Merchant marine experience on ocean research and oil exploration vessels in my youth. Ex-mechanical engineer, oil exploration equipment industry, commercial and military aerospace industries, SCUBA diving and respiratory protective breathing apparatus industries. Sport skin diver, spear fisher, scuba diver, fisherman, boat owner, football player, tennis player, husband, father, math teacher. Ex-Republican, not a fan of the Democratic Party either. Not very impressed with the reasoning ability of Progressives either, who seem gullible and incapable of envisioning the negative consequences of trying to create Utopia by law, but have a soft spot for them anyway because their heart is often in the right place. Long time interests include: political philosophy, ethics, economics, banking and monetary systems, criminology, the Second Amendment and gun control.
Tuesday, July 21, 2009 Let's Make a Deal, Part I - Green Shoots, World Great Depression, or a Brand New Car! (1 comments)
This article is dedicated to Monty Hall, host of the old TV game show "Let's Make a Deal".

Oh, he hasn't got around to mentioning how yet, but he will eventually. Mark my words, Government WILL find a way to tax YOU to cover the bankers' losses.

The SPP may be one of the most important Bush Administration programs that you never heard of. Why not? Well, if you knew that it is designing the North American Union, you might not approve. Better you should not know about it until it is a done deal.
