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.

This is frightening.  Everyone who signed this legislation and the gov who signed it need to be kicked out of office.
I guess the conspiracy nuts are right again. To think the mind controlled herds ever scoffed at the nefarious concept and actualization of a cashless society monetary control grid.
I don't have any problem telling them 'See, here's the proof.  I told you this would happen'.

One slighty used wife.


Will accept canoe and a strong ox or other reasonable trade. No cash, credit, checks or other fiat currencies accepted.

Hey Marklar!!!

We've missed you.  Hope you have time for a chat sometimes, let's set a time.

Hopefully, this law will be ignored.  How wasteful to spend resources to enforce this.
Everything is illegal, thats the nature of a police state.
