(Advice from a cop)

Don't worry about an attorney, this isn't a civil law matter.  The situation you describe is criminal theft and fraud.  Contact local police in every jurisdiction when he lives, you live, and where you think miners currently are.  And if state lines were crossed during the crime, contact the local FBI office near you

Today I watched a very convincing video on how the following years are crucial for the future of humanity. Scientists agree that for humanity to survive global warming without catastrophic consequences on a global level, then global warming should be limited between 1.5 to 2 degrees Celsius. Current models show that any plan to reach this goal according to current trends should be very rapid. Fossil fuels on the majority of factories and cars should be replaced within the following four years or the damage will be irreversible and global. The U.S. has the technology to do it, it's the world's biggest economy. It's time to decarbonize and lead the world once again. Are you going to stand by watching idly? I say us bitcoiners should take a stance.

Yeah, they've been saying that since Al Gore was VP. They just called it global warming back then.  Proved incorrect, the liberals needed to rename it,,,climate change.  Well shit, the earths climate has been changing for millions of years 

Giving money to governments will not halt climate change.

The legal restrictions on emissions, and voluntary actions taken in the last 2 decades has done more to help than any tax/fee/green deal ever could.

And the US is the leading voluntary compliance location making the largest positive effect, while other countries don't care and still increase pollution levels

Rather than wait for Bitmain repair location to open post-covid to fix my DOA claim, I just sold my unit on eBay.
The S17+ 70 I got cost me less than $200 after applying Bitmain credit.  It arrived with one dead board.  
I got $650 for it on eBay.  

And bought a S17+73 from a friend for $650.

All in all..... it was much better than dealing with Bitmain

I am interested in buying all of them if you can ship to Serbia and you use confirmed escrow from btctalk like Phil.

Well, they're dedicated to a 7 day auction on eBay right now, and I wasn't offering international shipping in the eBay ad. Ups ground to the lower 48 only right now.  

Update: all 3 sold on eBay already.  Apologies to anyone looking.

Was it you that said somewhere you have a repair contact in NC somewhere?  I got and S17+ for almost free with my Bitmain credit just prior to the virus. One board isnt reading (temp sensor error). I created a DOA repair ticket with Bitmain, and they wanted me to ship it to Asia for repair because CA faculty was closed due to virus. The agreed to honor my request to wait for CA to re-open..... but..... I'm still waiting.
   It's running fine on two boards, but was wonder what kind of costs i might incur to ship to NC dude for repair.  Might even be able to hand deliver... I have several friends from here in PA who work down there, and they go back n forth often.

One man killed and a 14 year old critically injured after vigilante security guards shoot up an SUV after the SUV was allegedly involved in a drive by shooting. I'm not sure if it's even been confirmed whether or not the SUV was the actual one involved.

It started off as some children role playing but it's gotten out of hand at this point. The mayor needs to step up and end this shit but she's too busy pandering to the hard left. There are now real consequential implications by letting so much chaos roam through six blocks of Seattle which has now ironically proved why you need trained police. How many more people are going to die before it ends?

This is exactly why I said Democrat leaders are FAILING at doing their jobs.

Mayors, Governors, etc... have a responsibility to protect ALL of their citizens, not just those who vote for them.
These liberal run cities are a prime example of the Democrat leaders not giving a crap about anyone else's safety, other than those who they expect a vote from.

Imagine owning a business, having a job, or living in the area that is unlawfully overrun and claimed by "protesters." You immediately become a helpless victim of the mob, with zero protection from your elected government. (But are still expected to pay your taxes)

What are they up to now?   5 shootings in CHAZ? 

They're doing a great job in their little area.   6 square blocks of their own little Utopia of crime.

And an absolute perfect display of why it doesn't work. 
Of course, supported by Democrat leaders.

Or, here's a really specific one in this article...

And they call it what it is - a plurality:

Note that a plurality of 91 million eligible voters did not vote.

Guess I'm just a simpleton who uses common dictionary terms.
Definition of majority : the greater quantity or share

I got mad crayon skills. Feel free to stick it to your fridge:


Thanks... I actually chuckled a bit....  now can you cut that green section in half?. Make one part blue, the other red.  

Or, here's a really specific one in this article...
12  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone... What are your thoughts on it? on: June 25, 2020, 09:51:38 PM
I originally wrote "The majority of Americans voted for no one last time." which is factually and contextually correct.

It's not, unless you count kids.

Population: ~320 million
Voting age population: ~250 million
Voting age population who didn't vote: ~110 million
(it's even less if you adjust for inmates and non-citizens)

Calling that a majority is highly irregular - that's why it caught my eye.

Your coming up with wordy BS to cover your own ignorance is nothing short of amazing.  

I appreciate that you care so much about us simpletons and blessed us with this diagnosis.

It's really cute how you try to pick flyshit out of pepper.  I even explained the easy-to-understand sentence in the following post. Apparently still not clear enough, let me direct your attention to a pie chart in the sky:

Look up, draw an imaginary circle. Thats voters.   Now draw a line down the center, bisecting the circle into two halves. one... only one of those halves, bisect it again. But not the other original half.
You should be left with a pie chart depicting 1/2, 1/4 & 1/4.    Or in pie chart terms 50%, 25%, 25%.

Now assign some labels to those sections.  The big part being the half or 50%, write CHOSE TO NOT VOTE.   Then in the remaining smaller sections, being the 1/4's or 25%'s, write Trump in one, and Killary in the other.

Now, step back an marvel at the creation.   Which is bigger?    

American voters, in their choice of the 3, (no one, Killary, trump), the majority chose no one.

If that's still causing trouble for you, PM me your address, and I'll mail you a crayon drawing.

"Neither"  was the largest segment of registered voters.

It's misleading to call it a "majority" in election context, which typically means >50%. What you're describing is usually called a "plurality" when talking about elections.

It's also a bit weird to say "the majority of Americans voted for no one." That makes it sound like they walked into the voting booth and wrote in "No One."

The majority of voters actually voted for Hillary.

I have to take that back; the 3rd parties + Trump beat out Hillary.

Both of you are playing cute word games....

I originally wrote "The majority of Americans voted for no one last time." which is factually and contextually correct. Apparently that wasn't blatantly obvious enough for you two.

Your coming up with wordy BS to cover your own ignorance is nothing short of amazing.

The majority of Americans voted for no one last time. They chose no giving a crap over either candidate, because it didnt have that much effect on their personal life.

Last time? 2016 turnout was 55%, typical for a presidential election. So most people did vote for someone.

Right.  Try that math again.

Of registered voters:
Maybe 20-22% voted for Trump
Maybe 20-22% voted for Killary
Maybe 2% voted for 3rd party independent
45% voted for no one

"Neither"  was the largest segment of registered voters.

(Not diggin up exact numbers for this, its quite obvious)
15  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone... What are your thoughts on it? on: June 25, 2020, 02:12:49 PM

I've seen maybe a handful of articles like this, but the majority of them aren't saying such. All the media wants to report on is the fact that they're holding a few peaceful speeches and all about how they're developing a new community without law enforcement involved.

The media really should be showing the issues that are present in this 'new society' instead of just trying to skew the argument by JUST showing the 'amazing' of this society.

I can't believe people accepted that 6 blocks of a MAJOR US CITY was taken over by people and no one did a thing. Seattle flees. Interesting. I'd think that Trump would have the support of popular opinion of stopping this if it happened in DC.

Well..... its an election year.   And like we saw last election, the left has to get violent to "have their voices heard."
It wasn't enough last time, so they saw the error in their ways and have to scream louder.
They think they're making a point or expressing their views...... but the majority of Americans see the obvious. That they're discrediting their views by their actual actions. This will only encourage more voting AGAINST them.

The majority of Americans voted for no one last time. They chose not giving a crap over either candidate, because it didnt have that much effect on their personal life.  I think that'll will change a bit more this time, now that the innocent and indifferent have had their cities burned, cars pelted, and safety challenged.

Just look at RGR stock (Ruger gun company)... stock prices went from $38 to $73 in a matter of two months. Because everyone is buying guns, gun sales are soaring. Not because leftists are arming themselves against the government. But because everyone is arming themselves fearing a leftist mob will attack them.

I read an article saying a large portion of CHAZ 'residents' were fleeing the zone because of the high amount of crime and violence inside the No-Cop zone.

These kids cannot even see their own irony.

('Kids'- can also include Liberals in this context)

I had someone ask me the other day "How do you know which side are the good guys?" I told her it's usually the side that doesn't support burning buildings, erasing history, attacking the police, race baiting, taking away your rights and silencing free speech.

Meanwhile, do YOU want to align yourself with "Black Lives Matter?"

How about chanting "Black Lives Matter?"

What would one be affirming?

Radical marxism.

I kind of don't think MLK would have liked or approved of this. I think he would have spat on it.

Absolutely not. The BLM movement has demonstrated a very high rate of criminal activity, and by policy, I am not permitted to associate socially or politically with known criminals.

Additionally, my personal belief is that they are narrow-minded, and their movement is counter-productive to their goals.
  "Don't racially profile me, or I'll steal your TV" is a piss poor way to send the message you want.
20  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Demographics and politic views..... what's yours? on: June 23, 2020, 05:51:51 PM
You dont give a shit about preconceived notions, yet have the preconceived notion that good cops anywhere in the US should be attacked because of a criminal cop in Minneapolis.

Except I don't. Way to torpedo your own thread by making shit up like that.

Got it... hot pocket kid.   Thanks for your input.

This is what I'm talking about. You're not really looking to understand what motivates people or influences their opinions. That'd be mildly interesting albeit mostly useless on the internet where no one knows that you're a dog. You seem to be looking to confirm your bias or perhaps to find new angles to attack people... for what exactly? For disagreeing about politics?

BTW I'm too scared to leave my basement for a hot pocket so I'm on a Dew & Doritos diet. I hope that doesn't make me a terrorist on your life experience chart.

Can you at least come to the window and share?  Dew and Doritos are my shizznit.

Let me rephrase the original question.....  does anyone care to share the WHY behind the way they think?  I'm trying to understand where people get their unwavering opinions, why they're no willing to listen to anything that opposes their narrative, and what has led them to think that way.

Did you learn it in college? From your parents?  From you co-workers?  
Why are we assuming all white people are racist?  Why are we assuming all cops are murderers?  Why are we assuming Orange Man Bad? Why are we rallying behind illogical political narratives?

I'll start:   I was independent, never gave a crap about politics. Believed they were all blowing smoke and only in it for personal gain and power. I refused to vote in any election. I was never into any organized religion, and for years felt R-candidates were too concerned with religion and abortion, and D-candidates were too concerned with giving away tax money.   So I voted for neither.  This went on for a few decades.
   My first felt effect of politics was in the military, when Clinton began closing bases and downsizing. This caused many great leaders into forced retirement. Then his Assault Weapons Ban, which made cosmetic things illegal, although tripling the value of every gun I owned.   And I still refused to vote. Clinton/Gore 1992 even ran confederate flags with their campaign. I felt all politicians were slimey.  I was tired of political BS and fluffy speeches that had no content. No one delivered what they promised. I thought that we needed less politics and more business-type leaders. I wanted a candidate that looked at the bottom line, and rewarded effort.
   Then Obama came along. Listening to his rhetoric full of emptiness and lies, handing out freebies, I feared Obama would be nothing but a race divider. He would flip the script and take a racial balance and turn it into a hatred for whites. So my first vote ever was to vote against him. Dont even recall who the R-candidate was. I found that useless because of the state I reside in. And I was right. He made race relations worse than ever. Racism started flipping the other way to hate white people for being white.  Growing up in the '70s and '80s, we never gave a crap about skin color. Adulthood in the military had the same result. No one cared. We all worked, played, and fought together.
   Then Trump comes along.  What a horrible politician, but being from the business world, he valued results and fairness for effort. Eh, could be worse. Not really interested in voting for him.  But what's the other choice? Hillary? OMG, she's unreal and full of nothing. A proven liar, damn near traitorous if you look at the Uranium and Foundation things.  Nope, dont like Trump that much, but Hillary will be another smoke blower who does nothing but give fluffy speeches. So here I am again, not voting FOR a candidate, but voting only AGAINST the other.

   I've seen the definition of racism change over the years to suit political movement.
   I believe in Law and Order, and will continue to vote for the same.  Civilized society.

    And regarding the refusal of people to listen to another point of view. Well, I find that insane. We were taught as kids that discussing religion, politics, and money with others is only a recipe for disaster and argument. You leave me alone and I'll leave you alone.
  The problem I have now is some people refuse to listen to factual data. They refuse to consider what a person experience in the subject has to say. They refuse to consider alternatives to the stereotype.

  I'm here. Ask me anything. I'm usually politically neutral. But I'm 100% in favor of law and order. Look at my username.  Ive been a cop for almost 20 years.  I wear a chest full of awards for saving lives, several dozen to date. I have never caused injury or death to anyone.   But yet I am hated because some dumb cop 2000 miles away did something criminal.  

Here's a good synopsis of today's world:

Why Did The Chicken Cross The Road?
DONALD TRUMP: I've been told by my many sources, good sources - they're very good sources - that the chicken crossed the road. All the Fake News wants to do is write nasty things about the road, but it's a really good road. It's a beautiful road. Everyone knows how beautiful it is.
JOE BIDEN: Why did the chicken do the...thing in know the rest.
SARAH PALIN: The chicken crossed the road because, gosh-darn it, he's a maverick!
BARACK OBAMA: Let me be perfectly clear, if the chickens like their eggs they can keep their eggs. No chicken will be required to cross the road to surrender her eggs. Period.
AOC: Chickens should not be forced to lay eggs! This is because of corporate greed! Eggs should be able to lay themselves.
HILLARY CLINTON: What difference at this point does it make why the chicken crossed the road.
GEORGE W. BUSH: We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road or not. The chicken is either with us or against us. There is no middle ground here.
DICK CHENEY: Where's my gun?
BILL CLINTON: I did not cross the road with that chicken.
AL GORE: I invented the chicken.
JOHN KERRY: Although I voted to let the chicken cross the road, I am now against it! It was the wrong road to cross, and I was misled about the chicken's intentions. I am not for it now, and will remain against it.
AL SHARPTON: Why are all the chickens white?
DR. PHIL: The problem we have here is that this chicken won't realize that he must first deal with the problem on this side of the road before it goes after the problem on the other side of the road. What we need to do is help him realize how stupid he is acting by not taking on his current problems before adding any new problems.
ANDERSON COOPER: We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet been allowed to have access to the other side of the road.
NANCY GRACE: That chicken crossed the road because he's guilty! You can see it in his eyes and the way he walks.
PAT BUCHANAN: To steal the job of a decent, hardworking American.
DR SEUSS: Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes, the chicken crossed the road, but why it crossed I've not been told.
ERNEST HEMINGWAY: To die in the rain, alone.
GRANDPA: In my day we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road. Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough for us.
ARISTOTLE: It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.
ALBERT EINSTEIN: Did the chicken really cross the road, or did the road move beneath the chicken?
COLONEL SANDERS: Did I miss one?
