To the OP. I think they are waiting to see how the new college football conferences and football playoff system turns out.

Maybe, occasionally. Not sure because they get into stuff I know very little about. He makes ridiculous, conspiracy theory nonsense crap that is hard to believe. He gets into arguments with people that are in the business that he is arguing about. I suspect that he is just a narcissist and doesn't really understand what he doesn't know about a lot of subjects.

You said the Federal Reserve is no more a part of government than Federal Express. Did you forget that?



I also have said now 30 times that the Federal Reserve is not an entity of the federal government, which is a fact. You've been arguing this all day.

Did I not say that the Fed Ex comment was more of a sensational comment just to highlight the fact that the Federal Reserve is not actually federal?

Why reduce it down to this? You've been arguing against me all day on this.. Is the Federal Reserve an official entity of the federal government? No. No it's not. So I have no idea why you continue to argue. Concede for once in your online forum career, I promise it won't kill you.

quote:

Is English your primary language? "without loaning it from a bank"???? Seriously?



Is that poor grammar or a bad point? And if it is a bad point what does English have to do with it? They're the only two presidents to create money that didn't have interest attached to it from a loan. What is difficult to understand?

quote:

Once again selective memory on your part. You asked me in that thread what was factually incorrect about the statements made in some paranoid kook's video you linked. I pointed out 4 factual errors he made in the first 59 seconds of his video regarding how U.S. Treasury debt and funding works in the real world. You ran away from that thread and never responded, which is a frequent tactic you use.



Haha. Really? What you're talking about has nothing to do with JFK/Lincoln, but the Fed (yet the comment you quoted was in reference to JFK/Lincoln). And in that thread you said you didn't want to watch the video because you already knew everything on the subject... that is where I left the thread.

The Federal Reserve is a congressionally created quasi-public entity. Its chairman is appointed by the President of the United States and whose apponitment must be confirmed by the U.S. senate.

The Fed's continued existence is dependent on satisfying congress that it is meeting over the long term its two congressional mandates: full employment while controlling inflation.

Really? Just because I didn't tell an online forum what I do for a living doesn't mean I'm unemployed. Glad to see you're so mature.

So if you were an accountant, economics professor, oil tycoon or a creepy little guy that lives in his mom's basement playing on a computer would drive someone on this forum to try to figure out who you are and where you live? Dang - you really are paranoid.

BTW - I spent 40 years in the healthcare business; clinical, administrative and technology (the last 10 years). Retired and enjoying it.

You may not know what they're talking about, but that's a pretty damn accurate assessment of the poster you're describing.

no, you didn't. Link to where you said that.

I'm leaving this thread. The OP is correct...we have highjacked his thread. You jumped into it just to stalk me when I answered his OP question. "Or what" was his second option to his seceeding question. "Or what" means we are not seceeding.

Apologies to 4X4 for getting away from his thread's purpose.

He's the typical "I'm the smartest, most educated, most well-read person here" no matter the subject. Posting anything outside of 100% agreement with whatever he said will result in him calling you an idiot/retard/stupid.

Like typical consipracy theorists, if you don't buy 100% into his belief of events, he labels you a dullard that "doesn't respond well to having your core beliefs challenged"

Don't forget that you have to be a mind reader with that particular poster. When he tells people, "find one thing in this thread I am wrong about", you have to understand that he doesn't really mean that. It's only selective posts in his thread.

If you show him where he is clearly full of sh*t in the thread, he ignores it and starts asking about other posts of his. In other words, he acts like a tool.

Speaking of tools, the secession petitions were essentially just tools for people to express their displeasure. It isn't going anywhere.

I just like how all of his threads are written as informational rather than asking a question or discussion.

He's basically this guy.

Witholding what I do for a living has nothing to do with paranoia. And I'm not a huge fan of doing something just because someone asks.. I didn't feel my job has anything to do with knowing the Federal Reserve is independent from the federal government.

But to please you.. and to unravel your paranoia theory.

I have a business degree, I played minor pro hockey for 3 years after college (one year in Germany). This is my first winter retired. I spent the summer working on a vineyard near my house.. since the fall I've been working for a commercial carbon fiber company, I'm in operations.. mostly procurement.. I'm still learning about my job. I really hate it. Thinking about going back to the vineyard this summer and getting into wine making. Making money isn't really what's important to me.

Well.. some things are just facts. Like the Federal Reserve not being an official federal entity.
