Congressional Investigation into Coinbases ability to service accounts.

Coinbase is a Digital Currency trading platform giving customers the ability to buy and sell Digital Currency on line and through their phones.  Due to the fluctuations in digital currency the asset is extremely volatile.  Coinbase customer service takes 48 to 72 hours to let locked out customers back in once locked out and it can be longer if there is any sort of problem.  Their systems are routinely down leading to customers not being able to get back into their account for even longer.  When this happens you have customers in a volatile asset at the mercy of Coinbase to let them back in while their account value can wildly fluctuate.  This petition hopes to solve the problems Coinbase has in servicing accounts, and not have customers locked into a volatile asset for any longer then it would take a Brokerage or a Bank of this size to service a customers account.   THIS IS A PETITION TO CALL FOR SPECIAL COUNSEL TO CONDUCT A COMPLETE AND THROUGH IMPARTIAL, BIPARTISAN INVESTIGATION INTO COINBASE ON THE FOLLOWING MATTERS: 1)  The ability for Coinbase to service accounts in a timely manner. 2)  The average length of time a Coinbase customer is locked out of their account for any reason, and the length of time it took for Coinbase customer service to get them back into their account. 3)  Coinbase boasts 50B+ in Digital Currency exchanged, and 10m+ Customers served.  Do they have the infrastructure to handle such large volumes of customers and transaction and resolve problems within a reasonable amount of time? 4)  What is a reasonable amount of time for a customer of Coinbase to be locked out of their account?  Especially one that fluctuates so wildly. 5)  Is it just company growing pains or negligence by Coinbase by not providing the infrastructure for customers to get back into their accounts in a timely fashion, and still accepting new accounts making the problem worse. 6) If it is decided to be negligence. is Coinbase responsible in any way for losses incurred by customers who where unable to get back into their account due to low staffing, long wait times, systems being down, and not being able to resolve issues in a timely fashion.  All while accepting new customers. Possible solutions:  A cap on accounts Coinbase can open until they can service accounts in a timely fashion (A metric can be used based on historical fluctuation).  A hard limit on the length of time a customer can be locked out of their account.  Backup systems for when their vital systems have outages.  Not having Coinbase and GDAX connected, so if you are locked out of one you can still trade on the other.

Demand resignation of Trump: a self-admitted sexual predator

It is disservice to women and men everywhere to continue to tolerate a self admitted sexual predator as president of the United States. In this evolutionary #metoo movement we see with sexual harrassers and predators resigning across all strata of society, it is hypocrisy in its most extreme to let the president remain in his position whilst other senators are resigning and potentially being elected in the midst of seriously disturbing allegations. Consistency in our standards of treatment of these matters and our self respect and integrity as women and men on this Earth is at question if we continue to support a misogynist as President. What message does it send to our future generations? How will all of you stand when history inevitably  turns it's lens on you? How will we truly be the country we aspire to be when we suffer this double standard and look the other way? It is an empty #metoo movement if the President himself is not investigated by an ethics committee for his sexual allegations, assaults, and misconduct that go back decades and 19 women have accused him of.  It is a travesty of justice if he is allowed to remain to govern this country when he can't even govern where his hands may land on a woman? So I urge you to please sign the petition. I am an American woman who feels outraged by this cognitive dissonance and am asking every female senator in the government regardless of your party to search your heart and do the right thing. I'm asking America to do the right thing by women, by our mothers, our daughters, our sisters, our friends, and our sons to be raised in a better society that values women and our sovereignty over our bodies.

Petition to Donald Trump

Make the Trump Administration Raise Carbon Taxes on Businesses

Image credit:     Imagine a deathly hot, dry world with no water or life. This is the eventual fate of our Earth if we don't do something about climate change. If there is even an 18/5 degree increase in temperature, climate change would become runaway, making Earth look like Venus. This is not just China exploiting us for money, this is real. Look at all of the numerous studies showing that the Earth is warming, and it is being caused by humans. Just take a look at the infamous "hockey stick" graph of global temperatures, and say that the temperature didn't start to rise in the 1800s at the same time that we began burning fossil fuels. It isn't China's fault. The blame is likely to be pinned on America if something doesn't change soon. China is trying to get ahead in the game, and if the Trump Administration doesn't take advantage, our economy could be destroyed when no one wants to buy our "primitive" fossil fuel burning technology. Hence, it could help our economy if we start now. Also, think of the habitat and animal losses. A prime example of this is the Tasmanian Tiger. It was an animal that lived in Australia until the early 1900s. It looked almost like a dog, and was the worlds largest carnivorous marsupial. However, when Europeans arrived, the tiger was extinct within 500 years. It was because of changing habitat and habitat loss. This could still happen to many animals today, like elephants and lions. How would you feel if most of the animals and plants alive today became extinct because of your actions? This is the question that many people need to consider. Therefore, the Trump administration should pay more attention to reports of warming temperatures, for the sake of our environment as well as our economy.
