Actually, interestingly enough. American railroads (such as they are) are
looking into using UAV's to survey the tracks for problems. Don't know how
far along they've gone in this regard but it would be interesting to see
what looks like a model flying the route.

I would also think helicopters would probally be most used.

Manned choppers are expensive! There is already a UAV originally intended
to aid fishing boats (big ones) at finding the big schools of fish. It's
being pushed for all manner of survey type jobs with the Forest service and
the like. It looks like a big flying wing.

The Federal Reserve System is most certainly the central bank of the United
States as much as the Bank of England is the central bank of Great Britain.
Pay a little less attention to the conspiracy websites and check with United
States Code and see who owns the Federal Reserve, who appoints the Officers
and what their status is.

To get beyond the myths, to be members of the Federal Reserve commercial
banks are required to invest in the District Banks. Check who appoints the
directors and board members. Most importantly, check who appoints the
Chairman of the Federal Reserve.

Additionally, the Federal Reserve most certainly has reserves. Just step
right up to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and buy some gold. Since
over half the world's supply of gold is held at FRBNY and Fort Knox, there
are reserves.

Social credits, eh? Let's see... He recommends a bookkeeping system that
tracks work units, a central repository for those work units where you can
'barter' work units for those things you need.

Hmmmmm..... Sounds just like a monetary system to me. Money is just a
convenient, standardized counting system for work units that you can trade
for other person's work units in the form of goods or services.

The Federal Reserve CORPORATION is a privately owned enterprise- that
is a fact that even the Fed Reserve Corp will tell you:

http://www.ny.frb.org/aboutthefed/faq.html#link28


So, who owns the Fed? Although it is set up like a private corporation
and member banks hold its stock, the Fed owes its existence to an act
of Congress and has a mandate to serve the public. Therefore, the most
accurate answer MAY be that the Fed is "owned" by the citizens of the
United States.


`emphesis is my own

[this is a chickenpoop answer, but I am sure that you get the gist-
registered as a privately held corporation, an act of congress granted
this private corp the exclusive priveledge to issue currency in the
United States, with the exception of coinage, which remains the only
form of 'lawfull money of the United States of America.']


Does the New York Fed sell gold coins?
No, Federal Reserve Banks do not sell or distribute coins or paper
currency directly to the public. To purchase commemorative gold coins,
call (800) USA-MINT or visit the U.S. Mint's website at
www.usmint.gov.



Is U.S. currency still backed by gold?
No. When the United States stopped selling gold to foreign official
holders of dollars at the rate of $35 an ounce in 1971, it brought the
gold exchange standard to an end. In 1973, the United States
officially ended its adherence to the gold standard. Many other
industrialized nations also switched from a system of fixed exchange
rates to a system of floating rates. In August 1974, President Ford
repealed the prohibition on the public's owning gold or engaging in
gold transactions. Today, no country bans private ownership of gold.

The US Congress rubber stamps the nominees for directors presented by
the board. They have never gone against the bank. Follow the
money/stock from the board of governers to the shareholders of member
banks, and it flows to the Bank for International Settlements. You
can follow Greenspan to the BIS as he reports there monthly.

The G8, and the UN have created laws in the US through the Fed
Reserve, who has a near perfect record of sponsoring legislation.

Although I do not endorse the Social Credit sytem, it is an attempt to
avoid a monetary system that progressively devalues itself by its
mechanics. It is a system intended to prevent the ability to
precicely engineer economies.

That is the intent. When you have to pay the equivelent of the amount
of money in existance every twenty years or so in interest, it ceases
to be a fixed medium of exchange.
