The best way to fight this is to prove Bitcoin can be used for GOOD as well.

I just wish that people who don't understand a particular subject were prohibited from making rulings/laws about it.

The best way to fight this is to prove Bitcoin can be used for GOOD as well.  See my sig!  Or come up with other POSITIVE uses for Bitcoin and implement them.  We must lead by example.

Indeed, i said something along these lines earlier today.

We need people to stand up in the news and shout back, pick a public fight with these numbskulls and show them exactly how stupid they are.

The by product of course would be more publicity for bitcoin, and hopefully some politicians feeling really stupid.

ZOMG Moo!

Then congress wouldn't be able to pass any new laws or rules.

That wouldn't be any fun now would it?

Schumer the schmuck. I'll just call him Schmuker from now on.

Time is money. This means that if you have spare time, you can use it to make money.

Modular, open, and stack-able miner case.

I wish someone would stand up at one of Ben Bernanke's news conferences and say 'did you realize people buy drugs with your evil currency??'
