    Bernanke should be arrested and put on trial for the scam he helped pull on the American people and our economy. This guys actions makes Rupert Murdoch and his scam look like childs play. He is a huge contributor to our current economic mess on a global scale.

    Watch the movie, Inside Job. Its crazy what the FED and investment banks have stolen and gotten away with. Criminal!

    LIAR! He's a Constitutionally-studied law professor! You're just blowing hate smoke all over this blog! If you mean to say 'NEW WORLD ORDER', that is going what the world is coming to no matter who is the President! That is GOING to happen, Mr! OBAMA and nobody can change that fact! Even if the TRUE MESSIAH returned tomorrow, no change of that fact! Oh, you'll really get your 'NEW WORLD ORDER' OK? I hope and pray HE does come back soon to gather his own soon!
