We are again in a bubble economy created by our plutocrats for their extraordinary profits. The Fed in its primary function of facilitating and managing instability has helped create this bubble with a 2.5 trillion money creation account. Our total nonfinancial debt has increased beyond our capacity to repay. And, bubbles burst.
Congress should once again review and amend the Fed's systems and delegated authority.

Last year 288 members of the House of Representatives voted against the US Constitution. Unbelievable? No. They voted against requiring Mr. Bush to get Congressional approval for an attack on Iran. Bush must not be allowed to attack another sovereign nation without Congressional approval in violation of Article 1, Sect. 8.11 of the US Constitution. This issue transcends all others until such legislation is passed.

SHARE Tuesday, February 20, 2007 Operation Mayday: A speculation on a possible Bush Iran Strategy
Demand Congress place two restrictions on all defense appropriations. First, no American forces should undertake offensive actions against Iran. Second, no American forces should help Israel undertake offensive actions against Iran. If we fail to restrict defense funds, Messrs. Olmert and Bush may join Saddam Hussein in the ranks of unprovoked aggressors who have attacked Iran, and the perpetual war will continue.
