The Selling of Energy Independence
6:20 am est
Any analysis of domestic fossil fuel production and use must acknowledge that independence for
U.S. energy has not been the national goal. Contrary to utopian dreamers and radical environmentalists, oil, natural gas and
coal are the backbone of power in any modern economy. This power extends both to the fuels themselves and to the political
security that is required for any economy to prosper. Therefore, it seems counterproductive to encourage corporatist to export
our own precious resources for the mere motive of higher profits. Unfortunately, their ill-conceived greed is at the core
of much of our countries instability.

Ben Bernanke's Banksters Legacy
3:11 am est
With Ben Shalom Bernanke set to depart on the last day of January 2014, the critique and speculation
of his tenure as Chairman of the Federal Reserve begins. The mainstream financial press is giving mostly favorable accounts.
Heretofore, such praiseworthy acclamations strike a shape contrast with the actual record of the state of the economy. However,
the admirers of the Fed and his specific enactments live in a time warp that only masters of the universe encounter. For the
remaining population, an intense struggle for survival is the actual experience, remembered from the Bernanke years.

Twenty Years of NAFTA Sucking Sound
5:10 am est
Ah, what a better world the Free Traders built. With the rush to the bottom, the commemoration of the
NAFTA 20th anniversary is a most hollow celebration. Those who have a memory of an actual economic prosperity, lament that
H. Ross Perot’s warnings were ignored. Business literates urged the public to elect Perot as President. Establishment
corporatist interests and corruptacrat officials joined forces to write a blueprint for economic consolidation and political
futility. The fruits of this endeavor only satisfy the appetites of the select cabal of manipulation.
