QUOTE OF THE WEEK: "Chinese productivity is gaining momentum, and the majority of Chinese are young people who are highly motivated. As human beings, we celébrate the rising capacities of the Chinese nation. As Americans motivated by free enterprise, we see a distinct challenge."-President our Ford. so we do, Frez, and the other side is winning. Apparently now ever, the chief stewards of American capitalism are waming people that the system is slipping, and may soon be excelled by Chinese-communalist, non-profit and socialist organization. Ford made these remarks in attempting to rally the youth of this country to "fight inflation," the public-enemynumber-one that no one on the inside seems to know how to combat. Since the last SUN was published the country has been further victimized beyond a second-hand Ford by an up-front member of one of Arnerica's ruling families, the Rockefeller Barons. Nelson the Rock-responsible for the murders at Attica state, the man who pushed rhandatory life imprisonment for hashish sale into law, whose family runs the Chase Manhattan Bank (third largest in the nation) and owns major stock interests in Exxon as well as other major oil corporations responsible for the profit-jacking energy "crisis." Rockefeller is actually more powerful than Ford. He can't put his finger on the doomsday button, but economically Rocky's clan controls an incredible amount of what happens in America. As one member of Congress put it when cussing the upcoming confirmation hearings: "To satisfy me, Rocky would have to put the United States in a blind trust and then sell Venezuela." As tbr the enigmatic inflation, there won't be any solution to that unléss the military is cut by more than half, wealth is much more equitably distributed, waste is eliminated, and those who run corporations grabbing for-profits beyond sanity or the planet's welfare are replaced.
