    Georgia To Seize Dormant Bank Accounts: “Government is Going to Grab it”

    You’re probably thinking that inflationary devaluation of your savings or paying negative interest rates on cash deposits is about as far as government is willing to go in its efforts to keep funding its debt-laden endeavors. They certainly wouldn’t consider touching the bank accounts of hard working Americans. Only the Europeans have the audacity to go after the savings of the average depositor.

    Well, the Europeans and apparently now the Georgians, too. And we’re not talking about the western backed country that went to war with Russia in recent years.

    We’re talking about the U.S. state that claims “Wisdom, Justice, Moderation” as its motto.

    According to Simon Black at Sovereign Man, the State of Georgia has taken the unprecedented step of lowering the threshold on inactive or dormant bank accounts to just twelve months. What that means to average Georgians is that if you fail to utilize your account within one year your deposited funds will be confiscated by the state.

    Though all 50 states have regulations pertaining to dormant bank accounts, Black says that Georgia takes the grand prize in how swiftly they’re prepared to go after your money.

    Georgia’s Disposition of Unclaimed Properties Act sets the threshold as low as one year.

    In other words, if you have a checking account in Georgia that you haven’t touched in twelve months, the state government is going to grab it.

    So much for setting aside money for a rainy day and having the discipline to never touch it.

    If you’ve locked away money for your children’s savings or unforeseen emergencies, your government might be sharpening its knives ready to dig in.

    And just like central bank policies punish savers with interest rates that don’t come close to keeping up with inflation, these policies provide disincentives for people to be responsible and save money.

    It’s just another example of how the entire system is rigged against the individual… and all the more reason to divorce oneself from it. Physical gold, anyone?

    In 2013 Australia passed similar legislation, but their threshold was set at three years.

    “In the last 12-months since the legislation was passed,” says Simon Black, “the Australian government has seized a whopping 80,000 accounts totaling A$360 million.” The implications of the new law are staggering. In that single year Australia confiscated more money than in the previous five decades combined.

    Governments on the local, state and federal level are getting desperate amid underfunded retirement plans and bloated budgets. Going forward they’ll have no choice but to get more and more creative at how they “generate” revenue.

    We hope you’re keeping an eye on that IRA. You haven’t really touched that for twelve months either, have you? Congress has already held hearings on whether or not they should reappropriate retirement savings and pool them into a government run investment fund. You know, kind of like Obamacare.

    Or how about that parcel of land you own out on the countryside for weekend camping trips and hunting? You haven’t been out there for a while, nor have you really built anything on it, which must mean you’re not using it anymore…

    There is historical evidence that suggests that government, when left with no way to pay for their massive budgets and spending, will resort to extraordinary methods to ensure the money keeps coming in to State coffers.

    As the Roman empire was collapsing because of unfunded pension liabilities for its military the government devalued its currency by removing 90% of the silver content from its coins. Roosevelt confiscated gold during the Great Depression and imposed stiff penalties for those who didn’t comply. Struggling to keep up with its massive budget deficits, last year France passed their “millionaire tax,” which authorized the government to levy a 75% tax on companies that pay out more than €1 million in salaries.

    Devising innovative ways to separate the citizenry from its money is business as usual within legislative institutions.

    Georgians who haven’t touched their accounts since last year should either withdraw their money or, as government officials and banks would prefer, go spend it on something and put that cash to work. Otherwise you face the real possibility of having those assets seized.

    As for the residents of the other forty-nine states, keep an eye on what your respective state legislators are doing.

    Chances are a lot of light bulbs in Capital cities around the country just popped on.

      Dang. They’re just doing it right out in the open now aren’t they?

      • Doing it out in the open in Aussie anonymous. Our Gubbermint just “acquired” $360 mill by grabbing all the money in any account that hasn’t been used for 3 years.

        There are bigger thieves in Government than there have ever been on the streets.

          Well, heck.

          Why not do it out in the open?

          There are plenty of people who would love to justify their government job no matter how immoral and unlawful, as opposed to illegal, a rule or law like this is. After handing it over to these government agencies, the politicians can do what they always do.

          Blame the whole thing on “unintended consequences.”

              1. The votes are often electrically counted with no paper trail to verify

              2. “The lesser of two evils” concept. It seems the choice is always between the gallows and the guillotine. Not much of a choice in my opinion. I like option “C”. You can just guess as to my meaning.

                Bank accounts are simply not safe. I was talking to some total retard the other day about having your money in a bank, and this idiot said it was the safest place because the government backs it up if the bank fails. I asked the cretin what about when the government fails, blank stare then the statement the government is the strongest in the world and will never fail. Asked simple simon about the ballooning super debt. Response, there has always been a debt and their is no limit to how much the government can borrow. AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!, how can anyone reach this level of ignorance??????????

                This is the naiveness and “dullardism” of the public and how dangerous it is that the masses are mind controlled by the government. The masses “THINK” that precious metals are crazy and that storing up food and supplies is ridiculous. Got an asinine comment the other day from someone that said storing up food and supplies went out with the fears of the cold war. I just can’t believe how stupid people have become. I mention regular emergencies to people how they can lose power for weeks, and people say too often that is what FEMA and Red Cross is for. They wonder why so many of us that prepare feel that most of humanity is doomed based on the sole fact that people have shifted into the gear DUMB SH$%.

                  “FATCA is four years old but it is still being ramped up for its big worldwide rollout July 1, 2014. Foreign banks must hand over the DETAILS of American account holders … or face serious repercussions.”

                  “With disclosures, prosecutions and summonses, the IRS is getting quicker, better and more complete information than ever.”

                  “After foreign institutions identify U.S. account holders, FATCA requires the institutions to impose a 30% tax on payments or transfers to any who refuse to step up and get into full U.S. compliance.

                  At first, Foreign financial institutions (FFIs) must report account numbers, balances, names, addresses, and U.S. taxpayer identification numbers. For U.S.-owned foreign entities, they must report the name, address, and U.S. TIN of each substantial U.S. owner.”

                  “In addition to requiring yet more disclosures for US taxpayers who have foreign accounts, FATCA also mandates every foreign financial institution on the planet to share customer information with the IRS.”

                  @ slingshot. ;). Makes you wonder when someone gets that close to a rattlesnake that can be 8 foot long and a bite distance, at least 1/2 the lenghth of the snake’s body, of at least 4 feet and a coral snake just how much of their brain is working. Not too many people are bitten by a snake with a neurotoxin the coral snake and a hemotoxin the rattlesnake. Stupid is as stupid does and the population is radidly growing that have lost all common sense. This should get a jack ass award of some sort.

                  BI, this goes back to a conversation with a lawn maintenance man I had last year. We shortly talked of the economy and he ended with “I don’t know why the government just doesn’t print more money to pay off the debt. I didn’t even try on that one. I just politely said goodbye. This shit is all around us now. We are doomed.

                • Be informed says:

                  @ Gonetoolong and braveheart. I have once or twice actually pulled out some of my hair with the shear stupidity of the “fellow” humans we walk amoungst us. For someone to say print more money to pay off the debt is as incredible as it sounds, quite popular an asinine view with many. There is an idea out there for the government to print about 18 one trillion dollar BO coins that the government would use to pay off the debt. IF this ever happens everyone that has precious metals will be very happy that they invested in them. Those with food and other supplies even happier. Reminds me of those cartoon characters with that sh#$ all smile on their faces and glazed over eyes to anyone that would even contemplate happily printing up money to pay off something. Like Al Bundy said to idiot Peg Bundy, sending your husband rocketing to the poor house.

                John T. Flynn’s eight points considered to be the main marks of the fascist state.

                Point 1. The government is totalitarian because it acknowledges no restraint on its powers.

                Point 2. Government is a de facto dictatorship based on the leadership principle.

                Point 3. Government administers a capitalist system with an immense bureaucracy.

                Point 4. Producers are organized into cartels in the way of syndicalism.

                Point 5. Economic planning is based on the principle of autarky

                Point6. Government sustains economic life through spending and borrowing.

                Point 7. Militarism is a mainstay of government spending.

                Point 8. Military spending has imperialist aims.

                It sure sounds like a familiar tune to me.

                  As I see it, IMNTBHO (in my never to be humble opinion, The USA has been and is a fascist state. It has been happening slowly over the decades, until the final overthrow of the government and the constitution with the election of antichrist Obama. The Republic that once was the USA is dead. And the irony of it all is that it was a reply of what happened in 1930’s Germany.
                  It is now only a question of when “the government” attacks its own citizens as enemies of the state. If you will not submit to their rule over you, they will kill you.
                  Here is a very unsettling thought for all you: is it possible that the “greatest generation” that suffered, sacrificed so much, came home wounded or died to stop the Nazis did so in vain? That every thing they did was for nothing. The “greatest generation” produced the worst generation ever, as the baby boomers rejected it all.

                  Syndicalism means economic control by the producers. Capitalism is different. It places by virtue of market structures all control in the hands of the consumers. In the good ‘ole US of A, we’ve seen the giant banks, pharmaceutical firms, insurers, car companies, Wall Street banks and brokerage houses, and quasi-private mortgage companies enjoying vast privileges at the expense of “we the people.” They have all joined with the State in living a parasitical existence at our expense.

Banks are predator lenders hell bent to crush your wealth in bogus fees, ATM charges, negative wealth growth. NEVER Purchase a safety Deposit Box in a Bank. You are just asking to be a victim as they will steal your Box assets when they decide to, and your contents will then belong to them. And you will have to prove what you had in your Box.

          This article only gives one example of bank accounts. I have worked for a companys that from time to time has money on the books that needs to be returned to customers. Sometimes it takes 5+ years to turn the money over to the state and every state is different.

          California is the most strict and have very unique approach to this matter. You basically give them the funds and they contact the party advising them to contact you.

          I see this as a way to help keep companies in line and either give the money back to the correct party or give it to the state.

          Again, not everything is a conspiracy and the fearporn sometimes gets old.

          • Barn Cat says:

            Right. California takes the money and contacts the owner of the gift card. You don’t really believe they do that, do you?

            • Indy Colts says:

              I may have mis stated. California notifies the person they have unclaimed funds from our business and gives them a window to contact us to claim or it will be turned over to the state.

      • Vicky says:

        Yeah, and it’s taxable, too. Our bank interest earned came up to $2.47 last year, and our tax preparer said it had to be rounded up to $10.00. So we paid taxes on $7.53 that we didn’t even make. Know the amount is small, but it’s the principle of the thing.

        • Miss DeeDee says:

          Vicky,
          I’d hate to give you misinformation but an accountant once told me that any interest under $10 is considered non reportable or optional reportable.

        • Marie says:

          I don’t know what idiot tax preparer you go to but there is no requirement to round up interest to $10. You round to the nearest dollar or put in the exact amount. Your choice was either $2.00 or $2.47. At $2.00 you would owe about 50 cents based on what you wrote above. Your tax preparer owes you $7.00.

      It is my understanding that Georgia has huge numbers of illegal aliens working in the chicken plants, as well as equally high numbers of American citizen welfare recipients.

      The standard for many years has been that no activity in a checking account for three years results in closure of the account and dispersal of all funds to the account holder at the address of record.

      This is unusual, to be sure.

      Have to wonder if it has anything to do with the illegals, although typically they do not and can not have bank accounts due to their illegal status and concurrent inability to provide the identification required since the advent of the Patriot Act.

      Georgia is generally a conservative state, apart from the welfare roles.

      This is interesting to say the least.

        Being bank-naive…didn’t it use to be that if a bank had depositors, they could loan out a percentage of that deposit money to other customers? If that is the case, doesn’t that confiscation impact a bank’s ability to lend (not that they are anyway currently)?

        Things must be seriously bad.

        • davidnrobyn says:

          As a matter of fact, I understand that banks can legally lend out 900% (yes, you read that right) of the funds they have on deposit based on 10% fractional-reserve lending. That is to say, they only need to have 10% of the money they’ve lent out on hand as “reserve”. The ramifications of this are enormous. Basically, it means that when banks lend money, most of what they lend out is created from thin air. There was actually a court case in Minnesota where a guy was taken to court in foreclosure and he convinced the judge that based on fractional-reserve lending that there was actually no “consideration” for the house and therefore he was under no obligation to repay the bank “loan”. This was based on testimony from the banker himself who said under oath that the money they lent the buyer didn’t previously exist. Google it. The case was buried, of course, so that the people wouldn’t catch on…

      This is why I have long thought all the traditional wealth storage strategies are deeply flawed: all based on the premise the state will keep its grubby hands off your land, money and investment assets. But I am afraid this is mistaken and ignores two things: one, historical precedent: in British common law and Napoleonic Code: both have always allowed for the state in a crisis to grab whatever resources it needs to ensure its survival; two, the current state-mindset at present: both the US and the UK have been on war footing since 2001. This means all sorts of legislation was passed that gives the government extraordinary powers. Mostly, they have gone softly-softly but as the crisis deepens, and the fact they will need to go to a Total War footing in order to tackle the multiple threats of Russia, China and the Middle East (al-Qaeda is only growing in power), this means ALL wealth is fair game and the best pluckings will come from the upper middle class: the professor with two houses, the mid-level investment bank dude, the successful lawyer, the doctor and dentist, the corporate dude, the school principal, etc.

      And another monkey in the works is new technology: the state has never before been able to so closely watch the population, so don’t think you will be able to hide your summer cottage from the tax man. They have already beta tested using drones to map properties and to ferret out any property that is not being taxed.

      I talked to several people the other day about all that is going on and every one of them looked at me like I was nuts. Not one of them had any idea of what is going on in the world. One of them asked me “How do you know all this?” That tells me that many people still watch the propaganda outlets called “News” and believe what they are being fed.

      Prepare folks, it’s coming.

        It’s incredibly frustrating, isn’t it? At least one of them showed some curiosity – the people I talk to tend to get angry or tell me I worry too much. I tell them they don’t need to worry, there are things they can do to make things easier for themselves when it happens, and they don’t even want to hear the suggestions!

            Voluntary compliance… don’t volunteer.

            Constitutional basis for government… the US Constitution is NO Authority (it’s just four pieces of paper written by a bunch of dead white guys who never even signed it. Read “No Treason: Constitution of No Authority” by Lysander Spooner).

            Don’t play by their rules. In fact, don’t play their game: it’s set up to make you think you have a say (representation) and have relative control (a vote), but you don’t… it’s all a grand illusion.

            If we stop playing the game, then we take away their power. If enough people just IGNORED the psychopaths calling themselves “government”, then it’s GAME OVER. Their numbers are so small in comparison to the population at-large, that they don’t have the ability to force the masses to play the game.

      So what I want to know is when are all you keyboard warriors going to start the revolution? They’re openly stealing our money from us now. They can take our land if they claim they have a good purpose for it. They have drones flying over our heads all day every day. Our law enforcement agencies are supplied like the military now. They are openly letting illegal immigrants across the border by the tens of thousands now without any fear of repercussion. Half of the country is on the government dole. They have already named you and me as terrorist threats.

          Obama is the worst president in the history of the country, and I disagree with every one of his policies, but the one thing that can be said on his behalf is that he was elected by a majority of Americans.
          I agree with democratic-style elections.

          If we ever have a revolution in America, what do you think would happen to elections? They would be gone. They would be extinct. Revolution would mean the end of our style of government, which is the greatest the world has ever seen.

          If we have a revolution, and if the government happened to be overthrown, the winners would then be in control. You could say goodbye to America as we have always known it.

      regarding the situation in Iraq
      here is a post from Seahorse over on Silent Country

      “This is PO. If you all will remember, in 1998 Colin Campbell wrote a book The Coming Oil Crisis (I think that was the title). He stated the world was intentionally forbidding the development and sale of Iraqi oil to allow their fields to rest as a world PO reserve. He said at some point in time a “crisis” would ensue to open those fields up to development. About that same timeCheney and his crew formed the PRoject for a New American Century to make this century the American century and specifically stated a “Pearl Harbor” type of event was needed. Once in office they formed an energy commission of private interests headed by Cheney. Though lawsuits were filed to find out who and what this commission was doing, The courts protected Cheney from disclosure citing “executive privilege.” A few documents that were released showed they were focused on Iraqi oil fields. Just a few years later, 911 was the Peal Harbor event used to justify the Iraq invasion, even though there was no link between Sadam’s and 911. So this Iraq conflict was and is about the last remaining oil. We’ve seen several other oil crisis events since that time in Libya, Georgia, Ukraine, Now the South China sea”

      PO=peak oil

      I think his post sums things up nicely

      the question is
      will the US start air strikes as the Iraqi government has requested?

      will we send troops back in

      the world has to have that oil

      • Poon Tang says:

        Why doesn’t “our government” just ask their good allies, the Saudis, to stop funding and arming the Sunnis in Iraq? Why would we send aircraft to bomb the guys the Saudis back? The Saudis want the Shiites to die. Saddam had the radicals under control. So did Assad in Syria. So did Gaddafi in Libya. Our foreign policy in the Middle East and North Africa seems to be the policy of whatever the Saudis want. I used to think it was the Israelis that controlled our foreign policy, but it seems there are more players than just the Jews. We, the Americans, don’t seem to have a voice in the matter.

      • Colin Campbell…there’s a name I haven’t heard for a while.

        A good documentary to watch that lays all this out is “A Crude Awakening…The Oil Crash”. It features Campbell and former congressman Roscoe Bartlett (often featured in SHTFplan articles) among other commentators. It was made in 2006 but is relevant to what is happening now.

        I would say it’s on YouTube somewhere and if you have Link teevee, they often run it on there.

        God’s promise to Abraham, the patriarch of the 12 tribes of Israel.

        “I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse.”
        Genesis 12:2-3

          After studying that verse go to the other verses and list them for us so we can see all the blessings the Lord God promised and heaped on Israel. Then tell me, out of all those blessings just which ones have came true for that little country Israel and the jewish religion that denies Jesus Christ, or are all those blessings still waiting to happen in the future?

          God does not lie, KY Mom, and all those blessings HAVE NOT HAPPENED TO DATE TO that little country Israel.

          Seems to me those blessings were heaped mostly on America and all of those blessings have been fulfilled, on Gods Israel, countries whose people were mostly Christians. No religion can deny Jesus Christ and have all those blessings given to them.

          • KillOrBeKilled says:

            FOOD FOR THOUGHT…

            Yahweh GOD divorced Israel. Jeremiah 3:8.

            Israel/the Jews rejected and then conspired to kill and constructively did kill the Messiah/Christ. “Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.” Acts 2:36.

            Jesus warned us about the tares being planted by the enemy (Satan). Matthew 13:24-30.

            For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel. Romans 9:6.

            Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. Revelation 3:9.

            Yahweh’s has a new Israel (a spiritual Israel) upon the Earth, the same is the “Ecclesia of GOD” with Christ as it’s cornerstone and Head.

          source/anti semitism/Jews for Jesus

          Quote:

          “Jews for Jesus maintains that a Jew can keep THEIR religious identity, even after converting to Christianity. Jews for Jesus preach a combination of Judaism and Cheistianity.

          THE TORAH ITSELF ARGUES AGAINST this idea of Judeo-Christian continuation. While all jews are considered members for life, a person who WORSHIPS ANOTHER GOD OR IDOL IS NO LOONGER CONSIDERED A JEW. WORSHIP AS JESUS AS THE SON OF GOD IS CONSIDERED BELIEF IN A FOREIGN GOD AND THE CONVERT WOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED JEWISH.

          THE TORAH DOES NOT TEACH that humans are born with sin — In other words, Jews do not believe that one person, NAMELY JESUS, is capable of repenting for all of humanities sins THROUGH HIS DEATH.

          The MOST IMPORTANT argument against Jews for Jesus is the fact that Jews do NOT believe that the Messiah has arrived. ACCORDING TO THE TORAH, the Messiah must be a decendent of King David. Jews do NOT consider Jesus a direct descendent. Most importantly the Messiah is supposed to bring peace to all humanity. Isaih 2:4 “and all nations shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore”. Jesus’ coming did not bring about peace, and therefore, Jews CANNOT accept Him as the Messiah.

          In response, Jews for Jesus might refer to the 2nd coming of Jesus. The Gospels predict that Jesus will ascend earth again to fulfill his messianic prophesies. OF COURSE, THERE IS NO MENTION OF A SECOND COMING IN THE TORAH. THEREFORE, Jews for Jesus is UNABLE to use Jewish textual evidence to prove Jesus is the Messiah and will come again.

          Many jews are infuriated by Jews for Jesus. In response Jews have created several organizations to combat Jews for Jesus. Jews for Judiasm and Outreach Judiasm fight against missionaries and cults who are seeking to convert Jews.

          MOST IMPORTANTLY THE ISRAELI SUPREME COURT also made clear its feelings for Jews for Jesus as it applies to eligibility for ALIYAH. While Jews are eligible to receive Isreli citizenship, the Supreme Court determined Jews for Jesus ARE NOT ACTUALLY JEWS, AS BELIEF IN JESUS AS THE MESSIAH IS NOT A JEWISH VALUE. Rather they said, “Jews for Jesus marks the clear seperation between Judiasm and Christianity” (1993 final decision).”

          My thoughts:

          Go back through this article and study once again what their Torah argues against “the Judeo-Christian continuance”. Then ask yourself why Bible believing Christians are having the Judeo-Christian bs shoved down our throats when the Jews own bible, the Torah argues against such an intermingling.

          If you cannot be a Christ-believing Christian and be a citizen of Israel according to their supreme court decision (1993), ask yourself what the dual-citizens that are your congressman and senators believe. They cannot believe in Jesus Christ and retain their citizenship. That SHOULD make you aware why a huge percent of your congress could care less about your belief in Jesus Christ and your Christianity. It goes a long way in explaining what is wrong in America and why Jesus Christ is being erased off the face of America.

          Jewish Virtual Library is a site written for Jews and their history. Well worth your time to peruse some of the articles. Be sure and read how ministers like Hagee, Robertson, etc. got caught up in the Judeo-Christian bs and the money they have funneled to support it (your money).

            POG, I suppose you believe that God’s plans for Israel were thwarted beyond his ability to control?

            For God to make promises to Israel, then change his mind because of Israel’s behavior, means that God had no idea what was going to happen when he made those promises.

            FYI, POG, there are many prophecies in the Bible which haven’t yet been fulfilled.
            Do you believe that God has changed his mind about all those too?

                  The very word of Jew is NOT even mentioned in the bible untill aprox 500 Pages after page One of genesis…IE first mention of the word “jew” is in 2nd book of Kings chapter 16 and either verse 6 or 12 if i recall it correct.

                  Abraham, Moses, Jacob Issac and a whole bunch of named persons in the bible were NOT a jew. The word jew at time of Christ days meant BOTH a tribe of judah member AND ANYBODY a resident of jeruselem CITY.

                  Christ and all His apostles came from Gallilee only Judas was from, IN jeruselem! That figures eh! a stinkin Traitor jew Judas!

                They rather keep foaming at mouth and drooling at every mention of jews or israel, and continue their Unquestioned defense regardless how much solid proof and valid documentations provided to them exist. Even Facts From jewish sources that some of us here keep posting has zero bearing. They all but name such jew info sources as LIARS, yet in same breath maintain unquestioned defense of said Liars!

                You just cannot make this stuff Up folks! Now watch for tons of red thumbs as proof how many are fools in deep denial and so hatefull of such Truths as I and several others here post!

                As if Hatred of factual truth is somehow going to make it all just disapear and go away folks!

                I wonder if some of these so delusional ones are actually Teens? Very Young adults? Or just more elderly brainwashed by false preacher types?

                STILL waiting for that bible proof to Bless any jews eh..

                Cue jepordy Tune music while we await amazeing bible verses that say Bless jews!…PKLL is sure to have a few huh? Maybe PKLL is too busy always demanding proofs to ever provide Any herself eh?…BINGO!

        America was the great country even prior to Israel becoming a nation in 1948. We have given them billions of dollars in aid (tribute) each year and it seems like God is cursing us. Why is that Grafi? Should we giving them more money? Have we not buried enough soldiers to help fight their wars? So no, I do not see your “correlation.”

        • Grafique says:

          Mqg25,
          God does not curse anyone. Christ took all punishment for sins on himself.
          Yes, we should advance the causes of Zionism and National Jewish Israel to the utmost of our ability.
          We haven’t fought any of Israel’s wars.

          • Pissed Off Granny says:

            God doesnt curse anyone? Did your Bible study stop before Revelation?

            Or did it even start with Genesis? If God didn’t curse Satan and his seed, Cain, then you dont know what a curse is.

            Jesus will not take on the sins of the sinner who will continue to deny He is the Messiah and that he will be coming back at his second advent.

            Tell me, Grafique, just who are all those people in Revelation that Jesus Christ and his mighty army are coming back to erradicate off the face of the earth forever?

            And if you dont believe there are accursed people read John 8:44.

            • Grafique says:

              POG,
              So when the Bible says, “Behold the Lamb of God which taketh away the sins of the world”, you think it actually says, “part of the world”?

              You really do have a reading-comprehension problem.

              • Pissed Off Granny says:

                Your posts remind me of the attacts and lies that Jesus put up with when he was here on earth. Your ‘chosen’ killed him for telling the truth. You are following in their footsteps, blindly trying to ‘kill’ truth to protect the ‘enemies’ of Christ.

                You will be no hero in the end, Grafique. You will be a zero. Hope you like it where it is warm…….

      I just keep a checking account, and if the govt. wants it, they can have it, it’s usually damn close to being overdrawn anyway. As for the rest, welllll, there is no rest, thanks to ballooning prices and fees, taxes, and surcharges, I can’t even afford to pay attention anymore!!! My hats off to the morons running this country right into the ground, they have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams!

      Wow. What a s**t storm the world is in.

      -Iraq Update: Kurds Take Kirkuk, Al Qaeda Surges Toward Baghdad

      -Iraq lost to Islamic Militants. Who also captured some US Blackhawks and other military equipment.

      -Firefight Underway As Russian “Rebels” Cross Border Into Ukraine

      -POS of the United States ‘trades’ Army deserter for 5 imprisoned Taliban killers.

      -Summer Gas Prices Highest Since 2011 As Oil Hits 9-Month Highs

      -and *now* the government openly STEALS money that belongs to others. They don’t even care to hide their true intentions any longer, folks. It’s in your face, in the open for all to see, yet some still cannot. Simply beyond belief.

      Many thanks to KY mom for posting the Potato Tower links the other day. Make sure you know how to *store* potatoes for long term storage as well, very important!

      A large wooden crate works well as does a super large Rubber made storage bin. You fill either one with CLEAN & DRY ‘wash sand’ This is basically sand box sand that has no organic matter or other materials to break down.
      You bury the potatoes in the container layering them in the sand, not touching each other if possible. If you have a cool dark basement that will work, but a root cellar would be best. That way, you can have fresh potatoes all winter until spring, when you can dig some out of the sand to replant!

      • KY Mom says:

        Socrates,

        Thank you!

        This may seem like a stupid question.

        If using a rubber maid container, is it better to put the cover on the storage bin?

        • KY Mom says:

          Socrates,

          It has been a long day.

          To clarify that last post…when storing potatoes for long term in a Rubbermaid storage bin with sand, should the cover be placed on the rubber maid storage bin?

          I have never stored potatoes for longer than a month. In the winter I have always stored potatoes in a room (we shut the heat vents) that is cold.

          My husband is building a storage area on the north side of a hill near the house. So, hopefully we will be able to store potatoes now on a long term basis.

      Is there a disconnect here or is it just me?

      If the collapse comes out federal reserve note become the equivalent of toilet paper. So since that is probably the case, does it really matter if the state or fed govts. really take it? Perhaps this is a rhetorical question, I’m not sure.

      I’ve been trying to either spend what I can while its still got value. I’ve pulled the rest out out, except for just enough to cover the minimum requirement for the account. If the state confiscates it tomorrow, I’ve already written it off as a loss the convenience of using bill-pay.

    36. CS Murphy says:

      Interesting, is it not, how these little known tidbits are codified and put away for a rainy day, finding their way out into the open only for special occasions. Now, what IS that special occasion this time? Check your own states. Thanks for the heads-up.

      Pretty damning evidence is you ask me..
      also go down and listen to the Fox lady reporter and her story..

      if this slides thru this admin..and no one big and high up swings for this, than our rule of law fo everyone is subject, and as far as im concerned its time to “let it roll”

      We the subjected will not lay down for this, we also will not be falsely prosecuted for showing this , or for forcing our laws upon those that think they do not apply to them..its time to change this way of doing buiz..its time they are ALL held accountable ..they have sworn testimony that is making them all liers and perjury on the stand ..treason has got to be delt with even if this country is falling apart, and no time like the present

      • Them Guys says:

        Since at least 90+% of the culprits charged will be jewish perp criminals, be sure you have NO that is ZERO jewdeo christian idiots like grafalinsky or pkll on any Juries at comming Neurenburg trials II.

        Because if you are looking for Convictions of said perp criminals and Traitors….These jewdeo christo jew firsters will always claim they are totally Innocent of ALL charges bar none!

        If he were still alive, and you put Leon Trotsky, jew birth name Lev Bronstien, ON Trail for the over TEN Million White Christians he mass murdered back in the russian revlot aka jewish revolution against christian russians in 1918…Once these type jewdeo christian oxymorons discovered Trotskys jewish…They in unisone will scream out “NOT GUILTY”! thinking they are blessing a jew!!

        No matter how bad the crime, how vile the evils done, how abjectly wrong these crimes were and are…Any jewish perps charged will be set free by these delusional jewdeo christian Oxymoron folks.

        Then they will await mass blessings from the sky due to their form of bless them jews no matter what jews do wrong.

        As if a Righteous and Just God would ever bless such phony false beliefs or actions eh. It all only works out like that if you ignore 99% of the entire new testement and new covenant of christianity and Christ. Which is exactly how these deluded fools function.

      “So the US is about to unleash hell against the same Al Qaeda extremists it was arming across the border in Syria? Score one more for US foreign policy. Meanwhile, the one person who benefits the most from rising crude prices, that would be Putin for those who still don’t get it, is laughing all the way to the bank.”

      good luck figuring out this mess

      ONE thing if for certain
      oil production and export is the main objective

      its really sick who we have in these positions in our government

    41. Just for everybody’s information: even the offshore tax-havens have gotten into the act! Of course, even offshore tax-havens’ governments are badly managed and short of money… I have written about this theme on my blog on several occasions – most recently, earlier this month, on privatisation. Other posts are easily found in the blog’s Archives; the titles usually identify the theme.

      Here is a link to our Monetary Authority’s website (we don’t have a Central Bank, being a British colony). Note the second paragraph, which says “… the Governor in Cabinet can declare any other type of financial institution to be an account provider if he deems that to be in the national interest.”

      of course I vehemently disagree with this ridiculously presumptuous policy, but if it’s your account, simply set up one payment per year minimum (or perhaps more preferably, a monthly payment) for something like your auto insurance policy, to be electronically withdrawn from your account.

      Uh new news? Texas 35 years ago. I worked for a couple that lost life savings for not touching old account. 7 years back then.
      If you think this is something new – sorry to wake you. Even in the peoples republic of California. Think your state is the exception ? Sorry again its all 50 states. Think I,m talking out of my Obama, read your checking , savings , or CD account legalize.
      You may not have read it all. You signed it. Now don’t that give you a warm fuzzy feeling all over?

    48. Just to clarify, if this is to operate like dormant accounts schemes elsewhere, the bank in question will write to you at your last known address asking you if you want to keep the account open. If you reply in the affirmative, then the dormant accounts procedure does not kick in. Even if you don’t reply, it does not mean you have permanently forfeited when the account is considered dormant. You retain a legal claim to the funds that may be exercised by you or your heirs at any time. So government will at most be borrowing your money, not thieving it outright.

      • mike (cactus) says:

        This was 35 years ago. What I remember was they left no forwarding address and the bank said sorry. If my understanding of this was incorrect / my apologies. Not a politico. I admit any errors. Sadly they were old 35 years ago and the man later died of cancer so no contact is possible.
        It seams that my political dreams are screwed. Damn honesty.

      ALL 50 states steal bank accounts, treasuries, safe deposit boxes, etc…California was getting so bad at it that a court actually stepped in and told them that they had to send a letter to the person whom they were getting ready to rob first. As of right now that is the only state that is required to send out a notification. Sad thing how people don’t learn anything from history or they have selective amnesia or they have Oslo syndrome.

    53. wmcritter says:

      One of these days it will be the straw that broke the camel’s back. The people of this country will just snap and start shooting these thieves (and deservedly so).

      I don’t know if it will be more sad or funny as they all face a firing squad with shocked expressions saying: “what, what did I do?” I really do wonder if all politicians are evil or all of them are mentally retarded. Those are the only 2 explanations for their behavior.

      • Jimb says:

        The people will never snap, only a few that can be controlled and dealt with very easily. The people will continue to put up with what ever the gov does and with whatever restrictions they put on them. Socialism and Communism are coming and there’s not much you can do about it.
        Only about 15% of the conservative voters even vote so it’s no wonder this is going to happen. The only way to stop it is if the majority non voting population get out and vote, otherwise, you just need to get you and your family used to living under social comunism.

    56. Edwin says:

      In 1984 I lived in Georgia and became aware of this, and at the time it was 5 years before these bank accounts, etc., were considered abandoned property and turned over to the state revenue dept. At that time, if you were the owner of one of these accounts, and you had some kind of documentation (such as old bank statements, etc. – it varied according to the circumstances of each case, how much money was involved, etc.) you could get it back fairly easily by filling out a form and filing it with the Unclaimed Property Office, which was part of the revenue dept. It would take about 2-3 weeks and they would send you a check for it. The main thing was that you did not get paid any interest on it during the time the state had it.
