Stop calling the act of disagreeing with you "trolling." It's a stupid internet tactic.



The following isn't trolling?

Let's not forget those invisible roadside towers that scan you as you whiz by, reading your credit and debit card info from your wallet and emptying out your accounts before you reach the next exit. Also beware of the millions of invisible police drones that X-ray everyone to see if they have more than $20 on them, in which case local police are alerted and directed to your location to confiscate the money.

I wasn't naming those places as specifically dangerous places to carry large amounts of cash. It's dangerous to do that just about anywhere. Evil cop seizure aside.



And people aren't typically worried about carrying large amounts of cash in LV (idk about NY).


It'd be like talking about the increase in casinos across the US, then you saying something about "all those casinos in TX", as if there isn't an increase in casinos in the US.

Or if we were talking about homelessness, then you start naming off a few cities with low homeless rates, as if homelessness doesn't exist.

Or if we were talking about terrorism then you saying, "When's the last time there was a terrorist attack in Antarctica?! See it doesn't exist!!"


Yeah -- that's trolling. You shouldn't be talking about something you literally know nothing about.

It's not necessarily the act of disagreeing with someone, but more like the act of living under a bridge.
'Emergencies' have always been the pretext on which the safeguards of individual liberty have been eroded.

The Yoopers call us that live in the LP of Michigan trolls because we're "under the bridge" referring to the Mackinac Br.

Is there anyone here that thinks the law doesn't need some major overhauling?

We already have a Constitution. It used to mean something.

Once you allow it to be "amended", it means nothing. I've said it before and I'll say it again, the Constitution is a worthless piece of paper.

I will be posting up different stories from time to time.

The New Yorker

Victor Ramos Guzman, a Pentecostal Church secretary from El Salvador, who lives in the U.S. under temporary protected status, is typical in all these respects. A year and a half ago, he and his brother-in-law were driving along Interstate 95 near Emporia, Virginia, en route, documents show, to buy a parcel of land for their church. When a state trooper pulled them over for speeding, Guzman and his brother-in-law disclosed that they were carrying twenty-eight thousand five hundred dollars in parishioners’ donations. Although the trooper found no contraband, he seized the cash. By reporting the case to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (Guzman was in the country legally, but he spoke little English), the state police could gain up to eighty per cent of the seizure through the federal Equitable Sharing program.

You appear not to know what sarcasm is. You also appear not to know what "literally" means. I realize that some people react poorly to being disagreed with. Then the name-calling starts. Call my disagreement with you trolling if you wish, if it makes you feel better.

Your lack of understanding and cohesive thought makes further conversation pointless. Look, you're right, the cops are seizing billions from innocent people. We should all get very very mad about that. Feel better now?

Not worthless, but definitely weakened since the Reichstag Fire.

Yeah, right. He was going to buy land for his church WITH CASH. He didn't stop to convert the money into a cashiers check because hey, they don't have banks in el Salvador, so how would he know about that. And the seller was going to be perfectly happy to be paid in cash! Twenty-eight thousand in small bills!!!

Even so, if he had some kind of sales agreement or other documentation that the sale was going to take place, he would get the money back.
