Governments, worldwide, are incompetent. To some degree that works in the Peoples’ favor.
Some time ago we were told a story by an airline pilot that had a contract to work in Saudi Arabia. Apparently when you sign a contract to work there you must fulfill it, or go to jail. Well he had his fill of Saudi Arabia and decided to leave, escape is a better word. So he got reservations on 3 departing airlines that were outgoing at about the same time. Of course he knew his chances were pretty good that he would be arrested if he reserved only one flight, so he jumped on the 3rd one he had reservations on and “escaped”.

Perhaps your post has been mis-interpreted, but it seems you have no problem with central banks stealing from most of us common folk with their counterfeit funny fiat monopoly “money”. If your age is to be believed you were born in 1953. You were not even 20 when Nixon closed the “gold window”. Since then every vestige of Constitutional money has disappeared.
Some of us, and a growing number, aren’t interested in the intricacies of how to “game” the system. We know that it’s an unfair fight and we will lose. We just want to see the manipulation killed, DEAD. The way to bring that about is to continually demand Honest Money. The alternative is the death of the nation, and democracies worldwide, for that matter.

As far as your “headaches” are concerned, millions are having migraines over current money issues that would make yours seem like a minor hangover.
It would seem by the ratings that the funny counterfeit fiat monopoly money crowd was angered. Or was it just that those who trade in sympathy with them don’t wish any opposition to their profit potential? Yes. Selfishness will, in the short term, increase the jingle in your pockets. Long term? Not so much.
Questions are simply rhetorical. No response needed.
