The answer is an obvious YES. However, the more serious question might be, is this really a good thing?
Credit cards, debit cards, Apple Pay, Bitcoins, PayPal and other methods to replace cash are more than just commonplace; they are the only way to purchase goods and services in some places.
Scandinavians Leading the Way
Denmark, Norway and Sweden, are leading the global trend towards a cashless society and could be doing away with cash altogether in the very near future.
We all heard this on all kinds of media from TV to blogs to chat rooms during the shooting at a Planned Parenthood Clinic in Colorado, and many of us were silent on the matter. It would be easy to say in hindsight, we were simply waiting for the facts before we said something, and maybe for some that is true.
Nevertheless, how many did not say anything because we were scared to death it was true? I know I was worried that this person would be armed with an AR of some type giving the grabbers more fuel for their fires.
However, out of all those identifying words in the title of this piece, the only ones that are 100% true are “Wacko” and possibly “White” (we do not have any DNA test results to confirm or deny that although he does appear to be white).
What We Know Now
While ISIS has not officially claimed responsibility for the attacks at the time of this writing, witnesses at the Bataclan concert hall said the terrorists burst in and opened fire while shouting “Allah Akbar” (God is Great) and “this is for Syria”. ISIS however has applauded the attacks on Twitter.
ISIS leaders have recently called for this type of small, coordinated attacks as opposed to the larger 9/11 style attacks. At least six shootings and three explosions took place in Paris tonight.
Last week, we published a post about the types of information your child’s school records and stores in electronic databases. Included among the records of your child’s grades and performance, there are notes about behavior, political beliefs, and even your home life – and according to the government, it’s perfectly legal to gather and store all of that private information without your knowledge or consent.
But how are they getting that kind of data?
The answer is straight out of the history books.
All over the country, individual cities are taking it upon themselves to enact gun control that is stricter than then the laws of their own state, this creates confusion and special problems for those who still believe in the right to keep and bear arms. Here are just a few of the local governments gone wild.
What Does Your Child’s School Know About You?
Would you be comfortable with your child’s school keeping information about your voting habits? What about your family’s income level and personal details about your marital status?
What if the school then shared that personal information with private companies – without your consent, or even your knowledge?
It sounds ridiculous, but that’s exactly what public schools are doing, and have been doing for quite some time.
The Liberal Lie
We keep hearing the same thing; they do not want to take our guns. We are just gun nuts that have mental issues and persecution problems. They just want to register our guns, so they know where they are, so the kids can be safer.
However, history tells a different story, every time a gun registration scheme has been implemented, a gun confiscation occurred sometime after. I do not just mean the history I have shared before; I mean it is happening right now in this country.
