Could add 210 billion in revenue over the next decade? Let's just say that happens (it won't but let's say it's true). That's 21 billion a year.

How much is the Dali Obama's deficits over the next decade? 8 trillion? 10 trillion?

While going after additional revenues that are being "hidden" in foreign corporations and banks is good, it's not enough. What's really important is to create more real wealth. We can do that by rebuilding our industrial base, creating a new energy economy, and more. What won't work anymore is a bunch of Wall Street and banking dopes shuffling paper thinking they're making money. Nobody gets something for nothing in the long run, and I'm afraid that's how our economy has been running for too long. The "housing boom" was doomed from the start. The only real wealth created in my lifetime in the US was the Internet and computing boom. That created real wealth by changing how people worked, building and selling products, newly managed information, and communications. Energy is another great opportunity, and I wish somebody would figure out the potential of space exploration and exploitation.

Complete Fallacy. The only real wealth is gold. Period. The rest is just paper or imagination. Selling things is 'real wealth' like your house is 'real wealth'. Same thing. If the economy totally collapsed tomorrow, you find that 'real wealth' better be gold in your pocket.

These things aren't created by politicians Ken, despite Al Gore's internet claims.

When the cost and efficiency of producing non-oil energy becomes better than oil-based energy, the "Green economy" (chuckle) will take off. Look at the whole ethanol disaster if you think politicians should be picking winners and losers in the Green marketplace.

Not even gold has any real value, only food and water. The one that controls that controls everything else. Look what happened when we shifted a minor percent of corn production to fuel, food riots in the the third world. It's easy to forget with abundance of food we have here that half the world lives on the razors edge of food and water availability. Our dogs eat better then them.

We've had an issue going on for years now in Carlsbad. A company wants to convert an old powerplant on the coast to a salt removal water plant. We're desperate for water here and of course you know who's been blocking it all this time...

The Eco Wackos. Processing the salt water is going to kill some sardines and lord knows we can't have that!
