Whether you live in Ventura, California or Amarillo, Texas, sooner or later you’re going to have to figure out how to make financial ends meet.  And the sooner the better.  That’s because at the end of any day it’s really important to be able to put food on the family’s table.  Especially if you’ve got the only mouth in your family to feed.  But if there’s more, say a loving spouse and maybe some kids, then you’re probably acutely aware of just how tough it is to make it, how little dust is actually left in the family bank accounts, that you make not nearly enough money on your part-time job to keep the dog on a healthy vegetarian diet, that there’s no health insurance coverage bearing your family name, and that the state of the collective well-being of the family is fading faster than a Chicago Cub pennant run with all the poisons your family is being subjected to on a daily basis.

All you want to do is feel good, breathe easy, for a change, and feel some personal value and the pride of being able to take care of your family the right way.  But the fact is, your economical freedom is at a minimum.  So is your confidence and personal security, and that’s phrasing it mildly.  So what’re you gonna to do?  Call ghostbusters?  Roll up in a ball and die?  Potato bugs do that, people don’t.  Not heads of family.  They can’t afford to.  Heads of families need to come up with solutions.

The head of the family needs to be mature enough to take the responsibility to understand the surrounding financial environment so they can take care of their families’ needs in a healthy way.  Heads of families need to understand the true nature of the illusionary world that surrounds them.  They need to be able to read through the delusions and lies, peel out the layers of truth, slap them back together and understand how it applies to them.  And then they need to make that information work for their families.  Their families’ lives depend upon it.

One of the things that is critical to understand for any family’s survival is how money really works.  And that’s where it gets really tricky, because that’s where all the smoke and mirrors come out generated by those who are trying to hide the money ball from us.  They lie, manipulate, make us vulnerable, then steal it right from under our noses.  And we’re talking about the banksters, those nasty, financial, bloodthirsty beasts who will sacrifice each and every one of us in the name of greater profits.  And the nastiest bankster of them all is the central bankster.

So what is a central bankster?

A central bankster is someone who runs a central bank.  According to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, a central bank is the same as a reserve bank or monetary authority.  In other words, a central bank is an institution that manages a state’s currency, money supply, and interest rates.

Okay, so far so good, but what does that have to do with putting food on the family’s table?  Reading on, we learn that central banks play manager to the nation’s finances.  Sounds good, but then what’s the U.S. Treasury for?  Wiki continues to say that central banks usually “oversee the commercial banking system of their respective countries.”  As contrasted against a commercial bank, a central bank possesses a monopoly (uh oh) “on increasing the amount of money in the nation, and usually also prints the national currency, which usually serves as the nation’s legal tender.”

So what have we learned so far?  We have learned that the central bank of the United States, the Federal Reserve, is a legal “monopoly” that oversees all commercial banking in this country.  And we thought monopolies were illegal, right?

So the primary function of our country’s central bank is to “manage the nation’s money supply (monetary policy),” through active duties such as managing interest rates, setting the reserve requirement, and acting as a lender of last resort to the banking sector during times of bank insolvency or financial crisis.

Got it.  So, we, the average head-of-household-Joe, just learned that our central bank sets the monetary policy in our country that does…what, exactly?  Okay, so let’s try that again.  We just learned, assuming Wikipedia can be believed, that the big boy bank of the greatest country on this planet is responsible for this nation’s monetary policy and is “a lender of last resort to the banking sector during times of bank insolvency or financial crisis.”

Okay, now we got it.  But wait.  We’re the ones locked in the financial crisis.  We’re the ones who need financial help.  Oh yeah, but we’re not a bank.  So us common folk, toiling out here in places like Ventura, California and Corpus Christi, Texas, the peon class that we are, who has no money, no health insurance, and probably no job, with a family living on the brink of financial servitude, who are in desperate need of our own financial bailouts, get none, while the bank of monopoly, known as the Federal Reserve, bails billions out to banks when they suffer “bank insolvency or financial crisis.”  Why is that?  And, more importantly, who is going to bail us out of our financial crisis?

No, one, that’s who.  That’s why we’ve got to figure it out.  That’s why we’re here, trying to learn how these beastie boys of the central banks manipulate the money, how they squeeze it from us to benefit themselves and their families, and what we might be able to do about it to keep our families alive.
