About the Author

Hi, I’m Fred,
At my age, I’m thinking ahead and want to go peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather and not screaming like the passengers in his car.
I was born in San Diego and for 50 years (since age 21) struggled to find the best answers to recurring political issues.
So, I’m sharing, while still able, these political nuggets gleaned from researching over 500 books on the most persuasive responses to political issues that never seem to go away.
I would have loved to have a short reference guide like this when I was on the San Diego City Council to respond quickly to these issues when they repeatedly pop up every couple of years; some of which I never heard of before being elected.
I grew up in Casa de Oro (East San Diego County). My family moved and I graduated from Pt. Loma High in 1958. I joined a family cleaning business and in 1968 became a commercial real estate broker. I got ticked off at the government, ran and was elected to the San Diego City Council in 1977 where I served only one term as promised.  I have two adult children and have been married 3 times, most recently in 1987 in Moscow, Russia (USSR) to Dr. Irina Antonova.
I need your help in forwarding your comments about the book to your friends or putting them on Facebook in order to reach politicians, Tea Party members and political junkies across the country (and BTW reach my publisher’s goal of 10,000 sales).  Please note these issues are intended to be the more controversial ones and this Handbook is for providing you with more than “Bumper Sticker” responses to important topics of the day. (Look for 15 more issues in 2014).
