Links from the Gregg Zone

1) Going to start off with a link sent to me by our fried Tony in California it is one of those spoof sites to sort of tweak your friends minds a little. The link is the one sent to me, you will just have to click on it to see just how well it is done, do your own at the end. I think you can have a lot of fun, of course that is if you can spell.

2) This is one for those who do not understand just how bad the economy can get. When I read this article I was torn between being scared, and thinking it was a little funny. I would think if you lived there you sure would not see the humor. Zimbabwe has just released 100 billion dollar bills, and yes that is billion with a “B”. If that surprises you how about this one of those bills is not enough to buy a loaf of bread. Worth about one dollar U.S.

3) For the first of two green links this week a site I like quite a bit. Good videos, thoughtful solutions, interesting links. They have a different way of looking at the oil problem, they show industries how they can profit by changing. When you compare the price of a barrel of oil to a wind mill, or solar panel, the ratio changes as the price of oil increases, there by making what was once costly cheaper. If we remove the subsidy’s we give to the oil companies, or start to give them to the green producers, we might have a chance.

4) Here is another green link I thought you might link it is from a radio interview I heard the other night that just floored me. Basically about converting to alcohol. I had no idea how twisted the oil problem is when viewed through the lens of history. The early Fords were alcohol cars, designed for the farms using stills to create their own fuel. It was the oil barons who sold our future for a buck. Did you know that four million dollars were donated to the probation movement by oil people, the legislation pushed through congress by wealthy oil people. Not to stop people from drinking alcohol, but to stop us from fueling their cars with it.

5) Last a link suggested by Joe, I know it was one of Jacks favorites also, he told me once that he went here daily to click the ad button. Every click helps to feed animals in need of care. I thought it might be a good time to ask those of you who might be interested to help with something he cared about.
