According to Kristen Mathews, a partner attorney at law firm Proskauer Rose LLP who specializes in privacy and data security, there are reports that the IRS will be checking into individual Facebook and Twitter accounts for improprieties.

Pittsburgh Man Opens Ice Cream Shop/Bank and Refuses to Shut Down

http://www.post-gazette.com

Despite threats of big fines by state banking regulators, the owner of a Shadyside (Pittsburgh, Pa) ice cream shop who opened his own version of a community bank last summer isn't abandoning his mission.

"We are taking on the challenge of transforming the retail banking industry," his website states.
"PA dept of banks threatening us ... we keep growing," he tweeted in late December.

Instead of deposits he is offering "never-ending gift cards." (More hilarious examples of how this ice cream shop/bank owner is getting around regulations in the article).

European Union to criminalize cash transactions over 500 EUROs

http://theintelhub.com

European Union to criminalize cash transactions over 500 EUROs. Banking is the primary tool they use to control us. Free people transacting outside of their control is their biggest fear. As the original Rothschild said in 1838: "Let me issue and control a Nation's money and I care not who makes its laws".

The Keynesian thought patten, writ large

http://www.nytimes.com

Let’s get one thing straight: America is not facing a fiscal crisis. It is, however, still very much experiencing a job crisis. In fact, of course, it’s just the opposite: The danger is that the deficit will come down too much, too fast. And the reasons that might happen are purely political; we may be about to slash spending and raise taxes not because markets demand it, but because Republicans have been using blackmail as a bargaining strategy, and the president seems ready to call their bluff.

Central Banking and War

http://www.huntsvilleliberty.com

Central banking makes longer, more destructive wars possible, by obfuscating the cost of war through inflation. Without central banks, total war might not be possible, and would be far less likely.

$7M Gold found in dead man's home; Gov't takes $750K

http://usnews.nbcnews.com

Walter Samaszko Jr, 69, died at his home in Carson City, Nev., with $200 in a bank account, but as officials later discovered, he had about $7 million stored neatly around his home. According to the coroner, Samaszko had been dead for at least a month, dying of heart problems. Cleanup crews found boxes of gold in the garage, at which point, "we took the house apart,” said Carson City clerk-recorder Alan Glover. As for who can lay claim to the riches -- Glover said the IRS will take $750,000 -- and that the rest will likely go to a first cousin.

Jail time for refusing to comply with mandatory key disclosure hasn’t occurred in the United States yet. But, it’s already happening in jurisdictions such as the UK, where a 33-year-old man was incarcerated for refusing to turn over his decryption keys and a youth was jailed for not disclosing a 50-character encryption password to authorities.

The Man Who Quit Money

http://lifeinc.today.msnbc.msn.com

Daniel Suelo hasn't made a penny in 12 years. He hasn't spent a penny either. He is the subject of the book "The Man Who Quit Money," by Mark Sundeen. In 2000, Suelo had $30 to his name. He left the money in a phone booth and never looked back. Since then, Suelo has lived on public lands, foraging in dumpsters and canyons for food. He welcomes the generosity of others. He doesn't pay taxes. Doesn't accept any form of government welfare. And appears relatively happy. "He is not suggesting or encouraging that anyone else live like him," Sundeen told Brown.
