Plus, the courts aren't benefiting at all from the massive, hidden tax imposed by the fed's interest rate manipulation. Maybe at some point, there will be a refocus on basic government instead of running the whole country for the banks.

I think the story left off an important modifier in the second paragraph. If the courts really only got $6.97 that's not even enough to spring for a large fancy coffee.

The money for the one fancy donut has been sequestered.

Admittedly, $7 will buy a lot of the coffee I usually drink, but it has been uncharitably described as a combination of battery acid and mud. It does have a very high caffeine content though.
