My fellow Empowering Clerks, Bureaucracy lovers and EPF managers,
Many people think we are entering dark times. But dark times can also bring the best in us. In the past few weeks I've seen so many people awaken, take action, care, show compassion and use creativity to generate love and happiness. I too vow to take theelection result as a call to action, and promise to serve and protect our nation as a Certified Village Fool (self-issued). You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one - more and more people have discover and use Supportive Bureaucracy services in their workplace, community and public spaces (the ECN also has a DC now! Just like the Neo-Nazis!). Since the election, we found a 318% increase in illegal issuing of Playful Paperwork forms (which we support) as people download forms, certificates and embosser templates at www.supportivebureaucracy.org and print documents themselves. 219% more people registered as Empowering Clerks and started Empowerment Processing Facilities (EPF) around the country (!) For example the ECN of Bend, Oregon conducted a Joy Permit issuing marathon during which hundreds of documents were issued. If you'd like to provide your fellow Muslim and Latino friends with proper documentation, we also have Certificates of Recognition available in Spanish and Arabic (and many other languages as well). Soon we'll have an official branch in Taiwan and our Racism Release Form is helping people around the country to reflect on their experiences regarding color and color blindness and is popular especially in colleges.

Good news!! CSB Research Department recently found that with only 17 points increase in Love Production worldwide, we may be able to defeat Evil by March 1st, 2021 (not too bad isn't it?) Numbers don't lie - do your share in protecting our world and produce love more effectively and efficiently. To help you with that we made the Love Receipt, which allows you to provide instant recognition for people who give love.
Before the election I visited the RNC, DNC and two Trump rallies before the election. You can read more about the experience and see some images in my new artist book - Regulations are Flexible. For your convenience I uploaded it as PDF to www.Bit.ly/RegulationsAreFlexible and you can also request a printed copy by mail (no forms required just reply to this email :) If you like my work, please consider to Pay it Forward or support me via PayPal or check. Thanks!

As usual, the Empowering Clerks Network is spending 62% of its resources providing proper recognition for those who deserve it (95.3% of the population according to research). No election results will change that, and we are determined to keep providing you with the best possible service. We always have your back when it comes to paperwork, but recently we added a new service to our official documents - the ECN Awards. We offer special trophies for Caregiver of the Year, Compassion Master, Relationship Expert, Creativity Generator and more. If you'd like to provide trophies to members of your community please contact me for details or simply visit www.crownawards.com (they can instantly increase recipient's self esteem by 19%! Almost as efficient as the ECN Certificate of Recognition).
My friend and mentor Allen Spivack (The Other Man of Steel) receives the ECN Compassion Master trophy award. Want to honor your friends with ECN trophies? It's affordable, easy and fun!
Get ready for the holidays! Gift an ECN Compassion Card to your loved ones!
That's it for now. I have to admit that I wanted to drop the project all together as a reaction to the election, but I decided to keep doing my work thanks to the response I got from recipients and providers of services across the country, who used Joy Permits, Official Posted signs and other documents to answer some of their needs after the elections. I'm grateful for the opportunity to help others with my artwork, and hope to increase my efficiency rates in the future.
Speaking of that... Last week I started Compassionate America, LLC. Not only that it might be the first corporation in US history that was named by a mistake (I misspelled Bureaucracy and had to amend it so I looked for another name) but it also has no business plan whatsoever (!!!) I was simply anxious to get sued by Trump after I threatened to sue him and thought that it's a good idea to protect my family that way. But regardless, I'm thinking that maybe we should treat love and compassion like a business, invest our resources wisely and always seek growth. I hope to use Compassionate America as an umbrella organization to the Empowering Clerks Network and the Center for Supportive Bureaucracy to increase compassion stats using humor and Playful Paperwork. Wish me luck! And feel free invite me to offer services and present the project at your conference, event, corporate party or as a guest artist.
