During my 71 years I have received a BA in Biology from UNT, MA in Social Ecology from Goddard College (thesis - alternative 5 year plan for Nepal);and have been a teenage ornithologist; curator of a museum; teacher in public schools, colleges, nature centers, parks; Capt in the USAF; successful businessman, developer, contractor, and designer and builder of alternative structures (creator of the vertical crawl space concept),agriculture agent, Peace Corps volunteer in the Philippines (1988-90);Belize (2000-2002)Crisis Corps (2005); agriculture agent; social worker; environmental educator creating the first approved curriculum for Tamaulipas, Mexico; park ranger at Grand Canyon NP; community developer; Earthaven Ecovillage member; owner/manager of Hummingbird Lodge and Educational Center; International tour leader; co-author of Pokernomics, developer of eco-tourism, photographer, and writer. I am single living a very simple lifestyle on a houseboat in the small village of San Antonio Rio Hondo, OW District, Belize. I have lived in 8 countries for over a total of 12 years. Basic beliefs: I do not condone the use of drugs but the only way to reduce crime on the streets and in politics is to legalize it so there is no money in pushing or controlling it. Instead of giving a trillion dollars to the banks and corporations, eliminate the 1.2 trillion dollars in student loan debts. This will free up money to get our economy going again. Health: Decide on a life time amount and credit each citizen that amount and they can use it as they need. When they run out, they are on their own - this includes congress. To reduce the monopoly of corporations, eliminate all tax deductions and writeoffs over and after gaining 10 percent of the national business. We are not saying they can't get bigger but the tax payer will just not subsidize for the increase size.I don't like more laws so regulate by eliminating subsides through the tax system of tobacco products, liquor, etc and prohibit their advertising on any public media or place.
