    I read quite a bit on that site, and while many of the facts are right, the VERY curious thing is the conclusion, the point of the site.

    That group wants to get rid of the Federal Reserve.  They are painting Ben Bernanke as Satan and President Obama as a puppet.  And they are totally ignoring sensible and more easily achieved ways of causing change:

    1.)  A Constitutional Amendment limiting the "speech" of corporations, also enacting other limits

    2.)  Institute a progressive income tax with a 90% tax rate on the top one percent.

    3.)  Raise the minimum wage

    4.)  Strengthen unions

    5.)  Break up the too-big-to-fail banks and other financial entities

    It's like it's a deliberate way to channel economic rage into useless activities.

      I'd never read that site before. On the issue of the Fed, I agree with Taibbi that Alan Greenspan is the biggest asshole in the universe for shoveling free money to the banks for all those years. Believe me, I'm no Paultard but I'd like to see some kind of an audit. I'm with you on all your 5 points, by the way.
