The Lost Revolution
By Anthony Hargus

Supreme Court Must End Drug Law Madness – End Plant Prohibitions
By Kent Welton
March 27, 2009
The cruel idiocy of the drug war is in full view today. The carnage is a direct result of drug laws outlawing the mere possession of nature’s own god-given, unadulterated, plant substances – i.e., marijuana and coca leaves, and mushrooms, etc.
To outlaw nature in this fashion, and prohibit every other human being’s right to nature’s pharmacopeia, you first… Continue

Nearly everyone knows that white flour is not healthy for you, but most people don’t know that when white flour is bleached, it can actually be FAR worse for you.
It’s generally understood that refining food destroys nutrients. With the most nutritious part of the grain removed, white flour essentially becomes a form of sugar. Consider what gets lost in the refining process:
Half of the beneficial unsaturated fatty acids
Virtually all of the… Continue

The petite Eskimo-Chugach woman gave me that you-dumb-ass-white-boy look.

She stuck it in, under the gravel of the beach at Sleepy Bay, her village's fishing ground. Gail's hand came up dripping with black, sickening goo. It could make you vomit. Oil from the Exxon… Continue

Russell's DOW THEORY daily commentary

Faye read this site and said, "it's too disjointed. You're all over the place. Stick with one or two concepts." My answer, "I can't. I have too many items I want to talk about."
I've written in the past that if you want to make 'BIG' money in the market, you have to take an over-sized position and be dead right on the trend. The last time I did that was in late-1958. I was very bullish on the market at that… Continue

Clean Coal--The Ultimate Oxymoron
By Sara Nichols
March 19, 2009
A little over a year ago, I was in West Virginia driving slowly behind my husband. He was on his bike near the end of his cross-country bike race. As you can imagine, driving behind a bike never allowed me to go much over 10 miles per hour. So I did a lot of looking around. The two lane road took us through a lush, green forest that felt almost primordial. From my interest in… Continue
