The Ron Paul Farewell Address

This is the most important, relevant and germane speech since Eisenhower’s farewell address. Before you dismiss people who espouse “liberty” as nutters and kooks, before you silently acquiesce to the today’s “status quo” and hand the bill off to your … Read the rest

Facebook won’t let me unlike Walmart?

The other day I noticed that “Wal-Mart Canada” had somehow appeared in my “Likes” list on Facebook. After “unliking” it, I posted the following to my facebook page:

Interesting. Walmart was in my “Likes” list.

I don’t like Walmart. In fact I once hired a personal assistant just so I could stay out of places like Walmart. Now we just use some place that delivers, like Grocery Gateway – it’s more expensive but hey, it keeps me out of Walmart.

VRM is the natural compliment to CRM and is conspicuous in its absence from most business models. Yet if I may be so bold, it correctly describes the … Read the rest

Einstein Never Said That.

I’ve seen this one drift across my Facebook feed too many times now that I have to comment on it:

“If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four more years of life left”

This quote is then attributed to Albert Einstein in a type of “case closed” punctuation mark and it has taken on a life of it’s own. In extreme cases I’ve seen it linked to the “Mayan Prophecy” of the world ending on December 21st, 2012 (which the Mayan calendars never really “predicted” at all, but I digress).… Read the rest
