Now who's the richest man in the world?

You may have heard that Warren Buffet recently surpassed Bill Gates again as being the richest man in the world. But, the media missed an even bigger event. Completely without warning, without notice or prediction another man has completely eclipsed Warren Buffet by almost 10 times - maybe more! You may have heard his name - Henry Paulson.

Henry Paulson made his wealth rapidly by happening to be at the right place at the right time. In less than a week, Henry Paulson hit the greatest lottery of all time! $700 BILLION DOLLARS! That's right - congress gave Mr. Paulson your money and your children's money to spend almost as he pleases. While he can't put a Billion in his back pocket, there's nothing to stop him from making all kinds of new friends and swaddling old ones who will make sure he benefits from his handouts somehow.

If you don't think that's possible, just check your congressmen and state leaders. Great plan. But wait, it gets better.

So, up until this point, congress's main control over the executive branch was through finance. If the executive branch wants to do something that costs money it has to either ask congress or sponsor a black ops mission that sells arms or drugs to raise the money covertly. Now, congress just gave the executive branch $700 Billion - almost an entire years budget free and clear. The executive branch won't have to ask congress for anything until it runs out of money again! It can do almost anything it wants. SWEET! Good plan. Ron Paul, please save us all.
