    its the same propaganda successfully infiltrating the minds of those who cannot think for themselves.  Another fine example of this is the lie that Carter was responsible for the stagflation of the 70's when it was Nixon taking us off the gold standard (for settlement of international balance of trade payments) so he could accelerate funding of vietnam.  That caused not only the OPEC oil embargo but also the stagflation.  OPEC nations were not fond of being paid with fiat paper (only money by legal decree) for their oil.

        would provide an excellent excuse, however I just happen to believe the big money power only cares about money and little else.
