image Unconventional Oil And Gas Production: A New Era Of Eminent Domain And Condemnation 120_sonoma_county_wells.jpg original image ( 1800x1280) - by Tomas DiFiore
Eminent Domain, Condemnation, Inverse Condemnation... It's a hot topic, in every State of the Union. Combined with 'New Technology Concepts' of Township Drainage - Beyond Forced Pooling and Unitization – Pipelines Employ Eminent Domain and Condemnation. Yet well depletion rates and the costs of maintaining current production levels are an investment sinkhole. Dear Mr. President, that '100 years of energy independence' isn't right beneath our feet anymore, it's being exported. Leases on (und...

text September 2000 - April 2013, the Israeli military killed 1,518 Palestinian children - by US House hearing 8/1
"Between September 2000 and April 2013, the Israeli military killed 1,518 children." As one report described it: "That's the equivalent of one Palestinian child killed by Israel every 3 days for almost 13 years." And thousands of children and civilians are being killed and wounded in Gaza as I write.

image California’s Top-Two Primary Eliminates Third-Party Rivals 120_ellenbrown.jpg original image ( 960x720) - by repost
By eliminating party primaries, Top Two increased the cost of running for office – and the need for early big money – for candidates from all parties. Candidates now have to campaign to the entire electorate in June as well as in November (assuming they manage to reach the general election). That means the role of money in California politics has only increased as a result of Top Two, making it even easier for “the 1%” to buy elections.

I was interviewed in a current affairs program last week, and according to reports following that program, I agreed that Mrs. Gloria Macapagal Arroyo should be granted bail. It is unfortunate that these reports misrepresent my statements in the interview.

text Why the Green Party Opposes Proposition 42 - by reader
"The Green Party is concerned that Governor Brown and the state legislature are using various tactics - like Propositions 30 and 42, as well as the termination of redevelopment agencies without backfilling funding for cities to meet their housing element mandates - to create the illusion that the state is fiscally sound, and its structural deficit has been addressed. In reality, the state too often shifts the burden for its responsibilities to local government, without ensuring funding for th...

On May 2, 2014, 39 people died in the Odessa House of Trade Unions in a terrible fire set by fascist friends of Democrat Obama and Republican McCain. The argument that the Democrats somehow prevent fascism has been eliminated; they support fascism, the same as the Republicans. In fact, both the Democrats and Republicans proudly announce they have no difference in foreign policy and they both support the Nazi and Confederate flag wavers in Ukraine. These fascists now sit in power in Ukraine...
