They stole our money. They stole many of our freedoms. They lied about their motives. They lied about their goals. And still we slept.
If we happened to awaken for a short time and notice the robbers, thieves and liars, we’d squeak and squawk. We’d throw a hissy fit. Occasionally we’d even vote a few of them out of office.

The ratio of omega-3 fats to omega-6 fats has been moving in favor of omega-6s for years in the American diet.

As if Americans aren’t already taxed enough, the healthcare reform bill—or Obamacare bill—being discussed by the Senate contains dozens of new taxes and creates 111 new bureaucracies.
Among the new taxes:

- an additional half percent Medicare (Hospital Insurance) tax on wages in excess of $200,000 ($250,000 for joint filers) beginning in 2013.
- an annual fee on manufacturers and importers of branded drugs beginning in 2010.
- an annual fee on manufacturers and importers of certain medical devices beginning in 2010.
- a reduction by half (to $500,000) the amount of an executive’s compensation that a health plan can deduct from its corporate income taxes beginning in 2013 and a 5 percent excise tax on cosmetic surgery and similar procedures beginning in 2010. (source: Openmarket.org)

During a Republican primary campaign rally at the University of Michigan in October, 2007, Rep. Ron Paul was greeted by supporters who began shouting “End the Fed, end the Fed,” as he began talking about monetary policy.
The cry resonated, and soon the whole crowd had taken up the cheer and some were holding burning dollar bills as if sending a message to the central bank. Almost a year later, at Paul’s counterconvention in Minneapolis, 12,000 people started the chant before Paul even mentioned the Federal Reserve. With that, the title for Paul’s latest book, End the Fed, was written.
