If you think 600% price increases in a barrel of oil is a good way to make a fortune, you should check out what a high-level CIA insider SSueAnn Arrigo found out about defense contracting...

SueAnn Arrigo offers a glimpse and at great personal risk. In August 2001, DCI George Tenet told her to assemble "a moving van full of Pentagon documents showing Defense Contractor kickbacks to Pentagon officials." She did as instructed but not to expose corruption as she learned - to conceal it and in her judgment so CIA could divert defense business to Halliburton and "Carlyle-related contractors." She stated: "The mood at the CIA and Pentagon was 'war is coming' because the Bush Family stands to make billions from it -- so get ready."

The Clintons made $120 million yakking to people. So hot air from top Political Creatures is the BIGGEST money maker of them all.

In DE I see a few more bicycles, including older folks. And I see more and more gray-hairs dusting off their high-school motorcycles. Every time I go to Philly I see more bikes, and the growth in cyclists in San Francisco is exponential. These are mostly youngsters, but not exclusively. It's a promising sign.


Just for the data base: gas here today is $1.478/litre = $5.62/gal. Much as I watch for it, no sign of change in driving volumes tho.


Looks like the dam-up of alternative energy technology is being circumvented by a Japanese company that is gearing up to produce a water powered automobile. See
Lets hope they are more successful than Stanley Meyer who did the same and met with foul play. See
Many individuals are replicating the Meyer device using his expired patent.
Or if you are mechanically inclined, you can try the Water 4 Gas route (Search: Water 4 Gas) and significantly increase the gas mileage on your present vehicle.
Big Oil may cook its golden goose by pushing people to far.


Here is the rest of that cut off URL



I think the 'cars run by water' would be SO COOL and perhaps the US should have spent the 5 trillion on new debt in the last 7 years on researching it.

But because they have not, it is more likely that the oil speculators have loaded up on shorts and then dump news this over the weekend that Saudi Arabia is going to pump an extra half million barrels a day and add in a few fantasy YouTube videos to put the insiders' shorts into the money on Monday.

Oil is just a currency like the USD. When they increase the supply of USD, it goes down, and Oil currency goes up.

When the supply of Oil currency goes up, the value goes down and the USD currency goes up.

We are not on the GOLD standard, we are on the OIL standard. Or more accurately oil and heroin, but I digress.

Saudi oil chief to address reports of oil increase

14 hours ago

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — Saudi Arabia's oil minister on Sunday will address reports that the world's largest oil-producing country is set to raise production by about 500,000 barrels per day, his adviser said.

The increase would bring Saudi Arabia's oil production to 10 million barrels a day, the country's highest ever, according to reports by The New York Times and the Middle East Economic Survey, an industry publication.

Elaine: You say, "we want endless food and we don't eat termites". Early last century sawmill workers in pioneer areas of Ontario from time-to-time came across termite nests in partially dead trees, whereupon they would scoop up the larvae in both hands and gorge on them. Seemingly, the termites were "delicious, nutritious and taste good, too".

Elaine Meinel Supkis

All of our ancient ancestors loved and relished termites. Starting with the near annihilation of all living things 68 million years ago, the survivors found termites inside the dead trees that were killed by the catastrophe. Eating these kept our ancestors alive.

Yes, insects can be tasty. All primates love insects. This is why we have eyes that are bifocal. To snag bugs.
