The Federal Reserve Bank under Bernanke began the Quantitative Easing policies in 2008. Quantitative easing is a policy whereby the Fed keeps interest rates down by buying bonds.

A short look. If a bank lends money at 2% then after maintenance on the loan there is only an additional 1% collected by the bank. It can't lend much and can only pay very minimal on deposits.

If it can only pay .05% on deposits then most will put their money somewhere else and that too decreases the amounts banks can lend.

The same impacts are felt throughout the system in the Quantitative Easing Policies. In June of this year, Bernanke made a statement that it might be time to begin the end of Quantitative Easing. The market dropped. Most who know about money are anticipating a big problem when the QE program is terminated.
Yes...I agree. Because of the Quantitative Easing Policies possibly ending I will need to put another deer in the freezer before this month is out. I made kabobs this evening from large shrimp and thin cut deer steaks. I cooked the meat real slow and added very few spices (salt, pepper and a touch of steak seasoning). OMG was it good. Money on the other hand has never been too important to me but I am building 2 great government Defined Benefit Retirement plans in my family...is that good?

Climate change is real. If all Democrats in the U.S. would simply give-up their internal combustion engines and walk the carbon footprint of these type automobiles would be reduced with thousands less pounds in particles circulating in our environment. Walk or ride a bicycle and you might reverse climate change. I don't know, it might be to late. You could take a little hand cart or pull a wagon behind your bike to put your stuff in or take your Mom to the Doctor. Please Democrats, show you care and save all of us.

You Republicans need to build a corner store in my neighborhood. It is your capitalistic ideas that put the big box stores out at the edge of the city that cause me to have to have a car.

The idea is that it will take a concerted action that changes how we live to solve the problem. While individual action will absolutely help, it is social policies that will need to be developed to change the way we live in the future.

Blame anyone but yourself for your fossil fuel choices.

In fact, Democrats like the Clintons and Obama led the globalization movement, forcing out local business. The Republicans nominated and elected Donald Trump on and antiglobalization platform.

Sounds more like a religious problem than a real world problem. Tried and true solutions work, not climate change mitigation pseudoscience. We've always adapted to climate change, nobody has demonstrated the benefits of mitigating climate change.

People voted for Trump because they thought he can make capitalism work again. Isolationism is not going to put folks back to work.

The term 'climate change' is a nonsensical term. It doesn't mean anything. You can talk about different climates, but they cannot change. The term 'climate change' is just another attempt by the Church of Global Warming to whitewash itself with a new marketing term.

Engines don't add any particles to the environment at all. They simply re-arrange molecules (the 'particle' you are referring to).

So...you think that CO2 put out by bike riders or pedestrians exerting themselves and producing CO2 doing it is better than the CO2 put out by a car?

Not too late. Global Warming is a religion, perpetuating a religious doctrine.

No one is forcing you to shop at a big box store, dumbass. You want a corner store in your neighborhood? Start one!

What problem? That you prefer big box stores and their huge inventories? Heck, some of these places are getting big enough you'll need a car to drive around INSIDE the store. Oh, wait...they already have that.

Wrong. People voted for Trump because they are tired of government getting in the way of capitalism. They are tired of the high taxes, the regulations that make it attractive for companies to move abroad, the unfair trade treaties, and the fascism.

Trump is not talking about isolationism. He wants international trade.

The sheeplings, as you put it, were/are the gullible Democrat voters who let the DNC do their thinking for them, to the point that they believe and regurgitate whatever they are told and they hate on command.

I'm not a Democrat, so it isn't like some football rivalry to me. Obviously it is to you. No matter what hate you >feeel< about the DNC coaches and quarterback, it doesn't make The Donald adequate for the position you put him in. He isn't even qualified to be a third stringer.
Since you brought up Hate, just why was it Trump was compelled to directly address his fan base committing >hateful< and bigoted assaults immediately after the election?
According to Facebook, the Trump train posted nearly twice as much disinformation than the Clinton camp. I'm sure you're hot and heavy about "Hillary lied", but I'd bet you're >intentionally< unfamiliar with Trump's fact checker reputation.

I'm appalled and dismayed at all the carbon monoxide that's emitted when volcano's erupt. Something needs to be done. Maybe installing huge filters over them or stuffing Al Gore's large butt into one of them might help. Hillary has a large butt also that could be used. Obama's skinny little butt would not block much but let's use him anyway.

A volcanic eruption is more than all the smog in the world. It changes weather patterns. Los Angeles city counsel said fat people are causing earth quakes. Now they changed it to fracking causes earth quakes. The truth is city counsel officials have what looks like egg white all over their face or its pud juice, and when two plates under the earths crust press against each other it causes an earthquake. That's the whole truth. Fat people and fracking, that's like saying Syrian Muslims don't eat baby back ribs and honey baked hams for Christmas.

Coral reefs are dying off, the ozone layer is being depleted, some species of animals are in danger of harm or becoming extinct. Our waters are polluted as well as the air we breathe. Regulations have helped to curtail some of the worst effects. But if Trump lifts regulations on water, air and the food we eat, we're going to be in bigger trouble then ever. Climate change is more serious then it ever was because we are a much much larger population then ever before. We keep spewing poisons into the environment everyday and expect that there will be no effects from it? This has been going on for a long time. It makes sense that sooner or later, we were going to reap the effects. It's happen right now and has been going on for some time. If we don't take immediate measures to help protect us from further harm, we may all be doomed to a fate we can't imagine or fathom.

Nowhere near as much as they used to be. People like me cleaned a lot of them up.

No. That technology we built is not going to go away. The market demand for modern car engines and even electric cars is not going to go away. The market demand for good food is not going away.

The term 'climate change' is a nonsensical term. Global Warming is an assumed 'catastrophe' with no data to show it's even happening or not.

We use poisons for beneficial use. They work.

We already do. We have better food supplies, cleaner water, and even cleaner air, all thanks to poisons.

The reason the air and water were cleaned up was because the government demanded it. Industry could care less.

No. These regulations were passed AFTER the technology was developed.
