Ron Paul's birthday today. Thanks, man! Best wishes!
Latest Audit the Fed numbers are 282 cosponsors in the House (easily enough for a pass), 23 in the Senate (getting dang close). And if we didn't have that ridiculous poseur and most likely severely compromised buffoon in charge of the financial services committee (the man is an economic moron, let's be "Frank" about that), along with the bulk of one side of the aisle being "hesitant" (what are they afraid of? That the US public will get the full skinny on all the who, what, when, where and whys that lead to the financial crisis? Oh the horrors! What happened to the "transparency" promise?) maybe we could get a vote on it and get on the way to some reality based constructive change. We still have a chance to blow all this economic crap, all these high level crimes and misdemeanors, out of the water and have a true peaceful but effective revolution and a return to a true wealth producing economy with a much sounder buck.
There are no downsides to eliminating the fraud and abuse in the system, and it starts with the mother of all economic frauds and abuses, the Fed.
