    Why not arm bank employees? I’m guessing you have to pass a background check to work at a bank anyway. The weapons can be locked up like the cash when employees go to lunch or home for the day. Banks get robbed because it’s such a safe crime. I would not attempt to rob the foreign-born gentlemen who own and operate my neighborhood convenience store. And nobody robs my house despite unlocked doors as one would be taking a serious risk in doing so.

    Picture the cash as Monopoly money. Now you see why the “authorities” have such little interest in preventing this.

    It’s been clear to anyone who can still grasp reality that our money is nothing but paper, produced at will for any reason, in any amount. Digitized to the max. Why risk real resources on such trivial made-up resources? It takes nothing to replace it at all.

    Until people realize the emperor has had no clothes for about 100 years, they’ll still fear debt and spending. Of course, once the blinders are off, the debt and spending come to a crashing end, so it’s a bit of Occam’s razor.

    Seems like the only ones with any money in Atascadero are the banks and credit unions.

    Maybe all tellers should be required to hand over special money, tight bundles, one of which, can transmit a gps location.
