Exact same for me as well.
I don't even use a savings. I know in my head what I have to save each month for my Chrysler 300 payment, rent, food, gas, etc.

All I need to do is have a certain amount direct deposited into my account. It's pretty nice.

Imagine what would happen if the databases and information systems used to allow for this cashless society were to ever temporarily shut down. The risk of that ever happening would probably prevent our government from ever trying to go down the cashless route.

It's been close to it for years already in the US. Japan is the exact opposite, most every place accepts cash only, so you have to carry around benjamins on your person.

All your info will be public, you will literally be carrying everything about you in a small chip.

I'm not down with that.
Really interesting posts. I am pretty sure you got an early look at what is to come.

There would be back up systems to make sure what you have described could not happen.

According to the most recent figures, the cost for the U.S. Mint to produce and distribute one cent has risen to 2.41 cents, its highest level ever.

http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2...er-penny-coins

Yeah Lincoln's mug is probably the only reason it lasted this long. Apparently the nickel costs over 11 cents to make. Combined they result in an annual lost of over 100 million bucks.

I think we are, for the most part, a cashless society already. But I don't see it disappearing completely for decades to come.

In it film producer the late Aaron Russo talking to Alex Jones says the end game is exactly what the older guy describes.
Look, I never once said I don't believe that some conspiracies could have some truth's to them. The problem is that individuals like Alex Jones, prey on the desire of people to WANT these conspiracies to be true. When it's nothing more than an advancement of technology or just a fraction of what people think.

For example, the whole Area 51 thing was nothing more than a facility built to counter what the Russians were doing after the war. I recently read a book where this woman who was the daughter of a man who was high up in the gvt, said the Russians were spying on the Americans and what they found was a Russian spy plane of some type that was very advanced for the time.

That turned into the bodies of two extra terrestrials.....lol

Again, I think we are heading to a place that is going to make some people uncomfortable, myself included but it doesn't mean the illuminati is going to turn us all into mindless zombies.
