  • Federal Reserve Octopus Vintage Tri-Blend T-Shirt

    The original cartoon of this image was made in 1912 by a fella named Cozier, who, among other things like running an innovative cement company, wrote a book warning everyone about a particularly pernicious banking scheme that the Republican party was attempting to push through Congress.

    The Federal Reserve, a cartel of big banks, has been pulling the strings of our economy since its sneaky inception in 1913. It all started when Senator Nelson Aldrich, a puppet of the Rockefeller clan, tried to push through Congress a banking scheme called the "Aldrich Plan" back in 1912. This plan aimed to create a National Reserve Association, putting immense power in the hands of the banking elite.

    Thanks to opposition from rural and western states, who saw through this power grab, the Aldrich Plan didn't make it through Congress. But don't think the banking overlords gave up that easily! They just rebranded it as the Federal Reserve Act, which passed in 1913 while most of Congress was away on Christmas vacation. Talk about a holiday surprise!

    The Federal Reserve Act, though slightly tweaked to appease progressives, kept the financial oligarchy intact. Fast forward to today, and we see the Federal Reserve's tentacles reaching into every corner of our economy. This private organization, which isn't truly federal at all, holds enormous influence over our money supply and economic policy.

    But let's not forget the infamous Jekyll Island meeting in 1910, where powerful financiers and bankers came together in secret to draft the plan for a central bank. They knew the public wouldn't trust a system crafted by fat cats, so they concocted a cover story about a duck hunting trip. How quaint!

    Since its inception, the Federal Reserve has been subject to criticism for being controlled by private interests and concentrating power in the hands of the few. While its proponents may argue that it stabilizes the economy and prevents financial crises, it's hard to ignore the history of the Fed's shadowy origins.

    So next time you hear about the Federal Reserve, remember the tale of the Aldrich Plan, the Jekyll Island meeting, and how a small group of powerful individuals shaped our nation's financial destiny behind closed doors. It's enough to make you quack with frustration!
