For the past year or more I have had a link to Karl Uppiano’s blog, “Rage Against the Kakistocracy”. Karl’s latest blog has hit a nerve in me and I decided to take it to the top of my fold. Please enjoy Karl’s rage of ‘common sense’, especially as it has immediate relevance to the recent Whatcom County, ‘Progressive’ members call to alarm against the approval of a deep shipping port for coal shipment at Cherry Point.
The members of Futurewise, Re-Sources for a Sustainable Community, and Sustainable Connections, work in tandem and collude to keep Whatcom County as their Kingdom. Their goal is to rule the serfs and tell us how to live our lives sustainably.
Fear not Whatcom County! These non-profit organizations have had their eyes on controlling us completely for a long time. These non-profits use our tax dollars to work against us. Once they’ve gained control of; the Bellingham City Council (oops!, they already do control the BCC), Ferndale, Lynden, Blaine, Everson, Custer, Glacier, Kendall, Sumas, Acme, Concrete, (have I missed any?) and all of Whatcom County, through the election process, it shall be a fate accompli!
So, if I have not been clear enough, it’s time to wake-up, get-up and fight to keep your liberty and freedom through the retention of your private citizen’s and property rights. Their goal is to lock-up and control all private property rights through International treaty recognition and usurpation of your Constitution at the same time. It is your job to become informed and active to guard against and reclaim those rights!
Enjoy Karl’s rage and let me know what you think.

Long Train Running to China Grove
About a year ago, my employer relocated to a new office building. Many of my co-workers have a spectacular view of Bellingham Bay, or the city lights. But being a railroad buff, I chose an office overlooking the main line through Bellingham just across the street. Out my office window, I see passenger trains, freight trains, miscellaneous track maintenance trains and other interesting vehicles.
But the most impressive trains are the coal trains. They usually have five of the largest locomotives, two on one end and three on the other, bracketing about a mile of identical hopper cars, each one heaped to the brim with coal. About five or six of these trains a day (while I'm in the office) head north, fully loaded, and five or six head south, empty. Every day. There may be more while I'm not watching.
I always wondered where that coal was coming from, and where it was going. Intalco? It takes a lot of electricity to smelt aluminum. No, that coal comes from Colorado, is shipped by rail to the lower mainland of British Columbia, where it is loaded onto ships and hauled to China!
Because coal is deemed too "polluting" to be burned in the USA, we use countless gallons of precious liquid petroleum to ship it to China to be burned! I wonder how much coal would be left if they used the energy in the coal itself to haul it to China? This is sheer idiocy! To prevent pollution, we create more pollution to ship it somewhere else to be burned anyway. Doh!
If freedom still rang in this country, we would burn the coal on site, or at least near where it is mined (to generate electricity, or liquefy it for mobile applications). Somehow, we have to get the environmental extremists off our backs and restore some sanity. Our current energy policy is worse than no energy policy.
