    So if the talking point we were all raised on from birth is a big, fat lie, by your own admission as a semi-official Fed spokesman, then why are we putting up with having our savings and our wages devalued every single day again? I'm unclear on the concept. Is it just so the world's biggest banks can make money the old fashioned way--by printing it? Is it just so the allegedly republic form of federal government can get away with doing things we don't care to bleed tax dollars for--like taking down every nation (stable or not) which does not have a related central bank? How is that robber baronetcy which is the Federal Reserve in our best interests again? The Federal Reserve was established in 1913, while the Great Depression kicked off in 1929. Yet here you are saying--not implying, but saying--that it happened on a pure gold standard. Need a nose job yet? I can loan you a woodpecker...

    'Panics' is a word that was always used, at the time, to describe stock market crashes. Panic may have been a motivating factor behind bank failures, but runs on banks were called runs on banks, and market corrections were called Panics--capitalized--such as the 'Panic if 1907'. For you to sit there and pretend the Fed was created to curb all panic is tantamount to saying that its purpose is to prevent theater fires and eliminate ghost stories. And the FDIC was created twenty years after the Fed. So, if the Fed did a single thing to prevent bank failures, why was the FDIC ever created? Total propaganda fail, Fedtroll.

    Not a very useful skill, but she has balls, so to say. I'm not particularly attracted to a girl who bites heads of of things. However, I do like the attitude;- Because other people don't do something, doesn't mean you shouldn't either? That kind of character is definitely attractive in my book.

    Excuse me while I endeavor to not consider the source. You've seen me give as good as I was given in the service of libertarianism and anti-establishment thought. Just review my post history and see if you can figure it out. Here's a hint: Semi-undercover servants of the status quo only ban tellers of truth during election seasons. They spend the time after the fact trying to reestablish their cover--and their traffic.

    Does the name cajuncocoa ring a bell? Oh, if you ask, you'll be given a lot of extraneous excuses for her ban. But everything she did was done to protest the partisan brainlessness which was that election. It's funny you should ask me that. I was banned for doing the same. And then we could start naming members who used to come here to get a respite from partisanship and attendant conventional thinking and brainless, meaningless drama, and don't come here any more. You can start that list off with Lucille. How many women still post here regularly? Three? He's just trying to change the subject because I pointed out the fact that Federal Reserve currency devaluation is the primary reason people work sixty hours a week, yet don't make enough to live on any more. Working for the Fed as he does, he's liable to get a raise if he can get us to blame it on Wal Mart. If he can get us talking about something--anything--besides the Fed, he's doing his job.

    Oh, please. What kind of hyperpartisan crap is this? Dubya danced and dodged shoes and butchered the English language and accused the queen of being 230 years old. And Trump is even worse. Obama is far and away the most dignified of the bunch. Of course, Michelle Obama more than made up for it by being the biggest brat to wear the title 'First Lady' since Eleanor Roosevelt. As a package deal, the Obamas are a wash. Any woman who will have Air Force One buzz and terrorize Manhattan so her relatives can take snapshots of the island and use them as 'bling' is beyond the pale. I suppose Reagan conducted himself in a sufficiently dignified manner when he wasn't talking about fighter satellites with lasers using eighties technology with a straight face, or looking like a deer in the headlights when confronted about Iran-Contra, but it's still hard to think 'dignity' about a senile guy with a turkey waddle down to his necktie and all that brown shoe polish in his hair. And H.W. wasn't so bad when he wasn't puking in the Japanese prime minister's lap. But Obama himself was considerably less embarrassing than any Republican president since Ike.

    So, you take a sniff, mistake an anti-Fed argument for a minimum wage argument, and jump off board? Do you think victims of inflation and the systematic destruction of manufacturing jobs should be stripped of the right to vote, but corporations should get to vote even though they are things, not people? You say government is the problem, not the corporations, but I don't see you acknowledging who or what it is that is paying the lobbyists to make the particular bribes they make. My what a fine job of dividing and conquering has been done to us! Trump fires up his Twit account and convinces the world that American Republicans in particular, and all white males in general, are a bunch of bullies. A bunch of genuine California fruits and nuts shut down one backwater joke of a state college and convinces the world that all Democrats are a bunch of bullies. There are a whole world of reasonable people in between, but the mainstream propaganda mafia refuses to point their cameras that direction, so everyone decides they don't exist. Or rather, everyone knows reasonable people exist, but we're so insular and fed such ridiculous images, that people get the mistaken impression that all the reasonable people decide all the other reasonable people are on 'their side of the damned aisle'. And then come the litmus tests. 'What you say smells like an argument for minimum wage so I stopped listening to you.' Well so the fuck what if it smells that way? Should we all stick our noses in the air and run away if someone comes along who thinks there are worse band-aids than minimum wage laws? No wonder this site's traffic is in the toilet and this movement got itself stuck in the mud! This site was literally banning people for pointing out that Trump was a totalitarian, a Democrat in drag, and an orange clown and third grade bully who was about as likely to keep more than two percent of his campaign promises as Carrier was to manufacture 100% of its air conditioners in the U.S. Literally banning people over telling the truth. This movement was founded on as many Democrats as Republicans. This movement was not founded on party lines. Libertarianism has always, always found as much virtue in the personal liberties the Democrats used to pay lip service to as in the economic liberties the Republicans used to pay lip service to. And the libertarian movement has always drawn disaffected people from both sides of the artificial construct called 'The Aisle'. It cannot thrive unless it draws from both sides of 'The Aisle'. It cannot survive without people from both sides of 'The Aisle'. And that's why the Powers that Be have redoubled their efforts to divide us along party lines. They have used everything they can think of to do it. They pushed a Republican candidate who looks, talks, acts and tweets like a third grade playground bully. They gave a whole lot of air time to a socialist clown in their abortive attempt to make Clinton look reasonable. With all the reasonable, well spoken conservatives available to them, they put Duck Dynasty on cable TV. They publicize 'woke people' spewing racism and sexism and claiming they are incapable of spewing racism and sexism. And how do we respond? Do we redouble our efforts to reach out to the people the mainstream propaganda mafia are trying to demonize? Do we use a desire for a higher minimum wage as a starting point to educate people on how the Fed not only makes popping bubbles more destructive than ever before, but make the band-aid of minimum wage laws seem necessary? Do we turn that into a movement to end the Fed? Do we demonstrate that we are as reasonable as the Republicans are dogmatic and silly? Do we short circuit the divide and conquer tactics by reaching out? Do we concentrate on making the case that the only compassionate course is creating opportunity?

    Oh, there are a few with preexisting conditions who were unable to get anything before, and can under the ACA. They are very few in number, but they go to all the town halls and get all the mainstream media coverage in the world. Saying anyone--anyone--else is absolutely wedded to the stuff is pure propaganda. Millions know full well they got better coverage for less a few years ago, and they'd go back in a heartbeat. Congress told us when it passed, we passed it and now you're stuck with it. And they meant it, and the media will never admit of any other possibility. Ever. But the percentage of the population who wouldn't gladly go back tomorrow is small. They may be vocal. But the percentage is tiny. So save your propaganda for someone who doesn't know better.

    Unity is not a hard concept. Arguing over its meaning just distracts from the important point being made in the thread. The divide and conquer game is working all too well, and government is playing a prime role in it. And I don't know hat a 'bur' is, but no, I have no burrs in my socks today.

    This concept was once understood. Back during the Coolidge days, what they used to say was, 'A rising tide floats all boats.' But clearly most of the wealth and control has been concentrated in few enough hands that they no longer need concern themselves with currency velocity or wide customer bases. Clearly they're more concerned with getting themselves nice little things like monopolies on printing all the world's money. Yeah? You think the government needs to do this thing? How about we stop deliberately destroying the economy with wealth-sapping wars and opportunity-destroying regulations, stop devaluing the currency so wages won't be left behind by inflation, and let people have the satisfaction of earning their living wage?

    It's funny watching the media spin this. One minute they're talking about how some of the Republican senators who aren't on board think the plan isn't enough, while others are conservative enough to think it isn't close enough to a straight repeal of the boondoggle. Then they show the poll numbers and laugh at the fact that most Republicans disapprove of what the Republican members of the Congress are doing. But what they never, ever, ever say is, of course Republican voters don't approve, they want it gone.

    Go get a job with the propagandists, and use that Zippy Brand Double-Talk(TM) for some actual profit. The federal government divides us in order to conquer us, and they're working hand in hand with the media, under the command of the sponsors who own both. Clearly one doesn't have to read very many of Zippy's 'here's a poll showing why we hate each other' posts to realize that, if the federal government had less resources to throw at propaganda, and had its grubby fingers in less pies overall, it would necessarily do less to pit us at each other's throats.

    Where's the study that tells us how many brick and mortars Amazon has destroyed? You know they have, right? What's that you say? Don't have one of those? They helped destroy the local retailers which this study said were destroyed only by Wally World? In fact, there's no way to tell how much one corporation contributed to the phenomenon, and how much the other one did? Look, if you don't have information that bears on the whole topic of the thread, why do you insist on tossing something in on one side of the scales anyway? Are you moonlighting from your Fed shilling to shill for Amazon as well? Or do you just figure dumping on Wally World makes you look proggy and cool?
