Experimenting with Micro-Communism

I had a debate a while ago on Taleeb Starkes show, where he ambushed both me and a veritable communist by getting us to be on his show under false pretenses.  Much like Iraq soldiers would get various insects or spiders to battle each other for entertainment, it was the same thing as natural enemies will attack each other.  There wasn't much to say about the debate except for the fact the communist he had on was a purist, even going so far as to support North Korea (though choosing to live in Canada).

I can't find the video (because I believe it's hidden behind a paypal on Taleeb's site), but with the limited time we had I wanted to clearly understand the point and position the communist was making.  And what it ultimately boiled down to was that he truly believed in Marx's theory about communist and that we had yet (of course) to implement communism correctly and were not yet at that stage.  This prompted me to ask then, "Has a working model of communism ever been successfully implemented in all of human history" to which he said no.  To which I responded "well don't you think you should try to get a small working model first before rolling it out on all 7 billion people?" which promptly won the argument.

However, this got me thinking: what about experimenting with small  "micro-communism" environments?  Not necessarily because I want to implement communism, or that I'm curious to see if it would work.  But because before we upend the entire global system that has naturally evolved over time (that would be "capitalism" for those of you in academia) which would CERTAINLY cause some inefficiencies...or outright millions of deaths due to starvation (if history is any indication)...wouldn't it be prudent, wise, and HUMANE to test it out FIRST on a small group and small scale of people so it could be perfected BEFORE forcing all 7 billion people under a gun to accept it?

Alas, this article sent to me from our good Australian Agent in the Field, Adam Piggott.

Apparently, in an effort to follow marxist maxims "Lentils as Anything's" (they needed to hire Asshole Consulting before naming their company that), would allow people to pay only what they could and not what was necessary to cover the expenses to pay the wages and overhead of the working-class people who supplied the restaurant with food, supplies, labor, and...well...everything.  And as they found out, people, when given the choice, would not pay what was necessary to make the restaurant a viable economic concern and it was forced to close.

This is nothing more than another repeat "micro-communist" experiment where another restaurant, Bartertown Diner, also failed to keep it's doors open.  Unlike "Lentils as Anything's," Bartertown's communist philosophy focused on management and not pricing.  They decided not to have any management, allow employees to show up whenever and do whatever, allowed employees to determine their own wage, and even had such libertine policies as no-official hours.  Once again, this micro-experiment in communism failed and the diner is no longer around.

We can go on, but I do like this concept of experimenting with communism on a micro-level first, before rolling it over out onto for the people.  Despite economic differences between me and communists, I would assume they have the best wishes of the people at heart.  And if you're going to insist on changing the current socio-economic system from what it is to a communist one, then you'd make damn sure you could run a measly restaurant, let alone an entire economy.  It's only the moral and right thing to do.  But if you can't get restaurant to work, then why would you insist on implementing socialist policies nation wide, let alone municipal wide?  It only hurts the people you're claiming to help.

Venezuela is only the most recent nation-wide implementation of this ill-tested prototype political-economic philosophy following such successes as North Korea, the USSR, East Germany and Cuba.

Detroit, Chicago, the black community, and academia are also "municipal" sized experiments that have cost millions of innocent people their livelihoods, futures and, some people, their actual lives).

And Minneapolis just made a huge stride towards nationalizing private property under the guise of section 8 housing, already adding to a huge communist push by their privileged white girl major (if you don't know about Minneapolis, it's fallen under disrepair from their latest Mayor Betsy Hodges).

About the only socialist success story, that unfortunately COMPLETELY depends on capitalism and free markets to provide its participants with the luxury of claiming to be socialists...while the major employers of this economy ship their tax nexus overseas...would be Silicon Valley.  But that took decades worth of K-college brainwashing and (once again) only works within a capitalist economy.

Of course, what sadly is more likely the case in the majority of communists, socialists, democrats, and active politicians is that they care more about free stuff, easy jobs, government positions, and political power than they do the millions of lives their political religion destroys.  They truly don't care how many brown people in Venezuela starve or how many black people in Zimbabwe die or how many black people get shot in Chicago.  It's more important to them that they don't have to work and can live off of western government teats, not to mention feel good when virtue signaling in college as they pursue advanced liberal arts degrees.  ANYTHING to avoid real work and labor, while hypocritically claiming to be the party of the worker.  And so when a logical, obvious, humane, and SAFE option exists to experiment, perfect, and THEN roll out a feasible and practical communist society (which by the way if you can swing it, I'm all ears), it sadly falls on deaf ears because the majority of socialists/communists/democrats don't care about the people.

They just care about themselves.

So much so they have no problems ruining the lives of everybody else on the planet.

You may hate capitalism.  You may think it's cruel and evil.  But at least it's been tested.  Both on a small scale and large scale.

Enjoy the decline!

Professor Bret Weinstein Meets His Frankenstein Monster

Bret, let me tell you that you deserved and continue to deserve everything coming your way.  You created these anti-freedom monsters and it is a DIRECT result of your leftist politics. 

Don't worry, soon nobody will be hiring your students because, seriously, who is ever going to hire liberal arts graduates?

More Nails on the Coffin of the Education Bubble

Universities are SLOWLY starting to offer classes and degrees on "Big Data" or "Data Science."

But then Microsoft came along and offered this.

This speaks to an idea I had wherein there would be a certification system ran by the government that would allow you to test to get degree equivalents, much like a GED, but for specific college degrees.  I even thought about profiting off of it offering classes much like COMPTIA and other companies do.  But the problem is the private sector (surprise surprise) is already actively offering such a product/service, AT LEAST FOR FIELDS THAT MATTER AND HAVE ECONOMIC VALUE.

The real issue is how do we obsolete the need to attend college and university for worthless LIBERAL ART DEGREES and thus (not only save millions of kids every year from financial servitude), but kill off the marxist, anti-freedom academic left once and for all?

And the answer is we can't.

As I've explained before, most students pursue liberal arts and humanities degrees NOT as investments, but as consumer goods.  They are paying for "the college experience" and never had any intention of their degree being useful, employable, or rigorous.  It is just one big entitlement, birthright, and party America's dumber high school students demand to be entitled to, and even if there was an "GED/certificate equivalent" (or heck, the library) they are still going to sign away on the dotted line to pay $200,000 for a worthless degree.

In short, there is no way to leverage technology, the internet, and online classes to provide a superior and cheaper educational alternative for liberal arts and humanities degrees because the people who pursue these degrees are NOT interested in cost, value, or ROI.  They are paying for an incredibly expensive experience, much like a 4 year spa treatment or 4 year vacation.

The sooner you realize the economic nature of liberal arts degrees are CONSUMER GOODS the sooner the insanity of the academic left will make sense.

The Case for Evil

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

"The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly" is an amazing movie and is an absolute must for every person to see.  There is the Hollywood-good "Blondie" played by Clint Eastwood.  The Saturday-morning-cartoon-villain bad "Angel Eyes" played by Lee Van Cleef. And the relateable ugly "Tuco" played by Eli Wallach.  The story that unfolds as the three try to abscond with $200,000 in Civil War gold is unrivaled and I shan't ruin a single bit of the movie for you here.  But the title is as catchy as the movie is good because it prompts people to conveniently categorize all of society into these three categories.

The good.
The bad.
The ugly.

The truth is, however, this is wrong.  Society does not break down neatly between the good, the bad, and the ugly, and this can be seen in the character of Tuco (the ugly).

Tuco may be dirty, low-life, skeeze. He may indeed be ugly.  But he has a trait that outshines his ugliness, puts him on par with the good and the bad, and makes it possible for the movie to happen.

He's smart.

And in the real world society does NOT neatly break down between

The good.
The bad
The smart.

It DOES, however, most certainly break down between

The good.
The bad.
The stupid.

And it is here a moral case for evil exists.

The Stupid

Understand nearly all western nations and societies can be broken down between the good, the bad, and the stupid.  Where a small 10% of the population is good.  Another small 10% of the population is bad.  And though both of these minorities are smart, the remaining 80% of society is stupid.

This makes the battle between good and bad a lopsided one (I'd even say deterministic) in favor of the bad.  The bad can easily prey upon the stupid.  The bad can easily convince the stupid they're good.  The bad can even get the stupid to attack the good.  And with a few mere lies, the bad can more or less have the stupid at their complete disposal.

The good on the other hand have to fight with one hand tied behind their back.  The good don't lie.  The good don't cheat.  The good have moral qualms taking advantage of the stupid.  Alas the good are not only constantly on the defensive, but outnumbered at times 9 to 1.  Worse, the good can never get around to actually doing good, progressing as a society or excelling at life, as the majority of their efforts have to go fighting the bad and vainly trying to convince the stupid they're not the enemy.  And so society wallows in painfully slow and incremental progress, often times regressing because the stupid are so easily duped by the bad.

Take for example democracies.  After 3,000 years of war, philosophy, revolution, and blood, western civilization finally evolved to the point we minimized the government and wrestled it under the control of the people.  Now, the stupid, over the past 100 years have been convinced by the bad (politicians) that a larger government is a good government, and in these past 100 years have largely undone what our western civilization ancestors so tenaciously fought for the past three millennia. 

Closely related, the democrats exclusive private property ownership of blacks.  Is there a better example of an evil group of people ruining the lives of another group of people with lies and false promises?  The democrats have convinced nearly 90% of blacks that their entire fate, their entire lives are controlled and oppressed by "whitey" and "republicans," and that the ONLY way they can get out of their oppression is by (surprise, surprise) electing more democrats into power.  The true evil of "the bad" in this scenario is where blacks continue to remain in last place, suffering mightily under democrat cities and policies, but are still so brainwashed they don't realize it is the bad/the democrats who are their true oppressors.

Paralleling very closely to the plight of blacks are another prey of the bad in this country - women.  Certainly the democrat party view women as a victim class to advance and enrich themselves, but feminism and feminists are the true villains in this movie.  Wanting to avoid real work at any cost, feminism and feminists have created and entire victim-whoring industry out of whole cloth.  And they did so by telling women the most damaging of lies.

Women are men.
Gender is a social construct.
You don't need a man.
Being a mom/stay at home wife is oppression.
You are oppressed.
The glass ceiling.
The wage gap.

Surprise, surprise again it is only feminism and feminists that can solve and remedy these injustices.  And the way we do this apparently is by creating entire departments of women's studies, channeling women into "social justice" or "liberal arts" fields (where they coincidentally pay $100,000 for worthless degrees), financing make work government programs to employ these otherwise unemployable people, replacing men with government checks, and convincing women that working, paying taxes, and a career is more important than having a husband or children.

But at what price?

There are now three full generations of women (baby boomers, Gen X and now millennials) who put a paycheck, a career, their politics, feminism, and their education ahead of their biological and heart-felt desires to have and raise a family.  They'll never admit it, but they're miserable and have wasted their entire lives.  But at least the bad feminists made off $100,000 in tuition, Oprah is a billionaire, Jimmy Choo made a lot of money on shoes, corporate America got some cheap labor, the government got a lot of tax revenue, and the democrats/labour/socialist party got a lot of votes.  What's only worse than the ruination of millions of women's lives is how they still claim to be independent minded when they were so obviously hoodwinked and screwed over by feminism.

How about the mentally ill?  Well, not really the mentally ill, but the legions of lazy young people who all want to claim they too are victims and in need of government assistance, legs up in society, handicaps, and hand outs and therefore falsely claim to have a mental illness?

Social anxiety disorder.

These things certainly may exist, but one thing is for certain - there certainly are millions of millennials, Gen Xer's, even baby boomer faking it all so they can collect government handouts, disability, legs up in society, and (last but not least) an excuse for their laziness and utter patheticness. 

Sadly, the bad is all too eager to help accommodate them in their own self delusion.

Not only do the usual socialist suspects rear their ugly heads to champion free mental health care, government programs, and blank government checks (all in exchange for a vote, of course), but the psychology "profession" and pharmaceutical industry are all too eager to capitalize on these faked mental illnesses.

Is your 9 year old boy acting like...well...a 9 year old boy?

Are you feeling down and depressed like...well...EVERYBODY does now and then?

Are you anxious because you're a pampered spoiled brat from the suburbs?

Are you just an evil, insufferable person conveniently looking to hide behind a made up mental disorder so you can continue to manipulate and abuse people?

And let's not forget the legions of psychology majors who are otherwise unemployable and rush to the scene to provide unneeded psychological services to children, long as they get to suckle on that government teat.

Never mind millions of people's lives will be ruined thinking/faking they have a mental illness.  The government, the psychology industry, and the pharmaceutical industry made billions off of these sheep.

And if the pharmaceutical and psychology industries didn't consume enough in billions of GDP, let's talk about a $1 trillion plus, per year industry where the bad just completely rape the stupid, while also COMPLETELY brainwashing them against the good.


Does a better example of evil exist, where people profit and parasite off of a naive and innocent people, than modern day liberal arts and humanities colleges?  The bad are so good at enslaving the stupid in this case I almost feel compelled to applaud them.  They not only convince the stupid that the good are their enemy, but they also:

1.  Convince the stupid they're entitled to free everything
2.  Convince the stupid that nothing is ever their fault.
3.  Convince the stupid they're smart.
4.  Convince the stupid to enslave themselves to the state

and (where I tip my hat to the bad)

5.  Convince the stupid to borrow $150,000, financially crippling themselves forever, to pay for these worthless degrees.

I know the stupid are the stupid, but for them to fall for such idiotic poppycock is unbelievable.

It's Good to Be Bad

The problem with this complete and total level of stupidity is that it lessens, if not outright ruins the lives of the good.  We not only have to fight the bad, but must also tolerate, often fight the stupid.  I argue this is the true societal cost of the stupid in that the good are not allow to come anywhere near to achieving their full potential.  If it weren't for stupid people we wouldn't be paying 40% in taxes, traffic would be non-existent, we would have landed on the moon in 1200 AD, and cancer would be cured.  Instead we need to bail out banks, single moms, liberal arts students, and dedicate nearly half our economy to shield the stupid from their own mistakes.

But if putting up with this total and complete price of stupidity wasn't insulting enough, what, I ask you, do we get in return for being good?  In the movies the good wins in the end.  In the movies the good vanquishes the bad and makes off with the girl  But what happens in the real world?

The truth is you're punished.

Any attempt at doing good in today's world is met with fierce resistance, not only from the bad, but the stupid as well.  And the bad are so good at brainwashing the stupid, they even have scripted verbiage they've trained these sheep to not only use, but actually believe in.

You're "racist!"
You're "sexist!"
You have "privilege!"
You're "oppressing me!"
There's "institutionalized ism/ist."
The "patriarchy."
The "glass ceiling."
Literally Hitler.

And merely being called names is the best punishment the good can hope for.

If you dare to help out the stupid, tell them the truth, or try to get them to wake up, you run the risk of losing your job, getting doxed, or having your entire career and life ruined, simply because you want to "be good."  Donglegate, Brendan Eich, and the Orwellian nightmare that corporate America is becoming is not only proof the bad are winning, but shows just how pervasive and successful the bad have become.

The simple question is, is it worth it?

Morality and religious reasons aside, take a cold, secular look at humanity and ask yourself why not be bad?  Not that bad or evil itself has merit, but does the stupid in society deserve the good?  And not only does the stupid deserve the good, but with their idiocy, ungratefulness, and outright hatred for the good, does not the stupid deserve the bad in spades?

It is here you almost have to reluctantly admit that "the bad" was right all along.  Of course, I argue the bad is bad because they're lazy and have no moral compass, accidentally choosing the right path. But from a practical, functional view it not only pays to be bad, but it is precisely what the stupid deserve.  In this case, you almost have to applaud and respect the democrat party, feminists, academia, the psychology industry, and all the other "bad" institutions for the James-Bond-Villain-level global domination plan they've pulled off.  And since the stupid is not only all for being the victim to these plans, but hates any good person that tries to help them, even going so for as to ruin these good Samaritans' lives, I cannot help but conclude:

It's good to be bad.

If a wife is going to cheat on her husband, you do yourself no favors refusing to sleep with her.  You simply pass up free sex because she's going to cheat anyway.  Might as well be the guy to bang her, because it's not going to change the outcome.

If a minority is going to vote for a democrat because of the free gibmedats, he's going to vote for the democrat no matter what.  You simply pass up a cushy public office position running as a republican.  His poverty is guaranteed regardless, so you might as well lie to him, run as a democrat, and get your government check as well.

If a 20 year old girl is going major in social justice, you're only going to piss her off telling her her dreams are stupid and she should major in engineering.  Ergo, push her along and encourage her to ruin her life.  You'll not only get on her good side (be you a parent or a boyfriend), but again, she was condemned to major in social justice anyway.

And all my contesting and fighting against the approval of bad loans during the run up to the housing bubble did absolutely nothing to stop it.  I would quite literally be a million dollars richer had I just played ball, and NOTHING, NOT ONE THING would be different.

And before you start claiming that any of the above would be immoral and unethical, realize being moral or ethical would have no effect on ANY of the outcomes above.  The only difference is whether you profited off of it in the end, delivering the lies the stupid so richly deserve, and were condemned to believe.

It is here I make the argument that for those of us who are "the good," we need to really sit and contemplate the consequences for being so.  I know some of you have children and therefore have a vested interest in doing what you can to make the future brighter for them.  I know some of you have religious reasons that would prevent you from taking such a Machiavellian approach to humanity.  But as I've alluded to in my podcasts before, I am very lucky to make a living as a purveyor of truth.  It took two decades and a life of hell to scratch out this morsel of business, but I am incredibly thankful for it and we do a lot of GENUINE good.  But the day it goes away, the day the stupid and/or the bad make it illegal, ban channels, ban sites, etc. etc., is the day they leave me no choice.  And if Oprah, the democrat party, bankster scum, and academia are any indication, that day is going to be a very profitable one for me indeed because I will aggressively sell the poison and lies the sheep so desperately crave.  Just be aware, that day might be coming for you too.  And it'd be best if you knew there was a moral case for evil.

Socialist Men Less Manly


Just shocking!

I feel bad for millennial girls.

Good thing gender is just a social construct.

Why are Women Suckers for Fads and Bubbles?

You can almost see the MSM admit that there might be an education bubble.  But the problem is that runs contrary to their narrative that education is always good and always mandatory and "rah rah yea for women."

Oh foolish women.  Always buying that shinny new (and expensive) object in front of you.

Please, ladies, I'm being serious here now.  If you want to close the wage gape you need to start majoring in the right subjects. That is going to do more to ACTUALLY close the wage gap than whining about it or blaming "the patriarchy."  And that, is frankly, more help and honesty than you've ever received from feminism, your professors, diversity experts, or politicians.

Don't Let Corporate Profits Bother You

I have largely checked out of the realm of politics and finance.  Both entities/worlds are not controlled, nor influenced by me, but instead are determined by the unlimited sea of sheep, lemmings, and the politicians and corporate marketing shepherds that guide them into the slaughter house. This has turned politics, economics, finance, and in general, history, into a movie I watch, indifferent about the outcome, with no passion nor care about the characters.  This means most humans mean nothing to be, and so when they:

Buy a McMansion at the height of the housing bubble.
Investing in a dotcom in 1999.
Borrow $150,000 to major in a worthless subject
Volunteer at a refugee camp and get raped

and consequently have their lives ruined, I laugh at them because in my world they are merely non-sentient characters on the stage of life, all here for my entertainment.

So an article about IBM's stagnant revenues and profits prompting them to end their telecommuting policy, piqued my interest.  Was IBM having trouble?  Were their profits down?  I had no idea, I was too busy at the moment riding my motorcycle in the Black Hills to tune in.  But apparently it is true, IBM is having a bit of a tough time.  This then prompted me to research corporate profits overall and it seems it's the same movie being played at the "AMC CNCB Jim Cramer 25 Cineplex."

Corporate profits have indeed not only stagnated for IBM, but corporations overall.  Bar the oil price collapse of 1986 (which drove corporate profit growth to an all time low) the trailing 10 year average of corporate profits is at an all-time, post-1950's low:

I know the democrat/socialist movie directors want to tell you in this movie the economy has recovered and this is the new normal, but in the real world this does not bode well for the entire country and the millions of sheep who have been told to invest in the stock market via their 401k's, IRA's and 403b's.  I was hoping that with sclerotic corporate profit growth, corporate prices would be equally slow to grow, meaning they'd be cheap for the millions of Gen X'ers and Millennials who would like to also contribute to their retirement plans.  But alas, even after the 50% stock price crash in the S&P 500 during The Great Recession, stock prices have not only recovered to their pre-cash levels, but grew an extra 11% over what corporate profits warranted, making them EXTRA EXTRA pricey for millennial and Gen X sheep to buy.

This is on top of a longer and historically larger bubble where the stock market is essentially trading at twice the value it should be because of all the:

1.  Retirement dollars
2.  Low interest rate loan corporate buy back dollars
3.  Quantitative easing dollars

flooding the US stock market.

It is here I lose interest in the movie because I've seen this movie thrice before.  There was the "Housing Bubble" which came out in 2007 and starred Dick Fuld, Bernie Madoff, and Ben Bernanke.  There was "The Dotcom Bubble" which starred CNBC, Krispy Kreme Donuts, and a sea of idiot American sheeple.  And though most never bothered to view it, I did watch that old classic "The Tulip Bulb Bubble" starring the ENTIRE POPULATION OF HOLLAND.

All of them have the same plot.
All of them have the same outcome.
They are as boring, overdone, and scripted as the Fast and the Furious Series.

And just like the "Fast and the Furious" series promises to be the last one, they'll drag Vin Diesel's and Duane Johnson's ass out again and again and gain...

"for just one more time"
"because this is the last time"
"until the next time"
"for family"
"never again"
"until the next time"
"till I was never coming back"
"until we have to do it again"
"for the last time."

It won't be until the American sheeple actually learn from history, will they avoid these once-per-decade financial crises they inflict upon themselves.  Until that time, enjoy the show and enjoy the decline.

Robots Eliminating Need for HR

LinkedIn to replace HR.

White Hating University Lays Off 400 People

Awwww, too bad for Mizzou.  Remember how the inmates took over the prison?

"Iron Horse Heist"

Saw this painting in Deadwood and knew it was one of the few and rare luxuries I "must have."

Then I saw the price was $3,850, JUST FOR A PRINT!

It is now officially "one of the few and rare luxuries I must have...when I'm a billionaire."

Yes, Berkeley "Haas" a Business School

The University of California Berkeley is a curious entity.  It is without a doubt the most leftist, anti-free speech, anti-freedom college in the United States.  It generates, at best, worthless liberal arts graduates, and more typically, damaging ones who will be net parasites on society.  Yet, at the same time, it has highly-ranked, highly-legitimate STEM programs, producing engineers, scientists, and other productive members of society.  But while this odd square peg is rounded with a universal indoctrination of leftist politics (all their scientists/STEM graduates are just as easily brainwashed as the liberal arts majors), I was shocked to find out Berkeley has a business school.

Yes, an actual business school replete with MBA program and all.

It's called the "Haas Business School" and is ranked surprisingly highly in both undergraduate and MBA programs.

This completely flummoxed me because there was just no way to reconcile Berkeley's anti-progress, anti-capitalism, anti-production environment with that of a highly ranked business school.  Alas there it was, in all of it's business schooly glory, punching in the weight class with Wharton and the U of Chicago.

So out of morbid curiosity I just had to look up what the class requirements are to earn a degree from the "prestigious" Haas School of Business, and what I found was not surprising at all.

First, like all colleges, the Haas School of Business does not make it easy, clear cut, or obvious what you need to graduate.  Despite my best efforts to take the minimum number of courses to graduate from college, I too took one unnecessary class.  I believe schools make it this complicated on purpose so that they can eek out those couple extra thousand dollars from their students.

Second, what also stood out was Haas' insistence you take 7 "breadth" classes, one each from the following categories:

Arts and Literature
Biological Science
Historical Studies
International Studies
Philosophy and Values
Physical Science
Social and Behavioral Sciences

You can look up the individual lists from the link above, but all are chock full of worthless, liberal arts pre-requisites that, once again, only exist for two reasons.  1) to serve as an employment vehicle for Berkeley graduate students in the worthless liberal arts.  2) to brainwash you into leftist politics that has nothing to do (even everything antithetical) to business.  All under the hypocritical lie that you need to be "well rounded."

Third, was the "core" group of business classes every business major, regardless of specialty, has to take.  This includes 10 "basic bitch" classes such as "micro-economics" (because your high school class I guess wasn't good enough), "business communications" (which is surprisingly like all communications), "marketing" ("gotta spend money to make money!"), and two complete throw-away classes "Leadership" (because I'm going to let a 22 year old leftist moron lead my company) and "The Social, Political, and Ethical Environment of Business" (more leftist brainwashing from a professor who never worked in the real world of business).

You would think this would be enough in academic-indulgences-bribery money to satiate and keep employed Bekerley's ranks of worthless professors,theoreticians, and academians, but it's not, because the University of Berkeley also has some class requirements of all their graduates, regardless of their college and degree.  Like all graduation requirements, they don't go into detail, hoping to get you to sign up for 3, 4, 7 classes you don't need, but they fall into three categories.

"American History"
"American Institutions"
"American Culture"

These requirements are likely nothing more than additional and unneeded, rank leftist propaganda, but even if not, they certainly have nothing to do with business.

Fifth, you need 12 "upper division, non business units" to graduate from the "prestigious" Haas Business School.  What they are, again, they don't clearly say, but they EXPLICITLY tell you it CAN'T be business.  Making me (and the students no doubt) wonder how much better a business major they could have been if they were allowed to...oh, I don't know...STUDY WHAT THEY WANT WITH THOSE EXTRA 12 CREDITS???

And then finally, the numbers.

They just don't add up.

Though I could be wrong, the best I could suss it out, your average Haas Business School student will take, in total, 65 BUSINESS credits.  Only 38 of which will be in their particular major (finance, marketing, HR, etc.).  This is out of a TOTAL REQUIRED CREDITS of 120 to graduate.

So let's do some math that I think even Haas Business School students can understand.

When you go to the Haas School of Business, only 54% of the classes you take will have anything to do with business.  And when you really look at it, only 32%, LESS THAN ONE THIRD of the classes you take will have anything to do with you major.

Translated another way, 2/3rds of your tuition money and time is spent on crap you never wanted to study and (in my humble opinion) is nothing more than a money grab from Big Education that makes the mafia's insurance plan look fair.

Of course, this is not just the Haas School of Business, but nearly every business school, and nearly every college in America.  The majority of classes college students take have nothing to do with their major, and everything to do with enriching the life-long-academian class.  The first and foremost purpose of higher education is NOT to educate "the future" but to get you to endebt yourself, often times to the tune of $100,000, all so Big Education can make almost as much money on you as the mortgage industry. 

The real question is why is it taking Americans, especially the youth, so long to see this scam for what it is?  I understand that we are now forcing all of our (precious) youth into indentured financial servitude because the Bachelors Degree is the new High School Diploma.  I know millions of baby boomer and Gen X'er parents are naive about the realities of higher education, unconsciously brainwashing their children that "they MUST ALL GO TO COLLEGE."  But when do you sheep wake up and realize a college "degree" that only gives you a third of the education you need/want with a price tag of $100,000 and 4 years of your youth is a racket, not to mention, the primary cause of all future millennial financial problems?

I used to want to do the right thing and sound the alarm, toll the bells, and try to warn Americans about the financial risks of pursuing worthless degrees.  But instead I (or anybody else) who tries to warn people about this are greeting with hostility, accusations of "ruining dreams," or just being "ignorant" (a favorite accusation of 19 year old self-described "independent minded people").  Throw in the fact these lemmings continue to keep running off the cliff, I not only find myself wanting to enjoy the decline, but actually am sadistically starting to enjoy watching the carnage.

For example, just two months ago the clerk checking me out at the grocery store unsolicitedly lamented to me about the election of Donald Trump.  I asked him what he was going to major in, and he said, "theater."  With a straight face that would win the World Series of Poker I told him,

"Look kid, I know you think just getting that bachelors in theater is going to help, but nowadays you REALLY need to get a doctorate if you want to be successful."

Because, you know, I don't want to get in the way of anybody's dreams.

Dating is Over for Gen X

I got out of two rat races when I was in my early 30's. One was the 9-5, corporate prison of being a wage slave. The other was dating.

The catalyst that prompted my exit from corporate America (banking) was the collapse of the housing market.  I was being driven insane when my hard numbers were telling me there was trouble, but the gray-haired baby boomer who desperately needed a commission check that month to finance their leased vehicles insisted otherwise.  It wasn't until the FBI contacted us did I realize that, no, I wasn't insane, and that, yes, corporate America and its baby boomer leaders didn't know jack.  It was a corrupt system and one where nobody with any talent can excel.  And thus it was time to hunker down and get self-employed quick.

The snow flake that caused the avalanche of me exiting stage right from dating was a cute car model from Detroit who moonlighted as a waitress at one of the bars I frequented.  This particular snowflake was nothing special, her dramatic antics common amongst pretty western females, but enough that it was the straw that broke this camel's back.  The total economic cost in terms of time, resources, effort, and sanity just wasn't worth it anymore.  I went ghost and found that quality reliable girl your mother always talks about.  Never set foot in a nightclub or disco ever again.

More than a decade has passed since both retirements, and I'm glad I exited when I did.  I now answer to no one for my paycheck, weekly reminding baby boomer bosses of my freedom, and I've been so long removed from the dating scene, I cannot for the life of me understand how I stayed in it so long.  But while I was fortunate enough to get out of both rat races, the same cannot be said of my Gen X counterparts.  Most, thankfully, have started to get some semblance of justice when it comes to careers.  Enough baby boomers are retiring or dying, providing leadership vacuums that should have been long ago. Plus the internet has obsoleted millions of baby boomers, allowing true talent to bypass them, no longer dependent on their brick and mortar monopolies, and allowing a more meritocratic labor force and economy.  But the dating rat race has only gotten worse, and for the benefit of any Gen X'ers unfortunate enough to be stuck in it, lend me your ears.

The primary complaint I see amongst colleagues, friends, loved ones, and associates is that there is just not ANYBODY worth dating.  Gen X is in their 40's now and 4 decades is enough time to make life crippling mistakes, unrecoverable decisions, and deal-breaking choices the render most undateable.  Criminal records, financial problems, student loans (STILL), bankruptcies, other people's children, STD's, unemployment, obesity, mental disorders, and all the other plagues that come with getting old.

Life isn't over for this generation, but the mistakes made in their 20's are now finally coming due with a ton of interest, and momsie and popsie aren't going to bail them out this time.  Alas, much like the millennials we love to deride about being irresponsible, I haven't and will never forget the stupid decisions the majority of Gen X made.  They simply aren't making the news because nobody wants to see the aftermath of majoring in stupid shit, borrowing a ton of money for a McMansion, getting divorced like the Baby Boomers, and basically the fallout for being the conformist, basic bitch generation they were.  Still, the selection is poor for any divorcee, ne'er married Gen X'er who kept his/her powder dry, Gen X'ers who maintained their physique, or anybody of Gen X who is in the dating market.

Gen X's dating problem is further encumbered by an age paradox.  Because you can only make more mistakes as time goes on, that means an ever-decreasing percentage of your generation is dateable.  An obvious solution would be to date younger, finding people who haven't made your mistakes...yet...but there is a problem in dating younger - they're not mature enough and thus not mentally compatible.  This is especially pronounced among male Gen X'ers who did not have children, were never married, and thus far kept their nose clean.  You can certainly date younger, but doing so will only cause a headache as you date into the realm of "feminist, empowered, yet completely clueless, Millennial women."  You can date older, but now you run into other men's children, financially troubled women, lithium prescriptions, Jesus freaks, newly-empowered 40 something feminists, and government-check-addicted Hillary Clinton acolytes.  Alas, I've seen many male friends ping-pong between the two, with no solution in sight.

Sadly, the reality is one of cold, hard economics which more accurately reflects a produce market than the pretty lies TV, media, and movies paint to get you to believe your Ann Margaret or Prince Charming is right around the corner.  All markets clear, just like the produce section.  The quality tomatoes are picked over quickly, and those that are left will spoil in due time.  This isn't to say you're a rotten tomato if you haven't been snatched up in this market, I know some men and women who are truly great and wonderful people in this unenviable situation due to circumstances largely out of their control.  But it is to stand back, clear our eyes, and accurately assess what is going on so we can accurately diagnose the situation and take action that will help going forward.

Gen X'ers today need to take a somber look at dating and acknowledge what's going on.  They may also need to entertain the possibility of just being single forever or that their standards are just too high.  Millennials would also do well to pay attention because while they're hot, young, and beautiful (well...young anyway), the lies they've been fed about career, education, "partaaaaaying," and politics being more important than family, friends, and loved ones will put them in the exact same situation as Gen X and the Baby Boomers before them.  One that is certainly not enviable.

"Poor Richard's Retirement" Now for Sale!

Greetings All!

"Poor Richard's Retirement" is now available for sale in paperback with Kindle and Audible coming shortly!  IN FULL DISCLOSURE it is an ESSAY, not a book, coming in at only 140 pages.  Additionally, it covers ground most regular readers are already familiar with (that humans are the most important thing in life), and expands upon that ground forming an entirely new retirement system upon it. 

If you already know humans are the most important thing in life, and have implemented that into your life philosophy, pursuing a financial life of minimalism, you likely do NOT need to read this essay.  One of the larger goals of this book was to garner new readers, and the poor state of American's retirement planning was the venue by which I'd achieve that, but most of you guys already practice what is preached here.

Regardless, you may find the book interesting and practical, and it CERTAINLY is philosophical.  I just wanted to fully disclose about 50% of it will be material you're already familiar with.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 a Bucket of Emotional Tampons

Swear to god can you people in Hollywood just make two good movies in a row?

Why Technology, Not Environmentalists, Will Stop Global Warming

I am going to make a prediction.  And when I make predictions, people should pay attention because my track record is pretty good.  Plus the prediction is hopeful and optimistic, so this rarity should definitely be paid attention to.

Telecommuting will become standard within yours and my lifetimes.

I didn't think it would happen, but the good news is the single largest hurdle to telecommuting is going away - Baby Boomer bosses.  They're getting old, they're retiring out of the work force, some are dying, and even some are starting to get it through their incredibly thick skulls that this 20 year old technology can be implemented without the world collapsing.  The day is coming where every white collar worker will have a commute like me...which is merely walking upstairs to my home office in my boxer shorts, grabbing coffee and turning on the computer.

This is of course great news because of many reasons.

One, I believe it will result in stronger, more stable families as more adults spend more time at home and less stuck in traffic.

Two, I believe it will result in better children who spend more time with their parents as opposed to a daycare operator or parent-substitute.

Three, I believe there will be less divorce in the country since time and financial constraints are the #1 cause of divorce.

Four, transportation budgets will be drastically cut because our roads do not need as much repair and maintenance.

Five, family finances will improve as we spend less on gas, auto repairs, insurance, and the cars themselves.

Six, housing will become cheaper as people no longer have to live near hubs of economic activity (read-cities), but can move out to more rural areas drastically improving their budgets.

Seven, taxes will be lowered as people are allowed to escape leftist crapholes like California and New York and move to tax free states such as Florida or Texas.

Eight, costs of goods will go down because corporations will not longer have to shell out office expense, be it renting expensive downtown buildings or building cubicle farms.

Nine, there will no longer be a commute/rush hour and the commensurate traffic jams that come with it

and finally

Ten, with nobody commuting western countries will drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions, certainly more than any arbitrarily applied "reduction schedule" governments had signed onto. This will finally achieve the reduction in greenhouse gases environmentalists have wanted and (at least western countries) will have done their part to stop global warming.

This will be cause for celebration.  And I would contend not for the fact we will have ended global warming, but because of all the economic and standard-of-living improvements that come with being able to telecommute.  But what is going to be very telling are the lessons, realities, and facts that will be observed AFTER we reach this stage in telecommuting/green house gas reduction.

First, as is always the case, society's problems will not be solved by protestors, activists, slacktivists, sociologists, SJW's, politicians or other worthless, talentless people.  It will be solved by innovators, creators, scientists, and engineers.  I don't care how precious a religion "global warming" and "the environment" is to the zealots who put the false religion of environmentalism at the core of their being.  The truth is all green technology is created and produced by engineers.  STEM majors.  Not the professional parasites and whiners too lazy to do calculus and actually DO something about it.

Second, we cannot help but point out global warming will also be solved by entrepreneurs and visionaries who saw the potential for different technologies and innovations to make life easier and solve problems.  These entrepreneurs were of course driven by profit, which means whether you like it or not, it is also capitalism that solved global warming.  To quote Newt Gingrich (regardless of whether you like him or not) "E-mail saved more trees than any tree hugger."

Third, while the western world will move towards a commute-free world, making actual tangible change towards reducing global emissions, this doesn't change the fact that environmentalists, protestors, and activists are still going to want their iPhones, laptops, cheap clothing, and...well...every material good they've always wanted which are produced predominantly...

outside the western world.

i.e.-China, India, and the score of other Asian/second world countries where most actual physical production is done.

This means the fight to stop global warming will have to be taken overseas to get those countries to lower their emissions.

Which brings about my final and key point.

Fourth, will the global warming crusaders and environmentalist religion zealots actually go overseas to help stop global warming?  This is so easy to predict, I feel I don't have to write it, but I will for thoroughness' sake.

Everybody, including the environmentalists themselves, know damn well they're not going to.  And the reason why is evidenced by every action environmentalist, protestors, and people who supposedly care about the environment take - none.  They take no tangible, effective real action at all.  And they do so because at their core they're lazy.  If environmentalists actually cared about the environment, they would major in STEM, engineering, science, and pursue careers that would actually bring about the end of global warming.  But at their core are just like all other religious people - fakers and frauds.  They don't actually care about the environment, they just want to use environmentalism to provide their worthless, lazy selves with some kind of fabricated purpose, agency, or validation.  So once it becomes inconvenient to bitch and whine about a problem, or the problem itself is solved, they won't stop and repurpose themselves into another capacity that actually serves society.  They will simply find another cause or crusade to bitch about.  They will simply find another religion.

This will become painfully clear when telecommuting becomes widespread across the western world.  Spoiled kids from the suburbs, replete with the worthless liberal arts degrees will be unable to complain in their home countries about global warming.  But since to continue the fight against global warming would require going overseas (you know, actual effort), most will drop out of the fight because of cost (both in terms of time and money).

The real issue (and even my prediction skills aren't this good) is what new "problem" or "crisis" will the environmentalist/professional crusaderist/lazy good-for-nothings come up with next to provide their meaningless lives with fake meaning?  I'm always amazed at the left's ability to pull crises out of thin air, but even more flabbergasted when the sheeple public swallow it whole.

First it was global cooling.
Then it was the ozone layer.
Then it was the kid's starving in Africa.
Then it was the rainforests.
Then it was global warming.
Then it was "climate change."
Then it was "privilege."
And (one I still can't believe the sheep swallow whole) the 31 flavors of gender.

It's almost worth staying alive just to see what genuine craziness they pull out of their communal ass next.

Regardless, mark my words, these people will not simply "go away," hang up their environmentalist robes, and return to society as accountants, cooks, mechanics or other productive members of society.  Their entire life's purpose is to avoid real work, while hiding behind the fabricated nobility and morality of some leftist cause.  And this hypocrisy will be exposed for a brief moment when the west adapts telecommuting.

Where Last Man Standing Fails Conservatism

"Last Man Standing" is a family sitcom starring and created by Tim Allen.  Tim plays "Mike Baxter" - successful marketing executive, father of three daughters, and husband to the very milfy Nancy Travis. However, what makes the show stand out from the rest is its superb writing, BRILLIANT acting, incredibly clever humor, and above all else, the conservative principles showcased in the show.  Despite some genuinely cringe-worthy sappy moments, it is hands down my favorite TV show on today, rivaling Black Books, Father Ted, and IT Crowd in terms of humor in my opinion.

Because of its quality and unabashed conservative politics it has become a favorite of Americans who still love America.  It's teaches the value of the nuclear family, strong male role models, fathers, capitalism, and work ethic. And it also skewers leftists, socialists, and SJW's for their blatant stupidity and naivety on a regular basis.  Since at least half of Americans don't hate America (not to mention are sick of the leftist indoctrination being shoved down people's throats) it's no surprise it has such high reviews, a loyal following, and is running into its 6th season.

There is, however, a major flaw in the show in terms of the politics it, and Tim Allen, are trying to convey.  A flaw that is reflective of the larger conservative community, and one that it is unaware of and has been been unaware of for quite sometime.  And though I know "it's just a show" and to relax, because the secondary purpose of the show is to use the American family as a vehicle to make the case for conservative principles, this is something the conservative community in America needs to fix within itself.


While conservatives, republicans, libertarians, and anybody "not left" eviscerates and condemns dependency upon the state, "Last Man Standing" unintentionally advocates a similar such unjust parasitism, but upon the family.  In the Baxter household, Mike Baxter has:

1.  Bailed out a teenage single mom daughter.
2.  Allowed for free lodging for all adult daughters
3.  Allowed one daughter to set up her company in the basement (also rent free)
4.  Paid for/committed to pay for all daughter's colleges
5.  Given no consideration for the quality of these degrees (fashion)
6.  Bailed out the leftist-ex-dead-beat-dad-now-reliable-father son-in-law from his student loans
7.  Pays for all adult children's cars, cell phones, food, and insurance
8.  Lets the wife quit her otherwise respectable STEM job to become a (you guessed it) teeeeeaaaacheeeerrrr.

and oh,


It's so bad it makes you wonder if Tim Allen ever actually did time in prison.

But then there is an interesting juxtaposed character.  One whose background is the complete opposite of the spoiled suburbanite Baxter daughter royalty.  One, that though I'm sure Mr. Allen intended to be there for lovable, comic relief, makes my point by exposing the lack of meritocracy in the fictional "Last Man Standing" world.


Kyle is a moron as much as he is a good and genuine soul.  He works at the outfitting shop Mr. Baxter works at, is incredibly loyal, does the most demeaning work without question, looks up to the fellow "sirs" in the shop, and is the epitome of the most loving, loyal, but stupid, dog.  Dumb as he may be, however, he is superior to most everybody else in the show for his age group because....

he supports himself.

The entire show Kyle is living on his own and supporting himself.  He lives in a dumpy, studio apartment (that gets raided by bums), doesn't have any illegitimate children, helps support his grandmother, and not once ever asks for a handout, a bail out, a car, free lodging, free tuition, or even a free fishing pole.  If anything Kyle just wants a father in his life, painfully pining for one of the "sirs" to accept him as such, but (if you were to watch the show) it's tragically depressing how he's never tossed a bone or given a fraction of the help the Suburbanite Royalty Baxter Princesses are, or worse, taken advantage of.

Here's how this would go down in the real world, and is the VITALLY IMPORTANT LESSON many conservative families, especially fathers need to learn.

First, the Baxter daughters would be insufferable spoiled brats, much like most suburbanite princesses are today.  None of them would have real jobs, they would perpetually be forever-dependent upon their dad for a bailout, they would be EASILY brainwashed into leftist stooges in college, they'd all be "feminists," they would stand up their dates, and they would NEVER view the family as the unit of society.  They would be, much like most 30 somethings today, facing mom and dad FINALLY cutting the purse strings because they never did before, finding ways to avoid getting real jobs and getting their student loans forgiven.   But worse (and remember, this is for you conservative fathers who want to raise conservative daughters so they go off and marry similar young Mike Baxters) they would be unmarriageable.

I've explained this before, but spoiling your precious little princess only makes it hell for the younger men to date her.  Certainly in terms of entitlement mentalities, but also younger men simply cannot compete against a Mike Baxter wallet.  And while you think this is predominantly a SWPL upper middle income affair, it is universal across all income and racial categories.  Men in the ghetto, barrio, or trailer park cannot compete against a government check to win the affection, attention, and commitment from their women.  Regardless of your socio-economic status, simply handing things to people (be it from the private sector or public sector) result in inferior people, no matter where you hail from, and the rest of us get to deal with these people when they're released into society.

Two, Kyle, despite his mental handicap, would be an infinitely more successful, stable, reliable, happier, and superior person.  And the reason is simple - he suffered, he endured, he learned.  Unlike being pampered in opulent suburbanite bliss, Kyle was forged in the fires of the real world.  And because of that would come out much stronger and reliable than the worthless faberge eggs being mass produced by conservative fathers in the blissful suburbs.  But more importantly, for the sake of conservatism in America, he would know what it takes to survive in the real world, what it's like to work in the boiler room of the Titanic, he would know how the real world works and all THAT....

would result in him holding conservative principles.

The irony of Last Man Standing's political aims is the exact same irony of conservative fathers across America.  You guys are creating the leftist monsters you're so desperately trying to fight.  And you're doing it by fostering dependency and parasitism in your children.  If you really love the country, if you really love America, if you really love your children, given them a little more Kyle and a little less Mandy.

We real men and women in the real world who had to support ourselves would appreciate it.
