Just reminded of it's hard getting here today it was a New York Federal Reserve Bank now Mike that's onto a lot of you're like oh lord it's a -- when money is going after money.
Bob -- -- Federal Reserve has a number regional banks around the country and your Federal Reserve by the way it was the former home by the now Treasury Secretary.
Tim Geithner he was in New York -- Federal Reserve.
President and that is a very influential bank if you -- -- -- for example.
You you would affect a network.
Cost of trading that goes on.
The -- to support for the financial system itself and that's the most crucial we Arabs of the various Federal Reserve banks across the country.
You can imagine how disruptive something like that.
Would be to our financial system.
The Federal Reserve -- you know these days is under enormous criticism for what -- these are quantitative easing is if you've heard.
Orchestrated through these member banks that that forcibly keep interest rates down.
It is conceivable that had an attack like there's been success is that -- that would of that.
The very least disrupted -- that that process.
But I'm I'm on -- moving a little bit -- from this the bigger issue.
Is the target the locale capitalism.
To Ben Stein on that then what -- -- And correctly that terrorism correctly figured out the lower Manhattan is the nerve center of money making an entire western world.
They hate the -- money making process as those -- with the power it gives us the Barrett duke as they see and dominate them are the very least threaten them.
-- associated with a very un Islamic way of thinking.
They associated with.
The general conspiracy that they see enveloping the world but of course they're they're they're completely mistaken.
And that -- they and their god forbid blown up the New York Federal Reserve are caused terrible damage to it.
It wouldn't it would it would cause panic and a god terrible terrible terrible loss of life that can be unspeakable but it would not have the effect of the finances as the world.
For more than a few hours or maybe a day and most.
But but there's there's there's something about capitalism that infuriates people -- I think it basically goes back to -- You know its existing in the 93.
Target attack of the World Trade Center certainly in the 9/11 to 2001.
-- attack on the World Trade Center and elsewhere it was no accident among those attack sites.
Certainly the world trade senator certainly our finance community summit and laden himself as you.
Have reported then bragged about -- up financially that would hit and did -- the United States.
But again and again and again this is the eighteenth such time and I guess it according to bill -- we've had these sort of follow up -- these guys.
Have to succeed only once no matter how many times we we stopped and they have but succeed once.
Well they did -- Syrian.
-- -- -- god success once in a spectacularly unbelievably horrible gruesome way.
So -- they obviously think they can do it again.
But I think I wanna go back to what you're saying before -- on personal I'm overwhelmed that you remember that I talked about Obama bragging about how much who's gonna cause to fight the war on terror that's.
Amazing you remember that.
But -- that this association.
In the minds of the terrorist a Monday and concentrate some money as as somehow being their enemy.
It is is so sick and and yet it is so reminiscent of what the Communist law.
What the Nazis thought there that the concentration of money where it would today I assume also think is Jewish money of course it.
-- -- -- all the taxpayers money held together with what they assume is this constant the money is no harm them it is is really sick and this is somebody.
Terribly ill about it and -- it's -- an idea that's.
Possibilities to -- -- bad.
You know that's very little -- -- when -- I noticed maybe it's a sign of the times then and is the market reaction.
Because the markets got wind of this.
-- and enough time to react before closing.
And they didn't it was like a non plus reaction now because it -- later corporate -- has no idea another new.
With the stream but normally in any -- -- so I guess what I'm saying is any sort of moment out of terrorism it.
Right after 9/11 it is the width of that would have been unsettling is it that we're used to this -- properly -- this whether we were properly frame at the FBI or whoever was.
Opt it and there and people know that it's not going to be a big affect -- any effect whatsoever on corporate profits but I think blue line if I may respectfully say -- Go back again to this idea.
That all over the world are these people and they're saying.
What the heck is that about the United States of America makes United States of America is a powerful and makes him such an unsettling.
And relentless enemy and they come back again and again this idea of money and money being traveled to attract -- -- has -- whether exchange is somehow in their confused minds.
That -- makes us some power holds a games -- it's really.
Our idea our appreciation human nature and the dignity of the individual that they could love all the Federal Reserve banks in the what I program -- they don't and then they've done -- blows.
But the idea of America which is the idea the dignity of the individual that's what's their real enemy it's not money it's the idea of the dignity of the individual that is going to be.
-- you -- citizen that I -- its offices near bear Michael Bloomberg.
On the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks visit here everything here will be a target again he's a -- it's never not -- target.
-- because because.
There's -- -- where there's so much money here but the real genius of America is in every American home and every American businesses in America every American farm an oil well.
It is the dignity of the individual and the that terrorists are never gonna shut that down -- -- will put.
