Atlas Shrugs – It’s Friday Night — Obamacrats Bad News Dump
Think things are out of hand yet ? Kenny S wrote, “the media went on the Memorial Day holiday about a half-hour ago. About ten minutes later, ‘guess who’ passed a tax increase on the per-barrel rate for oil – from 8 cents to 34 cents.
The House vote was 215 to 204.
Everything is about to go up in cost….. EVERYTHING.
Your income, if you’re lucky enough to still be employed or still in business, stays the same (actually decreases due to the additional expenses for everything is about to go up in cost.”

Dollar Primed for Collapse by End June. Yes, the US Dollar is presently artificially strong. But we are looking at a study of relative weaknesses. All the major fiat currencies are in a race to the bottom. Don’t make the foolish mistake of swapping from one un-back currency into another. Instead, swap into tangibles!
US money supply plunges at 1930s pace as Obama eyes fresh stimulus. The money multiplier effect works in reverse, as credit collapses. But at some point the huge waves of stimulus spending will be financed by monetization, and that will be hugely inflationary. Be ready for a rapid transition from deflation to inflation, possibly as soon as late 2010 or early 2011.

Great Americans is a proud partner of the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation. This video tells the inspiring stories of several Medal of Honor recipients – including those who fought in the Vietnam era battle dramatized in We Were Soldiers. It also tells the dramatic story of Army Sergeant Paul Ray Smith, the first Medal of Honor recipient in the war on terrorism.
My friend Bob Wallace of the VFW Washington Office – and millions of VFW members worldwide – are dedicated to the noble cause of honoring the dead by helping the living. This VFW video captures the spirit of their service to America’s ordinary heroes and their families. You can support their efforts at: www.vfw.org/troops
Major Megan McClung was the highest-ranking female military officer to be killed in Iraq. Her story exemplifies the fact that now, more than ever before in history, women are sharing in the burden of defending our nation. As expressed by my friend Brig.Gen. Wilma Vaught, of the Women in Military Service Memorial, they feel “it would be wrong not to serve” and share in the sacrifice.
