By Lindsay Edwards, published on Jun 24, 2014

To what point will we dematerialize money?

By A_Pietro, published on Jun 5, 2014

The arguments in favour of the disappearance of physical money are many, and they usually stem from entities, such as lobbies and companies, which hold specific interests in other types of money. In the light of recent trends, one might think that these champions are in the process of becoming victorious. But it’s not going to happen. No matter how effective the assaults governments launch against bitcoins, they keep re-appearing.As a non-governmental currency, it is the most dematerialized form of money we have. Is it possible that it would, one day, be embodied by actual bit coins and bit... (more)

A Bunch of Animals: Political Monkey Business

By DKIdea, published on Feb 16, 2014

We must see the game for what it is. If we remain blind to the process, then it’s our own fault for where we find ourselves and where this country ends up. I didn't write what you’re about to read next, but it bares analysis because there must be some understanding of the process before we can effectively change it into something that works. We have been divided on purpose, while the animals run amok in the House and Senate:

“If you start with a cage containing five monkeys and inside the cage, hang a banana on a string from the top and then you place a set of stairs under the banana,... (more)

The Credit Score Scam

By DKIdea, published on Jun 18, 2013

Credit cards and the companies behind them have hoodwinked the public into believing they are more important than they really are....and doing so at unbelievable profits. It’s gotten to the point that everything is hooked into your credit score. Soon, buying the simplicities of food and clothing will depend on your credit score.

11 Things Observed In The Betrayal Of My Friend

By D. Sager, published on Jan 7, 2013

...the little things. The friend will never have a bad thing to say to my face. I know that I am not perfect so if my friend is always eager to give praise and never criticism, it offers a cover for subterfuge. The friend will use my resources with abandon. Having no concern over the economy of my money and supplies they will waste and spend without thought. Strategic placement of needs. It seems the friend is always short on resources every time I'm around them. There are in “need” all the time and in short order they will let me know that “need”, subtly... (more)

My Tax Dollars...Your Burden

By DKIdea, published on Nov 12, 2012

“My tax dollars pay for your salary!”

Ok...since I’m also a tax payer, it’s safe to say that my tax dollars also pay for my salary, so essentially, I‘m paying myself. I’m my own boss...but I already knew this. I get a kick out of people that brandish the fiery fist of power fueled by their tax dollars. In fact, I get a kick out of the very idea that they think they have any ownership at all over the money that is confiscated from them by our government. Yes...confiscated, because it is taken from you wether you want to give it or not.

Let me lay this out for you. You’re money... (more)

By DKIdea, published on Nov 11, 2012

There has been a chain letter circulating through the internet for years now. It presents itself as an idea from Warren Buffet, but the truth is the only part of it that came from him was a simple quote. Although the contents are not his, the ideas in the letter continue to raise questions, inspire discussion...and motivate people into thinking positive about where we are as a country, and where we want to be. Obviously, something this inspirationally viral and full of ideas simply must be discussed on this site, dedicated to the advent of idea.
