  1. Thanks for this post. Interesting group composition. Mr. D. forgot a couple of questions/talking points:

    --What happens when the masses figure out QE3 is really another bailout(this time vaporware mortgage securitization) and wealth transfer to 'our' banks, not about level of employment(as sold by Mr. B)?

    --What happens when the masses figure out there really is no gold in the NY Fed basement(or Ft. Knox, or West Point)?

    --Does anyone know of a top security firm to protect us when the masses come for us?

    The list could go on . . .
