Yesterday the President of the United States made a move to gain total power over the Federal Reserve. This is very, very serious. It worries me that Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke did not protest. It may mean that he has done for the Fed and for America what he was born to do. He blocked a second Great Depression from happening! But it may also mean that it is time for him to go back to teaching college economics come January, because he is now showing few signs of being a natural leader and great executive at a time when that is what the Fed truly needs. I’ll give you the details in a moment. But first a bit of history.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt tried to gain power over the Fed in the Depression 1930’s. He proposed adding the Treasury Secretary on the Federal Reserve Board and making him automatically vice chairman, instead of the New York Fed president. Bear in mind that in those days the Fed chairman in Washington was seen as little more than a figurehead. The real power in the Fed was then and had been since its founding the president of the New York Fed.(That is the job that current Treasury boss Timothy Geithner held before moving to the Treasury.) The idea of blending the Fed and the Treasury together was shot down at once by Congress… and FDR backed away. In that time before television, members of Congress were then invariably highly qualified and well informed, rather than sometimes just being possessed of a nice-looking face and able to read speeches on a teleprompter written by staffers. They knew that the Constitution gave full power over money to Congress and they denied the Administration, any Administration, any control whatsoever over the money supply.

An assault weapon is a class of weapons made out of thin air by the left to demonize certain rifles they fear in the hands of ordinary citizens. Bear in mind that next will be the attack on assault pistols then wheel guns that hold more than 2 bullets. Give them time and they will want to outlaw assault slingshots.

Oh you paranoid guys with your paranoid "slippery slope" propaganda.

Do you know where I can buy a tank as this seems preferably more safe than an SUV?

Never shopped at Walmart and never will spend a dine in their store because of their wish to make money off guns.

Walmart is the standard bearer for catering to our basest instincts. Selling assault weapons, using child labor, exploiting their "associates", ruining mom and pop businesses.
What we won't do for a bargain.

stupid too seeing as it has no measureable effect on their sales
Dear, businesses (even Walmart) need customers - my "no measurable effect" is the only way I can voice my opinion about a business who sells guns.

Walmart has its customers jinning up the gun business but I won't be contributing ....

Attention inbility!!! That's right douchebagger you stick your smelly fat behind right in the face of WalMart and tell 'em how to conduct their FFL Licensed Gun Sales. Next you will be banning those as seen on TV sets of Ronco Assault Knives. I mean can you imagine what a lanza type could do with a knife that can slice right through a huge pineapple in mid air could do to little school kids? That's a hand held guillotine and you can get about 70 knives for $39.95 plus S&H that will open up some arteries in the flash of an eye...Of course the last thing you should want in your hands during a knife attack would be one of those so-called assault weapons...how distasteful that would be for you foolish douchebagger.
So how many assault knives do you have in your home that one of your wacko relatives could get their hands on? Well turn 'em in and replace 'em all with dull plastic knives and forks like they have in a prison because a prison where criminals rule is exactly what pathetic morons like you are turning America into...now GFY.

I love you folks who deflate the danger of guns with knives, baseball bats, disease, etc. but I doubt Lanza would have killed as many people as 26 people in the short time he used his warm/cold gun.

After all, don't some of these guns have a Cyclic rate of fire = 600 rounds/min and a semi-auto rate of fire = 40 rounds/min.

Lots of damage in such a short time, huh?

Plastic knives are not designed to kill, dear friend, but guns have killed children in the time it takes someone like you to figure out which is a plastic knife and which is a plastic fork.

Yepper 20 little kids are very dead because their gullible parents left them in the hands of many very unarmed adults complying with the idiocy of a "Gun Free Zone." But why bother with any "what ifs" when you have leaders like the self-serving lord marshal b. h. obama who is protected by real Assault Weapons 24/7? Make no mistake about it...you and yours are expendable especially in the mind of a marxist who dropped out of bill ayers' behind.

Attention inability!!! A gun is only dangerous in the hands of criminals and of course incompetent morons like you who obviously are so incompetent you should not be allowed to drive much less own a gun or knife.
I call your attention to 9/11. The weapons used to kill 3000 defenseless Americans? Box-cutters. Now GFY.

Attention inability!!! Your ability to comprehend is beyond pathetic and it's a disgrace even for this forum...You can deal with your attackers with a plastic knife and I'll deal with such attackers according to my Constitutional Rights and the laws of my State. I will not be told by some twisted deranged politician who is surrounded by armed security with real Assault Weapons 24/7 how to defend my life or those who rely on me for protection...or should you under any circumstances whatsoever.
If you want to return to the days of Salem Witch Hunts where inanimate objects were placed on trial and burnt at the stake then go ahead but let me remind you they also burnt people alive for such infractions as owning 2 inches of lace and based on your spew thus far you are just as nuts...Now GFY and get some much needed mental help.
