Digg Dialogg: Timothy Geithner
Here you can ask and vote on questions that will be asked to Geithner. On his part, I’m not sure this was the greatest idea. Digg claims that the most popular questions will be asked to him in an interview.
Here are the top 5, as of now:
Why has the federal reserve bank never been audited?
You failed to pay some of your federal taxes in 2001. And in 2002. And in 2003. And in 2004. Please explain.
What is your position on Ron Paul’s House Resolution 1207?
Last week you requested that Congress raise the $12.1 trillion statutory debt limit, saying that it could be breached as early as mid-October. This is in addition to the increase already approved in February this year to accommodate the added debt from the $787 Billion stimulus plan. How is this anything other than runaway government spending? What will it take for us to see US debt go the other direction?
Why is the government only supporting aging and increasingly obsolete car makers? You’ve given an extraordinary amount of money to GM, but the government has failed to encourage new, innovative, and cleaner forms of personal transportation such as produced by Tesla Motors. Why has TARP money not been invested in companies such as Tesla, and will the government support similar companies in the future?
Then, you have the less serious questions:
So what did the devil give you in return for your soul?
How do you sleep at night?
Why aren’t you in prison for tax evasion?
Do you ever feel the urge to come clean and expose the corrupt system of crony-capitalism that is stealing from regular people?
And then there is this question that will never be asked, but I would love to hear the answer:
What was discussed at the 2009 Bilderberg conference?
So I encourage you, if you have an account on http://www.digg.com, to vote on the best, toughest questions, and ask your own. You have until Thursday. 😉
