The First Thanksgiving, painted by Jean Leon G...

Happy Thanksgiving

Thank you to all of you who trust us to represent you through the tough times in your life.  We are thankful for the trust you place in us and for the opportunity to represent you.  We will use this season as a rededication to you, our clients.

We are thankful for the notes of thanks we receive from past clients and we are thankful for all of you who tell a trusted friend that we can help them.  We are thankful for the kind words when we are frustrated and the shared laughs when the absurdity of the world overwhelms us.  We are thankful for your twitter follows, Facebook likes and google pluses.   We are thankful for you calls, your expectations and your confidence in us.  So today, we raise a toast to you… our clients.  Happy Thanksgiving!

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.

Thanksgiving Day Proclamation, 1963 — John F. Kennedy

 

 

 

 

 

 

It Is Election Day – Get Out And Vote!

00Holiday MessagesTags: , ,

Today is election day! Get out there and let your voice be heard. So many of the things we talk about on this page can change.

  • traffic cameras,
  • a good Ohio Supreme Court
  • marijuana reform,
  • ending the drug war,
  • grand jury reform,
  • front license plates,
  • good judges,
  • racial justice,
  • police oversight,
  • mandatory sentences,
  • good appellate courts,
  • policing for profit,
  • prison reform,

election day“If you are bored and disgusted by politics and don’t bother to vote, you are in effect voting for the entrenched Establishments of the two major parties, who please rest assured are not dumb, and who are keenly aware that it is in their interests to keep you disgusted and bored and cynical and to give you every possible reason to stay at home doing one-hitters and watching MTV on primary day. By all means stay home if you want, but don’t bullshit yourself that you’re not voting. In reality, there is no such thing as not voting: you either vote by voting, or you vote by staying home and tacitly doubling the value of some Diehard’s vote.”
— David Foster Wallace (Up, Simba!)

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy.”
— Elmer T Peterson

“Democracy cannot succeed unless those who express their choice are prepared to choose wisely. The real safeguard of democracy, therefore, is education.”
— Franklin D. Roosevelt

“As societies grow decadent, the language grows decadent, too. Words are used to disguise, not to illuminate, action: you liberate a city by destroying it. Words are to confuse, so that at election time people will solemnly vote against their own interests.”
— Gore Vidal

“THE WORLD IS increasingly designed to depress us. Happiness isn’t very good for the economy. If we were happy with what we had, why would we need more? How do you sell an anti-ageing moisturiser? You make someone worry about ageing. How do you get people to vote for a political party? You make them worry about immigration. How do you get them to buy insurance? By making them worry about everything. How do you get them to have plastic surgery? By highlighting their physical flaws. How do you get them to watch a TV show? By making them worry about missing out. How do you get them to buy a new smartphone? By making them feel like they are being left behind. To be calm becomes a kind of revolutionary act. To be happy with your own non-upgraded existence. To be comfortable with our messy, human selves, would not be good for business.”
— Matt Haig (Reasons to Stay Alive)

Election Day! I do not give a hoot who you vote for. If you care about the world… VOTE!

 

Happy Halloween From All Of Us At Dayton DUI

Happy Halloween from all of us at Dayton DUI

Dayton DUI Halloween“I think if human beings had genuine courage, they’d wear their costumes every day of the year, not just on Halloween. Wouldn’t life be more interesting that way? And now that I think about it, why the heck don’t they? Who made the rule that everybody has to dress like sheep 364 days of the year? Think of all the people you’d meet if they were in costume every day. People would be so much easier to talk to – like talking to dogs. ”
― Douglas Coupland, The Gum Thief

Happy Labor Day from Dayton DUI

Happy Labor Day from Dayton DUI! 

Dayton DUIDayton DUI will be closed in honor of America’s workers. If you need to reach me, call my 24 hour number at (937) 776-2671.

Labor day means a great deal to me. My father started out in the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen which became the United Transportation Union.  My Mom was a proud member of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME).   Without the good wages and benefits provided by their shared sacrifice, I could never have gone to college.  We had a placard in our house given to my dad by his union. It read,“If any man tells you he loves America, yet hates labor, he is a liar. If any man tells you he trusts America, yet fears labor, he is a fool.”

All of us at Dayton DUI salute America’s hard-working men and women and join in our shared hopes that all who seek work can find a meaningful way to build the American Dream.

Happy Labor Day!
