  1. Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins too asist with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to
    get my blo to rank for some targeted keywords
    but I’m not seeing very good gains. If you know oof aany please share.
    Thank you!

  2. Spot on with this write-up, I absolutely believe this site
    needs a great deal more attention. I’ll probably be returning to read more, thanks for the advice!

  3. It was that thought, when realized, that I determined it was time for me to write my
    own Wealthy Affiliate review. Once you do that, the buyers’ defenses
    will go down and they can focus on the positive
    aspects of the product. You only need to do is learn the system, implement it and collect
    the money as an affiliate marketer.

  4. Is this it !? America to the highest bidder. It reminds me of those posts apocalypse movies where the poor finally rise up but in this case our situation is just tolerable enough that we just sit there watching dancing with the stars.the Koch brothers are buying supreme court justices Ted Cruz etc. How much more money do they need?destroy the world we’ll just build Elysium! !!

  5. Passive resistance and nonviolent dissidence. If every person that reads this post tweets and re-posts and shares this thought, we can show the corporations that we realize that we actually do have more power than they do. How can this be accomplished? Simple, let’s castrate the golden calf by visiting each and every Wallmart on their holiest of days(Black Friday), the day when they expect us all to trample each other for the lowest price so that the all mighty shareholders can receive there hard earned returns on investment, made of the backs of the worker. And what will we do once there? Here is the catch; nothing! If we show up in great numbers and just wander the isles aimlessly clogging up the arteries and parking lots of corporate theocracy and hurt them where it counts, in the wallet. In fact, buy something; a pack of gum and pay with pennies. If every socially conscious person wishing they could kick the king in the Ba**s did this, just think how magnificently we could hurt their bottom line. Peacefully protesting our corporate overlords. Pass it on.
