Re: Ethics Committee Recommends Rangel be Censured by House ...

Amazing stuff ashvinp. It is announced that creating inflation is part of Economic Policy now. Incompetent corrupt individuals are all over the place running the country & they want us to have faith in the currency LOL....Faith is about all that is holding this country together & that seems to be going down hill faster & faster these days. I can hear helicopter Ben & the boys blaming all of us for the failure since it was us that lost faith in this ongoing Ben announces what did  we all expect we should have not questioned his money printing ways. We all should have been smart enough to have known all good Ponzi schemes come to an end once you don't blindly follow.
