Observing the endless stream of …

Posted on May 16, 2014 by Robert Ringer No Comments

Observing the endless stream of immoral and amoral political garbage that piles up daily in Washington makes me thankful that I learned early on how important it is to clearly define your moral standards. By doing so, it gives you an ethical compass that prevents you from straying off course when the winds of temptation […]

Posted on May 14, 2014 by Robert Ringer Comments (1)

To many in our entitlement-addicted society, going the extra mile is a jogging term. On more than one occasion, I’ve heard a worker insist that something he was asked to do was not part of his “job description.” Balderdash. Precise job descriptions are B.S. in the world of the entrepreneur. I guess I’m just old […]

Posted on May 12, 2014 by Robert Ringer Comments (2)

My post the other day about the moral revolution that has taken place in America — indeed, in the entire Western world — evoked a passionate response. Today, I’d like to move on and explain that at the very heart of this moral revolution was the shift from the sacrosanct belief in individual rights to […]

The other day, a friend of mine was lamenting about how the America we grew up in had become a totally different country in such a short period of time. In a discouraged tone, he asked, “How did it happen?” “It’s pretty simple,” I told him. “It happened while Americans were watching the NBA playoffs, […]

Posted on May 5, 2014 by Robert Ringer No Comments

I have often reminded readers that the majority opinion is usually an opinion offered by fools, which is why the majority generally harbors a strong dislike for truth. That said, it occurred to me this morning that some readers might come to believe that just because a majority believes something, that, of and by itself, […]

Posted on May 4, 2014 by Robert Ringer No Comments

The ongoing, nonstop stream of lies coming out of Washington should make truth lovers love truth all the more. Unfortunately, however, most people do not love truth, which is why messengers are so universally hated. By messengers, of course, I’m referring to those bad guys who have an annoying habit of exposing lies and cover-ups […]

Posted on May 3, 2014 by Robert Ringer No Comments

Today a reader asked me what I thought was the most important thing to know about being a good writer. In truth, there are a thousand aspects of good writing, many of which I discuss in my self-publishing program, but the rule I most frequently zero in on is: That which is well said is […]

Posted on May 2, 2014 by Robert Ringer No Comments

The Donald Sterling saga is the latest news story to have the media all atwitter, but there are some unique aspects to this particular incident. Just about everyone is in agreement that Sterling’s remarks were pretty bad, so there’s no debate there. What is very much in debate, however, is the issue of whether it’s […]

As you watch the government increasingly violate its own laws, it may remind you that there are a great many laws on the books that you abide by, but with which you disagree. A tough question then, is whether or not you should obey laws that you believe to be immoral. Unfortunately, we are not […]

Posted on April 25, 2014 by Robert Ringer No Comments

I don’t know for sure who said it (Pascal has been credited with saying something close to it), but I’ve been thinking lately about a quote I read years ago in one of Viktor Frankl’s books, which I believe read: “The heart has reasons that are beyond reason.” This is where reason and faith would […]
