I’m just going through my morning routine of going thru my subscription lists, checking the news within the industries and niches I work in. I get to a new video by my man Max Maher, awesome Crypto Youtuber, about insider trading, which I am always willing to talk about and listen to, cuz in my eyes its one of the big things that drives corruption in more ways than one inside our government.
Reporter: Should members of the congress and their spouses be banned from trading individual stocks while serving in congress?
Nancy Pelosi: No….. no to this…because this is a free market and people… were free market economy, we should be able to participate in that….
she and her husband have raked in as much as $30 million from bets on the Big Tech firms Pelosi is responsible for regulating.
Of course Nancy Pelosi doesn’t think public officials should be banned from trading, look how much moneys she’s made, she’s not about to stop that.
After watching this video, I cant help but think of the bigger picture, not only does this show corruption within our government and financial sector, but it serves as a good example of what our government has become and where we are in general as a nation and people.
Think about it, I mean to me, this should be an issue that everyone should be upset about and calling for change, and this isn’t the only one, there’s plenty of real shit we need to change about our government. Instead, most of the nation is arguing about whether or not Joe Rogan should be allowed to have conversations with people on Spotify, like are we being serious guys?
Its all very laughable and has made me adopt the attitude of the late great George Carlin, I really just don’t care anymore. I’ve checked out, I cared too much when no one else did, so now I’m like fuck it, y’all enjoy, you reap what you sow. Sure, Ill stay tuned in, share my opinions on the matters still, but honestly, when it comes to which way things land, I can go for either, cuz either I will be having a good time and things will be good, or things will be bad and ill get to say “i told you so you dumb fucks”.
Side note, this has led me to a new political strategy I think we should try, that being, whoever wins an election, they get to do whatever they want, no gridlock caused by the other side, no checks and balances, just let the dems do every single thing they want, or the republicans… and if they fuck shit up, well then at least we will finally know who to blame, none of this bs, “oh its the other side that’s preventing us from doing that” that they try to give us, or none of that “the economy is doing good because of the previous (opposite party) leader” none of that crap. And if we succeed the other side has to admit they were wrong and shut the fuck up for once so we can enjoy some nice and quite peace for once.
It just seems like people are oblivious to the corruption of the government, or they just don’t care, which considering my new stance, I cant blame them lol, but it seems like they never cared to begin with, that’s were we differ. Plus deep down, we all know I still care, I think I’m just trying to convince myself otherwise. I’m just tired and worn down from all the mindless red vs blue the people fall for.
I have always been so passionate about all of this, government, history, conspiracy… but now, people and things are so politically polarized, we see it creeping its way into every aspect of life, its become very taxing on the enjoyment of all this. Instead of open discussions with unique, individual free thinkers, it seems like your surrounded by robot armies simply repeating the key talking points they saw the night before on CNN or Fox, there’s a reason the term “echo chambers” was coined.
I have for many years, pondered on the hypothetical situation of how our fore fathers would react if they could see what they’re newly founded and fought for government eventually would evolve(or devolve) into. I cant imagine they would be very happy, more than likely, they would be vastly disappointed in seeing our federal government become, in more ways than one, the very thing they fought against. George Washington would no doubt be the one saying “i told you so you dumb fucks” in this scenario, for if we remember one of his famous quotes, my favorite by him, it reads:
“However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.”-George Washington, FAREWELL ADDRESS | SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 1796
I know I’m all over the place, I could go on for days with this rant that spawned from a video about insider trading lol, but I cant help it, I see these things and to me its all part of a bigger picture. I don’t know if my rant conveyed what I was trying to say, or the scope of my message, yes I’m talking about the insider trading, the absurdity of the Joe Rogan crap, and whatever else I mentioned in reference, but really its about the absurdity of everything as of late, its like everyone has lost their dam minds when it comes to this crap, when it comes to just common sense, placing accountability in all the wrong places, locked in tribal mentalities which devoid them of all consistency in their morals, ethics, and values as well as their judgement of these things in others.
We need to get back to center ground, get away from these extreme tribal mentalities brought on by party lines, realize we are all one people that are more united than leadership would have us believe, we all need to chill, and once we do that, we need to massively reform government, we need to divert power back to the states, outlaw lobbying and market trading, and set term limits, FOR STARTERS. These things alone will go a long way, and they know that, and they cant have that.
But that’s a fat chance lol, its only going to get worse, at this point I’m predicting a fall of Rome type scenario for us lol, but we shall see, stay safe and enjoy the time you got cuz no one knows how things will shake out. Hell we could be at nuclear war with Russia tomorrow lol.
I’ve actually been slacking on a prompt for Political Nonsense, it was, “do you think we can come back together, red and blue?” because I wasn’t sure how to answer, I really don’t know, short of an outside force attacking us, or some Jesus like figure to unite both sides, I’m just not sure.
