This may not be the optimal time to publish this book. For one thing, it is about a praiseworthy banker - our nation's first banker, if you will.
Wednesday was the 219th anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights - the first 10 amendments to the Constitution. Bill of Rights Day should be the pre-eminent Anti-Politician Day on the American calendar. Instead, it has become simply another pretext for rulers to delude the ruled, an opportunity that the Obama administration is exploiting.
Arguments that the "separation of church and state" resides in the Constitution rely upon premeditated ignorance. Alexander Hamilton gave clear instructions on how to read this document in the "Federalist Papers."

Of course you don't remember this, because it did not happen.
Release of International Monetary Fund economic growth projections for 2007 set off a rash of misleading headlines. Many claimed that because China will lead the world with a national gross domestic product growth of 11.2 percent, it is the "engine of the global economy." This implies what is happening in China benefits the rest of the world, when in fact it is really only empowering China. Its impact on other countries is problematic.
