Good. I think that bitcoin will defeat the Fed's runaway inflation, but I don't think it will defeat their ability to steal, overall. The amounts they can steal using the IRS and other "enforcement arms" are almost as great as the amounts which can be stolen via inflation. (Perhaps not quite. I'd be willing to be corrected here, if someone understands the actual numbers and systems a lot better than I do. Certainly, the vast majority of the theft of the past 100 years has been via inflation, but automated systems have largely outpaced the system of inflation. Also, as inflation occurs, it diminishes the value of the labor that's being stolen.)

This will bring currency stability to something that actually has value, making the labor of their slaves more valuable, and making society as a whole more productive, as the dollar is transitioned away from. It will also eliminate a lot of "intermediary" parasites, who will then find themselves in the position of being preyed upon. This is perhaps a better situation than the one we now inhabit, so I'm all for it, but I'm not as excited about bitcoin as many others are.

Bitcoin, to be truly valuable, must be thought of as "an alternative to widespread false-authority-legitimized theft." I don't think this is the case now, and I don't think it will be the case in the future, because it's too easy to get excited by the trivial and short-term. The central bankers, on the other hand, think long-term, as they should.

Definitely a step in the right direction but it's hard for me to get too excited about because it still treats business between consenting adults as a granted "privilege".

Wow. Sad to hear Rand say something like this. He just lost my support. :( We should be meddling in their affairs just as much as they should be meddling in ours. What ever happened to "Free trade with all, entangling alliances with none."?

Not so sure about that. You might want to reconsider, to some small extent. Read this:

Why would the front office want to ditch one of the top two or three coaches in the league? His ability to shape players is unparalleled. The talk of limiting players' minutes is nonsense. Games are 48 minutes, a perfect length for a near-peak interval training session, not even close to a recipe for near-certain injury as many are trying to claim. 
There is chatter that the enmity with the Chicago Bulls ’ front office and the sideline is so insurmountable that head coach Tom Thibodeau is on the outs when the 2014-15 commences...

Wow, really neat pictures. I have thought for a long time that as some societies continue to shift away from organized religion eventually there may be a surplus of unused churches that could be put to other uses. For example there are lots of small brick churches scattered about Chicago IL that exhibit beautiful craftsmanship that could be converted to spectacular single family homes one day. 
(20 Images & A Video)  Crumbling and abandoned, the last remnants of Russia's wooden churches lay dotted in the woodlands of the country's north-western corner.Forgotten by many and in the process of being reclaimed by nature, the few remaining churches are exposed to the harsh elements without any hope of being salvaged, but one photographer is determined to capture pictures of the forgotten structures - with breathtaking results.Preserved: This...

Yes. No need for a place to worship the Easter Bunny any longer --more of a place for holding town meetings to figure out how to remove our tyrants.

So sad...we used to love this place. But they've really gone down hill. I think that as their business dwindles they cut corners and it shows. Just gave them another chance because of a Groupon and they tried not to accept it- said I needed the printed Groupon, that the one on my phone wasnt good enough. Very rude and adament about it too. Last time we'll be coming in.
