Not really a joke.

It just occurred to me that when speaking of The Fed a more appropriate way to refer to them would be:

The F 'ed.



I'll show myself out.

There really should be a proper name.
Calling them by their legal name got us where we are.

Wish I could think of a clever one.

Evil.
Destroy them.

Can't give them a proper name when you aren't legally allowed to know who they are.

your average idiot would consider them the retail store that competes with Wal-Mart by targeting the shopping patterns of women using targeted advertisement based on semi legal consumer spying.

The whole Christian bible thing is worn out, too.

The mark of the beast must be debt- but who can really live in this country without any?
The homeless, destitute, and trailer park welfare hogs have more net worth than your middle class family.

Pro Tip... don't post drunk.

To the OP, why not? They are as Federal as Federal Express and don't have a "Reserve" of anything worth anything.

Hopefully we can purge the country of them soon and go back to having something besides "Federal Reserve Notes".

That's not true. I can go downtown where I live and buy as much gold as I can afford, either in bullion/coins or in metered bars from 1/10th up to whole 1oz bars of solid gold. I'm sure people with more money can get actual gold bricks like you see in the movies. I think what you're referring to is the US going off the gold standard.

From 1933 to about 1975 it was illegal in the US for citizens to own gold bullion.

So you could have wedding bands, jewelry, gold necklaces, etc, in smaller quantities but no large amounts or gold bars.

Really? I guess I didn't know that. What law was that? Not doubting you, I can try search terms but a link would be great.

The Gold Reserve Act

link



The Gold Reserve Act outlawed most private possession of gold, forcing individuals to sell it to the Treasury, after which it was stored in United States Bullion Depository at Fort Knox and other locations.

... but the real con was, as soon as they bought up everybody's gold for about $20 an oz.

they automatically raised the price of gold to $35 an oz.

TY for that link.



A year earlier, in 1933, Executive Order 6102 had made it a criminal offense for U.S. citizens to own or trade gold anywhere in the world, with exceptions for some jewelry and collector's coins. These prohibitions were relaxed starting in 1964 – gold certificates were again allowed for private investors on April 24, 1964, although the obligation to pay the certificate holder on demand in gold specie would not be honored. By 1975 Americans could again freely own and trade gold.


Funny enough, after my last post I searched "us gold bullion illegal" and the first link was EO 6102. After reading both, I'm sure I've read them before and I guess forgot? Thanks for reminding me.

I wonder who came up with that scam. How does a government just set the price of gold? Shouldn't that be dictated by the markets?

Here isa good explainer although I'm unsure about the role of the Federal Reserve in it all, some articles say the gold went to The Federal Reserve, others say the it went to the Treasury. I don't know enough about these things to really understand what actually happened with lthe gold.
*Hmm, only Wikipedia mentions the treasury, all others say the F'ed.*

Edit: this image seems to cover it
