GreenspanGate - Dark Forces Align

Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan has sworn allegiance to the Dark Master. Here's the proof!!!

greenspan_cheney.jpg


The denizens of Daily Kos have listened carefully to the words of their patron saint, Tom Daschle Jr (Harry Reid), and have declared moonbat jihad on an octogenarian, a reporter, and a libertarian author who has been dead for more than 20 years.

"We should hunt down anything Greenspan has ever written, said or done that reflects poorly on him.

...And for those of you who want to really get down & dirty in the trenches, we can turn this into a one-degree-of-separation venture. That is, if you can find similar material for anyone who is closely linked to Greenspan, that's fair game, too. Good examples would be Greenie's idol, the nutbag "objectivist" Ayn Rand, and Andrea Mitchell, his NBC reporter wife."

Hey this is fun!

Ray Midge:

Continuing with the Nazi thing from previous post, I would point out for some of the more eagle-eyed Kossacks that this shot was obviously taken in some sort of Bavarian themed lodge and Andrea Mitchell's blouse looks exactly like something Eva Braun would have worn.

Not saying these, in themselves, prove Greenspan's a Nazi, just very interesting. That's all.

I'm reminded by my friends at DU that the correct phrase is "jackbooted thugs" not "black booted thugs"

Even so, jackboots are being phased out for Birkenstock Piedmont stompers which are uniquely designed for maximum comfort. (Also made in Germany so you know they have to be authentic.)

Made in Germany, named after a region in Italy. The links to fascism are endless!

All joking aside, is anybody else really fucking sick of the "sic em!" mentality emanating from the port side of the 'sphere? I think these kids came away from Rathergate having learned entirely the wrong lesson.

Every Socialist, collectivist, Fascist and Communists in the world that can read hates Ayn Rand. She was the champiion o the Bill of Rights. If you do not understand read ATLAS SHRUGED or FOUNTAINHEAD , I read both at the base library in Pendleton 40 years ago. If you read them and do not support the Bill of Rights then you will join the ACLU to destroy the Bill of rights, there is really no fence to sit on.

Because under Clinton, Hackspan was against budget deficits, trade deficits and the privatization of Social Security.

This makes no sense. Ayn Rand was a deluded worshipper of the High Church of the Free Market while the ACLU defends the Bill of Rights.

Steve, we're venturing a bit off track but this is an important debate. I don't believe facts back your entire assertion.

Greenspan is still against budget and trade deficits as far as I know. He was/is NOT against privatization of SS.

Review my earlier post if you haven't already:
AnonymousDrivel at March 6, 2005 05:01 AM

If you just want the pertinent links, here they are again. It's very important that one reads all three reports and testimony in their entirety and not remove context. Is it a bit dry? At times - but Greenspan's sentiment could not be more clearly expressed. Skip the spin and go to the sources. Notice that these are overviews of the Fed's positions during the Clinton, not Bush, administration. I'd say Greenspan is about as explicit in his opinion on SS and its remedies as he is going to be. One would be mistaken to interpret any of his testimony as a backtracking to his position that SS was and is on a track to collapse though he may appear nebulous and reserved on how best to fix a broken model.

Moonbats, please resume the ongoing smear campaign. Steve, this does not mean you for your assertion was not smear. I think it was an erroneous statement, but it was not smear - hence legitimate critique.
