The American Federal Reserve has a Facebook page! The purpose of the page, I assume, is to spread Federal Reserve propaganda and to try to bolster their image. Thankfully it hasn’t worked.
Most of the user responses are filled with sass and ridicule.
The pages description actually includes a disclaimer explaining when and why they will delete users comments.
Here are some of my favorite user comments from that page. These were all taken from a post about the Federal Open Market Committee.
|The Federal Reserve is actually a private organization, unlike Canada where it is public.|
|This is why inflation is evil. It robs people of their money without them even realizing it.|
|Thomas Jefferson is my favorite President.|
|Inflation… you can find out more about its affects here.|
|That’s what I thought after reading the comments.|
