Here are a few choice quotes from Ben Bernanke’s op-ed piece with my replies:

Ben Bernanke:”These measures are very much out of step with the global consensus on the appropriate role of central banks, and they would seriously impair the prospects for economic and financial stability in the United States.”

Jet Lacey:”Fuck you Ben.  The global consensus?  Do you mean the consensus of the banking and corporate oligarchs that plan to create a worldwide scientific dictatorship based on eugenics? That’s exactly why we need such a measure in the first place; to lop off the head of the beast that’s devouring us.”

Ben Bernanke:”The Fed played a major part in arresting the crisis, and we should be seeking to preserve, not degrade, the institution's ability to foster financial stability and to promote economic recovery without inflation.”

Jet Lacey:”Fuck you Ben.  The Fed also played a major role in creating the crisis in order to bring about the New World Order’s “global consensus.”  You know, there are many of us who are catching on to your ‘problem-reaction-solution’ shenanigans and it just doesn’t work any longer.  You boys have cried wolf way too many times already.”

Ben Bernanke:”The proposed measures are…the product of public anger over the financial crisis…particularly the rescues of some individual financial firms….as distasteful and unfair as some undoubtedly were -- were unfortunately necessary to prevent a global economic catastrophe that could have rivaled the Great Depression.”

Jet Lacey:”Fuck You Ben.  Yyou just described the reaction portion of this entire situation.  And did I mention, fuck you?”    

Ben Bernanke:”we strongly support measures -- including the development of a special bankruptcy regime for financial firms…while ensuring that the costs of failure are borne by owners, managers, creditors and the financial services industry, not by taxpayers.” (emphasis mine)

Jet Lacey:”Again, fuck you Ben.  Surprise, surprise, surprise!  Here comes the solution portion where they set themselves up as the ‘Too-Big-To-Fail’ supranational regulator of the entire economy of the United States in association with the BIS, the IMF, the World Bank and a few other Central Banks and ‘Voila!’ you’ve got yourself a brand-spanking new New World Order.”

(Isn’t it funny when you click on the links which direct you to the "About" section of all these banks that their charter/mission statements are always to help avoid crisis, help developing nations, end hunger and starvation, etc.?”  Since when do banks set themselves up to help anyone other than themselves?)
