A good article on how the powers can change the rules anytime they want.

http://www.ft.com/intl/cms/s/0/0589a94e-9d9f-11e0-9a70-00144feabdc0.html#axzz1PkR7ySJH

So, the state of the CDS, a product created to specifically pay out when someone defaults, is in danger. When that someone is really too big to fail, they make sure that they change the rules. What a skewed system.

Compare this to the OPEN SOURCE of bitcoin. Anyone can read it.

Because we are a captive audience.

[̲̅$̲̅(̲̅ ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°̲̅)̲̅$̲̅] From time to time i exchange e-currencies/trade like Skrill>Paypal>Remittances>Pokerstars>Amazon GC>PaySafecard to Bitcoin. [̲̅$̲̅(̲̅ ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°̲̅)̲̅$̲̅]

Yes, that's why they're called The Powers That Be. What's your point?
