Personal Liberty Digest™
My father, David Root, was a blue-collar butcher. But he was wise beyond his economic status in life. His wisdom of 40 years ago is still timely and points to the reasons for our economic crisis and decline today. A recent incident sums up everything wrong with the U.S. economy under Barack Obama.
How large a soda people in New York can legally buy is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to infringing on American’s personal liberty. The real behemoth below the waterline has been built by President Barack Obama and the first lady.
After graduating law school, I began my practice with a firm in New Orleans in the late 1970s, and I was soon sent to Puerto Rico, a hotbed of union activity. I got my first taste of fighting unions there, and I learned they played for keeps when another labor lawyer was shot outside his hotel.

Imagine if George W. Bush (a Republican conservative) were presiding over 89 million able-bodied, working-age Americans who were not working, what would the media be saying? Would the media trumpet a “recovery?” Never in a million years.
The stock market is on a cliff. When it falls, it will not only erase the riches on Wall Street but your hard-earned savings. It is called deflation, and it will impact all of us. I have a pretty good idea about stock market crashes because I have experienced four of them.
North Korea has the potential to become a trigger point for multiple economic catastrophes, and there are people in this world who would be happy to use such crises to serve their own interests.
Most Americans by far believe that just because several generations have escaped war and famine in the American homeland, they will never suffer hunger and cold. Who do you know in America who has ever shivered in the dark, hungry? Well, it is a threat in our present world.
