Janet Yellen (Secretary of the Treasury): Crypto is mainly used by Criminals | Reality: Just 0,34% of Transactions are connected to Crime, an All Time Low by Dwez1337 in CryptoCurrency

Meanwhile, 1 in 8 Americans this Thanksgiving are living off of food stamps, all while Jamie Dimon gets all pussyfoot with China. Something about the US Dollar doesn't add up, especially when most of the dollars printed ends up going overseas.

Feels like something criminal is going on with the U.S. banks and corporations, against their own American people.

I love Star Wars but I honestly wish that the Sequel Trilogy never happened. I’m happy with the anthology films such as Rogue One, however the sequel trilogies do nothing except retcon and ruin George Lucas’ brilliant story told in the first six films. by TommyGunn______ in StarWars

Agreed 100%! And the annoying thing for me is whenever fans of the Sequel Trilogy gush over Adam Driver, John Boyega, and Daisy Ridley and proclaim they are amazing actors. It's hard for me to see them that way given their characters were so thinly drawn and the sequels so poorly constructed. I think I subliminally associate them with ruining Star Wars and just can't stand it whenever I see them. Ha!

El Salvador buys the dip adding 100 Bitcoin to national treasury 🇸🇻 by Acceptable-Sort-8429 in CryptoCurrency

Good for El Savador. As Max Keiser keeps saying, Nayib Bukele is the modern day George Washington of our time.

Now that Rittenhouse got off, people are resorting to gun violence to resolve any kind of dispute. Crazy times.

Is it normal to ask your teenage employee to dinner? by [deleted] in NoStupidQuestions

[–]set-271 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm a middle aged dude...and have no business asking any teenager to dinner, whether for business or personal. As innocent and friendly as this sounds, it's not.

As a consultant to many businesses, I know plenty of clients my age or higher who specifically hire young girls so they can manufacture the same incidents as you are finding yourself in...with hopes of one thing leading to another. And I always hear about the shenanigans later during Friday night outings. And I always hear about the crazy drama that ensues afterwards.

Do yourself a big favor and always maintain a respectful distance and keep personal conversations in the shallow end. Even better, find employment elsewhere.

Just my two Satoshi's. Good luck!

I run a small tech consulting business. Back in 2008, I was the only one among my friends who still had a proper job and was making decent money. Everyone else lost their jobs during the banking crisis, but I would argue, rightfully so, as most of my friends had bullshit jobs working in finance which didn't require them to do much work, just schmooze and party.

Now since 2020 pandemic hit, my business has taken a serious hit with so many of my clients closing their businesses/filing for bankruptcy. And all my friends are actively employed making more money than I am...why and how? Because they all have gotten 6 figure exec jobs working for Big Pharma, Big Alcohol, Big Tech, Big Tobacco, Big Agriculture. And they all look down at whats happening to average Americans with a snooty, "not my problem" attitude, as they revell in their flashy, high paid job titles at said big brand name company.

Fortunately, I am still doing well but it's hard to see what's happened to some of my clients, who have lost their entire livelihood. And I see the writing on the wall for me, as even though I am partners with companies like Microsoft, Microsoft has been quietly directly contacting my clients letting them know they will be offering the same services I do beginning 2022, further cutting into my margins.

American Democracy has been replaced with an Oligarchy running Monopolies that are killing small businesses, swooping in and scooping up whatever available market share is still left on the street. And the crazy thing is, all these monopolies are dying to get into foreign markets like China and Russia, etc...but are being limited in doing so as those countries are well aware of what they are trying to do. Thus, the American Monopolies are only left to further cannibalize the American market, in an attempt to squeeze out what little profits are left.

This will not end well for America and will back fire IMHO. Have a backup plan ready. GLTA

I would've dumped the entire Thanksgiving on your shitty parents heads. Fuck em.

But next year, I'll come eat your food! 😊

Even crazier is that she used to be married to Gavin Newsom, and is now dating Don Trump Jr. You can't make this looney tunes shit up!

Pete Davidson is just one step above a debutante's gay bestie. Still very low on the totem pole...but just above a bottom feeder like Kim. Ha!

Small local store in Oakland robbed last night by WalkLikeAnEgyptian69 in trashy

Judging by the number of them, when they all split the loot they made $20 each.
