David and Boston Paul were sitting in their chairs, each in front of their own Computer on opposite sides of the Planet.
Paul was drinking a cup of very strong Herbal Tea with his Breakfast and David was sipping a whiskey on the rocks.
As their beverages worked their Speedy Magic and neurons began dancing in each of their brains; their whimsical conversation turned from updates on Family, recent elections and news of high school friends to the subject of Money…
Here is how the chat went down…
David: – wipes up a bit of condensation on his desk from the whiskey glass: Sunday there already?
Boston Paul: Yawning: Sunday AM, indeed.
David: Did you drink last night? How’s the head?
Boston Paul: I didn’t drink too much last night. I fell asleep early trying to get my son to sleep. I missed my buddy’s house-warming party … oops. What are you up to? Must be 9PM there, eh?
David: I’m just winding down, myself. Helped my brother Pete tile his bathroom floor. Then I helped another buddy put in a new bay window and a back door, too.
Boston Paul: Right on… you are just the Little Helper!
David: I’ve been going for 12 hours! Slowing down now and finally relaxing.
Boston Paul: You should move to Taiwan, I could use your help & expertise as well!
David: They do it for me, too. It’s all Payback. We call it a Day for a Day.
Boston Paul: Aaahhh, there it is. I like Payback in the form of NON-monetary trade
David: I hear you. It’s always a good thing.
Boston Paul: Especially when you realize the paper currency used in trade has no real value.
David: My friend just turned me on to a new song by The Tea Party called Paint it Black. It’s a Rolling Stones cover. This economy is sucking so bad right now.
Boston Paul: It will continue to suck, Ol’ Chum. The Amerikan government has no control of its Monetary System.
David: True! I guess you know we got a new Prez.
Boston Paul: New Man same BS though! He is not much different from McSame (McCain).
David: Its our only hope now - always so much BS. McSame – LOL I never heard that one. Funny. Ultimately, they’re all the same.
Boston Paul: The only difference between both of them is the one is 1/2 Black and the other is 1/2 Retarded & White. One is Young & the other is Ancient.
Boston Paul: Neither of them support taking Troops out of Iraq. Both of them support the Bailout Plan for the banks - The Banks that f*cked it all up in the first place, by the way
David: Oh, I know!
Boston Paul: So now YOU, my brother & friend, have to bail out the banks and save them from their f*ckup – which is interesting because what most people do not realize is that the Federal Reserve Bank is NOT a government entity. It is a Private Bank in partnership with the Government (It is still early, I’m typing slow, be patient with me). The Federal Reserve Bank (FED) is about as governmental as Federal Express. You know the History of Paper Money, right bro?
David: Probably not as well as you. But I’m sure you’re going to tell me. Ha ha.
Boston Paul: I am going to tell you as fast as my delicate little fag* fingers can type. In 1913, The FED took Power/Control of the Money Supply in Amerika. The US Gov now has to borrow money from the FED (if it was a real Government Agency, how could it borrow money from itself and then pay itself back with interest?). The History of it goes basically like this: You had some gold, but it was too dangerous or cumbersome to carry it around, so you would bring it to a ‘safe house’ (we now call them Banks). They would give you a receipt letting you know how much you deposited. To make a long story short, People started using these receipts instead of money because of convenience. Why travel 100 miles on Horseback to take out a few grams of gold out to pay a Debt, when the receipt has the same value?
David: Fag fingers doing well.
Boston Paul: lol
David: It all makes perfect sense.
Boston Paul: The banks realized that no one was trading in their receipts for Gold and Paper Money and subsequently modern banking was born. That’s when they started lending out Paper (OUR money), but it was always backed by gold. We have been off the gold system a long time now (since 1971) and this is where it gets interesting. Inflation and devaluation of money are intentional. This is how they control the Masses.
David: I can see that happening very easily.
Boston Paul: So the government is going to borrow money from the FED so they can start bail out the banks.
David: …and with my money.
Boston Paul: The FED is going to go to their Printer and PRINT this money (which is backed by nothing) and lend it to the Government at interest.
David: It’s brilliant, isn’t it?
Boston Paul: It is. The Value comes in form of Debt. Debt is value to them because if you are in Debt, then you are their Slave.
David: Interesting thought. It seems it’s hard not to be a slave.
Boston Paul: This is madness! They are trying to pay off this debt WITH MORE DEBT.
David: That can only lead to a dead-end.
Boston Paul: Indeed! Or a total crash of the market which is what is happening now.
David: A very deep black hole that nothing can get out of. I’m feeling that now.
Boston Paul: This loan that Obama is supporting only prolongs the Inevitable.
David: And what do you say that is? Complete collapse?
Boston Paul: It could very well be. My advice to you Brother Love, is to quietly take your money out of the bank and invest it in commodities, or gold. Except you really can’t eat gold or use it for much of anything practical.
David: Not much left right now… these are tough times.
Boston Paul: There is not a lot Americans can do about it unless they Unite… Bush & Cohorts have taken away all your rights with the Patriot Act.
David: That is good advice. Bush’s Cohorts are probably reading this right now.
Boston Paul: It’s all good.
David: Yes it is good. Nice chat. Your hands must be killing you. Good talking. I really miss our conversations.
Boston Paul: I miss it too, bro. Tell everyone hello.
David: You too. Have a great Sunday!
Boston Paul: Have a great Saturday night! I wish I was there. Peace & Love…
David: Out for now…
* Fag: The term has additional meanings in British English, where “faggot” traditionally means a bundle of sticks and faggots are a kind of meatball. In British English, “fag” is common slang for a cigarette or for hard work. In some UK public schools, fagging was the name given to the practice where a younger boy (a “fag”) acted as an unpaid servant for an older boy.
