2. Unfortunately any threads about banks and banking policy
drops like a rock. Clearly something's not right with our banking system, but nobody really wants to talk about it. Gossip and politics are a lot easier.

I've been studying the federal reserve bank. Lots of people act like you're a "grassy knoll" person when you mention it, but I still feel in my gut, something's not quite right about it. You hear people saying things like the president picks the chairman, and the families who own the banks involved have to purchase subscriptions. But if the damn thing is non-profit to the banks involved, why the hell do they crawl over each other to be part of it? If the bank picks the president (no proof this is the case) what difference would it make that the prseident picks the Chairman?

I don't know. After studying it for a while I may just find that it's perfectly altruistic. Right now my gut still tells me, something is going on.

Pardon me while I put my flak jacket back on. :hide:
