Tim Geithner --Treasury Secretary Goes On Profanity- Laced Tirade As Bank Regulators Push Back

HUFFINGTON POST.......

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner unleashed a profanity-laced tirade on bank regulators at a private meeting last Friday, according to a Wall Street Journal report this morning. Geithner was incensed - at one point using the phrase "enough is enough" the journal reported -- over bank regulators' resistance to the Obama administration's proposed changes to financial regulatory system.

Geithner's venting was witnessed by an all-star cast of regulators including, Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke, Securities, Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. Chairman Sheila Bair
and Securities Exchange Commission Chairman Mary Schapiro.

The key issue was the role of the Federal Reserve in overseeing the financial system and its continued overhaul. Geithner and Bernanke both support keeping the Fed as the chief regulator; Bair and Schapiro argue that the U.S. economy should be monitored by a council of regulators.

Geithner was enraged, it seems, over a lack of consensus over the Fed's role. More from the WSJ:

"Neal Wolin, Treasury's deputy secretary, said Mr. Geithner told regulators 'they have the prerogative to express their views, but he wanted to make sure that, since everyone had agreed on the importance of achieving reform this year, everyone stayed focused on that goal.'

Government officials said Mr. Geithner had expected regulators to object to parts of the plan that threatened their power or authority, but Treasury officials appeared caught off guard at how much the criticism resonated with lawmakers."

Got a email, fax, and phone number for Geithner

we can contact him and demand he step down.

No let's keep him...he is helping the cause

The more desperate the FED and conFEDerates like Tim becomes the more likely we can turn the tide against them

Who TF do these people think they are

THEY BELONG IN JAIL......WTF??????????????????

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

They deserve worse than that.

Don't forget their crimes against all living things and creatures.
(this doubles the crime in my eyes).

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

Put yourself in Timmy's shoes

Imagine having to speak with a bunch of do-nothing government bureaucrats who have no idea they've been duped into believing the big lie about the "virtues of big government collectivism". The bureaucrats have no idea they're completely owned by the fed already (just like the rest of us). Poor Timmy.

The bureaucrats believe . . .

That mono crop intensive farming, vaccines and and a fast food chain are the reality for mankind.
(This perversion of nature was merely introduced in 1950. In under sixty years, the access by the people to the farms has been usurped. (monopolization of farms is collectivism's goal).
Malnutrition and starvation are now programable.

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

Flies in the Coffee

At an international conference, delegates were sitting at a long table drinking coffee when a fly landed in each delegate's cup.

The Englishman pushed his cup away.

The Frenchman extracted the fly, and drank his coffee.

The Arab ate the fly and drank the coffee.

The Jew collected up all the flies he could find and sold them to the Arab.

Ha! You need a vacation my friend.

I will remember that one.

Speaking of vacations

... where were you jarhead, I missed you !

As you know...I live in the Caribbean...

and have for twenty years. I have a "green" chemical company which I am very busy with these days in preparing for the winter season vacationers to the island. The hotels are driving me mad and I've just increased my product line by 50%. Now I have to make good on it. So, I've had some really odd hours (and days). My youngest son is about to finish college soon and I hope to be able to (finally) "semi" retire and enjoy what passes me by daily.

I'm jealous

... you are one Pirate [usmc] that didn't fall far from the tree... the Caribbean !

I love to scuba dive, snorkel, spear fish, and deep sea fishing; do you get a chance to do any ? Any uni by you :)

Wow, I hope he

loses it and shows what scum they are.
