Bank runs make my paranoia meter´s needle tick higher...  I guess I will take a few thousand more out of the bank when I get back. But, what to do with it?

Keep in a fire proof safe. FRN's will command respect for

many months if we had bank runs here. The sheeple will take some

time to grasp the reality of paper value. Physical FRN's are

a very small portion of money supply, even if they crank

up the real presses. Hell the mint can't keep with silver

eagles. I've got a good supply of "junk" silver, 90% quarters

How you gonna break an oz of Silver for purchasing things

if it's worth 50 plus dollars.

It will spread like a wildfire. The people realize that these dictators have looted the nation and want to preserve tehir wealth in any way they can.

The same thing needs to happen here in America. Shut the fuckers down.

What a clusterfuck. We can see how much of finances is based on agreements. Who is the central bank? Who owns the nation's gold reserves? Who prints the money? Who can leave the country with any wealth in their pocket?

Thank goodness, in America we can answer all these questions clearly. /sarc

Now I know where all the chocolate easter bunnies are being held. Some people say the bank vaults are empty of chocolate and that there are only foil wrapped turds shaped as chocolate bunnies inside the vaults. Hmmm.....

Careful, some of those bunnies might really be chocolate-covered tungsten! :>D

Interesting article on these bank runs: political unrest is being engineered in Muslim dominated countries to benefit Western banks:

"Islamic banks have been eating into Rothschild profits in the Middle East because: they don’t charge interest (Shariah Law), they are growing very rapidly among the world’s exploding Muslim populations, and (in these catastrophic economic times) they are more stable than western banks."

Oooooh, a bank-run thread. I'll add my anecdotal experience. I live in Mexico. A couple weeks ago I sent my señorita into a large Banamex bank branch in Tijuana to pick up about 6000 pesos (about $500) in cash that I had transferred in. There was a long queue of people waiting, and a bank employee came out and announced that they had run out of money and would only be accepting deposits. Once their cash supply was replenished they would resume processing withdrawals. They went down the line of grumbling people and asked for any deposits. After about a half-hour they had enough money to resume normal operation and my señorita got her money. When she told me the story I was flabbergasted. How would a large bank run out of cash? (Banamex is part of Citigroup.) Why would they admit it? And why would people standing in line with cash be willing to part with it at that point? Simply amazing. True story, though.

Let's see:

Option 1: An IOU from the Bank backed by Citi, OR;

Option 2: Cash in your pocket on the sidewalk in Tijuana.

I suppose the idea is that the Bank will strong-arm the next depositor to get you your money. It's a gamble. They must have a lot of faith in the thugs at the Bank, or maybe in our thugs here in the US.

It matters not the country you live in, ask yourself which do you trust the most: Your hard-earned savings in a bank or gold and silver bars in your hands.

A big issue here is the corruption of the Cote d'Ivoire elections, which were basically run by the "international community" specifically to install the IMF's little Uncle Tom, who goes by the name Outarra.

Gbagbo is no saint - he was Uncle Sam's boy only a decade ago - but this campaign is about White Capital destroying Black Africa.

Divide and conquer, using religion whenever possible.  Same as it ever was.

Not sure how relevant this might be, however the fact that China has been showing such great interest in the African continent might make this report worth passing on...

Abuja (AFP) Feb 11, 2011 - West African bloc ECOWAS criticised South Africa on Friday over a decision to send a "warship" to Ivory Coast, saying it was not notified of the move during the country's post-election crisis. James Victor Gbeho, president of the ECOWAS commission, this week said South Africa had sent the ship to Ivory Coast, but Pretoria's ambassador here said it was a support vessel dispatched to the region and not meant for any military purpose. The 15-member Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has threatened to use force to oust Ivory Coast strongman Laurent Gbagbo if peaceful efforts to have him step down fail.

Keeping savings in a bank is Snooki-stupid.
