- This will be the last email update for a while as we
lock and load on business matters in Europe. I have my hands full
dealing with five nations over here and logistics involving four more.
It has been a long grueling summer in Europe but there is a PRNewswire
release and newspaper articles that will break soon and announce what we
have been working on. Those will definitely be sent out to the list.
For about the next 20-30 days, don't expect any email updates unless something
comes up that is so hot is has to be addressed to save America.
- There is one email update in the works involving the
Pentagon and A3 Skywarrior that might put the nail in that Bush coffin
and sink him, Congress and the Pentagon too on that grand lie. I
will get it out when I have time to do so but you can be sure that it will
come out before the elections so you can look at Bush and Congress in the
- Rumors on the streets are that the Conservative Right
party Fidesz plans massive riots and violence in Budapest tonight, Saturday,
September 23, 2006 directed at non-Hungarians. Odd, I thought only
the Far Left liked to riot to get their way. That was back when they
were dressed up at communists. Now that most of them have dressed
up as Far Right Fascist and Neocons, rioting and violence is okay. Nothing
is as it seems.
- Osama bin Laden is dead? No worry, DC has another
boogeyman to pull off the shelf to keep the Sheeple bolting into a stampede
to vote Republican or hunkered down fearing their shadow.
- Breaking news, via Sky News in Europe: UN Envoy
says "torture in Iraq is perhaps now worse than under Saddam Hussein".
Damn you, George Bush for giving America that black eye, crapping on our
nation, and shaming us before the world. The man is definitely a
war criminal and why he is trying to amend the War Crimes Act.
- VOTE ALL OF THE WAR CRIMINALS OUT ON NOVEMBER 7, 2006!
- As one of the email members pointed out DRAIN THE
SWAMP! Yes, we need to get the reptiles out of our federal government.
He said it one way, I say it another: flush the toilet!
- Bush has not done this alone. He has been aided
and abetted by many in Congress and they need to be sent home in shame
this year. By my count, 434 + 33 = 467 we can say goodbye to if America
decides it is time for the gallows to be pulled. If Americans do
not stand up and do it, they have no one to blame but themselves.
Save Rep Ron Paul and send the rest of them packing. Don't talk to
me about voting machines, avalanche their ass and they cannot cover that
up. Vote and then make sure outside the exit polling people know
that the landslide is against the status quo. There is only so much
they can cover up and the more we shine the light, the less then can pull
and get by with it.
- You can sleep well at night knowing that history is going
to treat George W. Bush as the worst, most pathetic, lousiest, lamest president
our nation had in its entire history. He has no place in the history
books that I would want my name associated with in any manner, but he is
just an itsy-bitsy part of a much larger cancer that affects our nation.
- One has to be careful on their sources for there is much
disinformation being spread around to spook the Sheeple into a stampede
to the polls to vote Republican erroneously thinking they are defending
- I was sent an article regarding "Iran threats against
US" and frankly folks, they are non-existent just as they were non-existent
regarding Iraq. These idiots figure if they got by with it once they
can get by with it twice.
- DEBKAfile = Jewish disinformation and propaganda service.
- That explains it all. I thought it was rather extreme.
- Just wanted to advise you, if you were thrown by that
as I was. Sorry. Shows one must be cautious.
- Add in the bogus dirty bomb suspect story and the Pope's
comments to rile up the Muslims, there is definitely a pattern.
- VOTE ALL OF THE WARMONGERING LIARS OUT!
- The Pop Quiz is below in the text of this email.
It is simply do you know how the US ranks in this world in various categories?
Most do not so as you read pay close attention to the ranking per category.
They are eye-opening as to whether we are #1 or #47, or #150.
- We have at least one candidate for Congress out of Vermont
that seems to be focused on the right target, in my opinion. May
Shock and Awe be with him!
- VT Cong Candidate Calls For Arrest of Bush and Cheney
by U.S. Military
- West pawlet, VT 9/20/06
- (802) 645-9727
- Former Army Lieutenant and a candidate for Congress
in VT, Dennis Morrisseau of W. Pawlet, today called for the arrest of President
Bush and Vice President Cheney by the American military "if necessary"
to prevent an unauthorized attack upon the nation of Iran.
- "American forces are apparently already active
inside Iran, and Naval forces have received orders to deploy to that country,"
Morrisseau said. "The President has NO AUTHORITY to attack the nation
of Iran whatsoever, in the absence of a full, formal Declaration of War
on Iran by the sitting Congress," Morrisseau said. He said any order
for an attack upon Iran or to deploy naval forces to its coastal waters
is illegal, and called upon officers of the American military to "First,
refuse to obey such an order. If the president persists and insists on
ordering our forces into combat in or over Iran without a formal Declaration
of War, then I call upon you, General Pace, as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs,
and upon such other military officers as clearly see their duty in these
circumstances to detain both the President and Vice President, until such
time as the Congress shall act."
- Morrisseau, a Congressional candidate who was court-martialed
for opposition to the Vietnam War in 1968, said he has written to General
Pace to ask for the intervention of the military. "In spite of my
opposition to the Vietnam War and the court-martial which we ultimately
defeated, I was a good soldier who had the respect of my superior officers
throughout the ordeal. And they had mine!" Morrisseau said. "There
are many many, very, very decent people in the active duty military. I
know this," he said "---people who love their country and democracy
too, and hate war."
- Morrisseau wrote that "Iran is no present threat
to us or anyone. Their right to enrich uranium under treaties signed by
us for the production of nuclear power is clear: and that is all they have
so far done. An attack upon that nation now by us, acting alone will constitute
an illegal war of aggression under international law. It is illegal under
our law as well. I urge you to so advise the President," Morrisseau
wrote to Pace, "and urge that he take no such actions. In particular,
he must not act in the absence of a full, formal, responsible War Declaration
by Congress. That is the Constitutional requirement." If he and Cheney
persist, Morrisseau wrote, "than the country must rely upon you, Sir,
and our armed forces generally, to resist all illegal orders by Bush or
Cheney, and take the gentlemen into custody if necessary.

- One of the Catholics on the list sent the following after
the last email regarding why the Pope might have stirred up the Muslims
in this election year. He had a different theory that I had never
- Hello Karl,
- I believe that voting with ballots is a waste of time. Diebold
is the solid curtain.
- As for Benedict Ratzinger he is not a real Pope nor is
he even a real bishop. See http://www.traditio.com for more info
on that. Benedict Ratzinger is one of the engineers of Vatican II.
He is a Modernist Novus Ordoite and anti-Catholic. But his speech
was in no way trying to provoke Mohammedans. Us real Catholics know
Benedict Ratzinger real well, and we know that his agenda with the Mohammedans
is ecumenism and the selling out of Catholicism. All those people
who say Benedict Ratzinger is a traditional Catholic or a fervent Catholic
or defender of Catholic orthodoxy only prove they don't know what they
are talking about. The last truly Catholic Pope was Pius XII.
- That is sort of scary to an Ecumenical Christian like
me if one has to go back to 1958 to find what many Catholics consider to
be the Last True Catholic Pope. Oooops! I did some research
on that matter and many do in fact consider Pope Pius XII to be the last
true Pope. That would explain a lot.
- I have wondered for years why some of the more liberal,
more decadent members of the House and Senate, and our government that
support all sorts of idiotic "ists" and "isms" are
professed Catholics yet do not seem to remotely resemble other Catholics
I know that are good solid people and do not believe that crap. Who
did that? According to the source the Illuminati wanted the Jesuits
in control and the Catholic Church under the control of the World Elite
too. That actually "smells" right to me.
- Another Catholic from Miami sent this:
- As soon as the news broke about Ratzinger's comment about
the Muslims, my b.s. meter went off. Ratzinger IS no dummy; he's
been running the Roman Church for decades. Every word he uses is carefully
chosen and sculpted to convey precise meanings. I remember back in
1975, as a chaplain at St. Louis University, I wrote a letter to the editor
of the NCR, regarding something or other repressive Ratzinger has done
while Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. Even back
then - 30 years ago - this man was running a very high-powered game.
- It was obvious to me - and apparently - many other opened-eyed
ones, that this was a pro-Bush, ruffle-the-(Catholic)-masses-feathers ploy
in an election year. The fundamentalist or co-conspiratorial Muslim
world was sure to respond with a knee-jerk reaction.
- It's appalling what the neo-cons and Bushies will do
to keep America captive. As far as Ratzinger is concerned, did you
see the look in his eyes when he looked out over St. Peter's Square just
after he was elected? My blood ran cold; there is something other
than human looking out from those eyes.
- I saw that too, looked like Darth Vader's boss in Star
Wars, the Hooded Evil One hell bent on being the Master of the Universe.
The dark side of the Force! I got a chill down my spine too and I
am not even Catholic. I do not watch the lips move, I watch their
- The Russians and Chinese communists used to indoctrinate
children to make them better communists and more compliant to the will
of the Communist State. That is a well known fact and they called
it the Communist Youth movement.
- The Fascists in Germany used to indoctrinate children
to make them better fascists and more compliant to the will of the Fascist
State. That is a well known fact and they called them the Hitler
Youth. They had their own little uniforms, patches, knives and went
through all sorts of brainwashing about how superior they were to all other
races and nationalities. Aryans [blue eyes, blonde hair] they called
themselves when not using the moniker of Hitler Youth. I have always
had a problem with US interests like the Bush Family financing this group
of fascists, with most of my family remaining in Germany to live through
that Hell. When they became presidents and showed their fascist colors,
I really have a problem with them crapping on my homeland.
- What is scary are children being indoctrinated in the
United States to be more compliant to the will of the Bush form of Fascist
Christian State and that somehow it is the US destiny to rule the world
and conquer the world for the Second Coming of Jesus. For some reason
we have to teach children to be Christian Warriors willing to kill anyone
who gets in their way or disagrees with US policy and objectives.
I guess we can call them BOUTH, think about it.
- Frankly, if and when God comes He will not need the help
of moron Christians to affect His Will upon this world. That is the
theology I believe in regarding whether God needs my help to take care
of matters down here and sort out the idiots and the mess they have made
of things. God does not need our help; we need His in a big way.
- Christians that believe that sort of stuff, that God
needs their help, are like that ant my grandfather told me about walking
up the leg of the elephant with rape on its mind. At dinner Monday
night my Russian lady and I had English lessons for her on some new words:
ludicrous, asinine, absurd, preposterous, ridiculous, outrageous, etc.
Once she saw those words in Russian she knew exactly what they meant in
English and agreed with what you are about to read and just saw if you
watched that video. She remembers all too well the attempts to brainwash
her into being a compliant Communist Youth babe as she was growing up in
- Such pretense Christians completely miss the message
of what Free Will is all about. That being each and every human being
has that right of Free Will and each and every human's relationship with
God is their business and their's alone, not that of such nosy busybody
Christians. Those same types of people also miss the message and
the warning in "judgment is mine sayeth the Lord."
- Many Christians do not understand what the word ecumenical
means. I get asked what it means all the time by Christians and non-Christians
and atheist. It does not mean stick one's nose where it does not
belong and try to force a person to do something or believe what they do
not believe. What is does mean is through example (by their own conduct)
spread the truth and value of the teachings of Jesus Christ through exemplary
conduct and good example.
- I broke up with two Georgia Peach Pits because of their
version of Christianity, carnality and being available sluts to any man
they had the hots for, and being elitist snobs like nothing I have ever
met before in my life. They were brainwashed and were brainwashing
their children and anyone who would listen to them. Both of them
had serious drinking problems [which is why they were divorced and a major
part of why be broke up] and that would flare up bad whenever they did
not get their way. They were all for this Bush GWOT, just as long
as their elitist children did not have to go dirty their hands. Heaven
forbid that their babies would come home in a box or missing some pieces.
That was a messy job for those other inferior Americans according
to them. These are the same two babes with 2 brain cells that think
George Bush is hot, NOT!
- When I see people acting that way, I clearly see that
they do not have a damned clue what the message really is within the New
Testament. Note the part in the video that these children do not
find in their homes what they think they are looking for, poor misdirected
babies, so someone creates a little camp for creating little Christian
Fascists. Their goal at this camp is to brainwash children and they
should be shut down for teaching such crap. It is not a Christian
- The last thing that Jesus Christ stood for was intolerance
or bending the scriptures so that graft, corruption, greed and killing
and religious based arrogance are okay. We have Christian morons
teaching intolerance and fascism to many and acting if they do not have
a plank in their own eye. Frankly, as a solid Christian I think the
plank is up their arse like a popsicle stick.
- I have had running battles with some of the Christian
Dominionist on their self-defined theology of US destiny of conquering
the world with military force for Jesus Christ. Talk about getting
the message backwards! I have even written about it and coined new
words to fit: http://rense.com/general60/domn.htm
- You should see the befuddled looks on their faces when
I ask them two questions:
- Where is the real estate takeover section of the Bible
that spells out the use of military force and killing by Christians to
conquer the world that way? I must have missed that juicy Tom Clancy
- Once you have conquered the world for Jesus through bloodshed,
do you intend to keep it for your bogus church or quitclaim the Earth back
to God? You are going to wash off the blood first, right?
- They cannot show me that part of the Bible for it does
not exist. It is a twisted theology and twisted misinterpretation
of God's Word to suit their narrow minded hatreds, prejudices and bigotries
and stems from an Americanized Idiotic Christian view of the world that
shows their rampant stupidity. Many of these people have never been
outside of the United States and act as if they are experts on things they
know absolutely nothing about. Worse, it is a self-anointed religious
arrogance that might anger Jesus enough to backhand them across the room
for being worse than the money changers. This is a whole new level
of stuck on stupid and not knowing where to draw the line or when to quit.
Being nosy, belligerent, war-like and intrusive are not virtues of how
to spread Christianity.
- Spreading Christianity by the sword during the Crusades
worked no better then than it does now in trying to spread it with bullets,
smart bombs, cruise missiles and Shock and Awe. It especially does
not work when we put the howitzers and tanks in their faces and steal their
assets and futures at gunpoint. Where it really does not work is
when it is all wrapped up in lies and agendas coming out of Washington,
- In a way it is like leadership, lead, follow or get the
Hell out of the way. It is also a lot like Dwight Eisenhower said
about how he learned to be a leader:
- "My grandfather taught me at an early age that it
is much easier to pull a chain than it is to push a chain."
- That analogy in a nutshell is what many Christians in
the US are missing. They think they can pontificate, twist the Scriptures
and push the chain. Lead by example, not this idiotic belligerence,
hate and this "killing is great mentality" and hiding the greed
behind a bogus war on terror. We are all on the same boat and it
is sinking. They can pray all they want and keep the blinders on
to reality, the ship is still sinking.
- Bad example equals Pat Robertson calling for the assassination
of Hugo Chavez, president of Venezuela. As weak as the dollar is
due to our policies, any leader with half a brain would be buying or selling
oil in euros.
- Bad example equals Ralph Reed and his sleaze with Jack
Abramoff. That is a perfect example of power corrupting the weak
and the greedy.
- Bad example equals Jerry Falwell urging crowds on that
look like they are zombies needing to be buried and urging them on to back
Bush and the greed, lies, killing and misdirected US policies backed by
misdirected Christians. Seriously folks, tune in and watch their
eyes and you will see that many of them are not at home. It is almost
Quaalude City. They are lost little Sheeple following the wrong shepherds.
- I was asked about two months ago, ""what does
"there are no atheist in foxholes" mean?"" My
answer was simple "it means when the shooting starts, whether
you are a Christian or an atheist they all pray to God for salvation and
deliverance from that particular Hell. Problem is, many will still
die because the person with their finger on the trigger of the machine
gun is not praying, they are aiming and shooting to kill."
- You know, George Bush and his traitorous partners on
Capitol Hill might cut a deal to amend the War Crimes Act to try to avoid
criminal prosecution for their criminal actions, but there is not a damned
thing they can do to amend the Ten Commandments. For those Christians
that receive this directly from me or indirectly, sins of omission are
not excusable either especially when you are old enough to know better
or were instructed by God to use discernment and not weakness or follow
evil. If they are true Christians they will know exactly what I mean
by that. These other faux Christians will not have a clue.
- VOTE ALL OF THE FAUX CHRISTIAN THUGS OUT!
- I have been taking a long hard look at many European
nations due to my business and several things stick out in ways that are
a real eye opener.
- The following was sent by one of the email list members
in Denmark (an American) and I have added comments between the categories.
There are many trend lines in America that are headed in the wrong direction
and I think the following study hits on the repercussions of what we are
all going through. This bodes ill for all of us and it is due to
a combination of factors that are all fixable, but DC will not lift a finger
since it is all a result of longer term policy objectives of our government
and the Wealthy Elite that pull those strings.
- Everything in this list in italics and in bold black
and blue italics was what was sent to me. My comments are in the
same font I normally use.
- NationMaster.com is a massive central data source and
a handy way to graphically compare nations. NationMaster is a vast compilation
of data from such sources as the CIA World Factbook, United Nations, World
Health Organization, World Bank, World Resources Institute, UNESCO, UNICEF
- The NationMaster.com facts may change your perception:
- United States of America has the world's fourth largest
population and is:
- I am not sure where they got the statistics for this
because the US is third in total population behind China and India.
http://www.internetworldstats.com/stats8.htm Maybe the figure predated
the breakup of the USSR at which time the US was fourth in total population.
- I was not concerned for many years when the US led the
world in energy consumption but also led in manufacturing output and exports,
but that has slipped while our consumption has gone up and our cost of
living. We are evolving into a consumer based economy that is killing
the consumers and exporting less, while the rich get richer and the rest
of us are stuck or getting poorer. Quality of life has definitely
taken a nose dive across much of America.
- It is driven by two things corporate greed and
a government that aids and abets them for major campaign donations because
Americans do not finance the Really Big Show in DC. That is why Third
Party candidates cannot get any traction, major corporations will not support
them and Americans do not either. It is like being sent to the front
lines with a gun and no bullets to be a Third Party candidate in America.
- The RNC and DNC are broken and corrupt beyond repair,
yet Americans will not join hands and put forth a solid Third Party effort
to break up the monopoly. Until they do, this is all an exercise
in mental masturbation as to what is wrong with America and what it will
take to fix the problems. They control the debate and the policies
because Americans by and large sit back and watch, do not act.
- If you do not like what you see in Washington, DC, you
might want to consider that the surgery you want (and need to survive)
is going to cost you something personally. It does cost those that
are plowing your life under. They spend billions every year screwing
the rest of us over. Let me see, rough math, if 250 million Americans
paid at least $10 dollars to fix this damned mess we are in, that would
amount to $2.5 billion or about 5 times what RNC or DNC spends on their
charade every 4 years.
- That would be a race for the White House worth watching.
- #1 for military expenditures - More than five times as
much as #2 - China
- Former President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned in his final
speech that the military industrial complex was a threat to this
nation. Additionally, former five star General Douglas MacArthur
warned America what we were becoming.
- Many years ago the military made a conscious decision
to try and achieve 500% increase in firepower while reducing armed service
members by 80%. I know the man that was charged with that task.
That was in 1989-1990 and still has not been proven to be a formula that
works but it sure has increased defense R&D and expenditures.
Oddly enough, the same consultants working on that were our major defense
contractors in a very self-serving way.
- It seems General MacArthur was right an incessant
propaganda of fear and an incessant plundering of the US taxpayer for a
safety that does not exist. Americans need to listen to a 5-star
general who has been there because he knew what he was talking about.
General Smedley Darlington Butler did too, War is a Racket. When
a man serves and wins two Congressional Medals of Honor and then speaks
the truth, Americans need to listen.
- This most recent Senate Defense Appropriations Bill,
at a whopping $470 billion dollars, is really good for the defense contractors.
It is not good for America in general. Bush has blown well over $1.5
trillion on defense that was not even needed but it sure did pump up the
bottom lines of Big Defense and Big Oil and others. We can only dig
that hole so deep and there will come a time we cannot get out of it.
- In the modern world, any nation that consumes so much
for internal consumption purposes and benefits only a few is not going
to last long. It is like a carnivore eating itself for dinner.
That is what happened to Rome when they woke up one day and did not have
any friends in sight any where.
- #1 for nuclear, biological and chemical weapons of mass
destruction per capita
- The U.S. continues to violate treaties banning the development
of such weapons under the pretense of fighting terrorism. Do not
be shocked or surprised when these same biological and chemical weapons
are used against Americans and were provided by our own government as part
of this huge, bogus Global War on Terror. They could have truthfully
named it the Global War of Bad Manners and we are the transgressors.
While in Europe, by far the rudest damned people I have seen in seven nations
are those from the US and UK. We have a long way to go to learn good
- Did any of you notice that Bush changed his tune on Iran
when he addressed the UN general assembly? He is not opposed to Iran
developing nuclear power since they are part of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation
Treaty. So, what exactly Mr. Bush, has all of the false rhetoric
been about? Maybe our president needs to apologize to Iran for his
father, Cheney, Rumsfeld, et al, selling Saddam Hussein chemical and biological
weapons to be used against Iranians in the Iraq-Iran War. That might
be a start and personally I think it is long overdue.
- Otherwise, this New Middle East vision that the Neocons
and Zionist came up with is not sellable, it is not workable, and anyone
pursuing it like Bush is out of their damned mind.
- VOTE OUT ALL OF THE IDIOTS, ZIONISTS AND NEOCONS!
- #1 for the number of rapes
- I have noticed in many European cities that beautiful
women walk the streets at night alone or in pairs. Rape in Europe
is almost unheard of and it shows in the conduct of people that know from
experience that they can walk the streets of their cities in most places
free from harm, molestation or rape. People are not safe in their
own homes or place of work in America from being raped. When Rule
of Law means nothing it all breaks down and the predators rule.
- I read a book one time about Genghis Khan, a Mongolian
that built the largest contiguous empire in history. It was said
that during the height of his reign that a virgin on a thoroughbred horse
with a sack of gold could ride from one end of his empire to the other
with little fear of being raped or robbed. The reason was simple
Genghis Khan used a very simplistic, absolutely certain and swift
form of justice. Yes, it was harsh and it was as certain as death.
There is a huge difference in inadvertently screwing up and acting out
with malice and our legal system seems to no longer recognize the difference
between the two.
- I did not see it on this list but I also think the United
States is #1 in the sexual and carnal abuse of children and physical abuse
of children. If we are not #1 we are definitely in the Top 5 or Top
10. I never see such in the news here in Europe, but in Arkansas
and Georgia there was something on those subjects almost every week in
- #1 for teenage pregnancies
- I can think of no better reason for solidifying moral
standards as part of upbringing including teaching morals in the home and
at school. The legal age of consent in most European nations is 14
years of age for a female and they have far less in the way of teenage
pregnancies. If a 14 year old female said OK to having sex with a
40 year old man it is not against the law in most parts of Europe.
- I have noticed that most females in Europe in their 20s
and early 30s are single and without children and live alone. It
seems many American teenagers think having a baby is like playing Barbie
and that is not the case. It also poses the question if they are
doing such a great job teaching about the use of condoms and safe sex in
America's schools, why is it the students are not learning the lesson except
the hard way? That is a 1 + 1 = 3 and they just do not seem to get
it. One has to be pretty dumbed down as a nation to not "get
it" that sex and having babies are connected.
- Even though we are supposedly on a moral high ground
when compared to secular Europe they have fewer teenage pregnancies per
capita and their marriages start later and last longer. Maybe we
do not truly grasp moral or even common sense in America. I know
they do not teach civics any more; maybe they have ceased teaching biology
too. I am also well aware that America listens to too many false
- #1 for total number of divorces
- Many have seen the Mormon commercials about being pro-family,
pro-children, etc, but that religion leads America for all religions in
divorce. I first came across that statistic many years ago.
With two out of every three US marriages ending in divorce, it makes one
wonder what price we are paying to have a high-stress, go-go society.
I have noticed that Europeans seem to marry much later and seem to do a
better job of staying married even having to do without many of the luxuries
we Americans take for granted.
- For example, in the building where I have a flat in Europe
I have the only remodeled apartment that has a dishwasher. I have
a washing machine but clothes dryers are unheard of except in larger homes
and much higher price brackets. It has taken some getting used to
that when I wash clothes I cannot wear them for many hours as they dry
on a special rack for that purpose. This is the first time in my
life I have had that piece of home furnishings. I have not bought
a car yet because I do not need one yet. I am very close to bus,
metro, trams and there are always the taxis if it is raining or I can walk
miles if the weather is nice. I have lost 7 pounds in two months
due to walking and still eating like a horse. Most of the tenants
in my building have jobs but do not own a car nor do they have air conditioners
- I have seen plenty of evidence in Europe of people who
have less, expect less and are happier.
- #1 for CO2 emissions
- One thing Europe does need is emission standards and
annual inspections on the cars. Even though there are fewer cars
and smaller, the level of emissions seems to be higher in many parts of
Europe than even NYC or LA or Dallas. It is a matter of sheer numbers
for Americans have far more cars than Europe per capita and otherwise.
Since our government and Big Oil are not interested in fuel economy or
hydrogen fuel or alternative fuels, we are stuck in the US with what the
overall policy is and that is consumption until there is nothing left to
- They love the prospects of supply versus demand tilting
in their favor so they can charge more and pump up the cash they rake in
over at Big Oil. Now George Soros is out pimping $262 a barrel oil,
probably to line his own pockets through his predatory hedge funds.
I wonder what the DNC thinks about that since it would put our economy
flat on its back.
- CHECK INTO IT AND VOTE OUT ANYONE WHO TAKES MONEY FROM
- #1 for CO2 emissions from fossil fuels 2000 (per capita)
- Most electricity in the areas I have been is generated
by nuclear power and is cheap compared to America. They pay higher
for gasoline, but far less for electricity and natural gas. Gazprom
out of Russia is supplying Europe at much cheaper prices than natural gas
is in the United States in most areas. There are not many oil fired
or natural gas fired electrical generators in Europe. Nuclear carries
the load here for the most part. Most of the Central Europe oil companies
get their petroleum from Russia, not any firm tied to the Bush energy policy.
- #1 for electricity consumption
- Imagine this, and it is standard in most European hotels.
When you enter a room, you have to insert your plastic key into a slot
for the lights to even work. It completes the circuit so the lights
will work. When you leave, you have to take that key and that means
you cannot leave the lights on when you are not in the hotel room.
That should be standard in all US homes, hotels and offices. Has
nothing to do with a National ID card, is more of a Quit Being so Damned
Wasteful card. I remember all too well having a 5,200 square foot
house, three air conditioners, three teenagers and their appendages (friends)
and gasping at $600 to $800 electric bills for many months. My recent
electric bill for my flat in Europe was about $35 and it is a very large
flat. Since I work out of it for now, multiple electrical devices
are on 18 hours a day.
- #1 for nuclear energy consumption
- The United States will not lead in this category much
longer as the People's Republic of China is ramping up fast to meet its
energy needs with nuclear power. The PRC does not seem to have a
DOE that lets energy companies and oil companies see how much they can
fleece from consumers. Our dear president has even provided them
$5 billion in Export Import Bank financing so they will use Bechtel
and Westinghouse. Evidently they have decided not to play along with
Bush & Company regarding oil and gas and the refusal of our government
to put any kind of energy policy into place that makes sense. The
United States has one energy policy and that is consumption and on the
other side of that coin doing everything possible to not support alternative
energy or even energy conservation.
