The Decline of American Values

The last few weeks have shown the true colors and results of the Tea Party Coup of the Republican Party. From "Legitimate Rape" by Todd Akin to the Tommy Thompson's staffers sending emails suggesting attacks on Democratic candidate Tammy Baldwin's sexuality will win them the race, to Sen. Scott Brown's staffers display of pure racism against Elizabeth Warren; all we're seeing is Racism, Race-Baiting, Homophobia, and a pure disdain for the poor that the Republicans created on purpose so they could make President Obama look bad.
And now I'm hopping mad.

I have a co-worker who adheres to Tea Party views. While that is of course his right, it is awfully ironic. He has a daughter who is Autistic and receives nearly $700 a month in assistance from the government because of it. He receives Federal Tax Refunds that exceed the amount he pays in throughout the year through payroll deductions. This makes him a part of the 47% that Mitt Romney clearly dismissed and has intense disdain for. Yet this friend of mine cannot stand Obama and is going to cast his vote for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. He also hates Obamacare, but actually already benefits from it. He is, essentially, voting completely against what would be best for him and his family. Under Myth and Lyin', he'd LOSE the money his family receives for his daughter's autism. This would put him even further below the poverty line. Before he received this money for his daughter, he didn't have water for nearly a year because he could not afford to replace the well. So why would he vote for Romney/Ryan? It makes NO sense to me. There is something deeper and darker going on in America that would cause a man like this with struggles like he has vote for someone who will, in no uncertain terms, make his life more difficult. Unfortunately, I believe I know why now.
Misinformation. Low Information. And, sadly, Racism.

This is deeply disturbing. Depressing. A loss of hope.

I voted for Obama. I do NOT get all my payroll tax deductions returned to me, simply because I am not married. It sure the hell isn't because I make a lot.

8 common myths about health insurance reform

1. Reform will stop "rationing" - not increase it: It’s a myth that reform will mean a "government takeover" of health care or lead to "rationing." To the contrary, reform will forbid many forms of rationing that are currently being used by insurance companies.

2. We can’t afford reform: It's the status quo we can't afford. It’s a myth that reform will bust the budget. To the contrary, the President has identified ways to pay for the vast majority of the up-front costs by cutting waste, fraud, and abuse within existing government health programs; ending big subsidies to insurance companies; and increasing efficiency with such steps as coordinating care and streamlining paperwork. In the long term, reform can help bring down costs that will otherwise lead to a fiscal crisis.

3. Reform would encourage "euthanasia": It does not. It’s a malicious myth that reform would encourage or even require euthanasia for seniors. For seniors who want to consult with their family and physicians about end-of life decisions, reform will help to cover these voluntary, private consultations for those who want help with these personal and difficult family decisions.

4. Vets' health care is safe and sound: It’s a myth that health insurance reform will affect veterans' access to the care they get now. To the contrary, the President's budget significantly expands coverage under the VA, extending care to 500,000 more veterans who were previously excluded. The VA Healthcare system will continue to be available for all eligible veterans.

5. Reform will benefit small business - not burden it: It’s a myth that health insurance reform will hurt small businesses. To the contrary, reform will ease the burdens on small businesses, provide tax credits to help them pay for employee coverage and help level the playing field with big firms who pay much less to cover their employees on average.

6. Your Medicare is safe, and stronger with reform: It’s myth that Health Insurance Reform would be financed by cutting Medicare benefits. To the contrary, reform will improve the long-term financial health of Medicare, ensure better coordination, eliminate waste and unnecessary subsidies to insurance companies, and help to close the Medicare "doughnut" hole to make prescription drugs more affordable for seniors.

7. You can keep your own insurance: It’s myth that reform will force you out of your current insurance plan or force you to change doctors. To the contrary, reform will expand your choices, not eliminate them.

8. No, government will not do anything with your bank account: It is an absurd myth that government will be in charge of your bank accounts. Health insurance reform will simplify administration, making it easier and more convenient for you to pay bills in a method that you choose. Just like paying a phone bill or a utility bill, you can pay by traditional check, or by a direct electronic payment. And forms will be standardized so they will be easier to understand. The choice is up to you – and the same rules of privacy will apply as they do for all other electronic payments that people make.

The information above is from the White House. My personal research into this shows that every claim above is correct, all of the myths are just that, myths.

The wilder the claims from the lobbying groups, the better the Reform will probably be. Please use the Retweet button below to share the word on Twitter.

Cloaking & Protecting Your Affiliate Marketing

So you have finally stepped into the world of making money online. You too, like the others, have decided to start with the affiliate programs. Also, you must have heard that it’s not a big deal to make good money with affiliate marketing, provided you choose the right programs and do some strategic planning while promoting your affiliate products. So far so good.

Whether you are promoting other people’s products or promoting your own products – that doesn’t matter because after all it is nothing but your own business and your means to earn good money. So whichever be your case, I am sure you would not want to leave money on the table and invite others to steal your share of profit.

Even though the industry of affiliate marketing is pretty competitive but if you are cautious and are strategic in your marketing techniques then, it could be very profitable for you.

Take a close look at the industry, you will see that not every one who gets into affiliate marketing is successful. People who are doing well leave no room for failure and take all security measures and understand its importance.

Yes! Security is one of the key factors in affiliate marketing. If you do not adopt proper security measures, then your business will be at high risk. One of the most important way to restore security is to protect your affiliate links. Do not take them for granted. A bit of carelessness on your part in regards to affiliate links may cost you a lot of dollars.

Do you know the long complicated links that you send to your prospective customers not only look convoluted but they can create a lot of problems too! If you send such an affiliate link to your customers, then the smart ones will definitely figure out that you are promoting someone else’s product and they would rather visit the parent company. Also, if your link does not function then your customers have to type a really long URL into the browser, which will definitely put him or her off.

You could be a victim of even a worse situation. What if some devious Internet pirates steal your affiliate links and replace them with theirs. If they do that, then you get no commission at all.

Did I scare you off with all of the above possibilities? Well, that certainly wasn’t my intention. I just wanted to open your eyes and state facts that actually happen in the world of Internet. It happened with me until I came across ViralURL , that brought a revolution to my online ventures.
