- Funny you should mention God, Walter. Here is an hilarious take off on the popular Superbowl ad "God Made a Farmer" which is titled "God Made a Liberal". You'll see some of those creations tonight at the SOTU address. They'll be the ones clapping like trained seals or North Koreans as Dear Leader reads from his two teleprompters the usual left wing twaddle written for him by other liberals living comfortably off the working class.

- This is strictly speculation but I reckon that Obama's SOTU address will NOT include the following: "Since his inauguration, the US has generated just 841,000 jobs through November 2012, a number that is more than dwarfed by the 17.3 million new foodstamps and disability recipients added to the rolls in the past 4 years. And since the start of the depression in December 2007, America has seen those on foodstamps and disability increase by 21.8 million, while losing 3.6 million jobs. End result: total number of foodstamp recipients as of November: 47.7 million, an increase of 141,000 from the prior month, and reversing the brief downturn in October, while total US households on foodstamps just hit an all time record of 23,017,768, an increase of 73,952 from the prior month. The cost to the government to keep these 23 million households content and not rising up? $281.21 per month per household."
- What will probably also be ommited from the address is the fact that during Obama's four years plus in office, the groups that have suffered the most in terms of post Great Depression record levels of unemployment are blacks and women, the very groups BO claims to be trying to help the most. After all, if Obama recounted that, for example, the average unemployment rate for blacks during his four years is MORE THAN DOUBLE the average unemployment rate for blacks during Bush's eight years, this might "confuse" the left wing morons who support him no matter what.
it was 1933 but that is besides the point. The battle is over knocking the US off the top of the heap as the main reserve currency which came into being post WW2.
Iran, Iraq, A-Stan, North Korea, Libya, Venezula etc etc all refuse to use the US dollar. This makes them evil.
Then throw in denial of right of way for energy corridors and they are even more evil.
In reaction to the Great Depression, Congress passed the Banking Act of 1933,
better known as the Glass-Steagall Act, calling for the separation of commercial
and investment banking and requiring use of government securities as collateral
for Federal Reserve notes. The Act also established the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corporation (FDIC), placed open market operations under the Fed and
required bank holding companies to be examined by the Fed, a practice that was
to have profound future implications, as holding companies became a prevalent
structure for banks over time. Also, as part of the massive reforms taking
place, Roosevelt recalled all gold and silver certificates, effectively ending
the gold and any other metallic standard.
Gold and silver were the still main currency until 33. Until they controlled gold and silver paper fiat money didn't stand a chance.
