The taxpayers were the real losers of the Super Bowl, as they are every year. This year was particularly egregious, though. What's in the News with stories on government indoctrination center strip search, civilians killed by the US, cannabis news, a new arms race, death for a pot cookie, and death for defending a home. And, an Ancap Apps segment on a new way to be charitable using cryptocurrency with GiveCrypto. This episode is brought to you by ZenCash, now known as Horizen, a cryptocurrency that infuses privacy, anonymity, and security, done right. Also, brought to you by SmartCash, an easy to use, fast, and secure cryptocurrency that supports everyday use for everyday transactions. WHAT’S RUSTLING MY JIMMIES Arthur Blank, owner of the Atlanta Falcons, with his net worth of $4.6 billion which he earned as co-founder of The Home Depot, got a super sweet deal for his new Mercedez-Benz Stadium, site of the 53rd Superbowl this past weekend. WHAT'S IN THE NEWS In government indoctrination centers news, a middle school in Binghampton, NY, allegedly strip-searched four young girls suspected of drug possession. In collateral damage news, a disastrous pair of airstrikes, one by the US and one by the Afghan Air Force, have killed at least 29 civilians in Helmand Province. Almost all of the slain from both strikes were members of the same extended family. In cannabis news, a growing number of big city prosecutors are saying no to marijuana convictions. In arms race news, the US has begun making a new, low-yield nuclear warhead for its Trident missiles that arms control advocates warn could lower the threshold for a nuclear conflict. In death for cannabis news, a man died in police custody after being arrested for sharing a pot cookie with his girlfriend on Valen tine's Day in 2017. In more drug war news, four cops were shot and a middle-aged couple was left dead in their home over a no-knock warrant for a non-violent crime. ANCAP APPS GiveCrypto is a nonprofit that distributes cryptocurrency to people living in poverty. They distribute your cryptocurrency to impact communities and help drive the real-world utility of crypto. Right now, 100% of donated funds go to recipients, so the bang for your crypto buck is tremendous right now. And GiveCrypto is crazy easy to use. You go to their site at GiveCrypto.org, click the green Donate Crypto button, give your crypto, and they do the rest. They distribute the money directly to those in need. Your donation is completely tax deductible, and they accept Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Litecoin, Ripple, and ZCash. If you have crypto burning a hole in your pocket, I highly encourage you to give some to GiveCrypto at GiveCrypto.org. I gave $100 in Ethereum to this important charity myself, and I challenge all of my listeners to give as well. Every dollar counts.
