#2 So an ex-con wants to establish a MASSIVE fund that wont be used for a long, long time and will be no-doubt overseen by him.
Not bad work if you can get it.

Someone's in SKIM heaven with that "fund". But then most of the forced "green" stuff is fraud too.

#8 Redneck Jim---

I did not see waterworld pic, but I suggested putting one of our schools on a barge in NW Alaska, that was subjected to storm surges in the Chukchi Sea.

Doubling population in 20 years, ya say? That's 3.5% per year population increase. Well, what do you do on a low altitude set of small islands besides fish and barbeque?
