Getting it good and hard

The elections being over, I shall not unduly comment on the reelection of the horrid Obama, or the un-professional, traitorous hacks of the leftist media that kept his many scandals, incompetence and disgraceful lies out of the news, or about the trusting, gullible, ignorant, greedy and stupid people who elected him, except to quote the immortal Thomas Jefferson, who said “The government you elect is the government you deserve.”

The facade – much like the idea of the centralized private banking system – is grandiose, elaborate and stunningly beautiful in its own way.

The building, though beautiful, marks a moment in the nation’s history that pitted pro-democratic, Constitutionalist Thomas Jefferson against the more imperialist-leaning, big-government-minded Alexander Hamilton. . . .Read complete Report
