Overseas transactions would be easy to trace...

As usual, you'er wrong again.

"Easy" is an overstatement of the true difficulty involved, especially regarding the number of highly-paid staff, and expensive computing times required.

After 9/11 , I would think all financial transactions are traced. But maybe you should give it a shot...

I'm a HODLER, that would go against my investment premise for Bitcoin. I am highly doubtful if small cases of overseas transactions are worth the time and money to investigate.

New addition to the Patriot Act. They'll just grab it from your browser history - no warrant needed.

Business Insider - May 20, 2020
Civil liberties groups are urging Congress to block the FBI from viewing Americans' web-browsing history without a warrant

The measure moved one step closer to becoming law last week. It was first introduced by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as part of a bill to reauthorize the 2002 Patriot Act, including language that would let the FBI access people's browsing records if they're deemed relevant to an investigation without first getting a judge's approval.

A coalition of Republicans and Democrats introduced an amendment to the bill last week that would have explicitly blocked such FBI surveillance, but it failed by just one vote in the Senate. Four Senators were not present for the vote, including one self-quarantining for COVID-19 and one who said she would have supported the amendment but was on a flight to DC when the vote took place.

Quarantine is when you restrict the movement of sick people.

Tyranny is when you restrict the movement of healthy people.

Incognito mode in Chrome? Maybe Brave or Firefox has this as a option.

Internet cafes or Public Libraries?
