I was reading one of our local papers today (for real estate ads... only reason I pick up a newspaper now-a-days) and came across what I thought was an absolutely amazing advertisement. Evidently, the Oregon Department of Revenue is trying to persuade smokers to not evade paying taxes on their smokes when purchasing through the internet. Here is the ad:…

Update 6-16-05: The service written about below is no longer functional. I've stopped the service for lack of time to devote to it. Instead, check out Payloadz. They are a great service for hosting ebooks and it's tightly integrated with PayPal. ------------------------------------------------- I've been trying to hold this as long as possible, but I just can't be silent any longer.…

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you know my mantra is "creating value in exchange for money" is what we entrepreneurs do for a living. I've just read a great example of what entrepreneurs do for society and how they do it. We can trace every single standard of living increase in our society to the actions…

I've created another fundable action over at fundable.org. Another cool t-shirt. This time for us bloggers. American bloggers, specifically. Remember, if we don't get enough people to contribute within the preset time frame then everyone's payments are automatically refunded and the fundable action is not carried out and cancelled. You can see my other fundable action going on here. Anyway,…

I've discovered a pretty cool service wherein you can create a "fundable group" and then invite people to join the group. If the group gets enough people to join, it is automatically "funded" at the end of the preset period of time. If it doesn't get enough people to join within the preset time frame (set by the person that…

Are you one of my young readers? If so, here is a short and sure fire way to stay out of poverty in the USA. While guest hosting Rush Limbaugh's radio program this morning, Walter Williams said something similiar. But this is my version: 1) Graduate High School 2) Don't have children until you're 30+ years old. When you do…

Last Sunday, the NY Times had an article on their front page. It was the latest installment of the tired saga... "Mr. Rich is a Boogey Man Because He's Getting Richer." Here's the Democrat propoganda article. I've written about this in so many ways, I think I'll let someone else much more qualified than I am to explain it. Larry…

I've written about this before, but it's come back to me in spades after reading this bull crap. This has happened to me, as well. At Walmart, no less. The first outfit that offers professional portraits where a family can come in, have a 30 minute session with a photographer, then receive the digital pic files that were just taken,…

I was going to the store today and came to a four way stop that ALWAYS has someone at the corner holding a sign, begging for money. But for some reason, this time, no one was there. So that got me to thinking. I realized that I had NEVER seen a migrant or immigrant worker on the corner begging for…

I don't know what I'd do without my toll free phone service. I have 6 toll free phone numbers all accessible via an online webpage. The service I use allows me to create marketing campaigns and track them geographically. I can change the ring-to numbers in real time and I can block calls from certain parts of the country. I…

I recently started another blog to chronicle the demise of the daily newspaper. But it soon became apparent there need not be any specific blogging on that topic since it's becoming such common knowledge and with so many outlets covering the most important of news regarding the demise of the newspaper. I subscribed to a Google newsfeed based on keywords…

I've finally gotten around to commercializing an idea I wrote about a while back having to do with Post-itŪ Notes. I've done some experimenting and have found amazing results advertising a special to my customers via a custom printed 3" x 3" post-it note. I recently sent out our new catalog for Great American Collectibles. Here's the post-it note (left)…

I just learned a good lesson in blog ethics. If you want to go on a diatribe about something, you better check to make sure what you're about to explode onto is justified. I just deleted a post of mine that linked to what I thought was material given to kids in MA about gay sex... etc. I'm not going…

It seems someone who takes treasonous acts, no matter how long ago they occurred, very serious. A theatre owner in Kentucky has refused to show the movie Monster-in-Law because it stars Jane Fonda. In case you didn't know, she has been unapologetic for giving aid and comfort to the enemy during the Vietnam War. Here's Hanoi Jane laughing it up…

Newsweek screwed up big time. Here's what I just wrote to Newsweek in cancelling my subscription. I recommend all subscribers do the same thing. We need for US publications to error on the side of AMERICA if they truly believe in the prevailing good of our intentions and actions across the world. If they don't, that's fine... but they shouldn't…

In my previous post, I wrote that the poor in this country aren't getting poorer because of anyone but themselves, for the most part. I would like to qualify that statement by saying that those who are handicapped or cannot fend for themselves are by definition, not the people I am talking about. If the government should help anyone in…

If I had to pick one mantra from the left that is the most annoying of them all, it's the "rich getting richer, poor getting poorer" schtick. Of course, it's true. We WANT our society to get richer and richer. But if someone who's poor is getting poorer, it's their own damn fault.But we need to define our terms here.…

In 1936, after 5 years of hardly any business to speak of, a drug store owner in Wall, SD got an idea. (I guess it was his wife’s idea.) He went out to I-90, the major highway that went by Wall, and put up a billboard offering free ice water at their drug store in town. The rest is history.…

I did a little fun prognosticating on who the new Pope would be a few days before enclave started. I was predicting Bishop Tettamanz' because of his "Olive" connection. If you haven't already read about it.. read this page on the prophecy of Malachy and what he says about this new Pope (which he said hundreds of years ago.) He…

I just spent a good two hours posting one of my better and more detailed posts in recent memory and while switching between "Preview" and back to see what the HTML rendered version looked like (I was finished!) Blogger just up and deleted about 80% of my entire post. Just like that. Bam. Gone!There's gotta be a better way, Blogger.…

Link to article.Scientists Create Remote-Controlled DemocratsYale University researchers say their study that used lasers to create remote-controlled wacko Democrats could lead to a better understanding of overeating and violence in humans.Using the lasers to stimulate specific brain cells, researchers say they were able to make the Democrats jump, walk, flap their arms and even drive SUVs.Even headless Democrats could still…

I literally had to read this asinine statement three or four times:The 9th Circuit Court has now ruled that threatening to assassinate the President of the United States is protected speech under the First Amendment.I'm just beside myself with anger, contempt and downright disgust. How about this for free speech, 9th Court asses? Perhaps if someone were to say in…
