I started working in the tool & die trades in Everett (WA) in 1966. In those days there were 475-500 men who did NOTHING but maintain the calandering rolls for Everett's pulp & paper mills. There is a pulp & paper mill operating today at the north end of Vancouver Island (BC, Canada). This mill produces more than twice as much finished paper per year as ALL the mills in Everett did in the 1960's.

Everyone should watch this video by Economist Richard Wolff

NOTE: Look up what is an ESOP? (employee owned companies)
PLEASE HELP GET THOM TO SEE THIS VIDEO!!!

With the death of the Oceans imminent mankind will lose fish that account for 1/5 of the World’s protein. Worse still many – if not all – species of pollinators will not make it out the other side of an anthropomorphic warming event that is fully expected to last at least a couple thousand years. Pollinators, like the honey bee who simply can not survive in high heat (heat wave
Propaganda film put out in 1947 by the U.S. Dept of War describing how socities are divided against each other. Worth watching and the comparing with what is happening in the U.S. today.
WHITECO is nothing more than a veil for the Carlyle-Buckingham CIA which has done whatever it wants since Prescott Bush created his own tyrannnical fraction of Intelligence. The Kryder Estate has copious notes on WHITECO, an outdoor advertising monopoly, before and since the death of Clarence F. Kryder in 1950.
