Dumbing down of America:
How does the head of a private entity: The Fed, become the subject of nomination by government?
What is still in the vaults at Fort Knox?(No audit has been done since Eisenhower).
Why was gold removed as a standard for US currency?(Ask Kissinger, one of the few remaining extant Nixon cabinet members, and a dyed in the wool supporter of CFR, Tri-lats, and big O).
What happens when China calls and checks on their investment in US bills?

I just can't resist the urge to inject a note of levity into this serious discussion.
Obama said in his speech that Bernanke "helped put the brakes on our financial free fall"
Isn't that a mixed metaphor? Wouldn't a parachute be more approprate for free fall? Or perhaps air brakes.
OK, I apologise.
