Salt Water Irrigation Farming solving global warming problem

 Salt Water Irrigation Farming Solving Global Warming Problem.

Intelligent pioneers have found Salt water can be irrigated onto dry desert land to produce food; shrimp is an example of a well suited crop. I hope they grow  some lobsters!  Successfully producing a variety of positive effects on the local economy and more broadly the world economy.  Truly an amazing development.  With cooperation, peace, and hard work many people will have a brighter future.  I learned about the development on cable television.  MSNBC covered the Irigation Counteracts Global Warming.  This is a major development with exponential growth opportunities in the world expected as thousands of new acres  are farmed.  Much of the new trend is taking place in Mexico. http://www.celsias.com/article/seawater-farming-solution-rising-sea-levels-food-a/  Press coverage is sure to pick up on this development.

Expanding Statistical analysis of the world’s details a good idea.

The ability to better analysis details and long term effects objectively would be helpful to the future development of the world. The world has come so far in developing the success, and progress on a number of measurable levels.  Statisitics is the study of numbers and out comes of events. Statistics of so many areas need to be continually measured and even expanded in areas like government, science, law, security, education, and quality of life.  With accurate and reliable statistics one can make better judgement.    All of the world is near access to food, shelter, caring, and some prosper.  We should cherish what we have, and look to better understand statistics of mathematics to continue in that direction.   In an effort to fight fraud, preserve integrity, and do our best.

800 Charity Cars Organization gives automobiles to struggling families

Check out Charity cars website at  1-800- charity cars organization.    800 Charity Cars Organization  accepts donated vehicles. Offering free Towing service nation wide.  Then distributes those cars to families in need.  Donors gain a tax deduction of the full market value of the car or vehicle, and help others’.   Charity cars helps many people through non-profit organizations like the Working Poor and Battered Women to name a few.   Charity cars is not accepting applications for free cars in 2009 due to the heavy demand of current obligations.  I bought a car through a charity auto dealership that was set up to help tigers.  It was a great experience because I was able to buy more vehicle than I would have other wise and be part of something nice.

Why The Japanese Yen will continue to appreciate; Buyers!!

In a market with few opportunities; nothing looks more safe than the Yen a currency with assets, and limited liabilities.  Certainly a rare find and buyers of large sizes particularly Eastern Interests will likely undermine The United States currency given current challenging economic climate.

Mortgage Solution for the United States

Mortgage Solution for the United States

 

Mortgage problems should be in part fixed with passive permanent grants.  Both local and federal grants should be made available to those that want help. Grants are not new, and have been tailored to meet challenges of our country in the past.   A grant program dedicated too homeowners that want help, and need help would have a positive multiplying effect on the entire nation, and world.  Changes in infrastructure needs, debt levels, population demographics, and sustainability all contribute to the need for more government grants.  

 Vermont a leader in progressive ideas has used a small scale passive permanent homeowner grant in selected environmentally considerate multiunit complexes to the benefit of all Vermonters.  Vermont requires those who want to apply to the program to take a financial education workshop, and also helps people straighten out past credit issues. Vermont is one of only two states in the nation to sustain housing prices in the last year.  The grant would stay in place forever as percentage of ownership in the property supporting the homeowner, home values, the entire community, all with a financial interest, and or moral interest.   

Struggling home owners could use this type of grant to regain their ability to contribute to the economy. Home owners could transfer partial ownership of their home to the grant program.  Homeowners, banks, realtors, appraisers, bondholders, renters, and the entire world would benefit.  Being progressive in dealing with struggling homeowners will help deal more effectively with fluctuations in the business cycle, and allow our government to show its commitment to being thoughtful of all.  

 So much of a home owner’s life goes towards paying the mortgage. This maybe impractical, and unsustainable in part because of increased efficiencies, limited natural resources, global competition, and an aging population.  Resolving this material weakness will be good for everyone, and increase flexibility of our economy to meet future challenges.

Currently small regional banks have been exempt from banking regulation of their mortgage originations.  Banks have relied on the under educated, and under informed customer to be their main profit source.   Enticing people with low introductory rates into products they could not realistically afford in the long term.  The lapse of regulation that has occurred continues to contribute to the housing problem, and now threatens to hurt the entire economy.  All Banks need to be regulated in all areas to ensure fair treatment, and pass along increased efficiencies to society.

Further regulation of mortgage brokers will only work if all banking is regulated.  Brokers’ help customers get into programs created by banks.  If banks can do anything then increased regulation of brokers will be ineffective. Rates of profit allowed should be tighter on brokers because of increased efficiencies in recent years.  Government needs to from time to time pass along efficiencies gained by business/society to the consumer.  Too address and eliminate a weakness of capitalism.  

Rates of profit allowed should be lower in particularly on teaser rate mortgages, adjustable rate mortgages, stated income mortgages, and interest only mortgage programs because of the increased risk to bondholders who take on this debt.  Additionally smaller profits on questionable programs would encourage brokers to put customers in the right mortgage product for the customer.  This can be done by slight modifications to laws already in place by states, and the federal government.

Mandate all adjustments in rates to be indexed to too the federal funds lending rate. Rather than indexes that have the potential to distort adjustments materially higher. To ensure maximum multiplier effects by federal policy. To increase transparency of investments’ in mortgage bond; hence, helping all investors be able to make better decisions.  

Prepayment penalties on mortgages need to be reduced, and morally applied to everyone alike.  I would suggest no more than one year to reflect the increased ease at which mortgages can be created, and to not unreasonable slow down transactions of home investors. To fill a loop that unfairly sets up teaser rate borrowers to large pre-payment penalties that can erode equity in homes.

Passive or active government grant type owner ship in all banking comparable to what is already in place with large federal banks could be used to help banks retain market value, continue to work to improve efficiencies, and better align there moral values with everyone in society.  Government intervention would ensure the sustainability of the banking industry despite continuing unforeseen changes in their role.  Banks need to be better able to make more thoughtful decisions without fear of going out of business.     

Handling this sensitive issue quickly would be prudent to show Americas’ ability to respond quickly to changing information.  Permanent grants can be used by individual states, entire United States, the world, and or any area of human concern. I hope to continue to share my understanding on other issues our nation faces in the future.

Poker Players Alliance makes breakthrough identifying Congress members voting records!

Poker Players Alliance published a U.S map showing which congress members were friendly to Poker Players rights, and what was the voting record of voting.  Given many people don’t even knows the rules to many of the games is clear demonstration you can learn skill in all forms of poker.   Luck does play a significant role particularly in No Limit holdem; but, more complex games like 7 card stud limit holdem is a clear game where skill matters.  Forms of poker should be allowed with regulation to ensure safe fun and opportunity for the most people possible.   People can reap the benefits of technology if we work together to handle the hard problems.  Problems tend to occur on the edges of a society and initiatives led by intelligent people are working.  Government needs to address fraud in internet poker, and help protect people they serve.  How cools is this new polling product below available through www.Wordpress.com

Non profit organizations deserve recognition!

 

Non-profit organizations have contributed a great deal to the world.  Non-profit organizations and the like have great potential to help improve society.  Careful planning, aided by the creation of non-profit organizations and the use of available organizations can make a big difference in the future. 

Kiva.org gives small loans to people in need around the world that are paid back with out interest, and reused to help others.

Charity Focus Organization helps people get access to resources to starting a non-profit orgaization and provides opportunities to volunteer to help others.  It is an organization run by volunteers.  They carry a very positive message and even offer banners that can be displayed with positive messages all for free.

   Prairie Meadows is a non-profit  horse race and casino organization operating in the state of Iowa since 1989.  A public service the corporation offers is grant funding for other non-profit 501C registered corporation who look to add value between $5,000 and $25,000.  It is a competive grant with limitations on funding.  Providing needed funding to generate benefit around the state of Iowa.  I just wanted to share my admiration for the creativity and social purpose of this corporation.

Should the 6th District of Texas fire Joe Barton?

Joe Barton of the 6th district has boldly put forward statement calling policies mandating envirnonmental standards disatrous for the economy

Topstockblog senses a rat. Is Representative Joe Barton’s pockets enriched with oil money.  No more Joe’s of ignorance in Washington D.C. the capital of my country.  Joe Barton has questionable judgement. Topstockblog is equally dumb at times. In Topstockblog opinion Joe Barton is taking ownership of the failed lack of responsibility of American culture.  Oil should be stored in the ground where it is found to the best of our ability to ensure a society with opportunity, freedom, and beauty. Greed and gluttony are real threats to the long term sustainability of our communities.  Joe Bartons strong denial of responsibility to meet challenges of the future is weak.  He said the cost may be too high and disastrous for the economy.   Failure to stop global warming at any cost is ultimately destruction of the planet.  If you can’t stop a force then it’s motion has the potential to become perpetual in one direction towards the gravitational pull of the sun in which we orbit.  A common phenomenon resulting in the lack of life on all observable planets.  Good Bye Joe Barton the Representative from Texas.  Enjoy retirement.

More work needed to expand health care, meet housing needs, reduce costs, and share benefits most appropriately.

The government officials are scared, and do not even understand what is going on.  Citizens’ around the world need to get the best deal possible for each other. To recognize devisive, and unimportant topics that will effect the lives of around 4 billion people, and all the truly voiceless others. Government should abort Karl Rove strategies that advise dividing, and conquer voting techniques. The people can fight back against inappropriate forces as we see them. $100 billion dollars at a time released was most appropriate.  The discretionary $350 billion dollars is best divided into other needed funding that takes an eternal out look into the opportunity to find real solutions. $700 billion dollars could be too much spending. The government has a plan for the first $100 billion dollars.  After that is spent we can spend as needed with the vote of the senate or congress.  George Bush going to heaven may look like a long shot.  The United States long term position on fighting fraud, and inflation.   The United States must rise to the occasion to protect the environment and citizens’ around the world alike.  Learning from the past.   Responsibility is good; we all feel safe with low prices.  With inflation comes confusion, fraud, and manipulation.  Teach English to the world.  Smile, and give thanks.

The problems with nuclear development in the world.

 

 Enrichment of Uranium, and  the known consequences of the Iranian’s regimes inappropriate pursuit of Uranium are clear demonstrations of Irans lack of respect for world order.  This is also evidenced by military aggressive activities that include supplying military training to terrorist, and weapons experts.  The blind allowance of foreign illegal arms to move through the nations.  The supplying of weapons in Iraq.  Al Sadr who speaks for Iran is trying to continue the violence against the United States.   Al Sadr has murdered hundreds of thousands of Iraq’s people.   The Iranian regime looks more like devils head itself every day. 

 Topstockblog understands the peaceful nature of most all Iranian’s, and recognizes the failure of America to step up, and kick your ass.  As such, we can work together.  The oil cartel must work to reduce output while increasing global prosperity by reducing noncollectable debts in a shared understanding of common friendship.   Iran must stop torture, respect womens’ + mens’ + childrens’ free will.  Free will is the gift of god not to be challenged or Iblis will crush your skull for eternity on electric fire from the parallel world.

 Iblis is not the enemy of man.  Iblis has standards and fights for human rights.  Iblis attempts to help others with careful study and action.
Iblis Acknowleges all fighters and those who we fight for of any belief or lack there of.  Particularly hard line Muslims’ of noble ambitions as soldiers from Muhammad in search of ultimate peace.  Muhammad was a soldier of God as his job.  Muhammad clearly defined his violent acts as one of his jobs on earth.  Each of us must find our way.  My reincarnation as an economist of sincere concern for the planet.  By genetic make up destined to be concerned for others and of free will.  Born with one my adrenal glands in the wrong place.  Having often acted with no fear or too much fear.  Developed a strong fear for the future and an honest pursuit of solutions.  Having written numerous articles to help society and a percieved responsibility to improve my influence to help the world.    

   To prove my status as an angel of god is in heaven and remain defiant serving the people.  Fighting for human rights with common sense, education, documented study, careful planning, and happiness.   Not Allowing women to be bought and sold.   Not allowing others to judge unfairly.     Encouraging education, and shared goals.  Discouraging greed, and evil activities.  Encouraging participation in government.   Standards carried forward in business and personal life alike.  Faith for the weak to rely on.  Faith for the strong to challenge.  Sound principles that shall stand the test of time until the next prophet.  To help the people of the world solve problems through understanding. I command muslim authority as a prophet from god. I will prove myself as of good intention. Working to promote moral values of human rights, good values, and shared responsibility. To use my government with hell fire capabilities to make clear my connection with Iblis if necessary. a willing body be taken at gods will. As Iblis an angel despite my flaws. I grant atheist, Christians, Muslims, and all other beliefs the obligation to respect free will. 

 Jesus took great pride, and enjoyment in his own suffering.   God gave him a special gift of suffering.  We all have a need to suffer at times.  Good will, positive spirit, hard work, learning, and faith hold the answers.  Both, Jesus and Muhamid made clear their lives were given so you did not have to fight.   Muhamid advised  using violent strategies to end conflicts swiftly.  Muhamid expressed his understanding of his shared responsibility towards others. The rationale he used to justify his horrific actions. He also, made clear a third prophet of foriegn decent would rise to bring you glory. Glory as in justice on earth. I hope to bring you sound economic theory to help the world grow together.
My understanding of Muhamids intentions is to share responsibility. To share in the wealth and suffering of others to achieve potential. This is compatible with Christian, Hindu, Budhist, and Scientific faiths.
To gain from the contributions of others and not take for granted civic responsibility. My job as an economist looking to and now needs to be focussed on living in peace.   Taking responsible action to ensure economic conditions are improved.   Oil use of not.  People of the desert will be cared for.  Complex Algorithims can fight poverty, hunger, disease, and recognize the beauty of the planet.  
 

  Topstockblog war strategy brings hope of sharing more extensive and complete coordination with all middle eastern nations, China, and Russia.   Russia has new explosives that will allow for the destruction of complete cities without using Uranium.    As leaders other nations must step up to end this war swiftly before violence breaks out.   Topstockblog acknowledges that
Topstockblog ensures as an American protected by anti government assasination principles encourage Iraq to stand with the United States. Topstock offers promises based on evolutions principles. Iran is a shared Enemy. Topstock blog policies will bring economic sustainability, access to health care, food, electricity, jobs, education, peace, right, freedom to worship, and a strong ally.

  Topstockblog is on the left side of politics and antiwar by moral principles.   I for concern for safety of all people.  Women shall not be covered, and sold like heathens.  Minds shall not wasted,  Oil shall not be pumped endlessly in the sky.

Iran has continued to attempt to drown the United States in debt and murder people oppossed to Iran in Iraq. Use of suicide bombers and Iranian made explosives in Iraq.  Iran is now near 30 years of failed policy. As a Iraq writer shared to the world you can’t eat oil. We have food and our ability to be part of the solution should not be ignored. ear evil regime of Iran’s existence they have oppressed their people and pushed hateful messages toward western nations.  As John Mcain has called for BOMB, BOMB, BOMB Iran!   The countless public and private speeches on the evil of the Americans. The world must stand up to the evil, and take appropriate action to response.

 Iran’s violently took over of the nation in the late 1970’s and has since continued to use the threat of violence.  This threat is greatly accleratted as Iran has doubled enrichment of Uranium multiple times over the last few years.   The nation does nothing to stop terrorist.  The nation trains terrorist that carry out attacks around the world targeting woman and children. through systematic threat of violence and false promises. They have failed to take down Iraq and have failed to win the hearts of the people. The Iranian regime is a curse from hell. That shall soon reach there faite. I just hope Russian and China will initiate the fight to ensure the swift destruction of the Iranian brigades.

In these times of looming war, I ask all concerned citizens of the world to be on look for violent threats and report them to government aouthorities. For the world to join together to stop and if necessary destroy the nation of Iran.   Iran threatens the world by creating economic policies that will cause great suffering around the globe.  Iran has consistently demonstrated their lack of concern for human rights, women, and other cultures.

  America on the other hand is turning the corner to correct errors in judgement of the retiring generation.  We are going after those who commit crimes. Fixing past mistakes, solving the energy problem, trying to communicate with people who need help. Trying to be a more thoughtful neighbor with good intentions. As one man I work for millions hopefully to the benefit of all to fullfill shortfalls in communication and education. I worry so you don’t have too. Of course, if you are reading this you most likely share my concerns and I applaude your attention. Society must work achieve principles of evolution, and provide benefits to all people to promote beneficial cooperation utilizing all assets. As a whole community we can solve problems. Principle of sound economy must be adherred to achieve this very elusive target. Freedom of choice, freedom of religion, shared concern, honesty, community participation, population management, security, human rights, and shared technology are all parts of a sound economy.    Education, jobs, and thoughtful policy will help communicate the principles of cooperation.  Much of my message is hoping to prevent war and turn Iran around; but,  no one can see the future.
More detailed coverage of my study of the Iranian situation.  Preventing wide spread uncontrolled nuclear proliferation is a necessary control to prevent destruction of the world in the future. As such stopping the Iranian Regime will have a positive long term economic effect on the world regardless of how it is achieved in my opinion.
North Korea has cooperated and is in great need of food.  Millions of North Koreans have suffered throughout history from a lack of food.  The United States of America should immediately pursue aggreements with China to supply food to North Korea. With good will America can cut energy use, find principle of more free time, and reduce debt with world partners. Simply by negotiating deals that provide for long term shared goals of sustainable economic benefit.

Responsible government ideas, lower taxation

The government has an obligation to pursue a course of business similar to that of a corporation in an effort to protect the people, reduce fruad, and promote a successful society.  Reduced taxation is needed to maintain a global competitiveness, and follow our developed understanding of the course of evolution.    With government ownership in business fruad can be greatly reduced, and eliminated possible.   On the other hand,  high rates of taxation; led by greed, results in predictable destruction.

  Corruption related concerns, and known benefits of a steady hand in developing a society must be acknowledged.  George Bush, and many other people have failed in life to do their best respecting others.  The possibility that many people in government do not have the people in mind must be addressed.  The government should only be granted $100 billion dollars at a time.   $100 dollars is a lot of money to the majority of people around the globe.   $100 billion dollars is a good number to start with moving the economy to a more stable position.  Money in the hands of a few suspect characters or corporations will surely insure more of the same predictable destructive forces that led us here.  The allowance of dividends to be paid with government money is ridiculous.     Lower taxes should be accompanied by government ownership or participation in joint projects to most efficiently meet the needs of the world.   Cooperation to reduce interest payments of the United States of America, and to most effectively reduce predictable disfuntion in the future for the world as a whole is a good idea. 

  When profit rates of corporations dip below zero in a purely capitalist society taxation moves to zero.  Yet consumers are still expected to pay property taxes even when they have lost thier job or personal circumstances prevent them from doing so. The clear benefits of working with nations around the world  can be achieved.   With consumers tapped out, and tax collections declining the world as a whole loses.  If we work together with an understanding that society as a whole can grow together.  Through honest effort we can work to resolve important issues of all people.  We can work towards a healthy world working towards honest goals.

Paulson might just be a fraud of Wall Street, More concern for the long term potential rahter than profit margins.

Secretary Paulson (Updated 10/08/2008) has advised the buying of bad debt from rich bond holders.  To avoid worse consequences in the future for the economy. This is a direct violation of capitalist principles of allowing debts that are noncollectable to be declared worthless. George Bush purchased $25 Billion dollars in bad car loans. He is neglecting his duty to represent all Americans equally. America should have said no to this bailout in Topstockblog’s opinion.  America is already been burned once by Paulson buying bad debt.   Paulson the former head of Goldman Sach’sthe merger king of the world a certainly collapsible industry as it serves to concentrate, and isolate capital by the process of mergers.  Paulson’s actions do little or nothing for average, and poor Americans in Topstockblog opinion.  America deserves a shared ownership with corporations creating an opportunity to greatly lower taxes.  The rich who own bonds; not, average hard working Americans.  Many of the rich to benefit from the current buy out of bad debt are foreigners. The children of America should not receive more bad debt.   I apologize, and sympathize with unfortunate holders of bad debt in retirement funds. More unrecognized bad debt added to the national debt is a bad idea.

United States Senate refuses to discuss taking away tax breaks to Oil Corps.

A little sun light on why the U.S senate refuse to discuss taking away Oil corporations tax breaks ?  In a year with more record profits while Americans suffer.   The senate also failed to discuss tax cuts that are going to expire for renewable energy programs.  Tax hikes on Oil Corporations, and Pro tax cuts on renewable energy that will help our country and the world deal with both economic and environmental concerns.  Many democrats in the Senate say they are pro tax hikes on oil, and pro tax cuts on renewable energy programs.

    A loss of access to energy and environmental damage are dangers that need to be addressed through good judgement followed by sound action.  So talking about this problem and bringing sunlight to the United States Senators opposed to talking about Oil tax breaks of 17 billion dollars over the next ten years, and cutting renewable tax breaks is a mistake.  Inappropriate influence of Oil Cartels, Large Military powers (yes us), lies, and bad decisions made by people in power must have sunlight be brought to them.  A little sun light will help prevent these problems in the future.  All these events have the potential to destroy lives.  It’s just a matter of how risk is tolerated, and how well it is found to be controllable.

  Thanks for reading,  A special thanks and recomendation to United States senator Sam Wexler.   Mr. Wexler is doing a great job and sharing hope for justice with all around the world.  He continues to do so much to make are nation work appropriately.

Democrat Barney Frank issues statement of grievance against the Whitehouse + Republicans for failure to regulate government sponsored enterprises like housing lender Fanie Mae sooner.

Frank Statement on Congressional Action Regarding GSE Legislation

 

 

 Washington, DC – House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank (D-MA) issued the following statement today in response to accusations from a White House spokesperson that Congress has been reluctant to move forward on GSE legislation for many years:

 

“The truth is when President Bush took office, and the Republicans controlled both houses of Congress, he did not make any progress on comprehensive legislation to reform the regulation of the Government Sponsored Enterprises.  It was not until 2005, when the House, on a bipartisan basis, and over the President’s objections finally passed a reform bill.  It died in the Senate in part because the White House’s failure to make it a priority.

 

“In 2006, when the Democrats regained control of Congress, House Democrats made it one of our highest priorities, and passed a bill in May 2007.   Finally, a full year later, as the financial crisis worsened, the Senate passed and the President signed GSE reform. 

 

“It is unfortunate that ideologues in the White House who opposed common sense regulation did not join Congress early enough to help prevent the financial firestorm that now threatens the entire economy.”

Congress Representative Kirsten Gillibrand and the Public Forum Institute hosted economic summit on energy, and technology opportunities in New York

The 2008 economic summit was a great experience, and well attended at the Gideon Putnam Hotel.  The conference brought together influential people interested in economics of the region.   I learned about some interesting opportunities.   New windows that save great deals of energy in each installed house, and the strength of the windows was a highlight that stands out in my mind.  Classes on  gaining access to capital, and how to employ existing capital in the New York region.   Wind Farms can be created, and are being created.  

 

(8/21/2008) Congress Representative Kirsten Gilibrand of the 20th District of Upstate New York is proving to be a strong member.  The government website linked above documents and provides links to much of the hard work she has put into action since she took office.   Kirsten Gillibrand, and The Public Forum Institute is hosting an economic forum in September to discuss ideas to build a bright future for the region.  Topstockblog is very happy about receiving an invitation to the event and will let readers know more after attending the event.

Fannie + Freddie used poor accounting to create the largest public bail out ever,+ link, + quote from Ny Times

Freddie and Fannie Mae    The two largest lenders in the United States housing market appear to have been manipulated numbers recently to offset the timing of losses, and used other complex accounting manipulations for a variety of reasons.  The corporations state they were trying to help the most people possible.   Topstockblog opposes public buyout by tax payers with out public ownership.

-quote below taken from http://www.nytimes.com/2008/09/07/business/07fannie.html?hp —-

“Regulators are also said to be scrutinizing whether the companies were trying to manage earnings by waiting to add to their reserves. Both companies have gradually increased their reserves for loan losses — Fannie’s reserves today stand at $8.9 billion, and Freddie’s at $5.8 billion.

Other companies, like private mortgage insurers, have been quicker to identify large losses and have set aside much greater amounts. Fannie and Freddie have dribbled out bad news with each quarterly announcement, suggesting they may be trying to manage this process.

Finally, regulators are concerned that the companies may have mischaracterized their financial health by relaxing their accounting policies on losses, according to people familiar with the review. For years, both companies have effectively recognized losses whenever payments on a loan are 90 days past due. But, in recent months, the companies said they would wait until payments were two years late. As a result, tens of thousands of loans have not been marked down in value.

The companies have injected their own capital into pools of securities containing these loans, arguing that their new policies are helping more borrowers.

Under conservative accounting methods, changing these policies would not have any impact on the companies’ books. However, people briefed on the accounting inquiry said that Freddie Mac may have delayed losses with the change.”

Cheaney may be tied to KBR oil bribes in Nigeria; but, never questioned?

Vice President Dick Cheney an executive at Haliburton who served during over a decade filled with bribes estimated over $180 million dollars.  Will never be questioned as to what his role in the fruad and/or knowledge of bribes paid? What?  Where is the justice in that? Time to rewrite some laws in Topstockblog’s opinion.  Check out this link covering the story of KBR inqiury broader, Federal investigation goes beyond a single incident in Nigeria.   The fraud is gradually being uncovered through brave actions of a few honest, and or pissed off people.  Karl Rove’s tactics that could be used on you by aquantances dividing and conquering your votes. Watch out for the Rah…Rah…with out substance, and stand with courage.  Understand humans can solve the complex problems facing the world.  Change takes time and persistence.   Topstockblog strongly supports throwing many Republicans out of office as a testament to the pursuit of honesty.  Dishonesty is never the best way forward.  Topstockblog does support the limited number of Republicans who are not served by greed and ignorance.  Those who have taken great strides to promote morals, sound economic policy, and other valuable services to our nation.  Evolution only works out with learning from the past.

Japanese Prime Minister Resigns – Financials sell off heavily in Japan!

Japanese Prime Minister resigns in response to a weakening economy and allegations of dishonesty. The U.S. Stock markets will move lower as the contagion of distrust spreads, and clears a path into recession in Topstockblog’s opinion.   Expect more permanent losses in U.S. financial stocks. This could possible be one of the most healthiest recessions in world history.  Bringing to light problems in the economy and getting results.  May be not, the invention of electricity was a pretty good economic develoment.

Energy Legislation – Flexible Fuel Taxation, Reduce Reliance on Trading Markets, Car Powering Batteries,

 

   Apeciating what we have is an important part of the future.  I like what you have done, and are looking to do.  I have a few suggestions to build on past legislation.  I would look at flexible taxation for oil consumers as part of the strategy to better match an educated understanding of reality.  Oil and Gas corporations have a duty to share holders to maximize profits, and this is often in contrast with doing what is best for consumers.  Two thirds of all U.S corporations paid 0 dollars in federal taxes last year.  Corporations influence the government in some cases in ways that lead to much suffering for some people.  The government should pass legislation to use a flexible taxation policy.    This would include taking no taxes when gas trades above say a fixed price of $3, and would take taxes on gas when the price was below $3 keeping the price constant to the consumer, and business alike.  Nothing makes someone more angry than when they feel they have been tricked.  

   Encourage sharing, and less greed.  Many Americans or shall I say most grow up looking for unrealistic riches.   Most follow all the rules, and then are greatly distressed when they do not achieve the great riches.  In many cases people can not meet basic needs.  We can learn from China the happiest nation on the planet in the sense that realistic expectations leads to the greatest happiness.   Predictable energy prices are an important part of developing our society to reach potential.  
      Taxes revenue can be collected when oil is lower than target maintaining the price at $3.  Tax revenue and debt reconciliation of balance sheets should occur currently recognizing profits not traditionally recognized by idle valuable lands.  Money threatens to become distorted by large entities + nations that want to build assets long term through accumulating massive amounts of debt dollars.  Taxes collected can be used to pay government expenses, even profits to corporations, and other community projects.

    Trading markets are overly concerned  with profits, and have long been non-profit enterprises to keep markets functions.  Large funds of money can become very disruptive, non-functioning.  Government needs to become competitive in a constructive way with these large money funds to protect the citizens’ of the world.  Government should negotiate long term contracts with other nations like Canada + Russia + Venezuela, to supply oil and cut out all the dealers + unneeded markets that have proved disruptive, and threaten long term stability.  

Oil prices went to low in the 1980’s and many technologies were forced to be shelved.  Prices going to low is counterproductive.  Energy policy legislation  should look at using batteries to power cars.   The use of battery powered cars eliminates much of the pollution, and cars may travel three times as far on comparable energy consumption.   Current cars can be modified, and gas stations can be modified to change batteries instead of pump gasoline.

Barrack Obama chooses Joe Biden as his running mate to be vice president

Senator Joeseph R. Biden Jr.  is chairman of the United States Senate Foreign Relations Committee.   Joe Biden checks out to be a good choice after reviewing some important voting records.   Topstockblog endorses Joe Biden because of his voting record.  

  Topstockblog does share a few worries about the Barrack Husein Obama – Joeseph R. Biden Junior Ticket for the 2008 president election. Joe Biden has been overly critical of Barrack Obama according to an MSNBC link below.   Joe Biden did vote for the war in Iraq; not good. The campaign may be to closely tied with bailing out rich investors. Responsibly American’s need to be given more of the credit for the good choices they have made. The suffering that goes on in our communities can be alleviated through thoughtful legislation led by thoughtful + intelligent people. The American government needs to become more intelligent. When we loan banks money because they have run out of money the American public needs to gain in the upside of any future money made on these loans. What is good for Corporations is good for Americans. Prophets; not Profits need to lead our world. Generous loans or bailouts saving bond holders + share holders is not appropriate unless radical change in governments around the world occur to support honesty and good will.
  Topstockblog needs to get new legislation through the government removing the executive powers ability to take facts away from the senate and congress. Ignorance only goes so far. Facts led by responsibility is needed.  
  Barrack Husein Obama is lucky to have had his experiences growing up over seas to know that war was not the best way forward.  Topstockblog was also against the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Joe Biden and Topstockblog both have suffered severe head trauma.  Not good; of course we are both relatively young at ages 65 and 32 respectively.   Senator John Mcain was a prisoner of war for years in Vietnam. Not good. 

 said he wanted a vice president who could help him with the economy.  Joe Biden is at the forfront of trade opportunities, understading, and awareness being chairman of the Foriegn Relations Commitee.
MSN just ran an article on Barrack Obama’s choice of Joe Biden to be the Democratic vice president in the 2008 election.
Here are some of Joe Biden’s voting record,
MSNB Barrack Obama to speak this evening + leaking of V.P. choice.
– Voted 2003 to use military force in Iraq.
– Voted 2003 against the Bush tax cuts.
– Voted against Republican Supreme Court nominees William Rehnquist, Robert Bork, Clarence Thomas, John Roberts and Samuel Alito.

Should congress prosecute Karl Rove the brain of George W. Bush?

Democrats.com supports prosecuted Karl Rove and switching away from ATT phone services.  I have attached an impressive list of sources included in the email.  Toptsockblog like takes a bearish position on ATT going forward.  A friend was sold the stock through soliciation over the phone at much higher prices in the IPO that was well over priced.

Some people believe Karl Rove should be prosecuted for criminal crimes.
Topstockblog is not sure on the best course forward. An investigation seems like a step in the right direction. Certainly political activism like reading and or discussing tough topics would be helpful. Can we really expect government to do all the policing if the peole do not care or take the time to care? does believe in governing using methods from the 1800’s. Comedian Ben Stien calls Karl Rove a good friend and describes Karl as good hearted. Topstockblog believes an appology from Karl Rove to the world would be appropriate.  Karl is said to have been part of a conspiracy Topstockblog recently watched on a plan that ws formed by the rich and elite to control the world forever with little concern for others.  Again, mistakenly a few individuals had innapropriate influence over important details in the economy with out concern for the people.   ignorant did not account for principles of technology, innovation, and intelligence to be able to do more with less while taking other complex variables into account to maximize satisfaction while minimizing harm. For example a basic principle of doctors of do no harm could be brought into all industries to increase the friendlyness of our economy.
Just because strategies of trickery used during the 1800’s worked in business, doesn’t mean we should not work to find better ways. The world needs to work to find ways we can work towards solving problems in the most positive way. Setting minimum standards and aiming towards other appropriate standards.

Barrack Obama should choose Senator Patrick Leahy from Vermont to be vice president

Barrack Obama is in search of the next possible Vice President of the United States.

Topstockblog thinks Barack Obama will select senator Patrick Leahy from Vermont to be his Vice President.   Topstockblog has sent letters to many senators around the nation to help solve and prevent major problems in America.  Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont has communicated back personally, and recently shared his intentions to keep Topstockblogs words in mind, when negotiated with Iraq’s government on policiy going forward with the intention of Iraq taking responsibility .  Senator Leahy was effective in getting millions of dollars in cash immediately handed out to the Iraqi people to meet daily living needs for food, water, and housing.  Followed by Iraq spending 47 billion dollars  or roughly just under half the money Iraq had saved up from oil sales.  Spending the money effectively ended the war because the people and the world gained enough trust in the governments intention to support the people and use the oil money for good.   Serving to reduce political corruption, ensure money in Iraq is spendable, and eliminate the terrorist ability to use war to drive America broke.  Senator Leahy is a great asset to America.     Al Gore together with Barrack Obama would put a solid duo in the White House.   Al Gore has previously stated he is not interested in the position.  Maybe, Al Gore would be open to some part time communication with the White House?  Barrack Obama shows a tremendous ability to learn, listen, and communicate effectively.  

 Obama seeks info on Dodd in vice president search
“Dodd, 64, is a five-term senator with a lengthy foreign policy resume. A fluent speaker of Spanish,  served in the Peace Corps and has had a strong interest in Latin American affairs throughout his career. A longtime member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, he’s been able to wield a heavy influence on U.S. involvement in the region.” Quote taken from the above link 7/11/08

Maybe Hillary Clinton could end up being the next vice president? No news reports on this subject since early June.  Hillary Clinton put her full support behind Barrack Obama for president of the United States of America with former president Bill Clinton in tow.

Ballot iniatives; Paid sick days, money for alternative fuels, and thoughtful policies part of a strong future

Ballot initiatives around the country can help society fix problems.   Government elections are a form of voice that must be excercised to protect society.

Balot inititives in local elections could  address many needs.   Iniatives switching to alternative fuels need to be part of the election process this year.  We don’t want to destroy the environment the source of life in the world because of a little greed.   When an ecosystem crashes the whole system is often destroyed.  Pay big oil to keep the oil in the ground.  Spread the technology.  Change the rules to make the world work.  We need to work together.   Many nations have created alternative fuels in the United States.

12 States have initiatives on the ballot so far in 2008 concerning the need for paid sick days to all employees.  

Topstockblog brain stormed some ideas to get on your local ballots –

–  Keeping the air clean policy supporting carbon farming techiniques,

 – Investing in technology,

  – Programs that help society grow together,

 –  Money for energy efficient appliances to be purchased in the home

 – Accounting for illegal immigrants to utilize a strong work force and protect human rights

  –  Work with Farmers to solve environmental problems

  – Give citizenss the right to reject social security payments to reduce death taxes

  –  Limit the use of tasers in the police department and increase the usage of camera’s + animals to provide security.

 –   Move to a flat tax at much lower rates.  Russian moved to flat tax of 13%. 

Bonds with a negative 5% rate to bring capital into the system would be a good idea

Many of these policies are founded in an understanding the people in the future would pay a great price to ensure the world uses it’s resources carefully.   Middle East nations need to be paid to keep oil in the ground.  The world needs to work hard to move in a thoughtfull direction.   Towards honest solutions that take advantage of the current institutions ability to help the world.    Profits can be realized for conservation,

Distributing housing, and auto mobiles directly to military forces would be a great way to expand our military force utlizing over capacity, and cutting paid salaries greatly.  Helping the government meet long term moral obligations.  Better aligning the entire community.  Large disparities in wealth around the world is counter productive long term.  Human have a divine quality, and need to recognize this quality in others.  Savage acts are just that.  We have the capability and responsibility to innovate to increase the sustainability of our economy.  No more recessions.

  The negative percentage paid out can be used by honest hard working rich people to contribute to the United States debt load problem, and reduce taxes to be paid in death.   We can innovate.   Batteries can go 26 years according to an agiatated caller.

A community in Colorado reached 10% alternative fuel targets 8 years early after mandate at lower cost.  Now moved to 20% target according to C-SPAN television. States take the lead in alternative fuels, and environmental protection. Washington’s lazy or ignorant politicians need to be sent home. States that have done nothing to deal with problems needs to be fired. No offense.  States must mandate high targets.  Complete Green movement needs to move forward. 

Paying oil drillers, and oil corporations profits to keep oil in the ground is part of the solution.

Flexible tax policies to reduce gas prices immediately realizing the benefits to be recorded in the future.

Transmission lines need to be grown.  Another caller thanks the Troops.
PGE would not release records of alternative fuel initiatives according to the viewer.  Only way to cut big oil and government out is through conservation, and alternative fuels.  Ballot initiatives. 

Caller cites large needs for New York State.  Coal plant in Ohio a problem.  Russia has limited sensitivity to the environment the caller sited.

Government and mass media suppress the truth in the United States; Lower Taxes key to a moral society

 

The United States government is suppressing science and technology.   The executive branch (President – George W. Bush) suppresses technology, environmental, and probably much more from even the other houses of government by executive privileges.   Lets stop accusing China of media control until we are effectively dealing with our own problems of suppression.   Any time I publish anything of controversy it is systematically suppressed.  This happens with far to great a frequency to be random chance.  Limiting dissent (acess – distribution) of information in the United States written by Jules Boykoff of the American University. The Western Political Science Association held a conference in 2004 to discuss the significance of Limiting dissent of information in the United States.

Ballot initiatives fairly worded are the key to a successful election in the United States.   As the world reaches and exceeds maximum sustainable population at over three point some odd billion people the truth is the only possible cure. 

   Some businesses, corporations, and people have found ways to beat people down to recognize profits.  Taking advantage of slim margins that are most effective with high taxation policies.  With high rates of taxes corporations invest heavily in finding ways to not pay taxes.   Two thirds of corporations paid nothing in taxes last year.   Russia has moved to a flat taxes at 13 percent, proving highly successful in increasing taxes collected  and reducing fraud.   The need for lower taxes is clearly transparent.  Lower Taxes is key to reducing fraud in the world economy, and in this case horse racing.  For example Algorithims are the prescribed method of trading much of the money in the stock market.   Large parties control all aspects of the trade targeting small investors. Recently many  stocks have become so over sold despite profits because of the system is so unfriendly there are no real buyers.   Honest discussions and fair coverage of all sides of issues is a clear path to real solutions.

Georgia should make peace, Russia should re-explain the military actions.

 

(Update 8./20/2008 – Russia still has yet to figure out how to go forward with Georgia.  Russia and concerned citizen’s around the world world the United States government is biased against Russia.  Topstockblog asks readers what is best going forward for evolution?  Topstockblog has no idea; but, a careful guess tells me Russia should establish some kind of comprehensive understanding with the United States on reducing bias.  For example congress may be responding to filtered data provided by the executive branch on the subject.  An honest senator may well have voted for the war in Iraq regretable because of filtered data.  Honest leaders, careful communication, hard work, technology, people, and innovation all should play a part in resolving the conflict.  )

(Update 8/15/2008 – Russia explains that Georgia has been posturing, and speaking aggressively about the military plans towards Russia.  Topstockblog reafirms it’s support to Russia, and to work with Russia.  Russian diplomat expressed a strong willingness to work with the United States to meet challenges of the world, and a firm respect for the United States.)

Google has deleted Georgia maps indicating Russia has won the war annexing Georgia.  Topstockblog supports the Russian move to take over the geographically desirable land of Georgia.  Georgia will bring a beautiful part of ocean front property to Russia.  This move greatly increases Russia’s ability to be a lasting world power.   The move is aggressive.  The territory is historically under Russian rule is in part why Topstockblog stands behind the aggressive Russian military excercise.

  The move does violate international aggreements.  I encourage Russia to come forward with an intelligent explanation for the decision to take over Georgia.   Topstockblog stands firmly against evil intentions; please explain your actions Russia.

The world benefits from encouraging young minds to live happy, and sober until 21 years old

 

Encourage young people to live alcohol, and drug free until age 21 would be helpful in dealing with world problems.  In America much of the talent pools of labor are not ever reaching mental maturity in part because of alcohol and drug consumption  Minds n before the complete development of the mind.  

 Personally part of the problem drinking age when I was younger.  I must admit the truth to this.  I watch too much energy be wasted on alcohol, tobacco, drug, stealing, and posturing than other wise healthy.  One should not consume alcohol before the legal age of twenty one to fully enjoy the beauty of alcohol without losing a part of your brain that may be needed in the world.   One must take responsibility at a young age to engage in the educational system.  Education is not a goal that is easily attained, and can take many forms.

   Topstockblog gives my respect to all those that fight the good fight of sobriety.  Paying a responsibility before they can fully understand the personal and shared responsibility in waiting to be of drinking age. to ensure you develop the later part of the brain that in large part foccusses on caring and understanding for others.  

  I watched a judge give a passionate and well communicated speech in court on the benefits on the brain on not wasting life drunk. 

Important facts the judge shared include.

1. 30% of all youth underage of 21 in the world do not consume alcohol! 

2.  5 Drinks of Alcohal a week between ages 17-21 will reduce you lifespan likely approximately      2-5 years.  

3.  Car speed is the number one killer of youth in America killing over 3,000 youth tragically every year. (implied point is slow down, and realize dangers are greater than imagined)

4. The mind of a person is not fully developed until the age of 25. (The last stage of development largely concerns with our compassion towards others)

— end —

 I drank to early, and developed bad drinking habits.  My mind is said to be stuck at 9 years old development age level irrespective of my bright inteligence by a jail psychologist, I saw today before getting out of jail.  My mind has never been allowed to develop to maturity.  I figured I had some brain to waste.  I have had my fun; but, I have been through more than my share of violence and suffering due to my drinking.  Much of this self inflicted.  It took 9 years to get a four year college degree.  I have come through a school of hard knocks and want to share the danger of alcohol to the youth of the world.   As the reincarnation of Iblais I walked the hard road so you don’t have too.  I worry, so you don’t have too.

  The world goes on and we all have value.   Despite are short comings however small or large.

Posturing political positions for idealogical gain like supporting human rights with careful boundaries.

  Posturing is a strong political stance without necessarily really needing the action to come through.  Most species, identities, and specifically people have taken postures to achieve ones goals.  My lesson learned is that going to far in a any direction will possible lead to one’s own demise.  Topstockblog is attempting to appropriately send  Iran, and any other person, or party a message that fraud or complete ignorance will not be tolerated. 

  Topstock is a strong supporter of a firm, and god willing unbreakable posture of  direct ultimatium to the Iranian nation.   Iran would control of the world by force if it could along with other hard line religious and or idealogical parties.  Topstockblog is in the battle until the end and will not let the world down.  Iblas hopes to share an earth someday that achieves understanding with out sacrificing morals or lacking development.   Iblis hopes this can be achieved around the world with careful planning.  

 

hard work, personal responsibility, and happy communities.

No more vails that support uneccessary suffering by women allowing a comndition that colloborates with the smuggling of weapons, unwilling woman, physical abuse, drugs and heat exhaustion.

    Not in my world.  Women are creatures of beauty, and in need of much understanding for their human rights around the world.

Algorithm’s can help solve the world’s most serious problems.

An Algorithim is a sequence of numbers, ideas, events, and or any sequence that occurs in the world.  An Algorithim made by man can solve many of the worlds most pressing problems. This is possible because technology allows us to do more with less resources over time with effort.   The world can work to understand challenges, and exert appropriate influence where needed.  The worlds ability to cooperate is becomingly increasingly important.  New and old challenges have gone unmet.  Africa is in despair, economies in America are losing jobs.  Natural and man made disasters would be well dealt with through Algorithms or money targeted at fixing the problems.   Personal responsibility to meet challenges of the world is higher than originally estimated by society.  Environmental damage threatens are entire ecosystem.   When an ecosystem breaks down it often leads to the complete destruction of the entire ecosystem.   

         The ability of a society to ensure people are safe, happy, and not destructive is a major challenge of the future.  Some populations are growing with no concern for the effects on the world   Dealing with problems by employing available resources is part of the solution.   Developing innovative and technological sensible ways in addition to all the great work so many people are doing is needed to deal with these problems

 Algorithm:

1.  Run algorithims through the entire world economy to most appropriately meet needs and wants while improving accountability. With a stated goal of maximizing functioning, appropriate influence, sustainability, and faith in the world to meet challenges.

 2. Focus on improving technology and sharing technology to meet needs and provide opportunities

 3. Pay profits to reduce waste and recognize past contributions to society.  Reducing the reliance on arcaic strategies that are often are oppressive and inappropriate.  Improve business leaders ability to pass along benefits to customers without an exclusive focus on profits.

 4. Pay checks to people to remain idle resources ready to employ if needed

 5. Fight Fraud, and let people know that we will forgive; but, it is not ok for people to inappropriate hurt others.

 6. Provide Education

 7. Reduce debts of nations through negotiations and shared benefits of working together

 8. Eliminate trade barriers that are often oppressive

 9. Employ people universally to meet security needs, and protect freedoms of communities

10. Adjust policy by principles of doing more with less employing technology and innovation

11. Provide funding for opportunities in recreational activities

12.  Feed the hungry and help them meet basic standards

13. Encourage participation in the economy through friendly policies like reducing taxes.

Peter Peterson Foundation bringing positive civic responsible issues forward.

Peter Peterson Foundation working to solve America’s problems in thoughtful ways. CSPAN shared a presentation by the newly created foundation Monday July 28th 2008.

The foundation is dedicated to building a better world. Making up for lost time of the generations irresponsible behavior. The charity created early into 2008 by a rich trader who wants America to continue to increase it’s standard of living and ensure financial responsibility is met.

The need for legislation initiatives to fix problems; i.e. advertising targeting children; taser abuse by police; energy solutions; carbon farming; education; real savings of natural resources; developing the community; morals initiatives; utilizing people assets; etc…

Getting important on ideas on ballot initiatives seems like a good way to combat, identify, isolate, and solve problems in our communities.  Problems in our world.  Get in touch with local leaders to learn more about view points, and positive solutions.   Most of the good ideas have been created, and our in use in communities around the nation.  It is very important for communities, and people to share information.   
Children in the United States were target 1.6 billion advertising dollars dedicated to food products advertising in 2007.   The federal trade commission has made suggestions to deal with problems associated with unhealthy, and inappropriate advertising targeting children.

Excerpt from Yahoo news below 7/29/2008 —

The FTC made several recommendations as part of its report to stop marketing junk food to kids:

–Media and entertainment companies should limit the licensing of characters to healthier foods and drinks.

–Schools should adopt meaningful nutrition standards for the foods that are sold there, and companies should cease all in-school promotion of products that don’t meet such standards.

–Companies that market food and drinks to children should expand public-outreach efforts to educate children about the importance of healthy eating and exercise, with particular attention aimed at minority populations that are disproportionately affected by childhood obesity.

The commission noted that its review came during a year in which food and beverage companies had committed to curtailing the marketing of unhealthy products. For example, it noted that 13 companies representing more than two-thirds of advertising spending directed toward children had pledged to not direct their ads to children under 12 — unless the foods met specific nutritional standards.

Animal Rights need to be included on all state ballots in 2008!!

Various people, and entities have long worked to help animals that are abused by farmers.  Topstockblog asks thoughtful readers to make sure Animal rights initiatives that promote a healthy economy are included in this years elections. Recent footage has brought ballot initiatives banning conditions of abuse in California including.  Below is an excerpt of important information taking from Yahoo news article “Farm animals law would require room to roam.” This fall, California voters will consider the most comprehensive farm animal rights law in the country, a measure that would ban cramped metal cages for egg-laying hens, metal gestation crates for pregnant sows and veal crates for calves — standard industry practices in which the animals are kept so confined that they can barely move.

The initiative follows more limited measures recently passed in several other states.

Earlier this year, the Colorado Legislature became the first in the nation to prohibit the use of gestation crates for pregnant pigs and veal crates for calves. In the last three years, Florida and Oregon voters have banned gestation crates and Arizona voters banned both gestation crates and veal crates.

A showdown between proponents and opponents of the California measure, initiated by the Humane Society of the United States, looms. While California’s pork and veal farming is small, the egg industry, the fifth largest in the country, is preparing an all-out campaign to defeat the measure.

The United Egg Producers and the Pacific Egg & Poultry Association say the measure would threaten the health of hens and eggs, since hens allowed to roam free might contract avian diseases from exposure to the outside or their own droppings. Moreover, the cost would be so prohibitive it would force an end to the egg industry in California as of 2015, when the initiative would go into effect, the group says.

“The measure jeopardizes our food safety and public health, putting us at greater risk for salmonella and avian flu outbreaks; cuts off consumer choice for safe, local, fresh and affordable California eggs; and drives up the cost of basic groceries at a time when Californians are already struggling with high gas, housing and other everyday living expenses,” said Julie Buckner, a spokeswoman for Californians for SAFE Food, a group created by the egg industry to oppose the initiative.

But proponents of cage-free hens are banking on momentum. The initiative boasts a long list of endorsements, from the California Democratic Party to the Union of Concerned Scientists.

Proponents also are bolstered by an independent report by The Pew Commission on Industrial Farm Animal Production. For humane reasons, the report recommended several changes in the way animals are raised for food in the United States, including the phasing out of so-called battery cages that keep the hens cramped.

———–

Dear Presidents George W. Bush, Hugo Chavez and Dmitry Medvedev,

   As a thoughtful citizen of the United States I send a warm message.   Sincere concern for past trickery used by business men to influence world leaders that has led to much suffering.  Much of this suffering was a necessary   In economic terms wars are profitable because of the high stakes of cooperation for the winner versus .  The United States government owes honest Russians’ an appology for secretly supplying what is know known as the Taliban in some cases funds for war in the Russian v.s. Afganistan war of the 1980’s. 

   The United States owes past communist leaders any unthoughtful actions that have caused suffering, and loss of life in your great nations.  I appoligize for policies designed to isolate and ensure failure of solcialist governments.

 The world owes George W. Bush an appology for policies that bring the world to the tipping point where legislative and enforceable policies can be implemented.   Helping people learn of our personal responsibility to help the world deal with problems.  To support policies that protect human rights, provide education, support careful judgement.   Principles of technolgy like doing more with less and reducing our environmental impact while allowing consequential benefits like increased free time. 

    Legislation can continue to support human benefit and recognize more intrinsic contributions by past contributions.  Good deeds shall not go unreckognized in the long run.    Education clearly benefits people around the world alike.  Yet, With technology one person can do the job of thousands and new accounting rules are needed to achieve this out come with out hurting those displaced by increases in productivity.  

   Account for those who have tresspassed against us through accounting.  Accounting can take make forms, and should reflect reasonable accounting.  For example a person who commits kills others in  is made by those who have trespassed against us.   Settle differences, and positively influence the future.   Educate, Influence, and share in the increased inovations of the past, and future.  Enforce and create world policies that support public, and private benefits.   Sccessful world economies are accountable, educated, entertaining, moral, secure, and  continue to adapt to meet challenges.  Moving forward with past world agreements, carefully restating those past world agreements established after wars from the past may be helpful.  Creating new agreements with much consideration to positively influence the world.  

  Intrinsic benefits of cooperation are accountable, measurable, and enforcable.  This is evident from past contributions of people from the past.      If enough people believe something it is acceptable.  Work towards policy that makes evolutionary sense with our growing understanding of responsibility and lifes beauty.  Public service is a good idea. 

   Many communities can increase the accountibility of budgets more effectively with community volunteers.  Keeping communites safe as margins decline across industries at different rates appropriately as technology allows society to do more with less.   Less effort, lower input, higher standards, and increased understanding.  Increased public service can come in many forms.  Savings for instance and protection of the environment serve to protect future generations.   Money can be uniformly pumped back into projects that increase environmental health, and sustainability  The loss of the world’s future can be measured more accurately with new legislations of cooperation and profits for increased sustainability and benefits of cooperation when carefully measured.  Serving to achieve the known benefits of accounting, careful communication, compromise, clean air, edcuation, good will, family, free choice, friendship, food, happiness, hard work, hope, peace, personal responsibility, realistic expectations, security, and understanding.  Legislation that Warms public sentiment would have a great impact on the future.  

        Our nations can pay profits in the form of rebates for savings of economies of scale, shared assets, wealth creation, capablities, sustainability,  long term benefit, minimum standards, and stated intrinsic values.  Intrinsic payments is a logical part of achievable innovation of capitalism.   The benefit to the future of savings achieved by cooperation can not be measured as currently structured.   in unrepairable environment damage, positive values, minimum standards, individual concern,  production costs,  unnecessary suffering, shipping, waste, , security, and happiness despite owners of oil reserves for not producing.  The United Nations can possible grow or new agencies can be created.  To work towards policies that keep the world safe, inspire happiness, and make life a little easier for all.  Innovation written with concern for all and the environment.  Accounting for all known mistakes and avoiding future problems.  Offering forgiveness.   Enforcing policies with human rights, respect, and shared benefit in mind to all people in the world.

 The United States along with strong people like yourselves hold great influence.   We share environmental concern, economic success, military security, business, and 100’s of millions of wonderful people.   Russia, United States, and Venezuela must work together to guarantee the bright future of our nations.  

    The United States is immediately in need of Russian military support in Afganistan.  Many lives will be saved with the benefit of Russia’s experience fighting in Afganistan.  We need to share world military responsibility.  If enough people believe something that supports evolution it can become fact.  A new supportive policy will help to build benefits delivered to society.   Restatement of old aggreements can be of great benefit to the future and present world environment.   Our cultures share so many common values.

Government letter on need for action to deal with dead zones in bodies of water

Dear Senator,
Dead zones in bodies of water around the world are multiplying and in some cases exponentialy this year, and must be addressed immediately.  Algae is a driving force of dead zones attacking the oxygen in the water, and consequently destroying the ecosystem that has thrived for thousands of years.  This is in part caused by the run off of sulfate found in fertilizers that Algae thrives in.  Sulfate runs off into bodies of water like the Missippi river and ends up in the Gulf of Mexico.  Simple treatment with microbes a naturally occurring organism that attacks algae. I believe can greatly reduce the dead zones and prevent the occurrence of dead zones in an environmentally friendly way.  Combined with carbon farming techniques used in Iowa can significantly reduce known negative consequences. I found a website that sells products to help with the cleaning bodies of water. http://pondsolutions.com/aquariumpharmaceuticals.htm#BioClean

Breaking news 7/21/2008 alleged Hezbollah Brigades Member – a suspected propaganda expert arrested in Iraq

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP’s earlier story is below.

BAGHDAD (AP) — The U.S. military in Iraq says it has arrested a suspected propaganda expert linked to a militant group that receives training from Iran.The military says it believes the man is a member of the Hezbollah Brigades, an Iraqi group it describes as “an offshoot of Iranian-trained special groups.” That’s how the U.S. refers to Shiite fighters defying a cease-fire order from radical cleric Muqtada al-Sadr.

A military statement says the man uploads to the Web images and video of attacks on Iraqi and U.S.-led forces. The information is allegedly used to raise money and other kinds of support from Iranian backers.

The suspect was arrested Monday in Baghdad.

____End Article found at Yahoo.

Topstockblog defines this action as an act of war by the government of Iran and related parties. This is an act of war against the Iraqi, and American people alike, additionally all other coalition partners. Hezbollah and Iran have crossed a line that can only be repaired with sincere actions.  Iran is engaging in stall tactics preparing for war.  These acts of terrorism should not be tolerated and justify severe military action.

Being a good person will help you keep your job. + Republican senator loses presidential campaign post for calling America a nation of whiners.

Being a nice person was the point that stands out in a John Tesh radio broadcast offering helpful tips on dieting, and life skill development.  Eating an apple 5 minutes before a meal or other healthy appetizer will help your diet results. A  regular planned snack at night was also shown to help your diet in a study.  

   John also talked about what empoyers and co-workers look for in other employees.  Likeability was high on the list.   If you do a good job; but, are a jerk.  You better change your tactics and try to be a nice person.  Employers and co-workers favor pleasant co- workers.  Even if they have less skills.   Make three friends at work, and you are almost certain to enjoy your job. John Tesh Radio Show.

“America is a bunch of whiners that puts the nation in a mental recesion. ” by Texas Senator  (R) Phil Gramm. Caused the senator to lose his job as campain co-manager for John Mcain presidential campaign. Reality of negative viewpoints, policy, and comments like these are worth observing. John Mcain is a bit out of touch with the world, and probably not capable of doing a good job. I hope that , and what they call the brain of the operation is a lack of touch with suffering of people around the world.

Blending languages could be good for the world economy

Mixing languages to form or use common words between languages is a good idea. Different languages like English, and Chinese could find common words to use for proper nouns, verbs, and the like. To be mixed. Spanish and English. French and English. If more people could communicate around the world. A reduction in both redundancy, waste, mistakes, and shared experience would help the wolrd achieve it’s economic, social, and environmental potential.
Connecting in the odd sort of way all languauges work. With careful attention to detail, and a blending of words like Pepsi. Proper nouns, verbs, and other important words can retain their sound, and word.
As the world works to find peace, and security for the future. Practical answers can be found.  Enhancing communication of people around the world with a common interest could create trillions of dollars of wealth, savings, and benefit around the world.  People should be able to communicate around the world.

Oil money will continue to flow west as predicted by George W. Bush

George W. Bush indirectly or directly went into Iraq to protect American business interests.  Iraq just opened bidding on oil production  for short term oil production.  Congratulations to the people of Iraq in moving the hard way towards good judgement as a nation. The money from Oil will help the Iraqi people financially.  Helping the people of Iraq do better financially and long term will help America make friends with Iraq in my opinion. The short run bid action is expected to give a major longer term advantage to big Western + European oil.  Iraq is already dealing with major corporations that are based in the United States.  Iraq is expected to double oil production by 2013. With Exxon, BP, and maybe even Haliburten getting a piece of the money along with over 35 others corporations from around the world.

In other news Iraq’i people are suing corporations who paid Iraq kickbacks, pharmaceutical company, and Australian exporter to get damages for millions of dollars paid in kick backs in the oil for food programs.  Violence is down in the middle east, and expected decline further as peaceful Iraqi people take control in a moderate way. 

I compare this to United States politicians being elected or fired by a responsible electoral voting public.   A voting United States public that will full fill it’s responsibility to live in a sustainable world that is responsible, and successful. Blogging on the Internet continues to fill voids where honest information can solve, and prevent real world problems

This could dent oil prices in the short run, and be very volatile over the remainder of the year responding to actual events in real time. This should build confidence in stocks; Iraqi currency, and the United States dollar. Weakness could materialize in all types of commodities as Iraq achieves mile stones in production, and an over supply of Oil could develop.

I do not give blind justice to leaders, and hope lawsuits force corporations to act thoughtfully towards people, and the environment.   Lawsuits are being filed against private contractors who tortured prisoned inmates inside Iraq. I support peace, careful communiction, sustainability, understanding, and the good judgement required to get there.

Without respect it will never be a very well functioning worlds.

With, Israel and Iran flexing their muscles in preparation for the oncoming war.  What do they really hope will come from the war without respect.  That is a dark answer of death.  Israel conducting a military show of force excercise over the Mediterranean Ocean.  Following war excercises by Iran early this year.  Including boarding a boat in the International waters without proper cause.   Launching long range torpedos to blow up practice targets.  The increased speed of Uranium Enrichment.   A little respect and understanding towards one another could go along way toward solving the problems.  

 ” Respect others and pray the respect is returned is my message of the day..to Israel and Iran in particular”

Food, conservation, and energy bill becomes law,

When it counts for passing laws that provide funding to modernize Food conservation policy. Along with provided sound principles in ways that make the United States strong. Congress and the Senate over rode a veto from George W. Bush to make the Food conservation, and energy bill law. Congress member Tom Harkin sent out details of the news in his latest newsletter release. The following message can be accessed at Tom Harkins website.

CONGRESS ENACTS FOOD, CONSERVATION AND ENERGY ACT OF 2008 OVER PRESIDENT’S VETO
It is with great pride that I note the new farm bill, The Food, Conservation and Energy Act – is now law. As Chairman of the House-Senate conference committee on the farm bill, I was honored to usher through a farm bill conference report on a strong, bipartisan basis, demonstrating support for core farm bill initiatives in farm income protection, conservation, energy, nutrition and rural development. This bill benefits every American and every Iowan – from our smallest towns to our biggest cities, urban and rural residents, farmers and non-farmers. The farm bill conference report passed the Senate by a vote of 81-15 and the House by 318-106.

Waste needs to be better managed around the world.

Waste should be reduced.

 Observation plays a large role in my belief that waste should be reduced.  Books, courses, experience, and research all influence my view point.  For most people problems of waste are of little importance and can be pushed to the sides.   Waste of of food, natural resources, and garbage can be reduced more.  Environmental damage needs to be reduced by human impact.  is the biproduct of humans being put on the side for someone else to deal with.  Alot of waste goes on.  Cool people don’t waste all the time.   Dealing with waste problems early is a good idea in my opinion.   Every one has a different view point.    On the fringes of the worlds serious waste problems should be dealt with.  Every one has their role to play in reducing waste.

Congress member Robert Wexler from Florida is dedicated to ending political and economic corruption in the United States government with strong statements.

Congress man Robert Wexler speaks out to stop the war in Iraq.
Wexler has a whole campaign of searching for the truth, and holding government accountable for decisions. Mr. Wexler calls out lies told about the Iraq war. Wexler seeks sound solutions for the future. I give the congressman from Florida much credit. Mr. Wexler has fought to make polluters pay in Florida, and protect the environment. Mr. Wexler takes strong stances against corruption in government, and the private sector.

Check Robert Wexler at congress member Robert Wexler website for his re-election campaign. the Democratic party, and support his efforts to end the war.

Ten year peace agreement in the Middle East bad idea between Israel and Hamas

   Ten year peace agreements between Israel and Hamas is a bad idea in my opinion.   Any aggreement that is not ever ending as intended.  Is a waste of time.   Ten years is worthless than a good fight now.  I morrally oppose war; but, approve of a war for ultimate victory if peace can not be achieved looking far into the future. Moderate viewpoints and understanding of those with different view points all have to do with a good future. Per se a good direction to move in. I read a proposal that ends the conflict reasonable between Israel and Palestine.

   We are all humans of different values, wants, needs, thoughts, sizes and shades.  As such we should respect these differences. Biodiversity offers much hope to the future in meeting all unforeseen needs and contributions of others.
Israel has contributed great to both the well being of the world and rath of hate as religous forces have battled for centuries in an attempt to dominate societies. All the failure of violence to bring peace should be learned from and avoided in the future with acceptance of other cultures. With respect for human and property boundaries. Life has much beauty to be shared and worked for with careful decisions.  All people have value and need to be respected as such. Equally the environment is a concern.  All balanced
Humans can learn from the past.  Much of the past agreementslike the United Nations and modern world governments holds the answers learned from experience.  We have the structure and need compromise to work out the differences.  The great wealth of Oil in the middle east has led to a never ending fight.   The spreading of technology, health care, food, shelter, and happiness need to be  the targets of all people.  I call on all religious preachers, practices, and non applicable peaceful parties to cooperate with good will.one another.  To share earned efficiencies and apply considerate minimum goals to make the most of the world.  Deliver jobs, housing, responsibility, religious freedom, careful boundaries, sustainable trade, and environmentally friendly goals.

Topstockblog wants to be the third economic prophet to the modern world

  Tostockblog is here to share a peaceful, accepting , understanding, and respectful message.  People of the world need to be safe to maintain a secure, fair, happy, productive, and largely successful world .   Trade, and debts founded in more than a pursuit of profits.  

    Taxes should be lowered over time.  High taxes encourage fraud and non-payment of taxes.  Taxes pay debts; not, create free money for debt holders.  Tax on consumption is part of resolving material differences for wealth.  Wealth is something in the heart and mind.  Too much greed leads people to waste, and fear ones neighbors.   Taxes should occur with the function of maintaining services, and a slight deficit to target inflation.   Careful planning by the people.  Addressing individual needs of those that do not contribute to society may be contrary to profits; but, is cleary the productive path to protecting boundaries. 

    Education can and should be used as a measure of a societies ability to meet needs.  People will be able to work hard, contribute to society, protect the future, and provide for their families.   Corn should not be used for oil. Drugs should be taxed, and discouraged.   Humans have a right to drink and use drugs to meet needs.  Some people are always going to use drugs to the extent this can not and is not a mission of god to control drug users should not be prosecuted, and drug sellers should be heavily taxed. Some people enjoy drugs.  Helping and encouraging people is the logical evolution of time.
Values of supporting neighbors, finding common ground, protecting boundaries, and meeting needs are the driving forces behind trade.  Dishonesty and inappropriate influence are disruptive forces that threaten the world we live in. 
   Some profit is ok.  Inflation is better than deflation? Maybe not, I actually found that under doing more with less principles goods would cost less, and we would be able to meet more needs. Both thoughts could be logically argued for with making accounts for realities as understood.
      Targets and honest pursuits of the targets seems to be effective in helping to balance risks to the economy.  is key keeping people knowledgeable, and on board with the expectation that will be likely be near target.  With inflation, deficit spending is in part erased with time made up by a broad  nu number of realities. Most notable doing more with less resources at the foundation of my prophecy of intelligent comment to share with the world.  

    Careful communication, clear goals,  and a participant friendly economy.  he world does not respond aggressively enough for human boundaries.  Far worse than anything prescribed by books, people, or imagination.  
        The world has enough resources to meet reasonable needs and wants of all people.  It is the lack of congruency, and inability to reconcile the differences.   We all have different wants.  With the removal of harsh judgements on each other is reasonable.   We must learn from the past, and respond our understanding to the right direction with gained knowledge.   People should not be discouraged to detach from others.  Population management is part of sharing a planet. We need to be careful as humans.  More respectful of cows.   Cooks earn their money in making food taste better.  We all need to earn are place when allowed opportunities to contribute presents itself.  To be responsibile for the future as humans.  

  Muslims were promised a third prophet of foreign decent.   Muhammad called for a power to rise up to lead the Muslim people to salvation.   A christian is supposed to rise up and show himself to the people as a saint.  Topstockblog rose up, and selflessly gave his life Human boundaries and inspiration is a start to finding the third prophet.    I think the answers are in science, reasonable human rights, and application of current agreements of international agreements.  A foreigner is something very distinct from Muslim culture in my opinion.  Someone who is peaceful and all seeing.  Someone who meets the needs of the people.

    No more violations of human rights. To best deal with threats of violations of boundaries of all kinds. An understanding of all the existing threats need to be more clearly understood.  Do not let greed be your leader.   Society should question how some one acquires their wealth. To the extent lawyers, and doctors can take large sums of money from the public and high level procedures are not accessible to many that would like to learn more should be questioned.   More appreciation, communication, education, free time, honesty, personal responsibility, security, and uderstaning is the answer.  The answer to  under doing more with less principles. 
   A reasonable common enemy for people should be human suffering and environmental damage.  
Corporations could focus on their intrinsic value if enough people are ready to recognized such.   More  A value can be attributed to a long term ability to add value to society when measured for sustainability, happiness, respect for all,   a targeted inflation an inflation rate that targets for all defiict spending, over accumulation of wealth, and changes in the worlds economies.  God must be allowed to be viewed by others as they believe for ever.

          Humans can not rule over one another with out clear boundaries.   The United States has a strong framework for success.   Provided appropriate adjustments are made to account for human needs domestic and abroad.  Focusing on the common enemy of environmental concerns is good.  The common enemy of the world is dishonesty, homelessness, hunger, sadness, those who promote violence, human rights violations, long term threats, and a positive community energy.  Addressing unrational accumulation of assets in a confined space only makes sense to a point.  Crossing this point of greed makes accumulation of wealth destructive.   Particularly with short falls of greed and human error ineffectively accounted for.  Through careful judgement we can improve the function of society, and human benefit delivered to people.   People should be allowed to study educational opportunities with the benefit of the entire population in mind.  People all want different things.  It is important for the government led by the people to fulfill potential of society.   The use of environmentally friendly solutions should be promoted with rapid support and careful judgement to account for past mistakes.   Much environmental pollutants have been released through war and violence.

     Banks needs to function regardless of profit.  In fact, banks pursuit of profit leaves 15% of homes currently unoccupied because of foreclosures.   to deliver community ownership thought housing and business needs.  Accounting for the intrinsic value of happiness and To study religion as they and their family choose to do so.  Not to shun others for religious differences.   

    Security of nations can be met by fullfilling basic needs.  In developed nations surplussGovernment debt is ok if all nations work together.   Armies of all nations could further merge together.     The current frame work of the United Nations must be expanded, and better regulated for moral development.

Time to throw out the profit model and use a model of benefit. The world needs to come together to maximize efficiencies of delivery of benefits to society. By all standard measures of benefit, stored benefit,and consideration for others

Humans can act in a number of different ways.  So it should not surprise other people and cultures that we may disagree on a wide range of subjects.   Honest and rapid trade with benefit is in all peoples interest.   We drive each other crazy in the pursuit of our agenda’s.  Sharing of resources, happiness, and overall human benefit should be the goal of the world. Profit motive did alot to advance the benefits to the world.  Governments have done a lot to fill in the gaps.  Religious groups and people  give with concern for gods children.  Most groups have met most standards of deceny most of the time.    Communism has had limited success.  People and governments could not bridge the gap between trade.  Countries have been isolated because of the government being led by communist movements of previous generations.  Now abandoned by most nations because trade is to vital to any nations success. I watched some budgeting projections on CNBC.  The model showed no changes in human nature.    Reduction of  War is important to protect infrastructure, and preserve natural resources.   Resources  could become more isolated inappropriately in the future with out honest planning.  Delivering goods wastefully and inappropriately.  We all serve to meet our own profit motives per the profit model.  People will not act in a pure capitalist system without the profit motive. Unless profit is to  be gained in theory.  Operates very differently in reality.  Millions of people help each other, and conversely are scared of each other.   Millions of people adapt well to the conditions of a profit model; but, millions of others are left with needs unfulfilled.  I personally think with careful consideration that people could benefit more appropriately.  

 I really tried to keep this profit model off of the website about stocks.  It is important for myself to stay focussed on stocks; but, the differences of my life are shared. I can buy UNH even though I believe the corporation will act in the future to deny benefits to others and look to accumulate profits at any cost that falls with in what the law permits.  I should have looked worst of breed for offenders like HWAY they are loosing contracts.  I have surgery on march 7th for a couple of hernias from falling off a roof.  Governments paying the bill because I am poor.  I have a hard time wondering why I should not give up.  The market is my best answer to making some money; but, the market is determined to driving people crazy; assuming wrongly the best profit model it can create.  I share a better way for people to live. 

1. Reduce barriers between countries

2. Pay all people to not consume.  Motivating people to consume may have had a net benefit early on; but, now it can turn the opposite way with rising debts.

3. Those with resources should use those resources with a stated benefit of concern for others. i.e. the United States should meet the worlds need for food; not, waste it turning to ethanol.   Those with natural resources should use those resources not accumulate wealth; but, to help people.   There will be winners and losers because we may be in a zero sum game.  Meaning for every winner their is a loser.   Wipe out all the debts and cuts rates functionally on expected returns.  The bond market is correctly predicted a default on debt, and transactions have seized up.  Government should create a pool of money for sharing benefit with each other.  Governments are very devisive when they act alone.

6.  People should be concerned with sustainable peace

7.  Shared policing responsibility around the world.   People should be allowed to exist with respected boundaries, compromise, unstanding of differences, and faith of common ground.

8. Target is happiness

9.  Reduce population of humans to a point that encourages people to see all people as friends.

10. Restate the rules frequently and with purpose of helping each other.

11. Eliminate accumulation of debts

12. Build a path of functioning rather than a path of uncertainty

13. Good nature should be more defined

14. Wars should not be fought.

15.  People should not steal

16.  People should care about each other

17.  The world should move to meet future needs with a collection method to use benefitsto elliminate Profit pools are collected by taxes and redistribution, bank accounts, real property, stocks, bonds, and currency.  WE should use current profit pools to meet these needs.

18.  The government needs to take further

19.  Trade is good.

Going to have to work on the rest of the details.  Just my thoghts that keep me distracted from the market.

People stop the war in Iraq through communication. The world permanent peace careful planning.

The war is still waging in Iraq, and peace should be. 5/09/2008

Basic standards of education and care.  Funded for by acievement  of boundaries, safety,population management, added value in security, and good will.

I still believe Iraq is on the brink of peace with hard work.  Religous powers need to be checked to human rights.  The killing of innocent women for dressing like westerners will not bring peace.  Humans have rights to food, shelter, free will, boundaries, and happiness.  Iraq needs to pay for the war with future revenue.  Continuing to use radioactive fuel in the region is better spent conserving energy than waging war.  The United States, and Russia Military should be able to have some input into the flow, and construction of any nuclear facility.  Who would of guessed the Sunnis could be part of the peace.  We are a few religous blocks short of a full call for peace.  Make it ever lasting by promoting education, sustainability, consideration for good will, and careful communication.

(2/20/2008)

Iraq needs peace, and hope. Top stock blog calls Peace beginning Thursday February 21, 2008.  The war is long and drawn out with everyone suffering from its causes. We need a final push to end the war.  A moment to catch our breath and realize we can find permanent peace through careful planning. War is not the way.  The population of the world needs to be reduced over time through planning.  Woman and Men alike must be treated with respect.  Basic standards of care and human rights can be achieved.  No money shall be given free. We need to add value and achieved stated benefits for the good of the world.  The world can ask hard questions during peace.  The cease fire with cleric Muqtada al-Sadr must be moved forward to permanent peace.  Humans can fight till end as would any person forced to.  I commit myself to peace and not using weapons.  Those who have engaged in the fight or are considering joining the fight need to commit themselves to peace.  America has crossed a boundary again into war on foreign soil.  As an American I am stepping up and saying no more wars. I am very sorry for the war.  I was against the war in the beginning.  Appologizes are helpful.   The power of the people can manage its demands fairly through careful planning.  Education is something that is low on consumption and high value of return for investment dollars. Educated people can learn about shared benefits in the future.  Words of peace.  We need to understand we should look at the suffering of others with concern. equally We can forgive and find peace, planning, and understanding. I ask all of the worlds’ people to communicate for peace.  We need to talk frequently and friendly.  People can communicate to fill needs.  We can make decisions that help others and benefit from the mutual common interests including peace.  People can make good decisions.   Use your religious ties to reach out to religious contacts, and forge new religious contacts to bring an end to this war imediatlely.  Ask religious leaders to reach out for a permanent peace, and understanding of each other.   Most people involved in the conflict believe it is gods will that brings the war.   So, it must be gods will for the war to stop. I have included excerpts from blogs I found showing the hell that Iraq has suffered through as a direct consequence of the war.****  the following is content  I found on the internet****

http://afamilyinbaghdad.blogspot.com/The Iraqis are angry, asking- where is the money of the Iraqi oil? Why aren’t the expanses of treating the Iraqi families here be covered by a special fund financed by the Iraqi oil sales? Why wouldn’t the Iraqi families be given food rations covered by a special fund financed by the Iraqi oil sales?
By God I don’t know what to say; where is the Iraqi oil money going? To settle the depts of Saddam Hussein’s wars against Iran and Kuwait?
Is this the justice and wisdom of the International Community, led by President Bush and his administration? The Iraqis are dying of hunger, poverty, and illness inside Iraq and outside, while their oil money is being plundered to be put in banks, in the personal accounts of the thieves of the New Iraq, for the American oil companies, or other satiated, gorged investors?
It seems there is no longer any justice or mercy in this world, dominated by plunder, theft, and injustice. Who stands for the poor?
By God, I don’t know}
 {Then we went to Syria, and that was the first time I met with Iraqi families there…
The conditions of the Iraqis in Syria are indescribable…
The international organization’s work there is limited and restricted, compared to the wide space they have in Jordan, in spite of some families’ complaints because of the slowness and injustice of the given aid, but at least here there are some doors which the poor Iraqi family can knock upon in the hope that one of these doors might open to them…but in Syria, all doors are almost closed….
All my life I have never seen poverty like I saw among the Iraqis in Syria… widows or women who lost their sons because of criminal gangs and militias that entered Iraq after the occupation, and killed all Iraqis alike… whenever I met a woman who told her story while crying, I cried with her, at her situation, at the conditions of the sad Iraq, and at what happened to it; the destruction, the shredding. And when the women all gathered and we heard their stories with a member of the American delegation, I had my friend with me; Selma; a Turkish-American, a Muslim… I asked the women, with sorrow- but I had to ask the silly question: Are you Sunnies? Shia’ats?
It turned out they were a mixture of both sides…
This woman was a Sunnie; they threatened her and killed her son…and this is a Shia’at; threatened, and her husband was killed…
There is no difference; the Sunnies and the Shia’ats were displaced from Iraq to live side by side in exile, waiting for that who would pity them, give them a charity of food rations, a blanket, or a heater because winter is near, await some humanitarian organization to take care of their disabled children, or afflicted with cancer as a result of the depleted Uranium, with which the Iraqi environment is contaminated, since the Kuwait war in 1991, then the occupation war in 2003.
And…all is in God’s will…..
http://riverbendblog.blogspot.com/ Humanitarian organizations are warning that three Iraqi women are to be executed next month. The women are Wassan Talib, Zainab Fadhil and Liqa Omar Muhammad. They are being accused of ‘terrorism’, i.e. having ties to the Iraqi resistance. It could mean they are relatives of people suspected of being in the resistance. Or it could mean they were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. One of them gave birth in the prison. I wonder what kind of torture they’ve endured. Let no one say Iraqi women didn’t get at least SOME equality under the American occupation- we are now equally as likely to get executed. And yet, as the situation continues to deteriorate both for Iraqis inside and outside of Iraq, and for Americans inside Iraq, Americans in America are still debating on the state of the war and occupation- are they winning or losing? Is it better or worse. The Rape of Sabrine…It takes a lot to get the energy and resolution to blog lately. I guess it’s mainly because just thinking about the state of Iraq leaves me drained and depressed. But I had to write tonight.

As I write this, Oprah is on Channel 4 (one of the MBC channels we get on Nilesat), showing Americans how to get out of debt. Her guest speaker is telling a studio full of American women who seem to have over-shopped that they could probably do with fewer designer products. As they talk about increasing incomes and fortunes, Sabrine Al-Janabi, a young Iraqi woman, is on Al Jazeera telling how Iraqi security forces abducted her from her home and raped her. You can only see her eyes, her voice is hoarse and it keeps breaking as she speaks. In the end she tells the reporter that she can’t talk about it anymore and she covers her eyes with shame.

She might just be the bravest Iraqi woman ever. Everyone knows American forces and Iraqi security forces are raping women (and men), but this is possibly the first woman who publicly comes out and tells about it using her actual name. Hearing her tell her story physically makes my heart ache. Some people will call her a liar. Others (including pro-war Iraqis) will call her a prostitute- shame on you in advance.

I wonder what excuse they used when they took her. It’s most likely she’s one of the thousands of people they round up under the general headline of ‘terrorist suspect’. She might have been one of those subtitles you read on CNN or BBC or Arabiya, “13 insurgents captured by Iraqi security forces.” The men who raped her are those same security forces Bush and Condi are so proud of- you know- the ones the Americans trained. It’s a chapter right out of the book that documents American occupation in Iraq: the chapter that will tell the story of 14-year-old Abeer who was raped, killed and burned with her little sister and parents.  ( Bagdad Burning )// American Hostages…It was around the 10th or 11th of April, 2003. There had been no electricity in our area since the last days of March. The water was also cut off and most Iraqis still didn’t have generators. We spent the days- and nights- listening to American and British war planes, listening for the tanks as they invaded the city, and praying. We also tried desperately to follow the news.

The state-controlled Iraqi channels had, seemingly, ceased to exist. Transmission had been bad since the war began- sometimes, we’d be able to access the channel clearly, and at other times, it was only a fuzzy blur of faces and scratchy national anthems. The official Iraqi radio station was no better- sometimes it seemed like they were transmitting from Mars- it was so far away. When we did get it clearly, none of it made sense: Sahhaf, the Minister of Information, would say, “There are no tanks in Baghdad!” and yet, explosions and the carcasses of burnt up cars with families still inside, said otherwise.

What direction will the world take? Lifes economics

 Is the glass half full or half empty?  Hard questions are important to ask each other.   “Have no fear for no one can stop the time.” Bob Marley Redemption songs.   “People can go in any direction they want to.”  Topstockblog. 

Corporations  may have been created to make profits.  They do deliver enormous benefits to the world.  A number of values and standards have been accounted for as society has demanded higher standards for people and the environment.   Do we have to continue to look at places we can go wrong? Yes.  Should we just let corporations make the rules? No.  History tells us that great mistakes can be made with out very careful consideration of our actions and those of others.  We should look for warely  for potential Trojan horses.   The war in Iraq led by George Bush Junior and religious fanatics have produced a hell on earth for so many people living in fear and losing their lives.  Society can fix and best manage drawbacks with careful communication, trading opportuities, and consideration.   Delivering the maximum benefit of services to people when they add value.   People are best served when compensated for looking to the future.  We have some compensations in place.  We can add further incentives to decrease U.S consumption and help future generations of people. Taxes, Health care and banking are places society can lower costs and boost long term functioning.   Citizens who choose to consume less could be compensated with  tax relief, debt relief, and health care.  Is this why checks of welfare were made to poor people in the United States to reduce consumption while maintaining basic needs of people?  Welfare became seen and abused by the masses.  People in the United States now have children for money they will recieve.  We should motivate the least fortunate to not have children rather have more children worstening the effects on society.   Further communication and understanding of purpose on earth is needed to share benefits most appropriately.   We can reduce consumption by increases in technology, and a public with higher moral standards of heaven on earth.    We currently save money in banks, physical property, and intellectual property.  We can boost benefits for increases in education to meet challenges of the future and present most appropriately.   Some save massive amounts and yet others consume massive amounts with no concern for others.  Are they really that much better than the those that save or the less fortunate?  I think corporations could adopt more regulations.  Their will always be winners in losers in life.  It is a perception or reality of force that leads us to reality.  We should value what we leave for future generations.  Corporations can not make endless profits in a confined space with limited resources available?   The economy is best served with a long term out look trying to account for draw backs.   We can build an economic system that best meets peoples needs.   We have had a strongest functioning economy defined by any period of time.  The world needs to work closely together to share common ground.  We need to communicate thoroughly and repeatedily to meet the standards of the world while looking to protecting the planet for the future. Many competing economic systems have been used thought out the history of man.  Many of them with a large warring component.  We want to stay away from war and protect all people from violence.   We can offer minimum standards to the world.  Millions of people in the world live in a growing dangerous world.   This situation is best managed with considerable thought, and much communication.  Shared concern.    We can manage the number of people on the earth and share benefits with rules better than the current system.  I estimate the world can sustain around 2 billion people if all people received minimum standards we have grown accustomed to in the United State.  We should compensate those who choose not to have children to protect the future.  Growing together and communication can greatly reduce violence.    If   humans can go in so many different directions.  Then why are so few of them the right?

UNH health care.

(Update 7/23/08 ) – UNH has weathered most of the fruad charges against it, and continues to pay out as little as possible to health care members. Profit margins should be boosted by greed, and inappropriate influence of health care corporations into elections. Society is not speaking up, and I imagine UNH as a possible long trade if congress people do not demand better coverage, and higher reimbursement rates. Bullish as a trade on any weakness further weakness. I would prefer to be long into UNH near term earnings anouncements. ) end update —
( 02/25/2008) UNH has systematically defrauded it customers and the ultimatley the people of the United States.  UNH should not be allowed to focus on isolated customers to over charge them. New York Attorney general goes after UNH after six month probe.  http://www.marketwatch.com/News/Story/Story.aspx?guid=%7b889EB25E-F08F-49AC-AA67-1465E44B9300%  7d&siteid=yhoo&dist=yhoo    

   Proper utlization of human resources meaning active education and cooperation combined with technology and infrastructure in place without abusive elements would deliver the most efficient medical treatment care system. 

   Michael Moore has done a film on his thoughts about the inappropriate profiteering health insurance corporations carry out. In my opinion they have abused their trust when patient recieved care outside of the network or avoided treatment becuase of fear of costs.   Society can provide honest available medical care, and can work with other nations to share benefits.   I was recently reading some bible passages online trying to learn more about the contents.   I take from all the births and human relations in the book over generations we all have shared interest past and future.  Gods is with all of us and in everything. 

– Cramer likes UNH and see’s the stock as incredible cheap, I see investors putting money to work in UNH.  Stock could trade higher )

( update 10 am. On the UNH trade I should try to focus on my timing better.  I gave it a shot.  Still have about 8 hours for mr. market to wake up and price this stock lower because the Government should be able to crush the profit the one thing UNH had going for it the manipulation of health care costs.   I entered the trade when the stock was trading jut over $46.  I had seen the lower print and the fraud charges.  Then I pulled the trigger at .35 cent 2/15/08 45 puts in the heat of the moment yesterday. I closed out the positions It was  an out of the money trade trying to hit a home run.  Good chance after reading about it as a manipulation trade ahead of the news.  Big money stands to hedge the stock here while it continually repositions.  It is an election year.  The march 45’s look tempting.  

 entertainments purposes only, 

A bible passage –  

“Thus the total number of generations from Abraham to David is fourteen generations; from David to the Babylonian exile, fourteen generations; from the Babylonian exile to the Messiah, fourteen generations. 5 ”  Mathew summary,

18
6 Now this is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about. When his mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, 7 but before they lived together, she was found with child through the holy Spirit.
19
Joseph her husband, since he was a righteous man, 8 yet unwilling to expose her to shame, decided to divorce her quietly.
20
Such was his intention when, behold, the angel of the Lord 9 appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary your wife into your home. For it is through the holy Spirit that this child has been conceived in her.
21
She will bear a son and you are to name him Jesus, 10 because he will save his people from their sins.”
22
All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet:
23
11 “Behold, the virgin shall be with child and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel,” which means “God is with us.”
24
When Joseph awoke, he did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took his wife into his home.
25
He had no relations with her until she bore a son, 12 and he named him Jesus

Population management key to economic success of the world

Population management is important to ensure resources are not overly utilized, wasted, and shared inefficiently.  Population management is key to ensure growth of benefits exceeds degredation of resources.  The world needs to live with boundaries, morals, and reasonable space for errors. I have attached a human welfare website that covers population issues around the world.  Regret-able the website went out of business recently because it did not sustain.  We all share a similar experience of not being able to sustain without the support of each other.  

Population Issues

It took all of human history until 1830 for world population to reach one billion. The second billion was achieved in 100 years, the third billion in 30 years, the fourth billion in 15 years, and the fifth billion in only 12 years. In 2005, world population exceed 6.5 billion people, growing by nearly 80 million per year with virtually all of the growth taking place in the poorest countries in the world, where population already strains economies, environments and social services.Rapid population growth causes or exacerbates poverty, hunger, environmental degradation, economic stagnation, resource depletion, disease and illiteracy – a surefire formula for global insecurity.

Population and Climate Change
[updated June 2007]
Climate change is perhaps the most crucial environmental challenge of this century. Eleven of the world’s 12 highest annual global temperatures on record have occurred since 1995, leading many of the world’s top scientists and environmentalists to conclude that global warming has begun in earnest.While a great deal of attention has been paid to reducing emissions responsible for global warming, there has been far less focus on the role of population growth in climate change.

Population pressures are not the sole cause of global warming, but exacerbate ecological degradation. Providing effective voluntary family planning to the tens of millions of women worldwild who lack access to affordable reproductive health services would be a significant step towards reducing human impact on areas left vulnerable by climate change.

Population and the Environment
[updated May 2006]
Human needs are growing rapidly. We want more food, more cars, more fuel, and more buildings…more of everything and more than ever before. As our numbers, needs and desires grow, so do our demands and our impact on the environment.

Population and Consumption
[updated April 2006]
Our growing numbers – now 6.5 billion and expected to grow to 9.1 billion by 2050 – require more space, more food and more resources. There are more of us consuming more, a pattern leading to the depletion of the world’s limited natural resources. But consumption is more than just a game of numbers. It is also a function of lifestyle choices and political, economic and social structures.

Family Planning
What is Family Planning?
[updated August 2007]
Family planning services allow women and couples to plan the number and spacing of their children. These services include information about and the provision of modern methods of contraception, as well as “natural family planning” information. Abortion is not a method of family planning; in most cases it is the result of a lack of access to family planning services

Gender
Men and Maternal Health: Sharing the Burden, Sharing the Benefits
[updated July 2007]
Every minute, a woman dies of pregnancy-related causes throughout the world. For every woman who dies, more than 20 others suffer pregnancy-related illness or infection. Because women bear the greatest burden of pregnancy-related and reproductive ill-health, it is easy to take the myopic approach that population programs are women’s programs.

The Connection Between Family Planning and Gender-Based Violence
[updated October 2006]
Gender-based violence (GBV) is one of the most persistent and pervasive forms of human rights abuses in the world. In the tragic and complex cycle of violence, inequality, and exploitation, GBV is increasingly recognized as an important action point on the path toward a more just and sustainable world. Specifically, eliminating GBV contributes to efforts to empower women to determine the spacing and number of their children.

Population and Health
[updated April 2006]
The story of population is also the story of women’s reproductive healthcare and family planning. Women and men who have access to family planning have the information, education and means to exercise their human right to choose the number and spacing of their children. Unfortunately, some 350 million women lack either the information or the means to obtain adequate voluntary family planning. Increased access to family planning gives couples greater control over fertility and often results in smaller family sizes and slower population growth rates.

U.S. International Population Assistance
[updated August 2007]
In the 1960s, the United States pioneered new national and international initiatives to meet the challenges of a rapidly growing population. The US understood both the dire need for and tremendous potential of international population assistance, based on the principles of volunteerism and informed choice, to achieve a better quality of life for women, children and families worldwide and to promote environmental sustanability and diversity.While population and family planning remains a cornerstone of US global health and foreign assistance policy, ongoing and contentious debate about the scope and nature of the programs resulted in severe restrictions to US bilateral and multilateral assistance.

Population and Poverty Alleviation
[updated May 2007]
Poverty is a significant factor in environmental degradation, malnourishment, illiteracy and maternal and infant mortality. Population programs – including voluntary family planning and child survival programs – are an important part of poverty reduction efforts.”The Millennium Development Goals, particularly the eradication of extreme poverty and hunger, cannot be achieved if questions of population and reproductive health are not squarely addressed. And that means stronger efforts to promote women’s
rights, and greater investment in education and health, including reproductive health and family planning.”

The U.S. Government has hailed Uganda as the showcase success story of its Abstinence, Be faithful, and correct and consistent Condom use (ABC) AIDS prevention strategy. Posting impressive declines in HIV prevalence across the board, Uganda appeared to be on the path to eradication. That claim, however, was premature, and in the past few years, HIV infection rates have been steadily increasing.

As the largest population of people under 25 years of age enters its reproductive years, we must increase investments in reproductive health, family planning and education programs. Resources spent on these efforts now will pay off exponentially with tangible results in human capital. A woman delays childbirth to go to school. A mother is able to focus on her child’s health rather than her own. The next generation of youth is in balance with economic growth and environmental limitations. These achievements, more than any weapon, will bring us closer to the long-term, global security we seek and so ardently believe is possible.

1. Forces people to work together to find solutions

2.  Enforces accounting standards  

3.  Looks to the past to find mistakes

4.  Less consumption is good for sustainability

5.  It forces weak competition out of business

6.  Takes uncollectable debt out of the economy

7. Brings government intervention

Standards I am looking for in a new president and all people elected to office

Here is a list of standards I hope our new president and all elected officials will try to achieve.  Its more important to find a sustainable, and creative capitalist society with functioning markets than some sort of Feudal society with a non functioning market

Listen to all people

Represent all people

Work to achieve a clean water supply for the world going forward 

Work to ensure everyone in the world has food and shelter

Look to find common ground with all nations

Regulate all markets and enforce minimum standards that provide moral benefits

Look at the need to limit world population growth

Be honest and fair with everyone

Work hard with the interest of all people in mind

Try to find peace and security for all people

Enforce estate taxes and offer early settlement of debts to reduce disruptions to the economy  and the stock market

Use higher and lower tax rates to achieve the most sustainable society

Work more with other nations to maximize world welfare and achievement of minimum standards

Create government partnerships with corporations to be able to reduce tax rates, eliminate debts, and reduce impact of business cycles https://topstockblog.wordpress.com/2008/01/23/lower-taxes-and-government-partnerships-with-corporations-and-people-best-for-economy-funded-with-tax-credits/

Advocate and encourage public trading markets with lower taxes

 Discourage isolation and concentration of capital with higher taxes on excess wealth

Cut taxes funded with shared passive owner ship in large corporations

Act morally

Restate world goals of freedom  and respect for all

Expand the educational achievements and opportunities available to all people

Be considerate and understanding to the diverse needs of all people

Expand health care access to all people by expanding educated professionals

Invest heavily in renewable resources  to ensure affordable and available energy for all people

Prepare for the future

I think John McCain is too inflexible and committed to violence to bring lasting peace.  Romney is too greedy.  I oppose all war and realize terrorists are trying to achieve chaos through world wide human suffering, and wars waste natural resources.  I like that Barrack Obama  is the only candidate who voted against the Iraq war; but, is not afraid to change his opinion with changing understanding of reality.  I like that Barrack wants to help the middle class and less fortunate in our society.  I like that Barrack has not excepted any money from special interest groups.  I do not like that Barrack has been very unclear or lacks the ability to state how he will achieve his goals.  Hillary Clinton speaks of achieving similar solution in the future.  I don’t think rich or poor people of the world want to live in a morally unsound world that fails to manage for the future. Taxing excess profits at higher rates is a realistic solution to paying for past mistakes and short falls of tax collections to pay for are consumption.  Pure capitalism states that humans are better dealt with by ignoring their needs.  This will prove to be a disastorous situation if the world races irresponsible to over consume, no population constraints, and a lack of focus on minimizing our actions.  The government needs to bridge the gaps of what capitalism has created and where it falls short of desirable results.    Sharing world education, forgiveness, managing world populations, security, trade, and minimum standards for the world are key components of achieving a peaceful future.   I feel Hillary and Bill are most capable of finding common ground.  I would most trust a woman (Hillary Clinton)  guided by a man (Bill Clinton) to find the most rational solutions.  Barrack may be young and untested; but, ultimately be best for the nation.   The future will bring reality as we have guided it. The stock markets long term function is only in doubt with politics as usual.

Market trading up nicely, lol

The market has continued to sell off rallies as of late.  Is this time different?  Is the market a forward looking indicator seeing a brighter future? To dat the market has set lower lows…I think it’s a stock pickers market, and values of different assets need to be adjusted.    Lets see if the rally continues late in the day or fails.   I think stocks are over valued because of  buy outs, and people paying too much for earnings.   I thinnk sustainability and responsibility would be better served if stocks trade lower from here.  The system needs to make adjustments that are best taken care of in a recession.    Bond holders should get paid corporate assets sooner than latter if I am right.  The math has to make sense. Math can not be manipulated.

I am short COF (more than I should be) and long CFC, BA.    I added to my short as the market traded higher on COF.  The company is issuing new credit to grow credit base as people’s deliquencies increase and long term prospects are challenged.  This sure is a competive market with things being repriced every day.   Google after hours I hope will send the market lower; but, some people are buying the calls.  Too much violence in the world, and dishonesty for markets to trade higher in my opinion.   I am hoping foreign investors will sell.  Jobless claims reach post Katrina levels – http://www.seekingalpha.com/article/62506-jobless-claims-reach-post-katrina-levels.    The military is unprepared for a military strike, and their all standing in one place.  We need to start building military bases here, and bring security to all corners of the United States.  BA should do well in any environment.  The world will want lots of carbon fiber plaines  787’s scheduled deliveries starting in 2009.   Government needs to fill the populations needs beyond what business is capable of doing in Bill Gross’s mind.   http://seekingalpha.com/article/62070-bill-gross-stimulate-government-spending-not-consumption need to meet the needs of people around the world. Take a look how bad things could get http://www.populationinstitute.org/newsroom/population-news/?id=82   Government needs to get creative to fix this big debt, reduce environmental damage, and create a positive environment for people to live in.  I think voluntary estate planning to collect death benefits early, and not disruptively to reconcile debts would be very helpful.  Also, government taking small percentage stakes in large corporations to be able to reduce tax rates would also stimulate real growth.  Simple minimum standards of people are not being met around the world.  This makes it more diffucult for people to be comfortable.   Transaction numbers are decreasing.   

Kramer was overly bullish last night. http://madmoneyrecap.com/daily_recap_openingsegment_013008.htm   Cramer see this as bull market.  The two of us are very Bi-polar so we will have to see what he say’s tonight.   Not buying it.  Market said the market is going higher and this was a great buying opportunity.  Cramer talked about a lot of money moving out of bonds or choosing to invest large sums of cash in stocks.  He likes just about anything he was bearish on from his perspective.  I need to see some more hard work from congress , the senate, and the world before I change my opinion.  Too many problems out there for a recession not to be entered.  I don’t mind if I am wrong.  Interest rates have been cut twice to a Federal funds rate of 3%.  We have a chance to choose a new president, and signs of hope in Iraq.  Lets start talking about world goals, and peace.  Then take action, and stocks can be sustainable.  Sustainability is a better word choice for stable stock prices.

The world needs to come together to meet minumum standards, feeling bearish

I can’t imagine Google doing very well around the world because of the rise of competition in the space.  It’s advertising’s fails to meet minimum standards of value in my opinion for the current stock valuation.  I like Google as a search engine,  and hope the corporation continues its success;but, the share price could go much lower.  

The market is going lower in my opinion because of changes in business climate due to problems not being dealt with effectively. Be careful, market could go higher on the one week fed rate cut having influence, and another rate cut may be coming Wednesday.   I am looking at CALM, GG, CMED, ISRG on my buy list.   

   My economic understanding leads me to believe stocks will be repriced lower because of current prospects for the world economy.   The government and banks are showing signs of weakness.  No concern  or awareness of the rapid population growth of the world, and related risks that may stem from population growth such as over consumption of resources. http://news.yahoo.com/s/livescience/20080127/sc_livescience/humansforceearthintonewgeologicepoch

(The following are my dogma ideas to help the world economy)

The economy does show many signs of hope with the recent cutting interest rates, military successes, and leader like Bill Gates.  On the other hand we have the largest budget deficit in the history of our nation.  The rise of unsustainable riches and inequalities need to be reconciled.  I have a few ideas to help the United States. Inclduing reducing taxes, and reducing the deficit of the government https://topstockblog.wordpress.com/2008/01/23/lower-taxes-and-government-partnerships-with-corporations-and-people-best-for-economy-funded-with-tax-credits/  ,   I have thoughts to help home owners  https://topstockblog.wordpress.com/2008/01/10/motgage-solution-for-the-united-states/

    People are capable of adding value, cooperation, and forgiveness.  All people deserve  clean water, electricity, food, fair treatment, internet, peace, protected boundaries, t.v.’s, and homes.  Embracing these standards would be helpful to turn around the world.   Yet, people continue to act disruptively.  El Sadr threatening to re-engage in fighting after the cease fire ends.   People from all influences need to come together to meet each others’ needs.  Security and good judgement is the best thing all people regardless of ideology can provide for one another.  http://real-us.news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080128/ap_on_re_mi_ea/iraq;_ylt=AkS4MpGm1JqKwfb2qejan5RBXYh4   The world needs to use stored wealth to feed, protect, educate, and help all people find shelter, electricity, bathrooms, and maybe t.v.   At the same time wealthy should be able to enjoy their wealth while expressing an understanding of others.  Americans should not over consume or be scared of people around the world.  Excessive profits can be taxed at higher rates.  The U.S has historically had a back-loaded taxation on wealth a death to maximize growth.  When the laws were made people had no idea how long a person could live or how much wealth could be created.  Wealth needs to be passed on in smaller increments.  Possible by creating passive grant ownership by the government in large corporations.  Minimum standards for all people may be able to be met more appropriately.  As a trader and for all the traders that just wanted to have a rewarding career its about value.  Not the profits.  If people make excessive profits because of unforseen world events.   Governments’ with more cooperative, stated, and transparent global welfare standards could add great value to the world.   The governments of the world need to decide to work together and not let dogma get in the way.     People want others to do well and people failing is very counterproductive because of multiplyer effects.   Trade opportunities and transparent markets are most capable of reaching societies potential for prosperity creation.  We need to work hard to build on previous gains from history.   Society needs to bring security to people.  We need to stop giving free checks to people, and let people earn the money they receive.  World bodies need to bring in more regulators to make sure money at high levels around the world is distributed honestly and with good judgement.   We do not want to fight endless wars.   People like to trade and more traders will help provide liquidity to world markets.  Trade thrives best when everyone is confident in each other and minimum standards are met.

Lower taxes with government partnerships would make corporations much more competitive. Funded with tax credits.

 Given the size of these corporations and importance of operating with a more competitive tax structure.   As an economist I would suggest lowering tax rates from to as low as 15%.  This can be down with the government taking grant style permanent ownership in  corporations funded with tax credits for death taxes.  People could more effective plan their estates without having to make disruptive transactions of their assests before death while settling all or part of their tax burden.   A lower tax rate and partial ownership  would  be most appropriate to allow the government to reduce the tax rate on corporations. 

Private industry needs to become more competitive with lower tax rates and maintain an understanding of good morals.

Government passsive grant style ownership in corporations will help to keep markets competitive and  share risks with business in times of uncertainty.  The government could do this with any corporations and reduce stagnant money.  Greatly strengthen the balance sheet of the United States government.   Imbalances and risks need to be spread out more evenly between business, citizen’s and the government.  Government ownership clearly works to share risks with everyone.   Government involvement can guaranteed operation of businesses and rates of profit regardless if profits evaporates.   Sharing of risks stands to make society more insulated against changes in the world and esasier to make the most appropriate  decisions.  This should be done with the goal of maximizing benefits to society.  

   The influence of money is too strong and sometimes acts in appropriately.  Not creating the most efficient economy possible.   China will crush U.S citizens and corporations with  trade surplus’s and 15% tax rates.   Trade imbalances need to be eliminated over time and concern for everyone needs to be shared.    Tax rates need to be lower to encourage investment, competiveness and a debt free society.  No  more business as usual.  Honesty and hard work is the American way.   Technologies created by corporations should be profited from and shared robustly with the world to minimize waste and optimize economies of scale.

Economic policy to keep America strong in the face of a bear market

 Economic policy to keep America strong in the face of a bear market

The government needs to cut taxes, liabilities, and debt to stay competitive in the global marketplace. To pay for these tax cuts the government should offer to settle estate taxes early for those over the age of 65.  Also, possibly negotiate the settlement of retirement benefits to reduce estate taxes owed at death for the many retirees that don’t need the money. 

The rate of profit a business is expected to return in the future declines because competition around the world competes at higher capabilities.   The government currently carries idiotic large debt loads because of the inappropriate influence of money. The budget needs to balanced and idle money needs to be taken out of the market. Many municipalities and local governments will default at some point in the future with higher borrowing costs, high debt loads, and stagnation. 

The government should work to reduce medical payments paid out through government programs.  This can be done in part by expanding the number of specialized doctors around the country. To meet the growing demands our country has for medical care and ensure competition is competitive.

Greatly expanding the number of doctors in training admitted to doctoral programs is essential to making this happen.  The supply of specialized doctors has been limited by Universities whom I speculate have received large contributions from alumni to unconscionable fail to expand the number of doctoral training programs needed to keep pricing competitive, and pass along the gains our society has made to be able to produce highly educated citizens. Government intervention in any area that money inappropriately influences is necessary and key to a moral and efficient society.

Education is the most cost effective way to deal with all the world’s problems and is not something to be feared.  Education programs should be spread and kept affordable to help society reach our potential in life.

 As our capitalist society matures, private citizens have stored up large amounts of wealth, governments have high levels of debt/obligations, and much of the infrastructure we need going forward is already built. As a result, rates of profit will be lower, and the government needs to intervene to ensure moral as well as proper financial decisions are made.

The government can take passive ownership in large corporation or in real estate to settle estate taxes, and allow citizens to maintain control of the properties that they have obtained over their life time. The government can help facilitate business, and greatly reduce the costs of businesses to operate.

Reducing the money supply will take stagnant money out of the economy, and help society adapt to a more competitive environment. The economy can operate with lower margins as society becomes more efficient; additionally, continuing to add value to society.

The reasons why we need to take these actions 

  China is moving deliberately, appropriately, and swiftly to achieve advantage over the United States.   Much of the nation’s problems can be eliminated with the early settlement of retirement benefits, and the settlement of death taxes.   Restoring our competitive place in the global market and benefiting everyone.  The country would be aligning our national interests with all other nations in particular the Chinese, and greatly reducing the risk and or inappropriate reliance on wars in the future.  Trade balance between competitive nations’ are supposed to be equal. In economic theory a nation is supposed to export as much as it imports from a competitive nation.  Over time with the right policies we can find this balance with all nations as we should have been doing so in the past.  It is pure garbage that is our nation’s interest to keep operating with trade imbalances.  

    The Chinese government has recently moved from a communist society to one that is a 50/50 ownership between society and the private citizens.  I assume they chose the 50/50 rate to give both maximum flexibility and to target the best estimate of long run improvement in efficiency over a life time.   China is currently using a 15% rate of taxation on many of its enterprises because they own half of the large corporations. So they achieve the same tax revenue stream as the United States from businesses’ with one third of the taxation rate. This gives Chinese business’s a huge long term advantage that will compound over time. This could result in disaster for our nation if we are unable to achieve a comparable business model.

China has a lot of idle money in United States government securities compounding interest over time, and extending the competitive advantage of China to compete in the world economy.  We must negotiate with China and find compromise. We need to begin to settle these debts for assets reclaimed in the early retirement of estate taxes and become close allies of China working toward the common good.  We have lots of technology to share that will greatly benefit both societies in the long term.

  

We have made huge advances in solar technology, and salt water was recently made drinkable with the use of a special ray of light in a university lab. We need to move rapidly towards making solar technology and all energy saving a bigger piece of the solution.  Finding ways to share these technologies on our terms with other nations can be very helpful in promoting common welfare, economic growth, and sustainability.

A Capitalist model working together with a communist model has the greatest benefit for everyone.   Both capitalism and communism can work together to add the most value to society with the least risk.  A pure Capitalism system pits those with money against those without money looking for no common ground. A pure Communist system fails to account for individual needs and abilities. Pure capitalism produces violent economic cycles with all classes suffering. Pure Communism produces a less productive society.  Money also becomes isolated in pure Capitalism and leads humans to make inappropriate choices. You see this played out in our society as special interests have inappropriate influence over government officials. Causing politicians to neglect the best interests of the people they represent.  In the past, our nation has resisted renewable energy such as the sun, in favor of importing large amounts of oil overseas and causing unnecessary environmental damage, so a small group of people could get unbelievably rich. 

Many American corporations and citizens currently have large buying power, and will lose those benefits without appropriate intervention.    The cutting of taxes, reduction of current/future liabilities, and retaining of purchase power by our nation is in the entire countries best interest. As well as the world we live in. 

 United States runs a dangerous risk of ruining its credit rating at some point in the future, and can be particularly damaging considering will become more scarce in the future.  Sovereign wealth funds can become more dangerous if we become very weak.  Contrary to what you may have been told about a recent purchase of 7% of Citi group by a foreign sovereign wealth fund is it was made in preferred stock. If the company fails, the sovereign fund will own a much higher percentage than when it originally was reported to have taken a stake in Citi Group Corporation.  Keep in mind they paid cash, and if they become more aggressive they could take control of so much more of the world’s technology.  If we try to limit this investment we run the risk of being cut off of natural resources.  China has recently made a purchase into Black Stone group a corporation that specializes in corporate take over’s. This makes it very clear why trade balances are necessary to be balanced over time.  Isolation is not the solution.  United States corporations receive much of their revenue from foreign nations.  Finding common ground is the solution.

 Our dollar has stood as the world’s storage of wealth because of faith our government could always figure out the answer to any problem.  Well that view is being challenged in the mind of everyone because of poor choices, and arrogance.   The world has limited resources available and we need to be mindful of this.

  As the dollar weakens in a pure capitalist environment it would be in the world’s best interest to exploit this and take advantage of opportunity for their benefit.  We need to switch to a government policy model that seeks sustainability and quality of life for all to bring the world together.

 Humans breed like rats in conditions of poverty and that is arguable the most important reason it is in our best interest to make sure everyone in the world has a good quality of life.   Deals can and need to be made to individuals or nations to control the populations as seen in China.  Are poorest citizens having the most the children and our government subsidizes the problem with payments.  The problem grows and gets worse over time.  Instead we should pay the poorest not to have children and share technology in exchange.  The world can live happily ever after with proper planning and appropriate actions as our world become more advanced.

Conclusion

Taking responsibility with these aggressive actions will help us meet the challenges of the future.  By using the most responsible way to handle our debts, and deal with predictable problems that could arise from the financial burden of our debt we will greatly benefit. 

Corporations could better focus on meeting societies’ needs. All would benefit from the increased efficiencies of scale and sustainability.  It’s a simple change switching from that of a growth dominated society to one of sustainability.  The later should receive a higher valuation in the world market.   The reduction of government debt, entitlement payments, and government ownership is in the best interest of everyone.    

Handling these sensitive issues quickly would be prudent to show Americas’ ability to respond quickly to changing information.  This legislation can be spread broadly to individual states, and the nation.   Please share this idea to gain the support of all and find the best solution. The quality of life for the nation, the environment, and the world’s population depends on good judgment.  Please investigate my ideas, and pass legislation early to the benefit of all.  Any one in elected office can win any election with good policy judgment!
