Inventing the 21st Century Economy, Now!

It's time to invent a new economy. It's time to finally bring the 21st Century economy into the present.

What we need to do is to invent a new economic model utilizing today's technology, that creates a world of freedom, mobility, and entrepreneurship. We need a model not dependent on massive capital efforts, or on bogus speculation by Wall Street tycoons with things like derivatives, but one built on sustainable growth that produces lasting value.


Veteran's Day 2010. It is also celebrated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in other parts of the world, falling on November 11, the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. (Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice.) The war to end all wars it was billed. Unfortunately, it wasn't. That's why today we remember those in uniform or who have worn the uniform to defend this country or this country's interest.

Look out for the landing...

Thoughts from the past to ponder on this Nov. 11, 2010 (from a speech by Col. Robert G. Ingersoll, 1888):

Disgusting: "Democrats" vs. Progressives

This is what's disgusting to me: That President Obama and the leaders of the "Democratic" Party see Progressives as a greater threat than Republicans.

If only they showed Progressives 1/10th of the willingness to shift or compromise than they show to the Republican extremists!

Obama and the DNC: GET THE WORD OUT!!!

The 2009 deficit was $1.42 trillion dollars. Much of that was due to the Bush era (or Bush error) tax cuts. The rest was from reduced revenues due to high unemployment, payouts for unemployment benefits, the two wars/occupations, increases in Social Security payouts, and less than $200 billion from the stimulus spending and tax cuts. There are a lot of people who think the stimulus was responsible for most of the deficit. The Democrats failed to make the truth known.

Multinational Corporations

Size and Income

Nu Carlyle Mortgage Companies

Could Carlyle Management Group, starring executive B. Edward Ewing of Jasper,IN and of Rancho Santa Morgan LeFay have anything to do with the mortgage deal of the present, and something to do with the Ruth Lilly Foundation ? The answer is yes and it also has something to do with secret consolidation of California-Florida citrus holdings using portals of both the Ball and Lilly Foundations.

The Blog Wars, Part 1 - Obama's Golden Plane

This is the first of a few videos which describe my personal experiences with numerous right wing fanatics. Going back to 2006, my own war with them began and continued for almost 4 years until I realized it was a complete waste of time. Trying to talk to them is no different than trying to get the war criminal bush to admit he was wrong about almost everything. Deluded people are dangerous and should be handled accordingly. The upcoming videos will show exactly what I mean.

Bush's "book tour"

Regarding the various recorded comments of George W. Bush in support of his effort to sell his latest pile of crap:

How our republic could die in the age of Trump - in a stunning parallel to the fall of Rome

Thom plus logo The American republic could die, just like Rome. Wavering for some time on the verge of becoming a complete oligarchy, America is on the verge of flipping from a democratic republic to a strongman or autocratic form of government, something that's happened to dozens of democracies in the past few decades, but never before here.
