I always speak honestly. Sarcasm, however, is something, gratefully, thoroughly ingrained in my personality.
I don't think I've hinted otherwise. You come across as a person who believes what he/she says. There is a time and place for sarcasm. If you are always sarcastic, it's difficult for people to see the honesty. Keep in mind also, that it is one thing to be sarcastic in person and a totally different thing to be sarcastic online where people don't see the facial expressions. A lot can be interpretted unintentionally.

Agreed! Although I cannot speak for him(?), I think Willo tries, very successfully, to make points to both sides of an argument in the same comment. It's hard to explain and, on occasion, I think "huh?" but, generally, I think we agree on issues. I really like Willo and enjoy the "reading between the lines"!

I've had good discussions with Will as well. Making point for btoh sides ona conversation complicates one's position. I've got thoughts for both sides. Try keeping them separate on individual posts. I suppose that in my mind, if I want to make a point, I make a point of being very direct. No room for interpretation when making a serious point.

Like I said, a time for serious, sarcasm, goofy and all. All the time, can be dangerous. A vvery smart person can easily be blown off because of excessive sarcasm, happiness, sadness, negativity, etc. Better to be direct. That being said, diirect is not "you f@@@ing idiot, get it thru ur brain".

Like I said, I have had good discussions with all of you guys and seriously appreciate the points where we agree, but also consider the areas where we disagree. I've learned a couple POVs that I hadn't completely considered. Thanks.

Not exactly true, JLORs been on the good side from time to time. Willow seemed to miss the point I was making. I don't believe in distribution of wealth. I think everyone should work hard for what they earn.
A very simple answer that many business owners do not understand. People tend to forget who makes their business work. Yes, the successful business owner had the insight and understanding to take a calculated riskthat paid off, but their employees helped them make the business successful. Show me a business where the owner is the most prized asset and I'll show you a broken business.
Back to your movie deal. I've not once meantionedor suggested that you were lying. If I believed you were lying, I'd come right out and say so. I don't speak in riddles or with sarcasm (sometimes when it is needed).
Warren Buffet or Donald Trump? Both men are very rich, Buffet more than Trump. Both guys worked hard to get to where they are at. None have spent their money foolishly. Both are smart business people. I don't know that either one gives their employees more than they deserve.
Unless your investors invested 5 dollars on this movie, they care about their roi, unless it's mom and dad. The story may be wonderful, but in the end it is about money. You could be the next Terminator. Low budget film turned smash hit. Good luck.
Other than the fact that the rich walmarts can afford to give a 1 dollar raise, reducing their profits by a couple billion, why is it good to raise the minimum wage?
I'll leave you with this thought ... 2 men see 100 dollars lying on the floor, one man thinks 100 dollars, the third man sees 1000 dollars ... So is the life of an entrepreneur ... Being able to see what is not their ...
With my movie it's not really distribution of wealth. The movie will only be as successful as the work people put into it. The actors sell the story, they make the "world" believable the production crew well they do everything that makes the visual elements believable. Granted I realize I don't have to tell you how much goes into a production, but on my end hopefully things go well and all the people involved will be rewarded for their efforts. For the main reason that I am not a big production or some huge studio project. these people are giving of their time and efforts to work on a project against the odds.

I really wasn't accusing you of saying I was lying, but seriously these 2 people invested just to see it get done, matter of fact both of them would go with your your youtube suggestion and not expect a profit at all. They just liked the story, it's like reading a book and loving it and when you learn it's going to be a movie you plunk down $9 just to see it even though you know everything about it. That payment is typically an investment and your return is entertainment.:-)

Though they did put in more than $5. more like $10, I'm kidding.

Anyway my thing about Buffet and Trump is I was saying I'd be more in line with Buffet a man who is very wealthy but lives modestly.

Funny thing about your last point. That's almost one of Jesus Christ's parables.

See, you've actually proven one of our points. Profit is not necessarily all about the owner's home, cars or next vacation plan. As you've stated, it can be about future "investments" in the business. The mom and pop shops are probably just about mortgages and bills but the real "entrepreneurs" are about business expansion and investments. To expand, profit margins need to be maintained.
I wasn't really arguing against that. And yes I understand profit margins, but seriously in a lot of companies what is the point of maintaining a billions dollar profit when giving an extra dollar might cost 1 million the company still has 999 million. That is still good free cash flow. And unless there's billion dollar BP oil spill or as recently the explosion in Texas a company is not going to need to dip into their net profit to maintain their business...plus that's why they have insurance.

With my movie it's not really distribution of wealth...
- I really do wish you the best here. Like previously stated, it's fun to see people make it.
I really wasn't accusing you of saying I was lying ...
- I most certainly hope that you are more talented than the people putting out big production films. I see the same stories being redone or remixed. There is a good one here and there, but ud think they lost the creativity. I don't know much about the movie business, other than it is expensive. I've kicked around a script with one of my friends who's got a tie to people in LA for a reality show. Maybe I need to flesh it out. Not for money, but more educational values.
Though they did put in more than $5. more like $10, I'm kidding.
- well, if I put in 5 dollars, I'd expect 10 dollars worth of entertainment or compensation hehhehehe
Anyway my thing about Buffet and Trump is I was saying I'd be more in line with Buffet a man who is very wealthy but lives modestly.
- I'm not convinced either of these guys live modestly. It's harderr to do as u have more free cash.
Funny thing about your last point. That's almost one of Jesus Christ's parables.
- how interesting, considering I'm not a bible reader ... One of these days I need to sit down and read that book ... But, u see the point right? One person only saw what was given to him. The other saw what wasn't there at all. I love that.

I leave u with another thought ... Live your life as if every day was the last day. Dreams are the plans of the subconscious mind. It's up to your conscious mind to act on these dreams.

Ah you've reminded me of a quote

"Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible."
