Is there something in the water of El Dorado County? Am I alone; am I the only person who has to keep smelling salts at hand when I open the Mountain Democrat? I frequently have to fact check my own eyes as I read much of the contents. I am not a journalist, but I can’t believe that the “editors” of the Mountain Democrat have any training in the profession, or much of anything else. From where I stand, this paper can best be described as a right wing organ. Who is Dawn Hodson? What qualifies her to write an article about the Federal Reserve? Someone who starts by saying, “Contrary to what is taught in government schools …” suggesting some kind of state conspiracy, has immediately announced her agenda, and discredited the contents of the screed. Further, she refers to “authorities” of questionable credentials. If you want to use your space and my time constructively you might address the question of how do you manage a modern country without a central bank?
And please, give the byline to someone who shows some respect for education.
