And on top of all this SCHEDULED stuff, I’ve got a sneaking suspicion there may be some unscheduled surprises between now and next Friday.
Interesting perspective of the past few hundred years. Africa and Asia don’t’ seem to be very much into the whole “democracy” concept. Press Play……..
I fully expected this kind of thing, but not nearly this soon:
This sort of thing seriously nauseates me. Those who do crimes on the LONG side (say, for instance, the founders of WeWork) are still heralded as heroes. I mean, hell, the founder of Nikola was practically carted off in chains, and it’s still a public company! Elizabeth Holmes was the rare exception to a bullish criminal getting in trouble (umm, although she’s still free as a bird, enjoying life on a huge estate; who knows if they’ll ever send her to the pokey).
But let the market slip a few percent, and suddenly it’s the big bad BEARS that are the cause of all life’s troubles. One of a million people is a true bear. And the rest of the people despise them. Just wait until this stupid market is down 50%. I’ll probably be blogging from prison. Just watch.
