That is just the start. What they really have in mind is chipping us all like dogs and cats and linking the chip to our bank accounts so THEY control when we can access our money or not. Imagine, waiting in line to pay for groceries and not being able to because your chip was turned off. Every American should watch the Aaron Russo film "America: Freedom to Fascism" if you want to know what is in store... There is even an interview with David Rockefeller who confirms the big power grab strategy of the elites.

Also, besides BoA not taking cash, Apple Computer won't either. Remember the story of the woman who wanted to get an IPad and pay with cash and Apple wouldn't let her that came out within a few weeks of their putting it on the market?

So do you have a problem with Apple refusing to accept cash for purchases?
In the past you have been all about personal liberties, so I would think that this philosophy would extend to the owners of Apple choosing how to run their own business.

The picture is much larger than what you are seeing perhaps. There is a HUGE problem in this nation when a corporation will not accept cash for purchases...the two most prominent issues are the value of our dollar (many nations are looking into not accepting our money) and tracking an individuals purchases. This is very large, broad issue that takes a tremendous amount of research and understanding. I am not saying you don't or can't do that. I am just saying that this isn't about a companies decision to accept cash or not, this IS about personal liberty that most don't or fail to understand.

Agreed.

If people would take a step back and see exactly WHY these banks and other companies don't want to accept cash, people would be a bit more upset about it.

Construction people have been upset about it for a long time. This stuff is not new.

Go in to cash a check a customer gives you and get a taste of what it's like to treated like a criminal

I love having all the wing places around! I really like when you can choose a bunch of different kinds. Kickin Chicken has a wing special on Mondays. I believe it is 24 wings for $12.
