I find it funny when conservatives point out day in day out the ways in which liberals are hypocrites who don’t live by the same rules they force conservatives to adopt.

Guess what? Liberals are the aristocrats. Conservatives are the peasants. Some have privileges others don’t.
The ruling class gets to do things commoners do not. It isn’t that complicated.
And when conservatives take power, we squander it by trying to be “fair” to liberals and treating them with kid gloves, seeking validation for ourselves with their approval. Pathetic.
Conservatives care too much about having status among liberals. Too bad that the status will always be that of a token.

Damn. DOGE is tanking again. Every single time.
The trading volume gets lower by at least a few quarter each time, too.
I just hope that people’s interest in DOGE doesn’t end with it.

The problem with cryptocurrency is that most people getting in on the action don’t really understand the concept of blockchains. They just think of it as imaginary dollars, to make a quick buck to turn into more dollars. Wrong way to think about it.
Decentralized Finance or DeFi is going to be pivotal moving forward as the world gets smaller and some governments (China) try to rig currency value and collapse markets through subsidies and price manipulation, as it attributes actual value onto real world proof of work.
But to make sure no one cheats and everyone gets what they’re due (smart contracts), we need blockchains—a shared ledger with no single point of failure or vulnerability. No invisible hand—no Federal Reserve to make the money printer go brrr and invalidate all your savings.

This is so awesome. High-speed internet no matter where you are in the world.
If you're not too familiar with Starlink, it's a network of many, many satellites that provide widespread coverage to anywhere on the planet, stationed in low Earth orbit. Very different from the stationary satellites that power extremely slow satellite internet.
Fiber's not gonna be obsolete anytime soon because it's still much easier and cheaper to lay down in urban areas. But this'll serve anyone living in rural areas and make telecommuting to work entirely possible even if you don't live in a city.

The future is decentralized.

America needs to decouple its tech sector from China and establish its own supply chains with the T12 or China will basically take over it and dominate the world. Not an exaggeration.
Now that Trump’s out of office everyone can freely admit that his efforts to decouple the US economy and tech from China was a good idea.
I don’t care if they pretend it was only their idea and not Peter Thiel’s and Mike Pompeo’s. It just needs to be done.

I don’t think it’s a good idea to repeat anything Claudia Conway says about her mother in her attempts to MeToo her. There’s no evidence KellyAnne did what Claudia said she did and they’ve been nothing but abusive to one another for months. That entire family is dysfunctional.
This only escalated once KellyAnne lost control over her teenage daughter who would go on abusive rants about her mom, egged on by a New York Times reporter. The narrative was twisted to turn KellyAnne into the abuser when she’s clearly a mom struggling with a rebellious kid.
Yeah maybe she’s not a good parent. But I know a lot of parents who struggle with kids just like Claudia. It’s hard to manage any sort of control when there are external forces (namely a New York Times reporter) manipulating the situation. This is that times a thousand.
