I made $10 an hour as a part timer worker in Home Depot style store. $12.50 on weekends. This was 1990’s in small town. Would be $19 an hour today and $24 on weekends.

I checked and same job TODAY is $12.50 an hour.

This is what inflation has done to the working class. ImageImage
Gas was often 99 cents / gallon. Gallon milk was 99 cents to $1.29.

This was in 1997-2000 era.

Nothing felt expensive other than “nice stuff,” luxuries.

Daily living, groceries, sure you had to budget but it didn’t feel like it does now. Can’t leave the house without going WTF

The Peter Attia / Rich Roll podcast is SPECTACULAR. Successful men are burying “trauma,” which often is the genesis of achievement. Feeling like you’re a piece of shit, you keep grinding. Hence why most high performer men aren’t “happy” and have to really work at that midlife.
There’s a lot of pain stored in the central nervous system, not to mention the DNA. I thought this was goofy as hell til ayahuasca. It’s all there. Every memory. Including repressed ones you made yourself forget. And even ones where maybe you weren’t the good guy you thought.
“Trauma isn’t real.”

Then takes another drink, lashes out in anger, continues acting out self-destructive behavior spirals, maybe commits suicide directly or else lives recklessly as a cop out, hoping to die from the behavior.

Or maybe there’s something to it. 🤷‍♂️

The Project Veritas Board has back channeled talking points claiming James Okeefe was missing donor funds. What a clown show. Why not ask the donors if they care that James took too many Uber black cars? This is the latest desperate effort to shape the narrative.
The Project Veritas Board is claiming it hired outside counsel to investigate how James O’Keefe used donor funds.

Complete set-up, but it’s why the Board claims it can’t explain itself. Hiding being “investigation”!

Time to go live and take questions, PV Board.
OK good. The Project Veritas Board has released its claims. No more innuendo. Donors can decide on their own now.

I guarantee you 0 real donors have any problem with this, but transparency is good!…

The real right accepts and is comfortable with hierarchy, cuz "there is levels to this." (And no I don't claim to be at the top.)

The left pretends to be egalitarian and then uses deceit and back stabbing to acquire status.

That's why the left wins. The right believes in honor.
All things being equal, the dishonorable side will win.

In close elections, Democrats will do what Republicans won't, and even then - Republicans act surprised!

It's a failure to understand Deep Politics.

Yes, that's the least surprising development, it's in the DNA of the left. They don't have honor.

You can't have people in leadership who lack this understanding.

@elonmusk @yoyoel New Knowledge got caught buying Russian bots to follow Roy Moore on Twitter during the 2018 midterms.

That’s an odd source to rely on for an “independent” analysis of the 2022 midterms.
@elonmusk @yoyoel When Russian bots began following Roy Moore in 2017, it was treated as huge national story. Moore was mocked for blaming Democrats.

Yes, Democrats bought the bots and hoaxed the (willing) press.

Now someone who works for New Knowledge, the same firm, is on 2022 integrity?
@elonmusk @yoyoel “We orchestrated an elaborate ‘false flag’ operation that planted the idea that the Moore campaign was amplified on social media by a Russian botnet,” the report from New Knowledge says.…

Getting a calcium scan on ❤️ done. Something all men should do, if only to establish a baseline. It shows if there are any arteries clogged. Often it’s genetic. Healthy people have had sudden heart attacks for decades. Plaque builds up and you don’t know until it’s too late.
I paid cash. It’s too much hassle doing any of this stuff via a traditional MD. Was $349 and radiologist writes up a report.
Folks I didn’t ask for supplement tips. Yes I take K-2. Leave me alone. I posted useful information for people so they can research on their own and track stuff, I didn’t ask for advice.

Don’t mess around, use lots of butter.
Blocked everyone who commented about “hurr durr cast iron skillet” or lack of crust. Guess what, I do that too. There are multiple cooking methods.
