I offer this link without comment. Should I feel the need to contribute my two cents I will do so later. I'll let you read the act so you can discuss this amongst yourselves.
An act for the sick and disable seamen.
Wow, when I read just a few sentences in I wondered how old this ruling was.
1798 places it in the John Adams administration. He also had the Alien and Seditions Act under his pin. That one, even today, still is contraversial. In 2002 I heard the Patriot Act mentioned with it in the same breath more than once.
The forerunner of our VA system?
Interesting that the excess was to be invested in stock... not sure the word had the same meaning as it does today, but nonetheless I'll be the first to ask the hairy-eye-balled-conspiracy question...
WHAT IF THIS IS ALL JUST A COVER FURTHER MANIPULATE THE STOCK MARKET?
Cato, an excellent find...truly intriguing! I interested to learn more about this. The PDF seems to indicate that the last related legislation was an act in 1803. I'm interested to know if/when this was repealed or if it was "overhauled" into the system that went into effect following the civil war, or what happened to it?
I honestly have no idea. It would be well worth looking into.
I received this link from a friend of a friend. I found a second and third copy of this act on other sites. I decided to post this one because I think it looks kinda cool/old school.
