The Sat Standard - June 13th, 2020

Thought of the week from Marty Bent:
When you turn off the news and walk outside. Things aren’t as bad as they seem. The corporate media is a DOS attack on sanity.

Thought of the week from Matt Odell:
I often hear "bitcoin doesn't interest me, I'm not a finance person."

Ironically, the beauty of bitcoin is you don't have to be. In the current system you're expected to manage a diversified investment portfolio or pay someone to do it. Good money makes that optional.
