The Federal Reserve keeps growing their grab bag of junk and toxic waste all the while telling the public that everything is fine. They keep hiding the waste and attempting to inflate the debt away. The U.S. dollar is getting the brunt of this and Americans are realizing that their U.S. dollar is getting weaker and weaker thanks to the Federal Reserve. Ultimately the Fed is trying to save the banking system at the expense of the U.S. public.

A lot of attention has been throw to Charlie Sheen recently given his personal issues. The reason so much focus is given his way is because of his successful TV show Two and a Half Men which is the highest watched comedy show on television. Charlie Sheen earns roughly $2 million per episode so it is no wonder why so much attention is flung that way:
“(TV Squad) So, America’s long national nightmare is over, and the nation’s couch potatoes can rest easy knowing that, not only is Charlie Sheen going to remain on ‘Two and a Half Men’ for two more years, but he’ll also continue to remain TV’s highest paid actor, earning almost $2 million per episode, more than double what he makes now.
That’s a lot of money for a guy with as much personal baggage as Charlie Sheen, enmeshed as he is in scandal that threatens to derail his show, not just because it may alienate viewers, but because he also faces potential jail time on felony charges stemming from the Christmas 2009 incident in which he allegedly threatened his wife with a knife.
Is it really worth so much trouble and the expense for CBS and ‘Two and a Half Men’ producer Warner Bros. Television to hold on to Sheen just for the sake of a sitcom that is currently wrapping its seventh season and can’t have too many years of life left in it? Is Sheen really worth nearly $2 million per episode?”
With that amount of money and the success of the show, Charlie will be in the spotlight for years to come.
