After I was discharged from the military, I was 24 years old and broke. I didn’t have the skills to live in the civilian world. To call the next few years a struggle is an understatement. I tried running a business, but I failed to understand the complexities and was homeless within 18 months. We managed to scrape together some money and got the hell out of town. My wife, our two kids, and I moved to the Orlando area.

I worked from one job to another, usually working two jobs at a time, while I attended school. Each time I changed jobs, I made a bit more money than the job before. I had a part time job with a volunteer fire department, who was paying me to staff the station during the day while the volunteer force was at work. I worked a night job as well. We were doing better. Then the divorce came. I was homeless again.

Again, I worked my way into prosperity. Within a decade, I had bought a home. Then the bank crisis hit, I had to declare bankruptcy, and was broke again.

Now I own three houses (although one is for sale), and one is producing income as a rental. My net worth is in the 7 figures. I just didn’t give up. Pressley would have you believe that my success is because my skin color somehow gives me an advantage that she doesn’t have.

Rep Pressley calls this “failing up” as she sits in congress making $174,000 a year as a college dropout. In 2018, the year that she was elected, she had a negative net worth of -$12,500. In 2019, she owed $15,000 in back taxes to the IRS. By 2021, she was claiming a net worth of $60,000. So in three years, you made more than half a million bucks, yet only increased your net worth by $72,000? But that isn’t the big part of the story.

In 2024, her net worth crossed $1 million. So in two years, her salary totaled $348,000, but her net worth increased by over $900,000. Where did that money come from? Her husband, who spent 10 years in prison for being a drug dealer. He now owns a consultancy business, Conan Harris & Associates, a management consultant firm that “specializes in executive coaching, strategic planning, capacity building, and diversifying the pipeline of workforce leadership and personnel.” So he rakes in hundreds of thousands of dollars because businesses want to hear his thoughts on how to run a successful business, because being a convicted drug dealer with no formal business education is a skill set that many millionaires need to seek advice from.

I will leave that to my readers to speculate upon.

I see Pressley, Gov. Healy, Boston Mayorette, Michelle Wu and I think to myself “thank God I self-deported from MA in 1990. Gov. Dukakis almost appears competent compared to them. Almost.

“In 2024, her net worth crossed $1 million. So in two years, her salary totaled $348,000, but her net worth increased by over $900,000.”

Divemedic, she’s a piker. She’s so stupid she hasn’t used her position to become a multi-millionaire yet. She needs to take Pelosi lessons.

    She doesn’t have the seniority to secure a seat on powerful committees that wield the power needed to lure in big business bribes. That comes later.

      Good point. On to bigger and better things.

      But she/it is in congress with access to insider information, a Pelousy speciality. BTW, does she shave her head so it slides in her own ass easier?

She must have been thinking of Joe Biden

That is where the word “crook” enters the lexicon for “crooked politicians”, whom have been mentioned throughout recorded history, repeatedly.

With the exception of a literal handful, they are all on the take from the treasury and the sale of influence by every means possible. We are literally being impoverished more every day the current system continues to operate. No fix until it all collapses, then we will either fix it or devolve into warring kingdoms as did the roman empire and every other major society throughout history.

I loved the excuses when Sen. Dianne Feinstein died and they showed her fabulous wealth and her private Gulfstream jet that she owned yet she has never been anything but a politician.
The claim “oh it was her husband” but he was the same deal as Pressley’s husband — pay HIM off so your bribes are “legal”.
It just shows the blatant corruption and how our politicians sell us out every day.

    It’s the same reason why Hunter Biden is getting hundreds of thousands for his “paintings” and why he is hired to serve on the boards of large companies, even though he has no experience in running companies and doesn’t even speak the language.

    It’s the same reason why Chelsea Clinton got a job with a 7 figure salary right after college.

I can’t get enough of being lectured by useless cunts (male or female) who’ve never worked a day in their lives. I’m retiring in two weeks from a job where I produced something useful for 37 fucking years. Twats like this aren’t even useful as comfort women.

Waitwaitwait…there’s no white privilege??

So does that mean I have to give back all those bags of money they give me at the bank every week when I say the secret password, and give them the secret Whypeepo handshake?!?

Bastards! I knew it couldn’t last!

No one, but no one, fails upward faster than a black woman.

I’m sick of black women like her that have been wafted up on the warm thermals of white generosity due to DEI and misplaced guilt.

Her only skill has been to walk through one of the many doors that open for blacks.

[…] Miami Gardens has Florida’s largest percentage of blacks of any city in the state, with 71% of the city’s population being black. Only three percent of the city’s population is white. But that is just white people failing upwards, I guess.  […]
