Follow Iowa’s Lead – Here’s One Reason You Should Say NO to Politicians

The latest poll to come out of Iowa is showing a clear indication that American’s are sick of politics and politicians. Donald Trump and Ben Carson are tied at 23 percent with Carly Fiorina holding her own in third.

I would think that should send a clear message to politicians who are serving up more of the same. Politicians are bought, paid for and will do exactly what their donors want them to.

Something I have started looking at VERY closely is privatized prisons. They are big money people! The Petit case in Connecticut is a PRIME example.

The Cheshire, Connecticut, home invasion murders occurred on July 23, 2007. Jennifer Hawke-Petit and her two daughters were murdered, while her husband, Dr. William Petit, was injured during a home invasion in Cheshire, Connecticut. The Hartford Courant referred to the case as “possibly the most widely publicized crime in the state’s history”. In 2010 Steven Hayes was convicted of the murders and sentenced to death. His accomplice, Joshua Komisarjevsky, was found guilty on October 13, 2011, and sentenced to death on January 27, 2012. In August 2015, the state of Connecticut abolished the death penalty, which means that both Hayes and Komisarjevsky would have their death sentences turned into life sentences.

Why?

Two of the absolute, most evil people to EVER walk the face of the earth are allowed to live out their life to the tune of $31,000+ each year in YOUR tax dollars.

Again, WHY?

Because it’s in the best interest of several government officials and their own wallets, to convert their sentences to LIFE.

It’s called Private Profiteers!

privatized prison systems and their profits In the book, “Prison Profiteers: Who Makes Money from Mass Incarceration,” by Tara Herivel and Paul Wright, tells how the prison gravy train actually works. In addition to supplying food, clothing and medical care, private companies profit in other, less visible, ways.

In Prison Profiteers, co-editors Tara Herivel and Paul Wright “follow the money to an astonishing constellation of prison administrators and politicians working in collusion with private parties to maximize profits.” From investment banks, guard unions, and the makers of Taser stun guns to health care providers, telephone companies, and the U.S. military (which relies heavily on prison labor), this network of perversely motivated interests has turned the imprisonment of one out of every 135 Americans into a lucrative business.

If you really want to get a clear picture of what has gone wrong with our criminal justice system – you’ll want to read this book. You will see just how BILLIONS of dollars, earmarked for “public good” actually ends up lining the pockets of many of the politicians we have elected to run our country.

Read the book, follow the money and send a clear message to Washington that lobbyists HAVE GOT TO GO!

Mighty Mug – The Unspillable Coffee Mug Makes a Great Gift Idea

Mighty Mug A few weeks ago, I met with a client in their office. Those who know me know that I don’t go anywhere without a coffee. On that particular day, I had my favorite Starbucks mug with me. I have had that mug for about 10 years and still love it! Unfortunately, while getting my computer set up for our meeting, I managed to knock over my coffee. I didn’t realize the cup had spilled until it was empty and all over their desk and floor.

The business happened to be a meat packing facility that had floors that were easily hosed down – but still, I was mortified.

When I was presented with the opportunity to review The Mighty Mug, a coffee mug that was marketed as the UNSPILLABLE coffee mug – I have to admit, I couldn’t wait for it to arrive. Anything to do with coffee is great, but anything to do with coffee AND saving me from embarrassment or ruined clothes or car – well, that’s all the better.

There is a great selection of colors to choose from – I chose teal because it matches our most prized possession – our 1955 Chevy BelAir. Up until now, I have not taken anything to drink withGaylas 1955 Chevy BelAir me in that car for fear of spilling it. Now, I have a snazzy cup that matches my car and that I feel confident enough to take with me on our leisurely weekend drives.

This cup is perfect for the multi-tasker who has a gazillion things going on and around their desk. You can free yourself of the worry that you’ll spill a drink on your computer, phone or other electronic gadgets. It’s great for parents of toddlers too – it takes a little getting used to to get the suction to un-suck when you pick your cup up – so while it may not be entirely toddler proof – it will give you a few extra seconds to get to the toddler to prevent burns from hot coffee or a simple, random spill. The smart grip technology has you covered!

Key Features:

  • Leak Proof Lid
  • Car Cup Holder Friendly
  • Dishwasher Safe
  • BPA Free
  • 100% Happiness Guaranteed

With a $20 price tag, this isn’t a cup that too many would purchase for themselves, so that makes it an awesome gift idea for the hot beverage drinker on your shopping list.

Christmas is only a few months away!

The Mighty Mug has also been featured on: The New York Times, The Huffington Post, CBS News and Newsday.

When I went to the website earlier, there was a popup offering a 20% coupon available by email. That would come in really handy for purchasing a few Might Mugs for Christmas!

Might Mug available for purchase at TheMightyMug.com

Ashley Madison Did Not Create Cheaters

First of all, I’d like to point out that as MUCH as I despise the website Ashley Madison and ALL that it stands for – I have to point out that the website alone did NOT create cheaters. Ashley Madison simply served as a platform that made it easy for cheaters to cheat. If a person is flawed enough to cheat – they’re going to do it, one way or another. If you want proof […] Read the Full Article »
