When I think of “Bush”, I don’t think of George W. Bush. I think of the entire Bush Administration, all of the corporations they represent, and the members of the House and Senate that allow this insanity to continue.
It would be impossible for me to post everything I have related to Bush, however, these are all of the articles I have with his name in the title.
A friend of mine tonight brought up the declining dollar. This is the first time I’d heard someone other than myself, and a few others mention it. That, to me, suggests that the collapse of the dollar may be upon us. I am by no means a financial expert, however, I am someone that follows the news. It doesn’t take a financial expert to see what is happening to the U.S. Dollar. I don’t know what to say other than hope for the best, and expect the worst.
The following is every article I have about the decline of the Dollar.

Fire union leaders and relatives of firefighters killed at the World Trade Center in 2001 blasted Republican presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani in a video on Wednesday, pairing footage of the falling twin towers with charges that the city’s former mayor was woefully unprepared for Sept. 11, causing needless firefighter deaths.

Want to hear Doo Wop artists that make you “FealGood,” and enjoy a concert designed to help many 9/11 First Responders and their families?
Friend Entertainment, Ltd., along with the FealGood Foundation, will be hosting a “Doo-Wop for the First Responders of 9/11” concert at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 21 at Queens College’s Kupferberg Center for the Performing Arts/Colden Auditorium.
All of the profits from the show will go to foundations for the families of the First Responders of 9/11, said Norman Wasserman, creator of Friend Entertainment.
The concert will include performances by original Doo-Wop artists: Johnny Maestro and the Brooklyn Bridge, The Duprees, Frankie Lymon’s “Legendary” Teenagers, Jay Siegel and The Tokens, Vito Picone and The Elegants and Cleveland Still and The Dubs, according to Wasserman, who began the fund-raising organization 19 years ago.
IN her recent testimony before the House subcommittee that I lead, Christie Whitman, the former administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, played a shell game intended to create confusion about the federal government’s failure to protect rescue workers and others in New York after the World Trade Center towers fell on Sept. 11.
In the days after the attacks, the agency repeatedly gave blanket assurances about air quality. For example, Mrs. Whitman said on Sept. 18, 2001, that she was “glad to reassure the people of New York” that “their air is safe to breathe.” Such broad assurances contradicted government tests Mrs. Whitman had showing dangerous levels of asbestos both on the World Trade Center site — the so-called pile — and in surrounding neighborhoods. She now says that her statements referred to air quality in Lower Manhattan generally, not to air quality on the pile where rescue personnel were working.
Here is every article I’ve collected about opium production in Afghanistan following our invasion. Some have speculated that opium production was one of the main reasons we invaded Afghanistan. The idea is, a large percentage of drug money gets laundered through the American Banking System, as well as Wall Street. Sen. Carl Levin once said:
Current estimates are that $500 billion to $1 trillion in illegal funds are laundered through banks worldwide each year, with about half going through U.S. financial institutions.
At the time of our invasion, Afghanistan opium production was at an all time low because the Taliban managed to destroy a large percentage of the opium crops.
However, Mullah Omar said that if the U.S. were to invade, the farmers will be allowed to grow opium.
How lucky for “U.S. financial institutions.”
I recommend the writings of Peter Dale Scott with regard to the drug trade.
