Does that statement not imply therefore that monkey business IS going on?
They really do need to investigate the FED, regardless of the outcome.
Also curious that Bernanke is defending the FED so adamantly.

Basically what is happening(to the people who do not understand) is take but dont ask where it came from policy.
Think of the fed as a drug dealer...
Think of our govt as the drug warehouse....
Think of the people as the addicts....
The drug dealer supplies the warehouse with their drugs. Then the warehouse stores and distributes the drugs out to the people by truck,van,pigeon,ect to the addicts.
What is happening is that our warehouse is out of drugs, because our addicts are consuming so much, but have no way to pay back these drugs because they never had the money to pay in the first place. So now our warehouses are in trouble, so they order more product with more interest in order to keep the addicts happy for the time being(but in the end all they are doing is bankrupting us even more and the FED is more than happy to do it because thats more money in their books) with that and other players around the world buying our bonds(but no need to get into that in this example). Now the addicts(the people) notice that they are paying out more money for fake goods that mean absolutely nothing, eventhough it gets them the bread, its basically giving them less for their money until it all evens out(which it wont because its too far in).
So now the addicts want to audit the fed to see how bad they are really screwing over the people, but the FED doesnt want that because that would basically let the addicts know how badly they are being screwed over. so Now the dealer is threatening hell on earth if we look at their books.
In a nutshell.
(mods)-please dont delete this post because I used drugs as an example, in no way am I promoting or endorsing drugs, or drug use. Some people just need to have it painted out for them in a way that they can understand. Thank You.

So we have crimes that are "too horrible to prosecute."
Have you guys thought about the other possibility? That he's actually begging for a chance to right things under the cover? Maybe there is still a chance to make things right, to do the repairs if given enough time, but not if all the damage is truly exposed all at once.

You can write candidates in. I wrote Ron Paul in last election.
You know how many people wanted to vote for him but think the way you do? Couple that with the number of people that know they can write candidates in but are more interested in voting for a candidate that is MORE LIKELY to win (thereby making making their vote count "more"...where's the logic on that, I don't know?), and "they" would have crapped their pants if they saw these people actually writing in a candidate like Ron Paul.
THAT is what makes your vote count more. Read my sig. We need to make them fear us more. Right now, they laugh at us for being so ignorant and gullible. If there was a major write in campaign that got Paul some serious votes, they would actually be afraid that their illusions of a two-party system would start to unravel.
