Pittsburgh Man Opens Ice Cream Shop/Bank and Refuses to Shut Down

http://www.post-gazette.com

Despite threats of big fines by state banking regulators, the owner of a Shadyside (Pittsburgh, Pa) ice cream shop who opened his own version of a community bank last summer isn't abandoning his mission.

"We are taking on the challenge of transforming the retail banking industry," his website states.
"PA dept of banks threatening us ... we keep growing," he tweeted in late December.

Instead of deposits he is offering "never-ending gift cards." (More hilarious examples of how this ice cream shop/bank owner is getting around regulations in the article).

US regulator: Bitcoin exchanges must comply with money-laundering laws

http://arstechnica.com

The federal agency charged with enforcing the nation's laws against money laundering has issued new guidelines suggesting that several parties in the Bitcoin economy qualify as Money Services Businesses under US law. MSBs must register with the federal government, collect information about their customers, and take steps to combat money laundering by their customers. The new guidelines do not mention Bitcoin by name, but there's little doubt which "de-centralized virtual currency" the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) had in mind when it drafted the new guidelines.

Tens of billions of dollars in unpaid taxes fly under radar

http://www.edmontonjournal.com

Tax evasion, both at home and abroad, is stealing potentially tens of billions of dollars in revenue from federal coffers and ultimately sapping money out of the pockets of law-abiding Canadian taxpayers."People that don't pay their fair share of the taxes means the rest of us have to pay more," says Liberal Sen. Percy Downe, who has been leading the fight in Parliament on tax evasion. "It's a tremendous revenue loss to the country." He wants the government to boost the CRA's funding for fighting tax evasion.

Hacked 911 call sends SWAT team to security reporter's house

http://arstechnica.com

Brian Krebs has always been a trailblazer among security reporters. His exposés completely shut down a California hosting service that coddled spammers and child pornographers and severely disrupted an organized crime syndicate known as RBN. More recently, his investigative journalism has followed the money to the people who sell malware exploit kits, illicitly procured credit reports, and DoS services in underground forums. Now, Krebs has achieved a decidedly more grim distinction.

How the US public was defrauded by the hidden cost of the Iraq war

http://normantranscript.com

"When the US invaded Iraq in March 2003, the Bush administration estimated that it would cost $50-60bn to overthrow Saddam Hussein and establish a functioning government. This estimate was catastrophically wrong: the war in Iraq has cost $823.2bn between 2003 and 2011. Some estimates suggesting that it may eventually cost as much as $3.7tn when factoring in the long-term costs of caring for the wounded and the families of those killed."

Leaked Document Internment Camps in U.S aren't a conspiracy theory.

http://www.youtube.com

Internment camps for political dissidents in the U.S. aren't a conspiracy theory. The Department of Defense document entitled "INTERNMENT AND RESETTLEMENT OPERATIONS" or FM 3-39.40 proves this beyond a shadow of a doubt.

Nurse Lets Patient Die in Real Life Milgram Experiment

http://dailyanarchist.com

87-year-old Lorraine Bayless collapsed at Glenwood Gardens senior living facility in Bakersfield, California. A nurse named Colleen called 911 and was instructed by the dispatcher, Tracey Halvorson, to perform CPR to save the woman’s life, but Colleen replied that it was against their policy and she couldn’t do it, so she watched Lorraine die.

Audio of the 911 call has been released which is chilling to the bone, and mainstream coverage of the story is almost as terrifying.

State set to takeover Detroit city government

http://money.cnn.com

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder announced Friday that the state will take over the operations of Detroit's city government due to its long-standing financial problems. The takeover is short of a formal bankruptcy, but it will include appointing an emergency manager who would have many of the same powers as a bankruptcy judge. It could mean throwing out contracts with public employee unions and vendors that the city can't afford, and could lead to further cutbacks in already depleted city services.

LA State Health Inspectors Destroy 1600 lbs of Donated Deer Meat

http://dailycaller.com

Louisiana state health inspectors destroyed 1,600 lbs of deer meat donated by hunters to a local homeless shelter. The agency received a complaint that deer meat was being served at a mission. State regulations bar food establishments from serving hunted deer meat. Late January, the department discovered the deer meat — which had been appropriately processed at an area slaughterhouse — and destroyed it in a dumpster by dousing it in bleach. The Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission had been serving deer meat donated by area hunters for decades.
