Let's work together to cut out the middlemen...
Beginning preps for the season of activity for the Citadel Beachhead today involved dealing with Banks.
To my mind Bankers and Lawyers are equals, dual parasitic entities that often work together and would immediately improve the quality of life for most Human Beings if they simply ceased to exist. There was a report I read about how doctors are against patients having too much access to their own medical files. The reason isn't nefarious, it is one of pure self defense: The Lawyer Class would become vampiric at Stephanie Meyer levels upon the Medical Class and put physicians in court for every subjective decision they take.
Did you know that there is a specialty of the Lawyer Class that makes a habit of hanging out in hospitals, under cover, listening for doctors and interns (especially interns because they are great financial targets because of insurance) who may simply let a bit of information loose so the lawyer can bring suit for Disclosure violations? Here's the way it plays out: Physician updates a nurse at the nurses station regarding Patient X. The Lawyer strains and manages to overhear a snippet about Patient X - then runs to Patient X and convinces him/her to sue. That's a special level of Suck, and just one of the reasons medical costs are out of line as a result of the Lawyer Class. Don't even get me started on the Insurance Class of snake oil sales and how they have ruined the medical system in America.
Make no mistake, WROL is in full effect in America, especially in the world of Banksters and Lawyers and Insurers. In the world of Lawyers they actually do argue over things like what the meaning of the word *is* is. So when it comes to being responsible for the finances of some III projects, special measures are in order...and taken.
The other day we had a discussion about metals and an Exchange was suggested, a place where Patriots could trade at Spot to avoid the fees of trading in and out of FRN's. I suggest Kenny's Swap Shop, here.
I have also been considering accepting silver for IIIGear and the 527, and decided to run a test using AR Mags for those who want to avoid PayPal. If you'd like a 10-pack of the AR Mags (top right column of the blog) and want to use silver, just put together the $220 in bullion (no junk silver) based on Spot for the day and send it in. If it works out, I'll expand the silver option to more IIIGear. Make sure you send with a tracking number - tracking numbers are proving very useful these days.
Maybe if enough of us get into the habit of using metals in commerce, we can get more people and businesses aboard, like 2A shops and outfitters, etc.
