Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) tells you how you became part-owner of the toxic Red Roof Inn—but not really the owner at all, just the one covering the liabilities with your homes (10:58):
And LOL@Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) for wondering what this had to do with financial reform. The Dummycrats really are fucking dense. Rep. Ron Paul spoke on the ‘currency crisis’ from creating monopoly money out of thin air (5:38):
Dr. Paul and Mr. Grayson passed a bill through the House to audit the Federal Reserve, but the version that went through the Senate—sponsored by Sen. Bernie Sanders—was gutted.
“Bernie Sanders has sold out and sided with Chris Dodd to gut ‘Audit the Fed’ in the Senate,” Dr. Paul responded on his Facebook page. “His ‘compromise’ is what the Adminstration and banking interests want: they’ll allow the TARP [Troubled Asset Relief Program] and TALF [Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility] to be audited, but no transparency of the FOMC [Federal open Market Committee], discount window operations or agreement with foreign central banks.” He added in a statement on YouTube (2:32):
Mr. Sanders has been “trading calls, he said, with Rahm Emanuel, the White House chief of staff”, Ryan Grim reported at The Huffington Post earlier this week. Documents leaked to the HuffPo showed the Fed was “privately lobbying against a bipartisan Senate amendment that would open the central bank to an audit by the Government Accountability Office”.
The quote of day was from Electronic Intifada co-founder Ali Abunimah, who—regarding today’s election in the U.K.—said: “The myth of liberal democracy is that you can ‘throw the bums out’. All you can do is spin the carousel.”
