Federal Reserve minutes expose rift on when to end stimulus WASHINGTON — Despite maintaining aggressive stimulus measures last month to support the recovery and bring down high unemployment, Federal Reserve policymakers were divided on when they might end their hefty bond-buying programs, according to an account of the central bank’s meeting released Thursday.
The split suggests that the Fed could halt its asset purchases sooner than many investors are expecting, which could jolt financial markets.
Fed officials said last month that they would keep buying $85 billion of Treasury and mortgage-backed securities each month in an effort to hold down long-term interest rates and to spur investing, spending and hiring. Policymakers didn’t specify how long they would continue the purchases, even as they announced plans not to raise short-term interest rates until the unemployment rate fell below 6.5%, something that’s not expected to happen until mid-2015 at the earliest.

Schools ‘May Require Recitation Of The Lord’s Prayer’ Under Indiana Bill A state senator in Indiana introduced a bill on Thursday that would give public school districts the authority to mandate daily recitations of the Lord’s Prayer in public classrooms.
The bill, introduced on the first day of the new legislative session by Republican Senator Dennis Krause, outlines Kruse’s reasoning for requiring school prayer:
“In order that each student recognize the importance of spiritual development in establishing character and becoming a good citizen, the governing body of a school corporation or the equivalent authority of a charter school may require the recitation of the Lord’s Prayer at the beginning of each school day. The prayer may be recited by a teacher, a student, or the class of students.”
Picture this: Joe Biden reality show on TV
It’s official. The people just can’t get enough of gaffetastic Joe Biden.
A new “We the People” petition, created on Friday, urges the Obama Administration “to authorize the production of a recurring C-SPAN television program featuring the daily activities and interactions of the Vice President with elected officials, foreign dignitaries and everyday American families.”
The petition continues that a glimpse into the daily workings of Biden’s vice presidency would be beneficial for Americans to see the “lighthearted side of politics even in the midst of contentious and divisive national debates.”
This petition is every journalist’s dream, but a reality-show style look at the second most-respected office of our executive branch might not be a wise avenue for our already thin-skinned chief. But he need not to worry just yet. The petition needs 25,000 signatures to be considered, and as of Sunday afternoon only 1,300 had signed.
