Retailers are dropping it because its volatile, the IRS can't do anything about profits from it unless people are managing to get it back into US currency, and the state can't eliminate the currency.

Does PayPal count as US currency? They do international monetary exchanges so I guess you could just transfer it all there and still get stuff at stores. But if you were transferring the value of a cryptocurrency into US dollar, would that count as taxable income?

Why not just drill the top of the fuel level sending unit to fit the FTP sensor? Great build by the way. Are you incorporating a GM body control module into the car as well?

How is him having a different opinion than your's un-american? If anything he is using his first amendment rights to voice his opinion.

It wasn't his opinion it was the statement regarding sit back and not do anything about it.

anyone using a "for the freedom!"  defense here is hurting their own cause.  the gun grabbing left is looking for any excuse to take as many guns out of our hands as possible and fighting to allow semi autos to simulate auto fire rates will be an argument you will eventually lose....and probably in a much worse way to your freedom than not fighting this at all

I think this has to be one of the most un-American comments I have ever had to read. The great thing about this country is having the right to stand up and outcry over something you feel is wrong. Just "sitting back and not fight this" is exactly how the government takes away rights/freedoms.

Lets say someone put a turbo kit on a car or truck and then killed a bunch of people. The media says "the turbo kit allowed the vehicle so much power to accelerate and cause extensive damage." Now the government steps in. Says certain turbo systems should be banned, or you have to have a specific racing license and notify the government of said equipped turbo, you have to take a proficiency test to be able to have the right to use that turbo. How would you feel then? You'd probably feel like the government is over stepping its bounds. Most people aren't going to run people over, and most people won't have that turbo.

But because out of a population of 300 million when less than 10 people a year possibly do extensive damage we need to ban it. We are talking about 0.0000000003 percent of a population in a land where the voice of a majority is supposed to rule.

Our military isnt superior, we just spend more on it than anyone else. China has a larger army than we do, Russia has a substantial military force. The main threat is the United Nations. Crazy as it sounds the UN is the ones who the feds would call in for martial law/forced gun confiscation. Our military follows orders but anyone I have known or met who is in the military swears to uphold the Constitution and it's values. The US military has been demoting or flat out discharging top officials/soldiers who have stood up and said they would not follow gun confiscation orders. We don't get invaded because it is hard for a foreign military force to adequately ascertain the true strength of the country and it's citizens.

When you start putting mandatory psych evaluations and such on gun purchases it becomes an extremely grey area where you could have doctors getting hidden kick backs for the numbers of denied applications, longer periods to purchase guns means less guns in the hands of people who would use it to hunt, protect their lives/property.

Criminals buy and sell drugs even though they are illegal, they break laws because they are criminals. It makes no difference if there are more laws to prohibit buying guns, if people want them they will get them. I smoke weed, that's illegal. Yet I still go get it anyways. I am no different than criminals who go get guns illegally. Sure me buying pot may be a less violent or harmful crime but it is still a crime nonetheless.
