What Did Not Happen At Mt. Gox

By Emin Gün Sirer -

The world's biggest Bitcoin exchange recently declared bankruptcy, with close to $400M in Bitcoins missing. There has been much talk about what may have happened at Mt.Gox, with speculations running wild. I want to quickly go over what did not happen at Mt. Gox, and how to avoid that which did happen in the future.

...It's Not Transaction Malleability
...It's Not Lost Keys
...It's Not "Hackers"
...It's Not the Web Server or Database
...It's maybe the US Government?

Academic study demonstrates that Elites have policy control

An academic study by Martin Gilens of Princeton tests the hypothesis that government bends to the will of the elite rather than the electorate. The study's conclusion is no surprise but it is great that someone has found defensible evidence.

Raimondo: The Establishment’s War on Rand Paul

They’re out to get him

by Justin Raimondo
April 18, 2014

The war is on – no, not that war, this war: I’m talking about the GOP establishment’s war on Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, whose presidential campaign has taken wing and soared. And it isn’t just the Karl Roves and Peter Kings of this world who are up in arms over the prospect of an anti-interventionist libertarian in the White House: they’re getting plenty of tactical support from "liberals" like David Corn.

Why do they hate him?

The Rovians hate him because he challenges the whole Fox News-neocon right-wing paradigm that has kept the GOP a dwindling minority party ever since the Bush era ended with a whimper. The progressives hate him because he is the most likely candidate – at the moment – to be facing Hillary Clinton in 2016, and they know they’ll have a hard time selling a candidate who still refuses to second guess her 2003 vote for the Iraq war. So the two groups have a common enemy – which, in politics, is enough to cement a working alliance between two supposedly antithetical forces.

The Less Americans Know About Ukraine’s Location, The More They Want U.S. To Intervene

The Less Americans Know About Ukraine’s Location, The More They Want U.S. To Intervene

Since Russian troops first entered the Crimean peninsula in early March, a series of media polling outlets have asked Americans how they want the U.S. to respond to the ongoing situation. Although two-thirds of Americans have reported following the situation at least “somewhat closely,” most Americans actually know very little about events on the ground — or even where the ground is.

OK: Installing your own solar panels? That's gonna cost you.

Oklahoma residents who produce their own energy through solar panels or small wind turbines on their property will now be charged an additional fee, the result of a new bill passed by the state legislature and expected to be signed into law by Gov. Mary Fallin (R).

On Monday, S.B. 1456 passed the state House 83-5 after no debate. The measure creates a new class of customers: those who install distributed power generation systems like solar panels or small wind turbines on their property and sell the excess energy back to the grid. While those with systems already installed won’t be affected, the new class of customers will now be charged a monthly fee — a shift that happened quickly and caught many in the state off guard.

Scalia to Student: If Taxes Get Too High ‘Perhaps You Should Revolt’

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, after delivering prepared remarks before a standing-room-only crowd at the University of Tennessee College of Law on Tuesday, was asked by a student about the constitutionality of the income tax.

Justice Scalia, according to the Knoxville News Sentinel, replied that the government has the right to take his money. “But if reaches certain point, perhaps you should revolt,” he reportedly told the young man.
