Gunblr I giveth this gift unto you
Is this from The Unit?
Bless this post.
And so it was good.
What a legend.
That’s Oklahoma for ya.
“If anyone should be on trial here, it should be Congress.” Sen. Rand Paul
WILL VOTE FOR, NO QUALMS.
Posters in Washington State Capitol claim gun laws are just like anti-gay discrimination. Just no.
If you believe you cannot limit one’s right to marry, you cannot also not extend that belief to one’s right to keep and bear arms. I mean I guess you could if you were a massive hypocrite.
Plus, if you believe that gay individuals are so discriminated against would it not be best for those people to be able to defend themselves, hold the source of power of the people (yes, guns are the source of the people’s power; if you doubt me, go reexamine history).
Who runs Think Progress? Oh, that’s right…hypocrites.
Is it fun in the happy unicorn rainbow dream world you come from? Rights are given at birth, and are only kept by threat of force.
That’s the real world that we adults live in.
The Man Who Thrifted A Ferrari
Who’d have thought you could thrift a Ferrari?
Matthew R. is an inveterate thrifter. He says he works seventy hours a week, and he’s been buying and selling second-hand clothes since 1998. Not long ago, he started a consignment service, Luxeswap, and not only do their auctions often crop up in our eBay picks, but I’ve personally trusted him to consign a number of clothes in the past. He’s one of the best menswear sellers on eBay. But truly: I had no idea.
This week, Matthew bought a Ferrari. With thrift store money.
Here’s how it happened…
Matthew started thrifting in the late nineties, and quickly learned that when he found something good that didn’t fit him, he could sell it on eBay and make a little dough. The first item was an Emporio Armani sportcoat. It sold for fifty bucks. Like most of us, Matthew took the extra money and spent it on clothes and small indulgences.
In 2007, he read a book called One Red Paperclip. It was written by a man, Kyle MacDonald, who traded a paperclip for a pen for a doorknob for a camping stove and on and on for a year until he had traded for a new house. Matthew thought: how could I turn my own little hobby into something special?
So he started a savings account.
His business money went into a business account. His personal money - the money from his own personal purchases - went into the savings account. And year after year, that money grew.
Then, last week, he took the money and bought a Ferrari.
Matthew says: “This car was born of things that nobody else wanted. Things that people discarded. I wanted to be able to say I thrifted a Ferrari. And I did.”
A genuinely remarkable achievement.
