Your professor must have known about how the Rothschild family (from Germany), after trying since the inception of this country, finally gained control over the U.S. economy via the Federal Reserve Act which gave Congress' Constitutional control of our monetary system over to the Federal Reserve Bank, a private, for profit corporation of which the Rothschild's have their greedy little hands in.

People don't realize it, but this country is controlled by old European families who are shareholders of the Federal Reserve Bank.

No wonder Bernanke won't tell us where the bankster bailout $$ went. That bailout was the biggest act of theft in the history of the world, and the traitors who enacted it are walking around, still getting paid with illegal American taxes!

Naw, I think I'll just stick to posting my vote and supporting other people's comments with historical facts.

Thanks for the suggestion, though.

Which still does not negate my original post............that said laws were being repealed/declared unconstitutional during the 1950's.

The 1930's was the best decade ever in history. I know that the great depression and the crime were the sore of the 30s, but the music, movies, clothing and culture were the best. I didn't live the 30s, but I wish I could. The movies and show weren't mute anymore and many cartoons like bugs bunny, popeye, ect.
