I am the only one who has this.
Income disparity may be at a historic high, but it feels as though the wealthy are less visible than ever. Consider the one of a kind stuff that you don’t even know is one of a kind and maybe extra special. I don’t want to spend a lot of money…
The Status Quo Journalism I Ignore
Pretty much when I am reading the news if I recognize the source, I already know how they are going to spin the story. I have been looking for fresh sources with open minds and deeper understanding. Not that the Status Quo reporters don’t have deeper understanding and maybe better sources, but they have been corrupted by a system that requires they bias their reporting. The past thirty of trying to stay informed my watchwords are “consider the source.”
Kings No More
There should not be Kings, or Queens, or Princes, or Princesses, or Lords or Earls or any such things. Certainly, the idea of hereditary succession is evil; it is racist at its core. It is sad that so many celebrated Charles’ coronation and so few protested it. TEK
Things that should be stopped immediately.
I will only list a few and only the easiest. Stop mining gold Stop making yachts Stop building mansions Stop making supercars (even electric supercars) None of these activities can be defended against the harm they cause. They cause both environmental and social harm and provide little to no redeeming…
I have never been marketed too so hard as I am now being targeted by Medicare supplement insurance. The volume of mail and on-line ads is just astounding. I have even had sales people ring my doorbell. WTF, leave me alone. I am not going to be getting Medicare supplement insurance. I have employer provided health insurance. With all the push it must mean some big profits for someone and that bothers me.
1492 to 1776
In the early 16th century Europe started taking a serious interest in the America’s. It took almost three centuries for the America’s to be serious about forming their own independent countries. Half a century ago we demonstrated that we put people on the Moon. My cohort complain about our slow progress colonizing the Luna and our lackadaisical efforts to explore Mars. I think we are progressing at an appropriate pace.
How a Billionaire could make a postive difference right now.
Brazil has an aircraft carrier that needs to be recycled but nobody wants to do is because doing the job right is a losing proposition. A huge waste and potential environmental damage are looming. Maybe a billionaire could take possession of the ship and do the right things even if Brazil will not pay the piper. Tons of steel and copper are about to be sent to the bottom of the ocean because nobody will pay to properly deal with the hazardous materials so they will just dump the hazardous materials in the ocean.
It is time to punish this evil cartel.
It is simple. Just buy less products that are made from Oil. This is something we should have been trying to do all along and many of us are but now we have more reasons than ever. I am not going to list them all but just know that it…
The Algorithms are Stupid
The algorithms are either stupid or ignorant or both. Even here on Medium. Medium recommends to me stories I have already read. Other sites offer me products I already purchased. I mean things I only need one of. They repeatedly offer me stories, click bait, that I have ignored a hundred times. This business model is doomed. TEK
