AN ILL-WIND BLOWS IN OCOTILLO: HANGING THE TOWN OUT TO DRY



by Terry Weiner


August 31, 2012 (San Diego)--Ocotillo California is an apron of desert fanning out broadly from the base of the  rugged Jacumba and Inkopah Mountains, ninety miles east of San Diego and 60 miles west from Yuma Arizona. After winding down 16 miles of Interstate 8 from the agricultural town of Jacumba at 3,000 ft. to the desert floor at 500 ft., you will be treated to a view of a spectacular and relatively uncluttered Colorado Desert landscape. On a rare clear day, you can see the blue of the Salton Sea about 40 miles away. Mexico is just south on the other side of the Jacumba Mountains.

WILL POWER REPORT: REPUBLICAN WEAPON—GAS PRICES

 

Nothing but the Truth!
By Will Power
February 26, 2012 (San Diego)--The LA Times ran a story which criticized Obama for not keeping gas prices lower. That’s hilarious!  A Democratic President can no more control gas pricing than control the weather. With the Conservatives in Congress blocking nearly all Climate Change and Alternative Energy programs it is easy to see the Oil Dinosaurs are in charge of US Energy Policy. In fact, a case could be made the Big Oil controls not only Foreign Policy, but the Beltway itself.
