Since some people find older ideas more valuable, I found this commentary that just might apply to our current condition.

"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."

-- Thomas Jefferson

***Just learned last night of the demise of Bryan's (favourite) sister. She shot herself - Natives have an extremely high suicidal rate.  :'(
It'sThis might be Bryan's second sibbling to pass on from suicide.***

Update: Apparently there will be an investigation - her death is now regarded as 'suspect'. Funeral arangements have been postponed.

“I do not know anything about the Bible.  I have no use for preachers.  No man ever came to me hungry and went away unfed, or naked and departed unclad.  All my life I have tried to live at peace with my fellow man and be a brother to him.  The rest I leave with the Great Spirit who placed me here, and whom I trust to do all things well.”  -- Jesse Chisholm
