What We Have Here Is A Failure To Communicate

The results of this past election proved once again that the Democrats had a golden opportunity to capitalize on the failings of the Trump Presidency but, fell short of a nation wide mandate. A mandate to seize the gauntlet of the progressive movement that Senator Sanders through down a little over four years ago. The opportunities were there from the very beginning even before this pandemic struck. In their failing to educate the public of the consequences of continued Congressional gridlock, conservatism, and what National Economic Reform’s Ten Articles of Confederation would do led to the results that are playing out today.. More Congressional gridlock, more conservatism and more suffering of millions of Americans are the direct consequences of the Democrats failure to communicate and educate the public. Educate the public that a progressive agenda is necessary to pull the United States out of this Pandemic, and restore this nations health and vitality.

It was the DNC’s intent in this election to only focus on the Trump Administration. They failed to grasp the urgency of the times. They also failed to communicate with the public about the dire conditions millions have been and still are facing even before the Pandemic. The billions of dollars funneled into campaign coffers should have been used to educate the voting public that creating a unified coalition would bring sweeping reforms that are so desperately needed. The reality of what transpired in a year and a half of political campaigning those billions of dollars only created more animosity and division polarizing one extreme over another.

One can remember back in 1992 Ross Perot used his own funds to go on national TV to educate the public on the dire ramifications of not addressing our national debt. That same approach should have been used during this election cycle. By using the medium of television to communicate and educate the public is the most effective way in communicating and educating the public. Had the Biden campaign and the DNC used their resources in this way the results we ae seeing today would have not created the potential for more gridlock in our government. The opportunity was there to educate the public of safety protocols during the siege of this pandemic and how National Economic Reform’s Ten Articles of Confederation provides the necessary progressive reforms that will propel the United States out of the abyss of debt and restore our economy. Restoring our economy so that every American will have the means and the availability of financial and economic security.

The failure of the Democratic party since 2016 has been recruiting a Presidential Candidate who many felt was questionable and more conservative signals that the results of today has not met with the desired results the Democratic party wanted. Then again? By not fully communicating and not educating the public on the merits of a unified progressive platform has left the United States transfixed in our greatest divides since the Civil War. This writers support of Senator Bernie Sanders is well documented. Since 2015 he has laid the groundwork for progressive reforms. He also has the foundations on which these reforms can deliver the goods as they say. But, what did the DNC do, they purposely went out of their way to engineer a candidate who was more in tune with the status-quo of the DNC. They failed to communicate to the public in educating all of us on the ways our lives would be better served with a progressive agenda that was the benchmark of Senators Sanders Presidential campaign and his Our Revolution movement. And this is way there is still really no progress in creating a less toxic environment in Washington and around the country.

Just How Valuable Is Business Golf to Businesses?

We have all heard the stories about golf and business, and how business golf can be the difference between success and failure for many business owners.We have all seen the successful business people on the golf course during the day, and wondered whether it is their success in business that puts them on the course, or their time on the course that contributes to their success!However, you probably also wonder just how much of those sayings and statistics are fact, and how much is an urban legend. The good news is, thanks to some very clever people at the Stanford Research Institute in the USA, it is now possible to put a real financial value to the game of golf.So How Much is Business Golf Worth?According to the researchers at Stanford (one of the most prominent colleges in the US), during 2005, golf contributed an astronomical $195 billion to the US economy, both directly and indirectly.That is made up of contributions from the golf industry itself, as well as salaries, wages and other indirect earnings related to golf. It does not, however, measure just how much business is done on the course, but it is a very good indicator of just how pivotal golf is to the US business economy!The Spin OffSince the astronomical figure that the researchers have come up with is only for earnings directly related to the golf industry, and since those figures are already over five years old, it is easy to see that the value of business golf is probably much, much higher than that!In fact, if every dollar spent on golf in the US leads to just a one dollar return (and that’s unlikely, given the size of the deals that go down on golf courses every day) then businesses in the US are doing business to the tune of nearly $200 billion on the course every year!Business Golf Is an InvestmentWhen you look at figures like this, it is easy to see that business golf is not simply something that gets you out of the office. It is a strategic, carefully planned investment in your business, and your company’s potential profits.If you approach business golf in that way, then it can be one of the most valuable marketing tools in your business arsenal. Simply asking yourself, before every invitation or game, what the return on your investment will be, in terms of networking, relationship building and potential deals, should be enough to determine whether each game is worth your time.Whatever your feeling about business golf, it’s very hard to deny that in the world’s largest economy, nearly $200 billion dollars is generated every year by the golf industry. It is entirely likely that many times that is generated every year by deals that come about as a result of business golf.It is clear, however, that business golf is here to stay, and that by making the most of the opportunities it presents, you too can boost your business, and your profits, and become a part of that huge, global money-spinning machine!
