Went to the credit union for cash today and the first teller was out of $100s and could only give me $50s. Wednesday morning at 11am and out of $100 ?????

Try cashing a USPS Money Order at the PO. Near impossible over $200-$300.

Been going on for a long time. When cash is gone and all is digital then the Government and Businesses can control your access to purchases and to essentially survive and pay for food, necessities, household bills, etc. It's all about total control over the populace. Become an enemy of the state and they will cut off access to your funds.

Bernard Von NotHaus had a great idea way before his time but the PTB shut him down.

DDG (DuckDuckGo) > Liberty Dollar Bernard Von NotHaus

ETA: we as a people have always had the right to use what ever we choose as a medium of exchange, this is what Mr Von NotHous did but for some reason they still convicted him.

Corrupt courts is my guess!!

The armored truck might not have shown up yet with their daily delivery. If it's not a large branch, they just might not have had much on hand to begin with.

Plus if that teller's draw was out of $100's, it's a big production to get more from the safe and into the drawer.

There is a huge cash economy out there yet. Fast food, illegal drug sales, flea markets, gambling, cigarettes from the res, etc.

Ebay and Internet sales via PayPal, have made a huge dent in cash sales; same with grocery food stores everyday.

There's also TSA/ Customs. I don't care who you are , unless you're caught with drugs and cash together it's you're money. TSA is worse than the Mafia in my opinion. When i travel with money across country now, especially the southern Constitution Free Zone, i divide up my cash, though I'm sure the check point dogs could find it. Just waiting for the question to arise, "are you carrying cash in excess of $500 ???..."

Yep, control cash and they have you. Those folks would have been better off not doing cash for a bank transfer because the government loves to seize it. I get cash out and I keep the bank slip to show its mine.

I tend to be able to read the articles with comprehensive ability to know when they are saying something real. I don't post the ones that say "this may happen", I post ones that say it is or has happened.

I quit talking to RJ a long time ago so no I don't bash him.

They figured out that your phone works better than a chip. Not only do they track you with it but they hear all you say and everyone you talk to. RFID is old tech that they put into the credit cards.

Understood, but I'm sure there is chip tech available now that could be used for absolutely everything and digital storage is cheap.

Combination of Fitbit, smart phone, GPS, bar code, PIV chip, USB drive, credit card...all in one. Permanently tied into the cloud, from birth.

We know it's coming and people are lining up in droves to be a part of it.
*Google Fiber* cities, for example.
