People protesting for single payer healthcare with signs encouraging people to honk while standing outside a pediatric hospital wing can fuckoff with a still connected semi-truck air horn that's then repeatedly honked.

Scotch Nature: I-Don't-Phone

Since it's in the headlines let's talk about the opportunity cost of the new $1000 i-phone, which you either up front or in commitments to overpriced cellular phone service.

So back to our original financial prepping premise that most Americans would have to go into further debt to cover a $400 dollar emergency. Yet they don't blink at shelling out two and a half times that for this little status symbol.


So let's say you get a $150 smart phone(check Amazon), what can you do with the remaining $850.

For starters if you were to drop it into your Roth IRA you could have $5821.20 in 25 years, not a nest egg by itself but certainly more valuable than the same i-phone well used is likely to be in 25 years.

If you haven't done any previous disaster preparedness you could get a decent all in one four person kit. Which when combined with your $150 phone will get your further than the $1000 phone alone.

If you're wanting to actually own your own house this is 1% of the price of a starter home in many parts of the country. Come up with another $16,500 and avoid paying PMI.

Or if you already have about a thousand dollars squared away because you've been paying attention to other parts of this series but you are still working on paying off things like credit cards. $850 will save you about $14 a month in interest. Are you telling me you don't have something better to do than keeping paying on 2013's Christmas?

Or since Christmas is coming up get yourself the less expensive phone and don't go into debt THIS year for once.

Friday Fuckoff Open Thread

Libertarian Socialism can fuckoff with the giant wooden cock of the giant wooden horse that it's Marxist proponents wrap around themselves. And Libertarians who are so ignorant of the Marxist's history of adopting the names of those who oppose them will already be fucked off by the Libertarian Socialists.

Also people facebooking while driving on the interstate are about to get to fuckoff with their own steering column when they crash.

Sunday Reading: Welcome to Our Crazy Years

Given that I've had to recently explain that not only were 1984 and Fahrenheit 451 weren't supposed to be instruction manuals but that The Stanford Prison Experiment wasn't either; I'll leave it to Glenn Reynolds to explain why Heinlein's Crazy Years weren't:

Another Keyboard Hung on the Wall

Alas it appears Goodstuff is hanging up the keyboard as far as blogging goes. I will miss his wit and his links. Tending the free icecream machine is in the end a hobby though and only worthwhile when you actually enjoy it and it hasn't become a chore.

Sunday Reading: Healthcare Scarcity

New series here of posting something worth reading in my opinion:

Because we are a largely cooperative species, we do not like that very much. It seems unfair and unkind. So we try to make an end run around scarcity with things such as health insurance and government medical plans, both of which are based on the same economic principle: Someone else pays. But scarcity does not care who is paying: Scarcity is scarcity. In the most monopolistic public-health systems (e.g., the ones in the United Kingdom and Canada), there is a lot of saying “No,” though it is what we might call a “Japanese no” — saying “no” without actually saying it. They put you on a waiting list and hope you die before they actually have to say “No,” or they simply expect you to accept that some services and treatments are categorically unavailable. There is a reason New York City’s hospitals are full of rich Canadians who cannot afford the free health care at home.
Go read the whole thing and see the problems with socialized medicine in a whole new light. You might also start thinking of some new solutions to the real problem.

I'm NOT an Ubermech

This correlates with my idea that all SJWs are white supremacists.  They believe white males are so naturally superior, that unless continually berated they will become “superior.” This correlates with my idea that all SJWs are white supremacists.  They believe white males are so naturally superior, that unless continually berated they will become "superior."
This does beg an interesting question, since I don't believe white males to be inherently superior. What cultural factors are keeping other groups from banding their own social connections and capital and leveraging their own ways ahead?

I don't have a good answer, not one that actually passes my logic gates.

So on an emotional level let me say, no matter who you are:

You can succeed. It may be hard because of things that aren't your fault, it may be hard because of things that are your fault. There will be people above and below you trying to stop you overtly and by subverting your own belief in yourself.  You can still succeed.

I've seen it done against challenges that would humble nearly anyone likely to be reading this. You can succeed.

You aren't a victim of anything you don't let make you a victim, even if you are a survivor and carry scars and wounds and maimings. You can succeed. 

Don't listen to anyone selling you prepackaged insurmountable excuses to fail, don't give into bigotry hateful or patronizing. You can succeed.

If you truly find it necessary to give up and surrender to the forces trying to hold you down do it three minutes after you've taken your final breath, not one second before. You can succeed.

The cult of Social Justice can fuck off in a heterosexual missionary way because that's what will piss them off the most. You narcissistic nihilists aren't content with your own societal suicide, no everyone must be made to care...and drink the kool-aide. All because Mommy and Daddy never actually loved you enough to actually be your parents so nobody can be allowed to be content in their own lives. The floor is yours angry readers.
