If you feel like a massage with warm butter, go to a spa. This show is not for you. But if you truly wish to know more of how the world REALLY works, welcome! Why the Left lies about some things more than others. Do women experience more gravity than men? If America is the richest country in the world, why do we have hungry people? America has the moral obligation to provide aid to poorer countries. Are you underpaid? Your rabbi has the best advice for you. A rich country has the obligation to provide a decent life for all its citizens. Bank appraisers are prejudiced against homes in Black neighborhoods. Raising the minimum wage is welcome but nobody’s well-being should depend on the whims of politicians. What is the value of the house of the last person on earth? The infallible rule for knowing when you are being spun. Integrating the five crucial areas of a happy and successful life. Good living is based on good decisions, so learn how to make them. www.RabbiDanielLapin.com Be a happy warrior not a tennis ball floating down the gutter of life.
If you feel like a massage with warm butter, go to a spa. This show is not for you. But if you truly wish to know more of how the world REALLY works, welcome aboard and we’ll start off with the secret of peace. Not between Taiwan and China but peace and  harmony in your own life. Two special challenges for Happy Warriors. The intoxicating feeling that power gives you. Police officers, politician, flight attendants, Home Owners Associations, even school teachers are susceptible to the almost irresistible seductiveness of exerting power over others. Most feminine women yearn for a powerful man and most men with power achieve more. Having power but not becoming a tyrant. Why most male speed-cops issue warnings and tickets but most female speed-cops issue only tickets. Why I recommend books to some people but not to you. Your main thing is your life and your life is best understood as a unified totality of the 5Fs. No matter what lies ahead, you’ll be better equipped to face it if you just focus on your own 5Fs. Here’s the blueprint https://www.wehappywarriors.com/the-holistic-you that explains how your finances are tied to your family, and how your fitness is linked to your faith and social life. Be a happy warrior not a tennis ball floating down the gutter of life. 
You’ve heard of the Pulitzer Prize. A glimpse into the life of the Jewish, Joseph Pulitzer who used financial principles of ancient Jewish wisdom to transform himself from a penniless 17 year-old immigrant who could not speak English into the owner of a publishing empire in only 15 years. Those principles are just as workable today and can be learned here   https://www.wehappywarriors.com/financial-prosperity-collection  Why two young, single women raced each other around the world in less than 80 days in 1889. Why Nellie Bly decided she didn’t need a gun. One Chinese shipyard has more production capacity than all of America’s shipbuilders. Chinese fishermen don’t only catch fish, they help the Chicom army build fortress colonies. How will your life be impacted when China takes Taiwan? Why do developed countries like the United Kingdom, Sweden and the United States have significantly larger parts of their populations on welfare, basically recipients of charity, while Ghana, Kenya, and Srilanka have almost nobody living on government handouts? Who was it in 1835 who predicted that when the non-working half of a society has succeeded in taking as much as possible from the working and productive part of society, their next step will be wholesale plunder and revolution? If you’re giving money away with no strings attached, the line will be of infinite length. Regardless of political turmoil whether  in your country or internationally, your main thing is your life and your life is best understood as a unified totality of the 5Fs. No matter what lies ahead, you’ll be better equipped to face it if you just focus on your own 5Fs. Here’s the blueprint -The Holistic You: https://www.wehappywarriors.com/the-holistic-you that explains how your finances are tied to your family, and how your fitness is linked to your faith and social life. Be a happy warrior not a tennis ball floating down the gutter of life. 
Yes, in this show I do explain why it is clear that China will take over Taiwan sooner rather than later but I only tell you that in order to help you apply a powerful permanent principle that will enhance your lifestyle. For the same reason I tell you how England and France had a 48 hour window starting on  March 7th, 1936 to avoid the outbreak of World War Two only three years later. They wasted that opportunity through cowardice and ignorance of another crucially useful permanent principle.  Regardless of political turmoil whether in your country or internationally, your main thing is your life and your life is best understood as a unified totality of the 5Fs. No matter what lies ahead, you’ll be better equipped to face it if you just focus on your own 5Fs. Here’s the blueprint https://www.wehappywarriors.com/the-holistic-you that explains how your finances are tied to your family, and how your fitness is linked to your faith and social life.

When the late Prince Philip threatened to evict the Queen of England from his car. Yes, I have just had Coronavirus and no, it is not fun. The controversial medication that I took and which I believe was effective. Why controversy is a pretty silly and meaningless word and why Happy Warriors embrace it. The amazing implications of the mysterious fifty-year cycle in human economic affairs. Fifty years from the invention of the telegraph to the phone and again to television and again to the Internet; and each one signaled a peak in financial productivity. But why should this self-evident pattern be so controversial? Why a young woman who mistakenly believes she is overweight gets mental health guidance but the same young woman who thinks she is a man gets surgery. Who violated church and state separation by putting a Bible verse on the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia? How to cope with your country’s postal service becoming a dysfunctional system of sheltered employment for the incompetent. The three critical pathways to connection that you can deploy to bring better financial results to whatever you do. Remember that whatever storms swirl turbulently around the foundations of your life, just focus on your 5Fs. Here’s the blueprint https://www.wehappywarriors.com/the-holistic-you that explains how your finances are tied to your family, and how your fitness is linked to your faith and social life. Be a Happy Warrior not a tennis ball floating down the gutter of life.
Today’s worst insults and most indicting criticisms: It’s old fashioned; it’s not modern; it’s archaic; it’s outdated; it’s so yesterday. Many mistakenly believe that any idea not sufficiently progressive is automatically false and wrong. But what if some old ideas are actually true and right? Learn to judge the value of an idea regardless of its vintage. And talking of older ideas with tremendous value, let’s teach our children to court rather than date. Why the emotional roller-coaster of teenage and young adult dating does such a good job preparing for divorce.  Why do progressives always paint the past in dark colors? School children are indoctrinated to believe that everything done by Americans yesterday was evil. Did Americans really do nothing more than kill Indians and enslave blacks? Progressives believe that society needs them to make tomorrow bright and redeem us from our horrid past. History lessons are no more than exercises in self-flagellation in order to propagandize children to the idea they need progressive ideas and progressive politicians to seek good.

There are many amazing upper class people without much money yet, and there are even more low class people with plenty of money. Like most of what Karl Marx said, he was also wrong about class. “Class” has nothing to do with money or skin color. It’s a mindset and a way of life. It has everything to do with culture. People headed for the upper class do not go on welfare. People headed to the upper class are ambitious and independent even if they don’t have much money yet. People headed to the upper class get married and stay married. If human life is only material and not spiritual, then government welfare would make sense. But we are actually spiritual beings. So, instead of raising people to upper class, welfare imprisons them in lower class. Lower class people live in and only for the present. With no vision of past or future, lower class lives with entertainment, sex, violence and debt. Low class politicians enrich themselves while obsessing  about climate change and sugary drinks rather than water supply and crime. The Passover Seder is a roadmap to the upper class. https://rabbidaniellapin.com/product/seder-set/. Upper class people are more inspired by past and future than by present. They relate to reality. They can postpone gratification and build up lives, families and wealth. A country needs majority of its population to be upper class for survival. Remember that whatever storms swirl turbulently around the foundations of your life, just focus on your own 5Fs.

So what is  Bitcoin, really? To understand that, we need to understand a soft, silvery substance that is more important than you’d think, even though you see it every day. Some politicians reassure people by saying, “America’s best years are still ahead”. To know if they are telling the truth or gulling voters you should know something about a soft, silvery substance that your rabbi tells you all about in this show. Do you know what has happened to the cost of your electricity lately? Do you know why? This show will tell you some of the unexpected side effects. Do you know why Microsoft, Google, Yahoo and other Internet giants house their colossal computers in a small town in central Washington State, miles from anywhere? Do some of my topics turn off women listeners of this show? The country, Iceland, has a smaller population than the Nevada town of Henderson, yet it dominates the world in two important industries. The reason why early in his presidency in 1933, Roosevelt seized all the gold held by American citizens. How invisible people steal money from you. Do you trust cryptocurrencies?

Who said that people are just squirrels that can’t climb trees? Do you think it was a man who drives a snow plow or an intellectual who was in charge of educating your children? Our world seems to be based on duality - on the number 2. Like two ends of a piece of string. 1-Good; 2-Evil. 1-Light; 2-Dark. 1-Hot; 2-Cold. 1-Physical; 2-Spiritual.  Digital technology works on only 2 digits, 1s and 0s. How many explanations for how humans arrived on Planet Earth? What to say to the man who doesn’t want to get married until he is 100% sure he’s doing the right thing. Alcohol eases spiritual pain not physical. The ideas that people believe makes them much more interesting, much more creative, and much more destructive than the facts they know. The inexplicable placebo and acupuncture. Remember that whatever storms swirl turbulently around the foundations of your life, you must focus on your 5Fs.

Although you might not have noticed it yet, wherever in the world you live, your life is being impacted as America yields international hegemony to China. How is America declining?  One: K-12 Education; two: communication; three: war on financial independence; four: war on traditional family; five: making skin color the universal explanation; six: deficit spending; seven: War on Judeo-Christian faiths.   Since 1964 American rankings in high school science and math have dropped from the very top to lower than 40th out of 70 nations. But our per student spending has continually climbed; how can this be?  We examine two different women, each representative of the two different nations occupying North America.  Why obscenity has crept into the language and is used so much more today than in 1960. How clash of culture kills communication which in turn, undermines the economy. This show is the antidote and here are the weapons https://www.wehappywarriors.com/scrolling-through-scripture-unit1. Enjoy. Remember that whatever storms swirl turbulently around the foundations of your life, you must focus on your 5Fs.

I confess to what is the only hard thing about this show. After our physical needs are met, we all need a world-view. A sense of why things happen the way they do. A way to understand the phenomena we encounter in life. Why we laugh. Yes, we are what we eat, but even more importantly, we are what enters our eyes and ears. Certain heavy metals bio accumulate in your body—once in, they never leave. Similarly with certain sights and sounds, certain ideas and certain pictures—they’re part of you forever. There are forces trying to undermine your progress and trying to retard your efforts to improve yourself and your life. This show is the antidote and here are the weapons https://www.wehappywarriors.com/scrolling-through-scripture-unit1 Enjoy.

Sammy Davis Jr. crooned the song, “I Gotta Be Me” and carefully avoided the advice he sang to his audiences. That’s why he was a success. Let’s see what’s wrong with five incredibly destructive lines and lies. “I gotta be free, I gotta be free” sounds so good. What could possibly be wrong with such inspiring advice? Read about Scrolling Through Scripture here: https://www.wehappywarriors.com/scrolling-through-scripture-unit1. Must every country echo what we see the United States doing? Is it inevitable that societies, after struggling to achieve affluence then eventually descend to decadence and finally oblivion or is there an alternative? What should you do when you hear your spouse saying, “I just don’t love you anymore”? What it would feel like to brainstorm with your clone. What is really wrong with marrying your sibling. Is there any moral difference between a woman wearing a mink coat and a motorcyclist wearing a leather jacket? Being a good listener means exercising your feminine side. How you can be liberated by rules and structure. There are roughly the same number of men as women in the American workforce. So why do men die in work accidents at rates of more than ten times the number of women? Be a happy warrior, not a tennis ball floating down the gutter of life.
If we all lived about a thousand years, by the time we reach middle age, say 400 to 500 years old, we’d all be pretty smart. We’d discover that truth tends to reveal itself over time. We’d sit around saying things like, “Yeah, you really can’t change gender, funny what we used to think when we were young.” That guy in the corner celebrating his 625th birthday would say, “Hey, remember back when we used to think socialism can work?” There’s only one snag: we don’t live for a 1000 years and we are forced into critical life-decisions long before we’ve seen enough of life to be smart. The solution is revealed in this show. Also, the fatal flaws in Frank Sinatra’s famous song that has seriously misled so many men. Ladies, do you really want the man you’re going to marry, to have travelled “…each and every highway…”? Guys, do you want to go into business with a friend who assures you that he is going to do things “…my way”? This show is the antidote and here are the weapons https://www.wehappywarriors.com/scrolling-through-scripture-unit1 Enjoy. Remember that whatever storms swirl turbulently around the foundations of your life, focus on your 5Fs.        
Why do most countries in the United Nations hate America? Why do so many Americans hate America? Developing confidence about a new and perilous undertaking. Develop your ability to concentrate for longer periods of time. Seeing through the cowardice of political correctness. What devious politicians call a ‘spade’. Africa has gold, diamonds, cobalt and nickel, why does it not have wealth? Why presidents and kings get what they want without explicitly asking. When did the Bible appear in English? Never mind who created the Bible; let’s look at what the Bible created. How did so much of the Bible appear in the law systems of America, England, Ghana, Canada, and Australia? The Alaska Airlines pilot who offended a Jewish lady. I didn’t mean to offend you. Happy Warriors look here   https://rabbidaniellapin.com/product/digital-download-library-pack/ and never be a tennis ball floating down the gutter of life. 
Three vital principles for dealing with troubling times and earth-shaking events. In fact, everything you need to know about how to react when you hear news pundits telling you “This has never happened before”. Or you see tv reporters saying in breathless tones, “I’ve never seen anything like it.” Is it really a “Whole new ball game”? Should you plan for the apocalypse? No, you are not a tennis ball floating down the gutter of life, you are a Happy Warrior so take a look at www.RabbiDanielLapin.com and listen to this show.  You’ve never heard anything like it before. You’ve never seen anything like it. This is the first time ever…..oh no, see I’m doing it too. Well get wise with this short show, the first for 2021. 
There is a really scary pandemic out there but it’s not COVID19.  No, it is far more dangerous and way more infectious. It is the pandemic of socialism, and yes, it really will harm you. It is spreading rapidly through the population and here is how to test for infection. Socialists are seldom happy, grateful people. Generally they are grim malcontents. They don’t believe in live and let-live. They are busybodies determined to change the way you live, talk, eat, drive, and shower. They are sure the government knows more than you do—about your hopes and dreams, how best your children should be raised and how you should spend your money. They are hard to cure but you can diminish their ability to harm you and this show teaches you how. The real meaning behind that notorious occult sign, the five-pointed star in a circle. How important is it to know how to ballroom dance or groom a poodle? Words from Bill Clinton’s 1992 Democratic National Convention that will blow your mind. Why the chief rabbi of a certain city became a pirate. Which acclaimed international leader regularly screamed anti-Semitic epithets but was Jewish on both sides of his family? What topic dominates the waking hours of practically every living person? When to use lists and when to avoid them. You are not a tennis ball floating down the gutter of life, you are a Happy Warrior so take a look at Scrolling Through Scripture and meet with us at  www.WeHappyWarriors.com 
You wouldn’t accept laziness or greed in yourself, would you? So why accept unhappiness? Far from the benign maternal spirit fondly imagined by environmentalists and secular fundamentalists, “Mother Nature” is actually trying to kill you. It might be malaria or diphtheria, it could be mosquitoes or mountain lions. Getting lost on a hike and dying of thirst happens to more people than those who are mysteriously rescued by Gaia or Mother Nature. So we come up with cures for diseases and we build seawalls to protect us from hurricanes. Overcoming nature and defeating her homicidal tendencies is what we are to do. And nothing is harder and nothing is more valuable than learning how to defeat our own internal lower natures. Jeep cars and Craftsman tools (Don’t buy them now!) and the real financial value of reputation, yes yours! The very best place to purchase tools. Think you were just unlucky? Think again. Think you were lucky? Think again. Look younger by identifying the number one culprit that causes lines and wrinkles on your face. Develop your potential with this: https://rabbidaniellapin.com/product/chart-your-course-journal/ How to get into the happy habit. Sorry about this but Hollywood is dead wrong! There is not only one person whom you can marry and live happily ever after. The secrets of making it work. Guys, it really is not about finding the right girl. It is about becoming the right man. Failing a commitment to yourself is just as serious as failing a commitment to someone else.   
Does government have the duty of undoing the bad consequences of dreadful decisions that people sometimes make? What is the heart and core of the cultural canyon that cuts through America and most other countries today? Is there a way to unify the views of the Left? Let me give you a glimpse of two women--each has 7 children. They do not all have the same shot at success. Does it make sense that the same people who want to make it easier to kill unborn babies also want to abolish Americans’ right to defend themselves with weapons? The real Trump/Biden debate. Why would a well-known American bureaucrat allow Americans to die of Covid19 while he distributes badly needed, American-created vaccines to other countries? Why Athens loves sentiments (Hope and Change) and hates strategies.  Why Jerusalem sees a world of abundance and opportunity while Athens sees a dark world of shortage and limits. Plato’s Republic vs The Bible. Athens venerates youth and wants to euthanize the older. Jerusalem values the wisdom of age. As a Happy Warrior you are welcome to meet with us at www.WeHappyWarriors.com 
Perry Mason then and now. Thank you HBO for clarifying what this election is really all about. Let’s not argue about what caused the rioting and looting. Instead let’s look at who did the rioting and looting. Let’s see what unified all rioters and looters. (Oh, sorry, I mean “protestors”) They were neither all black nor white. They were neither all rich or poor. They were neither all men or women. But the overwhelming majority of them were fatherless. Most of them, especially in Portland, grew up with no father in their home. Today about 1 in 4 American children grow up without fathers. I explain why this is a huge problem for you living in America but it is also a tremendous problem for you in Estonia, England, Kuwait, Tanzania and Malta. And everywhere else. The real issue distinguishing left from right. Why the left would rather suffer the crime, poverty, and educational failure of fatherless children than apply the cure. They truly hate the medicine more than the disease. What male impotence has to do with the social chaos caused by fatherless boy and girls. The solution for you, no matter when you live? Simple. Become a Happy Warrior. Just go to www.WeHappyWarriors.com and you’ll see. I explain the 5F solution for you regardless of who enters the White House on January 20th, 2021. Between 1960 and 1980, the world changed. Divorce, Abortion, Public Schools turned into GICS. Regardless of where you live, the titanic struggle is the same. It is a simple battle between _______ and _________. In this show I explain it fully. Aspire to become a Happy Warrior.
Why pioneers enjoy passion but seldom prosper financially. For those who follow them, it’s usually the opposite. The difference between becoming a business professional and becoming an artist. Would you rather work for an employer who runs his business strictly on financial performance or one that practices corporate compassion, economic ethics and financial fairness? How I once got hired as a door-to-door salesman. Why some people believe that anything sensual that two bodies wish to do with one another consensually, even adultery, is just fine. But, that everything voluntarily financial that two consensual people wish to do with one another, such as buying and selling goods or services, requires government licensing, regulating and taxing.  What is better way to start a marriage: Love or Legality? Why socialism is the natural default political doctrine for decent people without God. The Business Roundtable and why the heads of major companies committed moral surrender. My book “America’s Real War”. Happy warriors are not tennis balls floating down the gutter of life.

I enjoyed this episode. I especially liked the interview with Cornerstone. I agree too many people think and behave as though poverty is next to Holiness. It always bothers me when I see light bulbs out at church. Also, I found the first question G_d is going to ask interesting. It reminded me of Marley's response to Scrooge when Scrooge tells him he was a good man of business. Marley responded, rather violently, "Mankind was my business!"
