You make an interesting point I never thought about, if rather then keeping your cash in an actual account, but rather in a safety deposit box, would you have access to that box even if the bank collapsed?
Yeah, the state of affairs in the U.S. is bad from what I can tell - no matter what the experts are saying about it. If you look at some countries in the Middle East, they are seeming positively coherent compared to the current state of affairs in the U.S., that's my opinion.
I think the situation in the U.S. is extremely bad, but the problem is, it is all potential energy that hasn't been realized - when the energy is released, it is going to shock the "experts" who haven't been paying attention.
Let's take the example of free speech. One side (the Democrats, actually) decided that certain speech was not free anymore. That did *not* cause people to change their minds, I don't see how it possibly could, instead it caused people to take their concerns underground and away from the mainstream - this is much worse.
It may be possible to fix some of these issues, but that is wishful thinking, in my opinion, in fact, I think even with the most positive attitude we will find our country headed towards societal collapse, this is all opinion based on my wide array of experiences, so I don't have anything else to back it up at the moment, sorry -
Yep because at www.thedailyheadlinenews.com... there are letters from chase to their customers published that say you can still "receive" international wire transfers, but you cannot "send" wires Domestic OR Internationally via a saving account. that's what the actual letters say from Chase. On the Checking account side, chase says they will not allow international wiring via their bank at all.
