A good name is rather to be chosen over great riches

Now by now we all should be used to the too many expensive liars we do daily encounter in governments, news media, police and even in Churches.. the lying spin doctors are now too often trying to justify their pay and they do lie to us by telling us all that they are all doing a good job in serving us, in looking after all of our good welfare, even while the rich get richer and the poor people get poorer in Canada now too, but still visibly we can clearly see this is not so and real justice too often is an expensive undertaking, a mockery.. it now rarely happens.. which reminds me how is the Quebec government and federal government responding to all of my rightful letters of complaint to them on behalf of us all.. slowly.. very very slowly?

1 Cor 4:2 Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.

(Mat 18:23 KJV) Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants.

Luke 16:1 And he said also unto his disciples, There was a certain rich man, which had a steward; and the same was accused unto him that he had wasted his goods. :2 And he called him, and said unto him, How is it that I hear this of thee? give an account of thy stewardship; for thou mayest be no longer steward.

Rom 14:12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.

What all politicians should know..

A good name is worth more over any amount of silver or Gold you can acquire too. 
.
(Prov 22:1 KJV)  A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.
 .
(Eccl 7:1 KJV)  A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one’s birth
.
(Isa 26:10 KJV)  Let favour be showed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the LORD.
.
Eccl 7:17 KJV)  Be not over much wicked, neither be thou foolish: why shouldest thou die before thy time?
 .
(Lam 2:14 KJV)  Thy prophets have seen vain and foolish things for thee: and they have not discovered thine iniquity, to turn away thy captivity; but have seen for thee false burdens and causes of banishment.
(Eccl 7:8 KJV)  Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.
 .
(Eccl 7:9 KJV)  Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools.
.
(Eccl 5:15 KJV)  As he came forth of his mother’s womb, naked shall he return to go as he came, and shall take nothing of his labour, which he may carry away in his hand.
.
(Eccl 12:13 KJV)  Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. 
.
(1 Tim 6:9 KJV)  But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. 9  But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. 10  For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 11  But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness
.
Here also is what I know for sure, the older the person is the more extreme, more severe, the more difficult the punishment has  to be on them to cause them to personally to change in their own  negative ways, for they are too set in them now too.   And most bad persons  employ false denial techniques that build more walls between them and others.

We all must take any personal addiction seriously because 25% of North Americans die as a result of substance abuse. The average alcoholic dies twenty-six years earlier than he or she would otherwise. Drug users, alcoholics, cheaters, abusers, adulterers affect negatively continually too the lives of at least six others. Establish Boundaries, Set Limits, Set detachement.  One example of setting a boundary is telling a close friend, aloved one  that you prefer they not be around you if they are smoking,  drunk or high. Notice that it is specific deamnd, and you have to sit down and communicate this type of request explicitly with that someone. Setting a boundary like this is difficult because there is this tendency to hurt other’s feelings. But that is part of what is keeping you ineffective– your caring more about this person’s feelings than your own personal well being. Setting boundaries is about putting your own personal well being and even that of others first, and letting that be a guiding example of how to live. You know you are setting effective boundaries when you are taking back control of your own life firstly and starting to regain your own sanity–instead of being all wrapped up in the problems of a struggling smoker, rebel, drug addict or alcoholic.
.
True happiness cannot be in reality achieved without having a continual, personal relationship with Jesus here on earth and us continually knowing and following solely his will of our life too, instead of Idols. Why is Jesus God jealous of …idols before us? well it means he is envious for our own good.. he strives for all things to be our good… What idols? what ever replaces God is an idol.. what ever you falsely worship as substitute for God. And it can be drugs, booze, sex, or your wife, son , daughter, a persons, car, self, even your church, your pastor, your denomination, your own doctrines, beliefs, your culture, nationality … for we all had or have a god shaped vacuum in our life.. but filling it with extremes or false substitutes, junk will never be acceptable to God. Never. If you still do have a God shaped vacuum that is unfilled, then no other things, no relationships or careers, goals, next will satisfy you, not even any personal, social, community relationships, acts. 
.

Follow the money trail, one of the oldest rule in effective journalism. THE RICH GET RICHER AND WHY? Many Church members continue to tend to take a back seat to the district church superintendent. When someone is paid mostly by DONATIONS, or taxpayer’s they REALLY need to keep in mind who they work for. Massive cutbacks and budget cuts are costing many persons pay CUTS or their jobs, but in the bad churches too often superintendents continue to allow their pastors to benefit from high pay and perks. Many Church members continue to tend to take a back seat to the district church superintendent. This same approach, abuse is too common not only in the bad churches, but now also in the education, medical fields, politics, civil and public services.



this is what we pay taxes for ? lousy governmental service now too

City hall managers, adminstrators, others guilty of tax evasion

 

THE FISH STINKS FROM THE HEAD.  It really is so  is hard to believe that when the ordinary citizen can easily see it now, perceive the facts, truth  that it was not a  deliberate act, a deliberate oversight too, in this modern age of competent managers, that  the  so called professionals now too,  the same managers who now are supposedly smart , intelligent to run the finances,  administration, public servants at the largest city in Canada, that they now were also so ignorant in that  they were committing major tax evasion for years too. Sounds more like a deliberate criminal act that is being carried on in other places, churches, police, other GOVERNMENTAL OFFICES included.. and what they will all get a slap on the wrist for it too? Notice the media spin on the crimes, story now too.. ALL JUST AS BAD AS THE QUEBEC POLITICS, GOVERNMENT.. Unacceptable pretentious justice too. EXCELLENCE WELCOMES SCRUTINY. 
 
Councillors to surrender tax-free TTC passes Globe and Mail – A tax-free TTC ride is over for city councillors. The Toronto Transit Commission has asked all 44 councillors and the mayor to immediately return their 2010 Metropasses to appease the Canada Revenue Agency, which concluded earlier this year that free transit trips and a slew of other perks count as taxable benefits. Councillors’ free passes to the Toronto Zoo, the Sony Centre and city-owned golf courses could soon be treated the same way. Excluded was the councillors’ free access to city-owned Green P lots. etc… 
 

Toronto councillors lose tax-free TTC passes CTV.ca Following a Canada Revenue Agency audit of the City of Toronto, the Toronto Transit Commission has asked all city councillors and the mayor to return their tax-free complimentary 2010 Metro passes.  The announcement comes after the CRA concluded earlier this year that free transit rides and other perks count as taxable benefits. Councillors choosing to keep the free Metropass will be required to pay taxes on the $1,188 benefit.

Councillors ordered to return free transit passes Toronto Star “It took 10 years but, at the end of the day, councillors will have to pay to get on the bus like everyone else,” Ford said.

 Just cause so many others still do it. cheat, lie, steal it all  does not make it right.

The Toronto Transit Commission is expected to have a record year for ridership,  dues also to 25 cent fare increase introduced at the beginning of the year, leading to an estimated $20 million surplus. So how do they use it to reduce the price of fares for the citizens? or they continue to give expensive, lavish perks, freebies to city hall managers?
 
Meanwhile the  top brass at the Toronto Transit Commission yesterday  confessed openly to the news reporter  what Transit riders already know: Its trains and buses are overcrowded and its subway stations are dirty and confusing. Their Spin doctors are promising changes here now. The Toronto Transit Commission will undo the service cuts it made to save cash in 2010 and spring for the cost of the 42 new station managers to improve customer service on subways. TTC will look at rehiring the 32 drivers it cut in March, and also cancelling a further cut of 32 drivers that had been planned for September. Transit fare savings? Dream on. or just more Empire building.  Which reminds me what about all of those managers still too that too often do take still home the office computer equipment, software and so  are they also not still guilty of thet, tax evasions too.
 
Why do most of the politicians fear all disclosures now?  Jesus himself had said that of she or he that cannot be trusted to handle the small money matters they now next cannot be trusted to handle the big ones too.   Spending scandals have now rocked governments in Canada and continually too. In February, Nova Scotia’s auditor general concluded inappropriate claims were made by some politicians for personal items, including almost $8,000 spent on a generator that was installed in a politician’s home. Reports by Newfoundland and Labrador’s auditor general led to criminal charges against a former legislature employee and four former politicians who received sentences ranging from 15 months to two years. How can any of the Ministers be trusted to supervise others, resources when they still really cannot be trusted and do need to be supervised themselves, held accountiable.
 
 
“”it is inconceivable that in a political era in which voters demand accountability, federal politicians can forever fend off the demand to reveal their expenses. “I think it’s a political minefield for them not to allow the auditor general in,” said Ken Dye, Canada’s auditor general from 1981 to 1991. “You wonder why they’re resisting. What are they trying to hide? I think that in a time of accountability I have no trouble at all having the country’s auditor general examine any bit of public money.” You’d think the same would hold true for a governing Conservative party that came to office in 2006 on a platform of transparency and accountability, or the three opposition parties who make daily denunciations about Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s penchant of secrecy. Instead, all are complicit in upholding the culture of hidden receipts in Ottawa, one of just a few tranches of taxpayer money that is shielded from public audit. There also needs to be serious discussion about the terms of the probe the auditor general wants to conduct, he said. Fraser recently explained to a Senate Finance committee that what she envisions is a performance audit, which examines whether taxpayers have received value for the money spent by politicians, rather than a narrow double-check of Parliament’s balance sheet. Why, in an era of wedge politics where parties stake out the moral high ground if only to better thump their opponents, no one wants to be the first to come clean with their expenses is another enduring mystery of this matter. When the Star conducted an investigation into how MPs were spending their office budgets last year, the vast majority were unwilling to disclose how they spend their share of taxpayers’ money. ” http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/article/803425–auditor-battling-ottawa-s-culture-of-hidden-receipts?bn=1  
 
Ha ha ha So they now still all cannot cannot be trusted now not to lie on their expense account so can we trust them all still now even anywhere else? Of course not! It is no wonder it takes such a long time to get something done in Ottawa! The way a politician conducts his parliamentary business is clearly still, political and “murky,” with a lot of the money likley used for the political parties expenses and not for the legitimate citizen, or governing business expenses.

 PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY. MANAGERS MUST manage is such a simple truth, so axiomatic that it is hard to believe that so many people who are called managers – or call themselves managers – completely miss it. 

Too many managers participate in the blame game. They blame the government, their peers and subordinates, the marketplace, competition and some take it to the real extreme and blame God. Avoiding responsibility for personal behaviour in business is probably the most fundamental weakness that a manager can possess.

The best managers I know are the ones who hold themselves accountable, take responsibility for their behaviour and actions and hold their colleagues equally accountable for their behaviour. This characteristic is often the seminal reason for managerial success. But it is hard to practise. When practised, however, it is the most liberating and energising force a manager can possess. http://businessuitemagazine.wordpress.com/2010/04/17/managers-must-manage/
