WILL POWER REPORT: TAX CREDITS FOR CLEAR CUTS?

Nothing but the Truth!

By Will Power

September 28, 2009--American Banks and Brokers are so desperate for new financial instruments that they invent entire new commodities to trade- such as “carbon credits” . The idea is to slow global warming by encouraging green business practices. But the market has been a bust, like in New Zealand, where carbon credits that once went for $7.00 a share are now worth 25 cents.

No matter! In fact, “Green” Governor Arnold “Terminator” Swartzenegger, who received $100,000 from Sierra Pacific Logging, muscled through a decision that allows loggers who clear-cut California forests to claim a “carbon credit” for decimating the environment. According to Arnold, clear-cutting is "Green"!

WILL POWER REPORT: ANOTHER EXPENSIVE FIRE?


Nothing but the Truth!

 

September 4, 2009-- Big surprise! Another fire in LA County will cost millions to extinguish. Firefighters come from Shasta County to get in on the juicy overtime. Private contractors lease out bulldozers and aircraft at ridiculous rates to save the homes of the foolish rich who build in canyons and on ridge-tops.

WILL POWER: ULTERIOR MOTIVES

Nothing but the Truth!

June 21, 2009--As California lurches towards insolvency, the supply-siders who wrecked the system now propose to turn over the state’s assets to private parties. The most valuable and scenic properties, the California State Parks, are now going to be rented out for private “management”. It’s the first step towards selling them outright to developers.

WILL POWER REPORT: RFID AND THE ELECTRONIC NAZIS

Nothing but the Truth! June 14, 2009 -- The implantation of tiny RFID (radio frequency identification devices) devices on practically anything has been promoted as “anti-shoplifting” and “inventory control”. But did you all new cars will soon be equipped with an RFID device so accurate that the government will be able to track you car everywhere you drive and at all hours?

WILL POWER REPORT: CALIFORNIA TO SELL COLISEUM?

Nothing but the Truth! California’s Governor “Terminator” Arnold Swartzenegger is now so frightened about California’s deficit that he now wants to sell off California landmarks like San Quentin and the LA Coliseum. He also wants Big Oil to drill off the coast of Santa Barbara which he has opposed for years. He thinks the state can earn $200 Billion. He’s using a self-created crisis to change the political landscape in California.

THE WILL POWER REPORT: CONGRESS MUST BAN "ADD-ON" AMENDMENTS

Nothing but the truth!

Congress Must Ban “Add-on” Amendments

May 12, 2009 (San Diego)--Congress this week is discussing ways to limit credit-card companies. But there’s a trout in the milk. Included in the language changing credit-card rules is language regulating the carrying of loaded guns in National Parks.

How did the gun amendment find its way into a credit-card bill? It’s common practice.

WILL POWER REPORT: A FISH STORY

Nothing but the Truth!

By Will Power

April 7, 2009 San Diego)--A tragic event happened on a Southern California fishing boat this week. A deckhand, hoping to amuse some children on an “Educational” Fishing Trip, stuck a live fish in his mouth. The fish logged in the man’s windpipe and he was suffocated.

But it is the fish, not the people in danger. Overfishing and pollution have caused some species of fish to disappear, while others can no longer legally be caught.

The Will Power Report: Nothing but the Truth

LAY-OFF NOTICES ARE EXTORTION!

February 17, 2009 (San Diego) -- The use of layoff warning letters as an excuse to terrify workers has an old history. For decades, school boards would send out letters to teachers on March 15, designed to terrify teachers and force them to accept substandard contracts and working conditions.

Arnold “Terminator” Swartzenegger,
the cinema millionaire, thinks it is amusing to cut payments to the elderly,
the poor and the disabled. To the Terminator, these folks are just props in
a California comedy that has degenerated from melodrama to tragedy as the state
approaches bankruptcy.

  I imagine lot of people
have had Hawaii Blackouts after a few too many Mai-Tais. But I’m alarmed
that President-Elect Obama was out of touch for the better part of a day.
The power went out in Oahau.
Now I realize he is not President yet. But just the idea that a power outage
could last for 12 hours is pretty scary in itself.

THE WILL POWER REPORT - Nursing Home Problems Classified?

Nothing but the Truth!

By Will Power

Will Power LogoDecember 28, 2008 (San Diego) —  Another “lame-duck” Federal rule concerning Nursing homes has been approved by the outgoing Bush Administration.

  I am at the end of my rope with Big Pharma.  They
are the greediest, least efficient, most corrupt corporations going, and that
included Big Oil.  They sell bad, unsafe, overpriced drugs that kill people
and don't allow people who need drugs to get them.

When I was about five years old, my father
was a US Air Force Officer. He was involved in a Court-Martial in Wichita ,
Kansas. It seemed a considerable number of US Army blankets went missing, and
several airmen were charged with stealing the blankets and selling them off
the base. I don't even remember the disposition, though I recollect nobody
was found guilty.
