The “Fiscal Cliff” and why you should read “The Future Teller”

When I wrote “The Future Teller” there was no talk about the “Fiscal Cliff”. However, the message in “The Future Teller” was all about being prepared for the crash. Unfortunately, too few have read the message, and no one is building OsumPODS. As the author of “The Future Teller”, I would be the logical person to start building prototypes, but I’m afraid I don’t have the energy or the money. The first OsumPODS are going to be quite expensive until […]

Better in some ways. I like my work. It’s honest. I don’t write […]

The Future Teller, a hope for sanity

The world may seem pristine in many places we visit, but appearances don’t always show the true picture.

We worry about climate change, and although global warming is probable, it’s hardly the issue it’s made out to be. The real killer is chemicals, and all the little byproducts that end up in landfills, in streams and rivers, in the soil and air, and eventually in […]

Trek to the Future

The future is perilous and uncertain. We are destroying our environment. Without change, man may face extinction. Trek to the Future looks to logic and truth to be man’s salvation. Slideshow Text: Without a future there is no sense in our existence! Enlightenment is the true hope for all tomorrows, where wisdom will grow from logic and truth, then knowledge and common sense will be our guiding beacons! The future will demand we face reality, where independence will be the […]
