Jeff Bezos' net worth grew to over $100 billion after a Black Friday stock surge

Oh FFS! This system is gonna crash someday and when it does it sure won't be pretty. What can one possibly even do with that much money? Does he plan on having a pyramid built for him when he dies or something? It's enough to live thousands of lives of luxury, and it's not like you can take it with you when you die. Meanwhile this guy pays crap wages to his warehouse workers and won't pay to have air conditioning put in for them. And of course, the orange idiot in charge wants to give people like this MORE money. At the current rate I wouldn't be shocked to see the first trillionaires pop up in a few decades. What a country where one person can have more wealth than the bottom 30% of the country combined. Trickle down golden showers for all!

Manson got me thinking about how unjust our healthcare system really is

Most people are probably aware of Charles Manson dying lately after 40+ years in prison. What really burns me is realizing society paid for this guy to have free healthcare/dental/etc for all that time. WHY IN THE HELL does our society care more about the health of convicted PRISONERS than free citizens? I guess if you get some kind of illness you'd better just get thrown in prison if you want healthcare. What kind of message does this send?

Why are all of the mass shooters men?

Killing certainly isn't exclusive to men as there have been plenty of female murderers out there, but as far as I know every single mass shooting event has involved a male shooter. I really start to wonder why that is. Is it all just lonely men who cannot find a girlfriend and take it out on society(Elliot Rodger being a prime example)? Or is there something specific to the male psychological state which causes men to take this course of action?

I fully blame the media for these mass shootings

You know why these sick bastards do this? It's because they've learned that the media will make sure NOBODY forgets their name and the story of their life. Just look at that Paddock guy who shot up Vegas. The media are still running stories on him and trying to figure out why he did it. That's EXACTLY what he wanted in all likelihood. He was a random loser nobody with gambling problems, and now he'll go down in history as one of the most infamous murderers in our nation. Suddenly everybody is examining his life and trying to learn everything they can about him. Same for Lanza, Holmes, Cho, Rodgers, and all the other sickos who do this. Seems like most of the people who do this are just losers who just want their name to be remembered for something, and the media give them their wish. This has all turned into some sick 'game' where these losers try to outdo the others and get the new 'high score'.
