  • Saudi Arabia, Russia and Oil Production [View article]
    We face, now or soon, peak oil, and the fact that too much of what goes to Saudi Arabia and other OPEC countries then goes to fund madrassas and other sources of terrorism.

    A practical way to reduce our dependence on our enemies for oil is to require gasoline burning cars to be ready to burn methanol, ethanol, or gasoline. the next two weeks are the opportunity to add that provision (S. 835)
    to this year's Energy Bill.

  • The U.S. No Longer Controls the Price of Oil [View article]
    Here's a large partial solution. Write your Member of Congress to pass the Open Fuel Standards Act, S 835, that would require cars to be flex fuel, able to burn up to 85% Methanol, Ethanol, or gasoline. Methanol, in particular, from natural gas is cheaper to drive than gasoline, even at current prices. As important as the rising costs are the huge petrodollars to OPEC and Saudis, and their "charities" that support terrorism.

    The www.magicformulafunds..../ site says "MagicFormulaInvesting... while looking great and easy, is simply not accurate. Professor Greenblatt’s back tests provided accurate results, however, the person responsible for maintaining the website simply isn’t doing it right.Stocks that should be ranked 356 or 253 are showing up in the top 30 as the website doesn’t use an accurate data source.
