It's mainly about Big Brother, but he talks about monetary theory too, and an interesting thing happens when he does. Skip ahead to 2:17:40.

Bill Moyer is a great journalist. Moyers was cloaked by the veil of silence and only recently returned to the airwaves. Maybe Elaine will get an interview.

"Reason and free inquiry are the only effectual agents against error... They are the natural enemies of error, and of error only... If [free enquiry] be restrained now, the present corruptions will be protected, and new ones encouraged." --Thomas Jefferson: Notes on Virginia Q.XVII, 1782. ME 2:221

Hmmmmm, Does Phil Gramm own stock in Rolaids? From Der Spiegel:
"...the same panel took aim at the LGT bank and Swiss banking giant UBS in a report accusing the banks of helping Americans evade paying up to $100 billion (€63.3 billion) annually.
...Tax havens are engaged in economic warfare against the United States," Democratic Sen. Carl Levin told the committee
...Mark Branson, chief financial officer of UBS Global Wealth Management and Business Banking, expressed regret(yeah, right. regret on being caught)... In addition, Branson announced that his bank would no longer provide US residents with offshore banking and securities services from Switzerland-based branches, but only from branches based in the US."

AND HERE'S WHERE THE SH*T HITS THE FAN:"...Branson also added that the bank would cooperate with US authorities "to identify the names of US clients who may have engaged in tax fraud," according to the AP. Branson justified the decision by saying that the client-identity protections in Swiss laws were not meant to extend to cases involving tax fraud."

Russian Bombers Could Be Deployed to Cuba:

Russian bombers capable of carrying nuclear weapons could be deployed to Cuba in response to U.S. plans to install a missile defense system in Eastern Europe, a Russian newspaper reported Monday, citing an unnamed senior Russian air force official.

"the names of US clients who may have engaged in tax fraud,"

How kind of UBS to refer to tax fraud criminals as US clients. Undoubtedly, if Al Capone was alive today, he would be considered a wealthy private investor and receive preferential treatment. Today Capone would receive a slap on the hand, and a pat on the back. Poor misunderstood Al, born in the wrong era.


Capone was indicted for income tax evasion for the years 1925-29. He was also charged with the misdemeanor of failing to file tax returns for the years 1928 and 1929....Judge Wilkerson sentenced him to a total of ten years in federal prison and one year in the county jail. In addition, Capone had to serve an earlier six-month contempt of court sentence for failing to appear in court. The fines were a cumulative $50,000 and Capone had to pay the prosecution costs of $7,692.29.
