Miracle on 34th Street - Watch Online - Full Movie

Just in time for the holidays! Since The Miracle on 34th Street is adored by so many, I decided to upload it so everyone can enjoy it online this holiday season.

Yep, now you can watch The Miracle on 34th Street online for free! This is the full movie, and it is entirely commercial free. So grab a cup of hot chocolate and some cookies, and sit back and enjoy. Oh, and Happy Holidays from me!!! :)

The Miracle on 34th Street (1955) - Full Movie

About The Movie

The Miracle on 34th Street is the charming story of a Macy's Department Store Santa who believes he is the real Santa Claus - and his efforts to convince a disbelieving world that he really is. Based on the 1947 story by Valentine Davies.

IMDb Summary: At the Macy's Department Store Thanksgiving Day Parade, the actor playing Santa is discovered to be drunk by a whiskered old man. Doris Walker, the no-nonsense special events director, persuades the old man to take his place. The old man proves to be a sensation and is quickly recruited to be the store Santa at the main Macy's outlet.

While he is successful, Ms. Walker learns that he calls himself Kris Kringle and he claims to be the actual Santa Claus. Despite reassurances by Kringle's doctor that he is harmless, Doris still has misgivings, especially when she has cynically trained herself, and especially her daughter, Susan, to reject all notions of belief and fantasy. And yet, people (especially Susan) begin to notice there is something very special about Kris and his determination to advance the true spirit of Christmas.

When a raucous conflict with the store's cruelly incompetent psychologist erupts, Kris finds himself held at Bellevue, where, in despair, he deliberately fails a mental examination to ensure his commitment. All seems lost until Doris' friend, Fred Gaily, reassure Kris of his worth and agrees to represent him in the fight to secure his release.

To achieve that, Fred arranges a formal hearing in which he argues that Kris is sane because he is in fact Santa Claus. What ensues is a bizarre hearing in which people's beliefs are reexamined and put to the test. But even so, it's going to take a miracle for Kris to win.

Total runtime: 46 minutes (without commercials)

Director: Robert Stevenson
Writers: Valentine Davies (story) and John Monks Jr. (teleplay)

The RGB Color Calculator - HTML Color Code Generator

Here's a neat little tool I added that will help you generate HTML colors codes for your blog or website in a snap. With the RGB Color Calculator you'll be able to generate both the HEX code and the RGB values simultaneously.

This HTML color code generator comes in especially handy when you know the HEX code, but need its RGB values - and vice versa. Just type in the numbers, click calculate, and you're all set!

RGB Color Calculator Functions and Features

The RGB Color Calculator is an HTML color code generator that will allow you to:

• Choose HTML colors from a table of colors.
• Choose HTML colors from a list of color names.
• Choose HTML colors by entering their Hex codes
• Choose HTML colors by entering their RGB values.
• Generate Hex codes by entering their RGB values.
• Generate RGB values by entering the Hex code.
• Fine-tune a color's properties.
• Choose HTML colors by name (e.g. "red" or "blue").
• Generate random HTML colors.
• Compare a color to the nearest web-safe color.
• Adjust a color's hue, saturation, and value independently (HSV).
• Adjust red, green, and blue independently.
• Store several colors at the same time.
• Always see the color you're working with, plus its HEX code and RGB values.

You can play around with the RGB Color Calculator here. Hopefully you'll find it to be as useful as I have.

John McCain's Concession Speech Video - Plus Ron Paul

Since I posted the video and transcript of Obama's acceptance speech, I also wanted to post John McCain's concession speech as well. McCain conceded the presidential race to Barack Obama and stated that the Democrat has achieved a "great thing for himself and for his country."

Personally, I think this was one of McCain's best speeches. Perhaps, if he had spoken from the heart like this all along throughout the campaign, the nation would have embraced him fully, and this speech never would have taken place. Who knows.

John McCain Concession Speech Video

Ron Paul On CNN American Morning

And here's Ron Paul. Proving once again that he's the only one in Washington who really has a clue. Undoubtedly, the GOP is kicking itself now for their mistreatment of him during the primaries.

First, they tried to defeat him by paying people to run against him. When that failed, they marginalized him. And when that failed, they made false accusations against him, many times over.

Lastly, came the mistreatment during the Republican National Convention. Whenever Ron Paul delegates approached the microphones to speak, the microphones were cut off and security was called to remove them from the premises. Ron Paul delegates were shut out of the platform talks, as well as every other meaningful discussion.

In my opinion, the GOP got what it deserved for its poisonous deeds. They screwed the pooch big time on this one. A Ron Paul/Barack Obama race would have most likely sealed the deal for Republicans, especially since the economy - Ron Paul's specialty - is what pushed Obama so far ahead of McCain in recent weeks.

Oh, and not to mention that Obama was the second choice for most Ron Paul supporters. Bottom line, the Republican Party had a great and very special opportunity in Ron Paul...but they rejected it. And now, the American people have rejected them.

Barack Obama's Acceptance Speech (Video and Transcript)

In case you haven't had a chance to see it, here's the video of Barack Obama's acceptance speech in Chicago after winning the 2008 presidential election. No doubt, Obama will always "Remember, remember the Fifth of November."

And for those of you who like to read, I've provided a full transcript of Obama's acceptance speech below the video.

Barack Obama Acceptance Speech - Full Transcript

November 5, 2008

OBAMA: Hello, Chicago.

If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time, who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer.

It's the answer told by lines that stretched around schools and churches in numbers this nation has never seen, by people who waited three hours and four hours, many for the first time in their lives, because they believed that this time must be different, that their voices could be that difference.

It's the answer spoken by young and old, rich and poor, Democrat and Republican, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, gay, straight, disabled and not disabled. Americans who sent a message to the world that we have never been just a collection of individuals or a collection of red states and blue states.

We are, and always will be, the United States of America.

It's the answer that led those who've been told for so long by so many to be cynical and fearful and doubtful about what we can achieve to put their hands on the arc of history and bend it once more toward the hope of a better day.

It's been a long time coming, but tonight, because of what we did on this date in this election at this defining moment change has come to America.

A little bit earlier this evening, I received an extraordinarily gracious call from Senator McCain.

Senator McCain fought long and hard in this campaign. And he's fought even longer and harder for the country that he loves. He has endured sacrifices for America that most of us cannot begin to imagine. We are better off for the service rendered by this brave and selfless leader.

I congratulate him; I congratulate Governor Palin for all that they've achieved. And I look forward to working with them to renew this nation's promise in the months ahead.

I want to thank my partner in this journey, a man who campaigned from his heart, and spoke for the men and women he grew up with on the streets of Scranton and rode with on the train home to Delaware, the vice president-elect of the United States, Joe Biden.

And I would not be standing here tonight without the unyielding support of my best friend for the last 16 years - the rock of our family, the love of my life, the nation's next first lady, Michelle Obama.

Sasha and Malia, I love you both more than you can imagine. And you have earned the new puppy that's coming with us to the new White House.

And while she's no longer with us, I know my grandmother's watching, along with the family that made me who I am. I miss them tonight. I know that my debt to them is beyond measure.

To my sister Maya, my sister Alma, all my other brothers and sisters, thank you so much for all the support that you've given me. I am grateful to them.

And to my campaign manager, David Plouffe, the unsung hero of this campaign, who built the best - the best political campaign, I think, in the history of the United States of America. To my chief strategist David Axelrod, who's been a partner with me every step of the way. To the best campaign team ever assembled in the history of politics, you made this happen, and I am forever grateful for what you've sacrificed to get it done.

But above all, I will never forget who this victory truly belongs to. It belongs to you. It belongs to you.

I was never the likeliest candidate for this office. We didn't start with much money or many endorsements. Our campaign was not hatched in the halls of Washington. It began in the backyards of Des Moines and the living rooms of Concord and the front porches of Charleston. It was built by working men and women who dug into what little savings they had to give $5 and $10 and $20 to the cause.

It grew strength from the young people who rejected the myth of their generation's apathy who left their homes and their families for jobs that offered little pay and less sleep.

It drew strength from the not-so-young people who braved the bitter cold and scorching heat to knock on doors of perfect strangers, and from the millions of Americans who volunteered and organized and proved that more than two centuries later a government of the people, by the people, and for the people has not perished from the Earth. This is your victory.

And I know you didn't do this just to win an election. And I know you didn't do it for me. You did it because you understand the enormity of the task that lies ahead. For even as we celebrate tonight, we know the challenges that tomorrow will bring are the greatest of our lifetime - two wars, a planet in peril, the worst financial crisis in a century.

Even as we stand here tonight, we know there are brave Americans waking up in the deserts of Iraq and the mountains of Afghanistan to risk their lives for us.

There are mothers and fathers who will lie awake after the children fall asleep and wonder how they'll make the mortgage, or pay their doctors' bills, or save enough for their child's college education.

There's new energy to harness, new jobs to be created, new schools to build, and threats to meet, alliances to repair. The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep. We may not get there in one year or even in one term. But, America, I have never been more hopeful than I am tonight that we will get there. I promise you, we as a people will get there.

AUDIENCE: Yes we can! Yes we can! Yes we can!

OBAMA: There will be setbacks and false starts. There are many who won't agree with every decision or policy I make as president. And we know the government can't solve every problem.

But I will always be honest with you about the challenges we face. I will listen to you, especially when we disagree. And, above all, I will ask you to join in the work of remaking this nation, the only way it's been done in America for 221 years - block by block, brick by brick, calloused hand by calloused hand.

What began 21 months ago in the depths of winter cannot end on this autumn night. This victory alone is not the change we seek. It is only the chance for us to make that change. And that cannot happen if we go back to the way things were. It can't happen without you, without a new spirit of service, a new spirit of sacrifice.

So let us summon a new spirit of patriotism, of responsibility, where each of us resolves to pitch in and work harder and look after not only ourselves but each other.

Let us remember that if this financial crisis taught us anything, it's that we cannot have a thriving Wall Street while Main Street suffers. In this country, we rise or fall as one nation, as one people. Let's resist the temptation to fall back on the same partisanship and pettiness and immaturity that has poisoned our politics for so long.

Let's remember that it was a man from this state who first carried the banner of the Republican Party to the White House, a party founded on the values of self-reliance and individual liberty and national unity.

Those are values that we all share. And while the Democratic Party has won a great victory tonight, we do so with a measure of humility and determination to heal the divides that have held back our progress.

As Lincoln said to a nation far more divided than ours, we are not enemies but friends. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection.

And to those Americans whose support I have yet to earn, I may not have won your vote tonight, but I hear your voices. I need your help. And I will be your president, too.

And to all those watching tonight from beyond our shores, from parliaments and palaces, to those who are huddled around radios in the forgotten corners of the world, our stories are singular, but our destiny is shared, and a new dawn of American leadership is at hand.

To those - to those who would tear the world down: We will defeat you. To those who seek peace and security: We support you. And to all those who have wondered if America's beacon still burns as bright: Tonight we proved once more that the true strength of our nation comes not from the might of our arms or the scale of our wealth, but from the enduring power of our ideals: democracy, liberty, opportunity and unyielding hope.

That's the true genius of America: that America can change. Our union can be perfected. What we've already achieved gives us hope for what we can and must achieve tomorrow.

This election had many firsts and many stories that will be told for generations. But one that's on my mind tonight's about a woman who cast her ballot in Atlanta. She's a lot like the millions of others who stood in line to make their voice heard in this election except for one thing: Ann Nixon Cooper is 106 years old.

She was born just a generation past slavery; a time when there were no cars on the road or planes in the sky; when someone like her couldn't vote for two reasons - because she was a woman and because of the color of her skin.

And tonight, I think about all that she's seen throughout her century in America - the heartache and the hope; the struggle and the progress; the times we were told that we can't, and the people who pressed on with that American creed: Yes we can.

At a time when womens' voices were silenced and their hopes dismissed, she lived to see them stand up and speak out and reach for the ballot. Yes we can.

When there was despair in the dust bowl and depression across the land, she saw a nation conquer fear itself with a New Deal, new jobs, a new sense of common purpose. Yes we can.

AUDIENCE: Yes we can.

OBAMA: When the bombs fell on our harbor and tyranny threatened the world, she was there to witness a generation rise to greatness and a democracy was saved. Yes we can.

AUDIENCE: Yes we can.

OBAMA: She was there for the buses in Montgomery, the hoses in Birmingham, a bridge in Selma, and a preacher from Atlanta who told a people that We Shall Overcome. Yes we can.

AUDIENCE: Yes we can.

OBAMA: A man touched down on the moon, a wall came down in Berlin, a world was connected by our own science and imagination.

And this year, in this election, she touched her finger to a screen, and cast her vote, because after 106 years in America, through the best of times and the darkest of hours, she knows how America can change.

Yes we can.

AUDIENCE: Yes we can.

OBAMA: America, we have come so far. We have seen so much. But there is so much more to do. So tonight, let us ask ourselves - if our children should live to see the next century; if my daughters should be so lucky to live as long as Ann Nixon Cooper, what change will they see? What progress will we have made?

This is our chance to answer that call. This is our moment.

This is our time, to put our people back to work and open doors of opportunity for our kids; to restore prosperity and promote the cause of peace; to reclaim the American dream and reaffirm that fundamental truth, that, out of many, we are one; that while we breathe, we hope. And where we are met with cynicism and doubts and those who tell us that we can't, we will respond with that timeless creed that sums up the spirit of a people: Yes, we can.

Thank you. God bless you. And may God bless the United States of America.

Black Panthers "Patrolling" Polling Places (Video)

Apparently, Black Panther members (in full uniform) are stationed at some 300 polling places in battleground states. The question is, are they trying to intimidate McCain voters? Judging by this video I just found on YouTube, I'd say it's very possible. What do you think?

The video shows two Black Panther members at a Philadelphia polling place, one of whom is carrying a nightstick, who were reportedly blocking the door. Eventually, the police came and made the one with the nightstick (the one who said, "I'm security." lol) leave the premises.

Black Panthers Outside Polling Places

Now, I'm neither for Obama nor McCain, but I can definitely see how this sort of behavior could scare some people away from voting. But not surprisingly, there's lots of other "funny stuff" happening on this election day as well. In Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, calls from "Democrats For Obama" are being made, informing voters about a fake change of polling location. Gee, how nice.

There are also multiple reports that a Virginia Beach polling location is understaffed, and that people are picking up paper ballots from the floor and casting multiple votes! And in Northern Virginia, it's been reported that "tens of thousands" of military absentee ballots might be missing. Wow, put your life on the line for your country and they'll still misplace your vote.

All this, and a whole slew of voting machines throughout the country that are either malfunctioning, or breaking down entirely. In Richmond, Virginia one precinct had five of its seven voting machines break down. This forced voters, who were frustrated from waiting in the rain, to fill out optical scan ballots instead. Five out of seven, eh? Hmm, sounds like it's time to use another voting machine manufacturer!

Yep, it looks to be another "interesting" presidential election in the Good Ole USA! At this point, I think it's safe to say that the election results will be contested by the losing party if the winner ends up winning by a narrow margin like in 2000.

Hump Day Humor - Bailout Thoughts From Shitcat and Friends

First, let's start with some news...

From the Associated Press: World stock markets sagged again Wednesday as a barrage of weak corporate earnings stoked fears that the government's financial intervention won't keep global economies out of recession.

Duh! I think most of us with brains know that the government bailout won't work. And here's why. But for a deeper understanding of the bailout, I contacted our senior political correspondent, Shitcat, and asked for his commentary. Here's what he had to say about it...

Unfortunately, his intern Barfcat also happened to be nearby when this took place, and Shitcat's straight-to-the-point, "hold-nothing-in" attitude simply proved too much for his delicate, little body to handle...

But wanting further insight, I also contacted our senior financial analyst, Jokercat, for his take on the bailout, as well as on our current political and economic climate in general. His response was, well, sobering...

After that, I definitely needed some cheering up. Unfortunately, Speedcat was out of town, so I headed over to hang out with Cokecat instead. His motto in the last year has been: "Be the government, and you will know."

You see, Cokecat firmly believes that the only way in which one can understand the U.S. Government and its endless idiocy is to become a part of it. I think he's right. And obviously, he's got the part down perfectly...

Thanks cats! You've been very helpful. Let's hope that the morons in charge can have a moment of clarity sometime in the next decade. I know it's a long shot, but one can certainly hope.

Anyway, Happy Hump Day! I hope your week is going well. :)

Make Money with WidgetBucks - $25 Bonus for Signing Up!

WidgetBucks Celebrates 1st Birthday
With $25 Sign-Up Bonus

UPDATE: WidgetBucks is no longer recommended by this blog!!!

WidgetBucks, one of the fastest-growing ad networks, has just completed its first year in business. And to celebrate, they're offering a $25 sign-up bonus for all new publishers. That's right, you'll get $25 in cool cash when you sign up with WidgetBucks.

WidgetBucks is offering this celebratory $25 sign-up bonus until the end of October, so don't wait to take advantage of the offer if you haven't already.

What Is WidgetBucks?

WidgetBucks is an ad network that features CPC (cost-per-click) and CPM (cost-per-thousand impressions) shopping widgets that help you make money fast. The WidgetBucks widgets display the most popular products based on the buying trends of over 100 million shoppers. You choose which types of products you want to advertise, and WidgetBucks does the rest.

The widgets are completely customizable (with over 300 configurations and 256 color schemes), so you can tailor them to fit the look and feel of your blog or website. Here's an example of a WidgetBucks ad widget in action:

How To Make Money With WidgetBucks

There are three basic ways to make money with WidgetBucks:

• CPC, or cost-per-click widget ads - Each time a user clicks on a WidgetBucks ad widget, you make money.
• CPM, or cost-per-thousand impressions - Each time a CPM ad from one of WidgetBucks’ ad partners is shown, you make money.
• WidgetBucks Referral Program - Refer people to WidgetBucks and you'll receive 5% of the commissions earned by everyone you refer. Just another easy way to make money with WidgetBucks.

My Experience With WidgetBucks

My experience with WidgetBucks has been a very good one. I've been using them to make money on this site (and on others) ever since they first launched a year ago. With their combination of both CPC and CPM ad widgets, WidgetBucks tends to outperform AdSense quite consistently each month. But since you can use them alongside AdSense without breaking the AdSense TOS, you don't have to stop using AdSense just to try them out.

WidgetBucks has been going strong for a year now and I've seen nothing but improvements all along the way. They're constantly adding new, cool-looking widget skins, which allows you to continually keep your ad content fresh and engaging. And this, of course, means more money in your pocket.

Bottom line, WidgetBucks is a nice little moneymaker. If you haven't yet tried them for your blog or website, I definitely suggest you do...especially since you'll get a $25 bonus just for doing so. :)

Make Money With WF3D - It's Easy!

Make Money With WorkFor3Dollars (WF3D)

Howdy friends. Came across a new moneymaker recently that I'm very happy with. It's called WorkFor3Dollars (WF3D), and it's been paying out like crazy.

Update (February 1, 2011): It's been a long time since I first joined WF3D, and my earnings STILL continue to rise each month. Yeah!!! This one definitely kicks ass, and you'd be a fool not to get in on it. Check out WorkFor3Dollars here.

Make Money with WF3D...

I'm not gonna write a long blog post about this since I already wrote one here on my Yuwie blog. But I will say that WF3D is definitely worth checking out. And if you have any doubt, be sure to check out all the comments my Yuwie friends left about it. You can also see their WorkFor3Dollars stats and earnings right on my page (Note: Their stats and earnings are outdated...I should probably update them soon lol)...

How WorkFor3Dollars Works

Real simple. WorkFor3Dolalrs is a 3 x 15 forced matrix (with spillover). It costs just $3 to join (hence the name) and pays you for every personal referral. WF3D also pays you for every referral that one of your personally sponsored referrals puts in. WF3D pays this down through 15 levels.

On the product/services side, WorkFor3Dollars comes with a List Builder (real handy for all you marketers out there!) and a whole slew of digital products and informative e-books. All the e-books come with resell rights, so you can sell them for a profit, too, if you like.

WorkFor3Dollars Payment Proof

As with all make money programs out there, one always has to worry about scams and not being paid. So, is WorkFor3Dollars a scam? No. The good news is that WorkFor3Dollars is not a scam. It has paid people on time...every time. For example, here's my latest WorkFor3Dollars payment proof...

Receiving payment is fast and easy. WorkFor3Dollars pays instantly and automatically through AlertPay. A lot of moneymaking programs pay "Net-30" or "Net-60," which means that each earning must mature for at least 30 (or 60) days before it is eligible for payment.

For example, one of the programs I use to monetize this blog is AdBrite (AdBrite is one of my favorite money making programs). It's a great program that has never let me down (it even outperforms AdSense much of the time). But the one thing I don't really like about it is that it pays Net-60.

So...if I make $2,500 dollars this month with AdBrite, I won't actually be sent my check for that $2,500 until January. Oh well.

And as the old saying goes, "There's many a slip twixt a cup and a lip." Meaning, there are many things that could go wrong between now and then. My AdBrite account could be banned - and I'd never see that money. But with WorkFor3Dollars, I don't have to worry about that. My WF3D earnings are automatically transferred into my AlertPay account. No fuss, no muss. The cash is in my account instantly. Just one of the many great things about WorkFor3Dollars.

Helping Friends Make Money with WF3D

Over on Yuwie, I'm a pretty popular character. So I'm also helping folks make money with WorkFor3Dollars by listing their pics and their WF3D referral links in my WF3D blog on Yuwie. And I'm more than happy to do the same for anyone who signs up on our team. So if you join WF3D, you don't have to go through my referral link...

Why the Government Bailout is Bullshit

Like Poop From a Bovine's Anus,
The Government Bailout is Bullshit!

Note: I may be updating this post shortly. This is really just a 1st draft I wrote up in order to get some things off my chest...really quickly.

I'm so PO'd right now over this complete waste of our taxpayer dollars that it's not even funny. Anyway, here' are my current thoughts...

The Facts Behind the Bailout

The government bailout = socialism for the rich...with YOUR money.

The recent economic bailout (with our tax dollars) is complete and utter BS. And just as what they're saying actually caused the economic crisis/collapse is complete BS, so is the action our elected government morons officials have taken to "fix it."

The Real Cause of the Economic Collapse

As much as many of us would like to believe, it's not just the crooked people of Wall Street, with their golden parachutes and their "I can do whatever I want 'cause I'm a rich and important top executive" attitude that led to this economic crisis here in the U.S. Oh, no, no, no.

The real problem is our current way of doing things. And here are two prime examples:

1.The federal government sticking its nose where it doesn't belong (Exempli gratia, the financial markets).
2. The Federal Reserve printing money out of thin air (which devalues our currency).

A Deep Look Into The Problem's Core

Since the creation of the Federal Reserve in 1913 (no thanks to The Federal Reserve Act, ch. 6, 38 Stat. 251, enacted on December 23, 1913, 12 U.S.C. ch.3), which was signed into law by then President Woodrow Wilson, the U.S. dollar has lost over 90% of its value. And it’s lost around 37% of its value in just the last seven years. Both shameful and frightening, I must say!

In an article entitled, "Gold and Economic Freedom," former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan wrote:

"The excess credit which the Fed pumped into the economy spilled over into the stock market - triggering a fantastic speculative boom...The speculative imbalances had become overwhelming and unmanageable by the Fed... In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation."

But here's the funny part: That article, by the former Federal Reserve Chairman, Alan Greenspan, was written in 1966. Yeah, no kidding! And it was written to describe the era leading up to the Great Depression. Gee, sound familiar? Sure it does! And it could definitely be applied to today to describe the grave consequences of having the Federal Reserve...many of which we're seeing again, right now.

Bottom line, the Fed creates these economic bubbles, and the bubbles always burst…just like we’re seeing now.

If we want any sort of a proper and stable future for this country, the United States of America, we need to abolish the Federal Reserve immediately! In addition, our misguided government needs to stop meddling in the financial markets. And here's why...

Sticky Fingers That Just Don't Fix

Fact: Government interference in the financial market is what causes artificial economic imbalances in the first place. Additionally, it makes it virtually impossible for market corrections to take place quickly and easily (as they would in a truly "free market").

Ultimately, this guarantees economic crisis. Again, just like we’re seeing right now.

The bottom line is that we need to get these imbeciles out of office ASAP. And just as importantly, we need to get rid of the Federal Reserve. If we don't, we'll continue to see more of the same...and America WILL eventually collapse.

Fallen Empires - Is America Next?

The undeniable fact is that all empires and great nations fall due to fiscal, financial reasons (the devaluation of their currency, etc). And what we're seeing right now are the first signs of a falling empire. If things don't change, the U.S. will fall too.

Unfortunately, none of our so-called "leaders" are willing enough, or even brave enough to admit that. They want us to believe that America, in all its glory, is untouchable, indomitable and infallible.

But remember, the Romans thought that too. And of course, their empire fell.

For, it only takes a quick study of history and economics to realize that if we don't make some drastic changes, America will undoubtedly be in severe trouble as well. And feeding more money (printed out of thin air) to companies that couldn't operate profitably and responsibly in the first place, is NOT the answer!

It's OUR money, dammit! And we shouldn't just stand by aimlessly and watch as it's flushed and wasted down an endless drain...and funneled into the pockets of the very crooks who are a part of this economic mess. It's time to wake the F up America! And it's time to do what needs to be done!

Hump Day Humor - Chuck Norris Facts and Will Ferrell

It's been a little while since I did a Hump Day Humor post on this blog, though I'm not exactly sure's one of my favorite types of posts to do.

Anyway, to start things off for this week's Hump Day Humor post, here are some Chuck Norris facts to break tickle that funny bone of yours.

Chuck Norris Facts

1. There's no "ctrl" button on Chuck Norris' computer keyboard; Chuck Norris is always in control.
2. Chuck Norris can sneeze with his eyes open.
3. Chuck Norris destroyed the periodic table; the only element he recognizes is the element of "surprise."
4. It takes Chuck Norris just 10 seconds to watch 60 Minutes.
5. Chuck Norris played Russian roulette with a fully-loaded gun...and won.
6. Superman wears Chuck Norris pajamas to bed.

Some Will Ferrell Comedy

Personally, I'm not a huge Will Ferrell fan. I think some of his stuff is really funny, but I also think he's got a fair amount of material that's just plain redundant and stupid. Nonetheless, here's a funny video clip in which Will Ferrell plays his classic character Ron Burgundy for ESPN. This one is definitely chuckle-worthy.

Watch Online: Vice Presidential Debate - Joe Biden and Sarah Palin

In case you missed the 2008 vice presidential debate between Joe Biden, the senior United States Senator from Delaware, and Sarah Palin, the governor of Alaska, you can watch it online right here.

The 2008 vice presidential debate took place at Washington University in St. Louis on October 2, 2008. Total video length: 90 min 40 sec.

2008 Vice Presidential Debate - Palin and Biden

And in case you also happened to miss the 2008 presidential debate (or just want to watch it again) between John McCain, the senior United States Senator from Arizona, and Barack Obama, the junior United States Senator from Illinois, you can watch that one online here as well.

The 2008 presidential debate took place at the University of Mississippi on September 26th, 2008. The initial topic was supposed to be foreign policy, but with the recent economic collapses, McCain and Obama spent a good 45 minutes discussing (or should I say not discussing) the current U.S. economy and their supposed economic policies and plans. Total video length: 93 min 03 sec.

I haven't had a chance to watch the vice presidential debate yet (see update below), but I did watch the presidential debate in full. And let me just say that I was not all. In fact, I'm even more worried and concerned for this country. Ron Paul was our only hope, but the media screwed the pooch on that one. Stupid bastards.

Update: I'm half way through it now and I want to gouge my eyes out with a pencil!

The Daily Show with Jon Stewart - Watch Full Episodes

Missed an episode or two of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart? Well, have no fear. You can always catch up on your favorite satirical news television show online on Hulu. Hulu offers free streaming video of TV shows and movies from several different networks and studios.

Hulu has full episodes of over 400 TV shows and over 100 full-length motion pictures from content providers such as: NBC, FOX, Warner Bros. Television, PBS, USA Network, Oxygen, The Sci-Fi Channel, The SPEED Channel, Universal Pictures, 20th Century Fox, Lionsgate Entertainment, MGM and Sony Pictures.

The streaming video content on Hulu is of course ad-supported, but most ads only run for 15 seconds or less and appear only a couple of times through the length of a program. That means you can watch a full-length half-hour television show in about 22 minutes flat. Ya gotta love that!

Anyway, and back to The Daily Show, here are two recent episodes. Enjoy!

Sept. 24, 2008: Actor Aaron Eckhart tells Jon about the film "Towelhead."
Sept. 25, 2008: "Face the Nation" host Bob Schieffer tells Jon about his new book, "Bob Schieffer's America."

IntenseDebate Acquired by Automattic

Some news in the blogging world today...the blog comment system IntenseDebate has just been acquired by Automattic (the company behind WordPress). IntenseDebate is currently revamping its servers and features and has temporarily moved back into a private beta during the overhaul.

I got the announcement today from the fellas at IntenseDebate. Here it is in full:

"It's a very exciting day here at IntenseDebate! We're extremely stoked to announce that as of today IntenseDebate has been acquired by Automattic. That's right, IntenseDebate is now an Automattic Joint!

Don't worry, IntenseDebate isn't going anywhere. IntenseDebate is still the perfect comment system for your blog or website regardless of the platform it uses. We will still enhance and encourage conversation on your blog while we increase your reader engagement and community. We're just going to be a whole lot bigger!

You can expect our service to be quicker and offer a more robust feature set. We will continue to improve our service for all blog platforms including Blogger, Typepad, Movable Type, Tumblr, and others with more on the way. You can also look forward to advanced integrations with other Automattic products like Gravatar, Akismet, and of course WordPress.

This is good news all around, especially with our new distribution possibilities. Now we have the opportunity to put IntenseDebate in front of more eyes than ever before. You can expect more blog readers to already have IntenseDebate accounts and you will be able to comment on more blogs than you can imagine!

We love your support and couldn't have gotten here with out you! Thanks again for being so awesome and helping us spread the word! You can look forward to even more comments and page views in the future! Feel free to check out our acquisition post and leave a us comment.

Congratulations to everyone!
The Fellas at IntenseDebate"

Why It's Good For WordPress

This acquisition is definitely good for WordPress. It's no secret that WordPress has been in need of an updated comment system for quite some time. Now that need will no longer be there.

WordPress 2.7 will include some of IntenseDebate's comment system features by default, one of which includes threaded comments. I use IntenseDebate here on this blog, and I can tell you from firsthand experience that threaded comments rock!

WordPress 2.7 will also include a plugin that will integrate many of the other great IntenseDebate features, such as commenting across multiple blogs. With these new features and additions, I think WordPress users will be very happy indeed.

Why It's Good for IntenseDebate

On the IntenseDebate side, this acquisition means that you'll be seeing IntenseDebate a lot more often as the joining of the two outfits opens up distribution possibilities. This means that you should be able to use your IntenseDebate profile on a lot more blogs. A definite plus.

There will also be tighter integration with some of the other Automattic joints, such as Akismet (Automattic's distributed and learning anti-spam system) and Gravatar (their globally recognized avatar).

The IntenseDebate name and logo will remain the same, and you'll still be able to use the IntenseDebate comment system on many of the popular blogging platforms (TypePad, Blogger, Tumblr and Movable Type), with even more blogging platforms to be added to the mix.

Happy for the Future of Blogging

The folks at Automattic have already done some great work on projects like Akismet,, and bbPress, not to mention the many WordPress plugins they've written (Google AdSense for Feeds, Secure Admin, Secure Admin, No Self Ping and Batcache, to name a few).

They have an excellent track record and I'm really excited to see what the future of blogging holds for everyone. This is an acquisition that I am definitely pleased to see, so long as the two services remain separate, as they say they will.

Remaining "separate" is very important for many bloggers. For example, I use Blogger here for this the last thing I'd want to happen would be losing my IntenseDebate comment system due to some "corporate" BS. I guess we shall see. But so far, so good.

A New Breed Of Autoresponder: Auto Message Setup

Posted by Tom Kulzer (AWeber CEO)

The concept of the follow up autoresponder revolutionized Internet Marketing. Now, “Auto Message Setup” promises to bring the field an even greater degree of efficiency.

This recent innovation lets experienced marketers painlessly transfer marketing know-how to their entire downlines. A marketer can now provide each of his downline representatives with a follow up autoresponse system that is already packaged with the marketer’s pre-written messages.

The result? Just a few minutes of work on the part of an experienced marketer, and each of his reps is set up with the same tried and true marketing messages.

Case Study: Marketer Matt and the New Breed

For example, take a look at the case of a fictional network marketer named Matt M:

For years, Matt has been successfully marketing All Natural Pharmaceuticals using a follow up autoresponder. In fact, much of his success can be attributed to the set of seven messages e-mailed to all of his potential customers. Matt has carefully crafted those messages over the years, and they’re really great.

Recently, Matt has been trying to pass what he’s learned along to his downline representatives. He explains his marketing principles over the phone, and he knows that several of his reps pass his follow up messages around amongst themselves.

However, Matt finds that his pearls of wisdom rarely survive this ‘telling and retelling’ intact. He knows his reps aren’t getting anywhere near what they could out of his knowledge. He wishes there were a way to harness today’s technology, and put it to use for the greater good of his downline…

Enter Auto Message Setup

Using an Auto Message Setup system, Matt’s downline reps can order their own follow up autoresponse accounts that are already packaged with Matt’s pre-written messages. They can reap the fruits of Matt’s experience with ease.

Each rep will customize Matt’s messages for himself by logging in to his new follow up autoresponder account, and entering his own contact information.

Here is Matt’s original autoresponse message:


Thanks for stopping by the All Natural Pharmaceuticals web site today! We hope you come back soon!

Best Regards, Matt M. 918 Awl St.

Natural, PA 22314

Notice that the message greeting uses a variable, (LEAD NAME). The variable ensures that each of Matt’s leads will receive a message personalized with his or her own name. Notice, also, that Matt’s name and address are at the end of the message.

Case Study: Downline Dan and the New Breed

Dan is one of Matt’s downline representatives. He’s ordered his own follow up autoresponder through Matt. Since Matt is using Auto Message Setup, Dan’s account came pre-packaged with Matt’s marketing messages. Dan personalized those messages to himself by answering a few questions in his Online Control Panel. Now Dan is sending his own personalized version of Matt’s messages to his customers! All of the basic content is Matt’s, but Dan’s contact information is on the letters. Here is the autoresponse that Dan sends to his potential customers:


Thanks for stopping by the All Natural Pharmaceuticals web site today! We hope you come back soon!

Best Regards, Dan D. 5 Farm Way
Sootuh, TN 88457

Notice that the contact name and address at the end of the e-mail are Dan’s, but that the greeting at the beginning of the message still includes the name of Dan’s lead.

Mission Accomplished

With Matt’s experience in hand, Dan is now marketing more successfully than ever before. And he isn’t the only one - Matt’s entire downline is now using his marketing messages! Matt’s commissions are growing exponentially.

Matt and Dan’s situation is not unique. Any network marketer with an established downline can take advantage of the opportunities available in an auto message setup system. There’s no better way to put more auto in your autoresponder.
