Leaving us for dead

Dear Editor:

Do you remember Alan Greenspan, former chairman of the Federal Reserve Board? He appeared before a congressional committee for his explanation of the meltdown. He said, “I didn’t see it coming.” Really? He was paid to “see it coming,” and he caused it by raising interest rates 525 percent from 2001 to 2005.

I call him and a few others “our internal financial terrorists.” Guess what his latest remark is about the fiscal cliff? Bring it on, says Greenspan.

Is he nuts or just full of himself? Maybe worst, he is in his 80s.

It seems his main business is to destroy our economy as often as possible. Thanks, Alan.
