Waterboard him then!

Waterboard whom? Bernanke or Obama's Siamese Twin separated at birth leaving all those scars on Obama's head.

Surely we can't waterboard Obama. He is doing what he's supposed to do. Divert public attention away from important issues.................LIKE WHAT THE HELL IS THE FED UP TO??!!!

Ah, it must've taken Bernanke all of five minutes to put together the speech of his first ever press conference to let America know which way the dollar is headed.

Next week, when someone sets off a nuclear device in Libya, Obama will send out a news memo as to whether or not his father was gay.


Waterboard them both! You can do anything you put your mind to.

I see what you mean, and agree to a point. Personally I think it has more to do with misdirection. I think at this point, the banks will do anything and everything to shift the psychological blame somewhere else. People fear the unknown.

Whereas the fed isnt understood by most, at least they are familiar with it. China on the other hand....most Americans only know of china what they see in video games and on the news.

Well, yes. Now that I'm sinking a second water well on my property, I'll have more water to waterboard any trespassers I capture.

Why just shoot them. Might as well have fun with my POWs.

Not that Obama's long form has anything to do with anything you's misdirection. We're all agreed on that.

But I did just get this email asking if there are any photoshop experts out there.

Between teleprompters and photoshopping, can we trust our eyes anymore? How much misdirection is there?

Well, anyway, if anyone is a photoshop buff, you can respond to this one:

An ANONYMOUS Photoshop expert emailed me and she said this detailed step by step process on how to make the same birth certificate. Of course the left wing criminals in the media will not question the validity of this document, because they are part of the conspiracy.The Birth Certificate just issued as proof of Obama's birth in Hawaii appears to have been altered in Photoshop. The document appears to have been typed on white paper then floated over official green paper (on a separate layer).The white portion of the layer containing the typewritten information was then selected by the "Magic Selection Tool" in Photoshop and then cleared - exposing the green official paper underneath. The document appears not to have been cleaned up.Residual white remains around the letters and inside the boxes containing an "X" on the Birth Certificate. This can be plainly seen when the document is enlarged to 200%. Rush Limbaugh is right that Obama's hand was forced. It is my opinion that a poorly executed falsification resulted. Take a look for yourself.President Obama's Birth Certificate PDF has "Layers"This was interesting.....are there any Photoshop experts out there? Why are there LAYERS in this birth certificate? Was this altered?

Another email, one that has a lot of what could have been said by Bernanke, if someone like Donald Trump had put a little pressure on the little fellow?

Back acha'!!

In a priceless formulation in his budget speech two weeks ago, Obama said that Americans look at the poor and say, "There but for the grace of God go I." And so, in the president's words, "we contribute to programs like Medicare and Social Security."

Except we don't "contribute." We are compelled under threat of imprisonment to take out a joint checking account with the government. Ask Wesley Snipes what happens when you fail to "contribute" sufficient alms to Uncle Sam. It's easy to find him: He's sitting in the McKean Federal Correctional Institution in Pennsylvania.

The downside of Obama's exponentially expanding government -- to the detriment of the private sector -- is that it is now impossible for young people to find work.

But there's also good news! Now there are plenty of government social workers to counsel the unemployed through their depression over not being able to find a job and to process their unemployment checks.

The unholy alliance between unionized government workers and elected Democrats has led to an explosion in taxpayer-funded government employees, who, incidentally, can never be fired.

n the 1980 award-winning PBS series "Free to Choose," Nobel Prize-winning economist Milton Friedman described the steps required to fire a civil servant:

"In January 1975, a typist in the Environmental Protection Agency was so consistently late for work that her supervisors demanded she be fired. It took 19 months to do it, and this incredible 21-foot-long chart lists the steps that had to be gone through to satisfy all the rules and all the management and union agreements.

"The process involved the girl's supervisor, his deputy director, his director, his director of personnel operations, the agency's branch chief, an employee relations specialist, a second employee relations specialist, a special office of investigations and the director of the office of investigations. This veritable telephone directory, need I add, was paid with taxpayers' money. Who could invent a better protected job than this one -- before it came to its end?"

Thirty years later, a civil servant whose poor job performance consisted of only being chronically late would qualify as "Civil Servant of the Year."

Taking only one performance problem in a single government office -- surfing Internet pornography at the Securities and Exchange Commission: In 2010, 31 employees were found to have spent their workdays downloading Internet porn in the 2 1/2 years during and preceding the financial crash that led to the greatest depression in nearly a century. One of their favorite online porn sites was "Fannie Mae Hill," while those who prefer big girls were at "Too Big to Fail."

If only Bernie Madoff had posted naked videos of himself on the Internet, the SEC might have noticed him. Seventeen of the porn-surfers were being paid government salaries of $99,356 to $222,418.

One senior lawyer at SEC headquarters in Washington, D.C., admitted to spending eight hours a day looking at Internet pornography. Sometimes he even worked through his lunch hour. He had downloaded so much pornography that his computer was full -- at which point he began burning the pornography onto CDs and DVDs, which he stored in boxes in his office.

In another classic example of the left hand not wanting to know what the right hand was doing, an employee with the SEC's Division of Corporation Finance admitted watching up to five hours a day of pornography in his office. His favorite pornographic websites were bookmarked on his government computer, and he had both downloaded and uploaded pornographic videos to the numerous websites he had joined.

Even after admitting to surfing porn all day on the taxpayers' dime, not one of the lonely SEC employees was fired, nor were their names released by the government, even in response to a Freedom of Information Act request. (Although most of them were referred for membership in D.C. sex clubs.)

These are the true beneficiaries of big government -- or our "commitments," as Obama calls them -- not the poor, the elderly, the disadvantaged, and those about whom we say "There but for the grace of God, go I."

Democrats don't resent "the rich" on behalf of the poor. They resent the rich on behalf of the government.

Put it this way, the people who make the president, they have an uncanny understanding of the psychology of the American people. One that is better than the American people understand of themselves as a whole.

Simple, really. They understand the American psyche better than anyone else because they created it. From the aptly named 1976 film "Network" :

"Because the only truth you know is what you get over this tube.
Right now, there is a whole, an entire generation that never knew anything that didn't come out of this tube.
This tube is the gospel, the ultimate revelation.
This tube can make or break presidents, popes, prime ministers.
This tube is the most awesome *expletive* force in the whole godless world!"

"So, you listen to me. Listen to me!
Television is not the truth. Television's a *expletive* amusement park. Television is a circus, a carnival, a traveling troupe of acrobats, storytellers, dancers, singers, jugglers, sideshow freaks, lion tamers, and football players...We're in the boredom-killing business!"

"We deal in illusions, man. None of it is true!
But you people sit there, day after day, night after night -- all ages, colors, creeds.
We're all you know!
You're beginning to believe the illusions we're spinning here!
You're beginning to think that the tube is reality and that your own lives are unreal!
You do whatever the tube tells you --
You dress like the tube.
You eat like the tube.
You raise your children like the tube.
You even think like the tube.
This is mass madness, you maniacs!
In God's name, you people are the real thing;....We are the illusion!"

The owners, the handlers if you will, of our government have gone to great lengths over the last sixty or so years to shape how we think through television, radio, and any other medium they can.
