About Joe Messina

Joe is a no-nonsense, conservative realist. He is not interested in “what if?” or “we could have!” He is interested in hearing both sides and has no problem taking on taboo issues with real questions looking for real answers. Racism, religion, and politics are all open season for topics, and he’s happy to offer up his opinion in the process! Joe is an engaging speaker mixing a healthy dose of sarcasm with the cold, hard facts, interacting with the audience, taking questions, and often playing “devil’s advocate”… just to make you to think! Actively engaged in community, church, and politics for well over a decade, Joe enjoys the reputation of being a man of integrity and ethics. He has had several successful businesses and held several executive positions with various Fortune 1000 companies. He is often sought after to teach classes his “black and white breakdown” of business ethics. If you like to “stir the pot” a little and you don’t want to hear any more political correctness, Joe is your guy! Just name a topic… politics, religion, racism, or most any current event. Joe can be heard daily across the airwaves and over the internet on several stations.

  1. Joe, your take on ‘average’ came straight from my heart. It seems that ‘on the whole’ as a nation, we have become to quick to ‘accept’ anything other than blatant failure. Of course, our acceptance eliminates all chances of excellence…I lost my father when I was but nine,but he left a lesson that has stayed for over 70 years. “Even if you’ve done well, ask yourself if there was more you could do. Remember ‘anyone’ can be average.”…In a literary class I read that “average is an insidious monster inflicted on society by ignorance” It was from a 15th centuary Italian poet whose name I never could pronounce or remember, yet it stuck with me. Excellence does not come to you…you must go to excellence.

    I pray that in 2014 & 2016 that our vetting will reach this this level We may not reach perfect, but we won’t know if we don’t try. We must not ‘stay home’ because ‘our’ candidate isn’t on a ballot’
    If we want ‘qualified’ people, we have to ‘seek & find’…fyi Timmy’s father worked with Barry’s mother

    And, honestly, I think Barry is doing a great job of destroying our Grand Nation by following Valerie Jarrett’s instruction to the letter 1 YIKES!!
