BAYHAM: Farewell To A Friend On The Other Side Of The Divide

The post, partially quoted, below, is something that people who voted for Hillary and People who voted for Donald should read and take to heart. While I didn't vote for either, I feel caught in the middle as a large percentage of my friends voted for one or the other.

BAYHAM: Farewell To A Friend On The Other Side Of The Divide: "“Congrats Bayham.  I’m despondent and in tears but please enjoy your victory….I can only hope that people like you will protect me  from my government. I have no hope….revel in your victory.  I hope the country gets all it deserves….don’t ask me for anything and f**k off if u are in town….f**k you you fat f**k.” Those are some of the last texts from Patrick, someone I considered my best friend in college. Patrick passed away far too young (late thirties) after suffering from a sudden illness."

Rethinking “Wealthy”: The 5-Step Ladder From Middle Class to Financial Freedom

Rethinking “Wealthy”: The 5-Step Ladder From Middle Class to Financial Freedom: "When your investment income can cover all of your monthly expenses, you are no longer dependent on a job. Not just the minimum costs, but the fun stuff too. Dinners out. Travel. Entertainment. Congratulations, you’ve reached financial independence! You can retire any time if you want. My uncle, a financial genius, used to call this “f#%k you money”—you aren’t dependent on your boss, your job, the government, or anyone else. You can tell off the entire world and then go make yourself a cup of hot cocoa, put your feet up, take a nap, and not worry one whit about what anyone in the world thinks."

Issues muddle DSA roadway: "“We keep looking at other industries and see how automated they are, but when you bring in people from other industries and show them our challenges, they realize this [drilling automation] is far tougher,” said Robin Macmillan, senior V.P. at NOV.  “Other industries don't require geological adaptability, which is one of the main challenges we face. So many things can change, and once an automated system has started, how will it deal with those changes?”"

New Orleans refuses to remove Beauregard Monument after traffic camera mounted to it | THE PUSH POLE

New Orleans refuses to remove Beauregard Monument after traffic camera mounted to it | THE PUSH POLE: "The P.T.G. Beauregard Monument, once slated for removal, will be left up indefinitely after a protester attached a traffic camera to it. In less than two days, the camera had already generated over nine thousand dollars in revenue for city hall. “This camera is great for our city’s safety,” exclaimed Mayor Landrieau, “I want to reiterate that the money has absolutely nothing to do with our decision to leave the Beauregard monument up. This is all about keeping our motorists safe.”"
