Congratulations Ben!

My sincerest congratulations go out to Banana Ben Bernanke, who as of today, has managed to surpass his first trillion dollars in US Treasury holdings!  This makes the Fed easily the largest holder of US Treasuries in the world.  Combined with their holdings in mortgage backed securities and other assorted garbage, the Fed has over $2.5 trillion on the balance sheet.

At his current pace, by this time next year, Ben will have managed to surpass $4 trillion.  By then, gas should be well over $5/gallon and I'm sure the serial liar will still claim that there's no inflation and that he's not monetizing the national debt.  Merry Christmas, ya fucking bastard.
