Beating High Energy and Food Prices

Energy and food prices will keep going up (due to the printing of gzillions of dollars by Helicopter Ben to pay for the Iraq war and the bailout of Freddie, Fannie, Bear et al, the biofuels subsidies, and other idiotic financial policies).

How can we protect ourselves against this threat to our wallet?

Perhaps by producing more of our own energy and food. Now, this article is not about getting back to the land and singing Kumbaya. I'm writing simply on how to stay afloat financially in a very unstable economy.


Due to high oil prices, major breakthroughs in energy production are happening every day.

OCA covers 9/11 Truth!!!

In their 9/15/06 #90 Organic Bytes newsletter (Health, Justice and Sustainability News Tidbits with an Edge!), the Organic Consumer's Association had a review of 911: Press For Truth and links to prominent 911 Truth sites! This is almost unheard of, considering this organization covers organic food and health related issues. This newsletter was emailed to OCA's massive email list. Sure to reach a whole new crowd, OCA needs to be commended for covering 911 Truth, realizing 9/11 is the bigger problem affecting other issues like health freedom and the like. Bravo!

Marking the fifth anniversary of 9/11, the media has provided extensive, though unfortunately superficial, coverage of this turning point in modern history. Among the consequences of that fateful day have been a bloody and highly unpopular war in Iraq, as well as a wasteful, unsustainable explosion of military spending to over $500 billion a year--leaving little or no funds to clean up the environment, stabilize the climate, green and re-localize the economy, maintain public health and education, and move the nation's food and farming system in an organic and healthy direction. Although the mainstream media has been predictably reluctant to delve into some of the glaring inconsistencies and gaps in the "official story" about what really happened on that tragic day, polls show that 40% of Americans have been doing their homework on the internet, and now understand that the Bush Administration's version of what happened on 9/11 is a big lie. An eye-opening, heart-breaking 90-minute documentary called "9/11 Press for Truth" was released on the internet this week, featuring expert analysts and family members of 9/11 victims who are angry and appalled at the continuing government and media cover-up.
