    Crypto DOES make sense if the world continues without massive infrastructure upheaval. Its value is speculative, but its strength is that its not a centralized currency subject to tampering by governments.

    Government maybe not, but viruses and hackers 100 percent

    That is incorrect, as a public decentralized ledger, crypto is far less susceptible to viruses and hacking than any other type of fiat money in even a bank (thats basically a closed database housed at the bank's centralized home base)

    It is hackable only if someone stealing your keys and driving off with your car also counts as hacking

    The US is just doing what Canada asks, and they're so screwed for food/goods, they need every truck that can cross the border to cross it.

    Trades, even J-men and Masters are working for min wage now, just to keep working. Machinist, Carpenter, Drywall, Electrician, Millwright, Mig Welder, Pipe Welder etc etc etc all win wage job's now. Some specific trades, that cannot be cheaply imported or outsourced (yet) are still rolling in it, but the saturation of cheap labor into the major trades is unbelievable.

    I think Crypto is the next big .COM bust waiting to happen. A buddy trades in it, and he's already been scammed multiple times. The ability to skim and de-fraud is only just starting to be explored and exploited.

    LTL companies are the answer, the worlds thirst for next day shipping, is going to be the goldmine for those willing to jump in now, and carve out a niche for themselves. The UPS feeder guys I meet, who run the double and triple trailers pin to pin are doing 150K + with paid benefits, working 5 days a week. My B-Box on my WPG to YYC loads, is almost always UPS now. My Calgary to WPG B-Box is Purolator or UPS. The company is doing so well with pikes, I just got my second raise since May. I believe its mostly because we're working with the LTL's now.

    Ontario sounds like a really ####ty place to live. Glad I work for one of their contractors, and not for them lol. XPO/FedEx/Purolator sounds better.

    Realistically how does one get into the US? I'm trying to look for companies that might sponsor with litle to no success. Is it even possible? I should just get a tan and cross through the southern border, only ####### play by the rules in this crooked world.
