Lending to Kroger

“Neither a borrower nor a lender be.”

~ Polonius, “The Tragical History of Hamlet Prince of Denmark“, Shakespeare

A few days ago, I went to Kroger. The register at checkout indicated that I owed $10.15. So, I presented eleven dollars in cash.

The clerk announced, “Due to the national coin shortage we cannot provide you with change. If you wish, I can put the change on your Kroger loyalty card.”

Checking my pocket for spare change, and finding only a handful of pennies, I looked at the cashier and said, “So, Kroger is borrowing 85 cents from me? I guess they’re good for it. Seems odd though.”

The clerk replied, “It really is odd, yes.”

So I think to myself, “I wonder how much they stand to make from this zero interest compulsory lending scheme?”

Turns out their 2019 revenues were $129 billion or so. Hmmm. If 10% of transactions were for cash, which may be low, I don’t really know, then $12.9 billion would be offered in a calendar year for cash. Let’s guess the average transaction is $129, which seems high. And let’s guess the change (some will have exact change, of course) were averaging only 35 cents per transaction. So, the public fork over $35,000,000 for up to a week or longer before their “change” can be applied to their next purchase.

Pretty nifty scam for the big box stores. Banks are also posting signs on their doors to the effect that they won’t provide coins.

1792 Mint Act

A favourite of mine is the 1792 mint act which actually says that any government official who causes the mint to emit coins of less silver, gold, or copper content than specified in that law may be sentenced to death. The constitution says that “no state may make any thing but gold and silver coins a tender in payment of debt.” You can look these things up yourself, and then you might be persuaded that they really say those words. I’m sick of coddling people who want a link to everything. Learn to use a search tool like DuckDuckGo (which doesn’t track your searches and never sells your data to governments). Or suffer in ignorance, as you prefer.

Now, in 1965, the evil filthy mass murdering dictator who overthrew JFK in a bloody coup in Dallas said that “silver is too expensive to be used as money,” and took the silver out of the money. In 1983, the copper was taken out of the penny. So, they have been counterfeiting the coins for quite a while. But they have not forgotten how.

They have, however, decided to track your purchases. So they will do so, and if you don’t like it, too bad. A cashless society is here, brought to you by the communists of the international banking cartel and the fascist cronies of the big box stores. You don’t get a choice.

Why?

Why are they tracking your purchases? So they can find out whether you’ve been naughty or nice. So they can keep up on how much ammo you’ve bought, and how many household chemicals, and also whether you buy things for your family when they are in hospital or have birthdays. The deep state wants to impose a social credit score.

Your friend Trump has either authorised the national coin shortage or has been powerless to prevent it.

I will say that Doktor Fauci has proven to be a very unreliable person with regard to truth, health, or safety. Yet, Trump continues to back everything Fauci wants.

I believe that’s because Trump wants to see the vaccines mandated, and looks at the trillions of dollars to be spent on them, worldwide, with their monthly updates, by governments on behalf of billions of people, and salivates about becoming the first trillionaire. But perhaps I have him all wrong. We’ll see.

YOU MUST WEAR IT!

During the Nazi declared boycott upon Jewish stores on 1 April 1933, yellow Stars of David were painted on windows. In reaction to this, Robert Weltsch wrote an article entitled Tragt ihn mit Stolz, den gelben Fleck (Wear the Yellow Badge with Pride) which was published on 4 April 1933. History of the Yellow Star

Today in Colorado

Today a friend in Colorado reports that the communist dictator posing as governor has decreed that everyone must wear a masque. A fine against retailers that allow people to enter without masques of up to $10,000 per incident is the stick. There is no carrot.

There is no scientific evidence, at all, that masques save lives. There is no evidence that any masque can stop any disease.

Some months back, I replenished my preps and bought a box of surgical masques. On the box the label clearly says that it does not stop any disease. It cannot. None of these masques are sufficient for preventing virus particles from reaching the airways, and none of them protect the eyes, ears, or other bodily openings into which the virus might pass. As recently as February the communist Centres for Disease Control announced that masques were not useful, and warned against trying to buy them. Since that time, people in jobs in construction have found many kinds of masques unavailable at the hardware stores. So, they are inhaling a lot of particles and fumes that they might be able to protect from, if only.

Long Ago in Germany

The argument made in Europe in the Middle Ages and again in Germany under the Nazi regime was that there were public health consequences for allowing Jewish people to be in public without some obvious indication of their ethnic and religious heritage. There was a yellow badge, a Star of David, that was to be worn by all Jewish people.

People who would not wear the badge were publicly humiliated, beaten by other people on the streets, shoved into the gutter, or killed. That’s happening now. People are reporting their neighbours for not wearing masques, refusing entry to stores and restaurants, and in one recent incident in Ontario, a man was killed for trying to enter a grocery store without a masque.

(The thin blue line crowd will insist that he struggled and resisted and fought back and that if he had only obeyed, he would be alive. The Nuremberg trials revealed that it is no defence to impose an immoral order just because you were following someone else’s order. But thin blue line pig lovers are boot licking filth. Come at me.)

So, here we are, America. You must wear a masque. If you don’t, you will be taken away. In Arkansas, they are using military escort to take people to quarantine, according to a recent news story.

If you aren’t going to ever doing anything to remain free, then you won’t.

Places to Go, Things to Do, People to Be

Once again a small number of evil people have determined to enslave the rest of mankind. Good people are ready to oppose tyranny. You have an opportunity to meet some of them at events coming to you soon.

Freedom is demonstrably, provably better than slavery. Freedom is better than tyranny, and, again, this can be proven. Logic, economics, health, conservation of natural resources, and inventiveness all support these conclusions. We are better off when we delegate fewer powers to others, keep our own original sovereignty, and build for a better tomorrow.

These conclusions became so clear by the 1970s that the postmodernist movement was founded to attempt to strip away logic, reason, and standards of accomplishment in the pretence that the undesirable, unwanted, hateful, and evil ways of authoritarian governments should be accepted even though they are clearly no good at all. The 262 million dead in government genocides and the 55 million dead in wars stand in mute testimony to the depth of evil involved in state authority.

Thousands of years ago, Jesus said that a wise man builds his home upon a rock. Rains, floods, and winds come and beat upon that house and it stands. A foolish man builds upon the shifting sands of expedience. All political systems, all authoritarian strategies are built upon sand. All of them fail. And, in failing, all such systems bring about misery for millions or billions of people. I invite you to put on the greatness you have within you, and be who you need to be to win freedom for yourself and your family.

If you want to rule yourself, if you want to work with other sovereign free people to build free communities, to engage in trade and commerce, to advance the cause of freedom, to get to the amazing future that awaits, you should find other people who think as you do. You can cooperate with them voluntarily to make our world better, for fun and for profit.

You won’t find anyone at FreedomFest.com in Las Vegas later this month. It has been cancelled by tyrannical decree of the governor of Nevada. However, an emergency meeting of freedom enthusiasts is being organised, and will take place, so watch that page for details.

You can find some free people at the Jackelope Freedom Festival in the Sittgreaves National Forest in Arizona (near Heber Overgaard) in the first two weeks of August 2020. I attended in 2018 and 2019, and there are many good people there. I’ve not made arrangements to attend this year, but I’m willing to do so if I can find sponsors for that purpose.

You can find such people at the IglooLuau.com in Colorado 24 to 27 September 2020. I have made arrangements to attend, and the event is sponsored by CryptoHippie.com as well as Houston Space Society, After Dark Publications, and the Resilient Ways Foundation.

You can find such people at MidFest in Oklahoma 10-11 October 2020.

You can find some at Luau East in Kentucky, 19 October 2020. Links and other information available in the near future.

You need to form teams, establish secure communications, make plans, and build for the future.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of good is for good people to cooperate. Your time is now.
