Yesterday was a great day for Shib investors. It’s sort of funny because this weekend I was talking to my daughter about her Shib bag. She had maybe a total of 20 million, and after we talked, she increased it to over 50 million Shiba tokens. It turned out her weekend investment came at the right time.
Crypto is a very funny little beast. If you are starting and you do not understand it, I would talk to a financial advisor. Due to my mistakes with Dogecoin and listening to perhaps the wrong people, I did things a little differently this go around. Timing is the key!! It also pays to be watchful. So, let’s get down to the rumors about Robinhood. Rumors on Twitter have been swarming about a potential listing by Robinhood.
If it happens, I would be surprised to see it take place this week. I’m not going to lie; it was one of the reasons I went on and purchased more coins. If they do trade Shib, the coin will go up again. I wanted to be a whale, but if Shib keeps going at the rate it’s going at, it will knock that dream out of the water for me. I guess that’s a good thing, but I wanted whale status.
I think my main fear is of the SEC doing something shady. Now that we know they tend to act questionable, it does sort of place a cloud over the potential of crypto trading. I think we need a new department geared towards the stewardship of crypto. I feel like the SEC is too dated with laws reaching back to over 100 years ago that might not be valid in a techno-driven world.
I think crypto brings a certain level of privacy that scares the hell out of governments. It brings a way to create new millionaires and billionaires. We are looking at the beginning of a new financial system. I read an article yesterday which talked about how Bank of America is starting to research crypto. This is huge, and it will not be the last bank to take this project on.
There’s money to be made in the crypto market, and the powers to be are seeing that it isn’t just from Bitcoin. There are a lot of coins that people can get behind, and some of those coins will result in millions. There’s also a chance people could lose a lot of money. I have one daughter who refuses to touch investing on any level. I was willing to give her 50 bucks to put in a small coin, and she declined the offer. You will have a lot of people who are skeptical of change.
I missed out on Bitcoin because nobody knew anything about crypto. I asked around for years and even researched it, but I had no clue about exchanges or any of that stuff. I credit Robinhood for turning the light on about cryptocurrency. Had it not been for Robinhood, many of us wouldn’t know about Dogecoin or anything else. Before learning about cryptocurrency, I would waste money on rings, Starbucks, and lotto tickets. Sometimes, I would buy the occasional expensive purse here and there.
I managed to take that money that I would put on stupid stuff and get returns that have helped my family out. Last summer, we needed a new AC, and guess what??? My crypto was able to help out. So, I am finding new uses for the money I would normally throw away. That’s why I crypto!
I am not A financial advisor, so before you invest anything, talk to someone who might be able to school you on the ups and downs.
We often hear Trump talk about his similarities to Lincoln, but I wonder if people know just how similar he is to Hitler. History was one of my favorite subjects in college, I studied both American and European historical periods. In the beginning, Trump appeared to have some Lincoln similarities. One of the main reasons the Civil War was fought was because slavery moved into states that were free states. Plantation owners were slowly moving into states that were free of slavery due to the Missouri Compromise. When these plantation owners moved to free states (illegally) to take over land, they would force working people into poverty.
Obama and Trump both saw similarities to the displacement of American workers which is what prompted stricter immigration laws. Prior to Obama coming into office President Bush and President Fox of Mexico encouraged dealings which led the way for illegal immigration to boom in America. Due to the economic crisis that took over around the end of the Bush years, people were tired. They then voted for Obama because at this point, unemployment was horrific.
Obama worked on immigration issues and he also worked on getting some of the hardest hit industries back on their feet. By the time Trump came in office, he was coming into a situation that was already in its healing process. We had a lot of jobs that were open, but sadly not a lot of people were trying to get back to work. https://www.factcheck.org/2016/07/obamas-numbers-july-2016-update/
So, after Obama, Trump enters office. He continues to build on what Obama has already placed into motion and then he doubles down on immigration. While his talking points in the beginning sound a lot like Obama and Lincoln, his actions seem to take a different turn into his presidency. He wages economic wars with rivals and secures business relationships from abroad with various countries. Some of those relationships come into question because of his businesses. Trump then puts tax laws in place to offer relief to those who earn the most while placing boundaries between the poor and well off. https://www.cnbc.com/2020/07/29/trump-suburban-voters-will-no-longer-be-bothered-by-low-income-housing.html
Not only is he placing boundaries in terms of where people are able to live, but he increased sentences on things that were once considered misdemeanors. https://www.americanprogress.org/issues/criminal-justice/reports/2020/02/03/480028/fact-sheet-trump-says-one-thing-another-criminal-justice/ To the naked eye, we hear the word reform and we get excited. However, after you read into the results of the reform, the excitement soon disappears.
As of today, we have Trump taking away unity training which helps to loosen the chains of racism and he has introduced a new form of History for our children. These are things that Hitler did when he was trying to perform a mindwipe on the citizens in Germany. If you are unfamiliar with the term mindwipe, it is a reset of everything you know. Hitler had his own group of people protecting his gatherings before he turned into the mass murderer we all know. Trump has also been quoted telling his Proud Boys to stand by. Trump is even on record talking about getting his own network together to go against FOX News because they did not spread more of his political messages to the public.
With all of these problematic behaviors, why were there so many people who voted for Trump? Could it be that we have a large number of Americans who want some form of a dictatorship? If we are not careful, Trump could send America to its first single party dictatorship which would shatter the America we know and love. Currently, Trump and his allies are trying to corrupt the sacred right of voting. They are using lies and anything else that they can use to have legal votes thrown out. A lot of the votes in Arizona that were labeled fraud came from military families that held that state as their home of record. Just a few articles to show you where we are on keeping up with misinformation.
Sadly, the list goes on and on. https://thehill.com/opinion/campaign/525583-trumps-fraudulent-claims-about-voter-fraud There is a different lie each day and they keep getting thrown out of court. https://apnews.com/article/joe-biden-donald-trump-politics-virus-outbreak-campaigns-22665ea3884c47f883b416e4bd03bf54 At this point, the behavior is a clear indicator that Trump is trying to use the courts to take away Biden’s Presidency. Due to the fact that his allies are mimicking the same claims, we can only conclude that they are part of this attempt to overthrow our pollical system. So, keep informed and stay safe.
I have been fairly silent these last few days okay maybe week because my nerves are shot. There is so much riding on this election and the idea of four more years of Trump is absolutely horrifying. I do not know what tomorrow will bring, but I can tell you, what is already in the works because of Trump. We will have thousands more infected with COVID because of his rallies. Some people with get lucky and have insurance that will help them bounce back, and others might not show any signs at all. However, for some people, this will mark their last November due to a virus that didn’t have to happen.
In a lot of minds people see this as the Democrat vrs the Republican. However, that is not the issue in 2020. We are not waring parties, we are people trying to regain our lives back. There are Republicans that will vote for Biden for the first time in their adult lives. They are doing it out of honor. We all have a duty to protect our sisters and brothers. A lot of us are getting that duty mixed up with the call for freedom. You can still be free and help protect yourself and others.
Tomorrow will be a nation altering day, no matter who wins. Trump has managed to get into hearts and turn them cold without remorse. While I do not know the damage that will be done, or the events to follow, I ask you all to pause and think about something. Before every calamity there is a second of reasoning. There is a moment of reflection that gives us the needed pause to figure out what comes next. What we do tomorrow will set the path for our entire nation. How we vote today will set the path for tomorrow. If you can be okay with leaders stoking anger in a country that is already on the edge of madness, then you must ask yourself, what does America mean to you?
America has always represented a safe haven from the colonial days until today. If we turn back on those values that make us protectors, we have lost the most important battle. Do not let this election suck your humanity out from under you. Be safe and God bless.
