The News Most Vital to Americans


FOOD FOR THOUGHT: We now have enough subscribers to support if every subscriber to this mailing list donated $1 per month! If we doubled the size of our list it would only take $0.50 per week. Being financed to this point would mean that TvNewsLIES could pay for its overhead and any money over this amount could go towards hiring reporters and expanding the new radio program. It would also allow TvNewsLIES could repay my original investment so that I can do things like pay the rent and buy food! Just something to think about.

Support us with a simple click of the mouse!: If every subscriber to this site clicked on some of the text ads on the news page we would probably earn enough advertising revenue to keep going without donations!

SHOP WITH US! – If you use our links on the side of the news page when you shop at your favorite online stores we receive revenue from the online shops and it costs you nothing!

TVNL Editor's Comments: As California Burns and Georgia Thirsts, the US Government & Big Business (real estate developers in this case) Share Some Blame

I recently rebuild one of the bathrooms in my condo. I did a great deal of research prior to purchasing the fixtures. I have always been very careful to consider the environment when I make any purchases that may have an environmental impact. In the case of my bathroom I stumbled upon two technologies that could save a great deal of water, both related to the commode (toilet).

New toilets today are available that can save water in two ways. First off there is the simple dual flush system. This is a simple system where a second flush lever is available for flushes that require less water. One flush is a standard 1.6 gallon flush that we find in most commodes in the U.S.. The second flush is a lighter 1.0 gallon flush that we normally find in urinals, where less water is required to do the trick.

The next little technology is called pressure assisted flushing. This is where a tank inside the commode stores water that is pressurized by the water pipes that fill it. The result of this pressure is apparent once you flush the unit. To put it bluntly hardly a person reading this had never encountered a situation where more than one flush is required to complete the job. Well let me tell you this, you would hardly find a job that require a second flush from these pressure assisted commodes.

Now why am I bringing this up and what does it have to do with California, Georgia & the U.S. Government? It is all about the laws and it is all about our dwindling water supply! As I did my research I found out that the dual flush commodes are required by law in nations like China, Australia and Israel. Yet there is pressure in the US to keep this technology quiet because it would costs builders and landlords more money. Again, we have an example of American values. The only thing that matters is money. That's it. Nothing else, not even drinking water or water to put out fires!

I paid almost $400 for one of these commodes when I redid my bathroom. I could have had a fancy one piece commode for less than $100 but I chose to save water for my condo, my city and my fellow human beings. I also purchased a Gerber brand commode because it is the only commode that is still made in America. Call me silly for writing this and call me silly for picking this uncomfortable topic to write about, but every little bit helps. And if every American would save a few gallons of water each day places like Atlanta would not be in a state of emergency as they watch their watter supply vanish. And if we had a real news media our government may actually be forced to protect the people instead of just the people who own them! Think about it! Jesse Richard – Editor,

PERSONAL NOTE UPDATE: For the many people who have written me asking what has been going on...I will be writing a personal blog piece on what I have been going through. I think you will find it interesting and quite informative taking into account all I have learned from the experience.

Getting the CT scan results tomorrow. Still able to do regular updates to the news page but the newsletter is still a struggle right now. I'll get it out as often as I can.

Thank you for understanding,

NOTE: You can respond to my daily comments on my blog, located here:
