So there it is, banks no longer have to keep even a small amount of peoples bank accounts available as cash. They don’t have to fail, they can just say they are out of cash today. Your money is still there, FDIC does not kick in, but they just stop giving out money.

Another move to the New World Order cashless society.
A MAJOR step was taken today by those that really run things.
Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Just because they're no longer required to does not mean they won't. Do they, and you, really expect people to pay for items under $1 with a debit or credit card? Don't forget, time is money, and in my experience it takes a lot longer to swipe my debit card, type my pin, sign whatever I have to sign if needed, and get a receipt, than to hand the cashier a $1 bill and be on my way.
