After the military caused a coup because of made-up "voter fraud" concerns.

I wonder where they got that idea from?
Screw her. She defended the indefensible; the military's ethnic cleansing of Rohingya Muslims.

Re: H.R. 8932

Not the highest priority bill at the moment (they should drop everything and get the stimulus passed). I think this is political posturing by Gabbard. However, I don't think you are going to find much disagreement in the idea that trans-women should not be allowed in competitive women's sports. The...

Re: Gamestop, AMC, and the Angry Hedge Funds

This is still one of the oldest frauds in the book. That they presented it as being some anti-hedge operation doesn't change that. No sir. This will surely be classified as fraud shortly (since the 1% run dis bitch). This is a totally new phenomenon that currently can't be classified as fraud. If t...

Re: Gamestop, AMC, and the Angry Hedge Funds

I believe Rogan's point is that with pyramid schemes, those who get in early make bank while those at the bottom of the pyramid who join in late will lose out. The same is true with GME. bo_sox, you joined early and cashed out for a profit. Those who are buying now at $300 will not be making a prof...

Re: Gamestop, AMC, and the Angry Hedge Funds

It means my stake is sold, and you implied that I was unable to speak objectively because I had a stake. No hedge fund could have done what reddit did in this case, without being held accountable. The problem for regulators, in this case, is the flat structure. No one investor is responsible. But w...

Lol @ people thinking the structural problems of late-stage capitalism aren't political, but ok, please continue.
I was more interested in the hypocrisy aspect of the whole situation.

Gamestop, AMC, and the Angry Hedge Funds

So, now that the common folk of the interwebs have figured out the power of coordinated dumping the Feds, Wall Street, and Scrooge McDuck are pissed. Do they have a legitimate reason to be pissed? Can the question be answered with more questions? I question that, but... “How is the Redditors’ collab...

Re: Protests

Getting out in the streets, and yelling about perceived/actual injustice does very little to move the needle. Violence does even less.

Organizers these days suck.

Re: Bristol shows the way

Maybe, you transform the Executive branch into a decentralized cabinet. Secretary of State sets foreign policy agenda, Transportation does their jam... Either nominated by Congress or positions are elected by popular vote every two years. I think it would be a great idea!

Re: Bristol shows the way

An interesting thought. It wouldn't work here in the United States at a Federal level without term limits placed on Congress. You'd have the same people running the country for decades. The Executive branch also controls cabinet nominations, foreign policy, SCOUTS nominations, and so on. Still thoug...

Re: Joe Biden sworn in as 46th US President

Can that be true? A real failure if so. My understanding is that the elderly vote Republican and die from Covid. So managing to kill more young Democrats means they have been put at risk, forced to work, commute, and study in unsafe environments, to prop up the profits of a few billionaires. I woul...

Why is the pot not decriminalized? I demand that more important matters be put on hold immediately.

Re: What colour are Dargorygel's eyes & why do we never see Dargorygel & Xi Jinpeng in the same room?

My current working theory: Das Urkomisch Ausglassen Dargorygel is actually anti-matter Xi Jinpeng. If the pair were near one another, they would begin to orbit one another, resonate, and then end the galaxy in a brilliant explosion of hellfire. Count your blessings they stay thousands of miles apart...

You did it! A 78 year old, white guy millionaire is finally President! The progress you fought so hard for on Facebook and Twitter is reality.
