You never did answer the question that I have asked three times in this thread.
Show me the (case and trial so i can reference it) where writing a redemption message on a federal reserve note has put someone into prison.
Because your statement is false.
edit on 9-1-2013 by VforVendettea because: (no reason given)
I never said that anyone was put in jail for it, simply that under the law you could be jailed, or do you think not reading the full statement is
acceptable. Do a google search on 12 USC 411 - the first thing that pops up is a person that is whining because the FBI came to his door after he
endorsed a check that way.
We all know that they don't bother going after everyone that writes on money, that would be an absurd waste of time, and we also all know (and it has
been stated IN THIS THREAD) that they would simply remove the bill from circulation and replace it with a crisp new one. It does not change the fact
that it is an illegal act, plain and simple..
Having sex on sundays is an illegal act in my state, but do they actively enforce it? nah.. Again, is it illegal, yes it is, it is a known law and on
You are trying to compare apples and oranges, with the following reason:
Just because they don't enforce it actively, it must mean that it is ok to do. (or the point that it comes from: Just because you can do a thing,
does not necessarily mean you must do that thing)
You have danced around the issue from the moment you started the thread..
1) I asked for proof that this was legal, you cannot provide any other than from websites that specilise in trying to help people scam the IRS or Sov
Citizen Movements, both of which do not have a full understanding of the laws as they are written.
2) I have stated with proof, that this is an illegal act, and that demanding "lawful money" is tantamount to asking gimmie gimmie gimmie to the
government for something that is really nothing. There is no such thing as "lawful Money" that is tax free, that is not able to be lent out by a
bank and that is somehow different than "Legal tender"
3) You keep harping on this defacement, while it is a small issue it's just a part of the overall illegality of the whole thing, so here is the
You think that by writing this phrase on your money and your checks that you are somehow getting "lawful money" and that that money is tax free,
that money cannot be lent our by banks to others, cannot be used for fractional lending, and somehow restricts the usage of the money somehow..
Sorry to burst thee bubble.. but it's simply not so, please show me where in US law it states that a bank cannot lend out money deposited into it.
There is no such regulation, anywhere in USC or CFR, there is however code that prohibits everything you are stating to do.
Again, just because they don't actively throw you in jail for writing a grocery list on the bill, doesn't make it legal. Apples and oranges, one
does not equal the other.
So why are you so insulting?
