“Nothing is as great and accurate of a "wealth predictor" as INHERITED WEALTH.
Over 80% of all current, U.S. financial fortunes were inherited and NOT created by the effort, ingenuity or personality type of the clueless Silver Spoon Millenials bankrupting our country for their entertainment.
Take that, Horatio Alger...”

“A recent NOVA had a business that traded stock and made millions every year. The profit came from looking at the price of stock on exchanges in Chicago and New York. When there was a difference in price, a quick buy/sell from one to the other happened making money/profit. Abusing exchange networking isn't amazing to me, it's cheating.”
“Hatred for slavery emancipated a whole country rife with the poison of ethnocentricity. Hatred for abuse of women and children spared millions from suffering worldwide. Hatred for injustice spurred rallies for justice within nations of corrupt demagoguery. Hatred may, in fact, be MORE responsible for loving actions and true PROGRESS than LOVE itself along the course of our brief evolution as a tragically flawed species.
Just eat healthy and make sure to stay alive long enough old Grinling to see the world that your cohorts on the LEFT have in store for you. For all things are not as you have been told...”

“I am not Grinling. You MRA are easily confused,. Hatred for slavery is different than hating slaves. Hatred for injustice is different than hating victims.Hatred for abuse is different than hating the abused.MRAs hate girls and women. Feminists do not hate boys and men.A need to "enjoy" hatred makes for very ugly people.”
“In the saddle again after a refreshing respite, I trust.
Or, more to the "point" of the ink-loaded weapon that you Shake, Speare-like; slicing hot, put/rid, pis/s-pucked wind; deftly separating it from the delicate fragrance of refreshing truth our noses' are unwilling to discern: I proclaim a word of welcome, o winged warrior.
We sure needed you back in here to class-up the joint---a space wherein clear, comely insight is shredded on sight by ever-ravenous lions which are considered to be the best part of the Sordid Spectacle--I mean, "News & Discussions"--by the Patrician overlords of the Forum.
The Truth shall indeed make us free. In achieving this goal the Universe may first intend to display those with hard hearts crawling on their bellies and eating grass like King Nebuchadnezzar, revealing the extent to which they are eager to sink (even lower than what we think.) For only thusly shall the warnings of truthsayers like you eventually gain access to arrogant ears.
Therefore, we need you to keep shakin' that speare.....

“Reality disagrees with you. Reconcile your cognitive dissonance please.”
“This was a strategic test run by the "powers that be" to guage both the boundaries and tolerance of the mass consciousness in its attitude towards pedophilia. Nothing more nothing less.
Make no mistake about it, there are NO BOUNDARIES on the left and Hollywood is rife to bring pedophilia mainstream. Get used to it. Several of the major players in Hollywood who have made blockbuster movies the American public loves and worships would love nothing more than for their sexual appetites for young children to be legal and embraced by the culture they previously had to hide from to avoid legal prosecution (Roman Polanski and Woody Allen ring a bell?).
That being said, how many other "errors" has the APA made within its "empirical" tome of categorical indemnification and false diagnosis?
Thanks to progressives with an aversion to any form of pragmatic rationality or accountability, America is circling the drain. Enjoy the ride into the clusterphuck abyss of abject degradation for the sake of perpetual monetization and senseless stimulation...”

“Actually, the anti-pedophile movement is a progressive one. Look up who campaigned to raise the age of consent - it used to be 10, and now it is 18 in many states.
Conservatives only latched on to it in the 1970s in order to oppose gay rights.”

“If one needs any further proof that all things are not as they seem in this country, look no further.
Not a fan of the financials or IRS power grab with regards to Obamacare but what is to be said for a country whose politicians (ie public servants) cannot pass universal health care or a budget and yet stand united in attacking another country entrenched in a civil war?
It just keeps getting better. We are mice on a wheel, with no idea who has caged us or why...”

“In this world where money is everything, persistence and conviction is usually bled out of an individual like grains in a leaking hour glass. By the time you realize what was happening, decades have gone by and nothing was accomplished. To Mr. Diesel's immeasurable credit, he kept fighting to stay on top of the eluding sands and as a result, is a testament in perseverance for all of us with passion projects. Money is everything but perseverance is king. Never give up...”

“...And the "Biggest Loser" of the night is American progress and our nation's youth who are being fed a steady diet of self degradation and masochistic psychosis for the express purpose of overflowing the coffers of a media industrial complex.
How exactly, can the degradation of women perpetrated by the hip-hop community be blamed on the heinous atrocity of slavery and the "white devil?" How exactly, can the glorification of drug abuse and ignorance by the hip-hop community be blamed on the "white devil?" The answer is: it can't. We all bleed the same color and are responsible for what we choose to celebrate and fight against. Grow up hip-hop nation. Period. Stop defiling yourself. Stop poisoning minds with self hatred. You were born to be kings and queens. We all were.
What is there to be proud of as a member of the black community which celebrates abject ignorance and base depravity instead of intelligence and self empowerment? This columnist just insulted the progress of strong, black leaders throughout our country without even realizing it. If "black culture" has been reduced to "twerking" and "auto-tune vocal runs" after a generation of overcoming oppression, serving in World Wars and inventing life saving devices then the black community has lost more than a few VMA awards. It has lost the Dream of one of the greatest men of vision in our history, whose revolutionary life and work we all celebrate this week...”

“Very well said. People, mostly Americans, won these awards. What difference does it make if they were black, white or green for that matter. Some of the behavior was assinine, and the fact that we as Americans celebrate that crap, lowers us as human beings. The fact that a group of white performers won more awards than performers of color is meaningless. The fact that a group performers took a genre of music and took it to another level simply means that a select group of performers worked harder than others, and may possess more talent. Grow up and get past separating our American culture by color. That's ignorant and demeaning.”
“Last time I checked most people look up "definitions" and do not create them on their own when attempting to "define" a term. Same thing could be said to hold true for individuals of both genders. I am merely reporting what I have directly experienced and indirectly observed. Were I to begin to "define" women beyond what I see and experience, I would be delusional and disrespectful. Women choose to "define" themselves everyday and I honor their "definition" by holding them to it, rather than allowing them to "skirt the issue" whenever the whimsy strikes and the 3rd wave feminist winds blow...”

“Paid way too much for Tumblr. but otherwise on the right track. Yahoo News is their saving grace among the "disposable income demographic." Now it all comes down to whether she chooses the right LOGO!
That being said, Ms. Mayer gets it and is making the right moves for Yahoo to flourish. Too bad Barnes & Noble didn't hire her! Their horrible decision to stand by the billion and a half dollar black hole of a Nook in their cranny of a business model is proof they are circling the drain. All hail Bezos, Musk and Mayer!”
“I think some women are using the concept of love to justify wanting material possessions, a lapdog and security. It takes a long time to love someone and more importantly: C-O-N-V-I-C-T-I-O-N, C-O-M-P-R-O-M-I-S-E and S-A-C-R-I-F-I-C-E. The other stuff, like money, biceps, jewelry, etc. is only waning foreplay to a real and unwavering love: otherwise known as the stuff of legend and lore, only to be found in fairy tales...”

“The women I know make their own security, have their own biceps, and buy their own material possesions and jewelry etc. They expect love to come with like and respect as well as compromise.
Sex is great with a man that is okay being an equal and doesn't see women as the way you define them.”
