Latest Hilsenrath shill comments from the Wall Street Journal:

 

BY JON HILSENRATH

Federal Reserve officials are considering three unconventional steps to revive the economic recovery and seem increasingly inclined to take at least one as they prepare to meet this month.

 

Worries about inflation at the Fed have receded in recent weeks and economic data have worsened, putting officials on the lookout for ways to spur economic growth and improve financial conditions.

Chairman Ben Bernanke speaks Thursday in Minneapolis, and is likely to reiterate that the central bank is studying all its options, before officials meet Sept. 20 and 21.

Other Fed officials, meanwhile, are expressing support for additional action.

 

Wow- SOUNDS LIKE these YOYO PEDIGREES at the Fed stopped worrying about inflation after A WHOLE FEW WEEKS OF RECENT DATA. Did I understand that right?

wHAT A CIRCUS THE FEDERAL RESERVE IS !  qUACK QUACK QUACK.

FUCKING ZOO AND USING THE WSJ AS THEIR FAV PROPAGANDA PARROTT.

iTS A PONZI SCHEME. aND THE LIE IS GETTING BIGGER AND BIGGER/ THE FEDERAL RESERVE HAS BECOME LIKE A SOAP OPERA AND USING THE WSJ TO TRIAL BALLOON AND CONFIDENCE SCHEME.

EMPeROR WITH NO CLOTHES. Meanwhile, Ben keeps his beard neatly manicured, meticulously using voodoo words and high brow news leaks to manage our currency. Sham. it's a fucking sham.

We call their bluff, ---  simply buy gold coins and silver specimen - physcial people. Physical.

how you doing, bearing. remember how i got junked big time for telling people not to sell PM's when they wanted to sell. we were right, my friend....now the sky is limit for PM's. look out above........

Junking is just a part of the terrain here Cap'n.  You see?  Someone junked me above for a benign comment.  You know, you come onto the Internet, you put your life on the line, not just the namby-pamby stuff they do in the military (j/k of course).

Long time ago, I expressed non-sympathy for a Turkish "peace" protester (on that ship the Israelis raided), and got blown right off the thread (20 "junks" at that time, and your comment disappeard).  ZH-er ZeroHead told me it was an HONOR getting junked.  I suppose that he was at least partly correct, when they junk you, you KNOW you pushed a button!

Send me a gmail sometime X at my name above, and I will send you a link to my blog.  I write about gold and similar (+/- 60%) and the other stuff I write about is whatever I want to.  I make ZH-ers jump through the hoop (like you did not have to THAT in the .mil...) because of the nature of ZH (my blog is not Fight Club), and make them promise to behave as I write under my real name.  Over 200 readers, most from ZH, most very fine people.  Some of them are into some very advanced stuff.

Here's an example of something I am working on myself.  The link below takes you to a Google spreadsheet up there in "The Cloud", I posted this on my other blog (oriented to our customers in Peru) about new bearings that arrived to our company down there:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AhnHmH-02CQIdG1zbTY3clR1Rnlmc2NwaV96dXozbnc&hl=en_US

The above and my own work with our import company help me to learn a little something new everyday.  Zero Hedge too!

Don't worry, we are a AAA+ rated company. With this new DEBT and SPENDING and tax reduction we are sure to get the first evey AAAA+ rating. This is what top ratings look like, right? Debts over 100% GDP, endless deficits and approaching entitlement tsunamis, right? Yep, we are saved!

If the military were hurting for food, perhaps, otherwise the peeps have no money and we know how much 'liquidity' is floating around Wall Street and D.C. to PAY FOR PROTECTION.

The soldiers WOULD be in the banks and surrounding the Capital but it would be YOU and ME looking down the barrels... Look at the 'protest zones'... Unless we go FULL RETARD APESHIT ANARCHIST NUTFUCK straight to destroy-mode - nobody will listen to the populace. It would take massive 'losses' to build sympathy, if ever.

A 'million MOTHERS walk' would do it - we are a pubic hair away from full fascism
