Approaching the Collapse: Don’t Panic, Go Organic

girl watering

So-called “business as usual” is neither sustainable, nor even possible, for much longer. Out-of-control energy corporations, Wall Street, the Pentagon, agribusiness/biotech corporations, and indentured politicians have driven us to the brink. They tell us: don’t worry; trust the experts, things will soon return to “normal.” But reality and common sense tell a different story. Read more:

Obama Goes All Out For Dirty Banker Deal | Rolling Stone Politics | Taibblog | Matt Taibbi on Politics and the Economy

It is really unfortunate that Obama has so dupped his constituents going for big campaign contributions rather than doing what is best for the country.  Maybe he thinks it is the only way out of this dilemma, I don’t know.  But certainly just slapping the wrists of the people that committed such massive fraud on the American people is a trvesty of justice not being served.

Happiness: Woman Has Not Used Money In 15 Yrs

I have often wondered if we really need money and if the world would work better with out it.  I know this is a radical idea in our American Dream Get Rich Quick Instant Gratification Culture where we feel we need money to be happy.   But I have heard of people who live with very little or no money and through either a self sufficient lifestyle or a simplified lifestyle feel they are much happier than when they were in the “Rat Race.’  Now with our infinite growth paradigm starting to collapse it is wonderful to see pioneers such as this woman in Germany. What do you think? Can you see a way you could live without money or with much less?

As The World Economy Crumbles What Do I Do?

The following link is a basic step 101 to being prepared in these times of uncertainty. With the economy struggling with it’s last breaths we have become more aware than ever of the fragile nature of our complex and highly interconnected life support systems. We depend so much on the modern conveniences of electricity, food at the grocery store, water at the tap and fuel at the gas pump for our mobility. What if these things break down? Not to mention the complexity of everything now dependent on computers and the internet. Having been a boy scout I am ever more respectful of the motto ‘Be Prepared.’ That is why I created this blog with lots of info and resources on things you can do to be prepared. I hope you find this blog and the following info useful in the times ahead.

Groupon Paved The Way, Now The Customer Advantage Is Set To Revolutionize The Industry

It all started with Groupon the gorilla of the 50% off coupon industry started by Andrew Mason in November of 2008. It has now grown so large that it was recently offered $6 Billion dollars by Google which Mason turned down. Now a new company started by John Milanoski is looking to turn a genius marketing program into the next retail marketing revolution. Here’s the idea. Groupon came up with the simple idea that if you could get 50% off coupons on things you buy then you would not only rush to get the deals, but you would tell everyone you know about Groupon. Not only did it work..it worked fabulously and Groupon grew to millions of subscribers in short order.

Now The Customer Advantage is using the same idea, but not only will you save on goods and services that you buy in your community, but instead of Groupon earning all the profit, TCA shares that with it’s subscribers. Let’s say you tell a friend and they become a subscriber and purchase a coupon for 50% off at their local salon, you would receive a percentage of their coupon purchase. The more friends you share it with the more potential you have for a little extra income.

And how much you may ask does it cost to be a subscriber? ZILCH, Nada, a big fat 0 dollars, not now not ever as John says. So what is there to lose? Nothing, the only way you lose is by not signing up.

Now not only is this a great deal for the consumer, but it offers businesses an extra revenue stream also. You see businesses register their business in the system and they can sign up their customers and earn income off of any purchases of coupons that their customers make, even on coupons they use in other businesses in the community. A win-win deal for everyone involved. If you haven’t signed up already why not? Just click the banner below. John is setting a goal for 10 million subscribers this year! He has already enrolled 10% of that this year and is growing exponentially every day. So do you want to be the one to share this with friends or will you wait until friends start telling you about it?

SIGN UP TODAY – YOU HAVE ZILCH,NADA,NOTHING TO LOSE!
