"We all know that we need to get businesses out of our democracy..." 

Although I agree with some of the stuff in this video, I don't agree with this statement. Businesses have a role to play in our democracy. 

And I want my own creme brulee torch, dammit. Because when I need it, I don't want to have to run down to the community garage and see if someone returned it, while everyone at my dinner party is waiting for dessert.

If a bank charged negative interest, then I would take my business elsewhere. I would invest in stock, bonds, real estate or gold. 

For this to work you would have outlaw ownership of anything that functions as a store of value, otherwise deposits at your bank would dry up.

You should realise a few things about the system you are living in.

1. You don't own your bank deposits. When you put money in your account you become a creditor of the bank. If the bank fails the government bails it out by basically printing money out of thin air. If a lot of banks fail you take the hit, being repaid in inflated dollars.

2. You don't own your labour or anything else. The government have been telling you this all you life, but you were not paying attention.

You pay tax on your income. If it was yours, you would not be paying tax on it. Similarly you pay property taxes, same story. If you work twice as hard and earn twice as much, the IRS takes more. They don't need more (for schools etc.) as a result of you working harder, but they take it anyway.

3. If you found a case with $100,000 the first thing you would have to do is hand it in. Then, if you got it back, pay half to the IRS. If you put the rest in the bank, you could look forward to 1% and if the bank does not collapse, you would get it back.

I really want to give this place 5 stars. It's clean, and there are plenty of most things, but the squat racks/bench press is ALWAYS busy. Seriously, always busy. The problem is they don't have any regular bench press stations, so people use the squat racks as substitutes. And so anyone who does any freeweight squats/bench/deadlift is waiting for 2 stations the entire time. They also blast music, which is odd, since 90% of the people have headphones in, and whatever "atmosphere" music they are playing is going to clash with whatever you are listening to on your phone. But, since most gyms do this, I guess I can't complain. Just turn the music down a bit, please. Other than those two issues, this is a great gym. The people who work here are super friendly, and it's a very good value at $15-20 monthly with no contract. tl;dr: Solid gym, unless you like to squat/DL/Bench regularly. Loud, blaring music, but clean, good hours, and cheap. Great cardio machines.
