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.

That’s SOO Coast Hills!!

I agree the ads are cheesy, but the girl is so goddamn cute.

Atascadero-the city of opportunity.


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.

What are you saying? Don’t you know that we’ve been pulled back from the brink and have been growing our economy and recovering for the last four years? We are totally growing stronger economically. Just look around! It’s so evident!

tesla quadrupled

No, did not. 14%.

Hot Stock

Tesla shares have quadrupled this year, as the 10-year-old company reported its first net income in the first quarter and its electric-powered Model S sedan was praised by Consumer Reports magazine as one of the best cars ever made. :

perhaps I have been duped by Business week ?

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

Good idea. They could use something like RFID.
