Holy carp. Mad Maxine did something right? Nah, bet she just wants a free pile of the stuff when it launches. #CryptoFlimFlam.

Rep. Waters, thank you kindly for looking out for us anonymous Facebook users. One thing though, how does this help the thousands upon thousands of homeless people sleeping on the streets of your district? Really appreciate it if you could help me understand your plan.

Congress: about 10 years late, as always. The risk to the financial system is great if not fatal. There, saved you all some money for a committee full of people with 0 knowledge about technology.
