Of course, if Michael is correct, it's item (d) that's the kickeressentially everyone in America has one or more accounts in federally insured institutions. Where o where can can I get a non-FDIC account?

I betcha all credit unions, savings & loans, banks, etc are required to have federal insurance to be licensed, and without a license they'd get raided and shut down in a heartbeat- so there's your catch-22.
