    I thought i was so smart. When this all started i topped up my gas tank, stocked up on all my supplies,
    went to the bank and took out a large wad of cash. Now i am stuck with the cash, nobody will take it . just about all places want to be paid by a card of some sort. anyway it won't go bad,who know is the sh*t goes really bad cash is king.

    Pulled out our savings but left the checking account open, with direct deposits. That covers all our monthly expenditures but we still a have cash if the internet goes down (no banking or charge card use).

    Yeah, well. Who would have thought? I certainly didn't - not that I've got any money to pull out anyway. But still.

    We took out some cash just to be safe. We haven't had to use it, but I surely haven't heard of anybody not taking it. It is still the coin of the realm. That hasn't changed.

    Money in the form of silver would be a safer medium. Silver kills viruses and bacteria simply by contact. Viruses have no problem staying alive on paper dollars for the duration of however long they can live outside a living being. Viruses on silver currency have a marked tendency to die.

    Silver won't protect you if someone just wiped their nose then handed you a coin with their snotty wet fingers. Silver isn't radioactive, after all. Hygiene is king.

    I doubt VERY seriously that colloidal silver will prevent or save people from the Covid-19 virus.

    Its important to have some in your kit that's for certain. Nows not the time to be using it though. Once plastic crashes there'll only be a brief time that its useable because it will loose its value faster than a falling rock. Maybe … just maybe … TP is the new gold standard :).

    Over here, where I am at least, you can't use cash for hygiene reasons. You can only use Paypass or whatever it's called. Some shops even have cling film over the EFTPOS machine, though I have no idea what that's supposed to achieve. I pictured the woman from the shop taking off the cling film and getting the virus all over her hands in the process ... would have thought it would be easier to just wipe down the EFTPOS machine with some antibacterial wipes myself.

    Go to a store's customer service desk and put some on a pre-paid debt card. There you go.

    Speaking of banks. I wanted to get some 50 cent pieces. I called two banks and neither had any. The hell kind of banks don't have 50 cent pieces? I remember back in the 90s and before all banks had those plus dollar pieces. Unreal!

    I wonder if they did have them but are now starting to restrict cash and coin to inadvertently encourage people to use Paypass? It will be interesting to see what changes ensue as this virus spreads more.

    It is called "Herding."

    This has been the NWO plan for many many years now.

    Someone or some group out here in their quest for more power and control over people...need to know more about what you are doing...what you are thinking...believing, and as evidenced by and on what you are spending your monies.

    Your phones tell on you...particularly if they have GPS. Same with texting....how many people charge on their credit card using their phones..???

    Your cars tell on you....now too.

    And your credit and debit cards too.

    A checking account will also but it takes longer to get the data than a credit or debit card as the checks need to clear....though this too is faster than in the olde days.

    Combining all this information gives a pretty good profile on who and what you are....how you think...what you value and for the astute..how you can be controlled and properly herded.....by race..by sex...by sexuality, sexual orientation....by economic status..by shame and or guilt …..and or any other index they can manage....in particular nearing election time.

    Do not think for one minute that people are not analyzing this data in order to herd a whole populace...socially and politically. There are times when you can see them coming with predictability.


    The point is....that people need to be more and more herded now days...and this is done by knowing what you are doing or not doing in a cashless society.


    This in particular with this lockdown going on. Understand now???

    Not sure what some of you are thinking. They are not really talking about this being over soon...but going on and on and on.

    Again ...the problem historically is that when governments working for and through proxy leadership....for the real rulers....the emergencies are over...they are very reluctant to give up these powers back to the people and not herd them again....


    If you think this is a joke....look at the number of people around you ...whom when asked a question requiring deep thought.....quote a movie or television program they have watched..


    They have someone else's thoughts...emotions, ideas....and the most strange thing to me is that many of these people are also voters...

    Whos vote are they really casting???? Are they herded without their being aware of it????

    A Cashless society is going to be a herded society...by intent..by a plan.

    Remember this stuff about dumbing people down.

    What was that fellows book so many years ago...."Brave New World...or was it 1984??"

    randyt - hahahahaha!

    In this particular instance, I don't think it runs that deep. I do think it's primarily because of the virus. I say primarily because I'm quite sure it will work in favour of what the grovelment would like, sort of a bonus for them.

    I don't believe it's going to be over any time soon. Based on the scenario of the Spanish Flu, I'd say we're in for the long haul, due to the rate of spread and the lack of the western world in dealing with social distancing, isolation, mask wearing etc. Plus air travel. If China had taken the reins straightaway, it may have been a bit different. But seriously, how is it not going to spread when borders are left open, planes flying backwards and forwards.

    It has also now become apparent that people can be reinfected. So ... the possibilities are endless ...

    If banks in Nevada ever stop handling half-dollars, then the apocalypse has indeed dawned.

    What the Leftists simply can't get through their head is that governments can go broke no matter how large they are.

    If the anti-military Leftists attempt to use the military to clamp down on Americans that believe in the U.S. Constitution, then they may get to experience the concept of "military might" for themselves. I see the military taking over power in the USA. The true leadership of the military's combat forces have ZERO respect for the Leftist elitists, ZERO.

    Whoever owns the guns makes the rules.

    The major cities of the world are going to crumble. If it isn't this mini-plague, then it will happen after the next real plague, or world economic collapse, or the oceans jostling, or or or . The dominoes are going to fall. The lemmings are going to die.

    But gosh, so much gloom and doom! We should put on a happy face. :D

    Do they use coins, or tokens nowadays? I could be wrong but I thought over here you buy tokens. Mind you, the last time I played the pokies was probably about 30 odd years ago, so I really have no idea ...

      I'm out'a the loop on such knowledge. My dad, he ran gambling machines. My dad was a god with the pool cue. He frequented the card games. One place was near a good-sized river. There were men who ended up in that river. When a lad, I counted American currency to the tune of tons and I was quick with the coin wrappers. My father's older brother could wrap coins so quickly that I'd just stand and stare at him. His hands were coin machines. Even after Dad got a coin-counting machine, one still had to crimp the ends of the coin rolls. We'd fill Tampa Nugget cigar boxes with rolled coins. A stack of cigar boxes of wrapped coins is heavy for a 13 yr old! During the 1960's counting coins, I developed a keen eye for the 90% silver coins (1964 and before). My dad taught me to gamble so I wouldn't gamble. It worked.

    I am not sure I remember which state it was , but it was reported today on radio news a bank as they put it has just " shuttered its doors "due to virus related issues . It was a bank on the eastern side of the U.S. .This could have been irresponsible and fake reporting but reporting it was .

    At the casinos I go to here in Blackhawk, Colorado, you can insert cash into the machine and your earnings come out as a piece of paper with a bar code or what ever. That piece of paper can be inserted into the slot machine to play more or put into the cash out machine to get your cash. I'm sure this is the way it is in Vegas as well. But the adjacent town to Blackhawk called Central City has some older casinos that use token coins. I like the slips of paper since they are easier to carry around. But the whole idea behind tokens and paper slips is to make you feel like you don't have real cash on hand. As soon as I win money I cash the slip out and put the earnings in my left pocket and play with my money in my right pocket.

    Tip # 321: Don't play a slot machine longer than seven times. If it doesn't pay out after that move on.
