    I get the feeling this thread is some sort of attempted diversion from reality....a semi-clever ploy to deflect the actual political philosophy of Progressives and the Left in general.

    Probably so, but that is what the business model for right wing radio demands. Make a decreasing demographic increasingly angry with political opposition positions on matters of importance by also making them afraid using any and all examples one can find. That is ratings, inflicting concern and anger.

    Never really thought of those issues again until I was in college.

    Impossible. Your profile says you live in the "deep south". Everyone knows that we ain't nothing but ignorant rednecks.

    That was likely just the individual in question sounding loony

    He was right in regards to the FED's ability to control the ebb and full of deflation/inflation. They can and do.

    Whether they are run by outside forces...you decide.

    I guess some conservatives do, thus its unfathomable to them that anyone else might not.
