    I used to ignore the ways & means that the Federal Reserve went about their day to day operation...until the WHITE HOUSE called the emergency meetings last August to come up with a 'PLAN' that would stop the 'WORST FINANCIAL DISASTER IN OUR HISTORY' from happening...and then GREENSPAN made the comment in 'January' {I believe} to the congressional inquiry "It was much worse then I even envisioned it to be, and in all honesty, I just didn't see this happening"...WTF, isn't that what you are in charge of??? {{just shaking my head in utter disbelief}}.

    And I'm ignoring the **MENTAL MIDGET'S POSTS** he's needs a diaper change ;)

    I never grow tired of hearing the GOP harping about a free market, but then not even entertain the idea of getting rid of the Federal Reserve.

    yes, its always smart at the very first sign of recovery...to change evrything to make sure you stall it...no reason to make sure its stable first...

    This coming from someone that no one respects even on a random political forum...

    Pot calling the kettle black, eh?

    I'd love to disband the Federal Reserve. They clearly helped push us into a recession, and they printed multiple trillions in new money which will cause inflation, and they have no clue how to undo what they did.

    I'm all for banning the federal reserve. But the fact is, that isn't going to happen. So the main reason you don't see us harping on getting rid of the federal reserve is because why harp on something that will not happen short of a revolution?

    Economies recover without these massive gov-spend programs. It did in 2000, 1992, 1983, and for dozens of recessions before. The last time we had massive spending programs is in the 1930s and caused the great depression.

    The reason we want to stop these programs is because we believe they will drag out this recession for 10 years if we let them.

    We don't have a recovery yet but I hope things continue to improve. The resilience of the American people is great.

    I concur with wanting to end the Fed. Also, fiat money should be done away with - damn sparkly purple ink on the $5's - good thing they didn't use anything too flamboyant on the $20's.

    Can't figure out a way to ask this question without sounding pretty condescending so might as well just out with it and then accept the flaming:

    Do y'all have much, if any, idea what a central bank actually does and why it exists?

    Personally, I'm not happy with The Fed either, but eliminating it altogether isn't going to solve the primary problem.

    There may or may not be anything evil with leaving interest rates low. It's the out and out deception
    of stating that the economy is recovering, that I have a problem with.

    There was no proof given behind that bold face assessment and lie!

    But if one also looks and notes how the government is now extending unemployment benefits for 20 weeks, extending the 1st time howeowners program, etc., we can
    deduce that those in charge don't expect a recovery!

    If they do, they need to find another job.

    From your link:

    From that, you conclude that there is no recovery.

    And I thought I was a pessimist and cynic.

    "Weather service predicts wonderful, sunny weather for the parade" means

    It's gonna snow that day.

    "Crime Rate Takes Dramatic Dip" means:

    Don't go out of your house unarmed, and be sure to go in a large group.

    Amazing, isn't it? Yet, how could anyone read the link in the OP and come to an economic doom and gloom conclusion?

    I suppose if you factor in the Democrat in the WhiteHouse principle:
    If there is a Democrat in the WH, and you're a rabidly partisan Republican, then any economic news is bad news.
