  1. I actually believe that altering or defacing currency is not a crime as long as it does not damage or devalue the currency.

    Typical wingnut bullshit: “But they earned it, because they are so smart and work so haaaard, and are generally the UberMenschen that we should be serving, for without their brilliance and leadership we’d all live in caves and rape our children and eat poo! We need their enlightened rule so we can have nice things!”

    How is it a crime, created and paid for with our efforts, I can do what I want to it.  It is time we remove power from law, and government from rule.  When they show us a ruler who is awake, then i will start listening.

  7. Marking money is only illegal if it is the INTENT of the marker to render it unfit for circulation. These guys want the bills to circulation to spread the information. It is the millionaire who lights a cigar with a bill that is committing a crime.

    It’s not a crime but I think it will spread more ridicule toward the movement, like adding coals to the fire.  Critics are desperate for any spark of controversy and they’ll eat this up and add it to their soundbites. Once again, the protesters will be called vandalizers and bums. sigh.

  11. It’s also rumored that the Bill of Rights and the Constitution
    are to be printed on toilet paper
    so that every Amorikan will be able to experience it as it now is.

    A test version was sent to the Supreme Court
    during the Bush administration
    and they reported that its works great.

  13. It’s only defacing the currency if you destroy it, or make the serial number unreadable.

    The economy is fixed, and has been fixed and trickstered for 3 years. The dollar is mere artificial, and does not tell the truth due to simple economic principles. To fix the bills of Jane’s and John’s seems to me more or less righteous, and a symptom of how the situation really is. In few months, a 100 dollar will be worth 1/5 of it’s written values. Even millionaires will loose all of their promised retirements. This is only straight civil disobediance, if you’re in doubt, ask independant economists, not those fraudsters in the 4 criminal banking-companies.

    Here’s what the economy’s dealing with..and their counterparts?.. the Fed sponsored banks in the US.
