The 'Amway' mob knows when to hold 'em, knows when to fold 'em

I don't know if 'Rocket' and 'Joecool' are poker players or fans of the American country singer, Kenny Rogers, but I'm sure they worked out a long time ago that the 'Amway' Lord Haw Haw (exactly like 'Amway's' aggressive echelon of attorneys in the recent Pokorny RICO lawsuit) is bluffing.
Although he's obviously a stone-faced professional who never blinks (and who apparently never sleeps) the arrogant Mr. Steadson has got absolutely nothing in his hand. Indeed, the Unbeatable Royal Flush which Mr. Steadson steadfastly pretends to hold (24 hrs per day), has been completely fabricated in 'Amway Diamonds' at the direction of the billionaire bosses of the 'Amway' mob. Furthermore, the 'Amway' Lord Haw Haw knows that this crooked deck of 'Amway' cards will not stand up to rigorous, independent scrutiny.
Interestingly, when 'Amway's' attorneys' own Unbeatable Royal Flush in Diamonds was about to be called in the recent Pokorny RICO lawsuit (because the plaintiffs' unflinching attorneys had laid out several millions dollars of their own funds to force the billionaire bosses of the 'Amway' mob into laying their crooked cards on the table to be scrutinized by a real judge) they folded, and allowed their opponents (whom they knew to be holding the real winning hand) to take an easily-affordable $155 millions pot, rather than going all-in and losing everything.
One can almost imagine the grinning patriarchs of the DeVos and VanAndel clans (back in 1978) taking their inspiration from the Kenny Rogers hit, 'The Gambler':
'You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em,
Know when to walk away, know when to run
You never count your money, when you're sittin' at the table
There'll be time enough for countin, when the dealin's done.'
In reality, at any time during the previous 50+ years (if they had only realized that they were being bluffed) agents of the US government could have sat down at the table with the billionaire bosses of the 'Amway' mob and forced them to go all-in. That would have taken the grins off their faces.

Joecool thinks Mr. Steadson (IBOFB) is bluffing. He "claims" to have built a sizable Amway business in the past, but curiously gave his precious business away in an apparent divorce settlement. Since then he claims he has not actively built an Amway business. He seems to know how the business works but will never disclose what his current level or status is, more than likely because he has achieved nothing. His only confirmed achievement was a 3% (100PV) recognition on an Amway Australia website.

Despite appearing to be somewhat intelligent, he cannot grasp that a business where only a small fraction of 1% make money, is not a good idea for the masses. And worse, the fraction of 1% who make money, often do so by exploiting their faithful downline.

If he gave away his ?sizeable? Amway business, then he hasn't got much to complain about. He won!

I think Steadson is smart enough to know, he just chooses to make this his little niche in life for whatever reason.

For someone so proud of his Amway involvement, he sure has a tough time talking turkey and getting to the facts about his accomplishments in Amway.

He falls remarkably short on facts when it involves where actual consistent profit is achieved through the sale of products.

I admire.....nothing about his efforts to salvage Amway's reputation.

He has not demonstrated HIMSELF that Amway is an achieveable business.

So how can he defend it? Poorly it would seem. Amway is still declining in North America.

Steadson is in my opinion, helpful to the critics. His clever manipulation of words immediately breeds distrust with whomever he is conversing as is shown is his various defenses all over the internet.

Keep up the good work Dave! In spite of my contempt of your attitude & arrogance, I must reluctantly consider you as ASSet to my position on all things Amway.

When you think about it, defending Amway is like defending the lottery as a good way to make money. While Amway is not a game of chance, the miserable bottom line results are similar.

Imagine defending the lottery as an income opportunity by saying you didn't work hard enough to be able to choose the right numbers. You didn't follow the system exactly as it was intended.

Oh well you lost thousands in the lottery but it seems like you are a nicer person and a better father.

And thinking about giving away a business in a divorce? If Amway had residual income for life with the chance of being diamond and sitting on the beaches of the world sipping cocktails sure beats spending countless hours defending Amway pro-bono.

Realistically, I think if Mr. Steadons really had a ?sizable? Amway business and the rewards were so gteat, wouldn't he have given his ex wife everything else to keep possession of his Amway business?
