I do not label myself a liberal. As being a student of political philosophy, I have understood one thing for sure, that you can't entirely label a person's whole gamut of thoughts and opinions about everything under the sun into one segment and say he or she belongs to this stream of thought. A person's thought might suggest colours of one division in a whole continuum more than that of another, but to rule out completely would be making a slight error in judgment.
There are liberal conservatives and conservative liberals; hence there goes the mixing of ideas. It is only for the sake of debate that tags are put on issues and said that they are of concern or importance to one group or certain groups more than to some others. That if approached with this or that political or social ideal, we can solve the matter.
Even starting within a single premise in a whole structure of a complete theory, ideas do build up and develop in ways that are confusing as to where they should exactly belong.
If anything, I call myself a free-thinker, opened to ideas and possibilities. This very notion makes anyone a liberal. Now, what conservative would not say the same thing? It is merely the words that limit and trap our actual thoughts, sometimes conveying what we really think and feel and sometimes denying us the very function they are meant for.
To a question of whether liberal thinking is a panacea for all ills of human society, I would say, we should not hurry in becoming secure in an assumption that liberal thought is the very thing to give all answers and solutions. This very process of "thesis and antithesis" and then generating some synthesis is a method that has granted us progress, both in economics and structural sense. At the end of the day, we are all humans, whether we belong to any spectrum of political ideals. We tend to deal with issues keeping our moral and spiritual beliefs along with our civic and rational approaches intact, so that we remain ideological beings, regardless of what ideology we conform to. The very struggle of doing what "ought" to be done makes us humans and sometimes the struggle is what is it is that ought to be done which then creates contest of solving issues.
I don't label myself a liberal or put myself in particular with any stream of thought, because aim is to give get solutions and put them on work. It is merely for debating and "political means" to garner any discussion on this thought is right and should be applied or that one would do.
To answer whether liberal thought can solve issues, I would say moderation would be good between both sides of the continuum and things should be dealt with as they come of, and not with any politically structured approach. Because essentially as humans, we have an instinct to do what we feel and think is right and that comfort of feeling and thinking can come from any approach.I do not label myself a liberal.

Above, Dr. Burzynski and his cure with antineoplastons: http://burzynskimovie. com/
The first scene is heartbreaking!
Science is knowledge that comes from trial and error, knowledge is a tool we can use to build and create solutions.
No matter how knowledgeable we are about something, as long as we keep looking in the wrong direction, our energy and time will be waisted, and a solution won't be found.
For so many years we thought the main cause of stomach ulcers to be stress and/or spicy food. This, until somebody rediscovered that the main cause was a bacteria called Helicobacter Pylori.
A Greek practitioner was actually the first one in 1958 to treat ulcers with antibiotics and approach this infection differently than anybody else. More than thirty years treating patients with medicines that only took care of symptoms, appalling isn't?
I stumbled upon Dr. Tullio Simoncini's possible cure to cancer, and could not believe how different and original his approach to this disease was and is. He thinks that cancer is a FUNGUS!
Let me make this clear now, I do not know if this cure actually works, if this theory is correct, what fascinates me about it, is his APPROACH just like in the example above regarding stomach ulcers.
I believe that the approach is more important than the thinking itself. It's where we direct our thinking that counts the most. All the thinking that comes after that, is just a consequence of that premise/direction assigned; nobody could explain this better than Aristotele.
It's syllogism or more exactly deductive reasoning.
Also, I would like to mention Einstein:
"We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.",
"To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science."
Said this, I, with the help of my team thought of putting together the main alternative theories and cures to cancer. We are presenting the ones that seem to have actually cured many people, that have many witnesses and approval from many experts.
We are presenting these with videos and at times we only explain its concepts.
After you watch and read about these alternative cures, we invite YOU to decode cancer. More precisely, we invite you to be inspired, and whether or not you have scientific knowledge or an educational background, we would like you to focus on common sense and your own creativity to deduct a conclusion.
Take all this information into account and try to find a thread that runs among these theories, some kind of unifying theory, a pattern, the one factor that connects these cures/theories together. Once that is discovered, assuming these cures work, we would steer science to look further into that and research upon it for an ultimate cure/solution to cancer.
We will send the conclusions that make most sense to the Doctors that came up with these theories in the hope to eradicate this terrible disease.
Open your mind, do not judge the correctness of any of these theories but instead its new perspectives. After all, that is how Einstein got to think of the Universe as no one else before.
We all need to focus on this if we want to solve the problems of our world.
This is where all cures and solutions lie.
Watch all other videos at the link, please suggest any other main alternative cures or important pieces of information.
Then, connect the dots and start decoding cancer!

Even if the planet doubled the amount of solar and wind power available tomorrow, there would still be a shortage of clean electricity. We need to grab energy from wherever we can find it, which is why piezoelectricity—the charge that gathers in solid materials like crystal and ceramic in response to strain—has recently begun to pique the interest of entrepreneurs and scientists alike. A number of materials are piezoelectric, including topaz, quartz, cane sugar, and tourmaline. That means a charge begins accumulating inside these materials when pressure is applied. http://www.makeahistory.com/index.php/your-details/30439-electricity-generating-dance-floors-and-piezoelectric-roadwaysEven if the planet doubled the amount of solar and wind power available tomorrow,... more

On July 4th, Americans are supposed to celebrate their independence. We may no longer have to worry about a greedy, distant monarch. But our country is still held in thrall to powerful interests that prize profit over individuals and their freedom—the energy industry comes to mind. As Jason Mark puts it at AlterNet:
“We’re in an abusive relationship and unable to leave our abuser. The plight of the people in Louisiana proves the point. Louisianans have been punched in the face by the hand that feeds them, and yet their biggest worry is that the oil and gas industry is going to walk out the door and leave them.”
Where’s the love?
It’s clear that BP, for instance, isn’t playing carefully with our country or its resources. At Mother Jones, David Corn relates the latest example of the company’s callousness. Its recovery plan had no stipulations about handling even a small storm like the one that stopped clean-up this week. It did, however, include plans to save sea life that hasn’t lived in the Gulf for millions of years. As Corn put it, the company was “prepared for walruses, not prepared for hurricanes.”
The biggest problem, of course, is that BP wasn’t prepared to handle a blow-out to begin with. The leak has gone on for so long that governmental officials are now taking unprecedented measures to protect the wildlife most vulnerable to its effects. Beth Buczynski reports at Care2 that official are going to dig up about 700 sea turtle nests on Alabama and Florida beaches that are at risk from the oil.
“Once the eggs have hatched, the young turtles will be released in darkness on Florida’s Atlantic beaches into oil-free water,” she writes. “Translocation of nests on this scale has never been attempted before.”
No matter how badly these companies treat us, it seems we can’t get rid of them. Take Halliburton. The company has latched its talons into the country and will not let go. It is second only to BP in shouldering responsibility for the Deepwater Horizon spill. As Jason Mark reports for the Earth Island Journal, just before the oil spill, Halliburton took over Boots & Coots, a company that deals with oil-well blowouts; that company now has a contract with BP to help with the relief well.
“Halliburton is essentially making money from causing the accident and then helping to repair it,” Mark writes. “Halliburton’s many-fingered tentacles is just the latest illustration of how powerful the company is.”
Washington isn’t strong enough to fight back against that sort of corporate power. Over the past year, energy interests have whittled down the climate change legislation to a tepid half-step. Right now it looks most likely that a bill that passes will regulate only the utilities sector.
“We believe we have compromised significantly, and we’re prepared to compromise further,” Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) told Politico this week after a White House meeting on the bill.
“If you’re looking for the sorry state of American energy politics distilled into one line, there it is,” writes Jonathan Hiskes at Grist. “Kerry fights harder for clean energy than just about any national politician.”
Still, if anything passes the Senate, Washington will celebrate. As Aaron Wiener explains at the Washington Independent, “For all the disappointment among environmentalists over the repeated compromises Democrats have made on climate legislation to win over moderates, some argue that a utilities-only cap would achieve most of the goals of an economy-wide carbon pricing scheme. The question now is whether Democratic leaders in the Senate can muster 60 votes for even a weakened bill to overcome a Republican filibuster.”
Our friends abroad
On an international level, our governing bodies might be doing a better job, but not by much. Inter Press Service reports that the countries at the meeting promised to scale back taxpayer subsidies of fossil fuels. Even that promise is limited, however. “Countries agree to phase out “inefficient fossil fuel subsidies” but each country decides what those are,” IPS reports. “Some countries like Japan, Australia, Italy and others have already said they don’t have any.”
And at Earth Island Journal, Ron Johnson heard a different story.
Johnson spoke to Kim Carstensen, who leads the World Wildlife Fund’s Global Climate Initiative, who compared this meeting’s report to that of the last G20 summit and found that climate issues had dropped off the radar. “There were eight references to clean energy in the final report from Pittsburgh (the last G20 Summit) and they have been completely vacuum cleaned,” he said. “That is kind of scary.”
In situations like this, it takes massive pressure from outside to move the political apparatus forward. At AlterNet, Heetan Kalan has some ideas about how to progress—reach beyond the environmental community; enlist “doctors, nurses, public health officials and patients speaking out about the connection between consumers of coal energy and their immediate health concerns.” Kalan writes:
“After all, climate change is not solely an environmental problem — it is a human/planetary problem. If we are going to rely on a small base of environmentalists to carry us through this crisis, we are in trouble. Our spokespeople on this issue have to come from a wide spectrum of citizens and leaders.”
Certainly, they have to come from somewhere, and as Steve Benen writes at The Washington Monthly, whoever is speaking on this issue now, they’re not speaking loud enough.
“Lawmakers aren’t facing much in the way of public pressure,” he writes. “The polls look encouraging, suggesting the public is inclined to back the Democratic proposals, but that support hasn’t translated into aggressive advocacy — phone calls to lawmakers’ offices, letter-writing campaigns, district meetings, sizable rallies, etc….If engaged constituents want more, Congress will have to feel considerably more heat than they are now.”
In other words, if America wants to be free of coal, oil, gas, and the energy industry, we’re going to have to fight for it.

It’s been nearly seven weeks since oil from BP’s deep-ocean Macondo well began gushing into the Gulf of Mexico. Over that time, the public has, understandably, become increasingly frustrated with industry and government efforts to prevent damage to wildlife and wetlands. There is the growing sense — reflected in last week’s discussion of using nuclear weapons to stop the leak and a viral video about using hay to sop up the mess — that somehow, somewhere there are more innovative and effective measures for containing and cleaning up the oil.
But I can tell you, based on 21 years’ experience analyzing and observing oil spills, that the best minds in the business are already doing all they can. No special techniques that would work well to clean up the oil in this situation aren’t being tried or planned. There simply are no foolproof solutions.
Once oil spills into water, responders must race against time and the forces of physics, chemistry and biology to minimize the harm to life in the sea and on land. Oil spreads quickly into a hair-thin sheen and begins to evaporate, dissolve and travel with the winds and currents. Strategies to chemically disperse the oil, vacuum it away, sponge it up, burn it or divert it from especially sensitive areas all have their benefits — and their drawbacks.
So decisions about how to respond to a disaster of this magnitude involve evaluating the tradeoffs and the net long-term benefits to the environment. Efforts to spare marsh birds may hurt fish; a wetland may be protected, but only by diverting oil to a sandy beach; attempts to clean up the oil may involve trampling marshes or polluting the air.
The best strategy, of course, is to prevent spills in the first place. The second best strategy is to do everything possible to clean them up. And that seems to be what is happening.
The chart below summarizes the various cleanup efforts being undertaken or proposed in the gulf and along the coast.

THIS IS MY SOLUTION FOR SEALING THE BP OIL LEAK
Please note: This rod is approximately 20 to 25 feet long and quite heavy. The diameter is just under 2 feet right below the ball valve.
This image has been updated on 06/12/2010. The initial image is below in a following entry
If British Petroleum does decide to cut the "Blowout Preventer," that is just above the well, this will expose the raw shaft into the well. It is vertical without any bends or debris and this will give them a straight shot down the well. This metal rod is telescoped in design so that it is smaller on the tip and gradually graduated into a larger diameter. The final diameter is fairly close tolerance to that of the well pipe. This end, (the top), of the metal rod has a series of O-rings or seals that will assist in sealing the final stage but it is the tight tolerance of the final diameter that will actually accomplish the seal. The top of the rod will basically have an oversize head on it so it will stop the rod from descending any further down the well than is desired. The rod I have shown is tapered or telescoped so it will allow the oil pressure to bypass the rod initially upon insertion. Once it has entered the pipe, the weight of the rod is more than adequate to overcome any of the oil pressures being exerted as it is approximately 20 to 25 feet long, and about 21 inches in diameter at the sealing end. The well pipe will guide the rod accordingly down the throat due to the telescoping shape of the rod. Once it bottoms out against the head and the top of the fresh cut pipe, the seal will be complete. The well will be plugged permanently but the rod still has the ability to be removed if needed.
The rod can be made of stainless steel or whatever is best for this application. It can be solid or if desired it can be hollow for the purpose of still pumping oil. The ring on top would still need to be present for any continued modifications or repairs. A ball valve would need to be implemented into the design as shown in the diagram and a series of in-flow ports would need to be added along the lower extremities of the rod for the oil to enter and flow through the rod. It would be a good idea to have two ball valves, (not shown), one on top of the other in case of failure of one or the other.
If the rod is hollow, then it needs to be longer so the loss in weight would be regained. The weight needs to be sufficient to force the rod into the well pipe and cause it to seat. This would seal the well as there would be no place for the oil to find a by-pass.
I have other solutions that will work if the decision is to plug the up-riser and the pipe that has currently been the focus.
