The Importance of Starting Each Day Well

For the past month or so, a portion of my lawn has been slowly turning brown and a few small patches even dying. I’ve been putting a lot of work into having a nice green lawn for the kids to enjoy over the summer so it’s been very frustrating to watch. I started watering the lawn a second time later in the day because it was acting like it wasn’t getting enough water, but that still wasn’t doing the trick. I fertilized it, put grub killer on it, and spent far too much time racking my brain as to why the grass hasn’t been flourishing. This morning, Elijah told me that when he went to adjust ...

It takes life energy to pay off debts. A country that just continually gets in more debt and doesn’t even try to live within its means is a country that is ok with stealing the life of future generations to pay their debts for them. Why don’t politicians balance the budget? They are cowards that don’t care about the future generations. They only care about getting re-elected. We have somewhere between 12 and 15 years before all Social Security money is gone. The debt payments in a decade are going to be so massive, they will swallow up all entitlement spending at which point there wi...

The US is in a debt spiral. The federal budget deficit in 2023 could go over 2 trillion dollars and it's rapidly accelerating. There are basically two ways out for the US. Hard default on our debts or print money like crazy and buy our own debt, leading to significant inflation or worse. We almost certainly will go the path of printing.

Things to watch are oil and gas and other commodities around the world being traded in currencies...

The Predictions Were Wrong, AI Will Disrupt Blue Collar Jobs Last

For the past 5-10 years, there have been a lot of predictions about how new technology and Artificial Intelligence would do away with blue collar jobs first. Those predictions were wrong, and it now looks like white collar jobs and even even some creative jobs will be the first to be disrupted. Sam Altman, the CEO of OpenAI spoke about how wrong people’s predictions have been in a recent interview with Reid Hoffman. “I think it’s interesting that if you ask people 10 years ago about how AI was going to have an impact, with a lot of confidence from most people, you would’ve heard, first,...
