A bit about the book and Janet’s story:
“In the year 2000, an out of work reporter is approached by a man who is not whom he appears to be. Lured into a romantic affair with him, the reporter is soon to lose everything-her family, her home, her country and nearly her life. EXILE is the true story of Janet Phelan, who fled the US after the attempts to permanently silence her went awry. The lengths to which the intelligence community will go to cover their tracks is revealed in this memoir. The ultimate question-what is the meaning behind this grave assault on an American citizen-unfolds as the story is told.

So now I’m a Commissioner …

So somebody asked me, “Bill, what’s it feel like, now that you’re actually serving on an official county committee?”

Good question, and I hope my answer can encourage others to do the same, become a small but real part of our local government. I really hope to see other Greens get onto committees in their counties, fire districts, cities, etc. If we can show our commitment on citizen advisory committees, maybe the public will trust us more when our members run for elected offices.

The solution is that our government needs to take back the power to issue money and begin to gradually issue debt free money.
