Thanks...

...for the bump.

I have a personal stake in this issue

In November of 2007, Dubya's storm troopers seized 25 ounces of my silver before NORFED could ship it out but after I had paid for it. Bario's bandits continue to sit on my property while Bernard awaits sentencing.

Yep, they also stole 10 of the pure copper versions...

...from me, too.

Maybe someone can make

Maybe someone can make a "Government Defrauded Me" commemorative coin with NotHaus’ face on the obverse side.
