God Button Home DepotToday’s news shares a disturbing story of a man who was FIRED from his job at Home Depot for wearing a pin—a pin which he’d been wearing every day for over a year. What horrible message did this pin convey? It’s an American flag with says “One Nation Under God, Indivisible.” Horrific, right?

What’s horrific is that Home Depot fired the man because he refused to remove it and replace it with their store sanction pin which states “United We Stand.”  Kind of hypocritical don’t you think? Unless this guy is “united” with the anti-religious and anti-patriotic stand of Home Depot he loses his livelihood!

What concerns me most about this is that the pin was not simply a religious one in nature. It was a quotation from our nation’s Pledge of Allegiance. To me, Home Depot’s behavior in this matter is an act of treason, plain and simple. So I implore every Christian American to PLEASE boycott Home Depot. We must fight back on these issues folks while we still can! Please let your voices be heard!! Contact Home Depot today and let them know that their actions are not acceptable to We The People of this great Christian nation! We cannot afford to be a silent group any longer. 

The main number for Home Depot is 1-800-Home Depot. You can also go to their main site www.homedepot.com and send them an e-mail. I strongly recommend that you do both!! You can also try 1-800-553-3199. By the way, Home Depot is another one of those businesses that requires you to press 1 in order to proceed in English!

This is an article which I wrote that was published in Monetary Intelligence Magazine in March 2009.  It’s clear that the hype we receive on a great many “studies and statistics” from our government agencies is misleading at best.  As someone who has gone through her own cancer scare, this information makes me feel so abandoned by a country I love. 
 
History of Errors

cigaretteIn the December 1959 issue of American Medical Association Journal, an editorial was published that boldly stated there was insufficient evidence “to warrant the assumption” that cigarette smoking was the principal factor in the increase of lung cancer.  Who were the medical experts who authored such blatant falsehoods?  Dr. Ian MacDonald, a prominent cancer surgeon, and Dr. Henry Garland, an internationally recognized specialist in radiology.  These two individuals made national headlines with their claims.  In fact, Dr. Garland specifically stated that cigarette smoking was actually beneficial as a tranquilizer.  MacDonald even went on to note that smoking was a “harmless pastime”— even up to 24 cigarettes per day without consequence.  He even went so far as to suggest “a pack a day keeps the cancer away.”

 

vitamin-b17Fast forward to the mid 1960s and 1970s.  Doctors Garland and MacDonald were used by government and health agencies to again submit an “expert” opinion regarding the use of laetrile, aka Vitamin B-17, aka nitrilocides on cancer patients.  In spite of countless studies by renowned doctors, clinics, universities and specialists worldwide that showed the contrary, Garland and MacDonald claimed that no direct benefits were viable.  Neither Garland nor MacDonald ever tested or used laetrile themselves.  They merely compiled a mountain of other fraudulent or derelict research data and presented it as factual.  What’s interesting is how these two doctors, and countless other trusted professionals in the medical and research industry, have been used to sacrifice medical integrity and cover up information for the sole purpose of the monetary well-being and profit of the medical industry.  Unfortunately, that criminal practice continues today . . . particularly with cancer.

 

Who’s Hiding What?

world-without-cancer-g-edward-griffinEvidence is mounting that the FDA, the American Medical Association and the American Cancer Society are deliberately hindering American citizens from having access to laetrile, a natural substance which has a proven record to prevent, cure and minimize the effects of cancer.  Given that there are hundreds of thousands of cancer fatalities each year, it’s no wonder that expert author G. Edward Griffin calls this “an act of genocide” by the FDA and its other cohorts. 

Which begs the question: If there was an easily accessible nutrient that could aid the cure and prevention of cancer, why would such entities fight against its release to the general public?  Who would want to hide a cure for cancer and what motivation would they have for perpetrating such an act of horror?  My answer to such questions usually starts with “Follow the money.”  It always comes down to money.

 

pharmaceutical-profitA study conducted by USA Today shows that over 50 percent of all of the cowardly experts which have been hired to advise the government on the merits of laetrile and any other proposed medicines have heavily-involved financial relationships with the pharmaceutical industry.  In other words, their paychecks are affected by their research.  If their research were to uncover a non-patentable substance to cure a widespread disease, they would have to pound the pavement for a new job. 

 

In 1971, the FDA reported to an Ad Hoc Committee of Consultants for Review and Evaluation of Laetrile that laetrile could no longer be promoted, sold or even tested in the United States.  Why would the FDA treat a natural occurring substance of everyday fruits and vegetables with more alarm and restrictions than it would illegal drugs, poisons and unconventional medicines?  Simple: there is no financial or political benefit to endorsing it.

 

A patent for laetrile is unobtainable since it is a naturally occurring substance. Real money can only be made if you’ve got a medical patent.  So, instead of losing millions of dollars in lobbying monies, hundreds of thousands of jobs in research and medicine, our nation would rather force its citizens to flee to foreign shores to access the freedom of choice in treating their cancer without poisons, cutting or burning, and more importantly, by accessing a method that has a higher rate of success than any medical practice put forth now in the U.S. for the treatment of cancer.

 

drdean-burkIn some studies, cancer patients have had an 82 percent improvement rate.  There aren’t any other current “anti-cancer” methods that can boast such results, especially without doing harm elsewhere to the body of a cancer victim.  1972, Dr. Dean Burk, director of cytochemistry section of the federal governments National Cancer Institute, reported, “When we add Laetrile to a cancer culture under the microscope providing the enzyme glucosidase also is present, we can see the cancer cells dying off like flies.”  The combination of glucosidase and laetrile would occur in human beings 100 percent of the time, as glucosidase is found prevalently in the small intestines.  During his participation in the Seventh International Congress of Chemotherapy held in Prague in 1971, Dr. Burk also stated “Laetrile appears to work against many forms of cancer including lung cancer. And it is absolutely non-toxic.”

 

Laetrile is widely used in Mexico, Australia, Russia, Brazil, Belgium, Philippines, Costa Rica, England, Germany, Greece, Japan, Spain and Switzerland in treating cancer, just to name a few.  Are all of the medical and research teams of all of these countries wrong on their views of laetrile?  Each year, Mexico and Germany receive thousands of U.S. visitors for laetrile treatment.  Some patients are not only able to lead longer lives but are able to fully recover and lead healthy lives. 

 

hunza-apricots1Apricots are considered sacred and a show of wealth by the famous Hunza tribe in the Himalayan mountains.  The more apricot trees they own, the wealthier they are considered to be.  The most prized food in this tribe is the apricot seed.  This tribe has never had any known instance of cancer among them.  Their traditional diet contains over 200% more nitriloside than the American diet.

 

The Abkhazians which reside deep in the Caucasus Mountains also experience the same health profile as the Hunza.  Additionally the Hopi, Modoc and Navajo Indians have had a very low rate of cancer among them.  In fact, it’s believed by many medical experts who support the use of a diet rich in nitrilosides that such incidences of cancer are brought about as a result of the “civilization” of these tribes as they replace their diet with that more like the rest of America.  The Hopi and Navajo tribes were found to regularly ingest as much as 800 milligrams of nitriloside a day.  This phenomenon has continued to be observed in both tropic and arctic regions of the world.

 

Follow  the  Money

The average patient will spend between $5,000 and $25,000 for laetrile treatment and rarely need recurring treatment.  Compare this to the average cost for U.S. cancer treatment at $55,000 a year—without complications.  This does not include the costs for making the patient more comfortable at home.  These costs can run as much as an additional 35 percent with complications.  For some, cancer treatment costs are so high they can actually prevent any treatment.  Last year alone, over $219 billion was spent by patients just on medical costs of cancer treatment.  This does not include the nearly $300 billion that was raised and contributed for cancer research.  Yes, not curing cancer is a very profitable business for those involved in research and supposed preventative pharmaceuticals. 

 

doctor-drug-prescriptionThe money is so attractive that many researchers and doctors actually counterfeit studies and research in order to get some of the money.  Between 1977 and 1980 it was determined that 62 doctors had manipulated the research data which they had provided and pocketed the fees.  In 1973, a study created by the FDA itself showed that 1 out of 5 doctors would invent research data on the effect of new drugs and submit it for publication.

 

American drug companies pay doctors as much as $1,000 per patient to test and use their drugs on patients.  This compromises the medical integrity of a doctor treating a patient if they know there’s a big check waiting in their bank account when a certain drug is used.  This is in addition to the surgery and office fees charged by the doctors to treat patients.  What monetary incentives do doctors, scientists, cancer organizations and politicians have to promote the effective use of a naturally occurring substance such as laetrile?  None.  Not one penny. 

 

Cause and Effect

Even without big cash rewards on the line for not promoting a natural substance for the cure of cancer, is it any wonder there are misperceptions on laetrile among the medical and lay professionals?  With so much misinformation being invented by so-called experts, it’s no wonder that the majority of doctors think laetrile is downright quackery.  How could anyone relying strictly on hearsay and politically motivated grapevines think differently?

 

vitamin-b171Research shows that none of the experts who oppose the use of laetrile ever actually used it, researched it, or did more than read information which was dispensed by others who were also inexperienced in developing their professional conclusions.  Now there are generations of medical professionals misinformed on the use of laetrile—professionals viewing fiction as fact because the proper research was never performed by the FDA in the first place.

 

In the 1970’s, when a highly regarded scientist was actually used by the FDA to test laetrile, he came to the same conclusion as so many experts worldwide that laetrile was effective in the treatment of cancer.  However, this did not bode well with the financial motive of the FDA.  Instead they elected to make use of the high percentage of errors which can occur in the study and research of a medical treatment and chose to repeat laetrile testing again and again until their desired results could be founded.  Evidence of research error abounds as noted by Dr. Trelford of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Ohio State University Hospital notes.  Dr. Trelford states that “chemotherapy of gynecological tumors does not appear to have increased life expectancy except in sporadic cases.”

 

Additionally, a report by the Southern Research Institute based on research conducted for the National Cancer Institute stated that “most of the accepted drugs in the American Cancer Society’s ‘proven cure’ category produced cancer in laboratory animals that previously had been healthy!”  Ultimately the scientist’s whose studies supported the use of laetrile was labeled as a quack, and the tests were ordered to be repeated again and again while making unscientific changes in the doses administered, and convoluting the tracking of the subjects.  Additionally the FDA chose to use exercise an unprecedented high and unrealistic standards of success on the laetrile studies in order that it may be deemed ineffective.  Ultimately, the FDA got their studies to “show” that laetrile was “quackery”.

jason-valeSo, the question remains.  What are we to do?  Frankly, until the Laetrilegate Scandal is fully exposed, the FDA will continue to perpetuate their politically and economically charged agenda—an agenda that now comes with legal results for anyone trying to sell or promote laetrile.  National arm wrestling champion Jason Vale, who claimed that his kidney and pancreas were cured by eating apricot seeds—an organic of laetrile—was convicted in 2003 for, among other things, marketing laetrile.  The US Food and Drug Administration continues to seek jail sentences for vendors selling laetrile for cancer treatment, calling it a “highly toxic product that has not shown any effect on treating cancer.”  Yet laetrile can be found in common foods like almonds, apple seeds and black cherries.

 

radiation-chemotherapyHundreds of thousands of cancer patients who undergo surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy die every year, yet these treatments continue to be touted as “safe and effective” by the FDA and the medical and pharmaceutical industry at large.  Not a single death of a cancer patient has ever been attributed to the supervised use of laetrile.  In fact, there are numerous studies which have shown even the most advance forms of cancer have been able to enjoy more time even though they did not begin a laetrile treatment until they were on death’s door. 

 

Ultimately, the answer to the question “What are we to do” is up to you.

job-loss-3

 

Statistically, small business owners provide the largest percentage of jobs in the U.S. — yes an even larger percentage of jobs than all of those bail-out “worthy” industries. In spite of all of the bail out monies that were supposed to loosen up the purse strings of banks in order to strengthen small businesses in extremely tough times, small businesses have become ignored and have nothing to show for any of the so-called efforts on their behalf. In fact, even without the economic crisis that is truly upon us, historically small businesses get very, very little considerations, tax breaks, or other incentives to operate their businesses.  As a result, the economic drain our nation is experiencing is merely a manifestation of a long time attitude apathy towards what really makes this country healthy.  Is it any wonder that the job loss in the last 12 months has been the worst it’s been since the World War II era?  Over 250,000,000 jobs were lost in 2008 and that doesn’t take into account the millions of individuals who were forced from full-time employment to part-time, nor does it take into account the self-employed individuals who have had to hang up their dreams and stand in the unemployment line with millions of others.  In my opinion, the economic crisis could have been averted long ago, and even the Wall Street and mortgage disaster impact lessened had national and state leaders paid more attention to the needs of small business owners.

 

When a CEO runs a company into the ground, it’s an innocuous entity.  The CEO is merely losing his regular pay check and other corporate perks. But when a true small business is run into the ground, chances are high that the life savings of the business owner, customers they’ve become friends with, and long-time employees they’ve connected with personally suffer through the carnage of such an event.  By the time the doors are finally shut on a small business, great sacrifices have already been for its survival.  Great personal financial risks such as mortgaging personal homes to the hilt, stripping it of all available equity only to find the value dropping far below the lien amount months later, and cashing in retirement and savings accounts just to last as long as possible in hopes that a life preserver will come their way.  And yet for all of this sweat, tears and sacrifice, small business owners can’t lay claim to appropriate health insurance tax deductions, can’t get access to the same affordable health care packages that large corporations enjoy, and are inundated with paper work requirements while their larger counterparts have enormous legal and accounting teams to deceive their shareholders. 

 

When a small business owner sees fit to terminate an employee who steals from them or conducts themselves inappropriately, the state still requires them to pay unemployment benefits unless such an infraction is specifically outlined in some kind of written form that the employee has manifested the receipt of. 

 

Large corporations have money and staff to handle these items. Many such monies derived by secret government contract negotiations, unfair labor practices, political connections, and international outsource savings. In contract, small business owners are beat up every which way they turn.  They pay sales taxes when they purchase items to make their businesses run better, or make their jobs easier, and then they are assessed additional taxes by their cities on those same items merely because they possess them. 

 

Long ignored is the fact that small businesses historically pay better average wages than big corporations, and discounted is the fact that employees are typically more satisfied working for a smaller business.  There is absolutely nothing done to throw a rope for small businesses in spite of their obvious strength to the economy which has been historically present for over a century! 

 

We’ve heard the saying “money talks.”  The current economic crisis is not as a result of Wall Street collapsing, a residential mortgage scandal, or the ineptness of the Federal Reserve. It’s an inevitable manifestation of ignoring the goose the lays the golden eggs. I wonder how much worse things have to get before the REAL talking money gets listened to.

Doctors…do you know what your receptionists are doing?

 

You’re sick enough that your oversized work ethic is requiring you to finally succumb to the mercy of a doctors office. After 3 miserable days in bed you finally manage to get showered and feel quite wiped out having done so.  You half consciously make it to the doctors office…the place where you hope that you’ll finally get some advice or help in overcoming your misery…and what’s the FIRST thing you hear from the receptionist when you announce your on time arrival? 

 

“Do you have insurance?”

 

No “Hi. How are you today?  Sorry to see that you’re ill.  We’ll be with you as soon as we can.  Heaven forbid someone should actually acknowledge your human-ness and address you by name. 

 

A little human consideration goes a long way towards improved health when you make us sit half naked with nothing but an oversized paper towel over us, or when we have to wait for hours in a waiting room with other sick, wheezing, vomiting people. 

 

Sure insurance pays your bills. But PEOPLE pay for the insurance. And PEOPLE are who make the decision which doctor they will use.  I realize that you may be oblivious that your receptionists are greeting your patients this way. But the majority of them are nowadays.  Does it really rack up your overtime costs if your receptionist takes a millisecond to say “hello” before she asks about insurance information?

 

Here’s a perfect example…a true story…no exaggeration…

 

Patient calling into a doctors office:  Hi.  I’m ___________, the husband of ___________ who is a patient of doctor ______________.  My wife just passed out after throwing up right after she took the prescription you gave her.  What should I do?

 

Receptionist: “What insurance do you have?”

 

NO KIDDING!  Holy cow, the least she could have done is said “Mr. _______, what insurance do you have?” or “I’m sorry to hear that.  What insurance do you have?”

 

Doctors, if you’re unhappy with the grumpiness or the lack of social tact of your patients, a little bit of education of your greeting staff could make a huge difference in the daily fulfillment of your career.

Today’s headlines blame the economy on the fact that USPS is in the red over $2.8 billion.  For the purposes of this blog, I’m going to lump the woes of DHL and Circuit City’s bankruptcy news in this today as well. After all, their challenges all have one thing in common…and it’s not the “bad economy.”  It’s the inability for these entities to accept responsibility at an opportune time in which the economy can be blamed.

 

Now let’s get to the truth of the matter.

 

How about the fact that the USPS has lost a significant amount of trust with its consumers nowadays?  High-count direct-mail marketers are strongly cautioned against sending out all of their mail on the same day due to historical instances in which the postal employee recipient will merely throw them away.  As a result, not only do large-scale mail marketers have to separate their outgoing mail among several different post offices (which costs them more in the bulk mailing costs they pay) but they also have to be sure to plant “seed” addresses in their lists.  In other words, have the items be mailed to individuals who they can trust and confirm that a mail piece was received.

 

What ever happened to “through rain, sleet, or snow?”  Many business owners are reporting that the post office is refusing to deliver mail to any floor above the first level regardless of the presence of an elevator.  Instead, regardless of what kind of sensitive documentation your business may receive, the USPS will hand over your mail to a business on the 1st floor and expect it to get to you. And thus wash their hands of any responsibility to do what they actually get paid to do…deliver mail to the addressee.

 

In this same situation, business owners are complaining that certified mail isn’t even being delivered to and signed for the intended recipient.  It’s merely signed for by some mindless individual at the office that the post office determines will accept the mail for the entire building.

 

Have you ever noticed that smiling customer service is rare at a US Post office?  Long lines all year round.  Minimal supplies when they are available.  Waiting in line only to be told that you didn’t need to wait in line or you have to do such and such and then get in line again.  How does a post office run out of stamps on a regular business day?  Isn’t that a big part of what they are supposed to do?

 

I don’t know about you, but over the last two years I’ve been receiving a significant increase in mail that’s not addressed to me.  Not even close.  And yet when I put it back in the mail box to be delivered to its appropriate addressee, my postal worker informs me that it will merely be returned to sender as undeliverable.  Holy cow!  The address is right on there only a couple blocks away! 

 

And yet for all of these stellar benefits, we give frequent “raises” to the post office in the form of regularly increased postage costs.

 

Our office used DHL exclusively for some time, until we just got too fed up with packages not being delivered on time, being nickled and dimed with additional fees, and DHL not accepting any responsibility when a package was delivered incorrectly. 

 

On the opposite side of this business, our Fed Ex delivery person once attempted to deliver a package to our office at Christmas time only to discover my husband and I had already left. So he drove over to our home and delivered it there!  Fed Ex doesn’t deliver perfectly either.  But when Fed Ex messes up on a delivery, an immediate credit is issued without having to wait on hold for 20 minutes to share the unpleasant tale. 

 

Circuit City has been getting too big for it’s britches over the last two years as well.  Winter shopping at this retailer proved to be confusing, frustrating, and altogether unpleasant—clearly reflective of their employee training program and management standards they have in place.

 

But hey.  Let’s blame the demise of USPS, DHL, and Circuit City on the economy, shall we?   That takes the blame and focus off of the real problems.  That way no one has to accept accountability and learn from these horrendous mistakes.  Too bad Enron didn’t close down in the midst of an economic crisis.  No one would have gone to jail.

Joe the Plumber vs. Rick Sanchez—the talking head of CNN.  And the winner is…Joe Wurzelbacher.  On the other hand,  at the risk of sounding like the amateur mass media, Rick Sanchez  is this year’s entrepreneurial putz.

 

In his November 4th interview with the newly famous Joe the Plumber, Rick Sanchez appeared to be as knowledgeable of the abilities of entrepreneurs as the Mr. Clean knows hair care.

 

Mr. Sanchez’s mindless questions of Joe the Plumber demonstrated that he had clearly NOT done his research of this nation’s entrepreneurs.  He joined the mass of misperception when he underestimated entrepreneurs all over the world as indicated by empty-headed questions to Joe Wurzelbacher.  Sanchez’s ignorance was manifested on at least 3 separate lines of questioning.

 

1) “Why would you be so upset about people who clear more than $250,000 a year—having to pay taxes, when you’re nowhere near that category?” 

 

One does not need to live in a leper colony to have sympathy for their plight.  Wurzelbacher made it clear repeatedly that he objected to the principle of the wealthier paying more taxes simply because they had more of it.  Like most entrepreneurs,

 

2) “…you are not in a situation where you’re going to be able to make that money any time soon.”

 

 

Who is this talking bobble head to dish out the socially acceptable level and speed of any person’s achievement or fulfillment in this life?  (business owner or not)

 

The fact of the matter is, every entrepreneur is very near making $250,000.  Many have succeeded in making multiple times that in one day.  Some are content to choose to earn less, and some push themselves to earn more.  There’s no mandate that it must take decades, years or months to earn this kind of income. No initials after your name are required. No special gene pool.  It’s not a secret and it’s accessible to any literate human being in our nation.  It requires applied knowledge, a restlessness with the status quo, and a combination of passion and commitment.   

 

3) “You’re nowhere near being able to buy a business that clears more than $250,000 a year because that would take millions and millions of dollars, right?”

 

Another mistaken assumption.  It does not take millions of dollars to clear $250,000.  In fact, there are many well known business owners who have brought in significantly more than that for significantly less.  Entrepreneurs of all kinds know how to create huge profit margins.  Paul Hartunian, for example, paid $500 for the discarded wood of the Brooklyn Bridge walkway to be delivered to his home.  He then cut the wood up in tiny little square pieces, wrote a killer press release, and made millions of dollars actually selling the Brooklyn Bridge to people all over the world.  To this day he is STILL getting free press about this and subsequent feats of similar style. 

 

Credible information marketers such as Dan Kennedy, Lee Milteer, Michael Cheney, Rich Shefren, Matt Bacak, Shawn Casey, Tellman Knudsen, Jeff Walker, Bill Glazer, Andrew Fox, and countless others regularly clear 7 figures within a matter of days in exchange for a weeks worth of writing and sharing their expertise—and do so repeatedly!   Write, launch, reap, repeat.

 

Here’s the ultimate problem with Sanchez’s skewed vision of the world of capitalism.  He’s forgotten about freedom combined with human potential.  For every story of failure, there’s an enduring story of success in even greater proportions.  In my opinion, there are equal amounts of ways to succeed as there are to stumble. 

 

One of my clients recently earned over $500,000 on one transaction.  Granted, he had to make his way through whole lot of “suspect clients” in the last 9 months to get access to the real deal, but he did so.  And now that he’s accomplished this, no Rick Sanchez of the world can ever convince him that his ideas of success are impossible. 

 

One significant success will breed a confident, unshakable entrepreneur.

 

My hope is that one day entrepreneurs will be viewed as the standard of success, genuine security, and credibility.  In my opinion, they certainly deserve the respect, sincere assistance and accolades more than Wall Street, Big Corporate America, or the sacrosanct banking institutions do.

Wall Street SHOULD tumble despite the AIG bailout

Anything other than a “Wall Street tumble” would be a deception on the public. Why?  Because there is no financial benefit for the investors of our nation when the “Fed” bails out another business gone amuck.  It’s a generic band-aid, initiated to continue the perpetration of a century long façade. Let me say this again loud and clear… the Federal Reserve is NOT a government entity. Our government leaders have no say in how it operates, and no jurisdiction over it. So how does it have any authority over the use of YOUR tax dollars??  And yet it was the tax dollars of U.S. citizens pledged for use of the Federal Reserve for this AIG bailout and the so-called $70 billion cash infusion that occurred yesterday.  

I’m having a hard time understanding how so little financial intellect can be present in the minds of our media reporters? They can get heavily involved in what celebrity was caught kissing whom, what crime rate is on the rise, whether or not a woman or a mother is fit to run a big business or serve in a major government position, but they can’t see the asinine proposal of our tax dollars being given to a foreign entity to bail out another big business gone amuck?  

Since when did business failure deserve a reward? Let the consequences happen as they may to these big businesses.  Give the American investors pause for more prudence in their investment decision making.

Why is it that our nation’s leaders are allocating our tax dollars to a non-governmental entity to bailout a company most of us could care less about? Since when does failure to operate a business properly merit the pity and hard-earned dollars of American citizens?   I know of hundreds of business owners who have made mistakes in running their business; and not only does no one come to their aid one iota, but because they are self-employed business owners, even in a crisis they are unable to get access to simple financial benefits such as food stamps or Medicaid (that even illegal immigrants can get) when necessary! The irony is that small and medium sized businesses contribute the largest portion of tax dollars to these programs than even large corporations- yes more than Merrill Lynch and AIG put together!  Do we simply discount or forget that these struggling businesses may have had a wonderful 5 year run previously in which they contributed to the economy by providing honest jobs to dozens of employees, tax dollars, vendor service dollars, etc?

Stop the insanity. Get educated about what’s really going on and then voice your opinion in these matters to the government leaders just as fervently as you would cry for help to save your family, your home, and your freedom.
