Editing just to say thanks to everyone who has contributed. The responses make perfect sense!
Literally just got banned for posting “I’m going to sell all my stocks for weed. Because if I’m gonna burn all my money, I might as well smoke it” as a satirical joke about the market tanking the past 3 weeks. And I got BANNED. Not just banned, but also prevented from even contacting the moderators to figure out what the hell I did wrong. Have the shit on that sub is jokes, bots, and stupid shit, I really don’t see what the fucking problem is here. It’s pissing me the fuck off so I just had to rant about it(since I can’t talk to the fucking mods, u/zjz and others)
That subreddit and this market are just fucked. It’s all got me down today and WSBs authoritarian reign isn’t fucking helping. I just wanted to fucking be part of the fucking conversation and talk with others. FUCK.
Okay I’m done, thanks.
Edit: to anyone saying this post is pointless, I disagree. If anything it shows how people stand divided on any issue there is. Half the people are upvoting, agreeing in the comments, or giving awards while the other half are saying “you deserved it” blah blah blah. It’s now a discussion and that’s how things move forward.

##Covid relief package
The Senate parliamentarian ruled on Thursday that the federal minimum wage cannot be increased through the budget reconciliation process, dealing a blow to Democrats’ hope of including the provision in the Covid-10 relief package. Due to Republican opposition, there is no way to pass a standalone bill to raise the minimum wage. The reconciliation process allows legislation to pass with a simple 51-vote majority, avoiding filibuster attempts. In order to move forward with the increase as part of the relief bill, the parliamentarian will either have to be overruled or removed.
Who is the parliamentarian? Elizabeth MacDonough previously worked as a lawyer before joining the office of the Senate Parliamentarian in 1999. She was appointed to Parliamentarian in 2012 by then-Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and retained by Mitch McConnell when he became majority leader in 2015. Members of both parties have praised her ability and past rulings.
The ruling: Budget reconciliation is meant for legislation that changes spending, revenues, and the federal debt limit. The Byrd rule allows senators to block provisions of reconciliation bills that are “extraneous” to the budget - in other words, provisions that don’t change the level of spending or revenues. The parliamentarian ruled that the minimum wage increase violates the Byr... keep reading on reddit ➡
*Edited “a guy” to “guys” because it isn’t just one guy.
I get a message nearly every day from guys on here who think they have the guts to be very forward/rude/gross/inappropriate behind the safety and anonymity of their computer screen. As soon as I don’t reciprocate, these guys turn into middle school bullies. I cannot believe they haven’t grown out of that yet. I just want to say for the record, nothing makes you seem more like an insecure coward than reverting to your sweaty, pimply pubescent reserve of hurtful comebacks when a woman won’t behave the way you want. Go finish your Kraft Dinner from the pan and jerk off, stop saying things to women online that you would never ever dream of saying to their faces.

It would be cool if anyone could build with the nearby resources rather than needing to carry them
