Stolen Lines #3

There's something that I've been thinking about and wondering about and I'm very curious: am I the only one who knows?

The rules: Start your post with the above line. End your post with "I stole the first line of this post from Then We Came To The End, by Joshua Ferris" And maybe link back to me so people can understand the point of the post.

And whatever you put in the middle is up to you.

There's no deadline. Write whenever you feel like it. If you want to have your post included, just leave a comment or send me an email telling me you've posted.

PS. This is open to absolutely anyone. All you have to do it write it.

Here, you can find the previous Stolen Lines.

You’ve done an interesting thing here with “stolen lines” and probably encouraged us to write about something we maybe wouldn’t have. That's a good thing.

Off the topic but you're American and seem intelligent...

I don't know whether you've thought deeply about your country's economic crisis but it's time (in light of the Federal Reserve printing 1 trillion dollars ) to consider this...

Why don't you/the American public ask, WHO owns the Federal Reserve and why it it that they as a PRIVATE organisation have the power to print money (and charge interest for this !) and they don't even pay taxes !.

Few of the American public know that the Federal Reserve is a PRIVATE organisation - so secret that no one is sure who owns it, although this is thought to be big private banks !. Don't believe me ? - research it for yourself.

Now doesn't that cast a new light to the bailout of FINANCIAL companies and the Federal Reserve's printing of 1 trillion dollars - effectively devaluing the public's -your hard earned savings, which is functionally equivalent to increasing your taxes. The wealth of the rich - is being maintained at the expense of the populace.

You've had and still have wolves guarding your chickens. Tim Geithner used to be head of the Federal Reserve - now he's in government. Paulson was CEO of Goldman Sachs, 2005 - 2006. He made over $500 million from exactly those shonky practices which precipitated your crisis.

The banks effectively printed money by the CFD's, etc. Now the Federal Reserve (banks again !!) is doing that literally..... more of the same !! - only a fool expects different results from doing the same thing ! The rich (bankers) are preserving their wealth and profitering at the expense of the whole public. Taxpayers ( - you !) are effectively working for the rich and the Federal Reserve !. The money is not even going to your government !. Have a think about it ! And I'm not even an American.
I just hate to see you guys been swindled.

The Federal Reserve is the BIGGEST con in history and what's most ironical about all this is that the American public thinks the Federal reserve is acting in the public ie taxpayers interest !.

Grace, I love these stolen lines. They make me feel like... like... like... I can't think of anything. Could you make a new stolen lines project for comments so that I can be creative here as well?
