  • Here are 3 questions I’ve been wrestling with for years (and more intensely since I became a dad). At what point does a child become a full-blown self-owner? What duties do parents (or other caregivers) have toward children before that point? Any? Am I committing “aggression” against my infant son when I pin his failing legs down so that I can get his pyjamas on?

  • The CEO of the biggest microblogging site, Twitter and “Square” a bitcoin (BTC) assisting remittance provider, Jack Dorsey has stated in his letter, “We love you Bitcoin.” The Bitcoin support remittance provider, Square’s Cash apps have gained high revenue during earning calls in Q2 2019. Dorsey also stated that the Cash app in development and reaching for the users very fast. The app is making the revenue of $135 million – without Bitcoin. On July 1st, 2019, was reported in that Square’s shareholder’s letter has disclosed that the Cash App is making $135 million in revenue through transaction, subscription, and services. On the other hand, the bitcoin revenue is not included in this and Bitcoin alone has made around $125 million. Bitcoin revenue is alone 92% of the whole company’s revenue share. Dorsey stated, “We love you, Bitcoin […] we saw 3.5 million customers use Cash Card in June, typically using it to purchase multiple times per week. Our seller and Cash App ecosystems have incredible roadmaps ahead to deliver on our purpose of economic empowerment.” On the other hand, Kevin Rooke, invested has noticed that if Square’s made a $125 million for Q2 2019, which simply means that almost “7% of all Bitcoin mined in the past 3 months was acquired via a single app that didn’t exist two years ago,” further stating: “let that sink in.” Square was declared first on November 2017 and it also introduced a BTC trading option to the 3 million select of it’s Square’s Cash App users. Only the declaration of this has made its stocks to climb up to $1 billion in just 5 days. The stocks of Square increased again this year in February due to the company has extended the range across the U.S. states for trading BTC for its users. Previous year in November, Square stated that they had made around $43 million in Bitcoin revenue for Q3 2018 and $37 million from the previous Q2. It was reported that in this year in May, in Q1 20 19 the company has disclosed that they had gained a new high-value revenue from Bitcoin sales through their Cash App and said they made around $65.5 million. The figure of Bitcoin trading revenues is getting higher and higher with every next quarter. This is enough to make Dorsey love Bitcoin for sure. News Source: TheCoinRepublic

  • I have been paying attention to the craziness going on over on YouTube and I think it would be a good idea for all of us to post links to alternate social media sites. Sites like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube are starting to try to shut down a lot of people so I think it is a good idea to start finding backups at the very least. I will list the few I am aware of I will add I have not yet used any of these… https://www.full30.com/ this is a firearms based site and it has come up a few times in conversation on other sites as the back up location for most of the major firearms content producers should YouTube and Facebook start shutting them out. https://www.minds.com/ this has been recommended by multiple YouTubers as a back up site should things get to bad. My understanding is it is still in beta however. If anyone is wondering what YouTubers they are Black Pigeon Speaks and Computing Forever but my understanding is a LOT of YouTubers have already moved there. https://becandid.com/ This one was mentioned by Black Pigeon Speaks and I think it is for mobile only but I am simply putting everything I am aware of on this list. If you are aware of any other sites please add to this list. Also goes without saying liberty.me

  • The Libertarian Party is celebrating Gary Johnson’s status in the current polls. Last time I saw it was about 9%, pretty good but any excitement, I submit is premature. The system has a way of chewing up third parties & spitting them out. In 1965, William F. Buckley was polling as high as the low 20s in the race for Mayor of New York. He came in around 16%. In 1968, George Wallace was polling so high that for a while he was ahead of Hubert Humphrey. Wallace faded to a poor third but did capture a number of southern states, to no one’s surprise. Richard Nixon won. For whatever it’s worth, I will not vote for anyone who is not pro-life and Johnson isn’t.
