So apparently Venezuela has created its own state-sanctioned "Crypto" currency by order of president Nicolas Maduro. CNN reports:
"Trump signed an executive order banning US citizens from buying Venezuela's newly created cryptocurrency, the petro, the world's first sovereign digital currency. Trump considers Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro a dictator. Venezuela is in the midst of an unprecedented economic and humanitarian crisis in Latin America. Maduro is seeking re-election in May.The measure comes after the Trump administration banned American investors from buying newly issued Venezuelan bonds from either the government or the state-run oil company, PDVSA. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is also meeting Monday with Latin American leaders at the G20 meetings in Buenos Aires, where Venezuela will be a topic of discussion. Maduro drummed up the petro as a way for his administration to tap foreign investment amid the initial wave of US financial sanctions. The petro went on sale in private auctions in February."
In other news, some dipstick state-rep from Alabama says teachers shouldn't be armed because they're mostly women, and women aren't comfortable carrying guns. The "Original" Ancap Barber Boys take a few stabs at Harry Shiver (Metaphorically speaking of course) and dissect the situation. The AL.com
