Even if everything Secretary of State John Kerry says about chemical weapons in Syria were true, the evidence would prove only that Bashar al-Assad committed crimes against civilians. It would not prove that the U.S. government has either the moral or legal authority to commit acts of war.
In the 2012 presidential campaign, President Obama claimed Detroit as evidence of his successful policies: “We refused to let Detroit go bankrupt. We bet on American workers and American ingenuity and, three years later, that is paying off in a big way.”

Jim Rogers, a famous investor, tells us that nations that save and invest these savings will have growth and prosperity. America is on the wrong path. We don’t have savings, and we are loaded with debt. We also consume more than we export, and have done so for many years. The Federal Reserve is debasing the dollar, so its worth keeps declining.

This is all planned by our administration, with massive monetary help by the FED.

There are plenty of outstanding offensive football players in the East Valley ready to put on a show this year. On the flip side are the players preparing to stop them.

Aaron Post and his team at Bar Vision in Phoenix produce innovative bar technology — devices that track pouring measurements to prevent bartenders from over pouring. They design products that improve “pour profits” rather than detect “pour loss.”
I am really disgusted with the Federal Reserve. I don’t like the fact that there has never been an audit of their finances. Everything that the FED does affects America.
