The Last Hour
"In order for currencies to be 'exchangeable' they have to be backed by something," is the remarkably ironic initial comment from none other than debaser-of-the-entirely-fiat-dollar Alan Greenspan when asked about the "bubble in bitcoin," by Bloomberg TV's Trish Regan. Unable to "identify the intrinsic" backing of Bitcoin (or see bubbles in equity, credit, real estate, or greater fools) Greenspan is, apparently, capable of identifying Bitcoin "as a bubble," because "there is no fundamental means of "repaying' it by any means that is universally accepted." The farcical double-speak continues as the Maestro does a great job of making Bitcoin (which Ron Paul earlier noted could be the "destroyer of the dollar") look even better than the readily-printed fiat we meddle with every day.
I was walking home one evening and came upon a clearly depressed man standing at the edge of a bridge, looking like he was about to jump. I called out to him to wait, and ran over to see what was the matter.
"It's this country," he lamented. "It's falling into ruin and there's nothing I can do about it. The election was the last straw. I don't want to live on this planet anymore."
"Well cheer up," I said. "We're all in this together. Say, are you a conservative, or a libertarian?"
"A libertarian," he said.
Somebody made a thread over at FreedomWorks because they were concerned about the Atlas V launching another secret payload off the coast of Cali. Reasoning doesn't seem to work with many at FreedomWorks, so I have resorted to calling them out and embarrassing them, just as I do at my local meetings (with good success I might add). Here is my response:
A new study indicates that Americans gained up to 15 IQ points after the addition of iodine to salt became mandatory.
In an effort to prevent goiter related to iodine deficiency, authorities ruled that iodine be added to U.S. salt products in 1924.
The iodine, in addition to eliminating goiter, appears to have had an unexpected result: smarter Americans.

There's this story* about Steve Jobs, when he came back to Apple. The company was on the verge of failure - too many products, not enough customers, no focus. No one expected the company to survive. Apple was two months from bankruptcy when he returned in ’97.
Jobs scaled everything back - cut divisions, cut product lines, reorganized everything, got a big investor (Microsoft) to help shore up finances. Then, he waited.
