Opie & Anthony Lawyers on a Youtube Takedown Mission

Apparently some random person got upset about a an Opie & Anthony bit/clip from a few years ago in which they make fun of someone with Cerebral Palsy. Basically normal everyday sort of thing from these guys. They offend people every second they are on the air so to bend over for such a complaint seems absurd. http://www.jacksonville-nchomesearch.com

Unfortunately, this lead to something much bigger. All our friends that give us tons of O&A shows and clips on Youtube are getting the banhammer with cease and desist orders. O&A brought it up today and fully support the fans in this argument here:

Everyone at the O&A Reddit are trying to figure out what to do. The idea seems to be that we are all going to upload a 40 minute clip of whatever we want with the title of “Opie & Anthony – Cerebral Palsy” just to make more work for the lawyers in which we aren’t actually using their material and they will be making false claims if they don’t listen to it 100%. I’m contemplating a dummy riding a bike for 40 minutes while The Benny hill theme plays in the background. Follow along on Reddit, or that video comments above to see what you can do. We lost over 150 episodes of Patrice O’Neal dudes. :(

laser treatment for back pain

A little something different here for those of us who suffer major back pain. Reading about laser treatment for back pain recently it is been said that the treatment is showing amazing results with the therapy.

Both chronic and acute pain can benefit from this procedure. Chiropractors recommend it for particularly stubborn and persistent injuries. Patients with arthritis, joint pain, and back pain have all reported significant pain relief after laser therapy.

Personal Creations Promotional Code

Personal Creations is a unique gift shop that focuses on many of the major holidays and personal events such as Easter gifts, Communion gifts, Mother’s Day gifts, and Wedding gifts. Just happened to find them today looking for a First Communion gift and was happy to see that there are a ton of personal creations promotional code listings on their site.

Anything you buy can be discounted from that page above. 10%, 15%, 20% off and many other discounts such as free shipping on $25 purchases or higher. A great one if you happen to buy something a little on the heavy side. There is also a pretty good one for birthday gift orders that hooks you up with 20% off with no minimum purchase price.

Get Yourself an Online Degree

Time to talk about something a bit more serious as I am looking to begin another degree soon myself. If you are like me you probably aren’t all that close to a university anywhere, so driving to school for 2 hours everyday isn’t the greatest use of your time. That is why the online degree programs at at an online university probably make a lot more sense.

Western Governors University is one of the better online universities I have seen based on the programs I have looked into. Basically I want to expand my business degree to a Master’s by adding in some tech expertise, and they have the programs that I am interested in. A Master’s in Information Technology.

Western Governors University is nationally accredited by the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC). WGU is also regionally accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, one of the major accrediting commissions recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).

It’s Obama Time!

Finally, the day is here. The Inauguration of the first African American President, Barack Obama (Inauguration Schedule). Love him, didn’t vote for him, or maybe even hate him, this is a great day for America. Whether you believe he is going to wave a magic wand and take care of all your problems (you are an idiot), or you just love the fact that the world will start to see us in a whole new light (no clever pun here), this is a day that should be remembered for the rest of our lives. Soak it in, and feel proud of America today.

Sure, many think he isn’t qualified. Many think that he is nothing more than a great speaker with a few catch phrases (“Hope”, “Change”, “Yes We Can”). I agree with them to an extent, but at the same time I can’t help but feeling excited. I still believe that we need him. We need him to be a real Man of the People. I can’t help but be happy for the country. For the African Americans, for all of us that voted for him, and mostly for the significance it has on the greatest country in human history. We see men as men. Our children will see that we can get along. We are in this together.

We have a long ways to go to dig ourselves out of this hole we are in. Economically floundering, a country in a war most don’t agree with (even though most did when it started), a country that is trying to find itself again. This country is in trouble, but we will persevere. We will come out stronger than ever. It is up to us, not Barack Obama. President Obama is the spokesperson for where we need to go, but in the end it is us that will get us where we need to go. It is up to us to make our voices heard, build ourselves back up, and to become the country we want it to be.

Relax today, enjoy the moment. Celebrate the historical significance of electing this man. After the celebrations are over, we still need to get to work.

We still need to pay our bills, and we still need to do more.

Applaud our troops when they come home. They didn’t start the war. They fought it though. For us. Give them the respect they deserve.

Americans… still believe in an America where anything’s possible – they just don’t think their leaders do.
~Barack Obama

Get involved. Do what you have to do to get yourself out of the hole you are in. I know that worrying about anyone else is nearly impossible for us when we are barely surviving ourselves. I know that it is easy to wish for a free pass. This isn’t reality. President Obama is not going to do it all for you. We still need to do it ourselves and for each other. This is a new beginning. This is OUR America. This is OUR time.

But I stand before you tonight because all across America something is stirring. What the nay-sayers don’t understand is that this election has never been about me. It’s been about you.
