Guess instead of being beaten at their own game they'd prefer to bring back #eattherich?

I wouldn't mind. Break out the pitchforks and the guillotine like it was meant to be.

The patricians really don’t like it when the plebs forget their station do they?

Well, you can sure bet that SEC will step in, to 'protect' and dems of the like of Pelosi and Biden will regulate the s--- out of the retail investing. 

 

It's fun and game until people will start losing money, in the meanwhile you have HFTs getting rich and some craze on the OTC deals, where hedge funds reposition, while some smaller funds will  suffer as a collateral damage. 

I wonder what FED thought that will happen with 0% to negative yields and helicopter money dropped onto the market. Inflation had to materialize somewhere, if not in the real economy and prices it was bound to appear in stock market. The whole thing is so inflated and out of touch from fundamentals, that's just nutts. You have real economy suffering worst gdp in decades in many developed countries, yet stock markets are sky high at the record values.

Oh, they will also protect all the rich repubs. Do you really think there is a difference between Pelosi and Mitch McConnell?

I just realized that both have been in office longer than I've been alive.

Donnors, i think there is some difference 😉 not that it would matter in the overall, but the details are sometimes important

@Amentep

Seems that without Trump, this thread looks more desolate. 😂

Maybe its time to merge both politcs threads again? 🤔

@Darkpriest Maybe, but a number of people seemed to like the split, so I figure we'll wait and see a bit longer.

Dodger Stadium’s COVID-19 vaccination site shut down after protesters gather at entrance

so, a group o' antivaxxers and alt-right crackpots who weren't satisfied with refusing to volunteer for a covid-19 vaccine is now active trying to prevent other people from receiving their scheduled vaccines.

so it goes.

HA! Good Fun!

RBG was replaced by a body double

The pedophiliac lizard people will be furious! Another brilliant scheme of theirs has been uncovered by the intrepid posters at QAnon or something

Seems like a major misstep to kill off the body double before Trump left office.

Put fascists and sociopaths on your ignore list.

Quote

Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

First on CNN: Trump's impeachment defense team leaves less than two weeks before trial

while he was in the wh, there were at least a couple people who, if for no other reason than self preservation, would point out that trump's impulses towards self immolation were ill-advised. those people clear did not go to florida with donald.

if steve bannon is the voice of reason, you may have a problem.

rudy, meet your newest problem:

 

win defamation regarding an issue o' arguable public interest is not ez, but rudy is providing casebook examples which don't happen in rl 'cause nobody is so reckless. as noted in a previous post, dominion doesn't genuine want rudy, but am suspecting the lincoln project lawyers are hopeful rudy doesn't retract and apologize by february 3.

HA! Good Fun!
