Some of us have only hung out in the Econ forum since RP retired. For us who have that distinction, The Zipster does not provide "the other side". Firstly, we have the MSM for that and we are all too painfully aware of their side for their prolific delivery from every weeping hole of a media outlet. We can't even go to a dentist appointment anymore without seeing "the other side" of US econ "news" on a TV screen in the waiting room and above our heads while in the dentist's chair.
Zip googles MSM and FED headlines, charts and data and posts it here as the truth against everything all others post. He's a FED cheerleader. He wants members here to swallow the Yellen report, hook, line and sinker, he "proves" the FED owns no gold, he insists the member banks have a reserve requirement, he insists that the FED has no owners but that all thousands of member banks own the FED, he defends the profession of the FED being that of the benevolent neutral crusader for truth, justice and the American way, etc., etc., ad nauseum.
Since RP has retired, his single most important agenda for 3 decades+, AUDIT, THEN END THE FED, to many of us, is his legacy and still the only important first step to prosperity.
Constantly blocking that effort with FED propaganda is just annoying. Zippy has no relevance either way, he's simply annoying in his consistency as a shill for the establishment.
The fact that his demeanor, as it may read to anyone, in his delivery of bovine excrement should have any relevance at all goes to how far America has devolved from freedom to enforcing hurt little girl's insistence on a speech outline enforcement.
