Another reader sent an image via email from a North Carolina Walmart.
Susan, At Walmart this afternoon outside of CLT, NC. As I walked to the checkout- I was surprised to see all the check out lines with physical cashiers all backed up. I went to the self-check out conveyor belts and almost all were empty. Now I know why. No cash back or using cash. I usually try to always get extra cash back when shopping as it provides “walking around” currency as well as allows me to build up my physical stash but not today. As all self check outs the signs said no cash back
Apparently Whole Foods is doing the same thing, refusing cash purchases.
As the reader who sent the email pointed out, these establishments can do this legally as explained by the Federal Reserve:
Is it legal for a business in the United States to refuse cash as a form of payment? Section 31 U.S.C. 5103, entitled "Legal tender," states: "United States coins and currency [including Federal reserve notes and circulating notes of Federal reserve banks and national banks] are legal tender for all debts, public charges, taxes, and dues." This statute means that all United States money as identified above is a valid and legal offer of payment for debts when tendered to a creditor. There is, however, no Federal statute mandating that a private business, a person, or an organization must accept currency or coins as payment for goods or services. Private businesses are free to develop their own policies on whether to accept cash unless there is a state law which says otherwise.
Ready for the mark of the beast? How many years have we seen the media scream "conspiracy theory" when an Independent Media outlet claimed that the NWO, Deep State, whatever you want to call the shadow government, wanted a "cashless society?"
IT IS ALL ABOUT CONTROL
All it took was a pandemic for politicians to use in order to enforce more and more control over the American populace.
The hell with the constitution they think, we can force you to live under a tyrannical rule, because we say it is in your best interest.
As one of the Independent Media that encouraged precautions, gloves, face masks, stay away from large groups, we firmly believe Americans have the right to choose whether or not they use cash, social distance, visit friends, go to the beach, keep their businesses open, by making informed decisions.
Looking around at the signage, the forced compliance of face wear, which on its face is unconstitutional because the manner a person outfits themselves is a form of "freedom of expression."
That does not only include what clothing to wear, but what clothing not to wear as long as it is not breaking the indecency laws of the state, meaning not walking around without pants and underwear, etc...
When this overreach has been challenged in court, most instances sided with freedom. The lockdown on churches and services in multiple states has been declared illegal, unconstitutional, blocking a persons right to religious freedom.
Anyone think that if Hillary Clinton had been elected and appointed 200 judges, in just her first term, that we would see any rulings that protected religious freedom rather than government overreach?
The scariest part of everything we are seeing now is that it only took six months for state leaders to strip the constitutional rights from millions of Americans to the point that we have to take the state and/or leader to court in order to restore those rights.
They are trying to prepare us to live under a tyrannical rule, claiming this is the "new normal."
Americans should not comply. As we have maintained from the beginning, people should be informed and make their own decisions as to what precautions and protections they feel they need individually.
There is nothing that can be done about an privately owned store refusing cash, or cash back and demanding exact change, or mandating masks, or where you are to stand and how close to others you can be, except to refuse to shop there, take your money elsewhere. If enough people did that, just on principle, those stores which depend on revenue to stay open, would change their tune pretty fast.
It is all about control. Whether it is state leaders or privately owned businesses, the more control we allow them, the more they try to take.
BOTTOM LINE - FIGHT OR FOREVER LOSE YOUR FREEDOMS
We aren't huge on calling for a boycott every day or week or month or even year, but individuals do have the right to choose where they shop, who they support and whether they wish to reward an establishment with their purchases if said establishment doesn't respect your freedoms.
Now is the time to draw that line in the sand. Even if like me, you take the mask precaution in public because..... well, I don't want to die again, it was a very unpleasant experience, you should still be willing to stand up for those that are informed, and make a choice not to wear a mask.
If we do not stand for each other no one else will stand for us.
Ways to fight back could include going elsewhere if you see a sign demanding you comply with a mask requirement, or a refusal to accept your hard-earned cash.
Just walk out, and if asked, tell them you will go somewhere that respects your freedom.
Share the name of the establishment with friends, or online, so others can also fight the tyranny.
Bottom line is that if these businesses or state leaders are allowed to control more of your life than they already do, they will continue to take until America looks and feels like China.
