when the nominees are always white , or always men , or never brown , or
never black , it is a problem. So when the head of the Federal Reserve
is always JEWISH , it is a problem in that sense. Are there no other
candidates who are equally ( or better) qualified? Benjamin #1
Are there no non Jewish candidates ever that are qualified? Not that if
she is Jewish is a bad thing , but why is it always a Jewish person
that heads the Federal Reserve?
... you almost had a Mormon for President. What's the problem if if
she's Jewish, as long a she's competent ?
It is proved that all jews favor Israel over American interests when a
conflict of interests arises.. You did not know that?
Volker , Greenspan Bernanke and now Yellen. The list also includes
Arthur Burns and Meyer. The population of Jews in America is less than
one per cent . For those who are going to label me as an anti semite ,
rest assured that I will be complaining if no Jews ever served as
Federal Reserve chair persons. Democracy should be truly representative.
And if she is Jewish. So what ? Did this Joe ever pause to notice how
shallow he is ?
its been headed by a Jew and most of the regional governers are Jews .
Summers , the alternative is a Jew also . The mafia a few month back was
even posturing Stanely Fisher , at the time was the Governer of the
Israeli Central bank . Being qualified is not enough in this global
And to think there are actually REAL people who BELIEVE this
nonsense.... It stretches credibility....
