"A national debt, if it is not excessive, will be to us a national blessing." ~Alexander Hamilton (c.1756 - 1804)

"There can be no profit in the making or selling of things to be destroyed in war. Men may think that they have such profit, but in the end the profit will turn out to be a loss." ~Alexander Hamilton (c.1756 - 1804)

Not to defend the current Fed Resv, I can understand why it was designed the way it was. A public Fed would fall prey to the whims of politics, which party was in power. Being quasi public insulates the Fed from this problem.

One of the downfalls of our system today is that the current Fed instead has been taken over by the Financial Industry.

The leadership of the Fed has to be insulated from industry as well.

Shift the paradigm - return ethics and good business practice to the curriculum along with the concepts of people over profits and health over profits and prosperity for all.

Yawn...

Your comment (reaction) is what I expect from you. OH and I should have added to my last comment - responsibility and accountability.

[-] -3 points by vvv0721 (-290) 2 years ago

You forgot "Truth, Justice, and The American Way" not to mention 'Baseball, Hot Dogs, Apple Pie and Chevrolet".

Take a hint, Troll: You're boring us.

Another truth about yourself? You are a multiple personality? Or you think that you are royalty ( which would be close as you are a royal pain in the ass )? Or that you are demon possessed and so you speak of yourself in the plural?

"Us" implies more than one. It was used correctly in this context. I need say and will say no more about that.

[-] 3 points by DKAtoday (25009) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

What? I still can't understand you. Are you choking on something? Spit the mitten out and try again.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (25009) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Not everyone - shills trolls corpoRATists those that attack me - you know the usual.

[-] 0 points by TryingForAnOpenMind (-358) from Yonkers, NY 2 years ago

weird stuff. why do you respond by re-posting old posts? bad enough to read some of these once.

So that the unmentionable can't go back and alter their statement - they are on record.

Also as these threads can get jumbled - I will respond to good comments the same way - give credit where credit is due - helps avoid misunderstandings.

Of course DKAtoday can alter copied postings however he likes, e.g.:

I am neither shill, troll nor "corpoRATist" and I think you're a worthless piece of shit, DKAtoday. My question is who besides shills, trolls and corpoRATists DOESN'T think you're a worthless piece of shit?

[-] -1 points by TryingForAnOpenMind (-358) from Yonkers, NY 2 years ago

DKA you are way to uptight. you should reduce the amount of liberal bs you are pushing. Don't you have any hobbies? is there anything else you could do in coon rapids for kicks?

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (25009) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

LOL - you think I am uptight? U can charecterize me how you want - but I am a people-ist. Pro-Humanity. Humanity Partisan. Humanrace-ist.

Who are you working for, DKAtoday? Who sent you here to turn this forum into a meely-mouth circle-jerk? Karl or the Kochs?

[-] -2 points by TryingForAnOpenMind (-358) from Yonkers, NY 2 years ago

DKA seems somewhat challenged. And has admitted to never traveling beyond coon rapids city limits.

I hear the air is bad in LA

[-] 0 points by TryingForAnOpenMind (-358) from Yonkers, NY 2 years ago

How may I ask is LA relevant to the cause DKA's gibberish? which IMHO may be due to a life lived in coon rapids. DKA reminds me of yesterdays coffee, a little weak in the bean.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (25009) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

U R the one to put words in peoples mouths and you proved the point in you lame comment.

Every time I trade words with you, DKAtoday, I feel the need to take a shower to wash away the slime.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (25009) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Well geeze what do you expect? Probably about the only time someone makes you look at yourself.

[-] -2 points by vvv0721 (-290) 2 years ago

Writing for 6th grade readership, DKAtoday? If I had to sum you up in one word, it would be a toss-up between "petty" and "pitiful".

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (25009) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

I already know that you don't like me. Figured that out the 1st time you attacked me. It was later that I discovered you only like yourself - in an apparent masochistic sort of way.

And the revolving door policy between top execs in firms like Goldman Sachs, and JP Morgan, with positions within the Fed Resv.
