Let's pay it off

November 7, 2016
When we pay the debt, we prevent a future bond sale, for Congress has already funded the current bonds. The money becomes available to loan. As borrowers pay it back, principal and interest reduce the debt more, and, in turn, become available to loan or invest. These loans are varied. First, to homeowners at 3.5% on a five year note for compressors and conversions to use their natural gas as a transportation fuel.

Another Death

September 21, 2016
These tragedies must stop. Police have stressful jobs. They must make life and death decisions in milliseconds. To often, though, they pick the wrong course, and someone dies, needlessly. All cops deal with the stress. Most make the right choices. Anyone can screw up, though they are good at their job, well trained and experienced. The price for the officer's error is higher, but we all pay the price.

Immigration reform and jobs programs

May 5, 2016
      My plan for prosperity seeks to create jobs by utilizing our natural gas supply to save our citizens money. With 65 million homes in this country, and 100 million cars and trucks parked at those homes, the potential workers required could be huge.       We have oil field workers idle, due to a glut of world oil. They can go back to work drilling for natural gas, as soon as we have a domestic market for this fuel.

The Koch Brothers and Economic Uncertainty

May 4, 2016
In defense of the Koch brothers, a variety of wealthy people write that they want an impartial Washington, one that spends wisely, regulates little, and advances no winners. They point out that we are in the slowest recovery in 50 years. What they fail to note is that speculators among the wealthy, including unregulated big banks, hedge funds and corporate players, plus day traders have been responsible for repeatedly stalling the recovery.

The Ukraine crisis threatens to spiral out of control

May 4, 2016
The Ukraine crisis threatens to spiral out of control. Each peace effort fails, as Russia fears loss of control of her border lands will again result in invasion, or loss of access to one of her few seaports. Past attacks were blunted by laying waste to her own motherland to stretch supply lines for her aggressors. Crude, but effective against Napolean and Hitler. After WWII, Stalin created a double buffer, first of the Warsaw Pact, then by the SSR's, including Ukraine and Belarus, and the Baltic States.

IMF, ECB and Natural Gas Expansion

May 4, 2016
What would be the effect of the IMF and ECB loaning Southern Europe funds for natural gas infrastructure expansion to the homes of their citizens, and to allow each government to issue credit to homeowners to compress it and convert their vehicles to burn it? A 1/4 Euro tax on diesel and quarter euro tax on natural gas would pay on the principal of sovereign debt. Nations would be able to service debt from increased revenues resulting from jobs created by infrastructure expansion, installation of compressors and conversion kits.
