So no three-sentence summary to backup your contention at the very least?

This is good and all, but why now? Why when it can't get past Biden? Why not wait for President Trump? Massie is based, but this seems like the same old political theater from Republicans. They only do this when Democrats are in power.

How do you come to that conclusion? Is it a guess? Or based on something?

Please explain how you come to this conclusion. I'm interested in really understanding why you think this. I've been skeptical since 2021, but then this recent spike came as a real surprise. Help me fully understand.

I remember Bitcoin back in 2016 and 2017. I was convinced that I had missed selling at the top, but we can see I was wildly incorrect. I want the knowledge that will help me understand why this isn't the end of GME.

Let me tell you a story about a guy I know.

Growing up, his dad worked two jobs and wasn't around the house much. When he was around, he was grumpy and would yell a lot, or generally be unpleasant, or would be asleep. This was commonly blamed on him being exhausted from working two full-time jobs.

One month, this guy had a birthday. He turned eight. Before the end of that same month, he woke up, had a normal day at school, and then went home only to have his sister come down the driveway to meet him, sobbing. You see, that morning, he woke up without a father and didn't even know it. Before he woke up, his dad had gone to work his morning job but didn't make it because a woman killed him with her car.

This guy I know has different memories of his father than the rest of his family. He's told me that most of his memories are negative. He also has problems socializing, anger, and difficulty being a parent himself. As a result, he has unhappy feelings about his father and doesn't know how to deal with it. He told me that he grew up scared of other kid's dads. Today, he seems to have trouble accepting any sort of authority.

What I derive from this is that just spending twenty minutes playing with your girl, no matter how cranky or exhausted you feel will make a world of difference in her heart. Also, life is terribly short (unless you're this guy who says that his life isn't short enough), and your influence on your daughter will also be short. Even if you don't suffer an early death, kids have a way of drifting as they become teens, where her friendships will become more important to her. So influencing her now, and showing her your love now is important because tomorrow is not guaranteed.

In fact, on a recent excursion, my child was nearly hit by a car while we crossed a crosswalk because a woman wasn't watching the road. Today isn't guaranteed either.

Life comes at you fast.

Homer Simpson works his job knowing that he is there forever, but he does it because he loves Maggie so much. So though you're exhausted, you do it for her.

And, fortunately, this is probably not permanent. The only thing that is permanent is change. All things change.

One of my children is also needy. I've had to set boundaries. A boundary for you might be to play on two or three set nights a week. Make it special. Give it a label. And when those nights come around, remember to give it your all because you're building a real relationship with your daughter.

Your feelings about playing amid your exhaustion might not get easier, but the relationship you have with your girl will. A health boundary and loving attention from her father just may foster healthy growth and a strong relationship.

Layla Rose is the president of Miss USA. No word on what HIP could be.

In other words, citation needed.

I have two questions.

  1. Why did you want to move to Russia in 2019?

  2. How is it? The sense of nationalism seems cool, but I know people who have lived in both Russia and Ukraine and they say it's not that nice.

Thanks! Definitely not advice though, just what I would do.

I had forgotten to mention gaining exposure to Bitcoin without owning the asset itself, such as by owning funds like BITO or HODL (two different types of holdings and strategy), or by holding stock in companies such as COIN or MSTR.

If diversifying, I would buy double what I would normally buy and sell half after the asset doubles to reduce cost basis. I did that with COIN recently, but it also means that I lost out on additional gains.

Literally Bitcoin and nothing else.

But, for the doubters who clearly don't understand what money is, perhaps a fund similar to VGT or VOO.

Also, $15,000-$20,000 in a bank account is really just known as your emergency fund. A Dave Ramsey style 3-6 months of household expenses in case of catastrophe such as job loss.

If I were in this situation and risk-averse, I might set up a series of rolling CDs at my local credit union at 5%+ APR. But that won't keep up with inflation.

But if I were to hold an asset for 8-10 years, and Warren Buffett says you shouldn't buy an asset if you wouldn't hold it for ten years, I would make it Bitcoin.

Of course, others might choose a dividend REIT like O

Sounds like one of the new agents hired to go after billionaires and all of their $600 transactions are coming after you. Maybe calmly explain that you love Biden with all your heart and that you're not an evil billionaire hiding wealth in $600 transactions, and they'll go easy on you.

Otherwise, either pay up or get a lawyer.

This, by the way, is exactly what Tim Pool said these agents are for. Squeezing the little guy who can't tie up IRS lawyers in court. The IRS knows that it can just send everyone making under $120K a letter saying "you owe $100" and they'll pay up. After all, are you going to hire a lawyer to fight over $100?

What? What are we supposed to get from this clip? The joke is clearly that the gorilla is wearing the man's face to "pass" as a man. He even asks for the town's "banana district", as if that's a common thing.

Literally how does your post title, this clip, and the subject matter of the board fit together at all?

The fastest for pharmaceutical grade ivermectin would probably be America's Frontline Doctors. It's very expensive though.
