Football and Politics

RTC,MP,JohnWadeandGeorgeWhite,20Sep.2015I attended the New Orleans Saint’s game Sunday, a heartbreaker loss (we’re now 0-2) against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. I then proceeded to spend a brief period at the Round Table Club where I briefly spoke with George White (pictured here), a long-time Republican power and friend.

I will have to receive special permission to use the review because I did not try to paraphrase; I’m just trying to pull out the important parts and give my comments and analysis.RTC,BookClub,21Sep.2015

Brief Talk to Uptown Women’s Republicans

I’m excited to announce that on Friday, September 18, 2015 I will speak to the Uptown Republican Women about my memoir, “The Bipolar Millionaire”. The speech will cover the three elements of the title of the book, seeking to inform those attending about bipolar disorder in particular.

How I became a multimillionaire will also be revealed. The Operation—the name I gave to describe the forces of transactional analysis surrounding me since 1998—will also be addressed.

Following my address there will be a brief question and answer session.

Falling in Love in a Mature Way

I am 69 and have been single since 1998. I now have a “girl” friend and we are falling in love on a mutual basis.

I have been seeking a wife ever since my last marriage which was my second one—17 years ago. Her name is Nancy, and she’s cute, petite, a nurse, intelligent, educated and—most of all—kind. I believe we have mutual respect, admiration and enjoy each other’s companionship.

Our communication seems good and yet it also appears that she changes plans beyond what I am used to doing; I’ve lived alone for 17 years and am used to doing optional things when I want to do them.

This business of her being kind and in a noble profession is just what I have searched for so long. I remember when asked what I wanted in a potential life partner in the very beginning my answer was “kindness.”

Our friendship looks like it is headed in the right direction. We seem to fit in a comfortable and congenial manner. Mature love is more than emotion and sex. It has a lot to do with the wisdom-associated values of empathy, truth, honesty, justice, cooperation, peace, compassion, universal well-being, creativity and general knowledge. Shunning the negative values of selfishness, greed, envy, hate and revenge are also necessary for a sound foundation.

I’ve met many couples that have been married for over 50 years and a lot of them told me that you “had to work at it.” I think that’s true of courtship too. I look forward to this delightful process.

The Operation as Described in “The Bipolar Millionaire”

The Operation—as named by me—goes back to late 1998, probably when Dr. Alvin Cohen took over the management of my medication and made significant changes.

It is comparable in terms of its long duration to when the federal government conducted a secret program (1932-1972) at Tuskegee Institute. In that infamous “study” 399 poor African-Americans with syphilis died when they were intentionally not given penicillin –a cure which was available. To me that establishes the fact that the federal government can carry on secret programs for long periods of time.

A long duration occurred for both of these experiments—17 years for the Operation and 40 secret years in that previous “experiment.” The Operation has had positive goals rather than the total immorality of the Tuskegee experiment. It sought to cure my bipolar disorder, guide me spiritually and make me a force in the Republican Party.

To a great degree it has accomplished the above stated goals although, at times, the end seemed to justify the means. And I have used approximately half of my inheritances in endeavors—some willingly philanthropic– which have yet to bear financial fruit.

When I was in a mental hospital in June, 1999, I was asked for three wishes. I wished for my health, a third loving wife and a family for my daughter. Two of those wishes have been granted, my health and a joyous family with my daughter, son-in-law and two children. I am now in love with a wonderful nurse who seems to embody the quality I have been seeking since the beginning—kindness.

Does the end justify the means? It all depends.

Who directs the Operation? To be honest, I do not know. But I do know it’s very big and highly secretive, and, the type of research it is doing may be considered more important than my books or financial position.

During World War II the allies sacrificed ships to the Germans in order to keep the secret that they had cracked the German code. Is there something so important that the veracity of my book is being sacrificed? Things like bio-mimicry and artificial intelligence are being pursued with great haste for good or bad. Perhaps that research is the reason that my book isn’t being validated?

Another potential reason is that the Operation wants to continue to use the signs it used for me for other such programs.

I hope and pray that the Operation will “come clean” and validate “The Bipolar Millionaire”.
