Would you buy a book from this guy?

In February, Energy Secretary Richardson announced the Administration's "Initiatives for Energy Security" based on recommendations from the Department's Oil Emergency Task Force. The initiatives include:

Strategy I: Enhance America's Energy Security
. Federal Royalty Oil for the Strategic Petroleum Reserve
. Commercial Storage in the Strategic Petroleum Reserve

Strategy II: Preserve Domestic Oil and Gas Production Capacity
. Suspension of Production Requirement for Stripper Oil on Federal Lands (Onshore)
. Royalty Relief on Federal Lands
. Petroleum Technology Transfer Council (PTTC) Crisis Assistance to Independents

Strategy III: Lower Costs of Production
. Problem-Solving Technologies for Independent Producers
. Advanced Technologies for Improved Recovery from Endangered Oil Reservoirs
. Energy Efficient Technologies for Oil Production
. On-line Oil and Gas Permitting
. Administrative and Accounting Relief on Federal Lands

Strategy IV: Improve Government Decision making
. Improved Coordination with Other Federal Agencies
. Dialogue with Industry, States, and Congress

Richardson, a former representative from the oil-producing state of New Mexico, has won praise from many millionaires in the oil patch for his attention to the problem.

Recent Past:
New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson reports that instead of drilling 35 gas wells and 70 oil wells in New Mexico's fragile Otero Mesa we could generate the same amount of energy by investing in about 110 wind turbines (EIA CA Natural Gas, Ferguson 2003).

To love one must survive
To survive one must fight!

In the wake of San Francisco's "flower child" era there sprang up groups that were anything but flower children.

As many times as Fat Bill Richardson has told the story of his meeting with Saddam Hussain, I've told the story of me being in the music business.

As a Hippie I used to sell the Berkeley Barb and the Berkeley Tribe newspapers on the streets of San Francisco in front of the Playboy Club in North Beach. In order to make tips I would start to sing, and when someone came by I would stop singing. Putting my hand out I would say, "twenty-five cents and I'll stop singing."

People gave me a dollar.

Does Fat Bill write?

I do not write... I dialogue.

It started with someone coming to my blog site who had Googled "kareen boullosa". Kareen is a regular commentator on the New Mexican's free on-line paper.

Having the name 'Fat Bill and Me' and using gutter language, this site has had hits from Google inquiries for "Governor Bill Richardson" to "fat sex Jewish."

So when I back linked to the search engine page and found...
this fuckin' site that had not only an outrageous post supposedly by Kareen but a whole bunch of heavy crap that John Coventry and other bloggers from the freenewmexican.com had purportly made...It was then that I realized that "Now We Are Talking."
