Hangtown, California. Rope: useful restricting, constricting...

... & other useful purposes.

Opening line in the Fed, a Christmas Story. "An Act To provide for the establishment of Federal reserve banks, to furnish an elastic currency, to afford means of rediscounting commercial paper, to establish a more effective supervision of banking in the United States, and for other purposes."

-Federal Reserve Act Public—No. 43—63d Congress.] [H. R. 7837.] Cast in order of appearance. Elastic casting? A staged event without a stage? Script of the act. Screen play coming soon?.

December 23, 1913. The Eve before Christmas Eve. Twas a darl. darl night. Not a creature was stiring... Thus begins the act to eviscerate United States Banking. Money of the United States has left this supposed "Reserve System" decades ago. Our gold is gone. It is a hollow promissory note system. Vacuous & void.

An ”elastic currency” is a measure of what? Elastic ruler to measure a ruler? Make-believe?
