Having a high IQ is not enough to have success in life. You must also de dedicated and conscientious. Liberals like you are generally very low in conscientiousness and high in disorganization. Sorry things did not work out for you. It is a shame because high IQ is almost 50% of the climb. However, as all left wingers I am quite certain you do not believe in IQ or intelligence.


Missed the point on both counts Bucko. I was not referring to the prosperity of the human race but to your comment about getting no return on investment as pertains to "free money".

and: "sorry things did not work out for me"? :lol: As I pointed out ,and as you predictably missed, your's and predatory capitalism's "climb" obviously does not include a way station called "peace of mind". I doubt you can understand the concept except in terms of $$$$$$$$$$. Predatory capitalism brain washes us to the credo of: The more $ one has, the more peace of mind one has. Peace of mind is :eek: ….. free. Here's a concept I am certain you will not understand and will immediately relegate to your favorite simple minded trash bin of "Liberals /Conservatives". When I started my run in the economic game I set a major goal of not having a lifetime dance to the dollar . My goal was to achieve enough wealth so that I would reach a point where I would never have to worry or even have to think about money again. I have reached that goal in spades (It "worked out" for me :lol: ) I quite frankly don't give a shit about money. Because of my real estate empire ( :lol: ) I get to live for free on the coast of Maine come summer and in the tropics come winter.

On a more charitable note, I hope things work out for you Bucko and that no homeless folks urinate in your presence.

I normally don't waste much time with Johnny One Notes like you but I have been sitting in a hospital bed for 4 weeks and am bored shitless. hopefully i'll be out in 2 weeks and back to more interesting and open minded conversations.

Unthinking Majority wrote:@Julian658 is right. You were intelligent but unfocused or undisciplined (some people call lazy) and unwilling or unable to dedicate yourself to academics. That's fine but don't call it anything else. All the other bullshit is just there to protect your ego. "I'm smart but f*** the system", give us a break man. You preferred fucking off.

By your simple minded rules I am sure you are correct. However I play by my rules and have all of my life. Please refer to my response, above, to #658.
And, please, try thinking for once in your life :lol:

He has a house worth about a million, spends winters in Florida. I've met him, you are always wrong, but multiply that by 1,000 this time.

The thing i agree with is that chasing money and fame and status etc is a fools errand. I'm just saying getting bad grades there's a bit more to it than that. The important thing is that you're happy and content with what you have. People only need their needs met.

I am glad he put his talents to work. The capitalism he hates has given him a very high standard of living. I have to assume his anti-capitalism is just virtue signaling. Quite typical of the elite left. Note how he goes to Cuba and takes selfies with the peasants, more virtue signaling.

I am definitely a "capitalist/socialist". I hate PREDITORY capitalism which in your myopic eyes makes me a communist.

See that neighborhood behind the fishing dragger Maureen? I used to live there. Nothing "elite" there. Just real fucking people.

Seems to me you are a typical elitist who sits around passing judgement on anyone who isn't just like yourself :eek: .

But then a propagandist would have to do that.


There is nothing annoying about him. He is a fascinating near perfect specimen of a typical self righteous know it all right wing elitist. An interesting specimen for sure.

I would require the tenants to clean and maintain their living quarters. I would also hope they can cook their own meals. Or eat in the compound cafeteria. I would also give them a job in the community to maintain common grounds, the swimming pool, and the golf course. If they refuse I would just put them in a standard homeless shelter, Your approach encourages people to go homeless so they don't ever have to work. Tsk, tsk!


Spoken like someone who does not understand homelessness even a little bit. About on par with your absurd "teach people to fish" comment.

I would go on but I have to leave for work at the clinic for people experiencing homelessness now. :roll:

A lefty liberal virtue signaler from Maine that has retired in million dollar vacation homes. Hillary Clinton has nothing on you.

Go take more selfies with Cuban peasants to show the world how magnanimous you are. Leave your privileged life and go sit on the malecón in Havana all day long and see how much you like it.

And now photos with working class people, how cool! Living by the peer in Maine, poor you!

Dude, this is not Facebook.

Another POD like poster who poses as a Republican. Stop your virtue signaling about working with homeless, just do it.

You're projecting again.

I believe the left has a legitimate role in speaking for the disenfranchised. They are needed in society and they provide a valuable service.

However, you also have the phony virtual signal types that are capitalists to the core and preach socialism to the poor. The hypocrisy is palpable! He is no different than the BLM activist (see above), Danny Ortega, Hillary Clinton, etc.
