End Citizens United Finds Renewed Momentum in 2017

In 2010 the Supreme Court made a decision regarding a conservative group by the name of Citizens United. Citizens United, a right wing production, wanted to argue for looser regulations and less strict control of how campaign financing works. Their obvious goal was to make sure that lobbying and special interests could play a major role in the political machine. Despite how obviously terrible this was, Citizens United succeeded in opening up the doors for more dark money flooding into the political world. Since then political action committees and progressive candidates around the country have been fighting in order to repeal the damaging legislation. One such group by the name of End Citizens United appears to have the inside track on actually making this happen.


End Citizens United was established by Tiffany Muller, who also operates as the President of the PAC. The reason that she established End Citizens United was simple: she wanted to make the name of her committee a reality. Where many other committees attempted and failed to do any long term damage to the Citizens United decision, End Citizens United looks like it is going to be much more effective and much more organized. The reason for their efficiency is simple: people are wanting their voices to be heard, especially after the tragic election of Donald Trump tot he highest office in the world.


Through the first quarter of 2017 End Citizens United saw donations like they had never seen before. Over 100,000 United States citizens donated to the cause and that helped to bring in nearly $4 million in such a short time span. Muller says that angry progressives and upset centrists know that Donald Trump is damaging the White House and the United States and that has been what has driven so much passion toward the project. Still, despite this high level of donations, the average amount given was only $12. This shows that End Citizens United is truly a united front of regular, every day citizens who believe that their voice is more important than their wallet and that they shouldn’t have to sacrifice one to gain the other.


End Citizens United is attacking the Citizens United decision in the most fundamental way possible: they are backing politicians who are promising and campaigning on bringing legislation forward to amend the decision. Most recently we have seen End Citizens United endorse Senator Sheldon Whitehouse. Senator Whitehouse has been a champion of campaign finance reform and having End Citizens United standing behind him bodes well for his re-election campaign heading into the 2018 election year. End Citizens United and Tiffany Muller know that 2018 is their biggest year ever so they are trying to raise nearly $35 million in advance.


Why Bob Reina Believes Talk Fusion Has Done Well

Bob Reina is always on the move in video marketing, and it’s been a field he’s passionate about and often writes about at the HuffPost and sometimes MarTech Advisor (http://www.martechadvisor.com/author/bob-reina/). Reina sat down with Inspirery and discussed what Talk Fusion means. He said the company doesn’t merely service small businesses but has also helped many bigger companies. He said what makes Talk Fusion special is that they value helping people make money just as much as making their own profits, which is why the company has used multilevel marketing as its model. He also says its helpful to get started with marketing products from within your own circle of friends as he did with friends from the police department. Learn more: http://inspirery.com/bob-reina/

Bob Reina always wanted to help people as part of his profession, which is why he started out as a Tampa police officer. But he later felt the disappointments of the job because of the long shifts and time away from his family, so he left and began to explore starting a business through direct selling. Most of the companies he started with ended up dissolving down the road, so he decided to do something different. In 2004 while on vacation, he found a need for being able to send videos through email, and three years later he and his friend Jonathan Chen came up with a program for that. Reina and Chen soon had video email software using WebRTC technology and that became Talk Fusion.

Today Talk Fusion has emails, newsletters, conferencing and a chat app that are all a part of its subscription. Talk Fusion associates sell the products and earn commission, and if they are very successful doing so they might earn a free luxury vacation or brand new expensive car. Talk Fusion now has free trials for the programs that don’t even need a credit card to use. Bob Reina has been a philanthropist as well as part of the Tampa community animal rescue and shelter societies, and he’s wanted Talk Fusion to help groups like those. Talk Fusion associates can now give a premium Talk Fusion account to any charity they want as part of this program.

The Keys To Hosting A Traveling Vineyard Wine Tasting

Holding a Traveling Vineyard wine tasting party in your home is a fun and informal way to relax with friends. It’s very simple to hold one of these parties and having a huge knowledge of wines is no requirement. It doesn’t require any preparation or cleanup time and only minimal grocery shopping is needed. It can also be very affordable depending on the wines you choose to feature.

One way to approach the wine tasting event is to concentrate on just one variety of wine with each bottle coming from a different region of the world. Another approach would be to limit the wines to just those that come from different areas of the state you are in. With any approach you take, it’s best to limit the selection of wine to just four or five varieties. In order to prepare everyone to taste the wines, it’s a good idea to start off with an aperitif wine or cocktail which refreshes the palate.

The wine accessories you will need to have on hand includes wine glasses, a corkscrew, water, a palate cleanser, a spittoon for each guest, a large bucket, tinfoil (for blind tastings), a white cloth, and notepaper as well as pens (for taking note). If you don’t own enough wine glasses they can be rented for the day for about $1-3 each.

The Traveling Vineyard is a company that sells wine through their network of Wine Guides. It was founded in 2001 in Ipswich, Massachusetts and is led by Rick Libby. Each Wine Guide operates as their own business and is usually run out of the Wine Guides home. The Wine Guides are able to freely set their own schedule, work environment, and income. The Wine Guides hold informal wine tastings in their clients home that feature the wines supplied by Traveling Vineyard, After the tasting, the client and guests can order any of the wines they enjoyed during the sampling.

To get started as a Wine Guide, the only requirements are to love wine and enjoy teaching people about it. Otherwise, they get all the training and support they need from Traveling Vineyard.
