Murder by suicide: Kenneth Trentadue "suicide" in Oklahoma prison cell

I just heard an interview with Jesse Trentadue, one of the few attorneys I respect.  He sued the government and WON $1.1 million for emotional distress and after years of appeals, they finally sent the check.  Now Trentadue is offering a $250,000 reward for information leading to a murder conviction.

My food related Trado wish list

Items that I've ordered online and would love to see offered by Trado merchants:

  • Seeds (veggies, herbs) that will grow in the desert (hot, dry) and indoors in winter.
  • plants

NO GM seeds or food.

ORGANIC FOODS - FAIR TRADE

Merchant Account BENEFITS (updated1/29/09)

The # 1 Merchant benefit:

  • Sales! Sales! SALES!

At a time when many small businesses are hurting because people don't have the money to purchase, verified Trado members will get periodic Trado deposits to spend on products they would NOT be able to afford.

Why start Trado instead of supporting another local currency?

As I've been posting at various forums and sites about complementary currencies, I'm frequently explaining why I decided to start Trado.

In 2008, I spent at least 100 hours searching the web for complementary currencies.

NONE of these other currencies invited me to join!

They treated me like a leper because I don't live in their elitist community.

Learning from the current economic crisis

Lesson one: Capitalism's main failure is that of distributing all the wealth (goods and services) it can and wants to create. This means that there is no problem of production. The failure lies in distribution and, i. e. the market's inability to recognise "demand" that is not backed by money, or other forms of purchasing power.

A very nice Drupal community site

http://couleeregiononline.com/forum A very nice community site! The site has almost everything I'm looking for, even a merchant listing with ratings. I'd like to have at least one menu on the top and that would really help the front page.
