Friday Photo: Truth in Humor?

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

Yesterday, as we were coming out of the market,  Ron spotted this bumper sticker.  It made us laugh and we also realized that there is truth in this bit of fun.  

The budget freeze reminded us of Warren Buffet's statement that for every day that the impasse continued, the politicians should have their pay docked...

"When you want to help people, you tell them the truth. When you want to help yourself, you tell them what they want to hear."

~ Thomas Sowell

 

"Most people find facts irritating. Facts interfere with their systems of denial."

~ Walter Darby Bannard

 

"I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts."

~ Abraham Lincoln

Kat Palmiotti I have encountered that on several occasions.  There was a woman who ran a speakers bureau.  She engaged us for a speech.  Our style is to engage the audience with questions and discussions, the audience loved it, we had a great time and great reviews.  She critiqued us for not doing a power point and telling people what they needed to know.  She did not care that we had a standing ovation.,,all she cared  about was her format!  We were incredulous and laughed all the way home on the plane...she no longer is in business...A

And I am not surprised that she is no longer in business. Business owners who don't know what their clients want won't stay in business for long, Ron and Alexandra Seigel !!!

Brian England your statement is spot on, and their focus is on themselves and winning the next election...

Michael Jacobs Like you we try to figure out those personalized license plates.  I had one years ago that very few understood.  The bumper sticker from a retired airforce man also spoke to us as well as the statement on politicians...Yes, one has to be aware, and we all need major doses of laughter on a daily basis.  A

We would pay politicians what they are worth, but minimum wage prevents that.

Hi Ron and Alexandra- another reason for term limits. I totally agree with Myrl Jeffcoat , the lifetime medical and retirement is ludicrous. From the time they are elected, a politician spends their time at working on getting re-elected. Politics should not be a career but a temporary service to their country.

Kathy Streib and their medical benefits are not limited by medicare...I agree that they spend time getting re-elected.  A
