I love Claire Wolfe. She can be such a joy to read. Well it seems that Allen Hacker isn't the only thorn in the side of WTP lately. But its not like they have it out for them either. They are just holding them accountable in the public forum, which is proper since these are public issues. When integrity is on the line don't you think the goal should be resolution? Make a phone call, get it straightend out, clear your name. We are in this together, lets act like it. It comes down to the fact that we all screw up, what sets us apart is how we deal with our screw up. Are we unresponsive?

WTP as an organization is trying to sell principles of freedom, to free the minds of business owners. People who own a business and actually turn enough of a profit to hire employees tend to not put up with crap. They want to be able to rely on you to keep your promises. If agree to sell him 1000 widgets delivered on Tuesday only to discover that you can no longer fulfill the order, he will cease to do business with you. He cannot afford to do business with people who don't follow through, plain and simple.

Now tell an employer that he should not follow the advice of his accountant and stop witholding payroll taxes from employees. You need to be above reproach, all your ducks in a row just to get his attention. Why should he risk his business and a possible tangle with the IRS for your theory.

My point in all this is to say that WTP has bigger fish to fry. Try to stay above the fray. Listen to criticism and apply it. Or am I giving you a bad rap? Let me know if I am, it wouldn't be the first time I was wrong.
