Pre-emptive strike

Move your money.
Pre-emptive strike: Move your money.

When the G8 meet in Chicago in May, it will be a major moment of truth for the global economy.

Already there are all sorts of ideas percolating – Robin Hood tax, banning high frequency flash trading, a true cost economy, bio-economics – that will lead to reform of the global financial system.

But in the meantime there is something we can all do to set the stage for #Occupy Chicago, and that is the personal action to move our money away from the big banks.

It’s easier than you think. You find the credit union in your town or city that you like. You make an appointment. You tell them, “I would like to leave my bank and join your credit union.” They say, “you got it, we'll take care of it.” It will be the most pro-active hour of your week.

On February 1st if you haven’t already taken the opportunity, join these Canadian rabble-rousers to move your money.

Presently if you want full control of your money cash is king! Eventually, with the way our species is failing itself money will be worthless. A simple potato will have more value then a pile of gold.

I agree a lot of loogans posting here who don't have a capacity for critical thinking and believe the nanny state will take care of them... and so why should they give a crap about how their freedom is slowly but surely shriveling so long as they got the corporatist pablum hazing the minds that they will be taken care of with the latest iWhatever app or Call of Duty XXX gamer
