world monetary system was nothing more than a 'daisey chain' of virtually worthless loans that nearly collapsed when the arab states formed OPEC and dramatically raised the price of crude. OPEC was collecting increased amounts of money for crude oil but had neither the means to return that much money to circulation nor the understanding that they should. There were stories at the time about how the Arabs had to be educated very quickly as to the true nature of global money and agree to the creative ways to quickly recirculate the money before the system crashed.

You will want some links. I don't have any, I am working from personal memory which does not link to the internet. If you are able to do historical research from original sources (hard copy from a hard library) you can independently verify the video.

The late '60's song, "Kiss it Goodbye" by Steam was used by Nancy Faust (with great effect) at Commiskey Park to stir up White Sox fans during the 1972 season. The yakking heads seem to be totally unaware of this Chicago connection.

The crowd wasn't sending Bush off--they were cheering Obama on, to "hit one out of the park", which he did.

If you should happen to inadvertently send a "dual use item" to an officially restricted person, here is your airtight defense:

"The conduct, then, was in the defendants' scope of employment regardless of whether it was unlawful or contrary to the national security of the United States," Appeals Court Chief Judge David Sentelle wrote in the opinion.

I certainly would not recommend anyone knowingly violate these laws but if should happen to you, here is a straw to clutch at.
