What defines a “good person”? What moral and ethical standards should one have, and why?

The person defines a good person. Which is a really short answer, but its the truth.

The deeper question is what shapes a persons perception of truth?

The scenarios are endless.

In one instance I’m the ringleader of a group who plans to rob a bank. In this case, I’m a good guy, and my co-conspirators are good guys. But from the standpoint of society, we are all bad guys.

Now what moral and ethical standards should you uphold?

Well your asking me directly. I’ve never attempted to list those things that make a person good, from my perspective.

Let me give it a try.

You should not kill, or seek to kill others. The only time this can be excused, is when the other person is doing said activity of seeking to kill.

You should be considerate of others. This will help you to avoid those awkward social blurts where you may yell out your opinion. Only to find that your the ignorant one of the group. Its okay, its really the most effective way of learning.

You should not take that which is not yours. If you didn’t work for it, don’t take it. There are those who attempt to justify theft by saying they worked for it (plotting to thieve). Or that the person they are stealing from is in a position to sustain the loss. Well, lets just be realistic, its not your place to judge others, and you never know a persons situation, ever.

Do not judge others. This one is a tricky one. Some would interpret this as accepting everyone regardless of facts. This method does not work. To point out an extreme example, a rapist finds it morally acceptable (on some level) to force sex onto other unwilling individuals. Well, according to the accept-everyone-for-who-they are rule, that would make that guy or girl just a misunderstood person. Someone you need to get to know a little better before you understand their reasoning.

In short, it’s a good idea to gauge people, but do not pass judgment on them.

Why should you strive to be good?

I cannot decide for you the reason you personally should strive to be a “good” person. Even if my examples above don’t seem fully accurate.

A persons desire to do good comes from within his heart/soul. Those who wear “being good” like a coat, and wear it about the social circles have ulterior motives. The grand thing about these people is that eventually the winds of life will become forceful enough to blow that coat off and you will have a plain view of their true character.

As a general unspoken rule, good people are happy people. And happy people enjoy existing.

I suppose what I’m trying to say is if you want to enjoy existing, that might be one reason you could choose to motivate yourself to being a “good” person.

    Hey “dude”! ;-)

    First of all: thank you very much for taking the time to ponder on my philosophical question – BUT: I must admit that I am not quite convinced with the result.

    Let me explain why, if I may.

    “A person defines a good person.” By that I guess you mean that everybody has a different view of what is “good” and what not. And here lies the problem: I really do think that there are things that can be considered as “good” on a higher level, meaning that it can be separated from a single individual’s subjective point of view.

    You give some good examples, like “you should not kill” or “do not judge others”. This is kind of more what I wanted to point out – something that everybody should be aware of if he/she has some common sense, is sane and gives it a try.

    What I mean is: think of it the opposite way – if you said “you should kill” (this is a drastic example), this would mean that – in the end – everybody would be killed… this contradicts the nature of evolution totally, doesn’t it?

    I am really a friend of the Categorical Imperative by Kant, who said: “Act only according to that maxim whereby you can at the same time will that it should become a universal law.”

    Does one want to become killing each other a universal law? I guess that can clearly be answered with a strong and simple NO.

    The problem is: the Categorical Imperative is not that easy to understand… I am still working on understanding it. But I would really like a formula which enables anyone to become a “good” person in the end.

    Well, OK, “Dream on, little Marco…” :-)

    So if I want to be a bad person… should I kill someone or can I just go out and kick bums as they sleep and run over kittens with a truck?

    In response to Marco I would like to comment on the statement

    “think of it the opposite way – if you said “you should kill” (this is a drastic example), this would mean that – in the end – everybody would be killed… this contradicts the nature of evolution totally, doesn’t it?”

    I would have to say that the nature of evolution is survival of the fittest, not survival of who has the highest moral standards, and if surviving means killing then people will kill. Look at history, killing for survival has really been condoned throughout the history of the world and not really until the 19th and 20th centuries did this perception change. Therefore if surviving includes killing and if you were to grow up in a society that condone that kind of action, then that would not make you a bad person in that society (though I don’t think murder has ever been condoned).

    I think that is what Stephen is saying here in his post. If you grow up in a society that does not condone killing and you know this and intentionally kill, or murder, than I think this would define you as a bad person.

    @Marco

    And here lies the problem: I really do think that there are things that can be considered as “good” on a higher level, meaning that it can be separated from a single individual’s subjective point of view.

    I agree with you on this point.

    And its kind of a cat-chasing-tail scenario, but it is still just our perspective, simply because there is no proof. Again, proof being subjective to the person and in this case persons (society).

    What might qualify as proof to one individual does not convince another. The current trend in society is to rely on science for “proof” on all matters. The problem with science is that it is based on the latest set of “proven” theories. Which theories seem to be found wrong given the proper amount of time, and replaced by a new, more accurate theory. It’s easy to see the cycle.

    I’m going off on a tangent here, but you can imagine the problems presented with “proof” that is furbished by an institution of men. Men of whom all have weaknesses. Chief among said weaknesses being greed, greed for personal gain (monies).

    @Richie
    No, killing is not required to be a bad person. Kicking bums and running over kittens is a strong lead to becoming a bad person. If you are looking for activities with which the further your bad-person status. You may consider rabbits. They are an excellent target for such ventures. Rabbits are a good target in this exercise for a few reasons, most of which apply equally to the kitten as well.

    First, rabbits are fluffy, in most cases, they are more fluffy than kittens. Rabbits are also harmless, unless you happen to be in the land of Monty Python, you will unable to find a rabbit that does not invoke extreme cuddling upon contact. And here is where rabbits pull ahead of kittens. Few people own a rabbit, many people own kittens. Therefore rabbits have a novelty factor that kittens do not enjoy.

    @Bryan
    Yes this is more what i was trying to convey, that its the point of view of the person that determines bad or good. And its the experiences of that person that will usually effect his or her judgment.

    I think the real confusion here is that we are approaching a subject that is as vast as the ocean, and we are sailors with teaspoons.

    Let’s talk about a good person…..

    I figured that I’d write something about my longtime friend Andrew Ghalashahi. First I would like to say that Andrew Ghalashahi is a good person who I think is of high moral character and I trust him more than anyone else outside of my blood family. Andrew Ghalashahi was raised by a great family that instilled good morals and family values in him and his sister. If I had any doubts about Andrew Ghalashahi’s character I would not even associate with him. Second, Andrew Ghalashahi is a hard working driven individual who has been successful in any endeavor he has taken on. I credit Andrew Ghalashahi’s creativity and vision for much of the success he has had in life. Of all the many people I have meet in life Andrew Ghalashahi is one of the most funny and charismatic people I have ever met. I will tell you a little how I met Andrew Ghalashahi, our history as friends, Andrew Ghalashahi as a personal trainer, and Andrew Ghalashahi as my business partner. In a nut shell Andrew Ghalashahi truly is a good person no questions asked.

    How I Met Andrew Ghalashahi
    I have known Andrew Ghalashahi since about 1996. I met Andrew Ghalashahi when I was 16 years old when I went to the Pheasant Lane Mall in Nashua, NH with my mother one night. I was wearing a baseball hat with the Lowrider Man logo on it. My hat was turned backwards and I heard someone behind me ask if I was into lowriders. So I turned around and ended up talking with Andrew Ghalashahi and his friend Eric that was also a fanatic about lowrider cars. A friendship quickly grew between Andrew Ghalashahi and myself. So with Andrew Ghalashahi and Eric we started a small car club based out of Nashua, NH. At the time Andrew Ghalashahi owned a blue 1964 Impala SS that was a common site on the streets of Nashua, NH at the time. Andrew Ghalashahi’s Impala was an impressive site to see. The car was way ahead of its time for the New England car customization scene. The car was Andrew Ghalashahi’s creative vision all put together tastefully and beautifully, creativity has never been a stranger to Andrew Ghalashahi.

    A New Beginning
    The car club did well for a few years until I parted ways with the club and Andrew Ghalashahi for foolish personal reasons at the time. A considerable amount of time had passed since I last spoke with Andrew Ghalashahi until one day in 2003 I had received an e-mail from Andrew Ghalashahi. I was surprised to hear from Andrew Ghalashahi and I was very happy to hear from Andrew since it had been quite a few years since we had last spoke. I ended up meeting with Andrew Ghalashahi and we renewed our friendship and brotherhood. It was truly a great feeling having Andrew Ghalashahi around again as a friend. In the time that Andrew Ghalashahi and I had not spoke to each other he had became very mature and very wise in the world of business. Andrew Ghalashahi was surprised and impressed I continued on with the automotive club always trying to take it to the next level and it gave me valuable experience in marketing the club. Andrew Ghalashahi would later become a member of my automotive club and starting a New Hampshire based car club chapter. It is only a matter of time before Andrew Ghalashahi will build another clean classic Impala to cruise the street with.

    Andrew Ghalashahi My Personal Trainer
    In the Fall of 2007 Andrew Ghalashahi helped me get through a difficult break up of a long term relationship. If it wasn’t for Andrew Ghalashahi’s help I would not be in the healthy shape I am in now. Andrew Ghalashahi served as a true inspiration to take better care of my own health. I find Andrew Ghalashahi a inspiration in fitness because when we were both younger he struggled with his weight just as I did. During the time Andrew Ghalashahi and I were not talking he took control of his own weight and started training to become a weightlifter. His wait loss and muscle gain was all done the natural and legal way. Today Andrew Ghalashahi is a fitness professional and certified personal trainer. I decided to hire Andrew Ghalashahi as my own personal trainer because of his determination to push you in the gym to your physical limits. Many personal trainers are afraid to give their clients some serious weight to push but not Andrew Ghalashahi. With Andrew Ghalashahi’s unique training program you will get results! I lost about 60 Lbs so far with Andrew Ghalashahi’s help! Most of what I learned about supplements came from Andrew Ghalashahi as well. I go to the gym with Andrew Ghalashahi about 5-6 times a week where we train for about an hour and a half each time.

    Andrew Ghalashahi My Business Partner
    Andrew Ghalashahi started lead generation at the age of 16. Andrew Ghalashahi has a talent that many people just do not possess. He is able to take a long boring sales pitch and simplify it into 2 sentences, Andrew Ghalashahi calls it the “meat and potatoes pitch”. Techniques like these have given Andrew Ghalashahi a competitive edge throughout his career. Andrew Ghalashahi has a lead generation philosophy that many companies still to this day can’t adopt……..KEEP IT SIMPLE!!!! I’ll leave out the “stupid”. Andrew Ghalashahi is the creative spark that ignites his progressive marketing philosophy. His natural fascination with business and advertising has been evident since high school, where he carried a dog-eared notebook, filled to the brim with his edgy business concepts. Throughout high school, Andrew Ghalashahi continued to be an avid researcher of marketing and business trends. This impelled him to continue his education at a local business college, where he attained his degree in business management. I began helping Andrew Ghalashahi with a few web design projects he had in 2005-2006. The first site Andrew Ghalashahi had me design was for a site offering custom voicemail solutions. The second site Andrew Ghalashahi had me design a directory listing site. After talking over the idea that Andrew Ghalashahi and I would make a good business partnership we decided to start a full service marketing company. Andrew Ghalashahi brought to the table his knowledge of sales, marketing, creativity and driven to succeed. Andrew Ghalashahi has been doing various sales jobs since he was in high school. It was a no-brainer to team up with Andrew Ghalashahi in business because together we make a great business partnership that works well. Andrew Ghalashahi has a vast amount of experience in the business world. Andrew Ghalashahi proved to be a great asset during his career with many growth-oriented companies. But it was time for Andrew Ghalashahi to make his own mark in what had become his passion: Internet Marketing. Andrew Ghalashahi is now known as a serious marketing WEAPON……His vast knowledge in Search Engine Optimization and creative marketing strategies have separated him from the rest. Andrew Ghalashahi’s early concepts and vision, tempered by the maturity and experience he brings to the table from his corporate days—living proof of his outstanding ability to translate concepts into reality.

    Conclusion On Andrew Ghalashahi
    In conclusion Andrew Ghalashahi is a good friend who is trustworthy, of good character, funny, creative, driven, successful and I am proud to call him my friend, personal trainer and business partner. Be sure to Keep an eye out for the personal site of Andrew Ghalashahi coming soon. The site for Andrew Ghalashahi will contain many interesting things about Andrew Ghalashahi. I thank you for taking the time to read about my friend Andrew Ghalashahi.

    that period of time when you were not speaking….was that when he was incarcerated for extortion?

    I dont appreciate all of the negative comments…….. There is 2 side to each story…..that extortion thing was a big lie to cover some acts of some other individuals who did something bad to a friend of his. I have known him since I was 16. Trust me ……I know him better than any of you who dont know him at all.

    Oh yeah BB King……. get a life!

  13. on 12 May 2008 at 8:41 amTomas

    I have worked with Andy (Submit) for the past 13 months. I have gotten to know him pretty well and his a good dude. It just suck seeing people on this blog write bad stuff about him. I know when I started to work with him, everyone told me that he sucks. People need to form their own opinion on people. Why do people like to bush on others so much? Andy is a good hguy with a big heart. he always tries to help people out. Everyone runs into trouble at somepoint in their life. It just so happened that Andy got caught up in a bad, unfortunate situation. Andy is a good guy…Why dont you try to get to know him and find out for yourselves before leave comments with fake names!

  14. on 12 May 2008 at 8:54 amAndrew

    Well well……….Yes…..this is Andrew!!! I wanted to put in a comment since people want to call names and bring up bad things that have happened to me in the past …that I dont care to think about or hear. Yes I did get into a problem in 2003…..but what you all dont know is why I was charged. In my opinion of my lawyers and myself it was a way to cover up the acts of the alleged victim prior to the alleged extortion. You see………..the so called victim……was in my opinion the criminal who was trying to “buy” their way out of a terrible thing they did to a co-worker / friend of mine. I am not go into detail….but will say that it was a terrible thing to be in the middle of.

    If you want to talk business, marketing or even fitness…..I am here to lend a hand. Thank God for the people who knew me before all that crap happened! Let’s all be civil here…….Jay left a comment that he pulled from his site…..big deal!

  15. on 12 May 2008 at 11:34 amTyler

    Yeah…BB KING…….You probably hang out truck stops late at night…looking for a good time…….and have never been caught yet…….what’s your real name…oh yeah it’s ………..LOSER!

  16. on 13 May 2008 at 8:30 amStephen

    wow, I’m so confused. Where did this all come from? Cant we all hug and makeup?

  17. on 14 May 2008 at 7:24 amAndrew

    I agree…this blog was about being a good person….let’s stay on the subject. Good call Stephen :)

  18. on 16 May 2008 at 6:44 amBB

    Your comments might be more credible if any of you used proper spelling and grammar.

    It’s quite lame (not to mention a sign of a poor writer) to mention someone’s full name dozens of times in a post in an attempt to boost their online reputation and get their name associated with “good person” in search engine results. It actually looks quite foolish and has the opposite effect.

  19. on 16 May 2008 at 11:57 amEric

    Dear BB,
    It looks like everyone is being open about who THEY are why not say who YOU are? It’s very easy to hide behind a computer screen and talk nonsense about someone, it’s just a shame that a childish fool like yourself would try to bring up dirt on a person that apparently DOES have his life together and is trying to move ahead with his life. I’ve known Andrew Ghalashahi personally for a long time and I can state he is most certainly a good person. He’s the type of person that would change a spare tire on your car if it was stuck in the mud and he was wearing a white suit and it was raining outside. He’d even do it for someone like yourself, after all the cowardly foolishness you have to post online. The point is that he IS A GOOD PERSON and more people I’m sure will say the same. If you don’t personally know him then chalk it up as your loss, and if you do know him and have an issue with him then go kick rocks.

  20. on 16 May 2008 at 1:02 pmRob

    The bottom line is this. Andrew Galashahi is one of the nicest people I know. I bought a new car that turned out to be a lemon and died 8 days after I bought it. To this day, Andy gives me a ride to work. I’ve offered to pay him, he won’t accept the money. He does it out of the goodness of his heart. THAT’S a good person, period. Mr. King (by the way it’s a shame that you have disgraced the name of one of the world’s greatest blues musicians of all time… you are not a good person. What are you even doing on this site?

  21. on 16 May 2008 at 1:09 pmZiggy

    Hey Marco Luthe ……..making your comments as “GUEST” funny stuff……… grow a set of nuts!

  22. on 19 May 2008 at 10:06 amMarco Luthe

    D’oh!
    I am so stupid: I should have known somebody would find out. :-)
    OK, I admit: I wanted the comments anonymized, because what first seemed to be funny to me then ended up in people throwing nasty things at each other, which wasn’t my intention. And especially when it comes to things like “extortion”, I am not so keen on my name showing up in that context.
    But thanks to you, Ziggy, I now grew some nuts.
    BTW: what about using YOUR real name next time? :-)
    What actually IS funny is that Andrew now wants to be friends with me on Facebook. Sorry, Andrew, but Facebook wants me to confirm that I know you – which I don’t. :-)
    But seriously: if you, Andrew, would like to keep in touch to discuss this, you can certainly do so by contacting me via my blog (that you seem to like – thanks).
    OK, here is what I think about this post and the comments:
    Of yourse, it is not SO bad to copy a whole text from a website and put it into a comment – but I wonder why one a) uses another ones name so often (come on, Jay, even if you like Andrew a lot: using his name 68 times is a little bit too much, don’t you think?) and b) why one can’t try to sum it up a little.
    Don’t get me wrong, guys: this has nothing to do with a grudge against anyone here. And it might really be true that Andrew is a good person – I can’t tell. As I said: I do not know him.
    All I know is that the comment about him by Jay did not answer my question, as I need some more than just an example, right?
    I want this to be answered on some kind of an abstract level.
    Otherwise, one could describe any good friend as a good person by giving some examples. But I do not want to know why especially Andrew here is a good person – I wanna know what defines a good person “per se”.
    But first: let’s all give a big hug, like Stephen suggested… except for Ziggy, of course, who blew my cover… :-)

    Anyway… Stephen, dude, where’s the “Subscribe to follow-ups” gone?

  23. on 19 May 2008 at 1:43 pmStephen

    Oops, I’d disabled the Comment Subscribe ability to upgrade the system and forgot to re-enable. Its back now. :)

    Thanks for pointing that out.

  24. on 21 May 2008 at 5:43 amEric

    Dear Mr. Luthe,

    Who really cares if Andrew Ghalashahi wants to be your friend on facebook or not? Why is that even worth mentioning in here? But it may be a good way to keep in touch with Mr. Ghalashahi if your are really interested in doing so. You’d see he not a bad guy at all.
    As far as Jay’s original post and posting it word for word from his site, that’s cool. I see what he’s doing for his friend. Who the hell are you ask why Jay had orginally made his post? You don’t need examples, reasons or to know motives. There is no point in really answering you when you apparently already made up your mind regarding Mr. Ghalashahi. You said it yourself my friend, you won’t even approve him on facebook. LOL If you can’t figure out the intent of the original post in here then sadly to say my friend you are not as intelligent as you portray yourself to be. Any real friend would do that for each other, is that a big deal to get the truth out there about a friend who has had some misfortune in his life? It just sickens me to see nonsense posted about this individual online when he is a outstanding citizen.
    I have known Mr. Ghalashahi for many, many, many, years. Even though It has been a bit since we last spoke I still hold him in high regard and know he is a good person. Many more people will have good things to say about Mr. Ghalashahi than any bad. I doubt anyone will have anything truly bad to say about him anyways. Unless of course it’s someone who does not like him for one prejudice reason or another, and they feel the need to air their soiled laundry and do so from a hidden screen name. I’ve seen this guy help disabled motorists and push their cars, ran after people who left their own personal belongings behind and I have even seen many acts of kindness towards animals as well from Mr. Ghalashahi. In today’s modern society you just don’t see people like that anymore. Andrew Ghalashahi is one of the very few people I have ever known that is a selfless individual and a great person.
    Mr. Luthe put on your best lederhosen and fill up the stein because I’d love to dance to the best polka with you my bruder.

    Love,
    Eric

  25. on 21 May 2008 at 6:25 amMarco Luthe

    Hey Eric,

    where does all that hate come from? Do you consider yourself a “good person” spreading those nasty words: “Mr. Luthe put on your best lederhosen and fill up the stein because I’d love to dance to the best polka with you my bruder.” ?

    Seems like someone visited my blog. BTW: Polka does not originate from Germany, like Wikipedia knows:

    “The polka is a fast, lively Central European dance, and also a genre of dance music, familiar throughout Europe and the Americas. It originated in the middle of the 19th century in Bohemia, and is still a common genre in Czech and Slovakian folk music.”

    You should realize:
    This post was not supposed to be about Andrew Ghalashahi.
    This post was not supposed to be about me.
    This post was not supposed to be about you, either.

    And you obviously did not read my post correctly – I never insulted Andrew: “Don’t get me wrong, guys: this has nothing to do with a grudge against anyone here. And it might really be true that Andrew is a good person – I can’t tell. As I said: I do not know him.”

    Learn to read before you insult others:
    “But I do not want to know why especially Andrew here is a good person – I wanna know what defines a good person “per se”.”

    Even if I repeat myself:
    This post was not supposed to be about Andrew Ghalashahi.
    This post was not supposed to be about me.
    This post was not supposed to be about you, either.

    But it seems to me that this whole thing has changed into:
    “Why is Andrew Ghalashahi a good person?”

    Since I do not know him, it seems like I am in the wrong place here. You won. I’ll shut up. There is no sense in saying anything else. You are way too intelligent for me.

    … what a pity that you just don’t get the core of my original question.

    Bye!

  26. on 21 May 2008 at 6:44 amEric

    Dear Marco,

    Let’s not make my love of good beer and dance subject of the post. I didn’t say you “Hate” Andrew nor did I say I hate you. Life is too short for hate my friend. The point of my post is that you seem to be closed minded in regarding Mr. Ghalashahi that’s all.

    Love,
    Eric
    xoxoxoxoxo

  27. on 21 May 2008 at 7:00 amMarco Luthe

    Okay, Eric, let’s be honest and “live in harmony” (that’s actually the term that dict.cc comes up with). Sorry if I made the impression I were closed minded – let me make this clear now once and for all: I do not know Andrew and I have NO OPINION on him since I DO NOT KNOW HIM. :-)

    Well, your love to beer and dance rather sounded like a concealed threat to me than a cool party, HAHAHA. Seems like we misunderstood totally. :-)

    Everything is fine. Let’s hug and be good people.

    Nonetheless, I’m outta here.
    Bye!

    As far as being honest I gave my honest opinion on what a good person is indeed. Mr. Ghalashahi just happens to fit what myself and others think a good person is.

    LOL Yeah big misunderstanding on the beer and dance my friend. I’m not a very threatening looking person. I have girly arms and my little shoes squeak when I walk. I’m not into being an e-thug and I’m certainly not trying to threaten you. That’s enough about me and back to the orginal intent of the blog.

    A hug sounds good. :) Good day sir!

    Your New Friend,
    Eric “the good person”

  29. on 21 May 2008 at 7:38 amEric

    To Mr. Ghalashahi,

    I don’t know if you still check on here or what but I ran across this page searching for you. Now that I know you are on facebook I’ll have to look you up on there and add you as my friend. It’s been a long time since we last spoke. I see you’ve accomplished many great things in the professional world even when a wrench get thrown in things, I always knew you would do well my friend. I can’t wait to catch up on things with you.

    “Andy G is a stand up guy, sure he has his hair sculpted and has a vanity license plate with his name and he has pictures of his back on MySpace, but I digress. When you actually get to know him, you realize he’s a big friendly ogre who will stick his neck out for a friend, do his best to make you laugh with a Chicago accent or just listen if you’re having a problem. I find it funny when these faceless blogging chumps spread gossip like a 16 year old girl watching the latest edition of The Hills. Andy’s a solid dude and a solid friend and doesn’t deserve to have his good name slandered on the internet on a blog of all places bye a fat, acne ridden virgin. Good luck getting laid in cyber space pal. Andy G= Solid Dude.”

  31. on 21 May 2008 at 9:51 amJay

    Wow…. I never thought my original post would create such a heated debate over Andrew Ghalashahi and the meaning of what a good person is…..

    First, regarding the comment about “Jay must love Andrew”. Well not to sound gay because I am not but I do “love” him as my close friend. If that’s what you want to call it. I would do just about anything for him and his family in the blink of an eye….. but why would I do this, why would I take the time to stick up for him… to even write all this……. Ding… Ding… Ding… Because I think he is a good person that comes from a solid background…

    It is correct that I copied and pasted the comment into the blog from my own personal site…. I feel that he has had such a life changing impact on my own life it was worth mentioning him and this blog seemed like a good place to leave an example of what I think a good person is and open up a little debate…..

    Now I know someone must have googled Andrew Ghalashahi and saw what came up first… Then the prejudgements came rolling into the blog and that must make him a bad person huh? Incorrect! I did Andrew and his wonderful family a favor and put together a nice write up about him on my site because I think very highly of him. I thought and still do think he’s a great example of a good person. If I had even an inclination of doubt about Andrew I would not associate with him at all. It’s that simple!!!!

    Now the responses in here are great debate on what a good person is because here are many people giving good feedback on Andrew Ghalashahi but a few want to believe the first thing they read in google and try to find something bad to talk about regarding Andrew Ghalashahi…..

    The bottom line is that a good person is someone with a concience, understands wrong from right, and lives life in a manner that is thoughtful of OTHERS and pleasing to God… That is what a good person is and that is Andrew Ghalashahi!!!!

    My apologies to Stephen on this matter I never thought my inital post would have caused such a heated debate on such a topic….

  32. on 21 May 2008 at 11:27 amAndrew Ghalashahi

    Eric would you be so kind to request me as a friend on Facebook? I look forward to it! everyone…..thank you for all of your kind words.

    . Caring
    . Respectful

  34. on 22 May 2008 at 6:29 amEric

    hmmmmm…………..????????

  39. on 27 May 2008 at 7:56 amAndrew Ghalashahi

    Please request me as a friend on Facebook. I have thought long and hard and I am stuck on the riddle.

  40. on 27 May 2008 at 9:01 amEric

    Maybe because I made a few mistakes in my riddle made it impossible to solve. I’ll even give you a few hints. Try again

    first word
    My first is in goofy and also in frog = G
    My second is in funding and also in underground
    My third is in cat but not in cosy
    My fourth is in race but also in rosy
    My fifth is in dog and also in holding
    My sixth is in individual and always in wait
    My seventh is in canned but never in pressed
    My 8th is in napping AND ALWAYS slapping
    second word
    My first is in fable and also in stable
    My second is in numb and also in NEWTON = N
    My third is in green but not in red
    My fourth is in face but also in feet
    My fifth is in legs but never in arms

    Now solve the riddle ;)

  41. on 27 May 2008 at 9:19 amEric

    Well as for the subject of good people are they “nature” or “nurture”? Meaning is they born good people are are they raised as good people? I thing everyone is born good in my opinion, but over time outside influence corrupts and twists an individual esp if they easily influenced by these forces. For example just as the oxygen in the air slowly turns a feshly bitten apple brown.

  42. on 27 May 2008 at 6:13 pmAndrew Ghalashahi

    I think it is both nature and nurture.

    Man I am stuck…you can email me if you want…… andyg3000@gmail.com

    this is what I have so far….makes no sense

    My first is in goofy and also in frog = G
    My second is in funding and also in underground u
    My third is in cat but not in cosy c
    My fourth is in race but also in rosy r
    My fifth is in dog and also in holding o
    My sixth is in individual and always in wait a i
    My seventh is in canned but never in pressed no idea
    My 8th is in napping AND ALWAYS slapping a
    second word
    My first is in fable and also in stable a
    My second is in numb and also in NEWTON = N
    My third is in green but not in red g
    My fourth is in face but also in feet f e
    My fifth is in legs but never in arms ?

    is this Eric Leblanc?

  43. on 28 May 2008 at 5:00 amEric

    Let’s see what you have so far:

    My first is in goofy and also in frog = G (correct)
    My second is in funding and also in underground u (correct)
    My third is in cat but not in cosy c (incorrect)
    My fourth is in race but also in rosy r (correct)
    My fifth is in dog and also in holding o (incorrect)
    My sixth is in individual and always in wait i (correct)
    My seventh is in canned but never in pressed no idea
    My 8th is in napping AND ALWAYS slapping a (incorrect)
    second word
    My first is in fable and also in stable a (correct)
    My second is in numb and also in NEWTON = N (freebie)
    My third is in green but not in red g (correct)
    My fourth is in face but also in feet e (correct)
    My fifth is in legs but never in arms ?

    Close but no cigar, finish my riddle and I’ll get in touch. ;)

    I know Andy g from work, and I’m glad to have him as a co-worker. He is a stand up guy with a great sense of humor and does’nt mind a laugh at his expense once in a while. Andy is honest, straight forward, and hard working. He’s always willing to help a co-worker, and is appreciated by all who work with him. I think he fits the definition of a good person, and I’m glad to know him.

  45. on 03 Jun 2008 at 4:40 pmDeardre

    Just a few questions…

    1.) What accredited college did Mr. Ghalashahi attend in order to earn his “talent” in marketing? Solid credentials surpasses a “dog eared” notebook full of “ideas” anyday. What was his highest level of degree earned? His GPA? His alumni involvement now?

    :::SILENCE:::

    …That’s what I thought.

    2.) “Andrew Ghalashahi proved to be a great asset during his career with many growth-oriented companies.” Care to name what those are? (P.S… The slammer doesn’t count, neither does divorce court!)

    3.) If Andrew Ghalashahi is such a “good” person, then what does he contribute back to society? What charity work does he do? Why doesn’t someone who’s CONVICTED of a FELONY admit they acted wrong and show remorse? Stating that you were “caught in the middle” is beyond immature and irresponsible; it shows just who he really is…

    …and it AIN’T good!!!

  46. on 04 Jun 2008 at 7:04 amEric

    Deardre,

    First, I would like to answer some things you would like to bring up with your irrelevant and childish post.

    1. I’ll let Mr. Ghalashahi answer about his solid credentials. I think you will see you are gravely mistaken.

    :::SILENCE::: (In astonishment of your stupidity)

    2. I’m sure Mr. Ghalashahi would love to name a few of the companies and again you will see that you are simply misinformed on all matters concerning Mr. Ghalashahi. The “slammer” and bringing up divorce once again irrelevant. There are plenty of good people who have been divorced. Besides statisticly speaking 52% of marrages in the United States end in divorce. Bringing Mr. Ghalashahi’s divorce into the mix is retarded and shows how immature you really are. If you really want to know what happened to that marrage do a search of public records and see who filed and why.

    3. Being convicted and doing a crime are two different things. Mr. Ghalashahi is INNOCENT of any wrong doing. If he really DID commit the crime why not just plead guilty and get NO TIME what so ever? Because he didn;t do anything wrong! He brought his case to trial because the evidence is in his favor. He is the victim of of corrupt judicial system and was the “scape goat”.

    Like I have stated before if you don’t truly know Mr. Ghalashahi then that is your loss. If you have nothing good to say about him THEN GO KICK ROCKS!!!

    Eric

    lol……

    So much prejudice……….

    Deardre . . who are you……?

    I would really like to know…………..

  48. on 04 Jun 2008 at 7:32 amAndrew Ghalashahi

    Eric…..it really is good to see someone speaking the truth…….. I have to always explain myself to people about what happened to me……. I really wan to know who you are…. you are pretty cool!

  49. on 04 Jun 2008 at 7:33 amJay

    I’m astonished at some of the crap people post in here. They’d never say it to your face Andy. Too many e-gangsters on this blog…. LOL I wouldn’t worry about, obvisously someone has a chip or two on their shoulder, they can type some hype but they won’t bring their issue with you to you person to person. LOL It’s just lame to be that much of a faceless nameless coward hiding behind a computer screen throwing e-dirt IMO

    If I really thought Andy was a bad person I’d have nothing to do with him at all.

  50. on 04 Jun 2008 at 7:37 amEric

    Mr. Ghalashahi,

    Check post 43 my friend ;) Only then you will remember who I am!

    Eric

  51. on 04 Jun 2008 at 7:42 amBB

    Deardre, he’s nothing but a cold call salesman…the kind everybody hates, and the kind that is rapidly going the way of the dinosaur. Look up BAO Systems (By Appointment Only in Bedford, Massachusetts)…the company tries to be clever and mysterious on their homepage about what they do, but a few articles written about them in the news section reveals that computer and technical companies hire them to do their selling for them. It’s not the same as marketing, not by a long shot.

  52. on 04 Jun 2008 at 7:52 amEric

    BB,

    I’m so glad you returned for some more fun and games!

    Lead-gen : Lead generation (commonly abbreviated as lead-gen) is a marketing term that refers to the creation or generation of prospective consumer interest or inquiry into a business’ products or services. Often lead generation is associated with marketing activity targeted at generating sales opportunities for a company’s sales force. Therefore a lead is correctly described as information regarding or provided by a consumer that may be interested in making a purchase. Whereas, generation is one of a myriad of activities that may produce that information and perceived interest.

    Sounds like marketing to me? That’s pretty bad for you not to know this because I suspect you work with him correct?

    Eric

  53. on 04 Jun 2008 at 8:54 amEric

    BB,

    Also since I suspect you work at the same place I would like to inform you that all company outbound web traffic is logged and all outbound text is as well. It will be as simple as checking the web server logs down to what switch port the posts came from and your “cover” will be blown. In other words I hope you meet all your call quotas because it will be known what you do in your cube all day. The repercussions would be detrimental to your own career.

    Eric

  54. on 04 Jun 2008 at 8:59 amAndrew Ghalashahi

    Wow…… That’s just one aspect of Marketing that I know about……..

    I was a Marketing Director for a small start-up out of Manchester for for my internship BACK IN 2002….. Yes I do call into businesses to introduce high technology solutions for our clients.

    BB who the hell are you? You have such a big mouth behind that FAKE screen name. I hope you don’t work here…….. How do you know where I work?

  55. on 04 Jun 2008 at 9:20 amEric

    Mr. Ghalashahi,

    It just sounds like a jealous poor performer trying to slander your name and good reputation.

  58. on 04 Jun 2008 at 10:40 amTomas

    BB Queen why do you man the fuck up and put your real name down? If you are such a man enter your real name. I would love to see it. But we all know you will not eneter your real name because you are a coward.

  59. on 04 Jun 2008 at 10:44 amBrian Bannister

    Heyy BB I’m embarresed to have the same initials as u. You are real tough talking about somebody on a blog. You were one of those kids in high school that thought you were cool but no one liked you. Honestly I didn’t know what to think of Andy when we first met other people said that they didn’t like him well others thought the world of him. It took me and him a while but now I consider him one of my good friends. Before trying to act like a tough guy and talk about somebody through your keyboard why don’t you make an effort and get to know him. By the way you not telling us your real name just tells us how much of a little girl you are, a real man or woman in your case would use their name.

  60. on 04 Jun 2008 at 10:51 amEric

    Mr. Ghalashahi,

    The second word is correct! ;)

    Eric

  61. on 04 Jun 2008 at 11:48 amAmanda

    I’ve known Andy for 2 years now and have found him to be one of the hardest working individuals I know. He is always willing to help others and share his advice in an industry he know a lot about. He is not just my co-worker, but a good friend. It seems like some of you have been waiting for a blog like this so you can your post annoymous, hateful comments. If you have such a problem with Andy, why waste all of this time bashing him? You are nothing but a coward. Grow up.

    A wise man once told me that to be the dog in the woods you must first be the goat in the pond. That said, I think it is obvious that five fallen oaks are stronger than 3 bald carrolts on a Saturday night in Grandchester Meadows! Know what I mean?!?! I guess really what I am trying to say is, eat your soup whether you have toes or not and always take the one on the left!

    Love you all,
    Justin

  64. on 04 Jun 2008 at 1:40 pmEric

    My first is in goofy and also in frog …………………………G (correct)
    My second is in funding and also in underground ……………….U (Correct0
    My third is in cat but not in cosy …………………………………T(INCORRECT)
    My fourth is in race but also in rosy …………………………….. R(correct)
    My fifth is in dog and also in holding (D G )I assume this would be a vowel? ( D would be correct)
    My sixth is in individual and always in wait ……………………..I (Correct)
    My seventh is in canned but never in pressed …………………….C (Incorrect)
    My 8th is in napping AND ALWAYS slapping …PPING is in both words (Incorrect)

    Close!

  65. on 04 Jun 2008 at 2:10 pmJP

    Dear “Pilat”,

    What you wrote has deeply offended me. Especially the part about “bald carrolts”….what is a carrolt?? Also, what do you have against toes? I have 10 toes and I am proud of each and every one of them so “bleep” you! I bet you have never seen fallen oak, let alone 5 of them.

    You make me sad.

  66. on 04 Jun 2008 at 2:19 pmPilat

    JP,

    I respect your opinion and am glad you took the time to reply. I too have toes though I will not get into detail on how many. Suffice it to say that the salad never strays far from the grouper, if you catch my meaning. And I have seen fallen oak.

    As far as carrolts goes, maybe you should do some research. You will find that carrolts are a rare but wildly popular and common fungus that is known to grow at the bottom. Never judge a telephone pole that has no birds perched on its buffalo wing.

    Regards,
    Pig Nose

  67. on 04 Jun 2008 at 2:23 pmNitsuj Talip

    “Pilat” and “JP”,

    I really loathe you both!!!!!! I hope your fingernails turn into moist toast and your ears burn with the fire of 1000 grapes!

  68. on 04 Jun 2008 at 5:04 pmDeardre

    BB,

    You are so right!!! And he (“Dru”) tries to act like his job is legit marketing – let me tell you, no fortune 500 company in their RIGHT MIND would hire a sketchy con artist with NO CREDENTIALS or formal education!!! A full service marketing firm? MY ASS! This guy is too lazy to find a real job — and can’t, being a convicted felon — so he’s trying to launch a “start-up” company (which is a total joke).

    And to Eric: “If he really DID commit the crime why not just plead guilty and get NO TIME what so ever?” You are wrong. He would get time either way (whether he pled guilty or innocent) because he DID IT! And I’m sure Andrew IS a nice guy like you say — after all, people say Charles Manson is a nice guy too.

    Bottom line, this guy is a creep who has a background of “juicing”, dealing illegal substances, and commiting a bunch of other heinous acts of crime. I’m sorry, but a CONVICTED FELON has no excuses in life and no second chances. How about instead of posting a fake blog glorifying yourself as a “trainer” and marketing “guru”, Andrew, you let someone else praise you for real? Like donating to The March of Dimes, being an acitivist or doing charity work at a local church. If anything would clear your name, it would be that. Do you really think a “dog eared notebook full of ideas” is going to wipe your slate clean? If you were really a marketing “genius”, you would know that!

    And P.S., you are not a consultant or a guru. No one around here has even heard of you!

  69. on 04 Jun 2008 at 5:18 pmJamie

    andrew never had no impala he hadda white tricked out Honda..alz i can say is after readin dis crazy shit im glad i dont have to make no excuses for my man!

  70. on 05 Jun 2008 at 5:40 amEric

    Deardre AKA BB,

    How about this, perhaps you should just say who you are now because the hiding behind the computer screen is just plain cowardly. You cover is going to be blown soon anyways so you should just say who you are.

    You keep saying Mr. Ghalashahi has no credentials or formal education. You are sadly mistaken, your intent is clear, you are only here to spread mis-truth, mis-information, and out right lies for your own twisted personal enjoyment. What you are doing is slander / defamation of character and legal recourse could be taken against you as soon as your true identity is revealed.

    Regarding Andrew’s case: HE IS INNOCENT, HE DIDN’T DO ANYTHING! He could have easily walked away and went home from court if he pleaded guilty however because he felt in his heart and knew he didn’t do anything wrong he fought the bogus charges against him. Sadly the wrong person went to jail. He is a victim of a corrupt judical system, that I pray even as much everyone loathes you on here that you don’t get caught up in it.

    Andrew is a natural bodybuilder, he has never used any illegal performance inhancing substances nor does he condone the use of such substances. This is a bogus rumor started by a few unhealthy morons who don’t understand what good genetics are or what training, proper diet and working hard almost every day in the gym means.

    Plenty of people have GREAT things to say about Mr. Ghalashahi and they will PRAISE him. I think his actions speak for himself, it’s obvious he is a good person trying to do what is right. The only person that you should worry about is you and clearing your conscience by revealing who you are and why you are really on here.

    Step out of the shadows and show your yellow face evil demon.

    Eric

    Hey Jaime, nice grammar. I bet you look as good as you spell. You’re soooo gangsta………

  74. on 05 Jun 2008 at 4:30 pmDeardre

    Eric, BB, And. Gha., Jamie, Nitsuj, et. al.:

    “What you are doing is slander / defamation of character and legal recourse could be taken against you as soon as your true identity is revealed.”

    I can’t be guilty for slander –you still haven’t listed any credentials! I want to know why he claims he ” has a talent that many do not posess.” (how did you get there?) I want to know the “local business college” he attended (obviously I am a staff member at one as well, that is why I am profoundly interested). What “growth-oriented companies” did AG work at? (Notice companies, as quote, is plural.) If you’re going to boast, then you have to back it up with examples. Otherwise you are a phony. I would be happy if I was proven wrong – I just want to know what these credentials are. What’s the big deal? If you can’t list them, then you shouldn’t be writing blogs saying you are a guru– THAT’S defarmation of character! You’re just putting yourself out there and asking for it…ESPECIALLY with a criminal background!!!!
    I just came across seeing that “AG” was evidently a talented person — but know this all seems very sketchy and I’m thinking it’s just a bunch of balogny. I don’t know who any of you are, and frankly, I’m glad. And PS, the reason why I ever brought up the divorce was because I was challenging the writer who claimed he (AG) had “good morals” – what moral person goes to jail and gets a divorce, all by 28*?

    (*Age calculated from information obtained through public-record court document excerpts)

    This is a blog. If you’re going to get so defensive, then leave, and don’t make yourself the topic of discussion!!

    And Eric, I would be happy to reveal myself – but the point of a blog is to remain anynomous so that everyone is protected of free speech. The only reason Andrew’s name is revealed in the first place is because it was his own bad judgment that put him in a position to make it publicly known.

    Regards,
    Deardre

  75. on 05 Jun 2008 at 5:32 pmBebe aka BB

    Hey Deardre,

    Actually, I’m on your side and find it hilarious that everyone here thinks we are the same person. I have the feeling you and I would hit it off; alas, can’t give you my email address here or the nutsos would go beserk.

    Guys, everything that Deardre and I put on here about Andrew Ghalashahi is public information. Andrew, where you work is no secret. Just Google your own name. Duh.

    And Eric, thank you so much for enlightening us all with your lame-o copy-and-paste definition job of lead generation from Wikipedia. No one gives a rat’s a$$, though, It doesn’t matter how many pearls you put on a pig – it’s still cold calling.

    And Jay, you started this. If you write a ridiculously long and pathetic diatribe about somebody and mention his name a hundred freakin’ times and post it online, you can bet it’s going to look like you’re trying way too hard. Of course people are going to Google your buddy’s name after that. Several people already did, including the guy who found your personal site. You’re trying to clear his name but it backfired on you, big time. Man, from everything that Deardre mentioned and what’s public info on AG I wouldn’t care to know him or any of you dolts.

    BTW, you accuse Deardre and I of being the same person. I wonder how many of you posted under multiple names.

    BB’s leaving for good now…

    I have worked very hard to get where I am now….even if you don’t agree with my industry of choice.

    The firm that I am with now is a great company to work for and I am proud to say I work their. I am not their for a check…I am their because I Love what I do and I am pretty DAMN good at it! I bought my first home last year…….. I have a new car……. I am learning new things everyday about new high technology in different industries………. It’s great! I work with some of the most talented people in the lead generation world!

    It’s pretty sad that your goal here was to hurt my name. I want to thank all the “good people” who have said kind things about me. It’s a shame that these two people have to do a thing like this. It was almost like their was a personal anger their……It was a bit confusing. I am successful and happy no matter how much these two people try their hardest to bring up things of the past or even make up some things…… the heinous crimes things made me chuckle by the way. A lot has happened in my life ….some good and some bad. No one’s life is picture perfect. All I hope for is to move on and stay on track

    I am expecting a baby boy in October and plan to be the best DAD I can be. That is my main focus in this chapter of my life.

    Deardre aka BB (I still think you are the same person) : What exactly are YOUR experiences with Mr. Ghalashahi? Do you know him personaly? Judging by the frequency you come on here suggests you are more than just some random stranger “passing through” and stumbled on a page about Mr. Ghalashahi. No one in the world would put that much time and effort into slandering a complete stranger. So with that said you must know Mr. Ghalashahi somehow and have a chip on your shoulder with him. Most likely I would have to say you are a snake in the grass that prob would smile to his face and then come on here type all this slander and hide behind the computer screen assuming that no one will figure out who you are.

    Libel and Slander: The First Amendment DOES NOT protect speech that constitutes dishonesty intended to defame or damage the reputation of a person or an organization. Libel is written and slander is spoken; both are false statements injurious to a person’s reputation.

    If you feel your claims are truly protected by free speech then just post who you really are. Just do it, if you feel so strongly that your libel is free speech then the law would be on your side and you would be protected by the first admendment right?

    Sure, you can put pearls on a pig, but you can’t put a backbone in a nameless yellow belly.

    Interesting enough the details of Mr. Ghalashahi being divorced DO NOT appear on the internet. Neither do the circumstances of the divorce and that it had nothing to do with “good morals” or so forth. Now as far the the “juicing” comment, that is also NOT on the internet as well. Because this is a untrue small town rumor that was pretty much isolated to Mr. Ghalashahi’s home town it would reasonable to believe that you lived in the same town as him or know him directly somehow.

    i think that deadre and bbKING are one and the same! and if my suspicions are correct…king is part of your last name…we know who you are…jk…wow…

  80. on 06 Jun 2008 at 11:44 amdd queen

    bb …deardre…you are a judgemental idiot! i too am divorced and am offended …not everyone who gets divorced has no morals …i was in an abusive relationship and had to get out… if you are lucky enough to find someone who will be able to overlook your ugliness and marry you …i wish you the best of luck

    He who has never sinned may cast the first stone, as a young person many of us make choices whether good or bad that teach us lessons for our lives. To claim someone is a moral person because they have not done this or that, I myself was in a relationship with a police officer who on the outside looked like a moral, good citizen in blue uniform, but the truth was he cheated on me with other female officers and many women in his feild. I watched him take drugs, drink alcohol regularly . I’m am not saying that every police officer is a bad person. To Deardre and BB king you state facts about a person because you read it somewhere. Many people can look good or bad on paper but what is a piece of paper when compared to someones life. Do people not have the opportunity to learn and make their lives better? If I were married at 22 I would be divorced too, because the person I am now is no where close to the person I was then. In our society how about priest who rape children, or preachers who beat their wives, or judges who send innocent people to jail, or cops who do drugs including steriods, and I have known a few. Maybe if you took a good long look in the mirror maybe you are just another person who may look good on paper, but you are actually not a good person.

  82. on 06 Jun 2008 at 2:57 pmDeardre

    BB,
    I do find it halarious that people think we are the same person. Too bad we will never be able to connect!

    And to Andrew: You spell “there” (as in, ” I work there”) like I just spelled it….not “their”, as you did. Just minor details, but important if you’re a high-powered, in-demand “guru” like yourself!

    Third – Unfortunetly, Eric, you cannot commit Libel against vagueness. To date, I still haven’t heard of any specific credentials – colleges, companies. Maybe you shouldn’t try to sound smart, since obviously you aren’t.

    All in all, I’m leaving this bogus chatroom. BB hit it on the head when he said that anyone who mentions a name 64 times in an essay is just BEGGING to be Googled…so don’t act so surprised! And Eric, my friend, as you stated:

    “Bringing Mr. Ghalashahi’s divorce into the mix is retarded and shows how immature you really are. If you really want to know what happened to that marrage do a search of public records and see who filed and why.”

    Then you say…

    “Interesting enough the details of Mr. Ghalashahi being divorced DO NOT appear on the internet.”

    You confuse me…both your rambling and your incorrect spelling. Speaking of the same person, it’s very evident that you are Andrew and vice versa.

    So we still can’t name companies? Still can’t name a college?

    Best of luck with cleaning up your name AG…I do believe a leapord can change his spots, but not by posting a self-glorifying, empty, burden-of-proof-lacking essay.

    Regards,
    Deardre

  83. on 06 Jun 2008 at 3:56 pmDeardre

    Ok I admit that I am also BB, I have nothing better to do with my life but to troll and try to make people upset. Anyone know where I can get some anal beads?

    Regards,
    Deardre

  84. on 06 Jun 2008 at 4:40 pmAndrew Ghalashahi

    Please stop trying so hard to have the last word. You are acting like a lonely child. We can keep going with this for as long as you want COWARD…THAT IS YOUR NEW NAME by the way….everyone on this blog her new name is ( Deardre the COWARD). In my opinion you are a loser.

    I have plenty of friends and HUGE network in the business world and have no issues……. keep being a staff member at a college and processing applications or sweeping the floor for all I care. I am glad your leaving this blog.

    Good luck with your negative outlook on life…….

    PS…………….. 2nd chances are a state of mind….

    I pity at those who get convicted of a crime and wear the scarlet letter in sorrow, like their not good enough……

    NO ONE WILL CONTROL MY FAIT OF DESTINY OTHER THAN ME AND ONLY ME!!!!

    Companies ring my phone off the damn hook to have me work for them and I am where I am because that’s who I want to work for! I am there by choice…….

    FELONY OR NO DAMN FELONY…….. I AM A HIGH ENERGY LEADER THAT WILL NOT PUT UP WITH YOUR BULLSHIT HARRASSMENT!!!

  85. on 06 Jun 2008 at 8:28 pmDreardre

    Ok I’ll admit it, I am also BB. I have nothing better to do with my life so I figure I’d focus on you and put you down to feel better about myself. I am a bad person for doing this. PS, anybody know a good place to get some anal beads?

    Regards,
    Deardre

  86. on 06 Jun 2008 at 8:47 pmDreardre

    I’m sorry for all this harrasment. I’ve been sitting around and thinking about this and I feel really bad for acting like this. I get really moody when I drink and do a little blow and can’t help lashing out at random people on the internet. I also realized that I have made a ton of spelling errors with words such as leopard. Silly me I should know that since my size 28 panties have a leopard print. I’m pretty wasted right now, if anyone would like to meet up I can get a hotel room real cheap and we can do some crack. I know this is a little off the topic but where can a BBW like myself score a man for the booty call…?

    I’M SORRY AG

    Regards,
    Deardre

  87. on 06 Jun 2008 at 8:55 pmDreardre

    AG I also wanted to bring up the fact that I know you take care of circus animals, and sometimes leave change in the dryer at the laundromat. Sometimes you even double park! I see you at the suermarket and you are a HORRIBLE person because you don’t put the carriage back in it’s corral. You also cut in line at the deli counter and don’t tip at all-you-can-eat buffets. You also leave earwax on the phone at work and you don’t pump your own gas, you go to full service stations! This is an outrage!

    Regards,
    Deardre

    bb king/deardre…can you say bipolar/…my dear you need to get laid

  89. on 07 Jun 2008 at 5:01 pmguest

    bb we are not using spell check…like you are…someone may misspell something because they may have a limited time to write…you obviously have a lot of free time on your hands…the rest of us have lives to attend to

  90. on 08 Jun 2008 at 10:46 amangleface

    wow, i cannot believe what this has turned into! this is about being a GOOD person…btw deardre…you spell hilarious like i just did not the way you did…you are an ass

    Very interesting conversation about Andrew Galeshahi.
    I do not know if any of it is true. I suspect like everything else there is a little bit of truth to everything and a lot of spin into opinion. So I will tell the truth from my own personal experience. The New Hampshire Court system is most definitely the land of good ole boys and girls. As someone who was tried for a felony and found guilty when I only peacefully defended someone about to be killed, I can understand the predicament.
    The blog was about what it takes to be a good person.
    1. Correct knowledge of what is good and what is evil.
    2. Avoid evil. Repent and make ammends if you are tainted by it.
    3. Do good and take no credit for it, as its source is God, not you.
    I suggest reading up on the 10 commandments. You will find many of them have been broken in this blog.

    God Bless!

  92. on 08 Jan 2010 at 12:16 pmAndrew

    so ………..I will mind my business next time and not get myself wrapped up anything like that again! In this country you can get away with almost anything is your family is in law enforcement…..but it will require a PAWN and in this case was me…..pretty crazy and heart breaking!

  93. on 01 Nov 2012 at 11:00 amRaychel

    It’s amazing how many people leave comment’s about Andrew most people like him my question is why? My comment is Andrew is a double talking woman beater yes he likes to beat momen You know what I am talking about Andrew. be careful karma is a funny thing.

    Andy Galeshahi must be doing something right. He’s part owner of SearchPro Systems of Nashua, national digital marketing firm, and his partner Jey Spencer is sticking up for him, publicly. Maybe Andy Galeshahi has the kind of attitude it takes to grow a company and be successful. Good people doing bad things or bad people doing good things? What does it take?
