"Governments decend to the level of a mere corporation,
and take on the characteristics of a mere private
citizen ... where private corporate commercial paper [Federal
Reserve notes] and securities [checks] is concerned ...
For the purposes of suit, such corporations and individuals
are regarded as entities entirely separate from government.
