Yeah, the only thing more funny than this is what he usually is quoted as saying.

The bernank is doing with a couple of bond purchases what it took W & obummer trillions of dollars to do, export democracy to the middle east. might set up a grudge match with billary, as the state department struggles to help these dictators, i mean benevolent allies, conquer these hoards of beligerent ruffians.

Hate to break it to you, but the end result ain't gonna be democracy.

We can still do the 'shock and awe' routine later...this is just to tenderize them.

No way, Jose. 
Not Islamic Republics!
The shock and awe of free disposable iPads will claim everlasting fealty with the female populations thus constructively dominating the men in the naturally matriarchal societies.

Dolce and Gabbana burkas, anyone?

In US foreign policy-speak, "democracy" means neoliberal economics and a US-friendly regime.  It's been this definition for quite some time.

I enjoy The Bernank pisstaking as much as the next person but i'd love to see ZH focus on the real criminals. Like Greenspan before him , The Bernank is merely a cheap , ugly whore , taking her orders from the pimps in the shadows. The Bernank would suck off every CEO of Wall St into a glass bowl and then drink every last drop if he was told to.  Hes an idiot. Forget him. Hes a paid for slut that has no control over anything. Focus on the real manipulators. Start doing some homework.

Get rid of Bernank and there will just be another cheap slut to replace him.

Trolls.  Who in the hell can find Bernake to be a role model and inspire them.  Quaint shit.

What this guy is saying/doing is destroying our country, and these X-generation, high school bred morons are urging him on.

We need to do what the Communist Chinese did years ago, and hold a bunch of little sessions to "educate" them, or else.

You know, these punks are really good excuse for a repressive government to re-educate them.  I am slowly beginning to think that they need to be re-educated. And I am beginning to believe others in power and thinking the same.

He must be bloody desperate if a tiny decline (compared to , before the fed bought everything,  normal fundamental reactions) in the market trigged an emergency conference... he is so near to complete bust of his bank account, what will he do next?

Gets so much funnier as it gets harder and harder to tell the fake news from the real news...we have crossed over into an inverse universe where the fake news is the real stuff and the real stuff is fake.

If only the American people had the sense to revolt and tell the banksters to go to hell.

It would warm the cockles of what little heart I have to see crooks like Bernokio and Lord Blankcheque hanging from lamp posts.

The swine in control will not quit til the mobs take them down. It may be happening in Egypt now, maybe the mob will succed. The evil empire will most likely put some other stooge in power and the game will continue. The emorgency session no doubt was about just that. 

 Here at home things will have to get quite a bit uglier before spontaneous combustion happens. No doubt the hornets nest is being poked a bit, but there is a lot of smoke blown at it and all those hornets are just sooo drowsy. All that unemployment is maybe helping Joe to think a bit about what is happening to him and his family? ( I would bet a silver dollar against a greenback that the Bernank is a lot more concerned about this issue than about the pain caused by unemployment to the citizenry.)

 No, things will to get a whole lot worse before 'we the people' demand real change. Like maybe starvation? coupled with serious shortages at the pump?

 At this point shopping is still too easy for the silent majority, and we are still glad that the troops and TSA and their ilk are keeping us safe here in the good ole USA, never mind the cost.

 Thanks for the humor though!
