The cashless life won't be worth livingWhile we're all over-focused on "Ukraine," our overlords are moving quietly, and swiftly, to take ALL cash away, in favor of a global social credit system. We can't let them get away with it. ...One way to start fighting this development is to go back to using cash instead of cards as much as possible—starting with #CashFriday, as urged by Catherine Austin Fitts. This means that, every Friday, we use only cash to buy what we may need: https://home.solari.com/cash-friday/.Think about what this development portends: No cash will mean no autonomy, as every purchase that you’ll want to make must be approved on high—approval that will be contingent on your social credit score.
In the “brave new world” scenario speculated on by the World Economic Forum (WEF), people could soon enough – by 2030 – “own nothing and be happy.”Well, perhaps not so fast, because the issue of ownership and questions around it – over anything from computer games, to health choices – are getting ever more relevant, rather than fading into obscurity.One indicator that may or may not fit into that is the curious fact that CDs are making something of a comeback after it seemed they were virtually dead and buried with the music and movie industry shifting resolutely to streaming, and the consumers embracing that shift.Streaming certainly remains far superior in terms of adoption and revenue over any sales and use of physical media, thanks to costs and, above all, convenience – but there may come a time when streaming will hit a plateau, in a world where trust is in ever-higher demand and shorter supply. For some – not many, but many more than in previous years – having their music in their physical possession instead of at the mercy of streaming services is clearly a better proposition.

2. lesson of the day...Quit going to restaurants and find something else to do with your time instead of eating and shopping.
Cash is no longer accepted at Walmart on Saturdays, slowly the "cashless" society is being normalized...Another conspiracy theory coming true.
Arnie1974@Arnie1974Imagine a world without cash? A cashless society… I know it’s hard, but I would recommend to strictly use cash only. Stop swiping your bank cards…
Stop Digital Dictators with #CashFriday and #CashEveryDayWhen we use a credit card, we feed the beastly plan to cancel cash and control us with Central Bank Digital Currency. Instead, use cash, the slingshot capable of downing the globalist Goliath.
My palms were sweating two weeks ago when I took possession of several hundred dollars and put them into my wallet and into my purse, determined to make perhaps the most important political statement of our time. Later in the day, I still felt a little out of practice when the bill at the veterinarians office came to $82.I pulled four twenty-dollar bills and two one-dollar bills out of my wallet and paid up entirely in good old American cash. It felt much more real and more serious handing over that cash than when I pulled out a shiny plastic credit card to have the bill charged.It also felt good to make a financial and political statement, “You can’t control me!” that will bring down the walls of globalism if enough of us do it.It’s time to join us in the CashFriday and CashEveryDay movement, a brilliantly simple crusade to stop the globalists’ plan to create a global digital currency with Chinese Communist Party-style surveillance and control imposed on everyone by governments and oligarchs.
CC's are cash if you're paying them off monthly essentially and they can pay you back bigly. Plus fraud protection. Haven't paid for a flight in almost 5 years now. I've probably done 30 trips, most with a family of 5. Also no international fees and exchange rate bullshit foreigners play with travelers on purchases if you have the right card. Though we still bring cash traveling. I understand privacy concerns, but you just flew to Europe Patrick. Passport. You're already being tracked in so many ways. I presume you drive and register a car? Tracked. Not sure if Amber alerts are national, but almost all of those kidnappings get solved in 24-48 hours. Tracking. Those cameras in cities and big suburbs at intersections. Tracking. Hell, running this website allows you to be tracked. It's impossible to not be tracked in some way, shape, or form. 100% I tracked people down for real estate leads for my boss and it's easy as can be. I don't like the tip added th...
I would argue this is mostly pointless unless you are willing to start your own country to make another currency or run for office.
yeah ran into that before in CA once, when didn’t have a card. some weird post covid shit where touching money kills grandma was the reason. but after asking manager they took cash.
I remember foreigner tourists being the worst because some countries don't do tipping.
I tip at the takeout joints I frequent and make small talk with the employees. I get fantastic service there. Can't stand the prompt to add a tip at the credit card scanners now though.
I've swamp assed thousands of dollars.

I don't tip my HVAC guy or painter. I mean I might buy them lunch if I'm around or something.
August 1, 2022Israel begins its war on cashFears of a digital-only future grow.Starting August 1, Israelis will not be able to make cash and bank check payments above 6,000 Shekels. According to the country’s Tax Authority, the law is meant to combat tax non-compliance, organized crime, and money laundering.“We want the public to reduce the use of cash money,” said Tamar Bracha of Israel’s Tax Authority, speaking to The Media Line. “The goal is to reduce cash fluidity in the market, mainly because crime organizations tend to rely on cash. By limiting the use of it, criminal activity is much harder to carry out.”
The San Diego fair was purported to have a "no cash" policy this year. For parking and tickets we had to use card, but everyone else took cash. Other than some restaurants mid-scamdemic, I think that whole no-cash thing is just virtue signaling, because no one is willing to lose a sail over it.
As discussed I give zero shit about my privacy. I recently had my Amex hacked/charged fraudulently and it was gone in 24 hours. Happened again and it's gone again. If someone defrauds me in person with cash I have almost no recourse and the money is gone. I get the perspective of people wanting to use cash, but I get paid to use credit.
You're slow as shit in a checking line.
You're also getting nothing on your cash if it's sitting in your wallet. That's undeniable as well.
I won't abandon my society and make innocent people suspects by getting a few hundred dollars back on a credit card.
