15. When you put money in the bank you get paper
And what's their problem with "paper"? A thousand dollar bill is paper, the check I write, my stock certificate, my government bondall paper. Did they expect the trust would be made of diamonds?

What of the millions of Americans who own Treasury bonds, all paper? Seven trillion dollars of national debt has been spent on government programs, and there is "nothing left." Has the US defrauded the world of $7 trillion?
