Just because he was picked does not mean the accompanying article will be friendly, why don't you wait till you read it to start vomiting all over the place.



My response is to the Award

i'm not too interested in reading an accompanying article (which themselves are opinions),
my reading stuff that is either going to be pro-Bernanke or con-Bernanke,
would not have any effect on the post i made...

it may be vomit to you,do i detect an apologist & supporter of the elitists ?,

in any case, you should make note my signature right below the post

The elite love to hand out these awards to people who serve them, it's like a good ol' boys club. It's an inside joke among them about how funny it is that they get over on you so easily, and they love rubbing your face in it. It's supposed to be an insult to the cattle.

Peace

A star from me. You have a great point. One that I have pondered many times. I believe I was put on earth for something great. I have felt that way since I was a kid. I don't have feelings of being famous, or becoming the next Lee Harvey Oswold. Maybe I'm to lead the rebuilding stage. I don't know. One thing is sure in my opinion. The world's population is waking up. Whether it be spiritually, mentally, or telepathically. Something is near. I just wonder what we can do, like you said, short of armed revolution. I have one suggestion that I gathered from another forum. Starting in January change your witholdings to max and get 100 percent of your earnings and pay your own taxes next year. Dont give the govt an interest free loan. If 10 percent of the working population did this, they'd listen. Hurt them in their wallets.

That's probably as close to the truth of the matter as you're likely to come, or anyone else, Doc.

The Time Magazine Man of the Year award is on it's way to becoming as irrelevant as the Nobel Prize.

Sarah Palin would have been a great choice. TEA Party Protesters would have been another. (It would have been a group award, but just a few years ago EVERYONE was man of the year.)

All I have to say is thank God it wasn't Obama! As much as TIME Magazine may have wanted to give it to him again...the Nobel Prize fiasco would have reared it's ugly head once again and TIME probably didn't want the backlash by awarding this failed President once again.

Well, I don't think this "Person of the Year" awarded by Time magazine has any credibility.

After all, they did choose a certain Fuhrer as "Person of the Year" in 1938.




Bernanke's nomination in this vein, is similar.

Total rubbish.

There is no "award". This is not an honor. It's simply a distinction of who had the most influence, good or bad.
As long as you continue to think of it as a good thing, you'll continue to be in ignorance.

So, someone with whom you agree politically would have been a "great choice" for this "award", huh??

:shk:

It's not an award in the sense of monetary reward, no. But as a pat on the shoulder sort of thing, it qualifies, I think.

For a week or two you can dine out on it...
. Maybe a few free drinks...that sort of thing.

Other than that? Utterly meaningless, unless you let it mean something.

There may be a line of reasoning that justifies differentiating the person of the year with an 'award,' but in a country (and to some degree world) where celebrity status makes one both politically and socially important, it seems an empty distinction.

Celebrities are accorded deference that more qualified, genuine, and socially 'better' people are not. Just look at how many people think movie stars are 'smart', 'courageous', and 'special.' Almost half of them don't qualify as "normal" or "well adjusted," and the other half are largely human trash into which media companies pour millions to 'refine their image.'

However, in the end, insofar as serving their fellow man by example or deed, Bernanke would have a hard time qualifying as anything more than a representative of the parasitical oligarchy's financial cartel.... not that Time would ever say so.

Can you effen believe that? But then again they chose Hitler too.

BUT

I think the most interesting thing about this is that they did not choose Mr. Obama. The tide doth seem to have turned.

I think this is in response to the Fed and banks in general being put under increased scrutiny by the President among others.

Also the audit the Fed bill is gaining steam and I bet this scares the hell out of them.

So they prop up the Fed by having the guy who basically use to run the place and who handles the entire US economy.

Another day in American Brain Wash tactics.

If Hitler hadn't tried to take over the world or commit Genocide among the Jewish people, then we today, would look at him as one of the greatest rulers of all time.

Along with Stalin had he not killed off all his skilled workforce and intelligencia folk.

Both those men brought their country from NOTHING to the biggest super powers of their time.

THey are the ones that really run this country anyways and he allowed them to keep their grip on American society and the American economy. Otherwise things would have imploded and they would have lost control. So yeah in their eyes he is person of the year.


exactly! both bernanke and obama are being lauded with accolades because they are the officials who have furthered 'their' agenda the most.

I think you make a valid point, but if that is what they are going for it may just backfire on them. There will be a multitude of people who never even heard of the fed that now will become aware of it.

That's also a really good point friend.

Also, I think that it will lead to the Government perhaps having to explain in more detail what the role of the Fed is. Which could lead to even more headaches for them once people realize it's a private entity.

Exactly! Time is taking knowledge of the private fed from the so called tinfoil hat people (us) and confirming it. Stupid fargin bastiches.

Just like the Nobel Peace Prize. It's a freakin tool. It has ALWAYS been a political tool. ALWAYS.

My guess would be that they could not make Obama the man of the year because he had already won the Nobel peace prize.

Oh well maybe next year.
