The Federal Reserve Bank is going after a tiny Payne County Bank in Oklahoma over of all things.........Christmas. It was a very compelling video the former Louisiana House Representative put together to make his case against the Fed. My belief is that if Congress would do it's Constitutionally Mandated job of controlling the money supply instead of Borrowing it from the privately owned Federal Reserve we wouldn't have to pay Income Tax, which is used to pay ONLY THE INTEREST on the National Debt.

Every friggin year, the right-wing moans about a supposed "war on Christmas". I'm glad I can't relate to the world of fear and paranoia that they live in.

So what did you think of the Federal Reserve Banks action against Payne County Bank?

There really is a War On Christmas. This woman was gunned down while hanging Christmas decorations in a church. Most people missed this story because there were only 5 shot and only 3 were killed.Just another day.

That's your conclusion, a war of Christmas because some nut goes on a shooting spree?

Quote:
State police said they were rushing to Juniata Valley Road about 9 a.m. to respond to a report that someone was firing shots in the area when they passed a white truck and the driver began shooting at them.

They said the man, whom neighbors identified as 44-year-old Jeffrey Michael, fired at the first cruiser, hitting a trooper in the wrist.

Bullets hit the second police car in the line, sending shards of glass and shrapnel into a trooper's eye.

The two troopers turned around to continue their chase when Mr. Michael rammed into a third police car, turned around and fired at the first trooper's chest, hitting his protective vest, investigators said.

The troopers returned fire and one of them killed Mr. Michael.

It wasn't until after Mr. Michael was shot that police confirmed that he had killed three people.
...
A woman was killed while hanging Christmas decorations in Juniata Valley Gospel Church, less than a half-mile from Mr. Michael's single-story white home. Frankstown Supervisor George Henry identified her as Kimberly Scott.

At some point, Mr. Michael rammed his truck into another car and shot the driver, whom neighbors identified as William Rhodes.

Police said he also shot a man, whom neighbor's identified as Mr. Rhodes' father-in-law, Kenneth Lynn, at a home along Juniata Valley Road.

Oh jeez, that's a stretch! I'm sure if the woman was shot while eating at McDonald's you would be screaming "There's a war on Big Macs!". Spare me the false victimhood.

Isn't the narrator David Duke, Grand Wizard of the KKK and former Louisiana R state representative? You know--the neo nazi white supremacist? Now we know where the OP's loyalties are. Good lord....I'm tired of crazy people.
