you should check out the latest entry on linh dinh's blog, state of the union:
linh dinh is always an entertaining writer, but he's been doing his homework and this time he hits one out of the park! the US way of life is enabled by this wretched creation of the banks called the FED. with it we're profligate, arrogant wastrels. without it, the US might have been a nation that could live up to its ideals. just don't look for it to happen at this late date, and forget rick perry's lame protestations. all these politicians are creatures of the system.
