MyWay is a good newswire source; no ads, no popups, no crap. It's nice.

"I sound like a broken record ..."

True. But I suppose that's in Cassandra's job description.

"Yesterday, I pointed out that even the richest traitors on earth, rolling in dough like pigs in a mud pit, most couldn't buy more than three or four modern works of art, forget ancient ones like Matisse or Picasso!"

And you were wrong. While it is true that some artists' works have set records recently, it depends on what you're in the market for. The highest-priced item is not representative of the whole.

Picasso, for instance. The thing to remember about Picasso is that he lived a long time, and turned out a lot of stuff. There's a LOT of Picasso around. And you can find a Matisse for several million, or for several tens of thousands.

I prefer Miro to Picasso, and was actually pleased to find several online that are even within my price range, if I wanted to buy one.

I am speaking of the top art not the lesser stuff. Of course, billionaires can buy endless sofa art if they want. But they are driving up the price of select pieces of art. And running up IOUs to do this! Arg.

"I am speaking of the top art not the lesser stuff."

No, you're using your standard rhetorical ploy of presenting an extreme situation as the norm. You said,

"even the richest traitors on earth, ... couldn't buy more than three or four modern works of art..."

and I called bullshit.

Gads, you are dumb. I was joking but not joking.


The big players are bidding up artwork with each other and they have bid it so high, THEY ARE BORROWING MONEY to do it!

Now Smith, I have bid on artwork in Manhattan at the Big Houses in the past. You have to present the cash or a bank document showing what you have BEFORE they accept a bid! It is most tricky.

That's not my problem, is it? I've long since given up being all outraged because someone does something I personally would not choose to do. Art speculation affects me... not at all.

You can offer practically any kind of service using the internet. You just have to make sure there is a market for it and that you can actually fulfill job orders. Some of the most common internet jobs involve clerical jobs such data entry, performing tasks as a virtual assistant, web development, word processing, telemarketing, book keeping and others. You can work as a copy writer, be a sales representative or even become a pro-blogger. You can set up a business that targets clients in your own town or people halfway around the globe.
