  1. The author bases his votes on whether a candidate “likes cats”.

    Whatever he might say elsewhere in the article, I could give a shit about, and I personally love cats.

    In short, He’s a moron.

  2. Bitches that the mayor would “take his public salary and gamble it”… if he earns that salary it is his to do what he wishes with it…

    You know what also really hurts those on the lowest rungs of the economic ladder? Inflation.

  3. The article isn’t bad. I mean it’s a opinion piece, and I agree on lot of the points regarding “Crypto” and VC’s. However, Bitcoin and Crypto are not the same thing. Full stop.
    This takes time to understand. It’s nuanced. Great effort though. You’ll get there guys!

  4. the cultural “elites” who claim domination of the culture wars can only be embarrassed as they realize how empty their principles and arguments are. he should be embarrassed. his cognitive dissonance is palpable. at least we know he has human emotion. that is if we believe what he’s saying.

  5. tldr; Eric Adams, the incoming mayor of New York City, has said he’ll take his first three paychecks in Bitcoin when he becomes mayor. This comes after Miami Mayor Francis Suarez said he’d take one of his paycheques in the volatile cryptocurrency. The crypto bubble is a “loser’s game” for people on the bottom rungs of the economic ladder, writes Andrew Keen.

  6. I think it is too. Look you can have whatever hobbies you want on your own time. You want to buy stocks or digital coins or NFTs, that’s up to you. There was no need to publicize it. Mayor needs to show they are going to take care of business in the city they represent, not ~~Kardashian-like post their cute fur slippers~~ post about them buying internet tokens.
