Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.



China wants to depend on the fat cats in bed sheets sitting in their silver made (not silver-plated) Mercedes in garages with Swarovski Crystal chandeliers for lights…in their garages!

China has a plan, albeit a long range one.

By 2010 – just two years away, China wants:

1. 10 new oil fields with a reserve of at least 100 million tons

2. 8-10 new gas fields with more than 100 billion Cu m of natural gas

3. 200 large mines with coal, iron, and copper

In 2006, China’s imports of oil made up 45% of domestic consumption.

Domestic crude oil production is growing 1.7% annually.

Domestic crude oil consumption is growing 12.8% annually.

In a few years, if not already, China, the world’s second largest crude oil importer will be looking like America.

America, what’s your plan for independence?
