    The precedent has already been set to confiscate any bank holdings to preserve the bank. Remember the Greek Haircut they got? I don't trust any paper. Same with the FDIC. But what you gonna do?

    So, let me get this straight, are you saying you don't trust the government and banks to look out for your best interests and honor the pledge to secure the funds they hold for you??!!
    Now there's no more oak oppression
    They passed a noble law
    Now the trees are all kept equal
    By hatchet, axe and saw.

    I will not comply.

    and leave you the hell alone!

    The problem with all your urban living is people who chose to live in urban areas invariably are democrat liberal style sheep who are easy to control via lies and propaganda. They constantly yearn for ever more govt control. You do it to yourselves, deliberately, and with relish. You get no sympathy from me. I just sold 12 head of 4 year olds, for a nice stack of AGE's, to a Malaysian beef importer. Two of those coins went immediately to pay for diesel from a local fuel depot expediter.

    You are very fortunate to live in a region that has kept to traditional values, in commerce to. It's not that easy start a ranch or farm for those in the city. And not all of us are "liberal sheep who are easy to control via lies and propaganda". However, the majority here have unfortunately not only have taken control over our cities, they have taken control of our nation, and now wish to spread their "values" over the entire world (Orthodox Christian nations included). We do not all do it to ourselves. Conservatives living in neo-liberal cities are the ones fighting against what really is an evil, day in, day out, an evil that is coming to your home, given the increasing controls at the federal level that have grown stronger than you may want to admit.

    Still, what is not popular knowledge, is that in San Francisco, MORE businesses are "cash only" than you will find in most suburban regions, red states included. Reason being, is we have many traditional small "mom and pop" style businesses that do not like finance fees of credit cards, while in many suburban regions, they are accustomed to big name stores. Helping in cash use is that
    businesses offering services to the general public are required by City ordinance to accept cash. (Many hip "woke" urban techie people are actually extremely prejudiced against the poor and elderly, those who use cash, so the true honest leftist in the city made taking cash a requirement). Also, when I can, I have been able to receive compensation in gold, as at least the Indian community (yes from India), know and understand gold. Not so much for the whites here, who tend to be the most liberal of all.

    Really do admire the world you can live in. Someday maybe I'll move there. But for now, I live in the region I know, and try to help people as much as I can vs big government, it's actually what I do for a living (permit expediting - architectural/engineering plans). You should count your blessings, and not be to hard on those who do not live in as free a place as you do. I still have admiration for you both as a person, and for living in such a choice place. However, I do hope you will consider that perhaps those who live outside of your region may be able to see better what is happening in the larger world, thus our differences of opinion on national policy. (Warning - Montana may not be strong enough to resist neo-liberalism in the long run, especially as the federal government grows ever stronger).

    Plus even in liberal states like the socialist state of new york the vast majority of the state is not a "city" and is quite rural. Our number one state business is still farming. I can just drive a couple of miles and get beef, chicken or eggs from a farmer. Our liberal governors often win office after losing 50+ counties out of 62. The population may be in the cities, but the rest of the state is quite conservative in both business and voting. Can I do business in gold or silver here in NY? Most likely with some small businesses, such as my local electrician. But I'd rather not give up PM when people are willing to take fiat toilet paper with ink on it. I do know that there's no slot on our gas pumps for inserting silver or gold and that the average pimple faced purple haired cash register person wouldn't know what gold or silver was unless it was a shaped into piece of fishing tackle stuck through some part of their body.

    That’s cool motocat. I thought maybe you were a mechanic. You could have plenty work here. It usually takes 3 months or more to get an expedited permit approved. 6-9 months or longer if not expedited. The building department here is really slow. I needed to pull a permit for a residential fire sprinkler system the expediter wanted 3200$. I ended up doing it myself with help of architect. I think they charge so much here to expedite probably half the money they charge goes in an envelope under the table to building dept.
    Nevada New Hampshire Wyoming Utah with goldbacks maybe someday WV. There are a few more accepting gold and silver as legal tender. Surely the private sector will follow the herd to go cashless CBDC and do as they are told obedient to their money masters as most people are dependent on using plastic cards anyway. Some people here strive long and hard to never hold cash do all transactions electronically. But yes many Thai Vietnamese Indian Chinese people know the value of gold as a store of wealth more than others. Maybe there is some resistance to accepting CBDC at the state level?

    My "expediting" mostly involves doing the architectural and engineering plans as I know the particular city likes to see. I'm not (normally) the one handing envelopes, though I know those that do. Someone not knowing what they want on the plans will have many round of review, and take perhaps 8 months as opposed to my typical 4 months. It's even slower these days, as most city workers now work from home, and I know for a fact many are not actually at home (rather far away taking pictures of waterfalls).

    For those who see cash only as a way to avoid paying taxes, it should be known there are many digital ways to do the same --such as gift cards, various cyber, hiring tax avoidance experts, etc. Also, a lot of fraud is done in the open, just change the name/definition of something, and so many digits get routed as never intended. That's actually the most common way when it comes to big government and institutions. The anti-physical currency thing it just one way the big fish make it easier to coral the little fish, that it is to fight crime is just an excuse.

    Where do you need building permits?

    Danielle Di Martino Booth does not see a CBDC coming. Around 52 minutes and something prior. Interesting interview. She thinks Powell will not pivot.

    We need building permits in Honolulu. Dept planning permitting DPP are really slow and short staff who can do that kind of work. The drawings architects designers structural engineers draftsmen are good but DPP is really slow to get anything done of course without an envelope under the table. I heard some people got busted and some inspectors taking bribes. So idk how it is now for expediters.
