South Carolina Congressman Ralph Norman told Alex Marlow on his radio show after the Las Vegas shootings by Stephen Paddock that, “For this to happen just shows the issues this country has.”

To say that guns ought to be more regulated is just the wrong way,” Rep. Norman continued. “Now, what ought to be the topic of discussion is the tragedy that took place and how we can help to get God back into the mainstream of public life and it was absent in the killer and anyone that tries to make political hay, again, by talking about gun control, is backward in my opinion.”

Norman is a real estate developer professionally, and is serving in the U.S. House of Representatives from South Carolina’s 5th congressional district.


Stephen Paddock and Las Vegas Authorities, Reports

Speculation is rampant as to the reasons for Paddock’s killing spree, as the photo/headline collage below reflects.


Within hours of the murders. ISIS claimed Paddock as one of its’ “soldiers” and a convert to Islam. While ISIS has at times made false claims of responsibility, experts say they are generally accurate about such statements. Time will tell.

A theory has not been published by authorities at this time as to what motivated the Las Vegas shooter.

What is known so far from press conferences is that Paddock was wealthy, not poor. He was not ex-military, but he was a hunter. While the FBI said that he was not a radical, the more precise terminology was later clarified that Paddock has not appeared on any terror watch lists.

During a recent press conference, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo asked out loud if the gunman, may have been “radicalized.” If so, Clark said that authorities were attempting to uncover the source of his radicalization.

Fox News reported that the value of his weapons and ammunition were estimated to be about $100,000.

The statement was made just hours after the shooting by local authorities in Vegas that this type of killing could not be prevented.  The man had no criminal record. The guns were obtained legally, but a rich man could have obtained them illegally. What could prevent this?


Full Measure’s Sharyl Attiksson’s media bias chart is useful in sorting out the agendas behind various headlines and news sources.

Back to Basics?

Last spring, the left-of-center New York Times reported on Bashir Mohammad, age 25. They reported then that he, “fought on the front lines of the Syrian civil war for Jabhat al-Nusra, an offshoot of Al Qaeda, less than four years ago.”

Now Mohammad “wears a cross and has one on the wall of his living room, where other recent converts join him for weekly Bible readings.”

The right-of-center Fox News reported that, “it is Muslim converts who are reviving struggling Christian churches” in Europe.


Britian’s Independent said similarly in late 2016. “More and more refugees are converting from Islam to Christianity.”

Manufactured Housing Advocate, Rev Donald Tye

We don’t need government to stand between people’s ability to directly help [and serve] each other.  The example of people helping people in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, regardless of race or creed is a fine example of the best of America,” said the Rev. Donald Tye in a joint statement with MHLivingNews publisher, L. A. “Tony” Kovach last month.


From “Seek First” a Post-Charlottesville Message of Healing and Principles for America,” found at this link here, or by clicking the image above. 

Americans should want to be politically and economically free, and we should stand up for the equal rights of all under the law,” Tye stated.

There are some things that are difficult to legislate, but are entirely in keeping with sound moral values.  There are over 1 million laws in effect in the U.S., so clearly the sheer volume of laws makes most unknowable to the vast majority of citizens or even legal experts,” Tye said.


There have always been those who’ve used race or other artificial divisions to advance their own misguided agendas. We may be black, white, olive, red, yellow or tan,” Tye and Kovach stated, adding. “But we all breathe the same air, drink the earth’s water, travel similar roads, and bleed the same red blood.”

The manufactured housing – and truth, justice – promoting pair outlined the numerous struggles the country faces, which impacts professionals and citizens in a variety of ways.

We are members of a given race, social, political, religious or other group. But we all ought to be Americans First. Neighbors first.”

Is Cong. Norman Right?

Isn’t Congressman Norman correct?  What’s needed isn’t gun control, but a rediscovery of the role that God must play in a healthy society.

The White House press office provided among the West Wing Reads, the following, “William Murchison of RealClearPolitics writes President Trump’s declaration of the Las Vegas massacre as “an act of pure evil” is a “bull’s-eye,” before discussing the battle between good and evil in “our rancorous age.”

What’s wrong is that not enough are asking what’s right.

That struggle between good and evil will shape and influence every facet of American and global life, including business.


Can political correctness save America?  Hasn’t that led the nation to this point, over the course of decades?  “Applied Principles, not Propaganda, or Posturing,” says the Rev. Tye and publisher Kovach. Original photo credit, Wikipedia, text credit,

America has welcomed people from every background. Yet historically, we must admit that this was founded as a Christian nation. We need the glue of faith to hold a nation together. An amoral or immoral society would not long survive,” said Tye. For their entire thought-provoking statement, click this link here. ## (News, analysis.)

Many Voices being heard a Key to advancing the MH Industry?

December 9th, 2014 Comments off

idea-image-credit=enrichment-journal-posted-daily-business-news-mhpronews-com-In an effort to push forward with political, best practices, policies, image and other issues, the Manufactured Housing Industry is wise to take a page from IBM and get many voices involved. In an article for the New York Times (NYT) by Phil Gilbert, general manager of IBM Design, he credits success by giving all those involved a voice.

IBM’s Gilbert states: “But getting the best work out of a team isn’t about silencing the loudest person. It’s about getting everyone involved to explore every angle, bring all ideas to the surface and collaborate on a path forward.”

Gilbert says many different strategies used during his time at IBM says, “when your organization is in the midst of transformation — whether it is a three-person start-up hiring a fourth employee or a big global company leading major shifts in technology — you are faced with teams of people who don’t necessarily have the shared experiences that enable them to behave well together. Team dynamics can easily get in the way of good ideas, and the loudest voice often wins.

Certainly, with manufactured housing on a 5 year uptick, but still at historically low levels and consolidations occuring on a routine basis, most pros would agree this is a time of transformation.

A recent article posted by MHProNews,  Danny Ghorbani, President and CEO of the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) said: In my view, manufactured housing is a unique industry, blessed with hard-working men and women who are dedicated to building the most affordable, safe, efficient and state-of-the-art homes for American families – and the time has come for an aggressive campaign to spread the industry’s positive message nationwide.Read More

As noted in a recent DBN report, there are many voices that speak for Manufactured Housing, ranging from associations, corporate, investors, professionals and other interested parties. As IBM’s Gilbert noted, involvement now is a key to advancing the businesses that make up the MH industry. ##
