Video response to www.youtube.com YTWatchdog is calling out Zipster08 for making a video riding on the coat tails of fame about the ItGetsBetter campaign. The only problem is YTWatchdog was playing the wrong video. The video YTWatchdog was playing was Do you KNOW who your FRIENDS are. www.youtube.com That video was about him asking for some help from other big people he helped promote back in the day. Zipster08 was one of the top dogs of YouTube back in 2006 and early 2007. He was one of the original YouTube partners www.youtube.com and as such YouTube heavily promoted him until the Partner Program was expanded. Even though his regular view count is not what it used to be, he has been featured on WebSoup www.youtube.com and on JimmyKimmel www.youtube.com Zipster08 was one of the first people to upload a It Gets Better video and according to his video description he was inspired by WhatTheBuckShow to do it www.youtube.com See some of the biggest YouTube stars colab with Zipster in this old Christmas classic www.youtube.com See Zipster hang out with CharlesTrippy and Sxephil www.youtube.com www.youtube.com was a colab channel Zipster had with CharlesTrippy Zipster08 on Vidstatsx vidstatsx.com YTWatchdog I am not going to accuse you of intentionally misleading your audience however it is clear that you did not do your research before you just ran and grabbed a camera.

www.AquacultureFacts.org Anti-salmon farming critics have repeated claims of wild salmon extinction in British Columbia. Is this true? Are salmon going extinct? Not at all. Not even close. In fact, Fraser River Sockeye (near Vancouver) just returned in high numbers not seen in 100 years. First the activists said salmon farms were driving the Pink salmon to extinction. But since these erroneous claims were made, Pink salmon have returned to BC rivers in record high numbers. To divert attention away from record pink salmon returns, activists then said that the Fraser river sockeye were at risk - again because of BC salmon farms. But again, the 2010 return of sockeye salmon was the highest witnessed since 1913. Activists such as Alexandra Morton and John Volpe have repeated these extinction claims - claims that were designed to tarnish the reputation of BC farm-raised salmon and ultimately threaten the livelihood of thousands of hard working British Columbians. This video was produced to capture these claims and provide the public with the truth.

www.americanroadmap.org Congressman Paul Ryan continues his efforts to advance an adult conversation on the urgent need to protect Social Security for current and future generations. Ryan's efforts were met -- again -- with false attacks earlier today on CNN's Situation Room in a spirited exchange with Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. By pushing desperate demagoguery and no solutions, leading Democrats threaten to shred the critical social safety net as our crushing burden of debt explodes and our critical health and retirement security programs collapse. Facts on Social Security and Ryan's Roadmap Should politicians continue to cling to the unsustainable status quo, Social Security will not be able to meet its promise to our seniors, imposing painful benefit cuts on those most reliant on this critical program. The Social Security Administration continues to warn of across-the-board 22% benefit cuts for seniors in the heart of their retirement when the Trust Fund is exhausted. Social Security continues to run annual cash deficits, with over $5 trillion in unfunded liabilities. To meet this challenge, Congressman Paul Ryan offered an invitation for solutions -- putting forward a specific plan the Congressional Budget Office and the Social Security Administration's Chief Actuaries confirmed would save Social Security, making it sustainably solvent for current and future generations. Ryan's legislative proposal -- HR 4529, A Roadmap for America's Future -- makes no changes to ...
