In 2006 I was a member of a select committee of the Philmont Staff Association to advise Philmont Scout Ranch about opposing El Paso Natutal Gas's plan to drill and frack in the Valle Vidal in Carson National Forest. I studied the technology of horizontal gas drilling and the environmental effects associated with it. We defeated the plan proposed by El Paso Natural Gas. have been an active opponent of urban gas drilling in Fort Worth, TX since 2006. My present focus is global warming and the ominous effect of increasing atmospheric CO2.

An Impeachment Issue That Has Gone Begging This article poses a question about impeachment that has no obvious legal answer. The question goes to interpretation of "sole power" and "discretion". The answer could be the Achilles heel of the US Constitution.

When will the fed stop raising the interest rates? Aren't the interest rates high enough already? This article is republished from Quora. It is my response to a question posed on that site. It explains the disconnect between Federal Reserve interest rates and the state of the economy.

The focus is a particular graph that is published in a Wikipedia article and appears in some YouTubes. It illustrates the importance of distinguishing between the rentier economy and the real economy.

About Money, the Federal Budget, and Taxes This is the first article of a planned series about the nature of money, why it is accepted, how it is used, what it is used for, why we have crashes, recessions, and depressions, whether anything can be done about these situations, and if so, how it could be done.

Trump must divest or put every business asset he owns in a blind trust or the Republic is doomed The most critical issue is not getting the attention it deserves. A head of state who keeps his businesses when he is inaugurated is a man who is for sale to the highest bidder. This cannot be allowed. Now is the time to stop his attempts to avoid a clean brak.

Take a break. Watch this video (non-political) It's just about a man, his dream, his boat, and a mountain. There's a message here, though words fail me.

Question Received Wisdom; Learn What We Don't Know, And Let the Chips Fall Where They May Can you stomach received wisdom? I can't. This article is about what is wrong with the world's economy and recommends authors who know the answer and two of their books that can help us to learn what Wall Street doesn't want us to know. We can't propose changes in our system if we don't know what we don't know. The truth has been known for 5000 years. It's time we were told.

About that QE "lending" that has been paid off (NOT) This article exposes the lie Chris Cuomo told last night during the Town Hall with Jill Stein. The lie was first invented by Wall Street to mitigate their outrageous use of the money to pay their henchmen.

When the next crash comes do you want Hillary in charge? This article exposes the perpetrators of the 2008 crash. The source for this information is Michael Hudson's book, "Killing the Host". The case for a repeat of the QE solution if Hillary is POTUS in 2017 is made. Who will you vote for?

Business cycles--Why they occur and how to avoid them This article exposes the fraud that is impoverishing us. Dr. Michael Hudson's books and website gives us the answer. We need to understand this. It's a Ponzi scheme that was being used in the con game that John Perkins participated in as an economic hit man and is now being used on us.

The Fatal Flaw of Our Fiat Monetary System The Federal Reserve System and the US Treasury have used a smoke and mirrors story to explain QE. The story is obviously phony, and it is an example of the (deliberate) fatal flaw in the design of the system.

How the Sanders Campaign Is Going Off the Rails This article is a warning to the Sanders campaign that the focus is inappropriate at this stage. We need to be recruiting undecided Democrats and those who are now leaning toward Third Way candidate Hillary.
