    Bill before the US Congress  :- This Bill is currently before the US Congress and proposes the creation of $2 trillion free of both debt and taxation. The US Constitution allows Congress the power to mint coins and fix their value, and this Bill if passed, will create two $1 trillion coins and sell then to the Reserve Bank  to fund a debit card for every citizen, allowing each to withdraw $2,000 monthly for the duration of the pandemic lockdown. A press release, the Bill itself, a radio item and a video help to explain it.

    5th Symphony in C Minor

    There is a speculation that Beethoven’s disappointed expectations for great things from Napoleonian’s France, and his hopes and despair for a triumph of the human spirit inspired this. It is certainly a dramatic march of the human spirit through dark places. It sounds like a troubled though inevitably triumphant victory for truth to those who can hear it. A 36 minute presentation.
