"The take away from this post is that rates are at historical lows. You can't really go below 0.00% without having to pay someone to take your cash from you."

Rates haven't been this low prior to the impositon of the income tax.  Money market yields are non-existent.  People moved a lot of that money into bonds because of price appreciation and a much better return.
