How will the "Court" workout logically what is and what isn't? One man's sh1te is another man's gold. You can't produce fertiliser if you've only got gold.

The first and the last are legal but the middle one is illegal to produce, sell, use or possess.

Agreed.[/quote]Absolutely it's called Bitcoin, BRICS and freedom. Oh! "Courts" don't bother with morality. Only logic from what I gather from others here but I (and they) may be wide of the mark on that one.

Just saying. :haha: Come on "Burnaby49" join der fun.
Dr. Caligari wrote:I agree with chronista. For our UK friends, let me explain: in the United States, the general power to punish crimes lies with the individual states, not the federal government. So murder, theft, rape and the like are state, not federal, crimes. The federal government does, however, have certain enumerated powers under the U.S. Constitution, including the powers to regulate "interstate commerce" and the postal service. So if the U.S. Congress wants to make something a crime, they need to find a jurisdictional hook to one of those federal powers. Thus, it is a federal crime to use the mails, or communications that cross state lines (via telephone, the internet, etc.), to perpetrate a "scheme or artifice to defraud." The U.S.'s extradition treaties with most foreign countries spell out that someone can be extradited to the U.S. for a fraud or theft that would be criminal in the foreign country, notwithstanding that U.S. law also includes such a "jurisdictional" element that wouldn't be needed under the foreign country's law.
Mixed up rubbish! Gravity and real laws are better.
Ronnie Wood is an excellent musician. Gotta agree with that... 8)
But the same crime doesn't exist in the U.K. So no extradition for him... bad luck... Holidays in countries that also don't have the same laws as the U.S. Honestly becoming a laughing stock here.notorial dissent wrote:Using the US mails to commit fraud and aiding in tax fraud could get him in serious trouble.

I'm just duplicating all the valuable stuff here. You lot are priceless. Really you are. Muppets. :haha:
