Maybe, but, being federal reserve awareness day...

It's worth a look. The "United States note" is entirely different then the Federal Reserve note. They are both dollars, units of currency, but one is issued by the US treasury, the other, a private banking cabal to mimic the US note. The Federal Reserve note used to have the language written in plain english "redeemed in lawful money" upon demand.

This stuff runs deep, and once again is worth a look. Some state that you can force a bank under 12 USC § 411 to redeem your notes. This doesn't allow them to fractionally lend your money because...31 USC § 5115 note 2b "may not be held or used for a reserve." Further, since you are outside the system, a few have claimed and rightfully won all their withholdings from the IRS back, claiming lawful money is non-taxable (this might be a stretch). Either way, it's been an interesting learning experience...

All good stuff...
