Another Central Bank Warns Of Bitcoin Risks
“no central issuer” – that’s why they are called decentralised.
“held liable” – that’s why they are called peer-to-peer and they are without counterparty risk.
“deposit guarantee” – your BTC etc are the owners responsibility.
‘Fit Facebook Mom’ Account Deleted By Facebook Censors Over ‘Anti-Obese Hate Speech’
“The definition of what pc mobs refer to as ‘Hate speech’ is elastic and ever-expanding. This is the threat which political correctness poses to society – it’s growing, and growing. It will not stop until it reaches its own Zeitgeist as the dominating paradigm – as police, jury and judge, to shut-down all free speech in the name of “progress”.”
“‘Fit Facebook Mom’ Maria Kang has been accused by the communitarians and censorship gods of broadcasting ‘Hate speech’ over Facebook. We’ve been dragged a long way down the path to pc hell, when this woman’s benign comments (see below) can be equated with Nazi-esque language. In reality, the politically correct communitarians and censors are now playing the real Nazi role as they try to mold the way society speaks, thinks and ultimately (with the invisible hand of social engineering) … change everyone’s behaviour. This is what your government ‘agents of change” refer to behind their curtain as Applied Behavioural Psychology.”
How long before stating a fact will be labelled ‘hate speech’ ?
Galileo saying he could prove the world was not flat would be labelled ‘anti-flat hate speech’.
The highest law of the USA says no abridging the freedom of speech so I have two words for these Nazis and the second one is ‘off’.
Former Stanford Doctoral Student Challenges Government’s No-Fly List
“Ibrahim’s routine trip to the airport took a detour that day, sending her on a nearly nine-year odyssey through the American court system — and transforming an esteemed architectural scholar into a crusader against the U.S. government’s secretive system of each year placing thousands of people, mostly foreigners, on “no-fly” lists targeting suspected terrorists.”
“We live in an age where the government punishes innocent people and calls it “Security.” I call it “Persecution”, like when the Nazis refused to allow certain people to travel because of their names.”
Bon Voyage, Bitcoin: Digital Currency Companies Leave the U.S.
“Many of the affected companies provide services for users of the digital currency Bitcoin, which will likely require them to obtain money-transmitter licenses in Washington D.C. and the 47 states that require it. The cost of obtaining these licenses, excluding bonding requirements, is approximately $7 million to $10 million, says Guillaume Babin-Tremblay, executive director of Bitcoin Embassy in Montreal, Canada.”
“This cost, along with an evolving regulatory landscape, has sparked a “mass exodus of these companies to countries with friendlier legislation regarding Bitcoin in general,” he says.”
Poorly thought through regulation is destroying the economy of the USA.
Surcharge for international CC payments in Argentina raised to 35% overnight
My Open Letter to Peter Schiff (followup from the debate today)
“First, Bitcoin must always be considered as two things: the payment network (Bitcoin) and the currency units (bitcoins). Condemnations of the latter can often be resolved with an understanding of the former. Satoshi should have named them differently to avoid this initial confusion.”
“When you suggest that bitcoins have “zero intrinsic value,” you are only considering the currency unit itself and ignoring the payment network. While I prefer the term “utility” over “intrinsic value” (because all value is subjective to the valuer), I may indeed admit that bitcoins, as currency units all by themselves, have no fundamental utility and are completely uninteresting. But – and this absolutely critical – the payment network has vast utility.”

Freedom Or Subjugation? It’s (Not) Your Choice
“It seems that nary a day goes by without Catalonia receiving some kind of threat about the dire consequences of declaring independence from Spain. If it isn’t former Spanish premier José María Aznar talking about the possibility of imprisoning Catalonian premier Artur Mas should his government grant a referendum on independence, it’s some washed up military general calling for tanks in the streets and an aerial bombardment of Barcelona.”
Doctors Warn: Avoid Genetically Modified Food
“On May 19th, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) called on “Physicians to educate their patients, the medical community, and the public to avoid GM (genetically modified) foods when possible and provide educational materials concerning GM foods and health risks.”[”
Pennsylvania Judge Sentenced For 28 Years For Selling Kids to the Prison System
“Mark Ciavarella Jr, a 61-year old former judge in Pennsylvania, has been sentenced to nearly 30 years in prison for literally selling young juveniles for cash. He was convicted of accepting money in exchange for incarcerating thousands of adults and children into a prison facility owned by a developer who was paying him under the table. The kickbacks amounted to more than $1 million.”
Kids Arrested Waiting for School Bus
““We tried to tell them that we were waiting for the bus,” Weathers said. “We weren’t catching a city bus, we were catching a yellow bus. He didn’t care. He arrested us anyways.””
You can’t wait for a bus in the USA, it would seem, without being unlawfully ordered to go home.
New studies: ‘Conspiracy theorists’ sane; government dupes crazy, hostile
“In short, the new study by Wood and Douglas suggests that the negative stereotype of the conspiracy theorist – a hostile fanatic wedded to the truth of his own fringe theory – accurately describes the people who defend the official account of 9/11, not those who dispute it.”
