It means exactly that. Any law contrary to the constitution is null and void Marbury v Madison

@SledDog No response?
Do you have a fundamental misunderstanding of what unconstitutional means?

My local Home Depot doesn't have everything locked up yet, but visiting closer to city franchises almost everything is behind a cage in the tool aisle. You have to find an employee with a key to that department, get them to unlock each cage, they hold onto your stuff while you point out items, eventually they carry everything to the cashier until you are ready to check out. First time I've encountered this, it's annoying. Especially if you thought you were done picking from cages but turn the corner and find out they locked up an accessory you need too. Start from step 1 finding an employee with a key....

Going to be hard to use digital currency when the power is out. And if Taiwan goes to war, good luck getting a new phone if your current one breaks.

    But to be fair, most transactions today are all done electronically.
    Actual cash use has been in steep decline for some time.
    The digital currency simply replaces the many electronic systems with a single easily monitored, easily controlled electronic system.

    Yes, current electronic system is also vulnerable. But at least cash is there if needed. Otherwise it goes to a full trust based system that a person leaving their details behind is being honest with their payment when power comes back online. However being 2022 where shop lifting is the fashionable thing to do, probably doesn't matter.

    They will reduce the amount of currency in the market when people turn in cash for digital dollar. They will claim that tax was not paid on your cash and you may get 50 to 70% of the value of your cash.

    I wonder: would putting a hole in NS pipes stop some of the high price protests in the EU since it gives a real reason they can’t be turned on? Does it give some air cover and plausible deniability for the politicians?

    people arent stupid, i hope. the people saw what was happening. the only thing people can do, as theyve been doing in many countries now, burn the bills. if the companies have zero revenue, what they gonna do, switch everything off? somehow i dont think companies want to commit financial suicide. maybe its way past time for the people to do what sri lanka did, dont know if it solved anything, but it sure did send a message that the people wont be pushovers.

    More interesting is how .gov can mandate how a private institution chooses to communicate.

    No overreach here. Move along.
    Long history of politicians and wallstreet companies commiting massive fraud.
    I'm ok with requiring auditing and storing of communications.

    This could just as easily be yet another government orchestrated "sting" to catch people with "machine guns" for media consumption and a great story about how the ATF is making America safer through their masterful diligence.

    This would be my worry. That van across the street, or better yet a drone over your house watching you drag it in, then they come and get you. Perfect setup. I would not put it past these people.

    From the article; "Denver police officials previously made public still images they selected from the videos but denied public records requests by The Denver Post and other news outlets to release the videos in their entirety…"

    Videos goes missing in 5... 4... 3... 2... 1...

    Here there are three total people that could make a video "go missing".

    Personally I would be out of a job before I did something like that.

    Videos are on a schedule depending on their classification, some go after 30 days, others stay on forever. But to do total work into the "guts" of that system, only 3 have the ability, and of those three only two know how to do it.

    My local Home Depot locked up the small expensive things BUT now they have a lot more locked up. I'm told the reason for the pressure washers and generators being locked up is because some guy walked in and loaded up a cart with multiple generators and power washers and walked right out of the garden gates and store policy prevented anyone from stopping him.

    Forget your password like the guy did with his bitcoin or the other guy that died and his family had no way of accessing his cryptocurrency. No, you can keep that crap. I'll stay tied to the greenback for as long as I can.

    Our Gov here in missouri put a law in place that requires us to do this. My boss hired an on staff shrink and they hit us every quarter, and a sit down with the shrink yearly. I want to say the statute is once every 3 years.

    I know it is going to come to a shock to most of you, but the popo....they are just humans and like every other human subject to all the human failings.....a shocker I know.

    Difference is there is not a microscope on you day in and day out.

    We lost someone in our close family Saturday to multiple organ failure and ultimately cardiac arrest.

    They were vaxed and boosted.

    Never seen anything like it. Doing yard work one day, not feeling well the next and dead within 24 hours.

    Maybe I'm biased, but with the world in the situation it is in now, I don't find coincidences to be incidental.

    Yep, I had Covid twice and I have other health issues and Covid almost killed me. Notice I said ALMOST. I'm back, these folks can't say that.

    Wait until after the “red wave” happens. Republicans will hire thousands upon thousands of enforcers to control you and the stupid population is begging for a larger police state. All part of the plan. They will grow gov’t beyond anything democrats have done. Won’t be the first time.

    So what is your solution? And why have you not done anything yet but bitch.

    Not sure where to post this, but I just wanted to update those that care that Israel has just received 5 one year old red heifers that are at the moment unblemished from Texas in the past week. They still have a year before they can be used (the last ones that came from the Netherlands grew a few white hairs right before age 2).
