Young Potential Gold Digger Asks How to Marry a Rich Man. A Rich Man Responds

I don't normally post on items concerning the red pill, gaming or any combination of the three.  It's not my forte and it's not something I am really interested in despite the fact I hold an opinion that there are aspects of its world view that I think are vital for young men; more history, geopolitics and economics over in my end of the pool.  I will make an exception in this instance because the article that was forwarded to me is just too funny.

I will issue a caveat in that this whole entire exchange could be a complete and utter fabrication, if you read the post you will see why, but nonetheless, I want to share it. My fiancee forwarded me an post from some blog called wetindy, never heard of it before and she has never mentioned it, and apparently a young 20 something woman asked what she needed to do to marry a wealthy man. The text below.

Not sure if a CEO has the time to reply to such things, but this is surely fun to read!lol

A young and pretty lady posted this on a popular forum:

Title: What should I do to marry a rich guy?

I’m going to be honest of what I’m going to say here. I’m 25 this year. I’m very pretty, have style and good taste. I wish to marry a guy with $500k annual salary or above. You might say that I’m greedy, but an annual salary of $1M is considered only as middle class in New York.

My requirement is not high. Is there anyone in this forum who has an income of $500k annual salary? Are you all married? I wanted to ask: what should I do to marry rich persons like you?

Among those I’ve dated, the richest is $250k annual income, and it seems that this is my upper limit.
If someone is going to move into high cost residential area on the west of New York City Garden(?), $250k annual income is not enough.

I’m here humbly to ask a few questions:

1) Where do most rich bachelors hang out? (Please list down the names and addresses of bars, restaurant, gym)
2) Which age group should I target?
3) Why most wives of the riches are only average-looking? I’ve met a few girls who don’t have looks and are not interesting, but they are able to marry rich guys.
4) How do you decide who can be your wife, and who can only be your girlfriend? (my target now is to get married)
Ms. Pretty
You can see what I assume is a picture of her from the blog post if you want to verify her assessment of herself.  My own opinion is that I can see why she thinks she is very attractive though there are tell tale signs of crazy.  She gets a response from someone who supposedly is the type of man she is looking for. It is priceless.

Dear Ms. Pretty,
I have read your post with great interest. Guess there are lots of girls out there who have similar questions like yours. Please allow me to analyse your situation as a professional investor.
My annual income is more than $500k, which meets your requirement, so I hope everyone believes that I’m not wasting time here.
From the standpoint of a business person, it is a bad decision to marry you. The answer is very simple, so let me explain.

Put the details aside, what you’re trying to do is an exchange of “beauty" and “money" : Person A provides beauty, and Person B pays for it, fair and square.
However, there’s a deadly problem here, your beauty will fade, but my money will not be gone without any good reason. The fact is, my income might increase from year to year, but you can’t be prettier year after year.

Hence from the viewpoint of economics, I am an appreciation asset, and you are a depreciation asset. It’s not just normal depreciation, but exponential depreciation. If that is your only asset, your value will be much worse 10 years later.

By the terms we use in Wall Street, every trading has a position, dating with you is also a “trading position".
If the trade value dropped we will sell it and it is not a good idea to keep it for long term - same goes with the marriage that you wanted. It might be cruel to say this, but in order to make a wiser decision any assets with great depreciation value will be sold or “leased".

Anyone with over $500k annual income is not a fool; we would only date you, but will not marry you. I would advice that you forget looking for any clues to marry a rich guy. And by the way, you could make yourself to become a rich person with $500k annual income.This has better chance than finding a rich fool.

Hope this reply helps.

J.P. Morgan CEO
The response is so perfectly red pill save for the first sentence of the last paragraph, that I strongly suspect that this is either a) entirely fabricated or b) that the person who responded is a troll with an epic trolling ability and red pill world view.  If this is whole exchange is indeed as it appears, then that young women got the best education in here entire life and a massive salvo from the first rate ship of the line the U.S.S Reality that has blown a whole below her ego's waterline.

It Needs To Be Said

A person with a newly-minted degree is entering a highly-competitive environment known as "work."  In this environment they are charged with one, and only one thing: Being worth more to the company, net-net, than they cost in compensation and associated expenses.
That's the beginning and end of it, when you get down to how business, hiring and "human resources" work out.  No business can stay operational if it operates at a net deficit in this regard and as an applicant, no matter your credentials, you are not special or an exception to this rule.

A quote from this blogger who says that he, or she, occupies the slot of CEO for a company.  It cannot be stressed enough that college should be viewed as an investment and that currently, as investments go, they are pretty terrible ones.

A Major Reason Why Obamacare Will Fail To Lower Health Care Costs

Obamacare was passed some years ago, and recently came into effect, in hopes that it would make health care more affordable.  Myself, and millions of other Americans, are extremely skeptical that it will accomplish this goal for a whole host of reason, however, one of the major reasons why it will fail has not been addressed by many health care reformers and detractors of obamacare.

Recently I went in for a physical and elected to have a comprehensive blood work tests done.  I recently have received my claim from my health insurance plan, a high deductible HSA, in regards to what I owe.  Below is the information posted directly from my account into this blog.

A Rare Good Law

Usually when a legislative body passes laws it is safe to assume that little real good will come from it. But there are cases when a law is passed and I actually think something good will come from it.  In this instance I am referring to a law that has passed with a seal of approval from a committee of Florida state senators.  This proposed law is the meant to reconcile an issue that anybody who has a concealed carry permit, or has taken a gun safety class, should know.  This issue is that the brandishing of a weapon, or firing off a warning shot, in the hopes of deterring someone who clearly intends you harm could land you in trouble.

'Progressive' Silicone Valley

Joel Kotkin has a pretty good piece concerning how the leftward shift of silicone valley could destabilize the democratic party.  For all the claims that republicans are the party of big business interests, and it isn't entirely without historical merit given that the the northeast had been its' traditional base until their political shift in the late 1960's, it becomes bit harder to maintain such a stance when you consider that the many of the most influential and wealthiest companies, and the leaders of those companies, in the United States are following a decidedly progressive line.  But progressive ideology has limits when it comes to many and the elite who run these companies are more than willing to advocate policies that are decidedly progressive when it suits their interest.

Joel postulates that this disconnect between the nominally progressive technology leaders and other parts of their base could be difficult to reconcile.  Historically there is every reason to believe that this will happen considering that political parties are simply amalgamation of interest groups and that the focus of the party is driven by the interest group that wields the most influence.  The republican party, despite all the rhetoric of the party as the conservative party, used to be quiet progressive relative to the time.  Party focus and allegiances change and this will happen within our lifetimes.  The real question is how?

Joel notes that the wages have dropped for black and latino minorities in silicon valley cities despite the wealth generated by those mega-tech firms.  While there is a possibility that the growing disconnect could cause an electoral revolt within the ranks, I am skeptical to a degree given how blacks are wedded to the democratic party despite historic racism and the empirically terrible results of their policies and the rapidly waning influence of unions throughout the country. At the same time there could be a general shift if working class individuals begin to see not only the failure of progressive politics, but also the hypocrisy of those elites.  This could potentially be a chance for republicans but I would consider it a remote one at this point and time. Most importantly, even if this did happen why should we care?  Unless the elites of the republican party actually begin to see a benefit of classical liberal ideology outside of the rhetorical, then a shift from the democrats to the republicans wouldn't actually mean a whole lot.
