**The Federal Reserve Plans To Identify Key Bloggers And Monitor Billions Of Conversations About The Fed On Facebook, Twitter, Forums And Blogs**
The Federal Reserve wants to know what you are saying about it. In fact, the Federal Reserve has announced plans to identify "key bloggers" and to monitor "billions of conversations" about the Fed on Facebook, Twitter, forums and blogs. This is yet another sign that the alternative media is having a dramatic impact. As first reported on Zero Hedge, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York has issued a "Request for Proposal" to suppliers who may be interested in participating in the development of a "Sentiment Analysis And Social Media Monitoring Solution". In other words, the Federal Reserve wants to develop a highly sophisticated system that will gather everything that you and I say about the Federal Reserve on the Internet and that will analyze what our feelings about the Fed are. Obviously, any "positive" feelings about the Fed would not be a problem. What they really want to do is to gather information on everyone that views the Federal Reserve negatively. It is unclear how they plan to use this information once they have it, but considering how many alternative media sources have been shut down lately, this is obviously a very troubling sign.
You can read this "Request for Proposal" right here. Posted below are some of the key quotes from the document (in bold) with some of my own commentary in between the quotes....

They'll had that info over to Northcom/Department of Homeland Security. Does any one really believe the massive security apparatus built up over the last ten years was meant for scary looking Muslims?
How should FReepers react to this positive development, toddsterpatriot?
We’ve got murderous Mexican cartels monitoring social media and now The Federal Reserve.
Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right.....
I read zerohedge every day, and sometimes WilliamBanzai7 there posts some of my things in the comments. It is a really super good website and they are just giving the Fed and the Gov’t a constant bad time. Plus, WB7’s artwork is just hilarious.
You could build a giant toilet, big enough to hold 1/4 of the Federal Reserve employees at the same time. Then we hold a raffle for the four tickets to pick who gets to do the flushes. The proceeds could go to repair the damage they have done. Is that a great conversation about the FED or what?
This is getting to look like Bourne ultimatum, where the gov can shoot you for saying the wrong thing.
“Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right.....”
And stealers have a hold of the wheel...

Do all these lists out there mean someone is watching everyone on these lists?
i wonder what it feels like to be zotted by the fed.
I am speechless.
And all of those on the “List” probably equals about 80% of the population
Show me where this is authorized under our Limited Government constitution!
I thought it was...
He who controls the guns, controls the gold? :)
Ron Paul is looking better and better as a vote that will poke the Republicrats and Demicans in the eye.
“Gee the party of “let it all hang out” and everyone should have “free speech” is really in full force trying to silence it’s critics...Attachwatch and now this..... “
Do you think the Fed is controlled by the Democrats?
Time to apply RICO laws on the Fed ! A very corrupt organization !
