Our Millionth View

Privacy And Our Millionth View

 

 

 

Coming Soon

 

 

 

 

  Greetings readers , it is with some measure of both pride and pleasure that we here at YouViewed announce that sometime within the next two weeks or so , assuming viewership rates remain somewhat stable , we will be receiving our one millionth view . 

   That being said , we have a question for our fellow WordPress bloggers . Do any of you know how we could identify who provides us with that notable milestone ? As time draws nearer the editors will be able to narrow the time of the event down to the individual day but is there a way to track individual readers and the timing of their visits ?

   As I write this it dawns on me that the whole concept of tracking individual readers , visiting times and their views is completely antithetical to what we here at YouViewed stand for and gives me pause . Forgive us for considering the notion of tracking our readers . It was an ill-conceived notion . 

   In light of the privacy conundrums that have only now become self-evident to us we would still very much like to be able to share our celebration of our millionth view with the reader responsible for that view , whether publicly or privately . If any readers have any ideas on how or if it is possible to identify the millionth viewer we would greatly appreciate the tip . Thank you , editor 

 

 

 

Update: We reached our millionth view on Wednesday night without a hint of who that viewer was so the privacy issue is moot . What isn’t moot though is this blogger’s desire to find a job so if any of you know of some work available for a blogger with some editing and social media skills please contact us at mail@youviewed.com . Thanks

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Guns And Pot: Which States Are Friendly To Both?

 

 

 

 

” A Reddit user recently posted a graphic called “The Venn Diagram of Cultural Politics,” showing which states allow at least some citizens to use marijuana, which states recognize gay marriages, and which do both. The chart got us wondering: Which places embrace the personal freedoms beloved by the left and the right? Where can you buy both a vibrator and a Big Gulp? Where can a gay couple not just marry but avoid a high sin tax on the cigarettes they smoke after sex? Where can you carry a gun while passing a joint?

  The image below tackles that last question. If you include states that have legalized marijuana for medicinal purposes only, there are now 24 states that permit pot. There are 42 states where an adult non-felon’s right to carry a concealed gun is either unrestricted or subject only to permissive “shall issue” laws. Sixteen states fall into both categories.

  If you narrow the question, though—limiting yourself to places that allow marijuana even without a prescription and concealed carry even without a permit—the intersection shrinks to contain just one state. The Guns and Dope Party has found its regional base.”

Enactment Of This Law Will Set A Dangerous Precedent … Sign The Petition Now

 

 

Anchorage Petition

 

 

 

” Florida is attempting to appease wealthy waterfront homeowners by permitting local municipalities to create ordinances that would ban anchoring anywhere near private residences and in particular, anchoring overnight for cruising boaters. The manner in which these ordinances could be written could actually effectively ban anchoring in large parts of Florida.

  Florida state politicians are attempting to circumvent the entire FWC Anchoring/Mooring Pilot Program by allowing any municipality not participating in the program to determine any minimum distance boaters can anchor from every private residence.

  Passage of an amendment such as this would not only make knowing where in Florida overnight anchoring is allowed an impossible task, but could effectively eliminate legal anchoring in nearly all of the state.
If you wish more information on this topic, you can view excellent articles at practicalsailor.com waterwayguide.com and at sailmagazine.com 

  Why should this matter to you? Because, laws enacted in Florida are being considered by waterfront communities as far away as Ontario Canada, even Australia and other overseas countries, and in all of the coastal states of the United States, including the Great Lakes.  

  These laws, if enacted, will create a precedent that could negatively affect your rights to enjoy the waters of your state or province. We need you to speak out and protect boaters’ and the public’s rights to use the waters of Florida.

  Please help us now, so that we don’t have to help you later when this comes to your town.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Probably The Best 2nd Amendment Speech Ever

 

 

 

Published on Jun 30, 2013

” Army veteran and cop tells it strait. A flawless speech ! “

“The largest number and the most powerful guns and other weapons are in the possession of the government.”

 

  “Let me say immediately that I too believe in gun control. However, I do so in the light of the knowledge that by far the largest number and the most powerful guns and other weapons are in the possession of the government. First and foremost, of course, the federal government, which has atomic and hydrogen bombs, as well as ballistic missiles with which to deliver them, fleets of warships, and thousands upon thousands of tanks, planes, artillery pieces, machine guns, and lesser weapons. State and local governments also possess considerable weaponry, though less than the federal government. But just the revolvers, rifles, shot guns, clubs, tear gas, and tasers in their possession are capable of causing serious injury and death, and frequently do so.

Moreover, the threat of deadly force is implicitly present in every law, regulation, ruling, or decree that emanates from any government office, at any level. The threat of such force is what compels obedience on the part of the citizens. Even such an innocuous offense as a parking violation is capable of resulting in death if a person persists in not paying the fine imposed and, when ultimately confronted with arrest, resists by physically defending himself.”
