"andrew rohan" Discussed on The Way I Heard It with Mike Rowe

"Got so now i. He's a spy behind enemy lines if he gets caught. Yeah so let. Let's be clear. Andrew rohan was the real deal. He was a stud. He did what he was asked to do. And by all accounts he did it with very little whining or complaining. The fact that fleming the guy over on history net spent four thousand words clearing that up. I think that's great. But really in the original essay that hubbard wrote it was just a parenthetical. These things are not the point. The brain is this some guy named fleming goes no no no no no no. That's not the point now. Might be your point. But i have another point which was cool because now in my world some guy named tim johnson on my facebook page says none another. No no wait a second. Remember his letter to me is based on the fact that he thought i went to a meeting. Based on a conversation. I had with bill whittle last week on the podcast and he thought my presence at that meeting which might very well have been attended by some conservatives would therefore negate my ability to tell the story of a work ethic scholarship recipient through my foundation. Because in tim johnson's world a conservative. Can't do a good thing with regard to the working class right. So all of these assumptions are all baked together. Once again at all distills into this prison of two ideas. But there's room for everybody. There's room for mr fleming to take exception with one paragraph in hubbard's peace and there's room for read something by a commandant in the marine corps not long ago who basically said look. It's time it's time to retire. This essay which used to be one of their default goto instances of leadership and writing. and now. they don't wanna do it anymore..

"andrew rohan" Discussed on The Way I Heard It with Mike Rowe

"Dude. You've been here six months in you're frustrated because we haven't closed the skills gap and so the generation today. They're they're not. All snowflakes are not all selfish. Monday are impatient. And they they wanna see the needle move. Everybody wants to see the needle move. The question is how do you lead this person versus that person. How much guidance do you provide. Hubbard didn't wanna provide any. He wants to hand a letter to rohan and know that the job is gonna be done. Well guess what so do i. You're my ruin. You know you always get it through the hoop now. You're a huge pain in the ass when it comes to questions. There's a there's an icy oh you need to know but get it done. I was gonna say i am. I am not a good role in man. I asked a lot of and listen. That was the first thing. I said what i was taking my walk this morning and i told you is you know this. This thing is from march dila switzerland. You know it is. It's filled with holes. That had you know the way. He paints hovered. Paints it Row in walks into mckinley. Office and mckinley says i need to get this message to garcia and he goes okay great and he just takes the letter and leaves. It's like how many garcia's are there. How did he know that. It's at the height of of the war. I mean it hadn't wasn't at the height of the war was but right at the beginning of the war. You know the war between spain. And and the insurrectionists in cuba was going on and and america's about to enter the war everybody knows that collects. Garcia is a general somewhere on the other side of cuba. That that's all baked it now. Look you're right all right. You're also a pendant but you're right this. This story is wildly lacking in detail. In fact i should say now if you if you really want to read a thorough telling of what rohan actually accomplished to a history net dot org i think History net dot org guy named fleming writes about four thousand words on. What really happened now. Chuck you're right. Hubbard left out massive chunks But if you go back and look at what he actually said. He said how he puts the letter into the pouch. How he gets into an open boat how he arrives on the shores of cuba how he traverses hostile territory to deliver the missive. None of those things are important right right. And then he goes on to to take that popular story of the day and bend it into his own agenda but the way a lot of other people heard it. It's very very very very different. And you can read all about it on the web but the fundamental truth is indisputable andrew. Rohan was real. Yeah kinley had an ad junk to a guy named wagner i think was a colonel wagner. Who who told roman what to do. Technically i don't think there was actually a letter. I think it was an oral message was an oral message And i think that rohan didn't go straight to cuba. I think he went to jamaica. Mak- i yes. Yeah yeah and then he met a handler and the handler. Four days later got them through. A gauntlet of lucia's these spanish fighting. How do you remember all this. That's really impressive. Then they get to the near shore of cuba and then the odyssey begins and it wasn't odyssey it took time and it was dangerous as hell and and he finally got there. And then hubbard doesn't even mention rowen's gotta get back and getting back from cuba. That was also a bloodbath. Because what happened while he was there. Giving the message no with somebody assassinated or the war of the united states got into the war..

"Lieutenant named andrew rohan who was asked by president mckinley to deliver a critical message to the leader of the cuban insurrection. During the spanish american war a general called garcia this was very dangerous undertaking but in the essay. Hubbard doesn't dwell on the details of rowan's harrowing journey through cuba instead he uses rowan's initiative to bemoan a conspicuous lack of work ethic among the masses. He then begs the reader to consider not just the plight of the employees. But also the plight of the employer like i said a rather extraordinary plea from a former socialist anyway thirty years later when i wrote the sweat. Pledge a message to garcia was very much on my mind because back in two thousand eight many employers in this country were saying the same thing that albert hubbert was saying a hundred years before that they couldn't find employees willing to take the initiative even at the height of a recession in two thousand nine and rising unemployment. Millions of good jobs were going on filled today. Twelve years later. The situation appears even worse according to the b. l. Ls there are no less than ten point. Five million open positions in this job market. Most of which don't require a four year degree ten and a half million and yet we continue to push as the best path for the most people student debt has now eclipsed one point seven trillion dollars. Employers are struggling to find trained workers with the necessary skills and our government is literally paying people to stay home as i was writing. My reply to your trenchant questioned him. A headline appeared on my computer announcing that a mcdonald's in oregon is now hiring fourteen and fifteen year old kids at fifteen dollars an hour because no one over eighteen is interested. It's the very thing elbert hubbard wrote about in eighteen ninety nine a general unwillingness to take the initiative and the endless search for those who do now is a message to garcia an appropriate thing for me to share on a labor day. Many will say no including chuck the producer of this podcast..
