Cash Transactions Banned on Used Goods in Louisiana!
"A secondhand dealer shall not enter into any cash transactions in payment for the purchase of junk or used or secondhand property. Payment shall be made in the form of check, electronic transfers, or money order issued to the seller of the junk or used or secondhand property..."
I wonder who they think is going to obey this law? What a joke.

Think even deeper. This means that every back yard or garage sale is expected to pay into having credit cards and a debit machine.
Obviously here is the way around this: SAY NO. Phone in and talk firmly. Repeat the phone call. Put it in writing.
Organize many used events, and stand by each other. If one gets a fine or whatever, EVERYONE SHOWS UP AND DEMANDS RELEASE, if by chance anyone got arrested. AND STANDS UP IN COURT TO SAY NO & WE ARE ALL DOING IT. And don't ever pay, never back down. Support each other 100%.
Do that with all of them.
Don't elect anyone on any ballot. Run your own citizens. Look for those who don't beleieve in the current laws or drug laws. And also, support them, form human protection on them because they will be targetted. Refuse everyone they put at you, they are 100% traps.

Really beginning to think that returning to the good ole barter system.
I have been doing it for sometime now,and it's going pretty good.
Staying below the governments radar seems like the direction our society needs to go.

how absolutely disgusting that the US can get away with this.
to the poster that asked who pays for ebay purchases with cash, i do. i can't stand paypal, and most people are happy to give me their account details in order that i pay cash into their accounts. it's instant and it saves them the bother of having to transfer. and it's the ONLY way i pay.
i'm disgusted that your rights are being taken away bit by bit and that i have no doubt it'll be in the UK next if it's not stopped.
