You think more about these things when you get to be my age.

According to Bloomberg News, the Federal Reserve Bank will not submit to a voluntary public study of its internal structure [...]"
This is a joke right. Geithner is asking the Fed to audit itself? Like they would? Like Geithner already knows they won't. This is just a courtesy request to appease the rest of us.

One way to avoid health care costs is to avoid health care services. Get healthy!
Stop eating crap. Get healthy!
Exercise. Get healthy!
A large portion of health care goes to provide services for those of us likely sick from the food we eat and the way we treat or abuse our bodies.

This debt-based monetary system is a Robber Baron-era structure created by banking oligarchs for their own benefit, not for the American public.
take note that left-wing rallies against the Bush administration were no where near as vocal as current right-wing tea party rallies and were far from effective, not to mention that the so called left leaning mainstream press barely covered them.
considering how left leaning much of the mainstream press is supposed to be, so few showed their so called left leaning posture and protested not a word until it was late in Bush's 2nd term.
the mainstream press doesn't lean in any direction but green... I'm not talking green as in concern for the environment.
money talks louder and with more profit then left or right leaning pundits... do anything to affect the bottom line and you're...
but then left and right viewers are consumers too
find me one news organization with non-partisan pundit and personality commentary and you might get more news.
many of those who are labeled pundits are lobbyists
much of what we hear from any news organization is commentary called news
even when the democratic party won control of the senate in Bush's second term, hardly anything was done to oppose Bush's authority.
I've said it before but its only now becoming apparent that part of this anti-Obama sentiment is racial. it is one of the many elements the right is using to draw anti-Obama sentiment
i do believe Obama is trying to do the right thing, however, he's got a lot of favors to return, a lot of people to satisfy.
sometimes I wonder if a benevolent dictator is what we need, LOL, yeah like one exists, benevolent?
so few without authority who crave it have so little empathy.
so few with empathy and without ego

If by unfortunate chance your home is occupied by a hostile invader and for years you are forced into submission… how would you react?
Yes, Hamas did attack Israel first. Yes, Hamas’ weapons are more sophisticated than ever before and expected to be more so in years to come; their missiles currently capable of hitting critical Israeli targets. Wouldn’t you, after all this time, retaliate when capable against a hostile occupier? I’m sure I would since no one else has stepped up to help.
David Ben Gurion (the first Israeli Prime Minister): "If I were an Arab leader, I would never sign an agreement with Israel. It is normal; we have taken their country. It is true God promised it to us, but how could that interest them? Our God is not theirs. There has been Anti - Semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault ? They see but one thing: we have come and we have stolen their country. Why would they accept that?" Quoted by Nahum Goldmann in Le Paraddoxe Juif (The Jewish Paradox), pp121.
