I got much interesting feedback on my last article, largely in an effort to save my soul for capitalist Jesus. Amazingly, this even included Derek, who cited a very long and thorough series of papers. Derek alluded to these papers supporting his contention that America’s health system was actually the best in the world, despite the fact that we have a nationwide infant mortality rate well above Cuba’s, and despite the fact that half a million people file bankruptcy every year, after being totally destroyed just because they needed to go see a doctor.
While I finally read Derek’s citation, I didn’t find any support for his thesis in it. I suspected this to be the case when Derek made his blanket statements. It’s actually a very interesting body of work, and it suggests that the problems endemic to the failed American healthcare system are more complex than most critics (myself included) usually realize.
One of the guys who backs me up on this is Roosh V., who has released a videocast talking about a number of different things, including the story of a young couple he knows personally. The wife began to exhibit the symptoms of the coronavirus, and her husband finally took her to the hospital. Despite having health insurance, the wife was billed over five thousand dollars for a hospital visit, only to be told that she had influenza.
The only way this story could possibly be worse would be the addendum that the wife picked up coronavirus when she went into the hospital for care, and had subsequently expired. (Thankfully, this wasn’t part of the report.) If you have some spare time, feel free to watch Roosh break it down…
I was able to read Derek’s citation, and I was able to watch Roosh pontificate, because I have nothing but free time. I was furloughed from my job for at least six weeks. Despite the fact that the value of all my investments have collapsed, and despite the fact that I have zero income, I am able to live without worrying, and I have even begun supporting a couple of younger family members. Such are the benefits of being a bachelor. I am living well because I do not have a naggy wife, who has spent every dime I have earned in my adult life on frivolous consumer goods.
Apparently, a stimulus package was recently passed, and the free dough will be based on our 2018 tax returns. Given that I made a middle class income that year, I will be getting free money, on top of max unemployment. What a guy like me will do with his TrumpBux is to buy up a bunch of cut-rate stock in blue chip companies. This will not help the economy one iota, though many of us will benefit in the long term. The men benefitting the most will be the 1%, who will see the values of their shares rise with the subsequent investment.
The stimulus is rigged just like the American healthcare racket. It benefits a few people at the top. Funny how every government action seems to end in that mood, no?
The young brothers just starting out, and the serious brothers (looking at you, Jason) who spent 2018 volunteering and trying to clean up the streets, will likely not get a dime. These are the people who would have spent that money, and actually done some good for the American economy.
Donald Trump had an amazing opportunity to become the right wing FDR. Instead he bailed out huge corporations and hung the people who voted for him out to dry. If he were running against anyone other than a senile moron like Joe Biden, I’d predict his demise in November. All the same, I have faith that Trump will snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, as he has done throughout his presidency.
And now it’s time for me to eat my words.
Last October, I predicted that Roosh V. was not abandoning his game scam, as he claimed, but was pivoting into a new scam. I figured that he would follow men like Tucker Max, who exhausted his population of chumps, and immediately pivoted into male feminism, so that he could exploit an entirely new group of suckers.
Picking up Roosh’s monologue at 2:16, we hear him opine:
The manosphere is mostly about getting girls outside of marriage. Men are still doing that, but from my observation the manosphere is dying out. The return on investment from game is so low… Game is dead and the manosphere is dead, too.
I really don’t agree with this. With coronavirus panic, I have so many women wanting the distraction of fucking me that my phone is buzzing 24h per day. Be that as it may, Roosh continues:
The guys in the manosphere continue to attack me, daily. They are watching my content, reading my articles, on top of my tweets. They are obsessed with me and want me to fail. They do this because they want the message of Jesus Christ to fail.
Is Roosh talking about us? I don’t think he had us in mind specifically. I have never considered myself a manosphere type, though this is a men’s blog. I don’t think Roosh pays much attention to a small-time playa, though I might be wrong. Either way, it’s important to own up to bad predictions that might have cast an innocent man in a bad light, and this is a good opportunity.
It might seem, based on my previous article, that I wanted Roosh to fail. I certainly don’t want him to fail. I did condemn Roosh for wasting his life chasing cunt, at the expense of a thousand other parts of a healthy lifestyle. Roosh affirms the truth of this in the second hour of his monologue. The assertion that Roosh was planning to exploit Christian men appears to be wholly unfounded, and I retract them completely. Say what you want about his transformation, he certainly seems sincere in his faith and in his desire to atone for the unproductive advice he gave to us in the past.
