    Didn't know he was a banker before the pizza business.

    Terms for the position are 14 years so Cain would be around for quite awhile after Trump leaves office. There are seven seats and two currently are vacant. Looks like Trump has appointed quite a few.

    I kind of miss hearing about the 999 plan every other minute...

    and then hearing Michelle Bachman going full retard during the Repub debates saying, "if you invert the 999, you get 666, the devil is in the details."

    I don't think he was. I think people are confused about that because he was on the Kansas Fed, but that's kind of honorary thing for local business leaders.

    Theoretically, it's funny that Trump would put a known tight-money guy there when he's made it clear that he wants looser money, but in fact, Cain's real approach is hard money when a Democrat is in the WH and you want to slow the economy down (unemployment be damned) and loose money when a Republican is in the WH.

    I like Herman Cain. Not sure about his qualifications for the FRB.

    Hermain Cain is the man who ran a campaign for presidential nominee based around a 999 tax plan.

    He knows nothing about this subject. He should be laughed off any stage he’s on.

    You just said something insanely stupid, that means it's gonna happen. Bachmann for CDC head.
