    Default Rant - The system sucks

    Hello friends and adversaries.

    I am going to go into a little tale here about how institutionalized banks and the government fuck the little guy who wants to go into business. Fuck them.

    I'm an average earner, making a little above the median for my state, but that's just enough for me to rent a room from an angry couple and live here with access to a kitchen, toilet, shower and trash can. I'm not rich.

    Recently I was able to secure a private party loan to purchase and stock a vending business. Now, for this type of business apparently you have to have a different type of account because the revenue is wired into the bank account. So I go to the bank to open the account, and there is "Patriot"act shit I have to comply with. Patriot? Fuck them. I had to give them a mountain of paperwork that had to go through their compliance department, then they asked for more, and then more, and then they declined the account. So I go to another bank, and do the same thing. This account gets approved, but they charge $500 to open the account and $100 a month to maintain it. Fine, okay, its worth it but I don't have to like it.

    Then, as I'm working on my approval process for the big mainland bank that processes this shit, and the bigger megalo bank behind that bank, I have to get background checks, credit inquiries, everything but a fucking colonoscopy. So I get that approved, my asshole hurts and then I go to start turning over the machines. But then, the wonderful, omnipotent Experian has decided that nobody can look at my credit (which is very good) because they're trying to protect me! The fuck is good credit worth if nobody can see it?!!!

    So to sum up, we get attacked, the government makes it harder for people to go into business, the banks make it ever harder than that and me, the little guy, pays for all this bullshit through the nose becauase I'm trying to cut out a piece for myself.

    And I have a regular job that they take money from. I feel like you have to be out of your fucking tree to start a business in this country.

    Then you have the big government liberals sucking on Uncle Sam's tit and justifying why we need to waste more money in every corner unfound, and the big government "conservatives" like Dixie explaining why we need more military spending and who cannot see the forest for the trees.

    You're all idiots. IDIOTS!

    Try starting a business and then tell me how fucking great the system is you ASSHOLE!

    Love you guys. Carry on.

    are you still in Hawaii with the cool girls?
    Biography:

    Grind is one of the internets most beloved and influential political thinkers and deep-level theorists in the modern era. He rose to prominence in early 2015 when he alleged, contrary to the dominant theory of christiefanism of the time, that Bill Clintons wife was indeed running for president and wasn't considering settling down to be a grandmother. In 2016, Grind was one of the key figures in proposing the new revolutionary theory of "30% is not a rare occurrence" which shook up the JPP political landscape like no other theory ever had before. His academic prowess, deep-level analysis and remarkable insight into human nature and psychology will undoubtedly result in further complexities being untangled and laid bare. He currently resides in boston, his hobbies include #rekking libs, vaping, and patriotism. You can find him in a thread near you.

    I wont go off on a rant about the Patriot Act... but I deal with that bullshit every single fucking day. Every one who opens an account with me goes through a background check which includes being run through the super duper terrorists data base. Add in all the data that we are now required to get on each client and it sounds very similar to your experience.

    "Scientists don't use "averages". Maybe armchair supertools on message boards ascribe some meaning to "averages" between two random data points. And maybe clueless amatuers "draw a straight line" through two random end data points to define a "trend". Experts don't.

    They use mean annual and five year means in trend analysis. Don't tell me I have to explain the difference to you. "

    Since so many are complaining about how difficult this is; can you explain why a friend of mine was able to open his first tattoo shop, in 2010, and just opened his 3rd shop?
    Plus he did this, during a time when other shops were failing and closing their doors.

    By the way, he doesn't even know how to tattoo or draw.

    Yea, we have to deal with Patriot Act shit and DHS with Chemical plant security issues. It's a giant pain in the ass. Having said that, they don't want a guy like you funneling money to a guy like me that could use it to make a chemical terror weapon. That's not such a bad idea.

    IT's a serious concern that some financial type like you could funnel money to some nut to purchase precursor chemicals.

    I mean think about that damage to society that could be cause if that money allowed Dixie to buy a ton of ammonium nitrate or Failius a cylinder of phosgene gas or if it bought Watermark a plastic spoon. Think of the damage that could be done!

    It's because this "friend" of yours lives inside your head and he's totally imaginary.
