Why Bitcoin Is the Most Dangerous Global Scam in 20 Years
Post Date: 2018-02-04 00:47:53 by Gatlin
When bitcoin inevitably crashes, inexperienced investors who believed the hype could lose everything. Originally published by Vivek Wadhwa on LinkedIn: "Why Bitcoin Is the Largest Ponzi Scheme in Human History During the late '90s, Silicon Valley venture capitalists and New York City investment bankers used phrases such as "monetizing eyeballs," "stickiness," and "B2C" to justify the ridiculous valuations of internet companies. They claimed conventional methods were inapplicable in valuing the dot-com companies -- which had no revenue -- because we were entering an entirely new economy. Believing these people, and afraid to miss out on ...

Forget treason, Bannon opens a window on the serious possibility of money laundering
Post Date: 2018-01-05 10:34:17 by Willie Green
Trump watchers have been treated to a world-class cage match over the last couple of days between President Donald Trump and one of his political Svengalis, Steve Bannon.Lots of attention has been lavished on Bannon's charge, leveled in a new book by the journalist Michael Wolff, that Trump's son, Donald Jr., engaged in "treasonous" behavior by meeting with a Russian lawyer in Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential campaign. There are also requisite antics involving others in the Trump clan and the White House.All of that is entertaining, as is Trump's furious counterattack. He posits that Bannon has "lost his mind" and on Wednesday night unleashed one of ...

Nine Million American Men Pushed Out of Workforce by Cheap-Labor Policies, Says Obama Economist immigration by Neil Munro 19 Dec 2017 Nine million working-age men have been pushed out of the workforce by the federal governments salary-cutting economic strategy, says a former economist for former President Barack Obama. The admission comes as some legislators in Congress renew their push for a huge dreamer amnesty that would increase the number of low-wage foreign workers who can take U.S. jobs. The nine million number comes from a new op-ed by Jason Furman, a top economic advisor to Obama. Without mentioning cheap-labor labor, Furman writes in the Wall Street ...
Germans Fear Tax Cut Will Spur US Investment and Growth
Post Date: 2017-12-21 02:54:18 by Tooconservative
The Democrats in Congress and the press have frantically tried to convince the American people that cutting businesses taxes wont do any good. This view is delusional, but we hear it so often it almost begins to sound plausible. Here is a contrary view from a different source, German industry: Germans fear huge loss of jobs from US tax reform. German investment in the US is expected to rise by 39 billion because of lower US corporate taxes. While Americans are anxiously awaiting full details of the tax bill now being finalized in Congress, German economists are warning that the changes sought by President Donald Trump mean that significant amounts of new investment ...
Bitcoin On Fire: Approaching $14K
Post Date: 2017-12-06 20:06:25 by Pinguinite
I'm sure a pullback is due at some point, but this is surpassing my most optimistic expectations. It's gone up about 15% in 24 hours, which was already a price from which a retrace would have been normal and expected. Next week, the CME is set to start trading "Bitcoin Futures" which are to be settled in cash, something I would equate to simply a betting house for what the real bitcoin price will be, and likely being implemented solely for the purpose of attempting to suppress the true bitcoin supply/demand price. They might as well be "futures" trading on daily temperature highs for some random US city. It would be just as legitimate. I am now wondering if ...
A College Football Player Lost His Scholarship Because of YouTube Videos. Now He's Fighting Back.
Post Date: 2017-12-02 13:54:47 by Deckard
While technically a nonprofit, the National Collegiate Athletic Association pulls down nearly $1 billion in annual revenues, thanks in large part to multi-million-dollar deals with television networks that want to showcase America's best college athletes playing football, basketball, and a bunch of other sports. There's nothing wrong with that, of course. The market for televised sports is hotter, and more valuable, than it's ever been. But when one of those valuable student-athletes had the nerve to earn a few thousand dollars running a popular YouTube channelone that gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the life of a college football playerthe NCAA told him to ...
America’s First Legal Weed Drive-Thru Is Here — and It’s Everything You Imagined
Post Date: 2017-11-27 01:21:16 by Hondo68
(ANTIMEDIA) Las Vegas, NV A few months after recreational cannabis became legal in Nevada, Las Vegas now has its very own weed drive-thru. The NuWu Cannabis Marketplace is a cannabis megastore recently opened by the Paiute tribe. It is located on tribal lands and takes up 16,000 square feet, making it the largest dispensary in the area. The massive store employs over 100 people and offers a wide variety of cannabis products, including concentrates, edibles, vape pens and cartridges, pre-roll joints, and topical treatments. NuWu recently took a former bank window and converted it to a drive-thru, hoping to get each customer in and out in under 90 seconds. They launched ...

ANTIMEDIA) Ontario, Canada Two former top law enforcement officials in Canada who previously campaigned against cannabis legalization are now going into the business. CBC News reports that Former OPP commissioner, MP, and federal Conservative cabinet minister Julian Fantino and former RCMP deputy commissioner Raf Souccar launched a business Tuesday that aims to connect medical patients with quality cannabis. The launch comes eight months before Canada legalizes recreational weed. The news is particularly noteworthy because both men previously issued harsh rebukes of legalizing the plant. CBC noted: Both men spent decades battling illegal drug use ...
CBS Badly Misplayed Their Hand By Making 'Star Trek: Discovery' A Paid Streaming Exclusive [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2017-11-01 14:18:20 by Willie Green
I was excited to watch Star Trek: Discovery last night, CBSs return to a true Star Trek show in the age of JJ Abrams blockbusters. I set my DVR and gave it viewing priority over Fear the Walking Dead, because all the early buzz Id heard was stellar. But while I really did like the show, the process of watching it was a total disaster. Though Id set the recording earlier, football pushed all of CBSs programming out of whack so that 20 minutes of some Oprah special aired during the Star Trek: Discovery recording. I watched anyway, as there was extra time in the recording, so I thought maybe cable had adjusted according and squeezed in the full show by ...

Professional teams across four major sports leagues that sometimes stayed in Trump hotels are apparently now finding different lodging while on the road, according to a report Thursday. An investigation by the Washington Post found that none of the 105 teams that responded from the total of 123 franchises from the National Basketball Association, the National Football League, the National Hockey League or Major League Baseball would confirm that it stays at a Trump-branded property while on the road. Of the teams that responded, 18 declined to comment and 71 indicated that they hadnt stayed at Trump hotels in recent years. A total of 17 confirmed a visit to a Trump property within the ...

Another Reason for the Electric Car Push?
Post Date: 2017-09-16 11:46:16 by Deckard
Whenever the government is rabidly enthusiastic about something you can be reasonably sure you shouldnt be.Electric cars are being pushed for all kinds of reasons, none of them beneficial to us. If that werent the case, then it wouldnt be necessary to push (mandate, subsidize) electric cars. They would be embraced as naturally as freely as a better smartphone or more-delicious (and cheaper) hamburger. Of course, it is necessary to push them. The why gets interesting.One of the reasons for the electric car push has to do with their very high cost. Which if electric cars are to become mass-market cars necessarily entails more and higher debt ...
I Became a Pot Felon at 18. I'm Owed More Than an Apology.
Post Date: 2017-08-25 07:22:40 by Deckard
Maybe reparations from the federal government are in order.When asked why I advocate for legalization of recreational drugs, I give a simple answer: Because the government doesn't know what's best for me or others. But there's another reason, and it's far more personal. Twenty-five years ago, as a college freshman, I was arrested by undercover cops for selling $80 worth of marijuana to fellow students. I was convicted of two felonies: distribution and possession of a narcotic. I spent a month in jail. Long after the ordeal, I feel resentment at the United States government and the old conservative guard who still mostly run it. It's important to understand that becoming ...
Economics Is Dead

Economics Is Dead August 3, 2017 By: The Mogambo Guru Alas, all my dreams of achieving immortality through my Staggering Mogambo Brilliance (SMB) in economics are turning to bitter dust. This is probably because I am not very bright have never had an original thought in my whole life. For the record, though, I am officially blaming this outrage on everybody but me. Yet, in my deep despair, I can still delight in childishly upstaging real geniuses, like Albert Einstein, who said something to the effect that compound interest was a miracle. Here is where I haughtily say, with a delicious hint of condescending disdain in my voice, Einstein? Ha! What does a theoretical physicist ...

You may be aware that cops can simply steal yes, thats exactly the correct word cash found on your person or in your vehicle, in the course of a traffic stop, say solely on account of it being an excessive amount.Excessive being entirely up to them to define.It could be $10,000 or $1,000. There is no specific amount of cash defined by statute that crosses a legal threshold. Thus, one cannot know ahead of time not to carry, say, $5,000 but $500 is ok.It is enough that a government worker with a gun considers whatever cash you are found to have in your possession excessive.And these armed government workers can ...
How the U.S. Postal Service has helped turn Amazon into a giant by undercharging them by $1.46 a package on postage

Snapchat IPO Investors Have Now All Lost Money on Snap Stock
Post Date: 2017-07-12 19:20:41 by cranky
Snap stock has fallen below its IPO price of $17 for the first time, roughly four months after the maker of Snapchat went public in March. After briefly touching the $17 threshold in mid-June, Snap's stock price fell to an all-time low of $16.99 at market close on Monday. That means all the investors who bought into the disappearing-message app company's much-hyped stock market debut have officially lost money. Most people who bought Snap (snap, -1.49%) stock, which opened its first trading day at $24soaring 41% out of the gatehave lost even more. An Uber driver who invested when shares hit $25 on Snap's IPO day has lost 32% of his money. And Snap has shed more ...
Minimum wage set to drop in Missouri
Post Date: 2017-07-06 17:11:45 by Hondo68
© Provided by CBS Interactive Inc. 0705-en-reynolds-minwage.jpg ST. LOUIS -- Cities all over the United States have been boosting their minimum wage. It's up to $15 an hour in Seattle, but it's going in the opposite direction in St. Louis, Missouri. Amer Hawatmeh's family-owned restaurant in downtown St. Louis is struggling. Along with rising sales taxes, and meat prices, a minimum wage hike to $10 an hour two months ago made it expensive to stay open. So he's cut back from five to two days a week for lunch. His hamburgers are smaller, his entrees pricier and his customers scarcer. Hawatmeh believes it's not the government, but a combination of worker determination ...
Will the Government Ruin Self-Driving Cars?
Post Date: 2017-07-05 21:08:02 by Anthem
Over the past several decades, cars have become increasingly high tech allowing for computers to take larger roles in the routine functions of the car. Computerized functions have been a boon to consumers, who advantage from greater reliability and efficiency, but also to criminal hackers who advantage from greater vulnerability. Starting around the turn of the last decade tech enthusiasts started toying around with the concept of hacking into cars. So-called white hat hackers, who seek out exploits in technology so companies can fix them, successfully attempted to remotely disable a sedans breaks and allowed for companies to take hacking into consideration ...

U.S. first quarter economic growth revised up on jump in consumer spending
Post Date: 2017-06-29 17:15:06 by Justified
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. economy slowed less than feared in the first quarter due largely to a jump in consumer spending, providing a slightly more encouraging outlook for growth this year. Gross domestic product increased at a 1.4 percent annual rate instead of the 1.2 percent reported last month, the Commerce Department said in its final assessment for the period on Thursday. The reading was the worst since the second quarter of 2016 but above analysts' expectations, easing fears the economy had been hobbled at the start of this year. The government had pegged first-quarter growth at a paltry 0.7 percent in its first estimate in April. "The upward revision occurred even ...
