SORT BY Relevancy
John Farrell is the Director of Democratic Energy at the Institute for Local Self-Reliance. John is best known for his vivid illustrations of the economic and environmental benefits of local ownership of decentralized renewable energy.
He’s the author of Energy Self-Reliant States, a state-by-state atlas of renewable energy potential highlighted in the New York Times, showing that most states don’t need to look outside their borders to meet their electricity needs. He’s also written extensively on the economic advantages of Democratizing the Electricity System, published a rich interactive map on solar grid parity, and polished the policies (like Minnesota’s solar energy standard) necessary to support locally owned renewable energy development.

Is the Democratic Party too timid
Last week I asked the questions If Rand Paul encroaching on Hillary Clinton’s turf. The question maybe should have been, what is Hillary Clinton’s turf? Is her turf the turf the Democratic Party once had? Is that what Hillary Clinton represents?
Many continue to believe it is crazy to take Rand Paul seriously. Many believe his past civil rights statements and faux pas made it impossible to take him as a serious presidential contender.
There is a vacuum. There is a populous vacuum in the country that needs to be filled. Elitist Liberals and rank and file Democrats as late as a few hours before this show continue to claim that America will never support a guy who wants to shrink government as Rand Paul does. To that I ask a specific question what happens if Americans believe that government to them has been ineffective? Why not try something different? I am just saying.

U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa and U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz square off this year to fill the last two years of the six-year term of powerful political icon Daniel K. Inouye, who died in 2012.
Both are popular Democrats who have enjoyed the support of many of the same voters in the past. Most of the polls published this year describe this race as too close to call in the Aug. 9 primary election Honolulu Magazine
U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa holds an edge over U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz in the Democratic primary for Senate, a new Hawaii Poll shows, and voters who prefer the congresswoman cite her legislative experience as the main reason.

In December of 1964, Dr. King traveled to Norway to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, and afterwards he began voicing his views on capitalism and socialism. In 1966, Dr. King made a trip to a SCLC staff meeting and he said the following: “Something is wrong with capitalism... There must be a better distribution of wealth, and maybe America must move toward a Democratic Socialism. In this episode, we will discuss why King criticized capitalism, and why he viewed democratic socialism as a better alternative.
Taxes are ridiculous, we have laid off troops in the field, and the whole world is going to hell in a hand basket. That’s just a few of the problems we face in this country, all while our President is either out spending millions of taxpayer dollars to attend fund raisers for the democratic party, or golfing. The world has stopped looking to the U.S. leadership and Putin is running amok. There just is not enough time to discuss all the moves that this president has made to achieve his goal to fundamentally change America, from a free market-driven society, to a socialist government driven society, where business and personal successes are punished for making profits.

In their haste to beat down gold in the wake of the Fed meeting, looks like it wasn't quite enough to keep it down. While Da Boyz always like to slam gold on the last day of the month whenever possible, it seems to be snapping back right away.
Keep your eyes focused on the political scene. The same pattern that brought you Comrade DeBlasio is likely to bring you Comrade Warren as the Democratic nominee.
