And just how does the average joe get his/her money over there? You can’t take large amounts with you on commercial transportation, you have to have your passport stamped so they know were you go, and you have to get the money OUT of your financial institution in order to transport it somewhere else. Everything electronic is an open book to them.
Then, when the S really does HTF, how do you get it back for use? Even if I use my private jet (HAH HAH!) and can get jet fuel for it, how do I get out and back in through Customs?
(Presumably everyone here – at least those in the U.S. – are already familiar with that one. Just in case though: Bend Over Here It Comes Again!)
