Inside Story – 1st Quarter 2017

The Las Vegas AHR Expo was reputably the largest show ever. It was big enough that I got lost at one time on the show floor.

They told us that more than 60,000 HVAC professionals were in attendance. I believe that was a conservative number; it was jammed. The positive attitude expressed by the crowds gave us hope for our future.

What surprised me was I was the only one at the show who was wearing the red “Make America Great Again” hat. I lost count of the number of people at the show who came to our booth or that I saw, as I walked the floor, who expressed their great approval of my red Trump hat.

I understand that some companies might not approve of one of their employees who would wear a cap, shirt or even socks that promoted any politician. They wouldn’t want to offend anyone.

News flash: showing support for the newly elected President shouldn’t offend any patriot. As I have stated on many occasions, “The biggest business on earth is the United States government.” I want the best businessman at the helm. There are many others who qualify, but none are professional politicians
