Yahoo! Finance reporter Andy Serwer recently sat down and interviewed Charles Koch, the current chief executive officer of Koch Industries, one of America’s largest and most profitable companies. During the interview Mr. Koch responded to questions about current presidential nominees in both parties, and described would he would like to see the White House and the federal government do in the future.
Here are some key points that Charles Koch made during his Yahoo! Finance interview at the EY Strategic Growth Forum that took place in Palm, Desert, California this November. Mr. Koch mentioned four things that he considers high priority this election season that will see two term president Barack Obama leave office. The first thing Charles Koch said is that he wants the government to stop its irresponsible spending. He believes that the current spending done by Washington will lead to a financial crisis and disaster in the future. Mr. Koch highlighted the 100 trillion dollar and growing by the day debt the the United States government has and numerous unfunded liabilities that are a financial disaster waiting to happen.
The second thing that Charles Koch stated as a top priority was the elimination of a two tiered society. He is referring to the growing economic gap between the haves and the have nots. You have people at one end of the extreme who are fabulously wealthy, and than you have people who are poor and destitute and are dependent on government welfare. Mr. Koch believes the growing economic gap must be eliminated for the good of nation.
The third priority of Charles Koch should be the elimination of corporate welfare, which is directly tied to the two tiered society that Koch believes America currently has. Companies need to be responsible, held accountable for their actions and pay their employees fair wages. The low wages paid by companies to workers and their lack of responsibility results in corporate welfare that promotes a two tiered society and dependence on the government for survival.
The fourth priority laid out by Mr. Koch was a change in foreign policy. The Obama administration has done a poor job in foreign policy. Mr. Koch believes that the United State’s foreign policy should be changed so that it makes Americans safer. The current policies just don’t do that.
Mr. Koch also stated that he has not officially endorsed any candidates yet that are running for office, although he considers himself a “classical liberal“. He stands by the principle that the government should not run people’s lives, but just lay out the rules and enforce them when necessary.

A few months ago, I was clipping coupons from the Sunday newspaper. I came across a coupon for Beneful Dog Food, I am always looking to save some money and I was not really happy with the dog food I was currently feeding my black lab. I went to my local store and found BenefulDog Food with Beef and used my coupon for $2 off, which certainly was cost efficient! I read the ingredients and I was pleasantly surprised that I could get all this nutrition in this dog food and an affordable price. Just about a week after feeding my dog Beneful Dog Food with Beef, I noticed a difference in my dogs coat, it was so shiny and soft! I also realized he did not seem to be having upset stomach episodes. I was a very pleased dog owner and so thankful I found Beneful as my dog is much happier and I feel good feeding him something so healthy that he just gobbles down! Then next time I went to purchase dog food, you bet I went straight for the brand Beneful! This time I noticed that there were so many flavors to chose from for my dog! I selected Beneful Dog Food with Salmon! I thought he would love that and how awesome that I can feed him some fish in his diet! Once again he gobbled it right up, I read the ingredients again and was pleased to find that Beneful did not contain a bunch of fillers like other brands! I really felt like a better pet owner and that I was truly giving him the nutrition he deserves. Next, I decided to try Beneful Wet Dog Food with Chopped Blends. How yummy does that sound! I went with beef, tomatoes, carrots, and wild rice. Wow! The price was amazing, I can’t believe they can pack all of this into a container of wet food for such a low price compared to other brands of dog food that carry similar nutrition content. I felt like I did not have to find a second job in order to feed my dog what he deserves. He certainly loved the wet food and I feel good adding this in as well! Last, I bought the Beneful Wet food Beef Stew flavor. My happy pooch enjoyed that very much! Also, the wet food comes in such earth friendly packaging! Such little waste afterwards and these can even be reused! Amazing! I certainly am a happy dog owner who feels like I am feeding my dog food that should cost a ton of money, yet is easily purchased on my one salary income!

Those who watch Sergio Cortes’ videos when he performs are more than thrilled to see his amazing performances as well is the fact that he looks so similar to Michael Jackson. Even though many have fallen in love with Sergio because of his mannerisms and his dead-on impressions of Michael Jackson, many still wish that the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, was still here. Michael passed in 2009, and Michael’s death was so sudden and unexpected that it threw the entire world into a period of mourning that lasted for months if not years.
Although it helped many to play Michael’s music after he passed, it just wasn’t enough for those who were truly mourning him. For some, it’s a good idea to seek out someone who is very similar to a person who died, so the person can get comfort from their tears and anguish over the person who died. Many started looking to Sergio Cortes because not only is he a great impersonator but he’s so similar to Michael Jackson that it’s uncanny. Many could easily have mistaken Sergio for Michael Jackson when the Michael was alive because that’s how much he looked like the star.
Although many were saddened by the death of Michael Jackson, Sergio Cortes was a great help in the healing of the hearts of many who were devastated by Michael’s death. Sergio performed a show that would make him famous worldwide because of his great impersonations of Michael Jackson. Sergio has a singing voice that is high enough to hit the notes that Michael himself seemed to claim as his own, especially when Michael was singing lead in the Jackson Five group. Sergio is really embodying everything that used to be Michael Jackson, and Sergio even brings tears to the eyes of many who miss Michael Jackson dearly.
Not every Michael Jackson impersonator is good enough to gain international fans, but Sergio has. Sergio lives in Brazil, but Sergio was born in Barcelona, Spain, and from coast-to-coast he’s well known as the absolute best impersonator of Michael Jackson. The fact that Sergio looks like Michael and can perform exactly like him as well, it makes him the absolute best at what he does. Sergio continues his practice of being a Michael Jackson impersonator, and he has many followers on social media websites as well as many loyal fans from all over the world.

They are also learning via presentations through Slideshare and other channels of Urbana’s, like Facebook, Instagram, and Crunchbase about the different ways to use recycled goods.
The recycled goods are not just the typical paper but think about metal re-purposed into different holiday ornaments. Jeans made into the nicest softest blankets you can find.
