“Fiscal Cliff” put in a much better perspective

“Fiscal Cliff” put in a much better perspective

Lesson #1

1. U.S. Tax revenue:          $2,170,000,000,000
2. Fed Budget:                $3,820,000,000,000
3. New debt:                  $1,650,000,000,000
4. National debt:            $14,271,000,000,000
5. Recent budget cuts:           $38,500,000,000

Let’s now remove 8 zeros and pretend it’s a household budget.

1. Annual family income:               $21,700.00
2. Money the family spent:             $38,500.00
3. New debt on credit card:            $16,500.00
4. Outstanding credit balance         $147,710.00
5. Total budget cut so far:                $38.50

Got it???……Ok now,

Lesson #2

Here’s another way to look at the Debit Ceiling:

Let’s say, as an example, you come home from work and find there has been a sewer backup in your neighborhood….and your home has sewage all the way to your ceiling. What do you think you should do?  Raise the ceiling, or remove the shit??


The Numbers Are Now Talking

Sometimes you just cannot argue with the numbers. If these numbers are correct and true, the USA has bigger problems on their hands other than who was elected President.

From Bill O’Reilly’s message board:

Most everyone suspected fraud, but these numbers prove it and our government and media refuse to do anything about it.

As each state reported their final election details, the evidence of voter fraud is astounding. Massive voter fraud has been reported in areas of OH and FL, with PA, WI and VA, all are deploying personnel to investigate election results.

Here are just a few examples of what has surfaced with much more to come.

* In 59 voting districts in the Philadelphia region, Obama received 100% of the votes with not even a single vote recorded for Romney. (A mathematical and statistical impossibility).

* In 21 districts in Wood County Ohio, Obama received 100% of the votes where GOP inspectors were illegally removed from their polling locations – and not one single vote was recorded for Romney. (Another statistical impossibility).

* In Wood County Ohio, 106,258 voted in a county with only 98,213 eligible voters.

* In St. Lucie County, FL, there were 175,574 registered eligible voters but 247,713 votes were cast.

* The National SEAL Museum, a polling location in St. Lucie County, FL had a 158% voter turnout.

* Palm Beach County, FL had a 141% voter turnout.

* In Ohio County, Obama won by 108% of the total number of eligible voters.

NOTE: Obama won in every state that did not require a Photo ID and lost in every state that did require a Photo ID in order to vote.

Imagine that!

How Hosted IP-PBX Helps With Business Continuity

Carolina Digital Phone Hosted IP SolutionsHosted IP PBX service or digital phone service can help with business continuity. When a major catastrophic event happens or equipment failure occurs, a business continuity plan must be in place. Often, traditional phone lines fail. When these phone lines fail, a digital phone may continue to work if the Internet is still operable. Even if one server fails with digital phone service, there is usually more than one server to ensure that phone lines are always available. Having both types of phone lines can aid with disaster recovery.

How to get an Email Hosting Plan that Truly Suits Your Small Business

How to get an Email Hosting Plan that Truly Suits Your Small Business.

November 2012 – When it comes to business email hosting, if you are new to this, you are in for quite a shock. You see, the premier business email service out there these days is Microsoft Exchange. Now while there is nothing wrong with Exchange on the surface, this email hosting service is not necessarily geared towards smaller businesses. when you have a large business and you need a big time hosting plan, Exchange is a good option. But for smaller businesses Exchange is far too large and far too expensive to justify.

Another alternative to Microsoft Exchange is SBS or Small Business Server. However, to believe that this service does what the name seems to suggest, giving a low cost alternative for email hosting to smaller businesses is a very naive way to look at what they offer. Much like Exchange, this service is not really extended for the small business as is represented by it’s high cost and it’s large scale packaging.

So what is a small business owner to do when they are looking for an affordable email hosting service. One very viable solution is Dataglide. What separates Dataglide from other email hosting services is that unlike SBS or Exchange, Dataglide caters to all users big and small. They do this by providing scalable email hosting solutions.

What this means is that you only get what you need. This makes your system more effective and also more affordable. When you are ready to scale up or perhaps scale down, you can do so easily with Dataglide without the upgrade affecting your current hosting service. What this does is puts you in the divers seat as to how much hosting you’ll need and how much you’ll have to pay, unlike SBS or Exchange that has a take it or leave it business mentality.

When it comes to running a business one of the worse things you could do is waste resources and money, but that is exactly what Microsoft Exchange and SBS would have you do. However, with Dataglide you get only the email hosting you need at a price you can afford. No wasting large email hosting plans on small capacities and no wasting money on a service that you don’t need on such a large scale.

North Carolina’s VOIP Telephone Company providing Hosted PBX services anywhere

In North Carolina Carolina Digital Phone offers the ability of reducing communication cost by utilizing a SIP enabled IP PBX phone system instead of a traditional PSTN PBX network is the first advantage people think of when switching to an IP based PBX phone system. Essentially phone calls made over an IP network are free. Typically an IP PBX by-passes the wholesale charges made by the incumbent telephone company. (AT&T, Verizone, Qwest, SBC, Bell South and Sprint) This by-pass occurs as the customer is connected to a SIP enabled trunk provider, via an broadband Internet circuit like a data T1 line, as opposed to multiple telephone lines to the incumbent phone company’s switch. The SIP provider will use the Internet to by-pass the long distance and international charges as long as the distant end party is connected through a SIP enable connection. For example, an international call that is placed over an IP PBX will be carried on the IP network from the point of origin to a break outpoint in a foreign country. The SIP provider will incur its capital costs of the IP infrastructure and only the wholesale charge for the foreign national leg of the call. Previously, the service provider would have to pay charges to the local phone company, an international carrier and the foreign carrier. The end result is long distance and international call charges are significantly lower than traditional phone companies.

Benefits of an IP PBX Phone System:
Simplify. An integrated infrastructure that supports ALL forms of communication allows more standardization of equipment and a single cabling infrastructure. This leads to a further overall fall in operational costs.

An IP Telephony system is based primarily on software rather than hardware, making it easier to alter, up grade and maintain. IP Telephony allows you to safely set up a fully functioning office anywhere a broadband connection is available including the home office and telecommuters.

Traditional telephone systems are difficult to expand or upgrade, it is easy to outgrow your current system and you may need to replace hardware or, even replace your entire system. IP Telephony systems however are easy to upgrade in line with your company as it grows, as your needs change your IP Telephony system can adapt easily to your changing telecommunications requirements.

Easy Installation.
IP Telephony allows corporate users to use a single high-speed Internet connection for all voice, video, and data communications. This is known as convergence and is one of the primary driving forces behind corporate interest in VoIP. As we have seen VoIP is not just about reducing call costs, it gives companies much more than that. By using a single data network for all communications, it is possible to reduce overall operating costs, increase employee efficiency and allow greater flexibility in communications than ever before.
