At a young age, I had gone into my own business. Collections were always slow and as a result, the creditors were always calling for payment. It wasn’t that they wouldn’t be paid; it was just that I couldn’t collect it as fast as they wanted to be paid.
With multiple phones constantly ringing from suppliers asking for payment, I knew I had to put these calls to sleep. The answer was simple: Respond honestly (something the people running this country seem to have a problem with). With the caller(s) requesting a check asap, I would tell them honestly, I cannot do that. They would raise their voice demanding I send them a check. My answer was simple and honest. I would tell them “I can get you off the phone by saying, Yes; I will get a check out to you immediately. You would be happy that you heard what you wanted too. The problem is that in a few days, when the check doesn’t arrive, you would be back on the phone, very upset that I lied to you. So what I will tell you is the truth. You will have a check by: _____. You may not like that, but in time you will get to like what Harris says, because you know it will always be the truth. When you know the truth, you will be able to depend upon what I tell you and plan your own financial situation accordingly”.
It didn’t take a lot of time, but my reputation as an honest, truthful business person (and person, in general) was clear to everyone. As a result, suppliers and sub-contractors were always more than happy to work with me.
So where is this little personal story leading to?
In getting past the BS the candidates throw out, and what the media writes, I always found it is best to find out for myself the facts behind everything. The candidates all have voting records and a history. It’s easy to check them out.
In doing my ‘Due Diligence’ on each possible candidate, I listened today to a ‘Facebook’ video by Bernie Sanders. Basically he was talking to a room filled with conservative, anti-abortion people (I believe they were Evangelists). As a Liberal, naturally he was asked the question about abortion. I have to tell you, I was amazed and extremely impressed. He spoke exactly as I did in the story I related to you above. It is an absolute must that everyone watches it. Instead of being booed for his position by this house full of Conservatives, he was cheered. People want to hear the truth and don’t care if it’s an opposing view; the important thing is that he spoke the truth. It’s an incredible insight into this person seeking nomination for the right to run for the highest office in this country.
Here is something that is the epitome of hypocrisy: http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/4305348 He is not fit to govern. He needs to be booted out.
Hillary: Check out her voting record I published last week. She definitely seems to appear to be a corporate puppet, while representing herself as a Liberal. A Liberal what? Liberal with Lobbyist friends? Just Google: Hillary Clinton and Monsanto and you will pull up numerous ties to corporate business.
FYI: Google: Roundup Monsanto and California

People, please you have got to stop listening to the lies these people put out there, just to win your vote. Don’t vote for a bunch of hypocrites just because they are saying things they know you will like.
They tell you Universal Healthcare, Single Payer, is no good for you or this country. Take aa really good look below about Denmark – they don’t seem to be doing too badly.
It’s amazing, but everywhere I turn, I find they are lying to me about what is and is not good for me.
A repeat from last week, but a must absolute read:
Google: 20 years of data reveals that Congress doesn’t care what you think.
There are only two candidates that are not corporate puppets.
Stand up behind and support either Donald or Bernie
Make your vote a statement of your being tired of the same ole, same ole.
It’s MY Country and ‘It’s MY Money & I Want It!’
is the name of the game. Learn to stand up for yourself and not be intimidated by the corporations and their political puppets.
