Pay close attention

When someone from the Gummint starts with talk about someone being tried for terrorism charges, when all they were doing was minting real money, you have a real problem.

Check that; a really big fucking problem.

And it's only going to get worse.

Look into the real consequences of Executive Order #6102 some time at your leisure. That one stroke of the pen effectively deepened and broadened the scope of Great Depression incalcualably.

Here's a hint: Those who still had the wherewithall to provide investment capital and, uh, jobs subsequent to Black Monday were effectively stripped of the ability to do either. F.D.R. first artificially devalued their principal wealth-retaining commodity then ordered the forced sale thereof at what could only charitably be described as a fire-sale price. I still for the life of me can't find Constitutional permission for the Executive branch to have done so.

Sonofabitch shoulda been shot; this latest is of the same cloth, differing only in that a different branch of the .gov is trying it.

There just ain't enough stout rope to go around . . .

I've read that EO, and recently too, and it's a bitch, ain't it?

The real problem, for us anyway, is now the probability of The wOn and Congress doing a bait-and-switch with all of the funds that are in things like 401(k) retirement accounts; writing IOU's to those accounts, and directly raiding that cash, to fund their crap, or pay the Chinese what they've already borrowed, or interest on the $14 trillion they've managed to steal from us all...pretty much fill in what you want.

The whole thing is predicated upon the idea that there is a law propping up all of those accounts, and that the money is being "invested," per their rules, so by altering a law (of which we know Congress is always ready to do), they can legally confiscate all of that cash.

It's all just a bunch of smoke and mirrors, as you know, a whitewash and sorry excuse for doing whatever it is that they want, when they want...sounds just like 1932 all over again, because they are sure that what they are doing is going to fix whatever problem they perceive.

What they haven't accounted for is the unintended consequences of it all.

Things will go quite wrong, and in a hurry, if the morons go this route, and I don't give them much credit in the intelligence department. Congress is filled with idiots at the levers of power, and the supposed intelligensia is right behind the thin screen of separation of power. Like George Soros and his ilk.

Oh, and FDR. I think it's a good idea that we dig that bastard up and do some really public and spiteful acts upon whatever is left of his corpse. At the very least, we need to piss on his grave and salt the earth upon which he lays. Jeezis, was he a bastard! And stupid. Hey, he kinda reminds me of another Pres...

Another Executive who idolizes the man/myth, no less.
