But alas, my friends seem to occupied with the Gov.Blagojevich nonsense. Sorry folks, he’s a politician. Does it excuse him? No, but it’s not something I really care about. “But, but, but the MSM, Republicans treated differently”. Blah blah blah. I don’t care. It always feels like this stuff is a made up distraction.
Now for the real news. It seems the Federal Reserve is refusing to disclose the recipients of Two Trillion of yours and mines tax dollars. Bloomberg news filed a freedom of information act, and of course the Federal Reserve believes it’s above the law…
Dec. 12 (Bloomberg) — The Federal Reserve refused a request by Bloomberg News to disclose the recipients of more than $2 trillion of emergency loans from U.S. taxpayers and the assets the central bank is accepting as collateral.
The Fed responded Dec. 8, saying it’s allowed to withhold internal memos as well as information about trade secrets and commercial information. The institution confirmed that a records search found 231 pages of documents pertaining to some of the requests
Now don’t you guys think this is a more worthy story than if some Politician was trying to sell a Senate seat? We are talking Two Trillion dollars that we have NO IDEA where it went, and you wanna carry on about some Governor who might have talked to Dictator President-Elect Obama?
Talk about corruption.
