    Truth Without Filters. Muslims Migrants in Europe. Socialism vs Capitalism.

    in Current Events

    John and Doug delve into the mess Europe is in by letting imigrant Muslims into their country without vetting. The leaders are not leading and the inmates are running the asylum! Hour two, they get into this love fest between young people and Bernie Sanders. Socialism vs Capitalism. Why the Democrats Presidential canidates in America are one in the same, leaving most Democrats to hold their nose pulling the lever OR maybe, this is where the Republicans will gain those "Reagan Democrats" that just can not vote for Socialism or a criminal. The Republicans really have choice, including two LEGAL immigrants running for President. They also have two good canidates that are Conservative. The young people getting most of their stuff for "free" are just as content to keep recieving "free" stuff and they think Bernie can deliver. Either way, John and Doug will tell it like it is, explaining why it is NOT a good idea to allow Muslim Immigrants into the US without triple vetting and why we should not persue Socialism at all.

    John Carver Show - Conscious Capitalism (Ryan McShane)

    in Self Help

    Recently I interviewed Ryan McShane who has helped me tremendously.  Ryan opened my eyes to looking at how you can impact your workplace and your home.  Some of what he talks about is:


    There are four principles of Conscious Capitalism.


    1. Conscious leadership


    Organizations mirror the actions and personality of the individual at the top. This is the kind of person people want to follow. The authentic, open person. Conscious Leaders are the ones who inspire loyalty and consistent high performance in their teams.


    2. Stakeholder orientation


    Conscious leaders know the importance of taking into account all of their stakeholders. You’re never going to become a premium brand by only focusing on the shareholders. The really important factors for long-term business success are the employees and customers, and often the vendors and community as well. Take care of them and they will take care of you.


    3. Conscious culture


    A values-based culture is one that is intentional about how people act and perform. When a culture is not defined and enforced, your people aren’t all moving in the same direction.

    4. Higher purpose


    Finally, the company should be in business to do more than just make money. Great leaders realize that in order to become successful over the long term, you must provide true value. That comes from passionate people getting inspired about their work. How inspiring is your company’s purpose? For example, would you want to work for a company whose mission it is to “deliver maximum value to the shareholders”?


    At the end of our talk Ryan shares how he might be able to help YOU in your career and home life

    Sox, Globe & Capitalism Gone Stupid

    in Politics Progressive

    Huge disadvantages of the fabulously wealthy include no one around with the guts and wit to say, "You're being stupid!" Another, more intractable one is the delusion if you are rich you must be brilliant...in everything.


    Over the past decade or so, John Henry has pushed his The Boston Globe and Red Sox to the edge of ruin and seems to have no sense of that. He is the ugly side of capitalism, or one of the ugly sides. He jacked up ballpark/ticket prices to the highest in basebaqll. Likewise, he is huge in expeneive newspaper paywalls and has made both home delivery and online Globe prices the highest in the nation, higher even than papers like the Wall Street Journal and Financial Times. Those two at least give you info to earn you money back and more. The Globe simply relies on its almost monopoly status (there is an asthenic Murdoch-owned tabloid for a weak competitor.)


    This past week, Henry blew it again. He's already pared the writing/reporting staff to the nub. Now he went after the delivery contractor, switching to a cheaper vendor. That makes perfect capitalistic sense; bottom line, don't you know. The problem is that the new contractor has already failed elsewhere and certainly plonked here.


    Let us consider Henry's empire and whether the delusional rich can ever objectively judge their decisions. I suspect you already know my conclusion.

    in Politics

    Hosted by Marti Oakley


    Whistleblowers! is brought to you in coordination with Marcel Reid and the Whistleblowers Summit, July 28,29,30, 2016 in Washington D.C.


    Guest: Jonas Devurne, former Health and Human Services/ Social Services worker in Florida.  Jonas will be discussing the fracturing of these systems under the Jeb Bush governorship, and the inevitable privatizing of services that Republicans are so fond of.  While regaling the public with the supposed benefits of privatization, Bush nor anyone else mentioned that taxpayers would still be financing these systems only now, instead of funds going to help families or children, funds would go to friends and other special interests in a grand system of crony capitalism,. 


    One group who paid the price for this rigged system were the children in foster care.  Funds that shoulad have gone towards helping deliquecy and dependency programs (foster care) were and are now going to private individuals for "managing" the system. 


    Dark money politics....the diversion of funding to special interests is done in plain sight.
