I'm excited to report that Audit the Fed (H.R. 459) passed the House in a 327-98 vote landslide yesterday!

The demand for accountability and transparency was so massive that nearly half the Democrats in congress voted to lift the curtain on Ben Bernanke's secret manipulations of our economy.

But now the fight shifts to the Senate where a companion Audit the Fed bill (S. 202) Which will be hard pressed to even get a vote on Audit the FED in the Senate with Harry Reid around. You see, Harry Reid is

determined to protect vulnerable Democrats who desire to continue the bailouts and endless spending by denying a vote. Can you imagine, at the height of the most important election of our lifetime, any senator in a

competitive race trying to explain to their constituents why they looked the other way as the Fed bailed out the politically well-connected and devalued our currency with trillions of dollars in debt?

Global dimming?
.
Obama's fault? According to the GOP, Obama is deliverly preventing drilling for water in Federal land in the Midwest (Larry Kudlow).
.
We need to scrutinize FKing Bernanke! I hate the FED! Deliverly impoverishing the poor and the elderly (those in fixed income).

De Ja Vu all over again...how similar to that time...America in a depression,and today about to enter one...The Dust Bowl of the 1930s lasted about a decade. Its primary area of impact was on the southern Plains. The northern Plains were not so badly effected, but nonetheless, the drought, windblown dust and agricultural decline were no strangers to the north. In fact the agricultural devastation helped to lengthen the Depression whose effects were felt worldwide. The movement of people on the Plains was also profound.

Today LOONs want to blame some one or some thing...However ,its on more natural weather phenomenon!....WOE TO AMERICA!...Food now skyrockets..this while LOONS turn Food Corn into GREEN SLIME GAS...MADNESS!

At least the stock market bubbles is not crashing. The rich will have no problem pumping hundreds of thousands of fuel to their yachts and buying the best steaks and lobsters to sail for months.

And now the teabagger farmers, the farm lobby, and assorted conservative pork barrel addicts will whine & cry for their welfare fix.

(AKA increased farm subsidies to distort the free markets...)

Deficits be damned...

Lets see, you talk farmers, pork and the farm lobby. Well, The USDA is in charge of most of that and a democrat Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack is in charge. Hmmmmmm.

LOL!!!! Oops! You did it AGAIN!

You called ME a dimwit? And you misspelled your use of the possessive of dimwit?

Next time, make it "...that dimwit's..."!

That way, you won't provide us with your own irony to mock you with...

LOL!!!

Look at post 17, the only thing he can come back with is misspelling. I guess actually coming up with facts would overtax him.
