Y'all need to lay off DeSantis, he's our best hope

2023.04.02 10:18 WebCommissar Y'all need to lay off DeSantis, he's our best hope

I've been seeing a lot of comrades attacking Ron, and it seems that they're being serious. So, let me educate the ones not in the loop.
Ron DeSantis is our guy.
Dead fucking serious. He's our man on the inside. Now, his exact politics are ambiguous. It's hard to tell just where he lands on a scale of lib to leftist. However, the important thing is that he is not really conservative. He's successfully infiltrated the GOP via a carefully constructed persona and cunning theatrics. Let me explain.

A little background

First off, Ron was born and raised in Jacksonville, one of the largest enclaves of BIPOC culture in all of Florida. Ron's mother was a hippie and his father was a left-wing atheist, they even met at Youngstown State University (which was one of the most liberal colleges in the country at that point). There's a lot of information about Ron's upbringing, most notably his fascination with baseball (the national sport of Cuba) yet, curiously, there's very little on his Churchgoing life, or if he even attended Church at all. Nowadays he's quick to cite his attendance to the OLL Catholic High School, although it's ambiguous how much time he actually spent there. It's possible he wasn't there longer than a semester, if even that.
The point is, Ron was not born or groomed into conservatism like most Republicans are. Even after graduating Dunedin High School, he pursued a liberal education at both Yale and Harvard. It wasn't even until 2012 that Ron got involved with politics at all, running as a Republican in an overwhelmingly Republican district (6th congressional district), one that hasn't elected a Democrat since the party switch. He won, and proceeded to have a very uneventful, middle-of-the-road congressional career. He also married Casey Black, an openly feminist journalist and Charleston alumni with a major in Economics and a minor in French.
So, up until his bid for governor, Ron DeSantis has been anything but the typical Republican. In fact, he's been battling RINO accusations since as far back as Michael Cohen's political relevancy (if any of you even remember him). His actions are less consistent with a Republican ideologue and more consistent with someone who secretly loathes the party they're in but is trying to keep up appearances. A bit like an anti-Krysten Sinema, if you will. But, as the heading indicated, that's only the background. Let's get to the interesting part.

A series of Saul Goodman gambits

I know you've read about Ron in the news, or at least in posts here. I'm sure everyone here knows about Martha's Vineyard, LibsOfTikTok, the "war on woke". These would all be very fashy things if they were meant to succeed. But, that's just it: they weren't. Let's go down the list.
The Martha's Vineyard Stunt: Everyone knows about this act of cruelty: Ron kidnapped a bunch of undocumented latinx immigrants and stranded them in frozen weather. The left was outraged, the right was cheering and Ron became a hero to the conservative cause. But let's take a closer look. It's common knowledge in lefty circles that the undocumented immigrants were shipped from Texas to Florida, and then to Massachusetts. At first glance it's the actions of an extreme hypocrite: a xenophobe who complains of "illegals" swarming his home, but can't even find any within his own state. This wasn't by accident. Florida has 772,000 undocumented immigrants (source). Ron could have just much more easily found immigrants in Palm Beach or Broward, but he deliberately chose to 1) Subtly undermine his own stunt and give an optical victory to the left 2) Relocate dozens of undocumented immigrants out of Texas, one of the cruelest states to immigrants in general (particularly of a latinx background). Martha's Vineyard is one of the richest parts of one of the most migrant-friendly states in the country. No matter how you slice it, their lives are vastly improved and it was all done on Florida's payroll.
LibsOfTikTok: Here's a much shorter breakdown. When infamous TikTok Nazi and serial doxxer, LibsOfTikTok, got doxxed herself, Ron DeSantis publicly announced that he would offer refuge in his governor's mansion. He got a lot of praise from the right and scorn from the left. Then he didn't do it.
The War on Woke: Here's another long breakdown, although not as long as I had expected. Ron's made constant news coverage with his supposed "war on woke", a series of proposed laws and regulations that would criminalize leftist thought and persecute minorities. This is absolutely a terrifying force to be playing with. However, this is the point that I need to remind y'all: Ron went to Harvard. He graduated with a JD. These laws haven't just failed, they were designed to fail. You've heard of failproof? These were successproof, and intentionally so. The Reedy Creek board has no control over Disney, yet Ron gets credit for "taking down woke Disney". The "stop-woke" law targeting colleges couldn't even make it past a conservative judge. The supposed book bannings have even had the comical side effect of removing the bible from many Florida public schools, a matter which he had curiously not anticipated despite being the architect of their machinations. I'm sure many here assume that these outcomes are all the product of stupidity, but that's not the case. "But why make laws that aren't supposed to succeed?" Well, that's where things get really interesting.

Why would Ron do all this?

Isn't it obvious? Publicity.
It's easy to forget, but Trump is still the defacto leader of Republican Party. There's no sign of a mass exodus from him anytime soon. He is their strongman, he is the new Reagan. Forget Biden, Trump is Ron's final boss. It's also easy to forget that Trump gets billions worth of publicity for free. Nobody can afford to compete with that, not conventionally. Ron is trying to beat Trump at his own game. But there's a clear difference between the two: Trump is a true Republican and has been his whole life. Behind every zany university scam is a trail of ruined lives and stepped on people. Trump has left behind a verifiable trail of destruction. But DeSantis? His big ploys for attention have been victimless. He gave a better life to undocumented immigrants. He wooed right wing voters with authoritarian laws that had no chance of coming to fruition. He's boasted about making the GOP stronger while undermining it every step of the way.
Even John Oliver's Ron DeSantis segment had trouble making substantial criticisms of him. I think this is perhaps because the Last Week Tonight staff are more thorough in their investigations than most legitimate journalists. For example: in the entire 30 minute segment, not once did John ever mention Martha's Vineyard or LibsOfTikTok. In fact, one has to wonder if John is in on it when he spent most of the time playing up Ron's "conservative strongman" persona in a way that would actually make him appealing to the Republican voterbase. In fact, if you watch that segment with the idea of it being pro-DeSantis propaganda, it's actually more effective than it was as a liberal hitpiece. John even felt the need to mention that Trump is the worse between the two.
Which brings me to my final point, and possibly the most important:

What is Ron's relationship with Trump?

That's a topic that the media has been musing over for the last year, but it's really not that hard to figure out. Early on, everyone talked about the "rivalry" between the two. This rhetoric heated up as Trump's jabs at him became meaner and even borderline slanderous. Yet Ron has been careful not to fight back, even attempting to be cordial with Trump.
So, that means Ron likes Trump, right?
Dead wrong. Dead fucking wrong. The biggest piece of evidence that Ron does not like Trump is the fact that he's gearing up to run in 2024 at all. He's only 44 years old. There's no urgency for him to run in 2024. The only reason he would have to dedicate himself to such a clusterfuck of a year is that it's likely his only chance to usurp Trump. Does anyone really expect such a decrepit, out of shape piece of shit to run in 2028? 2028 would likely be easier for Ron, who will only be 48 (an actual child compared to most presidential candidates). Plus he wouldn't be running against a Dem with the incumbent advantage.
No matter how you slice it, the only way Ron's 2024 bid makes any sense is if you view it as pure spite against Trump.
But that circumstantial evidence isn't enough. Instead, I'd like to allow Ron to speak for himself. On the topic of Trump's indictment, Republicans (even supposed "never Trumpers" like Romney) have been outspoken in defense of Trump. Well, with one notable exception. When asked about his thoughts on Trump possibly being the victim of political persecution, DeSantis (who is not one to pass up an opportunity to speak out about Democrats) only had this to say:
He's trying to do a political spectacle … I've got real issues I've got to deal with here in the state of Florida (source)
Ron DeSantis was practically given the chance to woo the Trump voterbase. And yet, a man known for being thunderous and commanding instead responded with... silence. It's perhaps the loudest silence of all: the silence of endorsement.
I rest my post.

TL;DR Ron DeSantis' inexplicable and sometimes illogical political career is a carefully crafted, carefully acted ploy to undermine Trump and possibly the GOP as a whole.

I drove home from school this weekend to get a few games on my Wii U before the eshop closed. Unfortunately, I can’t find my gamepad charger anywhere ):
I can order one online but obviously that won’t arrive before the eshop closes. I’ll I was looking into the possibility of modding it since I won’t be able to buy the games I was looking at, but everything I found online says I need to update the console first. Will I be able to update my Wii U after the estore closes? I’m so bummed rn ):

2023.03.13 19:36 John-The-Bomb-2 I'm a 29 year in the US who wanted to give advice to all the teens

My local city commissioner made a post on Facebook about a local high school university/careeROTC fair, and it got me thinking about what advice I would give the young people. I'm a former computer programmer who worked for Amazon, got a bachelor's in Computer Science from the University of Florida in my home state, and ultimately ended up on disability for brain stuff (bipolaschizophrenia/stuff). Here's my advice:
•1 If you can get into an Ivy League school like Harvard or MIT, go, even if it means spending months going through multiple SAT test books cover-to-cover studying every question to figure out why each answer is what it is, sucking up to teachers during extra help to get them to write a good personalized teacher recommendation for you, running for bullshit leadership positions that don’t grant you any real power just so you can put them on your application, doing an extracurricular activity which you will end up abandoning in the future, doing volunteer work that a brain damaged person could do, and studying and doing homework every weekday until you fall asleep. These schools give the most financial aid, have the highest graduation rates, and look the best on a job resume or on your LinkedIn (which is like Facebook but for work). The reason they use these metrics is because people who succeed in them tend to be more successful in life and give more money in donations back to the school later, resulting in them having more spare cash for scholarships.
•2 If you can’t get into an Ivy League school, go to the most competitive in-state school (in my home state of Florida it was the University of Florida) that you can get into. In-state tuition is offered at no profit for them, so it’s a great deal financially for you. Note that public universities look less at your leadership positions than Ivy League schools do and will let in asocial (no extracurriculars) people with high SAT scores (which is how I ended up at UF and not Harvard or MIT). Note that it might make more sense if your family is low on money to do your first 2 years at a Community/County college and then transfer to like a good state school, see bullet point 7.
•3 If you can’t get into an Ivy League school or public in-state university, seriously consider not going to college. Non-ivy private schools like my local Nova Southeastern University have between a third and half of students not graduating, ending up in a lifetime of debt, sometimes unable to afford children or retirement because of it. The absolute worst are for-profit private universities. At the nursing ones in my area, more than half of the people who complete graduation can’t pass the licensing exam or ever practice. The price of tuition is a lie – the actual cost to universities is like $10,000 per student per year not including housing – they just jack up the price so they can make more money with stupid people taking out loans that will never stop following them and they give a fraction of that money back as financial aid, making people think they got a good deal. If you’re not getting fat financial aid from a non-Ivy, non-state university (I'm talking over $20,000 a year in financial aid) and you don’t have steadfast determination to what you're studying, then it’s definitely not worth it (note: the chance of dropping out is higher if you have a mental illness). Me personally, I actually started in pre-med but when I was having difficulty with the memorization stuff I took a semester off to sneak into other courses pretending to be a student without the professors knowing and I found that I liked coding and it wasn't super memorization heavy, so I switched to Computer Science.
•4 There is no shame in going to Technical College, beauty school, or an apprenticeship in a physical trade. Doing something which requires no training is not advisable because it won’t pay enough to have your own place without at least sharing a kitchen and maybe a bathroom with someone else for most of your life (even if you never have kids) and being poor on average majorly reduces your happiness in life (like you may find yourself having to eat nothing but rice and lentils for days at a time to save on money). The unemployment rate is also higher for people with no specialization because they’re easily replaceable.
•5 If you’re interested in fighting for your country, the government will pay for your college and in that case you can consider a non-Ivy, non-state school without having to worry about getting massively ripped off because you're not paying for it. The absolute worst thing that can happen is you drop out during ROTC and have to serve as a soldier for about as long as you were given free school (which can potentially get you killed).
•6 This is a side note, but the best measurement of how good a school is is what SAT score the admitted students have. The higher the score the smarter the students (and the smarter the students the harder the classes will be). Like my first two years I actually went to the University of Michigan and my second two years I went to the University of Florida and the classes were identical just at UMich the kids were a little smarter and the curves on the exams were a little tougher to compensate, but all my classes transferred over. A public university and a private university with the same SAT scores for admission are about equal – just because a private university charges more money doesn’t mean it’s better, it just has a higher margin of profit on the degree it’s selling you (think of education as an investment). If you take almost all AP classes your last two years of high school and get almost all 4’s and 5’s on the AP exams like I did, college will be a lot easier than high school – for most people who tried to get into an Ivy League school, university is easier than high school but also they don’t tell you to do homework every day in university so you have to be more self-motivated. If two schools have equally high SAT scores for applicants and cost the same I would make the decision on which one I want based on how highly ranked it is in a field (that preferably leads to a real job) that I’m interested in (although a big part of the ranking is usually PhD research which doesn’t affect your education but might be good if you want a part time job as a research assistant). Research what jobs are out there and what degrees or skills they look for. Consider finding a person with that job on LinkedIn or Reddit (maybe find a subreddit that revolves around a particular field or profession you're interested in and message some people in it). Watch YouTube videos by people with that job where they talk about their job (ex. “Why I became a programmer”). Be aware of how much education certain jobs require. For example, writing code for a big website like Amazon or Google usually requires a bachelor’s degree in computer science or computer engineering (4 years of school) but working as a chemical engineer usually requires a bachelor’s and master’s in chemical engineering (6 years of school). Working on ChatGPT requires a PhD.
•7 The problem with some bottom tier public community/county colleges like my local Broward College is they don’t look as good on a resume and the people who graduate from them usually can’t land the “elite” white-collar jobs. Like to get a $150,000 starting, $500,000 total compensation mid-career coding job at a company like Google or Amazon you have to pass algorithm puzzles that mentally are like a cross between a hard math problem and a game of chess and people from community college can almost never pass these screenings. Sometimes certain things, like being a bad test taker or being bad at studying, follow you later in life, like if and when you need to pass some sort of licensing exam to work in a profession. You could use a community/county college to get your general prerequisites out of the way for cheaper (no paying for boarding) and then transfer to a better school after two years, but you’ll have to get much better SAT scores and study harder than the other people there. This approach is probably a good idea if you can’t afford the boarding at a non-local state school or if you slacked off in high school and couldn’t get into any good non-local state school but intend to try extra hard and really master the SAT while in community/county college. Fortunately for people who transferred to a better school, employers just care where you graduated from – they may run a check with the place you graduated from to verify your diploma but they usually don’t bother asking for or reading your full transcript. After your first job you can get away with leaving your college GPA off your resume but try to have above a 3.5 unweighted to help land your first job. Grades are inflated nowadays more than they used to be so a 3.5 isn’t that hard. Depending on how tough the job market and the economy are when you graduate it might help.
•8 Have good relationships with your coworkers and get a good vibe from them before you accept a job offer because ultimately you will be learning from them (especially if it’s your first job), working with them, and using them as a reference for your next job. Also some companies are shady (which managers will hide from you) but if you find an honest coworker to talk to before you accept the offer you might miss a landmine or scam job. If you’re going to put your email or phone number on your LinkedIn, use a second email or a Google Voice phone number because some recruiters, especially tech recruiters from India, will never ever stop calling and emailing you after they get your number no matter how many times you tell them to stop. They have contact information farms hooked up into regularly posted job ads where if you submit a resume with your contact info on it they will store your resume in their database forever and regularly call and email you about openings from other employers who are paying them even if those other jobs are shit. Their computers scan the resumes for keywords and send out auto-emails based on the keywords, so even if on your resume it says “I used the Java programming language at this job but I disliked it so please no Java work” their computer will see the word “Java” on your resume and automatically shoot you openings that are looking for that and you can never get them to remove that old resume of yours from their system. Keep in mind who is making money off who because recruiters and HR (Human Resources) DO NOT work for you.
•9 College is a great place to find someone who you will eventually marry. You will meet a lot of open, single people. The chance of getting divorced in general goes down the later you get married up until age 28 at which point it starts to go up as all the good people have been taken. The adult world is more closed off to new people than college is and it is harder for adults to make new friends. People change more when they’re young than when they’re older and people who marry young are more likely to find they’ve grown apart from their spouse. Also, the risk of divorce increases up until about 5 years into a marriage, which is when the feeling that you’ve fallen in love wears off and you have to actually like and tolerate the person given that you are no longer willing to give more into the relationship than they are putting in. I recommend people find someone to marry by mid to late college, try and stick with them for 3-5 years before getting married, and then you’ll be in a pretty stable place for a lifelong relationship and possibly kids after marriage. If you don’t find someone in college, online dating is worth trying with some websites like OkCupid offering the ability (for a fee) to filter people in or out based on how they answered certain questions (like politics, lifestyle, morals, religiosity, etc) which is better for something serious than swiping left or right just based on looks. I know people who ended up in a good marriage with someone who had a high OkCupid question match percentage with them so maybe that’s better for something serious than Tinder. Also not everyone has to get married and not everyone has to have kids – no shame to people who don’t follow the traditional path.
•10 Most jobs aren’t that fun, and most people have more fun in college than at work. This is to be expected because you pay money for college but others pay you money for work. Just try to find something you don’t hate, but keep in mind that a job is fundamentally an exchange of your time for money.
•11 God forbid you develop a serious mental illness like schizophrenia or something like what I did or something else happens that makes it impossible for you to do or get any job, do not be afraid to apply for government disability benefits (called SSDI in the US if you have a work history or SSI if you don’t). Have a regular doctor who you have a good relationship with who can convey in the medical records the seriousness of your condition so they can approve you. Tax money comes out of every one of your paychecks to pay for government disability insurance. Based on the medical records and answers to questions asked of someone close to you about you, they have to be convinced that you can’t do or be employed in any real job for you to be approved for government benefits, which can last a lifetime. Private corporation disability benefits last a maximum of 10 years for mental illness claims but if you have a history of mental illness in your family it is worth paying for private unemployment insurance.
•12 Try and cut added sugar (sucrose, the white sugar in cake, cookies, ice cream) out of your diet. It causes dental cavities (which are expensive and/or painful depending on whether you get them fixed or not) as well as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Many ancient skeletons of people have no dental cavities because they didn't eat sugar. I have a fluoride allergy so I don't use toothpaste but I never had a cavity. I cut sugar out of my diet when I was 13 and at first it was a tough addiction to escape but eventually my taste just got used to that and I stopped liking it. Set good habits like eating healthy and not smoking when you're young because you get addicted to things easier when you're young and your habits stick with you. I replaced items with sugar like ice cream with nutritionally equivalent items without sugar like 1% fat milk and cheese. Replaced cereal with sugar with cereal without sugar (it's hard to find but I found one brand that was like that, I think it's called "shredded wheat"). Try and replace processed white carbs like white bread and white rice with unprocessed brown carbs like whole wheat bread and brown rice because they contain more fiber which reduces your risk of colon cancer and they break down into blood sugar slower which reduces your risk of diabetes. You may not think about how long you have left when you're young but there are people who pay into Social Security their whole life and die before they ever collect and there are people who live to 115+ years old who collect much more out of Social Security than they paid in so as far as getting as much as you can get it benefits you to live a long time and be healthy. Exercise is great but when you get old or disabled you can't exercise and if you don't eat healthy when you can't exercise you get fat and sick but me, I can't walk most of the time due to neurological brain stuff but I'm still thin and healthy because I eat well.
Okay, that's all I got. Good luck.

2023.03.13 19:21 John-The-Bomb-2 Advice from a 29 year old in the US who graduated college and got a job

If you take almost all AP classes your last two years of high school and get almost all 4’s and 5’s on the AP exams like I did, college will be a lot easier than high school – for most people who tried to get into an Ivy League school, university is easier than high school but also they don’t tell you to do homework every day in university so you have to be more self-motivated. If two schools have equally high SAT scores for applicants and cost the same I would make the decision on which one I want based on how highly ranked it is in a field (that preferably leads to a real job) that I’m interested in (although a big part of the ranking is usually PhD research which doesn’t affect your education but might be good if you want a part time job as a research assistant). Research what jobs are out there and what degrees or skills they look for. Consider finding a person with that job on LinkedIn or Reddit (maybe find a subreddit that revolves around a particular field or profession you're interested in and message some people in it). Watch YouTube videos by people with that job where they talk about their job (ex. “Why I became a programmer”). Be aware of how much education certain jobs require. For example, writing code for a big website like Amazon or Google usually requires a bachelor’s degree in computer science or computer engineering (4 years of school) but working as a chemical engineer usually requires a bachelor’s and master’s in chemical engineering (6 years of school). Working on ChatGPT requires a PhD.
•7 The problem with some bottom tier public community/county colleges like my local Broward College is they don’t look as good on a resume and the people who graduate from them usually can’t land the “elite” white-collar jobs. Like to get a $150,000 starting, $500,000 total compensation mid-career coding job at a company like Google or Amazon you have to pass algorithm puzzles that mentally are like a cross between a hard math problem and a game of chess and people from community college can almost never pass these screenings. Sometimes certain things, like being a bad test taker or being bad at studying, follow you later in life, like if and when you need to pass some sort of licensing exam to work in a profession. You could use a community/county college to get your general prerequisites out of the way for cheaper (no paying for boarding) and then transfer to a better school after two years, but you’ll have to get much better SAT scores and study harder than the other people there. This approach is probably a good idea if you can’t afford the boarding at a non-local state school or if you slacked off in high school and couldn’t get into any good non-local state school but intend to try extra hard and really master the SAT while in community/county college. Fortunately for people who transferred to a better school, employers just care where you graduated from – they may run a check with the place you graduated from to verify your diploma but they usually don’t bother asking for or reading your full transcript. After your first job you can get away with leaving your college GPA off your resume but try to have above a 3.5 unweighted to help land your first job. Grades are inflated nowadays more than they used to be so a 3.5 isn’t that hard. Depending on how tough the job market and the economy are when you graduate it might help.
•8 Have good relationships with your coworkers and get a good vibe from them before you accept a job offer because ultimately you will be learning from them (especially if it’s your first job), working with them, and using them as a reference for your next job. Also some companies are shady (which managers will hide from you) but if you find an honest coworker to talk to before you accept the offer you might miss a landmine or scam job. If you’re going to put your email or phone number on your LinkedIn, use a second email or a Google Voice phone number because some recruiters, especially tech recruiters from India, will never ever stop calling and emailing you after they get your number no matter how many times you tell them to stop. They have contact information farms hooked up into regularly posted job ads where if you submit a resume with your contact info on it they will store your resume in their database forever and regularly call and email you about openings from other employers who are paying them even if those other jobs are shit. Their computers scan the resumes for keywords and send out auto-emails based on the keywords, so even if on your resume it says “I used the Java programming language at this job but I disliked it so please no Java work” their computer will see the word “Java” on your resume and automatically shoot you openings that are looking for that and you can never get them to remove that old resume of yours from their system. Keep in mind who is making money off who because recruiters and HR (Human Resources) DO NOT work for you.
•9 College is a great place to find someone who you will eventually marry. You will meet a lot of open, single people. The chance of getting divorced in general goes down the later you get married up until age 28 at which point it starts to go up as all the good people have been taken. The adult world is more closed off to new people than college is and it is harder for adults to make new friends. People change more when they’re young than when they’re older and people who marry young are more likely to find they’ve grown apart from their spouse. Also, the risk of divorce increases up until about 5 years into a marriage, which is when the feeling that you’ve fallen in love wears off and you have to actually like and tolerate the person given that you are no longer willing to give more into the relationship than they are putting in. I recommend people find someone to marry by mid to late college, try and stick with them for 3-5 years before getting married, and then you’ll be in a pretty stable place for a lifelong relationship and possibly kids after marriage. If you don’t find someone in college, online dating is worth trying with some websites like OkCupid offering the ability (for a fee) to filter people in or out based on how they answered certain questions (like politics, lifestyle, morals, religiosity, etc) which is better for something serious than swiping left or right just based on looks. I know people who ended up in a good marriage with someone who had a high OkCupid question match percentage with them so maybe that’s better for something serious than Tinder. Also not everyone has to get married and not everyone has to have kids – no shame to people who don’t follow the traditional path.
•10 Most jobs aren’t that fun, and most people have more fun in college than at work. This is to be expected because you pay money for college but others pay you money for work. Just try to find something you don’t hate, but keep in mind that a job is fundamentally an exchange of your time for money.
•11 God forbid you develop a serious mental illness like schizophrenia or something like what I did or something else happens that makes it impossible for you to do or get any job, do not be afraid to apply for government disability benefits (called SSDI in the US if you have a work history or SSI if you don’t). Have a regular doctor who you have a good relationship with who can convey in the medical records the seriousness of your condition so they can approve you. Tax money comes out of every one of your paychecks to pay for government disability insurance. Based on the medical records and answers to questions asked of someone close to you about you, they have to be convinced that you can’t do or be employed in any real job for you to be approved for government benefits, which can last a lifetime. Private corporation disability benefits last a maximum of 10 years for mental illness claims but if you have a history of mental illness in your family it is worth paying for private unemployment insurance.
•12 Try and cut added sugar (sucrose, the white sugar in cake, cookies, ice cream) out of your diet. It causes dental cavities (which are expensive and/or painful depending on whether you get them fixed or not) as well as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Many ancient skeletons of people have no dental cavities because they didn't eat sugar. I have a fluoride allergy so I don't use toothpaste but I never had a cavity. I cut sugar out of my diet when I was 13 and at first it was a tough addiction to escape but eventually my taste just got used to that and I stopped liking it. Set good habits like eating healthy and not smoking when you're young because you get addicted to things easier when you're young and your habits stick with you. I replaced items with sugar like ice cream with nutritionally equivalent items without sugar like 1% fat milk and cheese. Replaced cereal with sugar with cereal without sugar (it's hard to find but I found one brand that was like that, I think it's called "shredded wheat"). Try and replace processed white carbs like white bread and white rice with unprocessed brown carbs like whole wheat bread and brown rice because they contain more fiber which reduces your risk of colon cancer and they break down into blood sugar slower which reduces your risk of diabetes. You may not think about how long you have left when you're young but there are people who pay into Social Security their whole life and die before they ever collect and there are people who live to 115+ years old who collect much more out of Social Security than they paid in so as far as getting as much as you can get it benefits you to live a long time and be healthy. Exercise is great but when you get old or disabled you can't exercise and if you don't eat healthy when you can't exercise you get fat and sick but me, I can't walk most of the time due to neurological brain stuff but I'm still thin and healthy because I eat well.
•13 Don't put all your money in one place because it could all disappear. Like as you get older and have some savings, have a mix of cash in a bank account, bank Certificates of Deposit (called bank CD's), government bonds, stock market indexes (like the S&P500, which is an average of the top 500 stocks), and precious metals like gold. If something crazy happens like the banks and government fails or the stock market goes to zero or a world war breaks out, you will still have a little bit of wealth even though some of your money disappeared.
Okay, that's all I got. Good luck.
