As you all may or may not know, my main gig is a collectible manufacturing business. We are pretty much apolitical in our holiday lines... very neutral. (Although I do get a bit conservative in my Santa stories.) However, I've recently interjected a bit of politics into our Flaty line. They are designed to be a way to celebrate America's…

My favorite American hating, liberal blogger, Kos over at DailyKos is trying to draw parallels to the map of the US during the civil war period and today's sea of red. This is such nonsense.I'd like to point out some facts that Democrats HATE for people to know about. If you really want to do some correlation, let's get closer…

The dots have finally been put together..."He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983." - Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998"We urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the US Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions [including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi…

I just came across an article on Slate written by a fanatical leftie and it BOGGLED my mind.The writer tells us why Democrats have lost 5 of the last 7 Presidential elections, in her opinion. In it, she goes on and on about the ignorance of conservative America. The ironic part is, the CONTENT of her article is what a…

Maybe someone can shed light here. This blog gets about 200 to 300 visitors a day (thank you everyone). It has a current Alexa ranking of 205,000. However, another site of mine gets about 500 to 700 visitors a day and is only ranked 214,000 by Alexa.What gives? Is it because more visitors who visit my blog have Alexa installed…

It's over and my man has won. Not by the margin I predicted, but as you can imagine, I'm happy anyway.I told myself that if Kerry won, I would suck it up and get behind him 100%, despite my DEEP conviction that he was the wrong person to lead our nation at this time. But this is an important time…

I was looking through some of those real estate little booklets you get for free at the store. As I was leafing through, I couldn't help but notice that EVERY SINGLE real estate agent had their picture as part of their ad page for their listings.This has got to be one of the widest scale mistakes in the branding world…

Since I'm into making predictions on my blog, I'm going to make another one.President Bush will get 57.4% of the popular vote and shock the entire nation that it wasn't as close as everyone thought it would be.Okay... so, there's a bit of a wishing in that prediction. :-) But I do feel he'll win and it won't be quite…

It's the mythical goal of all Americans, it seems. To be a "millionaire." But what EXACTLY is a millionaire? Is it someone who's liabilities deducted from their assets equals $1,000,000? Yeah, I guess that's one definition. How about a doctor who makes $1,000,000 a year in salary and bonuses? Is she a millionaire? Is she the same KIND of millionaire…

Off topic, but very important for this year's election. This is an excellent article written by a liberal Democrat with dual citizenship (British/American) who has voted Democrat (Labour in England) all her life. Read her very compelling argument for why she's marking "W" on her ballot this year.Simply a must read.

I came across a really cool affiliate program. The site sells access to a database of celebrity addresses. I can't think of even one celebrity I want to write to (except maybe Cartman from South Park, but he probably gets way too much mail to answer a poor schlub like me) but I'm sure there are people out there that…

WARNING! OFF-TOPIC!Survey of French citizens resulted in 90% support for Kerry over Bush.Survey of 4,000 full time and part-time US military personel resulted in 73% for Bush and 18% for Kerry.The big problem people have with President Bush is his policy on Iraq, yet the people MOST effected by this policies give him the highest level of support.Conversely, the people…

I was researching some options for storage in our garage. I need LOTS of room to run my business in there and so I needed to get things up and out of the way. I want to use as much of the ceiling area as possible since it's wasted space. (It's a finished garage with an actual 8' ceiling.)I came…

I know Blair and Bush share the same principled style of leadership. I just wish President Bush was able to articulate it as well as Blair. Wow. Blair is an absolutely amazing man and leader. England is extremely fortunate to have him at the helm during these trying times.Here is an excerpt of his recent speech, I'm assuming to Parliament.…

The scary season is fast approaching. I've got an idea you can use to make some money this season.Sell those really nifty costumes. Here's a place that sells all those neat ones like a large piece of pizza and a can of spam. My personal favorite is the one made for a couple. The man is a big electrical plug…

I just saw a link from Drudge that touts Martha Stewart's prison number is going to be 55170-054. So, being the opportunistic person I am, I immediately went to godaddy.com to see if I could register it in dot com form and IT'S ALREADY TAKEN. Can you believe that? Somebody beat me to it.The whois wasn't working when I attempted…

One of my current projects is selling t-shirts with political messages. It's obviously a good time to sell those types of shirts.I happen to be fairly handy with some of the latest graphic programs, so I've designed them myself. I've put an extra touch to them as well. Since I own a collectible business, this is a natural for me.…

I'm sure we've all heard of the immigrant story. How a family of immigrants come from another country, all live in a one bedroom apartment, get menial jobs, save, open a business of their own, all of them work hard while continuing to scrimp... etc, etc.As native Americans (I mean those of us born here, not the indigenous variety) we…

With the explosion of online purchasing, this means there are plenty of packages coming to people's doors with no one home to accept them.Why not become a local private postal delivery person? What you would do is provide your clients a "shipping" address that they can input when they order something to be shipped to them. That shipping address is…

This is a great article about the widsom of staying put in Iraq for now. It's written by a classics professor and military historian. He gives a really good perspective on the Iraq war as compared to other wars in the past.

I just read over at Greedy Girl that Amazon is giving unadvertised discounts to their customers who they know (by way of cookies) are using their new search engine, A9, on a regular basis. It's not much, but it's enough to make people start talking about it, which, in turn, drives more traffic to their search engine. In my opinion,…

About.com has an article with some great entrepreneur quotes. Some of my favorites:"An entrepreneur tends to bite off a little more than he can chew hoping he'll quickly learn how to chew it.- Roy Ash, co-founder of Litton Industries"Business opportunities are like buses, there's always another one coming."- Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Enterprises"I never perfected an invention that I…
