I once walked in on the tail end of the conversation of a company raffling a big ticket item. I overheard an exchange about their predetermined winner. I was more than a little shocked. To some degree the charitable deed was muddied and fixed. I walked away with a sour taste in my mouth and new perspective on the character of that group! I distanced myself from their parties!

Recently I tried to help an acquaintance win a contest by voting for his video. Along with several other friends my family spent hours and days trying to elevate this new fathers numbers by voting frequently for a much deserved creation. There is no doubt this new father spent countless hours photographing and editing a wonderful video for a contest he had entered with a promise he had every chance to win. A contest that could change his life for the better!!
Friends conferred back and forth as they voted his number up! Every time he surpassed his main competitor the other guy would quickly and oddly surpass him. As we monitored the other fellow we suspected he was buying votes, about fifty at a time!! Each time we surpassed him slowly and legitimately....he had a barrage of votes that dropped our contestant into second place within a few moments.

Close to the finish of the contest our hopeful was 300 votes ahead. It took a lot of persistence and love to get each and every vote. When we were blitzed in two minutes the other guy stole the finished with five hundred votes in one fell swoop!

Sadly many of us try to to live as ethically as possible, doing the right thing, but there is always someone more determined, willing to undermine us at any cost to fly ahead of the game without conscience! Thankfully there is Karma to even it all out!!
Have you ever been surprised by a persons
outright gall to do something dishonest?
