Tweets by The Wise Sloth #30: Investing, Real Estate and Health Care

Cartoon image of a sloth sitting on a mountain top. He is wearing a yellow robe. His head is bowed with his eyes shut, and beams of light shine from around his head. With his left arm, he is holding one finger in the air. Above him are the words, "Tweets by The Wise Sloth."

If you’re going to gamble your money away, the stock market is way more exciting than lottery tickets.

Stock tip: The more articles you see about a company fucking over their employees, invest in their stock. Exploitation=profit=growth=profit.

Stock tip: Invest in pharmaceutical companies making legal amphetamines. Everyone is overworked, and demand for insane energy is always rising.

Rent is a system that allows poor people to pay rich people’s mortgages.

If you earn minimum wage, plan to work at least 5 months per year to save towards your landlord’s retirement.

Renters are as good as indentured servants to their landlords.

When the cheapest rent you can find costs at least two weeks of your wages, your politicians aren’t doing their jobs.

If you pay rent, you’re effectively an indentured servant to your landlord.

It’s hard to get high on life when life is the suburbs.

Suburbia is the perfection of for-profit prisons.

The slogan of every subdivision and strip mall construction company should be: “Building an unsustainable tomorrow, today.”

You’ll never be able to live in your dream home because you spent it building the dream homes of your favorite businesses’ owners.

Any politician who isn’t constantly fighting to lower housing prices is failing at their job.

When Americans aren’t in prison, they have more than twice the space at home.

“When a real estate agent says: “”Are you a first time home buyer?” What a real estate agent means: “Are you a first-time debt prisoner?”

A government capable of building roads for all its taxpayers is capable of building homes for all its taxpayers.

I bet God dies inside a little every time humans pave over more nature to build more strip malls and suburbs.

Suburbia sentences you to perpetual debt, which sentences you to perpetual fear and work, resulting in permanent loss of hope and freedom.

Living in suburbia requires you to perpetually buy/replace/repair expensive stuff you must work to pay for. It’s like living in a labor camp.

Health insurance protects you from extortion if you get sick by extorting you if you stay healthy.

Hospitals give patients bills inflated with insanely high bullshit charges and are surprised when so few customers just don’t pay. #fuckyou2

Obamacare solves the problem of unaffordable healthcare by selling unaffordable insurance that doesn’t cover the cost of healthcare.

Paying five year’s wages for a lifesaving operation is the epitome of extortion.

Doctors give you life via medicine and surgery and then take it away via bills.

There’s a special place in Hell for whoever decided to charge for parking at hospitals.

If America must spend billions of dollars giving stuff away for free, medical texts books should be near the top of the list.

I wish Americans were as concerned with the freedom to buy medicine without a prescription as they are about freedom of religion.

Just once I’d like to hear America’s celebrity doctors say America’s health care system could be fixed by doctors boycotting insurance.

Politicians and soldiers should be as concerned about protecting us from insurance companies as they are about protecting us from terrorists.

If you have to worry about your government taking away your access to health care, patriotism might be more suicidal than virtuous.
