Bernanke before the Joint Economic Committee 10/4/11

[MarketWatch] - Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke will appear before the Joint Economic Committee on Tuesday at 10 a.m. Eastern to discuss “the economic outlook.” He’ll face questions from across the political spectrum, from the only elected socialist, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, to tea-party favorite Jim DeMint, the Republican senator from South Carolina.

Rather than try to predict what will be asked, here’s MarketWatch’s stab at what could be timely questions for the central bank chief...

"How did we do? Was it convincing enough?"

Answer: No

Giving BerSnakey too much credit

It seems like these people are asking BerSnakey questions that they should be addressed by congress.

They are giving BerSnakey too much Credit, He is the one creating these problems.

Just a bunch of shaved down monkeys in suits

That's all these people are.

Sanders hamering Bernanke

Sanders hamering Bernanke about financial institutions charging excessive interest rates. Bernanke won't look him in the eye and is trying to dodge the question!

Culinary nonsense! Uncle Ben serves by the boatload!

Our ship of state is so full of paper promises, tis a wonder where they can load more. Even gluttony will not clear the deck of these paper shuffles.

Shovel-ready? Ha! Gonna need a steam-shovel tractor!

Each Queen Elizabeth (QE 1 & 2) launched, took on a lot of water (liquidity) & sank. Wet docked. Now, he & the Boyz propose launching fleets of paper boats? Has Ben consulted the Queen?

Might someone suggest launching something besides fleets of paper boats? Before they all sink?

Nice question.

Answer: Not a fair question.

Protests on Wall Street question also.

WOW

His voice sounds shaky.

Remember this interview? Very interesting to look back and listen to his words nearly 1 year ago. Why do we care what this man says anymore?

What a Waste of Freaking Tme! Bernanke to Lie Under Oath

Bernanke to Lie before Joint Economic Committee 10 AM ET

Bernanke Prevaricates Concerning Economic Growth

Before The Joint Economic Committee Film live --10 AM ET

"Hence, naturally enough, my symbol for Hell is something like the bureaucracy of a police state or the office of a thoroughly nasty business concern." ~~C.S. Lewis
Love won! Deliverance from Tyranny is on the way! Col. 2:13-15

Ah, but there is...

The sum of Bernanke today was: joining up with the Senate bill, to prevaricate, to find wiggle room, to create more war by blaming China, and obfuscating the responsibility of the rule of Congress over the Fed! (Take note of Sen. Schumer's speech on the floor today, regarding the currency and sanctions for China. He quoted Bernanke, with large chart!)

"There is no difference between an authoritarian government from the right or the left...F. A.Schaeffer"

Knew the late F.A. Schaeffer; have a close friend who also lived with them in L'Abri...

Yet, there is a difference:

The authoritarian government from the right, demonstrates it's congruency with the left; whereas the authoritarian government from the left, it's congruency with the right! In essence the whole exercise demonstrates the obfuscation exercised by those who hide behind the paradigm!

Right and left are body parts with which all creatures eat, throw things, and think; they are existential, the way we turn, the sides of a house, or river bank. They are not good and bad, right and wrong, greater or lessor tyranny, good or bad political parties!

There is no left or right. There is truth, and there is the lie. There is moral in God's law, reflected in rights unalienable by man.

There is liberty under God, His rights, His common law, His granted freedoms. Then there is slavery under sin, under tyrants, under counterfeiters, or under the evil of asking a king to rule over us!

The former brings peace, blessing, abundance. The latter brings 'lords and serfs'... serfs with with cool toys, but serfs nonetheless.
