Local Chamber of Commerce members just saw my video "Puppets of the Plutocrats" - by accident
It wasn't planned for them to see my video, twice. :evilgrin: My son installs computer systems for restaurants and hotels in Virginia, West Virginia, & North Carolina and he was invited to give a presentation this morning on the software and what it can do. There were an array of people in the audience, including many members of our local Chamber of Commerce. He hooked up his laptop to the big screen in the conference room, and after a 15 minute break, he was to begin his presentation.

Little did he know, the last thing he viewed on his laptop was my video. After plugging it in to the big screen, he left the room for a few minutes, until the break ended. To his horror, when he returned, there was my video playing on the big screen, apparently at the beginning of its third replay. My son quickly stopped it and with a red face told the crowd that was in no way part of his presentation. He said about half the room erupted in applause and said "great video!" The other half were Chamber of Commerce leaders who were not too happy with what had just happened. Hopefully, it won't hurt his prospects for future clients, but OMG, to be in the room when that happened would have been priceless. :D

Here's the video they saw:

6. Outstanding.
It makes me want to cry to think where we are headed. I am sending this link to a friend who is a union rep for the Postal Service.

8. Actually, local Chambers of Commerce are an excellent resource for small businesses and
entrepreneurs.
