DIRECTIONS to November 1, 2008 Grand Opening

In just another week we will be celebrating our grand opening. I want to share with you some background on our speakers and guests and provide directions and other information to keep you abreast.

The directions to:

Southwest Veterans' Business Resource Center
145 E. Fig Street,
Fallbrook, CA 92028

Can be seen by clicking here.

No organization is complete without establishing clear direction. Click here to learn ours.

Every journey we take needs a compass or a road map. Click here to view the road map we are presenting to all learners.

On November 1, 2008 we will enjoy meeting new communities and learn more of who they are. In my own travels I have met with many and I reached out to them to join us and to speak at our event. I would like to share how I know all of our speakers.

The local Boy Scouts Troop #755 leader is Mike Zatlin and we have yet to meet, but through our volunteer Bonnie, we connected and welcome his support. I look forward to meeting Mike. I connected with Pastor Jerry Rillings as a result of connecting with Bonnie and the Pastor and I met soon after.

I learned the Pastor is also a veteran and we are honored to have him bless our grand opening.

We are honored to have County Supervisor Bill Horn personally present his Proclamation to SWVBRC. We have never met, but I have met his Communication Director, John Culea at various events I attended. If you haven't visited Supervisor Horn's website, please do. You will be impressed by his service to the County and his commitment to communities.

Our Refuse to Fail theme is highlighted with a very special civilian, the CBS Survivor contestant, Gillian Larson I connected with Gillian many years ago, but until recently I met her at her premier viewing of the TV series Survivor. She has an amazing journey to share with us and emulates the essence of Refuse to Fail. Do click here to learn more about her journey.

When I attended the American Legion National Convention last year at Reno, NV, I had the honor of meeting Coreena Conley, Program Director of Veteran Business Outreach Center Sacramento, CA. Coreena is a civilian and never served with the military, but she demonstrates the energy of so many and has touched the lives of many veterans. It is the commitment of civilians like Coreena that has inspired me to do what I do. I was influenced by her on how best to create this organization. Thank you, Coreena.

Our very first Veteran is Sam Luna-Sanchez, a Fallbrook Resident. Sam responded to The Village News article and we met. We have stepped through the first hour of our orientation and on the 1st, Sam will share his intent to Refuse to Fail and sign the Learners Articles of Agreement. We are honored to serve this Veteran and begin a service that many more Veterans will enjoy.

Our other Veteran Speaker, Bob Mulz, Chairman, ELITE SDVOB, is someone I met this year at the National Veterans Convention in Las Vegas, NV. His organization is a network of Veteran business owners and it gives me honor to have Bob share all that they are doing for Veteran business owners.

During February, 2007, the House Chairman of Veterans Affairs, Congressman Bob Filner gave a challenge to all congressmen to meet with at least 200 veterans. I called his office to meet with him. On February 23, 2007, at 4:40pm, I had the honor of meeting Congressman Bob Filner. I remember our discussion well, with his first words being "what's the problem". That resonated well with me. I welcome the Honorable Congressman to dedicate this center and open our doors to all.

The dedication of the Center will be to Guest of Honor LCdr Carol A. Grice, NC USN Retired. I have known Carol for some time and her lineage is amazing. Bonnie Zepada, someone I haven't met yet, nor does she know Carol, has done so much in connecting us with so many others. Bonnie is going to be part of our dedication and I can't wait to meet her.

If you haven't figured it out yet, my own network stems across all 50 states and several countries. Someday I will meet everyone I know from a distance. The communities joining us on the 1st are from across the state and together we will celebrate our grand opening. I am hoping Linda Sanders joins us from Whittier CA.

You will be amazed at what she and her group have done to get the center ready. You can still contact Frances Lowe – email: or call 760 468-1315 to share your thoughts or pass this on to others to be part of what we do. Whether you are near or far, we are all connected with a click or two.

I am anxious and excited to open our doors and with your presence near or far, together we will eradicate the notion that any Veteran can become homeless. Many Blessings, Al

Packages are shipped five times each year: early January, mid-March, early June, mid-August and late October.
To request a care package for your Marine, go to
This is a service from

Howard Stern on Obama

You have got to listen to this, it’s unbelievable!
This is a sound byte (Quicktime) from the Howard Stern
show. His man on the street went up to Harlem to
ascertain if African Americans up there were voting for Obama
for his policy or his race. What the guy does is ask who
they are voting for and then when they say Obama, he asks about
policy. However, the guy changes out Obama's policies
for McCain's policies. See what they have to say about
Obama's running mate!

Today I heard a GySgt say " Fuck John McCain ! Just because he was a POW that shouldn't automatically give him the right or qualify him to be president of the United States. "

The sad thing is the GySgt is a recuiter for the Marines here a post by my house in Downey. I was just at a lost for words .... I sat there is shock trying to take in what he was saying.

Than he called me a racist because I was just making a joke .... I said " You know is Obama wins .... some one is going to kill'em ! " He said " That's just good old boy backwards white trash KKK thinking. "

I was just shocked, a little amazed and to be honest pissed off.

Happy 233rd Birthday Marines!

Our next scheduled packing date for The Care Package Project™ is November 1, 2008.

We've got a great linup planned with the Marine Corps Birthday boxes to ship to our Marines in Iraq and Afghanistan this year, and we need your help with two things.

First of all, we need a "Happy Birthday" card for every box that we ship. That's 1000 cards we need from YOU, our Marine Corps families. We must receive them in our office by October 28 to be included in the care packages we'll ship on November 1. Please allow plenty of time for the cards to arrive to us at the following address:, Inc.
Attn: Happy Birthday Marine
PO Box 1115
Columbia, MO

The cards should be addressed to "Dear Marine" and include a personal, handwritten sentiment. If you will be sending several cards, you may put them in one large envelope to mail to us. Please do not seal the individual envelopes.

To order unique Marine Corps birthday cards from our Cafe Press online store, visit All proceeds go back to, Inc.

Secondly, we need to raise $6000 to purchase content for the "Birthday Boxes". We will be including an olive green t-shirt, a Hormel Turkey Dinner (for Thanksgiving), and a birthday cake kit for each box. The cost will be approximately $6 per box. This cost is in addition to the funds we've already raised for shipping costs of $9850. Please help us meet our $6000 goal by November 1 for the Marine Corps Birthday Boxes!

Pimpin' Freedom Ain't Easy!


The debates are funny ........ for a few reasons mostly because the candidates are full of crap. The candidates do 1 - 2 things .... the say 10% of what the voters they are trying to get want to hear. They say another 10% of what they think YOU really want to hear, so the can secure your vote. Than they say another 10% of whatever is they want to say, to make them self sound like they know what is the right things to say. They'll stumble around for answers to question people emailed in or are asking in the audience. The best part of the whole night is they will spend 50%-60% of the night trading jabs with each other.

It really doesn't matter who wins ..... for one small reason, in 4 years neither one McCain or Obama are going to be able to change much of anything. They may level the field or they could make things worse ..... nor worse than things are already, but who knows.

The best thing of the debate last night was something Obama said. He spoke about AIG, how the federal government gave them $ 86 Billion to bail out their company. What did AIG's CEO's do right after they got bailout ? They went to Dana Point spent over $444,000.00. Obama said " AIG should have to pay back the federal government the money $ 86 Billion and they CEO's should be fired ! " I about fell off the cough laughing ....... You know as well as I know that is not going to happen, so why making a stupid comment like that.

The Lawmakers for House Committee on Oversight & Government Reform can in invest agate who ever they like. All they are doing is just spending money of the tax payers money searching for answers they already know. It's not like they are really going to do anything to these companies ...... If they stepped in & took control of the companies, took control of their money & kicked the old CEO's out.

We Deserve It Dividend

Hi Pals,

I'm against the $85,000,000,000.00 bailout of AIG.

Instead, I'm in favor of giving $85,000,000,000 to America in a W D I D.
( We Deserve It Dividend. )

To make the math simple, let's assume there are 200,000,000 bonafide U.S. Citizens 18+.

Our population is about 301,000,000 +/- counting every man, woman and child.So 200,000,000 might be a fair stab at adults 18 and up..

So divide 200 million adults 18+ into $85 billion that equals $425,000.00.

My plan is to give $425,000 to every person 18+ as a We Deserve It Dividend.
Of course, it would NOT be tax free.

So let's assume a tax rate of 30%.

Every individual 18+ has to pay $127,500.00 in taxes.

That sends $25,500,000,000 right back to Uncle Sam.

But it means that every adult 18+ has $297,500.00 in their pocket.

A husband and wife team has $595,000.00.

What would you do with $297,500.00 to $595,000.00 in your family?

Pay off your mortgage - housing crisis solved.

Repay college loans - what a great boost to new grads Put away money for college - it'll be there Save in a bank - create money to loan to entrepreneurs.

Buy a new car - create jobs Invest in the market - capital drives growth Pay for your parent's medical insurance - health care improves Enable Deadbeat Dads to come clean - or else Remember this is for every adult U S Citizen 18+ including the folks who lost their jobs at Lehman Brothers and every other company that is cutting back. And, of course, for those serving in our Armed Forces.

If we're going to re-distribute wealth let's really do it...instead of trickling out a puny $1000.00 ("vote buy") economic incentive that is being proposed by one of our candidates for President.

If we're going to do an $85 billion bailout, let's bail out every adult U S Citizen 18+!

As for AIG - liquidate it.

Sell off its parts.

Let American General go back to being American General.

Sell off the real estate.

Let the private sector bargain hunters cut it up and clean it up.

Here's my rationale We deserve it and AIG doesn't.

Sure it's a crazy idea that can "never work."

But can you imagine the Coast-To-Coast Block Party!

How do you spell Economic Boom?

I trust my fellow adult Americans to know how to use the $85 Billion We Deserve It Dividend more than do the geniuses at AIG or in Washington DC.
And remember, The Birk plan only really costs $59.5 Billion because $25.5 Billion is returned instantly in taxes to Uncle Sam.

Ahhh...I feel so much better getting that off my chest.

Kindest personal regards, Birk

T. J. Birkenmeier, A Creative Guy & Citizen of the Republic

PS: Feel free to pass this along to your pals as it's either good for a laugh or a tear or a very sobering thought on how to best use $85 Billion!!
