Are auto club memberships worth it?  Ask anyone who’s used theirs and they’d tell you yes. Or, look at MCA reviews and you’ll also be convinced: people dig’ em. 

For a tire change, dead battery or even just a lockout, an auto club is well worth the response you get when you’re under duress and need your car to be made accessible right away.

But there’s a whole range of options to choose from, and the times have changed too.  It used to be the choice was easy: AAA was all there was.  Now, the landscape has changed and everyone seems to be offering auto clubs…cell phone companies, your car insurance company, and even your credit card.

There’s something to be said for every plan, but experts will tell you to consider a full-service club.  According to Consumer Reports:

“Consider a full-service auto club plan, such as those offered by AAA, the GM Motor Club, AARP, and the Better World Club if your family has more than one car or if you must cover more than one driver.”

-Consumer Reports

MCA Motorclub is a full service auto club plan.

Like those mentioned by Consumer Reports, MCA Motorclub offers a lot more than just changing flats, a jump, and retrieving locked up keys.  Their basic plan offers roadside assistance plus enticing extras like:

  • attorney fees
  • planning and travel reservations
  • accidental death benefits
  • bail bonds
  • discounts on prescription drugs
  • discounts on vision care
  • discounts on dental care
  • daily hospital benefit
  • credit card protection

The prescription drug benefits alone could end up paying for the membership.  The dental is good too: the average U.S. citizen pays $38 a month in dental services.  With a basic MCA Motorclub plan costing about half that, it seems to be a real deal.  Worth it?  Yes.

If you do pay a lot for prescription drugs, you might also think the premium plans are worth it as well.  The “security platinum” package offers legal discounts and auto-related discounts on top of the rest.  It’s $39.00 per month and if you’re the average citizen paying $119 per month in pharmaceuticals then you might save a huge bundle with MCA Motorclub.

Why using your insurance company’s roadside assistance or towing benefits could cost you way more in the long run

Consumer Reports also warns that some motor clubs report your claims to your insurance company.  Many auto insurers will raise your premium if you use your roadside assistance benefits too often!  Some auto insurers will even take this data into consideration when considering you for eligibility for coverage.  MCA Motorclub is not your insurance company- it’s just your auto club. Just like is not your advertising end-all, but more of a spot to hedge your advertising business.

If your answer was yes, there are many opportunities out there you can work with. However, with so many opportunities available, it’s best to know how to choose one that fits you best.


How To Choose A Network Marketing Company?

Here are a few characteristic to take in consideration before joining a MLM business and having success in network marketing:

How long have the company been in business

It is advisable to work with a networking firm that has a track record in the market. This is the only way that your efforts will pay off for a long time.

Look for a company with more than six years of experience. A company that has been around for some time can give you more security and  confidence about building a down line with an organization that can sustain itself in the market, since most firms in the network marketing industry unfortunately have a 2 year life spam.

Company resources

Its best to work with a firm that has the resources required for it to grow, attract more clients, adapt to changing technology and pay commission.

Uniqueness of the products and services provided

To earn high commission in network marketing, you should work with a company that offers unique products and services, this way you don’t struggle with competition. The products and services should be unique in a way that customers will be attracted to them and interested in buying every month. This is why we find companies and opportunities that have a strong produce line in a much better class of success and results. Empower Network is one such MLM marketing program to be creating those results for their respective members and affiliates.

Demand of the product or service

Its a good idea to ask yourself whether the product or service offered is in high demand in the market place and if X firm offers great value to customers. Additionally take in consideration that products or services must be provided at a reasonable price. Take time to look at whether there is an untapped market looking for what you are selling. As always there are laws to adhere to to make sure you are not being deceptive or misleading about your product’s benefits and advantages to take into consideration.

Sustainability of the service or product

It is good to consider whether the product or service you provide is sustainable. if you are planning to create along term business is good to project yourself many years in the future and find out whether the product or service you offer will still be valuable to the customers in the future.

This will ensure you earn long term income in your networking efforts. Be cautious about programs like Dubli Network who may seem hot at the moment, but are in a grey area when it comes to being under review by legal governing bodies in the network marketing laws space.

Digital Products

Now days with the many changes and the opportunities technology offer us, there are even network marketing companies that offer digital and information products.These are a good business models if you are technically savvy and enjoy working with computers.



On April 13, 1917, exactly one week after officially joining the First World War , President Woodrow Wilson issued Executive Order 2594, creating the Committee on Public Information (CPI), which was in control of “issuing information to sustain morale in the United States, administering voluntary press censorship, and…developing propaganda.” One important subcommittee, or division, created under the CPI was the Division of Pictorial Publicity (DPP). A report written in December of 1917 describes the DPP as the committee to be contacted when other government departments required posters, cartoons, or other artwork. To encourage artists to help the DPP during World War I, a letter was written in early 1918, which quoted Herbert Adams, President of the National Academy of Design:

There is to be a great campaign of pictorial publicity to emphasize the needs of our government. What more important or patriotic service could any man do than to create a war poster so striking, so beautiful, or so impressive that it drives its message home to every eye, and makes an indelible impression on the millions of people who will see it.

Tanfer Emin Tunc discusses the relationship between the DPP and the United States Food Administration (USFA) during the First World War. She specifically examines how the “USFA posters used women as abstract icons to represent the United States and its war aims, while simultaneously suggesting that women could best serve as ‘kitchen soldiers’ on the home front.” She further examines the idea that as a result of these propaganda posters, “women also became the protectors of American values.” However, this essay will examine other posters directed at women, which show an increased acceptance of women helping in the war effort outside of the home, rather than only in the kitchen. Although there were many posters endorsed by the USFA that directed women towards the kitchen, the organizations endorsed in the following posters were a step towards breaking the traditional societal norms.

Before examining the posters, however, the method of propaganda analysis must be discussed. Months before the official outbreak of the Second World War, Marjorie Van de Water wrote an article warning the public against government propaganda. In it, she describes propaganda as “an assault against intelligence…propaganda never appeals to the mind. It rouses the emotions. It takes advantage of all the prejudices, the hates and loves that are already in man’s heart.” Although she does not give an exact method for analyzing propaganda, Van de Water cautions against: appeal to emotion, slogan, general statements, ‘haste,’ “indirection, innuendo, insinuation, and suggestion.”

However, by the early 21st century, Sheryl Tuttle Ross suggests a different model for recognizing and analyzing art propaganda, which model this paper will be using. Ross claims that to properly define propaganda, one must first take into consideration four premises. “They are 1) an epistemically defective message 2) used with the intention to persuade 3) the beliefs, opinions, desires, and behaviors of a socially significant group of people 4) on behalf of a political organization, institution, or cause.” With Ross’ definition of propaganda, as well as Van de Water and Jewett’s cautions, in hand, one can better analyze art propaganda while keeping in mind her suggestion that “messages presented through works of art are often not in the form of an argument but rather made through the use of icons, symbols, and metaphors.” This essay will be following Ross’ steps and her suggestion to evaluate posters directed at women in the United States during World War I, also keeping in mind that “we must offer details about the content of the work, and demonstrate how a message functions to mislead individuals.”
