Last time at the store I couldn't
pay with cash at self checkout.
They said because of covid there
was a coin shortage. Huh? That
makes no sense.

Cash isn't flowing to the banks, due to the massive drop in cash transactions caused by the business closures.

We’re headed toward a 100% cashless system, that will allow the government to track every transaction to the penny.

There is only $1.8 trillion of physical US currency in circulation on the planet. The rest of the $14 trillion money supply (M2) is digital. We are already 87% into a cashless system.

The Fed has become the central bank of the world, by loaning money to foreign central banks, which lend dollars to banks in their countries, which conduct much of their business in dollars.

The amount loaned to foreign Central Banks is unknown and is recorded in a separate Fed balance sheet, that not even the President can see.

Controlling the world’s reserve currency and going completely cashless allows the Fed to dictate how every transaction is made, and to track every transaction any where in the world to the cent.

No wonder China is trying to replace the dollar as the world’s reserve currency.

It is insanity
Georgia is getting crushed by the virus.
He actually says everyone should wear a mask then he bows to Trump loosening restrictions regarding masks
insanity
Georgia can beat this is everybody wears a mask

Which our City was doing an excellent job at with local enforcment.
But, the State wants to overreach.

That seems so ironic to me coming from someone who wants the US to be the police force of the world.

Totally different topics... This is about allowing cities to have local health madates such as masks if they determine they are locally needed...

Can’t read the article, it’s behind a paywall or something.

But yeah, just found out one of my cousins got COVID over July 4th weekend at a party on the river.

Sorry about that, I didn't know it was an exclusive story, and sorry about your cousin. It let me look at it without logging in, though.

There were several 4th of July parties around here, too, and cases that resulted from them. You've probably heard about them.
