MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT SEPT 11, 2016 from Roland Rhoades
- Fuller Brush & Stanley Home Products is changing all the rules
Sept 30, drastically cutting what we are able to earn, and taking our
wholesale customers and distributors away from us, so not sure what the
future holds. Since 1992 when I first joined, I
have recruited, trained, motivated, and answered phone calls and emails
from thousands of distributors.
They have decided that ALL
distributors or wholesale customers, including the 1200 currently in my reports, are now theirs
directly and will no longer pay referral commissions for doing all the
work of finding them new distributors and providing training materials
like my training website that I built, at the time-expense of not having
as much time to retail myself. In fact, MY TEAM was the only ones
creating any advancements to Director or above since 1999. "Lotsa
Luck" to them finding the time to answer all the questions before
and after recruiting new distributors, especially with them also laying
off all the Kansas customer-service people.
They will be allowing us to
continue selling, but are also cutting the commissions that we earn on
sales. They say it is a matter of finances. I say they are short-sighted
and committing suicide. At age 65, I am hoping to limp along one
more year on just my personal sales until I can collect social security.
I would like to ask ALL
CUSTOMERS to please order what they can from me, or their independent
distributor, before September 30 when this all takes effect. In fact, I
am getting customers stocking up and even doubling their orders this
month when I explain. Thank you very much for your support.
Our online shopping carts will
also be shut down Oct 1-6 or so while they adjust our websites.

ROLAND RHOADES, LARRY GRAY, & MY PRIUS
Larry Gray (rt), the head of Fuller Brush
Distributor Services, visited me (in blue) in Maine 5/15/07.
We discussed the business and the future for about 6 hours,
treating me to lunch.
Our team does what it takes to make this business a success.
Don't let this come
true. Whether you are shopping for Fuller Brush or anything
else, please buy American wherever possible. Look for the USA
symbol on MOST Fuller-Stanley products on my shopping-cart page.
- Thank you. 99%.

FULLER RAP" video
Some things are inherently political, and
that is the only reason I post this here. It affects Fuller
Brush business, as Fuller is economically pressured into
marketing some Made in China products. I will not actively
market those products. Look for the Made in USA label on
our websites and in stores. Thanks. - Roland Rhoades
I want to say that Fuller Brush does
not understand TWO things. (or they DO, and they feel they are too
small to fight it.)
1. Made in China means they diverted jobs from the Americans
they are trying to sell to. If Americans don't have jobs, they
don't have money to buy products. I understand the Catch-22 that
Fuller is in, trying to stay competitive with the hundreds of
"big corporations" doing this. We need a Congress who also
understands this. I find the Republicans to be the worst in
upholding the "freedom" of corporations to do as they please and
not pay their fair share of taxes, but most Democrats certainly
don't deserve any awards either. It is hard to have backbone
against the corporations buying your campaigns.
2. What exactly does Made in the Peoples Republic of China
mean? What is bad is the human rights aspect, communist
or not. Dictatorships are both left and right wing, or sometimes
neither. There probably are some factories in China with fair
working conditions, but with the magnitude of abusers, how can
anyone tell the difference?
You all know about that 47% comment in the last election. Well,
the guy who recorded that did NOT record it for that reason;
that was just gravy. In his interview on The Ed Show, what got
his dander up and making him decide that the world needed to
hear this first hand, was Romney's such obvious pleasure with
the Chinese factory he was buying and touring, because of their
productivity measures. They hired only young girls under 25 who
were desperate for an income before they were able to marry.
They were "protected" by armed guards so they wouldn't get
distracted from their work; they were not allowed to stop work
to look up at visitors to the plant; and the factory was
surrounded by high fencing topped with barbed wire to prevent
them from escaping. Romney said the fencing was to keep other
people from breaking INTO the factory to work!!!!!, and I have a
bridge to sell you.
Until people worldwide care more about people than saving a
few dollars, the corporations will own you and the downward
spiral will accelerate. So.... vote with your pocketbook, but
also with your actual VOTE, after an analysis of every
candidate's position on corporate rights vs human rights. Vote
for Bernie Sanders supporters.

Violence, even well intentioned,
always rebounds upon oneself.

but you sow the seeds for another.

Peace cannot be achieved through violence,
it can only be attained through understanding.

Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.

I object to violence because
when it appears to do good,
the good is only temporary;
the evil it does is permanent.

The world has always been in an uproar,

Choose Peace. Choose to live with Peace.
Choose to interact peacefully with everyone -
especially those whose instinct is not to be peaceful.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
Thank you to my Fuller-Stanley distributor Julius
Rensch of Ohio for these words of wisdom.
Bombing Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Syria, ... might
sound like fun, but it solves nothing and only creates more enemies. And then
the question is "Then what?" when you have solved nothing. Keep bombing? How do
you stop without leaving in defeat? The better man fights with his brain. -
Statement by Roland Rhoades, Fuller Brush Company Top 10
Nationwide Distributor, Recruiter, & Trainer:
"Bernie Sanders is a Positive voice for truth and justice.
Millions who have given up on Republicans & Democrats are supporting
Bernie against the voices of ego, hatred, insults, bigotry, and
divisiveness. A reason to vote again. I am a Berniecrat."
"Bernie is trustworthy. Both liberal and conservative pundits have noted
that you can pick any issue or cause, and you can trace Bernie's
consistency back decades in politics and social change, no
Johnnie-come-lately changing positions as it suits their politics. The
adult in the room. First time voters are potentially voting in November
if they have someone worth voting for, and many people have noted they
have boycotted elections for 20 years because there was nobody they
My wife, a 65-yr-old woman, Hillary's base, has always
wanted a woman for President, but she is open-minded enough to actually
listen to both what Hillary and Bernie are saying, and how they say it,
and switched to Bernie and voted absentee in the Maine caucus.
Bernie as an independent has consistently been opposed
to international trade agreements that enable corporations to move jobs
to China, whether it was Bill Clinton's NAFTA agreement that the
Republicans approved, or Obama's TPP
proposal that Hillary helped draft, but now says she's opposed to it
after Bernie called her out on it. If American workers don't have good jobs and pay, then
there is nobody to buy the products they want to sell.
I find, and so does the world press and leaders, that
the Republicans' hatred and vitriol are an embarrassment to the United
States on the world stage. I see Bernie and Berniecrats as the
positive future leadership of the Democratic Party, just as a new
negative philosophy took
over the Republican Party.
