We all know that Clinton fired all of the US Attorney's when he was elected and nothing was said, but Bush fires 10 and all hell breaks loose.
This is missing the issue completely. Every president fires the last president's attorneys when they get into office. It's understandable that Clinton wouldn't want Bush Sr.'s republican attorneys, anymore than Bush Jr. would want Clinton's democrat attorneys. The issue here is that Bush Jr. fired his OWN republican attorney's midterm for not going after enough Democrats**. It is important to consider that in many close elections (where there is about a 2% swing, such as existed in the time leading up to the '06 elections) an indictment, even one that will eventually be acquitted is strong enough to help the other party win.

**Which is rather ridiculous frankly, because during the Bush presidency the offices of the U.S. Attorneys across the nation investigated seven times as many Democratic officials as they investigated Republican officials, a number that exceeds even the racial profiling of African Americans in traffic stops.

Yet we have lost both Dems and Reps to corruption over the last seven years. This just proves that even those whom we expect to be incorruptible can be corrupted.

Think of the US economic system as a large credit card.

The Federal Reserve is Citi-bank and they issued the US Government a credit card. Whenever the US government needs money they just go the US Mint access their Citi-bank visa and withdraw 10 billion. This money comes from no where, it is literally just printed up on credit. The US Government then taxes us to pay the interest that this illusionary borrowed money incurs. We all know how much trouble a person can get into with credit cards, now image that problem on the grand scale of our Government and won't take a crystal ball to see how this is going to end.

This game is NOT suitable for students, interns, apprentices, or anyone else who is expected to pass tests on a regular basis. Do not think about strategies while operating heavy machinery. Before beginning this game make arrangements for someone to check on you daily. If you find that your game has continued for more than 36 hours straight then you should consult a physician immediately (Do NOT show him the game!)
