And the war against the elderly and middle class continues.No,don't save,borrow and go into debt.Take out a home equity loan to pay your bills and buy food.We need some more"too big to fail" handouts to our friends the banks.Retirees?Go f*** yourselves.

Fed signals plan to keep key rate at record low

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Federal Reserve signaled Wednesday that it plans to keep a key interest rate at a record low because a broad range of U.S. economic measures remain subpar.

The Fed said it intends to keep its benchmark rate near zero as long as inflation remains under control, until it sees consistent gains in wage growth, long-term unemployment and other gauges of the job market.

What would be fun is Carter. Honestly, they're all going to have a lot of parallels, with one or two outliers of note. Each. Especially if you take the Hitler of, say, 1935, before he really got on a roll...
 
Yes, I do think it's a valid exercise. Pick any president and the similarities will be shocking to a lot of people. Obviously. It would be a good "there but for the grace..." lesson, that none of us should ever think that "That guy over there was Evil but we're too Good for that to happen here."

Sounds good, but I have been hearing more of the Obama = Hitler ignorant spewing as of late considering he has been CIC for almost 6 years now .  I am just assuming that you would be perfectly fine with an Obama; HItler comparison exercise as well.

There's possibly a teacher somewhere with such an idea - maybe even in D.C., or Kansas.  

 

Of this I have no doubt. I just hope that it is met with equal furor by both sides which of course I know it will not. Gawd I hate partisan hypocrisy.

I'm teaching my kids to read "news" articles with a questioning mind, so they'll be okay.

Maybe, just maybe, living in DC and all, a lot of kids say/hear that Bush = Hitler. Maybe, just maybe, the teacher had them do this exercise to learn how fucking wrong they were. Or weren't (I haven't done the homework yet).

I'm glad you'd like your kids taught by someone like that. If I had kids I'd want them to not be indoctrinated by left or right wing extremists so they could make up their own minds about that stuff.
