Beware The Ides Of March? 

(March 15 for the Julius Caesar/Shakespeare impaired!)

I subscribe to a smattering of emails from allegedly like-minded individuals.

Sometimes I am in agreement with their themes.

Other times, not so much.

One guy, who operates a small libertarianesque, survivalist business has been promoting a book ‘not yet in bookstores’, purporting to describe the next financial collapse, and confiscation of bank accounts(!) by the government!! 

(Other nations wherein this has begun, or is beginning! – ZeroHedge)

Allegedly, this is to begin MARCH 15!  (The Ides of March, for all you Julius Caesar fans.)

Coincidence? Astrology? A soothsayer’s truth?

I’ve no idea. I cannot afford the book, and probably wouldn’t buy it, anyway.

Most of my income is direct deposit disability.  I suspect if BIGGOV wanted to take it, they would so do.

With impunity!

WHY?  Because they can!

(So, you thought you’d withdraw your cash and hide it in your mattress?  Not so fast there, Bucko!)

  1. It has long been known that the last thing a totalitarian gov’t does before its final collapse is to loot the treasury. And in these days of electronic funds, it ain’t just their treasury they can loot. Like you said, if they decide they want it, the only way to avoid it would be to have no money in the bank to begin with.

  2. I’m not sure what the Guv will actually do, but it sure seems times are getting ripe to chop a couple of zeroes off the currency (ol’ Ben replaces George … as the new George). Interesting that it’s pretty much mandatory that one has an active bank account.

  3. It will be interesting to see if they can make that stick!
