This is a grand Forum. Often stellar visionary entries are trumped to the next one to chime in...in this case, mine. Sorry about that...

MIKE!! (And please alert Scoop along the way).... let's consider a new Forum format to keep essential news and posts in a parallel area, so that your posts don't get replaced by the next one to come along. We all want to comment, and it is difficult sometimes knowing that what should be on top of the Forum page disappears and gets replaced.

Regarding how best to keep our state parks going, check topic Empire Strikes Back for another view. One thing we all will agree...keep 'em open and in great condition.

Leaseing out State parks to private management is a good idea.
The federal government has been doing it for years.
As for the Pension funding only new employees of the state could recieve a new pension plan, as the existing pension system is locked into the present employee benifit plan by law, and they would always be grand fathered in for the benifits they have earned.

"The longer we postpone political-economic reform, the worse the problem is becoming. We are standing on the edge here about to commit suicide. We cannot hunt down everyone for taxes. That will reduce the VELOCITY of money and cause the hoarding of wealth instigating an economic implosion. We must STOP this insane policy of let's just worry about today with no long-term planning. For unless we address this problem soon, there will be no tomorrow to worry about.

When Rome fell-the Romans were still laughing. As Sinatra's hit song, Send in the Clowns so poignantly stated, don't bother-they are already here. This is what the Sovereign Debt Crisis is all about."

Rick knows what he's talking about in the entry below.

The State's servants, all of them, don't have the guts to take a reduced eventual payout on their penions. Ever since the glory days of the go-go dot-coms when the servants all jacked up their pensions, no moves yet have been made for restructuring with the current economy.


Just received today's comments from a State Senator over the possible privatizing of our parks. Are these fools going to sell everything, possibly, even to foreign interests to protect their pensions? Jerry Brown took away their State cell phones and we're still in a mess. Jerty needs to cut into the funding of those lucrative pensions. We hear about what Goldman Sachs did to Greece to cripple it but truth be told, California is in worse shape than Greece as we are just not told about it.

Dear Constituents,

The State has begun the process to privatize our parks!

The State Public Works Board and the California Department of Parks and Recreation want to solicit proposals from private organizations, including for–profits, to operate concessions (campgrounds, food services, etc.) at many of the state parks slated for closure. The proposal would allow for–profit and private organizations to operate concessions at eleven state parks–six in our district (Sugarloaf Ridge State Park, Russian Gulch State Park, Hendy Woods State Park, Westport Union Landing State Park, Austin Creek State Recreation Area and Standish–Hickey State Park) –with very low returns to the state. These agreements would undercut current negotiations with local non–profits to sign agreements to operate many of these parks – agreements that depend on the revenues that concessions would bring.

Not only does this proposal undermine local efforts to keep parks open, it’s questionable if low rents paid to the state will be sufficient to economically sustain our parks. I see these concession agreements as a major step toward privatization of our state parks.

There are two things you can do to stop this ill–conceived proposal:

1. Join me in speaking out against this plan at the State Public Works Board meeting at 10 am, Thursday, January 19 in Sacramento. The meeting will be held in the State Capitol building, Room 3191.

2. Answer this brief survey so that I can share your positions: Click Here for the Survey

If the Water Board were really after environmental results, ask the simple question: how would the water in Kanaka Creek change if their fraudulent attempts actually came to fruition?

The water wouldn't change, can't change, and never will change because the Water Board and all their cronies can't play God well enough to actually affect anything. I've repeatedly pointed out, in fact pointed out in front of the California Regional Water Quality Control Board in person, that ambient levels as measured have been consistent long before the Original Sizteen to One Mine ever existed, upstream as well as downstream.

They know this, and refuse to admit it. It is criminal.

Imagine this: we're paying (as tax-payers) for these A-holes.

The Water Board is no more than a paper pushing band of administrative goofballs. With our environment under attack by the oil and gas, these guys do little of anything productive but stick it to us to pay their salaries and support their pensions with no intact recognition of intelligence or fair play.

When Jason Burke explained the facts of life to them they just acted stupid and arrogant and got away with it. This is a common theme among the servants of the State of California. These servants at the Board are just environmental racketeers. If their heart and souls were really in protecting the environment they should all get a real job and donate their free time to cleaning up the real offenders, the oil and gas industry of the State. The following linked article clearly states what's happening to our in-the-round water supplies.

New York banks have been stealing from investors but there are and have been champions of the people that are "hot on their heels." Thank you Martin Armstrong and belatedly, Mark Pittman.

"The record suicide rate among farmers in India continues to rise, with one farmer now committing suicide every 30 minutes. Many media reports blame failed GM Bt cotton(Monsanto) crops for the crisis.

More than a quarter of a million farmers have killed themselves in the last 16 years in what is the largest recorded wave of suicides in history. An article for Sky News reports that one farmer who committed suicide "had been persuaded to use genetically modified seeds by the possibility of a better harvest.

What he wasn't told was that they needed more rain than the region provided. "Farmers who grow GM crops also have to borrow money for expensive pesticides and fertilizers. When the crop fails, they cannot repay their debts. The article comments, "Across rural India there is now widespread despair. The fields are also filling up with widows."

Fortunately, there are seed banks around the world free of genetic engineering. Also serious, is the toll bee colonies are taking in reductions due to the suspected negative impact on them from GMO flowering crops.

Greed and the unbridled profit incentive continues to take its toll.

Happy New Year's


In the video is shown pristine environmental locations and some of earth's beautiful creatures that remain. It is our duty of stewardship for 2012 and the years to follow to do our part, in anyway we can, in restraining creedy money hungry corporations from continuing to destroy Mother Nature's World for future generations.

The oil, nuclear power and chemical companies currently in the United States, Japan, Russia, England and China are the most irresponsible out-of-control offenders that the world has ever witnessed.

As an example, the oil industry of the mentioned countries continue to annilllate vast areas of the world's waterbodies and inlands at a mind-boggling rate, killing off millions of animals, fish and birds that depend upon their environments to survive and reproduce in.

This whole disaster is a crime against nature and mankind and has to be stopped.

Happy New Year's to all the friends of the Sixteen.

Beware of this man, Ben Bernanke. Some comments today by Bob Chapman concerning this man:

The privately owned Central Bank of the US, the Federal Reserve, has absolutely no authority to bailout Europe, which they have been doing for three years and no one says a thing about it. Less than a month ago, Fed Chairman Bernanke said he has no authority to bailout Europe and he had no intention of doing so.

This is why the Fed needs to be terminated and its functions returned to the US Treasury. The Fed and other central banks running the world and they shouldn’t be. Mr. Bernanke has promised more transparency and two weeks later we get more subterfuge. There is no question Ron Paul and we have been right for over 50 years. Elect Ron Paul and get rid of the Fed.
