RETRACTION Re: Joe Biden’s Gas Pump Buddy

Posted by Admin on October 3, 2008

Well, I sure made a mistake!  And, as it turns out it’s a rather big one.

I take little consolation in the fact that I wasn’t the only one to make the mistake, as I am the one who published a post on this blog about it when I should’ve at the very least waited until reviewing the audio for the debates to double-check that what I had heard (and what others had heard) was indeed accurate.

FOR THE RECORD:

The name that Senator Joe Biden mentioned in his anecdotal story about the man at the gas pump, was “Joey Danco“, and NOT Joey Stanko .

Now, I was originally going to do as many media sources do when they have made a mistake and merely delete the story, however, that would be more akin to covering up my mistake than setting the record straight.  So, along with this separate post, I will copy and paste a link to this notice at the very beginning of the original post.

I would like to take this opportunity to first apologize to my readers. I would never intentionally seek to mislead anyone about issues so important to this election.  I have no need to make up information regarding Senator Biden, nor Barack Obama.  Simply addressing the issues I believe makes a much more salient point about any objections I may have to their campaign.

I would also like to take this opportunity to apologize to Senator Biden, to Joseph Stanko, Jr., as well as extending my apologies to Joey Danco.  As a result of this embarassing learning experience, I resolve to double- and triple-check with as many sources as I possibly can before running with a story like this again if the opportunity ever presents itself to me again.

Again, I am truly sorry for this collosal misunderstanding.

Sincerely,
Michelle K.

A couple ways to help the McCain/Palin Campaign

Posted by Admin on September 14, 2008

I occasionally write up postings on my favorite conservative message boards that contains activist information.  Mostly these posts are along the lines of things like; writing to the media to complain about bias, to correct mis-information published, and to speak on issues, etc… .

One way that people are probably familiar with, but may not always think about are the great “word-of-mouth” opportunities that can arise when you are wearing a T-Shirt, put up a Yard Sign, or share bumper stickers with your family members, friends, neighbors, and sometimes even your co-workers, too (don’t get yourself in trouble).

There are several ways that you can help the McCain/Palin campaign out in this way…

First, you can buy merchandise directly from the McCain/Palin Campaign Store.  They even offer several package deals that contain an assortment of things for a special price.  You can view the available merchandise, and purchase items here: The McCain/Palin Campaign Store.

Many inspired, and artistically talented supporters and even professional artists are getting involved in creating Election 2008 merchandise.  This group of people also includes, your truly!  I opened my own CafePress store back on August 23rd, 2008, and I am having a lot of fun creating Pro-McCain & Palin, as well as Anti-Obama & Anti-Democrat designs for sale in my 2 stores which you can see here:

Just say NO to Obama/Biden 08 – http://www.cafepress.com/NO_ObamaBiden08
&
Sarah Palin 2012 – We’re Looking to the Future – http://www.cafepress.com/SarahPalin2012 “.

You can also sign up to design, create & sell your own designs by registering at CafePress: http://www.cafepress.com.  If you do decide to sign-up would you be so kind as to please remember to fill in the “Referred by” box on the registration form with my CafePress Store Address which is, “SarahPalin2012”.  I would greatly appreciate that!  I hope you have as much fun as I am having!  It’s easy when you are as inspired as I am right now… It’s easy to work “for Sarah”, easy because I forget it’s work! LOL

Categories, Tags & more…

Posted by Admin on August 13, 2008

Hi everyone,

As you’ve probably noticed I’ve changed the look of the site a bit.  Everything is still in the same “place” as it used to be in the sidebars, but I thought a change of “scenery” might do us some good! LOL

I wanted you all to know that I am currently re-organizing my catgories in an effort to “clean-up” the site a bit, and allow for easier navigation, and for research purposes.  Please, excuse the confusion until I get things “settled in”.  As you will notice there are a few categories that have been sub-divided already. I may also be using tags for some of the smaller classifications.  Not sure on that yet!

OK, well that’s all for now…

Stay safe & take care,
MichelleK
