of the Tigers and where do you see them in the future?

A: We were a dropped pass in the endzone away from the Egyptian Bowl, and I would throw the ball to that receiver again because he will catch it 9 of 10 times. Thus next year’s goal can only be one thing… to FINISH!

Q: What does the Coach of the year award represent to you?

A: We all wish to be considered the best at our profession, no matter what your profession is. This Coach of The Year Award (considering all the nominees had German GFL coaching experience) is a prestigious award that represents the ultimate team award, as the teams improvement is a vital measuring stick.

Coach Mike Sholars Believes American Football Should Only Be Played Spring Til Autumn.


I get it.

Back in the 1800s when what we now know as American football (or simply football to Americans), was played primarily by university students, starting the seasons in September was a logical choice. Particularly  when seasons were 6-7 games long at that time.

But now let us fast forward to the present 21st century, where the sport of American football is now a worldwide phenomena. Now you can see local teams compete for National Championships form Toronto to Tel Aviv, from Los Angeles to Lagos, from Boston to Beijing, China from New York to Newcastle upon Tyne, England from Seattle to Stockholm, Sweden from Houston to Hamburg, Germany from Cincinnati  to Cairo, Egypt from Pittsburg to Prague, Czech Republic and I could go on and on and on…  

Now as a former European pro player and current coach in over 10 countries in Europe, Asia, and Africa I quickly noticed a big difference in the season scheduling outside of North America.  The leagues here begin there seasons in spring, and end in summer or the very first weeks of autumn. This is a very logical choice, as not only is it better for players (If the weather is to hot, you always have a night game option), but it attracts more fans if you are trying to expand your fan base.  

Playing and coaching in the freezing snow, or supporting your team in the freezing snow has always been romanticize, but as a former pro player and head coach in counties like Norway, Denmark, and Sweden (places where even with the season beginning in spring, you do not always escape the snow), it is not as romantic as portrayed Brrr. 

What about school summer break? 

I would prepose that in the USA (where University football is a Muti Billion dollar business) we treat all high school and university players like any other kids their age with a summer job: If they play for the schools while classes are not in session, they should receive a monetary compensation just like any of their classmates would if they worked during the summer break. And this should not effect their amateur status. 

Incidentally this schedule would also allow incoming university freshmen an entire half year to assimilate into university life, which should make for a better educational experience for both university and High school players alike. 

  • The season could have a two week pause in July for family vacation

And of course with a more enjoyable environment to view the games the fan base will expand even further … and trust me,  the interest is here.
