I Try To Redeem My Silver Certificate For Silver At B Of A

Fun video of a man that tries to "cash in" a silver certificate at B of A.

"The ignorance of the American populace is overwhelming. While not to belittle the Bank of America employees for there lack of knowledge, I hope they research this and start their education soon."

That was great!

At one time those were collector's items, maybe still are but for some.

thanks for the laugh

thanks for the laugh

Yeah...

While I respect the purpose of the video, I feel that it came off as purely belittling. You took a situation that could have been an educational moment for the employees there, and turned it into an opportunity to embarrass them and make them feel uncomfortable. Unfortunately, a large majority of Americans are absolutely clueless about sound money, fiat money, and our severed ties with gold and silver. Our educational system doesn't give folks a crash course in Austrian economics, nor is sound money discussed to a memorable extent. I work at a bank and try to use every appropriate situation to educate people...... educate people, not belittle them. Luckily there are a lot of appropriate situations, given the environment I work in. I get more satisfaction from people leaving enriched with knowledge and interest, than I would from embarrassing them for the sake of entertaining my friends whom already are aware of what I am talking about. I can assure you, none of those employees went home and said "hmmm, that was interesting what that guy was talking about, let me research that", they more likely left thinking "damn, another asshole was giving me a hard time through the drive-through." I don't know, I just don't find it "fun" making ignorant people feel stupid, I like to spend my time trying to open ignorant people's eyes a bit. These people are just a product of their our terrible educational system.

Thank you for sharing this comment

This is the kind of thing I myself need to work on. I can come off as an a-hole when I try to teach people things or wake them up.

I didn't make the video and wasn't part of it.

I don't think the maker belittled anyone. He just exposed the truth. It seems the truth has been condemned in America if it might hurt someones feelings. ;)

Thanks for the reply.

But I can't take credit for making the video, as much as I would like to.

But I do understand what is happening and thought it was well done.

And he's given me some great ideas ;) Hope he's infected you as well for the cause of Liberty.

He is trying empathy

it works well with other people who aren't A-holes like us. Let's face it, we can all be taken the wrong way when talking about things that are common knowledge here.

Yeah, the point I was tying

Yeah, the point I was tying to make was that he went about it in a negative way. He is preaching to the choir here. Hopefully all of us staunch supporters of the liberty movement and Ron Paul's presidential campaigns are already educated enough on this subject. I'm not trying to argue about this, or act overly sensitive, I just think that there is a better way going about educating other people who are in the dark regarding these simple facts.

I think this also shows the ultimate hypocracy of the banks ...

and the very trust we have given them.

Even the slave workers on the plantation don't understand what they are selling ;)

Another Funny One.....

Another funny video on BofS, oops, I ment BofA. Can't vouch for any of the content though, but funny never the lesss.

Great work

funny stuff

why would you want to

why would you want to exchange it for a dollar? The silver certificate is worth more than that.

What would he do?

I think he made a decision that the educational and FUN derived from his youtube was worth what happened. And I found this on a precious metals site. I doubt it's his only silver certificate ;)

Very funny!

Teller: "Are you video taping this?"
Driver: "Well yes, aren't you?"
That was hillarious!

I would like to know what he would have done if they took his siver certificate and did give him a FRN in exchange!

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

Are you video taping this?

I agree, but I DON'T THINK THE TELLER even understood that he is under video camera's ALL DAY! But he was concerned that a 'civilian' was video taping him. This shows so much of the matrix mindset!

The guy that made this had a brilliant plan. I hope it goes viral. Much can be learned with the discussion about this.

That's pretty entertaining. I

That's pretty entertaining. I have one of those silver certificates, but I keep it in a little plastic sleeve, and I wouldn't let someone take it unless I had another. I just like the fact that I have it and can show it to people. It makes them think.

Good video

but there's just a little irony in "While not to belittle the Bank of America employees for there lack of knowledge"

Take care,

Thanks but I didn't make, and wasn't in, the video.

I just saw it on another forum and thought people would enjoy it as well as open some eyes.

A friend of mine who owns a

A friend of mine who owns a coin shop said that it was illegal for them to refuse to accept that silver certificate at the bank. Its still considered legal tender and banks are not allowed to turn it down.

We should also attract people's attention that it's even worse

(though your linked video, OP, is bitter-funny, agreed)

... for well-informed folks ARE ALSO ALREADY warning us that EVEN SLV's are most, most likely a complete sham (or SCAM, whichever one prefers) :

HA!

That was great. Very good job!

Were starting to shake the sh out of the word sheeple.

Be sure to streach out the string on the sleeping mask well before you let it snap back. Otherwise, they might go back to shleep....................

I forwarded the video to Jack Blood and Doug Owens. We'll see if it makes it on air :)

This post.....

obviously needs more exposure.

Watch the sheeple, happily chewing their grass, pause to do some mental digestion.

Silver coins at a bank can be traded

My wife worked at a bank, and from time to time a guy would come in and walk down the row of tellers looking at the coin trays that were visible through the windows. If he spotted half dollars or silver dollars that did not have the copper edge, he would stop and request to exchange the solid silver coins for paper money.
In all he would collect about 30 coins a week, and by todays silver prices that would come out to close to a $1000 in profit every week.

It is surprising how many people turn in their silver money and don't realize it.

Even more so lately.

I carry two quarters in my shirt pocket. One 1964 and one 1965 and when an opportunity presents itself enjoy explaining the difference to interested parties.

Local convenience store workers caught on quick and have been reporting how many they come across and the number has increased in the last few months.

I think people are breaking into the piggy banks in that have been in their closet for years to get a pack.

A few months ago a man came into a local store with 14 silver

coins wanting to sell them for cash. They were a mixture of 1 oz rounds and silver dollars. The lady clerk offered him $1 a piece, he grumbled and took it. LOL

In hindsight, he probably stole them but didn't know what he had.
