What is BBE or ITEX?
I'm pretty sure Alan Zimmelman is used to people embarrassing him on YouTube and on the Internet. HOWEVER, you are a reflection of ITEX and right now you are reflecting badly on them, especially by not paying your property taxes and denying your members due process. However having found the Business Watch Dog group who has a considerable amount of things that ITEX has done to wrong people, I am not surprised Alan is getting made fun of by Adam Green.
More and more people are going to be searching for information about ITEX and ending up here reading about what a douche bag Ronnie Graham of ITEX Raleigh is. It's cool because we all can use a good laugh.... for the next 20 years. See this website is going to be so unique that its just going to catapult to the top of the search engines. Geez. What the fuck were you thinking Ronnie? Why'd you have to be such a douche bag? I tried to discuss things with you, then you ran off like a coward. I had to have Spencer as a witness, you were already threatening me.
In public relations, spin is a form of propaganda, achieved through providing an interpretation of an event or campaign to persuade public opinion in favor or against a certain organization or public figure. A group of people who develop spin may be referred to as a "spin doctor". Essentially, the term 'spin' is a way of referring to techniques that 'spin-doctors' employ such as rhetorical ploys to have an effect in influencing people's (potential voters, opponents, the media) opinions.
The First Amendment also protects the use of hyperbole and extreme statements when it is clear these are rhetorical ploys. Accordingly, you can safely state your opinion that others are inept, stupid, jerks, failures, etc. even though these statements might hurt the subject's feelings or diminish their reputations. Such terms represent what is called "pure opinions" because they can't be proven true or false. As a result, they cannot form the basis for a defamation claim.
Pressure on people - people on streets
Turned away from it all like a blind man
Sat on a fence but it don't work
Keep coming up with love
but it's so slashed and torn
Why - why - why ?
Love love love love love
Insanity laughs under pressure we're cracking Can't we give ourselves one more chance
Why can't we give love that one more chance
Why can't we give love give love give love give love
give love give love give love give love give love
'Cause love's such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to care for
The people on the edge of the night
And love dares you to change our way of
Caring about ourselves This is our last dance
This is ourselves
According to the ITEX website, ITEX barter is also called, The Cashless Marketplace. It is a leading marketplace for cashless business transactions in North America. ITEX processes more than $250 million a year in transactions through 22,000 member businesses managed by 95 franchisees and licensees.
ITEX IS ABOUT TO GET SQUASHED LIKE A MOUSE.
Let's look at ITEX's Alan Zimmelman, who I don't have any comment on. I don't know the guy, I know you pay him a bunch of money to use ITEX company's name. I'm sure you're in his back pocket, and I DON'T mean literally or in a negative context, I just mean his loyalty is to YOU and not me. I used to have to protect my employee's from time to time when they screwed up, back when I was CEO, but I have learned a lot since those days. I don't fuck up anymore like you Ronnie Graham, because I don't have to deal with customers anymore. I didn't have to add you to The Dirty, Nik Richie and the "Dirty Army", I don't seek the attention like him. I also do not have to do something really shitty like adding someone to stdcarriers.com. That guy, Cyrus Sullivan, actually made it onto Anderson Cooper's television show, and probably will end up in a lot of trouble shortly, however in the mean time, the Communications Decency Act is protecting both of them. Personally, I think he and Nik Richie are idiots for taking that route, but that's his life and choices. In fact I think you and Nik Richie both have a lot in common, you are both cockroaches.
That leaves $21,650. I fed seven people, including myself. Ronnie Graham, you’re still a douche bag. Today was Mother’s Day, I should have gotten some flowers from Lisa Dee's Florist shop in Raleigh, but my neighbors and I went to Tyler’s Taproom in Durham for a late lunch - early dinner. The server was I think he was a guy, it was questionable. The total bill was $112.35, and like any sneaky server, the gratuity was added into the check, because it was a party of 7, but when a server fails to point that out to the customer in the hopes of getting “DOUBLED TIPPED”, that’s shitty. Having worked in the restaurant business as a server, and being a customer, having seen it happen then and now, still amazes me about the lack of ‘being up front’ that it is included in the check. Sure, they are under no obligation to tell you, but it’s the right thing to do. The food was delicious, I had a pork barbeque sandwich, a French dip sandwich, a breakfast burrito which was a disappointing. It was all egg, with a good portion of bacon but only 3 piece of bratwurst. The kids had a Belgian waffle, cheese quesadilla, and chicken sandwich. We also had two desserts which the Peanut Butter Mousse was amazing. Oh wait I paid with BBE money for that transaction which I still have $7,000 left of, so I still have the full ITEX amount left. Hahahah, Fuck you, Ronnie Graham.
Today I exchanged $200 in barter money for $150 in cash. The barter money was used to pay Doug Portnoy, a Raleigh attorney, for a friend of a friend who had a criminal charge. The charge was null-processed. If the person doesn't get into any trouble for a year, the charge will come off of his criminal record. See Ronnie Graham, you dumb ass, I keep using my barter money to better the friends and family and even MANY COMPLETE STRANGERS in my life. You don't have to acknowledge the fact that you are a bitch, because I am acknowledging that fact is actually my OPINION of you!
Today I got my teeth cleaned by the best Raleigh Dentists,Carolina Dental Arts in Brier Creek. I put up the business sign at the Carolina Dentals Arts on Capital Blvd. I spent $508 for Jamie and me to get full dental exams, and even oral cancer screenings, which came back negative. I got a free rechargeable Sonicare toothbrush and she tooth the free teeth whitening kit for new dental patients. Knowing that my wife, is a cancer survivor, and her mother died of cancer, and knowing that cancer is a deadly diseases that causes so many people so much pain, it actually is surprising to hear me say, that I hope you get cancer and die a slow miserable death Ronnie Graham, as Dennis Leary says, “No Cure for Cancer”. It's a shame that someone so innocent like Derek K. Miller had to die from cancer, and douche bags like you run around in the free world, creating problems for people.
Tonight I took my neighbor's son and my family to The Q Shack in North Hills. Man, there is no better place to eat meat than there. If it were my business I would have called it The Meat Shack instead of The Q Shack, kind of like The Burger Shack in Toronto. In any case, I had a three meat platter (brisket, turkey, and sausage) with two sides. The wife had a brisket salad. The kids had a burger and sausage kids meals which came with a cookie. In the end, the total cost of the transaction was paid with ITEX dollars. That was some damn good food, Ronnie Graham.
We went to The Pickled Onion for dinner tonight. I'm not giving Greg Sunday a link, because he doesn't really need it, or deserve it, after his bogus verbal complaint to you all which he eventually recanted and we still do business with each other. Our son spent the night at a neighbors, so free baby sitter. YAY! Time to go blow some barter money. Had two beers and a delicious prime rib sandwich, while the wife had nachos and a pair of pints. The food was certainly better than Blinco's, what food isn't better than Blincos really? The bill was $35 and we paid with an ITEX check. Jeff the bartender who has known us for a few years now, was as cheerful as always, and a die hard Red Sox fan, I'm sure he was hating the fact that he had to work while the Boston Red Sox were playing the New York Yankees on the flat screen televisions all around him. Hey Jeff, if you talk to Ronnie Graham, tell him I said he's a douche bag, and the potato soup was phenomenal. The Pickled Onion was having a pig pickin' the following weekend, and I was actually looking forward to attending, but I missed it. I should have set a reminder in my email.
Told all the neighbors kids, we'd get a limousine on barter and go out to dinner soon too. Get this shit, the kids made me pinky swear that would keep my promise to get them a limo on barter. I told them it was a done deal. The kids are stoked. I also have been planning business trips on barter to Dallas, Texas and Atlanta, Georgia all through ITEX to scout out future territories for the fence companies that I help contribute to.. The limousine ride will be the hummer stretched limo from Blue Diamond in Raleigh, on Monday for Memorial Day weekend. Don't worry, Ronnie Graham, I will be adding plenty of photographs and more information as it arrives.
I had dinner at Jumpin' Jonny's in Brier Creek, the fries are killer. Literally, they are like boardwalk fries, I could taste the heart attack, if you were addicted to them. Them greasy boardwalk fries. America, land of greed and obesity. I fortunately suffer from neither. Too bad for you, Jumpin' Jonny's quit ITEX and you had to refund all of the money to all of the people who had bought gift certificates to their restaurant.
A steak and cheese with mushrooms. We also shared with the other neighbors. I fed 3 children and 3 adults. So far I have spent barter money on 11 DIFFERENT PEOPLE who I don't owe anything to. 5 kids and 6 adults. The story continues. I can't wait to spend some in Toronto either.
Today I met Chris Higgins with Perimeter Fence Company for lunch at Character's Quarters in Garner, NC. The food is always amazing. I had some of Chris' ribs, and a pork barbeque sandwich which rival's the Q Shack. The total bill for everything including 2 beers for each of us was only $58.35. I paid $55 in BBE barter money. That brings the list to 12 people who I have spent barter money. Are you two morons finally understanding that I don't care about money? I work to make money, especially barter money, to spend it on other people, because that is what makes me happy, is making other people happy. Ronnie Graham, I hope you get drunk at Blinco's and choke on your own vomit, but make a full recovery, so you can suffer the rest of your life, maybe even end up homeless. Does Roseann work, except when she is doing bullshit for you?
Tonight I took 6 children in a limousine to dinner at Character Quarters. Did you really think I was going to go to Blinco's? Anyways, I took 3 adults along with myself. The limousine cost $600 in barter plus $150 in cash, I assume to offset some of the gasoline costs. Dinner was delicious and cost $250 which included a $40 CASH TIP to the waitress, who did an amazing job. Altogether, $1,000 in barter money was spent, but giving these kids a memory that will always be captured in their minds, and by this photograph.... and knowing that Ronnie Graham is still a douche bag.... PRICELESS. We tipped the limo driver $40 CASH as well. The complaints about the limo ride were that they obviously are trying to cut costs and not pay to fix things inside such as the lava lamps, the air conditioning stopped working at the end, and the TV only plays movies, which we were not informed of until we had already left the house. And as I write this experience up, I realize we requested the H2 Hummer and were given the Excursion. That leaves $20,046.44 in barter money to spend. Don't worry I will be hitting up Atlanta, Toronto, Dallas, and Florida soon.
I think the biggest problem that people have with me is that I'm CREATIVE, I'm smart, I'm young, and I'm successful AND ambitious. I'm giving Chris money to go to Carolina Dental Arts in Brier Creek to get his teeth finished being fixed. I texted him the phone number earlier. I hope they still are giving away free Sonicare Toothbrushes to new patients.
I can't change the past. But I produced a lot of good work for people. Decks that people complained about to try to get out of paying for it. I had a photograph somewhere, it was gorgeous. It was an octagon and I loved building that thing. It was flawless in construction. Next time you want a tool box, BUY one from Wal-mart, don't get one built out of pressure treated lumber. SERIOUSLY, I still have $19,116 and some change left. I am in Toronto right now, but it's not looking like I am going to get to spend any barter money up here. I don't have a car and couldn't find any women to take me to the Toronto ITEX office to spend any of the barter money. I did pay for a Red Sox/Blue Jays game to take a new friend to go to. 3rd row seats, NOT on barter. I will just have to wait. Don't worry, I will be back up in Toronto before the 12 months are up, and get another chance to spend some of our ITEX barter money there. NOW, I'm off on my ITEX vacation, where I am traveling non-stop to see what I can see.
