Earth Day, 2013

It’s Earth Day again! Time to start at least saving the environment for free if you haven’t been already, and maybe even plant some trees and donate to a worthy charity, like The Conservation Fund. If you want to know why I prefer The Conservation Fund, read this.

Want to do even more to save the environment? Start at home with this list of fifty ways to help the planet.

Now, get out of your home or office and spend some time outdoors, or at least watch this video if you can’t.

Where I Stand Politically

I am neither Democrat nor Republican, for both suggest that I may be stagnant on certain issues with an unwillingness to learn. Nor am I Moderate, Centrist, or any other political affiliation, for all suggest the same limitations.

I will never stop learning, and when my decision is required, I reach that decision logically after considering all available facts. I am a human being as fallible as any other, full of hope for what mankind can create and fear for what it can destroy, and I do not stand with, nor do I identify with, any particular political party.

Green Shipping?

Occasionally, I hear someone ask which shipping company is the most environmentally conscious. Look, the answer is simple. If you want to ship something in a “green” manner, just mail it. Why? Because the mail truck would have gone to the destination regardless.

Mail trucks deliver mail to the destination every day except Sunday, while most delivery services follow the same schedule but only travel to the destination when they have a package to deliver. No matter what kind of fuel they use or how high-tech their trucks are, two trucks will always release more carbon emissions than one truck, so choose the one that already has to visit the destination.

If environmental issues bug you too, please feel free to stop by Save the Environment for Free and Why I Chose the Conservation Fund.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! Now that January 1st is upon us, it’s a great time to make sure that your browser is up-to-date, change your passwords, start a blog or start posting again if you have been neglecting your blog, and provide a mobile phone number for your WordPress.com account (if you have one) as an additional account recovery option.

MacManX.com had a great 2012, and I’m sure you’ll have a great 2013!

Election Day

Depending on your time zone, election day (November 6, 2012) is either here or fast approaching, which means that it’s time to vote. Make no mistake about it, this is an important election and the polls are still close.

If you haven’t already voted, don’t stay home today. Your vote does matter. Visit your polling place to vote or drop off your mail ballot if you forgot to mail it.

As always, please research each candidate so that you can make an educated, logical, and unemotional decision. Choose the candidate who has the best chance of giving you your ideal America.
