WOW - WHAT ADVICE

I have now read Mr. Harold Barnes, Sr. advice 2X, and plan to retain for future reference. Incredible! Easy to understand and follow, his words of wisdom - if followed by us all - would have a tremendous positive impact on our City, County, State & Nation. Wonderful, practical words to live by. Thank-you, Mr. Barnes, and thank-you TDA for reporting! Bill Hiemer

Speaker's comment is point on!

Mr. Harold Barnes Sr's comment about accepting responsibility for oneself is point on! No better advice can be given than that which he gave. As long as an individual depends on handouts, they can never advance or achieve in life. Now it's time to see just how many that heard his wisdom will act on it. Those who ignore him will be forever enslaved.
