2021 – A New Hope
Middle Class America –The Glue
Do you remember impeachment? It was only 12 months ago. Seems like a different era. Seemed important. But only empty drama. Then came COVID. Shut down China flights? Or shop in Chinatown? Huge big deal? Or despicable diversion? Not enough of anything. No masks. No ventilators. No supplies. No clear idea what to do next. Fifteen days to “flatten the curve” turned into 30. Imperial Governors decreed that unprepared facilities must accept COVID positive patients. Resulting in the highest death rates worldwide (despite accounting shenanigans). Fear. Uncertainty. Dread.
Middle Class Americans responded. Setting aside personal interests, personal planning. Amazing. Suddenly manufacturing all sorts of Personal Protective Equipment. Filling the empty cupboard. Navy hospital ships ready in days, not months. Jump-starting ambitious vaccine programs. Ventilator manufacturer to the world!
Regular folks. Punching in for the overtime. Working round the clock. Making it happen. You did that. Despite political petulance. Preening celebrities and posturing politicians. Riots as peaceful protests. Organized destruction as a First Amendment right. Glib experts who insisted that vaccines would take years. Same ones who now take Warp Speed progress for granted.
Through it all, you came through. Shifting through conflicting orders. Sacrificing lifelong traditions. Accepting the isolation of our most vulnerable… our parents and grandparents. You are the glue of America. Common sense, hard work. Justified skepticism. You have brought us through the crisis, at great cost to yourself.
Rules Are For The Little People
Dr. Fauci drops his mask at a baseball game. Governor Cuomo and Dr. Birx gather their families for Thanksgiving. Speaker Pelosi and other politicians continue their “beauty” treatments. For political advantage, the House of Representatives stalls for months. No relief to destitute, hungry Americans. Political winds change. Now the deal, laden with pork, is done in less than a day. The Elder Plague COVID kills nursing home residents at 70 times the rate of younger people. Yet the vaccines go to people at minor risk. Why? Rules for thee but not for me. The hypocrisy piled up so fast in Hollywood and Washington, D.C., you needed wings to stay above it.
And yet. We are the deplorables, the bitter clingers, the little people. And yet. We make it all work. We keep plowing ahead. Undeceived by childish lies. Undaunted by the glaring failures of our “elites.” But the time has come to refocus. Thousands of families have lost an entire year of planning for their own lives.
You Saved The Country. Again.
Time To Save Yourself. Your Family.
Time and again you have answered the call. Yesterday Detroit churned out bombers, fighters, tanks, and trucks. Today it is ventilators, PPE, and vaccines. Today’s war. Today’s weapons.
In 2020, at Carrier Law, our crisis caseload skyrocketed. Special rules expanded PACE. Fewer people focused on planning ahead, LifePlanning™. Although our team has been busier than ever, 2020 has been a year of wasted opportunity for regular families. I am extremely concerned.
You can get the information you want. In-person workshops and one-on-one meetings. Recorded and live-streaming webinars. Like you, we have never stopped serving. As you seek out new ways to accomplish your life’s work, we are on the same journey. By your side. Making the rules work for the people who play by the rules.
Sixty minutes that to accelerate your success. An hour to put 2020 in the rear-view mirror. Avoid Nursing Home Poverty. Reject silly Spend Downs. Learn how to preserve your loved one’s lifesavings, business, cottage, life insurance. Thousands of middle-class families have learned and use these techniques. Why not yours?
