I think Carney really just wants to make Bitcoin the Global Reserve, he just brought up "Libra-like" as a Trojan Horse.  His Corn bags are full of course.  Cool

derp derp


Roach, I found your mom for you. If you are wondering what she has been doing, she is running for City Council

https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2019/08/24/this-city-wanted-be-welcoming-then-candidate-vowed-keep-marysville-white-community/?noredirect=on

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDe-QQW2kqQ

This video is well worth a watch, the way the reporters interact with her is hilarious.

The hypocrisy in the comments is quite astounding, although not at all surprising.

Marrying within a group is a common theme among many demographics, including (parts of) Jews, Muslims and Mormons among others.

Just goes to show how many people on all sides just want to hate more than anything else. The more I watch people's behaviours the more just the world appears.

Yeah no big problem, I can pickup a new language and build a new life for myself in just a week or two. Thanks buddy, what was I thinking Roll Eyes

Thatís pussyfoot talk.  If you arenít agile, you are a sitting duck.  

Meh to me it would be pussyfooting to leave your home and people behind bc some gibbering dementia patient is trying to steal your money. I understand the agile sentiment, and I could move to another country with ease, but I dont typically look to run from problems anyway. Also some of the countries on that list look to be a few regulatory clarifications away from taxing crypto, PR is not a country and as Jbreher said not tax free for Crypto, and Liberland is a joke.

Hopefully Republicans maintain control of at least one branch and this doubling of cap gains never happens. If it does happen I would sell all coins and realize profits, pay taxes, then buy most of the coins back at a new cost basis before the law went into effect. This would alleviate a lot of the problem, then Id have to consider my options.




I would agree with your position if it was as you described. In reality however, that gibbering dementia patient is highly calculated and is stealing your money, rather than just trying to.

https://www.atr.org/biden-capital-gains-tax-we-should-raise-tax-back-396-percent?amp

Biden made the remarks on Wednesday, August 21 during an interview with Iowa Public Television:

ďI believe we should, in fact, the capital gains tax should be at what the highest minimum tax should be, we should raise the tax back to 39.6 percent instead of 20 percent,Ē

"Households subject to Obamacareís 3.8 percent Net Income Investment Tax end up paying a 23.8% rate. And under Bidenís cap gains scheme, such households will face a 43.4 percent rate."

I dont think anyone brought this up yet on WO, and the media has hardly discussed it, but this is some serious shit if you are an American Bitcoiner like me. This would seriously affect my wealth when I cash out coins at key numbers like 100k and 1 million.  Trump is "no fan of Bitcoin", but holy shit, at least he would never double my tax rate.

My future ex Tulsi is out of the upcoming debate so Yang is the next best (ultra slim) hope for a true Crypto friendly candidate. Any tax crazy lefty gets nominated and Im team Trump. Mayor Pete I would predict is unlikely to make a major tax hike so he wouldnt be to bad for a dem nominee. Luckily after watching most of Grandpa Joe's interviews and debates I can confidently say that he has early dementia setting in fast and his brain would turn to mush in a grueling election. Hillary's past stumbling and feinting on the election trail looks competent to what Joe is starting to manifest.

TLDR: Fuck Grandpa Joe.

Bitcoin is the true candidate for 2020, everyone else is a pretender.
There are many countries you could move your residence adress to. We gave you a list of alternative countries with no tax and many commented about their country tax situation. So if you have 1 million, there shouldn't be a big problem for you.
The US taxes global income.

My bank continues to crack down on me. Just got a call that I can't withdraw my money from kraken to my bank account anymore.

As annoying as this is, it's also good news. If they didn't think bitcoin mattered they wouldn't bother. I'll just have to do all my business in person, maybe use the occasional atm.

Easy solution: stop using banks.
Looks like that will have to happen. If I can start buying plane tickets with bitcoin then at this point all I need them for is to pay my cell phone bill. And my family can handle that from another account.
Has Expedia removed Bitcoin payments?

Edit: Looks like it has.

Anyone need kidney?  Roll Eyes

"There are no excuses to be a nocoiner.

The biggest-ticket organ you can legally sell in the U.S. is your heart: They're going for a cool $1 million. Livers come in second, worth about $557,000 and kidneys fetch about $262,000 each.

That's like 200 BTC right there.
"

We're on the edge of printing organs like toilet paper, so selling a kidney might not be the dumbest idea for younger folks.

London financial pages tonight




Propaganda watchdog, DireWolfM14 warns that News Papers are not the unbiased, fair, and honest information delivery medium many assume them to be.  Most people today still believe that news outlets which deliver information through the use of paper products are trustworthy.  Studies by watchdog DireWolfM14 suggest, like their digital cousins these publications are wrought with bias, misinformation, omissions, and in some cases demonstrable lies.  "It's a tragedy that these organizations aren't held accountable for misleading people," DireWolfM14 stated in a recent interview.  "The fact that they can omit relevant information from a news story allows them the steer a certain narrative, and promote bias within their readership, a bias that may not develop if the readers were well informed."

When asked to provide a specific example DireWolfM14 was quoted as saying "Just pick up any news paper that has written an article or Op-Ed about bitcoin, and I'll prove to you the reporter is a shithead who doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground."

In all fairness, try being the poor sucker journalist that has to write sensibly about Arsenalís latest match, the Spratly islands, methamphetamine addiction in Bromley, the new All-New Ford Kuga, whisky tasting and Bitcoin.   And then be judged by experts in each area.

Shit is hard yo.  
Very simple solution. Print and clearly declare opinions of people from as many sides as you can identify and sensibly fit into an article. If you still feel like commenting afterwards you can do so at the end of the article. Anything else is bullshit and not journalism.

So if someone's getting shit for writing crap he's getting it in all fairness for being a journalistic failure.

Why does the crypto world seem to be infested with more than its fair share of alt-right loons?

Could it be that the leftie-loons consider anybody normal an alt-right loon?

^This!

If ďnormalĒ is being an incel and celebrating Hitlerís birthday, then yes.  

- Your resident leftie loon

Is that what you think normal people do?
HairyMaclairy is a dweeb, the truth is that Bitcoin has a lot of people who are small government and want the people to be able to control their funds. That is a conservative and right wing view. Now why would you want crypto to succeed if you're a liberal and want government control in everything? It doesn't make sense.

and of course with a community so big now you'll get some crazies.

Do you agree that Trump should be elected president for life?
I actually don't see an issue with long-term presidencies as long as proper checks and balances are installed beforehand.

In fact, lots of political horseshit boils down to either lifelong leaders being able to do whatever they want (China) or short-term leaders having zero incentive to think long-term (Western democracies).

Rather than one "lifetime" election there should just be an option for re-election beyond a second term though. That might already be enough "checks and balances".

Although, with a population this short-sighted there probably still won't be sufficient incentive in thinking long-term, since people are clearly too incompetent to anticipate anything beyond a fat sow's jump.

Good news-it would mean unbelievable prices ahead (300K-500K)

You braindead, idiot scammers in this thread have NEVER once explained how the price of Bitcoin can go to $500k or even $50k while cost of production is $3-6k.
Velocity of money.

How to manage finances and mental health are the two subjects that should be taught in every school.

So many people have no idea on either
Both deteriorate when you stop being a child and start learning "how to behave in the 'real' world".


A kid looks for all possibilities that it can possibly imagine. Then picks the best for themselves. The older they get the more they lose this ability because of dysfunctional education and become slaves to dysfunctional norms.

If you let them be with only minor directions and hints (when they ask for them) the more competent they will become. If you look for all possibilities naturally you will never stop learning and improving. Once you start trying to conform to what is "right" and "wrong" you become an unhappy, miserable and stuck-in-place cog.

my 2c about bitcoin and [helping] children.

IMHO, parents should help children achieve what they want to achieve and that's it.
Practically: get them into the best pre-school and school that you can manage/afford, guide their learning and sports activities (in balance), never deny them what they ask as far as education goes (museums, trips, etc.).
I also think that parents should pay as close to 100% of educational expenses (including college) as possible.

After this, the only way I see myself helping is a house downpayment (in expensive cities).
They have to be able to be independent, not rely on trust funds, even if your btc winnings would allow for this in a few years.
Later on, they will get their inheritance, but, hopefully, they would be ready for it then.

More important (but complementary) than official education is how you prepare them to manage financial resources (their income and capital), more so if some day they will get a substantial heritage. But to learn how to do that they really need to actually do it and that is hard to do without ANY capital to manage. So maybe set up practical lessons give them the resources to do it and clearly establish objectives, etc... and go on gradually increasing the challenges?

I have seen so many "successful" people with HUGE salaries that are far from being *wealthy* because of lack of financial education. They will always be "poor". And their children won't know any better with that example.

Blah, anyways, I don't ever plan to have children so why do I even care lol
It's not as much financial education as it is self-responsibility.

If people took their lives into their own hands nobody would be whining over salaries since they would understand that even the smallest salary is a leap towards a better future.

So responsibility for one's fate would lead to either complete content in a simple lifestyle or to a wealthy future of the individual in question.

The moment a critical mass of people understands this will be the very same moment humanity makes leaps and bounds as never seen before, since those who prefer simple lifestyles will cheer for those who push forward into the beyond of every human frontier.
And that in turn will encourage people to determine goals that are more in-line with everybody's dreams and wishes as opposed to shitting some extra digits at the end of one's net worth.


Also, this may be completely off-topic. But damn, Bitcorn goes fast when it goes.
