"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation then by deflation, the banks and the corporations that will grow up around them, will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."

Dirty Secret Of The Bailout: Thirty-Two Words

A critical - and radical - component of the bailout package proposed by the Bush administration has thus far failed to garner the serious attention of anyone in the press. Section 8 of this legislation is just a single sentence of thirty-two words, but it represents a significant consolidation of power and an abdication of oversight authority that's so flat-out astounding that it ought to set one's hair on fire. It reads, in its entirety:

Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency.Please write every rep in Congress and the senate for your state and tell them this will not fly.

Paulson to the US -- Grab Your Ankles

There's a plan afoot to screw the US taxpayer.  It was proposed by the Treasury Secretary.  He will attempt to ram it through Congress this week using scare tactics.  The bottom line is this is the worst piece of legislation to come down the pike in a very long time.  It should not be passed in present form.
