Whatever the reason, in total, the Federal Reserve has issued (since the inception of the Federal Reserve when it was tragically born alive in 1913, spewing as it did out of the very cesspool of hell), $2.165 trillion in credit to the banks, of which (and I warn you to sit down and hold onto something before proceeding), a whopping $1.293 trillion appeared in the last 12 months! Gaaahhh! Twelve Freaking Months (TFM)! We are so doomed by the idiots in charge! Hahaha!
