    Theres two words that come to mind about the whole fucking thing. WOODS and THROW They are NOT making things last longer. They are not releasing new models that fix existing problems. They are not trying to make things better. They are not interested in making things that break less. What they are trying to do is even worse. They are trying to design everything to become obsolete as soon as possible. They are trying to make things interconnected so they can sell data that is collected. They are trying to use everything as an advertising platform. They are trying to make things crappy and cheap so they break intentionally. They are trying to overcharge for cheaper and cheaper crap. They are not giving us useful features while overloading us with things we dont want. This is not the way the future is supposed to be. The future is supposed to be actually better than what we had before, not worse. If we ever do make a star ship, we will be lucky if it makes it as far as the moon without needing to be hauled back in for a major repair. Their machines make us dumber than we ever have been. They try to recommend we buy products, not because we need them, but purely so they can make money on selling us shit we dont need and cant afford that is actually worse than the previous model. These self driving cars are merely surveillance tools that will be shut off at the first sign of revolution against the Corporation State.

    Because, like weak, feckless, idiots, we walked away from and turned over the most most advanced society and technology the world has ever known, that took spending thousands of years and untold lives and fortunes for us to build, to be run now by people that barely have the skills to dress themselves each morning. And we know what doing that will lead to.

    In other words, it's all correct, but the Fed has declared the semantics to be incorrect so you can deny it. And thank you for playing.

    The point is, your bosses at the Fed create money out of electrons (devaluing our salaries and savings in the process), sell it to the government for bonds, charge interest on the bonds, charge exorbitant "costs" like five hundred million, hand out the other eighty billion to the banks which founded it to play with, get it back, and then you brag on them for finally giving that interest to the treasury. The point is, I am not impressed by the Fed's "largesse", and I don't think anyone else is either.

    That is not a fully accurate translation but taking it on face value, in current political developments there will be very little to dissect & analyze here if political discussion was limited to only confirmed facts relating to the parties involved (leader in chief vs media). Very large number of top political headlines are "unreliable" facts but those have big impact on masses nonetheless.

    Collateral like what? Packaged securities? Highly unlikely? So what if they make other investments? Who said "billions"? I didn't. And since when do all the banks only get a combined maximum of twenty million? Your lips are moving, but like a lawyer, politician or propagandist, you're managing to avoid saying anything that means anything.

    So? They transferred funds to a member bank. They got it back. And? Suppose the bank gets audited. It buys stock. It sells stock. So? So?

    Might not be fair comparison as both totals seem at least a day old but he's not getteing as much traction apparently as other Trump adversary in news this week: Trump’s adversaries steal the spotlight after wild 24 hours Stormy Daniels and Andrew McCabe have a bigger platform than ever before.

    But of course everyone wants to take the time to track what's happening to the money the Fed, as a bondholder, collects in interest on the national debt. And the Fed clearly has the transparency to make it possible.

    Well, there's nothing we'd rather do than take your word for it. I suppose bad mortgages packaged as "securities" and sold to investors never happened either? And, of course, guns never appear in gun-free zones.

    Next Sunday CBS interview might shed some more light on real story, unless Trump team is able to stop CBS from airing it. According to Judge Napolitano, Trump will not be able to stop CBS from airing it. CBS can run interview with Stormy Daniels: Judge Napolitano

    Well, there you go. They can transfer portions of eighty billion seven hundred million dollars to member banks. Member banks can buy stocks, reap capital gains, and transfer the principal back, all before the end of the quarter or the end of the year when the Fed then gives it to the Treasury. Eighty billion, seven hundred million FRNs, give or take, is a nice chunk of capital to play with. Which was my point, a point which still stands after a page of dissembling on your part.

    The Fed basement is full of gold. You were also talking about the Fed receiving interest on bonds which it--eventually--shells out to the Treasury. You know money is an asset. You don't need to make an ass of yourself by asking me to define 'assets', Zippy. If you don't want to answer the question, run and hide. You've done it before.

    Assets, Zippy. I said what I meant and mean what I say. You want to limit the terms of the discussion to something you can spin to cover the Fed's big ass. But I said assets. Period.

    Yesterday, 06:53 PM No doubt you'll dispute the verb "owned". Think you can dispute the verb "controlled"? Think anyone will be impressed by the difference? As for whether Fed stock can be sold, or whether you put the word stock in quotation marks, stocks denote ownership (usually temporarily) and if anyone can play with funds on hand, it's the owners.

    The bondholders still get the interest. Whether the Fed, which is only one bondholder, takes $500,000,000 as "expenses", then only plays with the money for a while (give me $80,200,000,000 for a couple of months and I'll make enough on the stock market to be more than just set for life) and gives it back, is irrelevant.

Based on the idea of natural rights, government secures those rights to the individual by strictly negative intervention, making justice costless and easy of access; and beyond that it does not go. The State, on the other hand, both in its genesis and by its primary intention, is purely anti-social. It is not based on the idea of natural rights, but on the idea that the individual has no rights except those that the State may provisionally grant him. It has always made justice costly and difficult of access, and has invariably held itself above justice and common morality whenever it could advantage itself by so doing.
--Albert J. Nock
