Why not just spend them? You are going to lose more money exchanging them back into fiat.

What ever the act is called it is the 100% opposite of that.

Clean water act = destroying water

Patriot act = Annihilation of patriosm

Freedom act = end of freedom(not that much was left)
George Orwell was right about how the language would be used like this. But I think he would cry to know that we offer little resistance. Not because we are so oppressed, but because we are too wealthy, sated, and self absorbed.

Credit cards take 2-30 days to sort out. Users seem to not know this, but businesses know it well. So bitcoin takes an average of 10mins. vs. a week with credit, and it costs the business 3% for
the card.  Shops do better with bitcoin.

In defense of those currently failing in Iraq. No one has a plan to defeat DAESH. Some say the "Peshmerga will do it!" Unfortunately they are in no way equipped to win. There is a lot of wishful thinking about their abilities, but in reality they ONLY use a simple rolling attack that can be defended against.
Only Iran is willing and in a position to fight them hard. Of course this is to expand the areas under their control and foment a sectarian fight that will surely split the country. And the western coalition only want's to train some other persons kids to fight. Who that will be is completely unknown. We need to wake up now. The real war is coming.

“The idea that we could fashion a democracy in Iraq seemed to me unrealistic. I was concerned about it when I first heard those words,” Rumsfeld said, adding, “I’m not one who thinks that our particular template of democracy is appropriate for other countries at every moment of their histories.”

Well Don, to make it "appropriate" you fruitcakes always install psychopathic crap in your own image to run the ruins of your war scams. The results are always very predictable. Just because Americans love you and your deranged ilk in the U.S. political establishment doesn´t necessarily mean that the rest of the world does.
If it makes you feel better "Don" is among the most hated Americans now. The only people hated more are the Congress and Senate. It makes me feel better anyway.

CIA and NSA controls bitcoin. You are all part of their trial phase social/economic experiment used to determine the viability of cryptocurrency, until they decide in the near future to unleash a much more advanced form of crypto based economic tool that they can control and direct based on all the references they are gathering now.

There. Happy?  Cheesy

Pretty good, but it needs bigfoot. How could bigfoot factor into this? I know he's behind this somehow.
Nope it's not bigfoot.
Bitcoin was built by aliens originally (like Egypt Pyramids). This's why no one could ever find satoshi yet...
(He's now in a galaxy far far away)

That makes sense because bigfoot is an alien. Here is PROOF in the form of an episode of the six million dollar man. In this very episode bigfoot is discovered to be a bionic alien. It's all coming together.

If we (America) is going to pay for this it is going to require a significant increase in taxation. And an acceptance of the reality that we might still lose. 

It was the Americans who toppled the secular regime of Saddam Hussein, thereby creating the power vacuum, which ultimately resulted in the creation of the ISIS. So IMO, the Americans should bear the cost of defeating the ISIS. Else, the Americans can pay for these operations, using the revenues from Iraqi petroleum and natural gas deposits.
I agree. I think we broke it, we bought it. The ethical thing to do is stand with Iraq even if it bleeds us dry. And it will. This is why I was dead against going there in the first place. In 2003 you could not convince anyone that this would take decades. The administration predicted the war would be over in 6 months. That was over 12 years ago and the end is no where in sight. Now we have only bad choices. If I were king I would draft 500,000 troops and get this over. It is going to take tens of thousands of U.S. lives and years, but we would win if we committed. 

Lesson for next time... Don't poke the fucking bear!

I would be worried about what happens when China's fickle regime decides to incorporate your farm into the glorious communist state. If your an American you may be surprised at how different business is there. You will have little protection.
832  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Bitcoin Manipulation on: June 08, 2015, 06:54:25 PM
Also, when attempting to move a market there is a very high chance that it will not work. So perhaps 1000BTC will move it a bit, but you may just be throwing away a quarter of a million dollars.
833  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Iraq PM: We Lost 2,300 American Humvees to ISIS in Mosul Alone on: June 08, 2015, 04:02:14 PM
What I mean by that is the enemy can fight for less money against an air campaign. Each time an airplane makes a sortie it burns something like $2000 an hour in fuel. The bombs it drops cost more than the vehicle they hit. A hellfire missile costs $70,00 while an old pickup truck with a heavy machine gun costs half as much. So unless Iraq is willing to spend billions on an air campaign, they are going to have to fight these vehicles on the ground with cheaper indirect fire weapons.  

Oh common, the Americans have spent more than $2 trillion in Iraq so far. Why can't they spend a few million more to stop the ISIS advancing? Also, the real economic cost if the ISIS capture Baghdad, or some of the major Iraqi oilfields will be in hundreds of billions of USD. So it will be better to spend some money now, rather than incurring huge costs later.
We did not have the 2 trillion we already spent. lol. And defeating DAESH will cost many billions more. Each time a jet flies a sortie it carries about 1/3 of a million dollars in ordinance. Let's say each time they get three vehicles. In that case just to get the 2,300 HMMWVs will cost $245,336,333.33. Those HMMWVs are just the tip of the iceberg. There are all sorts of checkpoints, artillery, tens of thousands of other vehicles, etc.
At some point after degrading all these assets we still have to get out of our vehicles and fight with small arms. This is the most dangerous phase and will require motivated and highly trained troops. Troops Iraq does not have.  If we (America) is going to pay for this it is going to require a significant increase in taxation. And an acceptance of the reality that we might still lose.

Despite how easy it looks in the movies it is very hard to hit these things in an urban environment. Vehicles are easy to hide or disguise from the air.

Humvees might be difficult to spot from the air, when they are not moving. I was not referring about this situation. When 10 or 15 of these vehicles advance towards the Kurdish Peshmerga positions, armed with high-intensity explosives, I don't think that they will be that hard to distinguish from the other civilian vehicles. 
Ah yes. A vehicle out in the open desert, especially at night, is an easy target. They likely do not have civilians near them when fighting, they are less able to hide their heat signature. This is when we get them.
But they try their best to shoot, move, then hide before the airstrike comes. If an aircraft is on station then it could be minutes, if not it could take an hour or more to show up. Other problems include the enemy possessing better anti-air weapons and economic advantage. What I mean by that is the enemy can fight for less money against an air campaign. Each time an airplane makes a sortie it burns something like $2000 an hour in fuel. The bombs it drops cost more than the vehicle they hit. A hellfire missile costs $70,00 while an old pickup truck with a heavy machine gun costs half as much.

This only happens in "gun free zones" like NYC. In the rest of the U.S. a crook would be risking his life to try this.

ISIS issued a currency made of precious metals. IMO they'd be the last kind of peopled to use cryptocurrencies in the plant.



I don't think these inbreeds morons know how to use cryptocurrencies myself. They'll probably use some archaic form of money just like their worldview.

It would be comforting if they were stupid. In reality they are succeeding in forming their caliphate. They do know how to use BTC and do use it. This should come as no surprise to anyone. DAESH has shown an ability to use technology in furtherance of their media, communication, and surveillance capabilities. They are not anti-technology.
This is also not a reason to disparage bitcoin. It's just money and all sorts of people are attracted to that. Just as DAESH striking gold coins is no reason to avoid gold.

838  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Iraq PM: We Lost 2,300 American Humvees to ISIS in Mosul Alone on: June 08, 2015, 01:40:13 PM
Yes. Obviously if you´re manning a defensive position and see 5-10 Humvees laden with high explosives approaching you don´t really want to stick around.

How hard it is to take out these Humvees in air-strikes? As I can see from the news, the ISIS is not even trying to hide these vehicles. They are always using them to attack the Iraqi Army / Peshmerga locations. Why can't the American pilots destroy these vehicles by dropping bombs on top of them? They have been conducting air strikes for many months now.

Currently about 75% of the sorties are returning without dropping their bombs. Despite how easy it looks in the movies it is very hard to hit these things in an urban environment. Vehicles are easy to hide or disguise from the air. And our policies on civilian casualties require someone on the ground and observing that the target is free of non-combatants.
The enemy has been fighting against airplanes for a generation now and they know how to mitigate some of the risk. They bivouac in civilian homes, they hide military vehicles in the garage and patrol using civilian vehicles or on foot, they shuffle things around when a sandstorm comes; they know what they are doing. These are not the guys in street clothing spraying and praying from the middle of the street. Those guys are dead now and these are the ones who survived and learned.
839  Other / Politics & Society / Re: What do you think about Islam ? on: June 04, 2015, 06:16:09 PM
I'm also an Atheist, but I spend a lot of time in Islamic lands and have come to like the culture. The kindness and hospitality I have experienced from Muslims has shown me the peaceful side of Islam that most Americans never see or even hear about.

So, I don't hate religion, I just don't believe in a God. I think people are people and some find love in their faith while others use it to further their hate. That's why in Islam we see beautiful acts of mercy as well as DAESH's absurd violence.

More good stuff!
@melody82, I have also largely divested my stock positions because I also think the market is overvalued, distorted by QE, and gamed with things like high frequency trading. But even when I was making money in it I rarely got 20% on anything. I should have you pick my stocks, lol. I usually only ended up with 12-15% / year, if that.

And I don't want to disparage gambling. It is a fun activity. Sure it costs some money, but so do many things that never offer the chance of going home with more cash. I only cringe when I see someone asking for a gambling loan so they can "invest" it to win back their losses.

@SebastianJu Thanks for your response also! Perhaps I have an answer to your search for a profitable gambling system? Just measure your success in how much fun you had at the casino.  Cheesy
