Change Notice

September 3rd, 2008 No comments

Over the next few days you will notice some changes to the look and feel of Chris-Estes.com.  In addition to design changes we will be adding some functionality that we haven’t utilized.  Some of the technical changes we are going to make will be changing our feed burner address to a Google feed burner address.  The new design will take care of the bare space around the blog by adding more advertisements.  Yes the advertisers might not be everybody’s favorite thing to see on a page to clutter it up.  Since times are hard I can’t bring you the great and cutting edge stories with out increasing the advertising on my blog. So my entrepreneurship and marketing training is kicking in to utilize the space.

The advertisements are going to be based on content relevant ads that bring in revenue per click and others one I select.  The ones I select will be target to things I think you are interested in.  In order for me to receive revenue it will require you to make a purchase so of course I am only going to put up advertisements you would be interested in.  The banner and content ads are the only type of advertising I plan to us.

There is the thought of sponsored post.  But that would discount the type of post I plan to make.  Speaking of post.  I plan to talk more about politics and a little less this and that.  So for the next few months my theme is going to be Chris Estes on Politics.  I might sneak in a random post or two about just random interesting things.  So get ready and prepare as I plan to bring you coverage of the the National and local races that affect everyone but more specifically the things in my area that matter.  I am going to try and bring fair and balanced information.

Bloggers postings and musings are becoming more and more powerful and I would like for my voice to be heard and addressed.  I have to yet decided on a candidate for president.  Even though I am trending towards one based on the conventions. Within the next few days you are going to witness a change in direction of my blogs change.  As the major changes are in place I will make announcements on how you can utilize the change for you.

My feed url will be changing from a Feedburner URL to a Google Feedburner URL that will need to be updated in your feed aggregator.

Stay Stuned for future updates.

Latest News on Don Siegelman

September 3rd, 2008 No comments

So as political season on the National Stage is heating up often times we forget about others.  I am on a mass mailing list for the Former Governor of Alabama Don Siegelman.  I was out of the state during most of the preceding and not apprised of all the details except what my parents would give me updates on.  When I find something interesting I share it.  So enjoy the e-mail I received from Dana & Joseph Siegelman.

Dear Christopher,

Don Siegelman

Please join us and
call on the full Congress to find Karl Rove in contempt:

Urge your friends & family to email their Members of Congress now!

I was sitting on the floor of a radio studio in Denver, watching Air America host Thom Hartman interview David Sirota, syndicated journalist and author of The Uprising, while they talked about the presidential election and the politics to follow soon after. As David explained, “It is up to the people to hold our leaders’ feet to the fire; we cannot simply assume that they will take care of the issues that matter most to us.” This was my purpose in accompanying Dad to the Democratic National Convention.

It has been a month since Karl Rove refused to honor a lawful subpoena for his testimony by the House Judiciary Committee. He has seemingly slipped under radar while the excitement of the upcoming election takes over public focus. At the convention, Dad spoke about the need to restore justice and preserve our Democracy. He was received warmly; however, it was obvious that our Democratic leadership, in their usually idealistic manner, were already looking ahead to positive change under the Obama administration.

Part of those positives changes MUST BE to right wrongs and hold those accountable that have subverted our country’s system of justice. Having the truth come out in twenty years does nothing to stop partisan prosecution from taking place now. We cannot let the corruption of our justice system go unchallenged.

As hopeful as I am that this new administration will bring necessary changes to our lives as Americans, I am concerned that Dad’s case will be lost in the agenda of those taking office. We cannot win the battle without fighting in it! We have three weeks while the House reconvenes to bring Karl Rove to justice. WE HAVE THREE WEEKS to encourage the House to hold him in contempt and to not let “bygones be bygones” but to actually put a stop this administration’s lies, corruption, and abuse.

Please join me in calling our members of Congress these next few weeks. Encourage them to stand up to Karl Rove and to begin the process of really restoring justice in America. Do not think for a second that this situation is beyond your ability to help. Your voice WILL be heard, your efforts WILL be felt, and your prayers WILL be answered. We can protect our Democracy with YOUR help. As Dad has said, “If we stop protecting our rights, our rights will stop protecting us.”

Call, write, and go to www.ContemptForRove.com to urge your friends to join us and call on Congress today!

Many thanks,
Dana Siegelman
