that is the thing though...he can't "make" his own money...Bit coins have to be "harvested" with a mining server that basically is just crunching data chunks for research labs and such...the "coin" is basically payment after your computer processes a certain amount of data time...even he can't change that, it is written into the basic code of the mining software. If he changed it for himself then yes, he would collapse the Bit coin market and make it all worthless.
the trick to the whole Bit coin mining process is to get the right system that can process data at the required rate in a reasonable amount of time, usually weeks but sometimes months. now you can also just "mine" someone else's server which helps them but also gets you time logged towards your own "coin". the people making the killing are those that sell the specialized mining servers, they can run anywhere from $5K to $15K to set up and get running but if you run them 24/7/365, you should get enough Bit coins mined that they pay for themselves in the first year or so. Many people just keep pumping money into multiple miner servers and wind up after a few years pulling down 100's of coins a year, even 1000's.
Figure this guy started it all in 2009 - 7 years ago...mining by himself - 1 Million coins = about 150K coins a year.
With more people mining however, your time per coin is going UP and the currency accumulation rate goes down. As always, those at the start have all the coin now, newbies r screwed.
It is basically the new Gold Standard. Limited supply, and value goes up and down according to the demand, or lack of demand, for it.
newbies aren't screwed. you might not get as big a gain.
I'm making 2.34% interest on a Bitcoin Savings account - find that at your local fiat bank.
I bought into bitcoin when it was around $170. look at it now.
AND, it can still go up - especially as the US dollar value drops.
When Greece had all their runs on the bank, they were moving their money into bitcoin.
Venezuela is doing it, and watch Puerto Rico.
Even at that, we don't get $10US thinking it's going to double overnight.
As a growing number of busineses start to except bitcoin, it's price will further stabilize.
The US is slow to adopt this, other countries (including Canada) have a greater acceptance.

Chuck Todd is a democrat right? He really has no business even asking that question Its up to GOP members to decide this not him.

He is correct. I think we should have a truth in labeling laws which would be constitutional!
If your going to allow men in than it can no longer be called the ladies room.
You must just rename it the restroom then women wont go in any longer and only the transgendered will use them.

Someone should really sue her for slander

I think Fellal is a liberal. This will likely be a hatchet job to create a rewriting of history something Hollywood loves to do. Since modern kids don’t know history all they know is whats in the movies.

And IM sure he was using a Obama free phone we are paying for.
Why cant we make the Obama phone tax voluntary so we can decide if we want to help these people or not?

Yep but if your Janet Reno you can troll around town in your PU and pick up as many underage girls as you want.
Democrats are above the law.
Men can go in women’s bathrooms and flash the young girls and its 100% legal if your in drag..
Stupid A h even black people cant stand black lives mater socialist. They can see them for who they really are.

Well the only way they will understand is to stop going there.
You may not remember (since it was before the internet) when K-Mart became anti gun and removed all guns from its sporting goods section and then supported the anti gun show rosie. We boycotted them into bankruptcy and they were bought out by sears. Boycotts do work it ran K-Mart into bankruptcy.
You should stay out of stores like this even if they change there mind because you dont want to give your money to such people.
They are basically supporting child molesters and flashers.
If someone gets hurt or flashed I hope they sue them for allowing and supporting the crime.
The manager should also be arrested if that happens.

I have news for America thats what I am hearing from all the fathers that they are fed up with this and these freaks will get beat up.
We need to remember that before Obama these were called Drag Queens it is perversion pure and simple it is not something you are born with its a choice.
 April 26, 2016 at 11:23am
BS exposing yourself to a woman is a crime that law has not been changed!
If a transgendered is caught exposing himself in a ladies bathroom he needs to be arrested.
We have lots of sick perverts and it appears that the they are attempting to make all of this OK.
Police departments everywhere need to notify target and the rest that its a crime to expose yourself in a ladies bathroom and if they are caught allowing it or aiding in it that they to will also be arrested.

I dont think most people on Facebook even have a clue who he is.

Latest news Hillary has a team of paid bloggers to come in here and on Twitter and ATTACK anyone who speaks out against here. So be on the lookout for these FAKE commenters who are Paid Hillary employees.
They will likely be using the canned replies hillary gives and know nothing about her history.
So instead of "paid Soros troll" dissenters will now be labeled "paid hillary trolls"?

As the welfare class gets concentrated in a town and the tax payers move out to the outskirts they take over the mayors office and start running the towns into the ground.
Its happening to all American towns.
It wont stop till people are told more more welfare you have to work. Or that if your on Welfare you can not vote.
These welfare classes are socialist and want higher taxes and more welfare. Its destroying America.

Yep the union did the same thing last time. This is typical union tactics.
We need to protect companies from unions. Union striking for wages needs to be outlawed.
We flat out need to ban some unions and we need to do away with payroll deduction for union dues.
In our state, we have the "Good Samaritan LAW", that when someone who helps in aiding a person who has been criminally assaulted, even if he/she dies in the process (CPR, etc), cannot be sued for doing the right thing. Not all states have this and I believe NYC is another city that you can be sued for helping someone. Chicago, L.A., SF, NYC, and a few others have no Good Samaritan laws.
Man ....that is dark humor at its best.
All it would have taken was one person to pull him to the side walk. Just one. Until the black people have had enough, nothing will change. If they don't care why should anyone else.
