      Sure it's depressing. And what's sad, most people who read article this are going to believe it ! You read the paragraphs in the article and not much more. The whole piece is on the website of the Reason Public Policy Institute. If you poke around the site, it doesn't take long to find the link to their home page and a list of Reason Foundations Business Advisory Board. If you take a few minutes to read the names and associations of those board members, you find they represent everything that we don't represent.
      I did a quick cut n paste of about 1/3 of the names there and a little more www searching several of the names I wasn't familiar with. It took about 15 minutes to find who influences Reasons policies. It so happens that I had rebuked one of the Reason Foundations editorials in the FWST a year or two back. I have known about their basic philosophy ever since.
      Here are a few of their associations or companies or organizations that board members represent:
      Board of Directors of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation.
      Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland
      Western States Petroleum Association
       investment bank and institutional securities firm
      Philip Morris
      Procter & Gamble
      Tennenbaum & Co., LLC, a Los Angeles-based investment firm, (big Bush supporter)
      Prudential Capital
      Eli Lilly & Company
      Pfizer Inc.
      Gilder Foundation...Beware of anti-public education initiatives (not my words)
      I read a rant/posting that Wyldon sent to NTREG a few weeks ago titled "gov't pull back". Chuckles replied saying how acquaintances of his were outraged with govt. corruption or something along those lines; rather a strong statement for Chuck, I thought. He implied that too many people are sheep. Simply follow the one in front.
      My reply was SPEAK UP. People won't hear us if we don't shout louder than those supporters of the status-quo. All we can do is tell the truth. Respond to crap like the Reason Foundations support of... well, what did they support?
       NOT renewable sources of electric power to create hydrogen. Their quote was "Reformation of hydrogen still means using hydrocarbons such as natural gas as a source of hydrogen...". By not endorsing the more cost-effective option, renewable energy, they are supporting big oil. If you just sit back and moan that the nation is going to hell in a handbasket, it will. I have always liked the bumper sticker that says: Question Authority. Make it a New Years resolution to publically promote Renewables, or whatever else you believe in. The sheep will be listening.
      Peace, Jim Duncan
