Choose knowledge not the rabble

It ain’t everything.

But it ain’t nothing either.

If you want, I can show you how to build your own system’s wiki.

Hiring a legal top gun is moronic

February 17, 2011

If you haven’t already created a sustainable, 2nd opinion-balanced independent franchisee association.

They’ll get you money…maybe.

But the franchisor will claw it all back once the legal cowboy leaves Dodge.

And you may be in a much weaker net position.

Do not sign that gag order

February 15, 2011

You will have chosen darkness.

You will be betraying dozens of families.

That you do not know their specific names, changes your future torment zip.

Get busy choosing light or get busy choosing dark.

Franchisees are mentally lazy

February 10, 2011

Just like 99% of everyone else.

Add unemployment, and franchises become almost irresistible.

The lies don’t have to lead you too far when your young children and 1st mortgage are screaming in ears.

Tier 2 attorneys and franchisors are the most fearful people I know

February 5, 2011

They rule by fear because that is the only language they know.

Talking sense to them?

As useful as force-feeding a corpse.

Fascism and capitalism get along very nicely

February 1, 2011

Democracy conflicts with both because what is best for citizens is frequently not optimal for profiteers.

Democratic rights exist 24/7 for 100% of flesh-and-blood human beings. Or they exist in no time for 0%.

You should never trade your fundamental rights (speech, association) for a dollar.

You’ve got to serve somebody

Franchise, franchisor: who cares.

You don’t seriously think that you can withstand the millions of asshole messages being driven into your family’s brain without trying to set an example with a spiritual practice?

Do you?

Please name the generation that has successfully done that without sky-high levels of neurosis.

Thought so.

Opportunism during wartime is a very old idea

January 15, 2011

Franchisors controlling the price of needed supplies is an evil.

This central fact is true no matter if the public or franchisees understand they’re being gouged. Similarly, a state of war can certainly exist before it has been declared.

Every franchisee is at war with their franchisor over tied buying provisions, irrespective of the profits that each may or may not make.

~80% of all food goes through 2 wholesalers in Ontario, Canada

January 9, 2011

Grocery franchisees get hosed; for sure.

But can you imagine how Ontario farmers and consumers feel? Most economists get uptight when 40% of a market is controlled but 2 or 3 players. The Family Compact lives.

Fool Land is full of some of the smartest people I know

January 8, 2011

Everybody plays the fool.

We’re all the same with an infinite combination of changing mix of strengths and weaknesses.

How we exercise free (once we regain our footing) will determine our destiny.
