Watcher’s of Weasels Ding Dong Osama’s Dead Edition – May 4, 2011

I am especially honored to receive an Honorable Mention guest post from the Watcher’s of Weasels Council for one of my articles on the Federal Reserve. None of us know what to expect for our economic future, with Bernanke recently telling us, hey everything’s all good, when we know, decidedly, that nothing is all good, or even a little good. Again I want to thank Lew Rockwell for his interview with David Galland (find the link in my article below), which fueled the article. A heart-felt thank you to the Watcher Council which does such amazing work, offering some of the best writing on the web. Results of the following nominations will be available on Friday.

Welcome to the Watcher’s Council, a blogging group consisting of some of the most incisive blogs in the ‘sphere, and the longest running group of its kind in existence. Every week, the members nominate two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council.Then we vote on the best two posts, with the results appearing on Friday.

This week’s contest is dedicated to Navy Seal Team Six – The guys who actually pulled off the mission.
