After seeing my post on the sister blog that discussed the economic success of the so-called cognitive elite (quick summary, surprising only to some op-ed columnists: if you want to be super-rich, it helps to either inherit the money or come from a very well-off or very well-educated family), Todd Schneider sent me this graph: […]
Even as Bitcoin crime and deception continue, the government has decided that yup, Bitcoin investors have to pay taxes just like everyone else. The anarchists have deemed taxation to be “unacceptable”. I’m sure the IRS will take that as an answer, right guys? Pass the popcorn.

Washington Republicans say they are now competitive in more than a dozen states this year in their quest to take control of the Senate, as they and outside supporters continue to highlight problems with ObamaCare and the Democratic incumbents who backed the law.
