2018 - Celebrating 26 Years of Fuller Brush Success

I maintain my own inventory and can usually supply you with products not found elsewhere.
Closeout & Overstock bargains here.

Fuller shut down Oct 31, 2017 until new owners take over in 2018 - I still have my own inventory.
Jan 5, 2018 - Larry Gray finally gives us an update on the new owners (Hotline 1-800-282-1171). Fuller Brush was sold to Galaxy Brush LLC of Lakewood NJ (note that location since there is a different Galaxy Brush in PA.) What about us? They can't be bothered with us anymore. He says "SOME" distributors may be allowed to sell the products. No more details until Feb 15.

Larry Gray & Roland Rhoades 5/15/07

Larry Gray (rt), the head of Fuller Brush Distributor Services, visited me (in blue) in Maine 5/15/07.
We discussed the business and the future for about 6 hours, treating me to lunch.

 Don't let this come true. Whether you are shopping for Fuller Brush or anything else, please buy American wherever possible.

 - Thank you. 99%.  see Bernie Sanders memes below.



Some things are inherently political, and that is the only reason I post this here. It affects Fuller Brush business, as Fuller is economically pressured into marketing some Made in China products. I will not actively market those products.  Look for the Made in USA label on our websites and in stores. Thanks. - Roland Rhoades

I want to say that Fuller Brush does not understand TWO things. (or they DO, and they feel they are too small to fight it.)

1. Made in China means they diverted jobs from the Americans they are trying to sell to. If Americans don't have jobs, they don't have money to buy products. I understand the Catch-22 that Fuller is in, trying to stay competitive with the hundreds of "big corporations" doing this. We need a Congress who also understands this. I find the Republicans to be the worst in upholding the "freedom" of corporations to do as they please and not pay their fair share of taxes, but most Democrats certainly don't deserve any awards either. It is hard to have backbone against the corporations buying your campaigns.

2. What exactly does Made in the Peoples Republic of China mean?  What is bad is the human rights aspect, communist or not. Dictatorships are both left and right wing, or sometimes neither. There probably are some factories in China with fair working conditions, but with the magnitude of abusers, how can anyone tell the difference?
You all know about that 47% comment in the last election. Well, the guy who recorded that did NOT record it for that reason; that was just gravy. In his interview on The Ed Show, what got his dander up and making him decide that the world needed to hear this first hand, was Romney's such obvious pleasure with the Chinese factory he was buying and touring, because of their productivity measures. They hired only young girls under 25 who were desperate for an income before they were able to marry. They were "protected" by armed guards so they wouldn't get distracted from their work; they were not allowed to stop work to look up at visitors to the plant; and the factory was surrounded by high fencing topped with barbed wire to prevent them from escaping. Romney said the fencing was to keep other people from breaking INTO the factory to work!!!!!, and I have a bridge to sell you.

Until people worldwide care more about people than saving a few dollars, the corporations will own you and the downward spiral will accelerate. So.... vote with your pocketbook, but also with your actual VOTE, after an analysis of every candidate's position on corporate rights vs human rights. Vote for Bernie Sanders supporters.

Looking for my personal Maine Family-history website?

Violence, even well intentioned,
always rebounds upon oneself.
- Lao Tzu

Through violence, you may 'solve' one problem,

but you sow the seeds for another.
- Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama

Peace cannot be achieved through violence,
it can only be attained through understanding.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.
- Isaac Asimov

I object to violence because
when it appears to do good,
the good is only temporary;
the evil it does is permanent.
- Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi

The world has always been in an uproar,
and it always will be.
Choose Peace. Choose to live with Peace.
Choose to interact peacefully with everyone -
especially those whose instinct is not to be peaceful.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Thank you to my Fuller-Stanley distributor Julius Rensch of Ohio for these words of wisdom.

Bombing Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Syria, ... might sound like fun, but it solves nothing and only creates more enemies. And then the question is "Then what?" when you have solved nothing. Keep bombing? How do you stop without leaving in defeat? The better man fights with his brain. - Roland Rhoades

2016 Statement by Roland Rhoades, Fuller Brush Company Top 10 Nationwide Distributor, Recruiter, & Trainer:

"Bernie Sanders is a Positive voice for truth and justice.  Millions who have given up on Republicans & Democrats are supporting Bernie against the voices of ego, hatred, insults, bigotry, and divisiveness. A reason to vote again. I am a Berniecrat."
"Bernie is trustworthy. Both liberal and conservative pundits have noted that you can pick any issue or cause, and you can trace Bernie's consistency back decades in politics and social change, no Johnnie-come-lately changing positions as it suits their politics. The adult in the room. First time voters are potentially voting in November if they have someone worth voting for, and many people have noted they have boycotted elections for 20 years because there was nobody they trusted."

My wife, a 65-yr-old woman, Hillary's base, has always wanted a woman for President, but she is open-minded enough to actually listen to both what Hillary and Bernie are saying, and how they say it, and switched to Bernie and voted absentee in the Maine caucus.

Bernie as an independent has consistently been opposed to international trade agreements that enable corporations to move jobs to China, whether it was Bill Clinton's NAFTA agreement that the Republicans approved, or Obama's TPP proposal that Hillary helped draft, but now says she's opposed to it after Bernie called her out on it.  If American workers don't have good jobs and pay, then there is nobody to buy the products they want to sell.

I find, and so does the world press and leaders, that the Republicans' hatred and vitriol are an embarrassment to the United States on the world stage.  I see Bernie and Berniecrats as the positive future leadership of the Democratic Party, just as a new negative philosophy took over the Republican Party.

For more information about Bernie Sanders for President, check the many Bernie Sanders groups on Facebook and the official website BernieSanders.com

Feb 2017 - YES, I am still a Berniecrat. The movement lives on, trying to make the Democratic party once again a party of the working people. Too bad the election was all about two corporate narcissists.
