E-RFD: Who is Actually After Your Social Security?
Surprise: Dems Have Already Privatized Social Security !!
(So, why all those political TV spots about the Tea Party threat of "privatization?")
E-RFD: (the Great Recession) Get the facts right!
In the spirit of "miss me yet?" this piece uses what is known as "the truth" to explain

This is about wine. Oregon Magazine's Editor, Fred Delkin, is a master of the arts of the
grape. One of the founding members of the Oregon Wine Advisory Board, and former
owner of Jake's Crawfish restaurant in Portland, Fred for years did not particularly respect
the man discussed in this piece. Praise from one's enemy is rare, indeed.
Who was the first black Speaker of the House of Representatives?
Who rewrote the history texbooks so you would never even know there was one?

Global Warming? Author Debunks Current Claims
Amid all the political excitement being stirred up
byPresident Obama's 'Cap & Trade'measure he wants to

implications of the global warming debate. Goreham,
an engineer with an MBA from the University of Chicago,
asks very pertinent and informed questions.
