Friendgiftr-Never a bad gift again

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of FriendGiftr. All opinions are 100% mine.

We want to let you know about a great gift idea as we head into the summer party season. FriendGiftr is a great help for a last minute gift for that birthday, housewarming, or graduation party you have to attend with no idea what to bring for a gift. To make this idea even better users are now able to buy and send real digital and/or physical gift cards anytime. Buyers can select from over 120 of their favorite retail and restaurant gift cards to buy $10, $20, $25, $35, $50, $75, and $100 gift cards. Our favorite part is what makes Friendgiftr unique. The receiver can use it any way they want, they can exchange the gift card given to them for any of the 120 merchants Friendgiftr offers for no additional cost and without the buyer ever knowing. They can also split the gift card across multiple merchants. We went to a party last weekend and needed to get a gift so we stopped last minute and picked up a fancy liquor set. When we arrived the party the host told us they had quit drinking, should have used FriendGiftr to send a gift card that day for sure. We could have even have done it from the iPhone using the service from the website, they also provide ways to get Friendgiftr, on Facebook, BlackBerry, and Android. It is a great idea and one we will remember from now on.

Ashley Greene hottest Vamp around


This week we picked a new comer that should have had a week before. Ashley Michele Greene who was born on February 21, 1987 in Jacksonville, Florida and went to University Christian School before transferring to Wolfson High School. When she turned 17 Ashley moved to Los Angeles, California, where she initially planned to become a model, but was told that she was not tall enough at 5′5.” She has the longest legs for someone of that height we have ever seen. Ashley is best known for playing Alice Cullen in Twilight films. Before that she started in commercials and has appeared as a guest on many popular television programs, such as Punk’d, Shark, Crossing Jordan. Ashley has made three Twilight movies and is reprising her role in the fourth installment as well. She has been in two other movies that went straight to DVD. In 2010 we should see her in the move Skateland which premiered at Sundance and Shrink. Since there is not too much eye candy in Twilight, Ashley stands out as the hottest vampire and adopted sister of Edward Cullen. She really has a pretty face and awesome body which is downplayed in the movies. Where it shines is when she appears on the red carpet and the TV talk circuit.

Happy Fourth of July

The reason we celebrate, and the reason we are free, all stem from the Declaration of Independence. The resolution went to congress on June 7, 1776, the first copy was read to congress on June28, 1776, it was debated starting on the first of July. The second of July congress declares independence, and then on the fourth they sign the document. Happy birthday to the United States of America you are 234 today and still the best has to offer. Here are three graphs from that document that say it all.

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

 We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States.


Kagan vote will be party line

It should not come as a surprise that Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan is drawing opposition from Republican leader Mitch McConnell, Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah, and Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. The Democrats hold a 59-41 majority in the Senate, and Kagan’s confirmation is a lock, although much like with healthcare the Republicans could to try and prevent a final vote. The Judiciary Committee is scheduled to vote on the appointment on July 13. The biggest problem beside the obvious lack of experience is more than likely this will be a rubberstamp for the Obama administration or any other democrat administration. We believe she was the wrong choice because she does not have legal experience or a judicial philosophy. When this senate approved Justice Sonia Sotomayor, was approved last year on a vote of 68-31. All of the votes in opposition were cast by Republicans. The problem is beside have no record to run on she did not give any red meat on how she would vote on the difficult cases, when and if she is a justice. She did have some statements that were not very Supreme Court Justice like which included it is difficult to take off the advocate’s hat and put on the judge’s hat a red flag that is something that needs to be watched. This should be closest vote since Justice Samuel Alito was approved 58-42, that year there were only four Democrats in favor, the other 42 against.

Earmarks No longer a Good Thing

The campaign season is coming full circle and politics as usual is a curse. This is really about time. The story is out of Kansas where there is a three-story Opera House arts enthusiasts in this south-central Kansas town were worried about running out of money for its $8 million renovation. So U.S. Rep. Jerry Moran stepped in and secured a $142,500 earmark in the 2009 federal budget to help pay off a construction loan and put patrons in freshly upholstered, crimson-cushioned seats. At the time he thought it was a big score. The tables have turned and now coming up on an August 3 primary the Republican U.S. Senate nomination might have been a curse. The earmark has his opponent, fellow U.S. Rep. Todd Tiahrt, firing at him that is no longer conservative and wants his share of government grabs. Back in the day bringing home the dollars from Washington got you reelected this has suddenly begun to backfire as government spending becomes a central issue in the midterm election. Incumbents both Democrat and Republican a like are getting hammered by challengers on voting to bail out the banking industry and the economic stimulus money. The tea party movement is fanning outrage about government excess. U.S. Rep. Todd Tiahrt is not clean either as a member of the earmark-prone House Appropriations Committee he sponsored or co-sponsored 135 earmarks in the 2008, 2009 and 2010 budgets worth more than $200 million. Politics has always been a blood sport but this year none of the old rules apply. It is more like Fight Club the only rule is there are no rules.
