So it is with great interest to the American people that a new partnership being formed on Jan. 13 between the NSA and the major U.S. financial institutions to counter global hacking crime, could allow the government access to, and surveillance of, personal and business accounts residing in these institutions.
According to the NSA in a statement regarding this new partnership, they declined any specifics, but stated they intend to work in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.

Good point. Though to profile somebody for having 60$ bucks in their pocket.. Seems a bit hard to stick. They'd have to have some other reason to be profiled, no?

Damned if you do, damned if you don't. Carrying cash is becoming more and more of a red flag for law enforcement profiling these days. I think the solution is moving to local banks not affiliated (to the extent that major banks are) with such draconian measures.
