Rachel Maddow is interviewing David Wondrich right now, and I'm drinking a Hot Buttered Rum.
Yeah, you can buy 10 year old aged Rioja for less than $20 at just about any grocery store. You can find some spectacular deals, and they're such versatile wines to boot.
Usually holes on belts are an inch apart. Less, in some cases. You're supposed to use the middle hole, and belts are normally measured to the middle hole. You should be a size 32.
It's not just a matter of a higher armhole, it's about the way the armhole is pitched in relation to your body. The amount of room available in the back- I've run into a several cheap slim jackets that just don't give anywhere enough room in the back for me- I put it on, and I literally cannot move my arms forward- one wonders what the designers were thinking. That's the issue with high armholes- done right, you have a lot more mobility. If the shoulders and back of the...
It's not about public/private, it's about whether the debt was created with a prior agreement as to the form of payment or not. Private businesses as well as government agencies can refuse pennies, or large bills, or payment in cash altogether, if it's specified before you receive the good or service you're paying them for. A bus or tollbooth doesn't have to take pennies, because they have not agreed to let you access the service yet. If you don't want to pay the way they...
You have no fucking clue what you're talking about.I've never done it because I'm not an ass, at least in this area, but people do pay shiat in pennies all the time. It results in a bad day for the clerk and absolutely no change to the thing the person paying is frustrated about, so it's a fairly useless thing to do. But federal law quite explicitly requires them to take the money. If a debt is created with no previously negotiated terms on form of payment, as is typical...
Sarcasm doesn't work when the point you're trying to make is flatly wrong.
From your own link: "This statute means that all United States money as identified above are a valid and legal offer of payment for debts when tendered to a creditor."If the debt has already been created, as in a medical bill, a credit card bill, or a parking ticket, the creditor must accept any form of official US currency. However, a business (or government agency, or person) can refuse to make a sale or enter into services unless the buyer agrees to the condition of a...
Except that EO 10834 doesn't actually contain that text. The Sovereign Nutjobs are lying to you, no shock there.This is the full text of EO 10834, spoilered because it's long and boring: [[SPOILER]] It is quite flatly and undeniably the law that US currency is always valid for payment of debts in the US. You are wrong. Get over it.
31 U.S. Code ยง 5103: "United States coins and currency (including Federal reserve notes and circulating notes of Federal reserve banks and national banks) are legal tender for all debts, public charges, taxes, and dues. Foreign gold or silver coins are not legal tender for debts."It is explicit in statute- you have to take any US coins or currency as payment for a debt. A business can refuse to enter into a debt, but once the debt is incurred, all US currency is valid for...
