Dennis Linthicum for Congress; Just Say NO to Greg Walden


Dennis Linthicum for Congress, Just Say NO to Greg Walden

Oregonians in the 2nd congressional district finally have a REAL choice when it comes to getting rid of RINO and uncompassionate Republican Greg Walden.

We have given Greg Walden 16 years, and 16 years to long for this so-called Republican who gets a failing grade from many conservative watchdog groups such as Freedom Works who gave Walden an F.

My personal experience with Greg Walden is the main reason I have not given to the Republican Party for many years, only individual candidates.
During a difficult time in our families life, after paying into the system in the $100s of thousands of $ in taxes, I was denied Food Stamps (the Oregon Trail card) even though we were well under the poverty level for a family of 5. I found out the problem is the Federal Food Stamps program only allows for an over all cost of goods and expenses deduction of 50% from sales, which our family business that we were in the process of re-building since our move here in December 2002 only had a profit of about 7% after COG and expenses.

I was put in contact with Greg Walden's office by DHS to further assist me.
Greg Walden's office, in explaining to me, told me that I need to know more about accounting (even though I got nothing less than an ‘A’ in high school or college accounting)!!! I requested a call back or email back from his office in response to this disgusting comment in the phone conversation, but it never was forth coming.


This is exactly why some conservatives feel the need to call themselves compassionate conservatives when in fact being a true conservative should make one compassionate as per Luke 10:25-37.
Greg Walden certainly helps reinforce the stereotype of the stodgy Republican such as "Mr. Potter" from "Its a Wonderful Life"; do we want to continue this stereotype by sending this man back to Washington for 2 more years!!!

Is Vladimir Putin the new Stalin? How to Stop his Evil


Is Vladimir Putin the new StalinAn honest person would be hard pressed to not make some comparisons of Vladimir Putin to Stalin, and not just for his invasion of the Ukraine.

Picture Credit: Putin- Stalin by Kemo

Here are just a few of this man's evils:

  • Putin has resurrected the Stalin era labor medal introduced under Josef Stalin.

    Russia's Putin restores Stalin-era labor award

  • Putin wants to “cleanse” Russia of gays.

    While many even in the USA (myself included) might have differing views of the morals homosexuality, we have no leaders, Democrat, Republican etc. that would ever propose "cleansing" the country of gays. That would be no different than cleansing a country of other acts some may consider a sin; from adultery, to lying, to coveting (our own leader would be "taken away" if lying was made a crime)

  • Manipulation of Russian laws to become President again for a 3rd term, except this time for 6 years.

    Vladimir Putin has in essence been in power since 2000 when one counts his "tandemocracy" with Dmitry Medvedev from 2008 to 2012.
    In reality this makes Vladimir Putin a Dictator!!

  • Putin is backing Assad's blood-soaked Syrian regime

  • Vladimir Putin stated in 2005, that the collapse of the Soviet empire “was the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the century”

    WOW, that says a lot about the this man and his evil intentions!!!

  • While am certainly not making excuses for Vladimir Putin, at least he can make the claim that the mostly Russian population of Crimea. This still does not give him the right when no threats have been made by the government of the Ukraine or its population towards either Russia or the Crimea region of the Ukraine.

Vladimir Putin 666I could go on and likely I will add to the above list, but the other main point of this article is to point out the simple economic fact that Vladimir Putin's Russia maintains his power via oil (Petroleum).
If the price of oil were to collapse, the economic source of Vladimir Putin and his evil intentions would bankrupt him and then hopefully force this bastard from power where he will hopefully live out his years somewhere in Siberia until he joins Stalin and Hitler after death.

While readers of this website certainly know I am no fan of our USA President Obama, he certainly is no Putin, and he can at least somewhat redeem himself by telling the environmentalists in this country to take a hike and finally places humans first by allowing the Keystone Pipeline to be finished as well as opening up more drilling with modern technologies in places such as the North Coast of Alaska and the coast of California (among many other locations).

Currently, both Russia and the United States produce about 10 million barrels of oil per day and something close to 25 trillion cubic feet of natural gas per day.
In Russia, 52% of the total federal budget came from selling oil and natural gas. Reference: Russia using oil wealth to finance nuclear exports

What is also noteworthy is that Russia's economy had a pretty bad 2013 but for the oil industry.
Russia's Oil Industry Is Doing Fine, Which Is Great News For The Kremlin

Meanwhile, the USA and Canada potentially hold the worlds largest oil reserves, which if tapped in greater quantity would drive down oil prices worldwide and allow North America to supply more oil to Europe and elsewhere so as to cut the head off the monster. aka Putin

Google Adwords Manipulation of Results; Failure in Advertising


Once again I have caught Google with their proverbial "hands in the cookie jar"

In this instance, I was adding a new campaign for the TMC AquaRay LEDs, in part due to poor Google organic search results.

I was forced to bid $1.50 per phrase to just make it on page one when in reality this is a very specific term with no true USA competition.

Why $1.50 one might ask?
I found out that my Ad "relevance score" was low according to Google's Adwords algorithm.

How is this when the key word prase was [TMC Aquaray] and the page has this clearly on the landing page. As well since my website is the ONLY full line USA seller of all the latest TMC Aquaray models with the most information, as well as the most authority on this subject, this is laughable at best and fraud and manipulation at worst!!!

What makes this worse is the fact I am not bidding against ANY seller of AquaRay LED lights. Rather when I lower my bid below $1.50, the result is instead "TMC Aquaray on eBay".
But wait, TMC does not allow their products one eBay or Amazon, so what happens when we click there?
Well readers, the result is a page with of course no results and just more Adwords. So in the end I am bidding against Google Adwords themselves, and the bid is forced higher because of this fictitious relevancy score that of course anyone with an IQ above 1 can tell is incorrect.

These two screen shots tell the story, the first is what you see on a search of [TMC Aquray] when my bid is set low, the second is what you see when one clicks on this Adword from Google.

Google Adwords Manipulation

Google Adwords Manipulation, eBay result

Of course one might ask why even bother advertising on Google?

First we spend but a fraction of what we used to with Google Adwords, and even less when it is looked at a percentage of our sales.
However, since Google controls over 70% of internet search results, not having at least some presence on Google can be fool hardy.
What is sad, is due to very high per click charges on many Google Ad campaigns we have run of late, the conversion of sales from the cost of advertising is the worse of ANY advertising from Television, to Newspaper, etc. that I have had since being in business dating back to 1978, and by a wide margin I might add!!

What is so disgusting in my opinion is because of Google's monopoly that our dear friends in the liberal government conveniently look the other way from (Google is one of the top political contributors to liberal causes, including Obama himself), I and others are forced to "Hire" this failure of an advertising company that Google is!!

And YES, Google is an advertising company since more than 90% of profits are from advertising, NOT android phones or all the freebie services Google uses as bait.

If this were 1985 and Google was not a monopoly, they would be out of business faster than you could say "GOOGLE" for such terrible advertising results!!
BUT since they have a monopoly while Obama and Rino Republicans such as Greg Walden look the other way, they get away with such horrible advertising results where alleged fraud and result manipulation are used as a cover to drive in even more profits for this disgusting and despicable company that the news media so loves and adores and also never calls into account!

Another clear issue that is also obvious here is the fact that Google is the ONLY search engine that gets the search WRONG organically (likely to further drive in Adwords $$$).

As noted earlier, my web page for TMC Aquarium LED is the ONLY complete, authorized/authoritative, original, selling this product in the USA!!
Yet Google has other sites higher in search, whether out of this country or worse, one that is only selling a few out of date TMC AquaRay products with no authoritative support to back up their website.
Is this a good user experience Google?
Of course not, but that is what you get with one of the most incompetent persons running Google search in Matt Cutts. I would argue that he is a liar as well, but since I do not know the man, I can only judge his results, which are clearly those of incompetence at the very least.
One also has to wonder about this man and Google in general, when they put forth a "webmasters" tool to report spam, and clearly spammy and factually wrong results remain, so this clearly is just a gimmick or publicity stunt to make Google look like they care about search results when obviously they do not.
