A couple of weeks ago my friend Leigh Hanlon and I took a ride to Idaho Springs, and Leigh interviewed me about Social Media. As Leigh says, it was rather fitting as we have become friends thanks to Social Media. Give the podcast a listen as I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.
What do business people really do when they tell you they were working on the laptop while flying to a business destination? They’re doing this…
And they they’re doing this…
We were in Idaho Springs when we finished a podcast this afternoon and saw this great statue.
Gas is currently $2.58/gal for unleaded Regular here in Colorado where I live. Gas is well above $3/gal in some places and moving higher.
Yet we’re seeing nothing being done by the Obama Administration to address the nations need for Oil, domestic or foreign imports. Now yes, President Obama did make a token approach regarding domestic oil exploration recently and it was nothing more than lip service acknowledgement to the issue.
The following links give a good overview of the lack of direction President Obama has on this national issue.
It has become obvious that President Obama has no interest in constructively addressing the issue in manner which will move us forward to a solution regarding this issue.
The creeping Nanny State is showing up in the food industry.
There are two news stories which show just how pervasive this government intrusion into our daily lives is becoming.
The first story comes on the heels of the recent Health Care Reform passed by the Social Democrats, and signed by President Obama.
Since no one bothered to read the bill prior to voting on it, we find out about this mandate after the fact.
The second story is a continuation of the Nanny State’s fascination with Jamie Oliver and his desire for,
The Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Petition, is something to be avoided as we certainly have no need for more government intervention into what we as free individuals can and can’t eat.
On of the things drilled into me while in Journalism School, was to check, check again and even have someone else confirm the facts of the news story I was reporting upon. Even to have someone else proof read and spell check the accuracy of the news report, was also suggested.
I continues to amaze me that national publications have strayed so far from the basic tenets of Journalism. The prime on-going example of this shoddy Journalism is the continued erroneous reporting of the James O’Keefe incident, at the offices of Sen. Mary Landrieu.
An initial incorrect published news story is an anomaly. The continued incorrect publishing of the facts, is blatant disregard for the facts.
What is even more amazing is the puzzlement of those in the media, both broadcast and print, as to the decline of their industry. They aren’t taking a critical look at the product they are producing, and if they were, they might realize the accuracy of a news story is paramount.
Doctors, food, water, medical supplies, and certainly a plethora of other things that aren’t coming to mind currently. What Haiti doesn’t need are, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Former President Bill Clinton, Reverend Al Sharpton, or the others who are heading to Haiti under the cover of aid and assistance while making the most of a natural disaster photo op.
