Doomsday Postponed

As part of my usual routine, I read the completion reports for new wells in the mid-continent states. It has been apparent for a year or two that horizontal drilling technology has changed the game of oil and gas production in the U.S. In addition to the large new natural gas reserves being found in shale formations, a great deal of new gas, rich in liquid condensates, and new oil as well, is being recovered from "tight" sands. Many of these low permeability formations have been found over the years, but until now it has not been economical to exploit them.

Root cause of our economic problems

If you have done your research it is evident that the root of all our present financial problems go back to the creation of the Federal Reserve System. The only way we can stop our monetary decline is to eliminate the FRS. Does anyone have any ideas that they would like to share. I would very much like to hear them. In discussing different problems you to will see that it all goes back to you know who.

Where to search land for sale?

Hey all -

I'm looking to search for land in the Northeast, both for getting a general sense of prices/availability and to find a single piece of property to eventually purchase. Any recommendations for sites or general approaches? Craigslist seems to not be the way to go...

Thanks!

Occupy Wall Street - a first hand assessment

Here is an honest assessment of what's going on with the Occupy Wall Street protest by someone who has been part of it for, it seems, at least several days.  It was forwarded to an email list I monitor by a friend of the writer.  If is assessment is correct, it's important to pay attention to this movement as it could lead to all sorts of big and unpredictable changes - some of them positive and some not (think about the response of those in high places if this movement grows enough to pose a serious threat to the status quo).

A Cynical Look At Labor And Capital These Days

Big Disclaimer

I'm not saying most entrepreneurs are like this. There are a lot of great, conscientious, patriotic American entrepreneurs and corporate leaders. Some of the good people are right here in this community. They care about their employees and their communities.

But we all know many American companies are doing exactly this. And that is why I wrote the following:
