Khan Academy

You are now obselete, a dinosaur. I'm sure that people with your skills should have no trouble finding gainful employment in either the food service or hospitality industries.

Government for the 21st Century - A Proposal To Return Law Back To The People

February 12, 2011 – Comments (44)

February 03, 2011 – Comments (17)

I've been thinking about this in brevity over the last several months. There is a definitely bizarre relationship between Peter Schiff and ideological opponents.  It's vastly different from the relationship you'll find between those same opponents and the work of other gold investors and libertarians.   [more]
