You want to titillate the good folks with tabloid journalism, Mags ... you know, make United People the FOX-news of the alternative media?

Or do you want to chase down and expose the really big mendacitors and audacitors that have raped, pillaged, butchered humanity on a scale worthy of a truthworthy forum, you know, the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, Morgans, Schiffs, Goldmans, Sachs, etc., etc. ... and their minions??

Maybe we should have a subsection here for the titillating stuff ... and embed it deep and out of view ... with a complimentary map, a hunting rifle, and some binoculars to locate it ... and rations for a month for those interested in chasing down useless facts to ponder near the end of times?

That's a good point. The really powerful and dangerous con-artists control the creation of money. They make the bungling con-artists on the list look like used car salesmen.
