Excerpt: "Ben Bernanke is telling people not only that the Fed won't offer any new stimulus to demand, but that if a demand surge happens through some other means, he's likely to step in to strangle the economy."

We are concerned about a recent drift towards vitriol in the RSN Reader comments section. There is a fine line between moderation and censorship. No one likes a harsh or confrontational forum atmosphere. At the same time everyone wants to be able to express themselves freely. We'll start by encouraging good judgment. If that doesn't work we'll have to ramp up the moderation.

General guidelines: Avoid personal attacks on other forum members; Avoid remarks that are ethnically derogatory; Do not advocate violence, or any illegal activity.

Remember that making the world better begins with responsible action.

Let's see now, Rick Perry get to be president in November 2012 and according to Maya predications, the end of the world will come December 21, 2012!

Yep, the Anti-Christ is here now, folks.

It is written!

We must all place our focus on changing the house and senate next election and follow Maxine Waters senitments which is to run Progressives and elect them. Obama will just be replaced by a Rick Perry or Romney or worse and we will be in even more trouble. So I think we should keep him and make huge efforts to change the house and senate the way the Tea Party did. We see how much power they have and that in my opinion is the ONLY way to make real change at this point.

We MUST get a CHALLENGER TO OBAMA FROM THE LEFT!!! Obama had HUGE DEMOCRATIC MAJORITIES FOR 2 YEARS and he would NOT fight the idiot Republicans even then. We MUST PUSH OBAMA to the left or REPLACE him from the Left.

90% of this GDP growth is MILITARISM - no productive spending - stagnation to bankruptcy.
USrael (WSJ) is already finding WMD in Syria.
And no more victory celebration in Libya - people in Tripoli do not have drinking water and dead are rotting in the street.
Week ago it was well managed/functio ning city - now it is Baghdad.
And any new demonstrators against new regime will be of course called terrorists by NYT, WSJ, London etc.

The Fed continues to be one of the main problems. It is simply Wall Street's favorite whore. No more, no less.
We need a real leader or set of leaders to finally tell America to grow up. To behave. To recognize, if we are to share this country together, we need to be considerate of all. And share a positive spirit, not a vicious, ongoing cry of fear, hatred, and demanding selfishness.
When historians look back and study our intentional demise they will see a nation's populace that had no foresight, no collective spirit, and no positive energy. They will instead see a tragic, self-imposed social suicide, a perverse sociopathic implosion.
I speak up, but usually find myself terribly, terribly alone.

.. when are you going to realize that there is absolutely NOTHING 'Federal' about The Federal Reserve Bank.. it is a private company solely interested in profit.. The Federal Reserve Bank is NOT a government institution, and it's employees are definitely NOT public servants with the interests of the America public at heart.. Bernanke's motivation is PROFIT for the shareholders of the Corporation who pay his salary and for whom he works.. The owners of the Federal Reserve Bank are ONLY INTERESTED in PROFIT and success of their 'enterprise'.. Do you really believe that the foreign recipients of funds from the Federal Reserve Bank were 'unassociated' with the shareholders of the Federal Reserve Bank ?.. YOU have provided these people with the keys to the vault and they are fleecing you blind.. WE MAY BE 'SLAVES' BUT WE CAN STILL ACT LIKE FREEMEN..

When Obama named his administration and kept a few people who created this mess in the first place I began to worry. When Obama gave the health care legislation to Baccus who excluded consumer groups and allowed big insurance draft legislation I began to really feel anxious. When Obama extended the tax breaks to get extentions to unemployment I really started to feel the anxiety. Now the AFL-CIO is cool to democrats and Bernanke is talking death.
Are we on the Titanic?
