A recent banking experience
A close friend sent this to me today, asking if I have noticed any similar behavior in the banks in my neck of the woods. I am wondering if any Avalonians have had this experience yet.....
"That lady that I sent the letter to, I stopped by to say hello to. She was upset, because the system she is involved in ripped her off fifty dollars. So I listened to her rant of how she was going to get her fifty bucks back. I wanted to say don't you realize how many tens of thousand of dollars Qe3 is going to personally cost you, and why arenít you ranting and doing something about that. But I didn't. Americans are trained to go after the small and insignificant, not what is actually hurting their lives in the larger picture.
But today something else happened, an interesting experience to take note of considering what is happening in Italy, and Sweden. Anyway, we went to collect money owed. Even though cash was requested, a check was offered. The offered check was refused, so we went to the bank with the person, a friend, so she could withdraw what was needed to pay the cash owed as previously agreed to.
When the individual entered their bank, the person was just about accosted, as a gentleman zoomed up to her as soon as she entered, asking what business she was there for. When she answered she was there to withdraw some cash. The bank person told her she had better options than withdrawing cash from her account. He strongly suggested that she should do online banking, and transfer the funds from her account to the account to which she owed the money to. He was persistent, but she withdrew the cash anyways. I am wondering how much longer she will have that choice.
I am glad it happened to her, as she was shocked by the experience, and always just minimized the changes happening in the system, never paying attention to the changing times of incrementally controlling more and more of the tracking of all financial transactions, no matter how small. She was always more satisfied with the convenience of electronic banking without ever thinking of eventually not having the choice of using cash or not, nor the crushing implications of what a cashless society would mean to her freedom, her privacy, her health, or her choices in making decisions for her own best interest.
It was fairly recent when we could go to a bank and get an over the counter credit card. You gave the bank a thousand dollars, and they gave you a credit card with a thousand dollars on it to use as one would use any other credit card. Now, some banks just don't do it any more. Another bank said, that to get one of those cards now, as mandated by the federal government, one needs to produce a social security number, identification, proving residential address, and then they do a background check to see if it matches up with the data bases.
So the masses are being overtly tracked. And soon cash will be outlawed. And anyone not in the system will not only have restricted travel, but essentially will not be able to purchase anything, not even food or medicine, all in the name of preventing terrorism, but of course, that is all just a ruse like the war on drugs.
When there is a siege, all those outside of the castle simply has to do to capture those inside the castle is to prevent goods entering the castle, because eventually those in the castle will run out of supplies and die from starvation or dehydration, no bloodshed necessary.
I have watched as totalitarism in America has incrementally advanced over the years. The difference between ten years ago, and today, is that it's right in our face, and no longer at arms length at some distant future confrontation. Unbelievably ignorant and apathetic Americans, over the years, were silent, uninterested witnesses to the incrementally stripping away of all the protection we had against bad government that was provided by the Constitution and the founders of America. And as I just heard on an interview today, all Americans are now boarding a train for Auschwitz. And like the Jews on those trains......................no one is speaking up.
May Freedom Ring, and may Americans open their ears, eyes, and hearts to it before they willing are sheparded into the ovens thinking this could never happen in America, and surely someone will do something about it. Obama hasn't done anything to prevent this Cashless society. Romney won't. So only The People are left to do something about it. Do you think they will? I think I can already smell the burning flesh.
Blessing to your freedom. May you always have choices to do what is in your best interest to do."............
Any other experiences like this?
