Being in the business or corporate sector is interesting. For the most part I have been in small to midsize companies where interacting with others is unavoidable.
The business world is a heartless bastard. It can be cruel and heartless. But that’s the business side. The people, if you get a chance to know them can be very fun to know. Some whose company you enjoy and then there are those you want no part of outside of the office.
One thing I have noticed, especially in large companies, when you say hello to someone in the hall, you would expect something in return. That’s not even the case in my most recent experience as a consultant.
Granted we are here to work and have a main goal of making the company money. Aside from that, when people work somewhere, does that mean manners go out the window? I have worked with people of all levels of income class. Some at the higher level, I’m not sure they have enough money to buy any manners. The younger or even lower levels don’t seem to have any manners either. What, you can’t use them as a tool on a daily basis to get what you need? Notice I said “daily”? When you use them only to attain a small specific thing, that “niceness” you display for that short bit, will gain you nothing eventually.
When I see someone in the halls, I generally say “hello”. When nothing comes back, even when the person looks me in the eyes. Pretty rude! Everyone says “we need to be kind to like one another.” Really? So when someone says “Hi” to you and you neglect to respond, how is that you being kind? Kindness is not some grandiose concept, it is very simple in its design.
I know it’s the business world, but damn! Even a small “hello” goes a long way!
Typically you can see what the temperament of the country is like when they elect a president.
With the prior eight years you can easily say that people were looking for a savior of some sort. THANK GOD HE FAILED! I don’t say that because I wanted him to, I say it because it took a while for us to get on our knees to ask for the right person to bring a sense of purpose and pride to this nation.
Am I saying I’m all in for Trump? Not at all. My primary choice was Ted Cruz. I too struggled with supporting Trump, the same as others. A good friend of mine told me he was optimistic as to what Trump could accomplish. He saw some things that I couldn’t. I’m staying cautiously optimistic because I’m concerned that he is similar to that of Nero. Albeit he has done great and exceeded my expectations and everyone else’s. I am thankful for that. He’s done some of the things that my friend had hoped.
I see Trump’s presidency on the parallel of a quote from The Dark Knight. At the end of the movie, Commissioner Gordon is explaining to his son why Batman is running, even in his innocence. “He’s a guardian. A watchful protector. A hero, not the hero we need but the hero we deserve.” So, this president that we deserve also has a backbone. Something that the last Republican POTUS’ have not had. They were too concerned with public opinion polls as opposed to actually taking care of the nation. Trump is the president we deserve!
From time to time you will hear Democrats speak of reparations. Even some of those within the international community even say that the United States owe reparations to those whose ancestors were slaves.
The interesting thing about this issue is that it has already taken place. If W.E.B. DuBois wrote in his book, “The Souls of Black Folk”, he discusses this issue at length.
The United States created a branch called the Freedmen’s Bureau. They were in charge of distributing the land and mules. Once that was allocated out, the men that were once slave owners were then beaten and then released IF they survived.
No, reparations took place already and all discussions of it should cease! Those that continue are looking to implement communism, be wary!
I am a fan of Ted Cruz! We voted him in the US Senate 6 years ago and he has done everything we asked him to do. I have met the man several times and let him know that I appreciate everything he has done for the State of Texas. He has been a great representative for this great state!
I know and understand that some people are considering not voting for him. These are fellow conservatives. I have seen some of them reason as to him having bowed before the orange clown (supporting Donald Trump). They believe that he (Ted) should have never supported the man. They refer to him as weak for not standing by his wife when DJT attacked her.
Well, if they would open their ears they would have heard Ted explain why he eventually came to that point. Ted explained he did it because the state of Texas sent him to DC to do a job! Not to go and vote and act in his own personal interests and act like a Child as some conservatives who attack him are doing! As for how Ted not sticking up for his wife, you don’t know what happens behind the scenes. How do you know Ted didn’t discuss it with Heidi as to how to move forward? How do you know that Ted didn’t have a conversation with DJT and tell him, “you want my support, you owe me and my wife an apology!” Bottom line…it really is none of our business! If Ted and President Trump buried the hatchet, so should you! After all, President Trump has been relying on Ted’s input. You can bet he will continue to do so when Ted Cruz gets back there.
So, quit being a sort of willow and go vote Ted Cruz for US Senator!
