Women having long hair is an artifact of sexism.
My wife insists our daughter should have long hair, but she hated getting it combed out as combing is painful. I told my wife we should shave her head. My wife disagrees.
Women with long hair are easier for men to control as a man can just grab a handful and drag a woman around.… read more “Sexism”
Politicians are directly controlled by special interests. This is why we have John Deere using copyright laws to stop farmers from repairing their tractors, Intuit using tax law to protect it’s expensive software, and patent trolls using abusive patent laws to extort entrepreneurs.
I am a libertarian, and founded and still run a company with 200+ employees.
VCs destroy capitalism. They force out founders and install hired guns. The VCs and their hired guns break the promises made by founders to their stakeholders. They put insane pressure on growth at all costs. All business ethics are abandoned.
Dave Chappelle is easily the best comedian of all time. The new special shows it. Twitter sucks. Cancel culture sucks.

Instead of allowing corporations to go bankrupt in the 2007 market crash and in the 2020 market crash, we have given them massive government handouts.… read more “Stop Government Handouts”
I have never taken an IQ test that asked questions related to insight into someone trying to take advantage of you. A fundamental factor in my success and every self made business owner I know is that they are better than most people at detecting frauds, scams, dishonesty. It is almost a requirement for a good business owner to develop a deep sense of when someone is scamming you, because someone with money will run into dozens of scams a day trying to take your money.… read more “Underrated Intelligence Factor: Scam Detection”
I receive emails from venture capitalists and private equity constantly. Mostly I see them as annoying spam, but the reality is that this is a predatory industry that does more harm to American GDP than even payday loan sharks or the cigarette companies. Sometimes I reply to troll a little bit. I am sharing this conversation below to demonstrate why all successful founders should steer clear of them.… read more “Conversation with a Venture Capitalist”
