Mr. Shiff

Dont go back even if you are asked again.
your missing the fact that they dont care or even understand what your saying. They have no interest in hearing it.
You're wasting your time.
theres only one solution for people like these.

Jackson County Georgia

War is an instrument entirely inefficient toward redressing wrong; and multiplies, instead of indemnifying losses.
Thomas Jefferson



part of the solution is WAKING THE HELL UP !!!

here is another great schiff video


it seems to me that they all have thier own views of bs

we have done it thier way for so long


"He's this eccentric Ghandi-Like figure that you cant touch with the normal bribes that people respond to."
the man Doug Wead on DR. RON PAUL

"I'm not hearing a solution"

It's called the free market, idiot. Man these people are so dense.

With liberty and justice for all...who can afford it.

Our "representatives" are so incredibly stupid.

One has to wonder how they've managed to survive in the world being that dumb.

A person with those beliefs

A person with those beliefs with the surname "Sherman", eh? I'm not surprised in the least.

Besides, is the "American Dream" simply owning wealth? If that was the case, then just have the govt print 100,000 and give it to every citizen. No, the American Dream is having the liberty to attain wealth under your own merits.

It's just like federal

It's just like federal student loans.

The govt sets incredibly low interest rates on the loans to be the most competitive, thereby eliminating all but a few private companies, and works together with the colleges to lower acceptance standards, thus sending kids to college who can't afford it, creating a bubble of student debt that can't be repaid, so on and so forth.

Mind Blowing..

God Almighty..these people do not have a clue!
I doubt they would be capable, if someone gave them one..

This reminds me of Elijah

This reminds me of Elijah taking on the 450 prophets of baal on mount Carmel.

1 Kings 18 : 19 Now therefore send, and gather to me all Israel unto mount Carmel, and the prophets of Baal four hundred and fifty, and the prophets of the groves four hundred, which eat at Jezebel’s table.

Schiff makes it known that congress is wrong and everyone else on the "panel" is wrong,but who will listen?

21 And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions?

Another battle between the many worshipers of Baal(government) and the very few who stand on a solid foundation.Although not in this instance,Schiff has before mocked them for there misguided worship in the accumulation of massive debts.

And at noon Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry loud: for he is a god: either he talketh or pursueth his enemies, or is in his journey, or it may be that he sleepeth, and must be awaked.

Even though some wisdom has entered there ears they will still deny it and pursue errors,piling one onto another and so on...

28 And they cried loud, and cut themselves as their manner was, with knives and lancers, till the blood gushed out upon them.

13 No servant can serve two masters; for either he shall hate the one, and love the other, or else he shall lean to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and riches. - Luke 16

that last man represents

that last man represents everything wrong with our govt.

I doubt they are stupid

It's called blankout

Hello, Peter Schiff

Body language can speak louder than words, in hearings. Unlike radio or TV a hearing is a live audience.

Without speaking one can give a visible, ongoing response, to the conversation going on around.

Focus on the remnant. Some may have been at the table with you. http://mises.org/daily/2892

Moses was right also, government intervention is disastrous. Four thousand years later and government still doesn't get it. Government is the problem.

Thanks Peter, for voicing my position so well at these hearings.

Free includes debt-free!

Poor Pete.

Why did they even bother inviting him if all they're going to hear is what they want to hear? Solution!? Every time he spoke he was giving you the solution! How arrogant are these individuals to think that there can be no solution without their direct action?

Thanks to Peter for going there and attempting to talk reason.

Same thing happened on TV

But in the end Peter was proven right.

His testimony is on the record. He said clearly that there will be huge losses from the existing program, and Congress wants to double down.

They criticized Peter's style but it wasn't his style that shook them.

Private industry can't compete with the US Treasury, why try?

Congress hurts the markets when it takes capital from possible good investments into bad investments made profitable by government subsidy or regulatory barriers to competition.

Peter said things the they found frightening when the heard them presented.

Free includes debt-free!

Info Bump....

with previous link to keep all of this together.


Peter Schiif is the man

I love how they think he is not even responding to their questions because they can't comprehend his answers. It was so refreshing to have someone yell at Congress with pure logic. I just want to take a trip to Washington and rant on every Congress member.

"We don't need a Department of Energy; we need a Department of Freedom" - RP
"We need to defend liberty.. and liberty!" - RP

they don't get it

so without the government, private investors would discriminate......WRONG! Private investors don't care what a person looks like as long as their money is good! I rented and sold to everybody, as long as they had a way to pay. The government doesn't discriminate against the people that can't afford to buy and they should because the taxpayers get the bill.

Going off a cliff

and these corpulent swine don't give a crap! When I was getting A's in school these were the incompetent stupid clowns who were ditching class to go smoke crack. They are absolutely too stupid to understand the common sense answers he is giving.


Pete's got wevos!

Nailed it and insisted on being heard! Thanks.
