THINK, think, think and share!
This post is for all relatively new bloggers and especially bloggers new to developing their affiliate marketing program. I want to hear from you. I would like to engage in a conversation of what works and what doesn't. I believe it would be beneficial to have you share your opinions about various affiliate programs (be nice), their differences, why you prefer one over the other; how you're working them into your blog site or Web page; and, if are you trying to break into the article writing market as well.
I know there are a lot of experience blogging guru's out on the Internet, many whom are willing to help, and I have my favorites as you do. But sometimes their blog can seem overwhelming and even too technical. I believe we beginners can really benefit from each other, support each other's work, help develope each others niche or find it, while still keeping the flames of excitement burning. So, I invite you newbies to come aboard and speak up. This also is a good time to put your blogging skills to work, especially for you shy ones.

Do you know about Squidoo? If you like to write, creating lenses is a fun way to go and you can earn some extra cash as well. You can use them to promote a book, product or unique idea.
This lens has been established so that my friends and family can easily find my lenses. It is a quick review as to my accomplishments. It will help me to have an "at a glance" review of the variety and hopefully keep me motivated toward trying new topics.
I have decided to have fun with lenses first and then be concerned secondly about the success of my lenses. I am planning on using Sandy's Lenses as a palette for setting up ideas for future lenses as well. I am not sure about other lensmasters, but I have to write my ideas down and right now they are in a couple of places. At Sandy's Lenses, I will be able to just stop by, open a write/text module and put down my ideas.
So stop by and visit, Squidoo especially other squids......happy to see you.

Well, Christmas is approaching us and it seems like it is coming at a faster pace this year for me. Given the state of the economy, I am sure folks will be looking for the best buys and may even be doing more on-line shopping. My web page, Christmas Fun and Shopping for 2008, has been designed to meet the needs of those who want to shop on-line as well as have some fun while doing so. I have also tried to identify those businesses that offer Pay Pal services in addition to credit cards. So, grab a cup of coffee and have some fun while you shop for the holidays. And remember, if you shop from home you probably won't feel like dropping from shopping.

Obama Has Links to ANOTHER '60s Radical
Barack Obama has consistently sought to distance himself from former domestic terrorist Bill Ayers. But it’s a different story with another student radical from the 1960s — Marilyn Katz — who is actually on Obama’s fundraising team.
Katz, a public relations executive in Chicago, serves on Obama’s national finance committee. She is listed as a fundraising “bundler” on his Web site, has hosted fundraisers for the candidate, and attended the Democratic Convention as part of the Illinois delegation.
But during the violent protests of the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago, Katz was the security chief for the radical Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), which spawned Ayers and the Weather Underground.
During those protests, Katz advocated throwing studded nails in front of police cars, the Chicago Tribune reported.
In 1969, an undercover policeman named William Frapolly testified at the “Chicago Seven” trials, and prosecutors asked him to describe his collaboration with organizers of the protest the previous year.
He testified that one night in Chicago’s Lincoln Park, Katz briefed a group of protesters on the use of “guerilla nails.”
“She had two types,” he told the court.
“One was a cluster of nails that were sharpened at both ends, and they were fastened in the center. It looked like they were welded or soldered. She said these were good for throwing or putting underneath tires.
“She showed another set that was the same type of nails sharpened at both ends, but they were put through a Styrofoam cylinder.”
A prosecutor asked, “To whom was she showing these objects?”
Frapolly answered, “Everyone in the group.”
Katz was a principal organizer of the October 2002 anti-war demonstration in Chicago where Obama first expressed his opposition to the looming Iraq war.
In 2005, she co-authored the book “Stopping War, Seeking Justice” along with longtime Marxist and Obama supporter Carl Davidson.
Now she is co-chair of Chicagoans Against War & Injustice, and her public relations firm is working on contracts with the city of Chicago worth millions of dollars. She lists as her clients the city’s housing authority, law department, and departments of housing, human services, streets and sanitation, and public health, among others.
As for her relationship with Ayers, who admitted helping to bomb the U.S. Capitol and the Pentagon in the 1970s, the Tribune reported that she has said, “Bill and I were in different parts of SDS. We disagreed on tactics.”
Guy Benson wrote on Townhall.com about Obama’s Katz connection: “There are so many objectionable figures in Obama’s social milieu, new revelations about yet another garden variety radical may elicit shrugs at this point . . .
“Perhaps it follows that someone who preferred lobbing guerilla nails at police over planting pipe bombs in federal buildings would be integrated into Obama’s official campaign apparatus without so much as a second look.”

It appears that Obama is getting ready to prepare his supporters with a dose of reality! According to Tim Reid, The Times of London, "Barack Obama's senior advisers have drawn up plans to lower expectations for his presidency if he wins next week's election, amid concerns that many of his euphoric supporters are harboring unrealistic hopes of what he can achieve.
The sudden financial crisis and the prospect of a deep and painful recession have increased the urgency inside the Obama team to bring people down to earth, after a campaign in which his soaring rhetoric and promises of "hope" and "change" are now confronted with the reality of a stricken economy."
Are we conservatives surprised? No. The hand writing was on the wall. Barack Obama has and still is very good at "stretching or distorting" what isn't. Promise them anything as long as they are willing to hear it and buy into it! Notice what the quote above says, "...drawing up plans to lower expectations for his presidency if he wins..." Another "let's not give them too much bad truth now but wait until I've got the position locked in." Folks, this is the true colors of Barack Obama.
We all have expectations. The dictionary states that the word expectation means: a strong belief that something will happen or be the case in the future. However, along with expectations we must weigh it against reality. Obama's expectations have over shot reality with too much hype. The reality is that there is not enough money to do all the things Obama has told the American people he will do. And, he told them this knowingly. Simple as that. Now, once again, he wants to change his "speech and his direction" so people will more likely accept the truth when it hits them after the election. He is for change alright. He is for changing his story to fit his need.
Wake up America.

Editor's warning: Some readers may take offense to graphic content in this column.
About eight years ago, while researching the astonishing rise of homosexual-positive programs and curricula in schools, I came across a book called "Queering Elementary Education: Advancing the Dialogue about Sexualities and Schooling" by William J. Letts IV and James T. Sears.
It's a collection of essays by radicals in the teaching profession, who believe adults and small children must be taught to "think queerly." The book's foreword was written by Kevin Jennings, then president of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, or GLSEN, whose core mission is to convince as many troubled kids as possible to declare themselves homosexual and start "gay" clubs in their schools, assisted by activist on-site teachers and the ACLU, and unopposed by clueless school boards.
What jumped off the back cover of this book was the name of one of its endorsers: William Ayers of the University of Illinois at Chicago. I remembered Bill Ayers' name from the 60s bomb-throwing group, the Weathermen. At the time, that was all his name meant to me.
To continue this article, click on "Bill Ayers' 'gay' agenda for your kids" above.
By:Phyllis Schlafly @ EagleForum.Org
Will William Ayers be Secretary of Education in a Barack Obama Administration? All parents should ponder that possibility before making their choice for President on November 4.
After all, Ayers is a friend of Obama, and Professor Ayers's expertise is training teachers and developing public school curriculum. That's been his mission since he gave up planting bombs in government buildings (including the U.S. Capitol and the Pentagon) and assaulting police officers.
Ayers brashly admitted that he was "guilty as hell" in planting bombs in the 1970s, and that he has no regrets and feels that he and his Weather Underground associates "didn't do enough." After successfully avoiding trial and prison because of legal technicalities, he picked up his Ph.D. at Columbia Teachers College for a second career, landing a tenured job as Distinguished Professor of Education at the University of Illinois in Chicago.
Ayers's political views are as radical now as they were in the 1970s. "Viva President Chavez!" he exclaimed in a speech in Venezuela in 2006, in which he also declared, "education is the motor-force of revolution."
From his prestigious and safe university position, Ayers has been teaching teachers and students in rebellion against American capitalism and what he calls "imperialism" and "oppression." The code words for the Ayers curriculum are "social justice," a "transformative" vision, "critical pedagogy," "liberation," "capitalist injustices," "critical race theory," "queer theory," and of course multiculturalism and feminism.

Once in a while you come across an article that you must share and this one from Mark Alexander is such an article. Mark is executive editor and publisher of The Patriot Post, the Web's "Conservative Journal of Record". He talks about why people select certain candidates or issues, pointing out an interesting analogy as to whether you are making a choice as a liberal or conservation. It seems some "feel" their way to ideas or principles and some "think" their way. How do you make your selection? And, if you should be a liberal, well, sorry. Enjoy the read.
From Patriot Post Vol. 08 No. 29; Published 18 July 2008
"If men of wisdom and knowledge, of moderation and temperance, of patience, fortitude and perseverance, of sobriety and true republican simplicity of manners, of zeal for the honour of the Supreme Being and the welfare of the commonwealth; if men possessed of these other excellent qualities are chosen to fill the seats of government, we may expect that our affairs will rest on a solid and permanent foundation." --Samuel Adams
Ask liberals about some manifestation of their worldview -- for example, why they support charlatans like Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Albert Arnold Gore, John Forbes Kerry, et al., and they often predicate their response with, "Because I feel..."
Ask conservatives about what they believe, or why they do or don't support John McCain, and they invariably predicates their response with, "Because I think..."
It has always been easier to "feel" rather than "think," and that is why our national culture, and by extension, national politics (see Democrat Party Platforms) reflect only the most rudimentary remnants of the guiding principles established by our Founders. Of course, though Republican Party Platforms are more consistent with our Founding principles, Ronald Reagan was the last Republican president to stand firmly in support of those principles.

WAKE UP AMERICA. Voters out there on Main Street, we need to call our individual Secretary of State officials to ensure the appropriate steps are being taken to stop voter registration by ACORN until a complete investigation is held. Too much is at risk. We also need to contact our elected officials and tell them to take the necessary steps to stop any and all funding that is going to ACORN and its affiliates. Not only is taxpayer money going down the drain, our election may being following. This is an outrage and we must act now!

This year seems to be the year for political tragedies. Americans had to accept the "bailout" from Congress, however, not by its own standards but with "earmarks"! And, if that's not enough to frost your banana, add the excitement of voter fraud. Over the years I have seen some articles and few news reports about voter fraud, but nothing like this year...WOW! There are folks out on the Internet that say there is very little to it. They are not watching or reading the same news I am.
Things are a little squirrely for me. The ACORN group is at it again. They are stiring up "voter fraud" news in about ten states across the nation. And if that is not enough, there is the linking of Obama with ACORN and linking ACORN with Fannie and Freddie. It seems that there is enough talk for investigation, I believe, since ACORN receives money from us generous taxpayers.

“To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.” —Thomas Jefferson

"The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism,
but under the name of liberalism
they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program
until one day America will be a socialist nation
without ever knowing how it happened----"

It seems the Democrats are pushing for earmark$ again. In an Yahoo news article by Julie Hirschfelt Davis, associated press writer, "Democrats are pushing to allow bankruptcy judges to rewrite mortgages to ease the burden on consumers who are facing foreclosure — a nonstarter for Republicans." Do they want to encourage more abuse?
She continues to say, "Democrats also want any potential proceeds the government reaps from the bailout to go to a fund designed to pay for housing for poor families. Many Republicans oppose the very existence of the fund, which they say is a backdoor means of funneling money to liberal political groups." It seems like the Democrats just can't keep from re-allocating other people's money. And they wonder why We the People are "up in arms" about this. I feel the Federal Government is too quick to push for a "solution" to an extremely big problem. I also believe most Americans feel that congress is going to screw this up no matter what the out come is. How can We the People be sure the money will be used appropriately.....since it hasn't been in the past?

Once again, the ACLU is usurping its authority by filing legal action to block RI governor from doing his job to protect his state from the stresses and strains that illegal immigration is causing. It appears the state needs help not punishment (lawsuit causing dollars back to the ACLU). Shouldn't the ACLU be going after the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security?

More political games designed to dupe the American people! Increased prices at the pump! More dependence on oil from Iran, Venezuela and other foreign countries that HATE America!That basically sums up Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and her liberal cohorts’ plan to address our nation’s energy crisis.
Indeed, leave it to the Pelosi Politburo to pass a bill, literally in the dark of night, that EFFECTIVELY PROHIBITS domestic drilling and then try to sell the legislation to the American people as a measure that opens up domestic drilling!In case you missed it, here's the play by play on Pelosi’s energy “hoax”:

There are three branches of government contained within The US Constitution: legislative, executive and judicial. These three brances were designed with checks and balances so that each branch can serve as a continuing check on the others. The judicial, I believe, is out of balance.
Phyllis Schlafly, in her book The Supremacists The Tyranny of Judges and How To Stop It, states, "The U.S. Constitution vests "all" legislative powers in the Congress. That means no legislative powers are granted to the courts. Yes, over the past fifty years, judges have become increasingly activist--legislating from the bench, and writing their own policies and attitudes into the law. In the latter half of the twentieth century, some of our most far-reaching social, economic and political decisions have been made by judges rather than by our elected representatives."

In major national polls, the vast majority of Americans are against Arnold being able to run for President. Imagine Arnold Schwarzenegger, a man who says he's dreamed of being a dictator, having control of the nuclear launch codes as President.
If you are as concerned as we are about a Schwarzenegger presidency, or any foreigner gaining access to the highest office in the land, then please donate as much as you can to Americans Against Arnold so we can run radio and television ads around the country exposing Arnold and his agenda.
Contact your local media and government representatives and tell them about ArnoldExposed. Tell them that we deserve equal time, as Arnold's political operatives are already campaigning 24/7 to repeal Article 2, Section 5 of the United States Constitution. Fax and email them our press release repeatedly. Tell them how to contact us. Beg them to research the sinister statements of Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The Reconstructionists want to act very much like a King when it comes to the U.S. Constitution. As I recall, we came to this country to relieve ourselves of the burdens imposed on the people by various European Kings, not the least of which was King George III of England.
All of the lands of the Earth, are already claimed by somebody. So there is no "New World" to escape to. If we want justice, accordingly to the Constitution, we have to adopt the Constitutionalists interpretation of the U.S. Constitution. To adopt the Reconstructionists point of view is the equivalent of returning to the law of the Kings.)
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Associate Justice of the U. S. Supreme Court (1902-1932), declared that, "Theory is the most important part of the dogma of the law, as the architect is the most important man who takes part in the building of a house." The theories that Supreme Court justices espouse produce the egregious decisions and doctrines of Reconstructionist cases, including the Roe and Casey decisions which we have been analyzing for several months.
Reconstructionist constitutional theory diametrically opposes Constitutionalist constitutional theory; and we must understand these theories in order to evaluate adequately, not only judicial decisions, but the theories held by candidates in the 2008 elections. Questions of constitutional theories have permeated, not just American law, but American culture in general. Therefore, all patriots need at least a cursory understanding of the opposing constitutional theories in today's Culture War. Three very broad and fundamental issues divide Constitutionalists from Reconstructionists. We shall summarize the three issues and then offer a view of the advocates of each theory concerning these issues.

What is our true National Debt? The clock indicates it is reaching $9 Trillion....don't believe it! Try $53 Trillion (see the short video clip to the right of this post). The following Press release article by Steve Jordan explains about a movie circulating the country to inform all Americans of how drastic this situtation has become.
In this Disaster Flick, What's Running Red is Federal Budget
By Steve Jordan, World-Herald Staff Writer, August 20, 2008
Pete Peterson's father was a 17-year-old immigrant without a penny or word of English and only a third-grade education when he got a job washing dishes aboard a Union Pacific train in Nebraska.
Peter G. Peterson
George Petropoulos (a name he and a brother Americanized to Peterson) saved his money and eventually opened a Greek diner in Kearney. Central Cafe was open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for 25 years.
Petropoulos knew only one American song, "God Bless America." When he sang it, tears streamed down his face in gratitude for what he was able to accomplish in the United States.
The elder Peterson believed in making charitable donations, his son said, even if his children didn't have new bicycles or the family a new car. He also invested heavily in his children's education, sending young Peter to Northwestern University.
Today Peter G. Peterson, 82, says his distinguished career in the public and private sectors started with the values his father passed on, including hard work, love of country and a willingness to sacrifice to serve others.
He has committed up to $1 billion to promote a campaign that will take center stage in Omaha on Thursday: reversing the buildup of public debt, correcting the imbalance of foreign trade, improving Americans' savings practices and finding the political will to make tough decisions.

hey call themselves, "Guardians Of Freedom" defending and perserving individual rights. But whose rights? As I watch the cases they defend and the effect of the outcome those cases have on Americans, I must question, whose individual rights are they perserving?Here is a statement from its founder, Roger Baldwin (agnostic and socialist)."I am for socialism, disarmament, and ultimately for abolishing the state itself as an instrument of violence and compulsion. I seek social ownership of property, the abolition of the propertied class, and sole control of those who produce wealth. Communism is the goal."

he dialogue that has been going on between Obama and James Dobson is VERY important and "We the people" better take note. Mr. Obama does not have his facts straight. Dr. Dobson is not a minister, priest, or theologian nor makes himself out to be. He is a psychologist and founder and chairman of Focus on the Family. Dr. Dobson represents family values, and is a believer in Jesus Christ. He has fought for marriage, the unborn child, children's rights and is concerned about the deterioration of both our moral values and the moral integrity of our country. I have followed Dr. Dobson for over 40 years. I have relied on his knowledge and wisdom to educate myself, improve my marriage and to raise a son.
2. Once again, Obama questions what passage of scripture should guide our public policy? Leviticus, which suggest slavery is ok? Deuteronomy, suggest it is okay to stone a child? Or the Sermon on the Mount?
Mr. Obama really doesn't understand his creator, Christ's relationship to God or what the Bible represents. I am not a theologian, but as a Christian I know there are two testaments. The Old Testament represents the history of creation, God's chosen people, the Jews and the covenant between God and Israel. The New Testament gives us the history of our Savior, Christ, our new covenant between God and his people; believers of Jesus Christ.
Is Senator Obama the type of man we want for our Commander in Chief? One who twists the facts. One who believes one thing but says something else? I should "pray" not.

I challenge you, Mr. and Mrs. American, to read the documentation of what went into building our Constitution and those individuals behind it (see link and references below), and decide for yourselves on the suspected issue of "separation of church and state." And, while you are at it Mr. and Mrs. American, you may want to read the history of the ACLU's founding authors' beliefs, and intentions. I believe you will find it to be an eye-opener to the power and destruction that has been perpetuated against "We the people..."

THIS IS WHO I AM
- Utah, United States
- I am a retired grandmother who lost her husband of 42 years in 2010, to cancer. I relocated from Ventura, CA to a community near Salt Lake City, Utah to be with my son, daughter-in-law and two granddaughters. I am a believer in Jesus our Lord and in the true Sabbath as our worship day. I am learning more and more about what our role is here on Earth as well as what it will be when Yahshua returns. I love crochet, watercolors, and writing. My newest passion is writing poetry. I would love to hear from others who enjoy these crafts; come visit and share your interests.
JULY 4 - Time For Tea
The American people came out on July 4 to protest high taxes and run-a-way government spending. From 11:00 till 2:00 p.m., citizens of Ventura, CA came out to show their support for less taxes and less government interference. As a spectator and one who attended the first Ventura Tea Party, I would say we doubled the turnout of patriots.
All across the country the signs, flags and banners that were carried at the tea parties showed the position that the American people are taking toward its government. They are mad and they are not going to take it anymore!
