The Best Advice for Enduring this Recession

Even in this tenuous economy some things will not go away. Like eating.

Look at the numbers that came out of the Great Depression.

People will still buy food because they want to survive and thrive – they just want MORE VALUE and BETTER CUSTOMER SERVICE.  Be Different!  Be BETTER!

The kind of job you want to do is an OUTSTANDING one because you will stay busy forever.  The lazy and shiftless and “clever” will not succeed in the long run because they don’t build customer loyalty.

More Common Sense

President Obama might need a little help focusing his laser beam…For five years now, most Americans have told pollsters that they want the government to fix the economy and create jobs. And President Obama promised to focus on that like a laser beam. Many times. Then, like a moth distracted by passing headlights, he chased off after one liberal dream after another: Obamacare, immigration, free birth control, electric cars. This week, he found two distractions from the left’s book of golden oldies: nuclear disarmament and climate change. It’s nice to dream of a peaceful world without nukes. But before we had nukes, we had two world wars. Frankly, I wish Obama would worry less about America having nukes and more about Iran having them. As for fighting climate change, that’s liberal code for higher taxes on energy and even more job-killing EPA regulations. Ironically, carbon emissions are already dropping in the US, thanks to something liberals hate: clean, cheap natural gas obtained from fracking. Americans want Obama to refocus, for the umpteenth time, on jobs. Maybe he could start small by creating a job for a laser beam repairman.

Reasons to hide?  You probably have nothing to hide, but you also don’t need information about your surfing activity sold to interested marketing parties without your knowledge.  Some of the trends and metadata can be used to profile you – especially those concerning hi-tech devices and pharmaceuticals.  For that matter – your activity shows what you were doing on company time (on the company dime) and you don’t need that stuff given to your interoffice rivals, either.

Google tracks you. DuckDuckGo does not. An illustrated guide.

A Very Good Question!!

We believe most Americans would be stunned to learn the details of how these secret court opinions have interpreted Section 215 of the Patriot Act„ As we see it, there is now a significant gap between what most Americans think the law allows and what the government secretly claims the law allows. This is a problem, because it is impossible to have an informed public debate about what the law should say when the public doesn’t know what its government thinks the law says.
