I have been rather quiet, yet working behind the scenes, since I was alittle ill and quit smoking. However I would like to report that for the first time ever, something that I was taught in school some 40 years ago, actually was true.

I was told that the pen was mightier than the sword, I understood it to mean that more can be accomplished with your words than with any act of violence. I have reaped the rewards of this statement.

Honestly I am quite tired of being screwed. That may not be the nicest way to say it, but it applies to just about all business of today. I mean it in the sense of employment as well as consumer purchase of cheap items, being overcharged and underpaid and generally being used.

I had a problem with a specific product that I purchased over the internet, I believe it was not the chemical content but the quanity of the product that caused my denture to split in half. I did post  a hub to show the damage, and to keep other people from having to borrow money to have a new denture made, which is costly, and time consuming and painful to the individual.

I did request a full refund of the product and I wanted to be paid for my new denture, I did not cause it to break, their product was the cause. I even went as far as giving the company a time limit before I would post a blog. Ignoring me is probably worse than actually dealing with me, and after 3 strikes they were out.

I posted the blog, and as I found out rather quickly, the blog created a heck of a stir for this company, and I received what was fair compensation. Keep this in mind I was unable to chew any food from October 31, 2010 to January 2011.  I was telling the truth, yet I was being ignored.

So I thank the power of the Hub for helping me speak the truth, and show the truth in living color. I violated no laws, spoke the truth and the pen was mightier than the sword!
