Those most able to influence government gain the most benefits and do so at the expense of those with less influence. <sarcasm>But maybe if we pray vote hard enough, we'll get what we want.</sarcasm>

South Korea’s Korbit Introduces ‘Aggregator for Cross-Border Payouts’ SEOUL, Feb. 5, 2016 — The #Bitcoin and blockchain service Korbit has unveiled a new service called Hyphen that the company calls an “aggregator for cross-border payouts settled via distributed ledgers.” The new platform allows users to make direct-to-bank payouts across 24 countries worldwide. Hyphen takes a 1% fee per transfer that they claim is resolved in a secure digital fashion via blockchain technology.

+Fran Mickelson , that's precisely why we open up our beliefs to challenge, question, etc from others.

+Chuck Karish , while many are distracted by trying to define when life starts, I'm of the opinion that what's important is when a life has the qualities to have the Right to Life such that it's the rightful owner of the decision of whether or not it wants to continue its own life.

Nailed to a cross until you suffocate, thorns jammed into your scalp, and a spear to the liver, plus three days in a cave?

I'd say that qualifies. It's at least "annoying". ;-)

There are bigger WTFs in Christian mythology to fry.

Not sure TPP is that bad. There are some bad things in it, but reduction of tarriffs are good.

FWIW, I disagree with +Eco Traveler 's sentiment. It's not the amount of money one makes that matters.
 
Meanwhile he might be a union worker who makes more than any of those people ever will, increasingly unlikely in today's world, but if we had the wages the unions fought for and won in the 60s/70s, we'd each be earning over $20 per hour today.

I wouldn't presume that the street-sweeper man in the picture is so bad off: He's employed, doing honest work, work that needs to be done, and might be (to some) surprisingly well-paid (Sanitation workers employed [or contracted] by-- typically --city governments are paid more substantially than many).

Plainly the gold lady has a much better grasp of the bigger picture of Reality in Civilization than that blue one.  It would be great if her child were to, as she said, make a better world for the street-sweeper man as he's already doing the same as if return, considering the alternative(s).

Alternatives like that work that needs to be done delegated to that blue one instead of that oh so villainous man--dear God, all the streets would look like shit!  You know it, and I know it!

Well I don't think that either of those children deserve that, all because of what on that blue one's behalf!? ???  Foul wench sorcery!  No wonder that boy there looks like a future menace!  Burn her!  Burn the witch! hehehehe

My +Reason  colleague Shikha Dalmia​ broke an important aspect of the Flint water crisis--that the idiotic and potentially criminally negligent plan was forced on the city not by "austerity measures" or "treating government like a business" but the exact opposite. That is, the plan that has contaminated the supply and poisoned children was a misbegotten local stimulus project. Critics don't want to admit that, even as Dalmia points out that it would be easier to sue private utilities when they screw up.
Job growth in a depressed city was a key motivation behind new pipeline.

+Anarchist , oh, yeah :-)

Well, I would've thought Rand didn't stand a chance, either.

Really good food but not worth the price considering the absence of table service.
