Most consumers can probably expect the same thing next year. The contract to finish the backend and setup the small business exchange just went out for bid in June with the proposals due in August and, I believe, it's still awaiting award.
There are also additional crypto-currencies out there such as Litecoin, Dogecoin, Namecoin, etc. They all have their various advocates as well as their various values.
Not necessarily. If you want to get btc then there are a number of ways to get very small amounts free. Just Google "bitcoin faucets." Many of these are like get-paid-to-click ads. It would take a long time to get rich this way but if you have time it's easy. There are a number of exchanges where you can exchange fiat currency ($$, euros, etc) for btc. If you have a WIndows 7 or later or a Linux-based computer, mining can be done with a minimal investment; just be sure to research the variety of hardware on ebay. Most serious miners are constantly upgrading their hardware and want to get rid of the old. Finally, you can buy "mining contracts" through ebay or various websites. This is more of a transfer of dollars for btc. Just be sure to do some sort of simple spreadsheet analysis to see what the best pricing is. As I type this, 1 BTC is worth $372.20. It's been a lot hire and a lot lower.
"...to show the people that the GOP will pass common sense legislation..." I hope and pray that's what they do because it's the correct way to do it!
My one hope is that we take a common sense approach to governing and explain the principles behind what we do. Anything that smacks of revenge against Obama will only mean a two year run of leadership. Clearly, we have to stand for principles but look to compromise when the greater good is apparent. No party has a monopoly on good ideas. If we show where our principles lay and how they support what we do, the American people will respond; the next election needs to be about how well the Republicans did, not about how bad the Democrats are.
The only way the black community will hear you is if you tell them. I don't know the number of blacks that consistently read Townhall and would be pleasantly surprised if it were very many. If you want your statement to be heard, say it out loud when and where the audience will hear you. A thoughtful, well-reasoned argument can be made and will be heard. Then the action is on them.

I was going to post, but you summed up my thoughts exactly. Why we continue to give this man a forum is beyond me!
"their polling efforts are designed to breed overconfidence in the Republicans and hope for that leads to the "they are a shooin, so I don't need to go vote" attitude." That's my fear as well...
Two things to consider. 1) All the polling is worthless unless folks show up and VOTE. We should be very careful of becoming complacent and having a repeat of the "sure win" from 2012 become the defeat of 2014. Encourage EVERYBODY you know to vote! 2) I'm beginning to wonder if Obama doesn't WANT republicans to win. If they do he'll be even more encouraged to go around Congress and we know that Republican have already taken impeachment off the table. What does he have to lose? Some of the statements he's made either show him to be willing for that to happen or someone who has lost touch with reality.

Cruz is DOA. While I like his conservative principles (for the most part), he comes across as too inflexible and doesn't seem to understand the word compromise. The independents will flee to the Dems again. I'm not convinced he's even viable as a VP. I like Jindal and I like Carson. I think that pair could speak volumes to the independents who are absolutely necessary for whatever the winning ticket might be.
