The American presidential race is on, and there are various outrages towards what the candidates are bringing out as agendas. The recent criticism has come from a billionaire Charles Koch, who is an entrepreneur and described as a philanthropist. Charles Koch is against whatever that the candidates are campaigning to implement for the people. He is so disappointed that the real issues that are affecting the American community are not addressed, and candidates are concentration on non-issues. It makes him wait a little longer to offer his support in financing the campaign. He is willing to spend an amount worth $ 900 million on the 2016 presidential campaign but not in the primaries.
Charles Koch was born in 1935 to Mary Robinson and Fred C Koch as his parents. He later inherited a business by the brand Koch Industries from his father. Currently, they own it with his brother where they have equal shares in the business. They invested in more product lines and expanded the territory of their father. He is the Chief Executive Officer, co-owner and he chairs the board that runs the company. Both brothers are actively involved in the multi-billion businesses since, David Koch, holds a position of Executive Vice President of Koch Industries.
Charles Koch is always passionate about a liberated society which is free from patronage. He is an admirer of a 19th-century politician who supported the smooth running of the business in any society. The British politician, William Gladstone is his political hero and role model. He is a liberal and will always wish for a society that is free of dictatorship and which supports entrepreneurship in any form as long as it improves the society. Politics is an arm of a stable government, and this must be put on the main agenda tp ensure that politics plays the largest role in improving people’s lives. He is mostly concerned of the campaign taglines that both Ted Cruz and Donald Trump are raising as agendas.
The Muslim community has been in existence for the rest of America’s life, and there is totally nothing wrong to live still with them. Trump suggests that they should be locked out of America and forced to register with the American government. Charles Koch is against such actions because that destroys the free society that we should embrace where businesses should be conducted freely and with peace in the country.

Tom Barnett is the owner of 24 Burger King franchises in Arizona, and recently was awarded “Franchise of the Year” by Burger King corporate officials. The award is given to the Franchise that has the best rating based on safety scores, health inspections, and customer complaints. As a part of the award he received some very nice gifts, including a brand new Corvette and a new Rolex. Barnett felt like he did not deserve these gifts because the hard work that led to the award came from his employees. So Barnett sold the gifts and gave the money to his employees.
Barnett did more than just sell the gifts and give the money to his employees, he also matched what he got for them with his own money and the money of some of his business partners. In the end, he gave away $120,000 to 100 employees, resulting in bonuses that were between $100 and $5,000 apiece.
His philanthropic efforts are similar to those I’ve been reading about in the news from Amen Clinic, but it’s clear that Barnett is a rarity among bosses, especially in the fast food world. His good deeds certainly don’t go unnoticed. Even more evident of the fact is the low turnover rate at his franchise. At the Burger Kings that Barnett owns, the average employee works there for 10 years. In an industry where people often quit after their first day, and many don’t last an entire year, this says a lot about how he runs his business.
