This Is Herman Cain!: My Journey to the White House
This Is Herman Cain!: My Journey to the White House
When Herman Cain speaks, people listen. When he debates, he wins.
If you care about the future of America, you have heard of the down-to-earth political newcomer running for president, the straight-talking man of the people with blunt assessments of what America needs. Originally overlooked by mainstream politicos and media, Herman Cain is truly a candidate from “outside the Beltway,” but no longer one who is being ignored.
While Herman Cain has been the host of a popular conservative Atlanta-area radio talk show called The Herman Cain Show, a different name originally captured American interest. As CEO, Herman Cain transformed Godfather’s Pizza from a company teetering on the verge of bankruptcy into a household word. Cain—as those with an interest in commonsense solutions to political problems will remember—is also famous for using the language and logic of everyday business to expose the fallacies inherent in Clinton assumptions about “Hillarycare” during a 1994 televised town hall meeting.
Herman Cain’s rise is the embodiment of the American dream. His parents, Luther and Lenora Cain, made a living the only way black people could in the ’40s and ’50s. Luther held down three jobs, including being a chauffeur; Lenora cleaned houses. They had two big dreams: to buy a house and to see their sons graduate from college. With dedication and hard work, they made both these dreams come true. In this thrilling memoir, Herman Cain describes his past and present . . . and the future he is determined to create, a future that will put our country back on track. His message resonates because he describes the American reality, and his down-to-earth personal tale of hope and hard work is both unforgettable and inspirational.
What is it in my DNA that years ago prompted me to forgo the ease of cruise control and take on the enormous challenge of doing my part toward making America a better place for my granddaughter and the generations to come?
Why do I, a son of the segregated South, refuse to think of myself as a “victim” of racism?
What is it that motivates me to insist on defining my identity in terms of “ABC”—as being American first, black second, and Conservative third?
Just who is Herman Cain? And how did I get this way?
Just a hint: it may have had something to do with lessons learned from my parents, Lenora and Luther Cain, Jr.

A visit to the Rietveld Schroder House in Utrecht, NL, remains a fascinating experience. It was designed by Gerrit Rietveld for Truus Schroder in 1924. As Rietveld’s client she had a great influence on the result. This house is the only building ever realized on the basis of the architectural principles of De Stijl. Typical features are the use of the Stijl colours red, blue and yellow, in combination with white, grey and black, the relation between interior and exterior and the unity between the free-standing pieces of furniture and the fitted parts of the interior. According to Rietveld and Schroder one had to have an active attitude to life. For them too living in a home is a conscious act. The furnishing of the house reflects this conviction. The occupant has to perform a transaction for every activity: the bathroom is created by opening out a wall, while the sleeping areas could be screened off with sliding walls, and privacy was obtained by placing shutters in front of the windows. The house is literally a machine for living in. After the death of Truus Schroder in 1985 the house became the property of the Rietveld Schroderhuis Foundation that in turn entrusted it to the Centraal Museum to administer once it had been restored. It has been open to the public since 1987. At the end of 2000 UNESCO placed it on the World Heritage List as an important and unique icon in Western architectural history and a masterpiece of human creativity. The Schroder House occupies a key position in Rietveld’s work.

(I cheated this picture was taken MONTHS ago) Yeah. Small (1100 sq ft), but good enough size for just Ethan and I right now. The yard needs LOTS of work !!! Rob and I are thinking of putting in terrace style steps up to the front, expanding the driveway to two vehicle widths and doing some minor landscaping. Read notes for more.
