The Cash Culture Dooms America

Nothing threatens orderly government and citizen safety like the great wads of cash increasingly carried by largely untrained Americans. Wouldn't it be a fine public service for the Bloomington (Indiana) Herald Times to identify dangerous persons who surreptitiously carry dozens of unregistered bills -- some of them valued at fifty dollars, some even more?

All authorities agree unregistered cash facilitates crime, from prostitution to drugs to tax evasion to moronic instant gratification. It should be reserved for trained experts, bankers, mortgage brokers, and members of the Congress of the United States.

I mention the Bloomington newspaper because, as Caleb reports, it has shown bold leadership in publishing the whereabouts of dangerous citizens, and I foresee much good if it expands it effort to those who refuse to limit themselves to credit cards, debit cards, and a few emergency coins for the pay toilets.

Imagine, a map of Bloomington blocks with several of those scuzzy little google-map location icons marking the vicinity of houses known to harbor folks who keep the most cash around.
