  • The Confiscation Of Bank Deposits And The Derivative Debt: James Corbett Interviews Ellen Brown On GRTV (Video) [View article]
    "Do laws establish acceptable and unacceptable conduct? Yes"

    Did the slavery laws pre-Civil War "establish moral conduct"?

    "Yes, I can"

    Excellent! Are the words greed and morality actually in the section you're going to provide?

    "In other words, laws establish moral conduct"

    That's an interesting claim. I don't happen to think it's correct, though.

    "It's not money. Your debt has merely been " discharged" to the Federal government. ......."

    No, my debt was paid. The Federal government is not and was not involved.

    Yes, you explained that paying off a debt with FRNs doesn't actually pay off the debt.

    While offering no proof whatsoever.

    I've been paying off debts for decades with FRNs and never had a single creditor come back and claim my debt was unsatisfied by that method of payment.

  • Russian Roulette: Taxpayers Could Be On The Hook For Trillions In Oil Derivatives [View article]
    "I question the $1 trillion figure but it depends on when you mean we would have switched to renewables"

    Just throwing a really big number out there.
    If Bush spent an extra $1 trillion on "green energy" would that have stopped the drought? 50% of the drought? None of the drought?

    "But you knew you were offering a strawman, didn't you."

    You think my questions were a strawman? You should double check the definition.

    No reaction to the idea that our ethanol boom caused unrest by raising food prices around the globe?

    "But at least a couple studies have found that the one in the fertile crescent was historically anomalous"

    Historically anomalous? You mean, unscheduled? Bigger than it should have been? What do you mean exactly?

    Pointing out your errors isn't fiction.
    Still looking for a definition of discharge?

    "in the hands of publicly accountable, transparent boards of governors"

    Accountable to politicians? Appointed by politicians?
    Pressured by politicians to lend to favored groups?
    First time home buyers? Sub prime borrowers? Green energy producers?
    Inner city borrowers? Illegal aliens borrowers?

    I'm sure the political contributions would dry right up.

    "Their warning proved prophetic, as we now know that the epic unnatural drought in the "fertile crescent" was a driving force behind the Syrian Civil War and the rise of ISIS"

    If we had spent another $1 trillion on "green energy", could we have avoided the drought? Do all droughts end if we add enough solar capacity?

    Could we have had less instability in the Middle East if we hadn't spiked the price of corn with our ethanol idiocy?

    "because a lot of business executives are more interested in greed than morality"

    Can you show me the section of GS that covers greed or morality?

    "so that those who are greedy at least know when they have crossed it and are subject to being held accountable for it"

    There is/was no greed under GS?
    No accountability without GS?

    "More citizens need to rise, step up, educate themselves and request Glass Steagall be reinstated in the US"

    Why do we need Glass Steagall?

    To stop banks from writing bad mortgages?

    "If low oil prices result in failure of any financial institution that then requires a bailout, then it IS time to nationalize the banks, put the leaders in jail and put a stop to this nonsense"

    Yes, we must put bank lending and investing decisions into the hands of politicians.

    What could go wrong?

    "The commie part of the US banking system is that the taxpayers cover the corporation's loses, as if the bank is a state enterprise"

    Which bank losses were covered by the taxpayer during the recent crisis?
