Privatizing Public Capital

While investigative research into the fraud aided and abetted by Congress and the White House is worthwhile, one can casually ascertain who stole the food from our mouths with a little reconnaissance at the yacht club or a stakeout at the opera house. Those yachts and limos weren't purchased with sweat, they came from cheating others out of a decent living. More recently, they were made possible by government handouts as a reward for creative larceny--all part of privatizing public capital.

PayPal Problem

If anyone sent us a donation on PayPal that wasn't confirmed, please let us know. Apparently they have become dysfunctional when it comes to paying out in a timely fashion. More on this problem in the link.

New Project

Dear Friends,

I'm working on a film project produced by the Center for World Indigenous Studies in Olympia, Washington. The film series -- planned for public television -- is on the UN, climate change, and Indigenous peoples. (We just sent a proposal to Sundance.)

We plan on a web page as soon as we have seed money; for now we are pursuing start-up grants, and later, major funders.

To launch the half million dollar project, we need to raise matching money for a $10,000 Humanities Washington project grant by the end of March. If you want to help us, just click on the donation button for the Prepared to Lead Fund and follow the simple instructions.

Blessings and many thanks.
