QUOTE : ” Nothing was more distant from their intentions than attack and war , not them , but their enemies called in the bloodshed and destruction . They were the first , who not for the wealth and estates , not for the feel of the power , but to defend the highest asset for all humanity -the right for self governing and freedom to live by there own conscience , had no other choice , than to arm themselfs and take on the terrible , long fight against all their enemies , whom did not want anything less , than a total destruction for them , and to the whole worlds’ surprise , victoriously ended it..” Frantisek Palacky / 19th century historian , about 15th century protestant movement in Bohemia /Czech
Now , I am not a Hussita and I hate any kind of violence , my weapons always were my voice and the words , I had spoken against communism in my “old” country at the times , when you could go to jail just for reading the wrong book . I got out of the politics a long time ago and went to live here in America , the only country , where if you really want and you are determined enough , you can still achieve your dream . That’s what I had been doing , achieving dreams , a lot of them , against all the odds and everytime I hit an obstacle or challenge , I thought I must be doing something wrong . Yeah , I had made mistakes on the way , everybody makes some and all you can do is to learn from them , but lately , as more business I do , more dealings with all kinds of institutions , I am beginning to see , what’s really wrong…..
This time , I don’t think it is the government, abusing power, as much as is the danger of Stupidity. In society , where one single wrong or fabricated information punched in a computer system by some stupid , useless , pencil & button pushing moron and idiot , can literally destroy peoples dreams , I would like to come out of my “shell” and start exposing that stuff not only for myself , but also for all those small business owners , “little old ladies” even naive idealists , who could very well be the “victims” of this and don’t have the courage , means , or just the “stubborness” to fight back .
When somebody either unwillingly , by mistake , or worse , intentionally post a wrong info on your business credit , he literally has the power to destroy your future . Yes , we , the entrepreneurs know , that we need to monitor our credit , but there is not only one bureau to monitor and even if we do “catch” some mistake , it takes time to fight to remove it , and time is the number one valuable asset in an entrepreneurs’ life.
There is a custom , that when you criticize , you should also have a solution to offer . Maybe I do. Let’s make the politics , the legislators do their job and come up with a Bill ( Law) on behalf of the millions small business owners and make the “reporters” not only able to report , but also be criminally responsible for any damage , they cause by reporting the “wrong” info . Let’s make the business credit bureaus be responsible for collecting wrong info and not double checking that stuff . Last time I checked , a person in America is supposed to be presumed innocent until proven guilty . In many cases , a persons small business is all what he lives for , his dream .
I had made many of my dreams come true during my life here , I could be just as happy , sitting at home and watching my 5 years old son play with his dog , but there are a lot of those , who are just making the first shot for their dream , so let’s take the challenge , make a difference and maybe help , just a little bit to those , who are feeling discouraged , hopeless or frustrated after going through similar situations . My private “war” is not private anymore , right now I am waiting for a report on my company from yet another credit agency , because those idiots in “WellFare Bank” could not find any reasonable reason for not approving my line and came up with some fabricated “shit” . This time , I will not only dispute it , I will take as long as it takes , get to the bottom of this and make sure , that whoever is responsible for that , it will be the last “heroic” deed he acomplished in his misserable career .
Words hopeless , discouraged & frustrated , somehow does not exists in my dictionary , throwing “shit” in a form of incorrect info on peoples’ credit and think you guys can get away with it , is not only wrong , but really, really.. Stupid .
I am a very tolerant person with a little “twist” : I have Zero Tolerance for Stupidity!!!
Maybe I am still being a Fool , but when I see wrongdoing , I just can’t shut up……We’ll see ..
