Five Social Media Tips for Anthony Weiner

*** begin quote ***

Representative Anthony Weiner has fessed up and admitted that he was the one sending lewd photos of himself on Twitter and that his account was never hacked. I write a lot about managing your online presence and digital dirt during a job search but the same rules apply for people who are trying to hold on to the jobs they have. Here are 5 tips for Weiner and anyone else out there dabbling in social media or even just corresponding via email.

HERE’S MY COMMENT:

Old Wall Street proverb (or at least where I first heard it) “When in a hole, stop digging.”

Imagine how this story would have died if he had just said: “I was fallen down stupid drunk and made a mistake. Let this serve as a warning to young people all over that it’s not only very bad to drink and drive, but to drink and tweet. Honesty I can’t imagine what I was thinking. I’ve apologized to my wife and she has generously forgiven me. I’ve apologized to the young lady, her response is hers. Now, I’m apologizing to my constituents, I hope they will too. I expect to be the butt of a lot of jokes. And, I deserve it. Thanks.”

It’d be long over. Nothing more than a footnote.

MONEY: The gallon of gasoline standard

I’ve been preaching silver to my friends. It’s shocking that people don’t recognize how devalued the dollar really is. A hockey team moved to Canada from Atlanta today and the radio guy said a few years ago that was unthinkable because the dollar vs canadian dollar was so lopsided Canadian businessmen couldn’t compete. The NFL wants a franchise is Toronto and again the writer referenced that the dollar being so weak allows Canadians to compete in signing players. I’ve also been following the disaster better know and the Federal Reserve- Bernake may be a smart guy and a depression era expert but he can’t get out of his own way and talks himself into trouble.

I like to use the 30¢ / gallon of gas (i.e., 3 silver dimes) and at today’s silver rule of thumb (20 x pre-64 face value) that means you have $6 for a gallon. :-) It’s so OBVIOUS! And, I remember gas at 20 with trading stamps and an ugly glass and the fellow cleaned the windshield, checked the oil, and spoke english. Argh!
