The Bananization of the US Continues

Corruption, pay to play, demeaning treatment of women, which is worse? Are they the traits of a potential leader of the greatest nation on earth? A writer of screenplays could not have written a more unbelievable plot than this year’s elections in the US. The circumstances may be good for the sellers of anti-depressants but the entire process represents a bad example for the citizens of our country. As discussed in my newly released 7th book, We Got Mojo! success needs to begin with values and certainly there is every appearance that those wanting to become our top elected officials have different perspectives.

Values do matter. Kofi Anan, the former Secretary General of the United Nations in a eulogy after the death of Nelson Mandela succinctly said in reference to Mr. Mandela that “by showing us that the path to freedom and human dignity lies in love, wisdom, and compassion for one another Nelson Mandela stands as an inspiration for us all.” Well maybe our leaders need to practice the three keys to fine tuning your values:

  • Love one another;
  • Be wise making decisions that respect the betterment of freedom and human dignity; and
  • Exercise compassion to the rest of humanity.

Read more about what we think about values in our book “WE GOT MOJO!” now available in Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other booksellers. Learn more about it and even purchase the book at
