    See, I watch television.


    LOL
    That's fine, they will become hooked and never leave. Who knows, maybe those government agencies might even learn something.

    So since all you government employees are watching... QUIT WASTING MY MONEY!!!

    I don't know about that. Running a country is not like budgeting for a family. And I would really, really, REALLY hate to be the one to have to choose what cuts to make. IMO, that would be a nightmare come alive.

    Okay.........so now I am curious......guess I best go online and read about them........

    ...but...........so what happens if I am a snow bird---traveling---and gone for months at a time? How much is this? With a toll tag......and without?

    How long do I---as a visitor---have to pay? All foreign to me...........

    There has been talk of more 'toll things' up here.........the toll was removed from the one bridge years ago. Don't have anything else with a toll--right now.

    I've seen convenience stores, grocery stores, and fast food joints use the marker that checks for fake bills. I've never seen a more upscale place do the same.

    A quick search of recent counterfeit bills being passed show the locations as grocery stores, WalMarts, and fast food restaurants.

    Interesting. I would have guessed drug dealers and foreign criminals would be the ones faking money.

    They are, but they don't spend it at McDonald's or Wal-Mart. It gets 'spent' overseas, traded for another currency, or stuffed in a vault.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    I prefer paying in cash to avoid bank fees and possibility of my account to be hacked. So, this new rule is definitely irritating for me. :p
    It is also not great if there will be more and more establishments that will not accept cash on many locations.

    infowars was started by a conspiracy theorist. I would confirm that the information is even remotely true from a couple of different independent sources before I believe it.

    As for paying cash at tolls, it is done all of the time. THose without transponders may have to pay a higher fee but you can still pay cash. Sometimes you may have to pull into the toll hq booth and pay there, but you can still pay. Your license plate is recorded by a plate reader and for those at borders, it is run through a plate database almost instantly.

    The cash = terrorism/drug dealing thing has been floating around for a while. If you pay cash for a house, or bail someone out of jail with more than 10k, they will do an assessment on you right then and there. If you're not money laundering or have proof of income, you shouldn't have a worry. I'm ok with someone looking into my financial background, I think it is a small price to pay for liberty and freedom.

    gah! Thanks for pointing that out. I usually look at the start date, but forgot. I got sucked into the past tense post vortex! Sorry.
