Hi, I wanted to share some of the recent comments and email and feedback I've received from people. I have one long one I'll start with, but what he says is well after going through a lot of information, he basically says, "I don't think people have it together well enough to be able to create a decent law." And my response to that is he's absolutely right. It takes a village to change a law. So the idea is you're not doing this alone, you're doing it with lots of other people in a crowd...

6 Things Politicians Want To Know

access politics Jun 27, 2018
 

Hi, here are the six things that politicians want to know, whether you are presenting something to them, either in writing or as an op-ed or as a call into a radio show or you're calling their office. There's basically six things that are going to come up. And the first one is what's your issue? So you have to have a clear idea of what specific issue you're focused on and what you want to get done. That's just completely essential. The second part or the second thing that they will want to...

Who Makes The Laws?

advocacy laws politics Jun 22, 2018
 

Who makes the laws? Well, politicians make the laws, lawmakers make the laws, they make them at the federal, state and local level, and that's generally how we think of it, but they don't do it really on their own. So they are informed by special interest groups, companies, trade associations, individuals who have a particular interest in getting something done, and that's what they do. Otherwise you might think that they just go to Congress and the state capitols and come up with ideas and...

Sometimes you try to get away, come to this sort of semi-large mountain cabin thinking that you'll be able to not think about work, get away how good time, get some skiing in, see how life goes, but you're, you're entrapped, you know, you can't stop the old mind from working 24 hours a day.

So you'll wake up with ideas, go to sleep with ideas. You wonder, you know, what you can do or...

Policy Platform

 

You know, I think some people think that policy is really tricky and difficult and I actually don't think it is.

I have been looking at this for a long time. I've mentioned in the past that I used to work in government affairs at MCA, which is the... was the parent to Universal Studios at the time, and worked in government affairs and we talked about and structured things working with lobbyists, politicians, senators, congressmen really, you know, everybody.

And it was Hollywood and...

Crowd Wisdom

crowdsource democracy Apr 29, 2018
 

One of the concepts we have is that we are very smart. We have answers to everything, but then we can't get it out, but in reality when you look at it, we're not as individuals, as smart as we are as a community.

Now people have said this in lots of different ways, but what it really amounts to is the resources we have from the past, the books, the knowledge, the information, all of that we can get from other people and that's the whole point of "We're not as smart as many of us."

Overwhelmed by Politics?

Uncategorized Apr 13, 2018
 

You know, sometimes what holds us back, I've been thinking about this, is it's really a fear. It's a fear of ignorance that we don't understand.

We don't have the knowledge. It's complex and I totally get it. I mean you and I and most people, we can't keep up with all the issues. If you read The Hill or the Washington Post, the New York Times or the Wall Street Journal or any of the major papers or Politico, you realize you're getting the blow-by-blow kind of Entertainment Tonight version of...

Hey, I know a lot of people do crazy things on videos and they do it because they want to get attention. It's funny; you get a lot of views. It's great, but I think that might not be my style.

I'm just not sure, but I do know that what I want to talk to you about a lot this month perhaps is the Policy Mindset Scorecard, which really has to do with the kind of person who has a particular mindset about change. It's...

We came up here to the mountain so that the kids could ski. So we live in San Francisco area, but, I came up here to Utah actually, it's Deer Valley so the kids can go skiing. You can go skiing anywhere, but what I've found is it's actually much less time to just fly up here from the bay area than it is to drive to Lake Tahoe.

Anyways, we wanted to give you this opportunity if you have an...

One of the burning issues I have is this issue that we all have something we want to express. Yet we find it so difficult to get to the point where our emotions really come together with our intellect for us to move forward on an issue.

And I would say in the past week I have had more people come to me talking about gun violence and what has and hasn't happened. I personally, 10 years ago had...
