What would you like to talk about (Sadie suggests auditing the Fed)

Sadie suggested to me that we talk about Ron Paul’s effort to audit the Fed.  I’m not clear on what such an audit would involve.  What do you folks think?

As always when Bookworm is away it is your intelligent, insightful, informative comments that make this blog worth reading.  So, as always, and as I should have already done, I’m asking for suggestions.  What would you folks like to talk about during the next two weeks?

    This is a diverse and interesting group, and although you have touched upon this to a degree in asking for favorite quotations, I think it would be interesting for each to comment on the most memorable quotes and/or advice we have personally heard or received during our lives; not something we have read.

    As far as talking about Ron following in his fathers foot steps and trying to audit the FED.  The FED would not let anyone get close to them.  Reagan thought it was a good idea to go after them, and after a few days of deep thought he changed his tune.  The all powerful Fed has better things to do then worry about people wanting to know what they do.  The control all the money period and you can do nothing about it.
    I like the idea about funny things for this isn’t very funny.

    What fun! I couldn’t contribute to the FED discussion– just don’t know enough and that said, think notomax is right.It won’t go anywhere right now. Caped’s idea is interesting, and I’d have something to say. One more specific thought along those lines would be quotes– written or spoken– from first generation businessman, of any era, although that may be a bit too specific. Another thought would be discussing what we think defines the American spirit. I’m thinking here of this quote from a piece Andrew McCarthy had up at PJMedia a few days ago.

    “One of the many great things about Paul Johnson’s magisterial A History of the American People is that he begins that history in the Sixteenth Century. There was an identifiable, culturally distinguishable American People long before there was a Revolutionary War, a Constitution, or a central government. The American People, by their industry and ingenuity, didn’t just build successful businesses… they built the most successful nation in history — and all, somehow, without HUD, Fannie, Freddie, the EPA, OSHA… ”
