    In regards to the CRS article, I was wondering if you were going to link it into PageOne -glad you did.

    One of the things it shows me is the type of “game” our representatives manipulate (outright lie actually), and the public in general is clueless on so many levels. I’m including myself. I wish to God, someone will shed some light on this and take those representatives to task for suppressing this report.

    The problem is the MACHINE behind the government.
