Making the economy sustainable with little government intervention

When interest on money is charged, money in the future is worth less than money now. This has a major impact on investment choices. Interest promotes investments that are unsustainable and wasteful. If no interest was charged, sustainable investments would be more attractive. For example: you want to build a house and you have the choice between a house of €100,000 with a yearly energy cost of €5,000 or a house of ...more »

Making Data More Accessible

Build a fiber optic cable from Eureka, California to The Dalles, Oregon.

Currently there is one fiber optic cable connecting Eureka to the Internet. When that is accidentally cut, business stops. No credit or debit card sales, no automatic inventory re-ordering. The cable fails about once a year. If we connected to the data centers in The Dalles we could continue to be in business. The telecom companies have already designed the system but are waiting for a "big player" to sign on to finance ...more »

American citizenship or being a citizen of Heaven

If you had a choice between being an American citizen or being a citizen of Heaven, which would you choose? For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; Philippians 3:20 I am choosing being a citizen of Heaven since Obama and his team is taking America straight to world citizenship, and then straight to hell. Citizen of Heaven = Thumbs up Citizen of America ...more »

The Tree of Obama

"You will know a tree by it's fruit." Matthew 7:16 The Obama Tree is a black Oak. The leaves protect the tree from the light of truth. The bark is hard and callus to prevent transparency. The fruit is the ACORN, to reproduce itself again and again. The roots of deception go deep into the American soil. By David Craig Mastrianni © 2009 Toalterorabolish.com Please help me report any copying of the ...more »

Tax inert wealth

We know that trickle-down economics doesn't work. The truth is that the more money you put in the hands of the middle & lower classes, the more money you are circulating through your economy. People that are salaried at the mean & below spend the majority of the money they make, which in turn improves the economy, and essentially trickles up into the coffers of corporations and eventually, those with the largest investment ...more »

Get the IRS and politicians out of citizens lives (again)

In 1776 we fought to stop undue taxation burdens. Now in 2009 the founding fathers would not believe the nightmare inflicted on citizens every year come April. Worse, no one, not even the IRS and politicians, really know who is paying what tax anymore, with over 100,000 books of tax regulations. This is making the American economy uncompetitive compared internationally with billions being spent annually on bureaucracy ...more »

Regulate or Outlaw Derivates

Derivatives are not assets. Derivatives are pieces of paper on which is placed some ink that is adjusted into particular patterns. The adjusted ink is arranged so as to refer to some other thing, the supposed underlying asset, or worse, another derivative. All a derivative can do is refer to that other thing. It is not that other thing and cannot be traded for that other thing. Therefore, derivaties are not fungible, ...more »

Rulemaking

Single-Payer Health Care should be "on the table"

In the spirit of transparency and accountability, the national health care debate must include an open and honest analysis of Single-Payer Health Care. We need a thorough analysis of Single-Payer and how it would affect the quality and costs of our health care system, compared to other proposals being discussed. In 2003, Barack Obama stated: "I happen to be a proponent of a Single-Payer universal health care plan. We ...more »
