Setting The Record Straight On Canada-U.S. Trade

Sorry to hear that Norman Mogil. Being from Buffalo originally, and having been to Israel many times, I've never had this issue. I don't understand why the guard would comment on this as a concern being that Israel is a friendly ally to both the US and Canada. However, I too have rarely crossed the border since 9/11. The border crossing used to be as quick and simple as passing through a toll booth. Now it can be a grueling affair.

When Someone Asks, 'Should I Own Bitcoin?'

Excellent read. I especially enjoyed some of the expert opinions that were provided at the end of the article.

I had almost invested in #bitcoin when it was selling at only $300 but decided it against it for several of the reasons that Richard Shaw covered here. While I of course now regret not having purchased it then, this article certainly reinforces many of the overall concerns I still have with #crypyocurrencies in general. $BITCOMP.
