A post on Facebook informs me that Jeff Bezos reaped more than $750million from the Trump handout to the rich at the expense of the poor. Considering he’s considered to be the richest man in America, one wonders how important that questionably-obtained money is to him.
I’m reminded of Alfred Nobel. A newspaper error published a premature obituary of him where he learned he’d be remembered as the man who’d invented dynamite. Ashamed of this legacy, he went on to find redemption in establishing the Nobel Prize.
I think Mr. Bezos has a similar problem. His great wealth could easily have him remembered alongside the likes of John Rockefeller, J P Morgan, and Mr. Walton et al. And, not everyone considers them to be the most likeable of people.
I can’t help but wonder. If he used less than half of that Trump “rich-man’s-bonus” and paid some researches to investigate the Ferromagnetic Generator, after they confirmed my findings, he’d go down in history as the man who ended our dependence on oil and freed the world from the danger of climate change.
Now, wouldn’t that be a legacy? Even Mr. Noble would be proud of him.
I have just finished the final book in my Beneath the Jeweled Moon series. Lots of action. Bit of romance.
The two books; Fire Witch vs Lucifer and Fire Witch vs Lucifer part 2, really go together, although the first had a good ending. But to be nice, I’m making them both available for JUST 99 cents each on Amazon—for a short time.
Here is the Blurb for Part 2:
The demon Lucifer has severed Tanoshi’s connection to her world. Now, as she has no way to find her home planet among the millions in the universe, the devil assumes he’s given her, Haruko, Airi and Kenji, a death sentence.
Their sometimes useful, but often unreliable, friendly angel tells her there’s a world which might give them the secret to getting home. He can’t give them details, but he believes it’s a dangerous place. Their survival will be chancy.
Facing a bleak future, the four travelers decide, danger or not, one chance is better than no chance. Hoping for the best, the small group enters a world on the edge of collapse: The world of the Dragons.
Well, I’ve made my, The Rise and Fall of Synfood series available. It’s now up and ready to go on Amazon. (Only kindle version for most editions; I’m working on it!) They are priced as low as I could get them, just to give my readers a break.
This is a romantic story (With lots of action) set in our very-near future. The underlying theme is how technology is solving our material needs while ignoring our needs as humans. Each book is complete, with an ending, within the overall chronicle. So, if you don’t care to continue, you still get to read a complete story!
Some of the ideas presented may sound a little far out, but they are all based on real technology and physics that are being considered and explored today. All the action, however, is just to keep you entertained. (A good book needs excitement!)

To Synfood series, book 1
The stupidity of the electoral collage system has put our government under the control of the dregs of the oligarchy. We no longer have anyone looking out for our long-term interests. Only greed matters. Facebook posts, twitter exposures, even protest marches have no real effect. The moneyed elite knows, that come election time, their incessant advertisements—based on lies and libels and coupled with gerrymandering and voter suppression, will bring in enough votes to swamp those capable of seeing through their fabrications.
All of this plays out against the backdrop of civilization-destroying climate change. Already the disturbed weather patterns cost billions of dollars every year, and honest scientists assure us it will only get worse. Soon, storms, fires and sea-level rise will create destruction and mass migrations never yet seen in human history.
This strikes me personally because I’ve been unable to attract, or cajole, anyone with influence or technical expertise to examine, and confirm, my research on the Ferromagnetic Generator. I believed this device, capable of turning sunlight into electrical energy with an efficiency high enough to challenge oil and coal, would find some followers in those who seek a better future for their children.
I know I’m just a home-shop inventor with no credentials. But many times in the past, serious changes in science have come from those, like Marie Tharp, Alfred Wegner and the many others who were discounted by those not seen as part of the ‘club.’
We cannot count on this current government to act rationally. Any hope to get through this morass must come from the populace. I keep thinking how cheap electricity, and the electro-hydrogen economy it would create, could empower private citizens and weaken Big Oil’s hold, as well as alleviate the Global Warming debacle.
