Editor: Should one assume that they are right? See for yourself
8-4-2002 New World Order

Is this the New World Order?

The current administration is full of former CEOs, and other strange things.
  • The elder Bush was head of the CIA, and son is installed in the office of the Presidency.
  • The younger Bush was head of Harken Engergy
  • Colin Powell sits on the board of AOLTimeWarner, while his son is the head of the FCC
  • Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill was CEO of Alcoa
  • Defense Chief Rumsfeld was CEO of Searle and General Instrument
  • Commerce Sec'y Don Evans headed Tom Brown, an energy services firm
  • Labor Sec'y Elaine Chao was CEO of the United Way.
Translated from Latin, The Great Seal of the United States, says "God hath blessed this undertaking" and "New World Order." Is this the NWO which is referred to on our dollar bills, or is God not yet finished?
8-3-2002 Twilight
Nothing is quite so wretchedly corrupt as an aristocracy which has lost its power but kept its wealth and which still has endless leisure to devote to nothing but banal enjoyments. All its great thoughts and passionate energy are things of the past, and nothing but a host of petty, gnawing vices now cling to it like worms to a corpse.

— Alexis de Tocqueville

8-2-2002 Blowing in the wind
Economist In the Wind
(sung to the tune of Elton John's Candle in the Wind)
by Karen De Coster,

Goodbye J.M. Keynes
Though I never worshipped you at all
You chose to make a King of yourself
While those around you crawled
They crawled out of the government
And they whispered into your brain
They complimented you on deficits
And you said savings were to blame
And it seems to me you lived your life
Like an economist in the wind
Never knowing what to cling to
When inflation and unemployment set in
I wouldn't have liked to've known you
And I was not yet conceived
Your theories burned out long before
You got them Austrians peeved.
The General Theory stunk
The stinkiest arguments you ever made
The Leftists created a superstar
And the "Multiplier" was the price you paid
Even when you died
They all still worshipped you
All the academics had to say
Was that "Keynes was one brilliant dude"
Goodbye J.M. Keynes
Though I never worshipped you at all
You chose to make a King of yourself
While those around you crawled
Goodbye J. M. Keynes
From the kindred souls in the MIT Grad school
Who see you as something more than a fallacy
More than just an ignorant fool
8-1-2002 Was it not right?

The cover of the May 28, 2002 issue of the World Weekly News.
Stock market crash by July, it said. Hmmm...

Rights are merely the flip side of Responsibilities.

in other words...
"The price of Liberty is eternal vigilance."
— Thomas Jefferson
