    More partisan hackery. Here is why people seriously question your intelligence. Under your logic.... The democrats "threatened the private sector with punitive taxes, an over-reaching health care bill, card check and cap-n-tax." And yet, as the chart indicates... the worlds economies where pouring money into financing it? At record low yields.

    Now you want to talk about a serious case of either ignorance or denial.... Wow

    Which mortgage companies own half the bad mortgages in the country and who was overseeing them? Give you a hint: they weren't Republicans.

    Who has been undermining consumer confidence for the past several years and is still doing it? Again, they're not Republicans.

    So you edit your post, then have the nerve not only to tell me to slow down, but suggest I have no right to question the fed, amazing!

    Do you work for the fed, you would make a wonderful PR guy/gal.....well, if only to the ignorant masses.

    So again, back up your absurd suggestion that we should be 'kissing the ground this man walks on". I am still confused, as I am sure many others are, as to why we should be applauding this man?

    Can you address my post? Why would the world economies dump money into treasury debt if they truly felt frightened by future US spending? Why do they continue to do so (although this week china has sat out possibly due to early yields being seasonally low) buy our debt at cheap prices?

    I did address your post. You claimed I engaged in partisan hackery, along with a couple personal attacks and I showed you how I wasn't engaging in partisan hackery, by simply stating the facts.

    BTW, de-regulation isn't what caused the reession.

    I told you... Dow 4000 and going lower. If you do not agree, what is the technical analysis you are using as evidence of the markets trajectory?
