Come on, it's a creative funny political commentary on today's political stars. If you don't agree, mentally fill in your own names. Maybe Bush at bat or whoever.

201404 Local-SEO article with some interesting info about directories and how and why the rankings are changing.
To:           Local Directories From:     Google Re:            Local Search Rankings Hey guys… You may have noticed that over the past year, a lot of the organic traffic to your sites has been… well, we guess the right word is “tanking.” As you know, it is our […]

As posted on LinkedIn's Consulting Group:
Exploring the DARKSIDE, LinkedIn's Android APP "acquired" and abused my phone's private contact list by sending LinkedIn invites to everyone! Have you been bamboozled by the LinkedIn APP's install? Is this fair treatment? 

In self-defense, I delete all my LinkedIn Mobile APPs and will carefully review any future LinkedIn interactions. I have 4000 curated contacts and it would be silly to just leave.

So, what sort of desperation drives an organization to these measures to increase their customer base? Is Google + getting so powerful that these other Social Media Services are shaking in their boots. Or maybe phishing personal customer data is the new level of privacy.

An oldish but fun, different and entertaining acapello choral music video, a remake of Toto's African Thunderstorm.

OK. Silly engineer confuses customers with obvious facts but salesman and project manager will agree to anything that bills. If it wasn't so funny, I'd think it was a global warming conversation.
Pity this poor engineer, all by himself in a meeting full of product and marketing types.

Do you remember, confirm or refute these these facts?
 
Stay with this -- the answer is at the end... It will surprise you.
 
One evening a grandson was talking to his grandmother About current events.
 
The grandson asked his grandmother what she thought About the shootings at schools, the computer age, and Just things in general.
 
The Grandmother replied, "Well, let me think a minute,
 
I was born before:
 
' television
' penicillin
' polio shots
' frozen foods
' Xerox
' contact lenses
' Frisbees and
' the pill
 
There were no:
 
' credit cards
' laser beams or
' ball-point pens
 
Man had not yet invented:
 
' pantyhose
' air conditioners
' dishwashers
' clothes dryers
' and the clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air and
' man hadn't yet walked on the moon
 
Your Grandfather and I got married first, and then lived together. Every family had a father and a mother.
 
Until I was 25, I called every man older than me, "Sir."
 
And after I turned 25, I still called policemen and every man With a title, "Sir."
 
We were before gay-rights, computer-dating, dual careers, daycare centers, and
group therapy.
 
Our lives were governed by the Ten Commandments, good judgment, and common
sense.
 
We were taught to know the difference between right and Wrong and to stand up and take responsibility for our actions.
 
Serving your country was a privilege; living in this country was A bigger privilege.
 
We thought fast food was what people ate during Lent.
 
Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with Your cousins.
 
Draft dodgers were those who closed front doors as the Evening breeze started.
 
Time-sharing meant time the family spent together in the Evenings and weekends — not purchasing condominiums.
 
We never heard of FM radios, tape decks, CD's, electric typewriters, yogurt, or
guys wearing earrings.
 
We listened to Big Bands, Jack Benny, and the President's speeches on our radios.
 
If you saw anything with 'Made in Japan ' on it, it was junk.
 
The term 'making out' referred to how you did on your school exam.
 
Pizza Hut, McDonald's, and instant coffee were unheard of. We had 5 &10-cent (5 and dime) stores where you could actually buy things for 5 and 10 cents.
 
Ice-cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar, and a Pepsi were all a nickel.
 
And if you didn't want to splurge, you could spend your nickel on enough stamps
to mail 1 letter and 2 postcards.
 
You could buy a new Ford Coupe for $600, but who could Afford one? Too bad, because gas was 11 cents a gallon.
 
In my day:
 
 "grass" was mowed,
 "coke" was a cold drink,
 "pot" was something your mother cooked in and
 "rock music" was your grandmother's lullaby.
 "Aids" were helpers in the Principal's office,
 "chip" meant a piece of wood,
 "hardware" was found in a hardware store and.
 "software" wasn't even a word.
 
We were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a husband to
have a baby. We volunteered to protect our precious country. No wonder people call us "old and confused" and say there is a generation gap.
 
How old do you think I am?
 
Read on to see -- pretty scary if you think about it and pretty sad at the same time.
 
Are you ready?
 
This woman would be only 62 years old. She would have been born in late 1951
 
GIVES YOU SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT.
 
PASS THIS ON TO OTHER “OLD ONES.”
THE YOUNG ONES WON't BELIEVE THIS!
