A Public Trust

I set up as a Notary Public and Gold Trader. I certify any lie into a truth. I write the lie down and ask people to swear that the contents of the affidavit subscribed by them are correct and true. After notarization, the lies are displayed. Payments are accepted in gold only; but I am willing to trade almost anything for gold. The traded objects are displayed with the new truths.
