"If the American people ever allow private banks
to control the issue of their money,
first by inflation and then by deflation,
the banks and corporations that will
grow up around them (around the banks),
will deprive the people of their property
until their children will wake up homeless
on the continent their fathers conquered."

I'm not sure he is a good source for advice. He died broke. Montecello was raffled off.
Well there were no takers so it wasn;t. An attempt to raffle it was made

Now add Eisenhower's warning against the MIC and rap it over the top of The Simpsons theme and, kid, you've got yourself a hit record.

This is all you need to know on the topic:

"Banks are like whores; first they take your money and then they F you"

Banks umm the amazing they can milk people. I deposited a Canadian Check from my Canadian boatyard. Return on taxes paid It was a lot of tax money. I got screwed. First there was a $60.00 processing fee and then the determined therate of exchange in such a way the collected another thousand. The difference between the two coultries was like .0004 Basically the same / I closed theaccount

First a bogus article falsely attributed to Wyatt Emmerich and The Cleveland Current.

Now a bogus quotation falsely attributed to Thomas Jefferson.

What a day!

"American People", "Deflation", "corporations" and "Homeless" are not 18th and early 19th century words and phrases.
