Not that I needed another reason to "quit"

"Fed Refuses to Disclose Recipients of $2 Trillion in Lending"

The Federal Reserve refused a request by Bloomberg News to disclose the recipients of more than $2 trillion of emergency loans from U.S. taxpayers and the assets the central bank is accepting as collateral.
...the Fed said the U.S. is facing “an unprecedented crisis” when the “loss in confidence in and between financial institutions can occur with lightning speed and devastating effects.”
“Notwithstanding calls for enhanced transparency, the Board must protect against the substantial, multiple harms that might result from disclosure,” Jennifer J. Johnson, the secretary for the Fed’s Board of Governors, said in a letter e-mailed to Bloomberg News.

“In its considered judgment and in view of current circumstances, it would be a dangerous step to release this otherwise confidential information,” she wrote.

There's more at the link. Whutcha might wanna do is memorize or somehow preserve them there august pronouncements made by these arrogant tubs of guts for those times when somebody (the I.R.A.?) comes around and tellsya ya' gotta tell 'em where all your money came from and whutcha spent it on.
Think I'll draft another letter to my personal U.S. Represen..., uh, my local buttfuckboy, using some of those same phrases above.
Let's see...I might begin the letter by addressing him as
"Dear Semen-Splattered Tool of the Fascist State:
Are you going to let them get away with this?
Oh, that's right; of course you are. You're afraid of these fuckers, aren't you?
Well if you don't get 'em to cough up the info Bloomberg demands, I am going to tell everyone I know that you are the biggest chickenshit human being that ever lived..."

Then I might start gettin' ugly.
