by Gary Christianson, Miles Franklin:
The song “Cell Block Tango” from the Oscar winning movie “Chicago” included the line, “He Ran Into My Knife Ten Times.”
Those seven words suggest anger, bleeding and murder…
The American people have “run into a financial knife” many times in the last century. (Solutions listed at the end.)
In 1913 congress approved The Federal Reserve, the U.S. central bank which created dollar devaluation, massive unpayable debts, transfers of wealth to the financial cartel and more. This knife cut deep and caused huge economic blood loss.
The Income Tax (1913). Massive blood loss occurred from this knife blow. No discussion needed.
The 1929 stock market crash. “Good times” do not last forever. The economic boom of the 1920s suffered a death blow in 1929. Will 2018 be the new 1929?
President Roosevelt (1933) confiscated gold and made private gold ownership illegal. Exceptions occurred, but citizens lost most or all gold coins. Double eagles ($20 gold coins) no longer circulated. Silver dollars and paper certificates remained in circulation.
