Today's Fed leak should come as no surprise following yesterday's big sell-off, writes Josh Brown, especially as the leading GOP contender has made clear his displeasure with Bernanke. In addition to stocks, crude oil and gold got their tails in the air following the report. "The Fed is not playing games ... they want this market rolling higher. Fight it at your own peril."

    And with Bernanke future generations will forever be saddled with depression like conditions and a debt that can never be repaid.

    Not to mention the liberty lost and continued corruption that comes from a debt ridden country.

    With Bernanke we are going to suffer runaway inflation that will set us back decades. I'd rather have one recession to clean the system out than have runaway inflation.

    I had a reply to the first comment which requested a dislike button. It has been deleted. SA seems to censor posts...

    It does some that one is indeed fighting the fed, unfortunate since I'd love another shot at 2008 prices... just one more bernank and I'll shut up I swear!

     

    I think the "correction" would've been worse, far worse, but we would've come out of it sooner rather than this slow sisyphus like push upward but I also think that we are priming the pump for massive inflation a couple of years from now.
