Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Dear Federal Reserve Bureaucrat,

I first heard about the Fed monitoring the internet for malcontents from Adrienne, but I found this most hilarious piece from The Silver Circle Underground via the Humble Liberatarian. It's addressed to the newly hired monitors of "fed talk" on the internet and gives them some pointers:

I’m sure if you’ve done any work at all (look who I’m talking to) you’re reading a lot of bloggers that are angry about this social media monitoring thing. They’re probably calling you all kinds of nasty names, like “Big Brother,” or “Scumbag.” Well here at Silver Circle Underground we’re your friends. We understand that bureaucrats are far too incompetent to be perpetuating any kind of global fiat conspiracy. In fact, you’re probably completely baffled why the U.S. Dollar has lost 98% of it’s purchasing power since they started “stabilizing” it. We know that, like most bureaucrats, you are decades behind the rest of the population. It’s cute really. The Federal Reserve reading Facebook and Twitter. So keep reading. Maybe you’ll learn something about your new employer.

 Read the whole thing.
