| Political Talk|| Bitcoin: Money of the Future or Old-Fashioned Bubble? - MStant1 on 4/9/13 at 11:01 am|
Interesting article about Bitcoins from a Austrian Libertarian perspective on Mises Daily.
I selected some of the more key arguments, but I left out a lot as well. I believe this perfectly sums up why I can't jump on the bitcoin bandwagon that so many of my libertarian brethren are jumping on.

So I had to take a train to Delaware this morning and Chris Christie plops down in a seat only a couple rows from mine. CSB I know. The train also goes to DC which I guess is where he is going.

The question isn't whether Jesus sinned, but could he have. Did Jesus have the ability to sin and could he have denied the cross?
