The American Dream

Federal ReserveThe Federal Reserve and Banking

I’ve never done this before, but today I’m devoting this page to a brilliant piece of animation that my friend Kathleen Saulino posted this morning on her Facebook page.

This, I believe, is one of the most important and educational films ever made. It explains in terms easy to understand (and with brilliant satirical insight) what has happened to this once-great nation, and why we all need to stand up and take it back.

It is almost thirty minutes long but worth every second of your precious time. Cross my heart.

Take a good look at what America’s political apathy and ignorance has done to us.

Send a link to everyone you know – and tell them to spread it far and wide – to everyone they know….and so on….

“The Re-Founding Fathers and Mothers”

Declare a new Declaration of Independence – from the banks and financial despots who have looted the not only our economy, but the entire world’s – then back to my place for coffee and drinks. What do you say?
