Hilarious. These people forgot that they needed something called financial security.

External forces at work on the currency, not the fundamentals of it. Governments outlawing it, security issues with Mt Gox, etc..

Governments want to outlaw it because that is their stranglehold for robbing their populace through mandated inflationary currencies that benefit the elite (and rich).

"It's not a currency," he said.

Of course it is. It fits within the definition of a currency because it moves around, creating a current. Currency is a term derived from the word 'current' or 'in circulation'. Indeed the bitcoins move around the globe, mostly across the Internet.

From wikipedia on the definition of a currency: "A much more general use of the word currency is anything that is used in any circumstances, as a medium of exchange"

A rise in minimum wage isn't going to do much or anything to address the disparity between the rich and poor. That's fantasy magical thinking. The disparity is a product of a deeper economic mechanic because we are a debt and consumer based economy and no longer a savings and production based economy as we were 50 years ago. China is now the production and savings based economy and their wealth is skyrocketing not because of minimum wage laws but because they are producing physical goods people want.

Raising the minimum wage only sounds good because it's easy to understand in a simple sentence uttered by a politician or news reporter. Sure go ahead and think it will work, and then believe the self serving lies they tell you later as to why it didn't work and their next failed solution.

Holy sweeping generalizations, Batman.


Many generalizations are made with anti-vaxxers as well. I've had a minimum of vaccinations purely due to being born over four decades ago. As I understand it, it's effectively impossible to scientifically test all the possible interactions between all the different concoctions in vaccines given today. It could be Russian roulette. What about respecting freedom of choice, even if it may be risky?

Many people question the corporate/profit and the connection to arguably immoral globalist corporations who develop the stuff and their connections to the governing bodies who say it's safe. There are also other reasons to question what we are told.

What the fuck is wrong with these people? BF3 works fine.

It does? I'd died when already behind cover in BF3 many times. Not in BF2 or 1942.

That's right. Lack of competition and consumer choice is the real problem.

Regulating ISP routers to be 'neutral' won't solve the problem but instead just perpetuate the duopoly and create government red tape to Internet services.

There is a finite total of bitcoins possible, which means it is by its nature a deflationary currency instead of an inflationary one. That means it is a better idea to hoard the coins than it is to invest them or spend them.

That's right. Bitcoins encourage fiscal responsibility unlike Fed Reserve Notes. Our consumer-focused economy is very much influenced by our debt-based currency.

This is in opposition to a producing economy that is wealthy and out of debt. A deflationary currency like Bitcoin is what we need to stop the ruling corporate and government elite who benefit from robbing us to their benefit.

We are slaves to debt and the ruling elite who perpetuate it.

Bitcoin does not require central banks, it has a finite supply (not based on debt)

Isn't bitcoin infinitely divisible, negating any idea of limited supply?

No. It can be divided to a maximum of eight decimal places after the whole number.

No, it's time to realize that a currency backed by no one isn't a good idea. Long past due on that actually.

It's backed by the marketplace, encryption and a huge Internet infrastructure. It's certainly not backed by 'no one' as you say. True that it is a volatile commodity right now and some kinks are still being worked out.

Note that this event isn't in the currency itself but in Mt Gox's insecure systems.

Wow. Don't hold your coins on sites like that if you can avoid it. These currencies easily allow you to have complete control of your own wallet.

Maybe the time to buy is now while the market is in shock from this.

I'm so glad they wrote out everything on the screen in plain english that was said in the trailer. They even broke from the game video to scroll it which was a really nice touch. It even scrolled across, simulating a 300baud modem.

Were it to become law, the R&D credit will exclude companies that make violent video games.

Of course the loopholes that mega corporations swimming in billions of dollars of profits and billionaires take advantage of will remain unaffected.

It will help them. Corporations very often write these sorts of laws in ways to give them an advantage in the marketplace. For example, they write the compliance rules so they are very expensive and time consuming. Then start-ups can't, well, start up. It's the modern mercantile empire.

Well, let's party like it's 2007! The textures are horrible, the AI is laughably bad and the game style is a twitch shooter with kill-replay-cam straight out of the Call of Duty:MW2 playbook. It has the depth of a teaspoon and no single player, so very little longevity.

+1. Yeah I'm not buying it till the $5 or $10 sale. Depth of a teaspoon.. Exactly!

2. Internet guffaws at senatorís quixotic proposal to ban Bitcoin. Feb 26, 2014, 20:37 LittleMe
 
I don't understand the guffaws.. It's easy to eliminate most bitcoin transactions by banning banks/exchanges/retailers from exchanging it.

The government can ban anything it wants, throw some self-serving rhetoric just as Manchn did here and then claim it is constitutional by saying using the blanket 'common good' which is what an authoritarian government does.

The economic crash was largely a failure of govt regulation. The bitcoin market is a rejection of that failed system! A big part of the volatility of the crypto market has been due to government regulators around the world banning or restricting access.

edit: and that senator is a control freak and hates technology.
