Advocates say that Net Neutrality means guaranteeing free speech on the Internet. Without it, big telecoms could control what you see and how you see it. But what is the truth about Net Neutrality?

A family of four will embark on a three week bitcoin-only road trip over the Thanksgiving holiday. Expenses such as food, gasoline and lodging will all be paid for with the crypo-currency as they journey from Texas to California, Nevada, Colorado, and Missouri.
The goal of the Uncoinventional West Coast Tour is to “Inspire and empower the Bitcoin community to spend bitcoin on food, gasoline and lodging” says Catherine Bleish, Bitcoin author and creator of TheBitMom.com.
This will be the second bitcoin-only road trip for the Blush Family this year. Last June, Catherine, her husband John Bush, and their two children traveled over 4,400 miles from Texas to Washington DC, New York, New Hampshire and Ohio spending bitcoin only, with the exception of several toll roads they encountered along the way.
Despite several obstacles, the family managed to successfully spend over $6,000 in bitcoin using services such as Gyft (gift card service), CheapAir (hotel and flight booking service), and Airbitz (bitcoin business directory and mobile wallet) to find restaurants and hotels along the way.
Their first journey was a huge success, receiving national or local media attention at nearly every stop. The feedback was so great that Gyft, CheapAir, and Airbitz jumped on board to sponsor the West Coast Tour.
“We are ecstatic to support the Uncoinventional Living Tour,” said Paul Puey, CEO of Airbitz. “Cat and John are helping drive Bitcoin adoption as a true currency in everyday life… something strongly inline with the beliefs of the Airbitz team.”
This November, the family will find themselves speaking at the following events: Alt Expo in Austin, Libertopia Conference in San Diego, Liberty on the Rocks in Denver, and Bitcoin Meetups in San Diego, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas.
The family plans to interview Bitcoin companies and activists along the way for John’s bitcoin podcast, SovereignBTC, which received nearly 47,000 listens during their East Coast Tour.
The bitcoin travel space is rapidly changing, presenting new challenges and opportunities for the family.
“A lot has changed in the past six months,” says Catherine Bleish: “for this trip we had to get creative in order to buy gasoline because the company we used last time is no longer active. There is definitely room for new startups in the space.”
The Blush family reports they are excited to hit the road and learn how Bitcoin travel has changed since June. Follow their journey at http://www.uncoinventional.com.

Historically, politicians have always fought for the power to create money out of thin air, so they can increase their spending without having to directly increase taxes. The staggering growth of political power throughout the twentieth century — the century of war — was largely made possible by replacing money limited by gold with paper currencies, which can be printed at will by government-controlled banks.
Cryptocurrencies are the first self-limiting monetary systems in the history of mankind, and could be our greatest chance to check the growth of political power since the Magna Carta. Join Stefan Molyneux, the host of Freedomain Radio – the most popular philosophy show in the world – as he reveals the hidden political and military power of government currencies, and shows how cryptocurrencies could be greatest revolution in human history, and the foundation of a truly free and prosperous planet.

October 8th 2014, Committee on Banking, Trade and Commerce
“Study on the use of digital currency”, 11th session
Background on the “Study on the use of digital currency”:
In Canada, the public debate surrounding Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies is currently being formalized as the official “Study on the use of digital currency”, a consultative exercise conducted at the initiative of the Senate of Canada’s Banking, Trade and Commerce committee.
Although the Senate of Canada exerts less authority than the House of Commons, its standing committees have proven to be an influential source of expertise and opinion. It also enjoys considerable international attention: according to Stuart Hoegner, general counsel at the Bitcoin Alliance, “no other parliamentary body in the world has publicly canvassed the breadth of materials and opinion that this committee has”.

With alarming impunity the province’s ‘independent examiners’ bully injured Canadian workers, auto accident patient – claimants and disabled veterans out of their diagnosis, treatment and compensation.
Here in “Beautiful British Columbia”, CANADA, the Insurance Corporation Of British Columbia (ICBC), “Worksafe BC”, the medical and legal systems and all of their alleged ‘systems of checks and balances’ are run by the province – a most blatant, parasitic and destructive conflict of interest…
Subsequently, it is extremely unlikely most patient – claimants with significant injuries and insurance interests will get an affirmative neurological and/or orthopaedic diagnosis anywhere in BC, but this influence (whether it be due to the specialist’s fear of repercussion or collusion) isn’t restricted to the province.
In an effort prevent Joker from getting his diagnosis, treatment and compensation for injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident (mva) in ’98, ICBC sent him to see their Vancouver orthopaedic HIRED GUN/MEDICAL PROSTITUTE Dr Joseph Schweigel, who has obviously sold his Oath and soul for a few hundred grand/yr in insurance blood money.
You can look him up on ” ratemds.com ” and see that his track record speaks for itself:
At the time of the accident The Joker (AlAmatol @ rate md’s.com – his comment on Schweigel’s profile is @ 5/14/07) was running up and down mountains on the North Shore, earned $10K/mo (paying $5K/mo in TAXES!) doing on set special effects on the Vancouver TV series “The Crow; Stairway to Heaven” and had an extremely lucrative, environmentally, industry and public health friendly tattooing system going to market with the industry leader.
Because of the Joker and his youngsters are out millions and still requires surgery for which he continually gets the “run around” on the public system.
As a patient – and after ten and a half years – he’s lost confidence and turned to naturopathic and alternative medicine.
As a filmaker, he’s in a prime position to show how the BC medical – legal – insurance system destroys carreers, lives and entire families.
