Scams and Side Hustles

My latest idea is to transition to a blog about the many means of getting by. The economy has left me with a decent job that pays very little, I am just able to pay my bills and buy food without a dollar left to put into savings. Lately, I've been picking friends brains for ideas on lucrative side hustles. Most ideas that seem viable (meaning not requiring a whole lot of work) require a lot of risk, and are very illegal. I would never waste my time judging folks who are doing what they can to get by, in fact I believe I should be as supportive as possible as a means of solidarity with the masses scrapping by under this shit-system. So here I start the scam and side hustle blog.

(update) SCRATCH THAT IT'S BEEN DONE, KINDA - Scamplots -may need some tweaking...

The true question is, Did John Brown draw his sword against slavery and thereby lose his life in vain? And to this I answer ten thousand times, No! No man fails, or can fail, who so grandly gives himself and all he has to a righteous cause. No man, who in his hour of extremest need, when on his way to meet an ignominious death, could so forget himself as to stop and kiss a little child, one of the hated race for whom he was about to die, could by any possibility fail. -Fredrick Douglass

The Women Militants of Asgarda

IN THE UKRAINE, A COUNTRY WHERE FEMALES ARE VICTIMS OF SEXUAL TRAFFICKING AND GENDER OPPRESSION, a new tribe of empowered women is emerging.
