"Colbert Takes On the Fed" is what...

the article is titled at the Huffington Post, and here is the link to that:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/12/09/colbert-takes-on-th...

Responding to what he calls claims that the Federal Reserve is a "secretive cabal that only benefits the well-connected," Colbert sounded practically Bernanke-ian. The Fed needs its autonomy and its clandestine meetings, Colbert said -- and the "puff of smoke" that "comes out of the Fed chimney announcing whether the economy has seen its shadow.

That was terrible; a few cute jokes

about the Fed, then a long, phony rant against "capitalism" which they blame for the ills of corporatism while Sanders extols the wonderfulness of the Scandinavian model of socialism. Neat turn by Sanders from the government cause of the Fed's power and robbery toward his favorite target, the free market.

So far, no mention of Ron Paul

although any criticism of the Fed reflects back on Ron Paul favorably.

To get to the video, I just clicked on "Episodes" and it came right up.

Nothing is more deadly than ridicule

"Passing through the stargate to receive the interest rate from the aliens who built the pyramids." LOL

When everyone is laughing at the "emperor's new clothes" the game is over and the tailors are going to the gulag.

This is as important as the WSJ story over the weekend.

Tried to Fix the Link

Hey guys. I tried to fix the link, but IDK if it worked. If not, I'm sorry, but go to the website and take a look. Colbert seems to "get it".

Please fix your link. And

Please fix your link. And talk to your QA department. I don't think it was ever tested.

I don't love Colbert, are you kidding? But he is definitely spot on on so many things.
