Ramblings of a Conservative Cow Doctor by Krayton Kerns, DVM, State Rep. HD 58

Rule 13

After hopscotching between Montana and North Dakota, Meagan, my oldest, and her clan of miniKimmels put roots down in Great Falls. Finding a rental house for a large family is challenging, but prior to their move Tim scoured several Great Falls neighborhoods and scored a nice one within minutes of a “For Rent” sign appearing in one front yard. The house was in a new subdivision and it appears to have been built on a bed of clay because foundation cracks, heaves and sinks became common place over the years they lived there. Apparently, Tim had made off-hand remarks about being glad the settling problem was not his as it was a rental. His words popped up later when Mae, their sixyear-old, violated some family rule. Mom delivered an academy award winning lecture about integrity, family and honesty and she closed her riveting diatribe by asking Mae, “Now, why don’t we lie in this house?” Mae thought hard before seriously answering, “Because it’s a rental?” Meagan choked back a chuckle and tried to think of a different way to make her point. Some issues are too important to skim without being certain the lesson has been learned. This is especially true in politics because leftists utilize confusion and catchy sound-bites so voters never learn their hidden agenda. As such, I need to make another run at a point I made several months ago. If the dangerous Dark Money Initiative, I-168, makes the ballot and slips past unsuspecting voters, Montana will be controlled by progressive radicals for the rest of my life. Here is why.

For Sale: 3x3x8 bales of 1st & 2nd cutting alfalfa, Blue joint & straw for sale. Grain corn available. 406-785-2261 or 406-263-7022. 2-I:3-II

Business owners tend to be conservative and they voluntarily enter the political arena only after exhausting all possible excuses to not do so. Everything they own is placed at risk and they know they will receive relentless, unmerciful attacks the instant they express political beliefs contrary to progressivism. According to Rule 13 of Rules for Radicals, Saul Alinsky advises activists to pick a target, freeze it, personalize it and then polarize it; suggesting it is easier to attack and destroy people rather than institutions. The most recent example of Rule 13 in action is the ceaseless media attacks of Governor Chris Christie. The success of his destruction was evident in his swearing-in speech where his “working together” theme equated to the grade school rule of crying “uncle.” Now leftists will increase the attacks thereby rendering him a useless has been. Had Governor Christie owned a successful business prior to entering politics, his name, his brand and his business would be forever tainted because of Rule 13. Politics is a blood sport. Rule 13 is never used by conservatives to attack progressives for two reasons. First, leftists tend to not be entrepreneur business owners, so they place nothing at risk by being an extremist. Most are either spoiled trust funders protected by secure family fortunes, or community organizers being paid by non-profits to be activists. Second, conservatives, especially Christian conservatives, mold their lives after the Golden Rule rather than Rule 13. Rather than fight in the public spotlight with leftist extremists hell-bent on personally

destroying them, the successful prefer to remain in the shadows and fund groups advancing America’s founding principles. From personal experience, they know it is liberty, not subsidy, which affords the greatest opportunity for the poor and middle class to garner wealth; something they truly desire. This is good. Senate Bill 375, the Montana 2013 legislative version of the Dark Money Initiative, originated from Governor Bullock’s office and was introduced by a liberal Republican Senator. After a thorough hearing and examination it was tabled by the Senate Judiciary Committee, only to be forced back into consideration thanks to the 9 liberal Republican Senators voting with all the Senate Democrats. The House Judiciary Committee studied SB375 and tabled it as well. Fifteen liberal House Republicans joined with every House Democrat to blast the bill back to the floor. They fell five votes short. Do you see the pattern? The only thing preventing the left from garnering total control of your life is a handful of Christian, conservative, patriots in every state legislature and Washington DC. Many may or may not have been elected into office had it not been for a successful American businessman writing an check to a liberty group but choosing to do so anonymously so as to avoid the extremists attacks from Rule 13. The Dark Money Initiative is a brilliant, but intrinsically evil euphemism. If you value your freedom you must reject I-168.

ARE YOU THE WEAKEST LINK? Below are four (4) questions. You have to answer them instantly. You can't take your time, answer all of them immediately. OK, let's find out just how clever you really are. Ready? GO!!! (scroll down) First Question: You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. What position are you in? Answer: If you answer that you are first, then you are absolutely wrong! If you overtake the second person, you take his place, you are second!

RUDYARD

Try not to screw up in the next question. To answer the second question, don't take as much time as you took for the first question. Second Question: If you overtake the last person, then you are...? Answer: If you answered that you are second to last, then you are wrong again. Tell me, how is it possible to overtake the LAST person? You're not very good at this are you? Third Question: Very tricky math! Note: This must be done in your head only. Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator. Try it.

SACO

Take 1000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1000. Now add 30. Add another 1000. Now add 20. Now add another 1000. Now add 10. What's the total? Scroll down for answer. Did you get 5000? The correct answer is actually 4100. Don't believe it? Check with your calculator! Today is definitely not your day. Maybe you will get the last question right? Fourth Question: Mary's father has five daughters: 1. Nana, 2. Nene, 3. Nini, 4. Nono. What is the name of the fifth daughter? Answer: Nunu? NO! Of course not. Her name is Mary. Read the question again. If you got them all wrong, you ARE the WEAKEST LINK!!

DEAR DAVE, I’ve heard you say to never give collectors access to your checking account. Does that include payments with a debit card too? ~Susan Dear Susan, Absolutely! If you’re doing something like scheduling utility payments to come through your debit card or out of your personal checking account, that’s perfectly fine. But collectors are looking to get as much as they can on a bad, late debt. Never, under any circumstances, give them electronic access to your account. I’ve been doing financial counseling for a long time now, and I’ve seen numerous situations where collectors have taken more than the agreed-upon amount from someone’s account once they gained access. This sleazy move left people without the money to pay their rent, the electric bill or even groceries. In fairness, the collection business does have a few good people in it, but it also has a high percentage of people who are scum—especially on the credit card side of collections. Some of them will lie and even make threats. It’s a huge problem. There are other, much safer ways to handle these kinds of situations. Send a money order overnight or wire the cash to them. You can also send a cashier’s check. Some folks have even used a pre-paid debit card that isn’t attached to any of your accounts. This isn’t my favorite way to handle things, but it’s better than giving them the opportunity to clean you out and mess you over!. ~Dave DEAR DAVE, I’m a little worried about investing in the market due to volatility. Are there safer investments? ~Matt Dear Matt, You’re right; the market is volatile. It’s not a volatile as some things, but you have to remember that anywhere there’s money to be made—including long-term investing—there are ups and downs. For instance, I like real estate. It’s not as volatile as the stock market, but there are no guarantees. We experienced that big dip over the last few years, and it was probably one of largest dips ever in the real estate market, except for the Great Depression. Aside from real estate, I also like mutual funds. When it comes to these, one way to smooth out the volatility of the market is through diversification. That means you spread your money around instead of investing in one or two things. That’s how I handle my mutual funds, and I recommend others do the same. Spread your investments across these four types of mutual funds: growth, growth and income, aggressive growth and international. I can’t say it enough, Matt. There are no guarantees when it comes to long-term investing. But diversification can help make the ride a little bit smoother! ~Dave
