How many can you guess??
People can barely name politicians today that are TV and cable news shows every day. Poli-wonks though probably do. I am one so I'm challenging my fellow politics lovers who are aware of famous Democratic politicians to identify them when they were young. Take this test. Who are these politicians

If you could use $400 in a little extra cash, here is an opp I want to share with you that is closing pretty quicky!

You participate in this online focus group for a couple of weeks. (max commitment 6 hours over that period). It's for a marketing company that does these focus groups to get insights for their customers/market.

Not bad way to pick up a couple of Benjamins. That could pay a phone bill or for a new purse or iPad mini.

Here are the deets in this blog post:
Sponsored post Listen, who couldn't use an extra $400 cash in their pocket right now? If you are a mom, 12-24 weeks preggers or trying to conceive, even, you're looking at earning 400 bucks for par...

Introduction

The word according to the Book of JJ

In the year....

1992 - Took a  college job creating content for one of the earliest websites in history while working at the University of Maryland Office of Technology.

1994 – Got ambitious and applied for a coveted intern slot at U.S. News & World Report and was the only non-Ivy-league student awarded a plum spot. It was there I realized I didn’t want to become a journalist after all. Maybe my dad was right. I argue a lot. Law is my field.

1995 - Enrolled in law school at the Catholic University, destined to be a top telecom lawyer.

1998 –Scored a gig teaching advocacy to Georgetown University Law Students after graduating from law school. Was great. I got to be a big fish in a small pond.

2000 – Saw the ocean across the way and left the small pond and headed to a big sea and became an Associate at an international law firm. I was the only black lawyer in our DC office.

2002- Dubbed my professor years, guest spoke at Yale Law, taught media Law at my alma matter U of MD and lectured at Penn State.

2004 -Convinced 6 of my college girlfriends to start our own blog where we’d talk about our passions: handbags, shoes and politics.  We were going to blow up, I told them. Gig on the Side was its name

2005- Jilted by the failure to become a super blogger, I became Asst General Counsel and at one time was the only communications regulator for the District of Columbia. I negotiated franchise agreements on behalf of then Mayor Anthony Williams and lobbied future Mayor Adrian Fenty.

2005- Struck it on my own, formed a law firm and PR firm. I repped national communications companies and nonprofits

2007 – Started plotting world online domination. Dubbed myself a social butterfly and commenced to joining , moderating, leading, writing, antagonizing, stoking and agitating my way through various blogs.

2010- Went to the White House and was 1 of 22 bloggers at the first African American Online Summit

2011- Served as amici counsel before US Supreme Court on behalf of a coalition of national organizations including Public Knowledge, Media Access Project The NAACP, RainbowPUSH, NOW, The Urban League and others.
