“Neither a borrower nor a lender be.”
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 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.
