From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 [gcide]:

R \R\ ([aum]r). R, the eighteenth letter of the English alphabet, is a vocal consonant. It is sometimes called a semivowel, and a liquid. See Guide to Pronunciation, [sect][sect] 178, 179, and 250-254. "R is the dog's letter and hurreth in the sound." --B. Jonson.

Note: In words derived from the Greek language the letter h is generally written after r to represent the aspirated sound of the Greek "r, but does not affect the pronunciation of the English word, as rhapsody, rhetoric. The English letter derives its form from the Greek through the Latin, the Greek letter being derived from the Ph[oe]nician, which, it is believed, is ultimately of Egyptian origin. Etymologically, R is most closely related to l, s, and n; as in bandore, mandole; purple, L. purpura; E. chapter, F. chapitre, L. capitulum; E. was, were; hare, G. hase; E. order, F. ordre, L. ordo, ordinis; E. coffer, coffin.

I don't want Uncle Sam having my SIM Card private keys.

My banking ideas may have caught the attention of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. I like my banking to be FREE and REAL TIME and PRIVATE. I have a proposal for how the central bank could more effectively issue credit directly to the consumers through a totally automated PRIVATE NONPROFIT. We don't need for-profit banks to administer our central bank credit. We can automate that task completely. Say, "Thank you" to the scientific community. We don't need to create new money as debt. That model was corrupt and inefficient. It was a system of slavery. Consumers were owned outright by the central banks. They called it "Sovereign Debt." Have you ever heard of fractional reserve banking? Slavery by con men. That's not what we're all about around here. We are, fundamentally, advanced technologists. We can design happier societies than that. That system sucked for the average citizens. Our systems work without the intentional generation of debt as a revenue model. We are all about a smarter banking system that serves the PUBLIC INTEREST better than those financed with debt.
