Jefferson on Banking

“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, (i.e., the “business cycle”) the banks and 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.” –Thomas Jefferson President of the United States 1801-1809


Palin’s $150,000 Makeover, Obama’s Resoled Shoes

It’s been reported that Professor Higgins, er, the RNC has spent $150,000 on clothes and other items in their continued attempt to turn Sarah Palin into a socially acceptable Eliza Doolittle. Meanwhile, this photo of Obama was discovered in a great collection of campaign shots from Callie Shell).

Since taking to the campaign trail a year ago, Obama admits he’s already had them resoled once.  It’s a little thing, but it says volumes about the man.

Meanwhile, $150,000 can’t make a silk purse out of a polar bear’s ear.*

Obama's stumping shoes need a second resoling.

*In an ironic twist, Defender’s is trying to raise $150,000 so they can show the ad in battleground states. Does that amount of money ring a bell?!
