No, Mr. Potter of It's A Wonderful Life, was not Right- that would be Thomas Jefferson who over 200years ago knew the score!
'I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.'
Thomas Jefferson 1802
"je pense que les institutions bancaires sont plus dangereuses pour nos libertés que des armées entières prêtes au combat. Si le peuple américain permet un jour que des banques privées contrôlent leur monnaie, les banques et toutes les institutions qui fleuriront autour des banques priveront les gens de toute possession, d'abord par l'inflation, ensuite par la récession, jusqu'au jour où leurs enfants se réveilleront, sans maison et sans toit, sur la terre que leurs parents ont conquis"
Thomas Jefferson 1802
so throw out all the adoration for those who have for too long been adored and who for too long have merited unwarrented trust- here's to new beginnings, simple and clean and fair!

Just like the guys at
Extremely Poor Richard’$ Almanac we are working on the premise that old fashioned fun is back in style. yes, how cozy can sitting around the fire playing cards and making cookies or preparing a luscious pasta dinner be....no reason to feel consumer deprived...saving is what it is all about,the cool crowd do not waste nor want...a return to the basics, heck, I may try knitting. From their site you can check out Jane Fonda's Dad in the photo from Grapes of Wrath, a cheerful film for the kids -it will make them count their
blessings for internet and all things techy! and I thank corine at
Hidden in France for her lead to yet the new funny link above-Bravo!
