Let me show you an article doesn't need to be long to be good.
The United States Government, like any government of any place afore known or in the future to be devised, can strictly, exclusively and only regulate the conduct of its citizens. That is absolutely all.
No government can (or indeed may, but that's a different discussion) regulate the conduct of sovereigns, of aliens, nor the workings of reality. So yes, when you go
I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands,
what you are in fact saying is
I ask that my conduct be regulated by some clueless bureaucrat somewhere, and I submit to the unseemly results thereof afore the fact.
Irrespective of what you think you might be saying, this is the substance, the effect and the presumable intent of your words.
And now let's offer what the title promised. Have you ever at any point used the phrase "regulate Bitcoin" or some equivalent ? Well, there you goi. You're stupid.
End of story really. Now go accept the DMV into your life or whatever it is you sickies do.
- The best indicator of stupidity is confusion among unlike items. A guy that lives in a village where milking cows has been an activity forever and proceeds to try and milk a goat is a scientist. A guy that similarly tries to milk a squirrel is similarly a scientist. One's successful and the other isn't, but this makes in the end little difference, for all we know it could have come out the other way.
The guy who attempts to milk weeping willows however... that guy's just plain old stupid. That's all. [↩]
