  1. This is a great series for those who have not yet woken up to the reality of the situation we find ourselves in. I am going to post this on my Facebook page and send it to everyone I can. The tipping point is near. Once the acceptance stage is reached, we can seriously move on to the solutions, and permaculture is front and center in my opinion. I can’t recommend this series highly enough.

  2. No! “America: Freedom to Fascism” is a right wing sillyness about the non legality of income tax. Whether technically legal or not is a matter for those who know law etc. But income tax as a concept is good, assuming a reasonable government. These right winger are always moaning about tax itself, but not how tax is spent – which is the real issue.

    Peace

  3. Is there some way to download your videos in their entirety to my iPod, like in the podcast or video app, vs streaming waiting until I can find a wiifi?
