Viewed the ticker EOD 2/4 that was (or wasn’t) depending upon on one’s perspective / Anywhoo, good luck -w- your endeavour. |
Concerning Ben Bernanke, I have to disagree -w- your assertion that he thinks he’s a "God". Watching the man early-on its’ easy to see that he was an individual who felt the gravity of the situation he, (beyond this, the economy) is faced with. Only recent does it seem like he’s coming through with any degree of confidence to an American (or further) a global audience. Maybe he's just slipping more comfortably into the roll…Maybe a prescription of valiums? Either which. . .
I agree with everything else, but I have a question for you. . .When you refer to him as playing -w- TAF and aside from, that we *don’t know* just how bad things are on the larger institutional balance sheets (true), do you think there’s a potential of a 'domino effect' sweeping through the institutions once it is known? Does he suspect and fear the possibility? One must consider this -w- recent actions / redacted info. Pika-steph referred to here: http://www.tickerforum.org/cgi-ticker/ak.... and also the Jan. publication from:
http://www.fsa.gov.uk/pubs/cp/JointCP_ba.... (Page 11, Chapter 1, Parts 33-34) which, one may interpret as a shadowy image to our own actions.
(Or) converse, do you think its’ just a case of 'one hand washing the other?' as to the lack of proper action? If the latter true, this would imply a ‘good ole’ boy network’ though is possible to exist, I have difficulty believing it to be of that scale. . .To compare, it would be like the 9/11 truthers’ argument as to the ways [that] was pulled off
Reason I ask is because numerous times in the past you have stated that you believed (and I have no reason to doubt, makes sense as its’ plausible) "The FED has info. Before J6P does though it’s illegal", given that, one must assume he knows scads more about what's going on than we. Could the lack of confidence he projects at times be otherwise interpreted as fear?
Third option: Could it be that he perceives (like the FSA) a collapse could occur driven by pure psych? The reason for the above-mentioned subterfuge when viewed as a 'whole'?
To close, I agree with you and I don’t think for a moment that I believe this to be TEOTWAWKI. Like you, I see America as being resilient and strong enough to survive this mess.
Thanks for all your great work and the amount of effort you put into the Forum and the Ticker. I've learned MUCH from you as well as the input from various members.
