    • separate the bottom from the top,
    • the left from the right,
    • the light from the dark, and
    • blame each for the sins of the other
    • - until they beg you to take charge.

Been hearing some disturbing news of new happening at US banks.

Now if you try to withdraw more than $600 via a cashier, they have been instructed to question you as to where your money will be spent.

What the fuck business is it of theirs to know where your legal tender is going?

Communist instructions hailing from our Democrat government.
Biden wants to know how and where you spend your money.

Doesn’t everyone enjoy receiving the third degree about their spending habits in the communist USA?

I’ve heard it from several people who their banks did it to them in different states, but it is in the news as well. Go withdraw $650 and let me know how it’s all fake news.

He's saying your'e crazy for suggesting it now, later he will say you are crazy for saying there is something wrong with it.

But don't worry WendyDarling. I hear there is fast progress being made, doctors may be able to effectuate spine transplants within the next 20 years.

That's the general involution they're being plotted into.

Suggesting he did once have a working spine. But if that were the case he would not have taken this path in the first place.

K: so, this morning, I go to my bank and I talk to David.. now David has
been a teller here for decades and we have known David for almost
20 years... so, I ask David, is it true there is some sort of rule or law requiring
tellers to inquire about any money withdrawn over $600... David said,
not that he knows of.. he calls over Nancy who is the Bank Manager who
we have known for over a decade and ask her... she says she had heard
of some and I quote "Urban myths" claiming this but it isn't true.....
and she said, again quote " some people will believe anything"

and there we have it...from people at a bank I have been to for almost
20 years and they say no....but will that end this? no, because fools will
believe anything.....

now in further investigating this, I found this....
in the current budget process, there is a rule within the
new budget that requires banks and other financial institutions to
report any bank account with $600 or more in their banks and other, to the IRS...
this aspect of the budget hasn't been passed yet because this actual
bill hasn't been formally approved, passed into law... I haven't yet
found out if it is within the new budget yet... but I am still looking...

so it isn't currently law yet, but it is being discussed in congress...
as for me personally, I oppose this...for several reasons...
one reason given to do this is to limit tax fraud.. but the most tax
fraud isn't at the level of people at $600 dollars in a bank..
most tax fraud is done at the million and billionaire level...
they can afford lawyers and accountants to find these loopholes
whereas the common person cannot find or use these loopholes...
if you want to limit tax fraud, go to where the fraud is being
done, at the corporate level and at the millionaire level.. and up....

so, I oppose this attempt to report all bank accounts over $600 dollars
or more to the IRS...for another reason, it means that practically every
bank account in America will get reported to the IRS.......as I/we have three
accounts with money over $600 dollars and I am certainly not alone,
I personally oppose this as as unnecessary intrusion into my personal affairs...

I pay my share of taxes as shown by my W-2 forms and the reporting done
by the company that employs me.......

K: as I have overcome a severe hearing loss at birth, I have far more courage and spine
then you ever will have....the strength to overcome a birth defect, being handicap is way, way
unnoticed... and within a few short years, I shall become totally deaf...
and I face it with courage and strength.... and resolve.....have you overcome
some current or past similar situation? doubt it......

Illinois and Iowa banks already ask the questions of what you are doing with your withdrawls of over $600.

Basically meaning report everyone with a bank account. Democrats undoubtedly introduced the bill since Biden wants it and there's enough to pass it.

California banks aren't acting retarded yet? Unbelievable!

The bank intrusiveness is new here in the last month so it's coming your way too. Enjoy the communism for which you voted.

ahhh, just got some new facts.....

the claim that people taking $600 or more out and is asked as to what they are
doing with it, was first reported on Inforwars.. and then repeated on Facebook....
it isn't true.. the facts are as I have reported, that there is a propose bill
that wants to have any bank account with over $600 dollars be reported to
the IRS.. a propose bill, not an actual bill that has passed and been signed,

as for your other bogus claims, nope you are, as usual, wrong....
I talked to family in Illinois, mother and one sister, couldn't get the other
sister, and they say, no, it simply isn't true... there is no teller asking
you what you are doing with any withdrawal over $600 dollars...

so contacted brother in Minnesota and he says he ain't true there
and sister in Fla and she says, nope, it isn't true....

so, there is no national law suggesting what you suggest is true
and there are no local laws, as far as I know, suggesting tellers
are asking what you are doing with any withdrawal over $600 dollars....

and to continue your streak of being completely wrong.....

if by chance there was a law passed that required tellers to ask
what you are spending $600 or more, that still isn't
communism....your ignorance of communism still surprises me,
why I don't know... congress passing laws requiring business to
conduct themselves in a certain way, such as requiring
private business to require masks, that isn't communism...
that congress passes laws about businesses can or can't do,
happens every single day and has happened since the beginning of
America, since 1789...the adaption of the American constitution....

I know your ignorance of communism is immense, so let me help you...
communism is where the state owns the means of production...
businesses...and there is no, theoretically, no private property...

is either one the case right now? Nope... rule or law from the state
requiring masks isn't by any means communism, it is good science,
good medicine, it is good common sense, it is rational and reasonable,
but it isn't communism...so any law requiring business to act in
a certain way isn't communism...by any stretch of the imagination....

it is something that government does every single day and that businesses
engage with every single day.....so even if congress passes a law requiring
banks and financial institutions to disclose private matters to the IRS isn't
communism.. it is very bad government, but it isn't communism.....
and if congress requires banks to inquire about how one spends
a withdrawal of $600, that still isn't communism... it is once again,
bad government and oppressive, but not communism....

everything a government does isn't communism....

I'm right there with ya keter. I haven't slept in two days or been able to remain standing for longer than fifteen seconds without collapsing. I go to wake med emergency at 3:00 a.m., they give me some ibuprofen (which I already have), a pamphlet of exercises (which I already know), and refer me to a chiropractor who won't take me without insurance. The nurse dumps the pills in my hand, I tell her I'm not taking the shit, and I walk out. I spent a total of fifteen minutes in that room, got nothing out of it, and will be sent a bill for upwards of $800. And I still owe em for the $2000 eye drops I got last year.

Now I've handled this leg length discrepancy myself for over twenty years, and never have I had an episode like this. Even when I was wrongfully imprisoned and ignored by the doctors, I made it through. I used to trade food from my 1,200 calorie a day diet (you don't get as much food as regular population when you're in ICON because you're locked in a closet sized room for 23 hours a day and don't move around much) for pain and/or sleeping pills. I used to take so many of em I would throw up. Dry heaves usually, cuz I didn't have much food in my stomach - I traded it for pills. It was either constant hunger or excruciating pain.

Anyway, I've never been in pain like this before. I am literally writhing around on the floor as I type this.

Haven't worked in three weeks. I'm gonna hold out until I'm either broke or in such pain that I can no longer tolerate it. Then I'll go back, but I'll be further sacrificing my credit rating because I'll never pay em a fucking dime.

Damn commies.

If they didn't have all those insurance laws, pharmaceutical companies would have to compete to attract clientele and prices would be halfway sane. I mean percocets aren't THAT expensive to make.

Come to think of it, why don't you have insurance? You have a job, right? You would probably pay a pittance for these meds.
