And saw another article on cash being seized or forfeited by police and government officials.
This is NOTHING new. It's been going on for decades. It was started with the Rico act. It hasn't had much attention because of folks usingg debit cards. If ya wanna see how it works. Go to an airport and pay in cash for your plane ticket. I guarantee you officials will be alerted and you will be asked to accompany men in suits into a back room. Of course your answer should be for them to go efff themselves because they will take your cash and it will cost you more in legal fee to recover it than it's worth.
I know this because my business is a cash business. I was once on my way to pick up a horse I bought and was stopped. Good thing I was born with distain for authority. that wasn't my only incident with the would be thieves.
With tech now being able to immediately verify that funds are available. Less and less folks are carrying cash. So our government has now decided to go the source and decide how much cash you should have in liquid assets, if they think you have too much ...well your a suspect of conducting illegal activities.
For the life of me I can't understand why Americans are not rioting in the streets everywhere. I reckon I'm just a redneck/hillbilly but you ain't getting my cash without a fight. I earned it with my sweat.
Seems the only people who have due process rights are illegal immigrants.
