    19 out of 20 USMB posters will dismiss this as conspiracy theory bullshit even though every bit of it is historically accurate.

    When I first joined this board I brought up this issue repeatedly, and all I could get is a few replies. I agree with you 100%, but no one is going to discuss it.

    Time does not permit me right now to point out the flaws in the cartoon, but when I have the time, I will.

    I also do not think you will find many people willing to watch a half hour video. And before you call them lazy, I would like to point out you didn't post any explanation or comments with the video.

    Take some time to write down what "facts" you think matter to the discussion you would like to have.

    For those who don't want to watch the whole video, you can always read Post 14 in this topic. :razz:

    It will take slightly less time.

    The movie is 'historically' accurate. I have no need to write down 'facts' for people who will just ignore them in favor of their own agenda or dismiss any source that does not meet their approval.

    I have given off replying to people who argue out of some demented addiction to arguing for its own sake.

    The movie is there for those who wish to watch it, ponder the facts provided, and then make up their own minds on what, if anything, they intend to take from it.

    Give us the Reader's Digest version.

    If you can't summarize it, why should we believe you understand it?

    Here is My whole point. You just tossed an insult for no other reason that you like to toss insults, not debate, not try to understand the root cause of our monetary problems. The movie is there for anyone to look at.

    It is not in phone/text shorthand for the terminally lazy.

    Say goodbye.

    If you can't watch a 30 minute video, I'm guessing it would be pointless to suggest reading a book.

    'The Creature From Jekyll Island' is a MUST read if you want to understand our banking system.

    Asking you to articulate a view is not an insult.

    I've spent nearly 20 years investing and trading in the capital markets, and I learned a long time ago that if you can't articulate a thesis, i.e. you rely on others, you don't understand it and you are probably intellectually limited. This is especially true of highly ideological people. Those people generally don't survive in my business.
