A Nation Divided by Turmoil: Biden's Victory is America's Failure

Another long-winded, incoherent speech fraught with inaccuracies and false accusations.  As the polls have closed and ballots are meticulously being counted across key states, many deign to criminalize Trump for his boisterous proclamations and unorthodox leadership. However, the truth of the matter may be far more sinister than you care to imagine...Biden asserts that he and his party maintain the moral high ground in this tumultuous race for presidency. But do they really? In fact, the vast majority of Southern Democrats vehemently opposed a ban on slavery while the Republican party sought to win their freedom. Indeed, it may appear that times have changed... unless you bother to read the many defamatory statements made throughout Biden's long and storied political career -- statements targeting both women and African Americans. Although to be safe, let's assume his bigotry extended far beyond that which we've covered. So as it now seems more certain than ever that we'

Kanye West Enthusiastically Brags About Achieving Billionaire Status

Though not quite a rags-to-riches story, the tale of Kanye West's newly declared net worth is one you'll be hearing about for some time...  straight from the man himself.

A younger Kanye West at the 2009 Tribeca Film Festival; more than a decade before achieving his current net worth.

When interviewed by Forbes last summer, Mr. West simply stated "I’m not a numbers guy -- to ask me to somehow translate this to numbers is to ask your grandmother exactly what the recipe of the cake was.”

But when it comes to the subject of one number, the sneaker mogul seems to care quite a lot. The man has been so singularly focused on attaining recognition for his financial achievements that he's purposely denigrated more than a few journalists for not recognizing his wealth. At the time, he claimed to have been "disrespected" and "purposely snubbed" by news correspondents and finance magazines alike.

Things grew even more heated when he failed to appear on Forbes Magazine's annual billionaires list. He had no qualms about publicly expressing his feelings, quickly claiming to be a victim of racial discrimination and suppression. Of course it goes without saying that he wasn't overly pleased upon seeing his sister-in-law, Kylie Jenner, being among those counted on the list.

It wasn't until the artist tasked his team with the numeric challenge of sorting through his financial records that he was able to put forward proof of his net worth. This cemented his status as a billionaire and finally laid his grievance to rest.

However, it hardly takes an internal team of financial experts to reveal what we already knew: the man isn't hurting for cash. One look at his Los Angeles mansion and you'll be scrambling to pick your jaw off the ground. It's a work of art in a very true and literal sense. Such is the level of elegance and refinement that even when it came to the use of plaster, a special Belgian variety was chosen which if scuffed, would require a special crew from Europe to handle repairs.

And this is ignoring his additional properties, which include among them a $14 million dollar Wyoming ranch; the perfect counterpart to Mrs. Kardashian's property, also located in the "Cowboy State." Between the pair, nearly 10,000 acres of land is owned in the area -- an irrefutably vast swathe of land.

So I guess we could sum it all up by saying that the only thing bigger than the man's wallet is his disproportionately large ego. It seems odd that one would care so much about flashing their wealth in the public eye whilst tens of millions across the nation are struggling from financial loss while gazing steadily towards an uncertain future. But hey... that's Kanye West, I suppose.

Do you disagree with my assessment? Was it overly harsh or distasteful? If so, what redeeming value does he offer apart from wealth? Feel free to comment down below and don't forget to follow me on Facebook.
