Dec 18 16:34:29 (thestringpuller) LOL the jig is up

This is why. The market is bleeding red, awash in the blood of S.MPOE, there's worry, confusion and all those good things that make one feel alive. What does the CEO have to say ?

The. Jig. Is. Up.

Suppose AAPL suddenly went over a cliff, trading -10% for the day and Timothy D. Cook shrugged and said "the jig is up" to reporters at the press conference. Kinda the end of him and kinda no end of commentary in sight on the topic, wouldn't you say.

Suppose the dollar went on one of its sudden collapses and Bernanke issued a "omg the jig is up" statement. Can you even picture this one ? Can you imagine the resulting buzzing crater in the Intertubes where zerohedge used to be ?

Nobody else would "get away with it", would they. Anyone else'd be fired, pesterd, probably sued. Ecofinancial terrorism comes to mind - and why not, farting is terrorism these days.

I like Bitcoin because I like freedom. Simple as that.

  3. “I like Bitcoin because I like freedom.” - This is the main concept of bitcoin - freedom. And this is also the reason why businesses like the gambling industry is totally embrace bitcoin—its freedom from government control.
