One for Norfie and the other hopefuls among us:
"Yeah! Iím definitely a hopeful person. But I think itís really important to differentiate between false hope and real hope. You canít have real hope if you are deceiving yourself or allowing yourself to be deceived. Itís important to have a clear understanding of whatís 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. Check my blog - search "sustainable development" or browse through the posts. The new federal council for Rural America seems to be the icing on the cake. check VT commons Blog
