Idiot’s Corner

There is something in the mob mentality that grabs the fool by the necktie and leads him into a sure loss of his money. Tusser’s old saw, “A fool and his money are soon parted” is still so true.

Bitcoin – The song has ended…

Interesting that the crypto-currency mania ‘took off’ at about the same time that a few people identified a structural shortage in the available physical Gold supply in London.

Also interesting is the fact that about 40% of crypto-currency is owned by 1,000 people.
– Large holders of anything have a great opportunity (especially in an unregulated market) to orchestrate price movements. This always end badly…for the retail traders.

To quote Irving Berlin:
“The song has ended, but the melody lingers on.”

This is akin to amassing a mountain of iron pyrite and thinking you struck the mother lode.

Oh! How terrible this is.

The horrible effects of

oppression suffered by

Colin Kaepernick.

It is no wonder GQ decided to honor him as CITIZEN DUDE of the Year to make up for all his adversity.

Imagine having to grow up with all the amenities such as good schooling nice clothes and housing with your own room. Clean air not filled with bullets from some hoodie driveby. Yup, dis boy was oppressed.

And understand where he’s coming from now, this is the oppression that this person of minor talents, ex-NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is forced to endure. Could you live in a hovel such as this with hot and cold running maids, not enough palm trees and only able to drive ONE car at a time!

Why that looks like some cheap gate bought at Home Depot. How low can one get.
A rather large carbon footprint for such a caring Social Justice Warrior

It’s hard to chastise someone’s behavior…unless you have “walked a mile” in one pair of their 400+ pairs of shoes!

Makes me want to run right over and kick the snot out of him while he’s oppressed.

Do you know what it means to come home at night to a woman who’ll give you a little love, a little affection, a little tenderness? It means you’re in the wrong house, that’s what it means.
