The Economy

Some things we know for certain are the Absolute Truth about the Economy, and not just someone's Opinion:

1 If you Tax something, you suppress it.

2 If the Government Runs something, it is far less efficient!

3 It takes money to run a business and hire employees.

4 Taxes take away the jobs, and the money needed to pay employees.

5 Taxes take away profits needed to grow businesses

6 Taxes force many businesses to close, putting people out of work

7 Taxes Violently suppress the Economy and reduce revenues to Governmrnt

8 Taxes severely reduce the money needed for people and businesses to buy goods and services

9 Reducing Taxes has ALWAYS boosted the Economy and Jobs

10 A reduction of All Eaxes by 10% across the board causes a Drastic increase in Federal and
State revenues within two years!

11 We know for Certain how to fix the problem, but politics stand in the way

12 High Taxes and High Fuel & Energy costs caused the worldwide Economic Crisis.

13 If we do not VOTE carefully, We will make the problem worse, instead of better

14 People running for Office most certainly do LIE in their Adds, no matter how good they

15 Government has only ONE LEGITIMATE JOB,... That is to protect the People! That is All!

16 All taxes are taken by force, from those who worked for it, and earned it!

17 Tax money blongs to the people it came from, Not the government.

18 "Redistributing the Wealth" Means takeing money from those who earned it, and those who create Jobs and giving it to those who did not work for it, and do not create jobs.

19 Corporations and Businesses Create Jobs, Not people on welfare, and certainly not government programs!

Bird Watchers


If you love to watch and listen to chirping of all sorts of beautiful birds, you came to the right place! I have learned more about birds in the last 12 months than I had learned in the last 57 years. I have come to the conclusion that most people are too busy these days to stop and enjoy the very special gifts of nature that God has given us.

Attracting Birds is easy! If you don't have a wide variety of birds of every kind and color right in your own back yard, you probably haven't done anything to attract them. It is so easy that anyone can be a serious Bird Watcher. Most birds have certain seasons when the congregate in larger flocks. I have had flocks of humming birds so thick that I literaly stood in the doorway with a humming bird feeder in one hand, and a camera in the other, taking close up photos while the humming birds literaly drank from my hand. It helps to stand in a shadow with your hand holding the feeder is extended into full sun light.

Gold Finches by the dozens! All you need to know about attracting flocks of beautiful black and yellow American Gold Finches is two words ... "THISTLE SEED" ... You can buy a simple tube feeder, which usually come with changeable feeding ports. For finches, install the tiny thistle ports which only allow one tiny seed at a time to be pulled out. Fill the Finch feeder with black thistle seed. The feeder and thistle seed ar available at any pet shop or Wal-Mart store.

Identify the birds you see! Go to this web site to See and Hear the bird calls of the birds you see in your yard.

to see and hear the experience of almost every back yard bird in North America.

Ballot Language Challenged

Cures Without Cloning is challenging the Missouri Secretary of State in court because the ballot title she certified for the Cures Without Cloning Initiative is inaccurate and misleading. "Journalists who disagree with us are even criticizing Robin Carnahan’s outrageous actions." Click Here to see actual ballot wording

Cures Without Cloning says "The Secretary of State has been willfully negligent in her duty to write a ballot summary that is “in the form of a question using language neither intentionally argumentative nor likely to create prejudice either for or against the proposed measure.” We believe her actions are so blatantly prejudicial the court will find the current title invalid and certify a fair and accurate ballot title. During litigation, we continue to train thousands of volunteer petition circulators across the state so we will be prepared to move quickly when the court decision is announced.

Ethanol Fuels

Ethanol Fuels

America must reduce her dependence on foreign oil sources.
Regardless of what the future holds, Ethanol is readily available now. FFV or Flexible Fuel Vehicles are also readily available. 85% Ethanol in Columbia, Mo. is routinely $ .40 - $ .50 lower at the pump than the cost of 87 Octane Unleaded Regular. That means if Unleaded is $ 2.59 gallon, then E85 is only $2.09 a gallon. If you fill up at 30 gallons of E85, you put $ 15.00 Cash back in your wallet every time you fill up. If you get 10 gallons of E85, you put $ 5.00 cash back in your wallet! To find an E85 station, or see all of the E85 fueling locations nationwide, go to:

In Nebraska alone, ethanol production capacity already surpasses one billion gallons per year. With new Ethanol plants like the one at Ladonia, Mo. coming on line, and all of the major auto manufacturers doubling their production of Flexible Fuel Vehicles in 2007 alone, Ethanol is a good choice, not for the future, but right now!

Ethanol is environmentally friendly, and can be made from corn. It burns cleaner than petroleum fuels, and is produced right here in the USA. An vehicle must be specifically designed to run on E85, but you can buy them from any Auto dealer in America, if you specifically ask for a FFV. To choose a FFV that runs on E85 Click on link below, or go to
Daimler Chrysler
General Motors

E85 is a blend of Ethanol 85% and unleaded gasoline 15% . FFV's are formulated to adjust between any combination of ethanol and gasoline from pure unleaded to 85% ethanol, so you can fill up with either E85, or gasoline, or any combination, but what would happen if, instead of making flexible fuel engines, we built engines optimized to run only on pure E85?

Campaign to Prohibit All Human Cloning
in Missouri Launched Today!

(Released August 22, 2007)

A coalition of concerned Missouri citizens, doctors, and academics today launched the "Cures Without Cloning" initiative to prohibit human cloning in Missouri. Dr. Lori Buffa, of St. Peters, Missouri, filed proposed ballot language with the Secretary of State's office this morning. (Received Wednesday August 22, 2007)

"The Missouri Constitution currently allows for human cloning. It allows for the same cloning method that created Dolly the Sheep," said Dr. Buffa, who serves as chair of CWC. "This initiative will ensure this dangerous, unproven, unnecessary practice is prohibited, and allow us to focus on safe research that leads to lifesaving cures and treatments."

The initiative would amend the Missouri Constitution to prohibit the practice of human cloning, and would prohibit taxpayer funding of human cloning experiments. {click here to read the initiative}.

Missourians Against Human Cloning and Concerned Women for America wholeheartedly support this short, straightforward, scientifically accurate amendment for the following reasons:

1. The Cures Without Cloning Initiative will close the cloning loophole that
currently exists in our Missouri Constitution.

2. The Cures Without Cloning Initiative will ensure that none of our tax dollars
can be spent on human cloning experiments.

3. The Cures Without Cloning Initiative will allow researchers in our state to
focus on the many avenues of ethical research that provide real cures and
treatments and real hope for those suffering from diseases.

The Initiative does NOT:
1. prohibit Stem Cell Research – this is not a stem cell issue, it is a human
cloning issue

2. stop the search for cures and treatments to alleviate suffering

3. repeal Amendment 2

I hope that each of you will join in supporting this important initiative. It is not enough to file an initiative. Once the ballot title is certified by the Secretary of State, all of us who support this initiative will need to circulate petitions and secure the signatures to place this important legislation before the voters in 2008.

Since this is a citizens’ initiative, we will need every citizen to participate! Trainings are being set up in every county regarding circulating the petitions for signatures. Signatures will be gathered in a variety of places: churches, neighborhoods, individuals contacting family and friends, etc. Volunteers will be able to participate in whatever venues they are most comfortable. Gathering signatures must be done according to the specifications of the Secretary of State, and must be done only by those who are registered to do so.

The goal is to collect at least 200,000 signatures with a volunteer effort. This will take all of us working together to spread the word across our state. Please sign up today to help with this important effort.

Warning! If, or when, challenged in court, Ammendment 2 will not hold up, because it's entire wording was not published in the newspapers of every county, as required by Missouri law on an intiative vote to ammend the constitution. Let Us not make that same mistake! Along with our grass roots push for a contitutional ammendment with teeth, let's make sure that local efforts include getting the complete wording of the ammendment published in as many local newspapers as possible.
Ammendment 2 can, and likely will eventually be stricken down, as it did not meet the requirements of a constitutional initiative!
I would like for this one to be a little more stable. When challenged about Ammendment 2, a judge would have to either strike down Ammendment 2, or rule that all of the other provisions of the Missouri Constitutions have no power or meaning either, as the Missouri Constitution requires that the full wording must be published in two newspapers in each county of the state to have a valid vote. The constitution specifies that the last time the entire wording appears in the local paper, it must be less than 15 days before the election to be a valid vote. READ THE CONSTITUTION at your public library. Make sure our initiative is valid and legal, so it can't be struck down so easily.

President Bush Did Not Veto Stem Cell Research

The absolute truth is that president Bush did Not veto stem cell research. Whether intentional or out of ignorance, people are being mislead. In fact the president along with almost 100% of the population of the United States supports and encourages scientific and medical research into the use of stem cells in medical treatments and cures. Today more than 70 therapies and treatments using stem cells and the stem cell research are already in use.

What the president vetoed was the cloning and killing of human life to produce embryo stem cells. You see absolute truth and accuracy matters! The truth is that the president, and most people who actually are informed and understand the stem cell issue, believe it is morally unacceptable to breed or clone human life to use as spare parts. The thing that makes the issue even more clear is the fact that embryo stem cells are well known to true scientists and medical researchers to offer no promise of any useful research. To date no treatments or cures have been derived from embryo stem cells, and because of their nature, there probably never will. One person put it like this: "We are more likely to derive cures and therapies from doing research on dirty towels in the next 500 years, than we are from embryo stem cells."

More than 70 useful treatments and therapies are in use today, and all of them were derived from what is called adult stem cells. Adult stem cells are harvested from bone marrow, umbilical cords and sources that do not require cloning human life, and do not require the destruction of human life. Adult stem cells promise treatments and cures; embryo stem cells do not.

The real issue is a moral one. President Bush is aware of the difference between Adult and embryo stem cells, but the real issue is that it is not acceptable to create and destroy human life, no matter how promising the research might be.

The absolute truth is President Bush vetoed the cloning and killing of human life to harvest a special kind of stem cells called embryo stem cells, which are of no use in medical research anyway. He did not veto all stem cell research, and like almost all of us he supports the ongoing and useful research using adult stem cells. Unfortunately the legislature is either uninformed on this issue, or some of them may be intentionally lieing to the public. Likewise the public news media could be intentionally misleading the people by saying the president vetoed stem cell research, or they also may just be ignorant and uninformed. We all have the responsibility to seek out the absolute truth, and be accurate in the information we present.

Community Peace Forum

Community Peace Forum
You may wish to get copies of the Community Peace Forum to present at your church, club, or group:

DVD videos are now ready. Send your request for a copy to or write to Peace Forum, c/o John Hunter Box 306 Auxvasse, MO 65231. Be sure to leave your mailing address and contact information. An E-mail address is the best way to contact us.

In case you were not there, Community Peace Forum is an exploration of the
possibilities for peace in our world today. A Christian theologian, an Islamic
Scholar, a U.S. military Chaplain, and a Quaker inspirational speaker explore
various and often conflicting views of peace in our world , especially the
Middle East and Iraq, from the view of faith communities, morality, and
ethics. Instead of a political or military strategy format, Community Peace
forum asks the question what is the right thing to do, and why?

Presenting more questions than answers, this is an opportunity to hear and
explore every one's ideas about peace.

The DVD is a very involved two hour provocative presentation of several opposing views of how to approach peace from a moral and religious point of view.

If we are ever able to provide an edited one hour highlights version, without ruining the flavor and content, we will post the information right here. You may wish to get the full two hour DVD, and edit yourself to fit your church or organization's one hour time limit. After watching the entire presentation, you may wish to plan a special two hour program, so you don't lose the integrity of the forum.

At this time, printed transcripts and sound CD's are not available. If these become available in the future, you will find all of the information right here on will be posted on this site. We have not charged for the copies yet, but if the demand grows, we will have to start recovering the costs in the future.
