Years ago I also produced and hosted a program called "Daily Male" that focused upon helping young people grow up into strong adults. This is an interview conducted with my Father.
What If They Threw a Quarantine… And No One Came? by Ben Buehler-Garcia and Scott Faith First they came for restaurants and bars, and I said nothing because I was not a waiter. Then they came for the churches and I said nothing because I am agnostic When they arrested the surfers I did not speak out because I don’t live near the ocean Then they came for my tenured professor’s salary and there was no one left to speak for me -modified from a poem by Martin Niemöller What I am about to share with you is in no [...]
WEAPONIZING THE INFLUENCERS What if I told you I could hamstring the world’s top super power without firing a single shot in anger? We may be seeing the blueprint for just such an action playing out at this moment.

Imagine if I told you that I would pledge to protect you and your family for 20-30 years. That I would work weekends, holidays and all hours of the day or night. I would miss birthdays, anniversaries and kids’ soccer games so you could enjoy those special times with your family. If you needed something, just make one phone call and I would be there. If there was ever danger or a threat, I would run TOWARD the danger so that you could retreat safely. And, if..God forbid…a situation called for me to put my own life at risk to [...]
