Honey Maid Illuminates A Serious Issue Beyond Love...

Apr 7, 2014

It is great to see large companies like Honey Maid understanding the core concepts of Martin Luther King, Jr, Mahatma Gandhi and many luminaries from our history. The most effective way to overcome HATE is not with HATE, but with LOVE. From the perspective of Respectful Confrontation, using war as a means to peace, using brute force to overcome bullying, claiming that you are right...

Messy, messy…

Note: All posts are written with the intention of the Respectful Confrontation Polarity Antidote Philosophy. Everyone is talking about the huge debt this country has and sitting and watching millions and millions of dollars wasted on this campaign. The candidates are all pandering themselves; when they are told to jump, they jump. Why? To win those precious votes from those who...
