This is my personal business Blog and Store and it is my opinion and philosophy. You are free to look elsewhere for information but you will always get it from my heart. I speak my mind honestly, that you will always get.
Every story or bit of information is vetted as much as I possibly can. We are not Facebook which has more fabrication that a Hollywood Hills plastic surgeon. We will not knowingly misrepresent or jump on the bandwagon until we know the facts. Funny how facts seem to be lacking in any news today.I am responsible for it's content.
Of course, ALL content on this site is fully protected under Copyright law. Any commercial use without permission is not allowed. If you personally use something, I would expect to have my source cited.
Information here such as PDF's and worksheets along with articles is for Personal Use. The idea is to spread information and help to those making their lives better, learning new things and looking to the future. Please help yourself and let us know how we can help you.
Please remember that we bear no responsibility for the use of information, personal views and downloads. Use them at your own risk.
One of the primary purposes of this blog is to present topics and encourage discussion. This is what opens minds and creates FREE SPEECH.
That said, we do have a policy that I think is simple and easy for all to follow:
We hold all comments until reviewed and approved until you have a track record on this site.
Language. Well this is not a family exclusive show and you will find at times me expressing myself in a colorful way. I just don't have to do that all the time so keep it light or we will decide for you.
Comments must be civil to each other. There will be no tolerance for hate speech, threats or attacks on anyone. All comments must be taken in context and be a meaningful part of the discussion. Respect each other point of view or don't comment at all.
No Spam or links to other sites. Spam will get you banned immediately and just using this site to see your Widget will get the same. Information is one thing, we all know Spam when we see it.
The final say as to comments we reserve for Shortaxe. We will not approve comments and will block anyone who does not follow a civil protocol.
