Today, on the Ides of February, we hold our hat in our hand… we bow our head… and let our mouth fall open in amazement. Our Lenten program of fasting, prayer and meditation is producing results. We are lightheaded from near-starvation and alcohol deprivation. But our thoughts are clear. Or else, we are hallucinating.
In the last two days, we’ve taken a look at what promises to be the biggest bust-up of all time.
It began in stealth when a small group of big bankers boarded an unlisted train in the middle of the night. They all knew each other. All were from powerful New York banking families. But they didn’t even use their own names when talking to one another… so afraid were they that word of their meeting would leak out.
Then the strange little group traveled in complete secrecy to a small island compound off the coast of Georgia. There they could talk freely. But the conversation wasn’t about hunting or sports… or politics… or religion.
It was about how they could change the way America – and the world – did business. Every transaction, every purchase, every sale, every salary, every bonus, every investment gain or loss would be affected. Everything would change.
Still operating in nearly total secrecy, they got Congress to pass a law on Christmas Eve, when few members of Congress were at work and almost no one was paying attention – a law that would put vast new power in their hands. It must have been a bit like Obama’s health care plan. It changed everything. But few people read the law before voting on it… and almost no one knew what it would mean.
