“The penthouse is always next to the outhouse” is an old saying that originated before indoor plumbing was a thing. I’m not sure who originally coined this term, but I originally heard the saying from my father and he said he had heard it from his father.
The meaning behind the saying is that no matter how well you do in life, there will always be an outhouse nearby. It’s a very short path from luxury to shit. Indoor plumbing may be common in most countries in 2021, but I think the quote still applies to other aspects of life.
Look at what happened with Rudy Guiliani this week.
Rudy was the man behind breaking up the mafia that allegedly controlled concrete in New York City & Rudy was the mayor of New York whenever 9/11 happened. How was he rewarded for a life of service? His law license was suspended this week for “lying” about an election that was obviously rigged. The same people that say the election wasn’t rigged are the same people that say food stamps aren’t abused or used to fuel organized crime. I’m 100% sure that American food stamps fund more drug habits in America any given week than Bitcoin does in an entire year.
There is a huge fraction in America that wants to enjoy the benefits the constitution provides them, but they do not want others to enjoy those same rights. Most of the major tech companies are censoring anything that says 2020’s elections were fraudulent or that COVID was mostly a scam. We think this censorship is not only dangerous but illegal. Rudy Guiliani should have his law license reinstated immediately and anyone who threatens lawyers about speaking out about the truth or questioning the “truth” should be ashamed of themselves.
In summary, “The penthouse is always next to the outhouse” is just a constant reminder that no matter how high you rise in this plane of existence that it can all be taken away from you. Be happy with what the universe has given you and do the best you can with it. If it all goes away, fuck it. You didn’t come into this life with much either!
