TO ALL AGENTS OF CHANGE
The news from Egypt and other middle eastern fronts indicate a generic restlessness with the kinds of governments we have all chosen to help us move to a more democratic age. Bodies that presume to manage the affairs of the public have always been corruptable and tend to move toward special interests without fail. Never mind the flags, and grand buildings, and pomp ... they are people who believe they have more privelege because they sit closer to the centers of power and authority.

Thank you Sir...152 men went into the Sunni Triangle in 2004 (Pre-Surge) and garrisoned the most-attacked FOB that year. 152 came home. Positive thought and harmonious action saves lives!
THE ECO-HOMESTEAD AT ARTESIA
FOOTPRINT FOR THE FUTURE
ARTESIA is a footprint for the future of land use in Hawaii and other places. It attempts to optimize the way the land is cultivated and settled to bring full benefits to the earth, the botanical yield, the life of the land, and the quality of life of those who dwell there. It is a three-acre ag parcel situated 1100 feet above the town of Hawaii on the big island of Hawaii. The director of this strategic design is social architect Jim Channon who has 40 years experience in this profession.
