    “Having a traceable public ledger of every bitcoin transaction ever conducted allows law enforcement to ‘follow the money’ in a way that would never be possible with cash.”

    A while back, I pointed out the flaw in letting just anyone mine the blockchain; specifically what happens when a .gov agency with a lot of money and a dedicated server farm started datamining it. The suggestion was not well received, because as I recall, “that’s too computer intensive.”

    Love the dog. 🙂

    Fred, being an “extremist” is not the problem. Everyone who carries their principles out in daily life is an extremist of some sort or other. The problem is the lust to control the lives and property of others. That is an evil shared by all politicians and far, far too many others, including “celebrities.”

    Fake news. No, Rhode Island Didn’t ‘Accidentally’ Decriminalize Prostitution

    The linked 2014 Reason article by Maggie McNeill documents that the RI legislature changed the laws in response to a lawsuit filed by COYOTE.

    In July 1976, the first sex-worker rights organization, COYOTE, filed the lawsuit COYOTE v. Roberts in the U.S. District Court for the District of Rhode Island. The provisions of Rhode Island law which COYOTE challenged were those which criminalized the sale or purchase of sex by consenting adults. In May 1980, the Rhode Island legislature settled the case by amending state law so as to render the issues raised in the lawsuit moot.

    There was nothing remotely “accidental” about this process. One might speculate about why the legislature chose to settle things rather than allow the case to run its course, but there is no question that it was a calculated and intentional act rather than a mass “whoopsie” by a legislative body.

    The article goes on to thoroughly fisk the deeply flawed study by Scott Cunningham. For example, RI changed the law in 1980, but Cunningham claims a decrease in STIs only for the period 2004-2009. It’s simply not plausible that it took 24 years for the law to change the behaviors of prostitutes and clients, and Cunningham offers no explanation (except his convenience) for this obvious cherry picking of data to support his conclusions.

    If you’d proposed Oprah as President 2 years ago, I would have laughed.

    Doesn’t sound so improbable now.

    If you had proposed Trump at anytime, I would have laughed…

    Shel – Sounds good, doesn’t he? If Trump could stay on that serious track, and stop acting – and talking – like an a$$hole, I’d feel better about him. But he blows it every chance he gets, whether intentionally or not. And it’s not knowing what he really is all about that leaves me cold. It’s bad enough he’s a President running a government, but an unknown quantity in charge of a First World country makes me feel like Chicken Little waiting for the sky to fall.
