This I Believe

These things, I believe.

I believe in faith, family, flag, and fortune made through honest, free enterprise.

Everything else is details and commentary.

I believe that the truth well told is powerful, and that the truth combined with the proper action will set people free.

Everything else is details and commentary.


Ignorance is widespread. Ignorance is costly. Prejudice – and preconceived, misconceived notions – are also costly.

Everything else is details and commentary.

The way to cure costly ignorance is with the truth well told, combined with the proper leadership, and encouraging reasons to act.

Everything else is details and commentary.

The Truth has Consequences. Ignorance has Consequences. Falsehood and Error have Consequences. Apathy, false and inappropriate actions have Consequences.

Our industry is capable of doing much more – tens of billions of dollars more annually – than our modest $5.3 billion a year in new manufactured home sales our industry currently produces.

Everything else is details and commentary.

If the manufactured home industry by and large keeps doing the same things, the same way, why should we be surprised when the same types of results occur?

You don’t solve problems by ignoring them, or by sweeping them under the rug. People of integrity can admit, learn and grow from their mistakes. Those who lack integrity, often want to hide, deny, distract or detract others, hoping to obscure their errors.

Smoke and mirrors only work so long. Once the smoke clears, and the mirrors are spotted or broken, the illusions are revealed.

Everything else is details and commentary.

Stating the Obvious can bring Clarity to an Issue.
