It is the month of August; a resort town sits next to the shores of a lake. It is raining, and the little town looks totally deserted. It is tough times, everybody is in debt, and everybody lives on credit.

Suddenly, a rich tourist comes to town.

He enters the only hotel, lays a 100 dollar bill on the reception counter, and goes to inspect the rooms upstairs in order to pick one.

The hotel proprietor takes the 100 dollar bill and runs to pay his debt to the butcher.

The Butcher takes the 100 dollar bill, and runs to pay his debt to the pig raiser.

The pig raiser takes the 100 dollar bill, and runs to pay his debt to the supplier of his feed and fuel.

The supplier of feed and fuel takes the 100 dollar bill and runs to pay his debt to the town’s prostitute that in these hard times, gave her “services” on credit.

The hooker runs to the hotel, and pays off her debt with the 100 dollar bill to the hotel proprietor to pay for the rooms that she rented when she brought her clients there.

The hotel proprietor then lays the 100 dollar bill back on the counter so that the rich tourist will not suspect anything.

At that moment, the rich tourist comes down after inspecting the rooms, and takes his 100 dollar bill, after saying he did not like any of the rooms, and leaves town.

No one earned anything. However, the whole town is now without debt, and looks to the future with a lot of optimism.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how the United States Government is doing business today.

Success in any endeavor requires communication.

Here are three points to consider.
First point is the source of, and overcoming the almost universal fear of public speaking.  Fear of public speaking is a common observation. Most folks are afraid of public speaking.  Why is that?  Almost all little children get a message from their parents, guardians or elders to avoid talking to strangers.  For a helpless child to talk to strangers is fraught with some risks.  This message is internalized and carried in the back of the mind of every adult.  It’s requires a conscious attempt to overcome the reflexive, primal fear of speaking to strangers or to peers for that matter.
Exercising planned practice sessions of speaking in front of public in a safe environment is the best cure to abolish the fear of public speaking.  Once a speaker overcomes this fear they become confident.  Next they become assertive speakers and unfortunately they may go on to be aggressive speakers.  Being a bully is something to avoid.


Second, let’s look at a very successful public speaker.
Oprah Winfrey was born in rural Mississippi.  She was born into poverty. She was raised by her grandparent.  Then, at age sixteen started her successful life journey.  It went into radio, film and TV careers.  In 2011 she retired her Oprah Winfrey Show after twenty-five years of performance. She interviewed during those shows about 35,000 guests.  Her body of work is documented and video-taped.

Each of her shows was watched on the average by 7 million viewers.
That is a lot of public speaking.

Winfrey did more than just public speaking.  By talking and listening to 35,000 folks she got to hear a lot and learn a lot.  She learned in her own, self-styled, University of Life, from tens of thousands of teachers during her unique TV-studio classroom and Oprah original curriculum.

Oprah Winfrey published five books, sharing her growing life lessons and philosophy of life.  She publishes a monthly magazine and she appeared as actress in three feature films under world-renowned producers. Today Oprah’s net worth is estimated at over $4 billion.

Get this, she is universities’ commencement address speaker in high demand.  Her academic recognition is in the numerous honorary doctoral degrees she is awarded.  Even the University of Life confers doctoral degrees.


Third, let’s watch renowned politicians.  A politician elected to public office is a public speaker.  He must be a compelling public speaker.  President Ronald Reagan was referred to as the Great Communicator.

Look in front of your eyes at the public speaking performances of Donald Trump.  He is a fascinating to watch public speaker.  He connects with his audience.  He interacts with is audience. He uses vocal variety and body language while he speaks.  He uses props.  He tells stories and he tells jokes.  Donald Trump is a skilled off the-cuff speaker who can continue his oratorical performance for hours.  Donald Trump is not a methodic president, but he is a compelling demagogic orator. The proof is in his election to office despite his personal shortcomings.


All told, here is a proof that communication is the currency of success.  Success is what you may define yours to be.

When the Democrat US Representative – a Congresswoman from Minnesota – referred to the “Benjamins”, she likely had in mind, Queen Victoria’s most revered British PM Benjamin Disraeli.

I don’t see anything wrong with that.  No need for her later, to apologize!

Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli was the founding father of the British conservative party.  Winston Churchill worked hard to emulate Benjamin Disraeli as a Prime-Minister.

Benjamin Disraeli  was also the architect of the British Empire.  Disraeli arranged for Britain’s acquisition of the Suez Canal through a loan guarantee he arranged with the assistance of the Rothschild Brothers.

And yes, Benjamin Disraeli was the first Prime Minister in the UK from a minority ethnicity.  And yes, of Jewish ancestry.  Nothing Benjamin Disraeli did to apologize for. God Save the Queen!
Oh, every now and then there are other noteworthy Benjamins.
Benjamin Herzl was the ideological author of Zionism.  Oops, some don’t like Zionism.  My condolences.

Then there is Benjamin De Rothschild that some may not like.   I can understand – it’s because he is young and successful in his financial business….  It’s called jealousy of the successful.
The real Benjamin that many folks like to hate is…  Prime-Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.  Well, he is Prime Minister through democratic elections.

I couldn’t make this stuff up.
What does the LGBT movement have to gain from getting involved in the Middle East conflict?
The American LGBT movement likes to be in bed with Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO).
What is the relevance of LGBT to the PLO?  Go figure.
The LGBT movement is losing it.  You have to read it to figure it out.
LGBT married the PLO

On February 1, 2019 I ordered a hotel room reservation at the Courtyard by Marriott in Flint MI, through a seamy, (phishy), web site:  –  This web site charged $19.99 that was supposed to be refunded to my CC after I check in.
It was a bad start right there.
Upon arrival to Courtyard by Marriott in Flint MI the temperature was -2F outside.  Three cars were parked outside on an ice-rink parking lot.
I checked in. Before my CC was swiped I asked for the expected balance and it met the information given to me on the confirmation.  My card was swiped and I was handed a key card to the room.
Next came the old surprise trick:  The receptionist handed me a “Parking Permit” announcing that a $10 parking fee will be added to my final statement.
Note:  The parking lot was practically deserted on a Friday night.  There is no valet service and there is security service.
Given the subfreezing temperature outside, and that cancelling the CC transaction will generate more complications I accepted the circumstances.
This was a cheap highway robbery in dark of the night of a captive traveler by the Marriott Corporation.
The irony is that I have a “Marriott Rewards Gold Elite” status by their business agreement with United Airlines.
One more thing the “” service charge is disputed separately.  That’s simple and easy.
