What is the Creature from Jekyll Island, Mom? I never heard of that. It sounds scary!
Don’t worry Mom! I’ll protect you!
Hey Mom, the Daily Prompt for the other day was about being Unplugged, maybe you should create a link for that. Maybe you’ll get new readers, or maybe you’ll just get spam ping backs.
It’s worth a try, right Mom?
Who is this weird looking guy? Ben Break-a-knee? Oh, Ben Bernanke. He doesn’t look very smart. Why is he scratching his eyebrow? Does he have fleas?
I refuse to believe that.
Ok, so who’s this funny looking guy? He looks like he could use some prune juice.
Mom says he was President in 1913 when the Federal Reserve Act was passed. That’s when they started issuing Federal Reserve Notes, and set up the Federal Reserve system, which is not a Federal agency. It’s a central bank run by bankers, not the government.
Woody signed it into law on December 23, 1913. Gee, that sounds really close to Christmas. I bet people didn’t hear about what was happening.
All this talk is making me tired.
I’m going to take a nap.
Mom hopes to be back tomorrow, if she doesn’t have a headache!
