Snoop Dogg: Unload your 401K!
#1
I value Snoop Dogg's financial advice about as much as I do that of Jim Cramer which is to say it's worth about what I paid for it. Either way it's hilarious to hear someone who enjoys rapping about capping people and killing cops say that the guns are the problem. If I remember correctly he also got nailed for carrying an illegal firearm into an airport a while back and several other instances of illegal possession of a firearm. I suppose if you buy an illegal gun off the street or steal one you really aren't supporting the gun industry so it's okay right? It's like buying a DVD from Goodwill!



^He's holding that sign like he's had some practice!

For context, this is the guy saying guns are bad...:



Way to go Calvin! I wonder how many of these black actors and musicians would still be so anti-gun if they knew the first gun control laws were to keep guns out of the hands of blacks...

What a fucking moron.

Financial advice from a guy who smokes more dope than Tommy Chong seems legit.

Everyone should cash out their 401K and put it into managed funds with a reputable investment firm.

After no growth in my 401K (actually, negative growth due to inflation and rapid cost of living increases), I opened a trading account and am on track to a completely self funded retirement with no need for social security.
tolerance for failure meter... LOW

For the people who make DVDs their wet dream would be if when the DVD left your house it would evaporate in your hands. They hate that there is a used DVD market and are actively trying to shut it down. Have you noticed how when you buy video games today they contain a one time use code for the online components / DLC? That so if you sell it to gamestop the person who buys it can't get full use out of it because he publisher doesn't get their piece of the sale. All content producers are looking for ways to shut down 2nd hand markets.

Its tongue and cheek sarcasm, but if you buy a stolen gun off the street you're not really supporting the gun industry directly the same way the publisher of a DVD doesn't get their piece from Goodwill sales.

That holds true for any used item, regardless of what it is. You buy a used gun and you're not directly supporting the gun industry just as though it were stolen.

Almost every manufacturer hates the used & rental markets, unless they can profit from it in some way.

But I understand the point you're making now, I was wondering if there was some drug/gang/ghetto subtext or reference or something for buying used DVDs from Goodwill...a practice I've indulged in from time to time. Wasn't sure if I was 'marked' for it in some way Tongue
