Drove to a restaurant today with my wife and was first of all creeped out to find that they knew my name from my phone number, which I had to give to get on the wait list. They said they use a centralized database of many restaurants for that.

They have a window where you can order a beer while you are waiting. So I ordered a beer and they refused to take cash.

OK, I wanted the beer, so I paid with a credit card. Then the total had an extra $1.50 on it. I asked about that and was told that I added a tip. I specifically did not add a tip because I was pissed that they don't take cash.

I got the manager and made him remove the tip.

We are rapidly approaching the CCP utopia of complete tracking of all citizens at all times.

Lesson: call ahead and make sure a restaurant will take cash. If they will not, don't go there.

Dennis: What I object to is you automatically treatin' me like an inferior.
Arthur: Well, I am king.
Dennis: Oh, king, eh? Very nice. And how'd you get that, then? By exploiting the workers! By hanging on to outdated imperialist dogma which perpetuates the economic and social differences in our society! If there's ever going to be any progress--
Dennis: We're an anarcho-syndicalist commune. We take it in turns to act as sort-of-executive officer for the week--
Arthur: Yes.
Dennis: But all the decisions of that officer have to be ratified at a special biweekly meeting--
Arthur: Yes, I see...

Does it have to be contiguous, or we are open to the idea of anclaves? If we are, I can chip in with some land in Scotland (it came with a bottle of scotch I've got for Xmas). It's not much, but then Kenigsberg is even more tiny compared to the rest of the CCCP.

I live this stuff in real life, I don't just philosophize about it from behind a screen. And I read books about it, I don't just make shit up in my head.


I have no intention of doxing myself. One of my sources died last year that was a long time family friend. $600M market cap bank he bought half the shares plus during the housing bust. He was the majority share holder in a decent sized bank. Another is a former high school classmate that got busted slowly stealing $150k cash from the bank she worked at. That was in 2005. It wasn't cameras. They tracked the cash. I'm also not searching about tracking/hiding cash to prove a point on the internet for Christ sake.

Listen I get you guys don't like anecdotal evidence, but I'm not searching out links on it besides the ones below to prove my point that cash isn't your friend necessarily. These are people I personally know that got caught stealing cash and or handled hundreds of millions of it annually. They're not selling a BS book with clickbait titles to scare people. They know cash first hand more than anyone on this forum.

Maybe check out this link: https://www.cashseizurelaw.com/why-the-cops-can-seize-your-cash-and-often-keep-it/
Cops ain't taking my credit card. And if they do I can lock it immediately and it would be a crime for them to use it and I can dispute it if they do. I don't gamble but the example of a good night at a casino could easily get confiscated for a tail light being out. Any cash really could be confiscated. I don't like those odds. That includes your home.

I don't do anything illegal so I don't give a shit if they know I bought a case of beer to drink at home or a bikini for my wife. This idea that cash hides you is wrong. FDIC knows all your transactions with the bank as well so they know what needs to be insured. It's not just the $10k withdrawal trigger. That's for the FBI and the other 3 letter agencies.

Cash should only be held in a safe at your home, bolted to the floor. Preferably hidden. Use credit and if you need to deposit said cash to pay the bill just do that. You're at a far greater risk using cash if you're not doing anything illegal. So just use OPM and get a 3-6% return on your cash via points and pay off the CC monthly. It's better than a CD, your bank account or in a safe (unless you're uber wealthy)

What is not getting through is that tracking is much more advanced than you even know regardless of a digital currency. No point in putting a serial number on a bill, scan it incoming through a machine and not track it to make sure it's not a forfeit. Banks and merchants would never do that. Just like Casinos don't use facial recognition tech since the early 2000's. But hey, cash is king. Until a townie cop takes it because a K-9 smelled trace drug residue on bills given to you at Walmart.

I don't get this topic with you guys. I go to the source. Not written. Not online. PEOPLE that work in these realms that don't need to sell a book. We literally have a digital national currency. Does no one here not remember the 80's-90's?? I'd go to Ace Hardware with my dad and the old slider thingy for getting CC info. That's easily done now digitally at the bank with bills and when the armored truck drops it at the bank in cash. Those trucks go to multiple vendors and document everything. Same with the ATM. Self checkout. Fine it works at a flea market, or buying drugs, or tipping. But to trust the Federal government or bank with anything is insane or any merchant.

https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/us-law-enforcement-targets-fraud-facilitators-doubling-last-year-s-enforcement
Just another branch that can take your cash on a suspicion. You are guilty out of the gate with cash. You can't confiscate debt because it's not illegal to not pay it. It just destroys your credit and you can't borrow more. I lived this with short sale clients during the bust. They were all freaked out but most bought again in 3-7 years after dumping the debt. They lost $0 of cash.

Cash is a one and done transaction. Fine, go bitch on Yelp with bad service. The money is gone. I can get my "credit" back with a dispute with 2-3 mouse clicks. There are so many advantages. You WANT data to fuck with them to say it wasn't you if you are a criminal. Otherwise I can promise they can get video footage of everyone at that restaurant that paid cash that day, or gas station and plug it into a database because 98% of people need a photo ID to survive.

Again don't believe me. You guys don't know what you're talking about is all. Sorry I can't link it. There have been a couple psychos on this site that have caused problems in the past. I can give plenty of links of names and you could cross reference them. I prefer my privacy.

This is common. They had the serial numbers and tracked the serial numbers, and then correlated this to a location and used that to find a suspect. They knew the theft was going on, at the banks then correlated the cash coming in, and found the general location, and correlated that to an employee. They couldn't trace it to a specific person, they just used it to find a general location where the money was being spent, and find the likely locations that employee would be spending money.

What you saw was a sting operation, and a good one. It's unusual to see competence in the government for me. Good for them.

I have no idea what the correlation is with the first person. Last time I checked, shareholders aren't clocking in at the business they own shares in every day, rolling their sleeves and learning a trade. They're just investors.

On the other example, I already said they track bank thieves, so that's neither new, nor relevant. The other example, drug cartels. Now, not letting you weasle out of your exaggeration. Prove dollars I put into a self-checkout are tracked, or get the fuck off the pot.

When people sent money to the Canadian "freedom convoy" with gofundme, gofundme just kept the money. They didn't return the money and they didn't send it to the convoy and this was done with government approval.

Money is tracked from the word go: http://www.uspapermoney.info/general/number.html

Money is tracked at as many points as possible. This is just fact. Every serial number on a bill is in a database unless someone hoarded it from like the 50's. The first link is EASILY put into a bill scanner right next to the touch screen computer you're using, that's then linked back to a server. OCR tech is super easy to implement. That's what is on those scanners. Again, test your luck, but put in a fake bill. How do you think the machine knows it's fake? It's scanning the damn bill dude.

Technically it costs establishments MORE money to take cash between time, security and either running to the bank or using an armored truck service. Cash makes the costs of good rise. Loss of time. And is easy to lose. Cashless is coming in more places than you'll like. The cost in loss prevention with cash is insane. Customers AND employees.

Also I've told you I have a source. Cash is scanned every step of the way. I don't have to prove my source as I'd end up giving you and the entire internet my information basically. If you're looking to use stolen money then sure, waste time with a cashier. The bank owner I was talking about, and yes he owned the bank as a 50%+ shareholder. Was on the board. When you have $40M tied up in one entity, you tend to put a little work into it. Let me know if anyone on this forum has even $100k tied up in an individual stock let alone knows someone that owned a bank personally.

Doesn't matter either way. I'll take my 6% on average return on using the credit card, while you guys fiddle around with cash thinking you're hiding from the boogieman. Every swipe I make money and I pay it off. Or I have the option of not paying it off and taking a credit ding. Other little things like tipping. Cool, under tip because you only have a certain bill. Or over tip. Or make the person make change for you while every else then has to wait.

This comment might be personal, but it's apparent at this point that you're involved in illegal stuff. Cash is the worst thing to have and use. Did a dude do a line of blow with the bill in your pocket and you get hit by a drug dog? People have been arrested for drug residue on cash. Even if you don't get convicted good luck with those legal fees.... https://www.latimes.com/archives/la-xpm-1994-11-13-me-62172-story.html Cash is a liability on so many levels.

This link backs up my point, not yours. Recognizing denomination is not tracking. The rest of them offer no direct correlation between your unfounded opinion that supermarket payments are tracked. A money counter machine used by banks or law enforcement is not hidden inside an auto checkout.

I don't think it's personal. I do think it's telling of your world outlook. You accept the curtails on your freedom when it comes to the digital world because you don't have the knowledge, or drive to resist. You subscribe to the dictum "If you've done nothing wrong, you have nothing to hide." Despite the fact this saying was popularized under fascist regimes that routinely prosecuted regular people who had done nothing immoral.

And finally, you have the defeatist mentality of early conspiracy believers, who see the powers running things as god-like. They are anything but, and their system is falling down around their ears.

The most dangerous belief people like you hold is that law = morality. The worst atrocities in the world have been carried out under this belief.

Not if you're using OPM and don't have to pay it. Sure you might get cut off, but that's why you have a safe bolted to your floor with cash. You should NEVER use your own cash when purchasing. Only to pay off and that's if you want to or can.

I'll take my $8k tax free benefits every year by swiping a flipping card. Track me. Shut it down. I have back ups. I don't do anything illegal. Steal my credit card and phone. I'll have the card shut down in minutes and can get the charges overturned if they get that far in minutes. Once cash is gone, it's gone. I like my method. You don't have to. But I'm making anywhere from 4-6% interest on things I already need and pay it off monthly.

This is where you and I may differ. Not you specifically, but I have zero issue killing someone if they fuck with me. That includes authorities. You fuck with my life as it currently is, there's going to be a reaction. And no, not a direct threat at anyone and no one to date has actually fucked with me. Our back and forth is trivial and I'd think you'd agree.

On the Mountain View recent post I applaud them for stepping up and talking about their issue. I'll never be public like that. So in a way we're similar in that I do appreciate my privacy. If government comes down on me, some people aren't going to make it is all I'll say. But I'm not going to pretend hiding behind cash that they don't know what I'm doing. They do. So I'll make money off it. You do you, all I'm pointing out is there's an alternative that's not all big brother as portrayed many times on this site.

I think the important distinction here is passive versus active. Thanks to Snowden we know they are spying on us. But is anyone actively spying on you or me? Fuck no, we're nothing, not even blips on their radar. With Federal Debt notes the system it's even more passive. The mechanisms are in place, for sure, but in absence of a big crime, they aren't utilized, and cannot be searched like Prism. And are not tapped into every stream dollars are used for. In Arizona you can buy guns off resale sites from individuals. Swap meets, garage sales, purchases at a store where you don't use a loyalty card, and pay cash that goes into a register with everyone else's bills. Gift cards that require no personal info to make purchases with. If I'm wrong, why have the loyalty programs? Although even with those, you can usually give fake info.

WookieMan says

YES they are.

I'm in Silly Con Valley. Everything you speak on a phone, or email, or write in an SMS is recorded, and reviewed by some algorithm. Believe me. We can do this, and because we CAN do this, this is done.

You won't listen to us, you won't trust us, there's no magic in this, nothing imaginary about this. We can do this, so I guarantee the government does it.

Why do you think you have "free email"? How does it help a corporation for you to sign up for a "free email" - how do they make money from this? Take telegram, you're allowed to talk on that, but there are no advertisements - how do they make money? The point of all these systems is monitoring.

I used to wonder "how do they make money off from this?" - well, they sell information to the government intelligence agencies. The internet, a good portion of it, is a monitoring system and propaganda system.

If you're not paying for a service, the service is monitoring you - you are the product, you're being studied.

New York City to Track Personal Food Choices Using Credit Card Data
This is needed to fight climate change, NYC mayor says

Remember the crazy right-wing conspiracy theory alleging that our food purchases will be tracked to reduce our CO2 consumption?

That one is turning out to be true!

Yesterday, New York City announced its plan to track the “food choices” of New Yorkers using credit card data from individual store purchases. According to the mayor, tracking individual food choices is a step towards “reducing the CO2 output” of New Yorkers. ...

You would think such a plan would only be made after a conversation with New Yorkers, right? After all, the mayor of New York is supposed to serve New Yorkers, not the other way around.

However, the reality is that there was no consultation and no “conversation” because New York’s mayor Eric Adams is sure that people do not even want to have a “conversation” about interrogating their food choices. ...

Rather than framing this issue as a health matter, I urge you to consider it a question of basic fairness: the unelected, supranational, self-appointed masters of the world are trying to track and influence our behavior without even asking for permission or inquiring about our opinion.

We are being assured that this is done for our good. However, these same people benefit financially from well-placed investments in companies growing fake meat comprised of cancer tumor cells.
258   Onvacation   2023 May 5, 5:16pm  

In regards to the meme above, with a digital currency and the oligarchical control society that comes with it we will have nothing to sell. There will be no waiters or barbers to tip. Buskers, homeless, and grandparents will be eliminated as useless eaters. There will be no privacy whatsoever. Canada's government already tipped their hand when they froze bank accounts for wrong think. They wanted want to eliminate us.

Remember Orwell's telescreen? It's already in your pocket. Let's not lose the coins in our pockets, and our liberty.

Pay with cash whenever you can, especially with small business, big government is trying to suffocate them with taxes and regulation.

United Nations Planning Digital ID Linked to Bank Accounts ...

The UN describes this goal as “an open, free, secure and human-centered digital future.”

The digital future as envisaged by these groups is going to be quite the opposite of open, free, or human-centric, however.

As far as the UN’s “vision” for a future global financial system, it is supposed to be harmonized with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

It would be governed by something called “the apex body” that is yet to be set up.

It will take what's it's always taken. When parents see their children starving to death before their eyes, when families sell daughters into sex slavery to feed the family, when stomachs are empty and the people have nothing left to lose. We got pretty close to that in the early 1930's.

When you have completely demoralized and brainwashed a population, the only thing that will break some, possibly enough, of them out of it is the human survival instinct. So many are indeed cattle, and nothing will help them. They will place their necks on the chopping block willingly.

The urge for freedom of any sort has been systematically bred out of the human race for almost 10,000 years. Hypergamy is a great example. All the loyal women were murdered by being raped to death, while the conniving whores survived.

What does it take to get a revolution?

As silly as this sounds, comedians. They're able to tell the woke culture better than anyone and actually make people think. It's like "oh shit, that's actually true." Some people will always be blind, but if you can make a good joke about it, as long as you don't get cancelled it can wake people up.

RIP, but go listen to some Norm McDonald clips. Bad Tube, but not a chance in hell you get away with this now. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6aOy1lC3NE

Yes, exactly!

That's my motive with the memes I collect and publish each day.

Elon had a good explanation for why the left can't meme: because they are lying, all the time. It's just not funny to repeat a lie, like "safe and effective".

The right, on the other hand, has wonderful memes because the point of each meme is to expose a lie, and people feel the tension between what their criminal overlords are telling them and the truth. Example: "Safe and effective is not a lie. It's two lies." People laugh because they know it's true but aren't allowed to say it.

Ah, I finally understand. Most "people" around me are just cattle and you can do whatever you want to them, as long as they aren't starving.


To be honest, this is exactly what SBF was saying. There's a quote from SBF which seems to be erased from the internet now. "People are stupid. Like really stupid." He uses this to justify ripping them off and to justify the system which will now ensure that absolutely nothing bad happens to him.

I've read a plausible argument that the Chinese were selected to be genetically more meek and passive because the emperor had every violent criminal executed for something like 3,000 years. All the men with big balls were removed from the population.

Not that violent criminals are a good thing, but the same testosterone which makes men violent also makes men willing to defend themselves and their families.

A good example of a guy that would not have survived in historical China is Roy Larner, who would be considered just a soccer lout except for the fact that he fought back against Muslim terrorists armed with knives:

London attack: Football fan shouted 'F* you, I’m Millwall' and took on knife-wielding terrorists with bare fists

Calls for Roy Larner, the 'Lion of London Bridge', to be given a medal after reportedly saving lives and making Millwall fans popular by single-handedly taking on the three attackers

A football fan reportedly yelled “F**k you, I’m Millwall” as he single-handedly took on the three knife-wielding London terror attackers armed with nothing more than his fists.

Roy Larner has already been hailed a hero, with a petition launched for him to be awarded the George Cross medal for his actions in the Black and Blue steakhouse on Saturday night.

In fighting back, the 47-year-old Millwall fan gave dozens of others who were in the Borough Market restaurant the chance to escape.

Now out of the intensive care ward of St Thomas’ Hospital, where he was treated for knife wounds all over his body including his neck, the father-of-one has told The Sun how he reacted when the killers burst into the restaurant shouting “Islam, Islam” and “This is for Allah”.

“Like an idiot,” he told the newspaper, “I shouted back at them. I thought, ‘I need to take the p out of these b*s’.”

“I took a few steps towards them and said, ‘F* you, I’m Millwall’. So they started attacking me.”

Mr Larner added: “I stood in front of them trying to fight them off. Everyone else ran to the back.

“I was on my own against all three of them, that’s why I got hurt so much.

“It was just me, trying to grab them with my bare hands and hold on. I was swinging.

“I got stabbed and sliced eight times. They got me in my head, chest and both hands. There was blood everywhere.

“They were saying, ‘Islam, Islam!’. I said again, ‘F* you, I’m Millwall!’

“It was the worst thing I could have done as they carried on attacking me.

“Luckily, none of the blows were straight at me or I’d be dead.”


So we actually do need men like that in society.
