Well! Are we ready for more *messages* to be sent? Ron meet horse's head. Horse's head meet Ron.
And that is "c"itizen, not "C"itizen, a very important distinction. One of the major points of the 14th Amendment.
Vitter is one of my senators. I have been e-mailing and calling him religiously. Maybe it worked, maybe it didn't, but you don't know unless you try. I urge everyone to contact their senators and reps.
Got to give the man credit...he keeps fighting the fight. Pretty sure most would have given up years ago.
The fact that almost noone else is fighting is evidence supporting that. That, or most never fought it to begin with.
Most of them got the message when Wellstone got whacked. Dr. Paul probably enjoys his horsehead with a fine chianti.
I am over audits. I want to burn the building down, and tell the Fed "m"oney "m"akers they are out of a job.
That was the best comment I read this week. Seriously, I feel your pain.
Good luck with that one :)
I'll see you on CNN bro!
I think you will see me and thousands of others then, on that there tube ;)
Mr Hendrix, This is hotel Gitmo calling to confirm your reservation. How many keys will you be needing sir? Would you like the keep the Osama Bin Laden "waterbed" suite?
Now that's funny!
Does it come with kidney dialysis? I will also need an internet connection and wet bar in my cave.
If U.S. Citizens had listend to Ron Paul over the past 30 years...well if Woody had gone to the police none of this would have ever happened.
Hahaha! I have the same feeling in my stomach when Geithner was nom'd for TS. Unbelievable.
OMG this is SERIOUSLY the proof we've all been looking for! Conspiracy!!
Grow up, that was her job as solicitor general. She is the appellate lawyer for the US in Federal Court. So what.
Buy gold, or die.
No wonder Obama want's this Goldman Sachs escort on the Supreme Court.
She passed the deep throat test. Man or woman, it doesn't matter. Anyone who wished to play must pass the deep throat test.
Woodward was Scull and Bones. I hope everybody already knew that.
Deepthroat was a black ops program run by the FBI, concieved and coordinated by the CIA and promoted by the WaPo owner and Woodward.
Everyone doesn't know that because they made a movie about it, so what happened in the movie must be true, otherwise they wouldn't have made a movie about it. At least that's what my brother tells me.
The more I learn about the unaccountable, corrupt, manipulative, and literally sociopathic nature of the Federal Reserve, the more my mind reels from the sheer magnitude of the pernicious parasitical elitism and absolute evil inherent in its very existence.
Taken over the 97 years of its existence, I sincerely believe that there is no criminal enterprise in our nation's history that can even remotely compare to this rapacious tapeworm that continues to drain more and more of the economic lifeblood from the American economy. And to add insult to injury, most of the increasingly anemic hosts of this monstrosity have been brainwashed into believing that its presence is necessary for their very survival, when the truth is precisely the opposite.
give 'em hell, dr. paul!
I like 1/2 of what Ron says and does. But big question is "Can you handle the truth?" Meaning the American public.
This is how congress works. Legislation that is lobbyed against by the elite but supported by the people needs to be watered down. Compromise the original objective. Replace any effective measures then pass it as a success. Citizens rarely follow the process.
Back and to the left, back and to the left...
Oh please, the rest of the world has been bailing out Uncle Sam for decades. it's pay back time!
You really mean that the USA has been thieving from the rest of the world for decades, via the status of the US dollar as the world's de facto reserve currency. Agreed, but two wrongs still do not make a right.
Leo, I am generally happy to give you lots of poetic license but this stuff about others "bailing out" the US is pure bullshit. I would love to have back the trillions of dollars we wasted on keeping our troops in Europe, for example, unwrapping candy wrappers while giving the Europeans a free ride on their own military expenditures. The same goes for the Japanese. Do you think the price of oil is where it is and all those corrupt Middle Eastern sheikdoms are safe because they are protected by the Greek air force? Nothing would please me more than to pull out all of the US troops from the Continent and see just how good all of those wonderful European economies look then.
The only reason the US is in the Middle East is because it wants to control oil supplies. As for bailing out the US, ask the Chinese how they feel like after funding your massive trade deficit. Admittedly, they're doing it to support theri exports, but this talk of the US being the world's savior makes me wanna hurl!
" ...this talk of the US being the world's savior makes me wanna hurl!"
" ...this talk of the US being the world's savior makes me wanna hurl!"
As does your explicit support for the monstrous and unsustainable crime of the worldwide, central bankster-controlled and benefitting, fiat currency monetary system make many of us want to hurl as well.
Until honesty, transparency and sustainability are restored to our monetary system(s), no real financial reform is meaningful, or possible.
I am not suggesting that the US is or even was the world's savior but I do ask you to consider that in the years after the second world war, the Western world's financial situation was not unlike that of the Club Med countries after entering the euro: you had weaker economies who benefitted from interest rates probably lower than they should have been given the respective countries' fundamentals. After WWII, Europe benefitted from the economic and military "umbrella" that the US provided.
The same is true of Japan. Everybody won from that game. Things begam to fall apart here with the deficit spending of a war and domestic programs of the '60s (sound familiar) and it took the Volcker Fed to try to get us back on track. But I do think that saying that the US has had a free ride because we were the exchange currency is not only unfair, but also inaccurate.
Somewhere in the dim recesses of my memory, I remember a communist takeover attempt in Greece that the US may have helped avert; until the communists decided it was easier to do it through the ballot box.
My grandfather fought with the Americans in WWI. My father did his psychiatry residency in Chicago. The US was good to my family. The US Army paid my grandmother a pension after my grandfather passed away till her dying days. Believe me when I tell you that we owe a debt of gratitude to the United States of America.
But the US of those years is not the same United States now. Neither is Greece for that matter. The world has changed, and not always for the better.
Leo, we are in complete agreement on the words and substance of your last paragraph. Let us drink to better days. And to more of your well chosen photos from Google images.
I often think about what the older generation achieved and think how spoiled we are. This culture of entitlement where everyone is looking to scam the system has destroyed us. Those values that come straight from Wall Street are destroying the fabric of our society. It truly is a shame. Yes, let's drink to better days. Cheers.
Countries (companies) that seeks to prosper via Mercantilist Customer Finance policies (programs) wherein the customer dilutes into oblivion (defaults on) the incurred debts, have made their own beds. Sleep well.
Eurodollars plunged on Thursday creating a wave in the interest rate swaps market. The largest cash market in the world. These swaps are what most ETFs actually trade, not baskets of stocks. Is it a coincidence the majority of stocks NASDAQ froze were ETFs like FAZ? Stocks designed to profit off a market crash failed on Thursday.

GTM: Wow! Thank you for an excellent report- FinArmZombies. You should
write a textbook for 9th graders. If we overcome now, your book will be in the schools in 3 years.
Really good article.
Called my Senators this morning urging them to vote no on Sander's sellout and to vote Yes on S. Vitter's amendment. Bet Sanders votes no on Vitter's amendment. Sellout
Senator Vitter's Amendment is S. 3760. This will replace the text of Senator Sander's ammendment, (S. 3738), with text consistent with S. 604
The vote on S. 3738 is scheduled for tomorrow according to Senator Vitter's office.
So, does that mean we have another "i don't know, it seems like a fat finger" crash tomorrow?
Don't give up, Ron. I support you 100%. These crooked crony capitalists posing in pictures as doing good for the American people need to be put in prison.
80% of all Americans... that's a heck of a lot of phone calls...
I even wonder if 2% actually knows about what Paul is talking...
80% of Americans support this. Why has it met this much resistance? Why are they trying to compromise it, for the other 20% behalf. This shows you that you have very little representation in D.C. . This is a golden opportunity when public sentiment is united, we the citizens will be to blame if we let this slip away.
Don't worry, Harry has already bought the gas to fuel the fire... Where the hell is Harry anyway?
a quick pop-up to gain a couple of percentage points in the NV primary then back into his hole... the man has no idea what he stands for... except elections
For an explanation on the watering down of the Audit the Fed Amendment coming directly from Sen. Sanders on the Thom Hartmann Program today, please refer to my questioning of him beginning at 2:35. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66OWjuYeTXI
What do people expect from a FED audit?
I mean people who are so into that FED audit stuff.
What do they expect to find?
And another question is that if people want to terminate the FED thanks to an audit, what is it they think to cause the end of the FED? What has the FED so disturbing to hide that it could end it if revealed?
"What do they expect to find?"
Government sponsored securities fraud.
