The magic of an inheritance invested
I'm so happy I heard you on Stephanie Miller. You have given me hope. I'm a Blue Dot in the Valley, preparing to move to Wheeling in a few weeks. Now, I know I'm not the only one.
My best "earnings" year was 2020. We'd got COVID, immediately, but survived. I'd retired, after inspecting bridges, Foster-Wheeler boilers & finally huge, gas pipelines (where, you're rolling 7-13 ton pipe over yourself or crawling through them, 12hrs/day, every few minutes. But, Catastrophe Capitalism PAYS lots more, if you just fuck-off in safety, as Essentials (the new Black) have to work SICK, infect loved-ones & get indentured by PASC damage, into uninsured gig-serfdom; without: payed sick-leave, health insurance, overtime, unemployment, Social Security (or other witholding) Worker's Comp, NPI, PPE, sterilizing/ mucosal vax, protection from accrued debt (including rent, surprise out-of-network medical & medication) and of course, intentional re-re-reinfection cascading system & organ damage; Rochelle terms: "preexisting comorbidities," "psychosomatic malingering," or "poor lifestyle choices," like diets deficient in phyto-polyphenol iso-flavones, vitamins & antiinflammatory, anticoagulant or immunomodulatory anti-virals (we'd NEVER heard of 4yrs ago) Nicotinomide riboside, curcumin, NAC, Nattokionase, Serrapeptase, PEA/ Luteolin, Quercetin, Bromelin... because they'd been intentionally told the exact opposite of what we learned, quickly from astute HCW & world reknowned epidemiologists, who've SELDOM proved wrong & told us, IMMEDIATELY, when their emperically informed guesses, were speculative.
Brownstone Institute, GBD & a host of like-minded libertarian think-tank monsters basically dictated dopplegangster duopoly dictates & Catastrophe Capitalism's feeding frenzy flipped serendipitously vacant rent-stabilized hovels of our miscounted dead (when DID we reach our second million excess deaths?) and took our W4 JOBS as we were indentured or evicted. But my retirement portfolio was up 120% by late summer (and it was hippy-dippy AGW-mitigating shit, like PV, PH/EV, renewables, regenerative, SMART, efficient equities, mostly Asian; who'd saved their workers' health, for over 3 years. Go, FIGURE?
