A while ago I had a friend say someone had referred to me as "that guy Joe is just making up his own rules". Now do admit that I would like to change a lot of the rules that our society lives under right now. All working people should be protected by unbreakable rules stating that they should to be able to earn a decent living wage and have health benefits for their family. All working people who have labored all their lives deserve rules that they should be taken care of after retirement. I believe any organization that makes rules that they should be on their own are a cancer in our world. The rules that I make and follow help the people I represent as well as every working man or women that I have not the pleasure of serving yet.
I will happily continue "making up my own rules" because as another wise friend once told me "always do what you know is right ".
