Pedro's Corner

Half-formed posts, inchoate philosophies, and the germs of deep thought.

You've never experienced police repression, guy. You're a little bitch. Some punks vandalized a statue. The police wasn't even there harassing them while they did it. You've never been chased down with tear gas and rubber bullets, you've never sat in a room getting tapped with a baton by a guy who knows he can leave you there bleeding out with all your bones broken and he would get a promotion. You don't have friends who were shot at by the police because they were protesting against arbitrary arrests or a coup, you haven't seen them show an elected congressman on TV in his underwear which he shat because they had been torturing him, laughing at him while they made him twirl about. You punk. You sold kilos of drugs and the police knew you did it and had you dead to rights, and they just sat back while a judge freely decided your lawyers were correct. You haven't been held for years on end waiting to be tried because some cop decided you might or might not be who they wanted for some drug deal you didn't have enough money to bribe your way out of.

What?

You are a pole riding little madame.

All cops are bastards? What the fuck do you know about it, you queer? Oh lol they made you lay down on the curb once, searched your pockets, and gave you all your shit back and said some stern words to you? Oh my god no way? You fucking faggot.

i've been held at gunpoint by police more than my share of times, and i've been locked up and questioned more than a handful of times, indicted twice, charged 7 or 8 times. i dunno man i feel like i have some experience with the police. i think you have a very odd view of policing in america. they do some really bad shit.

Wait, I would say, about 3-6 months, and then start looking.

If you have large positions, start looking at companies that sell toilet paper.

If you have crypto positions, you don't deserve money.

Ask your man though, because the S&P lost a quarter of its value so far this year, and he might want to postpone it.

My most sincere opinion is that you have much bigger problems.

the first step to good problem solving is to ask yourself..."if i ignore this will it go away?"

if the answer is yes, then it's solved.

back to the important question. should i buy the s&p or wait and buy it in a bit?

Look, you're a bubble head, I'm happy for you, go live your best life girl.

But don't you get like an itch to want to understand how the world works sometimes? Like a curiosity about what's happening out there?

"Former BoE Governor warns of a 'very unpleasant period' ahead"

Yeah thank you a lot you fat bastard, totally unimpressive to say that now. Who was saying that 6 months ago? You know, before all the figures just flat out said "the entire planet is in a recession now."

i mean how can the economy be that bad if there are people paying 300% premiums for discontinued colognes?

the economy can be always bad, or always good, depending on where you are in it. it isn't the same for everyone.

For sure, definitely, you would know what a recession is.

I mean that's minimum.
