“'the Secret of Oz' Banned By E - Commerce Giant”

After being sold on for only three days, a new DVD video documentary on the state of the economy has been banned by the e-commerce giant for mysterious reasons, according to the fimmaker.

"The Secret of Oz: Solutions for a Broken Economy" was officially knocked off Amazon for "performance" issues.

"You may no longer sell on our site," said Amazon in an email to Still Productions at noon yesterday.

"This came completely out of the blue without warning, and without any shred of legitimate cause," said Director Bill Still.  

An email from Amazon referred to its "customer experience metrics" page. But a check of the page showed no performance issues.

Still has appealed the ban. Amazon says they usually respond within 24 hours to appeals.

Still's documentary suggests government debt is at the root of the world's global economic problems.

"In the coming year, the federal government will spend $4 trillion, but it will have to borrow half of that from big banks, both here and abroad," he explains. "It creates a vicious cycle of government debt dependency. Government just can't say no to them – or so officials think."

This was Thomas Jefferson's main complaint about the U.S. Constitution as well: "I wish it were possible to obtain a single amendment to our Constitution ... taking from the federal government the power of borrowing."
