Please say more, yes. This is the most fun I've ever had on Slashdot.
It's telling that no one has supported you in this bizarre crusade. I have provided countless ways for you to substantiate reality. You have provided....a bad attitude? Arrogance? Holding your breath and insisting you're right? I would love to see some sort of support for this bizarre position you've taken that exists outside of your mind.
Even if "currency" once meant something else (though it didn't) it wouldn't now. Like the word "egregious". When I tell you you are an egregious human being you are well aware I am not referring to you as eminent or distinguished. I'm referring to how "extraordinary in a bad way" your critical thinking, reasoning and debate skills (such as they are) are.
seems to me that Hawaii, Rhode Island and Alaska could do with a bit of that action too (although the ferry trip from Hawaii to Rhode Island would be a bit of a chore)...
Prince Edward Island and Vancouver Island are more akin to Manhattan than Hawaii or Alaska. They are served by bridges. Hawaii is 2500 miles from the west coast of the US mainland and Rhode Island is a (non-island) state on the US east coast. There actually is a ferry between Alaska and Washington, primarily for travel without the need of a passport.
Adam Kokesh, a controversial activist seen loading a gun in D.C.'s Freedom Plaza in a video posted to YouTube July 4, has been transferred from Fairfax County and charged in D.C. with openly carrying a shotgun in violation of D.C. laws.
He is specifically being charged with violating the following offense:
Carrying a Rifle or Shotgun (outside Home or Place of Business), in violation of 22 D.C. Code Section 4504 (a-1) (2001 ed.)).
Look, basically everyone in the fucking world refers to bitcoin as currency. That's a fact. You can stamp your feet, hold your breath, and rant and rave on the internet for as long as you'd like. Why you have such a hard-on for doing that, I have no clue. Why don't you go write angry letters to all these news organizations and tell them to stop using my "personal definition":
The Wall Street Journal
the New York Times
The Washington Post
Oh and also, the US Federal and State Governments.
