    ignore the Fed? I mean can you name a bigger, more powerful, more secretive corporation that has unbridled influence on us than the Federal Reserve? And yet, nothing.

    I don't understand the Fed.

    I am distrustful of corporations because they exist to make money - NOT to protect people, the environment, or any particular set of values.

    Is this true of the Fed? If so I distruct them as well.

    Well, there are two problems with your post.

    1. Liberals don't "hate" big corporations.

    2. Many liberals do not support the Fed, including myself.

    1. You are in denial here.

    2. Then maybe you guys should vocalize it more.

    1. I love it when Conservatives try to tell me what Liberals "really believe".

    2. Why?

    It's not hate to want someone to pay their fair share.
