The right to discriminate is a natural right. It should not be confused with a "civil right" which is one bestowed (or even illegitimately curtailed) by legislative fiat.
Remember, government authority cannot collectively be anything more than power we can wield ourselves. That is a foundational concept that few Americans even understand.
Of course, there is the choice to consent to be governed that must also be considered. Doing so waives one's rights and actually increases one's duties and obligations. It's why registered voters, for example, can be compelled to serve jury duty, but ALL OTHERS may volunteer. Get that?
And that means that the black market will still exist and may actually flourish. Alternate sources of supply always appear in markets where price is too high (usually as a result of taxation or tariffs) or supply is artificially restricted.
Yeah, the real curious aspect is that even with the Dow on a run, volume is declining in a stark fashion, which, at least in my opinion, indicates chicanery is afoot.
The fed is opening an auxiliary command and control operation in Chicago apparently fearful of some potential event in NYC according to ZeroHedge.
On the other hand, it may well cause the oil glut to expand. The Saudis must have the revenues or risk revolt.
I certainly hope that to be the case. All this foot dragging serves to undermine the share value.
Citizens are subjects, obligated to perform mandatory civic duties. They are not sovereigns.
It will be admitted on all hands that with the exception of the powers granted to the states and the federal government, through the Constitutions, the people of the several states are unconditionally sovereign within their respective states.

Who are those unconditionally sovereign people?
I couldn't recall the significance of the name: Chris Savvinidis. After searching on the name I recognized the images and his words were called to mind. Perhaps he's run out of gas knowing that, by and large, the American people are really too stupid to understand what is going on just like the Europeans of the 15th century when this "model" came into vogue.
Most are unaware, too, about the Constitution being an engineered coup d'etat by the traitor Hamilton. The original purpose of that convention was to amend the Articles, not throw them out, but he was the driving force behind creating a new government. Many wonder why else he was even there. But it's now obvious. The Rothschilds wanted a more powerful central government, one that would need a central bank—theirs. Hamilton's reward was to be put in charge of that very bank. And then there was the further mischief of the idea of "implied powers", which when compared to the 9th and 10th amendments, should have melted away like the Wicked Witch of the East, but yet still persists.
Let us not forget the aims of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization—a return to a metallic monetary standard. With the continuation of the obvious shift of influence to the East, the likelihood of implementation grows each passing day. I actually believe watching folks use FRNs as tinder would be a remarkable step in the right direction.
The FED has no options in such a scenario save promulgating another war, which is not outside the scope of their playbook.
There's always silver and copper. The only reason we don't still use them today is the ongoing self-destruction of the value of the money owing to paper money inflation, which is always a monetary event. An ounce of either silver or gold still has the same purchasing power it did 100, 200, even more years ago and it cannot be leveraged.
A brand new Chevrolet Silverado advertised at $36,000 (discounted from $48,000—at one time the price of a small home) would cost the equivalent in how many Silver Dollars or ounces of gold?
