Correction: Oops - I see the problem: I mistook post 12, of mine,for post 13, of mine, when I scrolled back earlier - post 13 was originally intended to merge with 12, and I overlooked the fact that they were separated. My bad - all references to "13" in my posts are references to "12". The Federal Reserve banks are private capital funded investor-run (via hired executives) corporations given a geographic monopoly of a particular profitable service in exchange for submitting to close government regulation in the public interest via a dedicated government oversight agency. Your turn: How are they not like a public utility? The only part that is an agency of the Federal Government is the Board of Governors - the Federal oversight agency. All the other parts - including all the banks themselves - are not. In every post on this thread (except 13, corrected now) - 6, 8, 12, 15, and now this one - I have stated that the Board of Governors is a Federal agency. (I also specified that fact in each of the several other threads this obsession of yours has occupied). Your claim that I changed to that in post 12 which you quoted (error 13) of this thread - this claim, by you, in post 14: is false - inaccurate, and deceptive, and slanderous, and completely gratuitous. Meanwhile, you have managed to derail two relevant and otherwise obvious trains of thought - that I agree with you, in the matter of the wingie feed posted by "sculptor", about the Fed not causing the Crash of 2007 (or 1929, if you check); and that the nature of the Fed, as a capitalistic and semi-independent entity managed by executives beholden to private capitalist interests, introduces a much different viewpoint on its behaviors than the one promoted by the wingie feed - and one complementary to your arguments. You could go with it. You have a comprehension problem, and a trolling habit. You may be stupid, you may be inherently dishonest in the common manner of authoritarians such as yourself, you may just have bad luck when you think, I don't know - but you should not reply to my posts until you have figured out what is going wrong that causes you to post like that.
