Why read Monday Morning Power?

You will find a consistency and a focus in all of my content that can change your attitude which can fuel a positive change in your life, if you want it to. If you are happy with your attitude and your life and see no reason for changing, then you either already have a PMA (Positive Mental Attitude), or you are a victim and want to hold onto your misery. These postings will then serve to fortify the person with PMA, or, hopefully, convince the "victim" that there is a better way. This site will contain essays, poems, stories, humor and links, all with the same goal: The pursuit, capture, care and feeding of a Positive Mental Attitude. I have had readers tell me that they have spent hours on my site and feel great about themselves both during and after. I log onto my own site frequently to help fuel my attitude; I hope you will as well.

Bail Out?????

I recieved this in my email and had to share it with everyone.  After reading this, then apply the concept to the $700 Billion  bail-out now being considered for the financial sector.


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 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 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 I do the geniuses at AIG or in Washington DC 

And remember, this plan only really costs $59.5 Billion because $25.5 Billion is returned instantly in taxes to Uncle Sam.

NOW APPLY THIS TO THE $700 BILLION BAIL-OUT NOW BEING CONSIDERED.

Holly Gator.......

This picture was taken by a KTBS helicopter flying over Lake Wiess about 90 miles north of Birmingham, Alabama !

The helicopter pilot and the game warden were in communication via radio's here is a transcript of their conversation.

'Air1 have you a visual on the gator, over'

'Approaching inlet now, over'

'Roger Air1'

'Gator sighted…. Looks like it has a small animal in its mouth.. moving in, over'

'Roger Air1'

'Holy Crap it's a Deer!'

'confirm Air1.. did you say Deer?, Over'

'Roger.. a Deer in its mouth.. looks like a full sized buck.. that's a big gator, were gonna need more men, Over'

'Roger Air1..can you give me a idea on size of animal, over'

'Its big 25 feet at least, please advise Gator is heading to inlet.. do I pursue?, over'



That has to be a HUGE gator to have a whole deer in its mouth! 

The deer was later found to be a mature Stag and was measured at 11 feet! 

Are you ready to go skiing on Lake Wiess?! 

If you ski at the west end of the lake -- try not to fall. 



This alligator was found between Centre and Leesburg , Alabama near a house! Game wardens were forced to shoot the alligator- guess he wouldn't cooperate... 

Anita and Charlie Rogers could hear the bellowing in the night. Their neighbors had been telling them that they had seen a mammoth alligator in the waterway that runs behind their house, but they dismissed the stories as exaggerations. 

'I didn't believe it,' Charles Rogers said, but they realized the stories were, if anything, understated. 

Alabama Parks and Wildlife game wardens had to shoot the beast. Joe Goff, 6'5' tall, a game warden, walks past the 28-foot, 1-inch alligator he shot and killed in their back yard.

Are You Prepared For Success? (Section III - Installment #16 "It’s All In My State of Mind” – Male & Female versions)


(If this is your first time on this site, you may want to begin with "Are You Prepared For Success?" [Introduction])

If you are a regular reader of my Empowerment Process please read the Section II version of this poem first (male version, female version); then read this version.  

Winning...What Is It?

It's All In My State Of Mind

If I think I am beaten, I am.
If I think I dare not, I won't.
If I'd like to win, but think I can't,
It's almost certain I don't.
If I think I'll lose, I've lost.
For out in the world I'll find
Success begins with my own will-
It's all in my state of mind.

Full many a race is lost
Ere even a step is run,
And many a coward falls
Ere even their work's begun.
I'll think big, so my deeds will grow;
If I think small, I'll fall behind;
I'll think I can, so I know I will-
For it's all in my state of mind.

If I think I'm out-classed, I am;
I will think high, so I will rise;
I will be sure of myself
So I can win the prize.
Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster than;
But sooner or later, I'm going to win
And it's because I know I can.

(Based on a poem of unknown authorship)


I strongly suggest that you write down your immediate reaction, after passionately reading this poem.
  • Your mind is a powerful tool and thoughts can influence actions.  What will you convince yourself of?
Stay Tuned.......

Funny Summer Olympics Comments


These are comments made by NBC sports commentators during the Summer Olympics, that I'm pretty sure they would like to retract:

  1. Weightlifting commentator: 'This is Gregoriava from Bulgaria . I saw her snatch this morning during her warm up and it was amazing.'
  2. Dressage commentator: 'This is really a lovely horse and I speak from personal experience since I once mounted her mother.'
  3. Paul Hamm, Gymnast: 'I owe a lot to my parents, especially my mother and father.'
  4. Boxing Analyst: 'Sure there have been injuries, and even some deaths in boxing, but none of them really that serious.'
  5. Softball announcer: 'If history repeats itself, I should think we can expect the same thing again.'
  6. Basketball analyst: 'He dribbles a lot and the opposition doesn't like it. In fact you can see it all over their faces.'
  7. At the rowing medal ceremony: 'Ah, isn't that nice, the wife of the IOC president is hugging the cox of the British crew.'
  8. Soccer commentator: 'Julian Dicks is everywhere. It's like they've got eleven Dicks on the field.'
  9. Tennis commentator: 'One of the reasons Andy is playing so well is that, before the final round, his wife takes out his balls and kisses them... Oh my God, what have I just said?'

My New Project

As you may have discovered on my Apologies post, I have been trying to put a new project together and had become quite frustrated. Well this project, while still not complete, seems to be going in the right direction thanks to the assistance of an amazing benefactor, who a lot of you may know as Mister Linky.

When completed I will be looking for launch partners, so if anyone is interested please leave me your email address or just email me directly at info@mondaymorningpower.com. I currently have 15 committed launch partners and am looking for 50-100.

When the project is complete I will divulge the details.
