    This article brings to mind what a mistake it was to return Orrin Hatch to the Senate. His recent vote in favor of Mr. Fisher to be appointed Vice-chairman of Federal Reserve is clearly a vote in support of continuing the recent Federal Reserve Policies of Bernanke and Yellen. These low interest rate policies rob American savers of hundreds of billions of dollars of interest every year while subsidizing the leveraged traders of Wall Street and hedge funds. Clearly Senator Hatch is opposed to free markets as he supports the Fed's unprecedented financial market manipulations of the last 7 years as they have created unsustainable bubbles in the mortgage bond and stock markets and caused asset inflation around the world. As these bubbles burst and crash the American and world economies again we can thank Senator Hatch for his support of these corrupt and self-serving Federal Reserve policies.

    Good comments. The same can be said of any organization, and that includes religious,, political ,corporate and social ones.

    Our society, and our understanding of human nature has changed. We know differently about woman, minorities and sexual orientation. Yet many of our social and religious entities live in the 19th century. Like the government and industry which has changed to some extent, these entities are ossified and their leaders ought to be responsive to change. Unfortunately for us all, these same leaders are not selected by the many, but usually by the few.
