    Unpopular means popular with the opposition. Unpopular with everyone isn't safe at all. ;-)

    The late Merrill Jenkins, Monetary Realist said "Freedom is the absence of legislation" also he said in 1979: :Our monetary system would not work if all of the world's bankers were not in collusion." You could see they were all in collusion in the fall of 2008, Too many fail to distinguish between money and wealth, Jenkins aaid: "Money expropriates wealth" 6 of his 7 books are free at: www.morpix.biz/x15 His first was "Money", The Greatest Hoax On Earth. I have a few copies, I knew him well.
