Warren Redlich on YouTube

Life moves fast. Recently I have become very engaged on my Warren Redlich channel on YouTube.

This is now my full time activity. I make videos about new technology for a global audience (mostly in English speaking countries). The videos tend to focus on Elon Musk companies including Tesla, SpaceX, The Boring Company and Neuralink.

So if you want to see the latest about Warren Redlich, please check out the YouTube channel linked in the first sentence.

Warren Redlich is still interested in the Stop Wasting Money theme in politics, but is currently focused on real estate in Boca Raton Florida and a variety of other things in his life.

One of Warren’s big current projects is West Boca News, the leading media outlet for West Boca Raton.

Life is good in West Boca.

Ideology?

Apparently a growing celebrity in the world, this young man (video below) talks about how his generation is not “post-ideological”.

Strangely absent from his speech is the content of his ideology. As best I can tell, they are upset about Britain’s proposed cuts to subsidized education. While education is not the first place I’d cut, fighting for your share of the pie is not terribly thoughtful or ideological. I’d be more impressed if he’d explain where the cuts should fall, or if no cuts, where the money should come from. If only young people would protest all the borrowing our government does that will be paid for out of their own pockets later.

For Governor

Yes, it’s true. Yesterday I announced that I’m in for a big race. Read more at Warren Redlich for Governor.

Governor?

Friends in the Republican and Libertarian parties have asked me to run for Governor. I’m thinking about it, and would love to hear comments, both for and against.

Please see the Facebook group: Warren Redlich for Governor

A couple of the agitators are:
Eric Sundwall
and
Jim Ostrowski

I’m honored to be considered, and look forward to hearing from others. I do have some ideas about how our state government can … you might guess the campaign theme … Stop Wasting Money.

We can make substantial spending cuts in areas that do little for our state. By doing so we can protect the jobs that matter and reduce taxes for the rest of us.

December 16th Tea Party for Rand Paul

For all who want our governments to stop wasting our money, and all who are supportive of the Tea Party movements, the candidate to watch is Rand Paul.

There is a big money bomb event for the younger Dr. Paul – Rand’s Tea Party, set for December 16th. Please help the cause.

Rand Paul is the candidate to watch in 2010. The leadership of the GOP has fallen into the same fiscal irresponsibility that used to be a hallmark of the Democrats. Together, the heads of both parties are taking us in a downward spiral, making me remember fondly the Bill Clinton years.

If Rand Paul wins in 2010, it sends a strong message to the establishment that the natives are not merely restless. It will show we can also elect candidates who share our views.

Go Rand!

Federal Health Care?

A friend of mine sent me an e-mail that included this picture. There was an explanation in the message, but the picture says more.

For my thoughts about federal health care, see my posts on this blog labeled Universal Health Care.

The New Money Bomb?

Trevor Lyman has a new website, and it looks interesting. If you’re a fan of Stop Wasting Money, Ron Paul, or the tea party movement, this site is worth checking out:

Guilderland Election Results

The Guilderland election results for 2009 are in. Short story: For the next two years at least, Guilderland belongs to Ken Runion.

Details and some thoughts below:

For Supervisor:
Kenneth D Runion Jr 4,647
Peter A Golden 3,629

For the math-challenged, Runion won by over 1000 votes. That’s a big win.

For Town Board:

Paul C Pastore 4,665
Patricia J Slavick 4,605
Matthew D Nelligan 3,571
David B Fraterrigo 3,165

Back in 2007, these were the vote totals for Town Board (the only contested race):

Mark E Grimm 4,187
Warren Redlich 3,961
David A Bosworth Jr 3,730
Michael F Ricard 3,723

The most obvious detail is that the Dems won in 2009 by a far larger margin than we did in 2007. Another note is that turnout seems slightly higher this year, and that’s before absentee ballots are counted. The 2007 numbers probably include them.

Of course I’m disappointed. I’m also surprised. Our candidates worked hard. They spent a lot of money too – maybe three times as much as we spent. It seemed that Runion was particularly weak – with incidents like the Ghost of Altamont bringing him lower. His policy decision to raise his own pay while cutting paramedics seemed odd in an election year.

Political types can quibble about what the result means, or about what our team did wrong. That might be a worthwhile discussion if it was a close race. But it wasn’t. To me, Guilderland voters sent a clear message. They want Ken Runion to run Guilderland. I will be quieter for the next two years.

Bullying … and yes … Warren Redlich

Okay, this one isn’t really about me. But I’m in it.

Fox 23 News did a “focus” on bullying. Good story on a common problem faced by kids, how it’s changed over the last several years, and some things you can do about it. If you don’t see a video above, here’s a link to it on their site:
Fox 23 News: Bullying

Of course bullying is much more complex than what can be covered in a 3-minute news bit. It’s not just about your kid being bullied. We as parents also need to deal with the possibility that our child might be the bully.

A good resource is:

AACAP on Bullying

Also, on girls and aggression, I read a great book recently:
Odd Girl Out: The Hidden Culture of Aggression in Girls

and I’m reading:
Queen Bees and Wannabes

Well, actually I’m reading the 2002 edition and the above is the brand new 2009 edition. But I’m sure both are good.
