Response to bitterross (Reply #36)

39. The simple way around that for these assholes is to say that the act of TRAVELLING TO ...

'for the purpose of' ... is the illegal act. You started your trip/planning in GA, and that's where it's illegal to 'conspire' to do this.

Pretty sure they'll use basically the same legal argument they use to nab 'sex tourists' ... technically I believe the illegal act is conspiring to leave the US with intent to go to Thailand to screw minors. You don't even actually have to go do it to get busted for it (though of course, no super-rich person would ever be prosecuted under such laws).

I'm not saying it's going to stand up to court scrutiny, in fact it damn well better not, for most of the reasons you state.
