In reply to comment: What should I say to those (see in situ)

It could be argued that a central bank should not profit...

Was it not originally created to PROTECT the American financial system from booms and busts?

Never mind Nixon's statement that "We are all Keynesians now" --- We are are all SLAVES now.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
