Alice in Washington

by Ron Paul | Wednesday, September 24, 2008

Dear Friends,

Whenever a Great Bipartisan Consensus is announced, and a compliant media assures everyone that the wondrous actions of our wise leaders are being taken for our own good, you can know with absolute certainty that disaster is about to strike.

The events of the past week are no exception.

The bailout package that is about to be rammed down Congress' throat is not just economically foolish. It is downright sinister. It makes a mockery of our Constitution, which our leaders should never again bother pretending is still in effect. It promises the American people a never-ending nightmare of ever-greater debt liabilities they will have to shoulder. Two weeks ago, financial analyst Jim Rogers said the bailout of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac made America more communist than China! "This is welfare for the rich," he said. "This is socialism for the rich. It's bailing out the financiers, the banks, the Wall Streeters."

That describes the current bailout package to a T. And we're being told it's unavoidable.

The claim that the market caused all this is so staggeringly foolish that only politicians and the media could pretend to believe it. But that has become the conventional wisdom, with the desired result that those responsible for the credit bubble and its predictable consequences - predictable, that is, to those who understand sound, Austrian economics - are being let off the hook. The Federal Reserve System is actually positioning itself as the savior, rather than the culprit, in this mess!

Florida Burrowing Baby Owls painting -keROBinson

The Florida Burrowing Owl Project includes a statewide population survey of the Florida Burrowing Owl, Athene cunicularia floridana, and on-going conservation efforts.

Helping with The Florida Burrowing Owl Project is simple. If you know of a Burrowing Owl site in Florida, send Pam an e-mail at with information about the site(s) including the county, nearest city or town, and location. For urban owls, include the street address or the address of the closest house. For rural owls, directions to the site are helpful; use landmarks like power poles (try to get a pole number), the number of fence posts from a gate or mileage from a known intersection to describe the location.
"BABY OWLS" 11"x14 inch Original Painting by KeROBinson.
This is just one of the many paintings from the BABY OWL SERIES.
I will try & get most of them photographed & uploaded to my website,
