Regular readers of my screeds know the animus I harbor towards what passes as “entertainment” today, especially Hollyweird and MOST of television.
Every once in a while, a lone voice of reason comes from that vast, barren wasteland. The story is from Matthew Burke at TPNN.com. Enjoy.
Counting Cars star Danny Koker, aka: “The Count,” whose rise to stardom grew out of his passion to beautifully restore and customize classic cars and motorcycles out of his Las Vegas-based shop called Count’s Kustoms, was recently interviewed by Michael Stephens of Bending Reality TV, and candidly discussed his beliefs regarding the wrong turn America has taken and his prescription for fixing it.
Koker told Stephens it’s time to quit trying to rewrite American history and to get back to what made America great — the U.S. Constitution.
“If we went back to the way it was 150 years ago, how happy would you be?” Stephens asked.
“I’d be phenomenally happy,” Koker answered. “I’d be happy if we’d just go back to the Reagan days, man. God bless Ronald Reagan! I miss that man,” he proclaimed while looking towards the heavens.
Koker then told Stephens his prescription for curing America’s problems.
“Let’s go back to the original days. Let’s go back to original writing of the Constitution,” Koker urged. “The Constitution works, man,” he affirmed.
“Let’s quit trying to rewrite it; let’s quit trying to reinterpret it — ‘Oh, what they really meant was this’ — No! What they meant is what they said,” Koker contended.
Koker went on to explain that excessive government regulations have held back the growth of his businesses.
“To be told by a government that cannot run themselves how to run my business, is disturbing,” he stated, going on to say that government meddling in his business stifles growth and sadly admits that in today’s world, “You can only grow so much,” because of government regulation.
“I honestly am the kind of guy who wants to grow, and grow, and grow businesses….but because of government regulations, and because of them meddling in my business, you’ve got to hold back. You’ve got to hold back or else it’s going to cost you too much — once it starts costing you too much, your business is in trouble. So, you’ve got to hold back. You can only grow so much in today’s world.”
Koker throws in a real gem about progressive leftist Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Senator Harry Reid, which makes the interview even more enjoyable (3:40 mark), and then openly shared his Christian faith.
“I’m a Christian human being. I’m a Christian man. I’m a firm believer in the Lord upstairs. I believe in fundamental Christianity,” Koker told Stephens.
You can just see the Marxist political-correctness police collective heads exploding. When you mention God, the Constitution, and Ronald Reagan in the same interview, what else is there to irritate intolerant progressives? Oh yeah, the Second Amendment.
Danny Koker, aka “The Count” was orginally from the Detroit area. Good to see he found fame and fortune in Vegas. At least he doesn’t have too many worries about black leftist mayors running him out of town, like he most surely would have in Coleman Young, or Kwame Kilpatrick’s Detroit.
Not to mention “shook down” for political graft by the unions, nor other leftist run enterprises.
In this day and age of celebutards’ CONSTANT bashing of THE NATION which granted them the FREEDOM to pursue their “craft”, and make untold riches from it, it is indeed refreshing to hear The Count tell it like HE sees it, NOT some stupid publicist putting empty words in his mouth.
BTW, if one is in the position to have a car, light truck, or custom cycle built or restored, The Count and his team build some of THE best customs. Not only will you get one BITCHIN’ ride, but your dollars will be going to someone who is on OUR side.
CLYDE. Pleased to see a celebrity who believes as Mr. Koker does, AND seemingly enjoying pissing off the left at the same time. Below is some of his, and his team’s work.
And MY favorite :
