The Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) wants the rights to pump billions of gallons of water annually from rural central Nevada and Utah toLas Vegas.  This will be catastrophic for farmers and ranchers in central Nevada and Utah.  SNWA would drain the groundwater below the existing vegetation of about 19,000 square miles (about the size of Vermont).

A Heartbreaking Story of Elder Abuse and Legal “Thievery”: PART 1

Until relatively recently, I was unaware of how rampant elder abuse is within the legal court system.  For almost the last two decades, my life has been consumed by helping as many people as I could in a different way than most give help.  I have informally counseled and helped thousands of people through the publishing of my book, as well as in private sessions as a medium/psychic.  It was not until my good friend started to share her story with me that my eyes were opened to something far more prevalent than I was cognizant of; at least on a conscious level.

I have been privileged to know Diane for over five years.  During that span, she has never been anything but helpful, loving and compassionate to everyone.  More

I’ve noticed a very worrisome trend in the ongoing “Occupy <X>” movement taking place in the major metropolitan centers. I’m not the first to point out the participation of military veterans such as Veterans for Peace, Oath Keepers, and Iraq Veterans Against the War in the various protests. For the right side of the political spectrum, it is easy to dismiss them as seditious turncoats. Given what passes for the current state of lawful authority, such an opinion may not be unreasonable in the eyes of the right wingers. Meanwhile the left side of the political spectrum continues to eye such participation warily since the veterans represent mercenarius de facto; the hounds leashed by the machine. Again, such an observation may not be without merit. It is not for these reasons, however valid they may be, that I believe such participation by veterans are harbingers of a political paradigm shift. More
