The smart ones were probably already developing contingency plans for stuff like this. You don't even have to see this through a political lens - like MJ said, this is about control. If Amazon can shut down your business, you've got a serious issue.

And even smaller businesses can rent servers for much cheaper than AWS - SSD Nodes | VPS Cloud Hosting For Hundreds Less

I think that this overt show of force by Big Tech will come back to bite them, though their power won't be seriously challenged for years at least.

I'd agree with that. The same story has played out time and time again.... and will continue to do so.

Rather than flail uselessly against the utility of masks, which certainly do work but are foolishly fetishized by the fearful and fearmonger alike, one should mock the shamdemic by observing the total absence of advocacy for super-effective measures such as sunlight and humidified air, the traditional enemies of winter colds. But tans are politically undesirable, as the associated increase in testosterone can result in mocking sissies scared of sniffles like based Bolsonaro.

If you wish to defy the cuck muzzle, wear a bandit mask instead, and deny the FBI a small fraction of its Clearview AI facial recognition transparency, which it recently turned against those terrifying Trumpian terrorists who snapped selfies between velvet ropes in dumbocracy's most sacred and polluted womb, while Trump gave a sleepy speech a mile away. We know what you're thinking, criminal, by the shape of your face!

Cyberthal was right again.

Get a bandit mask with Captcha images on it to screw with their AI.

In honor of the upcoming inauguration with 20,000+ troops, 12 ft tall walls, and questioning members of the National Guard on their loyalty to The Party, let's compare to the inauguration of 4 years ago:

This reminded me of Wal-Mart's self-checkout. I was checking out the other day and noticed they were advertising Reeses and something else on the screen while I scanned my items. Cashiers haven't been replaced by robots, they've been replaced by 24/7 passive income sales robots!

Today, 671 people from a big international corporation in Belgium have lost their jobs.

1611180163037.png


The comments of the workers were the following:

"- I have worked 24 years in this company, and I don't even get a thank you note
- I am 55, how am I ever going to find a job now?
- I have 3 children a wife, or will I feed them?
- I have given 10 years of my life to this company, and it just ends like that?
- I have spent all of my career here and worked hard, and this is what I get.
- I hope politicians will do something about it."

Remember.

Companies tell you you are a part of the family until they have books to balance.
MJ called the slowlane, the "slowlane". But he made a mistake. It is not a slowlane.

It is a mountain road you drive during the night with unadapted tires as the storm of the century prevents you from seeing 10 meters ahead while a pack of werewolves whose favorite blood type is yours is hunting you down.

There's an awesome YT channel called invisible people, a former homeless person interviews homeless people on the street, noticed a very common theme. Elderly people that worked their whole life, saved money and lived decently and all of a sudden a job loss or something tragic happens and there ya go, enjoy sleeping on the sidewalk. Most people are a few paycheques away from living in a cardboard box

LOL, but the Federal Reserve says inflation is under control !!!

If my real estate holdings have appreciated 350% in 4 years, I'm doing a lot better than I realize.

LMFAO.

I think I'm going to forget about my Sedona property and just put it up for sale for $10,000,000.

Why not? Larry Fitzgerald bought his home in 2016 for 3 million. He just sold it for 18 million, third largest transaction in state history.


Sold in ONE DAY.

In 2014, the property was on the market as a development opportunity and offered for $3.3 million.

Except I think he had a lot of stuff done to it -- "development opportunity" ... so if he turned a turd into a palace, I can see some big returns. The house I posted above looks stuck in 1999.

Ok, this is not a political comment, I promise.

I was just reading an article about all these executive orders that Biden signed today.

And I got to the part where he defined equity as consistent and systematic fair, just and impartial treatment of all individuals. And then he directed all federal agencies to review equity within its department and improve the delivery of government benefits.

And then I busted a gut laughing at my mental image of what this would look like inside the halls of the IRS. How confused these poor beauracrats must be to have to follow this directive.

1611189727222.png

A tax system that is consistent and systematic and fair and just and impartial. Sounds like a flat tax and put them all out of jobs.

And then I had this other thought. These are the kinds of jokes @Kak cracks up to all the time.

Ladies and Gentlemen, today I embraced my inner Kak. And it was hilarious.

Dr. Paul is the best.

He used to ride his bike around... he delivered babies for many years in Texas. Many of my friends and people I know were delivered by him!

Great guy, extremely smart, honest...

Love Ron Paul. A true American Patriot. The mockery of him is disgusting.

When he had a stroke a few months ago on his show, I was beside myself watching it happen. I’m glad he’s doing well now.

Posted this in the crypto thread:


This new administration is going to claim terrorist toward anything in the way of their agenda. That includes us capitalists and limited government lovers.

I’ve fallen ill to the doom porn in the media, through my own filter. What they propose as good is horrifying to me. I’ve put too much focus on it. I need to refocus on what I can control. Anyone who is experiencing the same should join me. @Kak recently spoke on this, I believe.

However you still need to be aware. Just keep focus on what matters.

The SEC guy seems to be pro-BTC. So it might have some sway in that area.

Janet Yellen is already saying she wants regulations on BTC and crypto because of "illegal financing activities."
