"swap agreements," "forward rate agreements,"
"Turbo warrants," and "the undertaker" (Ayn

have got the entire bailout matter shelved. And then he could have
traveled to Mississippi as the war hero who also saved America from
a horrendous Mercury retrograde deal.
how many secret astrologers there are in the U.S., he would be a
