Never Judge Others Unless & Until You Have Walked In Their Shoes ! ~ I relate it with the Value vs Price argument that we often debate and discuss in the Stock Selection Process

This is an interesting email I have received more than once…and I relate it with the Value vs Price argument that we often debate and discuss in the Stock Selection Process 

It just goes to show “Don’t judge someone unless and  until you have walked in their shoes.”


Question 1: Would you recommend that she have an abortion?

If you knew a woman  ~who was pregnant ~who had 8 kids already ~three who were deaf ~two who were blind ~one mentally retarded ~and she had syphilis

Read the next question before looking at the response for this one.

Question 2: Which of these candidates would be your choice?

It is time to elect a new world leader, and only your vote counts..Here are the facts about the three candidates.

Candidate A:

Associates with crooked politicians ~consults with astrologists ~ had two mistresses ~ chain smokes ~And drinks 8 to 10 martinis a day.

Candidate B:

He was kicked out of office twice ~Sleeps until noon ~Used opium in college ~drinks a quart of whiskey every evening.

Candidate C:

He is a decorated war hero ~and a vegetarian ~Doesn’t smoke though drinks an occasional beer ~ And never committed adultery.

Decide first … No peeking, and then scroll down
for the response.
Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Candidate B is Winston Churchill.

Candidate C is Adolph Hitler.

And, by the way, on your answer to the abortion question:

If you said YES, you just killed Beethoven !

Pretty interesting isn’t it?

Makes a person think before judging someone.

Nat Geo Wild ~ Awesome Answers to Animal Issues ~ Sea Lions in this Case

I would strongly recommend a daily dose of Nat Geo Wild ~ if you’re a Hathaway Cable customer it’s Channel 456 currrently

This morning I saw a fascinating serial ‘When Animals Behave Badly’

Sea Lions on Pier 39 in San Francisco Bay

Sea Lions ~ These huge sloppy but cute animals had simply chosen Pier 39 Marina in San Francisco Bay in USA to park themselves in great numbers from 1990 ~ they were a record 1700 at one time ~ disappeared suddenly for awhile only to return back in 2010 ~ barking,pushing,slumbering ~ simply taking over Pier 39!

Boat Owners were stressed out ~ the noise at night was getting to them ~ it was like living in a dog kennel said one ~ another stepped out for a breath of fresh air in the night from his boat only to step on a sea lion ! both yelled at each other ~ but both were scared !

So the vexed boat owners came out with some horrendous solutions to electrify the area or strew it with broken glass ! to electrocute and injure these lovely God’s Creatures ! ~ Cousteau Researchers even said they could send a Mechanised Shark,a natural predator, to be put in the Bay to scare off the sea lions !

What was wisely done was remarkable ! ~ Nothing !

Boat Owners were given  choice to park their Boats in another nearby Marina ~ and the sea lions who had made this their home of choice were left to their choice ! ~ They soon became a tourist attraction and hundreds came to see them in their hundreds ~ and that too at close range which would not have been possible out at sea !

Awesome Answer to An Animal Issue !
