DJ Mondo stunned that ‘wealth seminars’ are still a thing.


So this happened today. A bunch of millionaire celebrities are going to be at a local convention center today to give out their secrets to wealth (well…not give out). 

I’ll repeat that with proper context.

So this happened today. In an age where…

…50% of Americas live below the poverty line

…Government protection of the environment is going extinct in the name of de-regulation of corporations

…social programs that protect the most vulnerable among us are being eliminated

…privatization of traditionally government-managed, tax-supported institutions like public schools are transforming them to a for-profit model

…human essentials like health care, housing and basic income, guaranteed by every other modern government in the world, are becoming scarce

…you can get lead-poisoned at your kitchen sink

…A bunch of millionaire celebrities are going to be at a local convention center today to give out their ‘secrets to wealth’…for 50 bucks (marked down from $150. I guess these celebs are having trouble moving product).  
I guess one can be grateful for someone, anyone to at least attemp to step in where municipal, state and federal government has failed its tax-paying citizenry, even if all they offer is the diversion of a ‘wealth seminar’. And the surreality of seeing a sign like this on a train while you’re riding to an economically depressed part of the city you live in is actually fairly entertaining. 

So thanks, celebrities. I almost feel like I owe you 50 bucks. …Almost.
