Summer Changes

Howdy Folks!

Dave Robison here, for Tex's Amway Global Blog.

Summer is here, or very nearly here, and I decided to spruce up Tex's Blog with a few changes.

You can now view some great photos of Texas in the side bar as well as catch up on the "goings on" in several of Texas' largest cities. Maybe you wanna plan a summer trip to The Lone Star State; and plan to attend one of the events.

Laying out under the stars on a warm summer night may be your passion--if so, I've included a gadget that will let you see some amazing photography of our galaxy. Too bad, a summer vacation there might not be in the cards for a few more years.

Of course, don't forget the regular features in the sidebar; Tex is always adding some comments to his Position Papers links. If you don't see a new blog entry in a couple of days, that doesn't mean you can't still mosey on over for a look at the blog and try out the new gadgets or read some new comments.

But, we won't mind if during part of the hot weather, you unplug from the Internet and take a dip like the boys in the photo from Burnet, Texas. Burnet, by the way, is the Bluebonnet capital of Texas.

Betcha can't guess which of the 4 dudes is me!

While you're in Texas, you ought to stop by and visit me as well, I can tell you all about the LCKs and their tool scams. Not planning on being in Texas? No problem, just click on the "TALK TO TEX" link and it will be almost as good as being here.

Why can't "Bridgett" use the same logic she used to talk about government waste to describe the tool scam? She says,

"I'm wondering why the idea of REDUCING EXPENSES is not considered.

There is so much waste and corruption in governments. We, in America may APPEAR to be more "civilzed" but the bottom line is that the United States citizens are being taken for a ride just like in an overtly corrupt government.

Being from Illinois, from Cook County (Chicago), I will tell you that my tax dollars are NOT being used for the betterment of my county and my state. And the Federal government (esp. now that we've got the Chicago Machine in there) is the same deal just on a bigger scale.

Do I want to "help the poor?" ABSOLUTELY! However, I am much more willing to donate my money, and have most (usu 95% for good charities) of it go to the people in need, than to be taxed on my money and have a teeny tiny bit go to those of it in need, while the rest go to a select few polititians, and their friends and family who have "patronage" jobs and contracts.

Living right next to Cicero, a freakin' third-world-country-run town and seeing the INSANE abuse of power. Which hooks right in to Chicago, and in to Illinois, and Washington D.C. Having someone close to me who covered that town for three years for the Chicago Tribune and just seeing the magnitude of the And, of course, this isnt some isolated incident. When you've got big piles of Other People's Money (OPM), which that's what Government is, there is corruption and waste.

Dont' even get me started!

ibofb has an interesting video on his site which is supposed to represent what happens with Amway, and does, in limited cases:

However, this is before the tool scam becomes known. The video doesn't continue. If it did, it would show how everyone walks away after the tool scam becomes known, with 99+% losing money.

Here's a better representation for most IBOs, because many more people are becoming aware of the tool scam:

Now that I've been booted off another lame blog/forum: I will respond to the below point:

corplinx - I read Tex's blog. I don't understand why anyone would continue to operate in a business so rife with fraud, coercion, and heavy handedness as he describes it. ---- This person obviously only skimmed my blog, as I clearly state in several places my "prime directive" is to take down the tool scam, and have elected to do that by driving a wedge between Amway and the LCKs. I took this approach way before the UK took the same approach, and now the LCKs have disappeared from UK soil.

Tex said...

Adding to the above point, I am taking action to prevent others from being financially and otherwise abused by the LCKs. corplinx can't seem to understand there are still people in the world helping other people.
