  • Insane Ban on Cash Transactions in Louisiana

    October 13th, 2011
    Via: Ackel and Associates:
    This summer, the State Legislature and Governor of Louisiana passed a law that bans individuals and businesses from transacting in cash if they are considered a “secondhand dealer”. House Bill 195 of the 2011 Regular Session (Act 389) broadly defines a secondhand dealer to include “… Anyone, other than a non-profit entity, who buys, sells, trades in or otherwise acquires or disposes of junk or used or secondhand property more frequently than once per month from any other person, other than a non-profit entity, shall be deemed as being in the business of a secondhand dealer. ” The law then states that “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…” The broad scope of this definition can essentially encompass everyone; from your local flea market vendors and buyers to a housewife purchasing goods on ebay or craigslist, to a group of guys trading baseball cards, they could all be considered secondhand dealers. Lawmakers in Louisiana have effectively banned its citizens from freely using United States legal tender.

    And yet Bobby Jindal is the Republican poster boy?  He signed this into law on July 1.  

    This will become the standard, under the guise of protecting you against thieves and running the illegal immigrants out of town.

    Funny, though, the pawnshops, a haven for drug dealers to hock off their stolen property, are exempt from this law.  

    New World Order.
