Phrased more intuitively

We are taking systems conceived for social welfare to value all socioeconomic levels of society and restructuring them to serve as profit centers for those of the most fortunate financial circumstances.

This is not going to work out well, anywhere. Once the masses figure it out, they will resist, cease to serve, look after their own only, or rebel.

Home Business

Book: Micro-Entrepreneurship for Dummies

Just got this one from the library today.

I also read the new book "Side Hustle" which really jump-started my mind about how to think about and develop
ideas into income streams, though it did have a heavy emphasis on apps and the not explicitly mentioned game
of needing a lot of customers to succeed at any business. So it's still a social media, pop culture, mass marketing

Kiyosak's books were useful to me, not for real estate, which he says is his real profession but for teaching a different
mindset on how we interface as productive units with capitalism. There is a difference between being worker, investor, owner, capitalist, and when your mindset adjusts your whole way of living toward efficiency, bottom line, and profit for yourself, you have made lasting and permanent changes in how you view the world and how you operate. His book "Conspiracy of the Rich" was the best book of his that I read, though I didn't read them all.

But even with all the reading, it's still difficult to invent and found a viable home business. Mostly I just crawl along.

And home businesses, or side gigs as some call them, are not just for Republicans. Several books have been written about the concept of one's work life being a series of gigs, at home or at work, and how this produces a financial stability independent of any job, employer, or career. Democrats can do this too!

According to a statement from the mayor of Newark, New Jersey, the US Capitol Police notified law enforcement in that city about the threat.

As a result, Newark Police sent members of its Executive Protection Unit to provide security at Booker's home.

The mayor also says the two police agencies are working together to ensure Booker's safety.

Emails! Emails! Emails! Carter Page doesn't want his emails released!


Republicans screamed about HRC's (hacked) emails for many months, now this guy thinks his emails should be kept private.
