A FACT in this article usually has the word "Buck" involved.
A F ACT in this article usually has the music "Buck-a cha-buck bow wow!" involved.

False. While not a government entity in and of itself the Federal Reserve System is overseen by a Board of Governors who are directly appointed by the President. I think that hardly qualifies as having "nothing to do" with the Federal Government.

Quote:
The Federal Reserve is privately owned by bankers.
Owned yes, but owned by and controlled by aren't the same thing. The public owns the National Parks for instance, but the government controls them. Difference.

Quote:
The US Dollar is continuing to devalue
That's vague. On what kind of time line are we discussing here? Weeks, months, years, decades? Are talking inflation or value?

Quote:
The US Dollar and other Notes used to be backed in Gold or silver
Yes and practically all industrialized nations have moved to a Fiat standard.

Quote:

So we're buildings more highways so people can go places. Well if that's not writing on the walls...

I guess the author doesn't have much experience of the EU.

Does the Fiat standard mean we can turn in our dollars for crappy Italian cars instead of gold?

So what? Is the Canadian-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named like Bloody Mary now where all you have to do is look in a mirror and say his name three times and he will appear?

Develop a common security strategy to further secure North America, focusing on:
Securing North America from external threats.
Preventing and responding to threats within North America.
Streamlining the secure and efficient movement of legitimate and low-risk traffic across shared borders
Streamlining is not exactly eliminating security.

And it was North American Community, not N.A.U.

But then I would favor anexation of the world by the U.S. and their admittance in the Union as states. If we're going to rule the world then the world should have representation in congress and be able to vote for president.

I was waiting for the OP to suggest that there is no gold in Fort Knox, or to say something about the Illuminati.
Our interstate system in the US was created in part to meet national defense concerns, so why shouldn't our concerns about defense argue for forward positions in Mexico and Canada? I am deeply concerned about Guatemalan imperialism and the greater threat of an alliance between Iceland and Greenland. F ACT

Edited to clarify, maybe.

Is there a code to the "FACT Fact F..a Ct" pattern? Maybe the author is desperately trying to tell us something, but can't do so overtly because the men in black are watching his e-mail. So he covers it up with silliness about the Federal Reserve system, but is really telling us about the secret government alliance with the reptilian aliens.

You just made my day by referencing that classic '60s sci-fi show, UFO!

Now, you so rock.
