A while after I'd written that I felt bad for "disrespecting' our symbol of nation and what it represents.

It is really not funny that someone could sell our country out from under us and in a 'yard sale' at that...(at least it was back to our own people:))...

I am really concerned about what is happening in Washington. I have never seen, heard or known a President to ask a CEO to step down. Is he judging his abilbity to lead the company, and using bail-out money to "black mail" him...(I know imaginations can go wild...)..But, when something happens that is so out of the ordinary, one wonders and looks for a reason..

ha. Hey by the way, I appreciate the truth-o-meter you have on the side. I try not to get too steeped in and taken up with the news, as I could spend hours and hours in it, time I don't have (for it). I do get more than tired of all of this.

Recently read Os Guinness's "A Case for Civility." Really a powerful book on America and on the crisis we see now, I think.

Thanks! I like the Truth-O-Meter as well. It is somewhat discouraging, however, to see how often politicians from both parties play fast and loose with the truth.

I have not yet read "A Case for Civility" but Os Guiness is first rate.

In light of the present financial crisis, it's interesting to read what Thomas
Jefferson said in 1802:

'I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than
standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control
the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and
corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all
property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers
