Come on now I know one of you took it? The Dow dropped 250 million points in the last few days. OK so that’s a bit of an Exaggeration, just a bit though. Be honest now, which one of you took all that money? I want my cut. 14 billion withdrawn in the last few days, where did it all go? It had to go someplace didn’t it.
Well it wouldn’t all fit under a mattress. I doubt it would have been buried in a a backyard. So whats all the fuss? Did the money vanish? Was it abducted by aliens? No! It wasn’t so why all the fuss the moneys still out there. Stop panicking and relax. Its fake money, it’s all fake money. Its pixels and electrons.
Never thought of it that way did you. Looking at your portfolio and seeing those shrinking numbers scare you all to hell huh. The stock exchange is one giant video game you’ve been pumping money into it for however long and watched it go up up up up up well now its going down. Way down. and your losing your investment. No one said it was safe did they? Ok so your broker may have but they lie more often than military recruiters do why are you surprised by this. Face it were screwed. Start burying it in the yard maybe or put it somewhere safer like in a mattress. The money isn’t gone you just don’t have it anymore, someone else does. Probably someone in India, call tech support and yell at whoever answers.
Welcome to the global economy, we can’t seem to get our shit together, thank your local representatives. Everyone wants to blame the President, well he doesn’t get a vote. Put the blame where it belongs for a change want to know who yours is? Oh and the fact that you don’t is a whole separate conversation.
"Whatever you do, don´t stop writing, write only for yourself if that´s what you want". It might sound as nothing, but in a time in which I doubted so much about myself, it meant the world for me.
