Major general: Proof of eligibility needed

This is so simple as to be difficult for many to grasp. All the President needs to do is produce the required documents. What could be easier? Until that is accomplished, there is a continuing doubt as to Obama’s qualifications and honesty with the American people.

Major general: Proofof eligibility needed: “‘Most important, what Ireally want is the truth'”

Social Networking Tools

Pondering that Social Networking tools comes down to simply personal preference at this stage of development.

Customer Loyalty Comes from Conversation

Loyalty Cards – 7 on my key chain and 3 more in my wallet. Yikes. These are entirely to many for me and yet, many retailers I might drop into, ask at the check out, if I have a Loyalty Card.

I’ve long thought maybe they should just lower their prices across the board rather than having to make their customers jump through hoops to get a few cents off on a product.

Somewhere in the deep recesses of an office building in some undisclosed location, there’s a harried figure crunching numbers for the retailer and vendor who may or may not use the information properly.

Customer Loyalty Comes from Conversation : “

Loyalty Card

What if instead of focusing on loyalty programs, companies focused on customer rewards? The best reward of all being a loyal company that looks out for its customers, understands their needs, and works in alignment with partners to deliver on them.

How many loyalty cards do you have in your wallet? Do they work for you or are you working to get anything out of them? Often at the (company and personal) cost of the very thing they were created to promote – loyalty.

Conversation leads to brand experience, which in turn may lead to loyalty. Card or no card, a reward for many customers today is often a prompt customer service rep who seeks to listen and understand what is needed and has the ability and company back-up to make it happen.

Some issues with loyalty programs are:

Browser Failure.

Even though the option to block "pop up" windows is checked in FF and Safari, they continue to open. Piss poor programming. FAIL.

ABC Groaner: Now Just Living ‘Near’ Fast Food Places Kills?

The food police are at it again. Not only is Fast Food bad for you, now living near a Fast Food place will cause you harm. This appears to be a variation on a theme from the Democratic National Convention here in Denver last year.

ABC Groaner: Now Just Living ‘Near’ Fast Food Places Kills?: “

-By Warner Todd Huston

The ABC News medical unit wants to warn you about a stunning new risk to your health: fast food. Amazingly, it ‘ups your stroke risk’ ABC tells us. Of course, we all know that eating too much fast food is bad for us, right? Well ABC has even more startling news. It isn’t necessarily only eating the stuff that’ll kill you. You see, ABC wants us to believe that just living near fast food places will kill you, too.

Intel iMac to TV

So this is one of the first times that I’m disappointed in Apple products. I simply want to view Hulu, and other video products on our TV. Simple you say. Ha! The polite and helpful Apple Store Employee assured me that I had everything I needed to make this happen. Wrong! The only thing that will display on the TV screen is the desktop background and nothing else. Cabling is running from our Mini DVI output in the back of the 20" Intel iMac via an S-video cable to the S-video input in the TV. It looks like my next venture will be to use the
Apple Mini DVI to VGA Adapter. Maybe that will work.

It’s Official… Barack Obama To Raise Taxes in a Recession…

It’s becoming even more clear that the President and his administration have no clue about how to correct the economy.

It’s Official… Barack Obama To Raise Taxes in a Recession…: “Usually in a recession, the last thing a government keen to create prosperity does, is raise taxes… But then again, who said that was Barack Obama’s objective?
Of course, this is being done to ‘protect’ the middle-class. Having been a member of the middle-class for most of my life, I did not know I wanted protection […]”
