When will the Failed Trump Administration start working on Jobs? Not minimum wage McJobs but good jobs where a person can earn a decent living.

July 17, 2017

Stop all this absurd nonsense and Do something REAL. American Retail Sales businesses are failing because people shop at Amazon for cheaper price. Soon all Malls will be ghost towns as KMART, Sears, Radio Shack and Macy’s close stores… Many people work as clerks in those stores… The entire “brick and mortar” store system is in crisis and there is no hope in sight. What will people do for a living now that factory jobs are done in China and Retail jobs are being automated out of existence?

This is an issue that is more important than Russian interference in the 2016 election.

before and after

Before and After. Questioning the wisdom of civilization. Here we have the forest, yet... A bigger and better grocery store would be great... 
yet... I like the forest... OH, what a tricky question... Well, we HAVE plenty of forest, Don't we?

Our Economy is starting to recover...

Civilization Coming soon.

MD: Until we put in policies that are conducive to an economic recovery, we will not have an economic recovery. Out unemployment will hover 
around the 9 to 10 % range for the forseeable future. I said this at the start of the recession, and so far I have been right. Sure, we will 
see spurts of recovery and Obama will try to make us believe there will be a recovery because of the election, but there will be no robust 
recovery needed to get this economy going.

Of Course, the obvious way to reduce unemployment is to RESET the social security retirement age to 55. Get the entire baby boom generation 
OUT of the work force. Let the NEXT generation have a chance.

OR, we could use come Comic Relief...

Thankfully, the price of a bus ticket remains the same even with the gas prices going CRAZY. It’s $2.20 round trip. This is less money than driving. Especially when you figure in the SURPRISE repair bills that come out of nowhere and whack you on the side of the head. Talk about a stressful situation… You and I have to get a high paying job to pay for the commute to our job. Circular madness… Yet, I have not found a way to earn a fortune online… My webstore has paid about $200 per YEAR. Sure, it is gratifying to sell my art at all, but it’s a long way from paying the rent and buying food.

My Invisible Friend (lyrics)

(Hay-Seuss)

I’ve got an invisible friend
and I call him Hay-seuss.
not Dr. Seuss or mother goose
but JESUS.

If you don’t believe
in Hay-seuss or mother goose
you’ll got to HELL (or Pittsburg)
and burn for eternity.

Oh, me and Jim Jones
we believe in Hay-seuss
and cyanide suicide
will get you quicker to his side.

I didn’t eat for three days
and I heard voices
God talked to me
like I was on LSD
and said you’re SATAN (or Peter Pan)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~@~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~.com
This Song was written when a friend of mine decided to find Jesus by fasting. He got real angry and became dangerous to be around… Considering that he spent time inside… I just walked the other way until he ate a big pile of spaghetti. FSM to the Rescue…
Here is some art to take your mind off troubles… Like friends acting crazy due to “Their Invisible Friend”.

Let’s suppose you wanted to distribute a secret message to your friends and family… Put your message in a Picture.  NO computer program would be able to “captcha” the secret message. It would take a HUMAN to read it… Comprende? Figure that the “Three Letter Agencies” have vast money to spend on data mining using computers but a dramatically smaller budget for employing PEOPLE to read your email. If everyone would just create messages that the computers can’t read, that would increase employment for voyeurs. The Peeping Toms that read your Facebook page are gainfully employed… Hey, it’s one way to decrease unemployment…
Hire more **@$#%#%#%%^&%^&%^&***
Of course, if you really want privacy… get the good stuff from PGP. At one point in time, it was a Federal Offense to export their data encryption programs. What a great selling point. Their programs are so good that they are ILLEGAL. 
Here is a gift to new musical groups… Lads Gone Native might be a great name for a Band. I’m not using it… You can have it!

Like, TOTALLY Different

May 17, 2011

See, spelling is important… We kill for PROFIT, They kill for PROPHET. Like, TOTALLY Different.

That’s how you can tell the difference between “Freedom Fighters” and “Terrorists”.

Operation CYCLONE trained Afghans to fight Godless Communists… The USSR…

What IF… We ended the CRAZYWARS[tm] brought our soldiers home and hired them to teach reading, writing and arithmetic to children? We could simply “Declare Victory” and have BIG Parades.

Federal Police Attack the Weak Intentionally

May 1, 2011

With CRAZYLAWS[tm] we have the Federal Government arresting Medical Marijuana Patients. Amazingly, they feel that attacking the weak is a good idea… I can see their point, what’s someone who is dying of cancer going to DO when the Police break down their door in the middle of the night… They certainly can’t fight back. It’s a low-risk law enforcement task… If the police tried to arrest Murders, that’s dangerous… so they enforce laws where the victims are defenseless. Hauling bedridden grandmothers off to jail… What a bunch of D.E.A.th Freaks.

Cut Defense Spending by 400 Billion Dollars

May 1, 2011

I applaud President Obama’s Idea of de-funding the DoD. Many of the proposed projects are total wastes of our taxpayer’s dollars. For Example: Buying new aircraft carriers. Gee, don’t we have ENOUGH obsolete hardware already? We should refund the money to the taxpayers and we promise to spend it feeding our families, paying rent and putting gas in the car so we can get to our jobs… THAT would get the economy moving… We would spend it on useful things, or useless stuff, but we would employ clerks in stores and farmers…

Send President Obama a message: Cut spending at DoD and DEA. Do it for the KIDS!

We also could employ Americans growing Industrial Hemp. NO ONE can give a valid reason for Industrial hemp being illegal. I challenge ANYONE to tell me a reason. gregvan@yahoo.com

Know Nukes Unclean Unsafe

Depleted Uranium has a half life of 4.5 Billion Years and must be guarded the entire time. If an ‘Errorist stole Used Nuclear Fuel they could make a “Dirty Bomb”.  A “dirty bomb” uses conventional explosives to distribute radioactive debris over a wide area… ANYONE could create such a device in the comfort of their own home.  Imagine the cost of employing security guards to watch the radioactive waste…

Ghost Train in Eureka, CA

January 3, 2011

This abandoned train has served Eureka as a graffiti magnet for over ten years. Recently the city has encircled the land with a chain link fence to preserve the artwork and prevent vandalism.

12 Volt Power station converts human fat into electricity

12 Volt Power station converts human fat into electricity

At Humboldt State University in Arcata California the Campus Center for Appropriate Technology has invented an electric power station that uses a standard exercise bicycle driving an automobile alternator.  A belt wraps around the wheel and the alternator. The electricity is stored in a standard auto battery for use later. more info at:

Afghanistan War causes increased Opium Production. UN study shows.

Opium Production in AfghanistanWiki graph of the failure of the US war in Afghanistan

Wiki graph of the failure of the US war in Afghanistan

The USA attack on Afghanistan has been an astounding disaster and Obama wants to continue the war. The “enemy” needs money to buy weapons so they grow opium… As the above chart shows, the US war has actually DOUBLED production. That’s why there is so much heroin for sale in your hometown. The “enemy” has been selling it to Americans as a hidden attack…. flood American Cities with a cheap addictive poison…  More info at:

solar ocean water to pure water distillery

saltwater to freshwater solar powered distillery

saltwater to freshwater solar powered distillery

This design uses the power of the sun to boil water creating steam (pure h2o) then uses the steam to drive an engine that pumps ocean water into the still. The steam can be collected when it condenses and be used for drinking, watering crops or washing. The remaining salt can be sold for a profit. This machine only works during sunlight hours so it automatically cleans itself at dusk. A typical installation could be used to turn desert countries into a fertile oasis. For example: If we built one in Saudi Arabia it could flood the empty quarter radically improving the ecology of the middle east. Imagine pumping thousands of gallons of freshwater into that desert…

An alternative design could use long black pipes centered at the focal point of a mirrored “half pipe” parabolic reflector.

120 mpg car by Kinetic Sculpture Laboratory in Arcata, CA

bicycle powered gasoline car 120 mpg

bicycle powered gasoline car 120 mpg

This car is both bicycle powered and gasoline engine. Suitable for on road traffic it has an orange triangle on the back to allow it to be diven legally on highways. It goes slowly but is perfect for inner city travel. When you are on level ground just use the pedals to propell the machine… Uphill, start the engine and zoom zoom zoom… Since more than half of the time you are going downhill or level, the engine is off and you use no fuel at all.

Dear President Obama: Let’s Build a fiber optic cable from Eureka, CA to Portland Oregon.

April 22, 2009

A construction project digging a ditch and laying cable would employ Americans. We currently have only one fiber optic cable connecting Eureka, California to the internet.

When that one gets accidentally cut, all commerce stops until it is repaired. No business using credit cards, debit cards and people just don’t carry around a lot of cash these days. When you were elected there was a lot of talk about funding infrastructure projects. All the design has been completed because the telecom companies have been talking about building this for a couple of years. They just need funding.
