Cash transactions may be documented electronically

In the Hardees (Burger chain) drive through, there is a sticker that says "Cash transactions may be documented electronically". Anyone know what the heck that means?

A couple of months ago I was in a store and saw a sign that said, "due to an increasing number of counterfeit bills, we will be requiring an ID for cash transactions". I went ahead and played along to see what happened. They checked my ID but didn't write anything down. It was pointless but it gets people into the habit of pulling out their ID for anything.

I saw on TV once that when

I saw on TV once that when money is withdrawn from ATM the ATM will sacn the number that has been printed on the bills. Directly linking you to the money.Then once the cash has been spent it will be scaned again once the business or person deposits the money in the bank. They were showing how money can be traced once it leaves the bank.
Not saying this is true but I can see how it really narrows down cash transcition privacy!

"Cash transactions may be documented electronically(as seen on the drive thru window at Hardees)- This one is really bothersome to me. Does this mean that using cash will come under more scrutiny than using a credit card does now?"

That's what I figured,

That's what I figured, something related to counterfeit money. Even if they don't write anything down, maybe they have a camera which electronically documents a photo of your license. Could even be a high res security video camera.

Cash is becoming an embarrasing burden to our central planners

First of all, it's getting pretty cumbersome to print the shear volume needed. Have you noticed that some bills feel like rice paper these days? Then there is the problem of documenting "who's" got the cash, and "how" did they get it. If you're going to control a society, you have to control the means by which they transact for their goods and services. Without that, you really don't have too much control. We're seeing this so called financial meltdown to scare us into accepting their next move, which will be announced soon after the November 15 meeting. We'll be told the world needs a real unified one currency system, and they'll even go so far as to say that it will be tagged to a tangible commodity in some way, maybe gold. But that's just another farce. It'll be a paper promise again. Then we'll be looking at "paperless" cash. Everyone will use fancy debit cards that insures instant funding, and instant control. Just think GM Onstar. If they can unlock your car anytime, they can also lock it! Learn to live your life without this smuck government. It ain't that hard to do.

i'm waiting

for them to put bar codes on all paper currency.

Now is the time to JUMP-START the campaigns for 2010 and 2012.
We didn't lose. The ignorant lost. We know what has happened. Personally I think John McCain Has been used as a patsy. To bring about an Obama administration.

It's time! Rand Paul 2016!

"Truth, Justice, and the American Way!"

Electronically

Taking a video and audio of the transaction.

Watching your every move.

I would walk out of an establishment like that....

.and I'd tell them (the manager) why.

I may not know the truth, but I know when I'm being lied to...

Great point, I did the same

Great point, I did the same thing at a local McDonalds after placing my order in the drive thru. When we pulled around the building there were cameras right at eye level looking in the car, not just one but 3 on the way to the window. The sign said audio and recording at all times. Once it was my turn to pay, I asked why the cameras are recording audio the worker explained for our protection. So I explained for my protection I will no longer vist this location.
