Cause the stupid government can’t turn off your cash. Even if you don’t use cash you are a fool not to have a good stack in reserve

I have a feeling if we get to that point the cash won't be worth the paper it's printed on.

Go to your bank without any forewarning and withdraw $10k.

Surely anybody who does this knows to call a few days ahead. I've done it on many occasions going back over a decade. My local bank branch made it clear that they could only do a cash withdrawal that large for one person if I called on Tuesday to withdraw on Friday. AFAIK, it's always been that way for small branches.

Cash whenever/wherever possible - the tracking that's done via electronic/paper check is unbelievable. Besides - it pisses off the bean counters. The various trades I work with all tell me they appreciate that I do cash transactions - even if they claim every penny, they know you can't stop payment on Benjamin's.....

As to restaurants that only take cash, I remember the very popular Galveston place that the IRS shut down (owner jailed) many years ago.
