It's kind of funny, but if that's your style, that's okay, cause you know, everybody's got their own style, but, yeah, it was a great show. So today, getting back on down on the tracks here, um, we're talking about that person still in your money and that someone is consumerism. Consumerism is what is taking your money. You know, I was just a WalMart back after Christmas and unnoticed that the shelves were already being stocked for Balan Times a day literally a day after Christmas, thes people were stocking the shells of Valentine's Day stuff. It's stupid, You know, this isn't a Wal Mart. It's stupid. Pay attention, guys. As soon as the holiday is over or whatever you call Christmas, Valentine's Day soon is these days air over there already stocking the shelves for the next one. And if that doesn't signal you to be like, Whoa, this is not Hold on. Hold what? They're already stocking the shelves for Valentine's Day. I thought we just celebrated Christmas. Look, guys, they're taking your money. The all these holidays Halloween, Christmas birthdays, Black Friday's Cyber Monday's got It's a scam is such a scam because honest on a black Friday deal quote unquote deal, you can get that same deal almost any time during the year. How many companies give flash 72 hour sales? How many companies give sales throughout the year? That air, just the same exact sales is that black Friday. But the media people they have built so much hype around these stupid holidays like Black Friday, they're just taking your money. They're just taking your money out of your wallet. You're just walking into a WalMart. Somebody grabbed your wallet. Just start swiping it like it's Ah, I don't know a candy machine. They're just sitting there sliding back and forth. They're just taken, you know, hundreds of dollars out of your pocket every time you walk in the WalMart and there's a holic new holiday. It's dumb because the next day after the holiday, everything will be on cell for, like, 75% off, and it's stupid. That's so stupid, because all these sales and all the stuff about your birthday Christmas like these companies plan ahead to make X amount of dollars off of you for this event. I know my bed business, my lazy, my lazy day beds. What I had that I was I would plan to drop. My price is 20% 30% a week or a month before Christmas week before Christmas. And I would I would plan around holidays because you know, people is gonna be buying a bunch of crab they don't really need for people who don't really want it. And you're gonna be in the hole $1000.2000 dollars Because you got to get Susie that Tupperware that you don't know if he's actually gonna like it. And then she probably wanted to use it. So me stupid guys, do you understand that they're stealing money from you? I have not. I don't celebrate holidays and my family they do. They celebrate some things, but I just I just stopped celebrating it. There is no reason to buy people random things on a random day every year. Well, it's not raining day, but it's something we've constructed every year like I'm gonna about Joe's a bunch of screwdrivers like Dude, I bought everybody the Christmas present this last Christmas and this is honestly, the last Christmas. I think I'm ever buying anybody. Presence. It's just so stupid and point like you feel. So when you give people these gifts, you don't feel like you're giving anything because you're you're expecting to receive something back. Like if I give Jimmy $100 worth of, you know, close and he gives me back $100 worth of hats who nobody profited in this deal except for guess what? Walmart Amazon. They just made money off Jimmy and me. $200. We just lost $200 of these companies and people are noticing. It's like this. Somebody just comes in the room, takes her wallet and they don't care. They don't care. And it just blows my mind. Guys, how we have fallen into this consumerism scam, This trap that just takes our money and sucks just sexual life out of us. It's so dumb and like I mean, I'm not trying to sound negative. B negative. Nancy. I'm trying to point out the positives here. Let's say you don't celebrate Christmas. You don't celebrate Easter Valentine's Day. Let's say instead you save that money and you use that money throughout the year to a braid your house, get a new car, get up, invest in a business, investing your stocks. Use that money to take your wife on a lovely date. It doesn't have to be a specific date of the year. That's Valentine's. Oh, because there's a bunch of hearts and chocolates. Oh, this day I have to go blow money and buy the nicest things. No, there's There's 364 other days in a year. Besides that one day of Valentine's Day. We show your love and appreciation to someone. So why should you go all out and then one day it doesn't make any sense. But besides, the fact of these companies want to take your money, they want you to believe that this date is sacred and you have to buy stuff to make this date good for other people. I don't know how any other way I could tell you guys this any simpler way to tell you guys this. Then don't do it. Don't do it on Christmas. What I did this year, I bought everybody presence and it was stupid. I regretted it. I was like, Man sucks. So what I did was I donated all the extra money I had to Charities have donated it to feeding America. And guess what that paid Maur dividends to me to give it buying my cousin a screwdriver. That's so dumb, man. It's so dumb because then they'll buy you something return, and it's just like, you know, there's no real true, authentic feeling in the mix. So some of you may say, Well, what? How can I replace this? Okay, do what this one family did that. I was talking to what they do. They all pulled their money together around a specific time of year. So Christmas they pull their money together, they plan a trip and they all take a trip together. So for Christmas, instead of buying all these stupid presents and stuff we don't need, it's expensive, overpriced crap that goes on 75% sell the next day after the event is over. Just keep that in mind. When you pay $1000 for this watch the next day it's gonna go down to $200. Just keep that in mind. Um, but all these people pull their money to take a vacation like a cruise together as a family, A cruise together of your entire family. And guess what they get out of that cruise experiences bonding, family time, Time off. You get so much Maur and he doesn't have to be a cruise. You could just go state rent a cabin somewhere, go on a hike together, go on a picnic together, have a family reunion, but buying these stupid, senseless, consumerist IQ, I don't know. There's word but gifts and trading them. You get nothing out of it. You getting you forget about it and you move on. I'm not saying you don't ever need to buy gifts for anybody again because you have birthdays, air nice gifts on your birthday. That's always nice. And and these companies can't target your birthdays. They don't know when your birthday is well, some do you know when your birthday is, but your birthday's not one date that is predetermined every single year that a company builds his profits around like Christmas for Halloween or Valentine's Day. I mean, cos literally build their budgets and their profits around you, blowing money on a holiday that's just stupid and a known ranting. Today I'm probably pretty negative, but I'm just tired of seeing people get tricked, scammed and stolen from, and that's what these big companies doing. So next time you go the action, except for today, think twice before buying into another holiday scam. Another event, like Valentine's Day is coming up. Think twice about that before you go, and you spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to show someone you love him whenever you could just do that any other time of the year by washing the dishes, taking the laundry or taking them to a nice dinner somewhere. You can literally do that any other day of the year. You don't have to choose one specific day, which is Valentine's Day, and they'll prey upon you. It'll be a massive trap. They're gonna overcharge you for everything inbound Times, day and the next day to go back to you half the price. Just be mindful, guys. So think twice before buying that next scam. Are you ready for Valentine's Day? What's after that? What's going to stock the shelves after Valentine's Day? Easter? I guarantee you goto Walmart. You'll see the next day after Valentine's Day. Eser stuff will already be up to prey on your kids aboutthe stupid egg hunting. All this other random stuff. It's so silly, guys don't fall for it. All right, So today I'm just gonna ask you Hey, goto on 25 dot com forward slash Thank you, um, and just head over there. Got a little gift for you are terrified dot com fort size. Thank you.
