    Why is a Deutsche Bank mouthpiece suggesting “negative retail deposit rates or perhaps wealth taxes”? The answer is to (supposedly) stimulate our economies.

Chuck Schumer To CTRL-P "Get To Work Mr. Chairman"... For The Benefit Of My Donors

Tyler Durden's picture


Yes, Chuck Schumer just said "Get to work, Mr. Chairman" right after saying that "The Fed is the only game in town... You have to take whatever actions are necessary to ensure a strong recovery." What he really meant is that my biggest donors demand a solid bonus for 2012. Who are these donors you may ask? Here they are.

If you have representative democracy and fiat currency, I cannot see any way that your 'democracy' will not end up being owned by the people who create and distribute the money.

It's as certain as entropy and gravity.  It's thermofreakingdynamics.

The feeble politicians are beginning the serious blamegame and will place the big fail around the neck of the Fed whose 100 year reign is closing down.

Following that theme, can you create an image showing an elder Private Ryan (or Bernank/Schumer) standing before Amschel Mayer Rothschild's headstone, saluting, and asking if he's been "a good person?"

I always hoped that Chuck Schumer would be a decent centrist Democrat who cares about fairness, social justice and the integrity of the market.  Over the last few years I have become convinced he is none of those things.  It is very dissapointing to realize this man has become or always was a Shill for Wall Street Banksters.  I know Senators must represent their contituents and need campaign contributions but I mistakenly thought that a fair number of them would be able to rise above those parochial needs when the nation is in peril or in the case of gross malfeasance against the country.  Schumer has clearly not been capable of that. For me its a sad and slow awakening.

Matrix is a fun, glossy modern packaging of the concept of imprisonment of senses for the sake of parasitism, but if you want profound, see George Lucas: THX 1138. The metaphors are much more grounded in normal, real experience and the message is thus more impactful.  Plus, you're looking at Robert Duvall vs. Keanu Reeves...whoa

You are SO correct.  I saw that as a kid by happenstance on TV long ago....need to go back and rewatch it again.  Thanks for the reminder.

It's one of those life-changers.  Makes Matrix look like a bazooka joe comic. Lucas revisited it and reissued with a few subtle changes.

What do you mean by "social justice "? What do you mean by fair? Did you grow up in a world that is fair or better stated is nature itself fair? Do you blindly look out into the natural world seeing only harmony? Nature is viscious, each and every being, plant or microbe is in it for themselves, even against one of it's own. In all of this chaos the appearance of harmony is an illusion, and for those unaware it is the source of silly notions such as "fairness".

And, of course, it's never occurred to you that we might someday evolve enough collective intelligence, compassion and empathy to rise above all that? Hasn't shown much sign of happening yet, though, I'll grant you!

Besides, the natural world is full of examples of cooperative behaviour, though admittedly not often when there is any real competition for scarce resources.

The belief that "we could use rational thinking to improve life on Earth" is a liberal conception, and you know how folks feel about "liberals" around here.

So how about you use some of that rational thinking (and I know you're capable of it, given that you're often one of the most coherent posters on here) and move beyond the Red v Blue / Liberal v Conservative / Conservative v Labour / Bullshit v Another kind of Bullshit paradigm... and formulate some solutions? The human race is very likely done on this planet unless we do something about the shit-heels in our gene-pool. Quit being part of the problem and be part of the solution!

Humanity provides plenty examples of cooperative behaviour; it just better when the cooperation is mutually agreeable and mutually beneficial.  Kinda like if we had  real free markets.

Precisely! But we ain't gonna get that because a free market doesn't automatically give preference to... let's go out on a limb here... Steven Prescott Fuckface Bush... because he happens to have a few bucks in the bank. A FREE market would punish stupidity, greed, mendacity and bad behaviour. And we can't have that, now can we!

Most interactions in nature are symbiotic.

Everything chooses direct competition only as a last resort.

"Most interactions in nature are symbiotic"

False premis, while some such relationships or interactions if you must exist the VAST majority are opportunistic. The entity that best takes advantage is ALWAYS the winner at the expense of all others.

What is social justice? Nobody has ever explained how it differs from common or garden variety justice.

It's usually a false flag for dividing and conquering, which is standard Democrat operating procedure. So we have a society divided into groups, some of which are designated victim groups (blacks, gays, women, Muslims), and some are designated villain groups (The Rich, whites, men, Christians, etc).

Dodd, Frank, Schumer and Obama get to pretend to regulate high finance (an industry from which none of them originate, and which they don't understand at all), while actually taking cash to protect and sustain the entrenched Wall Street establishment firms at the expense of, well everything else and everybody else.

Why anybody votes for Democrats is a total mystery to me, they are parasites, hypocrites and thieves. Republicans are only marginally less so. And both are sworn enemies of actual liberty and actual free markets.

Schumer is a fucking ass-wipe.

God damn idiots like him make me mad.

He is useless as tits on a bull, in a political body, that is worse than useless, and he is asking the Chairmen to get to work. Would have been awesome if Bernanke had turned around and said: "right after you Mr. Schumer".

Everyone knows more QE will cause a bit of inflation and a small asset pop (stock market wealth effect). THAT IS IT. So basically, the useless Schumer, is asking the Fed to do something even though that action will have no measurable effect. Why is it that the Senate, is asking the "independent" Fed, to do something, when it knows that any further action is useless? Perception of doing something somehow makes a useless Senator feel better? Is the Fed now in the business of making Senators feel better over their failure to do even the most basic parts of their job?

I HATE it when the Senate Banking Committee makes me feel for the Chairman.

Shills like Schumer are being more than adequately compensated for their "work". Many of these dudes have very nice stock & bond portfolio's due to inside info. And I am sure they have been given lots of envelopes with cash in it. They are being richly rewarded. Traitors!!
