Please note the following from this article:
A source at filed the following report, which has been confirmed from other sources:

“A family member from Irvine, CA (who’s a branch manager at Bank of America) told us two weeks ago that her bank held a workshop where the last two days were dedicated to discussing their bank’s new security measures…

[M]embers from the Homeland Security Office instructed them on how to field calls from customers and what they are to tell them in the event of a national disaster. She said they were told how only agents from Homeland Security (during such an event) would be in charge of opening safe deposit boxes and determining what items would be given to bank customers. At this point they were told that no weapons, cash, gold, or silver will be allowed to leave the bank — only various paperwork will be given to its owners. After discussing the matter with them at length, she and the other employees were then told not to discuss the subject with anyone.

“The family member has since given her notice to quit the bank. I found the news alarming and decided to find out more myself. On a trip to my bank here in Houston, I remarked to a young bank employee (who’s new there), ‘Well I guess you’ve been told all that stuff by the manager and the Homeland Security about what to tell your customers’ – and to my amazement, the young woman came right out and said yes she’d been through all that, then whispered to me across the counter, ‘but we’re not supposed to talk about it – I could lose my job.’” Lesson to learn: don’t depend on getting access to a safety deposit box. If you must use one, only keep documents in it — no valuables. Obviously the feds plan on confiscating gold again.

    Nubbit is a relatively new Blog directory still in its early stages of launch but traffic is already starting to increase ten fold. The nice thing about this site is that the number of Blogs is limited and all Blogs must meet an acceptable level of quality, such as yours.

    Do to the fact that the majority of the Blogs currently listed in our directory were researched and added by the founders of rather than through the submission tool most sites are not aware of there listing other than the recent increases in traffic.

    That said, as we grow and initiate many of the marketing programs over the coming months, we would love to also see an increase in links to our site.
