The Chair of the Federal Reserve is fighting Congress on oversight…..

Ben Bernanke, is firing back at members of Congress that want to sponsor a bill to put congressional oversight of the agency that is this countries central bank. The Fed also sets policy and rates for the this country, and its banking system……It has been independent, and in the background, until financial problem come up……In my opinion, congress has  turned to its operation as a scapegoat for the mistakes made by the past White House……The bill put forth to the members of the House has 313 sponsors…which I think has that strong backing because, the members of the House know there is NO CHANCE that the Senate would vote to accept a similar bill…….

A little something on balanced budget history (and the GOP) from a fellow blogger @ Politics1…..

Here’s the post, which I think is good short history lession on balanced budgets and the GOP……

Well, to jump in a bit to something that was discussed earlier? The budget was balanced during Clinton because of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1994, a bill that every single Republican voted against, and that passed right before the Dems were wiped out in the Mid-Terms. This was a time when the GOP was stuck on the Reaganomics idea that “Deficits don’t matter”. as Dick Cheney said “Reagan proved”. The idea that W Bush was more of a penny pincher than any Democrat would have been is also bunk, because a Democrat wouldn’t have invaded Iraq–and by process make Afghanistan more expensive because of the limited approach taken towards it has strung it out towards a status quo that essentially existed in 2001. It was also Bush who started to bailout the banks and nation just as he was leaving office, a policy Obama merely continued. Every economist on earth (from the left and right) supported a stimulus package. I have no idea what Obams is spending that isn’t essential and geared towards future American infrastructure. The US is falling apart at the seems, with two wars, and a collapses workforce that was only artifiicial and bubble contingent in many ways anyway. The GOP has never ever shown fiscal retstrain, nor pursued limited government, and has often denied the impact of deficits, and sold the US to China as eagerly as could be imagined. It was the GOP, with a 90’s assist from Clinton, who pushed for a globalized economy and workforce that has hitched US employment rates to international forced we can’t control, all at the cost of creating American brands and making the wealthiest class even wealthier. The Republicans haven’t done shit, in short. The only meaningful deifict attention came from Clinton and the Dems in 1994, something the GOP stood completely against–because at the time they denied that defiicts mattered.

Tiger Woods had a fight with his wife the other night over another woman…..

The golfer may have hit a hydrant coming out of his driveway…..But it seems Tiger Woods got his face scratches from his wifenot the car…..

Things may have gone like this……it’s 2:30 in the morning…..Woods, and his wife Elin Nordegren are having a not so pleasant conversation about reports of him spending time with this woman, Rachel Uchitel in New York…..his wife angry and hurt lashes out at her husband, who does not strike back, but gets the car keys and leaves the house…only to be so out of whack that he drives into a hydrant that he knows is at the end the driveway…the wife may have in fact been chasing him with golf club when she heard him leave the house and smashed the window before he hit the hydrant ….how he got of the car only both of them can tell…..that’s my guess…(just a guess, okay, I’m home in New York people )

Anyway… it’s the day of the internet people, and it seems like the one of the world best golfers has some explaining to do………

To his wife…and the public…who adore him…but now know he’s a man…and is human…….
