Alan Grayson, are you trying to make me fall in love with you?

Sorry pal, but I'm taken.  In the meantime, for the rest of the hetero-curious, check out this guy taking Bernanke behind the shed once again (in a good way =D).  Grayson has been front and center, standing shoulder to shoulder with Ron Paul (my only allowed man crush - don't think the little lady will grant me another), in his effort to uncover the deceit and BS that the Federal Reserve has been shoveling.  Enjoy!

Oh man, are the Progressives going to be red-faced when they find out the Libertarians have been right about the Fed all along.  Do you think they'll still call us nutjobs?  What about the JBS?  The freaking John Birch Society knows more about the Fed than the Progressives do.  Oh man, that's rich. You don't how much this makes me laugh, unless you've been with us for a long time, getting mocked and ridiculed by these intellectually-vacant rent seekers.

I love Bernanke's attitude: "We can do what we want. We have the authority. You don't.  If we want to give the New Zealanders a half trillion dollar loan while Americans are suffering, then we'll do it and you can't say a word about it."

I LOVE IT! That is government by the people, for the people alright!

I think my BS meter was maxing out listening to Bernie.  I am not really a libertarian, but most of my views are very much aligned and I would definitely vote for Ron Paul.

And let's go way back in time to 1983. Here Ron Paul debates the Federal Reserve governor. Brilliant!

I notice on the front page of TMF, they're asking the community if Bernanke should get another term. Ha!  Like I care if a man with the authority to steal our money should get another go at it or be replaced with another man with the authority to steal our money.  Where do I sign up for this job?

Also, most foreign investors HEART Bernanke.  And why wouldn't they?  He keeps giving them our money.  If I was in NZ, getting $3,000 from Bernanke last week just because I asked, I'd think he was sweet too.

Wow.  I'm impressed, Alan Greyson made Bernanke, who is quite an intelligent guy - to understate things, look like a buffoon.  I'm not sure how much was just pure political point scoring and parleying (asking particular dates made Benanke look foolish, but in reality it's not his job to be a historian).  But he made his point pretty well.  If you are spending half a trillion dollars you should be able to say where it is going.  At least spend a million dollars (a pittance in comparison) on some junior analysts to research where the money is going. 

PS.  I'd like to turn into a woman just to fall in love with him also.

PPS.  I thought the guy in the 3rd video won the argument or what-ever you want to call it with Grayson.  Obviously Bernanke and the woman in the second did not.  I doubt any money was spent corruptly or not in the best interest of America.  But with the incredible sums involved, to be unable to employ a few number crunchers to at least defend the decisions smacks of extreme unprofessionalism.  If someone with a trillion dollars can't manage to employ someone smart enough to justify what they are doing, they can hardly be trusted to manage to employ someone smart enough to spend it wisely.
