Second Gilded Age compliments of Tech Money

We currently must be going through the Second Gilded Age.

The reason I say this is because the wealth distribution today is mind boggling.

With all the wealth in Silicon Valley…it’s like these people have no concept of reality.

SV elite are  lucky to make it big.  But, the fact is they will always have gobs of money regardless of some catastrophe.  Their children will carry on the lifestyle. The money will always be there. It will never go away unless they are stupid with money.

All they really care about is keeping their money safe. They show us their privileged lifestyle on social media and pretend they are blessed beyond belief…but I know that most of them are hoping that UBER goes public, or that the economy doesn’t suffer a huge correction.

None of them seem to work really hard. Mark Zuckerberg recently took off three months for paternity leave because of his company policy.  Most of society doesn’t have that same choice.  He also felt obliged to pen a heartfelt letter to his newborn child…extolling his admiration and dreams for her. Oh…and also shared it with the world.

Another thing Silicon Valley elitists spend a lot of time are on private jets. THey always seem to be traveling to Hawaii. They show us the wine they are drinking. They are the first in line for gadgets, or Tesla’s. They do podcasts, or when they quit a job put out a press release.  They need time off when some tragedy occurs.  They talk up products which sometimes fail…think of Juicero.  They certainly skew democrat even thought they represent the .5% of society.  They aren’t spending lots of time in the urban cities talking about democratic social issues. Most of the time they are jetsetting, buying real estate or sleeping.

With  the recent tragedies  in the world, I haven’t heard many of them stepping up and having a voice.   But, just like the first Gilded Age, things will change one day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kim and Chrissy’s Dinner Date

2eafede800000578-3329020-image-m-21_1448184968235

Kim and Chrissy’s pregnancy styles finally met last night.

They had a date night out on the town.

My guess is the conversation centered around pregnancy, babies, and fashion.

Poor John.  He probably had to stay quiet the whole dinner.

I imagined what the dinner conversations were about especially because there were two pregnant ladies at the dinner table.  

Here are my made up scenarios of what might have been discussed:

  1. First, Kim dominated the convo once they sat down for dinner. Chrissy complimented her pregnancy style.  Kim smiled and told her that wearing coats was great since it hides a growing ass.  Chrissy agreed and took notes on her Samsung…. especially when Kim said near the end of the pregnancy she will need to shop in the men’s department for larger overcoats.
  2. Second, Chrissy told Kim that she was worried about getting really fat.  Kim told her not to worry…the coat will cover any problems.
  3. As the night went on Kim mentioned to Chrissy that she was so over being pregnant because her rings didn’t fit anymore.  Chrissy didn’t understand this concept but shook her head in agreement.
  4. Once dinner arrived, Chrissy was excited to pig out again.  She mentioned her food intake for the day and Kim just continued to smile looking at her phone.
  5. During a lull in the conversation, John piped in and asked where Kayne was but was quickly shushed by Chrissy.  Shut up John!
  6. After all parties split the checks and gave goodbye hugs….Kim said they should hang out again especially when Chrissy’s  bump gets bigger.  She mentioned going on a leisurely walk in matching stretchy dresses and coats would be so much fun!

They left on their merry way.

Of course these are only imaginary scenarios but it’s fun to think that these convos might have happened.
