A somewhat different view of the Fed and it's relationship to government.

There are a lot of good folk out there who think civilization is being run--badly--by the Bilderbergers and their friends.
They point to such sources as G. Edward Griffin's The Creature From Jekyll Island which documents how the Federal Reserve Bank was set up a century ago, and conclude that since the Fed holds the purse strings, it governs the government; that hence, we are all at the mercy of a small group of sinister bankers who become fabulously wealthy on the backs of our labor. They hold that whereas supposedly The People own and operate the government (ha!), its real owner is the Trilateral Commission or Council on Foreign Relations, the Illuminati, or merely the Fed; the names change, but the handful of people in charge do not. Some extremists associate the bankers with Jewry and spew anti-Semitism from every pore. Allegedly, the bankers pick Presidents and grant money to governments provided their will is followed in the policies being purchased. Instead of the Fed being the tail of the dog of government, supposedly it is really the dog itself, and the government the tail and We the People are merely those who get whacked when the tail is wagged. Roughly, that's the world according to the patriots--who are, I repeat, mostly fine people whose courage in facing down government bureau-rats puts most of us to shame.
Are they right, in their view of canine anatomy?
