Riddle me this: Why such a fuss over Greece when the recent belly-up of a much bigger Spain hasn’t even been in the news?!

Answer: Goldman Sachs doesn’t have any losses to recoup?! The scam of Central Banks using a purposefully tanked country to launder money to speculators has been exposed with Greece and they can’t do it anymore?!

U.S. growth slows as inventory accumulation wanes.

Obama"s record

You are doing great work, I try to call in, but it's hard to get thru, thanks for all you do.

I voted for Obama, but I, like many Dem's, am a little unhappy that he hasn't full filled his promises quite like we all had hoped.

Was it not Bush who borrowed $7 trillion before Obama took office?

Is it going to be another year that our choice will be the lesser of evil's come election time?

If you have time to answer these questions where will I look for the answers?

Thanks so much and keep up the good work you do, run for office somewhere, we need your ideas!

HI Thom

Sallie Mae not government controlled

I know I'm a day behind, but I always listen the next day to the previous days podcast.

Just thought I'd drop you a line to tell you that SallieMae is no longer part of the federal government.

Could T.B.Y.F. Equal T.G.I.F.?

A lot of us would probably have rejected the "gift" of life had we been given the chance. Now that we have it we need to think deeply before we have children ourselves and, if we already have them, we need to accept the obligation of discussing the issue with them (or their children, our grand children) trying to convince them to think long and hard about it - not from their perspective but from that of the child they may selfishly consider bringing into existence.
