Search for Executive Order 6102 and you'll learn exactly how government-proof your gold is.

Tolerance is good as long as every side agrees to it. We used to have a society like that.

Murder leaves evidence that obligates other people to find out what happened and bring the perpetrator to justice. Murder is enforceable, creating a deterrant against more murder. Whether or not it's morally wrong is not part of my argument at all. My point is that if a law creates a huge black market, it's not much of a law, is it? If we passed a Constitutional amendment that says it's illegal to smoke weed, and the black market for weed just keeps doing what it does, what has the Constitution accomplished? Or indeed, if we have a Second Amendment but California keeps doing what it's doing, what has the Constitution accomplished?

Take some advice from someone who holds a lot of crypto. Not only is cryptocurrency traceable, it is the most traceable asset in existence. The blockchain can be examined easily by anybody through blockchain explorer sites. Brokers who sell crytocurrency hold records of your transactions which can be subpoenaed by law enforcement, which in turn gives law enforcement access to every time the crypto you bought changed hands. And this idea of "cold storage" you talk about? It's a valid concept, but the only thing in cold storage is your private key. As soon as you want to use that Bitcoin, the transaction is going on the blockchain, which is utterly public information.

The point of cryptocurrency is not that it is untraceable, but that its transactions are unstoppable and it cannot be printed or destroyed by governments.

Dumbass. I already told you I put you on my list of users to check daily for racial slurs.

We understand of course that the concept of free speech has to do with the way humans treat each other. Not sure why you've invoked the supernatural in a conversation over a human matter. It almost reads as if you ultimately don't support free speech. If you believe yourself or your community to act as the invisible hand of God, it would seem to give you not only moral justification but actually a moral obligation to stop by force speech deemed by God to be wicked.

Wasn't expecting this weak and irrelevant of an argument. The point that private dealings between individuals can't be coerced because there are no witnesses who would squeal to the authorities. Explain to me how the Constitution in any way has any relation to this principle. It doesn't. You're just struggling for any way not to admit that the joke applies to everyone equally.

Okay, I did it. What now? Do YOU support free speech for these types?

This applies in the inverse, too. I enjoy exploding tradcon heads with their own cognitive dissonance. Edit: The 10 downvotes and no valid rebuttals as of 5/9/22 absolutely prove my point that y'all are salty as hell and blind to your hypocrisy.

The blurred thumbnail looked like a young woman in a pink shirt and jeans flashing her huge tits. My disappointment is immeasurable.

Nothing. The article talks about an activist group who basically wants the FTC to act in a corrupt manner and block the sale of Twitter for invalid reasons.

Not that I don't like a good Fed bashing, but this is not news. It was UP 1,000 points yesterday. Three trading days before that, it was down 900 or so. It's been volatile. But stop letting sensationalist headlines manipulate your clear picture of what is really happening.

I can see that reparations is a wish for the story of humanity to have a happy ending. But the characters who played during the 19th century are all dead and replaced by all new characters and those people who were wronged beyond belief can never be repaid. To repay the ancestors of the victims and punish the ancestors of the aggressors is a childlike idea that just continues the racism.
