Earlier this week I was doing some business at a nearby gold dealer. In my conversation with the owner it came up that licensed dealers are required, thanks to the PATRIOT Act, to keep an eye out for folks trying to launder drug and terrorist money through precious metal transactions.

I would like to thank the Department of Homeland “Security” for this intervention. Without them, we’d have no freedom.
