It appears there’s no stopping this runaway train! Our economy is a giant ponzi scheme and the word from the top is “It’s unstoppable, there’s no turning back and we’re gonna ride it to the end.”
This morning I read the following statement in the New York Times:
The Federal Reserve chairman, Ben S. Bernanke, [...]
I spent part of my morning comparing health insurance plans. Despite the fact that I’m not really interested in getting health insurance. I haven’t had health insurance for six years, nor have I felt any desire to get it. With the exception of an occasional cold, some muscle strains, chigger bites and wasp stings, I [...]
I have not written any criticisms of the Obama administration. But I can remain silent no longer.
What President Obama proposed today is nothing more than outright sustained murder for profit. Seven more years of destruction to bankrupt the common man and profit the war industry!
Out of respect for my many friends who campaigned [...]
The other day, I caught myself again longing for the pace of life I enjoyed in the third world. Life there is languid compared to life in the United States.
Most people will admit that their life is hectic, and I’m no exception. I think it’s because we have so much technology at our fingertips. [...]

In other words – a bully. Someone who isn’t above making stuff up. Someone who isn’t afraid to cut other people [...]
I was reading “After Glow of Games, What Next for China?” in this morning’s New York Times and the following paragraphs caught my eye:
Meanwhile, eight Americans were among a group of foreigners jailed after they tried to demonstrate about China’s Tibet policies. The authorities released the Americans on Sunday and placed them on a [...]
This just in: The Federal Government has earmarked 1.5 billion dollars, not for education or health care, but to help consumers continue watching television. According to an article in the San Francisco Chronicle,, after ordering broadcasters to shift from analog to digital television to clear the airwaves for emergencies, the federal government has earmarked $1.5 [...]
Having made our way through 5 airports over a period of 24 hours (Maui, LA, Phoenix, Houston, Managua) we arrived in Nicaragua with over 300 pounds of stuff. Not surprisingly, the Managua airport, with its 200 or so spectators pressed up against the glass airport walls to get a glimpse of the arrivals felt more [...]
Many have reacted with concern for our safety upon hearing that we are moving to Nicaragua. We take this reaction with a grain of salt given the prevalence of fearfulness in America today. Nevertheless, we decided to have a look at the facts.
Measured in rates per 100,000 people, we looked [...]
