I’m open to funding ideas but simply saying “States will pay 50%” is not a solution. Additionally, part of her plan is to increase FAFSA, which requires men (only men) to enroll in Selective Services before they get a penny of financial aid for education, a sly way of forcing the poor into military. This probably isn’t a huge deal currently given…
Thanks for the thorough and thoughtful response. Modern Monetary Theory could work — I really do have no idea if it will, and maybe nobody does until we try it. I’m not clear on how that works out between the fed and states though — the fed can “print” money (add figures to the balance sheets), so I suppose it could dispense money to each state and…
I’d like to get more detail on this. How does this handle repayment of bonds? Does this imply repaying in gold, or re-asserting the value of the dollar to gold (or vice-versa)?

While this is a great play-by-play of what we already know, this doesn’t tell anyone who was paying attention during the launch anything new (aside from the exact date your own employees knew about the launch).
At what point does this become false price advertising?

Will the BTC GDAX ticker still be a reference to the current chain or might it switch to the Segwit2X chain at some point?
Assuming Coinbase/GDAX will be running both current Bitcoin and Segwit2x nodes, will the…
So... wait. You previously said “”GDAX will continue referring to the current bitcoin blockchain as Bitcoin (BTC) & the forked blockchain as Bitcoin2x (B2X).”
But now you are saying you might call the Segwit2x fork BTC… if that happens what will you call the market ticker for the current BTC blockchain? You can’t call it B2X :)
The importance of cold showers has been floating around the zeitgeist for a while now. I had a thought bubble up as a result of my daughter running out of the house without a coat, totally uncaring that the temperature is much lower than people enjoy:
