TLCU Web TV and Old Tombstone Studio now has a new home-base. The STUDIO is on the shelf until we engineer a custom concession-style trailer for ON-Location presentations with our new 46 inch Sony LCD Display on board. Thanks, everyone, for your patience while we are continuing our expansion. The relocation actually took only about one hour, thanks to Doc & Mary at Tombstone’s GIFT of GIVING Thrift Store on West Allen Street.
 We are thankful, also for having been blessed with advanced foresight of the current economic disaster, and the challenges we met when the VA disastrously reduced my Veteran’s benefits by screwing up a simple address and denied me due process. Years have gone by without McCain being good to his word to make a simple phone call and get my benefits restored. His failure and refusal to help me has convinced Barb & I that he is incapable of executing the responsibilities he now has, much less those of the presidency. He is my Senator, I’m his constituent, I’ve spoken to him personally in Tombstone., he is well aware of how aggravated, injured, and disappointed I am, I’ve told him so sparing no words, yet he has not even used my case for political hay to make himself look good or sympathetic to veterans- because he is NOT. So it is bittersweet to suggest we now have answers for MANY NOW FACING DRASTIC CHANGES, though I must say, not for all, that we have found successful adjustments, changes, and reconsidered plans now worth CONSIDERING- answers we developed during a prolonged period when my income was reduced to less than 30% of what it was- without notice or a chance to respond. In these last few years we have advanced our project to the operating level supportive of a quick expansion to a more commercial scale. In curious parallel, our resource management plan for our Amethyst Ranch Mining Campground community has strong elements of solution for many such communities similarly situated to natural resources. The collapse of the artificial economy makes it obvious that practical trade and barter of goods, services, & food is the only prudent and realistic response.
In journalism, its rare that one finds enough research to support a hunch or inferred trend. In private business, its hard to find enough research to plan ahead with confidence. It is indeed fortunate that I find articles supporting both, on local as well as national levels. Lets start today’s editorial & news with what Ron Paul has said, since for the most part he is very understandable and relatively honestly blunt, forthright & truthful.

Asked if civil unrest was a possibility in the midst of an economic depression, referencing a recent Army Times report concerning
the use of active duty military being brought back from Iraq for
“Homeland patrols” and “crowd control,” Paul questioned, “Are we going
to have martial law or are we going to have more freedoms? The more
problems that we have, the more likely it is that we’re going to have
martial law, so I do think they anticipate and they plan for these
things.”


Asked if criminal investigations and prosecutions of individuals on
Wall Street should commence, Paul agreed but said that the main target
of criminal inquiry should be the Federal Reserve board itself because,
“That’s where the fraud is.”

“They want to be lawless, they don’t want to be held accountable,” he added.

Paul said that grand juries should be convened to take
on prosecutions rather than the FBI becoming involved, stating, “We
have proper authority with that and experience with it and the Enron
case is a good example.”

The Congressman said that Greenspan and Bernanke should
be criminally charged but that such an effort would be largely
symbolic. “Morally speaking, they’re the culprits,” said Paul.

Asked what his solution to the crisis would be, Paul
said, “I think the most important thing to do is to send the message
that we’re going to quit living beyond our means and the president can
set the standard for that and he has the most control under the
Constitution on foreign policy – he can say no more wars, we’re done
with the wars, we’re not going to take on the Russians, we’re not going
to take on people in Venezuela, we’re going to start talking to the
Cubans and bring our troops home and save hundreds of billions of
dollars – that would send a powerful message that the dollar would
respond to and oil prices would come down.”

Paul said that Americans had to accept a new idea of
government that harked back to what the founders envisaged and that the
welfare state would have to unravel along with aspirations of building
a geopolitical empire.

“It will not solve the problem, it just delays the
inevitable,” said Paul of the bailout, adding that he expects the bill
to pass in a move that would, “Defy the American people.”

“I think they get to the point where they think they’re
like God and can control everything and they don’t realize that the
market really is more powerful than all the bankers and all the
politicians….Ultimately the underground economy is the real economy and
I think they could over step themselves and hopefully we could come out
with a better world afterwards,” concluded the Congressman.
