Become a Fan. You'll get emails whenever I post articles on OpEdNews
I am a writer living in bucolic Spokane, Washington.
It wasn't always this way, back in the day I was a restless wanderer. I left home and traveled to straight to Europe, came back and hitchhiked across America. I joined a carnival, then the Navy.
After the Navy it was time for me to become an upstanding, educated citizen. I went to college, three of them to be exact, and I still don't have a degree. Maybe I don't have a Phd from and ivy tower university, but I do have street cred.
I write because I am pissed off. I am incensed by the people who prevent us from becoming what we could be. Our country, and our world are in real trouble.
We who know the truth, and seek the truth, can set each other free.

No World Order
Today the US dollar is the world's reserve currency. That means many necessary commodities, including oil, are priced exclusively in dollars. Since every nation that conducts trade must accumulate dollars, our currency maintains its value.
The world has to buy our money.
