Ability refers to a person’s capacity for doing what they say they are going to do. To what degree does a person only promise what they are actually capable of doing? Does that person actually follow through on promises or do they say all the right things in the moment only to fail to show up later?
The answer to questions like these demonstrates how much a person has the ability to be trusted. By contrast, untrustworthy people can be charming and well-meaning, but they are unreliable in that they overpromise or lack follow-though.
Integrity means that a person has a sufficiently well-developed value system that they tend not to give offense in the first place, tend to self-correct when they do offend others, or are at least willing to generously hear and respond proactively when they are told they have been offensive.
A person with impaired integrity doesn’t tend to care that he has given offense and becomes automatically defensive if told he has been hurtful in some way. Such a person gives apologies grudgingly and rarely displays the humility necessary to learn from missteps. People who behave this way can’t be trusted because they don’t have a well-developed moral sense. They tend to do what they think they can get away with or manage to explain away and only repent under pressure — and then, only half-heartedly.
People with integrity, on the other hand, see the offenses they commit against others as a mark against their own character, and because they are committed to living out a particular set of values, they work hard to remain faithful to those principles no matter what.
Benevolence refers to the degree to which the person you want to trust has shown you that he or she is willing to work for your good, especially when it has required some sacrifice or inconvenience on his or her part.
A person who is willing to put themselves out for your sake is more worthy of your trust than someone who isn’t. People who lack benevolence could be friendly and charming on the outside, but when you need something, their selfish tendencies come out along with their catalog of excuses.
Even the most irresponsible person manages to follow through occasionally. Even the abusive person manages to say “sorry” or do something nice once in a while. It is our ability to count on a person to demonstrate ability, integrity and benevolence consistently that makes them truly trustworthy. Inconsistently demonstrating the qualities of a trustworthy person is the same as not demonstrating them at all.
Evaluating a person’s ability, integrity, benevolence and consistency versus their unreliability, defensiveness, selfishness and inconsistency enables you to have a clearer sense of how much you can trust someone, in what contexts and to what degree. It can also give you a guide for dealing with those you have a hard time trusting by helping you highlight why and what might be done to resolve those obstacles to trust.
What might be two more traits of people that we can trust?

Dear Family and Friends,
Authentic issues of “Wandervogel Diary,” passed into the afterlife with Dan L. Dailey
in November, 2016.
Being his younger brother of five and a half years, I arrived at Estrella Vista
– originally named the Wandervogelhaus –
on December 11, 2016.
That date is between the birthdays of Dan and David’s only blood-sister, Mary Christine Dailey Schultz Neumann [12-10-1949], and “baby brother” David Arthur Francis Niklas Dailey [12-12-1953].
So in the spirit which is part tradition, genetics, respect, and forward searching,
I am asking diary readers to respond with their best efforts to keep the vision,
mission, goals, and projects of The Redemption Project moving into the right direction.
What Dan L. attempted was never a one-man-job.
He will remain the “face” of the movement and one main source
of inspiration for all of us and many more “movers and shakers” to come. I praise Dan’s assignment of Lone Heron to administer The Redemption Project, which I know I could not be successful leading.
Although I am a writer with great interests in justice, politics, and human development, my focus has been with sports, political satire, public health and safety, and comedy – all kinds of humor, including stand-up entertainment.
I think humor has its place. In The Redemption Project, it needs to be applied carefully,
timely, in the proper situation, among a suitable audience, etc., etc., etc.
Your support of Lone Heron, Dan’s son Henry, and many others working on the project
will be appreciated very much.
Where ever I may be writing my funny stuff,
I will be praying, hoping, and thinking about your future successes.
All the best,
Founder of “The Dailey Sun-Chronicles”
Veterans’ Day Annual Celebratory Event in Northern California – – Remembering Buck’s Favorite Patriots Who He Has Known
There will be a huge 11-11-16 parade this morning in downtown San Jose, California!!!
Not appearing (in any particular order):
- 1st Lieutenant A. W. “Bud” Dailey — US Army 1944-45 in Japan post-war occupation after ROTC training at DePauw University, Greencastle, Indiana
- Captain Donald W. Baker – – US Navy pilot; 1942-45 in the Pacific Theater[Bud and Don are the grandfathers of San Francisco native and Interior Designer Anessa Virginia Dailey; only child of the author*]
- Colonel Lee Roberts – – USAF pilot of U-2 and other intelligencia – – One of many great patriots working at Lockheed Missiles & Space Company and Lockheed Engineering & Sciences Company 1985-92
- What is Nancy doing here?!?
- Lt. Colonel Lloyd “Doc” Holliday – – USAF and modern day manager of Occupational Safety Engineering
- Captain Dick Biggs – – US Navy pilot and modern day Systems Safety Engineer
- Lt. Colonel Homer Brem – – US Army fly boy and modern day Systems Safety Engineer
- Captain [Doctor] Baltis Getzendanner – – Maryland Militia from Frederick County, MD 1775-83
~ written by * D.A.F.N. “Buck” Dailey – – served during the end of the Cold War 1985-92 at Lockheed and a Past President (2000 – 2001) of the Silicon Valley/Palo Alto Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution . . .
Vice President Joe Biden and his father have identified four kinds of American politics:
- Labor Politics
- Religious Politics
- Regular Politics
- Cancer Politics
In a concerted effort to get everyone involved and cooperating on-the-same-page, the Vice President [and I wish Joe would become our 45th President] has coined a “Moon Shots Program” for the Cancer Community.
This Cancer Community appears to be operating in its own individualist self-interest. If only researchers, doctors/oncologists, colleges and foundations, patients and their codependents and helpers, philanthropists, and others would work together to find cures for many types of cancer, we Americans who suffer – and the human race – would be better off.
Joe is not far off by comparing the American effort during the 1960s to a current emphasis on cancer solutions and prevention for our current decade, which has only four years remaining.
The urgency is now to get egos and financial incentives directed toward non-selfish results . . . and hurry before my best friend dies!
As national champion Coach Jimmy Valvano said weeks before his death, “Don’t give up, don’t ever give up!”

A THREE MINUTE PRESENTATION BY D.A.D. TO THE COUNCIL
(The Dailey Sun-Chronicles ~ 12/15/2015 ~ MENLOUGH PARK, CALIFORNIA) –
David A. “Buck” Dailey attended the city council’s last meeting of the 2015 year and suggested that Menlo act more like a city or reincorporate into a town government. Councilmember and outgoing Mayor Charlene “Let them Eat Cake” Carlton was absent and California assemblymember candidate P. Ohtaki was late for this meeting.
Having not received a response from the contracted City Attorney Bill McClure nor any councilmember, on December 24, 2015, David filed citizen’s complaints against five (5) MPPD uniformed officers. There were separate incidents during November in downtown Menlo Park that are documented (MPPD Case # 15-3468 , # 15-3531 , # 15-3661).
On January 4, 2016, David filed three (3) stolen property reports based upon four events between September and December 2015. More data is being sought about the particulars of being without two cell phones and an unmatching set of luggage (Case # 16-27) taken from the victim either along Santa Cruz Avenue or from historic Fremont Park.
- D.A.D. has earned Certified Safety Professional (CSP), Certified Manager (CM), and Registered Environmental Assessor (REA) designations with a M.S. in Public Health and Safety from Indiana University at Bloomington and received two post-graduate certificates from the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC). He supports activities of small business owners, Occupy San Francisco Peninsula, the Sequoia Union High School District, and has also practiced as a legislative advocate in three and as a paralegal in two states.
- On November 10, 2015, D.A.D. announced that he would run for the open U.S. Senate seat.
- On November 2, 2015, D.A.D. attended a community meeting about safety in unincorporated West Menlo Park which was held at Las Lomitas School in Atherton and arranged by City of Menlo Park Councilman Robert Mueller. It was attended by County of San Mateo Supervisor and former Sheriff Don Horsley, the City’s Chief of Police Robert Jonsen, and at least a dozen other City officials. No follow-up on neighbors’ concerns was given, promised, or arranged for a later date. It became apparent that these officials believe the annexation of county-administered lands are imminent; in reality, most county residents are against such action.
- In 1992, D.A.D. lost an U.S. congressional race [to Anna Eshoo who is still employed in the D. C. ~ giving away American jobs locally via visas and green-cards] and in 1994 he tried to obtain more votes than popular Stanford Law Professor Tom Campbell to work in Sacramento becoming a California State Senator for human rights and services. D.A.D. spent over seven years at Lockheed during the Cold War, about seven years after graduation from Indiana University at Bloomington.
- After service between 2003 and 2008 as a California Departments of Public Health and Health Services’ Health Facilities Evaluator, he was illegally terminated and narrowly lost his judicial appeal versus current California Attorney General Kamala Harris, who now insists on running into the United States Senate.
- D.A.D. is a Past President of the Sons of the American Revolution – Silicon Valley Chapter – State Director of the National Safety Management Society, former International Director of Communications for the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE), Past President of three Toastmaster clubs, and officer of two Bay Area chapters of the ASSE.
- Buck Dailey is a publisher, author of books, screenplays, and web-blogs, Obama campaigner during the last two presidential races, comedian and humorist, sports and culinary critic, business administrator, and environmental, health, security, and safety engineer.
D.A.D.’s presentation focus was about better public transportation (SamTrans / Redi-Wheels paratransit / CalTrain) and local police work.
“In Chicago, Protect and Serve is on every police car. I see none of this in Menlo Park,” he stated.
“I was fortunate to buy my first house in unincorporated Menlo Park (in the Las Lomitas Elementary School District – still one of the five best in the entire State of California) in November, 1986.”
David implied that because of poor driving habits, lack of traffic controls and lighting, removal of SamTrans bus services, and a refusal of peace officers directing traffic, that the safety of pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers is at-risk. Engineering and administrative methods by public works or police agencies would alleviate the traffic congestion during the morning commute, lunch-time period, and the long evening commute. Furthermore, the City of Menlo Park has done little to solve their own issues along Willow Road, Santa Cruz Avenue, Middlefield Road, and the El Camino Real.
The Menlo Park Police Department has a public persona that they focus on giving moving violation tickets and parking tickets; doing nothing to help ease traffic congestion. It was pointed out that for a SamTrans Route 296 bus rider to travel from Sequoia Station Redwood City through Menlo Park to either the Veterans Administration or East Palo Alto – it takes more than an hour – almost every Monday through Friday afternoon. SamTrans Routes ECR, 86, and 286 are also delayed.

FYI, his [D.A.D. 4 U.S. Senate] platform includes:
- Restore faith and confidence in federally-managed programs.
- Be reasonable with demands on government and quasi-government agencies.
- Reaffirm ‘States’ Rights’, with the exception of federal adjudication.
- Let county governments work on more important issues that biking. Fund their health care programs without the “middle-man” of state government administration costs.
- Get state police (i.e. California Highway Patrol) to focus on higher priorities than soccer-mom driving?
- Demand that local elected and appointed officials solve their internal problems.
- Protect consumer rights.
- Boycott free newspapers and their advertisers that do not practice ‘responsible journalism.’ Therefore, no fear-mongering, reduce sensationalism, write truthfully and factually, and promote good news.
- Find better means of energy consumption and public transportation.
- Restore regional public transit quality. For example, add Sam Trans/A-C Transit/VTA and improved Cal-Train and BART train and bus services to communities.
- Appropriate funds for employment and retraining of U.S. high school graduates, before offering more green-cards and work visas.
- Ensure proper Veterans Administration benefits, reeducation, and professional services.
- Reform the federal tax code and put space travel ‘on the backburner.’
- Determine an equitable immigration system that encourages the naturalization of citizens.
- Plan to improve education, for both public schools and private entities: A) at home, B) in schools, and C) during after-school activities [i.e. Menlo Park Lyceum]. Educate youth about the “Buddy System” for safety.
- Facilitate air quality boards, clean water agencies, and local zoning commissions revise improved public policies.
- Put an end to the “Yellow Dragon” Asian acquisition of the American land, treasures, and assets. Apply the Monroe Doctrine to fight Communism except for Cuban relations.
- Support elected officials (like the current efforts of California Senator Jerry Hill) who have represented the people (of the County of San Mateo) very well.
- Work with the office of United States Senator Dianne Feinstein before, during, and after 2016 congressional hearings discussing the dreaded houseless populations.
- Endorse that the Americas take issues in prayer to God, first. Then involve clergy, legislatures, social workers, courts, neighbors, and friends.
- Allow Christians to behave as Christians; more will appreciate learning about the life of Jesus Christ, Son of God and the B. V. M.
- Utilize ‘The Brothers’ for issue resolution and decrease stressors on the court systems.
- Elect not an ass but D. A. D. for United States Senator from Northern California in 2016 and support his sports writing at the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics.
- Make housing more affordable, safer, and livable!

Reno Nevada – Shameful Reno, Nevada and Their So-Called Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada (CCNA)
Coast-to-Coast Risk Management
Glenwood Springs, CO 81602-0777
Woodside, CA 94062-2448
Intro: Home is where the heart and body are; therefore the Reno ghetto Record Street neighborhood is home to hundreds of people of mixed races and religious views.
Fact and Question: The Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada (CCNA) have been given 100 grand for the homeless issues. What is this going to be used? I suspect almost nothing will filter down to any homeless people.
Why did the City of Reno do this? What else is the City of Reno doing, if anything?
In my opinion, the City should have given the Resource Center more than $100,000.00.
My experiences with the Roman Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada have all – all – been negative. Furthermore, I assert that they have been using the name of Saint Vincent in-vain!
St. Vincent DePaul Society is not affiliated with the CCNA.
Given my latest moonlighting schedule, I am enjoying a stop at I-HOP on my way to the bunkhouse between 3 and 4 a.m. PDT.
This Thursday, I met a delightful quartet of young adults (they just happened to be black: The lone male reminded me of Jimmy Walker of “Good Times” and one of the women also had family back home in Indiana). Our two tables were the only ones occupied and Patty gave us all terrific service.
Later today I have appointments with two psychiatrists. Imagine at least one of them will recommend therapy or some pill to rid myself of my newly acquired pancake addiction before dawn.
Is there PA meetings scheduled somewhere?
