    So what's going on, you're going to take all your money out of the bank? Is it some kind of protest maybe?

    And terrible, terrible font.

    And if this actually happened the banks might collapse, so congratulations. Though the bank would probably stop withdrawals of money from peoples accounts before that happened, but it would still damage the American economy immensely.

    This is just like the boycott certain petrol stations on certain days until they drop their prices..... never going to work, never going to happen.

    I get this at least once a week with a different date as either a chain email SPAM from friends or on bloody FaceBook.

    what a load of horse crap. If this was oh so true it would be screaming across the mass media.

    The flag is the coolest part...it looks a bit like the Brittany flag turned on end.

    It's a testament to human diversity, among other less flattering adjectives, that someone had the urge to put energy into making this little 'flyer' or whatever it is.

    What is upsetting is that this person ate food in order to provide this energy, and that was rather a waste in an overpopulated world.

    There were only somewhere around 15 stars on the Jericho flag, but they did have the stripes going the other way.

    :p

    A run on the banks would cause them to collapse. Banks do not have sufficient funds to pay out all that they hold, just look at what happened to Northern rock in the UK.

    1: Withdrawal of all funds from a bank would cause the depositor to bounce checks previously drafted for that account.

    2: Withdrawal of CDs would cause the depositor to forfeit a portion, or all, of their interest gained.

    3: The Federal Reserve has the capacity to handle this, since only a few morons would consider listening to that call.

    4: Consider the economic status of the person that falls for this. If you're a millionaire, you know better, and have money deposited across multiple accounts. If you're not, you can't pull enough money to affect any bank.

    5: The only banks that might possibly take a hit from this would be the ones that were founded for the sole purpose of creating mortgages for resale over the last several years.

    So, bottom line, it's for naive people that will only hurt themselves, and won't affect the Fed one bit.

    Boy am I slow: I spent 5 minutes searching the web for the conspiratorial significance of 6/9 :eek:.

    Aw c'mon, play nice: Ron Paul is a little wacky and not too useful, but I don't think he's dangerous or stupid, unlike people who come up with abominations like the OPs 'artifact'...most of Paul's radical positions are at least quasi-reasoned, even if they don't have much real-world potential.
