    Yes but they specifically do that in an attempt to undermine his authority and belittle him.

    The difference is that it's specific rather than systematic.

    The Fed will finance a special purpose vehicle (SPV) for each acronym to conduct these operations. The Treasury, using the Exchange Stabilization Fund, will make an equity investment in each SPV and be in a “first loss” position. What does this mean? In essence, the Treasury, not the Fed, is buying all these securities and backstopping of loans; the Fed is acting as banker and providing financing. The Fed hired BlackRock Inc. to purchase these securities and handle the administration of the SPVs on behalf of the owner, the Treasury.

    In other words, the federal government is nationalizing large swaths of the financial markets. The Fed is providing the money to do it. BlackRock will be doing the trades.

    This scheme essentially merges the Fed and Treasury into one organization. So, meet your new Fed chairman, Donald J. Trump.

    Yeah, I actually need to agree with August here in general.

    Sometimes it's just that - a personal reaction to someone's else behaviour, not someone's gender/race/whatever.

    I've long come to the very obvious conclusion that there's only two kinds of human beings: those who are assholes and those who are not. And trust me - both kinds exist in every nation/gender/race/form/color/size/<you name it>.

    And I won't refrain from calling an asshole*) out, just because it might be poritically incorrect.

    *) And I'm obviously not referring to OSC - I very much like her.

    That general assesment is just as stupid as those you rightfully wanna call out with it.

    Just don't call them a little girl's asshole, or you might have to explain how you'd know to the cops.

    Oh of course, the problem is her behavior, not the sound of her voice and gestures she makes. Just like Trump, right?

    If you don't look at the words "little girl" and basically think that it's mainly about the girl bit, then can I have some of what you're smoking because it seems to put you completely out of touch with the reality of what your words mean.

    It's quite telling for the state of humanity, if such a statement is unironically true.

    It took a guy like that to say something. Even Sanders bent the knee to Pelosi and Schumer. A one time check of 1200 dollars (maybe) to sell out everyone's future.
