I'm really old-fashioned. My motto is and has always been. Bullshit walks and money talks. Meaning simply anyone can say anything at an initial meeting. But as far as I'm concerned. Actions speak louder than words. And again, what I believe is extremely important to understand is that while my writing is of course extremely bombastic. It's supposed to be. I'm a human rights advocate. I'm not supposed to be moderate or in the very middle I'm supposed to make the reader as uncomfortable as possible so that the reader has a better opportunity of asking themselves the harder questions. That's my job.
So again, actions speak louder than words. And also it's very important to remember that I really do believe from knowing politics, and watching them all these years and having grown up in a rather political family to some degree. That one of the motivations for why both sides are trying to make sure that the financial cliff is avoided is because they want to be able to get their own pay raises. And they know that if they allow the financial cliff to take place. It's going to be harder for them to convince all of us that it's okay for them to take money away from us while they continue to get their races. They know it will be harder for them to convince us of that. So consequently, that happens to be a rather strong motivator psychologically. Because they want that money. They want that money very badly. And the only way they're going to get that money is if they don't take any money away from us.
Reality, ladies and gentlemen. You need to think in terms of reality, no matter what. There is so much information flying around the world these days on every single subject imaginable that it becomes very easy to become fooled by some types of information. Becomes very easy. So you have to look as closely as you can. At every single thought, word and action by every single person saying anything.
I've always maintained that if someone is not willing to die for what they say publicly or what they write publicly, then the first question I have on my mind is that if they are not prepared for what they are willing to say or write publicly, then why are they saying or writing. What they are publicly?
I and the other hand am prepared to die at any given second for anything I have written or said publicly. But that's just me. But that rule does very well apply to people in news broadcasting as it does to anyone in public life. When they say something the first question on your mind should be. Are they willing to die for what they are saying or writing? Because if they aren't. Then why are they saying or writing. What they are saying or writing?
It has to do with commitment, ladies and gentlemen. It has to do with honesty. It has to do with someone believing in what they are saying enough to be willing to die for what they are saying or writing. In normal life we all say things every day. Many times we regret what we have said. People in public life don't have that luxury. Because when they say something. What they say or what they write can actually have rather far-reaching ramifications. That's why that particular question is so important. Are they willing to die for what they are saying or writing publicly? And if they are not, then why are they saying or writing. What they are saying or writing publicly?Technorati Tags: Obama,talks,taxes,deficit,Ticket,Yahoo,News,motto,Bullshit,money,Actions,words,human,rights,reader,politics,degree,cliff,world,subject,word,action,person,life,commitment,Many,times,People,luxury,lawmakers,motivations,ramifications,louder,harder,ladies,gentlemen
