I am sitting here watching an entertaining session of Congress questioning our two compromised representatives of the US Dollar - Paulson and Bernanke.

While Ron Paul has been accused of having lost his marbles as I often have in the last 9 months, he asked THE QUESTION. "Who is in charge of the US Dollar"?

Of course Paulson's answer was fully loaded with both the stutter and lack of content as I am painfully getting used to hearing.

Paul's statement (within his question) included the lack of a US Savings Rate, negative real interest rates, re-regulation, and Federal Reserve inspired inflation.

Sometimes the guys who sound like they have a few screws loose, are the only guys with a screwdriver.

We fix this mess by raising interest rates.
