This is a graphical look at the use of Pinterest in the USA and compares the use with our allies in the United Kingdom. I use it for the political purposes – scarcely done by anyone in the USA and the same holds true of Britian. I think graphically so this article, of course, appeals to me.
The USA use is more for the feminine gender while in Great Britian it tends to have a more business pursuit which seems to be more masculine. I suggest a take-over by those of us interested in the less “crafty” side of life.
But, take a look, it is quite an interesting article. Perhaps it will give you ideas how it can be beneficial to you no matter what your perspective or interest is at the moment. It also may be a good place to keep some of your favorite pictures so others can enjoy them as well.
I have some points of this article listed below but I highly recommend you take your time and read the whole article. I did and it is well worth reading!
[A SHORT RIEVIEW – BUT READ IT ALL – A MUST]
“Socialism… works on the emotions…to stifle the voice of reason by awakening primitive instincts. — FEAR.”
Disrupt relationships with sponsors: Not unlike “Chinese Roulette,” the object is to put a bullet of fear in the minds of the target’s advertisers. Or, as a Chinese official was quoted in theEconomist only last January in a story with a section titled “Chinese Roulette,” give people (advertisers in the case of Rush) the sense they are “playing pass the parcel with a time bomb.”
Says Commissar Carusone in hisVillage Voice interview:
“I started talking to advertisers on Thursday, and got a lot of feedback on Friday, and I knew a lot of movement was taking place. This was important to think about from a business perspective.”
Get it? The very next day — Thursday– the Commissar was at work instilling fear into Rush’s sponsors. Result?
Methodically Catalogue Results of Smear and Fear Campaign: Next step? After having sprayed an AK-47’s worth of bullets of fear at Rush’s advertisers?
First, here’s this interesting graph posted at StopRush.org:
In a statement emailed to Media Matters, Brighter.com indicated ads on Rush Limbaugh were placed in error and they would take steps to ensure such ads do not air again in the future.
Catch the reference? “In a statement emailed to Media Matters…..” And who, now, is Media Matters? That’s right. Media Matters is officially the employer of…Angelo Carusone.
And what follows next? This:
A spokesperson for Brighter.com contacted Media Matters and advised that this Brighter.com ad ran as a result of “inventory being placed indiscriminately by a media buying agency,” stressed that Brighter.com did not deliberately advertise on this program, and confirmed that Brighter.com has “taken steps to assure this does not happen in the future.” Media Matters will continue to monitor.
[MY WORDS: Brighter.com is actiing cowardly. I wil not, and suggest that others do not, deal with ANY of their products. They have no moral fiber and therefore I doubt that their products have any real value and doubt they will stand behind any of their warranties. ]
The Left’s Dependence on Fear and Intimidation: The left has centuries ago trademarked themselves as history’s thugs, the grim, intolerant people with the brass knuckles and more if you get out of line and dare to speak your mind. From the guillotine of 1789 to the lists of enemies of the people in the 1920s to Chinese Roulette in the 1960s. In America it has run the gamut from the lynching of blacks to union thuggery to intimidating sponsors of talk radio in the twittering 21st century. It’s all to the same purpose.

Is this still America?
Only if we fight back.
Vladimir Putin ran on his ticket in Russia with his “get tough” on the United States and won the election. Now Obama is being “overly friendly” with the Russians at, seemingly the wrong time. He is fighting an arguing with the American Congress and these rolling over and wanting the Russians to rub his time. He while he purrs for them. We notice the body language of president Obama patting the arm of the current Russian president, Medvedev, as he speaks in loving friendly tones telling them to be patient until he wins election so that after that he will be able to push through with greater force his plans and policies regarding our missiles.
The president’s in trying to whitewash his comments says that Congress is resisting him on “thoughtful” discussions. What does this mean that our Congress is irrational. And why does he share this with the world? This seems to be an obvious attempt at covering over his original intent.
Russia has recently vetoed the United Nations censure of Syria and the mass killing of their people. Russia has also resisted placing limits on Iran regarding their nuclear development any time it was brought up in the United Nations. How does this make our allies feel?
How does Israel feel? Does this encourage trust in the United States when our allies see these actions and hear these words from our president? Does this encourage them when they see our president putting “another face” on the situation? Or do they see a president who is two-faced? Which face do they see, and which one can they trust, if any?
While there is a lot of confusion in this case and no one knows for sure what has happened.
What we DO KNOW is that the national media is playing the “Race Card” again! The fact is that Trayvon is black! The fact is that Zimmerman is hispanic and white. This begs the question, “Why is the national media portraying Zimmerman as white? Why not as hispanic?”
How does the national media portray President Obama? Obama is 50% white and 50% black. Why does the national media become inconsistant? Obama should be focused on as white as they are doing with Zimmerman.
The reason is they are doing race-baiting in one situation and trying to use race to promote voting by a minority segment of society. It is in both cases, it is racially motivated. I beleive it is wrong to use race to incite people and stir up trouble. Sharpton, Jessy Jackson, Obama, are all playing to the black community to get them riled up.
Now, the Black Panthers have gotten involved and are offering $10,000 for the arrest of George Zimmerman and threatening to come up with $1 million. They are already assuming, “assuming”, that Zimmerman is guilty of some crime. They call out, no, shout out for justice, but justice requires time and sane people who think rationally, not with their emotions.
stirring up emotions and irrational actions is not going to promote justice. It will promote injustice and possibly anarchy. It will drive wedges between people of the community and perhaps cause greater hurt then would have been happening otherwise.
This is the greatest betrayal since Benedict Arnold! If a president would’ve done this back in the founding days of our nation, we know what they would’ve done to him, they would’ve tried him for treason! This is the Benedict Arnold of the 21st century, he is as diabolical as Judas.
Can you imagine a president doing something worse than this,a sitting president? Even President Jimmy Carter wouldn’t have betrayed us like this. See below what President Obama said and then the response of the President of Russia. This was not intended to be caught on tape! But ABC news did get it. Their comments were made during a meeting in Seoul, South Korea, and not intended to be made public.
We should be thankful that this was caught so we will be aware of his plans. But more than that, we should be on guard! Could impeachment be in order? Now read the comments below:
(AP) “This is my last election,”Obama is heard telling outgoing Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.“After my election I have more flexibility.”
Medvedev replied,according to a tape by ABC News:“I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir,”an apparent reference to incoming President Vladmir Putin.
Obama and Medvedev did not intend for their comments to be public.”
OBAMA MUST NOT BE RE-ELECTED.
Awake! Awake America! It is past time to be aroused out of your sleep. A famous politician and one deemed one of the wisest in history said, “When I saw, I reflected upon it; I looked, and received instruction. “A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to rest,” Then your poverty will come as a robber and your want like an armed man. I applied my heart to what I observed and learned a lesson from what I saw: A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest — and poverty will come on you like a thief and scarcity like an armed man.
We have seen, the Obama short-change the American people in many situations. He has bowed to foreign kings and leaders, he is told other nations to “drill baby drill,” but refuses to allow drilling off the coast of the USA by our companies. He is told other nations, we will be their best customer to buy their oil, we have seen him stop the National Day of Prayer, but open it up to Muslim special days. Over, and over and over he has betrayed Americans and our national interests.
Now he wants to bring us in submission to Russia! He has sworn to uphold the Constitution, but at every turn he moves away from it, refuses to obey the laws of the land, which he is sworn to uphold.
He as much as told Russians to wait until after his election, then he would have more freedom to sell America down the river, to throw us under the bus.
How do you think our allies feel about this? How do you think Israel feels about this at this time? How do you think Americans should feel about it at this time?
This should outrage every American who has any patriotic blood in them and cares about this nation being strong for their children and grandchildren. If they don’t, they fall into the same category as Obama.
It becomes more and more obvious that America is going to have bus tracks all over it when Obama is done with the citizens of America.
Obama will “ACT” stronger during the election, then SELL OUT our missle defense system to the RUSSIANS if REELECTED!
This is a risk we can not afford. Pray for our nation and for God to protect us from Barack Obama.
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have recently begun to change their opinion regarding giving significant principal write-downs – where part of a mortgage loan is forgiven for people who are having trouble paying their mortgages. Previously, they said this would not be a good move for their companies regarding their foreclosure policies.
The reason for this sudden change – Democrats are pushing them. Most Republicans see the danger. Fortunately, the federal regulator of Fannie and Freddie is currently forbidding this change. Fannie and Freddie already have many different optional means for people to save their homes and are offering them to the homeowners in need, and there seems to be no need to add the Administration’s plan of principal reduction.
While principal write-downs for mortgages could prevent serious losses and keep people in their homes, it would costs the taxpayer millions of dollars. Some Democrats and some economists feel this would be a good tool to help the housing market get back on its feet. Many feel this would be a good reason for homeowners to fight to keep their property instead of letting it go into foreclosure. These homeowners would get a principal write-down on their mortgages. For example, some may get as much as $50,000 off of their principal, which would encourage them to keep their home. It sounds good on the surface. But there’s a hook.
The reason for this sudden change of opinion for Fannie and Freddie is because the Obama administration has increased the pay back for these write-downs using MORE taxpayer money. If Fannie and Freddie did this on their own they feel it would not be a good policy. Therefore, if it’s not a good policy for Fannie and Freddie to do it, why is it a good policy for the government to get involved?
With as many as half a million homeowners getting this kind of break, this could cause a stampede of people who see this as a way of reducing their mortgage but who actually do not need it. The Obama administration is telling Fannie and Freddie that they will pay back 50% of the loss that these companies would take. This in fact works like another bailout for these two companies, who were some of the worst offenders in the housing crisis. This is the reason for Fannie and Freddie’s sudden change of opinion.
The head of the Federal Housing Finance Agency, which oversees Fannie and Freddie, Ed DeMarco, said he does not want to see a lot of foreclosures but he has to protect the taxpayer as well because this is the mandate for his job. DeMarco and many Republicans field that this bailout will work against the taxpayers. One of their fears is that many homeowners would quit paying their mortgages so they can get this principal reduction. This could escalate into a very big problem. DeMarco is being pressured by 100 lawmakers who have signed a letter asking him to consider allowing principal write-downs.
So the Obama ministration wants to spend more of your money into this bailout proposition. It would appear the Administration has not learned a thing.
If the private sector is already doing this – LET THEM CONTINUE! There is no reason for the government to get into the game with tax-payer money. This is money the government doesn’t have anyway and would increase the debt, add more borrowing, and increase the interest We the People have to pay. So far the government – the ADMINISTRATION shows NO indication of becoming fiscally responsible.
In a normal household (mine) we have had to CUT SPENDING due to the financial crisis. The gover…ADMINISTRATION should follow this same example! We can not spend our way out of debt and IT MAKES SENSE that the gove…ADMINISTRATION can not do it either.
WAKE UP OBAMA! WAKE UP! Stop playing “fiscal roulette” with our tax dollars on a “SURE LOSE” situation. The ADMINISTRATION can not continue this course of tax and spend and get our nation out of the fiscal crisis it is in – “it ain’t gonna happen.” Lets do two things: stop spending on additional projects that will incur greater expense to administer and secondly, let the private sector do what the private sector does best – stay economically sound. If they feel they want to do principle reduction for some people, fine. THEY know when to quit and when to spend. The ADMINISTRATION does NOT.
Another problem is that this would make big government even BIGGER. they will have to add more people to oversee the administration of this bailout. This means adding more people to the current department that oversees Fannie and Freddie, or perhaps starting a whole new department. We need LESS government, not MORE government. Once the federal government adds people to oversee various areas this sucks even more tax-dollars out of our pocket.
The government never seems to be able to cut any area of expansion without causing great upheaval. . The new expansion becomes a special interest group that needs to be coddled.
The already BIG GOVERNMENT grows, and Grows, and GROWS, while the taxpayer groans, Groans, and GROANS
OBAMA WAS POLITICAL AGENDA THROWS IRAQ UNDER THE BUS.
It has become apparent from an article in the Washington times that Obama with pullout from Iraq has caused some real devastation.Iran is invading the nation of Iraq. As has been predicted by many political pundits, more covertly than overtly.
We are now hearing an outcry from people of Iraq regarding the takeover of their country by Iran. But did we know this would happen? Of course we did. But Obama has a tendency to not care what happens to others as long as he can advance his political agenda. This is just one more example of president Obama throwing people under the bus, people who depend on us and are counting on us.
Soon, none of our allies will be able to trust the United States and this will hurt our building coalitions for any action we may want to take or need to take. again, Obama continues to weaken America’s status throughout the world, apparently all for the sake of his political agenda.
I had recently read an article that listed many of Obama’s statements from his books that showed that he is not in favor of advancing American and it appears, that he has nothing but disdain for America. This has the smell of a community organizers attitude trying to pit one faction against another, trying to divide so they can conquer.
I suggest reading this following article: Allawi cites ‘dictatorship,’ Iranian control in Iraq – Washington Times.

Your tax dollars, hard at work.
This irritates the, “blank” out of me. Why can’t the Senate get down to the business are supposed to be involved in a set of wasting our money dealing with another situation that is no business being even dealt with by government!
I wish the people, WE THE PEOPLE, would contact Washington and complained about the Senate not coming up with their budget. I think the reason they’re afraid to come up with a budget is because they’re afraid of how it will affect the voters in the fall. actually, it should affect the voters in the fall because they have not done their jobs. To me this is the perfect reason why no one should vote for any Democrat this fall. They haven’t been willing to do their job, they’re breaking the law and therefore don’t deserve to get paid or to keep their job. If this happened in the private sector the people would be fired immediately.
It’s time we get people into office who want to work and want to fulfill their roles and responsibilities to the people of the United States!honestly, I’m proud of Paul Ryan and the effort he’s put into coming up with a budget. I don’t care if persons a Republican or a Democrat. The point is he’s willing to work, he does his job and puts out a budget so that people can discuss it, look at it and vote on it.
We need to make sure that this Fall is not just about a presidential candidate, but we need to clean house in both the Senate and the House of Representatives. If people are not willing to do their job let’s continue to “throw the bums out!”
