Federal Reserve cashing tax checks not right
Well, April 15th has come and gone, and like any patriotic American, you sent your check to the "Department of the Treasury" or the "IRS" to help the government pay its bills. We have to support our men in Afghanistan and Iraq, don't we? I know we must.
If we fail to pay our taxes, how could we fund Social Security, Medicare, the FAA, the FBI, the CIA ... well you get the picture ... or do you?
Do you know who will cash your check? You think it's the government of course, don't you? Well in a few weeks when you get your canceled checks back for this month, see who cashed it! But wait, your bank only sends you a front copy of the check. You must call your bank immediately and request the actual check. If its not too late and you can get it back, you will find that the Federal Reserve cashed it!
So what's the problem you say? Anyone knows that the FED is a government agency. Look in the blue pages of the Dallas phone book where the government agencies are listed. You will not find the FED's number there. Now look over in the white pages and you will find the FED listed along with other corporations and individuals. You see the Fed is a corporation and not really a part of the government. It's our central bank, who like any corporation makes a profit for its shareholders.
Who are these shareholders? You guessed it ... Goldman Sack, J.P. Morgan, Bank of America and other Wall Street banks. Yes, these are the banks that took $850 billion of our tax dollars, don't have to pay it back, and won't tell congress how it was dispersed! Not one cent of your tax dollar goes directly to your government ... or is it your government?
R, just R
