    The Fed is the god that failed. They system is 100% rigged, incapable of economic growth of any significance.

    Do you even have the slightest idea what the Fed does?

    Only an "audit" could possibly reveal the intricate secrets of the secretive cult that is the Fed.

    It would be inherently pointless to audit a God. They are infallible, so you'd be wasting your time.

    Gods are infallible only to worshipers. To others they are frauds.

    Funny, but for all time before 1913 the world managed without the Fed. Before that major banks like "the House of Morgan" managed things and probably did so with more honesty and lack of politics than has the FED.

    No, a God is per definition (certainly of the Abrahamic God) infallible. Whether you believe in him or not.

    Sort of like a chair. Even though you might think it's a bridge to live under, it remains a thing to sit on.

    Oh, I thought bridges were to sit on, you know, when you"re looking at a river.

    For all time before the first hospital was built the world "managed" as well. Better to demolish all of them to be sure.

    Not to mention the internet.


    In fact, I believe the FED managed without computers for quite some time, so maybe we should tell them to stop using computers. That will put a stop to all the problems.

    You could put them in the hold of a giant container ship and fill it with rich people and their money and let them fight it out.....

    Juno would pass the audit perfectly.

    Jupiter would say "talk to my wife"

    Mercury and Vulcan would probably pass.

    Mars would kill the auditor

    Venus would get past the audit by seducing the auditor.

    Hades owns all the gold under the Earth. I wonder how that would get audited.
