I thought I would leave on a little dilemma the banks cannot argue with.
The Question is, can you make money from nothing?
Here’s a story ONLY……
One day I get a letter in the mail. It’s from the taxation office. They say I owe them $600 dollars, because I have not declared money that has been sitting in an account gaining interest. So I decide to not pay the $600 dollars, and contest the bill, saying that I should not have to pay them anything.
Court day arrived. The judge says, “On what grounds do you wish not to pay this fine?”
I say to the judge “because I did not earn the money, it came from nothing, and it was a gift from the bank for having an account with them. I earned the money I put into the account, but did not earn any money they put in their extra.”
The judge says “The law states you have to declare all earnings, even interest from a bank, as it is declared as earnings.”
So I asked, “The bank creates money from nothing, I mean all they do is print money out that is basically worthless plastic, which holds no value beside the plastic it was printed on. They turn numbers into plastic sheets. Therefore they make something from nothing? Is this allowed?”
Now here’s where it gets tricky for the judge.
The judged could answer as “this is correct” which allows for me to reply “Well then if a bank can make something from nothing, then I must be allowed to as well without it costing me a cent? Because it is not costing the bank anything to change numbers on a computer. Therefore I earned something from nothing as well. And should not have to pay my $600 dollars as it was not earned and was given as a gift, for putting my money into their account, which I might add, they make a lot more interest off my money alone?
Judge has no other option to close the case, and no fine will be charged ever again on anyone’s money, if it was not earned, and given to a person as a gift for being with that bank.
But the Judge could also answer as “But it against the law to not pay a fine to the taxation department, regardless of whether the money comes from nothing, and was a gift.”
So I say, so it’s okay for a bank to make something from nothing, but not okay for the average person like you and me.
The judge replies “I know it does not sound fair, but the law is the law. You owe the taxation department $600 dollars.”
So I say “okay, that’s fair enough then. So I will pay the $600 dollars, but I also wish to sue the bank, for all the money I have ever paid on interest on any loan I have ever made with all my banks. Because Now I know it’s against the law to make something from nothing. And the banks do this; therefore they have broken their own law. So I will sue them for $6000 dollars for all interest paid on my loans, thank you”
And now, all of you can take that to the bank. Stealing is an offence. It works both ways, not just one.
