Discussions continue about the obvious absence of the Little Fiddler from the U. S. Senate and the refusal of his staff to even say where he is being kept. Talk is that the Big Boss plans to name himself and then Earl Ray, now described as "the lieutenant governor" can take over. The passage by the U. S. House of the 'cap & trade' tax bill was a real blow to manufacturing, oil & gas and the very freedom that has made America great. In addition to bad science, those who promote such schemes have no understanding of economics. However, many feel that the real intent is to destroy the economy, make everyone destitute with the idea that then folks will all look to the federal government for sustenance. The famine in Egypt that Joseph predicted comes to mind.
