    From Business Insider: The shots fired by governments to fight its war on cash may have several unintended casualties: 1. Privacy Cashless transactions would always include some intermediary or third-party. Increased government access to personal transactions and records. Certain types of transactions (gambling, etc.) could be barred or frozen by governments. Decentralized cryptocurrency could be an alternative for such transactions

    The War on Cash, banning cash = To monitor and record every transaction; to monitor your behavior; to observe where you go, who you donate to, who you associate with; what businesses and organizations you patronize; what you buy; what you own; your patterns and behaviors and preferences; how much you save … To maximize collection of fees, fines and taxes, simply impose fees and skim them right off of every transaction To exercise total control: the ability to shut down any business, bank account, credit line; or all transactions. When all cash is gone and the computer says you’ve been frozen, every transaction is declined, who do you buy or sell or save? Provides the mechanism to prevent the common people from the ability to escape the ravages of mass inflation when it occurs by freezing, limiting how much or stopping altogether the conversion of electronic currency by purchasing hard assets such as gold or silver.

    Well, maybe I can convince you to pay $5,000 for a used golf ball. I doubt it, because it's a known quantity that you can compare it to other things and find out its value is right around zero. Bitcoin is a collection of digital numbers that has value because people read the name 'coin' and other people before them have said it has value. It only exists as a currency in the mind and in computers. You can't even hold it like a zinc penny. The value can potentially go through the stratosphere short term but what goes up must come down. An EMP for example would completely destroy bitcoin.

    Digital currency has no inherent value and is only as valuable as people perceive it to be. The article is correct, it is backed by nothing. Sooner or later it will be worth nothing. There is so much that can go wrong with Bitcoin, including a better currency that perhaps has real value taking its place. That said, I'd be rich if I had went all in when I first heard of it.

    Just playing Devils Advocate... US dollars used to be backed by gold, which gave them their value. What is a digital currency backed by?

    AZJoe replied to a thread War Quotes in Grassroots Central
    A Vietnam Veteran's take on war from lewrockwell.com: Though being ex-military with two combat tours in Vietnam (5th Special Forces Gp) and having a 60% VA disability to show for it) and two sons as military combat pilots I’ve belatedly come to the conclusion that no war we’ve ever engaged in ever settled anything for the better. The Civil War left this nation with psychic which persist to this day. WW I brought about the successful birth of Russian communism, which begat WW II, Red China, the Korean War, Vietnam, the Cold War, the idiotic Gulf War (which allowed us to congratulate ourselves over our ability to beat the hell out of a bunch of helpless camel-jockeys), and gave birth to the state of Israel, which has been stirring up trouble in the Middle East ever since and might well precipitate WW III. Our nation had long periods of no significant standing armies at all – from our own revolution to the Civil War, and thereafter until WW I the US had nothing but Western frontier troops, and after WW I until WW II we had little but underfunded nominal military forces. It wasn’t until the Korean War that we began maintaining a permanent standing military, which allowed us to leap into Vietnam, a bottomless quagmire, which we finally left, disillusioned, exhausted, and finally humiliated by a bunch of bandy-legged little rice-farmers, a ridiculous war in which success or failure was tallied by the “body-count.”

    Insider Trading: Not only did MGM CEO and Chairman James Murren dump 450,000 shares, but MGM officers and directors, dumped $200 million of shares in a one week period in September. Contrary to Zippy's options theory, less than 1 % of these sales were options according to the SEC insider transactions reports. There was also heavy dumping of MGM shares by insiders more than six months ago as well, but the one week of dumping by insiders in September was massive. During the same time period there was no similar dumping by insiders at Wynn Resorts or LVS Sands resorts as both had steady and continuous net accumulations by insiders.

    ANOTHER Drag Queen Entertains Small Children, This Time at Michelle Obama Library (REACTION) Anthony Brian Logan Published on Oct 17, 2017 A Long Beach congressional candidate says he’s “outraged” after a drag queen sporting demon-like horns was invited to read to children at a local library. Omar Navarro, a Republican candidate looking to unseat Maxine Waters for the 43rd District, posted an image of performer Xochi Mochi reading to kids as part of the Drag Queen Story Hour at the Michelle Obama Neighborhood Library on Saturday.

    That was a great interview from Sen. Paul (not that I'm surprised). He schooled those panelists so much that they looked like they were ready to leave for recess. Their questions were loaded and misleading, but Sen. Paul still knocked them out the park. I'll bet they had to Google "economies of scale" after his interview. :D

    Nine shareholders in Uranium One just happened to provide more than $145 million in donations to the Clinton Foundation in the run-up to State Department approval. The Clintons took the cash from Uranium One officials before the deal was approved by Hillary Clinton’s State Department. The Clintons hid the donations which is a clear violation of the Memorandum of Understanding Hillary Clinton signed with the Obama administration wherein she promised and agreed to publicly disclose all donations during her tenure as Secreatary of State. … Sara Carter of Circa News interviewed Victoria Toensing, a lawyer for the FBI informant. The FBI informant was actually threatened by the Obama administration for speaking out about the corruption he witnessed while he was providing information. Toensing said her client “is not only afraid of the Russian people, but he is afraid of the US government because of the threats the Obama administration made against him.”

    Excerpts from former Miramax screenwriter Scott Rosenberg's Facebook post, whose mentor was Weinstein throughout the 1990's and early 2000's: So, yeah, I was there. And let me tell you one thing. Let’s be perfectly clear about one thing: Everybody-fucking-knew. Not that he was raping. No, that we never heard. But we were aware of a certain pattern of overly-aggressive behavior that was rather dreadful. We knew about the man’s hunger; his fervor; his appetite.

    Plus now, under Obamacare, insurance is not even allowed to offer discount for healthy lifestyle beyond being a non-smoker. Healthy lifestyles pay higher premiums the same as unhealthy lifestyles. The law subsidizes unhealthy lifestyles. We know what happens to anything you subsidize. "Under Obamacare, a 30-year-old male, with a BMI of 18, who works out 5-6 days a week, eats as healthy as possible, and has absolutely no health problems whatsoever, ends up paying the same amount in premiums as a 30-year-old male who is 600lbs, eats two pizzas and drinks two 2-liter sodas daily, and has been previously told by his doctor that he needs to lose weight, or be at risk for heart disease and diabetes."

    Reform it? End all government welfare. So he wants to reform welfare. Does that include the world's largest welfare queen, Israel? Let's start with ending all foreign welfare (aka foreign aid).
