Donald Trump Thinks He Can Buy The Presidency in 2016

These days the millionaires and billionaires thinks just because they are very wealthy they can do whatever they want and get what ever they want. And sometimes they actually do and get what ever they want. I’ve even seen this happen before and very often. It’s happened in sports , education, businesses and mostly politics.

For instance Donald Trump thinks that he can actually buy his way in to the White House in 2016. Just because he has a knowledge in real estate and has been very successful in some of the TV shows and pageants that he’s hosted such as the Apprentice and the Miss America Pageant. Trump actually thinks that he is going to buy his way to the presidency.

But I don’t think the American people will vote Trump in to the White House in 2016. Donald Trump might be a successful business man and a good TV host, but if you ask me I think Donald Trump is a damn fool when it comes to politics. He insults women, mocks people lies a lot to me he’s just a pathological liar.

And also he goes on television, twitter and most of the social media networks on the internet and says the most craziest things that I have ever heard a candidate says about his opponents who’s trying to become president of the united states of America. Last Friday Donald Trump was on stump in New Hampshire and he was saying the most ridiculous things about one of his Republican primary nomination candidates Ben Carson.

Donald Trump said that Ben Carson is stupid and incapable of running the country, because he said Ben Carson’s own team thought that their candidate can’t seem to understand how foreign policy works, so that disqualifies Ben Carson to be the President of the United States of America (Commander and Chief).

Donald Trump the business man thinks because he has built an empire in the real estate business with all the money that he has he can buy the presidency and rule the world with an iron fist. He thinks if he happens to buy the presidency or win the presidency he can bully other counties around the world because of his name and money.

But Mr. Trump I don’t think you know what you are talking about. Because on the contrary you don’t know anything about how foreign policy works either. During the third debate you were asked by a moderator what you would do if you become the president of the united states of America about the mid east crisis and how you would handle the terrorists group called ISIS. And Mr. Trump your answers were short and dumb founded. It was as though you didn’t know what the hell you were talking about. And you really don’t know anything about foreign policy. The proof is in the damn pudding, Donald!

During last weeks terrorist attacks in Paris, France you brought up the gun control laws for France again stating that they need better gun control laws. Although your poll numbers are higher this week amidst the terror attacks on Paris, France last week. And the shift to foreign policy now I don’t think you should qualify for the presidency either because of your little known knowledge on foreign policy.

And frankly I don’t think you will win the presidency in 2016, the winner will be Hillary Clinton hands down! I don’t think she deserves it either because of the classified emails that she sent through her home server, sorry, but I still won’t vote for you Donald Trump.

I had hoped for Vice President Joe Biden to run for president, but he decided not to run. And then came Bernie Sanders and I  started to get on his bandwagon, because I liked what he was saying about the issues. He was talking about giving free tuition for college students and raises the pay rate to $15. And also helping to make clean energy for America and the World. And that’s some of the reasons that I got on his bandwagon.

And then there’s Hillary Clinton and I guest you know all about her already. But more scandals had surfaced like her email server problem, Bengazi and the CGI problem. And the republicans were all over it, they kept talking about her problem all year long and still talking about them today.

But that didn’t deter the democrats from voting for her in the democratic primaries. They came out in full force for her in the democratic primaries and has probably led her to the democratic nomination for 2016. But no matter what I still think that these problems are serious especially if the FBI is investigating the case about her email server. Since Bernie Sanders can’t win the democratic nomination I will have to vote for Hillary Clinton, because I certainly won’t vote for Donald Trump.

Yep, I probably would have to vote for Hillary Clinton to be the new president of the United States of America. But I sure will be shaking in my boots though!

Four Ways To Save Money By Taking Better Care Of Yourself

healthy eating

Being unhealthy can be costly. The cost of a visit to the doctor is expensive, then when you calculate in the cost to get there, the price of medications, and all of the other costs of medical conditions, it can get really out of hand. So how can you save money on medical costs?

It’s actually pretty simple. Take care of yourself. Know your medical history, know what your healthy weight is, and know how much you should be eating and exercising, and follow it.

Remember The Importance Of Early Detection

One way to spend less on medical bills is to get regular checkups with your family doctor. Early detection is the best way to fight illnesses, and even cancer. Yes, you’ll be spending money on your appointments, but you could very likely be cutting back on future medical costs.

Get Some Physical Activity

It doesn’t cost you a thing to exercise, you can do it right at home, or out on the street, no gym membership needed. You need to make sure that you are getting a half an hour of exercise a day, and more if you spend most of your time during the day sitting.

It’s pretty easy to add in some extra steps every day by taking the stairs and walking more wherever you go. Switch up your daily workouts, from strength training to cardio, and yoga to walking, jogging, or running.

Eat The Right Foods

What you put into your body determines the health of your entire system. If you are deficient in a vitamin it can cause all sorts of issues. Make sure you are eating a well-rounded diet that contains plenty of fruits and vegetables. It really helps to follow the MyPlate food suggestions from the USDA.

That also means cutting back of junk food and fast food. Too much sugar and too much salt can have bad effects on your system, and can lead to higher risk of illnesses like diabetes, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure. Making wise food choices will help you spend less time sick and visiting the doctor!

Drop Those Bad Habits

Your bad habits, like smoking and drinking, cost you money just to buy the next pack or next bottle. However, both of these things can mess with your body and may lead to more time off from work, as well as illness like lung cancer and liver disease.

Get help quitting, and even if it’s difficult never stop quitting. Just a few years off cigarettes and you lower your risk of getting cancer. Every drink of alcohol affects your liver in a bad way.

By being healthier you will miss less days of work, you will spend less time visiting the doctor, and you will even extend your life, so you’ll have more time to spend all of that money you’ve saved.

Overcoming the Challenges of Managing a Small Business – Sherry B. Jordan

Over 65 million small businesses start up annually in the United States, and only half will make it for 5 years. What makes the 50% who survive successful?

Small business consultant and expert Sherry B. Jordan knows. For 15 years she’s been developing and deploying strategies to help small business owners move from owning a small business to living a lifestyle they love while making a living. Her new book, Plan It! Do It! Love It! Be Outrageously Successful Living the Small Business Lifestyle, captures and shares an arsenal of strategic advice on how to plan and execute a successful business strategy without sacrificing joy and fulfillment of a rich personal life. Sherry offers a roadmap through the maze of business ownership.

“Your life and your business must be in sync for both to be satisfying and successful,” she says.

Although it can be challenging to feel satisfied or fulfilled in the midst of demands on time, energy, and commitment, there are strategies that contribute to business and personal satisfaction. We can live an outrageously successful small business lifestyle if we do the following:

.     Know what you want from small business ownership. Be clear on what benefits you hope to gain — flexibility, control, money, follow your “calling”, feed your passion.  Be clear on what role you want it to play in your life and schedule.

·         Winging it does not work, so take time to plan. Planning does not have to be complicated with this simple 6 Step Planning™ system that Jordan shares:

1.      Design the Vision. Outline what you want to do, be, or have by a target date you select.

2.      Examine and Assess. Identify what you have to work with to build toward your vision.

3.      Set Measurements. Select the metrics. These measurements become your “report card” for plan progress.

4.      Select Strategy. Select five to ten areas of focus that will bring the greatest success. They are the vehicles to deliver your vision.

5.      Assign Action. Identify a series of actions and assign deadlines and responsible parties.

6.      Do It! Get to work.

·         Align the plan with your life dreams, values, and priorities.

·         Be accountable to the plan. Be committed to the dates, deadlines, and actions.

·         Do what you do best — always. Delegate or outsource the rest.

Here are a few more of the many recommendations she presents to help people achieve small business bliss:

Success takes time. It is rare for a business to be profitable in the first year. Reaching revenue, profit, business development, personal income and other goals typically takes between 3-5 years.  Have a safety net and back-up plan to survive the long term.

You are a factor in your business success.  Small business owners can be more successful if they consider how their own behavior and actions contribute to or detract from achieving business success.  The most crucial choices people make are often some of the simplest. It’s easy to get caught up and overwhelmed.

Boundaries are critical to a balance between work and life.  You are the only person that can set boundaries for the way you work and the way you live. This includes boundaries with employees, vendors, and clients, as well as personal boundaries, which includes your time, money and investments.   If they aren’t clear, your business may steal the joy out of your life or your life might steal the performance of your business.

Know when you need help and ask for it.  It is not easy to relinquish control, but it is critical that you be willing to ask for help and accept it – personally and professionally. Your ability to hire staff, delegate and outsource can help you reach your professional and your personal goals much quicker.

Surrounding yourself with the right people and resources – in work and in life – makes everything easier. Every business owner has a need for resources and support. Not just anyone will do. You must set the criteria for the right team to help build your business, develop professionally, and inspire you to create more than you ever dreamed possible.

Attitude is free and powerful. Focus on creating and maintaining the right attitude – optimism, mindfulness, respect for self, and respect for others. You and you alone control your attitude. When you make the positive choice your outcome is higher productivity, better business results, and a more joyful life.

Trust your Inner Voice. Your inner voice will keep you out of danger and help you to avoid pain. It will help you sort out the differences between work and life.

Plan It! Do It! Love It!
