Mission Statement - True North is not for everyone


Editor’s Notes

In the spirit of there can be no life without laughter, be sure to read what’s happening in the Court of Judge Wright.

Some may argue about his opinions or his references to sources but no one can argue about the facts Martin D. Weis of Money Market presents in his analyses. Here he is again, pulling no punches on Scary Tuesday at the world’s stock markets.

Further strengthening their own space in the world, Venezuela and Argentina have signed a number of pacts to strengthen their economies. Argentine president Nestor Kirchner says George W.’s attempt to isolate Venezuela will fail. South America is fully on the road to economic and political independence. This happening in Washington’s back yard while the spoiled brat creates a generation of trouble for America in the Middle East.

Meanwhile, Hugo the Harmonious, says Venezuelans who own property don’t have to worry about their property. He says appropriating private property is not part of his Bolivarian Revolution.

China, choking on its own pollution, has declared a major move to develop renewable energy. It has set a target of increasing renewable energy use from the present 10 percent to 20 percent of the total energy consumption by 2020 to meet increasing demand and reduce the greenhouse effect. 

By the way, Mike The Hammer Garvin will reappear Friday, March 2.

Looking forward
