Still, DD is calling attention to an important point. For Nothaus ('von' is only used with an individual's full name or title) to have produced gold coins and called them "Liberty Dollars" like that was indeed illegal (and has always been so), but U.S. Attorney Tompkins need not have called it what he did. Better to just call the man a counterfeiter and leave it at that.

Counterfeiting is not the only issue at hand here.

Yes--I'm more focused on the inevitable abuse of 'Patriot Act' thinking.

How do you mean?

How do you mean?

Economic non-violent crime=terrorism, and "disruption" of oprganizations the police authority deems a challenge.

This should make some waves.

BTW: while you would never copy an AP or other news story whole hog, it's entirely ok to grab and publish the entire FBI press release. Documents released in this form to the public from our government are public domain.

Also note that during the Bush II terms many were making this same charge of terrorism against North Korea for their counterfeiting, and I don't think it;s a stretch of the charge.

An example, this was easy to find

Also note one of the conditions of removing NK from the state sponsors of terrorism list was for them to stop counterfeiting US dollars.

re: #10 Thanos

Note that the concern was mostly the use of counterfeit income to finance violent (truly terrorist) acts. Calling non-violent, non-fear generating crimes "terrorism" was BS when Pres Bush did it, and it's BS if Pres Obama's people do it.

No violence means no terrorism. US State Department definition:

A SC state senator just last week introduce a state bill to replace US currency with gold/silver based currency.


Sorry about the full link, I'm on my iPhone.

re: #14 JustJay

Disregard the full link thing. I think this is the first time I posted a link and didn't realize it would be auto shrunk. :-)
