Obama great for an Economy

Well, good news for Americans, The President told everyone during the campaign that his presidency would be just the ticket for the U.S. Economy. And he has done just that, well at least for a particular segment of the economy.
 
 salesman-of-the-year
 
However, as I have predicted, the next shoe is about to drop. Today the Dow dropped 284 points, and we are hearing the gentle suggestions of future problems from the likes of Bank of American and AIG. 
 
Lets look at Bank of America, Most of you will remember, the fuss that I and many made over the fact that Bank of America was giving credit cards, bank accounts and cheap sub prime loans two years ago to illegal aliens,… Remember that!! , Now today, Ken Lewis the CEO for BoA says that well they might want to pay back the TARP money sometime.  Heres the facts, their stock dropped this morning 24% and their balance sheet shows that loan defaults, credit card defaults,etc are climbing, escalating, at record rates, home foreclosures and going thru the roof.  And their balance sheet shows that they really need a 36 Billion dollar influx just to get to even. That means they need another 36 Billion to become solvent.
Now, what happened, First, I repeat, they gave illegals bank accounts, credit cards and home loans to illegal aliens, then they buy Country Wide Mortgage and they made the sub prime loan to illegals and OTMS famous, and that deal is what convinced Fannie Mae that they had better get with it or lose billions of business to Country Wide.   DUH!
So what is this Obama, Treasury suggesting that they do ?  They want to swap fiat money, for billions of common or preferred stock in Bank of America,… In other words, they are going to subsidize , this crazy bank policy of Bank of America with our tax dollars.  One thing we can all do is close our accounts at BoA and open at small local banks or local non federal credit unions.  Get their attention , legally.
 
I do not want to own any part of Bank of America, Country Wide,Merrill Lynch period. And I do not want my tax dollars propping up a Bank that has been involved in the treason of America.
 
As for AIG.  I would not put another dime into that company. Fact is the sooner they fail the better.  The problem is they did exactly what barney frank and dodd wanted them to do . So until we address the frank and dodd issue, AIG will be dangling out there in a black hole of debt.  
 
This morning Obama told his agency heads to cut 100 million from their budgets with in the next ninety days. Thats like telling your kid, he just lost 25cents of his allowance. WHOOPTIDO!!!!!  Im telling you folks the longer he stays in office the sooner , we get our head out of our backsides and put some people in there that can balance a check book.  Its obvious that noone in Washington DC ever took bookeeping or accounting in High School.  He should tell them to cut a trillion dollars from the Federal Budget, Heres a couple of places that I have suggested cuts.  First close all federal buildings in all 50 states, All Federal Judges, Circuit Courts, and US Attorneys should be removed and sent to Washington, DC.  Second, Shut down every program that has any federal involvement in any of the states.  All states should stop sending all tax revenues generated from fuel sales to Washington, that money should remain in the respective states, including any and all federal excise taxes from whatever.
 
All border and law enforcement should be handled by the states.
 
Back to the Economy: Commercial Real Estate is starting its downward spiral.  Coupled with the credit card defaults all over the country.  Unemployment, now at 6 million filers, and another 9 million employment challenged, adding another 10 million filers over the next 18 months.  Much of what is wrong with our government will get fixed over the next 24 months, However the downturn will have detrimental affects on the legitimate legal citizens of the country. So get ready. The Tea Parties were a great start.  But we have a long way to go.

Economic Plan Sent to Obama Team in Dec 2008

Filed under: My Posts — thearizonasentinel @ 7:51 pm

 

 

President Elect Obama:          Sent to the Transition Team December 2008

First, below my plan is a doc that everyone needs to be familiar with regarding the negative side of the electric car. In the ninties , we worked on converting a 86 mustang to an electric car and ran into the problems described below. Electric certainly has a future for commuting vehicles, however, forty-thousand dollars for that car is unrealistic.

Now, I have submitted the following to the Arizona legislature for consideration and am in the process of working on a meeting with the Apache tribe here in AZ.
The plan is this, First, in America, we have millions of acres of land that is in what is called the CRP or the Federally subsidized Crop Reduction Program, which takes land out of production and the farmer is paid to keep the land basically idle. Also we have tens of thousands of federally managed lands that have been burnt, due to wildfires, cause by mismanagement of the forest service. These acres need to be planted in Switch Grass, which can be converted into bio diesel fuel, ethanol and a variety of by products including residue that can be used to produce electrical energy. Switch grass produces 20 times the energy as that of corn. We all ready have the technology, we could be producing this fuel during the next growing season, If they will just type Switch Grass into there browser, they can look at several articles regarding switch grass studies and test plots, one in Alabama is especially interesting.
States have the natural resources with in them to generate thousands of jobs, generating renewable energies,… An example of what can be done is the programs and projects that the Commissioner of Natural Resources in the state of Washington has implemented in his State. I refer you to Commissioner Doug Sutherland.
As I mentioned I am working on a meeting with the Apache tribe. Although I have submitted it to the legislature in AZ, Working with the tribe will be faster, because we wont have to deal with, political, beuarcratic,and agency interference’s. I would also suggest that your team interview Richard Branson,. What Richard understands is that at some point we will need renewable fuels that in fact will burn in combustion and turbine engines.

If your team is interested, I will keep them up to date on our progress at the state level and with the Tribes here in Arizona.

Prius Outdoes Hummer in Environmental Damage

By Staff writer; Cris Demorro

The Toyota Prius has become the flagship car for those in our society so environmentally conscious that they are willing to spend a premium to show the world how much they care. Unfortunately for them, their ultimate ‘green car’ is the source of some of the worst pollution in North America; it takes more combined energy per Prius to produce than a Hummer.
Before we delve into the seedy underworld of hybrids, you must first understand how a hybrid works. For this, we will use the most popular hybrid on the market, the Toyota Prius.
The Prius is powered by not one, but two engines: a standard 76 horsepower, 1.5-liter gas engine found in most cars today and a battery- powered engine that deals out 67 horsepower and a whooping 295ft/lbs of torque, below 2000 revolutions per minute.
Essentially, the Toyota Synergy Drive system, as it is so called, propels the car from a dead stop to up to 30mph.
This is where the largest percent of gas is consumed. As any physics major can tell you, it takes more energy to get an object moving than to keep it moving. The battery is recharged through the braking system, as well as when the gasoline engine takes over anywhere north of 30mph. It seems like a great energy efficient and environmentally sound car, right?
You would be right if you went by the old government EPA estimates, which netted the Prius an incredible 60 miles per gallon in the city and 51 miles per gallon on the highway.
Unfortunately for Toyota, the government realized how unrealistic their EPA tests were, which consisted of highway speeds limited to 55mph and acceleration of only 3.3 mph per second.
The new tests which affect all 2008 models give a much more realistic rating with highway speeds of 80mph and acceleration of 8mph per second. This has dropped the Prius’s EPA down by 25 percent to an average of 45mpg. This now puts the Toyota within spitting distance of cars like the Chevy Aveo, which costs less then half what the Prius costs.
However, if that was the only issue with the Prius, I wouldn’t be writing this article. It gets much worse.
Building a Toyota Prius causes more environmental damage than a Hummer that is on the road for three times longer than a Prius. As already noted, the Prius is partly driven by a battery which contains nickel. The nickel is mined and smelted at a plant in Sudbury, Ontario.
This plant has caused so much environmental damage to the surrounding environment that NASA has used the ‘dead zone’ around the plant to test moon rovers. The area around the plant is devoid of any life for miles.
The plant is the source of all the nickel found in a Prius’ battery and Toyota purchases 1,000 tons annually. Dubbed the Superstack, the plague-factory has spread sulfur dioxide across northern Ontario, becoming every environmentalist’s nightmare.
“The acid rain around Sudbury was so bad it destroyed all the plants and the soil slid down off the hillside,” said Canadian Greenpeace energy-coordinator David Martin during an interview with Mail, a British-based newspaper.
All of this would be bad enough in and of itself; however, the journey to make a hybrid doesn’t end there. The nickel produced by this disastrous plant is shipped via massive container ship to the largest nickel refinery in Europe.
From there, the nickel hops over to China to produce ‘nickel foam.’ From there, it goes to Japan. Finally, the completed batteries are shipped to the United States, finalizing the around-the-world trip required to produce a single Prius battery. Are these not sounding less and less like environmentally sound cars and more like a farce?
Wait, I haven’t even got to the best part yet.
When you pool together all the combined energy it takes to drive and build a Toyota Prius, the flagship car of energy fanatics, it takes almost 50 percent more energy than a Hummer – the Prius’s arch nemesis.
Through a study by CNW Marketing called “Dust to Dust,” the total combined energy is taken from all the electrical, fuel, transportation, materials (metal, plastic, etc) and hundreds of other factors over the expected lifetime of a vehicle.

The Prius costs an average of $3.25 per mile driven over a lifetime of 100,000 miles – the expected lifespan of the Hybrid.
The Hummer, on the other hand, costs a more fiscal $1.95 per mile to put on the road over an expected lifetime of 300,000 miles. That means the Hummer will last three times longer than a Prius and use less combined energy doing it.
So, if you are really an environmentalist – ditch the Prius. Instead, buy one of the most economical cars available – a Toyota Scion xB. The Scion only costs a paltry $0.48 per mile to put on the road. If you are still obsessed over gas mileage – buy a Chevy Aveo and fix that lead foot.
One last fun fact for you: it takes five years to offset the premium price of a Prius. Meaning, you have to wait 60 months to save any money over a non-hybrid car because of lower gas expenses.

Economic Revitalization Plan for Arizona and other states as well

With the recent economic problems forecast-ed to become worse and the prediction by experts that it may take several years to recover from, states, counties, cities and citizens are starting to feel the effects. The State of Arizona is almost $2 billion dollars in the red and mines and businesses are laying off workers at a rate that hasn’t been seen since the Great Depression.

Our country has become a consumer nation, instead of the producer nation we once were. When we no longer have money to consume, everything is negatively affected. This plan proposes that states become less dependent on Federal government money and start producing products again.

The first item of this plan proposes that the State retake control and management of all lands within the state, excluding any land currently in title to the U.S. government, including monuments, military installations, and post offices. This includes all public forests.

The second item states that the State Forestry Agency will re institute the logging and timber industry and develop sustainable logging and thinning projects that will generate revenue. The third item states that the state will use a portion of the revenue generated by those projects to remove undergrowth and decrease the chances of catastrophic wildfires and increase the health of the forests. (Water sheds , former stream beds will be cleared ,allowing them retain water runoff adding to the sustainability of our aquifers.) These thinning s will be sent to new industries created to use the fuels for biofuels and wood products. This will generate jobs and revenues for counties as well as the state.

The fourth item will reopen all roads and trails in the forests that existed prior to 1976. Access to all areas of the forest lands will be crucial for the success of this plan. Counties will help decide these issues in their territories.

Fifth: The state will establish an Aerial Alert Team, consisting of a minimum of 2 C130s for wild fire suppression. These aircraft will cover the entire state and can be leased to other western states on a cost plus 15% basis. The planes will be on a 90 minute alert status and respond before fires get out of control. They will be equipped with heat seeking equipment and will be used as transport delivery systems, not combat operations. The state will own and operate the aircraft under the management of the state forestry agency. (The State will lease the aircraft , currently in surplus, @ $1.00 per year from the Department of Defense for a period not to expected to exceed 4 years . ) This rate reflects the fact that the Federal Government is directly responsible for the destruction and condition of our forest lands.

Sixth: The state will create tax incentives for the production of biofuels. Seventh: The state will study the viability of planting switch grass fields in burned out forest areas as well as other areas of the state.

Switch grass is an alternative to corn and other grain crops and can be grown under most conditions. It doesn’t need to take up agricultural lands and no pesticides or chemicals are needed to grow it. The grass grows up to 10 feet tall with a root system that extends 10 feet into the ground. Planting is required one time in 8-10 years. Switch Grass can be harvested with minimal equipment twice a year in most areas and is bug and drought resistant.

Switch grass generates 20 times the energy as that of corn. It puts nitrogen back into the soil instead of depleting the soil nutrients like other food crops. Up to 15 tons can be cultivated per acre, which equals about 1500 gallons of renewable bio-fuels per acre. The residue from the switch grass can be used to create electricity and helps to control erosion in damaged forests. It also may provides ground cover and forage for livestock and wild animals. The types of fuels that can be created include biodiesel, methanol, methane gas and hydrogen.

This plan could be implemented in a year and has the potential to fill many revenue needs. The plan will need to be treated like a business and will require support from the citizens to be put into practice. We will continue to follow the progress of this plan and report on future developments.

It is time has for local communities to take back control of their lands. Returning them to the production capabilities that nature intended.
