One for Norfie and the other hopefuls among us:
-
"Yeah! I’m definitely a hopeful person. But I think it’s really important to differentiate between false hope and real hope. You can’t have real hope if you are deceiving yourself or allowing yourself to be deceived. It’s important to have a clear understanding of what’s going on."

The veneer of The Green Revolution is much thicker than you may have guessed. Just look at the smart grid and smart growth frenzy, these are obvious tools of social engineering, in the guise of being green. I have done a lot of research on this and it is clear a whole new infrastructure is being put into place that will make us even more dependent on the Feds regulations.

The new federal council for Rural America seems to be the icing on the cake. check VT commons Blog

The green veneer is thickened by the thought of a crock of gold waiting to be dipped into by anyone with an idea or sales pitch that will attract money.
Nothing much else apart from wealth drives humans to get things done, there are very few Mahatma Gandhi's or Mother Theresa's among us.
