    Aren't you Govt-connected? Surely you could verify these figures from your Administration computer in 5 minutes, as you probably know where to look. It would take me forever. Anyway, I believe my friend. Do you?

Now do the math, in the summer of 2008 we had 138 million taxpayers, now we have 10.2 less than that because of unemployment going through the roof, that equates to 123,924,000 million taxpayers.

    Okay, we divide the 16 Trillion by the number of taxpayers and we get ... $129,111.00 owed per taxpayer to the United States Government. I want to move the hell out of here! And now, Obama is pushing for nationalized Health Care which will cost an additional 1.5 Trillion. Look, there is NO stopping this guy, he is totally out of control!"

    Yesterday an American friend sent me this email. I have no idea if his figures are correct and so I ask a former US Govt auditor to look them over. If Aslan's tick appears, the next question concerns the 1.5 Trillion Health Care cost. Is Bernake almost in control of this impending Next Big Spend?

    Sometimes, DBo... like most all of us, I guess. Here's a couple of apt quotes:
    "It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them." Ralph Waldo Emerson

    "He was so learned that he could name a horse in nine languages; so ignorant that he bought a cow to ride on." Benjamin Franklin

    Would anyone stoop so low as to manipulate Shadroch's vote? Would I lie about having previously voted? Why would I do that? Are a few laughs worth such a betrayal? Well, yes, IMHO that would more than justify it.

    Bernanke is a Total Failure Unsuited for Role as Fed Chairman

    Politics / Central Banks
    Jun 29, 2009 - 04:15 AM
    By: Mike Shedlock


    Inquiring minds are reading Bernanke Flubs Tryout, Still Up for Leading Role by Caroline Baum.

    Most often I agree with Caroline, but not this time.

    After trashing (and rightfully so) Bernanke's last appearance before Congress, Caroline somehow arrives at the following conclusion.

    It would be hard to find someone more suited for the job of Fed chairman than Bernanke. His performance yesterday has nothing to do with his unique qualifications for the position. ... Unless President Barack Obama wants a solo pilot, he would do well to tap Bernanke for a second term.

    Let's take a look at the qualifications of which Baum speaks.

    Ten Qualifications

    1) Bernanke is either a liar or has a memory problem. I believe the former. Either way, there is a problem when a Fed chairman cannot recall a conversation with another Fed governor over something as critical as the Bank of America/Merrill Lynch merger. See Bernanke Suffers From Selective Memory Loss; Paulson Calls Bank of America "Turd in the Punchbowl" for my take.

    2) Bernanke claims to be a student of the great depression yet amazingly concludes the cause was misguided Fed policy after the stock market crash. This is nonsense. The cause of the great depression and the cause of the current depression (yes we are in a depression), is the massive expansion of credit and debt fostered by the Fed itself. Bernanke is no student of history, he is a dunce.

    He is no dunce, but he does know on which side his bread is buttered. I think Pinocchio would be more appropo--it gets to the essence of the man--puppet and liar. Did I say that?

    The Poll Brutus attracted a massive 9 votes and scored 2 - 7 overwhelmingly in favor of Liar! Liar! Your pants on fire! We need not be reminded that at least one of those 2 votes was cast for reasons other than the poll. That would make the count even more damning... The Pollmaker no doubt will forward these embarrassing conclusions to Liar Liar Pants On Fire.

    Actually, we don't know that one of the votes was cast for reasons other than the poll. I accept what was said, but I also imagine that some persons are so embarrassed by their own irrational biases in the face of all evidence to the contrary that they might seek cover for their vote.
